Best Fire Emblem: Fates Characters

Fire Emblem: Fates is without a doubt my favorite game of 2016 (so far, I guess). Its main campaign, that had to be split in two versions and the perfect gameplay were two main reasons!
However the characters of the game were absolutely fantastic as well! That's why I decided to create a list of the ten best characters in Fire Emblem: Fates!

The Top Ten

1 Takumi

Takumi was such a good and developed character. I love how he didn't love your Avatar like the other siblings did because it seems more realistic to be more skeptical about someone you don't know raised in the enemy country for so long. He is so human with his constant worry and his belittlement of himself (that makes me sad because I love him so, so much).

He had made Conquest all the more painful to play because he really wanted to bond with you, but just couldn't express and ended up the way he did in the end. Protect this cinnamon roll/

Use in the game, A+ because he crits so much (at least for me). Also his son is great too to be honest.

Best archer not only in Fates, but of the entire series. He makes the previous archers look pathetic. (Bar Shinon from RD, who can definitely hold his own, but is still slightly outshined by Takumi) Takumi's skill is ludicrously high and when he hits, it's going to hurt. He wields the legendary Fujin Yumi and kills things dead with it. Takumi is OP, has an excellent design,(kinda Inyusha esque) great availability, and one of the few Fates characters with depth. He makes for an excellent sniper. 10/10

He became my favorite character before I even played the game. I also have a crush on him and people saying he sucks will get my fist in their faces. He was also my best unit and I used him pretty much all the time. Because I love Takumi so much I don't like conquest that much...

Takumi is my favorite character without a doubt. I love his personality, and his design. I litarlly wouldn't play conquest because you have to fight Takumi. It would make me cry too much.. (please excuse my spelling errors)

2 Camilla

I liked that last part you said about Camilla, CastlevaniaFanboy128. It's official. Fire Emblem is a guilty pleasure and a great video game series. And Camilla has quite a unique personality and is pretty intimidating. Other than that, I love her.

Good character, but her fandom is rude, perverted, whiners, and immature horny boys. You thought Rosalina's or Tifa's fans are that way

Camilla is sweet, tough, and funny. She's a great combination of these characteristics, making her lovable.

3 Arthur

Beware his fists of Justice! Normally most Fighters are actually some standard characters... EXCEPT Arthur, because this guy, I mean Super Hero made my Conquest run even more entertaining than it actually was!

"When will this bad luck streak end? "

This Character Is A T.V. Show

4 Ryoma

As a Fire Emblem fan, I have always liked the characters that are strong leaders and have one of the sacred blades. He is very cool and instantly became my favorite FE character after chapter 25 in the Conquest route.

He's very dependable as a unit, and very cool as a character.

He is gamebreaker in Birthright. And he have such an amazing lobster armor.

Awesome character, and his weapon is so powerful!

5 Charlotte

She's an Interesting character and has lots of depth to her. She tried to be fragile and lady like but she couldn't be a Royal guard since she was too fragile so now she's a border gaurd.

Charlotte is a BEAST in all my playthroughs! With her psychotic personality and bizekies of doom, she ends up being my favorite character!

WHEN CHARLOTTE IS ON HER A GAME, YOU CAN'T DEFEAT HER!

6 Kaze

Kaze Is My Favourite Character in Fates. He is the Number One Waifu! I mean just LOOK at him. He is so handsome and fast. Faster than Sonic! And the Best thing: He is Based on a Ninja!
He Is a Unit who will follow you in every Route. He Is a very friendly guy and very charming too. He has Got an insane Speed and doubles the enemy Allmost every time. His Personal Skill Is really helpfull and This Skill has saved My Other Units a plenty Times.

He has Midori, the most moe daughter in all of recorded history! That is why Kaze must be protected at ALL COSTS!

A loyal and cool Ninja. What else?

Kaze is a monster in a fight

7 Xander

Best character. His supports with Camilla, Corrin, and Leo are endearing and his character is simultaneously tragic and amazing.

