This seems like a controversial opinion on Twitter. Because it seems like the new meme. Is to reply with "Hoes Mad". But this isn't Twitter and there is some serious criticism against eight Fire Emblem representatives. And that is although there is a diverse range of characters in the actual games. The characters that are picked to represent the franchise in smash Bros. Are not picked with such diversity. Like there are other characters in Fire Emblem besides sword users.
@A Scientologist, Roy is my main BTW.. but I feel like people wouldn't be as upset. If we got characters like Hector, The Black Knight or Ryoma.
@A Scientologist, but Byleth isn't just a sword user, I like the variety of weapons he/she has
@Ferdinand Von Aegir, Yeah which is why he gets a pass. Along with Robin and Corrin. I'm not against sword fighters. But if Fire Emblem had more characters like those three. I feel like the criticism would be less. Although I do see people criticize pokemon. Since they are matched in representatives. People do argue there is more diversity.
@A Scientologist, I wanna see skull kid in there, or at least someone else from the Zelda universe
@A Scientologist, yeah they act like people cant be disappointed. The only franchise with more reps is Mario, and Mario should have the most reps tbh. They are tied with pokemon for reps. Almost every other franchise is trailing behind badly. Give us a new zelda character already! Donkey Kong only has three reps! Bring in some of the retro characters as you used to as well! There are other franchises dude dang...he loves fire emblem so much and he can't help himself but damn dude, there are just way too many. It doesn't help that so many of them are echo fighters either. Ike is my main and Roy is awesome but damn dude the fire emblem stuff is getting out of control.
@Awc123awc, before ultimate came out, there was a rumor that Skull Kid was in. That's all I really wanted. We do need more Zelda characters. Skull Kid would be awesome, and I wouldn't mind the 4 champions as one character. I'm disappointed in Byleth, cause I thought for sure it would be Dante. But I'll still play as Byleth to see if I'm any good.
@A Scientologist, Fire Emblem is way worse about it then Pokemon too. There are very few similar movesets among the pokemon. Lucario and Mewtwo only have one similar move. As far as I know only pikachu and pichu are similar (but they should be tbh)
@Mantis Tobaggan, I take it you were disappointed that Mike Jones wasn't in it like I was?
@A Scientologist, it's all marketing. Three Houses sold phenomenally well, and the Cindered Shadows (the final DLC for the game) is being released in February. This also acts as an indirect 3rd party due to Koei Tecmo's involvement with making the game.
Personally, I thought Akira from Astral Chain was going to be the next fighter, but because of the Spirit Board event this weekend it is most likely not happening
@A Scientologist, oh fvck will you marry me? I'm super disappointed all the time about that! Mike and Crono are my most wanted for sure. (The disappointment probably is my own fault.for those two lol)
@Mantis Tobaggan, Sure now that I know you're a Chrono Trigger fan. I remember before Hero was confirmed we knew we were getting a second Square rep. And I was SO hopeful for Crono! And the similar art style by Akira Toriyama left me in heartbreak. When for a second I thought Crono was in.
@A Scientologist, I know i wanted it so badly!
@A Scientologist, why does fire emblem (a game probably most of the player basis never played) get the most representation in smash brothers...
@A Scientologist, who are you to say that hoes aren’t mad
When will waluigi get his turn? 😔
@BlazingBowman, he's got the most spirits, it's something?
@ptitty1231, i dont play the game so i dont know what that is.
@BlazingBowman, Spirits replace both Trophies and Event Matches in SSBU, he's got at least 3
I would have preferred Claude or Dimitri but Byleth is ok I guess. I do love three houses.
@Raki Zaki, I’m excited, but i loved three houses. I can understand why this upsets most people.
@Miss Leading, what routes have you played?
@Raki Zaki, In order- Blue Lions w/ sexy byleth. Golden Deer with sexy byleth+ pen is. Currently chp 9 (yes THAT ONE) Black Eagles with sexy byleth ng++. I’m gonna do Black Eagles (alternate) on hardcore no ng+ sometime this year. Haven’t played since like october but I’ll finish it hasn’t left my mind. I just want to be everyones friend in that game. And you bet I’m gonna romance Edelgard this time around. Best original character from nintendo all decade, i refuse to change my mind.
@Miss Leading, I’d say Claude is the better character and has better memes. I think Edelgard is a genocidal nut job. And Dimitri is a raving, vengeful nut job. But I’ve only played golden deer and blue lions. Soon to start the other two routes. I try to get every possible support I can and spend a lot of time battling so none of my units die. I’ve put 200 hours into just my first two routes. It really is a great game.
@Raki Zaki, LOL same on the hours. My cousin and brother and a good friend of mine all have at least 150+ hours each.
Claude is definitely the most likable (surprisingly). Edelgard is just so crazy and drives the story forward single handedly. 100% psychotic- but thats why i love her. Strong flawed characters are my jam. To that end, Dimitri also had a surprisingly tragic and wonderful story. The time thing really helps to not lose anybody so far I’ve only ever lost one. Great game. Also apparently you can romance Sothis???
@Miss Leading, I intend to romance many different characters including, but not limited to, Lysithea, Annette, Sothis, Ingrid, Bernadetta, Leonie, Hilda, and Flayn. And maybe some male characters if I ever play as a female Byleth.
With so many Fire Emblem characters in the game it’s only fair that there be more Final Fantasy characters too
@Thane of Deez, good luck convincing Nomura
Although Neku from TWEWY would be a good addition, his series has always been on Nintendo exclusive systems
Ahem. H03$ mad
