“A powerful solution that restores all HP.”
—In-game description, The Sacred Stones
Elixirs (特効薬 Tokkōyaku) are HP-restoring items that appear across the Fire Emblem Series, beginning with Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. In line with its etymological role as a magical restorative that extends a given person's life when consumed, the Elixir is capable of completely restoring the HP of its user. This effectively makes Elixirs the best HP-restoring item, followed by Concoctions, Vulneraries, and Herbs. Given the massive benefit that the Elixir brings, it comes as no surprise that it is rather scarce, usually accompanying characters who join at a juncture nearer the Endgame point.
The Elixir is regarded to be a special item in TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga, a fact that is indicated by a black star that is assigned to its name [★Elixir (エリクサー Erikusā)]. In this game, the ★Elixir's etymological role is further emphasised on, as it, contrary to its Fire Emblem counterpart, possesses the effect of resurrecting its user when they run out of HP.
