Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Deicide (Japanese: 神殺し God Killer) is a skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. A passive skill linked to Falchion, Nosferatu, Exalted Falchion, and the Binding Blade, Deicide grants its wielder the ability to deal the finishing blow against Duma. It is hidden for the latter three weapons.

Weapons Binding BladeExalted FalchionFalchion
Black magic Nosferatu


  • Deicide is the only skill in Shadows of Valentia that is attached to a black magic spell, in this case Nosferatu. It is also one of two skills in the game that is attached to any magic spell, the other being Anti-Terrors attached to the white magic spell Seraphim.
    • Deicide's attachment to Nosferatu is presumably in reference to a glitch in the original Gaiden; Noseferatu is able to slay Duma. In the original game this behavior was clearly unintended, as doing this causes minor graphical glitches with the closing scenes and credits.
