Dimitri Alexandre Blaiddyd (pronounced /dɪ'mitɹi ɑlɛɡ'zɑndɹə 'bleɪθɪd/[key]; Japanese: ディミトリ=アレクサンドル=ブレーダッド Dimitri Alexandre Blaiddyd) is one of the three main characters, alongside Edelgard and Claude,[2] appearing in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. He is the prince of the Kingdom of Faerghus and the leader of the Blue Lions house at the Officers Academy.


Dimitri is the crown prince of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus. In Imperial Year 1171, Dimitri's maternal stepsister Princess Edelgard of the Adrestian Empire came to Faerghus with her uncle, Lord Arundel, and the two became fast friends. When she returned to the Empire in 1174, he gave her a dagger as a parting gift. In 1176, he was the sole survivor of the Tragedy of Duscur, in which his father King Lambert and many of his knights and friends were murdered, allegedly by assassins from the Duscur region. This incident permanently warped the young prince, leaving him with a deep-seated grudge against the perpetrators and a hidden capacity for extreme violence, although he always suspected that the people of Duscur had been scapegoated. In the aftermath of the Tragedy, he saved a young Duscur commoner named Dedue from being lynched, leading him to develop an extremely strong sense of loyalty towards Dimitri.

In 1180, Dimitri enrolled at the Officers Academy at Garreg Mach Monastery along with several of his friends and people from his kingdom. Around this time, a mercenary named Byleth rescued him from bandits hired by a mysterious masked individual calling themself the Flame Emperor. Byleth was rewarded with a teaching post at the Officers Academy, and their choice of which house to lead would have far-reaching consequences for all of Fódlan.

In all routes, Dimitri spends the next year studying at the Officers Academy along with the Blue Lions. Eventually, the Flame Emperor is unmasked as Edelgard, and she assumes the Adrestian throne and declares war on the Church of Seiros in order to destroy the Crest system she believes is stagnating the world. Edelgard launches a full-scale invasion of Garreg Mach Monastery and Dimitri fights alongside the Church, but the monastery is overrun and Byleth goes missing. In all routes other than the Crimson Flower route, after the fall of Garreg Mach, Rhea vanishes and Dimitri returns to Faerghus. However, the mage Cornelia frames him for the murder of his regent and uncle Rufus, and he only escapes when Dedue sacrifices himself and is presumably executed in his stead. Believing all of his friends and family dead, Dimitri spends the next five years living as a vagrant in the Garreg Mach region and mercilessly slaughtering Imperial soldiers and bandits, and his mental state continues to deteriorate until he becomes completely obsessed with revenge on Edelgard.

Silver Snow

If Byleth chooses to lead the Black Eagles and then chooses to remain with Rhea and the church and oppose Edelgard, Dimitri eventually regroups with the former Blue Lions and raises an army under his banner. He makes his way to Gronder Field and attacks both Imperial and Alliance forces, but his army perishes in the conflict. After news of the three-way battle reaches the resistance army, Byleth goes to the outskirts of Garreg Mach and sees Dimitri, who laments the fact that he couldn't kill Edelgard as well as the deaths of Rodrigue, Gustave, and (presumably) Dedue. He then tries to explain his decision now that he lost the majority of his resources and people in his army, but he disappears, and Seteth denies seeing him when he approaches Byleth later and concludes that Dimitri wished that they guided him so that he wouldn't have died on the battlefield. It remains ambiguous whether his final appearance was all a dream in Byleth's head, a ghost, or the real Dimitri.

Azure Moon

If Byleth chooses to lead the Blue Lions, Dimitri and his classmates become their pupils. Dimitri accompanies Byleth directly throughout their time teaching at the Officers Academy. As the school year progresses, Dimitri's hidden rage begins to surface, and he comes to hold the belief that the Flame Emperor orchestrated the Tragedy of Duscur. Eventually, when Edelgard is revealed to be the Flame Emperor, the revelation of her actions coupled with his continued belief that she caused the Tragedy of Duscur cause Dimitri to suffer a total psychotic breakdown, and he vows to kill Edelgard with his own two hands.

