The Thunder Mage (Japanese: 雷魔道士サンダーマージ Thunder Mage) is a basic magical class which was introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, appearing only in it and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. The class is one of three element-specialized versions of the Mage class of other Fire Emblem series games, along with the Fire Mage and Wind Mage, and as its name suggests it specializes in thunder magic and is unable to wield any other magic type.

The Thunder Mage plays near identically to standard Mages as a purely offensive magical class, differing only in being restricted to thunder magic. Thunder Mages have high magical power and speed, allowing them to somewhat reliably double-attack enemies, and in particular making them notably adept at killing slow, heavily-armored Knights. However, Thunder Mages have low HP and defense, making them highly susceptible to being killed or severely damged in one shot by most physical units.

In Genealogy of the Holy War, Thunder Mages promote to the Mage Fighter class. In Radiant Dawn, Thunder Mages instead promote to the Thunder Sage class, which in turn promote to the Arch Sage class.
