Fire Emblem Engage Horse Manure Gift Explained: What is It?

Horse manure in Fire Emblem Engage is more than just a smelly item drop. Here's what you can do with it.

There are plenty of gifts to give your favorite characters in Fire Emblem Engage. One potential present that may have you covering your nose, though, is horse manure. It doesn't sound like a very good thing to give anyone, and honestly: it isn't. Even the item's details ask why you would want to give such an item to anyone, let alone a friend or an ally. If you're here, you've come across the gift and are likely curious to learn more about it.

Though you won't be rolling in it, so to speak, you'll find horse manure while trekking across Elyos; just keep in mind it's rather rare. As you explore, you'll sometimes come across the noxious stuff lying around as one of the many gold motes on the ground if you're lucky. You can then stuff it in your inventory for later use if you're into that kind of thing.

Horse manure also drops in the Somniel after each chapter and Paralogue it seems. I've found several near the stable, as well as some near the well behind the stable, so keep an eye out in those locations. It doesn't appear resting resets item drops in the Somniel, so you can't farm it.

To quickly find items spread around any area, battlefield or the Somniel, pull up your map with ZR and look for the glowing points. Doing so will save you valuable time searching every nook and cranny.

What is Horse Manure Used for in Fire Emblem Engage?

Horse manure doesn't serve any practical purpose in Fire Emblem Engage. It seems to exist only as a punchline from the developers, one you can share with other characters in the game for a chuckle. Gift-giving is a big part of FE: Engage, as with many other series titles, and this present falls strictly into the Punk'd category. Nothing else. Giving this gift is, again, completely optional. 

Typically, you give gifts to increase your relationship or standing with a character, and of course, each character has likes and dislikes that affect the strength of your friendship with them. There are plenty of good options available, and in the scheme of things, horse manure is just kind of weird as a choice. 

Regardless, horse manure has no positive effects, though it oddly won't negatively impact your relationships either. So while some characters may be revolted by horse manure and respond in kind, you won't lose friendship points for gifting it to them. Maybe give a lovely candle instead.
