I feel like you'd really enjoy the series of polls I did a while ago http://serenesforest.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=42905



Allen vs Lance vs Marcus vs Zealot vs Treck vs Noah vs Perceval



I'd have to say the overall winner is probably Perceval. I like the designs of Allen, Lance, Noah, and Perceval a lot, Noah and Perceval are probably the two I like the most as characters, and Allen, Lance, and Perceval are the ones I like the best as units. So, overall...Perceval.




Wolt vs Dorothy vs Klein vs Igrene



Wolt and Klein are my two favorites here, I think. I like them both as characters and units, and I like their designs. Klein might have a very slight edge, though.




Sue vs Shin vs Dayan



I like 'em all about the same, I suppose. I guess Sue and Shin are the two best units, and I suppose I like Sue the best in terms of design. I suppose Sue'd be the overall winner.




Bors vs Wendy vs Barth vs Douglas



Douglas.




Niime vs Sophia vs Raigh



Raigh is probably my favorite as a unit and for design, and he and Sophia are my favorites in terms of character. So I suppose Raigh'd be the overall winner.




Lugh vs Lilina vs Hugh



Lilina is my favorite character of them, but as a unit Lugh might have a slight edge, and I like all three of their designs. I think Lilina wins because she's my favorite character.




Ellen vs Saul vs Clarine vs Cecilia vs Yodel



Cecilia wins all categories, although I'm not sure she and Clarine should be in the same categories as the others.




Chad vs Astore vs Cath



Cath sucks, she's out automatically. As a unit all of them serves their purpose, so I guess it comes down to design and character...in which case, Astore wins.




Rutger vs Fir vs Karel



Karel wins in terms of design and character, but as a unit I'd say Rutger.




Bartre vs Geese vs Gonzales vs Lott vs Wade vs Garret



I'd say Bartre wins each category. I've always liked him a lot.




Dieck vs Oujay vs Echidna



Dieck is a cool character, and probably the best unit. I like Oujay's design the best.




Zeiss vs Milady



Milady!




Shanna vs Tate vs Juno



Tate wins all categories, although Shanna is a great unit too. Tate is like Fiora, she's a character I feel I can actually relate to on some levels, and I really like that. Tate's awesome.




Lalum vs Elphin



They're both kinda the same as units, and for design I guess I like both equally. I suppose Elphin would win though, I like his character more.




Thoughts on Merlinus?



He's pretty cool, but he's better as a unit in FE 7/Blazing Sword.




Thoughts on Fae?



Fae is pretty awesome.




Thoughts on Roy?



Roy is my third-favorite character in the entire series! So...I really like him!

Alen vs Lance vs Marcus vs Zealots vs Trec vs Noah vs Percival

Alen. In my current playthrough I've described him as having enough strength to bench press Dieck while Dieck is bench pressing Alen's horse.

Wolt vs Dorothy vs Klein vs Igrene

Igrene. Purely because of her support with Astore. I don't typically like archers and thus don't use them.

Sue vs Sin vs Dayan

Sue. She makes for a lovely dodge tank.

Bors vs Wendy vs Barth vs Douglass

Bors. He turned out pretty useful in early game for me before I suddenly had to worry about completing chapters in set amounts of turns.

Niime vs Sophia vs Raigh

I can't stand dark magic users- never have, likely never will. I like my mages fast and dodgy, thank you very much. So, of these three, Raigh, because he's Nino's son.

Lugh vs Lilina vs Hugh

Lillina, no question. I got ridiculously lucky with her speed growths so she can reliably double attack all the things. I have dubbed her the Blazing Scourge

Ellen vs Saul vs Clarine vs Cecillia vs Jodel

Clarine. She's amusing, she got good magic growths, and through some dedicated grinding became my first promoted unit (at level twenty, no less). Saul lost my respect when he refused to grow in magic for fourteen levels straight.

Chad vs Astore vs Cath

Astore. I just like the guy. I'm keeping him in my active roster as a fighting unit and feeding him every stat boosting item I come across to make up for the fact that he has hit level twenty but can't promote. And he would have made such a nice assassin too :(

Rutger vs Fir vs Karel

Rutger. Nothing can touch him and with the right supports and weapon his critical rate is insane. Plus I've got a soft spot for vengeance crazed killers in my RPGs.

