A series of tactical role-playing games (TRPG) developed by Intelligent Systems. Having been released only in Japan, the series achieved minimal popularity if any at all outside the country where it originated. However, due to the release of the Fire Emblem characters Marth (Fire Emblem 1) and Roy (Fire Emblem 6) with the game Super Smash Bros. Melee, the series experienced surprising demand from the USA and Europe. As a result, Fire Emblem 7: Rekka no Ken was released in the United States as a GBA title simply named Fire Emblem. As of the writing, this release has been followed up by Fire Emblem 8: Seima no Kouseki. It is well known for the unique feature that characters who die remain dead for the entire adventure and cannot possibly be revived (with some rare exceptions in earlier games).
No, fools. Marth and Roy are not in the next game. Shut up.

A series of strategy video games often with characters who have jobs. There is often one Lord, and if that Lord dies, then it's game over. If anyone else dies, you can restart the game or continue on, but it's best to have a large army IMHO. The current (from the first one to Brawl) Fire Emblem characters which are in the games are Roy, Marth, and Ike. The Assist Trophies that has a Fire Emblem character is only Lyn.
God dammit! I can't get Joshua in Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones! So hard...

A series of Strategy/Role Play Games made and produced in Japan. Currently consists of a series of 9 games. For now, only one game, FE7, Rekka No Ken, has made it to US shores. After FE7's great fame with American gamers, it is likely that FE8, Seima no Kouseki and FE9, for the Game Cube, will come to the USofA in the future.
Keep praying, maybe you'll get Fire Emblem for Christmas!
