If the character's stats are higher than their promoted class' base stats, they will not receive any bonus; however, if all stats are higher, then they will receive +1 to HP.

Ending

Gaiden

If Jesse survived

Together with Jesse's group he works hard towards patching up the new country.

If Jesse did not survive

In the former territory of Grieth, he built a new country. Afterwards, he became known as the Desert Mercenary.

Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

If Jesse survived
Intrigued by Jesse's idea, Kamui helped to found a kingdom of mercenaries, and lived there happily for a time. In the end, however, his wanderlust prevailed—one day he went for a stroll and simply vanished, never to be seen again.

If Jesse did not survive
Kamui established a new kingdom of, and for, mercenaries in what was once Grieth's territory. Relations with Valentia were favorable, with Kamui often aiding the king in times of need. In later life, his efforts earned him fame and respect as "the Steel Amidst the Sand."

Death quote

Gah. Jeez, I'm such an idiot.
— Kamui, in Gaiden

Battle quotes

Nil.

Other appearances

Kamui only appears in Gaiden and its remake.

Trivia

Artwork of Kamui, Valbar, and Leon from the April Fools' website.
  • Kamui shares his name with the Japanese default name of Fates's avatar.
  • On April Fools's Day in 2017, a fake Fire Emblem game called Fire Emblem: Battle of Revolution was given a page on Nintendo's website, featuring Fire Emblem Gaiden style graphics.