Five years after the fall of Garreg Mach, Byleth returns the day before the millennium festival and reunites with Dimitri and the rest of the former Blue Lions. The two begin a full-scale war against Adrestia, using Garreg Mach Monastery as a base of operations. After killing an Adrestian general named Randolph tasked with retaking the monastery, Dimitri receives allies and the Heroes' Relic Areadbhar from Duke Rodrigue Fraldarius and launches a counterinvasion of the Empire, unconcerned about the people of Faerghus suffering under Imperial tyranny. At Gronder Field, he engages both the Empire and the Leicester Alliance in a three-way battle and emerges victorious, but Randolph's younger sister Fleche attempts to assassinate him in revenge for Randolph's death. Rodrigue sacrifices himself to save Dimitri, causing him to realize what a horrible ruler and person he has been and resolve to atone for his sins.

Dimitri returns to the Kingdom capital of Fhirdiad and kills Cornelia, who implicates his stepmother Patricia in the Tragedy of Duscur before perishing. With the Kingdom back under his control, Dimitri reinforces battered Leicester forces and kills Lord Arundel. In the aftermath, Alliance leader Claude unexpectedly gifts him his Relic bow Failnaught, disbands the Alliance, cedes the right to govern its subjects to Dimitri, reveals that Rhea is being held prisoner in the Imperial capital of Enbarr, and departs from Fódlan. With the combined forces of Faerghus and the former Alliance at his back, Dimitri launches a proper invasion of the Empire. As his forces approach Enbarr, Dimitri attempts to parley with Edelgard and learn her motivations for starting a world war, but the two conclude that their ideas of justice cannot be resolved diplomatically and they must fight for the future of Fódlan. Dimitri besieges Enbarr and defeats Edelgard in a climactic final battle. Afterwards, he makes one final attempt to reconcile with her, but she throws his old dagger into his shoulder, forcing him to execute her. In the aftermath, Rhea is rescued and retires from her role as Archbishop, and Byleth succeeds her. Dimitri is crowned the ruler of a united Fódlan under Faerghus' banner.

Verdant Wind

If Byleth chooses to lead the Golden Deer, Dimitri eventually regroups with the former Blue Lions and raises an army under his banner. He makes his way to Gronder Field and attacks both Imperial and Alliance forces, but is defeated by Claude. Dimitri attempts to pursue the retreating Edelgard, but is cornered and unceremoniously executed by Imperial soldiers.

Crimson Flower

If Byleth chooses to lead the Black Eagles and remains loyal to Edelgard after she is revealed to be the Flame Emperor, Dimitri returns to Faerghus after the fall of Garreg Mach and formally takes the throne as king. He provides Rhea and the remaining Knights of Seiros asylum as they do battle with Edelgard and the Empire over the next five years. Eventually, Byleth returns and decisively tips the scale of the war in favor of the Empire. Dimitri personally intercepts Edelgard and her elite soldiers at the Tailtean Plains, but he is defeated in battle. If Dedue transformed into a beast during the battle, Dimitri is personally executed by Edelgard, blaming her for the Tragedy of Duscur to his last breath. However, if Dedue was defeated before transforming, Dimitri dies a peaceful death in Dedue's arms.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses


Dimitri is one of the game's lord characters, and his defeat under the player's control is grounds for an immediate game over. He is the primary protagonist of the Azure Moon route and a temporary playable character and recurring boss on all other routes.