Bartre vs Geese vs Gonzales vs Lot vs Wade vs Garret

Who? I also don't typically like axe wielders. I can't really give an opinion here since I haven't used any of these guys.

Deke vs Ogier vs Ekhidna

Dieck (or Deke). He's a tank who crits like a myrmidon.

Zeiss vs Milady

Haven't actually recruited Zeiss yet, but I hope he impresses me more than Milady, Ms. I'm Going to Grow Ten Levels Without Getting a Single Point in Strength.

Shanna vs Thite vs Juno

Shanna (Thany) because she is the only one I've had the patience to train up. I don't like to field more than one frail flier at a time.

Lalum vs Elphin

Elphin. Lalum just sort of annoys me.

Thoughts on Merlinus?

He is best confined to cut scenes. And I don't like him much there.

Thoughts on Fae?

She's adorable and a dragon, what's not to like? Well, I guess the fact that she only gets 30 uses of her dragonstone . . .

Thoughts on Roy?

He's not as bad as I feared he would be. He's a fine lord and a decent unit. Not great, but good enough to hold his own. Plus the support bonuses he give to Lillina are fantastic!

A lot to consider here.

Alen vs Lance vs Marcus vs Zealots vs Trec vs Noah vs Percival

Lance, he turned out great in my game, although for some reason he got quite a bit weaker by the end of the game.

Wolt vs Dorothy vs Klein vs Igrene

Wolt, I suck at leveling archers, I know they're useful to have around but I just struggle to use em, not so much of an issue with Wolt. Plus since I played the Blazing Sword before this I know he is Rebecca's kid and I quite liked Rebecca in the Blazing Sword.

Sue vs Sin vs Dayan

Gonna be honest never used any of them, but I pick Sue based only because she is related to Rath.

Bors vs Wendy vs Barth vs Douglas

Bors, although I used Wendy after I got her, she was so much trouble to level for me personally, but in the time I was using Bors I had very little issues, should have just stuck to him really.

Niime vs Raigh vs Sophia

Raigh, he hit hard, he hit fast and became pretty much a mage tank for taking on Wyvern Riders and Lords like they were nothing, plus he is Nino's kid and she was just awesome.

Lugh vs Lilina vs Hugh

WHY MUST YOU MAKE ME PICK BETWEEN MY TWO BEST MAGES YOU EVIL PERSON. That aside Lilina, while she was slower than Lugh at first, just gave her a quick speedwing, then she was just as fast, but hit even harder than he did, not to mention she healed just as well as my main healer with just a usual heal staff. Being the daughter of Hector also boost her up in my books, had to support her with Roy cause well they seemed good together XD

Ellen vs Saul vs Clarine vs Cecillia vs Jodel

Clarine, a quick mobile healer at the start, but soon became possibly my third best magic damage dealer not to mention she was funny to watch talk to others at times. She is also the daughter of Pent and Louise, of whom were actually quite good in my Blazing Sword game.

Chad vs Astore vs Cath

Again I'm terrible at levelling thieves (cept in sacred stones with Colm....). I have to pick Astore, he was a pretty strong theif and not annoying to recruit (looking at you Cath and nearly costing me a Legendary weapon).

Rutger vs Fir vs Karel

I tried to use both Rutger and Fir, but Rutger was just better overall in the end anyway so Rutger.

Bartre vs Geese vs Gonzales vs Lot vs Wade vs Garret

I ONLY LEVELED ONE OF THESE GUYS. Gonzales, he was quite strong and quick, but HE MISSED SO MUCH but when he didn't boy did it hurt.

Deke vs Ogier vs Ekhidna

Deke, no question, an amazing tank and outright massive damage dealer.

Zeiss vs Milady

Again tried to use both, but lets face it, Milady. She was just much stronger much faster and also gave her a Delphi shield and not even ballista could stop this woman.

Shanna vs Thite vs Juno

Pegasus knights.... so frail... but if I had to pick one it would have to be Shanna, just purely because I used to her for more levels (I think I was forced to use her for those levels tho)

Lalum vs Elphin

Lalum, not that I ever used her really, but I had to pick one

Merlinus?

