Shadow Dragon - Online Shop Exclusive Items Integrated into Normal Gameplay

Hack of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon


This patch integrates exclusive items from the now-defunct Online Shop into normal gameplay.

Why does that matter? Well, I’ll let the wiki explain it: “Along with most Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection services, the online shops in both Shadow Dragon and New Mystery of the Emblem permanently closed on May 20th, 2014. For Shadow Dragon, this had the effect of rendering the Elysian Whip (and in turn the Falcoknight class) and three of the Brave weapons as essentially unused content… for new save files created after that date on original cartridges.”

Now, all those items are back in the game as droppable items (or in some cases, in the starting inventory of certain characters). A list of what went where:

  • Chapter 7 - generic archer has droppable Longbow
  • Chapter 9 - generic pirate has droppable Poleax
  • Chapter 11 - pegasus knight has Elysian Whip
  • Chapter 13 - boss has Master Seal
  • Chapter 14 - boss has Master Seal
  • Chapter 15 - generic dracoknight has Elysian Whip
  • Chapter 18 - Sternlin (the boss) has Brave Lance
  • Chapter 19 - generic hero that starts near Tiki has Brave Sword; Tiki has Elysian Whip (droppable, if you want to kill her to access 24x)
  • Chapter 20 - Lorenz has Brave Bow (not droppable; must recruit him to get it)
  • Chapter 20x - Ymir starts with Brave Axe (not droppable; must recruit him to get it)
  • Chapter 6x - Athena starts with Wo Dao

Be warned, these enemies will use these new items against you until you kill them and claim the weapons for your own. However, depending on your difficulty (primarily if you’re playing on Normal), two or three of the above enemies will lack the weapon rank required to use the new items, although they will still drop them as normal. On higher difficulties, all bets are off - everybody is skilled enough to use everything in their new arsenal against you.

In addition, Falcoknights have been updated to use their FE12 stats; previously, as the class was not in the original, the developers intended it mostly as an easter egg and did not seem to balance it. As a result, the Falcoknight had absolutely no advantages over the Dracoknight. Now, the Falcoknight has higher Speed, Skill, and a higher maximum Speed, but lower Strength than the Dracoknight, in line with their appearance in FE12.

OnlineItemsInGame.XDELTA incorporates the Updated Gaiden Requirements Removal Patch.

OnlineItemsWithHardPrologue.XDELTA incorporates BOTH the Updated Gaiden Requirements Removal Patch and the Prologue in Hard Modes Patch.


This was made using the US version of FE11, so you should use an .nds file from that region.
