The Earthstone (地竜石 Ji ryūseki, lit. Earth Dragonstone) is a personal Dragonstone that is exclusive to Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and its remakes. It is exclusive to Earth Dragons.


The Earthstone allows compatible Manaketes to assume the form of a Earth Dragon. Throughout all of its appearances, the Earthstone is exclusively used by the Earth Dragon Medeus.


The Earthstones bonuses differ from game to game; in Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, the Stone is exclusive to Medeus, and imbues him with the power to negate ranged attacks and also receive a bonus of Defense +23; in Mystery of the Emblem, upon transformation, the Earth Dragon gains breath that has the ability to halve the power of enemy attacks.

If the player hacks the game or employs cheats in Mystery of the Emblem, it is possible for the Earthstone to be obtained and curiously can be used by Tiki.

In Shadow Dragon, the weapon is once again exclusive to Medeus and is the only Dragonstone to be 1-2 ranged. The Earthstone gives: +10 strength, skill, and speed, +13 defense, and +20 resistance; the highest dragonstone bonuses by a wide margin. In the first turn of the final chapter, Medeus uses the Earthstone to transform into the Earth Dragon class.

By hacking or using cheat devices, Medeus and the Earthstone can be made available for player use. Through this, it is learned that the Earthstone can be used for a single attack with temporary stat boosts just like the other dragonstones within the game. Though the map animations for Medeus transforming and back are finished, the in-battle animations for Medeus using the Earthstone in this manner are incomplete, and depict him turning into a Fire Dragon to use Dark Breath. Only in the final map can Medeus use the Earthstone to be in the Earth Dragon class. If another cheat is used to move Medeus to an earlier chapter after the final chapter, he will stay in the Earth Dragon class.
