Not to be confused with the spell known as Nosferatu in the Japanese versions of the GBA games


“Powerful magic that drains enemy HP. For women.”
—In-game description, Shin Monshō no Nazo

Nosferatu (リザイア Rizaia, lit. Resire; also known as Rizziah in the fan translations) is both a Light and Dark Magic spell in the Fire Emblem Series. Originally introduced as Black Magic in Fire Emblem Gaiden, it appears as a Dark spell in Binding Blade, Rekka no Ken, The Sacred Stones, Awakening, and Fates; and as a Light spell in Mystery of the Emblem, Genealogy of the Holy War, Thracia 776, Path of Radiance, and Radiant Dawn.

This tome is suitably named “Nosferatu” for its vampiric effect of absorbing HP from an enemy unit. It is especially unique in Gaiden, as it is the only weapon (apart from the Falchion) that can damage Duma after his HP has been depleted to 52.

In Mystery of the Emblem and its remake, this spell may only be cast by female magic users.

In The Sacred Stones, the Nosferatu tome is not available for purchase in any stores on the World Map, essentially meaning that only a few obtainable copies of the tome exist in any one given gameplay. Knoll joins the player's army with the tome as a starting item, and there is at least one available in a certain chest residing within the Tower of Valni. Furthermore, the shop at Narube River also offers this tome for sale when a battle takes place there, other than skirmishes in Creature Campaign.

Non-Canon AppearancesEdit

Nosferatu is the Down Special of Robin in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

Nosferatu traps an enemy directly in front of Robin, dealing damage while healing them. Robin will always deal 15% damage, however, depending where Robin hits his opponent, the healing changes. If attacking from the front, Nosferatu will heal 13% of Robin's damage. If attacking from behind, Robin will heal 16% of their damage. Nosferatu is considered a grab move and can hit through shields. It has a maximum usage of 4 casts before Robin is forced to discard it. A new tome will regenerate after 40 seconds.

However, it is mainly based upon percentage differences. If the enemy has 0% and Robin has 999%, Robin will heal 300%, when Robin has 160% and the enemy has 0%, it heals 60%. Otherwise, if the enemies damage is not lower than Robin's the above applies.

EtymologyEdit

"Resire" is most likely a reference to "resile", a word which means to "draw back" and "recoil". Its English name, "Nosferatu", is a Romanian word that is synonymous with "vampire", popularized by an unlicensed film adaption of Dracula which replaced, among other names, "Dracula" with "Nosferatu".

TriviaEdit

  • When this spell is cast on a wall or any other non-living obstacle, the wielder will still be able to leech HP from it. This can prove to be rather useful as such objects tend to lack resistance, thus returning the maximum amount of HP to the caster in question.
  • Nosferatu is the only Dark Tome in Fire Emblem Fates.
