This cactus is UNDER CONSTRUCTION
This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a series of firsts for the Fire Emblem series: the first in HD, the first on a console since 2007's Radiant Dawn, and the first not mainly developed by Intelligent Systems — Koei Tecmo handled most of the development, and the game runs off the same engine as Fire Emblem Warriors. New features include multiple canon endings (sorry, Fates), battalions (so it's not just your merry band of teenagers against the world on the battlefield), a universal class tree for all units, and a central hub to explore before each chapter.

It also tells the story of the worst high school reunion in history.

Note that this page has unmarked spoilers for some in-game story events and character reveals.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Provide footage for all unused scenarios with scrapped dialogue and voices (if possible).
  • Document items, abilities, etc. outside of just text strings.
  • Document the in-game calendar data.
  • Document support and script changes between the Japanese and International script.

Unused Difficulty Mode

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Provide more images from Infernal difficulty and specify what other differences it has.

FETH Infernal Difficulty.png

Besides Maddening difficulty, which was finished and added to the game in version 1.0.2, there is an unused fourth difficulty setting called Infernal. Hacking the game to access said difficulty reveals most enemies feature absurdly sky-high levels to the point of most of them reaching their stat caps around the midgame. It is also fairly unbalanced and unfinished for the most part, with many chapters lacking the necessary script to set the ending flags.

Unused and Unseen Characters

Playable Jeralt, Rhea and Sothis

Jeralt, Rhea and Sothis - who only appear in the game as NPCs - have a complete set of voice clips, growths and stat caps specifically for playable units, with the first two having a spell learnset, set skill levels/proficiencies and even some data - mostly voice clips - for Tea Party. In Rhea's case, her Tea Party data was finalized and the option to invite her was added with the Wave 4 DLC through a new Quest.

Unused Battle Clips

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Provide the missing JP lines/voice clips.

While some of Jeralt's and Rhea's battle clips can be heard in-game in their appearances as allied units, they do also have playable-unit-specific lines that go unused in the final game. Sothis's battle lines, on the other hand, all go completely unused, except for her normal battle grunts that can be heard when she casts Sothis Shield on Byleth.

Cleobulus

Data for an unused member of "those who slither in the dark" called Cleobulus (Japanese: クレオブロス Cleobulus) can be found near minor Agarthan NPCs like Myson, Bias, Chilon and Pittacus. They're set to use the Warlock class and have Agarthan Technology as their personal ability like other members. As the latter characters are all fought in Chapter 20/21 of the Silver Snow/Verdant Wind routes, this suggests Cleobulus was likely meant to serve a similar purpose as well.

(Source: DeathChaos (tweet), fedatamine [7])

Mystery DLC Girl

The Wave 3 DLC (version 1.1.0) added a new character which was never finalized. Checking the game's data reveals said character is a 17 year old girl with the Commoner class, her birthday is on January 1, her base stats and growths are exactly the same as Ferdinand's, and she's set to call out voice clips absent in the game. Curiously, some of her data changed during updates; in version 1.1.0, she was affiliated with the Adrestian Empire and had a Minor Crest of Cichol; in version 1.2.0, however, her affiliation changed to the Church of Seiros and her Crest changed into a Major Crest of Flames.


(Source: DeathChaos (tweet))

Stable Hand, Trader, and Certification Proctor

These unused NPCs would presumably have been interacted with in the monastery to use the scrapped horse raising and trading features and to take certification exams (as described in the cut quest Try Certification Exams), respectively. Their character IDs are found near those of the used NPCs who are similarly in charge of used monastery features, such as the Choir Coordinator and Tournament Organizer. Perhaps unsurprisingly, leftover unit data indicates that the Stable Hand would've been placed at the Stables, the Trader at the Marketplace, and the Certification Proctor outside of the Officers Academy classrooms.

