“Careful, love. Prices aren't the only things I can cut in half!”
—Anna in Fire Emblem Awakening

Anna is a recurring character in the Fire Emblem series. She has made an appearance in every single Fire Emblem game to date save Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

Anna primarily serves as a whimsical shopkeeper or some form of an NPC in her earliest appearances in the franchise. Starting from Fire Emblem Awakening forward, Anna has been a playable character, most notably as an important story character in Fire Emblem Heroes.

The Anna encountered in each appearance is not the same person, but rather an entire family of women who bear the same appearance and name.

Profile[]

Traditionally a non-playable character, Anna appears throughout various Fire Emblem games as a guide, cameo, prompt for suspending map data, or most often as a merchant in one of the Secret Shops. In the GBA games she also appears in the Link Arena and also in the prompt before game data is erased. In Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, she hosts the in-game tutorial. She also appears in the beginning of Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem, guiding the player in the creation of Kris.

Anna appears in dialogue as an NPC in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, its remake Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, New Mystery of the Emblem, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, and Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. In all of those games, she appears to have a close relationship with another recurring character, Jake. Anna and Jake are in fact engaged in Genealogy of the Holy War.

Anna makes her playable debut in Fire Emblem Awakening through a Paralogue and is playable in every game released since, either as a member of the release roster or as post-release downloadable content, with the exception of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

Anna is consistently depicted as a red-haired woman, styled with a ponytail hairstyle, and wears red-colored outfits. One of her staple traits is a pose which she has her index finger, usually from her right hand, resting on her chin with a sly smile on her face.

Shadow Dragon and Mystery of the Emblem[]

“Not everybody fighting for Grust is a bad apple, you know. Take my sweetheart, Jake. He's got a heart of gold, that one. If you see him, tell him Anna's worried sick about him.”
—Anna in Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon

Anna first appears as a Archanean villager in a palace town. Despite Grust occupying the country, Anna has a close relationship with Jake, a drafted soldier who worked as a Ballistician for the Grust army. Not wanting Jake to be hurt by the Archanean League, Anna told Caeda to tell Jake to quit fighting as she's worried sick about him. After Jake joined the league, Anna cheered on her "honeycomb."

Anna also ran a series of secret shops throughout that could only be accessed with a Member Card. As mentioned in the game's ending, after the War of Shadows was over, Jake and Anna decided to travel the world as they always wanted.

In New Mystery of the Emblem, Anna returns to present the avatar creation process and cheer on Jake. The couple resumes traveling the world in their ending.

Genealogy of the Holy War[]

Anna appears as a villager in Leonster in Chapter 7, revealing she is worried about Jake going off to fight against the Grannvale Empire. In Chapter 8, Jake is rescued by Amid and Linda, with the reunited couple saying they will name some children after the two.

The Blazing Blade[]

Alongside her usual secret shop duty, Anna makes an appearance in the pub at The Port of Badon. She comments on the party's troubling situation and gives them advice on how to prevail against Fargus' pirates. Afterwards she says to say hi to her boyfriend Jake and stays at the pub.

Awakening[]

Anna appears in Awakening not as a singular individual, but an entire of family of women who all appear the same and are merchants by trade. They refer to each other as "sisters" for the most part, though some distinct themselves as cousins or close relatives. Her dialogue throughout the game implies that these "sisters" also apply to all other appearances of Anna in previous games.

One particular Anna appears in Paralogue 2 and Paralogue 4, joining the Shepherds in the latter as thanks for rescuing her. Anna explains her family's striking resemblance to each other, revealing that the Anna that appears multiple times is not a single woman, but a large family of female merchants who all appear the same and even have the same mannerisms, serving as part of their secret as the "secret seller".

An Anna occasionally appears on the world map as a Secret Shop to give the Shepherds special deals on weapons and items. One Anna serves as the guide for the Outrealm Gate when selecting DLC maps. Other Annas play important, non-playable roles in Xenologues 16, 17, 18, and 20. A final Anna serves as the host of Xenologue 22 and as the final boss of the Secret Waves of the battle.

Fates[]

Like Awakening, Anna appears as the gatekeeper for the Dragon's Gate for the Xenologues of Fates.

In her Xenologue, Anna is caught by Lloyd and Llewelyn, hoping to utilize her "sneakiness" in their pirate crew. As fate would have it, Corrin and Felicia/Jakob arrive near the pirate's base after hearing rumors of them causing problems for local villagers. Eventually Corrin and their army dispatch the bandits and rescues Anna. Hearing that they are of royalty, Anna pledges her services as payment for her rescue. Consequent playthroughs of the Xenologue revolve around another Anna being caught. Corrin rescues them and she thanks them for the rescue.

