Go To

Since Fire Emblem has been around for nearly three decades, the script writers have managed to slip sexual innuendos in the dialogue more than once.

Pre-Awakening series (Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Mystery of the Emblem, Genealogy of the Holy War, Thracia 776, The Binding Blade, The Blazing Blade, The Sacred Stones, Path of Radiance, and Radiant Dawn):

  • In Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, there is Dew's love talk with Lachesis:
    Dew: "Everyone's been sayin' that crap. I'm not a kid anymore!"
    Lachesis: "I can definitely vouch for that, Dew. Heheh... Especially after what we..."
    • Not to mention Sigurd and Sylvia's recruit talk:
    Sylvia: "My name is Sylvia, but you can call me 'Sylvie'!"
    Sigurd: "Huh? Just a little girl. You better find a place to hide, it's dangerous here."
    Sylvia: "Little... GIRL!? You ever see a little girl with THESE!?"
    Alec: C'mon, Sylvia. You gotta start actin' a bit more grown up. You are a full-blown mother now.
    Sylvia: Don't talk to me like you're my father or somethin'! It was all your fault anyway.
    Alec: Hey now! I think the, ah... willingness on both sides led to our little surprise, don't you?
  • Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade has some dark moments for an E-rated game. Specifically, the ending you get when Bartre and Karla are paired; Karla dies of illness after giving birth to Fil/Fir. Bartre "takes their daughter to her uncle and joins Karla."
    • This might actually be a Dub Induced Plothole... but given that there were no plans to release Fire Emblem 6 out here, they figured they'd probably rather just imply that than state what really happened — Bartre is alive and well in Fire Emblem 6.
    • Though there is a more genuine example in Eliwood and Ninian's C support:
    Eliwood: Hrm... Ah, I know! Next time you are free, show me your dancing! Not one of the little dances — something special.
    Tumblr poster: “I was trying to come up with some kind of witty commentary but in the end I just need everyone to appreciate Priscilla very politely trying to figure out if Lucius is banging her brother.
  • Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones has pretty much all of Valter's lines about Eirika, which is no more or less than wanting to rape her or keep her as a Sex Slave.
    Valter: Ha ha... Eirika, eh? She’s a ripe little peach. [...] I can feel my blood rushing at the thought. This might be fun after all.
    Valter: I’ve sent a gift your way, Eirika, but I trust you can handle it. You’re my girl after all. I need you to be strong for me... Heh heh... ha ha ha ha ha!
    Valter: Eirika is mine. I won’t let you have her. She is so strong, so beautiful... She’s the prey I’ve dreamed of.
    • And lastly, there's the boss conversation when finally confronting her.
    Valter: Mmm... I’ve been waiting for you, Eirika!
    Eirika: Who are you?
    Valter: Have you forgotten? We met once at Castle Renais. No? Look closely, Eirika. Do you not remember the face of he who will master you?
    Eirika: Wha–!?
    Valter: Yes, resist. It’s much more fun for me that way. Come, Eirika. I should like to tame you.
    Eirika: I am here on a mission. One that I swore to my brother I would fulfill. I will not be stopped by the likes of you!
    • His lines about Ephraim aren't much better; Valter seems a little too excited about hunting Ephraim down. It's led to fandom jokes about Valter being a Depraved Bisexual.
    • There's also everything involving Orson in Chapter 16. He betrayed Renais to Grado in exchange for the villains resurrecting his dead wife. Said wife is never on-screen, but from Ephriam and Seth's horrified reactions, she's implied to have horribly come back wrong, only able to say "Darling" over and over and essentially being zombified. Orson doesn't care, and is disturbingly devoted to her. Yes, they somehow managed to get away with implied necrophilia in an E rated game.
  • "Right. Lord Ike, hero of the Crimean Liberation, leader of the Greil Mercenaries, and father of Sothe's children".
    • Plus, Micaiah describe the feelings that Naesala holds for Leanne and hers for Sothe as "warm"... and she does the same for what Soren feels for Ike. Hm....
  • Tibarn makes a couple of comments in the game that make it sound suspicious:
    • When he brings Leanne to the battlefield during Chapter 23, he comments that Reyson wanted to come but was too exhausted, so Tibarn says he had to tie him to his bed to keep him there. It turns out he was just kidding, but STILL.
      • Later he remarks that to stop Phoenics from joining the battle, he'd have to go around knocking all his men unconscious.
  • Shinon and Ike have a base conversation after Griel's death where Shinon is blatantly drunk and goes an angry rant about why he hates Ike, who is very confused. Usually Fire Emblem games only vaguely reference alcohol, if at all, but there's no hiding it here - Shinon even hiccups while he talks.

