I honestly don't understand why Tharja would be included

I recently just finished playing Fire Emblem Awakening. For the past few months, I've seen people rave about Tharja's role in the game and many post about her potential inclusion in Smash Bros. This had me very hyped about her before I even saw her. *Warning, spoilers ahead* When "Marth" and Chrom are fighting, she announces that she learned how to fight from her father. "This has to be her" I thought. "Tharja has to be Chrom's daughter". Nope! I found out a few chapters later that Tharja not only doesn't have a major impact on the story, but she's completely OPTIONAL to even have in your party.

I like Tharja. Don't get me wrong, I think it would be cool if she was in the game. I just don't know how people decided that an optional character that you meet halfway through the story is grounds for a coveted spot in the Smash Bros. roster. Is it because she's a girl? Is it because she's sexy? Is it the fact that she's a dark mage and would differentiate herself from Marth/Ike/Roy who attack with swords? I'm actually asking.

The only reason people want her is because they want to see her boingybits in HD.

She won't be, so you don't need to understand it.

The fact that there isn't any real way to "understand" her inclusion is the exact reason we'll never have to worry about it haha.

I want her because she's a mage. FE is more than the sword wielding tropes it keeps getting as reps.

If that's the case then what's wrong with getting like... an important mage?

Well.. I struggle to see how an optional character who serves no specific purpose beyond getting another optional character is important. Definitely not more important than someone like a Micaiah.

Sety, Aversa, Micaiah, Celica, Katarina, Julius, Julia, Merric, Pent and Lilina are all more important than Generic Optional Mage #34 (Tharja) off the top of my head.

She's a mage and almost anyone's better than Chrom/Roy/Lucina so I'll support pretty much almost anyone else. We really need a more unique FE character.
