|A render of Nidhogg and it's quiver as they appear in Monster Hunter Frontier G.

“The Sacred twin serpent bow. Luck +5.”
—In-game description, The Sacred Stones

Nidhogg (ニーズヘッグ Nīzuheggu) is a sacred Bow that appears in both Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones and Fire Emblem Awakening. Also known as the Serpent Bow (蛇弓, Jakyū), Nidhogg is, alongside the Winged Lance Vidofnir, one of Frelia's Sacred Twin treasures.

Extremely powerful, Nidhogg is a double Class Buster; Its might is doubled against Monster opponents and tripled (in the Japanese version; Doubled in the English version) against Flying opponents.

BackgroundEdit

During the events of The Sacred Stones, Nidhogg is, along with the Winged Lance Vidofnir, given to Eirika and Ephraim's army by Innes at the end of Chapter 17. The bow is then used alongside its other sacred counterparts to eliminate the threat that the Demon King poses to the continent of Magvel.

OverviewEdit

Nidhogg has extremely high accuracy and might relative to its weight. Its luck boost may seem like a modest boon, but ranged units will appreciate its boost to their evasion and critical evasion. Only five characters in the game are capable of wielding it, Innes, Neimi, Ross, Garcia, and Gerik, though that depends on which promotions they take. In the hands of a powerful unit like Innes, the Nidhogg is devastatingly powerful.

    • The tips of the arrows in its quiver arc in two directions, to resemble a snake's forked tongue.