(Source: fedatamine [8], [9], [10])

Count Galatea

Ingrid's father, Count Galatea, has a character slot with no other data assigned to it besides the name. Technically, he isn't entirely unused, as during the scene in Byleth and Ingrid's B support where they read a letter from him, the event script that handles showing the letter's contents calls his character ID with one of its parameters, but as this parameter has no visible effect in gameplay, his nametag is never seen by the player.

Leftover Names

In the latter half of the unit name strings - after the character names, but before the generic occupation/class names for monastery NPCs and cutscene-exclusive characters - there is a sizable batch of completely unused names.

Unused Items

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Are they fully functional? Does Tomas's Staff's model work correctly when wielded by Tomas or Solon? Do the unused meals have item icons?

There are multiple items in the game's data that cannot be seen during normal gameplay.

Is ns01 sword relic.png 闇剣ブルトガング Dark Blutgang Sword: E 13 7 80 0 1 20 (TBA) 遺産“ブルトガング”を模した剣
古の技術で作られた剣
A sword created using ancient technology,
modeled after the Relic Blutgang.
Similar to the Relic replicas used by enemies in Verdant Wind's last chapter, a Dark Blutgang can be found in the game's code.
It's set to use the same model as the real Blutgang, though without its glowing effect (typical for the replica Relics), and to deal damage based on the Magic stat.
Is ns01 sword black.png リディル Ridill Sword: C 11 11 80 0 1-2 50 (TBA) 魔法武器
祭司タレスの武器
This magical sword is the preferred weapon of
Priest Thales.
Meant to be Thales's signature weapon. Deals damage based on the Magic stat.
Has a unique model, and uses a trailing purple graphics effect when attacking. Can be repaired using Agarthium, like other weapons associated with Agartha.
Is ns01 crest stone.png 鋭利な翼 Sharp Wings -- 9 1 90 5 1 -- (TBA) 巨鳥の鋭利な両翼 The blade-like wings of a giant bird. A monster weapon likely meant for the Giant Bird class.

Prior Fire Emblem games that featured fog of war had both a consumable torch item and a magic staff to clear the fog; this spell would have been the Three Houses white magic counterpart for the latter. Likely unused for being too situational.

Unused Crests

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Can the Crests of Chevalier and Flames activate on Staggering Blows as well (like how the Crest of Seiros can) when hacked onto a monster unit?

There are two unused crests with no assigned icons in the game's code.

Additionally, all of the crests that only appear in their Major forms in the final game have fully-functional Minor versions leftover in the code as well.

Unused Battalions

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.

Unused Gambit

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.

Specifically: Does the gambit retain any functionality?

There is only one Gambit which is never deployed for any kind of battalion, whether they're available for the player or are enemy-exclusive.

Unused Graphics

Unused Class Sprites

Several characters (Hubert, Ferdinand, Ashe, Raphael, Lysithea, Leonie and Hanneman) have sets of personalized class sprites for their playable appeareance in Part II with specific Master/Advanced classes. They're left unused in the finished game as they use generic class bodies instead.

Ma ns01 commoner jeralt playable.gif Ma ns01 paladin jeralt playable.gif

Jeralt has class sprites depicting him as a playable Commoner and Paladin despite only appearing as an NPC unit.

Used Unused
Ma ns01 great lord enemy.gif Ma ns01 great lord dimitri unused enemy.gif

Dimitri's Part II class sprites always depict him with an eyepatch, even in the Crimson Flower route where he retains both of his eyes for story related reasons. In spite of this, there's an unused sprite meant for said route which displays him with both eyes.

Used Unused
Ma ns01 archbishop enemy.gif Ma ns01 saint unused enemy.gif

Likewise, Rhea has unique sprites for the Saint class she uses for Crimson Flower. In the final product, the Archbishop class's sprite is reused instead.

Ma ns01 dancer male other.gif Ma ns01 dancer female other.gif

Class sprites for generic NPCs with the Dancer class can be found among the other sprites. Interestingly, only the female dancer happens to have portrait graphics to match within the game's files.