STOP TRYING TO TELL ROY WHAT TO DO AND JUST CARRY MY STUFF, also STAY OFF THE MAP!

Fae?

Adorable little dragon like most dragons in Fire Emblem I've noticed. I really regret not using her more.

Roy?

One of my favourite Lords late game, at the start he is good and all but starts to become redundant for so long, gave him a few stat boosting items before getting him promoted, but he ended up two shooting Zephiel, and that dragon dude, and then ONE SHOT KO'd Idun. Plus I find it funny how he really liked Lilina in my game, but would then quickly change subject.

Cavaliers: For my personality my favorite is probably Treck (no, really), just because he's dopey and lazy and therefore very relatable for me. I like Percival's design the best, and stats is definitely the hardest category. Taking the entire game into view I guess I'd go with Percival again, since on NM he can probably solo C24 with base stats and a Wyrmslayer.

Archers: Igrene in all three categories, no question. I guess Klein's a solid runner-up on stats.

Nomads: Sue has my favorite personality, Dayan has my favorite design, and Shin has the best stats, no question.

Armors: Huh. Well, this one's tough... I guess I'd have to go with Douglas for all three. It's tough not picking Barth on design, though. 'Cause seriously, what a beautiful face.

Shamans: Niime wins in all three categories for me, but I like Raigh in personality and design, too, and even stats to some extent. Poor Sophia...

Mages: Hugh has my favorite personality and design, but I'll say Lugh for stats. I'd give Lilina second place in the other categories, though.

Staffbots: This one's tough... Saul wins in personality and (very slimly) stats, but on design I'm really not sure. I guess I'll pick Cecilia, but I'm pretty neutral on all of them in that area.

Thieves: Astore in all three, hands down.

Myrmidons: I'll say Rutger for stats and design, and I guess personality, too, though there I like all of them about equally.

Axebots: Gonzales is, like, my favorite character in the game, so it's him on all three without a doubt (even in stats I think he's the best of this lot). But I'll also give shout-outs to Geese and Garret in design and Bartre in personality.

They Could Be Heroes: Echidna is my favorite on personality and design, but Deke beats her in stats. Ogier is just so plain to me...

Wyverns: Who is this "Zeiss" person?

Pega-Pony Princesses: Shanna is my favorite in all three categories, though I think she's fairly interchangeable with Tate when it comes to stats unless you've over-leveled her. Now that I think about it, I know barely anything about Juno's character... I guess she's just kinda, like, motherly???

Dancebots: Honestly I'd probably put them about even in all three categories. Stats barely even matter for either of them, and I like both their personalities and designs equally.

I've spent way too much time on this already so I'll just say that Roy is okay but has bad stats, I like Fae, and Merlinus is a great human shield.

Percival- He's consistently good, regardless of stat gains, and typically excels over the other potential Paladins. He has a wonderful color palette with the dark/ navy blue, and has a respectable personality.

Clarine- early join time, and has consistent superiority in terms of skill, luck, and speed, making her excel in arena grinding at the very least. She gets enough magic to pass in combat, or destroy everything that dares look in her direction. Her high movement also makes her a very efficient healer and rescuer. I lover her prissy, rich noble demeanor, which definitely accents her perfectly.

Lilina- She easily caps magic every time I use her. Her speed can be shaky at times, but typically doesn't ever fall too far behind. Only flaw is her dreadful skill, making her accuracy on bosses a bit low, but nothing some supports can't fix. She is a total sweet heart, seen in some of her recruitment conversations, and I just love her personality.

Ellen- (putting her separate from healers in general, since she uses light magic) I like Ellen over Jodel and Saul due to her high magic, skill, and luck. While Jodel does have many similar stats to her, he starts at max level, so Ellen has much more room to improve. She can wind up fairly slow, but is fast enough to last her through the game and her high magic makes her light spells very potent. She isn't too important in the story line, but she's quiet and laid back, which I can relate to.

