They're very strong with one heck of a weapon. Swordplay comes very natural to them, and they sure do pack a punch...
Who's that Smasher?
My First Reaction
Ike's reveal left me both confused and upset when I read it on the DOJO. Confused because I've never heard of the guy before. I've never played a Fire Emblem game, and all I heard of it was from Melee's representatives.
As for upset, it was because of one thing:
|Ike replaced Roy!|
The guy could take everything I could throw at him and still KO me! I damage him yes, but he just doesn't flinch or overpowers through my attacks.
|He just...won't stay down!|
Through His Series
Compared to Marth and Roy, Ike is the only main character who was not born into royalty in the beginning of the game. His starting class is actually a Ranger in Path of Radiance for GameCube.
|But I think he becomes a Lord later on,|
if I'm not mistaken...
But Ike's not alone on his journey. He's has his friends within the Mercenary group, and he's under the service of Princess Elincia.
|The only people here I've heard of are |
Ike, Mist, Soren, and Rolf.
In Super Smash Brothers
|This sums him up.|
Other then that, he's very much like Roy. A Standard Special that makes a fiery explosion, a counter attack, and a more close ranged play when compared to Marth. But he does have a lunging Side Special and his signature Aether, so that's different.
|I think he's the only Fire Emblem character to|
have a signature move like this.
According to his trophy, Ike gives the impression that he's uncaring with his blunt manner, but he's actually a passionate hero. He's kind to others and protective of his friends and family, especially his sister Mist. He's also not prejudiced against certain types of people, such as the animalistic Laguz.
|Like defending his cat-like friend Ranulf when|
he needed him most.
|And Marth knew that.|
Moving on, Ike's also found companions in Pit, Link, and Samus Aran. He might have an attraction to the huntress as well, but no one's 100% sure on that. He'll also encourage some of the younger Smashers if they're feeling a little down.
Smash Bros 4 Changes?
My only concern for Ike is that I hope his power gets taken down a notch.
|You wanna say that again punk?|
Ike may not have been one of my biggest stars on my personal favorites list, but I like his inclusion in Smash nonetheless. Something different and new is never a bad thing...in most cases anyway.
But should the Hero of Blue Flames burn out from the tournament? Or does Ike still have a fighting chance against the others?
If he doesn't get accepted back, I'll be sad, but it won't be for long.
Now the question: Would YOU like to keep Ike in Super Smash Brothers 4? Comment below and share your opinion.

If I stay true to them, I cannot lose.
