Topping the charts was Lyn, from Fire Emblem Blazing Sword, aka Rekka No Ken. Lyn has long been a fan-favorite and has been asked by fans to be in Super Smash Bros. for some time. No.2: Lucina from Fire Emblem Awakening. Another fan-favorite character, Lucina has made an impact since her introduction and was in Super Smash Bros.in the most recent version.
