now that s/he's here, Corrin might as well stay.

i have never understood and will never understand this mindset

We've got a unique moveset that we'd be losing

corrin's not a paragon of uniqueness at all, he recycles moves from the other fe characters

for example, his down tilt is literally ikes, his up air is literally marth's
the final verse is sung

It's ok if you don't understand the mindset, but I'm sure that you can understand plenty of people feel that way? If a character is already made, so there's no good reason not to leave that character in for people who like it. The work is already done on the character for the most part. It's much easier to bring back a character than to create a new one. You wouldn't be ushering in new characters to cut Corrin from the game, you'd just be taking a mostly-finished character (that would only need touching up for a new game) and throwing him/her out. It's a waste and a shame.

And yeah sure some characters have functionally similar moves. Recycling assets is a completely reasonable design decision for the game's creators when we're looking at such a content-packed series, and what's important is that they do it creatively. For example, ok Corrin has Ike's dtilt and Marth's uair. Well, who else does? Or heck, who else has Corrin's neutral B for that matter? Even if the moves aren't all unique, the combination of them still only belongs to Corrin, and playing Corrin is going to be different than playing Ike or Marth. Heck, playing LUCINA can be different from playing Marth, because even with all of the same moves she still has some different strengths and weaknesses. And everyone is going to be someone's favorite character. There are Corrin and Lucina mains. People who love these characters. I actually enjoy playing as all of them.

But you're also stripping the characters down and looking at them differently than how people who like them might be looking at it. I know for some people you can look at Corrin and go, "Oh Corrin isn't even a dragon. The "dragon" form looks more like a llama f***ed a deer and then Arceus f***ed a motorcycle helmet and then the llama/deer and Arceus/motorcycle helmet hybrid baby abominations both grew up and f***ed one another to create this monstrosity. And a character with a lance could do the same stuff." And that stuff may all be well and true or at the very least somewhat justifiable! But to other people maybe Corrin is actually cool. Maybe they LIKE the fact that Corrin can just grow wings in the middle of a move or turn his/her arm into whatever they want. The flaming chainsaw sword might sound dumb to some people, but to others it's awesome. This stuff is all aesthetic sure, but that does matter. Animations might just be frosting on a cake that doesn't fundamentally change said cake, but good frosting can make a bland cake better. Plus the functions really do match up with the animations so it's really ok?

The fact that there are people who enjoy a characters like Corrin is a good enough reason to keep them around, in my opinion. The fact that some people don't enjoy characters like that isn't really a reason to get rid of them. Corrin's presence isn't hurting anyone. It should be easier for people to get over a character being added to a game than to get over a character being removed from it.

We really didn't need Corrin though... 6 FE chars even where FE is at now is too much. 5 is fine but six...?

Like I used to unironically love Corrin in Smash days but Fates ruined them for me...