Her supports with Female Corrin show that she is initially upset that all her sisters share the same name and wonders why her parents gave it to them. However, it is later revealed that her parents gave each Anna a different pronunciation so that when they called for one, that one would respond back rather than all of them.

She has the most side jobs in the army.

Three Houses[]

In Three Houses, Anna appears during Part II, though in order to get access to her shop the player must first complete the quest "The Secret Shop", wherein the player must find her Secret Thingy located on the grounds of Garreg Mach Monastery. Anna also appears within some characters' support conversations.

Anna also appears in both Part I and Part II as the shopkeeper if the Marketplace is accessed from the battle preparation menu.

In the launch edition of the game, Anna cannot be interacted with further past her duty of running the shop. However, Anna is a playable character in the Wave 3 DLC. With this DLC installed, she can be recruited as early as Chapter 3, and her starting class is Myrmidon, Thief or Assassin depending your progression in the story. She also comes with a new Paralogue. However, she does not have support conversations with any character.

She possesses a major Crest of Ernest.

Engage[]

Another version of Anna appears in Engage as a playable character. Unlike her previous iterations, Elyos Anna is notably much younger, being a adolescent girl rather than a young woman. While looking for treasure, she found herself in the middle of a bandit base. When she is nearly caught, she decides to hide in a chest only to be discovered shortly after by the bandits. As luck would have it, Anna would be found by the Divine Dragon Alear and their forces. After teaming up with them and dispatching the bandits, Alear offers her to join their army.

Part of Anna's motivation to join Alear is to locate her family. Originally from a village in Elusia, she was separated from her relatives and has been forced to live on her own as she searches for them. In the aftermath of the war, it seems that she is able to reunite with her family who bears an uncanny resemblance to herself.

Heroes[]

In Fire Emblem Heroes, Anna plays a vital role in the story. A veteran commander of the Order of Heroes, she summons Kiran, whom she entrusts with the legendary relic Breidablik in order to summon Heroes and protect both the nation of Askr and the continent of Zenith from threats including the Emblian Empire. Her personal axe is named Nóatún.

In the Paralogue chapters, Anna, despite her status as commander, frequently contemplates and acts on a variety of comical money-making schemes. This is apparently due to the Order of Heroes constantly running low on funds.

Warriors[]

In Fire Emblem Warriors, Anna makes an appearance as a bonus character and does not play a role in the main story. She is unlocked by first completing any Illustration, which unlocks a special mission on that Illustration's respective History Mode map. Completing that mission unlocks Anna.

In her support conversation with Celica, Anna is overjoyed to the point of tears to be the very first Anna she has ever encountered, feeling detached from the other returning characters who have all met one of her family members at some point in their journeys. For the honor she gave her, Anna pledges to come to Valentia to sell Celica special goods at a discount.

In her support conversations with Caeda and Lyn, Caeda and Lyn mention Jake from Archanea and Elibe to Anna. Anna explains she never met anyone with that name, nor had a boyfriend with the name of Jake. Caeda and Lyn never knew that the Anna's from their world had other sisters.

Three Hopes[]

The Three Houses incarnation of Anna also appears in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. In this alternate timeline, Anna is first met in the Base Camp during Chapter 4 of all routes. Starting with Chapter 5, she will set up her Secret Shop and sell her wares if the player manages to locate her on the War Map. However, she will depart at the end of each chapter and must be located again in successive chapters through the same process.

Unlike Three Houses and the original Fire Emblem Warriors, Anna is not playable and does not have Supports. However, she does have cameos in the Support Conversations of other characters.

Personality[]

Despite being separate individuals, each Anna that appears shares many traits among each other. Most notably are their jovial nature and whimsical approach to conducting their business. Later appearances tend to focus more on her business acumen and a strong desire to acquire wealth, but maintain a lighthearted approach to her business models.

Shadow Dragon to Radiant Dawn[]

Due to her short appearances in her earliest incarnations, Anna is merely depicted at most as a humble shopkeeper who runs a Secret Shop. Despite some characters, such as Marth, pointing out that keeping her shop a secret would likely cripple her overall profits, Anna takes a lighthearted note of the concern and finds more fun out of her shop's secrecy.

While not applicable to every Anna, she is also paired with a man named Jake in her earliest appearances, whom she shares a love of traveling. Her relationship to him varies between games but is usually romantic with Genealogy of the Holy War going so far as the two discussing having children.

