“A sword effective against armored units.”
—In-game description, Shadow Dragon and Shin Monshō

The Armorslayer (アーマーキラー Āmā kirā, lit. Armor Killer) is a special Sword that spans across various titles in the Fire Emblem Series. Like its name suggests, the Armorslayer is imbued with the unique attribute of inflicting effective damage against armored units. Generally paralleling the Steel Sword in terms of Might, the only difference lies in the fact that the Armorslayer is generally heavier and less durable (with the exception of Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776).

The Armorslayer is analogous to the Hammer and the Heavy Spear.
