I just noticed in this scan, at the screenshot with the dialogue You Win!, there is a lightly armored Lance user alongside the magic user. Do you think its promoted Donnie, a Halbedier, or a dismounted Cavalier?

They appear to be using both Donny and Liz through the whole dual tag. Clothes also look like Donny's.

I just noticed that in dual tag, it has no mention of Liz's HP. Do you think both units share HP in dual tag and that's why Donny's appears so high? Would be WONDERFUL for training.

I can't make out his head as its obscured by the congratulations message.

Right above the N, you can see most of his helmet.

That would make so much more sense.

I actually love his design! Some of the characters look very generic to me, so I'm glad he has a unique flair to him with the bucket helmet.

WTF. I typed "ドニ" into two translators and it came out Denis. o_O The Japanese write some names just plain weird in katakana...
I think I am still going to stick with Donny until the translation. >.>

It doesn't resemble Dennis. "Denis" is supposed to be pronounced like it's French; the kana make sense then.

e.g. http://ja.wikipedia....リス・ドニ

'Duh-nee' would be the French. The kana sounds more like dahn-nee.

Look here, I am not the arbiter who decided on how things should be Japanized; I am merely stating the facts (btw "Donny" doesn't sound exactly like ドニ either but you don't see anyone complaining about that).

To be entirely correct, the kana rhymes with "Tony" (I had thought the kid's name was Tony until I noticed the dakuten).

To be fair, this is likely not that big of a difference to people who don't speak western languages. It would've sounded the same to my mom, and it would've sounded the same to me a few years back when my English is horrendous.

But it's not about how it sounds, when the problem comes (for English-speakers) with the localized name:

1)Donny
2)Dennis

which both have radically different pronunciations for common English players. And I don't think 'ドニ' is in anyway as confusing to localize as lofa Yofa was.

I agree with this, since I'm a French person.


And stop talking about "Dennis". Dennis... Dennis... Denning? Posted Image

Well, I'll probably use him too.

There's a picture of Donny's map sprite in the communication section of the official site. We can also see Frederick as a General.

So what do you think? Is he a Soldier or Trainee?

Yeah his sprite looks just like the Recruit sprite in FE8.


I'm really hoping he'll have FE2 Est growths and the ability to promote to a Halberdier.
