* SpoonyBard: While she ''can'' use swords, this doesn't amount to much with a base Strength of ''3'' and a Strength growth of '''10%'''. She'd be the weakest combatant in the game if that title wasn't already taken by Daisy.

Added DiffLines:

* JokeCharacter: Man, if he doesn't know how hard it is to use him well.


Added DiffLines:

* SelfDeprecation: Considering how the other Armor Knights in prior games tended to struggle with being useful, Arden is basically one big LampshadeHanging of their issues.

* AdaptationalBadass: ''Heroes'' makes him a rather unique MightyGlacier, having one of the lowest Speed and Resistance stats in the whole game, but also some of the highest HP, Attack, and Defense. What makes him unique is his special Follow-Up Ring, which allows him to always perform an extra attack [[ActionInitiative regardless of his actual speed stat]] if he's above half HP. Combined with his Brave Sword, this allows him to be one of the only armored units in the game to be capable of consistently performing quadruple attacks. Add in an inherited Special such as Bonfire or Ignis that takes advantage of his obscene Defense, and he's a much tougher beast than he was in his game of origin. Also put in the fact that his old problem (being a low movement unit in a game with huge maps) is omitted (the maps in ''Heroes'' are much smaller), he can put his new advantages to use more often.

Added DiffLines:

* PurposefullyOverpowered: If one counts the first part of ''Genealogy'' to be its own campaign (which it functionally is), Sigurd is regarded as ''the'' strongest Lord in the franchise. He starts promoted in a game with no downside to being promoted, his growths are ridiculous due to major holy blood, his weapons are excellent, he's incredibly mobile in a game with giant maps, and once he's picked up Tyrfing, he might as well be invincible. This is to make as sure as possible that you'll miss him when he's gone.


* SpellMyNameWithAnS: For ages, folks thought his name was a variant of "Holyn", because of how his name is spelled in katakana (ホリン). It was only when the [=NoA=] localizers, when working on ''VideoGame/FireEmblemHeroes'', apparently laid hands on Kaga's notes that they, and everyone, realized that he actually has the other half of the name of [[Myth/CelticMythology Cú Chulainn]].

Added DiffLines:

** On the other hand, Dew is considered one of her best matches, so this can ultimately be subverted.


* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype: Sigurd is your basic noble ''Fire Emblem'' hero holding fast to his beliefs. Unfortunately for him, his optimism and noble nature become a double-edged sword in the grand scheme of things, as his BlackAndWhiteMorality leads him to solve his problems by just defeating his enemies. Many of his conflicts are the result of being too much like a typical ''Fire Emblem'' Lord, and not being savvy enough to think things through.

Many of his conflicts are the result of being too much like a typical ''Fire Emblem'' Lord, and not being savvy enough to think things through. For instance, in the game at least, his fight with Clement was almost completely unnecessary. Clement only mobilized because Sigurd had conquered a third of the country and Clement assumed it was an invasion. Clement even viewed himself as a dying hero fighting the evil invaders. At least that's one way you can interpret his death quote.

Added DiffLines:

* LightningBruiser: One of the most outstanding examples in the series. His bases are enough to outclass any physical unit, plus he has the highest growth rate total by far of the entire first generation.

Added DiffLines:

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Another one of the big examples; "Tiltyu" was an accepted transliteration of her name from kana in the [=90s=], but even then some people took issue with it because of [[UnfortunateNames certain issues noted below]]. One or two Japanese sources also spelled her name "Tailte", but nobody thought that was right... until it turned out it ''was''. (Kind of.) The whole problem with her stems from the fact that she is named after a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tailtiu comparatively obscure figure in Irish-Gaelic myth]]; in old Irish, the nearest anglicization of her name is "Tailtiu", and more modern versions go for "Tailte". There's also an argument that says the spelling should be "Tail'''l'''tiu", to get the L right. "Tiltyu" came about due to the kana used for the Japanese transliteraion of the Irish name and the character being obscure to all but the most dedicated of scholars of Irish myth prior to the widespread availability of the Internet.
