The Fire Mage (Japanese: 炎魔道士ファイアマージ Fire Mage) is a basic magical class which was introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, appearing only in it and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. The class is one of three element-specialized versions of the Mage class of other Fire Emblem series games, along with the Thunder Mage and Wind Mage, and as its name suggests it specializes in fire magic and is unable to wield any other magic type.

The Fire Mage plays near identically to standard Mages as a purely offensive magical class, differing only in being restricted to fire magic. Fire Mages have high magical power and speed, allowing them to somewhat reliably double-attack enemies, and in particular making them notably adept at killing slow, heavily-armored Knights. However, Fire Mages have low HP and defense, making them highly susceptible to being killed or severely damged in one shot by most physical units.

Unlike the Thunder and Wind Mages, there has never been a playable Fire Mage, so the class's class change options are unknown. In Radiant Dawn, it does have a clear hypothetical promoted form in the Fire Sage, which in turn promotes to the Arch Sage. It does not appear to have a defined promoted form at all in Genealogy.
