25E Chrom

First appearance :
Fire Emblem Awakening (2012 - 3DS)

Chrom is far from being the echo fighter of Roy. He’s more of a mix between many move sets taken from many Fire Emblem characters. This character will shine thanks to his aggressivity and thanks to the power and speed of his moves, which allows him to kill very quickly an opponent.

Pro Tips

Best moves

  • JAB

    This is one of his best tools in neutral game, because it is a very fast attack, and you are not taking a lot of risks while doing it. Moreover, it allows to kill if you perform a back air right after. It is also a very good move to protect the stage’s ledge.

  • FORWARD AIR

    His Forward Air is also a very good tool in neutral game and looks a little bit like Lucina’s one. It has a good range, it is very safe, and this is an excellent combo tool too.

  • DOWN TILT

    This attack is very fast and covers a great distance close to the ground and it is handy especially against small characters. An excellent tool in tech chase situation for example, situation where Chrom is excellent due to his speed which allows him to cover every option of his opponent.

  • UP B

    This is one of the best out of shield option of the whole game and allows Chrom to get out of a lot of tough situations. Moreover, it has a great range, can kill on a platform or brings an opponent in the bottom blast zone with you, which is excellent when you have one more life than your opponent. Despite this, it is still a risky attack, so you need to use it with caution.

    Last tips

    The tr(d)ouble Jump

    Chrom’s recovery being very easily to beat, do not waste your double jump and keep it for as long as possible to use it if you need it. Do not forget that his double jump and his air dodge are his best resources to come back on the stage, his up B being easy to beat and letting you only recover vertically.

    Falchion punch

    Learn to know how to use the Up B. This attack is very susceptible to be edge guarded and is susceptible to be beaten by a lot of things, as counters if you use it too high. This is why you will need to learn how to use it correctly because if you use it at the right high, you won’t probably be hit by any counter which can clearly save your life.

    Look out : Mirage

    Even if Chrom is a rush down character who will pass his time pressuring his opponent while enjoying his generous hitboxes and his great frame data, it is important to slow down the rhythm of the game in some cases. In front of an opponent who adapts and plays more patiently while punishing your approaches, the game can quickly become unfair. Approach serenely and slowly in some phases can be very beneficial !

    In a nutshell

    For Chrom, the game’s pleasure will come from his multiple advantages, which gives you the feeling of being free to express your own way of playing the game. You can also feel a true sensation of fluidity and liberty while controlling this character. It makes his combo game even more enjoyable and this is a character whose mastery will help you to progress in Smash in a general way, especially in terms of attack and recovery !
