Manga adaptations[edit]

I don't think we really got anywhere a few months ago, but would it be a good idea to list the various manga adaptations, or at least the popular ones and show people that they exist. We've already mentioned the anime and TCG, so I think it seems fair to mention the manga. Aveyn Knight (talk) 22:44, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

As long as you've got the sources ready, just go for it. Of course, continuous prose with explanations would be preferable to listings/bullet points. Ashnard Talk Contribs 16:09, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I made a start. Do you think those sources are alright? It might be better if there was an additional English search for the Hasha no Tsurugi manga. I'll probably look for one (or, if it's allowed, make one) later. Aveyn Knight (talk) 19:40, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Nice job. Of course, those sources aren't IGN, but it's probably the best that can be managed with an obscure topic. I know nothing of the Japanese site, but it looks authentic enough. Ashnard Talk Contribs 16:11, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Affinity[edit]

One of the wikis specifically devoted to Fire Emblem states that certain affinities oppose each other, but doesn't go into much detail. Can anyone tell me more about this? Specifically, which affinities oppose each other.64.5.2.17 (talk) 19:39, 4 October 2011 (UTC)Tyrnigan

Not one of the first Tactical RPGs[edit]

The first tactical rpgs were done in the Dungeons and Dragons Franchise in the late 80s, the first fire emblem game came out in japan in 1990. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.139.214.117 (talk) 03:00, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

I added in "eastern style" to clarify Fire Emblem as the first Tactical JRPG or Simulation RPG. The D&D games are western style, whereas Fire Emblem is eastern style. Aether7 (talk) 22:18, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Recurring characters in the Fire Emblem series[edit]

A number of the Fire Emblem character lists have multiple issues tagged to them. To address the issues with length, I suggest splitting off characters that have extensive recurring roles in more than one game (This would not include characters that have a major role in one game but just a cameo in another). Ike is one good example where you have to go two different places to find information on him. While there is not enough info for Ike to have his own article, the best place I see to condense his information from Path of Radiance, Radiant Dawn and Super Smash Bros. Brawl would be in a recurring character list. I created a preliminary sandbox article of characters listed in more than one article. A number of these can still be weeded out as just cameos in one or another game. Please discuss the merits of creating such a list and what characters should be included. Aether7 (talk) 18:17, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, a lot of them needs work, as the writing is sorely in-universe. Remember, it is possible to have some information in both. If you split, said character would have its own article, while still briefly mentioning the same character in the list summary style. But yeah, if you're going to split, don't have most of the same information on both pages; you can always briefly summarize in the list. MuZemike 18:54, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
The Path of Radiance article is in the best shape, most everything already in a summary style (like the section on Greil Mercenaries). Your suggestion is good as I'd like to impact that article as little as possible. As far as giving characters their own articles, that has been unsuccessful before which is why I'm suggesting a recurring character list. Aether7 (talk) 19:24, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
Just because they have been in more then one game doesn't mean anything. Some games share settings, while others don't. That doesn't mean the characters are more notable because they appear multiple times. I think just improve the lists instead of deleting them. Maybe make a "List of Fire Emblem series characters" with notable characters that either play a really big role or have received reception. Blake (Talk·Edits) 22:41, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
I was not saying anything about these recurring characters being more notable, just trying to put them in one place. Pretty much all the characters have issues with notability, as its hard to find information on them. I had started working on this in my sandbox, but there doesn't seem much interest in it, and I got to thinking... if characters that have recurring roles are separated from the current lists, it will damage the lists already fragile notibility. Someone might come along at any point and request these articles to be deleted and unfortunately there is not much going in the way of keeping them (already happening with Thracia 776). This risk of deletion is my hesitation in trying to improve them. What to do? Maybe as you say, a single series list with notable characters would be best, and then all the other list will need to be merged/deleted. A short summary of a few additional characters can be put in the main game articles. A single "List of Fire Emblem series characters" would be better maintained/improved upon with more chance of promotion. Maybe that would really be best. Thoughts? Aether7 (talk) 17:07, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
Fire Emblem characters recur? I've only played 9 and 10 myself, but the impression I had was that 9 and 10 shared the same characters while the other games all had completely different characters. When I looked at this talk page, I was thinking it would be best to just make a "List of characters in Fire Emblem 9 and 10" article (subsitute numbers for subtitles if necessary), because 10 is a direct continuation of 9. ~ Keiji (iNVERTED) (Talk) 15:20, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
Perhaps something like List of Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow and Dawn of Sorrow characters? If anyone feels up to the task, have at it. :) Axem Titanium (talk) 08:54, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Character archtype[edit]

Kain#Fictional characters listed this as the name of an archtype in this game, but there's no mention of it here, does anyone know if there is a page with information about it I could direct this reference to? Tyciol (talk) 04:03, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

List of characters in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon#Cain "Cain, along with Abel, started a trend of Fire Emblem characters consisting two Social Knights/Cavaliers that are often seen together as friends, one of them will specialize more on Strength and HP, and the other specializes on Skill and Speed, and their color scheme are usually red and green (in Cain's case, he wears red)."
There is nothing official about the Cain and Abel archtype described above; most archtypes are fan based. Cain (or Kain) by himself is hardly notable enough to be listed in your disambiguation page. Aether7 (talk) 17:41, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Fire Emblem Wikia[edit]

I suggest that links to the Fire Emblem Wikia wikisite be added at External Links section of this article and other Fire Emblem related articles. Fire Emblem Wikia was founded in 2005 and has over 2,300 articles. Links to the Fire Emblem Wikia articles of the respective Fire Emblem games and characters could be put in the Fire Emblem related Wikipedia articles. It is used to include content beyond what is considered appropriate at Wikipedia. I am an active editor on that wikisite. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 23:09, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Fire Emblem 64[edit]

The article says this was planned for release on the Nintendo 64, but the cited source seems to be saying that it was intended for the Nintendo 64DD, and the article for the 64DD lists it as a cancelled title for that console. Anybody know which it was?--NukeofEarl (talk) 16:40, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Yea, the source says Nintendo 64DD. The 64DD was an add-on to the Nintendo 64 but was a commercial failure, hence the game being cancelled. Fixed. Aether7 (talk)

I was wondering if we could change the picture.[edit]

The picture is from Fire Emblem (2003) GBA. It is a little outdated and only features the characters of that game. Maybe we could change it tio the actual Fire Emblem Logo it self. The link is below:

Threat of Cancellation[edit]

Shouldn't there be something about the reported threat of cancellation prior to the release, critical acclaim, and tremendous success of Fire Emblem Awakening? Here's a source.

Wording[edit]

What exactly does "The Fire Emblem series is known for its innovation and for being one of the first Eastern style tactical role-playing games, with a strong emphasis on Western forms of medieval fantasy" mean?--Prisencolinensinainciusol (talk) 02:09, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
