So I've been playing Heroes for sometime now and I've amassed a pretty decent army at this point. Based on the ones I've obtained and are 5 Stars, I want to give my general impressions of how they have served as members of my army and as opponents in the Arenas.

This blog is updated usually every other week so feel free to revisit this page to see what new 5 Stars I have gotten and what my option of them are.


I rate the units based on general usage in Arenas and Arena Assault and the experience I had when training them. These impressions are based mostly on simple skill inheritances, but optimized premium suggested builds are kept in mind in their final scoring. Also merging is not considered. If you want to know what that unit's current build is on my account, you can look at my profile.

They are rated out of 5 stars, no halves, with the following distinctions for each tier:

  • ✯✯✯✯✯ - God Tier Character - Excellent unit overall. The few flaws the unit has is not noticeable. Whatever their role is in terms of unit type, they are the top or one of the best at it. Usually they carry an optimized statline with some broken weapon and/or combination of inheritable skills that make them incredibly hard to kill. Investing in these are a no brainer as they will consistently yield good results. These units are frequently on Arena teams, more so always present on the higher tiers of Arenas, so knowledge of how to counter these units are important for success.
  • ✯✯✯✯ - High Tier Character - Great unit overall. May have one flaw, but their perks easily make up for them. There are a few characters who are just slightly better than they are in their role, but they are no slouch in comparison. Investing in these characters leads to solid reliability from them and seldom do they ever disappoint. These units are also fairly common on Arena Teams at all ranks. But unlike 5-Star rated characters, their weaknesses are a little more straightforward to deal with.
  • ✯✯✯ - Mid Tier Character - Decent unit overall. These are average units with their role being performed by better units with higher ratings. Usually this is due to slightly less optimized stats, but their stats are by no means poor enough to make them useless. These usually show up here and there in the Arenas, but are not too difficult to dispatch.
  • ✯✯ - Low Tier Character - Bad unit overall. There are a lot of flaws to this character but there is something in their stats that allows them to perform competently, if not better than other units in very specific situations. These units are a rarity in arenas, but may be there simply to be an annoyance for your team than an actual threat. Use them for a specific niche and nothing else.
  • ✯ - Trash Tier Character - Terrible unit overall. This unit has nothing going on for it. Everything it could possibly do, there are more than enough other units in the game who do it better, even by a tiny amount. The effort put into maxing these characters are not worth it when there are so many others who should be prioritized. These units are so rare in the Arenas, they are probably there because they are that person's favorite character ever. Don't bother unless you REALLY like the character.

Please keep this in mind, these are purely subjective and based on my own personal opinions. I do have opinions about basically all units, but theses are the ones I personally have in my roster at 5 Stars and had time to personally handle and/or face off against. I am planning on making all units I have 5-Stars first before starting to make whales. At some point, you'll see my opinions on all characters.

If you want to know what I think about a unit that is not listed below, you can wait until I can 5 star them or leave a comment below. I am more than willing to give my opinion on them as an enemy if they are 5-star exclusive.


Number Name Portrait Unit Type Summary Rating
1 Lucina Portrait Lucina Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword A solid red unit and my very first 5 Star pull. Her solid offensive stats makes her a prime Red unit and her Falchion lets her be a Falchion Healer. Starting from the top at the beginning of the game's life, Lucina has managed to maintain a solid top tier position and was given more help thanks to her weapon refinement. She always has a special place in my heart because of how much she has done for my Arena, Arena Assault, and Tempest Trial teams. ✯✯✯✯✯
2 Robin (M) Portrait RobinM Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Thunder Tome My initial blue mage obtained in the same board as Lucina. Was a decent Red unit check, but was easily powercrept by better Blue units. I tend to use him to counter Brave Lyn in Arena Assault with Triangle Adept + Blárraven+. Can work and easily obtained, but best suited as a Colorless Unit Arena Assault counter. ✯✯✯
3 Nowi Portrait Nowi Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Thunder Breath While my my initial impressions were less than stellar about Nowi when I got her within the first week of playing the game, she has easily become one of my favorite units to use given the rise of Dragon teams and Breath refinement. Powerful stats, has built in Lightning Breath+, and can be obtained at 4-Stars. Anyone who can get a good stat spread Nowi should immediately invest in her for a solid long run unit. ✯✯✯✯✯
