Fimbulvetr (フィンブル, Finburu) is an A-rank Anima tome recurring in the GBA titles of the Fire Emblem Series and appearing again in Fire Emblem Fates. In Fire Emblem: Binding Blade, this tome cannot be obtained in the main storyline, and is instead acquired upon unlocking Brunya for use on the Trial Maps. This tome's help description reads that it conjures "Blasts of Ice" when cast.

In general, late-game boss characters of the Sage class use this tome. Also, when a character possessing a high Resistance stat enters the Arena, Sages wielding the Fimbulvetr tome tend to appear as opponents.

Unlike its other incarnations, the Fimbulvetr in Fire Emblem Fates is a common C-rank tome, acting as the tome equivalent to a Steel weapon.

OverviewEdit

In the three GBA games, Fimbulveter serves as the strongest non-legendary Anima tome. It could theoretically be a good option for taking on promoted enemies with high HP and middling to low Speed, or for one-shotting enemy units that would otherwise endure a round of magical combat. Unfortunately, it consistently appears too late to be particularly useful. In fact, in both Binding Blade and The Sacred Stones, the player should already have an S rank anima tome in his or her inventory before even getting a chance to acquire Fimbulvetr. As Fimbulvetr is essentially inferior to Forblaze and Excalibur in every way, it basically serves as a lesser 'back up' spell to the legendary weapons. Its Weight in Rekka no Ken and The Sacred Stones also significantly limits its usage, as even Moulder will not be able to wield it without a speed penalty unless he is given a Body Ring.

TriviaEdit

EtymologyEdit

In Norse mythology, Fimbulvetr literally means "the great winter". This winter is one that is said to last three years, and is marked by warfare and bloodshed. This essentially marks the beginning of Ragnarok, the end of the world.
