The red tome (Japanese: 赤の魔道 Red magic) is a type of weapon skill appearing in Fire Emblem Heroes; it is one of four subsets of the game's representation of the tome weapon type. Red tomes have weapon triangle advantage over green tomes and other green weapons, but have weapon triangle disadvantage against blue tomes and other blue weapons.
