4. Marth the Atlean Prince
To be perfectly honest, Marth’s not really that great in game terms. Sure, he’s got solid stats, and like Lucina, he gets a nice buff against dragons. The problem is that he’s not quite as good as Lucina (or Lucina’s weird future dad, Chrom) in either category. He’s a little bit more durable, but Lucina’s healing and ability to slaughter anything that glances at her askance means she’s actually more survivable, too.
But he is still a great pull if you don’t have one of the other top tier superstars, and he’s the Fire Emblem poster boy, everybody’s rosy-cheeked, nostalgia-glazed-sugar-donut-baby-boy from way back in Fire Emblem’s prehistory. Also, he earns a huge raft of bonus points for having possibly the world’s sickest cape.
