The Dead King's Lament is the eighteenth paralogue chapter in Fire Emblem Awakening. As a paralogue chapter, its events are not integral to the game's main storyline and can be done at the player's leisure. It is one of a group often called the "SpotPass paralogues", as the chapter is unlocked via a SpotPass interaction and also requires beating chapter 25 in order to play. This chapter is unlockable via SpotPass starting May 2, 2012 in the Japanese version, February 14, 2013 in the North American version, and May 2-3, 2013 in the PAL version.

In this chapter, the Shepherds take on a group of dread pirates led by a self-proclaimed sea king in an attempt to liberate the southern half of an island off Plegia's coast. Among the sea king's underlings happens to be Gangrel, the former king of Plegia.

Plot

Main article: The Dead King's Lament/Script

A pirate named Zanth notices that the Shepherds are approaching him, and he orders his men to prepare for battle against them. Gangrel is displeased to hear Chrom's name, but resigns himself to fighting him again. Elsewhere, Chrom confirms to Frederick that they have found the "dread pirates", and Frederick informs him of the strength of Zanth's army.

In battle, Chrom can talk to Gangrel multiple times. The first time, Chrom recognizes Gangrel, but Gangrel leaves before Chrom can ask any questions. The second time, Gangrel requests that Chrom kills him, and explains how far he has sunk since his defeat, considering himself dead "but [his] body refuses to accept it"; Chrom refuses Gangrel's request, explaining that Emmeryn has strongly influenced him and he has no vendetta. Chrom offers for Gangrel to join them and defeat Grima, but Gangrel refuses. The third time they speak, Gangrel again requests that Chrom kill him, and Chrom again refuses; Chrom then berates Gangrel for his resignation to meaninglessness, and asks again for his aid; Gangrel, frustrated, finally accepts.

After the battle, Frederick and Chrom reflect upon the peace now afforded to the nearby villagers.

Website summary

Note: The returning characters list only those recruited by the time this chapter is unlocked. As a paralogue chapter, there is no set timeframe in which the chapter must be taken on; thus, it is possible to have recruited more characters than the above by the point the chapter is started. The returning characters list also does not include any characters recruitable in other paralogues, as the player may not have taken on any other available paralogue chapters yet. The list also does not include any bonus units, as they are recruitable at the player's discretion.

Strategy

This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

In order to make things easier when recruiting Gangrel, weapons should be unequipped so as to not accidentally kill him during counterattacks.

Trivia

  • The map of this chapter is based on that of Chapter 1 of Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem.
    • This chapter's location on the world map also corresponds to that chapter, being located in the peninsula that was previously Grust.
  • This is the only SpotPass paralogue that does not take place on the Valmese continent's side of the game world.
  • Due to how paralogue chapters work in Awakening, it is possible to liberate the south side of the island before the north side.
