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.
- Speed on the ground
- Speed in the air
- Safe moves
- Powerful attacks
- Easily beatable recovery
- Some space and easily kills by the side
- Useful platforms to combo
- Lacks of central platform
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.
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.
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.
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.
