Gold—a fiendish brilliance that tempts people. A theft occurs in the military base and Lissa's secret savings have been snatched by the Risen. Although reluctant, Chrom marches into the enemy base to recover Lissa's cash...”

The Golden Gaffe (Gold and Silver in the Japanese version) is Xenologue 13 of Fire Emblem Awakening. This chapter takes place in the Outrealms.

Chrom faces a legion of gold-carrying Risen who are only interested in escaping the map from the south. They will not attack Chrom's army but will retaliate when attacked.

The amount of gold each Risen carries ranges from 1,000 to 7,000 gold, which varies depending on the difficulty of the Risen. The skills they have will also vary, and are shown below:

Regardless of difficulty, all enemy units carry Pass. Players will only face Thieves, Barbarians, Dark Mages, Tricksters, Berserkers and Sorcerers in this Xenologue. All enemy units will leave the map by turn 7.

  • Vincent and Victor break the fourth wall at the end of this chapter by saying that they will retry the level, referring to this chapter.
  • This chapter is one of only three chapters where Chrom is not priority used on the team preparation screen, the other two being EXPonential Growth and Infinite Regalia.