Douglas- In all honestly, I don't really use knights or generals period, due to the low movement and accuracy and speed. Douglas does support with better units such as Cecilia and Percival, and starts with excellent weapon ranks and base stats, so he easily tops all other armor knights. He is very honor driven, and very dedicated to what he believes in, something I admire (and is also good at running in circles).

Zeiss- Personally, I have had a lot of success with Zeiss in contrast to Milady. He gets higher strength and defense, and typically stays in equivalence with her in terms of skill and speed. His HP is good, and has typical resistance and luck for his class. His supports don't help him much, but he definitely has his uses. He is very stern and supportive of his country, but is also very honor bound for what is right.

Niime- She comes in fairly early for her level and comes in with a great inventory, weapon ranks, and very nice bases, only lacking in HP. This is easily fixed with Angelic Robes which can be bought in the secret shop of Chapter 16, easily buffing her to last a lot longer. She has quite possibly the greatest capability in terms of long range staffs, with Apocalypse to further bolster her range. I love her personality as a crazy old lady dedicating her life to magic, and her design and color palette are flawless.

Sue- Joins sooner than Sin, and has more room to grow. Her bases for her level are overall greater than Sin's. She is typically faster and luckier, thus making her at least good at dodging.

Klein- Has very shaky bases for his level, and poor growth rates to match, but his supports with Elphin and Clarine can help fix some of his setbacks, and his growths do allow for some usage, and in some cases may result in getting upwards of 20 in strength, skill, and speed. He has a very nice color palette, and a respectful personality about him. Also, Wolt hates me and refuses to get any stat other than HP, maybe skill, strength, skill, and speed are out of the question.

Chad- He has very high skill, strength, speed, luck, and HP, making him efficient for dodging and combat. The only downside is his lack of promotion. He is also very frail, so if he does get hit, the enemy will rip through his HP, but he will survive.

Roy- I typically get very bad luck with Roy, barely pushing 10 strength and 13 speed on average by level 20 in his base class. His skill, HP, and luck are usually fine, but his defenses are pretty low consistently. He usually improves upon his shortcomings upon his very late promotion, but still lags behind in terms of other sword users.

Elphin- He typically gets more HP and defenses than Lalum, and still gets a hefty amount of speed and luck to boot. He oddly gets a decent amount of skill, though useless.

Fae- She is utterly broken, only being held back by her weapon's durability, limiting her usage. She gains a level with nearly every kill and has astounding growths. She has low HP to start, but grows quickly and does heavy damage to all enemies throughout the game. She does bonus damage in the final chapters, where she is required to be brought, and in some cases, can knock out enemies in one blow.

Alen vs Lance vs Marcus vs Zealots vs Trec vs Noah vs Percival -> Noah for personality. actually, it's just because he can support Fir. I generally don't like cavaliers.

Wolt vs Dorothy vs Klein vs Igrene -> she's actually really cute

Sue vs Sin vs Dayan -> yeah, cute girls are just automatically my favorite

Bors vs Wendy vs Barth vs Douglass -> I like the challenge of trying to use Wendy

Niime vs Sophia vs Raigh -> Need I even say it?

Lugh vs Lilina vs Hugh -> LilinaxRoy OTP

Ellen vs Saul vs Clarine vs Cecillia vs Jodel -> no idea why these five are paired in one question though

Chad vs Astore vs Cath -> So sad she comes so late and can't promote

Rutger vs Fir vs Karel -> Fir! I have a slight Fir obsession...

Bartre vs Geese vs Gonzales vs Lot vs Wade vs Garret -> He's just cool

Deke vs Ogier vs Ekhidna -> early joining mercs are just plain awesome. (and wait, who's Ogier? don't know that translation)

Zeiss vs Milady -> Zeiss joins too late. Actually so does Milady but wyverns are cool and no wyvern joins earlier

Shanna vs Thite vs Juno -> Wait, which is the one that joins first? really weird translations... anyways, the first one has this cool thing going on with the merc gang

Lalum vs Elphin -> less drama more cheer

Thoughts on Merlinus? -> I like how he keeps an eye on the young Roy, and in game it's actually a nice idea to have convoy traveling on the map. Convoy in the lord's pocket just feels weird.

Thoughts on Fae? -> I like the old style manaketes (limited uses), and Fae is my favorite. That conversation with Roy after beating Jahn is still heartbreaking.

