Turns targets to stone for a while.



First game

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776

Petrify (Japanese: ストーン Stone), known as Stone in The Sacred Stones, is a dark tome which inflicts the Petrify status effect upon enemies.

In its debut appearance in Thracia 776, the tome was wielded by Veld of the Loptr Church, was used to petrify Eyvel, and its effects could only be reversed with the Kia staff. In The Sacred Stones, Stone acts as a dark-magic monster weapon wielded by Gorgons; like most monster weapons, it is not depicted as physically being a magic tome.

  • According to The Sacred Stones prototype, Stone was one of the first monster weapons implemented, with the placeholder Stone Shard being before it in the item listing. Despite this, the version of Stone in the prototype is not fully functional and crashes the game when used.
    • Prototype Stone's stats are the same as the final revision of The Sacred Stones with one exception: it is an actual dark tome, using the Flux icon and has a requisite weapon level of D.
  • Petrify's Japanese description in Thracia 776 claims that it can only be used by Veld, but it is not a personal weapon and can be used by any dark magic user with an A level in dark magic.
  • Petrify has the same name as Stone in the Portuguese version of Heroes.
