The Venin Edge (毒の剣 Doku no ken, also referred to as the Poison Edge, Poison Sword, or Venin Sword), is a special Sword that concurrently appears across various titles in the Fire Emblem Series. Generally possessing a lower Accuracy rate when relatively compared to other swords, this flaw of the Venin Edge is offset by its unique ability of poisoning a selected enemy unit, provided that the blow inflicted is a successful one. This sword is generally wielded solely by enemy units, and is thus rendered largely unobtainable without the employment of cheats and/or hacks. However, it may be possible to obtain the blade, specifically through getting a Thief to Steal it if the enemy unit in question has it unequipped, usually the result of him/her either having switched weapons or being subjected to the effects of the Disarm skill. In Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, it is possible to obtain this sword through the forging of a random Rusted Sword found in latter dungeons.
