Fire Emblem Gaiden- Nintendo- 1991 FAQ by Alex Deerkop Copyright 2001. email@example.com GameFAQ name x countryguy ----------------- 1. My inspiration ----------------- I got interested in this game after I heard that two characters from this game were in Super Smash Brothers Melee. I started to play it and was impressed by its graphics. Since I saw no FAQ was written for this game I took it upon myself to write it. Note this is my FIRST FAQ, and I am probably in way over my head here. But if I get some support I just might finish this thing. Feel free to e-mail me just label the message ďFire EmblemĒ or something and I will give any credit where it is due. --------------------- 2. Table of Contents: --------------------- 1.

Version History: ------------------- V 1.0- December 7, 2001- I just started this thing, and itís going to take me a while to beat the game and write the FAQ. Bear with me. V 1.1- December 9, 2001- I started making my FAQ a little more substantial by adding magic use, menus, and battle operations. Plus I am about halfway through the first map. Iíll get there eventually. V 1.2- December 10, 2001- I finished the first chapter and started the next. I made the guide a little easier to read by defining the sections a little better. Thanks for the tip from Matt about the non-connection between Alm and Prince Marth. V 1.3- December 13, 2001- I finished the second chapter. I added info on magic and things like that. V 1.4- January 3, 2002- Note that this is Fire Emblem 2. I did half of chapter three. I also got info on magic and will start a class list soon. Sorry for not updating for a while but I got busy. -------------- 4. Characters: -------------- Alm- Seeming protagonist of the story. Blue hair and armor. Grandson of General Misen. General Misen- Old man in purple armor. He is the grandfather of Alm. General Tozeh- First villain you hear of. Ruka- Leader of a rebel group against General Tozeh. Red hair and armor, although during battle, his armor is green. Princess Sofia- The person you need to rescue in the first chapter. ----------- 5. Controls ----------- A Button- confirm, pull up menus, get info on highlighted item. B Button- cancel, scroll through characters in battle mode. Returns cursor to characterís location on world map. Start Button- no use Select- Pull up menu in battle mode. --------------------- 6. Menus and commands --------------------- Move- Move along your current path. Choose direction with d pad. Rank- Switch party order. Press A to highlight a name and press a on the name you ant to change it with. Item- Trade items with members of your party and your inventory Info- Shows player stats Item- Shows how many enemies are left and how many turns you have taken Save- Save or erase your game --------------------------- 7. Battle screens and menus --------------------------- To access the battle menu, make sure nothing is highlighted and press A or select. Menu: Roster- Shows level, exp, and a picture of what they look like Assault- Your fighters move as close as they can to the enemy or attacks the nearest one. Gather- Your fighters move as close together as they can Remove- Shows what map you are on and how many turns out of 40 you have taken. I imagine that it is a draw if you donít finish the battle in 40 rounds. Quit- My game screws up when I do this. But I think it means run. Config- Set options Music- on or off Animation- on or off Wait timer- 1-5 End Turn- Duh! ---------------- 8. Battle Setup: ---------------- You are the blue team, the enemy is red. You should notice the all-useful cursor on the screen. You can move and click on an enemy to see his class, level, and hp. Once you have checked out your enemyís strength, you can start issuing commands to your troops. Just highlight them and press A. After their stats come up press A again and the cursor will re-appear. Move the cursor and press A to move to a location. You can only move so far each turn so learn your limits and adjust your strategy accordingly. If you click on the square right next to an enemy, an option screen will come up and say fight or end. During a battle you go through a pre set number of moves and the fight ends. You get exp based on the amount of damage you inflict. If you kill your enemy, you get a larger amount of exp. A little bar appears after each battle and fills up accordingly. You level up when the bar resets. You should notice that usually there are these two by two grids of squares. This is a recovery square. There you can slowly recover your health. You can move off at any time and you can only put one person there at a time. If an enemy attacks you while you are on a square, you will still fight back so donít worry. You win the battle by killing all of the enemies. ------------------ 9. Battle Process: ------------------ After you initiate a battle, or vice versa, you are taken to a black screen. Now you automatically do whatever moves your class entitles you to do. So even if you are attacked first you can still attack back twice if you do that. Magic and archers use long range attacks, so if you have a square in between you and your enemy, you can attack and he cannot as long as he does not have a long range attack. This also is true if your stand diagonally to each other. The white bars along the top of the battle menu are the characterís hit