A special item that lets non-magic users launch a magical attack.



First game

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

The Spectre Card (Japanese: 妖魔の術符 Ghost Technique Charm) is a item exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is a purely offensive item, a rarity for the Fire Emblem series. It gives any unit who does not otherwise specialize in magic access to a 1-2 range magical attack, using the unit's magic stat and targets the enemy's resistance.

It is the first and weakest of the three magic cards in Radiant Dawn. Using a Spectre Card or one of the other cards is the only way that heron laguz units can attack at all.
