* AlwaysAccurateAttack: The Sniper class has the Sure Strike ability, which ensures the next attack will always hit. Unfortunately, the Snipers you have will have high enough accuracy, so it's rather useless.
** But of course, the ''enemy'' Snipers will get some mileage out of the technique.

** Ephraim is basically [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Hector]], but with lances instead of axes. It's not unheard of for him to cap out ''several'' stats even before promoting.

** The powerful Luna tome from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade'' had its accuracy cut in half, its CriticalHit rate reduced substantially, and had its price hiked up so it's bank-breaking to purchase.

* {{Nerf}}: The game-breakingly powerful Luna spell from the previous game (which could let its wielders take out even the end bosses like last week's trash) is made more cumbersome in this game, having its accuracy cut substantially as well as being rather bank-breaking to purchase. Paladins are also a little weaker in this game than they were in VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe due to losing the use of Axes to help differentiate them from the Great Knight, though it's consistent with pre-Elibe games.

* ScriptBreaking: It's possible to get some support conversations that refer to characters that haven't joined your party yet. Notably Neimi's A-level support with Gilliam refers to Cormag being intimidated by her stare, even if Cormag is still a soldier of Grado.

** A bit of HypocriticalHumor too, since L'Arachel's portrait shows that her own shoulders are bare.



* SchrodingersGun: It doesn't matter if you chose Eirika's route or Ephraim's route, you will always encounter the same recruitable characters.



** This was a translation error. The Japanese script refers to "Coma", which is the Japanese name of Colm, whom Neimi DOES know. An understandable mistake. And in hindsight, a positive error at that - bows are very effective in shooting down flying units (such as Cormag), who would worry about archers.

The story takes place on the continent of Magvel, as the southernmost country, Grado, attacks Renais. Renais had been allies with Grado for years, and was caught completely off guard. The game itself starts with Renais' princess, Eirika, fleeing from her castle as it is overrun. She then goes off in her search for her brother Ephraim, and her childhood [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend friend]], Lyon, the Prince of Grado, in hopes of finding out why Grado attacked, and how to stop the war.

Added DiffLines:
