“Villager: You're a kind soul to fight for strangers so. Here, you must take this.
Owain: By the ghost of Ike! I've found it at last! The fated mate to my sword hand! ...The divine blade, Mystletainn!
Villager: Er, I'm afraid this is a blade of extremely common make, sir. I was using it to dig a well, but I figured you might--
Owain: Come, Mystletainn! Destiny beckons!
Villager: I also used it to cut small vegetables before it got dull. ...Er, hello?”
—Owain receiving Missiletainn from a Villager in Paralogue 5
The Missiletainn (ミステルトィン Misuterutin, Mysteltinn in the Japanese version) is a personal Sword that hails from Fire Emblem Awakening, and is bound to Owain. Its description refers to it as an "apocryphal brand?" referring to its questionable authenticity. The NPC who gives Owain the sword in his recruitment chapter notably refers to it as a common blade, indicating that the sword itself probably draws its strength from Owain's fondness of it. The sword's name is a play on the pronunciation of the legendary demon blade, Mystletainn.

|Treasure||Xeno. 15 - Random from Chest.|
- Missiletainn may be a reference to Excalipoor, a recurring joke weapon from the Final Fantasy series. Like Excalipoor, Missiletainn is a misspelled version of a powerful legendary weapon (Mystletainn/Excalibur), and is mistaken for the real thing by an enthusiastic weapon collector (Owain/Gilgamesh).
- Missiletainn is the only character-specific weapon in Awakening to provide a bonus to a specific stat.
- The Missiletainn is referenced in Fire Emblem Fates when Owain's daughter, Ophelia, chose to name a tome she got from her father at the end of the paralogue. Like the original Missiletainn, Ophelia's tome is implied to actually be of common make.
