Quantum Anomaly Dragonstone+

Nowi is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Awakening and is one of three manakete characters in the game. Additionally, she enters Super Smash Bros. Quantum as a unique playable character, complete with transformation abilities.

Basic Summary

Nowi specializes in agility and recovery, having a large dodge range and multiple mid-air jumps. She also possesses long-ranged smash attacks and special attacks, giving her a long range to attack from. However, she is not very powerful and has relatively low weight.

Like Robin, Nowi possesses the Weapon Stamina ability, giving her a limited quantity of times that she may use special attacks, which is listed on the HUD. However, unlike Robin, where each tome has its own stamina, Nowi's specials all thrive off her Dragonstone, which has more stamina than a standard tome. Additionally, Nowi's Down Special, Dragonstone Charge, enables her to regenerate weapon stamina, and her smash attacks do not require energy.

Smash Taunts


  • Pit: Alright, so who's the new Smasher?
  • Nowi: Oh, hi! My name's Nowi!
  • Nowi: Well, I guess. With all the stuff manaketes can do, I'm not that surprised.
  • Pit: Manakete?
  • Palutena: Ancient beings native to the Fire Emblem universe. They were originally dragons, but took on human form after being hunted and attacked by humans.
  • Viridi: Even in other universes, humans hate nature! It's disgusting!
  • Palutena: Anyways, manaketes can revert back to draconic form for a short time using a relic known as a Dragonstone.
  • Nowi: Hah! Luckily I actually remembered to bring it! Vaike has been rubbing off on me a bit.
  • Pit: I am definitely not looking forward to fighting a dragon.
  • Nowi: Unfortunately, even the Dragonstone has limits.
  • Palutena: Like Robin, she can only use her special attacks a certain amount of times before exhausting the Dragonstone's power.
  • Viridi: She is capable of recharging it at will, but this leaves her exposed, so try to get in a Smash Attack while she's recharging.
  • Pit: So... If I win... Can I keep the Dragonstone?!
  • Nowi: It only works on manaketes, dummy. *giggles*
  • Pit: Darn it.
