If he's not trying to hide his identity since he introduced himself as Marth, then what's up with the mask?

I'm thinking doppelganger more and more. All this "He claims to be Marth... but who is he?!" seems to indicate that.

Zombie Marth...Seriously?

He's way too skinny...that's what i can see, maybe he's a fan of marth or something, who wants to be like him "stupid guessing"

I hope he's not marth, they should give some space to Krom...i guess

and Marth have many games already :facepalm:

oh a group? more than one masked "marth"?



i'm lost :Wrys:

Marth is long dead; a doppelganger wouldn't be able to just pass for him. More likely is that a descendant is taking on the name of a famous ancestor.

Time travel,duh.

Seriously? I agree with the whole "Ancestor taking his name" thing.

Calls themselves. Is no one even remotely recognizing Roro here?

It's more like TheEnd doesn't utilize the distinction between singular and plural third person pronouns in English. There is no mention of a plural "they" in the Japanese text; TheEnd is just using the ambiguous "they" because we supposedly don't know if Marth is a male or a female.

Also, the kanji for "to call oneself" may also mean "to impersonate."

I was thinking the wording was more to Marth being an unidentified character. Since you'd use "They" and "They call Themselves" for a single person if you didn't know their gender.

This.

Seriously guys, reading too much on a quick translation isn't going to get you anywhere.

I just noticed something looking at the scan. In two of the screenshots that have Masked Marth, the facial portraits look different. Look closely at the hair, the style is different. Perhaps its possible that there is more than one Masked Marth?

The one in the bottom is from a cutscene.

that would contribute to the Roro factor that Celice was talking about

are there scans of My Unit out btw? i haven't really been keeping up with all the news, but what if they decided to incorporate My Unit into the story as saving Krom and is this masked dude. this would be a really dumb theory if a My Unit scan has already been out and identified

Looking at it closer, I believe you are right.

Now this was an unexpected twist. What's the point of the mask if he is just coming out and saying he is marth. I actually think the zombie theory is a good guess. All the zombies seem to have red eyes so hiding those eyes could be the purpose of the mask, it would also explain how he is alive after all these years. Or it could just be a descendant or someone else disguising themselves as marth, who knows. Or maybe he just doesn't want anyone other than krom recognizing him,I really have no idea.

Yes. Heck in the intro we saw earlier, MU and Marth were onscreen at the same time. So, no MU is not the Marth imposter.

Well, I didn't say I was expecting this. Although, I think that this Marth will just be some random cosplayer, pretending to be the Legendary Hero.

If this Marth is a fake, they must be a pretty good fake if they could save Krom from a zombie onslaught. Actually, zombies are pretty crap enemies and Krom is probably Level 1-5 around that time. Hmmm... I dunno anymore.

or the fake could just be getting carried by Falchion, that is if the sword he wields is truly the original Falchion and not a new gen forge or look a like

since this game is based in akaneia i wouldn't be surprised if they rehashed "a thief steals a legendary artifact" story, since after the original marth died, it's likely his followers enshrined his tomb with the falchion etc., an ideal target for thieves looking for treasure.

Does it bother anyone else how different "The Falchion" looks? It is only really similar in name at this point.

Marusu?

How about "Mars?" Could be a completely different person and/or completely different hero and/or completely different "legendary Falchion" reference.

"Marusu" is also the katakana used for the original Marth's name. Also the game is set in Archanea (at least partially) and Krom is a descendant of Marth. So no way any of that is coincidental.
