Hmm she might have moved up on my list, I'm still thinking about Robin, Black Knight, Owian, and Anna but I think Micaiah might be a pretty solid choice.
She really moved a lot this year; please keep supporting pals!

Micaiah is currently now polling No. 2 in the "Choose your own Legends" vote in Fire Emblem Heroes! While her winning would probably not increase her chances for Smash, it definitely would not hurt.

I'm gladly sacrificing all my votes for my favorite FE character(Faye) to help Micaiah to win!

She's the underdog this time! She needs our help!

Please vote for Micaiah!!!!!!

Yes please!!

Here to echo KingofUSA85 KingofUSA85 , go and vote Micaiah people! And spread the word. There is a campaign to get Robin into second place so Micaiah needs support or she'll be cheated out of her win.
Let's do it!

I don't think this has been confirmed as real yet.

I've been reluctant to take leaks as fact since the Grinch fiasco.
The first link I posted is the official CYL website's CSS code. Basically they already posted the winners on the site but they aren't publicly viewable yet. Using ctrl+f "stand" you'll find "stand-01/02-male/female" that have image links for the 2 male and female winners. Also on the bottom of the first link is this image which will presumably be shown once the winners are officially announced.

EDIT: Official results are now up and the exact picture I mentioned earlier is even used.

Woo! I'll be saving up for Micaiah now, but iirc we get one free, right?

Oh yeah I'd also like to join the support list. Granted Celica is still my most wanted FE character but if Micaiah made it into Smash I'd be fine with that as well.

Congrats Micaiah! Can't wait to see what her Brave version is like.

She may not be in Ultimate but she officially ranks among the most popular FE characters, that's a big victory!

I feel that if she was as popular 11 years ago as she is now, she would probably be in Smash. She was not nearly as well recieved then as she is now.

But I always really liked her though.
I think her big issue for Smash was always going to be coming from the same game as Ike. Even if the game had sold better where she would be more popular, Ike would have been even that much more popular than her.

I'm so happy to see Micaiah in the Top 1 Female and Top 2 Overall :D

Thank you everyone that participate in made this possible; I was actually afraid that F!Robin or Anna would surpass her, because I saw Camilla as a unmovable object; in the end, not only Micaiah maintain her position as a CYL Winner; she became a Top 2 Overall :D

This is great news! This is some evidence that Micaiah is quite popular. Not proof because CYL polls aren't real popularity polls but due to its wide scale nature, can be a very rough estimate in popularity. What is impressive is that not that many people have played RD compared to Fates and Awakening as well as the fact she doesn't have recency bias. Goes to show how popular RD and Micaiah is for the people that are familiar with the game. Don't let anti Micaiah comments fool you. There are a lot more positive and neutral comments towards her than negative. Just go on reddit and make a post about how Micaiah sucks and you'll get down voted whereas the people defending Micaiah will have a lot of upvotes. That's my observation after seeing many Micaiah related posts on both Reddits.

Maybe when IS decides to make Radiant Dawn available for download or remade, Micaiah can be a popular choice for Smash as she'll be on everyone's mind and gain even more popularity. At least have her in FE Warriors next time.

Indeed! This is a great moment for Micaiah! She finally have the respect she deserved and people start going for her.

It was easier to go for any of the 3DS Characters (or Loki) to try to gain the first place against Camilla; but was Micaiah who did it in the end.

I hope she appears in the next version of FE Warriors and in more game; I'll buy anything with her that comes near (and not so near) me XDU

It's great to see Micaiah among the top of that poll! I say that since Awakening has three characters in, then Radiant Dawn is quite capable of having a second rep in Micaiah.
I hope.

Well two of them are echoes. Also, Awakening is a lot more popular and Sakurai also seems to love it.

She's also getting more fan art thanks to her victory!

I think people going for Loki would be off the table because those who oppose Camilla don't want extreme fanservice. Other popular 3DS characters had too many alts and were also off the table. So Micaiah was the logical one to rally behind.

Would just Micaiah's presence be enough to sell you FE Warriors or other spin off titles? Damn that goes to show how passionate you are when it comes to Micaiah.

BTW, there will be a Micaiah banner soon. Get ready for more Micaiah merges!

It makes sense in the hindsight that Micaiah had arrived to the Top 10 (despite being mostly dominate for Newish characters... and Eirika xD), but getting that many votes it's overwhelming.

And yeah; I could; and I will if that ends up being the case.

BTW Micaiah Supporters; what do you think of you Micaiah will be in her Brave Version?

Who do you expect her to resemble? Which weapon and movement type do you expect her to use?

I'd love for her to get Yune's outfit. She might be based on Sephiran, which would also be cool. Not sure what unit type she could be, I could see her being staff infantry or the first Brave tome.

