Character Description

Marth is the prince of Altea, and an indirect descendant of Anri, the warrior who slew the dark dragon Madeus. Being in the first Fire Emblem game, he is the first Lord in the Fire Emblem series. Typical of most Fire Emblem Lords in successive games, Marth is a swordsman with slim build and wears a cape; he shows nobility and justness. His father, Cornelius, was the king of Altea, his elder sister, Elice, is a princess and his love interest is Shiida, the princess of Talys. He uses his Sword of Light, Falchion, as his main weapon. Marth's personality has changed over time. In the original game, he was somewhat naive to the point he seemed innocent. In later games, he appears more noble to resemble a typical Lord.


Marth is the fastest walker in the game, meaning he has the fastest walking speed. He is also fast on his attacks, as well as flexible. He is a mediumweight and uses his sword, the Falchion, in all of his attacks. Marth's attacks are powerful if hit with the tip of the blade. If not, then they're weak. Marth has amazing aerial techniques as well as recovery. His ground attacks allow him to use multiple combos, such as his Side Special Move, Dancing Blade. Marth is also very good at defensive play. His Up Special Move, Dolphin Slash, can prevent him from being hit, as it is very quick. However, Marth can easily be KO'ed due to his height and weight, being the lightest middleweight.
