From Fire Emblem Wiki, your source on Fire Emblem information. By fans, for fans.

It has been proposed that this page be split into Prescience (Awakening) and Prescience (Heroes). Please discuss this change on the talk page.


Reason: Different names in Japanese (and every other language) and significantly different effects.

Prescience (Japanese: 先の先 Early Initiative in Awakening, 未来を知る力 Power to know the future in Heroes) is one of several skills in the Fire Emblem series, first appearing in Awakening where it is associated with experienced archers.

Trivia

  • This skill shares the same Japanese name as the player phase attack theme from Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem, which the skill's effect of providing a bonus on the player phase also seems to reference. The skill Patience, which serves as a thematic parallel or opposite to Prescience, also shares its name with the enemy phase attack theme of New Mystery of the Emblem.
