Why does people think that 3-4 reps is too much for Fire Emblem?

The series is seriously becoming more popular, I don't see why there can't be 4...


Because other, more worthy series, most notably Metroid and DK, have fewer reps than that.


Well, those series, mostly Metroid, haven't been growing much lately, other than Metroid Other M and DK Country Returns, while Fire Emblem got Awakening recently, and now it's even getting a crossover title...


That still doesn't change that it's a less worthy series, especially considering almost all potential reps for it are swordsman.

Hector, Lilina, Micaiah, in a way Sothe, Chrom, even some bad guys like Limstella or Nergal could work :p

What does a series' arbitrary "worth" have to do with its main characters being similar in fighting styles?

Chrom's the only one with a chance of getting in Smash. And even then, he's far less important to Nintendo than most other potential reps from other series.

And do you honestly expect anyone on that list other Chrom to be playable?

Well, Ice Climbers and Mr. Game and Watch got in, and they're OLD characters, so why couldn't other old characters have a chance?

None of the others are the main character of the one game where they're not merely cameos. (Micaiah plays second fiddle to Ike.) None of them are notably popular either.

I don't really think R.O.B was popular either >_<
And Lyn's not the main character of her game, yet she got in before Eliwood :p

R.O.B. was very important to Nintendo though. Lyn was merely an assist trophy. Every character who has gotten into Smash in the past as a playable character is more important to Nintendo than anyone you suggested.
