Moveset table orientation[edit]

I noticed how Min Min's table can multiple columns: one for each of her different ARMS.

Since it was confirmed that different materials will effect the damage, should we make a table that lists each material in different columns (and maybe a column named "Steve" can be used to represent moves that either don't use crafted weapons, or that are used while the weapon is broken)?

Once again, this is only for when Steve is released. I'm not proposing it should be done now. Just wanted to bring it up and see what everyone thinks.Thecontributor22 (talk) 18:08, October 3, 2020 (EDT)

This definitely seems like the most logical way to do it. Ahemtoday (talk) 18:40, October 3, 2020 (EDT)

I was going to suggest this as well. 0%Kamikazee (talk) 18:57, October 3, 2020 (EDT)

I agree with this, too. Seems like the most logical way to approach things. KingMaiz (talk) 14:11, October 4, 2020 (EDT)

This is what I had in mind. Apologies if it seems a little messed up.

Note: All numbers are listed as base damage, without the 1v1 multiplier.

I saw the beginning of Min Min's table in the editing mode, and based it off of that. Sorry if it looks a little messed up right now. Thecontributor22 (talk) 09:21, October 5, 2020 (EDT)

FE3H reference?[edit]

Hey, this may sound silly because Minecraft has no connection to Fire Emblem: Three Houses, but I saw this post. It claims that Steve's trailer references Three Houses cutscene. Steve and Byleth are in the light. Mario and Dimitri are in the dark, presumably both surprised; Mario surprised about Steve and Dimitri assuming Byleth was the ghost.

It's a somewhat generic shot, so I don't think so. Judging by the title, this post seems to be more of a joke anyway. ~ Serena Strawberry (talk) 19:22, October 8, 2020 (EDT)
I understand now. Thank you for the response, Serena Strawberry. Derekblue1SigHead1.png Derekblue1 (talk) Derekblue1SigHead2.png 20:18, October 8, 2020 (EDT)

Should Values Which Have Two Decimal Places (Such as Diamond Neutral Attack at 4.59%) be Shown With One or Two Decimal Places?[edit]

For characters such as Terry or Captain Falcon, values are shown to the first decimal place on the wiki if that damage value has a decimal place. However, for characters such as Joker (SSBU), an attack such as Joker's up aerial shows 0.75% for hits 1-4 on full hop and 0.6375% on short hop on the wiki. For Steve, attacks such as neutral attack and forward tilt have values to the second decimal which do exist and take effect in game and are not just calculation by-products. Should the values be shown to the second decimal place or just to the first in the move table?

Here are the values for neutral attack and forward tilt if they were to the second place:

None Wooden Stone Iron Golden Diamond
2.72% 3.40% 3.74% 4.08% 3.40% 4.59%

I believe having it to the second place will make sure people know precisely what the damage value of each material type is. Frostauk (talk) 09:16, October 14, 2020 (EDT)

We show the values as they are defined by the game, and thus should be as many decimal places as necessary - show them all, but don't show needless zeroes. The only exception is for rounding errors caused by (insert long explanation of how decimal points work in computers here which only matters if the damage is 10.99999 or something).

Add what blocks Steve gets on each stage?[edit]

Should we add what blocks appear on which stage for Steve to use?

Durability Tests[edit]

I did some tests for the durability of each weapon and each material. What I did was test how many times a lone move can be used before the weapon breaks. These are my results:

Neutral/Side Tilt/Neutral Aerial/Floor Attacks/ Edge Attack: 13 times (Wood & Gold), 20 times (Stone)/ 25 times (Iron & Diamond)

Forward Smash: 3 times (Wood, Stone) 4 times (Iron & Diamond), 2 times (Gold)

Up Tilt/Up Aerial: 13 times (Wood & Gold), 16 times (Stone), 18 times (Iron & Diamond)

Dash Attack: 16 times (Wood & Gold), 19 times (Stone), 22 times (Iron & Diamond)

Forward Aerial/Back Aerial: 11 times (Wood & Gold), 14 times (Stone), 15 times (Iron & Diamond)

Mining: 28 items (Wood & Gold), 34 items (Stone), 38 (Iron & Diamond)

I can't make sense of how this durability system works, but maybe someone else can make use of this information. Thecontributor22 (talk) 20:24, October 14, 2020 (EDT)

Could we turn this into information on how many resources each move uses? 0%Kamikazee (talk) 23:17, October 14, 2020 (EDT)

I recommend we wait. In a few days, we should get the list of character values extracted, which will contain all this information without requiring much guesswork. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Eggster 23:20, October 14, 2020 (EDT)
Meshima recently posted some tweets regarding durability [1] [2]. --CanvasK (talk) 18:53, October 16, 2020 (EDT)
Should we put this information into the form of a table and document it somewhere on the wiki (of course, while citing the source as well)? Thecontributor22 (talk) 23:45, October 18, 2020 (EDT)
Maybe the durability could look something like this:
Weapon Wood Stone Iron Gold Diamond
Sword 25 40 50 25 50
Axe/Pickaxe/Shovel 70 85 95 70 95

And how much is consumed could look like this:

Move Wood Stone Iron Gold Diamond
Neutral Attack/Forward Tilt/Neutral Aerial 2
Forward Smash 9 14 14 18 14
Ledge Attack/Floor Attacks 2
Up Tilt/Up Aerial 5.5
Dash Attack 4.5
Forward Aerial/Back Aerial 6.5

It's just an idea, though. That's why I want to run it by first. Thecontributor22 (talk) 07:49, October 19, 2020 (EDT)

It may be important to note how up smash doesn't use durability, either in the table or in a description. It's also missing "Mine". Other than that I think it'll work. --CanvasK (talk) 08:23, October 19, 2020 (EDT)
Sure thing. In that case, I'll make some adjustments. Thecontributor22 (talk) 11:37, October 19, 2020 (EDT)


In Minecraft, everything in Minecraft don’t have a gender. So should we refer by what Sakurai says or what regularly Minecraft says? RobbyB3ll4s (talk) 16:11, October 17, 2020 (EDT)

Also I apologize for doing that dumb edit before also. I should’ve asked here and shouldn’t have done something like that without asking. RobbyB3ll4s (talk) 16:15, October 17, 2020 (EDT)

It's okay! I also put a note on your talk page. Generally, what Sakurai says is what we go with, unless there's something else in more popular usage. In this case, since Sakurai used "he" and most everyone agrees with that, it's fine to use "he". It's also worth noting that something that's genderless can still use gendered pronouns; pronouns aren't the same as gender. ~ Serena Strawberry (talk) 16:21, October 17, 2020 (EDT)


I think having five quotes on top of the page is way to many. Should we remove these introduction taglines, since they don't provide any more info than images in gallery? 08:26, October 24, 2020 (EDT)

Byleth does this, too. I think you should go ahead and get rid of all the taglines but the main ones on both pages (leaving "Byleth Joins Smash House!" and "Steve Rocks the Block!") and see how that sets with the greater community. Be sure to state that you're doing it for consistency with Steve when you do it to Byleth. Sincerely, Samuel the Banjo-Kazooie Boss. SamtheBKBossSIGN.png 12:41, October 24, 2020 (EDT)
