First game

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

The Return (Japanese: リターンの杖 Return Staff) is a staff introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. In its lone proper appearance in that game, it served to return an adjacent ally to the player's main castle.

The Return staff appeared in the game code of Thracia 776, but is unused in that game. Its purpose in Thracia 776 is to let an adjacent ally escape the map.
