Smash Brethren 3 (Red vs. Blue (Decisive Battle) in the Japanese version) is Xenologue 9 of Fire Emblem Awakening. This chapter takes place in the Outrealm: The Dragon's Gate.

Chrom faces off against 50 of Elibe, Magvel, and Tellius's elite warriors, led by the mightiest hero of them all: Ike. The enemies are all promoted and Level 3-10. The battle map is modeled after the Final Chapter: Light of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. After completion of the map, Lyn joins as a Level 8 Swordmaster and the player will receive an Iote's Shield.

This Xenologue is only available as DLC from the Nintendo eShop. It can be purchased separately for $2.50, or as part of the Smash Brethren DLC pack for $6.50 (which also includes Smash Brethren 1 and Smash Brethren 2).

This map has a difficulty of four stars.

Players start out in the middle of the map, similar to how players began in Light. However, the doors do not open at the beginning of the player's phase and they will have to deal with a Sniper, Trickster, Falcon Knight, 2 Swordmasters, and 3 Generals and Sages. Most of the enemies are easy to deal with, but Jaffar should be attacked from a fair distance as he is a level 9 Assassin who comes with the Lethality skill, and can cause an unnecessary causality if his skill activates.

Event Tiles

There are two event tiles in the mid-western and south-eastern rooms in the north-west and north-east corners respectively.