points. Once all of the hit points are gone the character dies. Once a character is dead THATíS IT! You cannot revive people. The three status bars from top to bottom are Accuracy percentage, Attack power, and defense power. This value change when you are faced against magic or melee battles. -------------- 10. Magic Use: -------------- Magic is different in this game than in most others. Instead of costing mp to cast a spell, it costs hp to cast a spell. There are some spells that do not cost hp though. When I put _ space range it means that is the farthest you can be and still cast the spell. Cast anytime is obvious in meaning. Here is my list of magic spells and their casting cost that I know of. White: Recover- 1 hp. Heals depending on the power of the healer. One square range. Ibro- 3 hp. Heals depending on the power of the healer. Can heal anyone on the screen. Illusion- 12 hp. Creates about five soldiers. Expendable but not controllable. Cast anytime. The soldiers do not gain experience for anyone though. Black: Drain- 0 hp. Drains about 8 hp. Two square range. Fire- 1 hp. Fire elemental attack. Decent damage, 2 space range. Thunder- 2 hp. Lightning elemental attack. Higher damage, 3 space range. Excalibur- 3 hp. Non elemental, powerful. 2 space range. Angel- 4 hp. Holy attack, massive damage especially against undead creatures. 2 space range. Aura- 6 hp. Non elemental but very powerful. 2 space range. ------------------ 11. Class Changes: ------------------ Your guess is as good as mine on this one but I do have some good guesses about them. Three of your starting characters start as villagers. After they level up a couple of times, a screen will come up after all of the stats are advanced. It will say the characterís name and some more scribbles. The translation of my copy only covers dialog. Anyway, after the screen mentions that you should be able to change your class at these goddess statues. The first one you come across is in the thievesí shrine. When you do class change, however, your level goes back to one. --------------- 12. Walkthrough --------------- ----------------------- A. Chapter 1: To Sophia ----------------------- You start out with Alm pacing back and forth and speaks to Misen. After Misen speaks walk east to the group of people. Speak to the man all the way east. This is Ruka. He asks you to go talk Misen into joining them. Misen is in the building north of where you started. Leave and talk to Ruka again. This time he is on the left side of the group. After a brief conversation, Ruka will join you. Talk to the other people and they will join you as well. Once everyone joins you, save your game and exit to the right. Here is what you can expect from your characters. Alm is the strongest, toughest and can move the farthest. Attacks twice per fight. Ruka is as strong as Alm but moves a little less than Alm. Attacks twice. Grey starts at level five and is the strongest of the villagers. Attacks twice. Bird is pretty weak but still attacks twice. Cliff is the weakest and only attacks once. Soften enemies up for him and let him make a few kills, it should help him some. After leaving the village, you automatically enter into a fight. There are five level one thieves in this fight. Nobody has an item. The recovery square is located on your left. This battle isnít hard, just select the assault option and you will be fine, in case anyone does get low on hp just have them fall back and go to the recovery square. Ok, now that you beat that one. Save and move on to the next fight. Take note that your party heals completely between battles. This battle contains six level one thieves and a level one archer. Archers are a pain in the butt. They can attack from a distance and from a diagonal direction so you can not counterattack them. Concentrate your attacks on the archer, then the rest of the battle is easy. The trees slow your progress just to let you know. Nobody has an item. There are two recovery squares. They are located to the left of Almís starting point and on to the north that is covered by an enemy. Not too bad, was it? Save your game and head north to the thief shrine. Once inside, walk north and (surprise) you get attacked by thieves. Five of them in fact. Nothing to worry about, either attack them one by one or use the assault command. No recovery squares so watch it. Head north to find a girl in the room. Her name is Silk. Talk to her and find that she was kidnapped. She joins your party and guess what? She knows how to use magic, cool. There is also a statue to the north. You should be able to change the class of a couple of the villagers if you want. I say go for it since it is better than the villager class. Iím no expert on classes but the class changes do seem to be random. If you can help me out here I would appreciate it. Also, every time you come back here you get attacked by the thieves again. This next battle is tough and the only recovery square is deep within enemy territory. There are seven level one thieves, one level three thief, a level one archer, and a level 4 mercenary with a leather shield. The mercenary is really tough to kill so watch it. Silk knows Drain and recovery. Donít get surrounded. Save and head north for yet another fight. There are six level one soldiers here. They arenít too much worry. The big threat is the archer