Super Smash Bros. Fire Emblem Cape Designs

Recommended Posts

So since we now have yet another Fire Emblem character with a cape my interest in the cape designs made me want to make a video on it but when I did some research I did not find that much information so I'd like to ask you guys what some of these symbols/insignias are if they have any meaning at all. I will also add the information in this topic.

Marth's

The symbol of the Archanea nation.

Ike's

Greil Mercenaries.

Roy's

Elibe's Fire Emblem.

Lucina's

Mark Of Naga.

Two Nagas.

Three Grima eyes.

I hope someone knows what these symbols are supposed to represent!

(Also sorry if there is already a post like this I created this account today for the purpose of posting this thread)

They look purely decorative, but knowing the detail they put into these games, they'res probably a story behind them. I also never knew that Lucina's cape changes with the color swaps.

Ike's symbol is the crest for the Greil Mercenaries. It doesn't appear often, so not many people know about it.

For one, I think it appears in the Bonus Exp display.

Roy's symbol is the real mystery though.

I do know it appears in the opening of Binding Blade if you stare hard.

Personally, I thought it might be the Fire Emblem...

That it does. It also is featured on Oscar and Titania's third tier designs in RD.

Huh... I had no idea about Lucina's cape either.

Roy's is probably this:

but I have no idea what it's supposed to be. It very well could be Elibe's Fire Emblem, but I don't really know.

Actually, I'm not 100% sure what the symbol on Marth's cape is based on.

For reference, you can see the crests for Altea and Archanea in the old TCG:

Marth

Linde

It's hard to tell, but I have bigger images of the crests somewhere and I don't think they match.

Were the crests redesigned in the remakes or something? I honestly can't remember o__o

EDIT

It is. I have the full symbol ripped somewhere.

If you have VBA, you can disable the layers, I believe.

Wow, I can't believe I did not know that. I thought it was a new design based on the banner of Galia. Well, that still explains were Greil got the idea for the Tiger in the first place.

Btw, the banner in question as seen on the Tellius Worldmap:

That would make sense, honestly. Remakes tend to take liberties from time to time with that kind of thing.

Yeah, I recall the symbol on Ike's cape appearing in his games somewhere. But the others sans Lucina's Exalt mark on hers, I never did know where they were from. :P

I guess. Though I don't remember the Altean crest showing up anywhere in Shadow Dragon at all. And even if it did, Marth probably had that same crest on his cape in Brawl, which was before either of the DS games.

Be sure to post the full symbol if you can find it :3

And for some of the symbols (like Marth's) they probably just looked at the fire emblem games for inspiration.

I'd like to thank all of you since I got such a quick response!
