Super Smash Bros Ultimate: Chrom Gets His Day

In today’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct, we got plenty of news featuring new incoming characters, stages and more; However, one bit of news sure caught the eye of us here at the Forest.

Chrom finally has a position in the Roster, sporting an Echo Fighter origin (based on Roy). He appears to have a mix of battle styles, using moves similar to Roy’s Dancing Blade (Side-B), as well as Ike’s Aether (Up-B), so he’ll be sure to obtain interest of Fire Emblem fans as a neat, and finally playable, presence in the Smash universe. Check out his SSBU Character Page here.

*Edit; An item from the Fire Emblem universe has been added, the Killing Edge, which has more power based on its glow timing. It’s not explained how the glow is triggered/charged.

  • Was it just me, or did it sound like Chrom wasn’t voiced by Matthew Mercer?

    • O.H. X-1990

      It’s just you, misguided child, Chrom is still voices by Matthew Mercer. Why don’t you fix your brain a little?

      • Because I don’t have a brain repair garage nearby.

        • O.H. X-1990

          That’s your loss. Serves you right for being a mindless kid who doesn’t know any better.

          • Yeah, it’s a hard life, but someone gotta live it.

          • O.H. X-1990

            Or die as you live, like a dummy.

          • *sadface*

          • O.H. X-1990

            Okay, I made that last comment too dark. Delete!

          • Didn’t think you had a limit 😛

          • O.H. X-1990

            You’re still the one to blame for not knowing any better, kiddo. Go back to your pre-school, this website isn’t a place for you. Ha ha.

          • I’ll pretend those “kiddo”-comments gets under my skin: I think I know your age, and you’re in no position to call me ” kiddo”, sir 😛

          • O.H. X-1990

            Oh, by the way, you’re blocked. You lose. Ha ha ha ha. Good riddance.

  • Should’ve been Alm.

    • Diovani Estivalet

      Celica as Robin Echoe FIghter? She will not have the limit uses for tomes and sword, but her attacks will do less damage.
      At this point, I don’t believe Smash Ultimate will have another Fire Emblem fighter… unless DLC happens.

      • that, or make her pichu-esque. though I’d prefer a full on mage in that case. I’m also not ruling out a FE16 rep just yet, I mean heck, FE6 had a year left until release when melee first came out.

    • O.H. X-1990

      We have enough Lords in this Smash game, kiddo. Alm is just not popular enough to join Smash.

      • That’s rich. Smash has already made Roy out to be some important character when he isn’t. Alm may not be popular enough but at least he’s a more interesting addition than Chrom.

        • O.H. X-1990

          Too bad for you, kiddo, Sakurai is done adding any more Fire Emblem characters. Chrom is where Sakurai draws the line, 7 swordfighters from the FE series is more than enough, 8 is too many, so your “Alm” request is rejected, kiddo. Ha ha.

          • You know, it’s possible to get your point across without namecalling.

            Besides, I’m not even saying that Alm should be included alongside Chrom. However, I do think there is a very good possibility of a FE16 character being added, either in the base game or as DLC, in order to hype up the release of their game.

          • Ikewise

            You call people “kiddos” and still believe Sakurai, like the Easter Bunny, is in complete charge of who’s added to the roster? He obviously had to add corrin for promotional reasons and there’s no way to know where whoever’s in charge will draw the line.
            Either that or he has poor taste in regards to FE. lol

            Also Pebbicle wanted Alm INSTEAD of this FE13 weenie.

          • O.H. X-1990

            Ah, but Sakurai IS in charge of who’s added to the roster, he created the Super Smash Bros. series, it’s his decision, not yours, and when he says goes. Which is why Chrom, the last sword fighter from the FE franchise, is where Sakurai draws the line.

            Also, that’s your gay friend’s loss for whining and begging for Alm, the other sword fighter, and the non-popular one at that, to be added in Smash, when clearly, Chrom was chosen instead. In fact, that’s your loss too. Ha ha.

          • Ikewise

            Lol, clearly you’re a little angry because some people don’t like your boyfriend Chrom, so I will forgive you for that.

            Sakurai is not really in charge, there’s a whole team behind Smash Bros making decisions.
            I WISH they had drawn the line after adding Lucina but there’s no way of knowing when they’ll stop adding bad FE reps.

          • O.H. X-1990

            Joke’s on you, Chrom is a fictional character, so a fictional character can’t be my “boyfriend”. You and your gay kind are just butthurt because Sakurai chose Chrom over Alm. You were always whining and complaining like a butthurt gay face.

            And yes, Sakurai is definitely in charge, he tells his team what to do. He makes decisions on what to add, and then he tells his team to do the work. Sakurai is like “I want Chrom to be Roy’s Echo Fighter”, and then his team is like “Yes sir!”. In other words, adding the most popular characters such as Robin, Lucina, and Chrom was Sakurai’s idea, not his team. And this is as far as they go, 8 FE reps are too many, so your “Alm” request has been rejected by Sakurai. You lose, gay troll. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

          • Ikewise

            Oh, I’m just laughing my ass off over you preaching this ridiculous speech acting like a 13-year-old edgelord.

            You’re a reeeal winner, you know, lol.
            Have a nice day. 😀

          • O.H. X-1990

            You’re gonna puss out already? Ha ha ha ha ha ha, I always knew that I’m right and you would give up and cry, like a sissy little toddler you are, because I don’t see you making a better speech of your own, as you’re too scared to do so.

            Buh-bye, butthurt troll. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, victory is mine.

  • 100%B-Type

    I wonder if he will help with Robins Final Smash or Robin get some Grima Final Smash.

    • Kl1

      Grima Final Smash would be pretty dope.

    • Daniel Smith

      Give me the Grima final smash please!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 3-13 Archer

    They keep spamming Awakening even in non-FE games. Honestly, I’m more hyped about the killing edge: killer weapons were the thing that could make a random mook an actual threat.

  • As a dedicated RoyBoy, I’ve gotta point out that Roy’s Side Special isn’t actually the Dancing Blade, it’s the Double Edge Dance. Not trying to sound nitpicky, but…Roy.

  • Ikewise

    The lamest announcement this direct.

    • O.H. X-1990

      Your loss, butthurt child. Ha ha ha ha.

  • Raphael Lippi

    That was not aether.

  • O.H. X-1990

    I guess Chrom finally got his chance.
