The icon of red tomes in Heroes.
The red tome is a type of weapon skill appearing in Fire Emblem Heroes; it is one of three 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.

Red tomes based on tomes that appear in the main Fire Emblem series have thus far been primarily based on fire and dark elementals, but are not limited to them (one forest-elemental spell is in the red tome category).

List of red tomes

If a weapon does not have any Yes check.png marks next to it, it is a weapon thus far exclusive to Heroes and has yet to appear in the main Fire Emblem series.
Due to the nature of Heroes as a game that is constantly updated adding new elements with each update, new red tomes may be added to the game with any given update and thus may render this list incomplete at any given time.
