Ereshkigal (エレシュキガル, Ereshukigaru) is a Dark Magic spell from Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken. The personal tome of Nergal, Ereshkigal possesses a high Might and accuracy rate, and alongside the fact that it is relatively light (as compared to other tomes such as Excalibur and Aureola), it is thus extremely lethal in nature.
Due to the fact that this tome lacks an actual weapon rank, all characters, regardless of whether they are magic or non-magic users, will be able to wield it if it is obtained through the employment of cheat codes.
Ereshkigal was the name of the Mesopotamian goddess of the underworld. According to a certain myth, Ereshkigal tried to reprimand Nergal, the god of war, for ignoring her messengers. Nergal responded by attempting to kill Ereshkigal, whereupon she promised to marry him and elevate him to the King consort of death.