Ma ns01 trickster female enemy.gif Ma ns01 war monk enemy.gif Ma ns01 war cleric enemy.gif Ma ns01 dark flier enemy.gif

The Wave 4 DLC added sprites for generic NPCs using the Trickster, War Monk, War Cleric, Valkyrie and Dark Flier Classes. As only male Tricksters and Valkyries are used in-game by purchasing the DLC Pass, the sprites meant for the female Trickster, War Monk, War Cleric and Dark Flier NPCs are end up never used.

Unused Icons

Is ns01 battalion infantry black.png Is ns01 battalion cavalry black.png Is ns01 battalion flying black.png Is ns01 battalion armored black.png

Multiple battalion icons are left unused in the finished game as no battalions ever use them.

Is ns01 axe black.png Is ns01 brawling silver.png Is ns01 shield black.png Is ns01 gem silver.png

Several icon variants for weapon and equipment exist in the game which are left unused in the game proper.

Is ns01 white magic relic.png Is ns01 black magic silver.png Is ns01 dark magic black.png

Gold, silver and black icons for white, black and dark magic spells exist in the game even though none of them are used.

Is ns01 weakness black magic.png Is ns01 weakness brawling.png Is ns01 weakness dark magic.png Is ns01 weakness white magic.png

Icons denoting monsters' weaknesses also exist for brawling, white magic, black magic and dark magic spells despite none of them being used.

Is ns01 unknown skill 1.png Is ns01 unknown skill 2.png Is ns01 unknown skill 3.png

Three icons meant for unknown abilities can be found among other sprites.

Is ns01 unknown item 1.png Is ns01 unknown item 2.png

Two icons meant for unused item type(s).

FE16CameraButton.png

A camera icon is located among the sprites displayed during battle animations.

FETH Break unused.png

This icon is stored with, and formatted similarly to, attack labels such as "MISS" and "CRITICAL" displayed during battle animations. Perhaps it was meant to be used for hits that break a monster's barrier?

FETH Miklan's thieves flag.png

Amidst the icons used to display an unit's affiliation, the flag used by Miklan's Thieves seen in Chapter 5's map and ensuing cutscene is left unused.

FE16BattalionEndurance4.png FE16BattalionEndurance5.png
FE16BattalionEndurance4glowoverlay.png FE16BattalionEndurance5glowoverlay.png

Even though battalion endurance has a maximum level of 3 in the final game, sprites meant to denote a fourth and fifth level exist in the graphics files.

FETH Greenhouse Upkeep unused.png FETH Food Procurement unused.png FETH Fishing Pond Management unused.png

Icons for three of the scrapped Group Tasks can still be found among the game's files.

FETH Chance Time unused.png FETH Bonus unused.png

Two icons of unknown purpose, found among files related to monastery UI elements.

FETH Infernal option.png

This bright red icon meant to be used when choosing the scrapped Infernal difficulty still lies with the rest of the title screen UI elements.

Unused Portraits

Portrait placeholder fe16.png Small portrait placeholder fe16.png

A placeholder character portrait that, as with many previous Fire Emblem games, depicts a silhouetted figure. Interestingly, the small version is actually used in the game; if you move your cursor near an activated Viskam turret in Zoom View, it will have a portrait pop-up in the same style as regular units that uses this portrait.

Small portrait dedue 02 fe16 unused.png

A portrait for Dedue sporting a livid expression during the game's War Phase. In the final release, the character in question can display such emotion only once during the Academy Phase.

Small portrait dimitri cf 05 fe16 unused.png

The portrait set for Dimitri's unique appearance in the Crimson Flower route includes one with a blushing expression, which he never has in that route.

