Speed Ring (Japanese: スピードリング Speed Ring in most games, 速さの指輪 in Gaiden and its remake) is a stat-boosting item in the Fire Emblem series, which debuted in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and appeared in the first five games of the series; it later reappeared in Echoes: Shadows of Valentia after an eighteen-year, nine-game absence.
In most of its appearances, save for Gaiden and its remake, Shadows of Valentia, as well as Genealogy of the Holy War where it instead acts as an accessory item (in the ring category of equipment in the Valentia titles), it permanently boosts a user's Speed stat when used, by anywhere from 3 to 6 points depending on the game.
Gaiden and Shadows of Valentia have the Speed Ring work differently than in other games, instead allowing recovery of 5 HP to the holder every turn; Gaiden fixes the holder's Speed stat at 40 and increasing the holder's movement by 5, Shadows of Valentia nerfing the effect to a 10-point boost to Speed and a one-point boost to movement.
Like most stat boosters that appear in the Jugdral games, the Speed Ring was retired after Thracia 776 in favor of the Speedwing(s); it is the only stat booster to be retired after the Jugdral games to later reappear in another game.
