First game

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

The Silver Blade (Japanese: 銀の大剣 Silver Blade) is a rare sword which was introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. It is the strongest of the blade family of weapons, a series of large, heavy swords which trade the reliability of ordinary swords for sheer power. Compared to its ordinary sword counterpart, the Silver Sword, the Silver Blade typically has improved might in exchange for significantly higher weight, worse accuracy and lower durability. As a result, while the Silver Blade is among the most powerful of all swords, units lacking in their speed or constitution stats are greatly weighed down by it and have their avoid and chance of being able to double-attack crippled by its weight.
