Battle quotes

Against Marth in Chapter 4

Chrom: Who is your father?
Marth: I've said enough for one day, sir.
Chrom: Hmph. Is that how it is? Lissa owes you her life, and for that you have my gratitude. But within these walls, I represent the East-Khan and the interests of Ylisse. I can't promise to stay my blade, but I vow not to shame you.
Marth: Heh, never expected such youthful arrogance... We shall see who shames who!

Against Gangrel in Chapter 11

Gangrel: Come, princeling! I've sharpened my sword just for you!
Chrom: My sister wished for our people to know peace, Gangrel. But as long as you draw breath, it can never come. For Ylisse!

Against Cervantes in Chapter 16

Chrom: Fiend! You invade kingdoms and bully them into submission... Why? What does it achieve?
Cervantes: Do you even need ask, whelp? Emperor Walhart is destined to rule this world, plain and simple.
Chrom: Yes, but to what end?
Cervantes: Irrelevant! Walhart's mind is beyond the grasp of common men.
Chrom: So you don't even know what you're fighting for?
Cervantes: I tend to my own beard, boy. A soldier does not question orders. But he gives his loyalty—and maybe his life—in the service of greater men.
Chrom: Great men? Is living only to conquer so great an ambition?
Cervantes: What could be greater! Once I had dreams myself of commanding a nation... But Walhart? Aye, he dreams bigger. He would rule the entire world! Mine is nothing compared to the moxie of the Conqueror. I am but a single tiny hair on the beard of a flea in his great moustache! Have you not tasted the thrill of being part of something bigger than yourself?
Chrom: Not at the price of inflicting cruelty and suffering, no.
Cervantes: Hmph. Then we have nothing more to discuss. Prepare to learn the meaning of the word "beard." ...Fear, I mean fear!

Against Pheros in Chapter 17

Pheros: Then you'd be Prince Chrom... Once, I followed your exalted sister, you know. Made the pilgrimage all the way to Ylisstol, just to hear her speak. I, too, grew up worshipping Naga and the Earth Mother.
Chrom: ...Yet you abandoned your faith.
Pheros: I have no use for invisible spirits any longer. I serve a god among men now. Emperor Walhart will do what no religion ever could—unite all people.
Chrom: Your naivete betrays you. Think about it: who willingly follows a tyrant?
Pheros: Thinking plays no part in it. In words and deeds, a great leader takes hold of the heart, not the mind. I remember your sister possessing that selfsame gift for inspiring others. Doubtless many still cling to the power of her poetry. But I have found a greater voice...
Chrom: My sister believed we all desire the same thing: peace. If Walhart holds such promise, why must he use violence to unite the people?
Pheros: Now who is being naive, good Prince? Sometimes those who will not walk must be dragged along or pushed aside. So raise your sword, Chrom of Ylisse, and prepare to be pushed aside.

Against Yen'fay in Chapter 18

Chrom: General Yen'fay.
Yen'fay: Aye, that is my name. What would you have of me, Ylissean?
Chrom: I would ask why a famed swordmaster would sell his honor to Walhart.
Yen'fay: ...That is not your concern.
Chrom: ...Are you truly your sister's brother? She is a principled woman. Even knowing Walhart's strength, she has fought on valiantly. Are you so deluded as to genuinely consider her your enemy? Or are you simply afraid of your master?
Yen'fay: Afraid...? Yes, fear plays it's part, that I cannot deny.
Chrom: ...You admit it, then? You are craven!
Yen'fay: I did not say it was fear for my life. That my reasons exist is not cause to explain them all to strangers.
Chrom: If there's honor left in you, say it now. You could still join us...
Yen'fay: The bones have been thrown, lad. All that remains is to see where they fall.
Chrom: So be it.

