A staff that opens locks.



First game

Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem

The Unlock (Japanese: アンロック Unlock) is a rare staff in the Fire Emblem series. It gives its user the ability to open any door, and in Thracia 776, any chest. Thanks to its low weapon level, almost any staff user can wield it. The exceptions are Radiant Dawn, where it has a C rank, and Thracia 776, where it is exclusive to Tina.

The unlock staff appeared first in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem. Since then, it has been present in all subsequent games but Genealogy of the Holy War, Shadow Dragon, Awakening, Fates, and Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.
