Fire Emblem Heroes Tier List

Here are the best characters to invest in Fire Emblem Heroes.

Fire Emblem is a franchise that spans 16 games with nearly 600 playable characters overall. As such, it’s no surprise that Fire Emblem Heroes, its mega-crossover mobile game, has an equally intimidating number of units. It doesn’t help that many of them come in multiple versions (Chrom alone has five).

This is why this tier list only contains the useful characters. If you pull Spring Xander, Mist, or any other unit not found here, feel free to let them gather dust.

Some things you need to know about Fire Emblem Heroes

  • First, initial stars don’t matter in FEH. You can easily level up a three-star into a five-star with time and resources. The most important thing is that the characters themselves have high base stats and great skills.
  • Second, the familiar FE triangle weapon system is still in place: Red beats Blue, Blue beats Green, and Green beats Red. However, FEH has added a fourth “Colorless” weapon category. They’re neither strong nor effective against the other three. Colorless-weaponed heroes also gain useful skills, like poison, as they level up.
  • Finally, the easiest way to build decent teams is to gather units with the same movement types, since many of their skills work well together. For example, Cavalry units usually have buff skills, which makes all-Cavalry teams very durable. We’ve sorted this tier list based on movement types for this reason.

All that said, here's every FEH unit you can invest in.
