Why do people main Lucina? Is there a good reason for it?
I think you'll find that a lot of people like cute characters regardless of how good or bad they are.
I just enjoy using her, admittingly I just don't like Marth as much either.
>inb4 learn to tip
I know how to tip since a friend kept pestering me to but in the end I enjoyed being in closer combat with Lucina than having to space myself to tip .
I honestly don't see what the big deal is if someone decides to main a character they just like. That's my reasoning for also maining Greninja and Wario
But... you know that Lucina is just that? Marth without the tip? I mean like, really, they have the exact same power base aside from that.
Let's talk number for a minute. Let's say a simple slash from marth deals 4% and the tip deals 6%. It would have been logical to make Lucina deals 5% with the complete sword. But no. She just deals 4% with the complete sword. And aside from that they're 100% the same. Not faster, not lighter, not anything. The same.
I wanted Lucina in this game and I was really disapointed when I saw that but this is it: Lucina is litteraly Marth without the tip. So there's no real point in using her since you can play the same character with a little luck-based bonus if you're not that good.
Aside from that and if we're talking "fun", I can understand why Lucina is played. FE:A is more popular in EU/US than any other Fire Emblem game, and Math doesn't remember anything to anyone here (except melee).
>Exact same power base aside from the tipper
Marth's sword without landing tippers do 12.5% less damage than Lucina's sword, but his tippers do 25% more damage than Lucina's sword.
I can play with Marth. Spacing your shit is easy in Smash 4. I just prefer Lucina as a character in the series in general, and I like not having to rely on this crutch to be able to win.
You're wrong, Lucina's attacks do more damage than non-tippers, check the charts. Also I'm sure someone can argue that Lucina's longer perfect pivot is an adavantage.
Lucina is good for casuals, at higher levels Marth is the better character
It sucks that Lucina has less reach than Marth because her body is slightly smaller.
I played Lucina a bit because she's cute, but then going to Marth its like you have a ton more range and kill power.
All Lucina has is the more reliable U-Smash.
Not only that but Marth only gets good smash out of his attacks with the tip while with Lucina you get much better smash with the length of the blade. I mean Marth is basically just better since he hits harder and smashes further, but you can make an argument that Lucina is more versatile since you don't need to maintain a specific distance for your attacks to be effective.
Because Lucina is Cute! Cute! Cute!
I've always hated Marth since Melee, never liked his twink face or voice, but his playstyle was pretty bangin', so yeah.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little Moblin? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Gerudo Shooting Range, and I’ve been involved in numerous bossfights with Odalwa, and I have over 300 colorful masks. I am trained in Goron warfare and I’m the top slinger in the entire Kokiri Forest. You are nothing to me but just another pot I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before in Hyrule, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the course of seven years? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of Owl Statues across the fields and your treasure chest is being traced right now so you better prepare for the Song of Storms, scrub. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your windmill. You’re fucking dead, gramps. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with an empty bottle. Not only am I extensively trained in tennis combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Happy Mask Store and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the timeline, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn Keese. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, grampa.
>Why do people main Lucina? Is there a good reason for it?
She's an easier version of marth. Although, Marth is slightly better. Mostly because she's cute I guess.
But Robin is where the shit's at.
>you will never receive a loving, affectionate blowjob from Lucina
>good projectile game
>Arcfire wrecks everything
>Nosferatu gets health back pretty decently
>best Final Smash
This guy knows where it's at.
Maining both Awakening chars kicks ass.
>implying Robin is totally unusable
I mean your facts would probably be relevant if Robin hasn't been shown to win a fair amount of matches before.
He isn't though.
A great player like Nairo can make everything work. Somewhat. His Robin falls apart against top level players too and he relies on stage knowledge to win.
>>Why do people main Lucina? Is there a good reason for it?
It draws in autistic neckbeards. Thats all to it, not a big secret.
>these threads will continue to get posted every 4 hours day in and day out and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it
It seems shit like that is what the majority here wants. Day after day retarded waifu bullshit which has barely anything to do with videogames and is only about dumping the same shitty pictures over and over while spamming retarded oneliners. I guess its okay if autistic manchildren do it.
Because I'd rather go for the safer, more reliable kill moves then to hope I land the tipper.
I say "hope" because Smash4 is literally nothing but hoping and waiting for your opponent to fuck up. When the moment comes I don't want to be crippled by not getting the tip with Marth.
I've been recently gitting gud with Robin, so I'm not well-versed, but here's what I got out of my couple matches:
>Use a quick Smash attack to get the Levin Sword out, Down Smash has fairly decent range
>Up-aerial like a motherfucker
>Arcthunder is better than Thoron for setups
>Arcfire is very good, think Ness and PK Fire when setting up with that
>Nosferatu is almost always completely useless, if you can get it off, go from behind if possible and use that time to think
>Eyes on Robin always, check if the tomes and Levin Sword is flashing to see how many uses are left
>Grab range is godawful, but the grab itself is not bad, go for that instead of Nosferatu if you got life lead or know you can win
For Marth, it's just Lucina with spacing involved.
Holy shit please let there be more of other characters dressing up as tharja.
Least sucky one I could find, and that ain't saying much.
You're assisting it quite considerably by offering commentary to for the only other party present(people who want the thread) to respond to.
Even if they're as basic as me and here for Lucina images, replying to your post because I'm slightly bored.
Why is Lucina so malnourished?
Because she gets no tips
I was going more for the gimmick of non-slut wearing slut clothes, rather than other slut wearing slut clothes. Still not bad though.
