Shadowgift (暗闇の加護 Kurayami no kago lit. Dark Blessing in the Japanese version, Don oscuro in the Spanish version) is a unique Skill introduced in Fire Emblem Awakening.


Units equipped with Shadowgift are able to use Dark magic in any tome-wielding classes outside of the Dark Mage and Sorcerer classes. In Awakening, it is a skill unique to Aversa and can be passed down to Morgan if she is the former's daughter. Micaiah and Katarina's DLC Einherjar also have the skill.

In Fates, the skill is a class skill, learned by Witches at level 1 or higher.

Applicable Classes




  • Due to the inheritance system and the characters that have the skill, Shadowgift can only be wielded by female units in Awakening, much like how Conquest can only be obtained by males.
  • Due to Nosferatu being the only Dark Magic in Fates, Shadowgift is only useful for using that tome.
