First game

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

The Fenrir (Japanese: フェンリル Fenrir or ノスフェラート Nosferat) tome is a powerful dark spell in the Fire Emblem series. It originated in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War as a long-range tome, counterparted to Meteor, Bolting, and Blizzard. Upon appearing in Elibe, Fenrir instead became a standard-range spell of relatively high-rank, counterparted to Fimbulvetr and Aura. Its most recent appearance, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, has seen Fenrir return to its long-range origins, counterparted with the same spells as in Jugdral as well as with Purge.

Fenrir appeared in every game between Genealogy of the Holy War and The Sacred Stones, with an additional appearance in Radiant Dawn.
