Trivia / Fire Emblem Elibe

  • Bad Export for You: A mild case of it in the European version of Blazing Sword, as followed:
    • The epilogue with Roy and Lilina as children and Zephiel turning out to be a bad guy was excised, for whatever reason.
    • The level-up animation also reverted to how it looked in The Binding Bladenote , likewise without any apparent reason whatsoever.
    • Also, when you start the game with the English language, the opening text of Chapter 16x/17x has one line written in Italian.
  • Marth Debuted in "Smash Bros.": Actually, in contrast to the trope namer, Roy did debut in that series, six weeks before The Binding Blade came out.
  • Name's the Same: Morgan from The Binding Blade. We apologize in advance for having you find out that your son/daughter is associated with such a throwaway boss.
  • No Export for You: Most Western players know The Binding Blade through a fan-created translation patch, as the game has never been officially localized. Its prequel averts this by being the first localized installment in the series.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • The Binding Blade:
      • Guinivere 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, Eckesachs, 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.
      • Jahn survived his battle and would be fought alongside Idenn as a Dual Boss.
      • 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 Idenn. 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 the Archanea games, however.
      • An even earlier plan (revealed in the "Making of Fire Emblem" book) had Roy becoming king of the Western Isles halfway through the game. Which would explain why the Western Isles arc feels the least integrated into the overall plot in the final game: It was originally meant to be a "find a new land" plot.
    • Blazing Sword:
      • 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.
