Fire Emblem: Three Houses may have done away with the weapon triangle, but there's arguably still a combat hierarchy at play here. The Crests that everyone makes a big deal about? They're ace. Most of your prodigal students at the Garreg Mach academy will possess a Crest, and you're told pretty early on that these things are pretty damn important. Crests are what give various major players in the story enhanced powers, and they're a big deal not only when you're trying to kick butt on the battlefield but also in the wider world of Fodlan. Let our Fire Emblem Three Houses crests guide help you identify who bears which crest, and what they can do.

Fire Emblem Three Houses Crests Guide

While not every character that you can control in Fire Emblem Three Houses. However, the ones who do have Crests have had them passed down through blood lineage. There are some paralogues concerned with how nobles inherit Crests, and the general gist of it is that they're incredibly special and valuable: special and valuable enough for some people to take up arms against others because of them. There's no need to be overly concerned with that though if you're just wanting to find out what the Crests of your favorite students do. Our full list is as follows.
