The Fire Emblem series has many recurring themes, and one of them is recruiting neutral or enemy units into your ranks. This is done through a number of ways, but the most common one is simply talking to the recruitable unit with the appropriate soldier, which is usually the Lord character or someone who shares a past with them. While the easiest method outside of units being outright given to you, it’s still a bit far fetched. I mean, try that next time you get mugged. Just say, “Hey dude, I’m getting mugged by you and your crew here. Can you help me out?” and see what happens. Well, don’t actually try it, or they’ll probably beat you up AND laugh at you at the same time.
Track Name: Together We Ride
Game: Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword (2003)
System: Gameboy Advance
Composer: Yuka Tsujiyoko
While I had difficulty choosing which version of the song to pick, I settled for the Fire Emblem 7: Blazing Sword version due to it being the first Fire Emblem to see an international release. Composed by Yuka Tsujoyoko, the woman responsible for most of the music in Fire Emblem and Paper Mario, this song plays while recruiting new units on the battlefield. Usually accompanying an empathetic plea for help, a hilarious, on-the-spot defection, or, in some cases, a case of sibling scolding, Together We Ride has a sense of accomplishment in the tune that compliments its name very well in the sense that it represents your growing, colorful army. Whatever version it’s in, this song is immensely popular
Also the Super Smash Bros. version of the song has a hilarious mash up called, “Together We Ride That Booty.” I’m speechless.