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Dimitri is the leader of the Blue Lions and is one of the best units in the game. First of all, Dimitri starts with good bases and the strongest early game combat art, Tempest Lance, already giving him a strong lead. Dimitri will maintain this lead and likely soar ahead of most other units due to his amazing growths and his personal skill boosting his Exp growth by 20%. In addition to having the highest strength growth in the game, he also has outstanding growths in HP, speed, defense, and charm, all of which are useful and desirable stats. Due to these combined factors, you will likely find that Dimitri takes out most enemies in one round and easily survives the following enemy phase. Even in Maddening, Dimitri proves more resilient than most other units. Even when he fails to one-round the enemy, he will deal massive damage to enemies enabling others to finish the job. Come Part II, Dimitri’s personal skill also grants him an additional 20 avo if his HP is at max. If combined with with Alert Stance and if Dimitri is granted Retribution, he can clear an impressive amount of enemies on enemy phase all while having nearly perfect avoid. If you have completed the Cindered Shadows expansion, the Chalice of Beginnings makes a beautiful fit for Dimitri, removing his reliance on Retribution to wipe out entire armies by himself. Adding to his impressive enemy phase is the unique combination of Battalion Wrath and Battalion Vantage; while the traditional Wrath and Vantage abilities are tied to specific classes, require the user to be put in danger, and must be set up each map, Dimitri gains access to their battalion forms through his Authority skill level—a skill in which he has a strength and a fairly high base—he can use a low-endurance battalion to avoid threatening himself, and since battalion endurance carries over between maps, meaning it doesn't need to be set up each map. While this does grant a significant boon to Dimitri's enemy phase, it does require reaching an A-rank in Authority, which could conflict with reaching higher levels in his non-lance skills for master classes, and it cannot be used easily in Chapter 13, as he comes with a fully healed 120-endurance battalion. When aiming to use this build, it is ideal to bring him to an A-rank in Authority by the beginning of Chapter 8, as that is when the Kingdom Archers are unlocked at the Battalion Guild and you can start giving him Retribution. In addition to his generally outstanding combat, Dimitri possesses the elusive and useful Windsweep, unlocked with an A-rank in Swords, allowing him to safely weaken enemies for others or break barriers on monsters towards the endgame. By realizing his Budding Talent in Riding, Dimitri gains the Seal Movement ability and a strength in Riding. Even though the utility of Seal Movement pales in comparison to using a gambit to rattle an opponent, which freezes them in place, or killing the enemy unit which prevents them from ever moving again, it is still worth it to realize his budding talent to grant him a strength in Riding.

Dimitri possesses a minor crest of Blaiddyd, which grants him a 10% chance to double damage output when using a combat art at the cost of doubling consumed weapon uses. The Crest of Blaiddyd is strong but will usually prove to be massive overkill in lower difficulties against all enemies, boss monsters excluded. Moreover, its proc rate is quite low making it unreliable for killing enemies in Maddening; not to mention that its cost of doubled weapon uses can leave Dimitri in a bad situation if the combat art ends up breaking the used weapon or lowers its uses to the point that it breaks midway through the enemy phase. Since Dimitri’s crest has a high chance to disastrously backfire, using combat arts with Dimitri is somewhat of a calculated risk. Fortunately, the crest of Blaiddyd also grants Dimitri an incredibly powerful combat art in Areadbhar’s exclusive art, Atrocity. In addition to granting fifteen might and twenty hit, Atrocity also deals x2 bonus damage to all enemy units. On activation, the art has a might of 68 before even factoring Dimitri’s strength or battalion bonuses, meaning that Atrocity can essentially kill any enemy unit in one hit save for boss monsters with massive health bars and is yet another incredibly powerful tool in Dimitri’s kit.