>Nosferatu is almost always completely useless, if you can get it off, go from behind if possible and use that time to think
Use it as a grab you can activate in the air to come down on opponents that like to shield too much. They see you jump up and they shield expecting an aerial and that's when you Nosteratu because it ignores shield like a regular grab. Once you're trained then to stop shielding this you can jump in with Arcfire or an aerial to stop confusing them.
Also even though Arcthunder has better setups than Thoron, sometimes it pays to have Thoron charged just because you'd be surprised how much it scares your opponent. You'll seriously get in their head just by holding onto Thoron while they're at high percents. I don't think either of you are still here but maybe someone else will use this.
Second poster here, I appreciate you helping me bust Robin more.
I'm still here. I was the one to originally ask for tips. Just didnt really know what to respond to what the other guy said.
Ive actually had the Thoron mindgames thing in my head for a while. Big offensive things as distraction is a tactic you see around sometimes.
I wanted a less of a skill sink Marth and that's what she is; A bad Marth clone that still feels like Marth, which doesn't punish you as hard for playing for fun, because it's already bad.
Her design being neat and her flat chest shutting my SJWs up is a bonus.
Let's be honest, do you think she'll come back for the next Smash? Why or why not? What are the chances of her return?
What could they do to make her more unique from Marth?
I don't main her but I play her occasionally because she's
I like the speed she has vs Marth and am willing to sacrifice tipper for that.
I predict she'll go the way of Roy and some character from the new game coming out will take her place.
I think she's gonna get the axe, or get made an alt costume for Marth or something.
They probably won't drop Marth, Ike, or Robin since all three of them are generally pretty different from one another, while Lucina is a Marth clone aside from some smaller differences.
Honestly if Ike didn't get axed between Brawl and Sm4sh I doubt he ever will.
>Why do people main Lucina?
Because she's girl Marth that's well rounded and for the handful of Smashfags that actually play the games that Smash pulls its reps from their waifu-fags.
Why do you care what character people play in smash? Do you go apeshit when someone picks Ryu in Street Fighter?
Lucina's chances aren't great, considering how she's pretty much been in one game and her popularity may wane some day, so she's at least assured a trophy in any new Smash games, but I'd be totally fine with her returning for the next Smash, either as a costume or full character.
In terms of making her unique, there really isn't much to do except make her like a Ganondorf-tier clone by giving her a different idle stance, different attack animations, and maybe changing one or two moves around like making her Side-B do 5 hits or making her Up-B into an Aether-like like Kirby and Ike have.
I'd be completely okay with it, Marth's old as dirt anyways, best to let the future take root.
Too bad it'll never happen because he's technically a series face.
>no PaLucina doujins where they bang, marry, and Lucina ascends to godhood
I got a ton of setups for this shit in the old noodle.
Here as in Japan? Maybe by Fujoshi. But Fujoshi and males loves Lucina.
But now when they have four Fire Emblems characters, Ike and Robin looks most likely to get axed. Robin more than Ike though.
I like the sword balance.
When I compete, I main Marth for tip.
When I play for fun, Lucina does the job.
The thing about Ike and Robin is that they got their own unique movesets, which makes them less likely to get cut unless something takes priority, like Mewtwo in Brawl or Ice Climbers in 4, so unless there's a guy in If or whatever comes out after that totally shits all over Ike and Robin in terms of a unique moveset and popularity, expect them to stay.
I think Lucina might be the most boring character to face in for glory
Why can't we just have all four and whatever new ones they'll add? Why does everyone assume someone will get cut for someone else?
Does Fire Emblem not deserve more than four characters?
They have cut characters since Melee. And the rooster is pretty fucking big now and with upcomming IP's.
But Awakening boosted Fire Emblems popularity in the west, so all four could be staying.
If you think /v/ is bad at discussing smash, don't even look at /v/ discussing actual fighting games like SF4. It's like watching a paraplegic kid with downs syndrome trying to swim upstream a fast-moving river.
>wanting the flattest chest with the flattest personality
How can you complain about McDonalds when people eat at McDonalds all the time?
>tfw you fight a Mario in FG
How can anyone have such boring taste?
>tries to overuse a single move
>takes 1 stock off form them
Is Sm4sh full of autism?
Don't dash attack all the time. It's extremely predictable, and can be easily punished.
If you get ledge campers, walk towards them. Ftilt if they stay there, down smash if they roll.
Side B is a good punish if you predict a projectile.
Anna literally took out Cordelia's arms since she was covering her tits with them and Anna going "Woooooow now THAT'S a problem".
And in the hot spring DLC Anna literally tells Severa that it is a miracle she got tits at all considering her mother is incredibly flat.
They even go in great detail and everything about how Gaius doesn't have a six pack due to his addition to candy; Chrom having an amazing toned body and how it's almost impossible for Tharja to have such a hot body without using some sort of hex to achieve it.
I'm still salty, I expected great women but their personalities were just too terrible
When you have men like Frederick, Lon qu, Virion, Henry, Gaius, Owain, Basilio, Gregor, hell even Donnel you have to wonder what the hell went so wrong with the girls
>rosterfags fw Lucina comes back in Smash 5 and they literally do zero changes to her
Smash is primarily a competitive game, so a good reason to main someone is that they are competitively viable.
Lucina is not viable, so no one seriously playing the game should consider playing her.
So everyone who doesnt main Diddy Kong, Shieck, Rosalina, or Zero Suit Samus, is doing it wrong?
