Now through January 31, Fire Emblem fans are voting to see which hero and heroine from across series history will be featured in the upcoming mobile game, Fire Emblem Heroes. As of yesterday, Ike and Lyn were winning. Surely we can do better than that.

Maybe the right people aren’t voting. Maybe they’re put off by the idea of a free-to-play mobile tactics game for iOS and Android. That’s no reason not to head over to Nintendo’s voting page and wave your Chrom and Lucina flag.

Mind you I am not saying Chrom and Lucina should win. I would also be happy if both male and female forms of Robin topped the vote. Or maybe Chrom and Lucina. All I am saying is Ike, who is in the rankings twice for both Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, is a boring choice that makes me sad.

Here are the current standings of the Choose Your Legends vote, tweeted out yesterday by Nintendo of America.

Suck it, male Corrin.

According to Nintendo the standings are quite close, so it’s still anybody’s game. And considering the whole point of Fire Emblem Heroes is to bring together characters from across the entire series, building an all-star army to battle evil, eventually it will be everybody’s game.

But voting is fun, and everybody who votes gets 200 Platinum Points in their My Nintendo account and mobile wallpaper featuring the winning characters once the game launches on iOS and Android on February 2. No one wants Ike wallpaper, do they?

Which two characters would you like to see win this thing, other than Chrom and Lucina? Don’t say Ike.

It’s like you people never played a FE game before the 3DS. Hector, Roy, Lyn, Ephraim, and Eirka were all better characters. And they had nicer looking art.

This is without even mentioning non-main characters from those games, or characters from the Japan only console games which came before them
