Fire Emblem Heroes Tier List

What are your best heroes in Fire Emblem Heroes (FEH)? 

Before answering this, let me ask something more interesting: do you know the entire FEH tier list?  

I am sure you’re not!

I guess nobody knows the entire FE-heroes tier list without enough research and gameplay.

Well… Here I am with the ultimate Fire Emblem Heroes hero tier list; you can thank me later for my immense research of a roster of more than 500 heroes. 

I know sifting through the list is a daunting task, but my love for this gacha-strategy game did help me through.

Don’t you know the gacha formula that FEH follows? 

Shortly speaking, in this game, we collect units, aka heroes that we deploy in the grid and turn-based strategic battles, following its own unique main story. There are dozens of side quests and limited-time events, too, that peppered throughout the game.

We all know that every hero is not created equally, which means to build a great team, we should know the ranking of heroes.

Fire Emblem Heroes Tier List

So, to make your gameplay competitive, here’s the tier list with respective descriptions.

Before moving on, there are a couple of things you need to know:

  • Hero rarity, like 3-star, 4-star, 5-star is least important, as you can level up a 3-star hero up to 5-star.
  • The franchise’s iconic weapon triangle system follows like this;
Unit ColorWeak AgainstStrong Against
GreenRedBlue
RedBlueGreen
BlueGreenRed

FAQ: What about the heroes having colorless weapons?

Heroes with colorless weapons exist outside the weapon triangle; those heroes have unique stats/effects applied to them. Some colorless weapons can also be used against flying or mounted units. 

Note: I am adding a column of the hero’s movement type, indicating the mobility on different maps; so, be ready to know the best heroes to raise in your game!

S-TIER – The BEASTS of the BEST

Yes, no matter what comes in front, these absolute beasts can beat them up consistently, and of course, level up your score.

A-TIER – Greater than Great Heroes

Not as powerful as S-Tier, but significant enough to take you to the end; I would still call them the upper echelons.

C-TIER – Close to AVERAGE HEROES

Not potential enough to be with you till the end, but you can get the maximum output of these average heroes for a significant portion of the game; I would say swap them as soon as possible.

D-TIER – Not-for-the-end-game Heroes

Heroes in this tier are not for those who want to cut to the end game; they are not fit for critical facets of the game compared to those in the higher tiers. Consider them only if you have no other option.

F-TIER – Close-to-FAILED Heroes

All other heroes not included in this Fire Emblem Heroes tier list fall into F-tier, or you can say, remaining heroes are very poor. So, it’s best to avoid them – this will save your resources and time.

With a roster of 500+ characters, there could be many more that won’t provide any valuable outcome… in the long run.

I hope you find this insightful list helpful enough to assemble the best team for your FEH battles.
