First game

Fire Emblem Gaiden

Seraphim (Japanese: エンジェル Angel) is a spell that was introduced in Fire Emblem Gaiden. It appears in Gaiden and its remake, Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, where it is a black magic spell, and in Three Houses, where it is instead white magic; it is a mid-range spell whose angelic powers make it highly effective against monsters. In Heroes, Saintly Seraphim (Japanese: 天聖エンジェル Saintly Angel) is a green tome skill unique to Celica: Queen of Valentia; it boosts its user's speed, and boosts their damage based on their foe's resistance.

Fire Emblem Cipher

Seraphim is present as a skill on one card in Fire Emblem Cipher: B09-025SR Foolhardy Magical Girl, Mae. It is a manual-activation skill which can only be used once per turn. By discarding a spare Mae card from their hand, Mae's player may choose one non-lord enemy and immediately destroy them. If the destroyed enemy was a monster-affinity unit, Seraphim lets the player draw 1 card as an added bonus.
