The Sword General (剣武将, Tsurugi Bushou, meaning "sword general") is a class exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, using swords, as its name suggests, as well as lances. They are the upgraded stage in an Armor Sword's class change line, and can promote to the Marshall class. Sword generals are closely related to their counterparts, the Lance General and Axe General classes.

Sword generals, as promoted classes, have quite high stats. As with most generals in the Fire Emblem series, they have high HP. Strength, and defense, which is reflected in their thick armor. Unlike mosh physical units, Sword Generals have good resistance. However they have below average speed as well as lower movement speed than other promoted units. They are strong front-line units with an emphasis on defensive utility as well as some useful offensive strength.
