The Siegfried is a Sword that debuted in Fire Emblem Fates.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Siegfried was one of five weapons crafted by the Rainbow Sage to be used by humans in order to end the war between the First Dragons. Alongside Brynhildr, the Raijinto, and the Fujin Yumi, it is necessary in order to unlock the full power of the Yato. After the war, the blade was passed down through the Nohrian royal family. Its current known wielder is Xander, the crown prince of Nohr.

During the Heirs of Fate Xenologues, Siegbert inherits the sword and uses it as his main weapon.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Siegfried is a German-given name, composed of the Germanic elements sig, meaning "victory", and frithu, meaning "protection and peace". It is also the name of a Germanic legendary hero featured in the poem Nibelungenlied, also known as Sigurd in the Völsunga saga, who most famously appeared in the operatic cycle The Ring of the Nibelung composed by Wagner. A Valkyrie who is the queen of Iceland in that poem, Brynhildr (Brünnhilde) is the namesake of Leo's legendary tome, further adding to the allusion.

The name Siegfried belongs to a figure of Norse mythology whose parents have also had two legendary weapons named after them in the Fire Emblem series, Siegmund and Sieglinde.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Siegfried's size and height vary between promotional materials and in-game cutscenes. In promotional materials such as Xander's official artwork, the sword only goes up roughly to his waist. In-game movie cutscenes and the weapon's internal gameplay model, conversely, depict Siegfried as significantly greater in width and height, being depicted to be a massive blade, both in terms of width and height.
  • One of Garon's Fire Emblem Cipher cards depicts him in his youth wielding Siegfried. It is never mentioned in Fates if he was the wielder of the blade prior to Xander.
    • Similarly, one of Leo's cards depicts him wielding Siegfried after the events of Birthright, though it is never mentioned in Fates proper.
  • In Fire Emblem Heroes, Siegfried has the Distant Counter skill built into it, referencing the 1-2 range it had in Fates. Unlike in its home game however, Siegfried cannot be used to attack at 2 range.
