I think that goes for a lot of people, Fieldy

People were promised a badass dragon with a chainsaw

what they actually got was a worthless mary sue

They were also promised fanservice.
They got an ad that they have to pay for. -.-

Also, having a unique moveset never stopped Saks from removing characters before.
Why should Corrin be exempt? Because he's from one of Saks' pet series?

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

i have never understood and will never understand this mindset


Mostly on the theory, "why bother making something to only throw it away later"

None of the characters who have been cut were cut for reasons outside of technical/development issues.
Not counting Snake because, Konami is a bad company, and we don't talk about Wolf.

-snipped- The fact that there are people who enjoy a characters like Corrin is a good enough reason to keep them around, in my opinion.


While I do agree, I don't think that changes the fact that Corrin's moveset isn't terribly unique. Sure it's got it's own thing going, but it's not wildly original. Just a bunch more generic sword swings to add to the roster.

I feel like Roy can get some leeway for basically being what got people into Fire Emblem, even moreso than Marth. On top of that, this was Fire Emblem's first appearance in Smash, and VERY many people's first introduction to the series.

- Was added in the final pack despite Sakurai having gone on record stating the rest of the DLC will be fanservice.

- And is a promotion for a series well-promoted as is.


Corrin was actually popular in Japan beforehand when Fates originally came out. There was a popularity poll for Fates, and Corrin (f) placed first in females and (m) in Fifth. The game was only out in japan, so he could very well consider that popularity/ Fanservice given Fates sold fairly well in Japan. Then again, pretty sure he tried to say Nintendo asked him to add Corrin.

More over, I've never understood the complaint about advertisement. Sure you can say you don't like it or whatever, but why count it as a negative? Especially for a character like Cloud, who was very popular and well received, even if he was revealed around time for FFVII remake, still very well received. All three of the final DLC characters were advertising, with Bayo also having the guise of being the Ballot Winner as well.

Corrin was unnecessary and are nowhere near the same as Marth and Roy/.

I hope you guys are enjoying the conversation. Someone very close to me enjoys playing Corrin, and I play female Corrin sometimes, so that's naturally part of why I wouldn't want the character cut.
Why do people waste so much time talking about things they don't like? They should just talk with like minded people about things they really enjoy!

By that logic, that's the only reason Robin has fans...

Use your freaking head.

Male Robin and Female Robin are roughly equal in popularity.

Female Corrin is much more popular than Male Corrin.

Source: FE Heroes Choose Your Legends poll.

It's pretty obvious honestly.

Only rabid corrin fanboys would deny female corrin being a 6/10 is the only reason they have fans

while loudly exclaiming they play the female version

The hypocrisy of fates subhumans is truly next level

Funny thing is, CYL pretty much proved this.

EDIT: That was already said. I'm late, lol.
The impossible is possible! All you gotta do is make it so!