4 Merric Portrait Merric Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Wind Tome An oddly defensive Mage unit, Merric is an interesting unit for sure. He's a jack-of-all-trades which is a good and bad thing. He cannot standout like the rest of the other Green Mages in the game and his stats do not help nor hurt him. He's a 4-Star unit as well, but not a unit I would have promoted to 5-Stars, but I guess lucky for him, he was a 5-Star Pity Break. Downside is that he was the only Green 5-Star I had for a while. ✯✯
5 Alfonse Portrait Alfonse Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Alfonse is one of our "Lord" characters in the game and...he's not good, mainly due to the fact that he cannot be merged. He is slow, but has bulk. But in a Meta where Atk and Spd are the two most sought after stats for an offensive driven unit, Alfonse cannot compete. To be honest, if it was not for the fact that I insist myself into using him for Story, I probably would not use him at all. He IS usable, but not worth it if you can pull from the plethora of solid mergeable Sword units. ✯✯
6 Roy Portrait Roy Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Roy, your boy, is now better than ever thanks to a much needed Weapon Refine on top of the lackluster effect of of the Binding Blade. A shiny new Dragon Effectiveness and an emphasis on Quick Riposting on enemies has given him a little push to make him at least a mid tier character. While it is not the Distant Counter effect everyone wanted, Roy has at least managed to catch up with the other strong Lord characters in Heroes. ✯✯✯
7 Jakob Portrait Jakob Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Dagger For my first dagger unit, Jakob underperforms. I have very little little to say about him that keeps him on par with the slew of Dagger units already present upon launch and the ones that have come out since. He is a 5-Star pity break and likely the only reason why I have one. Though he is one of my favorite Fates unit, not worth investing unless IS adds Jakob's Tray with something a little more useful in terms of a skill.
8 Klein Portrait Klein Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Bow Solid Brave Bow+ user and can be obtained at 4-Stars. His starting kit has Death Blow 3 at the two rarities he can be obtained at, making him an extremely powerful Player turn character. His stats do not really allow him to make usage of it as strongly as others, but without inheritance, Klein has the makings of a solid unit for any user, both new and old. ✯✯✯
9 Takumi Portrait Takumi Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Bow Once the most powerful units in the game, Takumi has fallen from grace, both literally and figuratively, thanks in part to powercreep. Good offensive stats and access to one of the most sought after skills, Close Counter, Takumi is still relevant, but not quite as oppressively so as he was back in the day. His weapon refinement at least makes him feel more like he was in Fates. ✯✯✯✯
10 Azura Portrait Azura Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Lance Dancer bias is pretty high with me so basically expect all Dancers from Azura afterwards to be 5-Stars. At the time, Azura was one of two Dancer units. While I only had Olivia for a solid month or so, Azura granted me the help I needed with a strong Blue unit and a Dancer in one neat package and became a staple on dozens of teams after I got her (at least until I got more dancers later). Her offensive stats are good for a dancer and can help to dispatch red units thanks to her starting weapon. She just needs a little skill investment and Azura proves to be a great teammate for any team. ✯✯✯✯✯
11 Eirika Portrait Eirika Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Unlike most of the Sword unit base, Eirika is a little different. She has good enough stats to be a decent duelist, but she shines best as support. Her Sieglinde and Hone Spd 3 gives her allies two really useful buffs for offense. With her recent weapon refinement, she has easily risen in power since not only can she distribute buffs, but also copy them to power herself up. An interesting unit to have and in my opinion one that can give your team some extra power if your roster is small since you can obtain her at 4 stars. ✯✯✯✯
12 Ephraim Portrait Ephraim Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Lance I was lucky to obtain Ephraim literally right after Eirika. Solid bulk and attack on top of a rather interesting refine skill, Ephraim is both supportive and offensive. He is still quite vulnerable to mages, but considering the massive benefits he can give with the right skill inheritance, it is hard not to recommend him even if he is 5-Star locked. ✯✯✯✯