Small portrait jeralt 06 fe16 unused.png Small portrait kronya 04 fe16 unused.png Small portrait kostas 02 fe16 unused.png Small portrait lonato 02 fe16 unused.png Small portrait miklan 02 fe16 unused.png Small portrait miklan 04 fe16 unused.png Small portrait jeritza masked 02 fe16 unused.png Small portrait monica 03 fe16 unused.png Small portrait monica 05 fe16 unused.png Small portrait tomas 04 fe16 unused.png Small portrait nemesis 02 fe16 unused.png Small portrait rhea seiros 02 fe16 unused.png Small portrait rhea seiros 05 fe16 unused.png Small portrait dimitri child 02 fe16 unused.png Small portrait dimitri child 04 fe16 unused.png Small portrait dimitri child 05 fe16 unused.png Small portrait edelgard child 02 fe16 unused.png Small portrait edelgard child 05 fe16 unused.png Small portrait duke aegir 02 fe16 unused.png Small portrait fleche 06 fe16 unused.png Small portrait lambert 02 fe16 unused.png Small portrait lambert 03 fe16 unused.png Small portrait lambert 04 fe16 unused.png Small portrait ladislava 05 fe16 unused.png

Many of the named NPCs and enemies also have portraits for various expressions that go unused.

Generic small portrait trickster female fe16.png Generic small portrait war monk fe16.png Generic small portrait war cleric fe16.png

Similar to the class sprite situation, portraits meant for generic NPCs with the female Trickster, War Monk and War Cleric Classes are left unused.

Unused S-Rank Support Images

Seteth Flayn Catherine Cyril
Cg fe16 seteth s support 2.png Cg fe16 flayn s support 2.png Cg fe16 catherine s support 2.png Cg fe16 cyril s support 2.png

At the end of the Crimson Flower route, Byleth loses their connection to Sothis, and their hair returns to their normal blue hue. This is reflected in the S-Rank support illustrations seen in the game's ending, which come in both blue-haired (for Crimson Flower) and green-haired variants (for the other three routes) appropriate to the availability of each character in the appropriate routes. However, blue-haired variants exist for four characters who are unavailable in Crimson Flower: Seteth, Flayn, Catherine and Cyril.

Unused Part II Murals

Horsebow Moon (Part II) Wyvern Moon (Part II) Red Wolf Moon (Part II) Alternate Ethereal Moon (Part II)
Cg fe16 unused mural 1.png Cg fe16 unused mural 2.png Cg fe16 unused mural 3.png Cg fe16 unused mural 4.png

Graphic files depicting the Horsebow, Wyvern, Red Wolf and Ethereal Moon murals can be found in spite of the first three months never being visited in any route during Part 2 and the last using completely new graphics for its brief appearance in the second half of the game.

Placeholder Cutscene Images

FE3H Sothis Cutscene Placeholder.png

This is a placeholder variant of the cutscene illustration depicting Zanado from Chapter 2. In the placeholder, Sothis is standing atop the building; in the final version, she is replaced with a nondescript white statue.

3559 068.png

This small placeholder image meant for displaying small objects/shots in cutscenes is repeated multiple times in the game's files.

Unused Voice Clips

Academy Phase Death Screams

Death screams for Byleth and every student during the Academy Phase exist in the game, but are left unused as the game is hardcoded so that none of those units can die during Part I. Interestingly, even though male Byleth's English VA, Chris Niosi, was replaced with Zach Aguilar in version 1.0.2, Byleth will still use the former's death scream should the game be hacked to restore this function.

Hmmm...

Ashen Wolves English Death Screams

Due to an oversight, and in spite of the characters having different death screams recorded for each dub, Yuri, Balthus, Constance and Hapi will always use the Japanese death screams should they die during the War Phase, regardless of whether or not the game's dub is set to English.

Unused NPC Death Screams

All major NPCs have death screams, but due to plot reasons, a few of them have their screams unheard in the game without hacking.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Provide the JP screams.

Unused Maps

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Are there more unused maps beyond these two?

War at Gronder & Taking Fort Merceus Variations

Hmmm...
To do:
Provide footage of the unused maps in question.

There exist unused variations for the story maps War at Gronder and Taking Fort Merceus, which were meant to serve as a Chapter 17 and 18 respectively according to remaining leftover text. Both maps also have the same beginning logs seen in their used variations, with the Fort Merceus map sharing its description with the Silver Snow and Verdant Wind variants of the mission.

