Thief Fighter (Japanese: シーフファイター Thief Fighter) is an advanced class which was introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. It is present only in Genealogy and Thracia 776, as the promoted form of the Thief, and is the first time in the Fire Emblem series that Thieves were given the ability to promote. Thief Fighters continue to wield only swords and have access to the Steal skill.
Thief Fighters are still primarily oriented toward a utility role through their ability to steal, and despite their name as "fighters", their combat ability is still shaky at best. Their highest stat by far is their speed, which keeps their avoid relatively high but not enough to compensate for their mediocre strength and poor defensive stats. This presents a problem in Genealogy of the Holy War, where their stealing utility involves attacking enemies to take their supply of gold and putting themselves at risk; this is not a problem in Thracia 776, where stealing enemies' items or unlocking doors or chests does not require that Thief Fighters endanger themselves as much in combat.

- In Thracia 776, the Thief Fighter and Dancer hold the unique distinction of being the only pair of classes in the entire Fire Emblem series which are mutually capable of promoting into each other, although only Lara can do this. While it is highly impractical, it is actually possible for Lara to promote a total of three times, going Thief -> Thief Fighter -> Dancer -> Thief Fighter.
