Light Magic (光魔法 Hikari Mahō) is used by Monks, Bishops, Light Mages, Valkyries, Light Sages, Light Priestesses and Sages. It is powerful against Dark magic but weak against Anima magic, though in the SNES games such as Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War and Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, light and dark magic are neutral against each other. It can be seen as the magical equivalent to the Sword.
Light magic is known for having the highest accuracy but lowest might of the three magic types. It is also known for the fact that almost all of its tomes have a critical rate, excluding Aureola and Purge.
Light magic is often associated with churches and are usually rarer than Anima or Dark magic to be used by enemies. Nevertheless, despite the stereotyping that Light magic usually means on the "good" or "right" side and vice versa for Dark magic, several light magic users used it for evildoings instead as in the case of Kenneth, Lekain and Riev. Most users of Light Magic both good and evil are or were connected to the church in some way, with the Light Mage's class description implying that a lack of affiliation is nonetheless possible, albeit highly unusual.
