Allows unit to call Partner reinforcements.






Reinforce (Japanese: 援軍 Reinforcements) is a skill appearing exclusively in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, and is a personal skill exclusive to the Begnion general Tanith. Reinforce allows Tanith to call in three members of her Holy Guard as partner units to provide reinforcements for the player's army, summoning one Falcon Knight and two Pegasus Knights. Tanith is able to use this skill twice per chapter.

Other appearances

Fire Emblem Cipher

Reinforce is present as a skill on one card in Fire Emblem Cipher: B03-039N Deputy Commander of the Holy Guard, Tanith. It is a manual-activation skill which, in exchange for using up Tanith's turn, allows the player to deploy one flying unit with a cost of 2 or less onto the battlefield.


  • Interestingly, if the game was hacked to allow Tanith to be used in chapters prior to Chapter 18 in Path of Radiance, the Reinforce skill would be disabled.
