Camilla Brings the Pain
Who is Camilla?
Camilla is the oldest sister of the royal Nohrian family. A playful motherly figure that can be deadly when she needs to in war and loves nothing more than being around her sibling Corrin. She commands two retainers in the form of Beruka and Selena as a part of her Nohrian squadron. She is a major character in the Revelations and Conquest route of Fates and a boss in Fire Emblem Birthright. As a Malig Knight, she rides atop her trusty Wyvern mount with a large axe and toes as her weapon of choice.
How can Camilla work as a fighter?
As previously stated, Camilla starts off as a Malig Knight unit in Fire Emblem Fates. Which is usually an airborne unit that's granted more mobility around a field with tomes for ranged attacks and up close axe attacks. Despite this, she wouldn't work similar to Robin as weapon durability is no longer a thing for tomes in Fates. Not only that, she has a heavy axe as her close combat weapon of choice to cleave through foes. Unlike a sword, these attacks are more about hacking with raw strength and breaking through defenses.
Given the nature of quadruped fighters in Smash, the Wyvern itself can be incorporated in her moveset somehow. She can either ride on it at all times for a more unique fighter or use it as a part of a recovery in case programing it would be too much. The tomes she used can be mostly thunder give these are the ones she start off with at the beginning of Conquest and work to compensate for her heavy slow style. Like the other axe closes (like a Fighter), she would be more about strength and durability over speed and agility with the Wyvern as her ways of compensating for it.
How popular is Camilla? Why should she be considered for Smash?
Popularity for this dark chick something that shouldn't be underestimated. She easily tops the female side of Fates popularity polls (between Female Corrin and Oboro) and 4th of the female characters in the Fire Emblem Heroes Ballot, a full scale figurine that is being worked on, and gained a fan following since her first reveal. She's a popular unit for her good stats, a common spouse for marriage with the avatar (Corrin), and she's got enough plot importance like her fellow siblings (but with Xander as the most popular naturally). Not to mention her Smash following is quite vocal, if not small, before and after Smash 4's release.
She wouldn't be a clone of Robin despite her tome usage as they won't be temporary and the axe alone helps separate her as a fighter. The Wyvern too can work if there is enough work put into making it carry Camilla the whole time in a battle like Fire Emblem. It's a unique new class introduced to Fates, one that she represents well.
Arguments Against Camilla
There are too many Fire Emblem characters.
While it may be true that it does have enough representation, who's to say that we can't at least get more or even some cuts to the existing ones? Fire Emblem is now labeled as a big name IP in recent days thanks to Fates' success after the release of Awakening. And the series had its own special Nintendo Direct to confirm a multitude of games from the mobile game Heroes to the upcoming Fire Emblem Switch game. It's safe to say the popularity is there despite the series current niche status. Fates is still fresh in everyone's minds and there is enough room for Camilla.
Camilla is too sexualized for Smash.
Where did I hear that argument before? Oh right. Let's dance boys.
Bayonetta's inclusion in Smash not only opened the gateway for her, but proved that she changes can be done to stick with the game's A CERO Rating in Japan. Given the extensive changes to her backside and and Corrin's thighs, more armor platings can appear to cover Camilla's lower body and bosom respectively. That way, she would fit like a glove in both only an older Fire Emblem title, but Smash itself. She doesn't necessarily need to be this succubus in order to be in Smash when her personality would feel the same no matter what.
Fire Emblem Fates would be old news by time the Switch game is out
Thing is, we don't know if they would consider a Lord from that title yet, Sure it was done a couple of time soft games like Path of Radiance (Ike) and Binding Blade (Roy), but there isn't enough proof that we could get it. Even then, they can just look at the popular characters we have from Fates, which she is a huge character on her own like her siblings and the Hoshidian scum. There's also Azura of an unknown kingdom, but she rests between conflicting with Corrin's current water them or having lower popularity. There is still chance, if not minimal one, for Camilla to be considered for her notable fandom.
~ "Cute child"
Entrance Animation: Camilla flys onto the stage on the back of her large black Wyvern. The beast lets out a mighty roar before she jumps down with her trademark weapon ready. Camilla subtly waves her pet goodbye as it flies away before she focus on her targets.
Idle Animation: Her stance is more of a lady-like pose referencing her appearance on Conquest's backward, completely with subtle swaying hips and her axe held towards the ground in her right hand. Occasionally, she would flip her hair in a teasing manner or sometimes briefly raise her axe higher to move her arm.
Walk: She struts suggestively in a slow manner with her axe held slightly higher, showing off her dominance.
Run: She charges forward akin to a Fighter (like Charlotte) with both hands holding her axe to the right.
Sleeping Animation: She sleeps with her head down and entire body kneeled with her axe supporting the rest of her weight.
Dizzy Animation: She staggers her entire body while barely holding her axe, all while moaning as if she's in serious pain.
Dodge Animation: She jumps to the side like a Fighter to dodge the attack.
Camilla swipes with her axe before swinging it again quickly. This would lead to her pulling out a Thunder Tome to "torture" her foes with a short ranged shock from the book. This can be done continuously until a combo-finisher with a powerful burst of thunder.
Camilla "catapults" with her axe to do a kick with her black stilettos.
She swings her axe overhead with an aggressive motion.
