Fire Emblem Character Survey

Recommended Posts

Also available on Reddit:

What is this, you ask?

Well, one day I just up and thought "what does the FE community think of FE's characters?" Then, I decided that over the course of a few days, I'd set up polls in which participants essentially rate each character from 1 to 5 in terms of how much they like them (1: Hate, 2: Dislike, 3: Neutral/Mixed Feelings, 4: Like, 5: Love.) It's a pretty straightforward thing - you've seen surveys far more intensive than this - but I plan on analysing the data and pointing out interesting facts after every poll, like overlaps or interesting votes. And why am I doing this? Because I'm curious, love doing these kinds of things and think some people might be interested, too.

Some more info:

- We'll cover one subseries/era per day starting with the most recent one, Fódlan/Three Houses. That said, instead of ordering eras by the year of their debut, I'll order them by the year of their most recent entry. As such, we'd get 3H, then Valentia, then Fates, then Awakening, then Archanea, then Tellius, then Sacred Stones, then Elibe, and finally, Jugdral. The results of every poll will be posted on the poll that comes after, ordered in the format of a tier list that will come in both image and text form. Once voting on all nine polls is over, I'll merge all the results to create a universal tier list of sorts.

- The Avatar's different genders count as separate characters, simply because they tend to have fairly different fanbases, specially among casual fans. Of course, feel free to just give the same rating to both if you like them equally, or think that the differences between both don't matter.

- Different identities of the same character count as one character. It goes without saying that you can expect many spoilers stemming from this. Even if they are out of context, I recommend playing the game or being familiar with its story before voting on its poll, as obvious as it may sound. The reason for this choice is that when a character goes by multiple identities in a story, people tend to judge all identities as one character. On a related note, some iterations of characters with multiple appearances are distanced enough from their other appearances/identities that they can be judged as separate characters. Which is to say, I'd separate FE6 Karel and FE7 Karel but treat Sirius and Camus as one character. If you didn't understand well and/or have some questions, don't worry, it's just fairly complicated and I'm bad at these kinds of explanations.

- Characters that appear in more than one era will have each of their incarnations voted on separately. It's up to my discretion if I merge their votes at the end or not, however.

- Bosses that only appear in one chapter and have no story relevance can't be voted for. Sorry, all five of you Guile fans. The bosses that managed to break out and garner a decent fanbase (see: Brigand Boss, Gheb), will probably be included, but I fear they'll get to S+ tier just because of memez.

- Spinoffs will probably be covered, but they'll get their polls right at the end. I don't know if I should include the "I can't believe it's not Fire Emblem" Kaga games like TRS, however. I can't see popular hacks like The Last Promise getting their own polls.

I think this is probably it. If you have any questions, I'll answer them to the best of my capability. In fact, the reason why I made a preliminary post instead of starting straight away is because I wanted to make sure the format was as flexible as possible. I also wanted feedback on some choices I thought were questionable. The polls will all be available on Google Forms.

Well then, see you tomorrow!

Hey, just dropping here to say that from now on, all polls will be in this one post. Here's the Reddit link: 

That being said, I can't edit the title of this post to just say "Fire Emblem Character Survey". Captcha doesn't want me to right now. So, uh... Mooooooooooooooods!

In case the embed doesn't work for whatever reason, here's an important note: While the gap between surveys has been cut in half, voting still lasts 36 hours. If you're familiar with the Tellius games and weren't around when their survey was first posted, you still have time until tomorrow (8/3) at 5:15 AM GMT-4 to vote.

Anyway, 

Playable Characters, Part 1: https://forms.gle/rHnGGXEzPHN3SRi68

Playable Characters, Part 2: https://forms.gle/Lq5UtUpoiZ5wiy526

NPCs, Antagonists: https://forms.gle/539YhC7fS5bfvczK6

The link to the Playable Characters Part 2 poll won't embed, but if you copy and paste it into your browser's search bar it should work just fine. Not sure what happened.
