Tome

First game

Fire Emblem Fates

Ginnungagap (Japanese: ギンヌンガガプ Ginnungagap) is a tome which was introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. It is the only A-rank tome and has great raw power, possessing the highest might of any tome or scroll in Fates by a significant margin. However, it has shaky accuracy and using it takes a toll on its wielder, leaving them temporarily unable to do as much damage with their next attacks.

  • As revealed by text file dumps, Ginnungagap is internally referred to in Japanese Fates as "Yggdrasil" (Japanese: ユグドラシル).[1] This may have been an early name for the tome.
