Appearance(s)

When I fight for my father, no matter how terrible the foe, or how powerful... I know that I have no choice. I simply cannot lose.
— Lucina, to the male Robin

Lucina (pronounced /luˈsinə/[key][1]; Japanese: ルキナ Lucina) is a princess of Ylisse, the daughter of Prince Chrom and a distant descendant of the legendary Hero-King Marth. After her world fell to ruin at the hands of the Fell Dragon Grima in the future, she travelled back in time to save her father's life and avert the disastrous future whence she came. For a time she cloaked her identity as a traveller from the future under the guise of a mysterious warrior known only to others as Marth, taking the name from her famous ancestor, but later discarded this guise when she revealed her true nature to Chrom and joined his army, assisting him in conflicts with the Valmese Empire and the Grimleal.

Lucina is one of three protagonists of Fire Emblem Awakening, alongside Chrom and Robin. She is also a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U and in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, representing the Fire Emblem series.

Biography

Childhood and a bad future

 
Lucina as a baby, with her parents.

Lucina was born two years after Chrom's defeat of King Gangrel of Plegia; like her father, she bore the Brand of Naga which marked her as a worthy heir to the Ylissean bloodline, with her Brand located in the iris of her left eye. It is uncertain how many years she had with the Chrom of her timeline still living; she once described to the main-timeline Chrom how she and her timeline's Chrom had a close relationship where he often shared with her little secrets.[2] Nonetheless, this came to an end with Chrom's demise at the Dragon's Table, the events of which she heard only through rumors,[3] and the subsequent resurrection of Grima.

Over the course of over a decade, humanity and the rest of the world fell to Grima and his hordes of Risen, and Lucina worked with the children of Chrom's allies to fight back and protect other people. Lucina adopted the name of Marth as a pseudonym, hoping it would grant her the strength of her legendary ancestor to use to protect people, and took to wielding Falchion.[4] During this time she and her friends enacted a plan to try and restore the Fire Emblem in a bid to use its power against Grima, only to be unable to find the last of its gemstones at all;[5] as a result, the Awakening they could perform was only a partial one which restored a modicum of power to Falchion, transforming it into the Parallel Falchion.[6] As a last recourse, she and her friends conferred with Naga and had her enact a ritual to send them back in time to prevent Grima's rise to power in the first place. In preparation for her appearance in the past, she put on a mask given to her by one of her companions, Gerome, which would obscure her identity.[7] During their journey through time, however, she was separated from her eleven companions.[8]

As "Marth"

 
"Marth" assists Chrom and Robin in protecting Emmeryn.

Lucina arrived in the past shortly after Chrom's first meeting with Robin, around the same time the first Risen appeared in an attack west of Ylisstol. She saved Lissa from a Risen's blade and assisted in eradicating this first wave, and when confronted by Chrom she introduced herself only as Marth. She gave them a cryptic warning of how more Risen would come, then departed. Her first destination in the past was Basilio's castle in Regna Ferox, where Basilio let her battle against his champion, Lon'qu, whom she easily defeated once he noticed her true gender. Again introducing herself as Marth, Basilio took her on as his new champion for the upcoming tournament; Lucina agreed, intending to try and locate the Feroxi gemstone and to take the opportunity to test her strength against Chrom.[6] Soon after, the khan regnant tournament began in the Arena Ferox, and "Marth" led a band of Feroxi warriors against Chrom and the Shepherds, the rival khan Flavia's champion. Chrom prevailed in the tournament, winning Flavia's support for the Ylissean defense effort, and Lucina disappeared again.

Still under the "Marth" guise, Lucina soon reappeared in Ylisstol following the beginning of Ylisse's war with Plegia, sneaking into the castle grounds through a wall accidentally broken by Chrom some time earlier.[9] She sought to prevent Emmeryn's assassination and Chrom from sustaining a severe wound from an assassin's blade, both events contributing to her disastrous future, but after slaying one assassin her mask was broken by a second assailant, revealing to Chrom and Robin that she was in fact a woman. Still calling herself Marth despite the demasking, she helped defend Emmeryn while Chrom focused on eliminating their leader, Validar. She disappeared again after the battle, resurfacing briefly later on after Emmeryn's suicide at the Plegian capital, lamenting her failure to change fate.

With Chrom

 
Lucina's left eye, revealing her Brand.

