“The city of Thabes was once an advanced civilization. Somewhere within the walls of the temple at the city's heart, Gharnef was waiting, and now, it is up to Marth to wrest the Falchion from the fiend's grip.”
—Opening Narration

The Dark Pontifex is the third History Mode map of Fire Emblem Warriors after beating Chapter 15 of Story Mode. This map takes place in the city of Thabes.

TriviaEdit

  • Since this is a classic Fire Emblem map, sound effects from the first Fire Emblem game, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, take place of the default ones in Warriors.
  • Because this is a recreation of the original map, the lines from the original game are reused.
  • Lines are also taken from An Oasis of MagicA Knight-Filled Sky, and Manakete Princess, but Bantu and Gotoh's roles are given to Robin and Leo due to their absence in Warriors.
  • It is possible to clear this map without finding the apparatus. This also makes it the only History Mode chapter that can be completed without viewing all the non-xenologue conversations.
