Lance

First game

Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem

The Killer Lance (Japanese: キラーランス Killer Lance) is an uncommon lance-type weapon in the Fire Emblem series. As it is the case with the other "killer" weapons, this lance possess an enhanced critical rate, which compensates for its regular might. In the hands of units who already have a high critical rate, such as halberdiers and sentinels in Radiant Dawn, this weapon becomes extremely powerful.

The Killer Lance first appeared in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, and it has been available in all subsequent games but Genealogy of the Holy War and Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.
