This is a tough choice! All of these guys are great! I think I'd have to go with Gerik, though. They're all great units and I like all of their personalities, but I think I like Gerik's design the most.

 

NOTE:

 

1: A character's starting class determines which list they go on. For prepromotes, what would have been their starting class in their game determines which list they go on. For example, Renault is a Bishop, but his starting class would have been a Monk if he wasn't a prepromote, so he goes on the Monk/Bishop list. Yodel, on the other hand, goes on the Priest/Cleric/Bishop list, he is a Bishop but in Binding Blade Monk was not a class so his starting class would have been a Priest.

 

2: If a character is not playable in the main story, they are not included.

Gerik, but I've only played FE7 and Sacred Stones, and Harken and Gerik always showed up after I had a decent team assembled. Gerik was usable occasionally in my runs of SS, but I still didn't use him much. Swordmasters are better.

I said Raven but it was difficult to pick between him and Greik.

Echidna, shes really cool, and cares about the island prospering, even trying to get Roy's more bulky members to help her out after the Zephiel stuff haha.

Gerik is personally my favourite merc. He's the type of unit that basically cannot turn out bad, even promoting him immediately after you get him and he'll still contribute. Usually turns out to be the mvp of most of my fe8 runs. It also helps that his characterization has him just being someone you can hang out and have a beer with haha.

I've always thought Gerik was really cool. He's a great combat unit and has a good personality.

A though choice for me since I like Dieck, Oujay and Gerik a lot. But I ended up voting for Dieck. He has a great potential as a unit, his personality is strong, amazing design I enjoy the fanservice and good supports. Sorry Oujay and Gerik! But Dieck wins this round.

Dieck. His conversation with Clarine was priceless - especially the B-Level Support!!!

Dieck "Fine. Well, Miss Clarine, I don't really approve of girls going around chasing after guys' asses."
Clarine "What!? You have such a foul mouth...!"
Dieck "Exactly. You don't want to be around someone like me, now, do you?"

I chose Griek...but it wasn't easy. Dieck and Raven are pretty dang potent as well as interesting, but Griek gets it because out of all of them...I usually have to stop him from killing all the enemies more than the other two......from near the getgo(when I first get him)!

Dieck. His conversation with Clarine was priceless - especially the B-Level Support!!!

Dieck "Fine. Well, Miss Clarine, I don't really approve of girls going around chasing after guys' asses."
Clarine "What!? You have such a foul mouth...!"
Dieck "Exactly. You don't want to be around someone like me, now, do you?"

Such a beautiful person, ain't he? :hat:

You can't help but love the guy!

Ranking as follows:

Gerik > Dieck > That's so Raven > Harken

Unranked: O.J. & Knuckles

Gerik is awesome from the moment he steps up, on either route. A strong, seasoned fighter, whom you still get a choice of promotions? And he has great bases, good growths, and supports aplenty? Yes, please! Probably my favorite instance of the Ogma archetype, too (although I like Ogma-classic, as well as...

Dieck! A reliable unit from the moment you get him, if not the most interesting. He's got the con (and bod) to handle axes, too!

Raven starts out pretty average, but his great growths make him a solid choice. He also has good supports and an interesting backstory. I guess I'm a little salty at the fact that I killed him (and screwed myself out of re-recruiting Lucius) on my first FE7 playthrough.

Harken isn't bad, honestly. But he's a bit situational - you have to deny yourself Karel to get him, and if you've raised Raven up, he's probably not worth it. I kind of like him, especially for the brave sword he brings.

And I haven't used either of the two potential heroes in FE6 not named Dieck, so I won't be ranking them.

Harken, for being the only hero who is also a knight, for joining with a B rank in axes, and because his portrait is so handsome when he smiles.

I like everyone in this category though, even Ross and Garcia who don't really count.

Throwing my two cents.

Gerik- Arguably the best. Good bases, con, and comes with a promotion item to boot.

Dieck- Another good base merc, though his growth rates are a bit Jaigen. Get used to looking at that ten speed for a while.

Echidna- Super biased love for her design aside, she's meh. Also IS are bastards for giving her a steel axe with 9 con.

Oujay- Uhhhh Oujay... Well if you want to raise 'em. There's the islands. Suffers from the same low con as Echidna though.

Raven- Raven is secretly a gambler. Unfortunately the RNG likes to play with fixed dice.

Harken- Why is there no love for Harken? Especially Hard Mode Harken? What you want Karel? Get outta here!
