With Fire Emblem being the most clear example, there are certain games where you can easily have feelings for the characters you interact with. You want them to succeed, you want them to survive and win, you overall want everything to go well for them. That's not always the case though, is it? For those unaware, Permadeath is a situation in games where if your ally dies, they're dead FOR GOOD and DO NOT come back. Have you ever had a time where an ally you truly cared for died due to a stupid move on your part? Maybe an incredibly unlucky crit doomed your strongest partner? Come, tell and take all of the weight off your mind.

With Fire Emblem: Awakening being released everywhere now and with the series being well-known for 'Permadeath', I figured we have a confessional of sorts where we can tell of our fatal faults. So please, do share; we won't laugh. I promise. ;)

I always loose my Pegasus riders really early on in fire emblem games, like in sacred stones but that was due to me not knowing that they were weak to archers :/ but anyway I haven't lost anyone yet, but probably will soon :P

Even though this thread will mostly be about Fire Emblem, I can't help but talk about Nuzlocke runs in Pokemon. Basically, Nuzlocke is a custom ruleset where 1) You can only catch the first Pokemon you see in a new areas, and 2) If your Pokemon faints, it dies and must be released or permanently boxed (basically permadeath)

So I had been training my Numel into a Camerupt in my Emerald Nuzlocke, and after 2 hours of training, I decided to take on the 5th gym. And in the second trainer battle inside, a freaking Wigglytuff one hit kills my Camerupt with a critical-hit Double Edge... So much time wasted...

@Hysterical - Ah, you got me. I saw an article about how one of the editors at ONM lost Donnel, I saw the comments saying their experiences. That inspired me to make this. :)

@Bulby - I've heard of Nuzlocke runs, sure they can count for this thread.

Well I'm playing Fire Emblem Awakening on hard/classic right now and I tend to lose a few now and then. I don't reset if I'm far into a battle, so it leads to some casualties. Currently on Chapter 10.

Death Log:
Chapter 3 - Kellam: Didn't even get to know him. Oh well!
Chapter 4 - Miriel: Unfortunate loss, but I'm enough mage for all of us - I hope. >.>
Chapter 5 - Maribelle: Couldn't save both of them. At least Ricken survived.

I think after I play the game through I'll do a run on easy but with absolutely no restarting - with any mistake costing me dearly. :3