13 Lilina Portrait Lilina Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Fire Tome Lilina was once my Pity-Breaking unit. Her starting kit is lackluster and back before she got demoted in pull categories, she was very unassuming since her only main perk was her huge Atk stat which could hit enemies with one large, grand attack, but that is about it due to her low Spd. However, Lilina now has a new lease on life with Forblaze in her repertoire, with the incredible One-Shot potential against nearly all in the meta who do not bear a strong enough Res to tank it. With a potential 65 Atk on initiation, few can survive or leave a battle against her unscathed. I can now say I am happy to have a +2 5 Star Lilina. ✯✯✯✯
14 Sharena Portrait Sharena Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Lance Sharena is the other Lord character of the game alongside her brother. At the very least, she has less competition than Alfonse in her weapon type and her only real glaring weakness is her Resistance. She does have Threaten Atk 2 in Fensalir so she does have the ability to be a Threaten debuffer unit, but with the rise of Ploy and Panic skills, Sharena is decent at best and like Alfonse, is 5-Stars only because of story. ✯✯✯
15 Karel Portrait Karel Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword To be honest, I often forget that I have Karel. He does not stand out from other potent sword units. He is a speedy unit and thanks to his recent Legendary Weapon, he has grown a little, but still not where near Ayra and Mia's league. With an effect Refine to Nameless Blade, it essentially is a stronger version of his original Wo Dao+ with special acceleration added. Fir certainly needed the blade more than her uncle, but Karel uses it with better proficiency. ✯✯✯
16 Ryoma Portrait Ryoma Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Okay, where to start with Ryoma. Built in Distant Counter to his legendary weapon and great stat line that gives him better flexibility with builds, Ryoma can serve any task and serve it well unlike most units with similar balance stats. Ryoma requires a TON of investments to shine in his role, whatever role you choose for him, but given the sheer flexibility he has at being both a frontline Player Phase unit to a baiting Enemy Phase unit, Ryoma is a Jack-Of-All-Trades in Heroes done right. ✯✯✯✯✯
17 Anna Portrait Anna Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Axe After 3 months of trying to get a good 5-Star green unit, I upgraded Anna to 5 to fill that gap. Anna is in my opinion the best of the Askr Unit trio. Excellent Speed and a quirky and powerful personal axe, Anna was my Green unit for a very, very long time. Anna could even be a high tier character if she was allowed to Merge. She could never be a broken unit by any means if she got merging capabilities, but I could easily say that she has the potential to be a 4-Star rating in my book if she could. Till then, she is stuck as average as more and more units are introduced and outperform her. ✯✯✯
18 Robin (F) Portrait RobinF Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Wind Tome Statwise, she is Male Robin without Boon/Banes and is Green. She was a pretty early promote during at time where I was desperate for a green unit and she sadly could not fulfill that need. Her only mainstay on my Arena Assault team is her Gronnwolf+ tome which I use to dispatch Cavalry teams. Back then she was one of two that could, but now I have a few more units that are better. ✯✯
19 Nino Portrait Nino Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Wind Tome Now Nino is the first true Green unit who fulfilled my needs. Ease of access and a good offensive stat line made Nino my Green unit for months on end. Her high speed and decent attack made her an overall solid unit for my Arena teams and is still regularly used in Arena Assault. If you are looking for a 4-Star Green unit to promote, Nino is a unit I highly endorse. ✯✯✯✯
20 Faye Portrait Faye Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Bow Faye is pretty different from other Archers in Heroes. She lacks Speed and Attack, but instead has tremendous bulk. She is best served as an Anti-Mage unit. Firesweep Bow+ at least allows her to engage enemy units without retaliation. Locked behind 5-Stars, Faye is not a character I would go running to get, but you will find a very unique unit out of her if you manage to obtain her. ✯✯✯
21 Tiki (Young) Portrait TikiYoung Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Fire Breath Young Tiki, like Nowi, was tremendously boosted by Weapon Refinement and her dragon status has brought her into a new league of her own. Unfortunately, she is not that easy to obtain, but if you CAN snag a copy of her, like Nowi, she is a powerful unit who can smash through teams with ease, especially if you can give her the skill foddered to her. ✯✯✯✯✯
22 Michalis Portrait Michalis Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Axe Michalis was my only Flying unit at 5-Stars for a long, long time. He is a slow, yet bulky flying unit who can negate his weaknesses thanks to his own Iote's Shield. However, he was another sleeping Grand Hero Battle unit who became immensely powerful thanks to Weapon Refinement. His already powerful Hauteclere now destroys enemies thanks to its cooldown reduction and power increase upon skill activation. While just slightly inferior to Minerva, he is still no joke and should be taken seriously when seen. ✯✯✯✯
