Top 50 Hottest Fire Emblem Girls

Jeremy enjoys gaming when not helping manage the college he graduated from.

Fire Emblem 7 Girls

Fire Emblem 7 Girls

Women in Fire Emblem

FE excels at portraying strong women, never delegating them to the sidelines of war. Some prefer to fight from range with arrows or magic, but many others join the frontlines with blades or lances.

Since pegasi only bond with women, only girls can become pegasus knights, a flying class with great mobility, and we've also seen several female protagonists—which most enthralled us? These are the 50 prettiest girls in Fire Emblem!

Clair FE

Clair FE

50. Clair

Game: Fire Emblem Gaiden

Whether you met her in Gaiden or its remake, Shadows of Valentia, Clair's a headstrong pegasus knight who knows what she wants in life and isn't afraid to take it. Like many characters in her class, Clair begins the game weak but has strong growth rates, rendering her a top-tier warrior when properly leveled.

Hilda FE

Hilda FE

49. Hilda

Game: Fire Emblem Three Houses

Hilda's a multi-faceted character as interesting as she is pretty. While lazy and spoiled, she's also perceptive, kind, and powerful—her strength and speed let her double-attack most foes and dish out massive damage.

Flora and Felicia FE

Flora and Felicia FE

48. Flora/Felicia

Game: Fire Emblem Fate

It was only a matter of time before we got maids, but thankfully, they're a fun and contrasting duo who remind me of the jailer twins from Persona 5. Flora's the older sister and a skilled servant; Felicia is warmer and gifted at fighting but can be clumsy.

Cherche FE

Cherche FE

47. Cherche

Game: Fire Emblem Awakening

Only women can ride pegasi, but some, like Cherche, prefer dragon-like wyvern mounts. Cherche's odd sense of fashion belies her warmth and unique charm, and her class's superior defenses effectively makes her a mobile tank.

Igrene FE

Igrene FE

46. Igrene

Game: Fire Emblem Awakening

If you married Igrene, you'd probably have the coolest father-in-law of all time (Hawkeye), but unlike her axe-wielding dad, Igrene favors ranged combat via bow and arrow. She's also a surprisingly complex character, facing religious struggles after the loss of husband and child.

Linde FE

Linde FE

45. Linde

Game: Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

Introduced in the franchise's very first game, Linde's also appeared in spin-offs like Heroes and Tokyo Mirage Sessions. Balancing her empathy for others with her pursuit of revenge, Linde's a powerful mage whose speed and luck help offset her weak defenses.

Elincia FE

Elincia FE

44. Elincia

Game: Fire Emblem Path of Radiance

Princess Elincia doesn't join Ike in battle until late in the game, but when she does, she provides a unique unit. Her pegasus gives her great mobility, her indestructible Amiti sword guarentees two hits (four with enough speed), and she can heal with staves.

However, she's severely underleveled and thus takes some work to bring up to standard. She also has an interesting relationship with Ike, progressing into near-romance throughout their first adventure but becoming more distant in Radiant Dawn.

Female Corrin FE

Female Corrin FE

43. Corrin

Game: Fire Emblem Fates

More-recent protagonists like Corrin let you select their gender, and many players will reccognize from her appearance in Super Smash Brothers. Regardless, she's an invaluable unit for her ability to support with any ally and her dragon transformation.

Female Byleth FE

Female Byleth FE

42. Byleth

Game: Fire Emblem Three Houses

Another versatile protagonist, Byleth's gender and class are up to you. She's a stoic warrior whose availability, flexibility, and ability to support every ally (except Anna) cement her usefulness.

Celica FE

Celica FE

41. Celica

Game: Fire Emblem Gaiden

One of the leading protagonists in the second game, Celica's the franchise's first female lord. She struggles to balance her personal relationships with her duties to her nation, but proves competent in both the plot and in battle—while frail like many mages, she's worth investing in thanks to her skill, speed, and luck.

Ilyana

Ilyana

40. Ilyana

Game: Fire Emblem Path of Radiance

Illyana's a shy mage who isn't particularly relevant to plot, but her voracious appetite leads to many comedic interactions. PoR offers several competitive mage choices, and Illyana's one of the better options thanks to her proficiency in thunder magic, generally more useful than fire and wind.

Nephenee FE

Nephenee FE

39. Nephenee

Game: Fire Emblem Path of Radiance

Nephenee's quiet demeanor and country upbringings belie her formidable power, though her class is locked into only using lances and doesn't have the mobility of mounted units.

Still, she can become deadly with proper training, and is easier to develop in Radiant Dawn thanks to her excellent availability.

