I like to change it a little, but there's admittedly many units I'm too biased to use.

I like to use everyone at least once. (as in, for the whole run)

Marcus is the answer for anything except "best unit who isn't Marcus," but even then he is a strong contender. - PokeAMon

I only use units who a see value in and are aesthetically pleasing.

i.e. I will not be using Virion because he does not catch my eye and he is an Archer. I did not use Moulder in FE8 because he doesn't look good and he is a Cleric (a class I'm not TOO fond of).

I generally use most of the same units most of the time, but I do tend to change it up every playthrough. I'll also use theme playthroughs now and again, like my current FE12 game is almost exclusively Paladins.

I try to use everyone at least once. I also try to make sure everyone is at or near the same level, so I have to let the pre-promotes rust for a while.

I use everyone evenly, but only in games where you can do so (Sacred Stones, Awakening). Otherwise I just don't play because I dislike being forced to choose my favorites and deal with limited experience.

"I use everyone and they must all be max level by the end of the game, no exception."

I generally do this :P- Although I usually normal level my main guys, and then I'd use a quick leveling cheat with Action Replay or something to get everyone else up to speed, that way at the end, I have a gallery of KILLING MACHINES(with the exceptions of a few prepromotes, but whatevsies).

Although, I did it legitimately in SS, and I have the feeling I will in this one too.

So far, I've liked to use everyone and max them all out, barring a few characters here and there that I will NEVER use due to my personal hatred of them. This game will be no exception, I'll use everyone BUT Ricken, Riviera, and Yen'fay.

I typically have a core group of units I like to always use, and then a few outliers I can switch when I feel like doing something different. Like bringing in Ilyana to replace a laguz royal in RD when I already have quite a few magic units just so I can use every SS tome

1st playthrough - Use who I like, unless they require heavy grinding,
2nd playthrough onwards (for games with support conversations) - Switch around to unlock as much "A" support conversations as I can in a playthrough.
2nd playthrough (for games without support conversations) - Use whoever is most efficient at clearing the hardest mode... and I usually stop there.

Where's the "I use the units I like"?
I mainly just use a few of a certain class. For example, I don't use too many archers or cavaliers and if I get a new unit I like, I might replace one of my older units.