For the next two years after Emmeryn's death, Lucina did not appear again throughout the end of the Plegian war or Chrom's reconstruction efforts. She resurfaced in the aftermath of Chrom's diplomatic meeting with the new Plegian king Validar on the Carrion Isle, defending him from the sudden appearance of a Risen assassin but accidentally calling him "Father". Afterward she revealed her true identity as Chrom's daughter, properly reuniting with him and with her initially-disbelieving mother. She gave Chrom and company a brief explanation of her origins from a Grima-ruled timeline and formally joined Chrom's party, seeking to prevent Grima's resurrection by aiding Chrom in the Valmese war and beyond. She also told Chrom of her eleven lost companions and how they may likely be found throughout the world.

Lucina's main contribution to the Valmese war arc came following the Ylisse/Ferox victory at Fort Steiger. In response to the castle being surrounded by the emperor Walhart's legions, Basilio resolved to lead a legion to distract him to allow Chrom's escape, only to be stopped by Lucina. Lucina revealed that in her timeline, this mission is what killed Basilio and attempted to dissuade him from going. Though she failed, her words convinced Flavia to go with him and ensured Basilio would be more cautious in battle, although Chrom's army was later informed that he had died anyway.

Following the Valmese war, Lucina accompanied Chrom to meet with Validar again in the Plegian capital, on the promise of receiving the final gemstone for the Fire Emblem. Before attacking them, Validar referred to Lucina as an interloper, revealing his knowledge of her otherworldly origins, and in the battle's aftermath Lucina bore witness to Robin snatching the Emblem from Chrom's hands under Validar's control. This event confirmed for her the suspicion that in her timeline, it was Robin who killed Chrom, doing so at Validar's mercy. To protect Chrom's life she resolved to execute Robin, only to be stopped by Chrom himself, who reaffirmed his utmost confidence in Robin. She accompanied them in the battle to stop Grima's revival at the Dragon's Table, only to witness Robin indeed strike down Chrom under Validar's influence. Though she initially believed it to be real, she was soon proven wrong with the reappearance of Basilio, who confirmed everything to be a ruse orchestrated by Robin. With Chrom still alive, she again aided them in fighting off Validar and the Grimleal one final time, and bore witness to the reappearance of Grima, in the form of her timeline's Robin, and his resurrection of his full dragon body.

Having fled the Table with Chrom and his army as it collapsed under Grima's revival, Lucina travelled with them to Mount Prism to allow Chrom to perform the full Awakening. She accompanied Chrom and Robin in the final battle against Grima. If unmarried, she goes to Ylisstol one final time, and whispers to her infant self that she will live a better life than she did, before disappearing, leaving no trace of what happens to her.

The Future Past

 
The alternate-timeline Lucina, victorious over Grima.

Yet another alternate-timeline Lucina, along with her friends, was the subject of a rescue effort by the main-timeline Chrom and the Shepherds. In their reality, similar to the one the main Lucina came from, Grima's conquest of humanity was nearing completion, with Risen flooding the land and murdering all who crossed their path. Lucina and her allies worked to save the world from Grima, and enacted a plan to find the Fire Emblem and its gemstones for use in an Awakening. Her eleven friends split off into three groups - Cynthia, Kjelle, Nah and Noire in the first, Owain, Brady, Inigo and Yarne in the second, and Gerome, Severa and Laurent in the third - to bring them back, while Lucina remained in Ylisstol with Tiki. While the eleven were gone, Ylisstol was invaded by a mysterious assailant, later revealed to be Grima himself, who slew Tiki while Lucina could do nothing but watch.

Gerome, Severa and Laurent soon returned to Ylisstol with the Emblem itself and one gemstone, but the four were accosted by the appearance of Grima himself and a legion of Grimleal. The four were severely wounded by a blast from Grima and resolved to die fighting despite their slim odds, but were saved by the appearance of the main-timeline Chrom and his allies, sent to aid them by Naga herself. With Chrom's aid the four survived and Grima was subdued, but Chrom and his allies were warped back to their own reality seemingly by Grima himself, an act which turned out to be an effort of defiance by Robin, Grima's host, to prevent Chrom from dying at their hand yet again.

Grima prepared to attack again, but was stopped by the arrival of Lucina's remaining eight allies and the last four gemstones, completing the Emblem. Although Grima claimed Naga to be dead and the Awakening to be impossible to complete, Tiki's spirit appeared before them to reveal her ascension to the position of the new Naga and that, with her corpse lying below, the Awakening was doable in Ylisstol itself. Lucina performed the Awakening with Tiki and gained her power, and while Grima struggled to overcome Robin's attempts to hold him back, Lucina struck Grima down and put him back to sleep, bringing an end to humanity's suffering in this timeline. Afterward, this Lucina became the new exalt of Ylisse to lead the survivors of humanity in rebuilding.