Nowi FE

Nowi FE

38. Nowi

Game: Fire Emblem Awakening

Nowi looks and acts youthful, but is actually a Manakete (dragon-transformer) at least 1000 years old. Her unique class and incredible growths make her an excellent unit as long as you remember to keep up her supply of Dragonstone, the weapon needed to unleash her transformation.

Shade FE

Shade FE

37. Shade

Game: Fire Emblem 0 Cipher

Shade actually stems from the trading card game 0 Cipher, but also appears as a DLC character in Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. Either way, she's a calm mage gifted with healing magic, making her an excellent support unit whose unique aesthetic definitely catches the eye.

Louise FE

Louise FE

36. Louise

Game: Fire Emblem The Blazing Blade

Most games let you pair up compatible units, but sniper Louise joins your team with an already-established A-rank support with her husband, the sage Pent. Louise is only decent in battle, but the fact that she automatically empowers the godlike Pent (whose heart she captured with her sincerity and courage as much as her beauty) makes her worth using.

Micaiah FE

Micaiah FE

35. Micaiah

Game: Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn

Micaiah's the new protagonist of Path of Radiance's sequel, and the first lead since Celica to wield magic. While her stats are underwhelming for a lord, her unique tome, availability, and sacrifice skill (letting her forfeit HP to heal an ally) help compensate. For a good chunk of the story, her army clashes with former protagonist Ike's, leading to a different take on the classic good-vs-evil battles we often see, as both sides feature many likable leads.

Sigrun FE

Sigrun FE

34. Sigrun

Game: Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn

Upgraded from plot-only to playable character in Radiant Dawn, Sigrun's beauty, compassions, and surprisingly impressive growths help her stand out in a game full of useful flying units.

Eirika FE

Eirika FE

33. Eirika

Game: Fire Emblem The Sacred Stones

If not nearly as powerful a fighter as her brother Ephraim, Eirika's still one of the first female protagonists we encountered. She takes some dedication to bring up to par, but eventually pays off thanks to a strong promotion, mount, and holy weapon.

Her compassion and love for peace offset her brother's brashness, and her DLC appearance in Awakening gives her much-more appropriate combat attire (she's actually got armor now!).

Karla FE

Karla FE

32. Karla

Game: Fire Emblem The Blazing Blade

Like her brother Karel, Karla's a fierce swordsmaster, but she's pretty tricky to even recruit—she's not available until one of the game's last stages, and only in Hector mode when you bring Bartre (her eventual husband) to a certain arena.

Sadly, even then, she's hard to level and locked into one of the game's worst classes. So she's not amazing in gameplay terms, but it's hard to not admire her style and grace.

Naga FE

Naga FE

31. Naga

Game: Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

Present in multiple games throughout the franchise, Naga's a divine dragon goddess whose fang yielded Marth's infamous Falchion sword. While often distancing herself from humans, Naga's a benevolent and loving ruler available as a DLC character in Awakening. The similarly-named manakete Nagi is also said to be her reincarnation.

Natasha FE

Natasha FE

30. Natasha

Game: Fire Emblem The Sacred Stones

Humble, serene, and kind, Natasha represents her cleric class well, and in gameplay, she's its quintessential example, locked into healing staves before promotion, but gaining powerful magic attacks when upgraded. Her defense and HP are low, but formidable magic plus potent healing make her a useful unit nonetheless.

Caeda FE

Caeda FE

29. Caeda

Game: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

Prince Marth is well-known thanks to his appearances in Smash Bros, but his wife Caeda is far less-acclaimed, a shame since she's an excellent ruler. While something of a tomboy, she's also politically adept, intelligent, and charismatic. Not to mention amazing in battle; her skill, speed, and luck compensate for lower strength, and even that gets a nice boost when she promotes to wyvern rider.

Priscilla FE

Priscilla FE

28. Priscilla

Game: Fire Emblem The Blazing Blade

Priscilla's troubadour class generally offers better healers thanks to its mounted horse, providing better mobility and rescue potential, providing an excellent alternative to Serra.

Personality-wise, Priscilla is sweet if a bit pampered, and it takes a lot to win her heart; even some of her A-rank romance supports break up after the war, showing not every romance ends in bliss.

Tanith FE

Tanith FE

27. Tanith

Game: Fire Emblem Path of Radiance

Where Sigrun is warm compassion, Tanith is stern discipline, but she's a fine soldier and solid ally. Though she joins somewhat late, she holds her own next to even a leveled Marcia or Jill, especially with her unique reinforce skill, which calls in computer-controlled pegasus knights to assist you. They aren't especially strong, but unlike your party members, it's okay if they die and they'll distract enemies.

