I love Chrom, my girl my unit made mad kids with Chrom, I think Chrom is one of the coolest fire emblem protagonists to exist but I don’t want Chrom in the new Super Smash Bros game. Right from the start you get to feel the bound you as a player have with Chrom. When the stuff happens to Chrom he at worse is thinking “You do what you do, you wear what you wear, you look like shit, but I love it. ” In all seriousness I felt like they caught in his eyes this feeling that he was still your friend even at deaths door. Even with all that said I think several reasons really point to why he shouldn’t be playable, Variety, Diversity, and true importance.
The Spirit of Fire Emblem isn’t sword play but since we have had Fire Emblem we have had triangles. I think it be a shame to have three Fire Emblem characters and only have swords when Dragons, Magic, lances, and axes all have been equipped by main characters of the series. I think the character will be from awakening so someone popular like tharja, Sumia, Flavia all are popular characters who could fit right in with the roster offering a lot of new instead of a little new.
Fire Emblem is a very diverse series, showing several races and genders. It is the Nintendo series with the most fleshed out characters and the most women in leading roles. While the vast majority of Nintendo’s women exist just to be saved by some hero Fire Emblems women defy male leaders, grow, and work hard to support causes they have faith in. Characters like Tiki and Anna have made several appearances in Fire Emblem games making them perfect character choices that show women in a cool light. Beyond that I can’t really name a women character in awakening that wouldn’t be fun to play as in the game.
Finally, my very last point on this subject Chrom’s real importance. There are only three Fire Emblem games where you are given an avatar in this world, one of with is awakening. While this story may seem to be Chrom’s story if you stop to think about it Chrom isn’t the real important figure. Really it’s the Tale of Lucina and of the My Unit. Lucina traveling back in time is the reason that everyone isn’t dead. My Unit defying her fate is the reason why darkness won’t rule. Chrom may command the army but the my unit is it’s tactician, and Lucina is the reason the fight is worth it. If Chrom wasn’t there and Lissa took over really it be the same exact story. Chrom hadn’t really done anything on his own that changed anything. I think Chrom is the heart of the team but Lucina is the soul of the game and Robin (My unit, you) is the mind.
So I hope I have made my points clear and maybe changed a few peoples minds on who should be in the game. Regardless of what happens i’ll be happy but I really think Chrom on his own shouldn’t be joining. However, I think if they do a My Unit Chrom pair up or Chrom Lucina id be happy. I think personally now that we have Ike confirmed My Unit makes the most sense, magic is really the characters main weapon in cut scenes, she represents both evil and good in the series, he/she can be ether sex, she is an important character to awakenings story, and a lot of potential awesome is inside her. Id love to see any none sword using male character join but id prefer it to be a magic using women. If you would like to talk about Fire Emblem or Smash Bros PM me and if you would like to see more of my stuff you know what to do.
