“A lance whose mighty blows offset its steep price.”
—In-game description, Shadow Dragon and New Mystery of the Emblem.

The Silver Lance (銀の槍 Gin no yari) is a Lance that periodically appears across the Fire Emblem series. The most powerful normal Lance weapon available in the series, the first Silver Lance that can be acquired in any given title is usually located in the inventory of a starting pre-promoted character, including the likes of Jagen, Seth or Marcus. This is done as a way to compensate for the weaknesses of the plethora of low-level characters whom the player has at their disposal in the opening chapters of the various games. This lance is a strong weapon that is able to inflict devastating amounts of damage upon most enemies, especially when it is wielded by a unit that harmonizes both Strength and Skill to deliver mighty, accurate blows. These advantages are, however, offset by the fact that Silver Lances are generally very expensive and suffer from low Durability, and should thence be employed sparingly.

An enemy-exclusive ranged version of the weapon, the Silver Javelin (銀の投撃槍 Gin no tōgeki yari lit. Silver Throwing Lance), also appears in Fire Emblem Fates.

  • Although the Silver Lance itself has gained a new weapon model in Fates, its previous model from Awakening has been reused and recolored for the weapon Xander's Lance.
