I'm not even sure how to describe it, but this character is so.damn.dry. Lack of emotions aside from one or two scenes, and maybe some head tilting whenever she is confused. The S rank scenes are good, but it's still just the other character doing all the talking and they might as well be talking to a wall hanging or corner plant.

I kinda wish we could alter the appearance other than just clothing, but that would just be putting a bandaid on a gunshot wound.

I know people did not like Corrin and the one before her whose name I can't remember at the moment (because I always change it) but even they were better than this statue of a "character".

In post skip it's worse because SPOILERS No Sothis

Imagine replacing this character with Tofu from Resident Evil, and I feel nothing would change.

Because they're another half-baked attempt at a not-really-self-insert, just like Kris, Robin and Corrin before them, except the parts that suck have just been shifted around again.

How dare you compare Tofu san to Byleth, that tofu displayed more emotions when it died than Byleth will in his entire life.

There's a reason that I named them "Plank-chan" in every playthough after my first.

you're suppose to insert yourself into Byleth, Byleth completely depends on your ability to do so.

Nothing ruins my immersion (spelling?) more than a blank slate insert character that tries to be both blank and a character. Some games can do it right like Dragon Age Origins, and Metroid games, but most I have played do not.

it's how Japan does avatar characters.... not sure why you bring up Samus, it's not an RPG, nor is it character and narrative driven.

DAO is a plank too, it wasn't till DA2 and later that they started having the avatars voiced when you choose a dialogue option, at that point, it's more like a customizable character than an avatar. But if you play CRPGs like Pathfinder and Dungeons and Dragons, it's all plank avatars. btw, you should totally play the Baldur's Gate series (also now on the switch) greatest RPG of all time.

This is exactly what all the FE avatars are though, minus Mark.

Corrin though? I'd rather be bland toast than soggy toast tbh.