The spawn data for the Gronder Field map is 118 and for its script is 119, while for Fort Merceus they're 120 and 121 respectively. Both maps have the same exact spawn data, which consists of a few generic NPCs in the Black Eagles route's version of the mission. Meanwhile, the data for the Blue Lions and Golden Deer paths is completely empty beyond the basic script used for loading up the map.

Interestingly, these are the only maps in which Female Byleth is specifically called by the Spawn Data; all other maps call Male Byleth by default, and the game's code accounts for the female option if it was chosen instead.

Unused Classes

King of Beasts, King of Fangs and King of Wings

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Are they programmed in any form? Do they use unique assets beyond these descriptions?

In the text strings for class names and descriptions, along with the various other monster classes at the very end of the list (save for DLC and placeholder slots), there are entries listed for three unused monster classes: King of Beasts (Japanese: 獣の王 King of Beasts), King of Fangs (Japanese: 牙の王 King of Fangs), and King of Wings (Japanese: 翼の王 King of Wings). Given that in auxiliary maps containing a red exclamation icon, it's possible to find a specific Wild Demonic Beast, Giant Wolf or Giant Bird bearing these names respectively, it's possible these classes may have been planned to be used by said units instead.

While it is currently unknown if the classes are programmed in any form, descriptions for them can still be found in the text strings.

Icon Name (JP) Name (EN) Description (JP) Description (EN)

King of birds. Among the birds who have grown to unnatural size by absorbing magic, this one has particularly strong magic power.

Oddities

Enemy Death Knight

Unlike every other enemy-only class, the enemy Death Knight can teach its users an ability once mastered: Heartseeker. This functionality goes unused as Jeritza, who became playable in the version 1.1.0 update, uses a unique playable version of the class—added with said update—which teaches the ability Counterattack instead.

Jeritza (Part I)

Hmmm...
To do:
Check if the masked Jeritza (ID 49) has set growths and stat caps, plus if any other data of his changed between updates.

The masked Jeritza encountered in Part I is never actually used in battle; he either assumes the "Death Knight" persona as an NPC in battle with full body armor, or joins the party maskless in the Crimson Flower route (version 1.1.0 onwards), and all three variations of him are internally considered their own separate character.

Curiously, this first Jeritza has far more data than one would expect, especially in the last builds of the game. For one, he has a Minor Crest of Lamine and a set value for his internal height, both of which match with his playable counterpart. And second, in spite of having no voiceclips for battle assigned at launch, the version 1.1.0 update assigned him the ones used by his playable self despite this variation of the character never getting the chance to use them in any form.

Byleth Orders to Spare/Kill?

In situations where the game offers the option of killing or sparing/persuading some characters, there also exist unused text in which Byleth orders the army through in-game dialogue to follow the picked choice. Their scrapped dialogue is the most complete structure-wise when deciding Claude's fate in the Crimson Flower route, as Byleth is set to say "We must kill him" or "We must let him go" depending on the prompt chosen. Meanwhile, in the case of Ashe, Lorenz and Lysithea, Byleth simply repeats the text used by the choice prompt in their dialogue box instead.

More defecting Black Eagles in Silver Snow?

In the Silver Snow route, if any of the Black Eagle students were defeated during Part 1 while playing in Classic Mode, Edelgard in Chapter 13 will mention some of her former classmates have joined her side. Moreover, the presence of an unused variation for Silver Snow's story event "The Death Knight" in which Caspar and Linhardt appear on the Empire's side if they're unrecruited suggests the Black Eagles were planned to defect had they fallen pre-timeskip. In spite of this, the game considers the units in question dead rather than unrecruited and their ending cards will even contradict Edelgard's claim, meaning none of the characters get to return and replace their generic enemy Imperial General counterparts.

