Skill(s)

Emperor is a class appearing Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem, and Fire Emblem: Three Houses and as an unused class in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. In all of its appearances, it is exclusive to one character: Hardin of Mystery of the Emblem and its remake, Arvis in Genealogy of the Holy War (although the final enemy in the endgame's arena, Zeus, is also an emperor), and Edelgard in Three Houses. Hardin is only capable of wielding lances, Arvis is capable of using all weapon types except light and dark magic, and Edelgard is most proficient at wielding axes, although she can use different weapon types as well.

These characters appear as extremely strong end-game classes, as emperors of evil or rebellious kingdoms typically tend to be an antagonistic force throughout a large part of Fire Emblem plotlines. As such, emperors generally have very high stats in all areas except Luck.

The existence of unused data for the Emperor class in Thracia 776 may indicate that Arvis was planned to have been included in the game, which takes place in the middle of Genealogy of the Holy War.
