[edit] Background

Main Article

Ike, as he appears in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, is the leader of the Greil mercenaries is in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Unlike his Fire Emblem counter-part, Marth, Ike is a very slow and clunky character, but his strength is outstanding!

[edit] Role in SSE

Ike first appears when Marth and Meta Knight attempt to destroy a Subspace Bomb the Ancient Minister is carrying, but fail. Ike manages to destroy the Subspace Bomb using Great Aether, causing the Ancient Minister to stumble through the air.

Ike is next seen when he, Marth and Meta Knight chase and battle the giant robot Galleom. After defeat, Galleom jumps down to the ruins, causing the floor to break due to it's sheer weight, where it falls into an underground hall where it fights Pokémon Trainer and Lucas. After defeat, Galleom grabs the two and begins flying upwards with a Subspace Bomb counting down. Lucas manages to free them using PK Thunder, but not knowing how to fly, they begin falling to the ground. Luckily, Meta Knight catches them just before hitting the ground. Meta Knight takes them to where Marth and Ike were.

Ike is next briefly seen before Meta Knight flies up Glacial Peaks, alongside the Ice Climbers to get to the Halberd. Ike is seen again in Subspace, as he joins the other characters to battle Tabuu. But all of the characters, including Ike, are all turned into trophies by Tabuu's Off-Waves. Ike can be used in the final fight against Tabuu if he is found and revived within Subspace.

[edit] Special Attacks

Neutral Special: Eruption

Ike pulls his sword above his head and charges, when done charging or B is let go of he stabs his sword in to the ground where the ground explodes dealing some damage to himself. Like his Aether attack, at one time he is immune to knockback, but not damage itself.

Side Special: Quick Draw

Ike gets into a charging position and when he is done charging or B is let go of he lunges across the field at a very fast speed, the longer it is held the further he will lunge and the stronger the attack is.

Down Special: Counter

This is much like Marth's counter attack, but his is slower than Marth's but reflects back x1.2 damage dealt with a minimum of 10% while Marth's does x1.1 damage dealt with a minimum of 8%.

Up Special: Aether

Ike knocks his opponent into the air, throwing his sword after them, jumps and catches his sword and slams the opponent back to the ground. After he has touched the ground he is shortly immune to knockback.

Final Smash: Great Aether

Ike knocks his opponent into the air, throwing the sword after them like above, jumps and catches the sword then does a number of slashes and a few kicks then slams his opponent into the ground, which on contact makes an explosion knocking the opponent away. While Ike is doing this he is invincible.
