|Icon of the Sonic Sword from Path of Radiance.|
A sorcerous blade that uses magic, not strength, to attack.
The Sonic Sword (Japanese: ソニックソード Sonic Sword) is a sword appearing exclusively in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. It is a magic sword that channels wind powers, and attacks using the Sonic Sword are fuelled by the unit's magic stat and target the foe's resistance, instead of strength and defense. As a wind elemental, it is very effective against airborne units.
Path of Radiance
Fire Emblem Cipher
The Sonic Sword is present as a skill on one card in Fire Emblem Cipher: B03-006SR Holy-Hearted Valkyrie, Mist. It is a Level S Skill which becomes active if Mist is in a stack of 3 or more cards. When active, Mist's weapon type is changed from sword to tome and her range is increased to 1-2.

(not possible in normal gameplay)
- Via hacks, it is possible for Ike to wield the Sonic Sword as a Ranger in Path of Radiance. As shown in the screenshot pictured, Ike has a different animation when using a ranged sword attack as a Ranger instead of as a Lord. This cannot be seen in normal gameplay, as there are no 1-2 range swords that can be obtained prior to Chapter 18, in which Ike would have already been promoted to Lord before the start of the chapter.