with the steel bow. His attack power is high and the steel bow gives him a longer range so donít get in his line of sight. Also be careful of the narrow passageways since you can only fit one person through at a time. There are three recovery squares in the fort. Now that you bet that group head inside the fort. Inside you will find another captive. Her name is Clea and is a knight of Sophieís. Talk to her and she will join you. There is a treasure chest containing a thunder sword. It will equip itself to Alm. Save and head to the next battle. In this next battle, there are 7 level one soldiers, a level one archer, and a level one knight. The only recovery square is located in a small fort to the north. It will take the knight a few turns to get to the battlefield, so use that time to get rid of the archer and a few soldiers. Soldiers are stronger than thieves. If you get into trouble fall back to Silk and have her heal you. I donít suggest having Silk engaging in combat, she doesnít fight well. Save and go north for the next battle. Donít worry, you have almost made it to the liberation HQ! This battlefield is pretty large. There is a narrow river running through the field. The only enemies are six level one knights, two south of the river and four north. Knights can cover a lot of ground, so just take notice of that. There are two recovery squares to the north, but the only way to get there is through a narrow bridge. One excellent strategy is to quickly kill the two southern knights. Then surround the bottom of the bridge so that one knight can move one square out below the bridge. Use your short range fighter to attack them from the sides and use your magic users, Silk, a wizard if you have one, or Alm with the thunder sword to attack diagonally. All right, you have made it to Liberation HQ. Save before you enter then do just that. A guy at the entrance will yell at you then let you pass, warning you of the monsters (great.) The next battle starts when you reach the top of the screen. Your opposition is 8 zombies and 2 skeletons. Undead monsters lurking about in a populated headquarters? Whatever, the zombies are really weak, but they have a lot of hp. The skeletons are really tough. They are weaker against magic than physical attacks, use that to your advantage. After that, head north and speak with both of these people. Iím not revealing plot here so just talk to them yourselves. They both join your group. Kreb is a knight and Fols is a soldier. If anyone needs their class to be changed you can do so at the goddess statue. Head out of the headquarters, but talk to the guy who yelled at you before. His name is Pay and he is an archer. Equip Pay with the steel bow you got earlier and he will be all set. This next battle has a ton of enemies so listen up. There are six knights, five archers, two soldiers, a paladin, a wizard, one armor class, and the Baron who yelled a you when you entered the battle. Everyone is level one but the Baron has a dragon shield. His power is 22, his defense is 31, and his magic defense is 20. As for basic strategies, they wonít come after you so you must attack them. Also on of the doors to the castle are closed, you canít open it so you only have one place to enter. Have your team gather first and then make your move. Have Pay snipe out some of the archers and have the rest of your party advance. Clea can also fly over the walls and help with that nest of enemies. Remember that Baron I warned you about? He will run away if you kill his paladin. Just remember to use long range attacks on the paladin and you will be fine. If you made it through, good! If not, try again. Save and enter the castle. Inside you will find many grateful people and a treasure chest east of the entrance. Inside is a knights lance, it will equip itself to Ruka. On the other side is an already opened treasure chest. Go up the stairs to the east and youíll find that Misen is already there. Talk to him and afterwards a save screen will come up. Congratulations. You have beaten the first chapter! --------------------- B. Chapter 2- To Titt --------------------- Yeah, I know it looks perverse but thatís what it says. Now you start off with a new character. Her name is Celica, a priest. Talk to the three ladies ahead of you. The middle one is Boey, a wizard. The one on the left is Jeni, a sister, (Similar to Silk.) The one on the right is a witch, May. Boey and Celica know fire and May knows both fire and thunder. Jeni knows Drain and recover. After you acquire your party leave by going north. Once you leave, you automatically go into battle. This battle just has seven zombies. Nothing too big, just make sure Jeni doesnít get her butt kicked, Sisters are not good fighters. Once this battle is completed save and head to the town of Nowhere. Iím not making this up here. The town is not large. Go into the tavern and you see a guy drinking at the bar. Talk to him and he joins. Sevr is a mercenary. After that, hop onto the boat and set sail. Once you get on the boat you start your next battle automatically. You are back to your basic thieves again. Seven of them in fact. You have a recovery square on your ship, make good use of it. There is only one path between the boats, use the strategy that you used before about surrounding the path. I suggest having Boey, the wizard, attack