Fire Emblem is a great fit for Koei Tecmo’s Warriors series, as it’s filled with varied and memorable characters, who each have a specific function. With such a huge roster of character from the series it’s incredibly hard to pinpoint a handful, but here’s a few we’d like to see. It should be noted that Marth, Corrin, Chrom, Xander, and Ryoma have been excluded as their weapons can be spotted in the announcement trailer. Presumably, this could mean they’re already planned to be featured.
Ike is absolutely a no-brainer for Fire Emblem Warriors, as he’s essentially become one of the posterboys of the series. This gruff swordsman is the main character of Path of Radiance, and his attacks pack a serious punch. Ike is a sure fit for a Warriors game, as he could blow away hordes of enemies with only a few strikes.
Cain was one of the first Chevaliers introduced in the very first Fire Emblem game, and he’s a loyal soldier to Prince Marth. He’s skilled with multiple weapons like lances and swords, and is a valuable ally. Recently he was featured in Tokyo Mirage Sessions, adding even more credence to why he should appear in Fire Emblem Warriors.
Robin is the player avatar in Fire Emblem Awakening, and is a skilled tactician that can use both swords and magic tomes. The character is also one of the more popular in recent memory, due to their inclusion in Super Smash Bros. With a mix of swordsmanship and magic, Robin would make for an interesting hybrid character.
Camilla is one of Corrin’s Nohrian siblings in Fire Emblem Fates, and she’s one of the deadliest warriors in the entire kingdom. Camilla may be a little unhinged with her undying affection towards her family, but atop her wyvern mount she can’t be stopped. The axe-wielding Wyvern Rider could be blast to control in a Warriors game.
Roy is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable characters in Fire Emblem, partially because of his inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Melee. The swordsman first appeared in Fire Emblem 6 (The Binding Blade) as the main character, and his attacks have a fiery flair to them. Roy seems like a shoe in for Warriors, and could really wreak havoc on the battlefield.
Joshua is a wily gambler you can recruit in The Sacred Stones, but he’s also got a secret identity as the Prince of Jehanna. He’s incredibly skilled with a blade, but leaves most of his decisions up to coin flip. This is something that could really work into his playstyle in a Warriors game, making him a big risk and reward character.
Sigurd is the main character of the fourth Fire Emblem title, and the very first lord character to be mounted atop a horse. He’s a kindhearted man who’s willing to do whatever it takes for his subjects and those he loves. This Holy Knight could bring some nice variation to mounted units in Fire Emblem Warriors, along with some powerful leadership abilities.
The Black Knight is one of the most iconic villains in the entire series, and he’s an unstoppable force for much of Path of Radiance. Clad in enormous black armor, this hulking enemy mercilessly cuts down everything in his path, and comes to blows with Ike more than once. He’d essentially be the equivalent of playing Lu Bu in warriors, but his actual identity could land him on either side of the battlefield.
