Scroll

First game

Fire Emblem Fates

Snake Spirit (Japanese: 蛇神・巳 Snake God - Mi) is a scroll introduced in Fire Emblem Fates, and is the sixth of the scroll hierarchy of Hoshido. It is a brave weapon and the only piece of Hoshido weaponry to be one, and it lets its user strike twice as many times as they otherwise would when they initiate a battle. In addition to the brave effect, it gives its user slight boosts in speed and resistance, but it takes its toll on its wielder by causing a significant magic drop upon use.
