* IKnewIt: When [[spoiler:Male Morgan]] was confirmed as the boss of the [[spoiler:first Future Past DLC Chapter]], some fans theorized that [[spoiler:Female Morgan]] would be the boss of the [[spoiler:second chapter]]. They were right. Even less people were surprised that the [[spoiler:third and final Future Past DLC Chapter]]'s boss turned out to be [[spoiler:Grima]].

* NewbieBoom: The game got more marketing in the West than previous titles, giving it much better mainstream exposure than its predecessors. It went on to become the best selling ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' 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.

* {{Jossed}}: It has been theorised that Lon'qu, the swordsman who CannotTalkToWomen, would extend his awkwardness around them to [[spoiler: his own prospect daughters from the future, should he marry a first generation character who gives birth to a girl]]. The Future Past DLC josses this: [[spoiler: if he marries Tharja and then he goes rescue the alternate universe!Noire, AU!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'']].

* 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, as it became one of the best selling titles in the franchise, and was a commercial and critical success in Japan and western countries.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* ActorAllusion: Creator/TravisWillingham voicing a samurai-type character who is also pretty stoic, and also happens to be a PerpetualFrowner... [[Manga/DGrayMan where have we heard that before]]?



** There were also a surprisingly large number of people who guessed, before the game was released, that [[spoiler: [[SamusIsAGirl "Marth" was actually a girl.]]]]

* 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.

** 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.



* RelationshipVoiceActor: If you recruit [[spoiler: Walhart and Priam]], then [[spoiler: Creator/RichardEpcar and Creator/JamiesonPrice]] once again voice [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriors super strong warriors]] [[OneManArmy capable of wiping out hundreds of soldiers]] in the same army. Though their characters never interact, [[spoiler:except for their Hot Spring Scramble conversations,]] their roles kind of intersect, too, since [[spoiler: Walhart and Dong Zhuo are both [[EvilOverlord evil overlords]], and Priam and Lu Bu are [[BloodKnight fight-happy]] killing machines.]]

* RelationshipVoiceActor: The English dub provides many examples.
** [[Manga/DGrayMan Yu Kanda and Allen Walker]] can potentially be father and son as [[Creator/TravisWillingham Lon'qu]] and [[Creator/ToddHaberkorn Male Morgan]].

* ManOfAThousandVoices: In the Japanese version, [[Creator/MiyukiSawashiro the same lady]] does ''all'' the female Avatar voice options (which range from mature LadyOfWar to TokenMiniMoe) as well as [[CrossdressingVoices one of the male ones.]]



** PlayingAgainstType: Creator/SpikeSpencer as a [[SissyVillain Sissy]] SmugSnake [[DudeLooksLikeALady that looks like a lady]], Creator/LiamOBrien voicing a ''heroic'' ChivalrousPervert, and StephanieSheh playing a confident, training-loving knight.

* NewbieBoom: A major source for the FireEmblem series. It's the best selling Fire Emblem game ever and helped to draw in many new players to the fandom.
** Ever since Robin and Lucina were announced as playable characters in [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros U/3DS]], people who were interested in playing as them quickly learned of their roles in ''Awakening''. This got even more people interested in the 3DS game, and in some cases, the series in general (particularly the upcoming ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''). This only increased when the Corrin, the actual avatar of that game, got announced as a DLC fighter.
