The Rapier is a sword-type weapon in the Fire Emblem series, first appearing in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and appearing in every game set in the Archanean/Ylissean world and Elibe as well as Thracia 776 and The Sacred Stones; it does not appear in games set in Valentia or Tellius as well as Fates. This sword is quite unique, because it can be only wielded by certain characters of noble descent; it is the personal weapon of Marth, Roy, Eliwood and Eirika, as well as a class weapon for the Lord tree in Awakening.
Fairly light and accurate yet somewhat weak, this weapon deals extra damage against armored and mounted units.

Etymology and other languages
|Names, etymology and in other regions|
|Language||Name||Definition, etymology and notes|
|Spanish||Estoque||The Spanish term "estoque" can refer to diverse swords. The one featured in the Fire Emblem series is also known as espada ropera.|
- Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 is the only game where this sword is not a personal weapon; this could be due to the Light Brand being Leif's signature sword.
- Feena can wield the rapier in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem. According to Intelligent Systems' website, this is due to a secret of her heritage. This was changed in Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem: Heroes of Light and Shadow.
- Although the setting of the series seems to be inspired by the Middle Ages, the rapier was mainly used in the 16th and 17th centuries, during the Renaissance.