Awakening and Fates[]

Awakening marks the first time that Anna's existence in multiple games/worlds is explained as an entire clan of different women all named Anna, all of whom seemingly originate through the Outrealm Gate. Two different Anna are playable, one of which is a Trickster who is playable in Awakening and the other is an Outlaw who is playable in Fates.

While they are different individuals altogether, all Annas, both playable and non-playable, are driven by an almost instinctual need to make money, Anna is willing to do whatever it takes to sell an item, sometimes telling little-white lies, though often regrets using such tactics. While compelled by her desire for wealth, she takes pride in doing so through legitimate means and abhors schemes that would harm her customers. As a result, Anna is astute to observation of her customer's personality traits and can easily butter up any client into a sale. This fondness of gold even affects her love life, as for any Robin or Corrin who marries her quickly find out that her love of money remains more than her love of them, but she still shows that she loves them nonetheless.

As part of a large family, the Anna family share a strong familial bond with each other and respects each other's "territories", doing their best not to impede on each other's work, even ceasing their own plans the minute they learn that another Anna has dibs on the same schemes. Despite their similar appearances, each Anna is able to distinguish Annas from one another from an early age thanks to a special log that records all acts of every single Anna in history that every Anna is required to read. According to the Fates Anna, though their names are spelled the same, there are different pronunciations of their names to help distinguish each other during family gatherings. As a mother, of either Morgan in Awakening and Kana in Fates, it is shown that she does not force Robin or Corrin to name either of them Anna, but nonetheless stresses the importance of her huge extended family and its traditions to her daughters.

Three Houses[]

The Anna of Three Houses is one of many merchants that plies her trade in the marketplace at Garreg Mach Monastery. Like other Annas, she's very particular about money and willing to invest in ventures that might turn her a profit. This particular Anna agrees to a partnership with Pallardó, another merchant, who wants her to bankroll a treasure excavation, but she remains distrustful of him. It turns out her intuition is correct and Pallardó attempts to steal away the entire treasure haul, Anna's share included. After confronting Pallardó in battle and recovering as much of the treasure as she can, she elects to report him to the monastery.

Engage[]

The Anna of Engage is notably much younger than her previous incarnations and thus has a childish enthusiasm in her work. Due to being more of a fledgling merchant in this iteration, she is eager to test her skills and in most of her interactions with her allies, she is trying to broaden her horizons in terms of the goods she can sell from across Elyos. Anna dislikes when she is treated as a child, thus she projects a more mature demeanor and demands that others refer to her as Lady Anna for an unknown reason. Anna misses her family and worries she may never see them again, sometimes crying over this fear.

Heroes[]

Askran Anna is a much more serious version of Anna due to her role as commander of the Order of Heroes. She harbors some guilt towards Zacharias' disappearance and feels that she is responsible for it. This in turn makes her an emotional crutch for Alfonse and Sharena on the subject. She reins in Alfonse and Sharena multiple times throughout the Books of Heroes, keeping them safe and also preventing them from making rash decisions.

In various Paralogue chapters, Askran Anna retains many of the traits of the post-Awakening Anna when it comes to making money. She tries to take advantage of the numerous monthly festivities in Askr to make merchandise of the Heroes in costumes to earn funds for the Order and a bit of personal profit. Anna occasionally tries to keep these impulses in check, but she has been known to work up herself into a fever when trying to suppress these urges.

Base Class[]

Anna is a very versatile unit, possessing the Trickster class. When compared to Gaius, her closest counterpart, Anna trails behind Gaius in several stats, though she has better defensive stat growths over him and a modest magic growth, making her a decent Trickster healer. Her main quirk is that she has an incredible amount of Luck growth, on top of a decent speed and skill growths to make her a tricky unit to hit. Her resistance is also quite high, making her good for countering mage units. These traits usually make her more durable and more well suited for the Trickster class. It is recommended to give her Levin Swords to build off of her decent magic stat, though other swords work well with her decent strength cap and growth rate. She starts off with the Thief set of skills so she can pick locks right away and have a decent movement range with Movement +1.

Anna has the ability to promote to the Assassin class once she reaches level 10 and is a good option for Anna to be an offensive unit. She will lose a huge amount of her resistance, though this will get reallocated, along with some of her Magic loss, into her other stats making her faster and stronger. She can grab her only offensive skill, Lethality, in this class and Pass to help her swarm or escape swarms herself.

Reclassing[]

Anna's two reclassing sets are the Archer and Mage lines. As a Mage and Sage, Anna is lacking the magical potency of Miriel and Ricken but is a bit sturdier and much harder to hit. Same going with the Dark Knight classes aside from Magic and Luck, Anna's caps are similar to Ricken in all other stats. Anna can grab Focus for good solo attacks, Slow Burn to slowly build her dodging and accuracy, and Lifetaker for regeneration. Magic +2 can be good as well for some extra healing potency and Levin Sword damage if needed initially, but best left off once she builds up some decent stats.

