  1. The original post has now been updated with polls for the second generation characters! Like the first generation, these polls come in three flavors: Shared Children (female Kana, male Kana, Shigure, Dwyer, Sophie, Midori) Hoshidan Children (Shiro, Kiragi, Asugi, Selkie, Hisame, Mitama, Caeldori, Rhajat) Nohrian Children (Siegbert, Forrest, Ignatius, Velouria, Percy, Ophelia, Soleil, Nina) Once again, happy polling! I'll share the results once I get a significant number of votes.
  2. The results for the last three polls: Hoshidan Girls Nohrian Girls Bonus Ducks Since only the first 100 votes are ever shown, the results from the other polls are outdated as of now, so I'll try to fix that at some point. I'll also try to get to the second generation eventually.
  3. I'm don't think anything needs to be changed significantly, but... -Give the older sisters and Azura unique weapons. Azura's would be Revelation-exclusive. -This. -This too. -Related to the above, let Flora (for Conquest and Revelation) and Scarlet (for Birthright) marry freely instead of only being able to marry Corrin. -Make Lilith playable and give her more plot importance. If Flora and Scarlet need to remain Corrinsexual for whatever reason, then she can marry freely so one can get all the kids. -Give everyone ages. It would save us some time thinking and arguing about it...
  4. How did this thread turn into a discussion of who needs therapy anyway? Maybe I should make another thread devoted to that topic... Anyway, here are the results to the Nohrian bachelors poll.
  5. Sigurd confirmed for Smash? We still don't have enough Fire Emblem characters. In all seriousness though, this doesn't mean that Roy and Sigurd will actually end up appearing in Fates. It is curious though, especially since Robin has a Fates sprite but doesn't appear on any of that merchandise.
  6. It hasn't actually reached 100 votes yet, but here are the results for the Hoshidan bachelors poll! Do these results surprise you, or did you expect them? Are you happy with these results? Feel free to share what you think!
  7. Ready for round two? Tribes and other countries: how do they work? Miscellaneous Character Facts: More Revelation/Hidden Truths stuff: Maybe I really should write a book of my headcanon? Next time I'll probably discuss the lives and times of the First Dragons.
  8. I split this into several different categories for length and spoilers. I think that remaining faithful to canon is important. The royals of Hoshido and Nohr and their issues: Revelation and invisible things: Hidden Truths, Hidden Headcanons: If I had known that my headcanon would be so long, I would have written a book... Also #PraiseSaizo I guess.
  9. You know, I wonder how a joke about Corrin's underwear somehow turned into a discussion of double standards between Corrin's genders, female Corrin's perspective among fans, and finally Leo and Takumi's issues and the ethics of shipping Corrin with them. And also Ace Attorney. This is true, but odd coming from someone who shamelessly ships Corrin with a certain blue-haired, 'troubled but cute' songstress.
  10. This doesn't have anything to do with gameplay or the plot, but it's something I've been curious about nonetheless. I've heard that Azura's Japanese roster entry says that she has the worst bedhead in the army (the English version instead says that the poor girl is a restless sleeper). But in the English version, Silas is the one with the worst bedhead. Was Silas's "fun fact" different in the Japanese version, or am I just misinformed here?
  11. Since the shared characters poll has over 100 votes now, I'll go ahead and post the results for that. Due to corporate greed only the results of the first 100 votes are shown, but I might try to show the rest at a later date. Interesting things to note: Are these results surprising, or did you see them coming from a mile away? Share your thoughts! I'll get to the results of the other polls later, and be sure to vote in them if you haven't already!
  12. Personally speaking, I'm the one who made these pairing polls in the first place, so I think that I have the full authority to declare that Corrin/Azura is canon. Speaking of which, out of 92 voters, only four of male Corrin's potential suitors got more than three votes. Does anyone want to guess who they are?
