Robin (or My Unit) is one of the three main characters from Fire Emblem: Awakening, the thirteenth installment of the series.


At the beginning of Fire Emblem: Awakening, Robin is lying unconscious on a field, when they are rescued by Chrom's Shepherds. Despite losing their memory, Robin has great knowledge of fighting battles and serves as the troops' tactician. Leading Chrom and the Shepherds through a long campaign to protect Ylisse from the Plegians, Robin becomes Chrom's trusted advisor for war and ultimately leads to Chrom's victory over Gangrel.

Two years after Gangrel's defeat, Valm intends to invade Ylisse. Chrom and Robin decide to talk to the new king of Plegia who is none other than Validar, whom was slain in Emmeryn's assassination attempt. Validar also introduces his hierophant, who looks exactly like Robin, and even introduces themselves by the same name. Nevertheless, Validar gives Chrom and the Avatar the necessary provisions to go to war. Later that night, a voice calls to the Avatar. Validar appears and reveals that the Avatar is the descendant of a long line of Grimleal leaders and the first one who has a Heart of Grima strong enough to become his vessel. However, fearing for her child's life, the Avatar's mother took them from their crib and fled the cult and Plegia altogether to protect her child from their cruel destiny.

After defeating Walhart the Conqueror, and acquiring all of the Fire Emblem's gemstones, Robin and Chrom attempt to stop Validar's scheme to resurrect the Fallen Dragon, but they fail, and they are forced to fight against Grima.

Powers & Abilities

  • Skilled Tactician: Robin is best known for his/her skill as a tactician. More details in the Feats section of this page.
  • Foresight: Robin has demonstrated the ability to see the future in certain situations. He/she predicted Chrom's "death", and he/she can also see his/her chances of striking the opponent, being stricken by them, or their chances of landing a critical hit, though this may be just gameplay mechanics.


  • Veteran: When Robin is paired up with another unit, any EXP gained is multiplied by 1.5.
  • Ignis: Increases damage dealt by adding half of his/her Strength/Magic stat, depending on which weapon is being used
  • Solidarity: This skill increases the critical rate and critical evade to nearby allies.
  • Tactical Advice: When Robin is the support unit in Guard Stance, the lead unit’s Hit rate is increased.


  • Swords: Though mostly represented with the Bronze Sword, Robin can wield a large variety of swords, with these next two being the highlights.
    • Silver Sword: Out of the common set of weapons in FE:A, this is the strongest one Robin can use.
    • Levin Sword: A magic sword that can shoot lightning. Robin's signature weapon.
  • Tomes: By using magic tomes, Robin can summon a wide variety of spells.
    • Thunder Line (Thunder, Elthunder, Arcthunder, Thoron, and Mjölnir): Robin shoots a ball of lightning, which becomes deadlier depending on the spell used. Arcthunder explodes upon contact. Thoron consists of a constant stream of lightning. Mjölnir makes lightning fall from the sky, and it also increases Robin's skill.
    • Fire Line (Fire, Elfire, Arcfire, Bolganone, and Valflame): Robin shoots a fireball, which becomes deadlier depending on the spell used. Arcfire shoots a constant stream of flames. Bolganone causes an eruption beneath the opponent's feet. Valflame covers the opponent in a huge ball of flames, and also increases Robin's magic power.
    • Wind Line (Wind, Elwind, Arcwind, Rexcalibur, Excalibur, and Forseti): Robin shoots a gust of wind, which becomes deadlier depending on the spell used. Elwind shoots a blade made out of wind. Forseti shoots a constant stream of wind, and also increases Robin's speed.
    • Nosferatu (Non-canon): A Dark Magic tome that Robin can't use in his default classes, but appears in the Super Smash Bros. series as one of his special attacks. With it, Robin absorbs the enemy's health.
  • Seals
    • Master Seal: Promotes all Level 10+ first-tier units into a different class.
    • Second Seal: Re-classes a given unit into a class belonging to a different class set.
  • Einherjar: During his/her time in the Outrealms, Robin collected numerous Einherjar cards. These cards hold a phantom of a warrior from the past. According to Old Hubba, the Einherjar replicate these spirits of heroes down to their personalities and appearance, but they are nothing more than phantoms and are completely loyal to whoever summons them. Once they are defeated they revert to their card form and can be summoned later.
