Melee's roster is comprised of licensed Nintendo characters who have appeared in previous Nintendo owned or published games. Notably, Marth and Roy who appeared in the Fire Emblem series made their first overseas appearance in Melee, as no entries in the Fire Emblem series were released outside of Japan until after Melee's release.
