Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem

Fire Breath (Japanese: 火のブレス Fire Breath) is a breath-type attack introduced in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem. In Mystery of the Emblem, Fire Breath is used by Fire Dragons, Wyverns, and Mage Dragons, both on the enemy side and while a Manakete is transformed into one of those forms with a Firestone, Wyvernstone, or Magestone. New Mystery of the Emblem has Fire Breath wielded, at least as a distinct item, exclusively by enemy Fire Dragons and Wyverns; it is, however, a variant of the attack usable by Manaketes in the form of a Firestone's or Wyvernstone's attack. Fire Breath dealt bonus damage to Ice Dragons in Mystery of the Emblem, a trait that was not carried over to the remake.

There are two variants of Fire Breath used in New Mystery of the Emblem. The only difference between the two is the range; one variant is melee-only in the same fashion as the Firestone and Wyvernstone, whereas the other has ranged capabilities in line with its original Mystery of the Emblem incarnation.

Fire Breath later reappeared in Heroes and Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, in the latter classified as a monster weapon and possessing an effect that allows it to nullify defenses.
