Icon of Flametongue from The Blazing Blade.

Dragon's breath, which burns all it touches. There is no protection.



First game

Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade

Flametongue (Japanese: 灼熱のブレス Scorching Breath) is a breath weapon which that debuted in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade as the weapon used by the game's final boss, the dragon. It nullifies its enemies' defense to inflict immense damage, and it can attack over an impressive range of 1-3 tiles. It shares the icon of the Firestone from the preceding game, Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade, and has very similar stats.

It also appears in Fire Emblem Heroes as one of the lesser breath skills learned by several dragon units.

Game Text
The Blazing Blade
Dragon's breath, which burns all
it touches. There is no protection.
The Blazing Blade
(Use screen, unused)
For Mamukoot only![sic]
If foe's Range = 2, calculates damage using
the lower of foe's Def or Res.


"For Mamukoot only!"
  • Flametongue's secondary description in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, seen when the item is viewed in the Item menu (which cannot be done in normal gameplay), is "For Mamukoot only!"; the same applies for all European-translated versions. "Mamukoot" is obviously an early translation of "Mamkute" (Manakete). The description was likely left over from the Dragonstone items in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade.
