First game

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

The Vulnerary (Japanese: きずぐすり Vulnerary) is a basic and common healing item which first appeared Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, and is available in all subsequent games except Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, as well as Genealogy of the Holy War. When used, Vulneraries heal injured units by a relatively small amount, usually ten hit points of damage; this makes them more effective earlier in the game, before units have had an opportunity to level up and achieve higher amounts of maximum HP. An exception to this is the Vulneraries of Thracia 776, which instead restore all HP to a unit, acting more like the Elixir of other games.

Fairly cheap and with at least three uses, Vulneraries are valuable assets at the beginning of the game, when the player usually does not have access to a healer. In most games, many playable units will also already be carrying a Vulnerary in their inventory when they join the player's party, making Vulneraries even more easily accessible.

Etymology and other languages

Names, etymology and in other regions
Language Name Definition, etymology and notes
English Vulnerary As a noun, refers to a medicine for treating flesh wounds. It is derived from the Latin vulnus, "wound", the same origin as the modern English word "vulnerable".
Japanese きずぐすり Romanized as Vulnerary in its internal file names in Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn. Literally speaking, きずぐすり (more commonly spelled as the kanji 傷薬) translates as "ointment", suggesting that vulneraries are applied to the wound as ointment rather than being drunk as potions, as its names in the French and Spanish translations imply.
Spanish Poción Potion
French Potion Potion
German Heilmittel Medicine
Italian Unguento Ointment
