I just realized something *spoilers*

You can potentially get a lot of your units, including Chrom, killed in the arena battle with Marth aka Lucina. Wouldn't it be very counterproductive for Lucina to be killing off her father's army, even if she's just trying to "test" them or whatever her reason was?

Then again, I didn't actually get anyone killed in that fight, so maybe it works differently. I doubt it though.

The arena fight itself has quite a bit of plotholes surrounding it. Best not to think too much on it.

Plot wise I dont think people in the arena die. Im pretty sure your units still will though because otherwise you'd be playing casual for a chapter

In Fire Emblem the AI doesn't represent the enemy trying to strategize within the context of the world. It represents a "player" like you who's trying to make you reset the game by killing one of your units, it doesn't care about anything but that.

I don't think IS put much thought into AI at all considering that Hard and Lunatic just add numeric difficulty, while Lunatic+ adds skills that wouldn't be out of place on a boss that was the only thing on the map in most SRPGs, on multiple units with insane stats.

They should have done a Final Fantasy-esque thing where she'll attack everybody but Chrom. The random soldiers would be able to attack him. Kinda like how Rude won't attack Tifa in FF7.

But that's wrong

She keeps attacking Chrom in cutscenes though...
