If the NPCs were playable in the base game, who would you have wanted for DLC?

Recommended Posts

If Owain, Navarre, Niles, and Oboro were part of the base game (as they should have been), who would you have wanted as DLC?

 

As a rule, these slots must be taken by characters from the same game.

 

My list:

 

Awakening:

Owain's slot goes to Basilio. He shares Lyssa's moveset, with much higher strength and defense, but lower magic and resistance and no ability to use staves.

 

Fates:

Oboro's Hoshido slot goes to Kaze, wielding a new dagger moveset with a new dagger weapon type.

 

Niles' Nohr slot goes to Felicia, sharing Kaze's dagger moveset and weapon type.

 

Shadow Dragon:

Navarre's slot goes to Camus, wielding a new lance cavalry moveset.

Awakening: Kellam. Not having any armors in the roster made it feel incomplete and Kellam is more likable than Effie imo and I assume someone like Draug wouldn't have been all that great either.

Fates: both Keaton and Kaden. Beast would have been great to see and only having stones be used by one character is strange.

Shadow Dragon: I'm not familiar with the characters but I'll second Camus. Jagen would have been ok too.

Awakening: Inigo or Stahl.

Fates: Silas. I still have no idea why we had no playable lance cavalry.

SD: Palla since Linde got to be DLC. Camus is a good option as well for another lance cav.

Fates: Silas to bring in a lance moveset for cavalry. Kaze to bring in a sword moveset for Thieves/Ninjas.

Shadow Dragon: There's too many I would like to see from Archanea but I guess any of Camus (Lance Cavalry) with Gravidus or Jeorge (Bow) with Parthia. Would have mentioned Merric with Excalibur as well but since Linde wasn't planned before DLC (and I prefer Linde over Merric despite liking both of them) poor guy probably never had a chance despite being Marth's best friend. Ogma with Mercurius would have been nice as well but the game is already oversaturated with swords.

Awakening: A!Tiki to bring in another dragon user. Also could of have brought interesting support conversations with Marth and her younger self.

I'd give Owain's spot to The Vaikening. If he has to re-use Lissa's moveset, he'd be the only one that I can see who'd actually lose his axe mid-combo ( see C4) to reference his introduction in CH2.

For Fates I'm with you on both fronts though I'm not sure about them sharing a moveset

Shadow Dragon I'm giving to Hardin though. Normally I'd have went with Cain, but I feel that the direct referencing of him in supports discredits him due to continuity constraints. Hardin wouldn't have this issue and could still go with a Lance Cav moveset

For the record, my original two picks for Fates were Silas and Rinkah, and it hurt to knock Rinkah out. But I felt that the dagger weapon type was too important to neglect, and the founder of the lance cavalry moveset should always have been the Sable Knight himself.

Them sharing a moveset was more of a matter of what I'd realistically expect from a company as notoriously corner cutting as Koei Tecmo. I agree they should play differently (due to Felicia's clumsiness), but the reality is that Felicia would probably be a magical Kaze with staff usage.

 

Perhaps it would make more sense for them to share a moveset if Fiora was the Nohr rep. I'd personally prefer that anyway.
