Unit type(s)






The Stoneborn (Japanese: ゴーレム Golem) is a class of monsters which was introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. They are enormous stone titans animated by dark magic, who attack by hurling rocks of varying sizes at their prey. They possess extremely high HP, strength and defense, but conversely are incredibly sluggish with low speed, skill, and with many being entirely unable to move on the map. Thus Stoneborn rely on the high range of their weapon.

While the class has no innate skills, Stoneborn may use skills from other classes such as Toxic Brew.
