Triangle Attack 2

Triangle Attack in The Sacred Stones

The Triangle Attack is a powerful move that can be performed by certain trios of characters should they surround an enemy from three sides before attacking. This special attack was introduced in Fire Emblem Gaiden for the pegasus sisters. The participant who then attacks in that position will land an automatic critical hit. In most games, only the three Pegasus Knights/Falcon Knights are able to carry it out, however, there are a few exceptions.

Triangle attacks are generally considered impractical, both due to the relative difficulty of setting them up, and due to the fact they usually require you to raise three units of the same class, while variety is generally more desirable.

The TriosEdit

GaidenEdit

Mystery of the EmblemEdit

  • Palla, Catria, and Est.

Genealogy of the Holy WarEdit

Seisen no Keifu features the only two trios that are actually enemies rather than allies.

Sword of SealsEdit

Rekka no KenEdit

The Sacred StonesEdit

Path of RadianceEdit

  • Boyd, Oscar, and Rolf. (The player must have read the Info Conversation between the "3 Brothers" (Chapters 13 and 19). In order for the second one to appear, Oscar and Boyd must both be promoted and able to wield bows as their secondary weapons.)
  • Marcia, Tanith, and Elincia. (The player must have read the Info conversation "Holy Guard" (Chapter 28). Marcia must also be promoted by then in order for it to appear.)

Radiant DawnEdit

  • Marcia, Tanith, Sigrun, and Elincia. (Note that only three of them may take part, hence it's a Triangle Attack.)
  • Boyd, Oscar and Rolf.

Shadow DragonEdit

  • Palla, Catria, and Est.

Shin Monshō no Nazo ~Hikari to Kage no Eiyū~Edit

Since Shadow Dragon has introduced the Reclassing system, some players wonder if the three sisters are still qualified to perform a Triangle Attack. The fact is that they are, no matter what class each of them is assigned, as long as they are all adjacent to their target.
It is also worth noting that since the Triangle Attack is not considered to be a critical hit, it can bypass the effect of the "Dazzle" card in WiFi battles.

FormationEdit

Triangle Attack Formation

The attack can be performed by any of the three participants, from any side, as long as all three of them are surrounding the target enemy. The formation of a Triangle Attack usually is as follows:

  • U = Allied Unit
  • E = Enemy
 U
UEU

In the case of the three brothers, Boyd, Oscar and Rolf from Path of Radiance, bows are used instead of short-range weapons, therefore each of the participants needs to be one square away from the target.
