Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

You there! Renais dogs! Where do you think you're going?
— O'Neill

O'Neill (Japanese: オニール O'Neill) is the boss appearing in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He is a soldier of Grado sent to pursue Eirika as she escapes from Renais.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones


O'Neill is the boss of the prologue, and thus the first boss encountered in the entire game.

He, along with his two underlings, chases Eirika and Seth as they flee from Renais Castle. He catches them in a mountain pass leading to Frelia, and battle ensues. He ends up killed by Eirika and her knight.

Personality and character

During battle he openly insults both Eirika and Seth, calling them "Renais dogs", and "high-and-mighty knights", and considers himself a "true warrior".


Battle quote

You will be the first to die!

Death quote

What? How?
— O'Neill


  • O'Neill has an unused palette within the game data. This seems to be his intended palette as the black color scheme matches the shirt he is depicted wearing in his portrait. It would seem the default enemy color scheme ends up overwhelming his intended color scheme.
