The Lockpick item was used in many of the original Fire Emblem games.

This made it a very valuable item to have.

Lockpicks are very rare to get in the Fire Emblem games they exist in. One always comes with the first Thief unit a player receives in the game so that the Thief can pick locks right from the get go. Other than that Lockpicks can only be purchased in [[Secret Shop]]s in the games and the only other way to obtain them is to use your Thief, Assassin or Rogue to [[steal]] a Lockpick from an enemy Thief. This is usually not that difficult since non-player thieves are often quite weak and don't pose a threat to any player controlled units.
