“Superior magic used to attack with flames.”
—In-game description, Shadow Dragon

Bolganone (ボルガノン Boruganon, translated Volganon in some Japanese versions and Volcanon in some fan translations) is a recurring Fire magic tome in the Fire Emblem Series. When cast, this spell will forcefully open up a fissure into the surface of the earth, and trigger an eruption to occur, incinerating the selected enemy target. While this tome is not as versatile as the C-rank Meteor tome, it is much more accurate and durable.

In Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, the Bolganone tome is highly effective against Beast tribe Laguz.

Non-Canon Appearances[edit | edit source]

Bolganone is used by Robin in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. They will equip this tome at the end of their Final Smash, Pair Up, to spike the enemy to the ground.

Bolganone is also used as a spell by Linde in Fire Emblem Warriors as her Strong VI attack, which is only available to her after promoting to Sage and creating the Combo IV Crest to unlock it.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Bolganone is a corruption of the word volcano via the Japanese transliteration ボルガノン Boruganon.
