You know what? Maybe we’ve had enough of Fire Emblems’ very similar, blue-haired boys. They have had their time in the spotlight, and they have all been invited to Smash. You know who does not get enough recognition? Everyone’s favorite nameless friend, Gatekeeper.
His infinitely sunny disposition was always a welcome respite from the gloomy battle of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and his recent victory in the 2021 Fire Emblem Heroes poll for “Choose Your Legends”
Gatekeeper already has many fans, including those who encouraged him to a playable character in Three Houses (and discovered that his Charm state was the highest in the game). With such statistics, how could you not love him?
Of course, this means that this is the fifth year in a row that Chrome – the main character of Fire Emblem: Awakening – has lost. He has lost to Ike, Hector, Alm and Dimitri before, and now he is lost to a guy who can not even fight. Sorry, Chrome, but you’re just not that gentle.
The poll winners, Gatekeeper, Marth, Marianne and Eirika, will be added to Fire Emblem Heroes wearing “Special Choose Your Legends Outfits”. Will we finally see the gatekeeper’s eyes? I guess we’ll find out.
