The Rescue Command is a command that allows a playable unit to "pick up" another adjacent, allied unit who has a lower constitution than the user's aid. The rescuee will occupy the same space as the rescuer, but they cannot perform any action in that state and they must move in unison with the rescuer. They also cannot be harmed in that state, but the rescuing unit will suffer decreased skill and speed. This command is useful in levels where if certain units survive, the player gains a special item. It can also be used by mounted units to transport slower units around.

In Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, mounted units cannot be rescued.
