The Wyvern Lord (Japanese: ドラゴンマスター Dragon Master), known as the Dragonmaster in Radiant Dawn, is an advanced flying class which was introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. Based on the promoted Dracoknight of the first and third games in the Fire Emblem series, it was introduced as the advanced form of a new class family independent from the Pegasus Knight which all ride wyverns. The class wields lances and swords in every game until Path of Radiance, when they instead began to wield Axes and lances.

Wyvern Lords act as a sort of statistical counterpart of Falcon Knights, trading their pegasus-mounted rival's great skill and speed for fearsome bulk and power. Their HP, strength and defense are all very high, and despite being below average their skill and speed are still decent. Combined with their high mobility through being a flying mounted class, with both high movement and a total immunity to terrain penalties, Wyvern Lords are fantastic offensive units. However, their resistance is abysmal even compared to other physical classes. They also share the Pegasus Knight family's weakness to bows and wind magic, in addition to their own weakness to weapons designed to be effective against dragons.

In every appearance, Wyvern Lords promote from the Wyvern Rider class, with some games giving Wyvern Riders alternate options such as the Wyvern Knight, Griffon Rider, or Malig Knight. In Radiant Dawn, like all advanced classes, they can promote even further to the Dragonlord class. Wyvern Lords are not present in Thracia 776 outside of unused remnants, with the Wyvern Rider itself taking over as the advanced wyvern class and the promoted form of the Dragon Rider.
