In The Binding Blade, The Blazing Blade, The Sacred Stones, Shadow Dragon, and New Mystery of the Emblem, shops with a restricted amount of items are accessible through the preparations menu. Access to the regular shops during preparations phase is also present in Three Houses without any restrictions toward the purchasable items present. In The Sacred Stones and Awakening, shops can also be accessed on the world map.

It is one of the three categories of item sold at Aimee's shop in the base, where she sells rare items which the player cannot otherwise buy at that point in the game, similar to the secret shops of earlier games.

Online shop

Main article: Online shop

The online shop is a feature of the two Nintendo DS installments of the Fire Emblem series, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem, which made use of the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection online service. Functionally an armory and thus run by an Armorer, the online shop offered a wide assortment of items, including several not typically available in the in-game shops.


Main article: Merchant (shop)

The merchant is a type of bonus shop which appears Fire Emblem Awakening. Merchants take on two forms that work in similar ways, both appearing on various locations on the world map. Both provide the temporary ability to purchase rare items which otherwise are not available at that location's armory.

Main article: My Castle

In Fire Emblem Fates, shops are constructed and accessed in My Castle. There are four types of shops: the Hoshidan Dawn Armory, the Nohrian Dusk Armory, the Hoshidan Rod Shop, and the Nohrian Staff Store. Their availability depends on the campaign being played, with the Dawn Armory and Rod Shop only being available in the Birthright and Revelation campaigns while the Dusk Armory and Staff Shop are only being available in Conquest and Revelation. Players are also able to visit other players' My Castles and buy from their armories, including the one they do not have.