Since Dimitri excels so much on the frontlines, Dimitri is best off selecting a physically-oriented class. One of Dimitri's best promotion pathways is Soldier, to Cavalier, to Paladin after which you can choose between Dimitri’s unique class of High Lord for a higher class modifier in speed or staying in the Paladin class for mount movement and Canto. If you are worried about the negative speed modifier for Paladins, a guard adjutant, a Speedwing/Speed Carrot, or dismounting which makes the speed modifier +1, should prove sufficient in resolving this weakness. If you wish to maximize Dimitri's speed or get to his battalion-related skills and Windsweep earlier the promotion pathway of Myrmidon, to Lord, to Swordmaster will prove useful; however this does come at the cost of lower movement, which can be mitigated by equipping the March Ring or the Stride gambit, and a lack of Canto. Dimitri’s incredible stats also pair well with the Wyvern Lord's excellent mobility and class modifiers; however, this is his best class mostly in theory as, due to story-related reasons, Dimitri will be unavailable for tutoring and will only develop his weapon proficiencies via combat from Chapter 13 to Chapter 17. This means he misses out on four out of the eight months of time available for tutoring in Part II; thus, Dimitri’s class options are somewhat more restricted than other characters unless you resort to grinding via auxiliary battles. For this reason, master classes are somewhat difficult for Dimitri to obtain, the Wyvern Lord especially considering its demands of an A rank in Axes and Flying, the former of which he has a weakness in and the latter of which cannot grow in combat without first obtaining a Wyvern Rider certification. As for other master classes, they generally provide little benefit over Paladin and High Lord, hence why they are not recommended. If you do choose a promotion different from Paladin, it is vital to start on that path early and stick with it. For instance, if you want to make Dimitri a Bow Knight start training his bow proficiency in Part I. As is the case for all physically-oriented units, a side promotion into Brigand to attain Death Blow is attractive for essentially any promotion pathway, although Dimitri may not make as good use of it due to his general focus on enemy phase combat. Dimitri may have a weakness in axes but a C rank should be attainable if done in Part I.

Fire Emblem Heroes


There are three different variations of Dimitri available to Heroes, all based on his storyline appearance in Three Houses.

Personality and character

This page has been marked as a stub. Please help improve the page by adding information.

On the surface, Dimitri is a chivalrous young man who is loyal to his friends and kind to his subjects. Underneath, though, he holds great bitterness over the Tragedy of Duscur four years prior his attendance to the Officers Academy, which led to the deaths of his parents and many of his soldiers. The trauma over that incident has left Dimitri with a burning desire for vengeance and a deeply hidden capacity for extreme hatred, violence, and self-loathing that he actively tries to keep suppressed. The revelation of his beloved and trusted stepsister Edelgard's actions as the Flame Emperor and her subsequent betrayal and declaration of war against the Church of Seiros start to tear away at his kind heart, and the presumed deaths of Byleth and Dedue and the five years he spends as a vagrant on all routes other than Crimson Flower reduce him to an antisocial, vengeful madman bent on killing Edelgard as painfully as possible without any regard for his own safety or responsibilities as king. On the Azure Moon route, the return of Byleth and Dedue and the death of Rodrigue snap him out of his hatred and cause him to decide to let go of his past and atone for his sins, returning him to the chivalrous man he was in his school days. He makes several attempts to reconcile with Edelgard and comes to hold the belief that his duty as a king is to protect the weak from being trampled on by the strong, a duty he holds to after uniting the continent under his reign. On the Silver Snow route, while the exact nature of his final appearance is unclear, he comes off as lamentful over the deaths of his friends and retainers under his command. On the Verdant Wind route, his psychosis is at its worst; he attacks Alliance forces merely for being targets of opportunity, and his obsession with killing Edelgard results in his own death when he recklessly pursues her. On the Crimson Flower route, while he still hates Edelgard, her less unscrupulous actions during the war allow him to retain his sanity. He remains loyal to the Church, and is willing to put his life on the line for Archbishop Rhea.


Main article: Dimitri/Supports

Dimitri cannot grow his supports from Chapters 13 through 17 due to being consumed by his hatred of Edelgard.


Dimitri, Savior King (single ending)
After his coronation, Dimitri spent his life reforming and ruling justly over Fódlan. He focused particularly on improving living situations for orphans and improving foreign relations. He was known for listening intently to the voices of all, and for instituting a new form of government in which the people were free to be active participants. He lived for his people and alongside them, and was thusly dubbed the Savior King.

