Look at the size of them. I've got a bad feeling about this. My... My legs are trembling just standing here.

Light (Japanese: Light) is the final chapter of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. It is split into two parts; this page covers the second part of the chapter.


Main articles: Light (part 2)/Script (Eliwood) and Light (part 2)/Script (Hector)

Three Fire Dragons pass through the Dragon's Gate; Athos stands before them, and bears the brunt of their fire breath to slow them down. Bramimond then appears appears, and tells the lords to bring their legendary weapons to him; Bramimond uses the strength of the weapons to revive Ninian. Ninian subdues two of the dragons and sends them back through the gate, but exhausts herself and collapses. Bramimond takes Ninian away for her safety, leaving the group to defeat the last dragon.

Athos passes away.

Once the dragon has been defeated, it is sucked back through the Dragon's Gate. Athos congratulates everyone on successfully protecting Elibe, but collapses, having exhausted the last of his strength. As he dies, Athos gives a prophecy of the future: an "evil star" will rise in Bern and Elibe will once again be at war, but Lycia will bring hope once again. Having given his prophecy, Athos dies satisfied with the actions he took in life.

Eliwood and the group reunite with Ninian. Ninian states that she must return home; she is remorseful that her and Nils's wishes to see their homeland allowed Nergal's actions. Eliwood states that the blame for this is also shared by humans who drove the dragons away, and that he would like to make Elibe a paradise for both humans and dragons, like Arcadia. Ninian is pleased by Eliwood's words, but insists that she and Nils must return through the gate. If Ninian and Eliwood do not have an A support, Ninian and Nils return to their home and close the gate; if Eliwood and Ninian do have an A support, Nils gives Ninian his blessing to stay with Eliwood in Elibe, and Nils returns home by himself.

One year later, Eliwood and Hector are being coronated as marquesses of their respective territories—the lord of whichever tale was played will be visited by Mark if one is present, or by the other lord. Each lord expresses some anxieties over succeeding men like Elbert and Uther. If either lord has an A support with a potential partner—Lyn, Fiora, or Ninian for Eliwood; or Lyn, Florina, or Farina for Hector—they appear, and thank Mark or the other lord for helping on thier shared journey. Afterwards, the lords say their farewells.

Fifteen years after their coronations, Hector and Eliwood meet at Castle Ostia for the first time since Uther's funeral. The two reflect on their journey and introduce their children to each other—Eliwood's son Roy and Hector's daughter Lilina. The two children play elsewhere in the garden as Eliwood and Hector discuss more serious issues. Eliwood mentions that the King of Bern has died. Hector states that Desmond was assassinated in an attempt on Prince Zephiel's life; however, he notes that first spies reported Zephiel to have died before it was reported Desmond had a few days later. Eliwood and Hector reflect on Athos final warning of an "evil star" from Bern and a brutal war, and both promise to do everything they can to protect those who are dear to them.

At Bern Keep, Zephiel is confronted by an unknown man about his reason for awakening a "demon dragon"; Zephiel does not clarify his intentions, nor does the man clarify his identity.

This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

Your goal for this part of the chapter is to kill the Dragon while keeping the Lords alive. You do not need to defeat the enemies lined up along the sides of the stairs. In fact, they are completely irrelevant since they likely won't even reach your units unless you deliberately move into their range. The only one that is a threat is the Sage in the upper left corner with a Bolting tome and a Silence staff but he is only a threat if you leave units with poor resistance in his range or move magic-users into his staff range.

The Dragon has a massive amount of HP at 120 and 40 in defense and resistance. Additionally, its Flametongue ignores defenses, including those from supports and Ninis's Grace. On most difficulties, this is 37 fixed damage; most units can take one hit, but nobody can take two. However, on Hector Hard Mode, random stats allow the Dragon to deal up to 40 damage, exactly enough to one-shot Athos. Fortunately, the Dragon does not move, so you only need to make sure that everyone who stays near the Dragon has enough HP to tank a hit, and ideally 18 (most modes) or 19 (HHM) dodge to avoid potentially being one-shot by a crit. Any of the legendary weapons Athos gave at the beginning of the chapter do effective damage to the dragon so use those. The weapons from the Morphs in the first part of this chapter do not deal effective damage against the Dragon but can deal some damage if the user has enough strength, which can be boosted with Filla's Might. However, if you are doing a ranked run, stick to using the weapons Athos gave you, as the weapons from part 1 are highly valuable and using them will reduce the Funds ranking. The best candidates to chip the dragon's HP are Eliwood with Durandal, Hector with Armads, Athos with Forblaze or Aureola, or Canas with Luna. Lyn is not recommended as she has a realistic chance of not having enough HP to handle one round of combat with the Dragon and Sol Katti does not have enough might to deal significant damage to the dragon, making Lyn ineffective; however, if you have been training Lyn, she likely has a near 100% hit rate against the dragon, so she can land the final blow if possible. Attack the dragon with the units listed above then end the turn with a Fortify use or two. Hopefully, you will manage to defeat the boss within two turns.

  • In the 0206 prototype the player's units started at the bottom of the stairs instead of the top. This was revised as of the 0219 prototype, which puts the player's units at the top of the stairs similarly to the final build.