The Archer class may seem tempting, but Virion has higher strength, skill, and speed growths, allowing him to hit harder and faster. Aside from some of the skills offered in that class, Anna really plays best in her other classes. The Bow Knight's Bowbreaker is great for her to use when equipped with a sword since she'll have no options to counterattack unless she is wielding her Levin Sword and the Sniper's Hit Rate +20 is decent to help Anna hit enemies and Bowfaire is useful if Anna becomes an Assassin.

Secret Book (Artwork)
Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.

Anna functions similarly to her Awakening version. She trails behind Niles, the other available Outlaw, in most stats with only her excellent Magic and Luck stats making up for these shortcomings. This can make things slightly problematic as she is physically frail and has middling strength, leaving her ability as an offensive unit initially in question. However, with time put into her, she can provide solid reliability and utility, especially since her entire class set revolves around utility, rather than offensive presence. She benefits from the Shining Bow which works off of her Magic growths and since Anna does not learn attacking skills in any of her classes, the penalty for using it is not a factor. One of Anna's best features is her Personal Skill, Make a Killing, which gives her a chance to obtain a random amount of gold whenever she kills an enemy. She is a great money generator and can help alleviate the need to grind Challenge maps or Ghostly Gold as much for money, especially for Conquest where challenge maps are unavailable. Her base class is the Outlaw, where she starts off with Locktouch and Movement +1 readily available. Both increase her utility to spread out your units to pick locks in multiple areas and do so quickly. Depending on the chapter in which she is recruited, she may not be entirely necessary for this purpose, but the option still remains if a Locktouch unit is needed.

Her promotions are the Adventurer and Bow Knight class. Adventurer is probably the best of her promotions to capitalize on her high magic growths, allowing her to be a great mobile healer and certainly fulfills the role of Adventurer healer better than Niles. She learns Lucky Seven to boost her Hit and Avoid during the first seven turns of a map and Pass to allow her to escape enemy swarming tactics or to barge through enemy obstacles to heal beleaguered allies. Bow Knight takes the path of a more offensive Anna. She now gains access to swords and can utilize Levin Swords very effectively and are a great option for Anna to have when dealing with Weapon Triangle matchups. She learns Rally Skill for some more utility and Shurikenbreaker which allows her to deal with Ninja and Maid units more effectively.

Secondary and Tertiary Class[]

Anna's Secondary class is the Apothecary class. The Apothecary provides more utility for Anna. In its promotions, Anna learns many great utility skills and most importantly, in the Merchant Class, she learns Profiteer, which allows her to acquire even more money for the first few turns of a map. Given her strong luck, it is almost guaranteed that she obtain Gold Bars fairly often and can be either kept for selling or expended to boost Anna's offense when using Spendthrift. Mechanist provides most notably Replicate which allows Anna to replicate her self and potentially obtain twice the amount of gold per turn using her Personal Skill.

Anna's Tertiary class is the Troubadour class. Troubadour allows Anna to be a full magic support. With promotion, Anna learns skills that primarily increase her potential as a supporting unit, the least notable being Tomebreaker which is of little use to Anna due to her high Resistance base and growth rendering Tomebreaker typically useless for her. Live to Serve is a decent skill for Anna should you choose to keep her in a support staffing role. With another promotion option of Strategist, her only magic wielding class, barring DLC, granting her Inspiration serves a similar role boosting her potential as a supporting unit. Rally Resistance provides more utility for her, once again, as a supporting unit.

Marriage Classes[]

If looking to expand her into an offensive role, Anna's biggest need is skills to boost her damage, especially attacking skills since Corrin is her only marriage partner and is the only way for her to acquire attacking skills without using online features. Other classes such as Archer, mainly for Bowfaire for additional damage, and Oni Savage, as Counter carries risk for her enemy to attack her at close range. High Luck activated skills such as Good Fortune from the Mercenary class, Miracle from Shrine Maiden, and Salvage Blow from Blacksmith syncs well with her high luck. Other than that, any sort of skill that can either boost her durability, provide good health regen, or provides more utility are well worth obtaining for her.

Recruitment[]

If one were to purchase the downloadable content for Three Houses, then Anna can be recruited from Chapter 3 onward, even during the War Phase. Unlike most characters, there are no requirements that Byleth must meet to recruit her.