Byleth, Guardian of Order & Dimitri, Savior King
Paired with the end of the war, the joyous marriage of Byleth, the newly-appointed archbishop, and Dimitri, the newly-crowned king of Faerghus, gave the people of Fódlan much to celebrate. The two were devoted to improving life for the people and to seeking greater wisdom in order to reform the government and the church from the inside out. As leaders of church and state respectively, at times they engaged in heated debate. Even still, when enjoying a long horse ride or a quiet evening, they were not as the world saw them, but rather two adoring spouses, desperately in love. They remained as such for the rest of their days.

Dimitri, Savior King & Dedue, Taciturn Devotee
After his coronation, Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus, and his loyal vassal, Dedue, remained ever at his side. Among Dimitri's achievements was the reconciliation with Duscur: an extraordinary effort that required extensive negotiations to get past a history of betrayal and oppression. It was a trying task, but Dimitri never once considered giving up. While they behaved as lord and vassal in public, it is said that Dimitri and Dedue were more like family in private. When Dimitri finally fell to illness, Dedue tended to his liege's deathbed, and then took up a post at his grave for the rest of his days. When the time came, they were buried beside each other.

Dimitri, Savior King & Felix, The Shield's Successor
After his coronation, Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and spent his life ruling justly over Fódlan. At his side every step of the way was his right-hand adviser, Duke Felix Fraldarius. Their lifelong bond grew so strong over time that, when Dimitri finally passed, it is said that Felix's grief was more potent even than the queen's. The stories of their lives were passed down to future generations as chivalric tales that rivaled those of Loog, the King of Lions, and his sworn friend, Kyphon.

Dimitri, Savior King & Mercedes, Benevolent Soul
After his coronation, Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and took his friend, Mercedes, as his queen. Most were shocked by his choice, as she did not come from a distinguished noble line. Still, when the people saw her devotion to healing the damage caused by the war, they decided she was the ideal match for the one they called the Savior King. It is said that the couple led busy but happy lives, and that they never failed to express their appreciation for one another, no matter the hardship.

Dimitri, Savior King & Annette, Bloomed Overachiever
After his coronation, Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and spent his life ruling justly over Fódlan. At his side every step of the way was his queen, Annette, whose wisdom provided not only reliable counsel, but a whole assortment of revolutionary policies. The royal couple's sincere approach to governance earned them widespread acclaim, securing their line as a dynasty that lasted for generations to come. Their married life was said to be full of love and cheer.

Dimitri, Savior King & Ingrid, Stalwart Knight
After his coronation, Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and spent his life ruling justly over Fódlan. At his side every step of the way was Ingrid, who left House Galatea to serve House Blaiddyd as a knight. As they worked together to restore the Kingdom, the pair fell in love and were eventually married. But while Ingrid was happy to play the role of queen, and to support her husband in public and in private, she insisted on taking up a weapon and serving on the front lines in battle.

Dimitri, Savior King & Marianne, Survivor of the Curse
Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and spent his life ruling justly over Fódlan. Several years after his coronation, he took Marianne, whom he loved dearly, as his queen. Many of Dimitri's greatest achievements can be traced to wisdom provided by Marianne, who had received tutelage from her adoptive father, Margrave Edmund. Many years later, when Dimitri fell to illness, he clutched his queen's hand until the very end. The queen's journal, uncovered after her passing, contained recounts of their time together. The last words, penned with trembling hand, are: "I would not trade our time together or the happiness we knew for anything."

Dimitri, Savior King & Flayn, Slumbering Princess
Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and spent his life ruling justly over Fódlan. Some time after his coronation, he took Flayn, who now enjoyed a position of prominence in the church, as his queen. Many speculated at first that the marriage was politically motivated, but it is said that over time the love they had for one another became clear to see. Their lives were full of warmth and tranquility. Many years later, when Dimitri passed, his journals revealed that he had kept a meticulous record of all the meals he and his wife had enjoyed together.

