The Sea Dragon (Japanese: かいりゅう Sea Dragon) is a class and subspecies of dragon that has never made an official appearance in the Fire Emblem series. While data for the Sea Dragon class is present in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, it is never used, and the Sea Dragon is not present in any form in any other installment. Many of its map animations are still in the game, though only one frame of its idle animation remains. Its moving map sprite resembles a sea serpent in appearance, while its battle sprite is the same as a Fire Dragon. It can move freely in seas, similarly to Pirates.

As it is a dragon class, it may have been intended to be usable as a manakete transformation; however, no transformation stone that would allow for such a transformation survives in the game's code, though a leftover name string in the game's debug menu, the "Sea Dragonstone" (Japanese: かいりゅうせき Sea Dragonstone),[1] suggests there was one in development at some point. No breath weapon, existing or otherwise, is known to be associated with the class; however, it can use any breath that is cheated into its inventory.

While not coded into the game, a Sea Dragon boss, known as Neptune (Japanese: ネプチューン Neptune), was planned to be featured in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light. It was supposed to attack with tornadoes rather than breath, and its attack animation was intended to have it conjure a spell with its hands.[2] The Sea Dragon's remaining map sprite data seems to depict it attacking with tornadoes while moving its hands.

Trivia

  • The Dagon, a dragon class appearing in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, may be a modern incarnation of, or at least inspired by, this unused concept. Dagons in Echoes: Shadows of Valentia are sea-dwelling dragons that make use of water-based breath attacks.