If the downloadable content was not purchased, Anna will still appear as an NPC from Chapter 15 onward - in all four routes - where she will offer The Secret Shop quest and gives the player access to Anna's Secret Shop.

Secret Book (Artwork)
Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.

Much like in previous Fire Emblem titles, Anna is a peculiar character with plenty of utility at her disposal, but at a cost of power. In Three Houses, Anna has good Speed, Dexterity, Luck (along with her personal skill giving her an innate +5 Luck bonus), and high Charm, along with above-average Resistance, but has shaky growths everywhere else. Anna is highly unusual as she does not have the ability to form supports with any of the Three Houses cast, meaning that her ability to assist and receive assists in Linked Attacks and Gambit Boosts are significantly reduced compared to every other unit. She bears a Major Crest of Ernest, giving her a chance to negate enemy counterattacks whenever she is attacking with a weapon, and allowing her to use Heroes' Relics without New Game+.

Anna has a wide variety of skill strengths, including Sword, Axe, Bow, and Faith, as well as a budding talent in Riding, but has unfortunate weaknesses in Reason as well as, more importantly, Authority. While she struggles to improve her authority, her high Charm growth will make any gambit more powerful, but gaining the necessary ranks to use more powerful Gambits will require extensive time and focus. All of this gives Anna plenty of versatility, but also makes it tricky to put her into any Master classes besides Holy Knight (which tends to be an under-performing class) or Bow Knight (she can find success in this class, but faces stiff competition from Leonie, Shamir, etc.). Her spell lists are also rather quirky; she has access to Meteor, but will have a hard time reaching it due to her weakness in Reason. She will also have a harder time using it effectively because of her inferior Magic stat compared to Dorothea and Hanneman. Her Faith spells include Ward and Rescue, which are both very helpful utility spells. Again, however, she has inferior Magic to Flayn and Constance, so Anna's Rescue will have limited reach. In terms of Combat Arts, Anna has access to Break Shot, Soulblade, and Hexblade, the latter two of which allow her to deal magic-based damage even while in strength-based classes. With the addition of the Cindered Shadows DLC, Anna gets easy access to the Trickster class, which is arguably her best late-game build due to her utility focus (having access to Foul Play and Rescue will make her a great choice for pulling allies out of sticky situations).

Regardless of her final build, she molds well into most classes given her even stat distribution, albeit lacking some of the raw damage that most specialized units would have. Given her subject strengths, making Anna an Assassin could take advantage of her high Speed, good Dexterity (for Lethality), and high Luck and can be paired up with pass from her budding talent in riding for a deadly combo. However, Building Anna this way could present Strength growth issues. One could also try classing her as a Sniper, which could improve her Strength and Luck growths. One could also even class her into a Warrior to augment her Strength, though she won't compete with Hilda, Caspar, or other axe-wielders for raw damage. Spending time in the Brigand class will prove beneficial to her as learning Death Blow will give her some much needed Strength boosts when initiating an attack in any ending physical class. She can perform well enough as a Priest and Bishop due to her strengths in Faith, but her unique spell pool may hold her back compared to characters like Mercedes or Flayn. However, having access to Rescue does mean that she can help pull wayward allies back from the frontline or pair with Manuela, Linhardt or Lysithea for the tried and true Rescue/Warp spell combo. The Miracle skill from the Priest class has a decent activation rate given her Luck growths, which could potentially allow her to cheat death whilst facing a particularly powerful foe. Her Reason weakness does mean that she will grow slowly in the Mage class, but if time can be allotted into mastering the class, Fiendish Blow will give her a much needed boost in magical damage.

Overall, Anna makes for a good jack-of-all-trades, but a master-of-none. Her main utility is her speed, but her lack of Support chains and below-average damage capabilities mean she is unlikely to outpace several other members of the roster.

Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.

Anna is a rather peculiar unit as her starting class and offensive growths clash with each other. She has incredibly high base Dexterity, Speed, and Luck growths which greatly complement high offensive classes for solid damage output and her HP growth is high as well. However, her Strength growth is a mere 15 while her Magic scores 50, the highest growth rate for Magic out of the entire cast. As such, Anna is actually better suited to be a Mage style character rather than her default Axe Fighter, though she could theoretically make it work. Unlike her previous iterations, Anna has eight total Supports with the main cast, thus she can receive bonuses from more units in combat, making this one of her strongest versions ever.