23 Boey Portrait Boey Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Wind Tome Boey is a bulky Green Mage, making him much different than a majority of Green Tome users in the game. Unfortunately his low attack and low resistance makes him ill suited to counter any mage threats, but he at least can perform half-decent against most blue units. ✯✯✯
24 Mae Portrait Mae Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Thunder Tome Mae actually has pretty strong Atk, just only outclassed by Lilina and Sanaki. With her strong Resistance, she is a pretty good Mage duelist, though her decent speed means that she cannot fully capitalize on this. While she has the Def of paper, she can at least equally dispatch low resistance enemies. Decent pull and can be worth upgrading. ✯✯✯
25 Xander Portrait Xander Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Sword Xander has Distant Counter in his base weapon which makes him already a good unit on top of his Cavalier status. With his ease of obtainment from GHB, Xander is a great unit for any player. Unfortunately he does not quite standout from other Distant Counter weapon users, I still highly recommend him as I still use him in Arenas and still remain in the top 30% of Arena tiers. ✯✯✯
26 Masked Marth Portrait Marth (Masked) Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Basically just alternative art Lucina. Has all the perks of Lucina and is much easier to obtain but cannot have Boon/Bane and has no starting skills. ✯✯✯✯
27 Katarina Portrait Katarina Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Fire Tome Katarina is one of the strongest red mages in the game thanks to her respectable Attack and Speed and solid Resistance. She is not really suited for her default tome but if she can inherit the red Blade tome or Raven Tome, Katarina can truly shine like mine does now. ✯✯✯✯
28 Clarisse Portrait Clarisse Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Bow Clarisse starts off as a good debuffing archer. She can work with most common offensive bow sets, though she does not outshine any common offensive bow users. It also does not help that her Grand Hero Battle status limits the ability to obtain her and prevents her from obtaining IVs. Nonetheless, she is useable and can be built easily on a budget. ✯✯✯
29 Robin (Summer) Portrait Robin Summer Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Lance My first seasonal unit and Robin was and is barely used unless I run out of lance users in Arena. She does, however, have an extensive amount of usage when training as her valuable Lance Valor skill accelerates SP gain, allowing my units to quickly grow and learn the skills I am intending on having them learn. For that reason alone, she is one of my most used units, though only for training. ✯✯✯
30 Tobin Portrait Tobin Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Tobin has only found usage in Arena Assault where he is my usual Hector counter. Unfortunately, Tobin requires a TON of investment to even be a decent unit outside of it and even then he is not good enough to compete with the main powerhouses of the Sword meta. I still use him, but he is not particularly good. ✯✯
31 Luke Portrait Luke Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Sword Luke is not a top tier Cavalier unit by any means, but his base kit alone allows him to start on the right foot to at least be useful. Brave Sword+ is a useful sword on him and he performs fantastically as a player turn character. ✯✯✯✯
32 Camus Portrait Camus Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Lance Camus is basically the Lance version of Xander in terms of GHB units. Solid stats across the board, his only weakness is tomes and strong green units. With a little bit of investment and time, Camus works wonderfully for any F2P player and highly recommend unlocking his potential. ✯✯✯✯
33 Clive Portrait Clive Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Lance Clive is a bulky, tanky blue cavalier with decent attack. Sadly I cannot say that he exceeds the likes of Camus or many other more easily obtained Lance Cavaliers. He requires a LOT of investment to be good and even then, he will not outperform anyone. He suffers from his limited availability and inability to gain IVs. He's on the bench for the most part in my roster. ✯✯
34 Berkut Portrait Berkut Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Lance Berkut is one of my favorite Shadows of Valentia characters and sadly, his Heroes incarnation does not do him justice. Low speed and resistance really hurts him despite the strong physical bulk and decent attack. Thankfully his special weapon gives him good bulk, but it still does not offset that speed. Decent to use, but I cannot recommend him. ✯✯✯
35 Lyn (Brave) Portrait Lyn Brave Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Bow Oh boy, where do I start with Brave Lyn? You know already how powerful she is. You probably cannot go through any Arena battle set or Arena Assault without seeing her at lease once or worse, all battles. Absurdly powerful player turn character, does not need much outside inheritance aside from Brave Bow+. I've used my free Brave Lyn in nearly every team since I got her, a staple on my Arena and Tempest Trial team. Let me be clear, she is stupidly broken and the meta shifted in major ways starting with her presence alone. ✯✯✯✯✯
