“Strong against cavalry/armored units. For Marth.”
—In-game description, Shadow Dragon and Shin Monshō no Nazo

The Rapier (レイピア Reipia) is a special Sword that recurrently appears in a majority of the titles within the Fire Emblem Series. In all its incarnations, the Rapier is exclusively bound to Lord characters who function as the paramount figures of importance in their respective stories. Exceptions to this strict rule include Mystery of the Emblem, in which the dancer Feena is also able to wield the blade, alongside Thracia 776, in which all sword-wielding units may equip the blade. This blade possesses the unique ability of allowing its wielder to be able to inflict effective damage against cavalry and armoured units; a trait that is shared with six other weapons in the series, including the Wolf Beil, Mani Katti, Reginleif, the Regal Sword, Thani, and the Wing Spear. The Regal Sword is known to boast statistics that parallel that of the Rapier.

It is possible for the player to procure multiple Rapiers (apart from the mandatory one that almost every Lord character wields at the beginning of their respective games) in a single play-through of any given Fire Emblem title, specifically through the visiting of Villages, the raiding of Chests or simply purchasing them from a select few armories. The Rapier still remains elusive nonetheless, to the point where even the armouries selling them only carry limited supplies of the weapon.

Non-Canon AppearancesEdit

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.Edit

The Rapier appears in the game under the possession of Marth. It allows Marth to strike enemies weak points much more easily.

TriviaEdit

  • The Rapier resembles the Florete blade, not just due to the fact that they are bound to specific individuals in the respective games that they appear in, but also because they bear high Critical hit rates and are named after fencing swords (Rapier and foil respectively).
  • In spite of the fact that the Rapier is effective against almost all mounted and and armoured units (depending on the game in question), the in-game description of the weapon states that it is "effective against infantry".

EtymologyEdit

During the early 1500s, the rapier blade took on a rather prestigious status in Europe, where it was regarded as being extremely fashionable by the wealthier facets of society. Such a fact is more than apt in the context of the Fire Emblem Series, in which the Rapier's unique trait of being bound to Lord characters serves as a pivotal means to emphasise on the regal, venerated positions that they possess in the factions that they are respectively aligned to.