Best character with a good backstory only perry support is bad

Should be higher

Siegfried 2 OP. enough said

8 Felicia

Her personality is great, it suits her very well and spectacular mage killer

Cutest maid that deserves to marry a prince - or a king

Best girl of all the fates games step aside Azura smh

We've got trouble

9 Azura

I really like Azura. I feel that people don't give her credit where it's due. She's certainly not perfect, but I like her.

Best in my opinion
Her song (Lost In Thoughts) is the best!
And fellow players and fans,
You are the oceans grey waves-

Azura is the best! She is cute, useful in battle and both her light and dark dances are incredible!

Azura is the best

10 Leo

Leo is the best character in the game, from his charming features and his legit personality, so far, playing all the routes as far as revelation, ha also appears to be the basic (I mean if you don't use any master, heart seals and etc. On any of your characters) strongest of them all.

The comment that states that Leo is the one and only lover for Takumi is so incredibly correct. Leo X Takumi is without a doubt the best ship in the game.
Also, Leo is cool and all that. He looks like a blonde Marth, to be honest.

This is kind of wrong, but my character married him in Conquest. I like his character, but I don't really know why I did that

Well, they aren't actually related. So it's okay. But Takumi and Ryoma on the other hand...

He's similar to a traditional Fire Emblem lord. It's interesting, and it works extremely well.

The Contenders

11 Benny
12 Elise

Umm she's Elise her retainers are Arthur and Effie who are really good I mean you should always use Elise whenever possible because she is very useful for healing and support and she is very cute! Also very selfless she loves her ONII CHAN! As well as makes friends vey easily as seen in the revelations ending.

She is a top-tier character in the game and is just so good at being a defender against all kinds of crap during that conquest run I just can't deny her becoming one of my strongest units.

How can you dislike Elise? Also I hate this list because Takumi is no. 1 and I hate Takumi. Elise should be 1, Camilla 2 and Takumi in the dungeon.

13 Anna

I just like her

14 Peri

Finally, Peri isn't being crapped on, I like that.

Oh, yeah, why is she my favorite? Simple, great unit and great character.

Oh, and best girl.

She's amazing in battle and gets stronger as she kills

15 Silas

He's your best friend that you never knew you had!

Silas is so super sweet and adorable

16 Effie

"Not... Strong enough..."

17 Odin

Knows no fear

18 Niles

Honestly, who doesn't like the extremely seductive homosexual outlaw.

19 Corrin

Corrin is a very awesome character who had to make one of the hardest decisions in any of the games I've played. They deserve lots of respect for being so brave, compassionate, and kind.

This is your avatar, so if this is at number 20 does that mean that you like 19 more people than your self? Shouldn't Corrin at least be in top 10?

Corrin is bae

20 Soleil

I paired Laslow with Azura, and promoted Soleil to a great lord. I noticed she has great growth rates for speed, luck, and strength, and she does critical over half the time, so I gave her the Killer Sword. Basically, if I want an enemy unit dead, I just send in Soleil, and most likely she will kill them. Since she is a great lord, she doesn't have a level cap (as far as I know; she's level 32 without any eternal seals, and I'm at Conquest Endgame). Also, I agree, she's definitely the coolest character in the army. I gave her the accessory shop sunglasses and the white bow, and she's always super cheery when she goes into a fight, which is encouraging.

Honestly the cutest girl next to her main squeeze Ophelia. My Soleil is a Laslow/Selena one and a level 20 Great Lord, phenomenal Strength Speed and Luck with decent HP to boot, she's always in my party for any excursion, couldn't leave without her.

First time I ever got her after pairing Camilla and Laslow she was the strongest person on my team and even killed Garon!

Soleil is a gay sweetheart and I love her so very much

21 Selkie

Playful attitude something that just makes you forget some of the bad thing wait does this make me a furry?

I love Selkie, she is just so adorable. Out of all the Birthright's definitely my favorite.

22 Kaden

It's about time they added a kitsune/spirit fox in the series. (Sorry, huge fox fan here) Plus, he is awesome.

23 Laslow

Dang Laslow is just so sweet and his English voice is what first got my attention. He's so cute WHAT A BABE

He's just really awesome

24 Kiragi
25 Oboro

Best girl in the franchise
