The Forrest (Japanese: フォーレスト Forrest) is an advanced infantry class exclusive to Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. One of the two promoted forms of the Sword Fighter, it is functionally identical to the Hero of most other games, the Myrmidon in Gaiden, and the Mercenary of Thracia 776. It is a counterpart to the Swordmaster, the other promotion for the Myrmidon, featuring on average lesser Skill and Speed than the Swordmaster and focusing primarily on power, with slightly better defensive bulk.

Genealogy of the Holy War
The class a unit changes into in Genealogy of the Holy War is determined by the unit and not the class; however, all units that change into the Forrest class have the following class change option:
|Base class||Promotion method||Advanced class|
|Choosing the option "Class change" in the home castle after reaching Level 20.|
|Promotion choice criteria: Preset depending on the individual character; Chulainn, Scáthach, Dalvin, and Creidne all promote to Forrest, while Ayra and Larcei promote to Swordmaster.|

Used in the Genealogy of the Holy War fan translation, in order to connect the class to the nearly-identical Hero class from almost all other games in the series.
Forrest; the exact etymology is unknown, but is speculated to come from the Danish forrest "foremost". The name is unlikely to be related to a forest in the sense of a tree-dense expanse of land.
