Guy (Japanese: ギィ Guy) is a myrmidon from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. He is from the Kutolah tribe of Sacae, but travels the continent honing his skills with the sword.

Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade


This section has been marked as a stub. Please help improve the page by adding information.

Guy is hired by the Black Fang forces attempting to stop Eliwood and Hector from reaching the marquess of Santaruz. He reminisces about how a man named Matthew saved his life by giving him food when he was near starvation. When the battle begins, he runs into Matthew, who calls in Guy's life debt to him, and Guy is forced to join Eliwood's side. He stays with him for the rest of his quest.

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Guy is your first myrmidon on Eliwood's/Hector's path and fits the trope like a glove. He has great crit and avoid, at the cost of low damage and durability. It doesn't help him that he will be locked to swords for the entirety of the game, meaning aside from the Light Brand and Runesword (both extremely limited, and do him no favors anyway because of how they work at 2 range) he'll be unable to counterattack from the onslaught of javelins and hand axes the enemies of The Blazing Blade love. He starts with a Killing Edge, which complements his high base skill and mediocre base strength.

In a lot of ways, he is comparable to Lyn for the same reasons stated. However, unlike Lyn, Guy isn't subject to a late promotion, due to him being able to use the Hero Crest from Chapter 16E/17H once he reaches level 10. Upon promotion, Guy's problems aren't fixed, due to the lacking promotion gains Swordmasters receive in The Blazing Blade, but the added Str, Mov and Con aren't unwelcome. Also, on Hard mode, Guy gets 2 more to Str/Skl/Spd and 1 more to defense and resistance, which, while not fixing his flaws, helps greatly (although this is slightly negated due to the stronger enemies in hard mode).

Guy, Mounted Swordsman
Guy continued in his quest to be the finest swordsman of all Sacae. His form was so perfected that all called him the Saint of Swords.

Guy and Priscilla
They fell in love amidst conflict, but Priscilla was a noble, and Guy was but a mercenary nomad. Guy rode away before her tears could stain the earth, though her smile was the brightest thing he ever saw.


Death quote

I will be... the best... swordsman in all of Sacae...
— Guy, in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade.

Battle quotes

Vs. Uhai

Uhai: Oh... So you're from Sacae, too, are you?
Guy: I am Guy of the Kutolah!
Uhai: Kutolah... the Ash Wolf, Dayan's tribe! They're said to be the strongest on the plains. But you're still a child. Do you fight like one?
Guy: No!
Uhai: Then show me. Come!

— Guy and Uhai

  • In the prototype build of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade Guy explicitly confirms to Priscilla that he is 15 years old,[2] the released version of Fire Emblem does not confirm his age explicitly, though dialogue with Rath implies his age may be the same as his statement in the prototype.[3][4]
