Morgan is hands-down the best choice imo. She/He is literally tiny Robin, with the same/similar build, look, and weapons. Not too surprising since Morgan is Robin's canonical child. It's almost too perfect.

I was actually hoping for Morgan to replace Chrom in Robin's Final Smash this time around since Chrom's playable. But I guess he's gotta beat himself up.

Fell Grima is literally possessed robin lol
And Fell Grima only attacks by using the giant literal Grima, not any of Robin's regular spells or sword attacks.
Grima!Robin I see more as a boss. I even made a boss moveset:

View attachment 239416 View attachment 239417

Boss: Grima

Game of Origin: Fire Emblem Awakening (2013)

What does the boss do?
Grima usually attacks via his possessed Robin (who is entirely hooded) but sometimes uses Expiration or tilts himself in an attempt to knock the player off; the dragon himself IS the stage.


Fell-Robin’s Attacks:
-Fell-Arcwind: Fell-Robin attacks with two dark tornadoes in two random spots of the stage that might launch the player off the screen (17%, medium knockback)


-Fell-Arcthunder: Fell-Robin forms the Mark of Grima, and each eye on the symbol forms a giant electric orb that homes in on the player (15% each, small knockback)

-Fell-Arcfire: Fell-Robin surrounds itself with five orbs of fire and sends them out one at a time (17% each, OK knockback)

-Aversa’s Night: Fell-Robin sends dark spears upwards, and they land wherever the player is if they don’t dodge in time (18%, OK knockback). If they successfully hit, Grima recovers half the damage taken by the player, because the tome places a curse that recovers Grima’s health by half of the player’s taken damage.

-Fell-Thoron: Fell-Robin charges Thunder to its limit, and flies into the background to shoot out Thoron wherever it aims at the player (35%, far knockback)

-Choke-Grab: Fell-Robin teleports to the player when Grima shoots his Fell Breath. If it's successful in grabbing the player, Fell-Robin grabs the player, shocks them (18%), and throws them into the floor of spikes (26%, medium knockback)

Grima’s Attacks:
-Expiration: Grima turns his head and targets the player. He then shoots out his Fell Breath wherever targeted, leaving a large area of spikes on his back (24%, medium knockback)


-Flying Beast: Grima turns sharply to the left or right, forcing the player to get to high ground or plummet off the stage. Fell-Robin will use Fell-Arcfire during this part, making that difficult.

Strategy: Focus almost entirely on Fell-Robin during the fight, even when Grima turns. Only pay attention to Grima himself when he uses Expiration, as it means you’ll possibly have to lure the blast zone away from Fell-Robin so you aren’t restricted from attacking it.


Setting/Intro: Grima’s back, in the sky above Ylisse. Fell-Robin floats down, completely hooded as its eyes glow, and Grima roars and faces the sky.

Defeat: Fell-Robin vanishes into darkness as Grima roars one last time and crashes into Plegia Castle.

Who fights this boss in Classic Mode?
-:ultlucina: (Both main characters of Awakening)
-:ultganondorf: (Dark Lord…kinda; plays Death Mountain)
-:ultmewtwo: (w/:ultpikachu:; controlled human; plays Battle! Lorekeeper Zinnia)
-:ultchrom: (See Lucina)
-:ultpit: (Evil divine being)
-:ultpalutena: (See Pit; plays Hades’ Infernal Theme)
-:ultridley: (Both similar in appearance)
-:ultrichter: (He and Fell-Robin are characters who were once controlled; plays Dance of Illusions)
-:ulthero: (Fights normal :ultrobin: first, then Fell-Robin, as a stand in for the Dragonlord. Plays Fighting Spirits, then Battle for the Glory)

Hey everyone! Sorry for the delay. My last few weeks have been crazy. I got into a car accident and I was being reviewed for a promotion at my job. I should be able to update things this week! Thank you for understanding.

Young Dunban is probably the best option we have for the Monado Boy.

Beyond that not too many without going outside of videogames with dudes like Haru Glory from RAVE.

Malos would be a good Shulk echo.
They would have to make him a bit different, like Ken, to make him work tho. He's bigger and slower, but has even more powerful Monado arts. Also Vision's animation needs to be changed. Maybe for Cyclone. Works as a counter too (And hopefully it wouldn't suck in the air).

There's two that are possible being Malos and Zanza, but they're both spoiler heavy.
Zanza himself is a huge spoiler.
But Malos is part of the game since the beginning. Revealing what kind of weapon he uses after he's fully powered again is not a big deal. Since in the game itself they don't make a big deal about his sword.

Zanza and Malos could work, but there's also Alvis who could fit. Also a spoiler of course, but at least his ability to use the Monado is shown relatively early in the game.

Malos's status as a Monado-wielder honestly ceased to be a spoiler in any way after T~TGC was revealed, where it was depicted by the trailer + other stuff as clearly being the signature weapon of Torna's known antagonist. At this point it's basically as much of a spoiler as the fact that Malos is an Aegis.

Sakurai put Seven in Shulk's Final Smash. I don't think he's too shy about Xenoblade spoilers. That said, I think your two suggestions are pretty much all we can ask for, and even then Malos would probably necessitate Rex, Pyra, or some other sort of Xenoblade 2 representation. It wouldn't make sense to have just the hero of the first game and the villain of the second game. Alvis, though, could be pretty cool, so I suggest him.

Looking for new first parties that aren't Waluigi.

Seven? They only have Fiora (Mecha Fiora technically), dunban, and riki.

Has anyone here mentioned Alvis? He wields the Monado first time you meet him and his build is similar to Shulk.

Malos and Dunban are good suggestions though.

Everything that had to be said about this has already been said but basically, since 99% of Shulk's moveset consists of using the Monado, anyone who also uses the weapon can qualify for a clone or semi-clone. So yeah, just take your pick: Dunban, Alvis, Zanza or Malos.
