Mwah-ha-ha! Our first prey in a long time. Leave them to me, my fang-brothers!
— Pain

Pain (Japanese: ヘル Hell) is one of two leaders of a band of beast laguz bandits who claimed a treasure-filled ruin in the Desert of Death as their territory. Along with his fellow leader of the band, Agony, he attacked Micaiah and the Dawn Brigade when they were drawn into their ruin by a voice Micaiah heard.

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn


Pain is one of two bosses of Part 1 Chapter 4, along with Agony, and acts as the commander of one of the two separate "Laguz Bandits" factions in the chapter, with two other enemies assigned to his faction. The chapter's objective is to rout the enemy, including Pain.

Pain starts the chapter unshifted, with his transform gauge full at 30 points.

Personality and character

Like Agony, Pain behaves in a brutally animalistic way, talking mostly about how he likes eating beorc.


Battle quotes

Mwah-ha-ha! Come here so I can taste you!
— Pain, as the boss of Part 1 Chapter 4 in Radiant Dawn.
Pain: Mwah-ha-ha! Beorc are good eats!
Micaiah: Listen up! We did not intentionally intrude on your territory.
Pain: Mwah-ha-ha! I'll listen...while I'm gnawing on your bones!

— Pain, when fighting Micaiah in Part 1 Chapter 4 of Radiant Dawn.

Death quotes

Mwah...ha...ha– Gnk! How did this happen?
— Pain, as the boss of Part 1 Chapter 4 in Radiant Dawn.

Other appearances


  • Some of Pain's stats contrast Agony's to suggest a sort of theme of duality between the two: his earth affinity contrasts Agony's heaven affinity, his erratic type 3 biorhythm contrast's Agony's stable type 2 one, and his higher strength and defense stats contrast Agony's higher skill and speed stats.
  • Eccentric bandit pairs appear to be somewhat of a tradition in Fire Emblem series games, pairs like Pain and Agony appear in other games as well; examples include: Rose and Maggie, Paul and Jasmine, Victor and Vincent, and Llewelyn and Lloyd.