Her starting class of Axe Fighter makes her a Backup Battle Style unit and thus she can contribute in combat against enemies she is adjacent to when her allies initiate a battle against said unit. While majority of the Axes cannot make use of her high Magic growths, she can use a Hurricane Axe to deal magic damage, can Break Lance foes, and can Smash. Her personal skill Make a Killing gives her a chance to obtain 500 Gold whenever she defeats a foe, with the activation based off her Luck stat. As such, Anna makes for an indispensable gold generator to fund obtaining weapons and forging for stronger effects. As mentioned, Anna's strongest class to make full use of her offenses would be as a Mage and its promotions mainly due to the much wider range of offensive options rather than being locked to one or two weapons in other classes.

One of the best rings to give Anna is the Ring of the Caring Princess in order to boost her overall magic damage with tomes. The Ring of the Dawn Maiden gives her stronger healing with Staves, and gives nice utility. Some skills from the Ring of the Hero-King and Ring of the Lady of the Plains, namely skills like Perceptive, Alacrity and Speedtaker all greatly complement her high Spd stats.

Overall, Anna is an incredibly potent unit offensively and is one of, if not the strongest raw magic users in the game once she is put into such classes. Her utility as a Gold generator also makes her highly valuable in all settings, especially in harder difficulties where opportunities to farm gold are less frequent and the need for stronger weapons/higher forge ratings become more important.

Base Set[]

Anna is one of the Askran Trio that players of Heroes receives at the very beginning of the game. Of the three, she is the Axe wielder with high speed, which is a rarity with Axe users, though her semi-low Atk prevents her from making effective use of that speed. She does favor Res of her defensive stats, but it does very little to her performance overall. Her legendary axe Nóatún has innate Escape Route 2 which is a quirky skill that allows her a plethora of interesting combo positioning play once she is weakened, especially with the right support skills. With an Effect Refine, she instead has a Flier Formation-like effect, allowing her an interesting teleport effect, but is more a gimmick than anything.

She has Astra for her special skill, but her attack is not high enough to use it nor its other variation Glimmer. Vantage 3 can work in interesting ways with Nóatún. Finally Spur Res 3 for good supportive assistance with allies.

Anna has the makings for a great unit given her high Spd, but like the other Askran trio members, she is hindered by the inability to acquire copies of herself for merging and IVs. Anna was among the best of her unit type in the earliest days of Heroes but she has slowly been powercrept by many Axe users to be released since.

Counters[]

Red units in general are Anna's biggest bane. Fast Reds like Ayra and Mia outspeed her outright while powerful Reds like Chrom and even Alfonse can smash through her low defense in a single blow. Even if Anna is given the the chance to counter them, her middling Atk prevents any form of meaningful damage before she goes down. Red mages like Sanaki and occasional Celica can also obliterate her with a powerful Triangle Adept boost.

Skill Inheritance Options[]

Nóatún is Anna's niche weapon and using its teleportation abilities requires skills that benefit from low health including Brazen Atk/Def for general combat or even Brazen Atk/Res to maximize her good defensive stat against some Dragons. Fury otherwise is a flat boost that also slowly whittles down her health. Desperation uses her low HP to give her immediate follow ups to her initiated attacks. For her other skills Reposition is the standard Support skill and Moonbow gives her the needed boost to cut through enemy defense. Slot C is a bit flexible as Anna can run Hone, Drives, Spurs, Tactics and even Ploy skills if desired.

Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.
Base Set[]

New Year Anna is a seasonal Red Bow Infantry unit easily compared to Igrene. Her stand out stats are her incredible 40 neutral Spd and 37 Res, giving her a strong advantage over mages. Her modest 34 Atk works nicely with her Spd to give her a moderate damage output. Her only weak stat is her Def, which sits at 16, leaving her incredibly vulnerable to physical assaults. Overall, New Year Anna performs admirably against mages, especially green ones as she can take hits from even the hardest hitting ones like Thrasir or Legendary Celica and retaliate hard or outright initiate and demolish them.
Fortune Bow carries the flier effectiveness bow effect and, at the start of her turn, any foe that has at least three or less Res than Anna and is adjacent to another foe, that foe loses 5 Def/Res until the start of their next action. This skill helps against tight formation enemies such as armor units and with her 37 neutral Res, she can inflict this penalty on a wide range of units.
Rally Def/Res+ grants a Def/Res +6 visible boost to an ally she uses the skill on. Sabotage Attack works similarly to her bow, inflicting Atk-7 when the foe is under the same activation condition as the Fortune Bow. Attack Speed Gap grants a visible Atk/Spd +5 buff to the ally with the highest Atk/Spd sum, giving her ally a massive offensive boost.

Counters[]

New Year Anna's incredibly low physical Bulk is her biggest weakness as she will go down to just about any and all physical units save a very small select group of green units. Blue units in general give her immense difficulty as the Red coloring of her bow gives them additional damage against her. Dragon units are also quite problematic as they target her lower bulk.

