Really. We don't need 4 Fire Emblem characters. In Smash Bros, many series are represented. Mario, Pokemon, Zelda are some of their main series and so deserve lots of characters. Star Fox is a bit of a stretch with some games being questionable due to their badness but it can slide. Kid Icarus had a big-selling game on the 3DS. Donkey Kong has been going strong with their series and are known by old and new players alike. Mother hasn't had many games for a long time but is still there for old players. Kirby is a big series for Nintendo as well. Of course the characters that are not listed here have few characters, Yoshi, Warioware, F-Zero, Game and Watch, Third parties, etc all have one character and that is fine. Fire Emblem however, is not. Four characters puts it at a level at Zelda, above Kirby, and close to Mario and Pokemon. This is ridiculous. Fire Emblem has always been an odd series for Smash, always seeming like the odd one out. Until now, I have tolerated a mere two characters but now there is way too many characters. They are all swordsmen and aren't that unique (with the exception of Robin who still uses his sword of course). Four characters all similar to each other is unacceptable and I cannot see Sakurai's reasoning for this. I still see people crying for Chrom. Please, already four characters is beyond my comprehension and I am displeased to see this much Fire Emblem representation when Fire Emblem isn't even a big series for Nintendo.

To me, judging characters by what franchise they're from isn't fair.

I don't think "Fire Emblem shouldn't have 4 reps" is a real argument.

I say you should judge Marth, Ike, Lucina, and Robin as there own characters. Not by just what franchise they're from.
Here's to hoping the next Pikmin installment doesn't take another 9 years.

Then as long as say, more Pokemon characters are added and they are unique we can have tons of those because I should judge them as seperate characters

TC, just stop. You're far from the only one on this board to say this, and you really should've just looked at any one of the similar topics before making this useless one that will get the same results as the aforementioned topics.

Poor sales, and 4 characters that use swords. Only one has any kind of unique character trait.