36 Tharja Portrait Tharja Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Fire Tome Tharja is the most well known Red Blade Tome user thanks to her kit already coming with the skill. With solid ATK and SPD and ability to obtain at 4-Stars, she is another great investment for both 4 Star +10 Merge or a straight 5 Star merge. Her only downside is the lower Atk and less Res, but is in someway comparable to Nino. Still worth it if you got her. ✯✯✯✯
37 Lucina (Brave) Portrait Lucina Brave Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Lance As the second Brave unit in my collection, Brave Lucina is on a lot of teams to fulfill particular needs. In particular, Brave Lucina is a supportive unit thanks to her Geirskogul weapon. While it limits her to benefiting physical units, in the end, Brave Lucina is a formidable unit not only as a supporting unit, but also a competent combatant herself. ✯✯✯✯✯
38 Ursula Portrait Ursula Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Thunder Tome Ursula for a time was on my Cavalry team strictly to deal with enemy Cavalry units herself. Unfortunately that is her only real strength as the more infamous Blue Cavalry units simply outclass her. I still use her regularly in Arena Assault when facing an all Cavalry Team that lacks green units. She can ORKO Brave Lyn with general reliability and a good buffing team behind her to clean up the reast. ✯✯✯
39 Nephenee Portrait Nephenee Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Lance Nephenee is an awesome offensive unit and has a solid base kit to let her be used from the get go. She faces some stiff competition from better Blue units in the meta when it comes to fulfilling roles, but Nephenee is no slouch, especially with good teammates. ✯✯✯✯
40 Elincia Portrait Elincia Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Sword Quite possibly the strongest Flying unit in the game. She has an impressive Offensive statline that compliments her signature weapon, Amiti, letting her double attack like a brave weapon, but without as much speed penalty. With an incredibly powerful base skill set, with some minor inheritance, Elincia is a must have for any Flying team and was worth sniping to have in my army. ✯✯✯✯✯
41 Black Knight Portrait Black Knight Heroes Heroes Armored FEH Sword Out of all of the Tempest Trial reward units, the Black Knight is probably the most used one thus far. Has the perks of an Armor unit for Armor team, has Distant Counter in Alondite, and is the only other TT unit aside from Masked Marth to get more than two copies (if you bought the orb bundle). He has allowed me to start building armor teams and he is a constant presence in them. He is a common find on defense teams so usually I have to plan on how to deal with him because he hurts either way. ✯✯✯✯
42 Cordelia Portrait Cordelia Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Lance From the beginning, Cordelia has been a strong unit thanks to her great base kit and stats to make the most of it as a player turn offensive unit. She is another great investment character if you can pull her even at 4 Stars and promote. ✯✯✯✯
43 Shigure (Performing) Portrait Shigure Performing Arts Heroes Infantry FEH Thunder Tome Shigure is different from my other Dancers in my army as he is a ranged dancer. His dancing is powered by his exclusive B skill and for the most part is interesting. He does have the perk of making my Blue Tome users learn faster with his B Tome Valor skill. Useful for training and general usage. ✯✯✯✯✯
44 Felicia Portrait Felicia Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Dagger I promoted Felicia on a whim, but what I found was a great mage check and one of my go to Reinhardt check. She got a power boost thanks to her new Legendary Weapon to make her an even harder Mage Check. While her stats do not make her THAT powerful, I still would recommend her for that niche and to laugh on the storm of Mages who dare to try and attack her only to inflict nothing while she destroys them in return (or at least the non Raven Tome users.) ✯✯✯
45 Sigurd Portrait Sigurd Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Sword Sigurd is another example of Jack-of-All-Trades done properly with a strong BST and a kit that leaves so much room to play around with. From Tanky to Bruiser to so much more, Sigurd has exceeded all of my expectations and with only a little more investment, he replaced Xander on my Arena defense team. ✯✯✯✯✯
46 Marth Portrait Marth Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Poster boy of the series, Marth was mostly a pity breaker for many players as his lukewarm stats did not allow him to shine as a Red unit or as a Falchion user either. However, the Archanea Falchion refine finally gave him the boost he needed to become a powerful Drive bot for his teammates. Also, his middling stats makes him extremely versatile. While not the best, he is at least in a better spot than he was in the past and is viable on certain teams. ✯✯✯✯