Skill Inheritance[]

New Year Anna can either run as a Sabotage debuffer or an aggressive Firesweep Bow. In either case, inheriting Iceberg for her special is an excellent choice given its high value, though the Firesweep variant can take Moonbow for high Def enemies.
The Sabotage debuffer is already set for success with her base kit alone and only requires Fury for its flat stat boost, mainly her offenses and Res. The recoil can be easily mitigated by proper healing allies. Giving the Fortune Bow a Res refine also further helps with the Sabotage build's goals. Finally, giving her Speed Ploy for her Seal can effectively give her a quad stat debuff, which is a rarity amongst the units in the game.
The Firesweep Bow build overhauls her kit and mainly focuses on maximizing her player turn offense. Life and Death or Swift Sparrow both serve of boosting her offensive stats during her initiation and the lost bulk or enemy phase offense lost is rendered moot by the function of the bow. Lull Speed Defense removes enemy Spd and Def boosts while further inflicting debuffs to those stats ensures that she can double attack and hit a wider range of enemies harder.

Base Set[]

Apotheosis Anna harkens back to the final DLC of Fire Emblem Awakening as an incredible lance infantry unit, a combination which is highly underrepresented, giving her a proper advantage over the others who already exist in that combination. Her offensive stats are incredible sitting at neutral 35 Atk and 40 Spd respectively, meaning that not only does she hit hard, but she can double quite a number of the cast. She is incredibly strong as a sword check as some of the fastest Reds find themselves unable to double her and are hit by her color advantage over them. Her overall bulk is decent, sitting at neutral 28 Def and 31 Res. Both are workable, but she cannot take long, drawn out battles. Apotheosis Anna is a unit well worth investing in for long term play.
Apotheosis Spear grants Anna a flat +3 Spd boost, bringing her default Spd to 43 without factoring in buffs from allies. She also always has a Guidance-like effect for herself, allowing her to move to any space adjacent to an ally within two spaces of her, giving her deceptive mobility. Finally, if she is in combat against an enemy who is at least above 75% of their maximum HP, she gains Atk/Spd +5.
Rally Atk/Spd+ gives an ally Atk/Spd +6 when she uses it on them. Attack Speed Form grants her Atk and Spd based on the number of allies within two spaces of her +1, maximizing at a +7 stat boost to both stats if used on a mode that allows more than 4 units like Aether Raids or Grand Conquests. Attack Speed Ruse inflicts Atk/Spd -5 and adds a【Guard】debuff on enemies within Apotheosis Anna's four cardinal directions if she uses her assist skill on an ally. Finally Joint Drive Speed grants +4 Spd to allies within two spaces in combat and grants herself the same boost if there is at least one ally within two spaces of her during combat.

Counters[]

Apotheosis Anna is an absolute terror when she starts a fight, but battles of attrition are her biggest weakness as she loses her spear effect once her foe go under 75% health for future skirmishes. Her bulk is not exactly weak, but she is by no means a tank, thus high bulk green can withstand her attacks like Surtr, Rinkah, and Edelgard. Some of the armor greens can pack skills that allow them to double attack her, thus rendering her Spd less of an issue in terms of damage output. Distant Counter works great on Apotheosis Anna, thus attacking her through uncounterable offense like a Dazzling Staff user can wear her down slowly enough for a suitable ally to take her down can get to her.

Skill Inheritance[]

Apotheosis Anna is quite flexible and can be built as a tank or a hyper offensive unit given her stats. Regardless of build Reposition is a given as it is the universal assist skill that allows her to place an ally behind her, often out of danger or so she can dealt with them.
The tanky build is for the most part incredibly high investment. It runs Distant Counter, making it even more difficult to initiate on her safely. Given her high speed, Repel or Close Call not only reduces damage from most, if not all enemies, but it also allows her to distance herself from the foe in a pinch if she is particularly injured. Out of all of the skill on this set, these two are absolute musts and have no real budget option alternatives. Noontime or Sol gives herself regeneration. Pulse Smoke slows the special cooldown of all enemies within two spaces of her after combat, further slowing her foes from unleashing their power boost. If not, Attack Smoke works nicely to reduce the enemy Atk, making it harder to damage her in the process.
The hyper offensive build pushes her aggressive playstyle with skills like Galeforce to run down her foes one after the other, especially with a Flashing Blade seal to accelerate it. Swift Sparrow boosts her Atk/Spd when initiating combat. With Swift Sparrow 3, this is a strong Atk+6 and Spd+7 boost. Once she sustains enough damage, Desperation allows her to immediately perform her follow-up attack before her foe can counterattack. Once she can get her special primed to go, Time's Pulse helps to further accelerate the cooldown if one can obtain a unit with the skill. If not, maintaining Joint Hone Speed is a good budget option until then.

