WMG / Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Go To

Byleth is a Reverse Grima
  • One of the lines in the trailer is "the crests [of the goddess] are to blame", implying that the goddess is actually the Big Bad of these games. It could be possible that The Church of Serios is actually a Corrupt Church and the protagonists are unaware of this. Initially it will be set up that Byleth (whose name means "legions of hell") is the vessel for whatever demonic entity is there in these games... but in reality, that "demonic" entity is designed to defeat the goddess and put a stop to her evil plans.

Byleth can be customized
  • They're just showing them as male for marketing purposes.
    • Could also be downplayed; you'll be able to select Byleth's gender, but his/her appearance is fixed due to the improved graphics making avatar characters more difficult to implement.

There will be three paths to take.
  • The trailer showed Byleth prominently following Edelgard, but if Dimitri and Claude are just as important, then it stands to reason that Byleth could follow them too at the player's discretion. The other two would then join later in the path, but would be Out of Focus.

That old guy with the whip chain sword is an Anti-Villain.
  • At the time of writing, there's literally nothing to go on other than his design and that he's a badass that's capable of handling a bunch of soldiers by himself. But Fire Emblem is no stranger to noble Anti-Villain types, so it's possible this guy might be exactly that.

The three kingdoms form into a Tactical Rock–Paper–Scissors of sort.
It is mainly by the weapon they mainly use (such as Sword-Lance-Axe)
  • While Claude is shown using a bow, it doesn't rule out each of the kingdoms being associated with a non-weapon triangle tool (staves, bows, and daggers, assuming they're returning).

The whip sword used by the older man in the trailer indicates that sword whips will be a new weapon.
  • Given that the series has rarely made long range swords that weren't magical, the game could create whip swords that could be used as long range weapons to match Javelins and Hand Axes.

Byleth and Edelgard will be each other's Implied Love Interest
  • The trailer suggests Edelgard has known Byleth for a while. And if Byleth really is a customizable character then the two will be continuing an apparent tradition set by the last few games. Otherwise, it'd just be more in the same vein as Eliwood/Ninian or Eirika/Seth.

The Support System in these games:
  • Pair ups and stat boosts from S support will be there but modified. As for second generation characters, at a certain stage in the game Byleth will travel to the future be able to recruit the children of whatever characters are already married (as opposed to them traveling back in time). This would be a good way to have a second gen without just being a carbon copy of Fire Emblem Awakening.

Building on the above, same sex S supports will be improved and retooled
  • After Fates' divisive take on same sex pairings, this game will probably be an Author's Saving Throw in that regard. More characters aside from Byleth will be able to have same sex love interests, and building on the Elegard and Byleth being the implied canon pairing WMG, it will be possible for a female Byleth to also achieve S support with her. Thereby satisfying the crowd who shipped Azura/Female Corrin indirectly.

Possible voice actors

Second Gen characters from Fates will appear.
Forrest is one of the most likely candidates due to his popularity. It would be even more hilarious if he has a daughter that looks like a female version of Leo.

First gen characters from Fates will appear.
  • Birthright Arthur and Conquest Oboro will show up as wandering ronin, having left Fateslandia in a haze after the deaths of their respective masters.
    • Considering how difficult it is to avoid killing Oboro in Conquest, it's more likely that we'll get Kagero.
  • Selena and Subaki on their honeymoon. Bonus points if they have another child and mention Caledori a couple of times.
    • This bit is unlikely given InSyst has avoided making anything the player chooses concrete, despite implications, since Jugdral. Just look at the lengths Fates went to avoid naming Selena (Severa), Odin (Owain), and Laslow (Inigo)'s fathers.

You will be able to choose what color your army is.
Red team for the win!

Plot Twist: The crests aren't to blame.
The Goddess will turn out to be a subversion of the Medeus archetype, and Edelgard is just an idiot or a dupe.

The Medeus archetype won't be the Final Boss.
The heroes waste the big bad dragon/demon/god(dess)/whatever and figure killing it will immediately solve all of the world's problems. It doesn't.

Claude will be the game's flirtatious character.
He gives off a bit of a playboy vibe to me, so it wouldn't surprise me if he turned out to be The Casanova or a Casanova Wannabe.

Byleth turns out to be the Big Bad, and his/her child is the true main character and avatar
This could be an interesting twist with call-backs to Fire Emblem 4, where the true hero doesn't emerge until the second generation. This would also give more of a purpose to child characters (who felt kind of shoehorned into Fates).

Byleth's origin will be customizable
Fates had an avatar that is a Vallite but raised in both Nohr and Hoshido. The avatar in this game will have an option in the creation stage on which house they hail from. It will affect on who their starting lord is as well as their class, weapons, and/or skills.

Anna will be playable through DLC
Might as well get this one out of the way. Anna’s been a DLC character in both Fates and Warriors. Maybe they’ll make it three for three (if we’re not going to count Heroes).
  • Two for four. She's not DLC in Awakening (she joins in Paralogue 4) nor Warriors (you have to collect all of Anna's Mementos and then beat the tar out of her).

A character will be renamed to Willow in the English version.

Because we've already had characters renamed to Cordelia and Xander.
