This is self explanatory, You all rate the Character of the Day on a scale 1-10, but this series will have the ratings separated in four categories: Main Game, Postgame, Characterization, and Personal.



Anyway, get voting!

QUOTE
Main Game-This will address how well the character performs and contributes in the main story campaign.

Postgame-This will tackle how much usefulness characters have in the postgame/DLC content. Be it through being an active unit, supporting unit, or how good a parent the character can be for the 2nd gen.

Characterization-This will be how much you liked the character in the supports or story.

Personal- This category will be how how was YOUR experience with the character, like getting RNG Blessed or Screwed, the recruitment chapter they had, etc.

Favourite Marriage Pairing: Should be obvious


Day: 1: Chrom <scores pending>
Day 2: Tactician
Day 3: Lissa
Day 4: Frederick
Day 5: Sully
Day 6: Virion
Day 7: Stahl
Day 8: Vaike
Day9: Starcraft Miriel
Day 10: Sumia

Day 11: Kellam

Day 12: Donnel
Main Game:
Post Game:

Day 12: Donnel

Main Game: 4/10. I'm assuming normal difficulty here, so Donny is definitely usable. I found him to be much better than the likes of Amelia, Ross and Ewan due to Aptitude, and once you get him out of Villager at 10-15 he'll have ridiculously high stats as a tier 1 unit. That means an earlier promotion for this guy, which is cool. Overall great stats for the main game, but requires babying more so than most others. Also, he can't use lances ever after villager, so his weapon ranks are useless.

Post Game: 5/10. Postgame is all about caps, and his caps really aren't good. I believe they're some of the lowest of all the characters. He's usable, but in higher level DLC he's not going to survive long.
However, he makes a great dad for female children who don't get galeforce from their mothers, as he passes down pegasus knight class tree, and he can pass down Aptitude, which is kinda nifty.

Characterization: 5/10. Kind of a male version of Nephenee. I find his optimism endearing, too.

Personal: 7/10. I don't train him often, but when I do, he makes later chapters a joke.

Marriage: Tharja or Sully. Tharja for optimization, Sully if I want galeforce on Kjelle.

Main Game - 6. Donnell has a weird spot. Even in normal mode, he's not exactly all that useful when he gets there, is only marginally useful for a while, gets really useful at one point, and then lets everyone catch up to him if you let the game run on too long. That weapon rank is all screwy for him too. On harder difficulties, getting him to even get a single level up to recruit him becomes a challenge at the best of times. Too much work either way for lots of people.

Postgame - Abstain

Characterization- 2. Another character with little to no personality. The most memorable thing about him is his pot hat. At least Nephy (mentioned by Bobryk above) has some sort of comparison; she looks the part of a badass soldier (who coincidentally lost their pants somewhere) and destroys that expectation the second she opens her mouth. Or does anything off the battlefield.

Personal - 3. AAAAHH. How can you be as useless as archer guy? Seriously.

Marriage- Absstain

How does Donnel marrying Sully give Kjelle Galeforce.

Donnel passes down the pegasus knight class tree to female children. So Kjelle will have the option to second seal into a pegasus knight/dark flier.

I liked Bobryk's joke on Donnel's Personal lol

QUOTE
Day 12: Donnel
Main Game: 3/10 - On harder modes he's worthless without absolute babying and I'm just not motivated enough nor is it worth it from a basic resource standpoint.
Post Game: 5/10 - Sure you can use him in the long-run and he has some solid growths but... you still have to baby him and with that portrait he'll always just be a Donnel
Characterization: 5/10 - Kind of stereotypical and not very deep outside of it. Doesn't really appeal to me.
Personal: 6/10 - no reason to hate him, but definitely not a go-to unit or anything either. he's almost like a bonus character to me... never one of my mains really >>;
Marriage: Too young to marry, N/A

>8U NO! YOU CAN'T MAKE ME G- ok

Main Game: 1/10 Nope. Don't touch him. I wait til post game, when I have lots of people with lots of Rally skills, so he can tank his Paralogue without worry.

Post Game: 8/10 BEAST MODE GO. Seriously, his Aptitude skill cuts down on extra level grinding.

Characterization: 5/10 I haven' had too many supports with him, but I did love his supports with Maribelle.

Personal: 8/10 He's always pretty good for me, makes for a good hero, and his high luck growth lets him take full advantage of Armsthrift.

Marriage: Only pairing I've done with him was Maribelle, and it was pretty damn adorable~

Main Game- 4/10 He's not great, he requires babying badly, he's godawful on harder difficulties. Uh, I guess he's decent for a little bit if you DO train him.

Postgame- 4/10 Aptitude is decent, shame he's not. At least he gives decent skills/classes to his (female) kids?

Characterization- 3/10 He just goes nowhere, and he always wears that bloody pot on his head, which is just stupid.

Personal- 2/10 First time I played, skipped the paralogue text and never recruited him. Maybe it was better that way. Pass down skills only.

Favourite Marriage Pairing: Sully maybe, for galeforce Kjelle.

Main Game- 8/10 Ok. Here me out. I would get him early on, and I would get into battles and fight to level him up to the same levels as my units. He was really strong. I really liked all of his promotions. Keep in mind that this is my first physical copy of a fire emblem game. I would play on Casual Normal. dry.gif

Post-Game- 4/10 I would always battle spotpass characters to make my people really strong. In the end, Donnel got the boot.

Characterization- 4/10 I loved him on the first run, but then the pot got annoying.

Personal- 5/10 I mean, he can be good, but later on sucks.

Favorite marriage pairing: I was only able to get him marry Cherche, and Gerome sucked. The only good thing was the supports. oh well.
Well. This is awkward.

Main Game-10 At the start he required a little babyssitting but he could he could take care of himself pretty quickly.

Postgame-10 Donnel is easily my best unit. It's very rare he doesn't one hit an enemy and even more rare that an enemy could hurt him.

Characterization-10 I loved his farmboy speech patterns and how he was always laying traps for people in supports

Personal- 10 He had a unique recruit requirement (level him up before the end of the battle) which I thought was cool. Over all he was my most reliable unit that wasn't a Lord or the Avatar.

Favourite Marriage Pairing: Lissa. That proposal was the most adorable thing ever.


In case it wasn't obvious Donnel is pretty much my favorite character in Awakening.