Sumia FE

Sumia FE

26. Sumia

Game: Fire Emblem Awakening

Like Florina before her, Sumia is the kind pegasus knight you recruit early into your game. She can be clumsy, but it only endears her to us more. Like many starting-game flyers, she's a bit weak but has great speed and luck, and you can buff her defenses by reclassing her into a knight.

Mathilda FE

Mathilda FE

25. Mathilda

Game: Fire Emblem Gaiden

Mathilda's a legendary knight as well known for her wit and leadership as her battle prowess. She's also the best cavalier in her game, wielding especially high skill, speed, luck, and resistance.

Titania FE

Titania FE

24. Titania

Game: Fire Emblem Path of Radiance

Deputy commander in the Greil mercenaries, Titania's a stern yet kind mother-like figure to the band, and she's the classic pre-promoted paladin unit. This isn't necessarily bad, as she'll demolish enemies early in the game, and with surprisingly solid growths (especially resistance), she remains useful throughout.

Anna FE

Anna FE

23. Anna

Game: Fire Emblem Awakening

Anna's a mysterious character appearing in every game except Gaiden, finally becoming playable in Awakening. Here, she reveals that "Anna" is an entire family of look-alikes who also act the same, creating an illusion of omnipresence. Either way, her roguish charm and rare items always make her a welcome sight.

Tana FE

Tana FE

22. Tana

Game: Fire Emblem The Sacred Stones

Similar to how Sumia fawns over Chrom, Tana deeply loves Prince Ephraim, following him headfirst into battle as a pegasus knight. But despite her crush, she's also strong and competent, with her earnest dedication winning over even grizzled warriors like Marisa. Tana's also the best flyer in her game, more durable than you'd expect thanks to impressive HP and luck.

Vika FE

Vika FE

21. Vika

Game: Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn

Laguz can transform into animals, with Vika taking the form of a raven, whose speed makes it easy for her to double-attack foes. Sadly, her terrible availability makes her tricky to properly level, but her unique class and status (she's the only shown female raven) still merits notice.

Tiki FE

Tiki FE

20. Tiki

Game: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

Daughter of Naga and princess to the Divine Dragon tribe, Tiki wields incredible abilities and longevity, appearing to both Marth and his ancestor Chrom with no visible aging. She's also a fierce fighter, with her divinestone proving effective against other dragons.

Lethe and Lyre FE

Lethe and Lyre FE

19. Lethe/Lyre

Game: Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn

Incredible stern to the point of intimidating practically everyone, Lethe's a cat laguz who transforms into a ferocious cougar-like warrior, first appearing in Path of Radiance. Her twin Lyre joins only in Radiant Dawn, and is far more sociable and friendly.

As much as guys like their cat girls, laguz can be tricky to use thanks to their reliance on transformations and lack of promotions, but they're still a fun concept to hopefully refine in future installments.

Cordelia FE

Cordelia FE

18. Cordelia

Game: Fire Emblem Awakening

Sumia's best friend and fellow pegasus knight is far more confident, renowned for both her beauty and skill. She pairs well with Chrom, but can also romance other men; either way, she ultimately mothers one of the game's most amusing warriors…

Severa

Severa

17. Severa

Game: Fire Emblem Awakening

After years of being compared to her mother's near-perfect talents, Severa develops an inferiority complex and harsh attitude, but it masks her compassion. It also leads to her amusing critiques, as she's not afraid to speak ill when she feels someone's earned it. Like other time-traveling allies, her stats and growths will depend on who you partner Cordelia with.

Aversa FE

Aversa FE

16. Aversa

Game: Fire Emblem Awakening

Cruel, manipulative, and vain, Aversa is brainwashed into employment for a corrupt cause, but ultimately sees the errors of her ways and begins atonement. She's also a fierce foe thanks to her higher magic caps compared to other aerial units, making her a formidable dark flier.

Azura FE

Azura FE

15. Azura

Game: Fire Emblem Fates

Deuteragonist in Fates, Azura is stoic and blunt, but good at heart. She utilizes the unique songstress class, similar to past dancers (she can let an ally take two turns instead of just one), but she can also fight (albeit poorly) with lances if attacked.

Lucia FE

Lucia FE

14. Lucia

Game: Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn

In both the Radiant games, Lucia's a prepromoted swordsmaster who generally isn't as good as leveled mercenaries, but if you've ignored them or they've died, her decent growths make her an acceptable substitute. A close friend of Elincia's, Lucia's compassion and maturity make her an invaluable protector and advisor to the queen.