She does a quick "footchop" with her axe as if she wanted to cripple her enemy.
Camilla leads for a powerful chop with her axe. A hard hitting attack. Taken from a Fighter's Attack animation.
Camilla does a pinwheel motion with her axe to cut foes in a spinning manner.
Camilla fires a shortchanged fire burst with a Fire Tome.
Camilla giggles before swinging her axe backwards quickly.
She casts a Disrobing Gale spell to fire a quick moving whirlwind above her. Unlike Mega Man's Air Shooter, this stronger and moves a shorter distance.
Camilla dives in a "barrel roll" matter with her axe out for a screwing attack. Once she hits the ground with this attack, she will be stuck briefly before flipping herself back into her stance.
Camilla takes out her famed Thunder Tome while charging enough magic in it. Her expression is intense at the moment until she finally releases it, which results in a large burst of thunder before her. The attack is more affection when the foe is in the epicenter of the shock to get the most image.
Camilla holds her axe down with her eyes set on the location above her whilst squatting down. This would lead her to her briefly tossing her own large axe into the air to deal heavy damage. She lucky catches it in time with a smile as if she knew.
Camilla takes out a Ragnarok Tome, caring the amount of magic to to use based on the charge. The end result would be a massive burst of flames at the feet where her opponents are standing. Think something similar to ZZS's Down Smash.
Camilla reaches out with her free hand while saying "Come here!".
She kicks her foe with her leg as she watch her them suffer.
She slashes at her foe's chest with her axe viciously, which is a reference to how Garon killed Sumeragi.
Camilla quickly turns and toss her foe before casting a Fire Spell at their back with her axe still planted in the ground. .
Camilla flings the foe into the air high into the air. This would lead to her castling Excalibur to rapidly slash the with wind magic, with the last hit sending them flying.
Camilla literally lies her foe on the found as if she's preparing to execute them, but into stomps them viciously while saying "You need a spanking. The last stomp kicking the foe into the grand.
Neutral Special: Mjolnir
Camilla takes out the famed tome while saying "Feel heaven's wrath!" before finally casting the spell. This would lead to a burst of lightning occurring before her. The move can be held in the casting phase to dictate where the spell should hit as long as they move around. This is a good picture between Paluenta's Explosive Flame and Zelda's Din's Fire. Unlike Robin's tomes, this one can be used as long as it wants as will the other Tome themed specials.
Side Special: Hand Axe
Camilla takes out a familiar small axe with one hand and tosses it in an arc. This is a fairly quick projectile that can only be tossed one at a time. It can be stuck to a surface before it disappears or hit the desired target with enough force. This is more of an anti-air move to attack the air fighters in a match.
Up Special: Fimbulvetr
Camilla raises the tome above her head with her head down while casting the spell. "Let the winds guide thee!" she shouts before powerful yellow winds gather apron her body. This would lift her only straight into the air at a fair distance, damaging anyone close with these powerful gust. Once the speed is over, this will leave her in a helpless state to fall down.
Down Special: Ginnungagap
Camilla gains a dark aura once she pulls out this dark tome with a dark grin. She says "You will not see the light of day" in a sinister manner before the spell is fully cast. This would result in a slow moving ball of purple magic drifting before her. This magic ball will also suck in anything nearby with a vacuum effect, items or even other fighters.
The result will be a massive magic void as the projectile erupts and expands into a resulting burst. This savagely harms anything at a Bowser-wide radius and can even harm Camilla if she happens to walk close enough despite not being effected by the suction. This is easily one of her strongest spells and can harm a player if they are not careful enough. Also, there is a cool down session of 6-8 seconds after every use to reflect its origins as a tome that drains your magic away.
Final Smash: Wyvern Rider
Camilla shouts "Come on, let's raise some mayhem!" before a loud roar is heard from the distance. She eventually jumps soon as her scaley steed arrives to carry her around in the air. This state allows the Wyvern to be controlled by your movements during the duration of the Final Smash. The speed of the dragon is fairly fast, if not, slightly faster than Mega Charizard. The A Button allows her to cast a Thunder Spell to shock her foes with large bursts of electricity. The B Button allows the Wyvern to spiral at her foes as Camilla holds her axe out, slicing their enemies.
When the Final Smash ends, the two would land for her to stroke its head one last time saying "Thank you dearie". Then she steps off of the beast's back for it to fly back into the horizon quickly. Then will be done regardless of the location and can leave her in danger of falling if she's off the stage.
Taunt 1: Camilla swings her axe twice before raising it forward as if its a threat. "During this, she says, "I will play wth you."
Taunt 2: Camilla raises her axe behind her head a la Ike with a motherly smile on her face. Then she will place it back down after a giggle.
Taunt 3: Camilla does a "come here" gesture with her finger before doing a "cute throat" gesture to show that she's far from sweet.
Victory Animation 1: Camilla is on the back of her Wyvern as it rears up and roars. Then the beast settles down before its stroked on the neck, leading her to giggle.
Victory Animation 2: She walk towards the camera and shifts it to her face, a reference to her getting with Corrin in Birthright. The standard dialogue is "I hope you aren't too hurt". Her special quote with Corrin has her say, "I love you too much to let you go on.~"
Victory Animation 3: Camila would her flip her hair briefly before looking to the side, saying "I've fought knights that were more troublesome than you."
