Why do Americans like Ike so much? Posted on May 22, 2023 by Anonymous Why do Americans like Ike so much?
see pic related
left side should be something about social justice at this point
that's back then, now it's more like he needs to be brown and trans
2 words bro. GREAAATTTTTT AETHERRRRRRRRRRR
God bless brawl
Brawl chads will rise once again.
He's the only FE lord in the NA-released games who isn't a gay or a retard.
>isn’t a gay
Don't listen to the nu emblem fags. Soren is just a true bro
He has a son.
This, he is a self made man. Not some king or prince who was born into power.
>Not some king or prince who was born into power.
Marth still had a cobble an army out of outcasts and the left overs and still had to prove himself like Anri. Alm is protoike with royal bloodline. Do you want me to talk about Leif "literally stole from the enemy to survive" Thracia? Seliph is similar but to a lesser degree.
westerners like manly men, its why for example they tend to hate zelda games that aren't oot
buff, Gruff, and most importantly he was in Smash.
The fact his game actually came out in the west is a huge plus. Because i'm sure most kids expected that Blazing Blade sequel with Roy that never came.
As far as I know his games sold like shit so to hear him being the most popular FE character in NA is baffling. I can't see his popularity coming from people who played his games when they were new.
Luci's voice warms my heart when nothing else will.
Also I'm trans btw
He's based and fucks his half dragon bf on the regular
>main gimmick is that he's just really strong.
>everyman origin instead of "muh chosen one"
>had one of sickest entrances in brawl (most Americans' first impression of him)
>basically shows no interest in women, appeals to the male power fantasy of rejecting beautiful women throwing themselves onto you. fujos can enjoy interpreting this as him being gay.
>games are good
More of an Ephraim man myself.
fuck off eirika
>stupid twincest trope
>implying I'm not Lyon
youre not fooling anyone, at least pretend to be seth next time
He's the most American Fire Emblem character
>isn't some gay prince or chosen one bullshit
>has to work to the bone for everything he has, dad dies leaving him a mercenary group that is utterly floundering and only his sheer grit and determination get it back online
>straightforward and practical, he gets to the point pretty much immediately and doesn't have the patience for long winded nonsense
>leads a ragtag group of people from all nations and even other races, their differences made irrelevant by their shared purpose
>offered land and a title from Elincia, tells her to eat shit and doesn't want it
Where's the part where he worships merchants and africans while cutting off his genitals?
لا توجد أفريقيا في شعار النار
>Humble origins [Dad was just a really good swordsman and Mom was a simple priest]
>Down to Earth personality
>Is not treated as the messiah by birth, when his dad dies people who weren't his friends actively abandon him because they don't want to work for him
>Cuts through everyone's BS, scolding multiple high ranking political figures or murdering them for being shits
>Also understands at some points he has to temper himself for the greater good and play the politics game
>But also bails eventually when he realizes how fucking counter productive it is for him to try and play Noble
>Tells a god to pray to whatever it is gods pray to before killing it
>Appreciates boypussy in the Greek way (no homo and would never allow himself to be penetrated)
This is the greatest line in all FE.
>Make your peace with whatever the gods worship
What did he mean by this? Shouldn't it be "with whatever Gods you worship"
doesnt that imply he's about to kill a god? havent played any FE games
Yeah, she's a god. Ike is cold as fuck
The opponent on screen is a goddess. Ike canonically gets the killing blow
The final boss Asherah is in fact a goddess , hence that line.
I like this one.
What an absolute omegachad
Pretty cool guy.
They really only like him because of Smash Bros. Nobody fucking played his games.
wtf I love Japan now!?!
Well, broken clocks and all that.
>Lucifag desperately trying and failing to derail an Ike thread
>"Why do Americans like Ike so much?"
Probably Brawl unironically.
>Americans liking Ike more than Hector
Was this from a poll or from an alternate universe
If I'm remembering correctly, Ike is the most popular FE character
He's so massively popular that he's the only male character to ever win an overall character poll. Ike is stronger than the waifufags.
What a total Chad
I hate this pic because it was literally made by some anon from here and it's not true at all
I think the only thing that would be in contention is lumping all of Europe together under Hector. I'm sure Italians and Germans have wildly different preferences.
The crowd had a catchy cheer for him in Brawl.
An all-around American classic, really.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT, CHAPTER 25 IN PoR IS FUCKING MY ASS RAW, MANIAC FUCKING SUCKS AAAAAAAAAAAAA, HOW MANY CHAPTERS ARE THERE LEFT?
HUGE PENIS SWORD
I love the power, landing a charged smash attack feels amazing
referring to Super Smash Bros Brawl, obviously
the slogan was just so fucking catchy
Brawl, and the benefit of being the first sword user in smash that doesn't play like a massive fucking gay.
He's a real big boss and he fights for his friends
>Japan likes the bland waifu
Can't say I'm shocked
Why is she so flat? Looks like a boy with long hair
He's like, the only FE protagonist that isn't a noble or a prince or someone super duper important from the get-go making him more relatable, so when he kills The Burger King it feels truly earned
are americans even human?
Not anymore, their cosmopolitanism ideals, systems along with racemixing plus government/private company social experiments on the common populace have turned them into something akin to cattle
isn't it kinda fucked how this dude from 2005 is STILL the only FE protag who doesn't have some kind of chosen one/divine lineage/dragon blood bullshit
I don't recall Marth/Eliwood/Roy/Ephraim/Eirika having those. It's been a while so maybe I'm wrong but I don't recall them fitting your description. Marth is a descendant of Anri who is a hero, but he isn't "divine", nor do I recall him having dragon blood. The same kind of goes for Eliwood/Roy/Ephraim/Eirika. They might be related to heroes, but they weren't dragons, or gods.
Back in the brawl days I would main Marth and my brother would main Ike
We didnt even know what game they were from but we assumed they were also brothers because they looked vaguely similar
Lots of good memories having epic duels with him as those characters, still haven't ever played a FE game though
