I don’t think I got her in the DLC for Smash 4 on WiiU, so this was my first time with Corrin. I missed out on Fire Emblem Fates on 3DS, so I never got a chance to play her game. But I do admire the character from design alone.
Also like Robin, Corrin was meant to be an “avatar” character in the Fire Emblem games. Meaning you can make Corrin male or female. Same holds true for Smash Bros. but honestly, who picks male Corrin? Also, neither Corrin likes to wear shoes…weird.
I will admit, when I faced Corrin players online, her moves looked pretty good and I have faced some good players who have used Corrin.
Unlike Robin, she has a counter-move like the rest of the Fire Emblem cast. But I didn’t find it as strong as some others.
Her final smash calls on her game-lore to transform into a dragon knight.
And then a literal dragon thing.
And some poor fool will be thrown into a cyclone. While it is powerful, it’s pretty easy to miss with it.
When Kirby takes her power, he gets the ability to blast an orb of energy. Unlike Samus’s famous laser ball, this one “paralyzes” a foe. While it’s good about inflicting damage, it rarely ends up helping you knock a player off-screen.
She would be a lot better if her attacks had more power, so I hate to say that I didn’t like playing as her. Such a shame, maybe in an future version update she might get some justice.
