Can you describe how the devil weapons from Fire Emblem work for the benefit of those who aren't familiar with them?

this would probably require passive states and buff state core plugins.
weapon gives user a state, state has a custom confirm effect that checks if doing a physical attack before damages the user.
(im not good with this stuff so someone correct me if get syntax wrong)

<Custom Establish Effect>
if (this.isPhysical()) {
var heal = Math.floor(user.mhp * 0.1);
user.gainHp(-heal);
}
</Custom Establish Effect>

weapons with higher base stats but hurt the user when they land a hit.

they can backfire damage to the user for ex. 10 hp dmg whenever they hit but they deal large damage

You should be able to just do this inside the damage formula. If you want a 15% chance to deal 10 damage to the user, put:
Code:
if (Math.randomInt(100)<15) a.gainHp(-10);
then the rest of your damage formula.

no, something as simple as affecting the user whenever the skill hits can be done completely without a plugin, just by damage code.
backfire damage to the user for ex. 10 hp dmg whenever they hit
That is even simpler than ATT_Turan's example above

Code:
a.gainHP(-10); 4* a.atk - 2* b.def
This damage formula would do normal damage and deal 10 HP damage to the skill user on each target hit.

issue im seeing with damage formula approach is could have 4 weapon types each type having 1 "devil" weapon and several normal weapons.
the devil weapon is meant to have this effect for "all" weapon attack skills, not just 1 specific skill.
could use damage formula instead of buff/state notetag. but the formula for every weapon attack skill would still need to check for a devil weapon marker.

That, or use something like Yanfly's Weapon Unleash to replace the Attack skill with a version that uses the above damage formula when equipping a devil weapon.

Code:
if ($dataWeapons[a.equips()[0].itemId()].meta["devil"]) a.gainHp(-10);

in front of your damage formula should make it do 10 damage to you if you put the <devil> notetag in your weapon.