Fire Emblem Fates:

  • Given how, in the Birthright route, Midori can't be unlocked until a specific chapter and only IF her father Kaze survives it, it's VERY strongly implied that Midori was the result of Glad-to-Be-Alive Sex.

Fire Emblem Heroes:

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia:

Fire Emblem Warriors:

  • In Leo's introductory chapter, Niles will show up and fight by his side. Since Niles is... well, who he is, if the player sends out Lyndis and she defeats him, she will ask Niles to not look so thrilled to get beaten up.
  • Regarding the gameplay, the chance to strip the characters down to their underwear with a certain weapon is back. Even more, unlike Fates where everyone got the same kind of undies, here each character gets personalized ones. i.e., Camilla's own get-up looks suspiciously similar to a dominatrix outfit.
  • This talk between Niles and Leo is about battle tactics, yes, but it's very suggestive and it involves Niles and Leo:
    Niles: "No one can bring as many men to their knees as you, Lord Leo."
    Leo (said with his "smile" portrait): "There's no other way you could phrase that, is there? Thank you for the... praise."

Fire Emblem: Three Houses:

  • In general, the game pushes the envelope more than any of its predecessors, including a main conflict driven largely by frighteningly plausible social and economic factors, violent on-screen deaths that don't censor out any blood, and realistic themes of racism, xenophobia, and classism in character interactions.
  • In Caspar and Hilda's A support, she makes a pretty clear proposition to him, though the guy's too Oblivious to Love (Oblivious to Attraction?) to notice:
    Hilda: Well, since you're offering, why don't you come to my room? *blushes and winks* I thought of something you can do for me.
    Caspar: Your room? Are you redecorating? Or moving out?
    Hilda: *frowns* You're really oblivious, huh? I don't know what to do with you, Caspar.
    • Dorothea also gets a chance at trolling Caspar.
    Dorothea: Oh, Caspar! Just who I was hoping to see. I have a tiny little request, if you have time to help me.
    Caspar: I'm always happy to help. What can I do for you?
    Dorothea: That is exactly what I was hoping to hear. Would you mind coming along to my room?
    Caspar: Your... room? Uh. OK.
  • One of Sylvain's advice box questions has him considering ways to sneak a girl into his room at midnight without his neighbors/childhood friends noticing. One of the responses Byleth can submit back implies that Sylvain's booty calls have kept them from falling asleep as well, seeing as how their room is directly below his!
    • Pre-timeskip, one of Sylvain's Pre-Mortem One-Liners is "Open wide!" Given the above...
    • Sylvain's also implied to at least semi-regularly go out at night, drinking and "wildly carousing with women." In the Japanese version, an annoyed Felix calls him a "sex demon," changed to "insatiable" in the English localization.
  • In their C-support, Claude teases Hilda with this little gem:
    Hilda: You're a hard guy to grasp, you know that Claude?
    Claude: Oh, I disagree. I'd let you grasp me any day. My hand, my heart, even my neck. But if you want to know all of my secrets... you'll have to bare yours as well.
  • Felix's obsession with swords comes off as Accidental Innuendo more often than not. The same cannot be said for this stray bit of dialogue, if fan reactions are anything to go by:
    Felix: I'm not interested in glory or prizes. All I want is a formidable opponent [like you] to sink my teeth into.
  • The game is quite frank about Manuela's drinking. Fire Emblem has had characters get drunk before, but it's usually only mentioned in passing. One of her Lost Items is a hangover cure, she's either drunk or hungover in quite a few of her supports and it's implied she gets drunk and has one-night stands a lot.
    • On the subject of Manuela, her supports with Flayn also reveal that, in order to get roles in opera productions, she had to “spend many nights buttering up nobles”. The very grim tone with which she recounts this, as well as her description of it as “humiliating” and “shocking”, heavily imply that she was being made to perform sexual favors.
    • This one has a knock-on effect, as Manuela's friend Dorothea using the same terminology to explain how she got sponsored to take the entrance exam at Garreg Mach. Dorothea's only been 18 for a few months at the start of the academic year.
  • Yuri and Dorothea's A-support is disturbingly frank about the former's past as an underage prostitute. While past titles have alluded to prostitution and sex work in passing, it's never been the focal point of a character's story arc.
    Yuri: Back then, the Imperial capital was swarming with disgusting nobles, all of them vying for your attention [and] love. Many were willing to compromise with an inferior substitute. If they couldn't have you, perhaps someone else was capable of singing just as sweetly.
  • If you speak to Balthus after the Battle of the Eagle and Lion, he'll make a complaint that there wasn't any booze at the feast. He doesn't outright say alcohol but it's pretty clear what he means, especially when he concedes it probably wasn't being served because there were "youngsters" there.
  • There are some very disturbing implications regarding Marianne's absence from the second half of the game if you haven't recruited her, given there's an extra chair in her room...

How well does it match the trope?
