Four-Fanged Offense is Chapter 23 in Eliwood's story (24 in Hector's) in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade.

Depending upon which boss you fight, the map will be different.

Both maps have an arena. Use it to train your units, since it will be the last arena you can access (apart from 29x(E)/31x(H), where you only have 5 turns to use it). Both maps also have 2 armories and 2 vendors. In this chapter, you can either recruit Geitz (Linus' version) or Wallace (Lloyd's version). For Lloyd's version, there is a Fog of War. In both routes, one of the villages gives you an Earth Seal, which can be used to promote almost any character (except Pirates, Thieves, and Lords), and the other village gives you a Silence Staff.

Linus' Version[edit | edit source]

Lloyd's Version[edit | edit source]

Info[edit | edit source]

  • This is a Fog of War chapter.
  • Wallace can be recruited in this chapter. He has a Hand Axe and a Silver Lance. Talk to Wallace with Lyn, Sain, Kent, Wil, or Florina.
  • Lloyd is the boss of this chapter. In Eliwood's Story, he wields a Silver Sword and does not move, so he can easily be defeated by ranged attacks. In Eliwood's Hard Mode, he will move to attack if someone is range, but will not advance otherwise.
  • However, in Hector's Story, he wields a Light Brand and also will move, making him far more dangerous. It is suggested that a high-resistance unit be placed at the edge of his range to draw him in and magic-users or strong lance-wielders be waiting to take him out.
  • There is an Arena in this chapter.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is implied that Harken was the person in the village in Four-Fanged Offense who gives the Silence Staff. That individual says he wears the garb of the Black Fang as he has infiltrated the organization and is, despite appearances, a loyal citizen of Lycia; this self-description is fairly accurate of Harken. Probing the ROM shows that for this sequence, the game does indeed load Harken's portrait data along with that of whichever player unit visited the village; it simply is not shown on-screen.
  • Despite the fact that the group encounters a Myrmidon named Igor (who seems to be Linus' second in command) on Linus' map, no enemy Myrmidon actually appears in the battle.
  • In Lloyd's version of the chapter, the leftmost 10 tiles are identical to the rightmost 10 tiles of chapter 2 of The Binding Blade, with the exception of a forest tile being replaced by an arena in Blazing Sword, and the bottom-left of Lloyd's version not being visible in the bottom-right of Binding Blade's chapter.
  • If you play Lyn’s tale and do not use the knight’s crest on Wallace, he will be unpromoted and unable to use his hand axe in this chapter.
  • In Linus’ version of the chapter, Geitz appears on the west side of the map, close to the house where Nino and Jaffar are located. However, in Hector’s Mode, Geitz appears on the southern side of the map, close to the village which contains the Earth Seal.