Linked Attacks

In the game's code, Bernadetta and Dorothea are set to receive Linked Attack bonuses when paired up with Marianne and Hilda respectively. As these can only be gained when the characters in question have existing support chains with each other, which the pairs in question lack, these bonuses ultimately go unused.

Verdant Wind's Chapter 14 Icon

Vw chapter 14.png

Chapter 14 has a different icon in every route when the save file is seen through the file select screen, which shows a glimpse of the location where the chapter's main battle takes place (or one that's at least connected to it). Curiously, Verdant Wind's icon for Chapter 14 displays an unrelated location which is never visited through that route's main story: Tailtean Plains.

Viskam

The turret Viskam is an amalgam of three diferent elements: an invisible enemy with 100 HP, 5 Mag and 0 move; a solid ballista used by said enemy; and an E-rank Viskam sword also wielded by the hidden entity. Because of this, it's possible through hacking to obtain said weapon and have any playable character wield it without issues, as well as to put it up for sale through the online Travelers feature, making it available for purchase to even non-hacking players.

Icon Name (JP) Name (EN) Level Mt Wt Hit Crit Rng Uses Worth Description text (JP) Description text (EN) Notes
Is ns01 sword.png ヴィスカム Viskam Sword: E 20 5 100 0 1-9 -- 1g 革の盾 Leather Shield Deals damage based on the Magic stat. Its assigned model (that of the Iron Sword), weapon type, and weight are likely carryovers from the placeholder slots surrounding it, as it's much further down in the list of weapons than all other non-placeholder ones.
This placement is also the likely cause of its odd description text—the game seems to assign descriptions by checking a certain number of strings down the list from the item's name string, but since there are more strings assigned for weapon names then there are for weapon descriptions, performing this operation on the Viskam's name string brings the result all the way past the end of the weapon descriptions and into the space immediately after it, which happens to contain name strings for equippable items like the Leather Shield.

Unused Recruitment Requirements

All of the DLC characters save Jeritza have unused code for recruitment that would function like it does for other student characters, with Byleth needing to meet particular stat and skill rank thresholds to persuade them to join. In the final game, the Ashen Wolves' availability is solely dependent on progress in the Cindered Shadows sidestory, while Anna can be recruited freely as soon as the mechanic becomes available. Yuri and Anna have a more lenient Faith requirement than Annette and Lysithea, and no character in the base game checks for Byleth's Resistance.

Character Stat Amount Required Skill Rank Required
Yuri Dexterity 15 Faith C
Balthus Strength 15 Brawling C
Constance Magic 15 Flying D
Hapi Resistance 10 Riding C
Anna Strength 10 Faith C

Paragon

Even though the Paragon ability is fully coded and functions as intended (i.e., it doubles the exp. earned of the playable unit that has it equipped), its effect ends up unused overall as the ability is only available to an enemy Hubert (from Chapter 12 on).

(Source: Original TCRF research)

Unused Group Task Data

The generic dialogue seen when performing Group Tasks comes in two sets, one casual (tameguchi) and one more polite (keigo). Which form is used is determined on a per-character basis, and code for this still exists for Byleth, Jeralt, Rhea, and Sothis despite them not being available for Group Tasks (or playable at all, in the latter three's case) in the final game.

Unused Paralogue Movement Scripts

In various paralogues, event scripts exist to change unrecruited ally characters' movement-related AI under certain conditions, but in the final game these characters are always controlled by the player, making the scripts effectively meaningless. Perhaps they were planned to be fully AI-controlled earlier in development?

Paralogue Condition Effect
Falling Short of Heaven (Paralogue – Ashe/Catherine) Start of battle Set the AIs of the unrecruited versions of Ashe and Catherine to move towards Rhea
The Face Beneath (Paralogue – Mercedes/Caspar) Start of battle Set the AIs of the (unused) unrecruited versions of Mercedes and Caspar to move towards each other and the player-controlled units that start at spaces (10, 26), (11, 27), and (9, 27)

Pegasus Knight Byleth in The Underground Chamber

Normally, player-controlled slots in a battle's unit data have no class assigned to them, but Byleth's slot in Chapter 6's story battle is set as a Pegasus Knight (specifically, the enemy-only Advanced variant of the class) for unknown reasons. This assignment has no visible in-game effect, though, since Byleth's actual class will remain unchanged from whatever it was going into the battle.

