Icon of the Wildheart skill in Radiant Dawn.

Cuts experience points gained in half but allows the unit to transform at any time.






Wildheart (Japanese: 半化身 Halfbeast) is a skill exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. Exclusively usable by all laguz except the heron tribe, it allows laguz units to ignore their transform gauge and "halfshift":[1] to shift into their animal state at any time, in exchange for receiving only half the usual stat boosts when transformed. It replaces the Demi Band item of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, which performed the same function.


Game Icon Effect Activation Capacity Notes
Radiant Dawn Is wii wildheart.png In Part 1: User remains permanently shifted, but their transformation stat boosts are halved.

In Part 2 onward: User can shift and revert at will, but their transformation stat boosts are halved. The transformation gauge still decreases, but upon reverting it is automatically refilled.

Command (Halfshift) 10 Non-heron laguz only.

Items Wildheart


  • In the NTSC English version, Wildheart's help text erroneously claims that the skill reduces experience gain. The PAL version corrected this to say the skill reduces "ability points" (stats) gained by shifting.

  1. "Nailah: As you know, we laguz fight only in our shifted forms. However, we can’t remain in that state for very long. It is too exhausting. Volug, however, has halfshifted. When he does this, he can remain in beast form all day long.
    Micaiah: Queen Nailah, I appreciate you help–
    Nailah: He is not as strong in this transitional form. Even so, he is still more than a match for any beorc.
