Elite Mode is a hidden gameplay mode in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. It can be activated by starting a new game, highlighting an empty save slot, then pressing right, left, right, left, right, left, right, right, in that order. Then press B, and you should hear a chime and see the option to access Elite Mode. This gives every player unit in the game an innate Paragon skill, doubling their experience gain. Any unit that already had the Paragon skill will also gain the innate Paragon skill from Paragon Mode, furthering their experience gain to 4x. As a result, it could be seen as sort of an "Easy Mode" for the game, although it can also make it more difficult to fully capitalize on growth rate boosts from Crusader Scrolls.
