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.
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.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses tells the story of the worst high school reunion in history.

Note that this page has unmarked spoilers for certain ingame story events.

Revisional Differences
LOTS of updates.

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 most of them reach 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 Characters

Playable Jeralt, Rhea and Sothis

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Provide growths, base stats and spell list for the characters.

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 boons/banes 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.

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 be serve a similar purpose as well.

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 chatacter is a 17 year old girl with the Commoner class, her birthday is in January 1, her base stats and growths are exactly the same as Ferdinand, 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.

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? Do the Dark Blutgang, Ridill and Tomas's Staff have unique models?

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

Unused Battalions

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Do they use any icons? Are they fully functional?

There are many unused battalions in the game's code. Most of them seem to have been meant for specific enemy factions which never deploy them in the final game.

Unused Gambit

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
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 Map Sprites

Several characters (Hubert, Ferdinand, Ashe, Raphael, Lysithea, Leonie and Hanneman) have sets of personalized map 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 map sprites instead.

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

Jeralt has map 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 map 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 ultimately 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 monster's weaknesses also exist for brawling, white magic, black magic and dark magic spells despite none of them being used.

Two icons meant for unused item type(s).

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

FETH Miklan's thieves flag.png

Among 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

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

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.

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

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

Graphic files depicting the Horsebow, Wyvern, Red Wold and Ethereal Moon murals can be found in spite of the first three months being never visited in any route during Part 2 while the last one uses completely new graphics for it's brief appereance in the second half of the game.

Placeholder Cutscene Images

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.

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 has hardcoded that no one 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.

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 if the game's dub is set to English.

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

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 it's 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.

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 was added in the version 1.1.0 update, uses a unique playable version of the class—also added with said update—which teaches the ability Counterattack instead.

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.

Unused NPC Battle Voice Clips

Voice clips for generic and important NPCs triggering a Gambit Boost exist in the game's files, despite being impossible for enemy and allied units to abuse this mechanic in the final game.

More defecting Black Eagles in Silver Snow?

In the Silver Snow route, if one 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 is 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 with 20 might, 5 weight, 100 hit, 0 crit, 1-9 range, with infinite uses and deals magic damage. Because of this, it's possible through hacking to obtain said weapon and have any playable character wield it without issues.

Regional Differences

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Document script differences between the Japanese and English/International script
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.