Fire Emblem Awakening

Role

Lucina joins the player's party under her true identity at the end of Chapter 13. Though a Lord character, Lucina's defeat is not a Game Over, and instead she permanently retreats in Classic Mode or temporarily retreats in Casual Mode.

Lucina makes two non-playable appearances before being recruited, both as her Marth guise: the first is as the boss of Chapter 4, and the second is as a NPC in Chapter 6 assisting in Emmeryn's defense; in both cases she has set stats and skills which are not affected at all if Chrom is already married at this point. An alternate-timeline NPC Lucina also appears in the DLC episode The Future Past 3: this Lucina's stats and skills are affected by those of her parents, and her death will result in a Game Over.

Fire Emblem Heroes

Role

There are five different variations of Lucina available to Heroes, all of which are tied to her storyline appearance in Awakening. The normal variation of Lucina is one of the characters available to be summoned by players from the game's initial launch. A spring-themed variation of Lucina was made available between the period of March 30, 2017 through April 14, 2017 as part of the summoning event surrounding the launch of the Spring Festival update, the update where this variation was added to the game. A variation based on her masked "Marth" guise was made available as a reward for the first Tempest Trials event, "Dark Clouds over Awakening", held between June 8, 2017 to June 22, 2017; this variant was later redistributed in the first edition of Tempest Trials Mini, "To Die on the Battlefield, held between September 8, 2017 through September 15, 2017, then again in the seventh edition of Tempest Trials, "A Gift of Peace", held between December 26, 2017 through January 9, 2018, and again in the fourth edition of Tempest Trials+, "Sweet Dreams", held between July 15, 2018 through July 25, 2018. A brave variation of Lucina was made available on August 31, 2017 as part of the summoning event surrounding the launch of the Brave Heroes update. A fifth variation, termed "Glorious Archer", is the game's ninth Legendary Hero, first made available to players on July 31, 2018; this variation of Lucina is the first character in the game that wields a blue bow.

The multiple variations of Lucina are notable for having multiple different English-language voice actors between them. Lucina's normal variation is voiced by Laura Bailey, reprising her role from Awakening and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Alexis Tipton voiced Lucina's later variations and reprised the role in Warriors; this may imply that the role was formally recast between the recording sessions for the game launch and the Spring Festival update.

Personality and character

Lucina possesses a strong sense of justice and believes that saving the world is her mission and burden, and that failure is not an option. She greatly respects and adores Chrom, and as a result of his death in her bad future, she is constantly worried about his safety and sees his survival as paramount to the fate of the world. She has a weird sense of humour and, as indicated by her interactions with her mother, her understanding of non-military fashions is lacking.[10]

Endings

Lucina, Foreseer (single ending)
Lucina disappeared after whispering these words to her infant self: "Yours will be a happy future." Did she journey to another land or back to her own time? ...No one knows for certain.

Robin, High Deliverer & Lucina, Foreseer
Many wrote of Robin's legendary exploits, but accounts of his origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone—he loved his wife, Lucina, above all else.

Owain, Chosen One & Lucina, Foreseer
Owain set off on a lengthy quest with Lucina to "stay his sword hand." Did they simply journey to another land, or did they return to their own time? None know for certain.

Inigo, Flower Picker & Lucina, Foreseer
Inigo traveled the world, ever ready with a smile or a solution when trouble started to brew. Lucina journeyed with him, and their home of the moment was always brimming with joy and laughter.

Brady, Daunting Priest & Lucina, Foreseer
Brady left the priesthood to become the world's scariest violinist. Every new rondo he composed passed first through the ears of his beloved wife and critic, Lucina.

Gerome, Masked Rider & Lucina, Foreseer
Gerome and Lucina were married and settled down near Wyvern Valley. While her husband never minced the few words he had to say, Lucina understood, and the two built a happy life.

Morgan, Gift from Afar & Lucina, Foreseer
Morgan's memory never returned, but he didn't seem to miss it much and lived happily with Lucina. Later, scholars would speculate he had come from a different future than the other children.

Yarne, Timid Taguel & Lucina, Foreseer
Yarne tried desperately to find a safe haven after the battles were done, but even that journey was fraught with danger—especially since Lucina was quick to dash to the rescue of every stranger.