Against Walhart in Chapter 19

Walhart: Why do you resist me, little Prince?
Chrom: You enslave the weak and kill the able. You are the enemy of peace.
Walhart: I would end the reign of the gods, and you object on moral grounds?! Blood is spilled in any new birth, Prince. And in many a just cause, as you know...
Chrom: There is no justification for what you've done.
Walhart: By whose laws do you judge me? Yours? Your sister's? The gods'?
Chrom: You cannot—
Walhart: Look at you! Are you not ashamed? Your mind is filled with nothing but secondhand beliefs. You dance upon the stage of your gods like a mindless puppet! THAT is what I reject: being a slave to tradition, to obligation. The old ways. Damn the gods! Damn their fates and their destinies! I will have true freedom! Any man who offers less is my enemy.
Chrom: Enough! I don't require every detail of your twisted philosophy. You're a villain and a murderer, plain and simple. And I am the justice you deserve.
Walhart: Ha ha ha! Better, Prince. Much better! Be not an agent of someone else's justice, but justice itself! Now, let us fight as two great men, freed of their gods. I grant any challenger the chance to test his will against my own... But you, too, shall be found wanting!

Against Walhart in Chapter 20

Chrom: Walhart!
Walhart: Prince...
Chrom: Will you surrender?
Walhart: Don't waste my time with questions you know the answers to, boy.
Chrom: It did not have to be this way... You believe in mankind's strength...So did my sister. You believe that we are masters of our destinies... So do I. You could have joined with us.
Walhart: ME, JOIN YOU?! Does a pegasus join with the flea on its back? A dragon, with a cow it eats?! You forget your place, BOY. I am the Conqueror! I will unite the world!
Chrom: No! ...I will. And not by forcing all the people to choose the sword or the knee. Peace will only come by stoking people's hearts...not their fear.
Walhart: You think that's what you've done? What your sister did before you? No, she shouted some nonsense and leapt off a rock! Such weakness!
Chrom: Wrong. Not weakness-strength. That one act lives on, and WILL live on, longer than all of your conquests...
Walhart: And longer than you will... Come then, flea, and die for your peace!
Chrom: Emm, I tried...

Against Aversa in Chapter 22

Chrom: A final question, witch, before you die—
Aversa: Oh? Then perhaps one final answer, boy, before you fail...
Chrom: Who is Validar? Why do you follow him?
Aversa: He is... a father to me.
Chrom: ...What?! But... You're Avatar's sister?!
Aversa: Aha ha ha! You damn fool! Not literally... But he did raise me as if I were his own. Taught me everything... I was a poor orphaned wretch with dirt for food, yet Master Validar took me in. He provided when others would have watched me starve. I would never presume that he loves me... But he is everything I know of love. I would gladly die at his command.
Chrom: Even knowing his actions will destroy the world?
Aversa: But he IS the world - and it is YOU that would destroy HIM! From where I stand, YOU are the only aggressor here. How Robin lives with the shame, attacking his/her own blood...
Chrom: Robin sees beyond himself/herself, to the larger reality. One person's life means nothing in the shadow of millions.
Aversa: A sweet sentiment, and easily spoken when you bear no love for the one... But more difficult when the sacrifice was your exalted sister, wasn't it? I don't expect you to see the world through my eyes, Prince. But I won't pretend to understand how things look through yours.
Chrom: ...Then I suppose there is nothing more to say.
Aversa: No, I suppose there isn't.

Against Validar in Chapter 23

Validar: Heh ha, are you so eager to meet your end, little Prince? You WILL die here. Your future is already written.
Chrom: I tell you again: I make my own future. And it's one you'll not live to see!

Against Grima in Grima

Chrom: I come to end you, Grima!
Grima: ...ARROGANT MORTAL... I AM THE END!

Endgame: Grima quotes

The war is ended, my friends. Never again will the fell dragon trouble our world. I owe you all far more than words can ever repay. Especially Robin, who gave [himself/herself] to save us all. To save all the worlds to come. [...] Don't cry, Lissa. We'll see [him/her] again. I'm sure of it. Remember what Naga said? That Robin would survive if our ties were strong enough. This isn't over. I believe Robin is out there...somewhere... And I'll find [him/her]. If it takes me the rest of my days, I'll find [him/her]...
— Chrom, if Robin sacrifices him/herself to kill Grima.
He may rise to threaten the world again, but he'll never destroy it. One such as I, or the first exalt before me... One will rise up to challenge him. Shepherds... Friends... The war is over! The fell dragon's era of chaos has been averted! The Risen will trouble our world no more! You all know that I'm a simple man, never one for speeches or song... But you need to know this... All that is good and brave in me and what I have done is because of you! We have weathered a sea of horror, but we did it as one. And, finally, we have come to the inviting shores of a bright future. Together.
— Chrom, if Chrom lands the final blow on Grima.

