Fire Emblem Engage Emblems guide: All Emblem Weapon & Skill Unlocks

The defining aspect of Fire Emblem Engage is the inclusion of heroes from the series' past in the form of Emblems. By equipping each hero's unique Emblem Ring to a party member, you are able to utilize this games namesake feature, the Engage system, to merge the character and emblem hero together.

This is a nice bit of fan service to let you meet and interact with classic Fire Emblem characters, but doing so also grants huge buffs, skills, weapons, and abilities that each emblem hero imparts to your characters in combat. The purpose of this guide is to list every Emblem in the game, plus other key information about their skills, weapons, and abilities.

Fire Emblem Engage: All Emblems & Their Skill Unlocks

Each of the Emblems in Fire Emblem Engage brings unique skills and unlocks, all of which massively improve your combat abilities.

Once you unlock an Emblem, you can equip their Emblem Ring to a character of your choice and make use of them in battle. The more you engage with an emblem on a given character, the higher their bond will be, granting additional perks as their connection grows deeper. 

If you are looking to speed up the bonding process, once it is unlocked, you can go to the Arena, and by spending Bond Fragments, you can instantly have a character gain levels with various emblems!

Each emblem hero has a special paralogue level corresponding to a map from their respective games. In order to reach the highest support levels for the emblems, you will need to unlock and complete each of these to unlock their full potential. That full potential features all of the skills listed below.

Here's all of the Emblems in full:

Emblem Marth

The first lord of Fire Emblem, MArth is a jack of all trades, and can help greatly in the thick of the action for Melee combat.

It’s only appropriate that the first Emblem hero that you get in Engage would be the first lord and hero of the entire series, Marth himself. Marth is a great option for any character your plan on being used a lot and in melee combat with enemies thanks to his Rapier weapon that can pierce thick armor and sword that doubles the amount of experience gained!

Emblem Eirika

From The Sacred Stones comes Erika, a jack of all trades that's a little less useful than you might first think.

Eirika (and her twin brother Ephriam) are an all-around option that doesn't really excel in a specific area. With some skills that help with dodging attacks and dealing some additional damage to enemies with high defense, it can be a nice option to have in maps with many armored enemies. In general, though, one of the weaker options to take with you.

Emblem Ike

Representing both Path of Radiance and to an extent Radiant Dawn, Ike brings his tremendous tanky strength to Fire Emblem Engage.

Sometimes you just need a brick wall that can take a lot of punishment, and in those situations Ike will be your emblem of choice. Defense and keeping his paired character alive is what he does best. With his large swath of defending boosting skills and with skills that make him strong, the more damage he takes means Ike can dish out the pain too. Throw Ike and his partner in the way of an advancing army, and they won't be moving passed. We like Ike.

Emblem Micaiah

The Emblem of Dawn is Micaiah, who also happens to be the most healing and support-focused Emblem in the game.

Fun fact, armies need to be alive if they are to win wars. Micaiah, is your key to make sure that happens. With perhaps the most overpowered special skill in the game, Micaiah's map-wide Great Sacrifice healing every friendly unit can easily turn the tide of any encounter you may find yourself struggling in. As an added bonus, the character that uses Great Sacrifice will receive experience for each unit that is healed, regardless of how much a unit is healed for, making Micaiah a wonderful option to grind those lower-level characters fast, like Jean!
