Chrom, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Chrom is the prince (and eventual ruler) of Ylisse, father of Lucina and descendant of Marth who makes his debut in Fire Emblem Awakening. During the events of the game, he meets and befriends Robin who joins him and his military band, the Shepherds, in defeating the Fell Dragon Grima. He wields Falchion, the same sword wielded by Marth. In English, Chrom is voiced by Matthew Mercer,[1] who has voiced him in the dubbed Fire Emblem games, while Tomokazu Sugita, Chrom's Japanese voice actor in the Fire Emblem series, provides his voice in the Japanese version.[2]

History[edit]

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]

Chrom appears as a non-playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U as part of Robin's Final Smash, Pair Up. When the move is used, Chrom appears and dashes forward, sending any opponents in his way into the air. Chrom and Robin then both follow up with a series of attacks culminating with a downward blow that launches opponents. Chrom also appears as a collectible trophy and an online profile icon, and occasionally appears alongside Robin in their victory pose.

Originally, Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai considered adding Chrom as a playable character, but felt he didn't possess any unique characteristics and would be too similar to other sword-wielding fighters such as Marth and Ike.[3] This is referenced in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U in the Palutena's Guidance conversation for Robin, in which Chrom makes a guest appearance. Chrom also appears in Robin and Lucina's introduction trailer, where he is seen lying on the ground, having been defeated by Captain Falcon.

Special moves
Final Smash:  Awakening Aether

In the Nintendo Direct broadcast on August 8, 2018, Chrom was announced as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, being an Echo Fighter of Roy. While Chrom shares many similar moves with him, he also possesses a move that is similar to Ike's Aether, though instead of throwing his sword, he slashes upward, sending opponents into the air. Chrom's moves also lack Roy's fire effects, including his Flare Blade equivalent. For his Final Smash, Awakening Aether,[4] Chrom performs a single slash, stunning any opponents in front of him, and performs his Aether skill from Fire Emblem Awakening, lunging forward and launching them away.[5]

WarioWare Gold[edit]

Outside of the Super Smash Bros. series, Chrom makes a cameo appearance in WarioWare Gold in 5-Volt's microgame Fire Emblem Awakening, where the objective is to direct Chrom to the enemy and defeat them.
