Thunder

First game

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776

Dire Thunder (Japanese: ダイムサンダ Dime Thunder) is an unusual type of thunder magic appearing first in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, and returning as a blue tome-type offensive skill in Heroes. It is the personal weapon of the Friege army's Mage Knight sibling duo, Olwen and Reinhardt.

Dire Thunder is one of few tomes in the series to act as a brave weapon, allowing consecutive strikes; it was the only such tome prior to Awakening.
