It's the down B for me as well. I just think a drop down menu that's also RNG gives his gameplay a very clunky feel, and the Crit smash attacks just seem unnecessary. Fire Emblem also has critical hits in its games, and you don't see that reflected in the gameplay.I think Hero is fun to mess around with but I'm terrible at actually using his down special effectively. I usually just fight the AI and even that is tough for me to make use out of it. Still, I think it is a fun idea. I did really enjoy Dragon Quest 8 and 11 but I never cared for silent protagonists in general so Hero never really interested me much. Jade would have been awesome though. That's one reason I would much rather have Magus or Frog than Crono even if they are much less likely. I do like Joker as far as silent protagonists go but I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't have been happier with Makoto.
And lol, yeah, as cool as Makoto's motorcycle Persona is, in general I wouldn't expect side characters to get in over protagonists - especially for JRPG's. Pyra over Rex was a very special case I doubt we'll see a repeat of. The only exception I could see to this atm is Kain or Vivi from Final Fantasy for being emblematic of Dragoons and Black Mages specifically within that franchise.
