*** However, since Libra’s name is absent from that list, it’s likely that Leopold ''is'' Libra, And had his name changed to be more androgynous sounding.

* RealitySubtext: It's possible to pair Miriel and Ricken. Their voice actors, TaraPlatt and Creator/YuriLowenthal, are married in Real Life. Doubles as HilariousInHindsight, as the two were a fairly popular pairing even before their English voice actors were announced.

* FakeAmerican: GideonEmery, who voices Gaius, is actually British — for comparison, his other two most famous roles are [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII Balthier]] and [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII Fenris]], and for those, he keeps his natural accent.

* FanNickname: [[FanNickname/FireEmblemAwakening So many it got its own page]].
* FranchiseKiller: It would've been this if the game sold fewer than a quarter million units. (More in a retroactive sense; the game was expected to be the final game in the series and was developed as such.) Thankfully, this was was averted with a ''vengeance'' as, thanks to global sales, it became the best selling title in the history of the franchise by an extremely wide margin.

** There were also a surprisingly large number of people who guessed, before the game was released, that [[spoiler: [[SamusIsAGirl "Marth" (or rather, Lucina) was actually a girl.]]]]
** Many also called [[spoiler: the Avatar being connected to Grima.]]
** With regards to localizations, just about ''everyone'' called "[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Thor Hammer]]" [[TranslationCorrection becoming]] "[[Myth/NorseMythology Mjölnir]]"

The Future Past DLC josses this: [[spoiler: if he marries Tharja and then he goes rescue the alternate universe Noire, Noire bluntly mentions his aversion to women, and Lon'qu's reply is basically "why would I be scared ''of my own daughter''?". Granted, conversations with other potential daughters suggest that while he is unafraid of being near his daughter, he ''was'' afraid that he ''might'']].

* NewbieBoom: ''Awakening'' got more marketing in the West than previous ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' titles, giving it much better mainstream exposure than its predecessors. It went on to become the best selling ''Fire Emblem'' of all time, which in turn drew in many new players to the fandom. Robin and Lucina's inclusion as playable characters in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros for 3DS and Wii U]]'' a few years later sparked another small surge of new fans due to the ''Smash'''s series popularity.
* NoDubForYou: While the various European localizations are very creative and heavily [[{{Woolseyism}} Woolseyized]], only English and Japanese voiceovers exist for the game, unlike ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Radiant Dawn]]''[='s=] multiple European voices. However, all Western versions of the game contain both voice tracks, unlike with previous ''Fire Emblem'' games, and unlike the follow up, ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' (which contained only the English audio).

** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] with [[spoiler:Lucina]] and Lon'qu, though. Even though their voice actors (Creator/LauraBailey and Creator/TravisWillingham, respectively) are married in real life, they can't be paired up themselves because [[spoiler: the only character who can marry across generations is [[PlayerCharacter the Avatar]].]]
** [[DoubleSubversion Double subverted]] in that Creator/TravisWillingham also voices Brady, who ''can'' marry [[spoiler: Lucina if he's not her brother.]]

* TalkingToHimself: Insofar as VoiceGrunting allows, given doubling up among both casts. Especially notable though with the mother-daughter pairs Sumia and Cynthia and Cordelia and Severa in the respective dubs (Ayano Yamamoto and Creator/JulieAnnTaylor respectively). Also Donnel and Stahl share the same English [[Creator/SamRiegel actor]].

** In terms of L.A-based roles, Creator/ToddHaberkorn went on to typically play SmugSnakes or {{Villains}} (like [[LightNovel/SwordArtOnline Sugou/Oberon]] and [[Manga/SailorMoon Jadeite]]). Male Morgan is neither of these, and is a bit of a dork, and is also NiceGuy.

* AccidentallyAccurate: A joke in the Avatar's supports with Frederick has them trick him into eating bear meat ([[RunningGag again]]) by claiming it's "venison". While the word is nigh-exclusively used to refer to deer meat nowadays (and this was clearly the intention of the statement), technically, ''any'' meat from a hunt can be called venison.