from the side since she has a higher defense than May. The thieves will go after Celica so make sure you send Jeni out to heal her. I think you have figured out what to do next. You have some tougher enemies here. First you have your basic seven level one thieves and an archer. However, the two people hoddled up in the corner of the boat are much stronger. The level three thief is not that much stronger but the person to worry about is the level four mercenary with the leather shield. Use long range attacks on the mercenary. Jeniís drain attack seems particularly effective on the mercenary, be careful since she canít take a lot of abuse. You cannot blockade the bridge in time to stop their advance. I equipped the shield to Jeni to make her a little tougher. Next comes a land battle and a fortress to contend with. Looks like you are going to get some help with this one. Once you enter the battlefield, a rather large man says something to you and he and two others will help you in your effort to take the fort. Baro, (the big guy) is an armor class, Cami is a mercenary, and Leo is an ever important archer. You canít control them though. Any help is a good thing since there are 13, count Ďem, 13 thieves on this stage. The seven closest to the boat are level one, all the rest are level five except for the notorious pirate leader, Dach. He is level ten, however, his stats are not much greater than the level one thieves. Magic attacks are still as effective as ever. One good strategy is to move your people up the right side. This draws the fire from the other three since they canít heal themselves. After the battle enter the pirate fortress. Once you are inside whoever survived from the battle will join your group. The treasure box has a steel sword inside. It will equip itself to Celica. You have got your work cut out for you on this one. Itís only one person but she is tough. She can create zombies, A LOT OF ZOMBIES! She will not move from the recovery square she starts on. I beat her by coming from the side of her. The thunder spells work okay, but if you actually get close enough to fight her do that. Apparently she will only cast her spell once against attackers but you will get two chances to get her. Give her everything you have got but be aware of the zombies, they can finish you off if you are weak. Healing is crucial so make sure Jeni can be gotten to. The zombies will disappear when she is killed. *Whew!* If you managed to not have anyone killed, then good. Save and move on. Make sure you go north because you will get your butt kicked so fast if you fight the dragon zombie now. Okay, this one is not tough. It is just a compliment of four level one thieves, two level one archers, and four mercenaries. Three are level one but one is level four. Donít worry though, he does not have a shield. Just block the bridge between the ships and let them come to you. See if you can get some of your magic users up a level. They should be learning new spells pretty soon. After brushing those guys away. Sail to the next boat. This boat holds seven level one wizards. Susceptible to physical attacks but strong magic users. There is not too much strategy involved here. Just attack and fall back when your hp gets low. Jeni has a very high magic defense so you can put her up front. This is just a little checkup. Is Celica level five yet? If not, go to the Thieves Shrine and fight the thieves until she is level five. At level five she will learn Angel. This is a very powerful attack which works great on the undead. Especially the dragon zombie in the Sea Shrine. Hint, hint. Now that you have taken my advice and gone to the Sea Shrine, this is what you have to do. This is a tough battle since Celica will not last long against the dragon. Make sure she has the leather shield equipped before you head out. Now have Celica move out and have Jeni right behind her. The dragon will come to you. Now you have to hope for some luck since Celica needs to dodge a few attacks before she can cast twice. Have Jeni heal Celica, and have Celica use angel magic on the dragon. And thatís that, good luck. I took me a few tries but donít worry. Did you beat the dragon? Good, SAVE and enter the Sea Shrine. Inside you find a large group of undead monsters. There are eight zombies and two skeletons. Make sure you drop the skeletons before they cause you undue trouble. After beating that group, go north through the graves. Go north past the statue and initiate another battle. In this battle there are three zombies, five skeletons, and two gargoyles. This one is hard since the skeletons and the gargoyles are pretty powerful. The zombies are not much threat but they can finish off a real weak character is they attack first. Have Jeni drain off of the zombies and keep her healing others. I put the Holy pendant on May so she can recover some hit points between rounds. She is still pretty vulnerable though. Make it through this one and you can claim your hard earned prize: the Holy Sword. Make sure it gets equipped to someone who actually uses a sword. After that leave the shrine. Keep going on until you get to Sophia Castle. Once inside talk to Misen. He is up next to the stairs in the northwest corner. After that talk to Alm who is waiting there. They talk and you can save your game and start chapter three. -------------------- C. Chapter 