Base Set[]

The Anna of Engage is accompanied by the Anna of Awakening to form the Harmonized Halloween Anna. As a Axe Flying unit, she is blessed with great mobility and powerful offensive stats to make her an excellent player phase unit. Sitting with neutral 44 Atk and 47 Spd stats, Halloween Anna hits incredibly hard. Her mixed bulk is decent at 71 Physical and 67 Magical, but nothing that makes her particularly tanky. Her value as the first Harmonized Hero applicable to an Engage season of Resonant Battle gaves her tremendous value as a whole for the first five months of her existence and she holds her own solidly nonetheless.
Payday Pouch gives Halloween Anna an innate +3 to her Spd, giving her 50 natural Spd. If she has at least 3 different non-stat Bonuses on her, she gains Canto (2), allowing her to move two spaces after combat. Based on the number of allies within two spaces of her at the start of her turn, she gains further Bonuses. With at least 1, she gains【Null Follow-Up】, ensuring that she can perform Follow-Up Attacks and prevent her foe from gaining Follow-Up Attacks due to their skills if she has higher Spd than them. If she has at least 2 allies, she gains【Hexblade】, allowing her to target the lower defensive stat of her foe. If she initiates combat or is within two spaces of an ally, she gains +5 to her four core stats and Atk/Spd bonus depending on a 25% of her foe's Atk Stat -8. Finally, if she has at least 3 or more non-stat Bonuses on her, she reduces damage of non-Special damage reduction effects on her foe by 50%, allowing her to partially pierce Damage reduction skills.
Her Harmonized Skill grants【Resonance: Blades】and【Resonance: Shields】, giving Atk/Spd+4 and Def/Res+4 respectively plus foes cannot make a follow-up attack, as well as healing 99 HP to herself and any ally who come from Engage or Awakening. Also, she immediately completely charges her Special.
Halloween Anna coems with Miracle, allowing her to survive an attack and with her Harmonized Skill, can charge it immediately if needed in a pinch. Attack Speed Prime at its fourth tier grants and Atk/Spd bonus so long as she has a【Bonus】active on her. She gains more Atk/Spd depending on how many individual non-stat bonuses she has, maximizing at Atk/Spd+9. If she hast at least four【Bonus】on her, she can counterattack regardless of range. Gambit inflicts Spd/Def-4 on foe during foe and, if she can trigger her Special, she deals damage equal to the skill's cooldown -2 x5, maximizing at 15 non-lethal damage. It also reduces damage from attacks during combat and from area-of-effect specials by her cooldown percentage x10, maximizing at 50%. Attack Speed Rein Snap inflicts Atk/Spd-4 on her foe within two spaces during combat. If she is within two spaces of an melee range Armor or Infantry unit at the start of her turn, she gains one additional space of movement and also gives it to said ally movement types that are within two spaces of her.

Counters[]

Halloween Anna is dependent on gaining non-stat【Bonuses】to activate both her Weapon and Atk/Spd Prime, thus disabling them depowers her greatly. Most of her skills also require that she be within range of her allies to activate some bonuses as well, thus she is vulnerable once she isolates herself. While she can counterattack them in some instances, being a flying unit leaves her vulnerable to Bows and other weapons with flying-effective damage. Finally, she has no means of stopping Windsweep effects, making her ability to counterattack regardless of range moot in some instances.

Skill Inheritance[]

Halloween Anna has a well-synergized starting kit requiring only her Support Skill to be filled, of which Reposition does the job.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE[]

Although Anna does not make a direct appearance in name, a store clerk that works for Hee Ho Mart bears her likeness, including her trademark pose. She plays a small role in side stories during the course of the game and is only ever referred to as "Salesclerk."

Eventually, the empty checkout station becomes manned by a second Anna dressed in a dark purple and black version of the HHM uniform and a Black Frost mask. (Black Frost is a derivative of Jack Frost, the in-game mascot of Hee Ho Mart as well as the mascot of Atlus, who developed the game.) She is only visible to Mirage Masters and sells rarer and more expensive items. She also appears in the Idolaspheres to offer sidequests in which she requests the party harvest a specific material from a specific enemy and return the collected items to her for a reward. The Black Frost Anna also speaks like Jack Frost/Black Frost, commonly using Jack Frost's catchphrase "Hee ho!" as well as ending her sentences with "ho."
