The Warrior (ウォーリア Uōria) is a male only combat physical class that recurrently appears across the Fire Emblem Series, beginning from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. The promoted form of the Fighter class, the Warrior class commonly wields Axes and Bows as its weapons of choice.

History in the SeriesEdit

In its original inception in Genealogy of the Holy War, the Warrior class is established as the staple promoted form of the Axe Fighter class, alongside the ability to wield Bows as its secondary weapon of choice.

In Thracia 776, Marty, a character who is a Brigand by default, promotes into this class instead of the expected Berserker class from later titles. Axe Fighters appearing in this installment promote into Mercenaries instead.

In TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga, Warriors are again a promotion of the fighter class. They cannot use bows, and specialize in axes. Unlike other games, this incarnation of Warriors has very high speed and skill stats in addition to strength and HP.

After Thracia 776, Warriors remained a promotion of Fighter. However in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, Pirates could optionally promote to Warrior as part of the branch promotion system, as could Brigands through exploring the game data.

The lone playable fighter in TearRing Saga: Berwick Saga promotes to Slayer, while Warriors are a powerful enemy only variant of the Fighter that specialize in Axes alone.

In Radiant Dawn, the Warrior (勇士ウォーリア Uōria) class is unable to wield standard Bows, arming Crossbows in their stead. The class is further able to promote into the formidable Reaver class when the necessary requirements are met.

In Fates, the Warrior class is absent, and its role as the promoted form of the Fighter class is taken up by the Berserker class instead. The Warrior class is instead replaced by the Oni Chieftain class.

In the spin-off title Fire Emblem Warriors, the class appears as an enemy-only unit that only uses Axes. The class is a half-clone of the War Cleric class.



Warriors, like Fighters, are characterised by high HP and Strength with rather modest Speed, while having decent Skill and Defense. However, they also have quite low Resistance. Their middling Speed and Skill make them easy targets for swordsmen who are generally faster and more accurate than Warriors, as well as magic-users such as Sages or Bishops, who tend to be fairly proficient at evasion and can deal a lot of magical damage.

Warriors are, however, immensely useful in taking down defensive units such as Generals and Paladins. Unlike Fighters and Berserkers, Warriors are not locked into the axe-only Weapon Triangle position. Their ability to wield Bows makes them capable of attacking any foe without running the risk of triggering any Weapon Triangle penalties. Warriors using bows play slightly differently from Snipers or other bow users, since they generally have higher Might and lower Speed. Since Warriors can only use Bows after promotion, they usually are unable to exploit strong bows initially, and some investment in their training is therefore required. This is true in every game except Radiant Dawn, where Warriors can only wield Crossbow weapons, which deal fixed damage, as well as in TearRing Saga and Berwick Saga. Alternatively, the Warrior could be outfitted with a Tomahawk instead of a Bow, as this weapon has a range of 1-2. Using this weapon does, however, come at the cost of being weak against Swords.

In TearRing Saga Warriors are akin to axe using Swordmasters with higher strength and HP stats in exchange for slightly less skill.

In WiFi battles, Warriors are not very good units to deploy. While their Defense is unusually high, their meager Speed means that they will still be defeated in melee combat by all high-Speed units. Berserkers in particular pose the biggest threat to them, as they are not just strong, but are swift enough to perform double attacks. The low Speed Warriors of Warriors further dampens their case, as this means that they are not able to double attack any promoted unit, including Generals.

Notable WarriorsEdit


Genealogy of the Holy WarEdit

Thracia 776Edit

The Binding BladeEdit

The Blazing BladeEdit

The Sacred StonesEdit

Path of RadianceEdit

Radiant DawnEdit

Shadow DragonEdit

  • Ymir - A Warrior from the frontier lands of Grust. During the War of Darkness, he protected a group of Grustian villagers who treated him well.
  • Promotion for: Bord, Cord and Barst.

New Mystery of the EmblemEdit


  • Basilio - West-Khan of Ferox.
  • Nombry - Leader of a group of bandits who attempts to seek out the mirage village of legend.
  • Tigris - One of the Twelve Deadlords.
  • Possible promotion for: Vaike.


  • It is worth noting that the uniforms worn by the Warriors in the Jugdral Series and Awakening are reminiscent of the armor donned by Roman gladiators.
  • The Warrior class's description in Awakening claims that it has "peerless strength". In actuality, their Strength cap is surpassed by both Berserkers and Generals by a mere two points. This could be in comparison to other classes, where their power is nearly unmatched.
