“The Sacred Twin black axe. Spd +5.”
—In-game description

Garm (ガルム Garumu) is a sacred Axe that appears exclusively in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. Also known as the Black Axe (黒斧, Kokufu), Garm is, alongside the Dark Tome Gleipnir, one of Grado's Sacred Twin treasures.

As with all other Sacred Twin weapons, Garm has the ability to inflict effective damage against Monster units. When equipped, this axe grants its wielder a bonus of +5 to their Speed. Since most axe users generally lack speed, this bonus is very appreciable.

BackgroundEdit

During the events of The Sacred Stones, Garm is, along with the Dark Tome Gleipnir, kept near the Sacred Stone of Grado within Grado Keep. Following the siege of Grado Keep in Chapter 14B, Knoll reveals the location of both relics, and gives them to Ephraim's army. The axe is used with the other sacred weapons to eliminate the threat that the Demon King poses to the continent of Magvel.

Overall Edit

Garm possesses a deadly mix of power,speed, slayer utility, and accuracy (among axes, only Hatchets and Swordslayers are more accurate.) This is compounded by the fact that most units capable of wielding it(including, notably, Gerik) will have enough CON to use it without incurring a speed penalty.

This combination of stats makes Garm arguably the most dangerous axe in all of the GBA games, possibly surpassing even Armads, and can turn otherwise average axe units into killing machines.

EtymologyEdit

Garm, similar to Fenrir, is in Norse mythology a huge four-eyed hound who guards the entrance to the underworld (similar to Cerberus in Greek mythology). It is said that when Ragnarök, the Norse Apocalypse, comes around, Garm will break free and fight the gods alongside the giants. The god Tyr will kill Garm but die from his wounds.
