Chrom sure likes to stab his sword into the ground.

Doesn't he know that can dull the blade? It reminds me of Ike's taunt from Brawl.

In Ike's defense, he was using a blade blessed by the goddess that probably wouldn't dull any :P

I'm more concerned with the fact that if Chrom dies his sword somehow lands perfectly into the ground. O.o

It's funny how common this is in games/movies.

I know it's common, it's just that it seems so... unnatural. It just seems extra odd to me.

In certain cultures, planting your sword in the ground was a signal that you were giving it up for other businesses.

But in others, it was that the battle - was over!

This topic seems oddly familiar...

Anyways, like I said. I can't help but wonder how the hell the blade travels with him if his sword is in the ground when the battle begins and its put back into the ground when it's finished.

It is a bit silly. That trope was all over Greil's fight against the Black Knight. Casually tossed swords became stuck deeply into logs, the ground.