Dimitri, Savior King & Gilbert, Veteran Patriot
Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and spent his life ruling justly over Fódlan. At his side was the knight, Gustave, who had discarded the name of Gilbert and reaffirmed his oath of fealty to the royal family. After many more years of service, in which the trust between them grew and never wavered, Gustave finally wished to retire. Though he bristled slightly at Dimitri's request to look after and tutor the young prince, it is said that Gustave took on that duty with due patience and solemnity for the remainder of his life.

Dimitri, Savior King & Catherine, Free Knight
Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and spent his life ruling justly over Fódlan. Two years after his coronation, he announced his marriage to Catherine. The people speculated wildly about how this union came to be. Some said that Dimitri spent two full years wooing her, while others suggested that the matter was resolved by a duel. In any case, the couple worked tirelessly to reform the Kingdom, but despite their busy days, it is said that they always found time for sparring, and that the clash of steel could be heard throughout the castle at all hours.

Dimitri, Savior King & Hapi, Freed Spirit
After his coronation, Dimitri assumed the throne of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus. He focused first and foremost on the restoration of the Kingdom but at the same time worked to expose the schemes of Cornelia and of those who conspired to bring about the Tragedy of Duscur. Always by his side was Hapi, who relentlessly pursued those who slither in the dark and, with Dimitri's help, discovered a magic spell to rid herself of her condition. Once all had settled down, the pair was known to have tea together often in the capital. It is said that Dimitri's tendency to discuss politics during tea time frequently moved Hapi to smirk, shake her head, and sigh.

Dimitri: Unfortunately for you, I will not oblige. You will regret all that you have done.

— Dimitri fighting Kostas in Chapter 2.
Lonato: I apologize, Your Highness. It is regrettable that we should cross swords like this.
Dimitri: Lonato, I sympathize with your position. I really do. I have no wish to kill you, but I am afraid you have left me no choice. Please...forgive me.
Lonato: Your Highness... I cannot stop here. For my child, and for the people of Fódlan. If you will not stand aside, then I have no choice but to cut you down.

— Dimitri fighting Lonato in Chapter 3.
How far can I push myself with you as my foe... This will be a great chance to test our mettle. Do not underestimate me, Professor, or you will fail.
— Dimitri as an enemy fighting Byleth in Chapter 7.
Dimitri: So, it is time to cross blades... I never imagined such a day would come to pass.
Edelgard: If the Empire and the Kingdom go to war, we'll be able to fight as much as we please.
Dimitri: I am sorry, but that is not something to joke about. The thought of fighting you is troubling at best.
Edelgard: In that case, I wonder when you'll be able to stomach facing me in battle... Do you need a few moments?

— Dimitri fighting Edelgard in Chapter 7.
Claude: Hey, Your Royalness! If you promise to let me have the prize, I'll let you take the honor of victory. Do we have a deal?
Dimitri: Enough of your foolishness! I— Wait a moment. You are trying to anger me, is that it?
Claude: Saw right through me, did you? Well, if there's no deal, I'll just have to win this thing fair and square!
Dimitri: I will happily face you, here and now. Do not hold back, Claude!

— Dimitri, fighting Claude in Chapter 7.
Dimitri: Do not try to say you have forgotten... Do you know just how many people died in Duscur?
Flame Emperor: Why bother with this? Stay silent and fight.
Dimitri: So you want to turn your eyes away from the lives you have trampled? Dastard! You are a monster. The lowliest beast I have ever known.

— Dimitri fighting the Flame Emperor in Chapter 11.
Dimitri: You're late. I... We are all tired of waiting. Now, let's separate that sick head from your neck, shall we?
Edelgard: Heh. You never were one for patience.

