'''Pegasi''' are winged mounts in [[Fire Emblem (series)|Fire Emblem games]]. They're very similar to their real world mythology, although they generally only accept females as riders; similar to the old myth of a unicorn almost always only accepting a pure-hearted maiden as its rider. They seem to live many years because [[Elincia]]'s pegasus belonged to her great-grandmother and still looks young, it goes to battles and it can carry Elincia. In ''[[Fire Emblem: Awakening]]'' there are black pegasi which are ridden by the [[Dark Flier]] class.

Pegasus

A pegasus from Tellius

“Ah, the pegasus, the proud, winged horse. You know, they only attach to someone they accept as their master. And did you know that pegasi fly by kicking the air, not by flapping their wings? It's a common misconception, but wings are mainly used for gliding.”
Lute to Vanessa

Pegasus (ペガサス, Pegasasu; alternately 天馬) is a recurring winged mount which presents in every Fire Emblem game and TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga.

Overview

Pegasi are a species of winged horses found in every Fire Emblem game since Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light. Pegasus are highly attuned to their rider's emotions and mind. They are extremely picky mounts and will generally only accept maidens as their riders. Once they form a bond with their rider, they become faithful lifelong partners. In Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, Pegasi are revealed to be capable of living for many years through the detail of Elincia's pegasus, who belonged to her great-grandmother but still looks young and is able to accompany her into battles. Pegasi also tend to bond well with the descendants of their original riders, such as Cynthia who inherited her mother's pegasus after her passing.

Prior to Fates, male riders were of extreme rarity, appearing only in the Mystery of the Emblem as enemy units only. They generally do not accept men to ride them alone, especially when untamed or without the presence of their riders. However, as long as their rider is mounted on them, a Pegasus will allow a man to ride on them. This is the reason why the Pegasus Knight class and its promotions throughout the franchise has been a female exclusive class in most games.

Pegasi body and wings are normally pure white for all Pegasus Knight and Falcon Knight units. Fire Emblem Awakening introduced jet-black pegasi who are the mounts for the Dark Flier class.

In the Japanese version of Fire Emblem Fates, the C-rank support between Selena and Subaki on the third path reveals the Pegasi shown in Hoshido are actually Tenma (天馬), a species of winged horses that are similar in appearance to Pegasi, but have an easier time accepting male riders, and the people of Hoshido called Pegasi holy beasts; the difference being a commonly known fact on the continent the game takes place in. Also, while Tenma allow men to ride them, on the other hand they're picky in general regarding riders of either gender and are generally unwilling for anyone ride them if their hearts are filled with hatred, as Hinoka stated in her C-Support with Subaki and her S-Support with a Male Corrin, as well as her Support with Caeda in Fire Emblem Warriors.
