|The Skadi as it appears in Heroes.|
Ddg+20. A magic bow from the Outrealm. Projects a simulacrum of the wielder.
Skadi (Japanese: スカディ Skadi) is an enemy-exclusive regalia yumi that debuted in Fire Emblem Fates. It is wielded by Takumi as the final boss of the Conquest campaign's Endgame. It is claimed in its description to originate from the Outrealms, and is attributed to be the source of the replica of Takumi which is paired up with the real Takumi throughout the chapter.
In the Conquest campaign, Skadi's most dangerous trait is its range, with its ability to hit from anywhere between 1-4 range ensuring that Takumi is almost never unable to counter-attack. Its might is average, but it is made up for with its range, respectable accuracy, and a boost to its wielder's dodge. However, it has the unfortunate distinction of being the first weapon in the Fire Emblem series which lowers its user's critical rate without outright preventing them from scoring critical hits. In the Heirs of Fate DLC series, Takumi wields a slightly weaker version of Skadi with an ordinary yumi range.

Fire Emblem Cipher
Skadi is present as a skill on one of Takumi's cards in Fire Emblem Cipher: B06-098HN Demon-Possessed Prince, Takumi. It is a manual-activation skill which, for a cost of discarding one ally unit in play, enables both Takumi and one other ally to ignore range limitations and attack any enemy unit anywhere on the field until the turn ends.
- Skadi is the only regalia of a Hoshidan weapon type to be not be named after something from Japanese mythology; its name comes from a goddess of Germanic mythology, which fits in with the vast majority of Nohrian regalia.
- Skadi's help text is mistranslated; in Japanese, it simply states it is from "another world", which is the Japanese term for the Outrealms. It uses the same term as the help text of Ganglari, which was translated not as "the Outrealm", but as "another realm".
- Skadi is heavily implied to be a corrupted form of the Fujin Yumi.
- Both bows share the same basic physical structure.
- In Fates, the weakened version of Skadi that appears in End: Lost in the Waves shares almost all of its stats with the Fujin Yumi, and only lacks the built-in Acrobat effect.
- In one castle quote in Heroes, Fallen Takumi refers to Skadi as his "precious bow" and claims that "it looks different".
- In Cipher, one of B15-072HN Evil Bow-Bearing Kin, Takumi's skills is called "Corrupted Divine Bow".
- The effect granted by Skadi in Heroes is based on the Conquest endgame, where Takumi can use an area-of-effect attack every two to three turns.