Thoughts on Roy? -> He's just fine as a lord. Keeping him alive in mid/endgame is always a nice challenge. Though his personality seems a bit too blank to me.

Alen vs Lance

Which one is the best really? Both of them are cavaliers, both are pretty good and always turned out great for me. But I guess Alen is the better one because I like his type best.

Klein

I love archers and snipers, but in FE6, I never bothered using Dorothy or Wolt. I prefer Klein because he joins already promoted and that's a plus.

Sue

I love archers and she's mounted so yay. I use her much more than Shin because she joins earlier and I usually dump a lot of experience on her.

Wendy

I don't have the best running track with armorknights, but I gotta say that I love pink armor gal.

Raigh

Raigh is my main dark magic user because I just happen to love that magic stat tbh. Niime could be my backup unit if he dies. But I dislike Sophia because she's just too Est-ish for me.

Lugh vs Lilina

Tough one because Lilina is a cute girl with blue hair but she can get speed screwed easily, and then there's Lugh who's much more stable just less cool. I'd go for Lugh, in term of gameplay.

Clarine

Clarine is my favorite FE6 healer because she's a mounted healer and can keep up with my cavaliers and pegs knight. She always turned out better than Ellen. She has a 50% magic growth and never hits it when I'm playing.

Astore

My Chad never see a lot of combat because he's a thief so he never gets a lot of level up. Having a thief with better survivability is nice because FE6 throws a lot of chests in your face with reinforcement nearby.

Fir

I hate myrmidons. So I got to go with the cute girl option.

Gonzales

I just like him and his supports with Lilina. To be honest, I only use him if he procs the skill level ups. If not, he goes on the bench.

Deke

I love this man. That's all I gotta say.

Milady

I seriously hate her name but she's a flying tank so that's pretty nice.

Shanna

I like my peg knights when they come very early so people like Yuno who takes forever, from what I remember, and Thite who starts off as an enemy unit and is a pain in the butt to recruit. I go with Shanna.

Lalum

They are both dancebots so I don't have a lot to say about that. I prefer the route of Lalum because pegasus knights really.

Merlinus?

I use him as bait when one of my unit are in danger, I plead guilty.

Fae?

I like her but I find her gimmick of being really cute is boring. It would have been funnier if she was really mean and stuff because she's really old but looks like a child.

Roy?

He's okay. Mine's never get speed or strength but I seen him do good... Sometimes.

I'm just mixing all three together since I sort of based them all mixed together when I played the game. But I'll put a description on why that character.



Alen and Percival: Alen for personality and design. Percival for personality, design, and stats.



Igrene and Klein: For Igrene mainly for stats but I also liked her design as well. For Klein it was all three.



Sue: Mainly for personality. But I liked her design and her stats became good.



Barth: For stats.



Niime vs Sophia vs Raigh: None.



Lilina: For personality. Really like her design and her stats became pretty good.



Saul: Stats.



Astore: Stats.



Rutger: Stats, he wasn't an appealing character to me but he was good.



Geese: Design and personality.



Dieck: Stats, not an appealing character but he did awesome.



Zeiss: For personality and design. Preferred him way over Milady.



Shanna: Sort of stats.



Elphin: No particular reason really.



Thoughts on Merlinus: Eh, kind of stupid tbh. I prefer getting the convoy from the main lord.



Thoughts on Fae: Worst Manakete ever.



Thoughts on Roy: One of my favorite lords of all time, but I wish they let him class change sooner.

Percival- He looks good, has a good personality, and is an amazing unit.

Klein- He's the son of Pent and Louise, he's a good unit, has a cool design, and I like his personality.

Shin- Besides Takumi, he was probably the best archer I've ever used in Fire Emblem,and has an okay design. Can't say much for personality.

Bors- I'm mostly indifferent to all of them (or hate in Wendy's case), but at least Bors has a fabulous chin.

Raigh- He's one of my favourites in the entire series. I love his smug face, his personality and he performed well as a unit. I like Sophia too, but she's never been a useful unit for me. and I prefer Raigh.

