Chrom (クロム Chrom) is the prince of the Halidom of Ylisse, the younger brother of its current Exalt Emmeryn, and the elder brother of Princess Lissa. He is a descendant of the legendary Hero-King, bearing the Brand of Naga possessed by his bloodline on his right shoulder, and is the current wielder of the Falchion, Ylisse's national treasure. He is the captain of the Shepherds, an Ylissean militia initially convened to combat Plegian encroachment on Ylisse's borders, and led the combined forces of Ylisse and Ferox in wars with Plegia, the Valmese Empire and later the Grimleal, fighting to prevent the resurrection of the Fell Dragon Grima.

Chrom is one of the three main characters of Fire Emblem: Awakening, the others being the Avatar and his daughter, Lucina.

Personality and character

Chrom has been described by others as a direct man, one who possesses deep conviction in his chosen path.[1] He cares greatly for those around him and in his service, paying close attention to them and their needs.[2] He believes that as a leader, he must show strength in the face of fatigue and the burden of great work, so as to be an example and inspiration to others.[3] While he has the utmost respect for Emmeryn's pacifistic ways, and following her death seeks to honor her legacy, he believes that in the end force will be necessary to counteract those who would endanger a peaceful world and that if he must, he is willing to fight and kill to defend the peace.[4]

Chrom has the utmost faith in other people, particularly his friends and allies. No matter the circumstance or risk, he will attempt to aid anyone in need he encounters, fully aware of and willing to risk any potential consequences if it means.[5] His interest in aiding people goes beyond merely helping them: he is always seeking to forge new bonds of friendship and that doing so improves himself, his army and the people of the world.[6] He believes strongly in the power of unity, attesting that a united front tightly bound by friendship and trust can together overcome even the most powerful of individuals.[7]

Other appearances

The Chrom armor set in Monster Hunter: Frontier G.

Monster Hunter: Frontier G

The Wii U version of Monster Hunter: Frontier G, a massively multiplayer online RPG in Capcom's Monster Hunter franchise, will feature an exclusive armor set for male playable characters which allows them to dress as Chrom, as part of a collaborative promotion. Accompanying the costume is a pair of weapons: the Falchion and Fire Emblem (under the name 封剣ファルシオンI Sealed Sword Falchion I) as a shield and single-handed sword combo, and Nidhogg (双聖器ニーズヘッグI Sacred Twin Nidhogg I) as a bow weapon.[8]

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

Robin's Final Smash, including Chrom.
SSB.png
This article or section is a short summary of Chrom.
SmashWiki features a more in-depth article.

Chrom will feature in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, not as a playable character, but instead simply as part of Robin's Final Smash, in which Robin summons him to pair up to attack opponents. The games' director, Masahiro Sakurai, commented in his Famitsu column that he considered including Chrom as a playable character in his own right, but dropped him in favour of Robin, who he felt offered a more unique moveset, while Chrom was considered to be just "another plain-old sword-wielder like Marth and Ike"[9].

  1. "Perhaps because Chrom is not like Marth. He is much more direct, and committed to what he believes is right. Chrom might more resemble a different ancestor, from the age I was born in. Another great man in their line, from 1000 years before Marth... But the Marth of my time was wise and fair, and won hearts with his kindness." - Tiki, Fire Emblem: Awakening
  2. "I confess I sometimes find myself wishing for a respite. But then I remind myself how much harder it must be for you! Heavy lies the crown and all that, yes? So it's my duty to help you however I can!" - Maribelle, Fire Emblem: Awakening
  3. "Chrom: Y-yes, I'm fine. I just tripped on a pebble. Gods, how embarrassing.
    Sumia: It's because you're so exhausted! You've been working too hard lately.
    Chrom: I'm fine, Sumia. And besides, we're all tired. Such endless fighting wears on everyone.
    Sumia: Chrom, you've no need to don a brave face for my sake. You carry twice the burden of anyone. It's only natural you're exhausted.
    Chrom: Heh. You're kind to say so. But in truth, everyone looks to their commander for inspiration and strength. An army is only as stalwart as its leader. The instant I show weakness, we're through.
    Sumia: It must be so hard for you...
    Chrom: I'll...be fine. And please, don't speak of this conversation to anyone. All right?
    Sumia: No-no! Of course not! I would never---
    Chrom: Ha ha! At ease. Sumia. And stop worrying so much! It'll take more than a few battles to bring this soldier to his knees.

  4. "She represents the best of the halidom—the part most worth protecting. She IS peace. But some men would take advantage of that. Men like King Gangrel. The day he understands peace will be the day death gives it to him. ...So perhaps I must be death's agent. Emmeryn would never order him killed, nor would I wish her to." - Chrom, Fire Emblem: Awakening
  5. "Chrom: Robin, if I see someone hurt or in need, I'm going to help them. That's just who I am, and there's no changing it. Or would you rather I'd left you there, face down in the muck?
    Robin: No, of course not. I'm thankful for what you did. I truly am. But it scares me all the same. Chivalry and longevity don't often go hand in hand.
    Chrom: Ha! I wish I had a gold coin for every time I got this lecture.
    " - Chrom and Avatar (male), Fire Emblem: Awakening
  6. "Chrom: You see? And it's not just you, Robin. It's everyone like you. I know going out there exposes me to danger, and I haven't always been careful. But it's a risk I'm willing to take in order to connect with the people. To forge bonds.
    Robin: Bonds? Between who?
    Chrom: You and me. Me and the others. The villagers we've met, the world we've seen... Such bonds are the true strength of this army. Without them, we're lost. Others may disagree, but that's one benefit of leadership: I make the final call.
    " - Chrom and Avatar (male), Fire Emblem: Awakening
  7. "Walhart: First I must know how you defeated me. I have never lacked for strength.
    Chrom: No, you're far stronger than me. Even now I think that's true. ...But you stand alone. My own strength is but a fraction of the strength I wield. My allies hone and temper me. They boost my morale and guide my actions.
