Plot

Main article: A Knight-Filled Sky/Script

As Marth and his companions approach the capital of Macedon, Michalis asks Gotoh to evacuate until the fighting ends. Gotoh makes one last effort to convince Michalis to surrender, which falls on deaf ears. Marth besieges Macedon, transforms the Lightsphere and Starsphere into Starlight, and defeats Michalis. He and Malledus lament how Michalis and Camus had their potential wasted by Gharnef's destructive war and prepare to make for Thabes.

Strategy

This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

You have a major decision to make in this chapter - whether or not to sacrifice the Lightsphere and Starsphere to obtain Starlight and eventually Falchion. On the NES, Marth is one of the strongest units in the game and the Falchion makes him immune to 1-range attacks that don't come from mages or Manaketes, making this a no-brainer. On the DS, however, his stat spread makes it highly likely that he won't survive combat with Medeus even at level 30 without significant stat booster favoritism. The Falchion is decent, giving Marth the ability to two-shot enemy Manaketes with a mere 16 Strength (minus one for every time he's improved his sword rank) and having infinite durability. However, a simple forged Wyrmslayer would deal more damage to generic Manaketes, and Tiki stands a much better chance against Medeus. It therefore may be a good idea to ignore Gotoh's village and keep the spheres for infinite durability for your best weapons and the ability to ignore terrain. If you do decide to trade the spheres for Falchion, you can always use Lena's 12-use Hammerne staff to maintain your weapons. The choice, as always, is yours. Also note that this is the only chapter you can buy ballistae in bulk, so now's a good chance to stock up.

On to the battle itself. Push counterclockwise around the mountain and meet the first wave. It's highly unlikely you'll be able to beat the Thief to Gotoh's village, so if you want to intercept him out of pride or to get Starlight you'll probably need to expend a Warp charge. The biggest problem is the reinforcements that pour out of the capital, including several dangerous Swarm Bishops. Pick them off with your artillery and keep a healer near your magically squishy units to keep them alive. If you have two powerful tanks, you can plug up the northern stairs and turn them into a safe chokepoint. Michalis himself isn't too dangerous.
