Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

Swarm (Japanese: ウォーム Worm), known as Worm in Radiant Dawn, is a tome which was introduced in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light. Originally just another ordinary magic tome, it was revised in its second appearance into one of the first long-range tomes (along with Meteor) to appear in the series. It retains its long-range tome status in Shadow Dragon and New Mystery of the Emblem.

It is yet again an ordinary tome in Radiant Dawn, here known as "Worm". It is the game's C-rank dark magic spell, and it is the weakest dark magic spell in the game.

The spell returns in Three Houses as a dark spell that instead reduces the foe's speed; in this game, it is known as Swarm Ζ (Japanese: ウォームΖ Worm Ζ).
