Castle: Throne Room



I'm so glad you made it home.
— Garon

King Garon (Japanese: 暗夜王ガロン Dark Night King Garon) is the twenty-seventh chapter of the Birthright campaign in Fire Emblem Fates. In this chapter, Corrin and his/her army begin their final confrontation with King Garon of Nohr to end his reign of terror.

Although the game can be saved during battle preparations, it is not possible to save the game, read supports, or return to My Castle during the next; both chapters must be completed consecutively.


Main article: King Garon/Script

After countless trials, numerous losses, the Nohrian generals dead and nothing left in their way, Corrin finally arrives at Garon's throne room to confront him. Garon then flaunts his power and taunts him/her, referring to his/her achievements as "something approaching competence". Corrin announces his/her aim to dethrone Garon, for starting a needless war that has claimed thousands of innocent lives and bringing up the deaths of Xander and Elise, which Garon is surprised by, though only because of Xander's strength as his "pawns". Corrin, shocked at Garon's lack of remorse, insults him by calling him "old man". Angered by this, Garon insults back by stating that Corrin and his own children were all pawns for the war.

Corrin becomes angered that Elise and Xander gave their lives to stop him/her from killing Garon, yet he feels no remorse at their deaths and declares Garon to be irredeemable and vows to kill him and end his reign. Corrin attacks Garon, only for the Yato to merely bounce off of him. Garon retaliates, knocking Corrin off his/her feet. Azura attempts to sing, but is immediately caught up by Garon, who demands that Corrin and the other surrender immediately. Ryoma offers to listen to Garon's demands, only to be knocked away by magic after Garon demands both his kingdom and his life. Garon taunts Corrin once more and asks if he/she will surrender to him, or fight and ensure the deaths of all his/her friends. Corrin begins questioning why the Yato had no effect on him and and states that he/she needs more power, Raijinto then reacts, and the Yato transforms into the Blazing Yato, unlocking the Seal of Flames. The Yato is finally able to damage Garon, and Corrin calls for Azura to begin her song. Garon is angered by this and orders his men to kill Corrin and the Hoshidians, but Corrin declares his reign is over, and the fight proper begins.

Upon defeating Garon, Corrin commands the remaining Nohrian army to stop fighting, and begins to announce a future peace treaty. However, Garon regains consciousness and transforms into a dragon, and mocks the idea of the treaty. Corrin is shocked by Garon's appearance and questions what he really is. Garon explains that this is his true form, granted by the blood of dragons within him. Garon attacks Corrin, destroying the Yato, which surprises both of them. Ryoma and Takumi attempt to counter back with their own legendary weapons, only to be knocked back by another attack. When he attempts to finish them off, Corrin defends them and takes one last attack from Garon to keep the two safe, seemingly killing him/her.


After enduring countless trials and losses, Corrin finally confronts King Garon. The final battle begins now!