Lugh- Easily the best mage in FE6. He's also Raigh's brother and has a really cool personality. I like Lilina too, but she was a worse unit gameplaywise then Lugh

Clarine- Clarine,because she's the daughter of Pent and Louise, has a cute design and was probably my best healer. I like mounted healers.

Astore- He is such an underrated character. His supports with Igrene are so good. He's also the best thief as a unit.

Karel- Rutger and Fir are far better units, but as characters, Rutger is just Coldsteel the Swordsman and Fir is bland, while Karel gets really interesting development from the Sword Demon to the Sword Saint.

Geese- Geese is definitely the best looking and has fabulous hair, and has a good personality as well.

Deke- Deke is just great, unit wise and personality wise.

Milady- I absolutely love Milady. She's a really cool character, excellent unit and has one of my favourite designs in the series. She should have been named Melody though.

Shanna- Shanna, but I'm probably biased because I had a super strength blessed Shanna with better strength than Milady.

Elphin- I prefer Elphin as a character, but sadly you get Lalum in the better route.

Thoughts on Merlinus?- He's alright. I like the idea of having a convoy unit.

Thoughts on Fae?- Never used her.

Thoughts on Roy?- Meh.

I'm like, half a year late to reply to this, but here goes:

Cavs: Percival wins this pretty easily. I don't actually care for any of the others, except somehow I always find myself using Treck, so I guess he's my second favourite.

Archers: Dorothy and Igrene are both pretty close. I think Igrene might inch out just a bit further because she's so pretty.

Nomads: Sue's the only one I like at all, so this one's pretty easy. Shin bores me and Dayan is kinda terrible.

Knights: Barth is great. He's a crazy good tank unless he's up against mages, and 6 doesn't really throw that many mages at you since it's too busy swarming you with Wyverns. Switch him to Axes upon promotion and give him Armads and watch him tank Manaketes all endgame long.

Shamans: I'm Sophia trash. She's so bad that I can't help but love her.

Mages: Lugh's my favourite, but Lilina's white dress is really pretty. I never got why her artwork and mugshot are wearing red while her sprite is blue and white.

Stickpeople: Saul's the clear winner for me, since Elen's 50% Mag growth somehow means that she never procs it for me, and I just can't like Clarine for some reason. Plus, using a troubador over a priest means you miss out on having an Aureola user.

Thieves: Wyrmslayer Cath comes to endgame every time

Swordmaters: Fir. Rutger's another character I can't make myself like and Karel comes way too late and I'm still a little resentful that he was better in all ways compared to Fir after I'd spent the entire game babying her

Axe bros: I like Lot. He's cute. I want to like Garrett too, but he's kinda bad.

Mercs: Dieck, no question. The other two wish they could be that strong.

Wyverns: I honestly don't really like either of them. Zeiss probably wins out by a bit if I have to choose. I just wish one of them had a non-blue wyvern, it would have shot their coolness factor way up.

Pegs: Tate. There's something about Thany that I just can't like, and Juno is borderline unusable. I'm also still a little mad that my dreams of Durandal Juno were quashed.

Refreshers: Elphin's bird is the best.

Merlinus?: He's borderline useless as a deployable unit and only exists in the plot to be yelled at by Roy for being a jerk who doesn't want t help literally everyone.

Fae?: She's cute and I like to feed her a few levels so she can contribute to endgame, but it sucks that you can't legitimately use her that much since her dragonstone has so few uses.

Roy?: This is what I think about Roy:

Gain some stats, dammit

Noah. He's not the best unit, but his character makes me think of the kind of guy who's grateful for what 's there.

Dorathy is probably my favorite in terms of character, but Igrene... her stats are good and she just... looks so well designed.

Sue, if I had to choose.

I guess wendy. Although Bors has turned out fantastic for me every time I used him.

Reigh. Definately. Like I said on the GBA Shaman/Druid poll, He is my favorite Dark magic/eldermagic user in the series. His character is diverse with a single goal - "to help using hell". Game play wise, he's much more useful than staff bot 2.0 and Ms. Paper bag.

Lugh is the best of the three, but I still like lilina the best. Once she becomes a sage that can use physics, it's like , "What's an elixer?"

