In terms of likability and personality, not usefulness










Had to combine Thracia and Genealogy due to only 10 poll options (they share a good number of characters though). Vote for your least favourite overall cast.

If I only count NEW characters introduced in that game probably Radiant Dawn. The only interesting characters are either from POR with maybe Michaiah as an exception but she spends part 4 just being a mouthpiece for Yune so....

The Dawn Brigade are soooooooooo boring and underdeveloped, with Meg being the worst offender who's only there to pay off a gag from one of Brom's supports in POR. The game's lack of real support conversations and the new characters having to share the spotlight with the POR crew didn't help.

Awakening, hands down. I'd go on a tirade why I feel that way, but basically, it's the only game that outright delves into stereotypes than just harmless old archetypes. The beefhead who seeks to become the world's best warrior? Check. The emotionally-stunted hyper-intellectual mage? Check. Two barely heroic quasi-evil dark mages? Check. And those are just the worst offenders that come to mind.

You know your cast has issues when the intended Hate Sink (Gangrel, who's that game's Best Boi) is the one character I unironically like.

Sacred Stones cast is quite bland but they aren't bad

Fates in general have a very unlikeable cast imo. Even so they aren't horrible
Sorry for my bad english

Fates was pretty decent in terms of designing characters but they’re personalities are often trash, they’re mostly just stupid tropes. Looking at Camilla, Felicia, Elise and such in particular.

Sacred Stones for me. The characters were mostly dull. Specially Ephraim.

Fates had decent characters just as much as it had crappy ones. There's some charm in them, specially the royals. Even Corrin, the most boring of the bunch, is still preferable to Ephraim for me.

"In terms of likeability and personality"

Do most of the characters from Shadow Dragon even have personalities?

I don't remember them having any, but then again, just about everyone has about 0 backstory and barely any screen time.

Shadow Dragon is the easy answer so I'll go with Awakening.

Awakening's characters are just so bland and forgettable. I don't like all of Fates' characters but at least I still remember a good amount of them.

RIP Fates. At least I enjoyed them. Correction: MOST of them.
If I can change my name I would. You can find me everywhere else as OrcaWolf.
