Chrom is a tanky sword-wielding infantry unit that boasts massive damage and physical survivability thanks to the combination of his high health pool, the Falchion, and his specials, Sol and Aether. Chrom's default passives revolve around physical defense, whether it's boosting allied defense with Spur Def 3, or buffing his own defense when his health is low with Defiant Defense. Chrom is one of the few units which can choose between two default specials, Sol and Aether. Sol has a shorter cooldown at 4, while Aether deals more damage with a cooldown of 5. However, both specials are tough to pull off due to Chrom's lackluster speed stat, making it nearly impossible for Chrom to double-attack enemies. His weapon, the Falchion, makes Chrom excel at slaying dragonstone users, such as Tiki (Young) and Fae, as well as heal himself by 10 HP at the start of every third turn.

All of this physical bulk, high damage, and healing comes at a price, however. Chrom's Achilles' heel is his terrible Resistance stat and speed, making him very vulnerable to fast blue mages, such as Robin (M) and Linde, who completely annihilate him. In the end, Chrom is probably the worst of the group of Falchion users, lacking Lucina's speed, Alm's superior stats, or Marth's mobility. This does not make him a bad unit at all, however, as his massive offense and physical survivability can do you well against many powerful units where others couldn't. Place him strategically, and you should be taking out anything that stands in the Exalted Prince's way!