Laurent, The Elucidator & Lucina, Foreseer
Longing to meet his mother's intellectual standards, Laurent took his wife on an expedition around the world. Lucina was reunited with Tiki and Naga and thanked them for helping to usher in peace.

Other appearances

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 female playable characters: the Lucina Hero-King Series, which allows them to dress as Lucina as part of a collaborative promotion. Accompanying the costume is a pair of weapons: the Parallel Falchion and Fire Emblem (Japanese: 裏剣ファルシオンI Hidden Sword Falchion I) as a shield and single-handed sword combo, and Nidhogg (Japanese: 蛇弓ニーズヘッグI Serpent Bow Nidhogg I) as a bow weapon.[11]

Super Smash Bros. series

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

This article or section is a short summary of Lucina.
SmashWiki features a more in-depth article.

Revealed in a trailer on July 14th, 2014 alongside Robin and Captain Falcon, Lucina will be a newcomer playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. She will be a straight clone of her ancestor Marth, featuring mostly identical attacks and motions with variations in her parameters; the main difference is that Lucina's sword's power will be distributed equally along the blade, whereas Marth's sword is most powerful at its tip. Director Masahiro Sakurai confirmed in his column in Famitsu that Lucina was originally planned simply as an alternative costume for Marth, but as development progressed, her attributes were altered to diverge from Marth's, leading to Sakurai's decision to turn her into her own separate character.[12]

Special moves

All of Lucina's special moves are the same as Marth's, including their name. They are as follows:

  • Shield Breaker (Japanese: シールドブレイカー Shield Breaker): Lucina's standard special move. A lunging stab which can be charged up for a short period of time to strengthen the blow; at full strength, it can pierce shields.
  • Dancing Blade (Japanese: マーベラスコンビネーション Marvelous Combination): Lucina's side special move. A combination of four sword strikes, which attack in different directions depending on which way the analog stick is pointed for each swipe.
  • Dolphin Slash (Japanese: ドルフィンスラッシュ Dolphin Slash): Lucina's up special move. A sweeping upward strike which carries Lucina into the air; can be used as a recovery move to try and climb back onto a stage if Lucina falls off.
  • Counter (Japanese: カウンター Counter): Lucina's down special move. Lucina assumes a brief defensive stance and will retaliate if struck in this stance.
  • Critical Hit (Japanese: 必殺の一撃 Critical Hit): Lucina's Final Smash. A single rapid strike across the battle field which deals immense damage to the foe if it hits, accompanied by a rapidly depleting Fire Emblem-style HP bar.

   NA: Chrom's daughter and the future Princess of Ylisse. When she arrives from a doomed future seeking to prevent it from ever happening, she goes by the name Marth before her identity is revealed. She fights much like her adopted namesake, but more than just the tip of her sword is powerful.

Palutena's Guidance

Pit: That lady's moves are awfully similar to Marth's.
Palutena: That's Lucina. She used to introduce herself as Marth, so certain similarities seem inevitable.
Pit: What? She stole someone else's identity?
Viridi: Well, it wasn't quite like that.
Palutena: Marth had become a legend by her time—the Hero King. So Lucina took that name to bolster the morale of her own army. Think of it as a symbol of hope in the depths of despair.
Pit: That's pretty deep.
Viridi: You can't tell by looking at her, but I hear she's got a great sense of humor.
Pit: I'll try cracking a few jokes and see if that softens her up.
Palutena: The tip of her blade doesn't deal as much damage as Marth's. But her attacks are more balanced, even if they're not tremendously powerful.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

This article or section is a short summary of Lucina.
SmashWiki features a more in-depth article.

Lucina returns in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, remaining a clone of Marth.

The Palutena's Guidance regarding Lucina is reused from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. However there is no Codec Conversation about her as it reuses the dialogue from Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which was released four years before Fire Emblem Awakening.

Lucina changes from the previous game were identical to Marth's, however since she lacked the tipper mechanic she is considered to be buffed overall. The increase in her speed and the game's mechanics greatly benefit her, and she is considered to be a very strong character in the current metagame.

In the World of Light, Lucina was vaporized alongside all the other characters except Kirby. She cannot be rescued until the player first defeats Galeem, where the player can then traverse through Dharkon's realm.

