The Wind Sword (Japanese: かぜの剣 Wind Sword) is a sword introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. It is one of a number of magic swords present in the series: it functions as a normal sword, fuelled by the wielder's strength and targeting the enemy's defense, when attacking directly at 1 range, but can also be used to cast wind spells to attack enemies at 2 range. When used to attack from afar, the Wind Sword targets the enemy's resistance stat, and in the case of Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776, is fuelled by the wielder's magic stat.

- In Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, the Wind Sword's help text string ("A magic sword capable of striking at a distance.") is actually formatted to have a line break halfway through it and thus take up two lines, like an item description, but as a weapon description only one line is displayed, so all is readable is "A magical sword capable of" before it cuts off; even if the line break wasn't there, however, the string would still be too long to fit in the box. This may suggest that the Wind Sword may have been intended to be left unused in international versions of Fire Emblem, and so the extra-length text string was left uncorrected without anticipating the Wind Sword's inclusion in the Double Dash!! distribution. The description is fixed in the PAL English release ("A long-range magic sword."), even though the absence of a similar distribution event in Europe leaves it actually unused in the PAL release.