Cecilia. Her aircalibur and staff use makes me happy every time I use her. Plus, I almost always marry her to roy when I get the chance.

Chad is the best. Cath is too... pragmatic for my taste.

Fir. Karel is a nice edition, but fir is just... well, for non-hard mode playthroughs, mostly. I like all of them to be honest. Mr. 100+ crit is great, too.

You're making me choose... between the best Warrior and best berserker. No. Bartre and Gonzales are both a tie and the favorites of my team. I almost Always have one of the two on my team. Wade is cool, though. Great middle game fodder.

Ogier. Love his supports. Never used Deke, and Echidna mostly hit the bench.

Milady. Zeiss is fine, but I only used him once or twice. And durring a Zeppelin Run. (Don't concern yourself with what that is)

Thite, I suppose. Shanna does make for great early game utility if you can get her high-leveled enough.

Never really use either. But Lalum, I suppose.

Merlinus is cool, as a one time concept. He works best in FE 7, but I've really been a fan of the convoy on the lord thing.

Fae is you either use her in the endgame, or you bench her completely. Never use her when you first get her.

Roy. I like him. Yes, he promotes late, but I don't think that matters when you have good enough stats to survive on your own. Just make sure he has enough speed and luck, and you're good. He makes a good sword user, and with the right stats, he can kill the final boss with an overpowered blade in one round of combat.

Alen vs Lance vs Marcus vs Zealots vs Trec vs Noah vs Percival

When it comes to design, Percival wins it for me. He looks the most interesting, although Lance's bright green hair makes for a close second.

Alance is frankly your best batch of cavaliers in the game, while Percival can be a strong substitute.

Personality...eh. I haven't really seen these guys' supports, so I don't think I can have a saying here.

Wolt vs Dorothy vs Klein vs Igrene

Let's see... I like Wolt's design the most, but only because I've played FE7 prior to FE6. He looks just like Wil, but also has a tad from Rebecca's green hair.

Archers? Who uses them when you got nomads. :P HM Klein and Dorothy, I guess.

In terms of personality, I favour Wolt. At times he can be such a doofus, but he's got ambition. Too bad he's outshined by pretty much every other bow user in the game.

Sue vs Sin vs Dayan

Sue has the best design here. Her green hair just screams Sacae, and it also reminds me of Lyn a bit. I don't find Mr. Glare and Dayan's yellow robes to be appealing to me.

In game play, it depends. In normal mode, Sue is better, but in hard mode, Shin is your better choice.

Sue has a little more grace with nature than the others do so...yeah.

Bors vs Wendy vs Barth vs Douglass

...Um, ok. Douglas for best design, General Barth in HM before Axe Land (replaced by Douglas after chapter 16), Douglas for best character. I've nothing else to say, really.

Niime vs Sophia vs Raigh

Raigh wins both design and gameplay usage. The dark robes contradict his family's recurring green hair, which is associated with anima magic.

Niime has the most interesting personality. A hermit that studied arcane magic for a long time. A curiosity about dragons arises to make her more sinister. But her conversations with Hugh are what sells it for me. xD

Lugh vs Lilina vs Hugh

Hnrgh. It's tough deciding on design. Lilina and Hugh tie for me. Lilina just looks adorable, while Hugh's purple hair and anima magic contradict his father's nature.

Really, all of them can be useful. As long as Lugh doesn't get magic screwed, he'll have the most availability. He values speed over offense, which is nice. Hugh doesn't get screwed as easily, and is the most balanced of the three if you decide to pay him 10k. Lilina can either be a devastating magic offense, or a disappointment, depending on what the RNG wants to do with her. They're all good in my eyes.

Ellen vs Saul vs Clarine vs Cecillia vs Jodel

Clarine and Cecilia tie for me. The others look too religious for my liking.

Saul and Clarine can be great units. The former for how balanced he is, and the latter for her exceptional speed and luck, which make her avoidance godly. Elen could also be a good unit, so long as you keep her away from the front lines. Her magic packs a punch and her resistance is through the roof.

Saul ain't no Sain, but he's your typical womaniser. Nothing wrong with that. B)

Chad vs Astore vs Cath

Astore has the best design for a thief. I dunno, there's something mysterious about him that just gives him a good design. He's also the best thief IMO. Thieves are just utility units, and Astore has good survivability.

