An elite Hoshidan warrior trained in katana, clubs, and shuriken.
|Katana/Swords, Clubs/Axes, Shuriken/Daggers|
|Even Keel||During even-numbered turns, user takes -4 points of magical damage|
|Iron Will||If the enemy initiates battle, user takes -4 points of magical damage|
|Clarity||User recovers from status debuffs twice as fast|
|Aggressor||When user initiates battle, +7 points of damage dealt|
Everything about the Dread Fighter is totally geared towards crushing all magical opposition. Even Keel and Iron Will can combine together to make a unit all but impervious to magic, and Aggressor can stack with the “-faire” skills for free +12 damage to everyone (so long as they initiate the battle), which is simply mindblowing. The Dread Fighter also has use of shurikens and daggers, one of the best weapon types in the game for debuffing enemies, to hit from afar.
Overall, the Dread Fighter is an extremely solid unit. Acquire Dread Fighter seals by completing Royal Royale using a Hoshidan royal sibling. You also get two for free if you have all three game paths of Fire Emblem: Fates .
