Standard iron gauntlets—simple but effective. Wielder attacks twice when initiating combat.



First game

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

The Iron Gauntlets (Japanese: 鉄の籠手 Iron gauntlets) is one of the basic brawling weapons introduced in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. While the weapon has a very low Might, it compensates for this by being a Brave weapon and having a low Weight, at least guaranteeing a double attack on the player phase and making quad attacks easier to pull off than with the other comparatively heavier brave weapons in the game. Due to its low might, the weapons is best in the hands of characters with a high Strength stat and an average Speed stat.

The Iron Gauntlets occupy the E-rank in Brawling proficiency alongside the Training Gauntlets, the main difference being that the Iron Gauntlets have higher might at the cost of fewer uses and higher weight.
