Rune Pieces are items in the Suikoden series. In the original Suikoden game, rune pieces act as a means to add more customization options in regards to upgrading weapons. They are replaced by Weapon Runes in Suikoden II and Suikoden IV, as well as the Sword of Magic Rune in Suikoden III. In Suikoden V, they have a different function.

SuikodenEdit

In Suikoden I, Rune pieces can be attached to a weapon at a blacksmith's shop. They affect weapon attributes and/or character stats. There is a limited amount of rune pieces available, with the exception of Water rune pieces and Earth rune pieces, which can be farmed from enemies.

A coding issue exists regarding the Earth rune piece and Wind rune piece. An Earth rune piece is actually the Wind rune piece, and the Wind rune piece is really the Earth rune piece. This is evidenced not only by the damage output during combat, but also by viewing the enchantment effects that are displayed in the Tablet of Stars character window.

Suikoden VEdit

In Suikoden V, Rune pieces are pieces of a high level or rare rune like a Flowing Rune or Resurrection Rune. When four of them are obtained, they can be brought to a runemaster who can assemble them into a complete rune that the party can equip.

In general, this is the only way to obtain some of the game's strongest runes. The exception is the Blinking Rune Piece, which is a consumable item that allows the player to summon one party member from their castle while in dungeons or on the world map without speaking to Luserina.