— Dimitri fighting Edelgard in Chapter 12.
You will not kill one more soul. You will not steal one more thing. I will not allow it. Here and now, I stand against you!
— Dimitri as an enemy in Crimson Flower Chapter 17.
Why did you choose Edelgard, Professor? Why did you choose to walk this savage, bloody path? I cannot shake this feeling of regret... Regret that I must kill you now.
— Dimitri as an enemy fighting Byleth in Crimson Flower Chapter 17
Dimitri: Must you continue to conquer? Continue to kill?
Edelgard: Must you continue to reconquer? Continue to kill in retaliation? I will not stop. There is nothing I would not sacrifice to cut a path to Fódlan's new dawn!
Dimitri: Enough of this madness! This future of yours is built on a foundation of corpses and tears!

— Dimitri as an enemy fighting Edelgard in Crimson Flower Chapter 17
Dimitri: You killed Rodrigue... your own father, Felix.

— Dimitri as an enemy fighting Felix in Crimson Flower Chapter 17

— Dimitri as an enemy fighting former members of the Blue Lions in Crimson Flower Chapter 17.
Randolph: A one-eyed demon... So, it's you. You're the one who's been going around killing the Imperial troops!
Dimitri: What is it to you?
Randolph: You bastard! Life is worthless to you, isn't it?!
Dimitri: Ha! You took the words from my mouth, general!

— Dimitri, fighting Randolph in Azure Moon Chapter 14.
Dimitri: The man praised as a lion is degraded to a mere traitor's underling.
Gwendal: A traitor's underling? That's upsetting, Your Highness. I am and always have been a knight of House Rowe.
Dimitri: How dare you? You are nothing but a lowly beast scavenging for scraps. You have forgotten the dignity of knighthood.
Gwendal: I may be lowly, but this beast is devoted to his master.
Dimitri: Ha! Then I had better kill the pet and deliver its head to that master...

— Dimitri, fighting Gwendal in Azure Moon Chapter 15.
You're not worth it. Get out of my sight.
— Dimitri, as a boss in Verdant Wind Chapter 17.
Are you trying to stop me too? Then I'll just have to kill you!
— Dimitri, as an enemy fighting Byleth in Verdant Wind Chapter 17.
Dimitri: Stab your chest, break your neck, crush your head... I will allow you to choose your own death.
Edelgard: I'm not interested in methods of dying. All that matters is when death takes place, not how. And I have no intention of dying today.
Dimitri: I'm sure all of the people you've slaughtered so far thought the same!

— Dimitri, fighting Edelgard in Azure Moon/Verdant Wind Chapter 17
Claude: Calm down, Dimitri! What does it achieve, us killing each other here?
Dimitri: Move, Claude. I have no time to exchange words with you.
Claude: It doesn't matter what I'm saying, does it? You aren't even listening. But I'm not gonna budge.

— Dimitri, fighting Claude in Azure Moon/Verdant Wind Chapter 17.
Cornelia: My, it's been a long time hasn't it, Your Highness? You've grown awfully strong.
Dimitri: How shameless. I bet it was you who killed my uncle and set me up. Am I right?
Cornelia: Hah! Too true! I'd already forgotten about all that loveliness.
Dimitri: I'll kill you, you monster! You will pay for all that you have done!

— Dimitri, fighting Cornelia in Azure Moon Chapter 18.
Felix: So, the old man's dead...
Dimitri: Yes.
Felix: I'll cut you down. Prepare yourself, you damn boar!
Dimitri: Very well. Come at me, Felix!

— Unused dialogue between Dimitri and an enemy Felix in Azure Moon Chapter 18.
Lord Arundel: You would raise a weapon against your uncle? You've grown into a savage of a man, just like your father.
Dimitri: You are rather calm for one in your position. Or did you forget that this is a battlefield? Perhaps this is no time for words, Uncle. There will [sic] time for that after we have settled things here.

— Dimitri, fighting Lord Arundel in Azure Moon Chapter 19.
Death Knight: You dare stand between me and my pleasure?
Dimitri: Yes. I dare stand against you, Death Knight.
Death Knight: Death is all that remains...