Alternate Villager Rewards in True Chivalry

In Felix's paralogue, the set of scripts that handles rewarding the player for how many NPC villagers they saved has an unused alternate version, which takes a different approach to judging how well the player did:

Result Unused condition Used condition
"You saved a few of the villagers." The villager that starts at space (2, 7) escaped, but the villager that starts at space (20, 6) did not Three or four villagers died (out of a total of five on the map)
"You saved most of the villagers." The villagers that start at space (2, 7) and at space (20, 6) escaped, but not all of the villagers did One or two villagers died
"You saved all of the villagers!" All of the villagers escaped No villagers died

Additionally, the unused scripts grant a Steel Lance instead of a Wo Dao for saving most of the villagers, and grant the Sword of Moralta instead of the Aegis Shield for saving all of the villagers.

Regional Differences

Graphics

JP/PAL English
Ns01 full motivation jppal.png Ns01 full motivation en.png

The icon used to display maximum motivation slightly differs depending on the console's chosen language, with the icon looking far more...subdued in the English version.

JP English
FETH congratulations jp.png FETH congratulations en.png

In Japanese, the English text from the HUD congratulating the player for successful actions lacks an exclamation mark.

JP English
FETH extra teatime JP.png FETH extra teatime EN.png

The English text indicating extra time during Tea Party differs between languages, with the Japanese version calling it "free time" instead.

JP English
FETH teatimegood JP.png FETH teatimegood EN.png

Similarly, the text indicating how successful a Tea Party was lacks an exclamation mark and is positioned differently in Japanese.

JP English
FETH game over JP.png FETH game over EN.png

In Japanese, the text used for the game over screen is in all caps; in English, only the first letters of each word retain the caps.

JP English
FETH END JP.png FETH END EN.png

Lastly, the ending text graphic differs between Japanese and English. The former goes for a more "artsy" feel by going with "FIN" (the French and Spanish word for "end") while the latter goes for a more traditional "The End" text. Some previous Fire Emblem games also used "FIN" in their endings, except usually in all regions.

General Changes

Game Mechanics

The description of the gambit Sacred Shield was subject to a small translation error:

Description (JP) Description (EN)
1ターンの間、射程2以上の距離から
受ける攻撃のダメージが0になる
(During one turn, any damage received from attacks
with 2 or more range is reduced to 0.)
Allies receive 0 damage from ranged physical
attacks for the rest of the turn.

The wording used in English suggests the gambit affects only ranged physical attacks (i.e., those that use Strength when calculating damage), which is never mentioned in the Japanese text. In reality, Sacred Shield protects allies from any kind of ranged attacks, whether they're physical or magical.

Supports

Hubert & Hanneman's C-Support
Speaker Expression Dialogue (JP) Dialogue (EN)
Hanneman Neutral 当時の陛下は、“七貴族”と呼ばれる 大貴族や外戚の特権を徐々に廃止し……
(At the time, His Majesty was gradually abolishing the privileges
of the Seven Noble Houses and their consort kin...)
In your father's defense, the emperor was attempting to take power from the Seven Houses.

During the support, one of Hanneman's lines in the English script omits that the Emperor tried to strip power from not only the Seven Noble Houses, but also from the consort kin. Given consorts are mentioned during Edelgard's Goddess Tower scene in all languages, it's likely their neglection in this particular line was an oversight.

Sylvain & Ingrid's C-Support
Speaker Expression Dialogue (JP) Dialogue (EN)
Ingrid Angry 10歳の頃は、収穫祭の余興で 女装した男性を本気で口説こうとして……
(When you were 10, you seriously tried to seduce a man
dressed as a woman during the harvest festival...)
When you were ten, we went to that harvest festival, and you started making eyes at a scarecrow!
Pedestrian Neutral (へえ、シルヴァンって  男まで口説くんだな……)
(Wow, Sylvain even hits on guys...)
A scarecrow?!

