Devastating wind magic.


Tome (Wind)

First game

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

Rexcalibur (Japanese: レクスカリバー Rexcalibur) is a powerful wind tome which made its first legitimate appearance in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, although it is also present in an unused state in the preceding game, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. In Radiant Dawn, it is a regalia weapon and the wind counterpart to the Rexflame and Rexbolt tomes, and is obtained by Ike's party during Part 4. In Awakening, it is downgraded to become an ordinary spell that acts instead as a wind counterpart to Thoron and Bolganone, a role previously filled by Tornado; this continues in Heroes.

In the Tellius games, Rexcalibur is depicted as a blizzard which summons an immense burst of ice around the spell's target. Awakening instead portrays it as a relatively ordinary tornado.

  • In its unused state in Path of Radiance, Rexcalibur is largely complete and completely functional. If one modifies their game by way of an Action Replay or similar device to gain access to it, it is in an almost complete and functional state and can be used by anyone with an S rank in wind magic; however, the map spell animation for it is incomplete.[1]

Etymology and other languages

Names, etymology and in other regions
Language Name Definition, etymology and notes
English Rexcalibur From the Latin rex, "king", used by the Tellius duology as a prefix for the strongest tome of a magic type, + the "calibur" part of Excalibur, sometimes used as a name component for wind spells throughout the Fire Emblem series.
Japanese レクスカリバー Romanized as Rexcalibur in its internal file name in Radiant Dawn. In Path of Radiance, its file name was "FIMBULVETR", a wind-based anima spell from earlier games.
Spanish Rexcalibur As above.
French Fimbulvetr From the Fimbulvetr (Old Norse: "great winter"), the three unyielding winters preceding Ragnarökr in Norse mythology. It was likely changed to this because of the spell's internal file name in Path of Radiance.
German Rexcalibur As above.
Italian Rexcalibur As above.
