Favorite Tellius Character Designs?

Recommended Posts

Hope this isn't a topic already.

Out of all the games I think hands down that Tellius had the best character design. The armor looked practical yet unique to each character and they were all distinguishable. I also can't put my finger on it but the designs for each character just seemed right. So which character designs from this saga were your favorites?

I like Ike's Lord design from FE9 the color scheme of olive green with the blue cape just looks good and goes with him really well. I like his base Hero design as well and think it suits him but I'll always like the color scheme of the Lord get up.

Titania is another design I liked aside from being an overall pretty character the cloth under the armor matches real well with the hair while the armor looks like what you would expect of an elite Paladin.

Greil/Gawain is another design I liked as well simple clothing and armor resembling Hero Ike. Fits the part of an aged legendary warrior.

Black Knight. Pretty much the Darth Vader of the series in my opinion. Down right menacing and terrifying and gives the feeling of being one of the four apocalyptic horsemen.

Sigrun and Nephenee. Like the hair color and armor choice for both of these and the way the helmet covers their eye is pretty nice too.

Nailah. Unique one of a kind character cool markings along her body and that eyepatch is killer.

I could go on and on and there's many more I like as well and this is just scraping the surface.

I think Elincia's design is absolutely gorgeous. The vibrancy of her hair and eyes clashing with the white of her skin as well as those exceptionally regal clothes is marvelously captivating.

...That sounded far less creepy in my head, I swear.

Otherwise, I also am a fan of Ike's Hero design (not so much Vanguard, though. A bit over-designed, imo). I also agree with you on Titania. I always found Ashnard's design to be a very effective one for the villain he was. Equal parts menacing and regal. I think Marcia's Radiant Dawn design is incredibly cute, Idunno.

Yeah Elincia's design was done really well in both games I do like her FE10 design a bit more though. The orange dress was a bit much for me. Not a deal breaker by any means just kinda made me think of a pumpkin with the orange then the green hair.

To the surprise of literally no one, the Black Knight's design is my all time favorite design of any FE character.

It's no exaggeration to say the Black Knight is the primary inspiration for my love of armor.

Hey I don't blame you aside from the BK being able to take on your entire army without getting a scratch his design towers over everyone and the amount of armor makes him seem invincible like a tank almost.

Nggh... this is really hard to do. If I am to do a list I think I might end up listing the whole cast =)

But to simply put it, I like all of the designs because they fit their respective characters and classes really well.

I especially adore the armors. To this date, the designs for the Paladins and Generals in Tellius are my favorites in the whole series. And the OP is very correct on how BK looks like Darth Vader. I've always thought the same as well.

I hope Senri Kita does more FE arts! And hopefully return as the character designer for a future game... Luv her arts <3

And I hope the slight fangirlism in this post didn't bother anybody

Ike (especially RD Ike), Elincia (especially RD Elincia), Kieran (both), RD Geoffrey, Fiona, Micaiah, RD Boyd, Ranulf, the laguz's transformed forms, and various others are amazing to me. Jill is a great design too, and so are Zelgius and Black Knight!

Yes, despite that I don't like them as characters, I think RD Geoffrey and Micaiah have great designs. :P

RD Ike is my favorite of all though, and is one reason I'm such a huge fan of him. He's just SEXY.

Skrimir and Caineghis. Dat hair. Dat attire.

Then it's Tanith. Tough Pegasus knight in badass black armor.

Then Elincia because green hair.

  • Jill - In FE10 she's so badass that she doesn't need a helmet anymore and shows me her ponytail of blood

Manith - A pegasus in black armor isn't less badass

Black Knight - "Darth Vader of Fire Emblem"

Oh lord, almost to many to name. I'll give my top 4 (in no specific order)

RDIke: I like both the hero and vanguard designs. I prefer the vanguard design though because it uses more blues and silvers while covering Ike with more armor. The fact that the armor only over his left arm irks me a bit though.

General/Marshall: Favorite General designs in the series as well. Armor looks practical and strong, while also having a cool factor. Add this with awesome color choices, and you get some great looking armor. If only the Generals didn't walk so damn slow.

Rafiel: His design embodies what the herons are. Serene and graceful. The pure white robes laced with gold really and a angelic feel to the character.

Ashunera: Her light blues robes contrast brilliantly with her dawn hair. The way her dress and hair flows really adds a divine aura to her character. I wish we saw more of her in the game.

