First game

Fire Emblem Gaiden

Mire (Japanese: スライム Slime) is a magic spell that was introduced in Fire Emblem Gaiden. It summons an explosion of cursed slime to damage its target.

In Gaiden, Mire is a black magic spell with moderate power and no special effect, although its remake, Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, gives it improved range with the ability to strike targets as far as three spaces away from the user. It is available only to enemy units in Gaiden and the base Shadows of Valentia game, although DLC allows it to be legitimately used by the player's army. In Awakening, Mire is a dark tome and the game's only long-range tome.

Mire returns in Three Houses, now known as Mire Β (Japanese: スライムΒ Slime Β). Here, it is once again a three-range dark spell, though with the added effect of reducing foes' defense afterwards.

Fire Emblem Cipher

Mire is present as a skill on one card in Fire Emblem Cipher: B01-086HN Smiling Sorcerer, Henry. It is a trigger skill which comes into play automatically whenever one of Henry's allies changes class. When this happens, each player must discard one card of their own choosing from their hand.
