Unit type(s)





Seal Resistance, Shove

The Oni Savage (Japanese: 鬼人 Kijin) is a basic class debuting in Fire Emblem Fates. Oni Savages can wield clubs, the Hoshidan variant of the more common axe weapon type. They have impressive strength and defense, but are let down by below-average skill, which exacerbates the already low accuracy of their weapons.

Oni Savages can promote to either Oni Chieftains or Blacksmiths.
