This article is about the series of weapons. For the weapon named "Sword" in Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi and Fire Emblem Gaiden, see Iron Sword.

The SwordSword (剣, Tsurugi) is one of the four physical weapon types in the Fire Emblem series that comes in many different materials and variations (i.e. Iron, Steel, Silver, etc.) and can only be used by certain classes. In the weapon triangle, they have an advantage over the Axe and are at a disadvantage to the Lance (vice versa if using a Lancereaver). They are bought from armories at varying prices.

Typically, most classes that specialize in swords have high Skill and Speed, matching the sword class in high accuracy and low weight. Every Lord class in the Fire Emblem GBA games (except Ephraim) can use swords, because Hector gets the ability after promotion.

Swords are the lowest in terms of power in the weapon triangle, but have the highest speed and accuracy. Certain swords are known for being imbued with magic that can be used at a distance as well as directly, such as the Levin Sword, Light Sword or Light Brand and Wind Sword. Unlike those swords, only the Runesword differs because it drains the targeted unit's HP, just like Nosferatu. Most personal weapons are swords as well, such as the Sword of Seals, Ragnell and Rapier. Light Magic can be considered the magic version of the sword, as it is the lowest in terms of power but the highest in terms of speed and accuracy.
