Whoever voted to get both Corrins in, but especially to get female Corrin that high, have incredibly bad taste.

Also there's no characters from the first six games apart from Marth (twice) and Roy. The Tiki that got in is from Awakening. I guess this is the strength of the worldwide fanbase, I'd expect a lot more from the earlier games from the Japanese fanbase despite no one having personalities in the first three games.

I mean, Anna is in the old games as well, technically.

Micaiah is a good character in a wrapper of things that make her look like a bad character. 99% of the time, the character with a friendly animal companion, an unusual and strikingly beautiful physical trait, a curse that really makes her better than everyone else, and a secret royal heritage is just going to be complete garbage

Some people think that the fact that they were into something for longer makes that thing more theirs. Seen it a thousand times. It is the way of fandom.

I think that something like this is still going to get people more interested in the games they haven't played anyway.

I don't get it. I started Fire Emblem with Awakening. I started TRPGs with Final Fantasy Tictacs, and the Game Boy versions really didn't fill the hole and were completely lacking in tactical nuance. I got on board Awakening when I saw it was TRPG, enjoyed the colourful cast and unforgiving nature of the game.

Then I found out that this makes me forever a pleb. Sad.

Aren't these the results of the global voting bloc? I didn't think they were doing it independently by region/country.

I mean, that would explain why the Corrins are on the list in the first place, since they always end up high on the Japanese lists. At least there are some decent picks there, to make up for all the lovely ones in the top 10. Also, how the hell did Nino of all people crack the top 20? Are people just voting for her since she was in the trailer? She's not from a recent game like a lot of the trash choices, and I wasn't aware she was a particularly popular character, even limiting choices to just FE7 - let alone everything.


vv edit: ...I didn't even see her, though at #11 I'm going to claim she fits the "lovely ones in the top 10" part. I'm going to go with she's there because of a joke/meme voting bloc from somewhere, because I refuse to believe she's legitimately that popular overall.

Robin's a good character, is the thing. Well, the Robins are good characters, to be more precise, but you get my meaning.

I mean, yes. They're the Avatar, and they're both relatively low key (M more than F) so they can bounce off the entire cast more easily, but Robin's solid. He's (going with Male Robin for convenience of typing) good at both feeling like your guy in the plot most of the time and at having a personality and relationships with the other characters. The Chrom and Robin and Lucina dynamics are kind of the heart of the story, and Robin plays his part well as the more reserved, cautious counterpart to Chrom's brashness. There's twists that pay off earlier moments, and the crippling self doubt hidden by good humored self-effacement is a nice flaw to balance out the fact Robin's portrayed as a genius's genius.

He's brilliant partially because they made a character that fits the Avatar role. It makes sense Robin talks to everybody, because Robin's kind of a workaholic and believes the team that trusts is the team that triumphs, so of course he talks to everyone and obsessively tries to help with their problems. And, because of the self esteem thing, he's kind of a doormat, so he gives a lot of room for the other characters to indulge their quirks.

With Corrin around to show how easy it is to gently caress up the concept, Robin shines all the brighter.
