FE2 “Choose Your Legends” Poll Results Analysis

Nintendo conducted a poll for Fire Emblem Heroes urging fans to pick a favorite character of theirs that they would love to see featured. Each fan could vote once a day for 13 days for almost any character from any of the main Fire Emblem series of games.

This is part of a miniseries I am doing on analyzing the vast amount of poll data available to us and what it means for the fandom and their favorites regarding characters.

Thanks to the tireless work of Elieson over on serenesforest.net, we can take a look at the break downs by game!

Today we will focus on FE2, or Fire Emblem: Gaiden. What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than looking into the game set in Valentia?

There are some general things to keep in mind before we get started, however.

FE1/11 and FE3/12 (Archanea Games) “Choose your Legends” Poll Results Analysis

Nintendo conducted a poll for Fire Emblem Heroes urging fans to pick a favorite character of theirs that they would love to see featured. Each fan could vote once a day for 13 days for almost any character from any of the main Fire Emblem series of games.

This is part of a miniseries I am doing on analyzing the vast amount of poll data available to us and what it means for the fandom and their favorites regarding characters.

Thanks to the tireless work of Elieson over on serenesforest.net, we can take a look at the break downs by game! Today we will focus on FE1/11 (which were combined on the official poll), and FE3/12 (which too were combined). The games will be referred to as Shadow Dragon and Mystery of the Emblem for simplicity. Combined, they form the Archanea Saga of games.

There are some general things to keep in mind before we get started, however.

FE “Choose Your Legends” Full List of Results + Brief Analysis

feheroescharacters

Nintendo conducted a poll for Fire Emblem Heroes urging fans to pick a favorite character of theirs that they would love to see featured. Each fan could vote once a day for 13 days for almost any character from any of the main Fire Emblem series of games.

The competition had since ended, and results posted. Nintendo reported an overall outcome of 1.2 million votes. As you can imagine the selection was quite vast!

I previously analyzed the results regarding the top 20 of both genders. But thanks to the tireless work of Elieson over on serenesforest.net, I now have data that is broken down by game to see how characters stacked up against others from their own game.

So throughout the week I will be looking at the games in series order. For today, I present to you a massive table with general statistics, some data on how each game scored, followed by split gender votes.

Tomorrow we will enter the Archanea and look at the data for the games specifically.

There are some things to keep in mind before we get started, however.

  • This was a worldwide contest from all territories on all the games. All votes were included to one ballot. This is useful to know when it comes to character popularity.
  • The data was compiled from the full list of results here A lot of effort was put into compiling the data into a spreadsheet format, so a big thanks to Elieson!
  • Some characters were split if they appeared in multiple games (i.e. Marth in FE11 and 12 are two different votes. This is a point worth noting, as we will see.
  • Male characters and female characters were polled from the same limited set of 13. This means if someone voted for a favorite male character one day, they did not get to vote a female character the same day. This is worth noting because male/female characters are not in competition with each other. So, their voter base could only vote for a character in one gender or the other, meaning there may have been more votes for female characters overall than male, even if the voter had a male they would have preferred too. There is potential to skew the results here, as would have been solved with two polls (one for each gender).
  • Each individual was able to vote multiple times. One person could vote 13 times over the event period (and this assumes from one device)! As such, do not treat the total amount of votes as total amount of people who voted. Those are two very different things!
  • Nintendo had released midterm results on current poll standings. I consider this an important aspect in determining the final outcome to overall popularity, as I will address if relevant to the game.

Warning: The list is massive. I suggest using Ctrl + F to search for the character of your choosing to see where they ended up!

Fire Emblem 6/7: Artbook Translations (All)

cover-japfire_emblem_gba_box_artUPDATE: Now you can download them all as one RAR file here.

As you can imagine, the process of doing all this (scanning, editing, translating, etc) takes a lot of free time, and I currently lack a source of income, so…

Please consider donating! It helps fund future projects!

UPDATE: I am considering acquiring another copy of this book to unbind and scan in high quality as well as iron out the translations. If interested in funding this project, please donate above and add a note!

This is every single profile from Fire Emblem 6 (Sword of Seals) and Fire Emblem 7 (Blazing Sword) translated on this website and put in one place!

I used the names that were on the pages, even if they had official localized names in FE7 for FE6, with a few exceptions. However, from FE7 onward I used the officially localized names.

56 K Warning for a lot of images ahead! All of the scans for FE6 are from serenesforest.net. Some of the FE7 ones are too, but I scanned the ones they were missing. All were edited/translated by me. Their original Japanese transcripts are found on their original pages.

These are in order. Enjoy this milestone!

fire_emblem_gba_box_art

Yet another milestone! This is every single profile from Fire Emblem 7 (Blazing Sword) translated on this website. I did some out of order before, so their format is slightly different. But this is every single character in the FE7 Character Book. It is only actually the second half of book, the previous half was done on this site earlier.

I used the localized names best I could.

56 K Warning for a lot of images ahead! Some of these scans were provided by serenesforest.net, but I scanned most of them myself.  Their original transcripts are found on their original pages.

These are in order. Enjoy this milestone!
