The '''General''' is a physical combat class that debuted in ''[[Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light]]''.
A class that recurrently appears across the Fire Emblem Series, it is most often the promoted form of the Knight class. Generals primarily wield Lances as their weapons of choice, but in other specific titles, this class is known to be armed with other types of weaponry alongside the Lance, a fact that further increases its combat viability. The General class is defined by superior offense and Defense, alongside a fairly decent evasive ability for their bulk and somewhat decent Resistance. These strengths are offset by the class's lack of maneuverability.

Generals first appear in ''Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light'' as a powerful armored class surpassing the [[Knight]]. Despite this and the class roll indicating otherwise, the Knight class does not promote into this class, possibly due to hardware and time limitations. Generals only wield Swords in this installment, unlike their Knight counterparts, who wield both Swords and Lances. While most Generals appearing in the game are enemy units, a powerful late-game unit of this class is recruitable. This is the only ''Fire Emblem'' title where Generals do not wield Lances or have it as their main weapon.
