First game

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light

The Devil Sword (Japanese: デビルソード Devil Sword) is a fairly rare sword-type weapon in the Fire Emblem series. It is a high-risk high-reward weapon, typically with a low weapon level and high damage output, but with the possibility of the user getting damaged instead of the target. Damage done to the user upon backfire is the damage that would have been done to the target had the attack not backfired.

The Devil Sword made its first appearance in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light. It has appeared less commonly than its more famous axe counterpart, having only appeared in the games set on Archanea and in Three Houses.
