Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem

The Meisterschwert (Japanese: マスターソード Master Sword) is a rare sword found in the Fire Emblem series. In its original appearance in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, and again in New Mystery of the Emblem, the remake of its second book, it is basically a stronger variation of the Killing Edge. In its only other appearance in Thracia 776, it instead acts as a brave weapon, allowing the unit to double the number of attacks per turn; however, it lacks the extended durability of the similar Brave Sword, which also has a better weight, higher might and even a lower weapon level, although it does have a higher critical rate than the Brave Sword. Its appearance in Heroes is based on its Thracia 776 version; here, it is the personal weapon of the "Thunder's Sword" variant of Reinhardt.

Meisterschwert

German for "master sword". Potentially used to connect with the German names used for the knight brigades of Grannvale. Alternatively, it may be to differentiate it from the sword from the Zelda series.
