Debut: Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryu to Hikari no Tsurugi
Aliases: Prince Marth, King Marth
Affiliations: Kingdom of Altea
Availability: Starting fighter
Background: Marth is the Prince and later King of Altea. Originally he is forced to flee his home, but then assumes the role of hero and leads the rebellion to retake his homeland and rescue his sister. He is the first protagonist of the series.
Reasoning: Making his Western debut in SSBM, Marth has become a well-liked character. Known for his agility and prowess with a sword.
Thoughts: Marth was my main in Melee until he got nerfed in Brawl. Since they are increasing the speed of gameplay in SSB4 I think he will likely become a viable character again. I’m just afraid he may be replaced by Chrom, which would suck. My vote is for Marth and Sothe, not Ike and Chrom…
