Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Super Smash Brothers: Brawl (大乱闘 スマッシュ ブラザーズ X, literally: Great Melee Smash Bros. X) is the third and most recent installment in the Smash Bros. series, exclusively for the Nintendo Wii. Apart from it's updated graphics, items, stages and character rooster, few major changes have been made to the game since it's predecessor, Super Smash Bros. Melee.
Fire Emblem Characters
Marth, the main character of Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi, once again makes his return as a secret character in the SSB series. As a character, his appearance and moveset have been virtually unchanged from melee, the largest differences most likely being the shortened length of his Falchion and the change in animation for his ability "Shield Breaker". Marth still relies entirely on his quick swordplay and ability to easily form combos. Marth's Final Smash, Critical Hit, causes him to dash forwards and strike a single enemy (multiple enemies if they are close enough) and deal an instant KO. Upon striking, a Fire Emblem-esque health counter appears, dropping rapidly as if the character had taken a great deal of damage, though this is only shown for the effect.
Ike, the protagonist of both Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, makes his SSB debut as a default starting character in SSBB. Wielding the Ragnell as his weapon, Ike brings his signature ability, Aether, into the game as well. While his swordplay is much slower than that of Marth, Ike is a much heavier character with stronger attacks by far. His Final Smash, Great Aether, strikes multiple opponents within a small area high above the stage. From there, he deals several strong slashes, brgins the enemy to the ground, and finishes the combo with a large explosion. His sword is set aflame for the entire duration of the ability. Though they have different movesets, it has been speculated that Ike has taken the place of Roy from the previous SSB installment, Super Smash Bros. Melee.
Lyn (or Lyndis), one of two main protagonists from Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken makes an appearance in the game not as a playable character, but as an item known as an Assist Trophy. Upon appearing, Lyn charges up her Mani Katti and vanishes, appearing beside an enemy to preform what resembles her critical attack from Rekka no Ken. In SSBB, the Assist Trophy of Lyn is known for it's high damage rating, knock back and accuracy.
Fire Emblem Stages
Unlike most stages featured in Super Smash Brothers series, the sole Fire Emblem stage is not set in a particular location in the Fire Emblem universe, but of a generalized theme of many of it's games. The stage initially takes place atop a castle surrounded by lush rolling forests. As the name implies, the castle is currently under siege; large flaming rocks rain down on the structure from nearby catapults. After a short time, the castle rooftop caves in and the players fall into the interior, an area which appears to be a throne room containing breakable statues. The third and final transition brings the players down into a lava filled cave, where they stand atop a large stone balancing over the lava pits. Oddly enough, the players seem to "fall" back onto the roof shortly after entering the lava caves.
Fire Emblem Music
Fire Emblem Theme
The Fire Emblem Theme is more or less exactly as it sounds, the theme of Fire Emblem. Orchestrated, slightly revamped and with a Latin choir.
With Mila's Divine Protection (Celica Map 1)
Mila's Divine Protection originates from the game Fire Emblem Gaiden, being the second installation in the series. The song itself as had the main Fire Emblem theme integrated into it.
Attack isn't one song, but a combination of two different scores. The song begins with "Strike", the common attack theme heard when engaging in combat, and transitions into "Rise to the Challenge", one of the boss battle themes.
Prepare to Advance
Prepare to Advance is the song heard when in the pre-battle screen in the game Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. The song has been remixed, revamped and slightly lengthened for Brawl.
Winning Road: Roy's Hope
Shadow Dragon Medley
The Shadow Dragon Medley contains several songs, most of which are fairly short, from the original Fire Emblem Game, Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi.
Ike's Theme is one of the few songs which have made it into Brawl unedited from their original versions. As one can easily assume, it is the theme of the protagonist, Ike, from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.
Against the Dark Knight
Crimean Army Sortie
One of the songs heard in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. The score has been unedited, as with many of it's fellow Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn counterparts featured in Brawl.
Victory is Near
Similar in content to "Winning Road: Roy's Hope" as this song is played when the player is close to completing certain maps of the game Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.
Fire Emblem (Melee)
Originally just called "Fire Emblem", this song first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee as the only Fire Emblem song available and the secret track at the Hyrule Temple stage. The song has been left unchanged after it's transition from Melee to Brawl.
