Fire Emblem's fanbase alone is enough to make you hate the series

All over this board, all the Fire Emblem fans try to pretend like FE is as important of a franchise as Mario or Zelda, just because Awakening was a successful release. This, of course, is hilarious, because these same fans insist that the series is underrated, despite a delusional take on the importance of the series.

And then there's all the people who say Chrom is GUARANTEED (which might be close to true, but is a cocky statement), but at the same time insist that there's NO WAY Ike will be cut. And despite Sakurai expressing that the roster won't be much larger than Brawl, the FE fans insist that FE will have a whopping four reps. Why is FE deserving of as many reps as Mario, Zelda, or Pokemon? And at least among the aforementioned franchises, the characters are almost entirely different from one another, whereas the "four FE characters" are all sword users.

You guys need to give it a rest. FE isn't nearly as big as you make it out to be. How about we give chances to unrepresented franchises, or additional reps to more deserving franchises with only one, rather than give four to a completely overrated franchise?

Given that Star Fox has three reps I don't think expecting three for Fire Emblem is out of the question. It's really just Roy fanboys who accept he won't get in over Ike and Chrom who are trying to push four.

Also, you're assuming Mario and Zelda will have the same number of reps as they did in Brawl.

In my opinion, Pokemon should get 4 reps again, and Fire Emblem should have 3 this time. No more than that, there are other franchises. Some of the fanboys of both franchises don't seem to be able to understand that.

The lifetime sales of the Star Fox series are great than those of Fire Emblem. Plus Star Fox was more relevant during Brawl's development with the release of Command (which the character models were based off of). FE has never made the legendary impact Star Fox did.

And I say four for Mario and Zelda because Mario has covered all major characters, and the Zelda series struggles to find a worthy fourth slot.

I'm willing to bet Mario and Zelda will have 4 and Pokemon might push 5.

Donkey Kong, Kirby, Star Fox and Fire Emblem will have 3 as max.

Metroid, Kid Icarus and Mother will all be good with 2.

Yoshi, Wario, Pikmin and F-Zero will be stuck with 1.

No new series will get more than 1.


That's what I think we will get.
