“Opens doors and chests. Usable only by thieves.”
—In-game description, The Sacred Stones

The Lockpick (ピックロック Pikku lokku, lit. Picklock) is an item that recurs across earlier titles in the Fire Emblem Series. Locked to the Thief class set, users of the Lockpick are able to unlock both Doors and Treasure Chests without the aid of either the Door Key or the Chest Key.

Lockpicks are rare in the titles that they appear in. One always comes with the first Thief unit who joins, permitting them to pick locks right from the get go. Apart from this, Lockpicks can only be obtained either by purchasing them from Secret Shops in certain chapters or by stealing them from enemy Thieves.

Beginning from Path of Radiance, the advent of Thief units being imbued with the innate skill of picking locks without having to expend any items has rendered the Lockpick obsolete, causing it to be removed from gameplay altogether.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In The Sacred Stones, while the Lockpick can technically be used by Rogues, they do not necessarily need to wield it due to their native ability to pick locks.