  13. I'll probably end up giving some insight into the results when there are around 100 votes for each poll. Right now there are around 80 for the shared characters and 40-50 for the rest. Several patterns have already shown up but I still want more votes to be more accurate. I would also appreciate it if someone shared the polls on reddit or something... I hindsight I probably should've added something like that, but I'll just keep them separate for convenience. If you don't have any preferences, then you should just skip the question so you don't mess with the data. I'll probably get to the second generation eventually. It didn't take too long, actually; copying and pasting is your friend. I did have to look up what the Revelation-exculsive pairings were, but in total the whole thing took around 2 hours.
  14. Be sure to waste your time and read this post before selecting your choices! Now, humble reader, you are probably wondering who would dare talk about pairing popularity. And your concern would not be unfounded. While thinking of pairings to use for my fanfics, I found myself at a roadblock. How was I ever to determine which pairings are Debeste... err, the best? Then I discovered the most obvious answer: popular opinion! As demonstrated by the Wonderful 101, any problem can be solved with numbers. With your help, I can solve a problem which you probably don't care about at all! But more importantly, this is also a project to determine what pairings are most popular, especially since we already have a thread for least favorite pairings. "Golly, Mr. Light, where do I fit into this?" you're probably thinking. All you have to do, dear reader, is to choose who the most special of someones is for each character! In other words, you must select who the best romantic partner is for each character. But not who the best is for stats; leave your eugenics at home! You also need not judge pairings solely by their supports, general compatibility can also be taken into account, or how much a pairing makes sense based on the plot. For the sake of my cheapness and your inconvenience, the polls come in five fabulous flavors, plus a bonus! Each poll covers eight characters, and they can be found here: Shared characters (male Corrin, female Corrin, Azura, Felicia, Jakob, Silas, Kaze, Mozu) (results) Hoshidan Males (Ryoma, Takumi, Saizo, Azama, Hinata, Subaki, Hayato, and Kaden) (results) Hoshidan Females (Hinoka, Sakura, Kagero, Setsuna, Oboro, Hana, Orochi, and Rinkah) (results) Nohrian Scum Males (Xander, Leo, Laslow, Odin, Niles, Arthur, Benny, and Keaton) (results) Nohrian Females (Camilla, Elise, Peri, Selena, Beruka, Effie, Nyx, and Charlotte) (results) Bonus Ducks (Scarlet, Flora, captured bosses, NPCs) (results) But don't think that these polls are exclusive to the residents of this humble forest! In the event that the citizens of Begnion accuse us of assassinating their apostle, you should share these polls with your friends, or your enemies, or your friends' enemies! ...You can also share it on other sites, too. Getting through all the questions might take some time, but try to answer all of them. The fate of no one in particular depends on it! I think that's everything... wait, I forgot to make a Frozen reference! But I guess that can wait for another time. Until then, happy polling! I'll be sure to post the results whenever they become relevant. EDIT: Now featuring the next generation! Shared Children (female Kana, male Kana, Shigure, Dwyer, Sophie, Midori) Hoshidan Children (Shiro, Kiragi, Asugi, Selkie, Hisame, Mitama, Caeldori, Rhajat) Nohrian Children (Siegbert, Forrest, Ignatius, Velouria, Percy, Ophelia, Soleil, Nina)
  15. If you're respecting disrespect, does that mean you're disrespectful?

  16. Obligatory (warning, potential nightmares lie ahead):
  17. Alternatively, you can have people list their top five favorite/least favorite characters in order and then rank everyone by position, so most favorite gets five points, second favorite gets four points, etc. It would also give a more accurate view of how popular characters are since more of them are taken into account when voting. And should we include NPCs too?
  18. I wouldn't be opposed to a Sin & Punishment character assuming that they would have a unique moveset. But you really shouldn't count Ganondorf, Kirby, Greninja and Mega Man as sword users. Isn't Corrin sort of like that already?
  19. I didn't know that the poll was still open before, so I voted for Izana, Azura obviously, and Shigure obviously again as my favorites in their respective categories. I don't really dislike anyone, so I'm not going to say who I voted for the least favorites. I've heard that the M!Corrin is more mellow and dorky while F!Corrin is more peppy and playful. But I'm also pretty sure that female Corrin is more popular than the male because of her thighs. Especially in Smash. How can one not like his incredibly enthusiastic "I WIN!"
