Fire Emblem: Different Dimensions: Ostian Princess (also known as Fire Emblem: Ostian Princess) is a Game Mod of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade made by a Brazilian romhacker Mig64. Ostian Princess is an alternate history rom hack, in which the player controls the titular Ostian Princess, Lilian.

The rom hack is notable for being So Bad, It's Good. Among other things, the hack gives you units with insane inventories (for example, in the first chapter, there is a player unit who has a Brave Sword, a Light Brand and a Silver Sword on chapter 1!) and some weird design choices (for example, the end turn button was removed. Yes, the end turn button of all things was removed). You can check out Endorphy's LP of this trainwreck if you want to amuse yourself.


This game has examples of:

  • Aerith and Bob: You meet people such as Sephyz, Marf, Holy and then you meet people like Zack and Diego.
  • Action Girl: Lilian, Sephyz and Serra.
  • Accidental Pervert: Some of the dialogue of the game was left unchanged which led to some... weird exchanges. Such as this one in chapter 1:
    Axel: "Oh, my heart! What a dazzling vision of loveliness!"note 
    Endorph: "We've got laziness leading to horrible implications about ten year olds!"
  • Atrocious Alias: Batta the Bitch and Mundo the Sucker.
  • Author Avatar: The default tactican name is Mig.
  • Bad Boss: Queen Hellene to her subordinate, Murdock:
    Hellene: "Fail, Murdock. Fail and die."
  • Boss in Mook Clothing: In Chapter 2, where Lilian gets the Mani Katti, the romhacker added an Assassin replacing one of the fighter mooks. The problem? It's an assassin, meaning that if he reaches someone, he has a chance to activate the Silencer/Lethality skill, which kills anyone in one hit. He is harder than the boss from the episode itself!

  • Can't Catch Up: Kin. Combining terrible stats and low movement doesn't do much for him.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: Pick up your killer axe... and kill!
  • Disconnected Side Area: In Chapter 3, there is a house on the north that gives 2000 gold if the player visits it. In the original game, the player had to use the Pegasus Knight to reach it but since Florina, the pegasus knight was replaced by Sephyz and that now fighters can destroy villages, that place becomes almost impossible to reach without the use of cheat codes.
  • Disc-One Nuke: Every single character's inventory is this. To starters, Lilian starts with Bolt and Fire, alongside the Guilding Ring, Axel starts with Divine and Lighting, powerful Light tomes and the list goes on and on.
  • Expy: Sephyz, with her long grey hair, sword skills, and suspiciously similar name, seems to be a genderswapped copy of Sephiroth.
  • Glass Cannon: Zack. He starts off with three amazing weapons (Brave Sword, Light Brand and Silver Sword), has good strength and skill... but he has no defense! and he also has no constitution!, that means, everyone will hit him twice and every weapon that he uses will slow him down!
    • As mentioned above, there is a glitch that will make Zack's defense go from 0 to 31, making him powerful and sturdy against enemy attacks (In comprasion, Wallace in Blazing Sword had 17 defense and was one of the sturdiest playable characters).
  • Game-Breaking Bug: A few.
    • The game had a tendency to randomly lock up during certain cutscenes, with the starting cutscene of Chapter 4 being a notable offender.
    • Promoting Serra causes the game to glitch out wildly, which usually leads to freezing.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Ju, an archer appears in one chapter and suddenly leaves on the next one.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Geitz, due to his speed, power and durability. Sephyz also counts if promoted in the chapter that she joins.
  • Manchild: Kin comes off as an adult who talks like a scared child. This is due to most of his dialogue is recycled from the young Nils, while his design is a recolored Harken.
  • Mighty Glacier: Holy who has every stat capped except for luck, yet only has 2 movement meaning that he will not be going anywhere anytime soon.
  • Palette Swap: Basically every playable character, aside from Matthew, Serra and Natalie.
  • Previous Player-Character Cameo: ...Sort of. Previous playable units appears as bosses in this game for... some reason. Examples includes Oswin and Legault. Hector also appears, but his cameo appearance is the same as the one in vanilla game.
  • Series Continuity Error: Because the romhacker apparently didn't realize that The Blazing Blade is a prequel despite coming later, some of the returning characters appear to be as their younger selves despite significant time has passed after its sequel The Binding Blade (Lilina is old enough to have a daughter to be the protagonist for one). Even the choices of characters and their new roles makes little sense, such as Hector is slowly poisoned by Uther (who should be dead by the end of The Blazing Blade) instead of being killed during the invasion of Bern, Serra and Matthew serving different Houses, Oswin and Legault acting like lowly bandits, Zephiel appears as his teenage self and lamenting how he wouldn't appear in The Binding Blade when he is defeated...
  • Too Awesome to Use: Good news! The Mani Katti is here. Bad news! Lilian can't use it.note 
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: Or better, who names their kid, Marf Santangelo?

How well does it match the trope?
