Best Fire Emblem: Awakening Characters

Fire Emblem: Awakening has a pretty large cast of characters. But which are the best?

This is about personality, not how good the characters are in battle. It might be who you think is funniest, cutest, whatever. This isn't about skills and stats though.

Playable characters and NPCs are fine
The Top Ten
1 Lucina Lucina is one of the main characters in Fire Emblem Awakening, as well as a fighter in Super Smash Bros. Her most notable feature is her love for her father.

As soon as I got her, I basically sent my character trampling over her in every battle to build support and marry her lmao. That being said, she's a very, very well done character. I don't even think there's a negative thing I can say. Her relationship with Robin, if you choose to go down that path, is in my opinion the best in the game and her cutscenes in chapter 21 with a married Robin is heartbreaking. I wouldn't mind her popping up as a fully playable protagonist in another FE game somewhere down the line.

2 Severa
3 Henry

Henry should be #1. He was the one who convinced me to get this game, believe it or not. As I went to the Fire Emblem Wiki to read up on the characters, I saw Henry's page, read his quote, and fell in love. He also became my Awakening husband. He's so cute, I don't know why he's only number 8. Gregor, say goodbye to your number 1 spot. Henry should be there. He has a backstory, unlike most of these characters, and he's just insanely cute! So please, people, vote for Henry!

"Have some death! "
"I'm gonna kill you! "
"Hahaa! "
"Special delivery! "
But most importantly,
"Well, usually I disarm foes by removing their arms. But your way sounds impressive, too! "

4 Lon'qu

He's swift as wind; strong as steel; phased by absolutely nothing, well expect women, but overall he's an overpowering character who uses strength and speed to his advantage.

Lon'qu should be number five. He is so darn fast like a cheetah.

Paired him up with Tharja, made me laugh... A lot...

5 Gregor

I like love Gregor's quote if the avatar chooses to sacrifice his life, Oy! You no go! Not until Gregory drink you under table!

I love the mighty Gregor's personality! He can be funny but knows how to be serious!

6 Owain

Can you control your sword hand long enough to vote for Owain?

Who doesn't love him? He's a goofball.

7 Cherche

The friend of Olivia who also happens to share the same pink hair and the mother of Gerome.

Love her! I got her married to my unit and it's so perfect. Favourite female in nintendo

Kind, but not soft. especially shown in her supports. I also love her artwork so much

8 Cordelia
9 Nowi

People all complain about how she looks like a kid and stuff. Personally, I think she is very cute! Besides, she has a really cool/cute critical quote:

"GR... RAGE! "

My god Nowi is so adorable and like able! I married her in my first run through the game

10 Tharja

I think she is the most interesting, hilarious, attractive character in Fire Emblem Awakening. I don't know why, but in Awakening the dark mages were my jams.

Pretty underrated I think. This is Nintendo's yandere character.

The Contenders
11 Sumia

Very useful in battle due to her high speed. She is cute and has a lovable personality. I just wish people stopped talking about the Chrom shipping wars

Mother of Cynthia.
Although she still use flower fortunes, she now uses them wisely. Father of Cynthia is Frederick.

12 Olivia

Mother of Inigo. And a extreme shy girl.
Father of Inigo is Henry. Olivia is a dancer who likes to dance but not in people's eyes.

13 Inigo

A really cute flirt, he tries to make others happy even during a war. He's too pure and must be protected at all costs.

14 Lissa

Mother of Owain. And she's also Maribelle's girlfriend and look alike friends.
Owain is a talkative parrot who likes to scream like a maniac. But Lissa did not bother anything. Father of Owain is Ricken.

She just want to be friend of everyone and even the relation with Robin displays a lot of childish mind that might grow to a lady in a future.

Must to be protected at all cost

15 Kellam

Why is there just a plain number six there?

Don't remember this character...oh well

16 The Vaike
17 Noire

When she get angry, she'll yell at you. But who to pair her with? My opinion might as well be Laurent.

18 Avatar

Robin is a really good character and actually has some depth to him/her and not some static character like many expected. Usually, I hate self-insert characters, but Robin is quite the exception. He/she has their own personality and isn't as much of a GaryStu/MarySue as some might say. Robin's affinity within the Shephards is actually well-deserved and is actually met back by him/her. Robin is the team's Jack Of All Trades and Master At None character, which keeps him useful within the group and talented without being "The Perfect One", that is Cordelia's role.

Still, looking at this list, Robin is quite underrated. Even though the Smash Bros. Fiasco back when Sm4sh was still new when virtually no one knew how to play Robin, and first impressions are often the most important, his/her reputation sort of fell a little because of the odd play style, but Robin has long since redeemed him/herself since those days and has been a fan favorite for both Smash Bros. And strongly respected among the Fire Emblem community, new and veteran alike.

19 Chrom

He's actually an awesome character; too bad all anyone thinks about him these days is how he's not playable in Smash and that dumb trailer announcing who got in instead.

Maybe now that he's actually playable in the newest Smash Bros, he'll finally get more respect.

20 Tiki

Tiki should be number 1. She is literally my most powerful character(rating of 323) and favorite in the game.She doesn't need any skills because first of all, she has good range, and she is also a deadly wyvern killer, extremely high strength, and most of all her defense and resistance are so darn ridiculous that even Grima can hardly damage her and he has worse defense and resistance. Tiki is the Arceus of Fire Emblem Awakening.

The partner of Nowi and the Divine Dragon sent by Naga.

Tiki is just a well made character in general. #2 please!

21 Cynthia

Cynthia is always a joy to see because of her try-hard attitude and her cluminess on supports and whatnot!

Daughter of Frederick and Sumia, loud and cheerful girl. She's the girlfriend of Male Morgan and Severa.

22 Stahl

Why is Stahl #35? He's so adorable and sweet! I love him as a character. I would have married him if I didn't accidentally marry Chrom..

23 Gerome

He has the most sad backstory and relatable personality in the game. Deserves to be number one.

24 Gaius

Gaius should be much higher. He is funny, cute, and a good character overall! He makes a really good assassin if you have a master seal and his lock picking ability is very useful. He is much better then Gregor, In my opinion. Yes, Gaius can be a little greedy, but he has a good heart. Just look at his support with Maribelle for proof. Gregor is much greedier, rather stupid, and the less said on the battle field the better. This is only my silly personal opinion though! So it's okay if you don't agree my only point is that I love Gaius!

25 Flavia

I don't know what it is about her, but I think Flavia's design is super cool. My personal favorite female character in the game. Only reason she was lower than Nowi on the original list is because she can't marry Basilio.
