Shirasagi: Reception Hall



You...have done well so far... But that was just practice. No more games—to the death!
— Ryoma

Ryoma (Japanese: 白夜王子リョウマ White Night Prince Ryouma) is the twenty-fifth chapter of the Conquest campaign in Fire Emblem Fates. In this chapter, Corrin enters Hoshido's castle and is forced to fight with their blood brother, Ryoma, once and for all.


Main article: Ryoma (chapter)/Script
The below plot corresponds to the use of a male Corrin. If you refresh this page, it is possible to get an alternate reading using a female variation instead.

Corrin rushes into Castle Shirasagi to find Ryoma before the rest of the army can kill him, but soon finds himself lost inside. Azura tells him of a secret space in front of the throne room, and suggests that Ryoma must be there. This worries Corrin, as the throne room is where they plan to meet the army. Corrin is soon interrupted by Iago, who informs him that Garon was fighting in-person during the battle prior. Corrin tells Iago that he and his army defeated Hinoka, and presents her lance as proof, though Iago is unconvinced. Before Iago can pressure further, Garon arrives, commanding him to stop with small matters, believing Hinoka to be no meaningful threat to them even if she were still alive. As they move forward, Iago begins plotting to ensure Corrin's suffering.

Corrin and the army reach the secret space, where they find Ryoma waiting for them. Ryoma reasons from their presence that Hoshido must have already fallen. Iago relishes in telling him the fates of his siblings, and throws Hinoka's lance to the ground, which Ryoma immediately recognizes. He then tells him that it was Corrin who killed her, which Corrin reluctantly reaffirms. Utterly enraged, Ryoma soon begins attacking Corrin, demanding a duel to the death with him. Xander objects, commanding the soldiers to defend Corrin, though Iago urges against this, claiming Corrin should need no help with his duel. Xander still objects, believing that the Yato may not stay true during such a fight between blood siblings. Unfortunately, Garon had already approved of the duel ahead of time. Saizo and Kagero soon arrive with reinforcements to keep the Nohrian army from interfering. In spite of the opposition, Xander and his siblings agree to fight against them to save their brother, and the battle proper begins.

In the end, be it by Corrin's hand or another's, Ryoma is defeated. Disgraced, he urges Corrin to kill him now to end the war, though he refuses, revealing the truth—that Hinoka had not been killed at all, that he saw her as too precious to him to kill. He elaborates that Hinoka is in hiding, and that, if he truly did kill her, he would have been more likely to take her head rather than just her lance. Ryoma is still doubtful, though Corrin still urges him to listen to him, saying that he doesn't want anyone to die, and that he would rather die than continue to lie like this. Corrin then leaves to meet with Garon, though Ryoma briefly catches a glimpse of the Yato lighting up—a possible sign that Corrin is being truthful to him.

Corrin reports of his success in the duel to Garon, and asks that he seize the throne right away. Garon, however, commands Corrin to finish Ryoma off in front of him. Corrin argues against this—that watching the enemy king seize the country is far worse a fate for Ryoma than death, though Garon commands him once more, citing Corrin's own words that "rebellions are like seeds; one must salt the earth before they sprout." Iago begins pestering him again, insinuating that he must have been lying to them the whole time, and that he is a traitor to Nohr. With Corrin forced into a dilemma, Ryoma intervenes. He tells his brother that he understands and trusts him, and proceeds to impale himself with Raijinto, killing himself so that he would not have to.

Corrin cries out in grief at Ryoma's death. Despite Corrin not killing him himself, Garon accepts Ryoma's death and proclaims the war as a victory for Nohr. Still grieving, Corrin walks out of the room and contemplates his facade as Nohr's bloodthirsty prince, and how he must keep it going until the very end. Despite this, he breaks down and begins to cry, regretting his decisions and broken promises to his Hoshidan family. Azura comes in to comfort him reminding him of his new promise to Ryoma—to keep Hoshido's future a safe one—a promise that Ryoma himself embraced in his dying words. Corrin thus resolves to fulfill this new promise, though Azura also comes to cry with him.


The group defeats Hinoka's forces and then seeks Ryoma to end the war decisively. Azura guides them to the throne room's antechamber, where Ryoma is waiting.

Before the chapter begins, it is worth noting that Corrin cannot start the chapter paired up in order to have a proper duel with Ryoma. It is impossible to use staves such as Rescue or Physic on Corrin while they are in the chamber.

There are two main ways to go about completing this chapter: the long way, by defeating one of Saizo or Kagero/both Saizo and Kagero so that the rest of your army can gang up on Ryoma, or by simply going along with Ryoma's duel as promised.

Should the player wish to go through with the duel, Corrin will likely not be able to double Ryoma unless they are in a fast class such as Master Ninja, so it is more imperative to try to simply avoid getting doubled. Corrin will need to reach 26/32 speed to achieve this. The chamber terrain will greatly reduce the damage both units do; on one hand, this will make it take quite some time to defeat Ryoma due to his large HP pool and the recovery effect, but on the other, it also gives Corrin a safety net of sorts to help keep them from being ORKOed. This allows Corrin some time in between attacks to chug a Concoction or Elixir to stay healthy. Killer weapons can be very helpful for dueling Ryoma, as they grant fantastic burst damage through their frequent, quadruple damage critical hits. If you chose Wyvern Rider as your secondary class or otherwise obtained it through supports, Swordbreaker will turn Ryoma into a complete pushover.

On Lunatic mode, going through the chapter the long way is much more difficult due to the introduction of Inevitable End, which will, over time, reduce even your strongest units to little more than moving targets. Ryoma on the other hand only gains Rend Heaven in the jump from Hard to Lunatic. As a result, the safest bet on Lunatic mode is to simply snag one of the two chests, preferably the Silence rod for the next few chapters, then put all work into defeating Ryoma with Corrin.
