Owain only. Skill +1. The apocryphal brand?
Missiletainn (Japanese: ミステルトィン Mysteltwinn) is a weapon which was introduced in Fire Emblem Awakening as a sword, and reappeared in Fire Emblem Fates as a tome. In both games it is a minor child character's personal weapon: in the former it is exclusive to Owain, and in the latter it is Ophelia's. In Owain's case, according to the villager from whom he obtained it, Missiletainn is a common sword he previously used for mundane tasks, but Owain mistakenly believes it to be the Demon Blade Mystletainn of Jugdral.

- While not the first weapon to have been considered different weapon types between games, Missiletainn is the only one to have been both a physical weapon and a magic tome.
