Apocalypse (アポカリプス, Apokaripusu) the Elder Revelation (黙示の闇, Mokushi no Yami lit. Darkness of the Revelation) is a Dark magic tome that appears in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. Created during the Scouring for use against Manaketes, Apocalypse was wielded by Bramimond, who perfected it amongst the ruins on Valor, the Dread Isle, at the cost of his humanity. After the Scouring came to pass, the Apocalypse tome was sealed in the Shrine of Seals, where it was guarded by Bramimond for some 980 years. When the series of events involving Nergal takes place in The Blazing Blade, the seals placed over the legendary weapons are removed. However, Apocalypse is not lifted from its resting spot until the war undertaken by the Lycian Alliance against Bern, where Roy retrieves it upon reaching the Shrine of Seals. After the war, it is unknown as to what could have happened to the Apocalypse tome.
The Apocalypse tome is the strongest magic spell in The Binding Blade, where it has the potential of inflicting 45-53 damage on enemy units if cast by a worthy Druid, even without any supports. This tome is well-known for its unique animation, where it takes a relatively long time to be cast, alongside possessing unorthodox sound effects.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
The Apocalypse is a term that is commonly used in English to refer to the end of the world. In actuality, the word, originating from the Greek language, is translated as a disclosure of divine knowledge, hidden from humanity in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception, and can be roughly translated to English as revelation, disclosure, divulgence, exposure or unmasking.
