It's kinda amusing that those were the rest of the world's introduction to Fire Emblem battles. Stuff like the Generals throwing their axes at their enemies, the Paladins' horses running in place before charging the enemy, Sages throwing runes everywhere, Mercenaries jumping around like they want to be in a platformer, and the Myrmidoms and Swordmasters becoming sword Saiyans.

I liked 'em.
A Lodestar's a Lodestar, but the Care Package could be anything! It could even be a Lodestar! You know how much we've wanted one of those!

Generals can throw their axes in any games.

As for your question, I think they're overrated, tbh.

I enjoyed them. The general animations were my favorite. Loved how they seemed to actually slice into an enemy and get stuck there.

Meh.

Even though PoR's animations haven't aged as well, I thought the GBA ones looked dorky and underwhelming in comparison on first impression since I went back to FE7/8 after starting with 9.

Some of them are good, but they're overhyped.

This is probably the nostalgia talking but I loved them. Characters seemed to have good weight to them and it gave the game some character.

loved General chain weapons, throw and yank back; and the terrain shook when they moved too

and who can forget the Hero's crit animation, that shield toss

and if I recall right, the Brigand would yell if they got a crit
