Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem

Iote's Shield (Japanese: アイオテの盾 Iote's Shield) is an accessory item appearing in the Fire Emblem series. The shield is a Macedonian treasure that originally belonged to Iote, the founder of Macedon, who used it in his uprising against Dolhr. In Mystery of the Emblem it negates all bonus damage to whomever holds it, but it was revised in the DS installments to specifically provide its effects only toward flying classes, along the lines of Elibe's Delphi Shield and Magvel's Fili Shield.

From Awakening onward, it is a skill instead. It performs the same function by negating a flying unit's weakness to bows and wind magic. In Awakening, it is exclusively available through downloadable content.

In Heroes, it is available to Michalis as a A-type passive skill which can be passed to other flying units via the skill inheritance system, and is also available as a Sacred Seal. In Warriors, it is Minerva's main skill crest, which once again can be used by non-flying units.
