Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones/Unused Playable Characters

From The Cutting Room Floor
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a sub-page of Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones features plenty of unused playable characters, be they leftover from Fire Emblem or unique characters.

Unused Units

Summon

Found at character slot 3C is a unit called "Summon" (サマン in Japanese), which appears to be a generic Summoner, despite the fact that there are no enemy Summoners in The Sacred Stones. This unit was present in the prototype, where they were deployed on the debug map. Its portrait is assigned as generic, which in this case would default to the Druid's class portrait, and it has no base stats.

Summonern

Found at character slot 3D is a unit called "Summonern" (サマナーン in Japanese), which appears to be a variant of the unused unit mentioned above. Their associated name string may have been a typo in Japanese that was carried over during localization. This unit was also present in the prototype, and could be found deployed on the debug map. Its portrait is assigned as generic, and as such uses the generic Druid portrait. It has no base stats, and shares its growth rates with Summoner, the only differences between the two being their base levels. The help text associated with them is the Summoner class help text.

Dara

Found at slot CA is unused unit data which lists Dara as a male Druid (despite there being an unused female Druid class), this slot using her portrait, name slot, and unused help description. She doesn't have any custom base stats, only growth rates.

Klimt

Found at slot C9 is unused unit data which lists Klimt as a male Bishop, this slot using his corresponding portrait, name slot, and unused help description. Like Dara, he only has growth rates, though he actually shares growth rates with Dara, so it's possible they were some sort of placeholder.

Messenger

The Frelian messenger Pegasus Knight that appears in a few cutscenes turns out to have a slot with data in it at unit slot CC, near Dara, Klimt, and other used NPCs. Once again, this slot shares its growth rates with Dara and Klimt, though it does actually have custom base stats, as well as an unused help description associated with it.

Unused Classes

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically:
  • The class at slot 76 seems to be a duplicate of the Queen class (uses the same name and help desc), but uses the unused "Princess" map sprite.
  • Slot 77 appears to be related to the light rune functionality (probably something to do with loading the map sprite that the light rune uses, as it kinda makes the unit turn into a light rune. They have 0 HP and die from taking no damage when attacked.)
  • Slot 78 is collapsed Nils from Fire Emblem. Has 25+5 Constitution.
  • Slot 7B is collapsed Lyon with mostly zeroes stat data. If a unit is made into this class they gain a +5 Constitution to their 25 Constitution.

Manakete

Found at class slot 0E is an extra Manakete class, the one used by Morva being at 3B and the one used by Myrrh being at 3C. This class uses the flying movement type and flying weaknesses, as well as the 'standard' walking sound effects, which are simple footsteps. If a character is modded to have this class then standing map sprite will be blank, though its selected and movement frames will be that of Morva's Manakete sprites. Its stats are mostly identical to Myrrh's Manakete class, though this class has more base Movement.

If a unit of this class attempts to use a Dragonstone the game loads Myrrh's human form before failing to transform and then softlocks. Using any monster weapons, including Wretched Air, defaults to map animations. It is assigned the otherwise unused Generic Manakete portrait, which is a leftover from The Binding Blade.

Female Wyvern Rider

Found at slot 20 is a class that appears to be a female Wyvern Rider. While The Sacred Stones makes it possible for there to be female Wyvern Knights, Female Wyvern Riders are nowhere to be found.

Bard

The Bard, which can be found at slot 46, uses the unused Bard sprite map sprites and the generic Brigand portrait. It lacks any associated battle animation, and in terms of stats and stat caps it is identical to its previous appearance in Fuuin no Tsurugi. It still has the Play skill assigned to it, but it doesn't have any associated Class changes.

Transporter

What appears to be Merlinus' Transporter class can be found at slot 79, its assigned class name and help description both blank slots and its assigned class portrait being the unused "?" silhouette. It uses the unused tent map sprite and has identical stats to the Fire Emblem Transporter. While it has the Supply convoy functionality associated with it, it can't actually be used as such due to Eirika / Ephraim having the convoy depending on route chosen. This class also does not have any associated Class changes.