Palla FE

Palla FE

13. Palla

Game: Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

Easygoing yet stubborn, Palla's looks after her sisters, who share her pegasus training. Palla's rather slow for her generally-mobile class, but somewhat compensates with higher power; either way, she's a welcome addition to any team.

Mia FE

Mia FE

12. Mia

Game: Fire Emblem Path of Radiance

Spunky and carefree, Mia joins the Greil mercenaries in PoR, but her poor base strength and only moderate growth make her a tough recommendation compared to Ike and Zihark. Thankfully, the plucky warrior fares far better in Radiant Dawn, where her higher bases and great availability make her the best overall swordsmaster.

Heather FE

Heather FE

11. Heather

Game: Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn

Like many rogues, Heather is fueled by her desire for gold, but is also willing to fight for a cause she believes in. She's definitely a utility character for stealing items and dodging attacks instead of offense, but still proves useful. She's also one of the first gay characters in the series, with several hints at her attraction to women.

Lucina FE

Lucina FE

10. Lucina

Game: Fire Emblem Awakening

Infamous for both her importance in Awakening and debut in Smash Bros, Lucina's probably the most recognized woman in all of Fire Emblem. Pragmatic yet kind, Lucina will travel through time itself to correct the future.

She's also incredible in battle, with impressive growths bolstered by her unbreakable weapon (Parallel Falchion), which can be used to heal 20 HP, plus her formidable aether skill.

Marisa FE

Marisa FE

9. Marisa

Game: Fire Emblem The Sacred Stones

Marisa was trained as a warrior from birth, leading to an antisocial demeanor that masks a yearning to fit in. Although Joshua often ends up being the superior swordsmaster and Marisa joins later, Sacred Stones offers unlimited wild encounters, so it's more than possible to train underleveled characters.

Olivia FE

Olivia FE

8. Olivia

Game: Fire Emblem Awakening

Despite her dancing profession, Olivia's a shy and insecure individual, similar to Sumia. Still, she gets along well with members of Chrom's bands, and Awakening's ability to pair up units gives her a nice way to tuck herself under a better-protected unit when necessary.

Triandra FE

Triandra FE

7. Triandra

Game: Fire Emblem Heroes

Dark elf Triandra joins with several special abilities and surprisingly strong offense. She can also dance to refresh foes and weaken nearby enemies, giving a surprisingly versatile battle niche.

Plumeria FE

Plumeria FE

6. Plumeria

Game: Fire Emblem Awakening

While Plumeria's offensive capabilities are limited, she's a decent support unit. More than that, she wields interesting powers over desire, able to manipulate dreams and the longing to love and be loved.

Lyndis FE

Lyndis FE

5. Lyndis

Game: Fire Emblem The Blazing Blade

To fans like myself who accessed the first game brought overseas, Lyndis was our very first ally and protagonist, making her a fond and well-known figure. Though she shares her protagonist role with Eliwood and Hector, and her low strength limits her usefulness, her speed and eventual bow (upon promotion) help.

Catria FE

Catria FE

4. Catria

Game: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

Often having to ease the tension between her arguing sisters, Catria is surprisingly mature given her youthful appearance. She's also an amazing fighter with fantastic growth rates, with her only issue being late recruitment.

Tharja and Rhajat FE

Tharja and Rhajat FE

3. Tharja/Rhajat

Game: Fire Emblem Awakening/Fates

Dark mage Tharja's quirky stalker-like tendencies and overall strangeness proved so popular that Nintendo gave her a copy, Rhajat (an anagram of Tharja) in Fates. Hard not to love such a unique ally, and she's also helpful in battle; while her accuracy is low, her physical defense lets her tank hits better than most mages.

Ninian FE

Ninian FE

2. Ninian

Game: Fire Emblem The Blazing Blade

The series's odd obsession with shy dancers continues. While unobtrusive and self-doubting, Ninian's also calm, brave, and provides the unique ability to let an ally act again in a round. Ninian and her brother Nils are both half-dragon, meaning if she weds Eliwood, Roy carries some dragon blood as well.

Fiora FE

Fiora FE

1. Fiora

Game: Fire Emblem The Blazing Blade

Florina's shyness and Farina's mercenaryism have their charms, but Fiora's dedication, bravery, and looks make her the standout pegasus knight. She's also better fortified in battle than Florina and much easier to enlist than Farina, making her the preferred flyer.

Female Villains in Fire Emblem

We've seen many of the franchise's prettiest heroines, but several villains also deserve mention, like the nefarious Sonia, Petrine, and Limstella. It's nice to see a war series where women have always played a prominent role (and aren't just delegated to support), but for now, as we await more Nintendo's next batch of captivating warriors, vote for your favorite and I'll see you at our next Fire Emblem countdown!
