The Shadowkiller (斬魔の剣 Zanma no ken) is a Sword that appears exclusively in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. It is not obtainable through normal gameplay in the North American or European releases of the game. This sword is one that, as its name implies, serves the principal purpose of vanquishing the shadows, that is to say, it inflicts effective damage against Monsters. Thence postulated as an effective Class Buster against monster units, said effectiveness is further enhanced by its low Weapon Rank and high Durability, allowing it to not just be equipped by even the less proficient in swordplay, but also last for a long period of time.

The Shadowkiller is analogous to its other low-ranked monster slaying weapon counterparts, namely that of the Fiendcleaver, the Bright Lance and the Beacon Bow.

Event This weapon was one that could be briefly obtained through a Japan-exclusive Jump Festa event in late 2004, in which players could link their Gameboy Advance systems to specially-contrived devices to incorporate a certain set of data to a selected save file through the Transfer Data menu. Only one set of data can be transmitted per save file, and can only be harnessed from Ch. 2 and beyond.
