is a character from Intelligent Systems's Fire Emblem series of video game. He is the central protagonist and Lord-class character of the original game Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi
, the third game, Fire Emblem: Monshō no Nazo, the remake Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the remake Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo: Hikari to Kage no Eiyū.
Although all Marth's Fire Emblem titles were released only in Japan until the release of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, he has acquired more widespread international attention through his recurring appearances in Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. series of fighting games. The appearance of Marth and Roy sparked a greater level of Western interest in the Fire Emblem series, and it was in part because of this that Nintendo began releasing the games internationally beginning with the seventh title in the series.
The design of Marth in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon differed from Super Smash Bros. Brawl due to the former's design being introduced to Smash Bros. developer Masahiro Sakurai after his design of Marth was introduced. The Shadow Dragon staff had differing opinions of the design, due to some feeling that the design shouldn't look exactly like he used to, but also feeling that the design should not change much. In the end, they made only minor changes to his design.
