- "I'm not sure, but it's called the Burning Mirror. They say it can burn down an entire forest in an instant."
- —Valeria, Suikoden
The Burning Mirror (焦魔鏡; Shou Makyou) is a weapon that appears in Suikoden.
A weapon designed by the Dwarves using alchemy. This mirror allows its user to instantly incinerate a large area from afar, granting great power to those who command it. Due to being made of mostly glass, however, the Burning Mirror is extremely fragile.
Rosman, then under the influence of the Conqueror Rune, had the Burning Mirror constructed with the plan to use it to subjugate the traditionally autonomous races of the Great Forest. He eventually used the Burning Mirror on the Village of the Elves, destroying it and decimating most of its population.
When the Toran Liberation Army made to attack Rosman at Pannu Yakuta Castle, the Burning Mirror was nearly used again to decimate the liberation forces following their victory. However, before it could be used, the Burning Mirror was destroyed by another Dwarven invention, the Firewind Cannon.