47 Saber Portrait Saber Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Another taskmaster unit, Saber is a rarely used unit. Nonetheless, he can certainly find usage on any team depending on how you wish to build him. That being said, mine is still using his base build which is a tank. Probably will not encounter him anytime on my team. ✯✯✯
48 Cecilia Portrait Cecilia Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Wind Tome For a time, Cecilia was the only Green Mage Cavalry unit. Mobility and high attack are her game as she tends to go for a single powerful nuke since her speed is low. A great investment if you snag a good IV spread and her ease of accessibility do allow her to be integrated into any team granted she is given some investment in outside skills. ✯✯✯✯
49 Arvis Portrait Arvis Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Fire Tome Arvis is an interesting GHB unit as he was the first one to have a unique skill. In his case, his Recover Ring, which gives him a 10 HP recovery every turn. Thanks to a pretty strong ATK and RES spread, Arvis is a powerful Red Mage and is well worth the investment to get his exclusive Valflame tome allows him to become a strong offensive unit while carrying debuffing from the tome and healing with a Recover Ring/Ardent Sacrifice combo. ✯✯✯✯
50 Arden Portrait Arden Heroes Heroes Armored FEH Sword I initially thought I would never use him after obtaining him, but Arden has always managed to stay relevant on some teams and battles in Arena Assault. Strong and tough, he has high ATK and the largest HP pool on top of a respectable DEF, Arden is a physical wall through and through. Sure he is shredded by mages, but I have to admit that Arden is not a unit I like facing in the rare times I see him. ✯✯✯✯
51 Camilla Portrait Camilla Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Axe Outshined as a Brave Axe user by Cherche, Camilla took on a new identity with her new personal Axe, becoming a strong offensive general with strong stat boost to herself on Cavalry/Flying teams and with a refine, boosts her allies. Camilla is new and has a new lease on life, but has not quite leaped up in tiers. She's above average and worth putting in work if you want to. ✯✯✯✯
52 Reinhardt Portrait Reinhardt Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Thunder Tome What hasn't been said already about Reinhardt? He's obnoxiously strong and present in the meta thanks to Dire Thunder, making him a strong Brave Tome Cavalry unit. Like Brave Lyn, expect to build characters specifically to counter him. Nothing is worse than facing 7 consecutive teams with a Reinhardt on them like I have in the past. But I suppose it is okay because I too now use the Reinhardt. ✯✯✯✯✯
53 Mist Portrait Mist Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Staff For the most part, staff users are a rarity to encounter. Mist is among the rarest to find as she lacks the stats to be offensive by any means, though at the very least she has decent bulk. Most staff users in my army are strictly used for training just to keep allies going, especially during Chain Challenges. Mist stays relevant mostly for that reason alone. ✯✯
54 Joshua Portrait Joshua Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Another sword unit with balanced stats. Not quite as powerful for defense or hyper offense, but nonetheless has a complementary stat spread that makes him perfectly capable for usage in just about any mode. However, safe to say that it takes very little to the imagination when coming up with counters for him. Not bad, but not great. ✯✯✯
55 Fjorm Portrait Fjorm Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Lance Fjorm is the fourth main protagonist unit that every player received and she's a gem. She is the first purely defensive character and the only one I have ever fully run a defensive special on just because how good and powerful it is on top her Distant Counter Leiptr lance. While strong green melee units or a Brave Lyn can shut her down, Fjorm is still a great unit that everyone should use. ✯✯✯✯✯
56 Setsuna Portrait Setsuna Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Bow Once I snagged a second 5-Star Klein, it was an easy choice to promote Setsuna and give Brave Bow+ to her. High speed and a modest attack means that she can actually Quad attack most people with a Brave Bow. Her only downside is her weak defensive stats and the plethora of Distant Counter skill and weapon user. Still my Birthright waifu is still useable in just about any situation. ✯✯✯✯
57 Effie Portrait Effie Heroes Heroes Armored FEH Lance Like Setsuna, she was an easy promote after I snagged a second 5-Star Cordelia. Though slow, her access to Wary Fighter mitigates that effect. Topped with a high defense and an impressively high Attack, she is an awesome Brave Lance+ user and a powerful Armored unit overall. ✯✯✯✯✯
58 Genny Portrait Genny Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Staff Genny was the start of having Staff users appear on Arena teams. Wrathful Staff is an incredibly useful skill that finally allowed staff users to get much needed power to be used offensively while maintaining their ability to heal. On top of the Dazzle Refine, she began the Razzle Dazzle staff units that appear on teams nowadays. She is worth pulling if not for herself, but also to give her unique skill to other Staff users. ✯✯✯✯
