* CantCatchUp: Due to the time investment necessary to level up their parents enough to give them a worthwhile inheritance in stats and traits, they tend to be either this or DeliberatelyOverpowered in most playthroughs. Either you content yourself with your 1st Generation characters and pick them up with underwhelming stats and traits mostly for completionism's sake, or you exhaustively level both parents over the course of multiple classes to get exactly the right combination of stats and position just the right skill for them to inherit, and they become absolute powerhouses who may entirely replace their parents on the front lines, because if you're going to invest in them you may as well go all-out.

* {{Angst}}: We get a glimpse of how much their amnesia troubles them in their Supports with their non-Avatar parent and sibling, at least in the context of not being able to remember their other family members. Morgan bursts into sad, frustrated tears in their parental A Support over not being able to remember their mother/father, insistent that they must have loved them as much as the Avatar and feel they have let them down by not remembering them. Even when Female Morgan's sibling suggests she may have TraumaInducedAmnesia, she insists on recovering her memories regardless of what horrible thing may come back, desperately wanting to have the special sibling bond she had with them.



* BlessedWithSuck: Their amnesia. They may cite it as a blessing in that it allows them to remain happy and optimistic even in the wake of a possible dark future, but it comes at the cost of only remembering one of their parents, costing them much of their possible family bonding time with their other parent and possible siblings. Female Morgan's supports with her sibling (if she has one) make this worse, as they note she was cheerful and talkative anyway when they knew her ''without'' the amnesia, and eventually wonder aloud if the reason she doesn't remember anything is [[TraumaInducedAmnesia it only happened when she saw or did something so horrible that memory suppression was the only way to survive]].



* DaddysGirl: [[GenderInvertedTrope Gender-Inverted]] for both parent and child if Morgan is male, but pretty much the only thing that Morgan remembers is the Avatar, and is clearly more attached with the Avatar than the other members of their family. [[spoiler:In The Future Past DLC, they even serve Grima to protect Robin's body.]]

* ADayInTheLimelight: The third and fourth ''Awakening'' CD dramas focus on the second generation. The third in particular is a dramatic narrative that details the major events that led up to them arriving to the past, while the fourth is a comedic story about looking for Lucina's diadem, which gets stolen by the resident {{Gonk}} twins Victor and Vincent.
* AlternateSelf: The children all have non-playable alternate versions in the Outrealm of "The Future Past" Xenologues, who face a BadFuture that is similar, yet even worse than the one the playable children came from. They also frequently acknowledge that they are alternate selves to their present timeline versions. Lucina is the most obvious example since she's the only one whose present self has already been born.

* CreatureBreedingMechanic: If you think of the units as the 'creatures' of Fire Emblem. The child unit produced is determined by the mother (with the exception of Lucina and Female Morgan, who are determined by their respective fathers Chrom and Male Robin), while their hair color comes from the father. Each one has the potential to inherit both of their parents' strengths, skills and classes, making them that much more customizable compared to first generation characters, especially if one marries classes that cover each others' weaknesses (i.e. A General with a Falcon Knight to cover the former's subpar Speed and Resistance).

* ItRunsInTheFamily: Both in gameplay and story. Gameplay-wise, they inherit stats and class options from their parents, which can leave them [[CantCatchUp trailing behind]] if their parents are under-levelled or [[PurposelyOverpowered incredibly powerful]] if they are well-levelled. Story-wise they also have many SharedFamilyQuirks, such as Cynthia inheriting her mother's CuteClumsyGirl routine and Kjelle being TheLadette like hers. They also take their hair colour from their father.

* {{Expy}}: Cares for his mother, but expresses extreme anger when she embarrasses him, which is often. Looks and acts like a tough guy, but has [[RealMenWearPink a lot of nonmanly hobbies]]. Much younger than he looks. He's basically [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Kanji Tatsumi]] as a healer.



* {{Expy}}: She seems to have borrowed a few traits from ''{{LightNovel/Slayers}}''' Princess Amelia, especially in the heroic speeches and (failed) entrances department.

* DemotedToExtra: Unlike the ''VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral'' games, where the children of the parent characters became the main characters after the first chapters, most of the second generation characters (with the exception of Lucina, who is the only second generation character who is not optional) are somewhat inconsequential to the story this time around (though not entirely, unlike the follow up, ''Fates'').

* FollowInMyFootsteps: The child characters seem to all go for the same starting class as their default parent. The exceptions being if there is a gameplay related reason (Males can't be Troubadours, so Brady is a Cleric, there can only be one dancer per game, so Inigo is a Mercenary), or if this trope was defied in-universe (Kjelle and Noire's mothers discouraged them from taking up the same class, while Severa defies this trope on her own.) Owain is the exception, as he has no particular reason for ''why'' he didn't become a priest, other than it wouldn't really fit his hot-blooded nature (his mother can't even ''become'' a Myrmidon). Morgan is ironically another exception, as they will only be a tactician if their parent is a special class, even though they want nothing more than to be like the Avatar.

* VagueAge: They're from an ambiguous fifteen-or-so years in the future and look like they could range anywhere from older teenagers to young adults. The closest thing to certain ages are Lucina being the oldest and either Morgan or Nah (though it may be due to her Manakete blood slowing her aging) probably being the youngest. Further muddying the waters is that they arrived in the past at random points over a period of five years or so and waited to join the Shepherds, meaning their current ages don't necessarily reflect their birth order at all.
* WalkingSpoiler: Their existence in general is a big spoiler. They were not at all advertised before release, but due to both ''Awakening'' taking such a long time to localize and them being a major element of gameplay in the second half of the game, they firmly fell into ItWasHisSled territory. On that note, it's fairly hard to talk about them without mentioning that whole [[spoiler:bad future]] thing.