I don't think I've made a post in here yet, but Micaiah has my support. I was happy to see her claim 1st in this year's CYL (voted for her each year) and hoping to pull her Summer version either on the next seasonal freebie or the voted banner. I know her CYL version will be my free pick this year.

I think FE is long overdue for an all-magic user and Micaiah would be a great choice for that role. I don't know terribly much about her abilities as I've not played Radiant Dawn (ffs Nintendo rerelease it please) but I feel Tellius having it's other well-known protagonist would be appreciated.

I think Micaiah is more popular than a lot of people assume. For example, Micaiah was ranked as an A tier lord recently on Reddit and there wasn't much fuss about her high placement.

How much money are you willing to pay for Micaiah DLC?

I want her to be a dagger unit. What theories do you have?

Thanks for your support!

I'm surprised you've voted for her each year despite never having played RD. Is there a reason you've supported her this much without knowing much about her?

I've finally got Micaiah at 6 merges and 6 heroic flowers. Hopefully within three months, I can max her out completely.

My Micaiah is even stronger than Troy's who has a +4 Micaiah with 0 heroic flowers. So Troy, I have surpassed you in my devotion to Micaiah compared to yours.

The idea of seeing Micaiah in Yune's outfit sounds quite cute xD

I think there are enough material to justify Micaiah with vary weapons; unlike the CYL1 Characters (and most of the CYL2) she lacks a obvious choice (because her parents are pretty much non-existent, and she already uses her grandma's outfit as a Priestess).

Welcome to the club TLK! Micaiah's abilities would be well appreciated in Smash Bros :D

I think Micaiah Summer will appear in the next Legendary Banner; the rest of the Dancer were already used in the Leg/Myth Banners.

Nice!

10 Dollars; it would vary of how much content it has her DLC; but still.

Well... I would imagine Micaiah using a Dagger, Blue/Red Magic, a Staff or a Sword.

That depends of which character they decided to base her inspiration.

My Orbs are RIP after I tried to get additional Micaiah merges; and just got one (and a Hinoka).

If the banner has L!Roy, then Micaiah will be colour sharing with him which is great for you. I wouldn't mind him either.

How much were you willing to spend on Roy? I meant just the character, no extras. I thought you'd spend a fortune.

If they decide to use Sothe, does that mean Micaiah will have an outfit with an exposed belly button? hmm.... XDU

Basically; but also would depend of Brave Celica; which is more likely to appear in the Leg Banner.

I don't have a plan for the orbs used.

And if that is the case... Yes.

And it seems Roy is actually the Leg Hero.

Lol so confused for a second what the Leg banner was. I know there is some fanservice in the game but specifically doing a banner about legs seemed too far. (I see now you were shortening Legendary)

I just like Micaiah for a handful of reasons (and also because I REALLY want to play the Tellius games without resorting to emulation.

6 merges? Lucky, I couldn't even get a single second one to fix my -atk copy. :(

Thank you, I hope she is in there because I'm absolutely dying for her. The second free seasonal banner gave me no red stones, gurgh.

I know you actually mean "Legendary", but you sound like you're talking about a banner about sexy legs.

I don't blame you for thinking that, I actually like legs :p

Well; Micaiah actually appeared this time!

Instead of Brave Celica which is weird after already having the other Brave Heroes, but makes sense considering the fact we have double Red Legendary Hero and Seasonal Heroes have more priority than Brave Heroes.

I meant Roy DLC in Smash.

So I have over 350 orbs for more Micaiah merges. That's great for me because the pity breakers are great.

Are you excited to pull Roy?

I bought it for 5 dollars; I'm not sure how much I would spend on it otherwise.

I'm excited.

View attachment 194952 Well look who greeted me on my free summon!
That is awesome! I hope you enjoy you Micaiah Dancer <3

BTW; for anyone interested in give a vote in a fanballot, some hours ago SSBU News decided to begin one. Let's give some votes and show our voice!

Did you pull anyone on the banner?

Also, can you respond to your status update on SerenesForest?

I ended up voting in the fan ballot. Guess who it was.
I ended up pulling S!Micaiah, L!Roy and H!Niles.

Nice :3

__________

BTW; tonight a Grand Conquest with RD Thematic will begin (the 3 factions this time are represented for Micaiah, Sanaki and Black Knight).

I don't know if anyone will notice it; but I would like to share a link to Mangs' Poll to select the next character that will appear as his Top Banner in Youtube; the winner will also get priority for the next Character Spotlight (the exceptions to this are if Ishtar or Zelgius won, because they already have Spotlight developed very recently, and instead the second place will get the Character Spotlight).

Of course; I'm sharing this because Micaiah is one of the choices.

Thanks for your attention!