3: To ??? -------------------- The question marks are there since the name is not in English. All right, you are now in control of Alm again. Go downstairs and an earthquake hits. A man frantically talks to you then leaves, you should too. Now both Almís party and Celicaís party can be controlled. Since they are separated I will do one party at a time. Celica You have a whole lot of adversaries on this level. There are fourteen level five thieves along with, two level five mercenaries, a level five archer, and Gaha, a level ten thief. Donít panic because the two people you met in town where Celica went just before you went to the castle come to help. And help they do. Both of them are Pegasus knights. Pala is the one on top, she is level eight and the one beneath her, Catu is level five. Of course, you canít control them, but you can heal them. Now, note that your party is split into two groups, one is in the lower left and the other is on a small island in the middle. You can leave the island but they are surrounded to begin with. First off, try to surround the bridges that are north of both parties. Also see if Boey can successfully cast thunder on the boss thief. The Pegasus knights will help relieve the northern party so donít worry about May too much. Make sure Jeni heals the southern party, the archer and the boss thief will cause you some headaches if you donít. It will be tricky to have everyone alive in this one, make sure Jeni drains a thief every now and then to keep her hp up. If you did this congratulate yourself and go to the city to pick up your two new recruits. You should know who they are. Now go north to the mountain graveyard. There you will be ambushed, (big surprise), by ten level five skeletons. Their defense and offense are high but their magic defense is practically non-existent. Also they are weak against angel magic. Keep that in mind. Keep everyone healed and it might be worth it to cast illusion just so the skeletons have more people to slash through before they can get to you. Save after you beat them and go into the Mountain Village. In the village the man standing north of the houses in the village will join you. Atla is a level ten villager. His attack is high but his defense is only moderate. Once you leave the village you will be attacked in the graveyard again. This time it is only a few zombies so donít worry. This is a good opportunity to get some of your weaker characters a chance to level up. Also there might be a few mummies in the mix. They are not any stronger than the zombies but they give you a lot of experience. By now that creature that moved around by itself should be right on top of you by now. The fight involves one of those zombie creators. The only thing is that it does not create zombies. Hmmm. Just attack it like crazy since it is not any stronger than the last one you fought. Strangely enough Atla disappears for that battle. Might be a glitch. At this point you have a choice of going north or east. The battle to the north is hard so you should probably go east into the desert. If you decide to go north I will make a little bold mark for you later on. The battle to the east has a lot of enemies. There are two wizards, four mercenaries, and nine archers. They are all level one. The guy you have to worry about is Wolf the sniper. He has a steel bow and his attack power is 16. Thatís enough to get an armor shaking in his boots. A big problem with the desert is that you can only move one space at a time through the sand. By the time you make it up there the archers will have kicked your butt. Also, since Wolf can cause 16 damage to a character you had better hope that he misses a lot, (which he does.) This is really the time for your Pegasus knights to shine since the sand wont slow them down. Save and go into the desert fortress. The mercenary Jesi is being held there. He will give you some important information. Pick up the steel lance while you are there too and then leave. At this point you have a choice of going north or south. South leads you to a lot of witches. The north leads you to a whole bunch of mercenaries. The choice is up to you. I suggest leaving the witches alone since you get a powerful wizard if you do. If you went north, read on. If you went south go to the next paragraph. Okay, in this round you are up against nine level five mercenaries and a level five sword master. The sword master is the boss and the toughest one there so be wary of him. Mercenaries have practically non-existent magic defense. The sword master is very strong but his defense is manageable. Palaís attack works well and she can survive a set of his attacks assuming she is at full HP. Magic is also effective. Make sure you use the sand to your advantage since you canít move fast through the sand. After the battle the witch on the bottom of the screen will run into the fortress at the right. If you went south read this paragraph. All of the enemies on this map are witches. All but the boss are level one and know fire. The boss, Ean, is level five and knows Excalibur. Catu has a high magic defense and high mobility despite the sand. Pala is also excellent here. Be careful since the witches can TELEPORT with no penalty to their movement or attacks. They can gang up and kill a member of your party very easily. Catu is speedy