Would you support a chubby playable character in Fire Emblem?

I liked Meg and used her a lot. Sure, her start is rough, but she caps certain stats really early allowing you to abuse BEXP and turn her into a monster.


That's good to hear.

That pink Sword Marshal is the cutest thing EVER.

well there was this girl in radiant dawn

and nobody cared about or used her


Oh hey, yeah, that's a chubby girl.

Was she bad? Did she have poor stats? Were her personality and eating habits jokes? That's the kinda thing I'd hope to avoid in the future.



she had arguably the worst stats for a "general" (marshall whatever). the in-game joke with her was she was always chasing after this serious skilled swordmaster proposing to him and calling him "snuukums" while the guy obviously hated it the entire game

although you can make him "like" her if you build support together with her

Don't forget that girl's father, Brom: http://images.wikia.com/fireemblem/images/6/61/BromPoR.jpg

Meg was just a pretty poor unit. Low base stats, bad growths for a knight, surrounded by multiple better units, and in all likelihood made quickly obsolete by Brom and Gatrie.


I looked her up. In the very least, it looks like she wasn't treated as a joke, nor focused on for her size within the game itself. I appreciate that. It's a shame her stats weren't good, but that's a legitimate reason to dislike a unit.

But c'mon...

ADORABLE.


It's especially great because in the final chapters, you can have her, standing at what I assume is around 5 feet, holding a sword around her height and fighting dragons who are twice her size. It's fantastic.

Yeah, but you could do that with most units. Her problem was being surrounded by multiple other units that were in the same boat - adding yet another unit that needed to be protected, and against laguz that she couldn't even scratch, no less, made even getting her to the point where you could dump Bonus EXP into her a major chore.

It didn't hep Meg's case that she was even more of a joke character than Oliver.

OT, I will never actually identify with whatever MU we get, so if a fat character makes the best children or has the biggest gameplay advantage I'll support them.

I still don't understand the Meg hate. Sure, she isn't your conventional knight/general, and you need to baby her a little, but she's still a great unit.

Babying and great unit don't belong in the same sentence.

Meg's best asset is her potential and she has the most of it amongst the dawn brigade. The problem is that she comes at such an inopportune moment that you just end up not giving a crap. if she had grown to be a Marshall, she would be one of the strongest in the game. The biggest leap is that gap. If you are willing to sacrifice most of the Dawn Brigade for her, go ahead (I would actually recommend it in the long run since they are ALL horrible units).
