The Gungnir (グングニル Gunguniru, also officially translated as Gunguneel in Fire Emblem Treasure) is a holy Lance from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. This lance was once wielded by Dain the Crusader, bestowed upon him by an unidentified Divine Dragon during the Miracle of Darna. The Gungnir is the property of Dain's descendants, who are the heirs of the Kingdom of Thracia.

The holy spear of the Thracian dragon kings, the Gungnir is similar to the Gáe Bolg, but it grants a bonus to Speed in place of Skill. The Gungnir may only be equipped by users possessing major Dain holy blood, the only units to do so being Travant and Areone. No playable characters fulfill this requirement and it is unobtainable in the game.


Gungnir first appears in Chapter 5 of Genealogy of the Holy War, where it is wielded by Travant when he leads a squadron of Dragon Knights to carry out the Yied Massacre, during which Quan, Ethlyn and Leonster's Lance Ritter are ambushed and slain.

Travant later gives the Gungnir to his son Areone in Chapter 9, who uses it against Seliph's army both in the same chapter and the Final Chapter to avenge his fallen father. Areone eventually turns against Julius in the Final Chapter when Altena speaks to him, after which he pledges to wield the Gungnir for her sake.