and with the magic defense she can take some hits from Ean and hopefully can drain her to a point until she cannot cast anymore. Excalibur costs three hp. After the battle the sword master runs into the castle. After either battle, save and go into Fort Geeth. This fort practically holds an army. There are two level one sword masters, one of which is in the recovery square to the right of your starting point. Two level five mercenaries and thieves. Three level one wizards and a level five wizard. Two level one snipers and a level five sniper. Three level one witches. A sham and the boss. While nobody is very powerful (except the boss), they have strength in numbers. Your priorities should be the center and right snipers, the sword master to the east and the witches that pop by for a visit first. Then deal with the mercenaries, thieves, or skeletons that come by. Work your way up to the central wizard and have your armor class, Baro, beat up on the boss. Make sure you kill the shaman as fast as you can since the skeletons can overwhelm you quickly. Once the sham is killed all of the skeletons will disappear. Finish off the sniper and the wizard to the west and you will be all set. There are plenty of places to heal so make sure you use them. Now that you have finally made it through the desert enter Fort Geeth. Inside the fort you will find the boss of the group you decided not to attack. In the left cell is the Pegasus knightsí sister. She will join you. The girl in the middle knows Celica and tells her about her mother. After the conversation, she will give Celica a circlet. This will change Celicaís class from a priest to a royal. Once everyone has joined exit and go all the way back to the west. You will also get attacked by the zombies again as you go through the graveyard. Brush them away and go north to yet another battle. ---- If you went north earlier ---- The battle has three level five mercenaries, a level one witch, and the boss is a level one sword master. The regular enemies are easy, just far away. The boss has a dark sword which gives him a power of 24! What you can do is move everyone to the east and kill the weaker enemies. Then gather everyone and have Jeni cast illusion. After all of the soldiers come out have Baro follow them and let them all attack the sword master. You should be able to finish off the sword master without any casualties. By this time you may be attacked by a paladin coming from the temple up north. This is just three level one paladins. While they are pretty strong, they are not god-like at this point. These guys arenít too tough just make sure they donít gang up on anybody weak. Now, enter the Dragon Temple, (kind of ominous, donít you think?) This is a good name for the temple since you attacked by three dragon zombies in there. They are still strong but you are stronger than before. The trick is to take them out quick. Angel magic is a must, any long range attack is good, and they still wonít be able to touch Baro. Try to pull a few shots off at them with your long range people. Then as they move closer send everything you have got at them, (while keeping you distance.) If your lucky you can beat this without losing anyone. This is good since you can probably class change a whole lot of people by now. Leave and save and go north to the Mira Temple. This battle has seven level one wizards, two level one snipers, and the boss is a level five shaman. This shaman creates gargoyles. This will be a big problem if you donít take care of him fast. If you get one of your Pegasus knights on the inside of the door, she can open it and you can attack the shaman quicker. Once you complete this battle, you can finally go inside the Mira Temple. You wonít be able to do much so just leave her alone. --- Almís quest --- Hey, itís Alm. Remember him? Now you control him. So take him up north to his first battle. The regular enemies are four knights, four soldiers, two archers, two armors, a wizard and a witch. The ďbossĒ of this level is a level five armor up in the corner. Like all armors, he has virtually no magic defense. The key thing here is to get as many people as you can before the boss armor, Zack, can finally reach you. Set up your magic users and hit him with all of the magic you have. You that you beat that, save and enter Sofia Woods. Here you find a horde of wizards there. Six of them are level one and the last on is level three. Just send up some people with decent magic defense and you will be fine. Donít forget about the recovery square that is near where you start. Save and move on. This battle is just against three paladins. This isnít too bad just make sure anybody who falls low in hp falls back. Now enter the village. Talk to everybody and a wizard named Ryu will join you. What is it with people named Ken and Ryu in video games? Oh well, exit and save. This battle has a level five wizard, a level one shaman, four level one armors, and three level one archers. The shaman generates zombies so he is not much of a factor. Use Almís thunder sword to get the baron. Everything else should be straight forward. Once you beat that, enter Tozeh Fort. Donít forget to save though. Inside the fort you get to recruit the paladin that was helping you before. Also the treasure chest holds the royal sword. Save again and go north to the next battle.
