Ettard (アロンダイト Arondaito, Alondite in the Japanese version) is the sword that Ike starts with in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. A sword similar to this is seen in a picture of Greil after Ike defeats the Black Knight in the Tower of Guidance, indicating that Greil might have used it. It is the original name of the Alondite, but the swords' names were switched in the localization of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.

In Arthurian legend, the knight Sir Pelleas loved Lady Ettard (alteratively spelled Ettarre), but she spurned his love and sent her guards out to drive him away from her castle every night. Pelleas asked Sir Gawain for help in winning Ettard, but Ettard fell in love with Gawain instead. Pelleas discovered them sleeping together and left in a rage. He later married the Lady of the Lake, Elaine, who cursed Ettard to love Pelleas as much as she had hated him, and similarly put a spell on Pelleas to hate Ettard as much as he had loved her. Ettard left Gawain and abjectly protested her love for Pelleas, but he rejected her, and lived happily ever after with Elaine.
- In the Japanese versions of Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, Ettard is actually the Black Knight's sword. Ike's specific weapon in Radiant Dawn is called Alondite. In the localized version of Radiant Dawn, Ike's sword became Ettard, due to the Black Knight's sword being renamed Alondite in the previous game.
