* BreakoutCharacter: Even though these games didn't sell all that well, Ike qualifies handily for this trope on multiple levels. In the West, he is greatly loved for being RatedMForManly alongside other extremely popular Lords like Sigurd and Hector, and he is a very strong contender for "most popular Lord in the franchise" since [[AmericansHateTingle Marth's games aren't held in nearly as high a regard outside Japan]]. And even in the east where the older games are better received than the newer ones, Ike still managed to claim first place in a series-wide [[http://i.imgur.com/YqAdnKl.jpg Famitsu popularity poll]], beating out even Marth, the series' original hero and previous fan favorite. He also has the ''Super Smash Bros.'' franchise to thank for this, as Ike frequently ranks very high in popularity polls and is a much loved fighter, with only Captain Falcon beating him in sheer [[MemeticBadass craziness]]. Ike's popularity is so great, his ''Path of Radiance'' incarnation got first place in the male half of the "Choose Your Legends" poll for ''VideoGame/FireEmblemHeroes'', both his [=PoR=] and ''Radiant Dawn'' incarnations were in the top 10, and if all of his votes were combined, he would be the highest voted character in the entire series.

** Ike is literally one of the most popular lords in the series, if not then the most popular. Besides his fame from [[SuperSmashBros Smash]], there aren't many lords who get such universal love. He's so popular that in a poll for characters wanted to be in Fire Emblem Heroes, Ike is in the top five, TWICE. His Path of Radiance version is number one while his Radiant Dawn version is number Five.

* CrackIsCheaper: ''Path of Radiance'' on Amazon is... pricey, to say the least. Even a used copy will set you back a hundred dollars.

** The premiere Marksman of the Tellius series, Shinon, counts as this in ''Radiant Dawn,'' with his high Strength, Speed, Skill and Avoid ensuring that he'll be doubling everything, never getting hit by anything, and critically-hitting a lot of the time, as well as activating his Mastery Skill Deadeye often, which if it doesn't kill the target immediately puts them to sleep, which tends to be overkill as it ''triples'' the damage dealt by the attack. A far cry from his status as a CrutchCharacter in ''Path of Radiance,'' as well as his being affected by CantCatchUp.

** Just as Ike is one of the most popular heroes, the BlackKnight is one of the most popular villains in the whole series for his [[TinTyrant badass design]], memorable boss fights, his tragic backstory, and the [[FaceHeelRevolvingDoor ambiguity over his true morality]]. He even got his own Mii costume in the fourth ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' game.

** You get a massive amount of Bonus Exp for completing ''Path of Radiance'' Chapter 10 without being seen by the guards, i.e. playing it as a pure stealth mission. This is nearly impossible without a turn-by-turn walkthrough, as the guards' movements are erratic and unpredictable, and you need to uplock all the cells before leaving or you'll miss several recruits. (On the Japan-only Maniac mode, it's even worse, as the prisoners all need to ''escape'' the map in order to be recruited)

** Getting the secret epilogue conversation involving Soren in ''Radiant Dawn'' requires a lot of set-up even if you know the GuideDangIt steps. You need to have him fight Micaiah in 3-7 and Pelleas in 3-E, both of whom are right at the end of a large map and surrounded by tons of very strong units, including multiple boss-tier characters. The best way to do it requires having the foresight to give Callil's Meteor tome in Part 2 to Haar, who joins Ike's group in Part 3, so that Soren can use it to hit both from a distance. Even then, Soren needs to get pretty deep into enemy lines in 3-E, which, seeing as he's a SquishyWizard, is a daunting prospect in itself. (Also, Nolan and Edward are on the best path for him to take, and both are ThatOneBoss if you trained them)

** Special mention goes to Stefan. He [[TheMentor offers]] Ike some sword lessons (that actually grant one of the only 4 Occult skills in the [=PoR=]), is [[spoiler: descended from one of Ashera's 3 heroes]], and is clearly [[StepfordSmiler less jovial than he lets on.]] However, he adds nothing except for some special conversations and a Vague Katti.
