The Iron Blade (Japanese: 鉄の大剣 Iron Blade) is an uncommon sword which was introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. It is the first and weakest member of the blade family of weapons, a series of large, heavy swords which trade the reliability of ordinary swords for sheer power. Compared to its ordinary sword counterpart, the Iron Sword, the Iron Blade typically has improved might in exchange for significantly higher weight, worse accuracy and lower durability. As a result, while the Iron Blade very powerful by the standards of iron weapons, units lacking in their speed or constitution stats are greatly slowed down by it and have their avoid and chance of being able to double-attack crippled by its weight.
