* BadExportForYou: A mild case of it in the european version of ''7'', as followed:
** The epilogue with Roy and Lilina as children and Zephiel turning out to be a bad guy was excised, [[FridgeLogic for whatever reason]].
** [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking The Level Up-animation also reverted to how it looked like in Sword of Seals]][[note]]The words just popping up out of nowhere instead of appearing in a flash of light[[/note]], [[FridgeLogic likewise without any apparent reason whatsoever]].
** [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Also, when you start the game with the english language, the prelude of Chapter 16x/17x has one line written in]] ''[[MindScrew italian]]''.
* NoExportForYou: ''7'' was brought over, thus averting this trope for the first time in the series.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Fire Emblem 6:
*** Guenivere was intended to be playable and act as a second lord.
*** Tate and Lilina may have been related.
*** Zephiel and Murdock may have been brothers.
*** Zephiel's weapon, the Exxacus, had durability and was intended to be acquired after defeating him. In addition, the eponymous weapon was also intended to be acquired the same way.
*** [[spoiler:Yahn]] survived his battle and would be fought alongside [[spoiler:Idoun]] as a DualBoss.
*** Data exists that suggests that Blizzard might have been intended to have been a long-ranged weaponry. Evidently, Meteor was also supposed to make a return but was not coded into the game.
*** There may have been Dark Dragons fought alongside [[spoiler:Idun]]. Complete with droppable Dragonstones that Fae would have been able to equip. The jury's still out on if they were supposed to be mass-produced versions of the stronger version of the Earth Dragons seen in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia the Archanea games]], however.
** Fire Emblem 7:
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_ZZJYgqyhY Durandal]] had a different animation and appearance, and was intended to be used by Lyn, too.
*** Vaida was originally supposed to be a Bernese Noble, and would have been revealed as Heath's sister.
*** Raven originally had grey hair, and Heath had red hair.
*** The Dancer and Bard rings originally had ribbon icons and could be used as a menu item.
*** The still images were in full colour and did not have a Sepia-hue over them.
