Robin is a character from the Fire Emblem series, who made their debut in Fire Emblem Awakening as the customizable player avatar, and one of the game's main protagonists alongside Chrom and Lucina. In their game of origin, Robin is an amnesiac who comes to serve as the tactician of Chrom's Shepherds, and rises to fame after helping their home country of Ylisse win a number of wars, but is also sought by the game's main antagonists for purposes involving the resurrection of the Fell Dragon Grima. Unlike most Nintendo protagonists, the original Robin is highly customizable, with a number of build, hairstyle, face and voice options for both genders. Robin appears as a newcomer in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, with both male and female variations, using their preset default appearances and voices from Awakening.

Unlike other Fire Emblem characters in Super Smash Bros., Robin not only uses a sword but also magic attacks. Most of Robin's moves also operate similarly to Fire Emblem's durability mechanic: if certain attacks are used enough times, they can no longer be used until a cooldown period passes. Robin's Smash Attacks and air attacks all use a Levin Sword (using its Fire Emblem Awakening appearance), which can only be used eight times before it is replaced by a weaker Bronze Sword; the Bronze Sword is also used for all of Robin's other non-special attacks. Robin is also one of the slower characters on the ground, having the slowest running speed of any character.

Robin's special moves all use various tomes. Their neutral special move is Thunder, which fires a bolt of lightning that can be charged. Their side special is Arcfire, which creates a pillar of fire in front of Robin. Their up special is Elwind, in which Robin sends out a gust of wind to boost up into the air while damaging enemies. Finally, their down special is Nosferatu, which damages enemies while healing Robin. Robin's Final Smash is Pair Up, which summons Chrom to their side to repeatedly attack opponents.

For equipment, Robin can use the Boots equipment for speed, Coat equipment for defense, and is the only fighter that can use the Tome equipment, which increases attack power.

Profiles and statistics[edit]


Name 3DS Image Wii U Image Appears in NTSC-U Description PAL Description
Robin RobinTrophy3DS.png RobinTrophyWiiU.png 3DS Fire Emblem Awakening (02/2013) This is the male Robin, your avatar in Fire Emblem Awakening. The goal of this adventure doesn't change much because of your gender choice, but Robin's marriage options do. In Smash Bros., Robin brings powerful magic and swordplay to bear. He can exhaust his moves, but they'll be restored over time. When Robin is found at the start of Fire Emblem Awakening, he (or she!) discovers that, even without his memories, he is a master tactician. In this game, his attacks are powerful, but in true Fire Emblem style, how many times his magic can be used is limited. This also applies to the thunder magic his sword is imbued with.
Robin (Alt.) RobinAllStarTrophy3DS.png Robin(alt)TrophyWiiU.png 3DS Fire Emblem Awakening (02/2013) Robin's magic is powerful, but it has limited uses before needing to recharge. Thunder can be charged in stages, will become Thoron at max charge, and gains damage and speed with its charge. Arcfire creates a flame pillar, perfect for dealing with an edge-clinging foe. Robin's magic is powerful, but in return, its uses are limited. You can charge Thunder in steps, and when it's fully charged, it turns into Thoron, increasing its speed and dealing more damage. Arcfire creates a flame pillar when it hits something. Use it on an opponent who's clinging to an edge to stop them getting back on the stage.

First, Chrom dashes forward, and if he lands a hit, Robin joins him for a flawless combination of attacks. It can even catch multiple opponents at once!

Palutena's Guidance[edit]

  • Pit: There's something weird about this fighter, Lady Palutena.
  • Palutena: That's Robin — also known as the Avatar.
  • Pit: I wonder where Chrom is.
  • Palutena: Who knows? Probably taking a nap at home.
  • Chrom: I'm no idle layabout.
  • Pit: Whoa! Where did you come from?!
  • Chrom: Robin is a skilled strategist and master of both the Levin Sword and magic. Certainly more useful than a simple swordsman like myself.
  • Viridi: Plus, you and Ike are too similar. No point in having two characters that are pretty much carbon copies. Am I right?
  • Chrom: Excuse me?!
  • Palutena: What's more, you don't have an Aether recovery move like Ike does, do you?
  • Chrom: Quiet, you!
  • Palutena: Heh heh. Back to the topic at hand. Robin can use the Levin Sword and magic only so many times. Use this limit to your advantage, Pit.
  • Pit: Got it! This fight is in the bag!
  • Chrom: I wouldn't be so sure. For Robin's Final Smash, I plan on lending a hand. And then you'll taste the bitterness of defeat!
  • Viridi: We know you're trying to play the hero and all, but you can only join in if Robin gets the Smash Ball, right?
  • Chrom: You'll taste the bitterness of defeat! ...Right after Robin gets the Smash Ball.


  • Robin is one of the main characters in Fire Emblem: Awakening. A traveler who remembers nothing prior to being found by the wayside, Robin is a skilled fighter and serves as the main tactician among the Shepherds.
