    Reminder that Male Byleth's previous VA, Chris Niosi aka Kirbopher, got booted from the game around release because he broke NDA bragging about how he would get to be in Smash and also was revealed to be a sex pest

    That's me too. A bit tired of Fire Emblem characters making the cut though.

    Getting Byleth as character #5 was quite unexpected though it is nice they are the second Fire Emblem that gets to use weapons other than swords. Also great that we are getting six more characters after the Fighter Pass.

    Oh well. I guess they had to represent 3H. So if something new comes out that has a brand new important character, flags can be raised.

    ...But seriously, no Bernie or Mercedes? Geese. Terry got it good with all the cameos.

    Not gonna lie. When I woke up and saw Byleth's name written on the video, I laughed that it was another Fire Emblem character. From the looks of the like/dislike bar, I guess some Smash fans felt like they got trolled lol.

    Compared to the amount of unpleasant comments the Pokemon news gets, the amount of salt for a Fire Emblem character is hilarious.

    I do love the weapons getting represented though.

    I also want to note that Fire Emblem is nearly an anthological series, so getting new characters is pretty easy.
    Though there are three in Awakening, two of those are echoes, so...

    Even in Smash there's no escaping Fodlan Winds.

    Today is a good day to be a 3 Houses fan.

    "Hoes Mad" is such a hilarious trend.

    First it was the Player's Voice Award and now Smash Bros. Who will Fire Emblem troll next?

    Astral Chain got spirits 5 months after it released, so to see Three Houses not get any in the six months it was out felt like something was up for this game in particular. And now we know why.

    The irony of people upset over another swordfighter after they spent all of 2019 hoping for Sora and 2B, and all of 2020 for Dante amidst rumors, is palpable.

    Another favorite part of mine from the Direct was how Sothis basically went “Too many swordsmen, eh?” only to have Byleth change into the female one.

    She’s a swordswoman! Super different!

    I thought it was because Byleth actually uses 3 other weapon types.

    It's a good to be excited but it's also a okay to be disappointed. Just don't act like a spoiled brat about it and everything will be fine like how your grand mama makes a good home-made lasagna. Sure it takes hours to make it right but it is still worth it in the very end. Just like a Smash Bros. character. You wait hours for it, it's still going to be a good quality character even if it doesn't meet your expectations.

    The Japanese presentation had Sothis note that Byleth changed his gender iirc.

    Judging by the video, I wonder if Byleth is going to be a heavy swords character similar to Ike only instead of being up-close and personal it's as the video said, a distance demon. Come to think of it, is there a character like Byleth? A heavy with a focus on distance attacks? Can't remember.

    Thank goodness, an actual first party character. Not really into to Fire Emblem, and I feel like they have enough characters in Smash Bros already, but whatever, I'll take anything at this point. Guess this DLC pack went the same way as Smash Bros Wii U's DLC, an assortment of third parties, and one Fire Emblem character. I really don't get it, but whatever. Here's to hoping they've gotten the third parties out of their system and the next pack will be mostly, if not all, first parties.

    Since my brother likes Fire Emblem, this will probably be the first DLC character since Piranha Plant that I actually end up getting.

    Bguy7: I feel like they have enough [Fire Emblem] characters in Smash Bros. already...
    Sakurai: Is that a challenge?

    The next six turns out to be entirely Fire Emblem characters. Somewhere Waluigi is crying in a corner.

    Just to be clear, I'm not one of those people absolutely against more Fire Emblem (or sword-wielding) characters. I don't care that much on the topic, but I'd still say they don't need any more, if it were up to me.

    At the very least, Robin, Corrin and now, Byleth are unique characters in their own right showing the different weapon styles of Fire Emblem.

    Not surprised it's another Fire Emblem character in the least.