Against Eirika in Champions of Yore 1

Eirika: So you really are brigands. Why did you lie to me, sir? I will not stand for being deceived!
Chrom: How can I deceive you if I can't even get a word in edgewise? ... But if it's a fight you want, I can deliver in spades.

Against Eirika in Champions of Yore 3

Chrom: Let me guess, you won't be deceived by the likes of brigands?
Eirika: You're very perceptive. Now come at me!

Against Sigurd in Lost Bloodlines 1

Sigurd: Are you the enemy commander? You can still leave here with your lives.
Chrom: I appreciate the offer, but would it shock you if I refused?

Against King Marth in Lost Bloodlines 2

King Marth: Are you the leader of the visiting forces?
Chrom: Please don't ask me to yield. I have no choice but to defeat you.
King Marth: Then it seems neither of us has a choice. Draw, sir!

Against Sigurd in Lost Bloodlines 3

Sigurd: Lead your army hence. I will not ask again.
Chrom: You speak as though you're the only man with a purpose. Think again!

Against King Marth in Lost Bloodlines 3

King Marth: The enemy commander, I presume? Leave. You do not belong here.
Chrom: Perhaps not. But I have my reasons to fight!

Against Ike in Smash Brethren 1

Ike: You're the commander of these otherworldly forces? You seem like a man who could be reasoned with.
Chrom: I would be, but I'm not here to reason—I'm here to fight. Shall we?

Against Ike in Smash Brethren 3

Chrom: We will defeat you and restore peace to this world!
Ike: I believe that's my line. Come on!

Against Pr. Marth in Rogues & Redeemers 2

Pr. Marth: Are you the commander of the otherworldly forces?
Chrom: Yes. But don't try and dissuade me. We must see our task here through.
Pr. Marth: You'll have to win that right!

Against Pr. Marth in Rogues & Redeemers 3

Chrom: You're formidable opponents, all of you.
Pr. Marth: As are you. So why not spare us this violence and return to your world?
Chrom: Sorry, but that cannot happen until we've defeated every last one of you.

DLC battle quotes

Why in the seven hells am I fighting for someone else's nest egg? I don't think I've had a less inspiring cause in my whole life. Well, as long as there are enemies here, I may as well use them for training.
— Chrom, in The Golden Gaffe.
Shooing miscreants away from crops? Am I back in my early Shepherd days? Still, I've vowed to help people in need, so help I shall!
— Chrom, in EXPonential Growth.
You said you gave your lives in a battle on which the future hung in the balance. Then you should understand why I have to defeat you here... I'm sorry, friend, but I can ill afford to share your fate!
— Chrom, in Infinite Regalia.
I wish I had the power to give you back your lives... But now that you're Risen, all I can do is fell you again—hopefully for good. Forgive me for not reaching you sooner...
— Chrom, in Death's Embrace.
A tremor, followed by a surge of Risen... It's just like what happened in Ylisse. And that was just the beginning of all our troubles... I'm not about to let the same or worse happen here!
— Chrom, in Five-Anna Firefight.
Who knew we had a roster? And from the sounds of it, quite a scandalous one... Well, my army's reputation is MY reputation. I have to get that book back!
— Chrom, in Roster Rescue.
It feels a bit strange to get the celebrity treatment... But I'll admit—after a long march, it's nice to be pampered. The least we can do in return is live up to the gossip and rout these fiends!
— Chrom, in Summer Scramble.
You Risen stick out like sore thumbs in a place as tranquil as this. Seriously, can we not even take a bath in peace? Oh well. A Shepherd's got to do what a Shepherd's got to do!
— Chrom, in Hot-Spring Scramble.
