Thanks for the sources!!

Sage-Only Apotheosis Run

With all the Fire Emblem excitement, I’ve been thinking about this Sage-run that I came up in a bit of sleep-induced madness. Going over and tweaking pairings for it…

Ramblings on stats, classes, and pairings under the break.

From what anime is this?!!

DRAMAtical Murder, commonly abbreviated to DMMD. It was originally a yaoi visual novel that I don’t think was ever officially released in English, but I’m sure you can find an English translation patch somewhere online. The anime version is currently being streammed on CrunchyRoll, which I linked to.  
Hope this helps :)

Armenian Women’s Armor. Because she’s ARMENIAN.

Not only does this one piece give more protection than the entire ensembles worn by many “strong” heroines - it also great with the dress and accessories.
There’s a lesson there for so many who design armor for female characters. So, so many.

Lucina, the proud warrior of the royal bloodline, has just been confirmed as a new challenger in Super Smash Bros 4!!

grrowlithe:

I have SO MANY feelings about Lucina and how awesome a female character she is and I will fucking defend her from every hater until the day I die
She’s tiny and boyish and has weird choppy hair and while she’s incredibly brave and selfless and steadfast she’s also still a teenage girl who wants to be loved by her dad and is kind of awkward around boys and has a god awful sense of humor. When F!Robin is not her mother, she follows her around and isn’t sure whether she’s trying to keep Robin from having an affair with her dad, or encourage her to do so because she can’t fathom that any woman wouldn’t want to be with this grand, handsome hero she sees her father to be.
She comes back from an apocalyptic future to save her father, and she saves his ass OVER and OVER again and even matches him in combat, never once needing to be rescued herself, and without her, everything would have gone completely to shit. She defies SO many shitty video game tropes while still playing on them and completely shitting on any expectations people might have of her and that is SO IMPORTANT TO ME that I refuse to let anyone ruin the absolute euphoria I felt that Nintendo decided that out of Chrom and Lucina, who would realistically have the exact same combat style and therefore, it probably wouldn’t make sense to have both of them in the new Super Smash, they chose Lucina, because she’s fucking IMPORTANT and she’s STRONG and she’s POWERFUL and she fucking DESERVES IT. I don’t give a FUCK if she’s a clone of Marth, Chrom would have fucking been too but at least now, those of us who don’t give a fuck about Marth get to play as somebody who interests us and who is equally awesome, if not more.
Nintendo is listening to their female fans and giving us fucking representation, FINALLY, and it makes me so happy I could cry, and did.
This is so incoherent I’m sorry I’m just so overwhelmed at all of this

netbug009:

SERIOUSLY, I have nothing against Fire Emblem but we don’t need 5 characters from a single franchise that isn’t one of Nintendo’s main staples, especially when they’re ALL SWORDSMEN. I’d trim it down to Ike and Robin. Two swordsmen, one with a unique magic slant and the other with a heavy slant. Nintendo has way too vast a collection of characters to choose from for five to be Fire Emblem humanoid sword users. 

…Yeah, even for as much as I am fangirling over the announcement, I can remember the forum discussions over possible reps. One choice brought up was Miciah, who would be an interesting choice since she’s a magic-based Lord, and it would be cool to see how her unique skill, Sacrifice, could be incorporated in her move set. Or if you want to go with more non-human characters, there are always the Manekets (basically shape-shifting dragons) and the the most prominent one in the franchise, Tiki, already has a trophy in the game so why not just make her playable? Either way, it would be more female fighters so Acara would still be a very happy camper :)

But there was no way Marth was ever going to be cut. He’s the face of Fire Emblem and cutting him would be like Pikachu just because another electric type got it Smash or something like that. Brawl did a good job differentiating Marth and Ike by having Ike be the heavy hitting but slower swordsman while Marth was the faster but less durable fighter. They can still keep that for Smash 4 by having Marth once again be the lighter fighter, Ike be the heavy fighter, and Robin have the tomes. I think that Lucina could be the middle-of-the-road fighter, since while she does use lots of Marth’s moves, she also always has access to Ike’s Aether in FEA so maybe have her be the mix of both of them?

Even if Lucina does end up being a Marth-clone, I would still be hesitate to cut her. Because while Smash may have many swordsman now, Lucina is the still a sword using female character. Her gender isn’t an option like Robin’s is, she’s female and you don’t have a choice in changing it. If it had been Chrom that go it, yeah, then I would be complaining more, but Lucina being in is just gives me so many feels. Her gender may seem arbitrary, but it takes me back to when Melee came out and I was so excited to play as Peach or Zelde, finally I could play as someone like me. Or even back in Smash 64 when my brother and I puzzled over Samus’s bio because holy crap, Samus is a girl? Since Nintendo tries to reach a more general audience that includes girls, I do think that Lucina was included because they wanted a female sword user in the rooster to get the same reaction out of players of this generation like they did with younger me.

TL:DR, a part of me is like, yes, this is too many sword users, but the other part of me is like, we have our female sword user and another possible female sword-user as well and if they were replaced, well, I would still want my female characters like Tiki, because she would have been awesome so who else could fit the spots?

Though on the issue of representation, that is curious. Even regarding the fact that Chrom seems to only be in Robin’s final smash (akin to Tom Nook showing up in the Villagers final smash), four is big number for a franchise that was going to end if Awakening didn’t sell enough. But Awakening was a big hit pretty much world wide so I wonder if that influenced the decision? When it was first released in Japan in April 2012, it did sell out 80% of its stock and it seems that Smash went into development around June 2012 so I wonder if Nintendo pressured Sakurai to included two characters from its then hottest selling game? Given how Marth and Roy’s presence in Melee is what caused the franchise to finally be released outside of Japan, maybe they are hopping Lucina and Robin would help continue to gather attention for the franchise outside across the world as well? Alternatively, 2015 will be the 25th anniversary of Fire Emblem so maybe the representatives are included as apart of a preemptive anniversary celebration?