  20. Azura isn't number one? Well, I suppose there's no accounting for taste. I'm not terribly surprised that Leo is first, nor F!Corrin placing higher than M!Corrin (though I like the latter for how much of a dork he is). I wonder how many differences there are with this poll and the "popular" opinion? Becides the fact that Azura is clearly the best girl, of course.
  21. Again, everyone probably assumed that Sumeragi had an affair with Mikoto that produced Corrin between Hinoka and Takumi's births, while Sumeragi was still married to Ikona. None of the knowledgeable parties rejected this belief, probably so Corrin and Mikoto would be more easily accepted by Hoshido's population, and because Corrin's actual father didn't want anyone to know about him. Mikoto's letter only exists because Mikoto foretold that Corrin and Hinoka/Takumi/Sakura would eventually develop unsibling-like feelings for eachother (it's suggesting that Mikoto, being a Vallite royal, inherited said ability from Anankos). It seems strange, then, that Sumeragi would somehow predict that Ryoma would eventually fall in love with his younger sister and tell him that they weren't related, but only in that one particular reality where Ryoma would eventually fall in love with his younger sister. From Corrin and Sakura's S support: Sakura: I know what you're going to say. That we're half-siblings. But...what if we weren't?
  22. Leo mentions in his support with Elise that Garon "changed" after Arete's death. We don't know the circumstances behind Arete's death other than the fact that it was to "protect Nohr" (according to Azura) and she activated the "don't talk about Valla" curse, so it is possible that Garon's corruption/possession did have something to do with it. If I recall correctly, polygamy (or concubinage, whichever's relevant) wasn't uncommon in feudal Japan. We don't know if Mikoto was "officially" a concubine, though, and all the royals we see only ever have one spouse (as Sumeragi and Garon only remarried after the deaths of their respective first wives). Since everyone except Ryoma thought that Corrin was Sumeragi's biological child, including Corrin's siblings, it is likely that Mikoto being Sumeragi's "other woman" was the common opinion even if it might not be true. No one seems to think much of it though, so it probably isn't too uncommon. And all the Hoshidans had to do was look over at Nohr and think, "Hey, at least our king didn't have children with at least eight different women." We don't actually know the exact number of children Garon had, but it is probably a similarly large number.
  23. Even if he did cheat on Ikona with Mikoto (though there's no indication that he acted on his feelings for her before Ikona's death), Sumeragi still has nothing on Garon. I'm actually more curious as to why Garon decided to choose Arete as his second wife despite probably having a dozen concubines at the time. It's not like their marriage stopped him from having more children with other women, since Leo and Elise (among others, probably) were born after Azura was integrated into Nohr. Maybe he just has a thing for singers? Though my theory is that Arete didn't really mind his promiscuity because she mainly married him in hopes that her ties to Garon would protect her and Azura from Anankos, which obviously didn't work out. On a non-blue haired singer related note, this thread made me realize that I like complicated plots. It's more interesting and fun to put the threads together. No wonder I like Kingdom Hearts and BlazBlue.
  24. The ancient texts straight up say (well, in dragon language) that the Hoshidan royals are all children of Sumeragi and his first wife Ikona. Since Sakura's supports with Corrin imply that she was already born when Corrin was kidnapped (namely, she heard rumors that Nohr was planning on kidnapping her instead), it can be assumed that Ikona died shortly after Sakura's birth. As for Mikoto, Sumeragi mentions that he fell in love with her immediately, but he never says when he married her. It seems likely that he let Mikoto and Corrin live in the castle with his family, and only married Mikoto after Ikona's death. And for the younger princesses, it seems that Sakura and Elise are around the same age, but Sakura is older by a year or so. It is also possible that Elise was born shortly before Azura was kidnapped, rather than after. It seems to be common knowledge in-universe that Mikoto is not the mother of the Hoshidan royals, even though the player is never formally told this. From an in-story perspective, Corrin probably learned this in the period between chapters 4 and 5.
  25. Angry Azura is glorious. She will sing for us mortals the song of RAGE. She'd probably make even Oboro feel inadequate. Guess that Dwyer must really not like posture. But how did he end up in a tree...?
