Hello, fellow Brom fan. How are you doing?

(By the way, we really are the only ones that cited Brom at the moment. This is kind of..sad.)

I'm doing well, thanks!
(Yeah, it is sad. I always wish he were more popular)

 

Some other characters that'd go in my "honorable mentions" category are Chrom, Nino, Alm, Fiora, Caineghis, Tailtiu, Lucina, Heath, Isadora, and Caeda.

Lyn and Ephraim have always been my two favorite characters, although Eliwood is SUPER close with Ephraim.

I've been taking a writing class and have actually been pursuing writing as a career. Through a lot of what I've learned, I've come to appreciate the way certain characters are written. Leif, for instance, is someone I'd say is genuinely one of the best-written characters in the entirety of the Fire Emblem franchise. Brom is still super amazing and one of my favorites, and I actually appreciate him even MORE now that I actually understand certain writing points, but I've also come to appreciate those other characters I ranked above him a lot.

Full disclosure: I have not played Three Houses, as I do not own a Switch, I may post an update again after Black Friday when I plan to buy a Switch as well as the game. 

1. Lucina (Awakening)

2. Ike (Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn)

3. Ephraim (Sacred Stones)

4. Caeda (Shadow Dragon)

5. The Black Knight (Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn)

6. Xander (Fates)

7. Titania (Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn)

8. Elincia (Radiant Dawn)

9. Neimi (Sacred Stones)

10. Petrine (Path of Radiance)

11. Aversa* (Awakening)

12. Tibarn (Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn)

13. Nailah (Radiant Dawn)

14. Haar (Radiant Dawn)

15. Serena/Selena (she's a national treasure)

 

I tried to take into account a combination of the characters abilities in game as well as their personalities, supports, memorability, design, etc.15 characters is not nearly enough to do the series justice, but it's always fun to look back at previous threads when posting in one like this and see how my list has changed over time, as well as which characters have withstood the test of time. 

* = strictly ranking post game, playable version of the character

I'm quite surprised to see you like many of the characters I also like. I think the only reason I don't like Nyx more is because I have... weird feeling entering in Conquest content, and my like for Nyx was born in very strange circunstances.

In no particular order, out of Binding Blade, Sacred Stones, Shadow Dragon, Awakening, Fates Conquest Pacific Theatre edition, and TMSFE:

  • Minako Arisato Yu Narukami Itsuki Aoi (Tokyo Mirage Sessions - Has a Lord/protagonist-other role dynamic that is similar with Yu/Minako in Persona 3-4, but is too often neglected in FE, and should form the dynamic of the next FE entry (barring remakes).)
  • General Douglas MacArthur (Conquest LP Pacific Theatre edition - our LP's unofficial mascot and everyone's paragon)
  • Dieck (BB - man, he's an awesome bro.)
  • Clarine (BB - Implacable and determined woman she is to have chased a guys ass with such a foul mouth. Not to mention dodging everything like no-one's business.)
  • Zephyr (BB - one of the few villains that mainly relied on his industrial-military complex)
  • Lute (SS - Son-of-Garcia-Ross hahaha)
  • Cherche (Awakening - I like how she's classy, yet takes shit from no-one. Reminds me of Yukiko post-character development in P4, and Mitsuru in P3.)
  • Maribelle (Japanese version of Awakening - she actually mix delinquent and upper-class speeches with hilarious results.)
  • Elphin (BB - Oh the irony of leading a resistance without knowing that he's actually a symbol of their hated colonisers.)
  • Mozu (Conquest LP Pacific Theatre edition - our resident sniper hero!)
  • Sakura (Conquest LP Pacific Theatre edition - The courageous defector from dictatorship!)
  • SamusLeaf Caeda (SD - Basically the other non-damsel besides Samus in the early Nintendo days that is somewhat overlooked. Plus, Wing Spear.)
  • Lilina
  • Roy
  • Selena (Conquest LP Pacific Theatre edition - Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi, Oi, Oi!!)

  • Ike. He's not only my favourite FE character, but he's also one of my favourite video game characters.

Top Five:

  • Elincia
  • Edelgard
  • Rhys
  • Cordelia

Top Ten:

  • Hubert
  • Greil
  • Petra
  • Haar
  • Mia

Top Fifteen:

  • Bernadetta
  • Jill
  • Rolf
  • Micaiah
  • Dorothea

Honourable Mentions: Mist, Ferdinand, Ashnard, Black Knight, Sephiran, Mathilda, Soren, Titania, Edward

Honestly disappointed by the lack of Zihark and Seth on so many lists.
