Type

Sword

First game

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

The Steel Sword is a fairly common sword-type weapon in the Fire Emblem series, having appeared in every game of the series. It is stronger, but heavier and less accurate than the basic iron sword. Usually, it is wielded by units with some experience in battle, except in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, where it could be used by anyone due to its very low weapon level.