Damn I forgot to mention those guys. I really hope IS goes back to that design in the future because that was my biggest nitpick with the Awakening designs was how the Knights and Generals looked. I still remember how awesome Gatrie looked when first I promoted him to Marshall.

Ike in Radiant Dawn was great. Not a bishonen, but not some Fist of the North Star bag of muscles either. As a protagonist in a Japanese piece of media, he is very unusual looking in a good way.

Micaiah was no slouch either. I love the fabric and the colors of her clothes. I really like that particular shade of red that she is using. Probably my favourite design in the setting.

I absolutely adore Titania. That armor, the expression... amazing. And her official art in RD looks so freaking badass.

Soren was pretty neat in context. Like, he looks so obviously evil and is willing to side with Daein, and then Shinon and Gatrie turn their back on the crew and then we learn later that there is a spy among the group... It's so inconceivable that Ike would trust Soren as much as he does and it's really fascinating to learn the things about him that Ike knew all the time.and to find out why their interactions actually make sense And his appearance goes a long way to help with that journey.

Also Edward to my own surprise. I just really like the aesthetic of the Dawn Brigade members in general, those clothes, fabric and all that stuff.

Yeah, Ike's non-bishy look in RD is probably a reason why he's not popular in Japan. :(

But it IS probably a reason he's liked as much as he is out west. Many girls out here like a hot muscley guy which Ike can definitely been seen as here, and many guys here like the "cool" vibe Ike can give with his headband, cape, and big sword and all.

Elincia, Micaiah, Nephenee, Sigrun, Mia and RD Mist stand out to me. Vika also stands out by having a rather modern-looking outfit.

But yeah, Senri Kita did an excellent job with the artwork!

The big, fat design of the Generals in Awakening really threw me off. It looked like they were inept and shouldn't be fighting. If they got an awesome redesign, as well as a skill &speed buff, I'd heavily consider reclassing into that.

Senri Kita's artwork is my favorite of the FE games so a lot of the character designs I find to be appealing and/or acceptable.

My particular favorites:

- Jill: nice armor design and I dig the high ponytail as a flier

- Soren: dark and stands out from the initial Greil Mercenaries in how subdued his colors were; it fits his character and history in hindsight

- Mist: despite that she promotes into Valkyrie, her Cleric outfit is different from the usual white robe attire of her class

- (RD) Geoffrey: I do like Geoffrey the man himself in PoR but that green armor with his hair... I'm glad he switched it out

- Elincia: she got even prettier in RD but either one works for me

Otherwise, there's not many I dislike. I guess I just like Senri Kita's artstyle overall.

-Elincia, both games. Especially FE10

-Black Knight. Reasons beyond "Black Knight" are not needed.

-FE9 Ike. Just not FE10.

-Aran & Nephenee. I like Aran way better overall, but they are both awesome looking blue-armored soldiers.

-Haar looks pretty cool with his eyepatch.

I really like laguz designs in general but Ranulf, Tibarn, Janaff, and the Black Dragons are especially good. Other designs I like would be RD Elincia, RD Geoffrey, PoR Ike, and The Black Knight.

Man, it seems like the fanbase is split totally down the middle on PoR Ike and RD Ike. Half prefer the former and half prefer the latter. :P

I personally like both Ike designs. I remember years ago I would've picked PoR Ike over RD Ike, but I think RD Ike has grown on me.

Agree with others that Senri Kita's art is best for FE. As for my favorite designs, I love Nephenee's design. The helmet is a great touch for her reserved personality. Janaff's another favorite, his look perfectly conveys 'mischevious' to me. Also a big fan of Sanaki, Tibarn, Tormod, Sothe, and Titania. And Bastion, can't forget him!

One a side note, does anyone else feel like some of the RD portraits were a little, uh, not good? I haven't played the game in a while but I recall Titania, Soren and Astrid all looking a little swollen or something.

Oh, I like both too, I just love RD Ike more because we finally got to see a muscular manly as heck main character among a bunch of bishies. Hector isn't bishy, but still not as manly as RD Ike imo. And RD Ike is just plain handsome as ever and still has his cool cape and headband. And he gets that badass Vanguard armor. ^^ It looks awesome AND is my favorite color! I admit that Ike wearing a bunch of armor on just one arm rather than both was awkward to me at first, but now I don't mind it. lol

Yeah, I have always thought Astrid and Soren look really creepy in RD but I don't recall Titania being too bad, but I think that the portraits were just in general better in PoR. Although that might just be because I feel like it looked more cell-shaded, and I really like cell-shaded art styles.