Special moves
  • Shield Breaker (Japanese: シールドブレイカー Shield Breaker): Lucina's chargeable standard special move. Lucina lunges forwards and stabs the opponent, dealing more damage when fully charged. The move also deals signficant shield damage and can break shields at full charge. A new addition to the move is the ability to angle the move upwards or downwards, which is also retained in Marth's variation.
  • Dancing Blade (Japanese: マーベラスコンビネーション Marvelous Combination): Lucina's side special move. A combination of four sword strikes, which attack in different directions depending on which way the analog stick is pointed for each swipe. The move is significantly faster than its previous incarnations, making it easier to perform all four moves; this also holds true for Marth, Roy, and Chrom's variations.
  • Dolphin Slash (Japanese: ドルフィンスラッシュ Dolphin Slash): Lucina's up special move. A sweeping upward strike which carries Lucina into the air; can be used as a recovery move to try and climb back onto a stage if Lucina falls off. It grants great vertical distance but little horizontal distance.
  • Counter (Japanese: カウンター Counter): Lucina's down special move. Lucina assumes a brief defensive stance and will retaliate if struck in this stance, cancelling the foe's attack and dealing more damage to the foe than Lucina would have sustained. It's high ending lag makes it rather punishable when whiffed.
  • Critical Hit (Japanese: 必殺の一撃 Critical Hit): Lucina's Final Smash. A single rapid strike across the battle field which deals immense damage to the foe if it hits, accompanied by a rapidly depleting Fire Emblem-style HP bar. This move can one-hit KO opponents in normal circumstances.
Spirit data

Lucina's fighter spirit can be obtained either by completing her route in classic mode or buying it in the vault.

Fire Emblem Series
Lucina
 

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.

Lucina is featured as a bonus playable character in the Nintendo 3DS title Code Name: S.T.E.A.M..[13] Her appearance is triggered by using an amiibo at a specific point during gameplay. As is standard for the Fire Emblem series, but atypical of characters in Code Name: S.T.E.A.M., Lucina cannot be brought back into a battle after being defeated; instead, the player must use her amiibo again in order to use her again.

Project X Zone 2

Lucina appears, alongside Chrom, Tiki, and Fiora from Xenoblade Chronicles, as a special guest from Nintendo in Project X Zone 2. She and Chrom first appear the chapter "Paralogue 5: The Fire Emblem", where they, along with Valkyrie, Yuri Lowell, and Flynn Scifo have to protect Tiki from the Risen and Kamuz's troops. The map is based on Divine Dragon Grounds from Fire Emblem Awakening.

She and Chrom appear to join the team permanently during "Chapter 20: The Power to Change Fate". After the player reaches the third room in the Great Tree, Kamuz reappears from a Fracture with a group of Risen and his own troops after a few rounds have passed. Chrom and Lucina follow shortly after, appearing next to the third stranded pod. They rescue the allies stuck in the pod, then join the team to fight Kamuz and seal the Summoning Gate.

Bio

Chrom's daughter.

She traveled back in time from a ravaged future in which the revived Fell Dragon Grima has destroyed the world. In Lucina's world, Chrom was betrayed and slain by one of his comrades, and she intends to find the one responsible and prevent it from happening again.

In order to avoid becoming entangled in history, she started out wearing a mask and using the name of the ancient hero "Marth." However, Chrom gradually picked up on the truth about her.

Her strength of will is a great asset to her, though at times it manifests as pure stubbornness. She has a fierce devotion to refining her sword technique through daily practice, and like her father tends to wreak havoc on her surroundings in pursuit of this. She maintains a serious demeanor most of the time, yet on occasion the strangest things will prompt a laugh. She also has a fairly unique sense of fashion. While she views Chrom as someone to protect, she also reveres him as her beloved father and acts as a dutiful daughter to him.

Miitomo

As part of a collaboration coinciding with the release of Fire Emblem Heroes, two items based on Lucina's clothing were made available in Miitomo. The first, the mask she wears in her "Marth" guise, was distributed to all Miitomo users after the successful Global Retweet Event hit 10,000 retweets. The second, her outfit, was available for purchase in the Miitomo Shop from February 3rd to March 2nd, 2017.[14]

  • Lucina has access to the highest potential number of optional classes of any unit in Awakening if a female Robin is her mother: 34, or 35 including the Bride. This is two higher than any other potential female daughter of Robin's as Lucina has exclusive access to the Lord and Great Lord classes in addition to the full set of normal classes provided by Robin.
  • While Lucina's in-game 3D model in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U has the Brand of Naga in her eye, her official render does not.
  • In Template:FEH, Lucina's "Marth: Enigmatic Blade" variant has the highest amount of potential merges of any hero not available through summoning without the use of Heroic Grails, currently maxing at +8.