In Japanese, Ingrid accuses Sylvain of having tried to hit on a man dressed as a woman once, and the NPC hearing the conversation begins gossiping about it. In a likely effort to avoid homophobic undertones, the exchange was tweaked in the English script so that Sylvain had tried seducing a scarecrow instead, with the response from the NPC also changing accordingly.


(Source: fedatamine [31], original TCRF research)
Sylvain & Mercedes's A-Support
Speaker Expression Dialogue (JP) Dialogue (EN)
Mercedes Sad ……何があったかは、聞かないわ。
(I'm not going to ask what happened to you...)
I'm not very interested in the particulars, but...
Mercedes Neutral けれど、あなたが心の底では女の人を 嫌って、怖がっているのは、何となく……。
(However, I think you should know that deep down, you
hate and are afraid of women.)
I get the feeling that you don't care very much for these women who throw themselves at you.

Mercedes's words towards Sylvain in this exchange are noticeably more explicit in the original script, as she outright tells him his dislike towards women stems from hate and fear. In English, Mercedes instead tells Sylvain he appears to be indifferent at best towards the women who have tried to approach him.

Story and Battle Dialogue

The Holy Tomb (Golden Deer)
Speaker Expression Dialogue (JP) Dialogue (EN)
Flame Emperor Neutral それを眠らせておいたところで、 薬どころか毒にさえならぬ。
(When put to rest, this power can become neither medicine nor poison.)
That infernal power, which is masquerading as a medicine but is truly a poison, will plague this world no longer.

When speaking about Crest Stones, in Japanese, the Flame Emperor refers to them as an element which, by being left unused, can't serve as a medicine or poison, implying that they intend on making use of them. Meanwhile, in English, the Flame Emperor shows open disdain towards the Crest Stones, with their response suggesting they intend to do away with them for a noble purpose.

Questions and Answers
Speaker Expression Dialogue (JP) Dialogue (EN)
Edelgard Angry ……貴方のような持つ者には、持たざる者の 気持ちがわからないのでしょうね。
(A person like you who has received all those will never
understand the feelings of those who lack it.)
I doubt a highborn person like yourself could know how the poor feel or what motivates them.

In this event, Edelgard's response to Dimitri's claim that humans can help each other and even find the right path in such a way differs notably. In Japanese, Edelgard tells him that those who have received support from others cannot understand those who haven't, while in English, Edelgard appears to misinterpret Dimitri's claim and instead says he will never understand the feelings of the poor.

Clash at the Imperial Capital
Speaker Expression Dialogue (JP) Dialogue (EN)
Dimitri Neutral その変わり果てた姿が、 君の奉じた理想の果て、か。
……哀れみはしない。
(So this change of yours is what lies at the end of your ideals.
I can't pity you.)
To be changed beyond all recognition... That is what lies at the end of the ideals you served so diligently.
I have no pity for one such as you.
Dimitri Angry それが…… 君の、望んだ未来だと言うのなら。
(I can't pity you if this is the future you wanted...)
If that is the future you hoped for, then you deserve no compassion.

Dimitri's response upon seeing Edelgard's metamorphosis in Azure Moon's final mission is far less harsh compared to the translated script. In the original text, Dimitri merely states he won't pity Edelgard if her transformation is ultimately a result of her ideals.

Cornelia Happy はは、ははは……傑作だァ…… 踊らされていたのが……こちらとは、な……
(Hahaha... What a masterpiece... I have danced into...)
What a masterpiece! What a delightful dance...

Cornelia's final words upon being defeated by the Imperial army appear to have been subjected to a mistranslation. In English, Cornelia remains convinced her faction is still under control of the situation, while in Japanese, she instead realizes she had been played like a fiddle and even respects having fallen to such a scheme.