— Dimitri, fighting the Death Knight in Azure Moon Chapter 20.
Dimitri: Hubert. I would tell you to get out of my way, but I highly doubt you would abide.
Hubert: Heh. Your silver tongue will do you no good here. This is not your path to tread.
Dimitri: That is not your decision to make, nor is it mine. All I can do is blaze ahead!

— Dimitri, fighting Hubert in Azure Moon Chapter 21.
To be changed beyond all recognition... That is what lies at the end of the ideals you served so diligently. I have no pity for one such as you. If that is the future you hoped for, then you deserve no compassion.
— Dimitri fighting Hegemon Edelgard in Azure Moon Chapter 22
Duscur General: Now, this is a windfall... Who knew we'd meet our sworn enemy here!
Dimitri: Sworn enemy? Well, I cannot disagree.
Duscur General: We will slay you and topple Faerghus! That way, for the first time in ages...Duscur can be reborn!
Dimitri: Hmph.

— Dimitri fighting the Duscur General in War for the Weak.
Manuela: You've grown into a fine, handsome man, Dimitri. Bit of a shame you've also become a violent beast. Men like you make the Silver Maiden cry.
Dimitri: Oh? I suppose it is a shame, Professor Manuela. Perhaps I should have appeared before you holding a bouquet of flowers, rather than the weapon that will end your life.

— Dimitri, fighting Manuela in The Silver Maiden.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Dimitri appears as two spirits, one as his Part I incarnation and the other as his Part II. Dimitri is an Advanced shield-type spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, using his Part I artwork from Fire Emblem: Three Houses. When equipped to a player character, he grants two support spirit slots.

Dimitri can be enhanced when he reaches level 99, becoming Dimitri (Fire Emblem) - Five Years Later. He is an Ace shield-type spirit, using his art from Part II of Three Houses. When equipped by a playable character, he grants two support spirit slots and increased power and charging speed for smash attacks.

  • As the boss in Crimson Flower Chapter 17, Dimitri's map sprite depicts him with an eyepatch despite the fact that he does not lose the use of his right eye on the Crimson Flower route.
    • Despite this, there are sprites in the game's code that depict him without an eyepatch, though these are left unused for unknown reasons.
  • As a Lord in Part I, the eyes on Dimitri's sprite will change color to match those of his current affiliation—blue as a player unit, red as an enemy, yellow as a third army enemy. This quirk is not present for Edelgard or Claude, or even for Dimitri's Part II sprites.
  • Dimitri has ageusia; he lost his ability to taste food after the Tragedy of Duscur.[3]
  • Oddly, when playing a New Game + save file, if Dimitri is set to wear his War (Part II) outfit during chapters before the timeskip, his eyepatch will be omitted, making his physical appearance similar to how he appeared on the Crimson Flower route. Similarly, wearing his Academy (Part I) outfit during chapters after the timeskip will also remove his eyepatch.
  • On the Blue Lions route, despite Dimitri's drastic change in behavior and demeanor upon discovering the Flame Emperor's true identity in chapter 11, he can still be interacted with normally while exploring the monastery during chapter 12, with none of his voice lines during activities, instructions, or battles being altered to reflect his mental state.
    • However, in Part II, Dimitri's state of mind will negatively affect the player's interaction with him. Due to his single-minded fixation on killing Edelgard, he cannot be invited to any monastery activities, build support with any other units, be given gifts or lost items, nor can he be instructed in improving skill levels outside of combat. This will remain in effect until chapter 18, in which Dimitri will calm down and can be interacted with normally for the rest of the playthrough.
    • From chapters 13 to 17, Dimitri's character portrait and model will possess bags under his eyes, reflecting the mental stress he underwent during the five year timeskip; his voice lines in battle are also more aggressive to reflect this as well. From chapter 18 onward, the bags under his eyes will disappear, and aggressiveness of his voice lines in battle become less pronounced, representing his mental well-being improving.
