Edelgard begins the trailer blitzing several enemy soldiers with fiery attacks that scorch the ground. This looks to be her Musou (read Super) attack. It finishes with a wild-looking flame tornado.
Hubert shows off some more of his dark magic, which causes dark arrows to rain down in a straight line. The second part is a demonstration of Hubert’s personal skill: his spells have a chance of piercing foes with spikes. Afterwards, Hubert can detonate the spikes at will.
Next is Dorothea who is presumably using the Mage class, with several differences from Annette.
A running theory currently is that characters’ preferred classes allow for unique attacks in that class for that character. We’ve seen that characters have skills that include all kind of effects (eg. Ashe can generate a wind field that traps enemies in the air, Hilda can charge up attacks while drawing in foes). So there’s likely quite a bit mages can do even with similar base kits.
Her big attack seems to include using music and meteors in a devastating combo. You can also see Thoron included in her showcase.

Like before, the class profiles appear to describe each character’s personal skill in the second half.
VA: Yuichi Hose Heir to Duke Fraldarius. Cynical and sharp-tongued, with an especially poor attitude towards his childhood friend Dimitri and father Rodrigue, but can be reasoned with. Dedicated to honing his sword skills and enjoys challenging those who are strong.
One of Felix’s preferred classes. Can deliver powerful sword attacks. Also, Felix’s attacking speed is boosted whenever he evades, so he can mess with foes with his rapid sword fighting while dodging their attacks!
Although most of the information is pretty straightforward and self-explanatory, there are a few interesting nuggets. Namely, they’ve recently shared profiles for some of the already shown characters and classes. (For the record, some of this info was already shared by Famitsu.)
Below are translations of those tweets.
Regarding the class profiles, the second half is likely referring to each character’s personal abilities. Judging by the information from Famitsu.
VA: Tasuku Hatanaka & Miyu Tomita A solitary mercenary. They sought to become a famed swordfighter, but faced Jeralt’s Mercenaries on a mission and was felled by the Ashen Demon. While training to seek revenge, they met the Officer’s Academy students in the woods.
Protagonist x Fleugel
Here are some action scenes featuring the protagonist’s exclusive class. Characterised by its nimble swordplay while dual wielding swords. The protagonist also has other hidden powers. Please look out for more details in the future.
