Top 10 Cutest Guys in Fire Emblem
Fire Emblem is a long running Japanese RPG series, developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo. Mechanically, they function as war tactic strategy games, where your units have to defeat enemies, in a variety of different environments. The series follows the stories of legendary heroes, and their allies you meet during their quests.
A large reason why people are still attracted to this franchise after all this time, is the characters. In the case of most JRPG nerds it's mostly all about the waifus you can "collect" during the game. However, we here at Rainbo want to give our love to the husbandos who join you on your perilous quests, giving you some eye candy to gaze at over the battlefield. So, without further ado, here are our picks for the top ten cutest guys in Fire Emblem:
10) Henry (Fire Emblem: Awakening) -
Henry is a devious mage with a dark sense of humor. He joins your party in Awakening, purely as an excuse to test out his powers on your enemies. Most of your allies probably don't appreciate the cruel jokes he plays on them, but you can't be without him on the battlefield, with his powerful spells and adorable face. His ghostly, gothic appearance may not be everyone's cup-of-tea, but if you like an edgy guy who loves stirring up trouble, then Henry is the boy for you!
9) Subaki (Fire Emblem: Fates) -
Subaki is a loyal bodyguard in service of the player's family during the Conquest route of Fates, and he comes from a long line of respected warriors. He glides through the skies of the battlefield on his pegasus, slashing down your enemies from above, like a glistening angel. The idea of this well-rounded gentleman turning into your personal chamber boy is one I'd recommend thinking about on a slow, boring day; makes for some spicy daydreaming!
8) Lon'qu (Fire Emblem: Awakening) -
Lon'qu is a stoic samurai warrior, would joins your party in Awakening after you "win him" in a tournament. He's a strong, silent type who will follow orders to the letter, slashing down your foes in swift, graceful flourishes. It's cute to see him get flustered when you give him praise for his good work. You'll always feel safe with this strong, handsome swordsman pledged to serve you.
7) Kliff (Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia) -
A quiet, reserved boy who is shrouded in mystery. Coming from a village full of energetic youth, he instead chooses to spend his time studying the knowledge of the world and burying his nose in books. Kliff and his family origins are the making of gossip in his town, and his knowledge of magic is astounding! An intelligent and powerful young mage with a timid and sensitive personality. He is worth protecting at all costs!
6) Roderick (Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem) -
Roderick is a model knight, through and through. All your allies and enemies respect his efficiency on the battlefield. A chivalrous gent who only wants to impress his king. Everything he does is to achieve the praise and admiration of the player throughout the game. With lance in hand, he is ready to protect you with his life. Your orders will never fall on deaf ears while Roderick is around to satisfy your kingly desires.
5) Lukas (Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia) -
Lukas is your standard soldier, with a polite nature and dry sense of humor, he's innocent enough. Deep down he's a sweet guy who worries that his professionalism makes him come off as a cold figure. When he confesses this to his allies, it is guaranteed to make your heart melt. A misunderstood soldier who just needs some hugs and kisses, make sure you show him extra affection if you ever pick up this classic.
4) Robin (Fire Emblem: Awakening) -
Robin is the player character of Awakening, meaning he can more or less be whatever you want him to be! Although throughout the campaign, he is constantly a brilliant tactician, with a mind built for magic and warfare. Every plan goes successfully when Robin is there to iron out the details. We all like an intelligent guy with a heart of gold, and using his powers to back up his allies on the battlefield and keep them all safe, especially his man-crush Prince Chrom.
3) Corrin (Fire Emblem: Fates) -
Another player character joins the fray! Corrin is the pampered prince, with claims to royalty in two separate kingdoms, both of which are willing to go to war over who gets to keep him! Corrin lives a life of luxury, until he has to decide where he belongs. You can make this cutie into a hero of the people, or an evil tyrant who always gets what he wants. The choice is yours!
2) Gaius (Fire Emblem: Awakening) -
Gaius is a your typical thief, always looking out for his own personal interest. Luckily, his interests happen to align with yours during Awakening, leading him to join your party during one of his castle heists. He's calm and collected, and will do anything if catches his interest. Speaking of interests, he has an obsession with candy, so you can expect him to be packing lollipops, gummies and chocolates at all times. Nothing screams perfect partner like snacks on demand! We love Gaius best in his summer outfit, as it shows off that toned, pale body that has fangirls screaming and producing hot and raunchy Gaius x Reader fanfiction on a daily basis.
1) Inigo (Fire Emblem: Awakening/Fire Emblem: Fates) -
Inigo is the only second-generation character on this list, being the child of Olivia in Awakening, but being loved so much that he gets to reappear in Fates. As well as being a master swordsman, his mother also taught him the power of dance. Seeing a cute twink weave so gracefully across the battlefield is sure to raise your morale during a tough siege. His dancer outfit from Heroes (seen above) is the true shining glory for Inigo, as it shows off his beautiful form and dashing figure. A fan favourite that deserves all the hype he gets, make sure you get him in your party (and your bed) ASAP!
