They are good and I use them and anyone saying otherwise has yet to mature when it comes to Fire Emblem.
this. altough i find babying units that are weak to see them as monsters later is fun, i know that many prepromos are awesome. --- Confession Time! jRPGs are pretty much the best thing that ever happened to Video Games - Soanevalcke6

Pent was really the only one that I liked. Also, the Greil Mercenaries in RD all came technically as prepromoted so...there was that. --- R.I.P. Eddie Guerrero 1967-2005 R.I.P. Mitsuharu Misawa 1962-2009

Yeah, in many cases there's good reason use at least a couple of them(Since there's very little way every unpromoted unit you'll use will get enough EXP to all be better than a pre-promote) .
I see a lot of claims that they're useless but really it's a fallacy like how Jegan(or insert pre-promote) is considered a bad unit because he's outclassed by the best units in the game.

Some, like Ced are great, and Jeigans are good Meatshields and then there's Frederick Emblem.
Others like Say'ri, and the man himself Hannibal, are wondrous candidates for "General Hannibal's Award of General Uselessness." --- I'm a Thinker, I could Break it Down. I'm a Shooter, Trust me Baby! As we jump out, feel it in the will! http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8572968/1/Project-Ignition

Everyone have seen my post and saw how much of a prepromote fanboy I am, especially those GBA broken Palladin trio(quads in FE8)
Also FE1 Wendell, Pent, Percival, Harken, Isadora etc
As far as it goes, I used them mostly for aesthetic reason, or I simply like them. Marcus, for example or Duessel for another is satisfying to use because of their cooler potraits. Then there's something like say.... Dagda who I actually liike

All the time. Used Frederick a lot then reclassed him into Paladin for awesome pair up bonuses, replaced Lon'qu entirely with Say'ri, and I never once touched Nowi since recruiting her but am kicking ass with Tiki. --- Your twisted logic is that of an immature, egotistic brat! - Naoto Shirogane
