The divine dragons (Japanese: 神竜 divine dragon) are one of the dragon tribes of Archanea, Elibe, and Elyos. They are widely considered the most powerful of the dragon tribes, rivalled only by the antagonistic earth dragons, and are often found acting as the leaders of the dragonkin. Naga, the "king" of the divine dragons of Archanea, is revered as a god in Archanea/Ylisse, Valm and Jugdral.



Four thousand years before the foundation of the Kingdom of Archanea, the divine dragon clan were the rulers of the advanced dragon civilization which dominated the Archanean continent.[1] This changed one thousand years before Archanea's formation, as the dragons began to show signs of deterioration: the birth rates of dragons plummeted and madness spread across members of all dragon clans. In response, the divine dragons led the other dragons in taking humanoid forms to preserve their lives and sanity, sealing their dragon powers away into dragonstones and becoming Manaketes.[2] Led by their ruler, Naga, the divine dragons later participated in a war to protect mankind from the berserk earth dragons who refused to adopt human forms. At the war's conclusion, Naga sealed her daughter Tiki into a deep sleep to prevent her from degenerating as well, and entrusted guardianship of the world to fellow divine dragon Gotoh before she "died". Gotoh, Tiki and Xane would all later play important roles in assisting Anri and later Marth in opposing the antagonistic Shadow Dragon, Medeus.

In later generations, when Naga's identity as a dragon became better known, the term "Divine Dragon" shifted toward being used primarily as a title for Naga herself as opposed to its broader use as referring to all divine dragons. Tiki—now an adult—is also worshipped by the people of Valm as the Voice of the Divine Dragon, acting as an oracle who knows the will of her mother.


Divine dragons once lived in Elibe in the era preceding the Scouring. Late in the Scouring, as the dragons proved to be losing, other dragons—including Jahn—attempted to convince the divine dragons to assist them in creating a "demon dragon" in order to turn the tide of the war in their favour.[3] The divine dragons refused the proposal, on the grounds of it violating the laws of nature, and almost all of them disappeared before the other dragons could argue the point further.[4] One divine dragon, Idunn, failed to escape and was abducted and transformed into the Demon Dragon. At least 980 years later, another divine dragon still lived in Arcadia in the Nabata Desert: Fae, an infant divine dragon. At the conclusion of the Disturbance of Bern, Idunn was defeated by General Roy of Pherae and returned to Arcadia, where Fae and the elder set about restoring her lost heart.


Physical appearance

Divine dragons in Archanea are typically white, sometimes with accents of green, yellow, or grey, with scales that look like feathers with pure red eyes. They have an average build for dragons in Archanea apart from their large feathery wings.

By the time of Ylisse, divine dragons began to look similar to leafy seadragons. Their bodies are slimmer than in Archanea, and their legs and arms are thinner; they have many protrusions resembling leaves or seaweed, and the feathers of their wings resemble these protrusions.

Divine dragons in Elibe have a more plump build with smaller limbs than those in Archanea, and they resemble birds more than reptiles. Their feathers are more prominent and cover their entire bodies. They have pure blue eyes, unlike the divine dragons in Archanea.


Divine dragons are shown to have control over varying elements depending on the world and time period they come from. Early Archanean divine dragons are able to breathe ice or fog, while their Elibean and later Ylissean counterparts are instead shown breathing blue- or green-colored fire. Divine dragons also appear to have an affinity for light magic, which can be seen most clearly in the Naga tome, which channels the power of its namesake.

Despite their differences, Archanean and Elibean divine dragons are similar to the point where weapons that are effective against divine dragons in Elibe, such as the Binding Blade, are also effective against Archanean divine dragons.

Class data

The Divine Dragon exists as a distinct class only in Mystery of the Emblem, and as an unused class in The Binding Blade. Otherwise, it only exists as the in-battle transformed state of certain Manaketes (Tiki, Fae, Nagi) in Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light, Shadow Dragon and New Mystery of the Emblem, through the use of a Divinestone; however, in Mystery of the Emblem, the Divinestone is instead used from the items menu to transform Tiki into a Divine Dragon both on the field and in battle for five turns, giving her access to Ice BreathBook 1/Fog BreathBook 2. until the transformation reverts.

  1. "Dragon tribe's golden age; an advanced civilization under the rule of the Divine Dragon tribe is built on the whole continent." — Perfect ending timeline, Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem
  2. "If you really wanna know... Tens of thousands of years ago, the dragon tribe settled down on this continent, and created a civilization. They possessed intellect and abilities far exceedin' those of humans. But suddenly, outta nowhere, their day of destruction came. At first, they couldn't bear children. Then they began to lose their minds, goin' berserk one after the next. The elders warned that the end of dragons as a species was approachin'. There was no longer any way to prevent it. However, there was one way they could survive: to discard their identities as dragons and live on as humans. The dragons fell into a panic. Those who believed the elders sealed their forms within stones and became humans. But those who couldn't throw away their pride as a dragon; those who adamantly refused to become human... They eventually lost their minds and became naught but beasts..." — Xane, Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem
  3. "Jahn: The dragons you speak of are correctly referred to as War Dragons. As I said before, they are different from pure dragons such as I. Indeed, the War Dragons are created by the Demon Dragon. And the Demon Dragon was created out of the Divine Dragon, the most powerful of our kind.
    Roy: Created out of the Divine Dragon? Then the Demon Dragon is actually... The Divine Dragon agreed to become the Demon Dragon?
    Jahn: Agreed? No. We destroyed its soul so that it would follow our leader's every command.
    " — Jahn and Roy, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
  4. "Jahn: ...No matter how much we fought, you humans just seemed to multiply endlessly. Eventually, we began to lose because of the humans' sheer numbers. Therefore, we created the Demon Dragon that would create War Dragons.
    Roy: War Dragons... Dragons meant only for battle.
    Jahn: That is correct. However, the Divine Dragons did not agree with us. They said that that would be defying the laws of nature. As we were discussing how we could persuade the Divine Dragons to help us, they suddenly disappeared.
    " — Jahn and Roy, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
