Areadbhar is a lance that debuts in Fire Emblem: Three Houses and is a Hero's Relic linked to the Crest of Blaiddyd.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Areadbhar was originally wielded by Blaiddyd, one of the Ten Elites who fought in the War of Heroes. The weapon releases its full power when wielded by a bearer of the Crest of Blaiddyd, granting the combat art Atrocity.

Prior to the events of the Tragedy of Duscur, the lance was carried by Lambert. In Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Rodrigue confiscates Areadbhar from one of Cornelia's generals in Fhirdiad. After reuniting with Dimitri after the ambush at Ailell, the Valley of Torment, Rodrigue gives Areadbhar to Dimitri as a gesture of loyalty.

Areadbhar appears as one of the four weapons wielded by Byleth in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Areadbhar is used as Byleth's forward and backward aerials, sideward smash attacks, and sideward specials. Similar to Marth's Falchion, moves that utilize the lance includes a powerful tipper at the end of the lance but a sour spot around the shaft.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Areadbhar was a spear used by the Irish mythological figure Lugh, which he demanded as tribute from the Persian king Pisear. According to the Oidhe Chloinne Tuireann (Ode of the Children of Tuireann), the speartip had to be kept submerged in water to prevent it from igniting.

Areadbhar's name is translated as "Slaughterer."