Chad is overall a nice guy for a thief, while Cath wants to steal from other units to show how 'good' she is as a unit. I respect nice guys, but Cath is just so entertaining. They tie for me regarding personality.

Lol, 'Hey, Geeeeeese' xD

Rutger vs Fir vs Karel

They all look great. I don't really have a preference when it comes to their design.

Rutger is a god in HM. He's still great in NM, but Fir can match him. Karel, Karel, Karel...those growths are just trolling me.

I haven't really looked into their supports. At the time being, they're all on the same level for me.

Bartre vs Geese vs Gonzales vs Lot vs Wade vs Garret

GEESE WINS EVERYTHING CUZ HE'S A BOSSSSSSSS

Ahem.

Bartre and Geese stick out to me the most. Bartre has that rugged look to him and a rough moustache to top it off. That headband looks awesome on him. Geese was a trader before the war started, and as such he has fancy captain robes on. In the artwork, I mean. His portrait looks spot on for a seafarer. They both look kickass.

As much as I fanboy over Geese, I'll admit that Gonzales is a better unit. If you can somehow fix his accuracy issues, he'll be an awesome unit. His strength growth is pretty darn high, and Berserkers have a strength cap of 30, so he'll make the most of it. He also has goos speed; couple that with a Brave axe and watch him go. I assume the community would only like Geese as a unit because Berserkers are OP. ;-;

Personality? Geese again. His supports speak volumes regarding his character IMO. He's pretty much the only unit that ends up trolling Cath in the end. :P He's a nice guy, and he'd rather not do piracy (if you couldn't tell from my signature). Overall, I'm biased towards him. Nuff said.

Deke vs Ogier vs Ekhidna

Deke has a cool design to him. Why, he DOES look like a former arena battler. Thanks, description. I don't think I needed you to this time to tell me more about him.

OJ (as I call him) will beat Deke in stats eventually, as he has better growths. If you decide to train him up (which isn't difficult to do, considering the fact that you get him before Axe Land), he can become pretty good. Deke is a good option as well, if you don't feel like training OJ up. But who doesn't like having 2 heroes? I guess Echidna's got that axe rank, in case you don't end up having any good axe fighters...

Zeiss vs Milady

Zeiss has that fiery look about him. DETERMINATION FLOWS THROUGH HIS VEINSSSSS (If Gale were recruitable, he'd look the most badass of the 3)

Milady will be IMMENSELY useful. She's pretty much the best flier in the game. If you want to have another good wyvern rider, use Zeiss too. He'll be harder to train, but he'll essentially be another Milady if you put time and effort into him.

Milady has the courage to betray Bern and serve Guinivere. Now that'z loyalty. She's quite caring towards her brother, not to mention that she's Gale's love interest. She has the most depth of the 3, in my eyes.

Shanna vs Thite vs Juno

Eh. Juno's hair sticks out the most.

From what I've heard, Thite is the best pegasus knight out of the three, but I usually don't bother with them, as the wyvern riders are that much better.

SHANNA WATCH OUT FOR ARROWS! Well, I could say that she's the most lively out of the three.

Lalum vs Elphin

Elphin wins all three. Lalum's too annoying.

Thoughts on Merlinus?

Seeing Merlinus this wise sure surprised me since FE7. Woe is me, I can't decide which Merlinus is best, FE6's or FE7's.

Thoughts on Fae?

Isn't she adowable? I don't care that she's a manakete, I just wanna pinch her cheeks. She so naive and innocent...

Thoughts on Roy?

ROY'S OUR BOY. ROY'S OUR BOY. ROY'S OUR BOY.

If it weren't for his late promotion, he'd be a good lord. Some call his personality bland, and others over exaggerate his suckiness. If you were a 15 year old responsible for any deaths in an army, going against the most powerful militia of the world, I doubt you'd keep your head level throughout the whole journey. He keeps calm throughout the game so he doesn't lose it, thus spreading the panic in his army. He's getting too much flack, IMO.

Sorry for writing an essay, I just had to get my thoughts out of the way.
