Fire Emblem Heroes was the first game in the long-running series not to appear on a Nintendo console. There’s clearly been some appetite for it, as the tactical RPG has been one of Nintendo’s biggest mobile successes, earning the gaming giant $656 million since its 2017 release. If you want in on the kind of action, check out our Fire Emblem Heroes tier list.

Developed by Intelligent Systems (Metroid, Advance Wars), the game features characters from numerous Fire Emblem titles, pitting them in turn-based battles against enemy AI teams. As there are many Heroes to choose from, it can be quite daunting when selecting which of them you want in your ranks But luckily for you, we have compiled this tier list  so your life is made easier when picking and selecting your Heroes. 

In Fire Emblem Heroes, most units wield a weapon of a certain color (red, green, blue or grey/colorless). These colors are utilized in a color weapon triangle where each color is strong against and weak to one of the other colors.

  • RED: Strong vs. GREEN. Weak vs. BLUE
  • BLUE: Strong vs. RED. Weak vs. GREEN
  • GREEN: Strong vs. BLUE. Weak vs. RED

Just so you know, using a color strong versus another color will add 20% to the Attack stat, while Attack will be reduced by 20% versus a weak color. 

To get Heroes, you will need to summon them from attribute orbs. When you start summoning characters, five attribute orbs will randomly appear as either red attribute, blue attribute, green attribute or grey attributes.

When you select one of these color coded orbs, you will have a chance of receiving a specific hero with that same attribute. For example, Abel can be summoned from blue orb attributes.

You can choose a summon stone of your favorite attribute, this will allow you to attempt to get the type of character you want:

  • RED: Attributes: Swords, Flame Magic, Red Breath (Beast)
  • BLUE: Attributes: Lance, Thunder Magic, Blue Breath (Beast)
  • GREEN: Attributes: Axe, Wind Magic, Green Breath (Beast)
  • GREY: Attributes: Bow, Shuriken, Staff (Healer)
