Roy (Fire Emblem) Fandom and Hatedom

As long as we work together, we can save any fandom and hatedom. That's what I think, anyway.
Type: Character Fandoms and Hatedoms
Status: Active


Roy is the main character of Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade and the son of Eliwood who was one of the main characters of The Blazing Blade. His first appearance was in Super Smash Bros. Melee because he was there to promote his own game. Ever since he appeared there, both Marth and Roy made a greater level of Western interest in the Fire Emblem series and it encouraged Nintendo to release the series internationally with the first one being Blazing Blade. He makes a brief appearance at the end of Eliwood's route in that game and was a childhood friend of Hector's daughter, Lilina. In The Binding Blade, however, Roy was only at the age of 15 in Binding Blade's beginning. Roy was forced to return home when Bern begins its invasion, however, Eliwood can't fight due to sickness thus leading Roy to command his growing army against the forces of King Zephiel. He too is not safe from a toxic fandom and hatedom.

Why Neither Side Is "Our Boy"

Overall

  1. Opinion Lashing. What else did you expect?

Fandom

  1. Shipping Wars are featured in this fandom.
  2. Some claim to "like" Roy, yet they also blindly hate him in reality.
  3. When Roy was cut in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, some of his fans raged like a bunch of manchildren when he did not appear there and simply goes on hating and blaming Ike for Roy's disappearance.
  4. Not only do they hate Ike, but they also hate Roy Koopa from the Mario franchise as well because Roy joined as one of Bowser Jr.'s alternate costumes.
  5. Hypocrisy, they liked it when Roy was coming back as a DLC Character in Super Smash Bros. 4, yet they seem to complain about how Super Smash Bros. has "too many Fire Emblem characters".
  6. If you were to say you don't like Roy, chances are they will attack you and spam Roy-related memes. This is very common in the Super Smash Bros. Fandom and Hatedom.
  7. During the Melee days, they even made up a personality for Roy simply because Fire Emblem was not in international territories at that time (Even ones that are lame and outlandish).
  8. They will argue with Ike fans over which character is better. The reason being all because of the Super Smash Bros. games.

Hatedom

  1. Some even make offensive memes of Roy such as this[1]
  2. If you were to say you like Roy, there is a big chance that you would be mocked and bullied by a bunch of haters.
  3. Some hate Roy because he is "Another Marth and Lucina in Smash". His moveset does not dictate the quality of the character.
  4. They even hate Roy according to tier lists in the Super Smash Bros. games, especially Melee.
  5. Some even want Roy to die. Blame this article[2]
  6. They even hate Roy simply because of his stats as a playable unit in The Binding Blade where people would say "you have to protect him in the game until the near end." His stats do not dictate the quality of the character.
  7. They are sometimes unaware that Roy won first place on a popularity poll for Binding Blade hosted by Nintendo's Japanese website and some Japanese players appreciate the quality of him.
  8. This post on Reddit[3] as well as this but smaller[4]
    • Also this forum discussion[5]
  9. They raged when Roy came back with Super Smash Bros. 4 all because he's simply another Fire Emblem rep.
  10. Rare, but some hate Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade simply because of Roy. (One character does not dictate the quality of the game and there is a lot more to that game than just its protagonist.)
  11. Speaking of Super Smash Bros., some Roy haters are even part of Ike's fandom.
  12. They share similar problems with Corrin's hatedom.

How He Would Be "Our Boy" Again

Fandom

Hatedom

  1. They do have a point that Roy does have flaws.
  2. Some are not rabid haters.
  3. Some have a fair and good reason why they don't like Roy.
  4. Much like Corrin, they have a point about Roy being flawed in some degree.