59 Soleil Portrait Soleil Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword With Soleil came her Firesweep Sword and we all know how obnoxious it is to play defensively against them. Soleil is a budget Ayra/Mia with impressive unboosted base attack and serviceable speed. I really enjoy using Soleil whenever I can. ✯✯✯✯✯
60 Beruka Portrait Beruka Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Axe With sky high Defense and HP, Beruka is an odd defensive flier amongst the plethora of offensive ones. With an Iote's Shield, she can mitigate her only true weakness save strong Red Mages. Unfortunately, she lacks the power to tank hits and retaliate. Needless to say she is a rarity in the arenas but you can find something special if you decide to use her, more for laughs than a serious unit. ✯✯
61 Soren Portrait Soren Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Wind Tome My initial impression of Soren was less than stellar as he did not quite reach Nino's level of usability, but his new Legendary Tome has changed that. With Chill Attack installed to Wind Brand, he is a powerful debuffing unit and pretty versatile overall. I am happy that one of my favorite Tellius characters has reached the level he currently has. ✯✯✯✯
62 Innes Portrait Innes Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Bow Innes has the offensive spread to be a solid attacking unit. A bit of an oddity with his high Resistance, he is a great mage check and receives boosts with allies adjacent to him like an Owl tome user. Compliment him with a Bond Skill and allies to support him and Innes gains tons of synergy from tight unit play. ✯✯✯✯
63 Selena Portrait Selena Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Selena was promoted only because she is my Awakening daughter. Like Tobin, I use her primarily to counter Hectors, Amelias, and Grima Robins. Outside of her specialized role, she really has nothing going for her since her Attack is pretty low despite high speed and defenses. ✯✯
64 Oboro Portrait Oboro Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Lance Oboro is my Red Armor check so she deals with Black Knight, Zelgius, Zephiel, and Arden. She has incredibly high defenses to help her deal with her Armor enemies and with a special proc, she can dish back strong damage back at them. A pretty interesting niche for my army, but only for counterpicking. ✯✯
65 Celica Portrait Celica Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Fire Tome Standing at the pinnacle of offensive Red Tome Infantry units is Celica is without question the most powerful Red Mage in the game thanks to Ragnarok. While she is not THE strongest Red Mage, she a solid Red Mage with strong Atk and Spd. Personally, I run Renewal 3 to keep her health always refreshed so she can exploit her tome and Celica has carved a role as my favorite Red Tome user in the game. ✯✯✯✯✯
66 Micaiah Portrait Micaiah Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Thunder Tome While Cavalry and Armor units run rampant in Arenas, Micaiah is my all around potent check for these units thanks to Thani. While she retains her low speed growths like in Radiant Dawn, her role in my army as a unit check means that she OHKO most of the competition. ✯✯✯✯✯
67 Corrin (New Year) Portrait Corrin Happy New Year Heroes Infantry FEH Bow Corrin deviates from most of my Archers as he goes for bulk rather than oppressive offense. His supportive Hama Ya+ does let him synergize with allies, but other than the fact that he is free, I really do not find much useage out of him. ✯✯
68 Sonya Portrait Sonya Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Wind Tome Sonya may not be explosive in terms of raw damage, Dark Excalibur gives her that additional explosiveness she needs to come out on top and decimate most of her enemies. Her get-go kit is set up for her to excel in her role and I have no real complaints to say about her other than the standard mage low defense. ✯✯✯✯
69 Eirika (Anamnesis Lady) Portrait Eirika Anamnesis Lady Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Fire Tome I will be completely honest, I was not going for Anamnesis Lady Eirika in her banner. While she was the only one I got from that banner pulls, she has a special place in my army as my sole Red Mage Cavalry Unit. Gleipnir grants her Atk and Spd when initiating on full health enemies so she is a great initiator and can make usage of those bonuses on top of cavalry buffs to be a potent unit on any Calvalry team ✯✯✯✯✯
70 Alm Portrait Alm Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Alm is a true Cinderella Story. Out of the 6 Falchion users in the game, Alm was without question the worst of them in terms of stat spread. When all Falchion users got a refinement, all were pretty good, but Alm got the greatest gem, going from the bottom to the top thanks to his Valentian Refine. His strong Atk allows him to abuse the Brave effect his weapon has at full health and the Falchion's Renewal 3 means that he can fully abuse its effects to devastating effects against enemy teams. He has made short work of any Dragon teams and practically trivialized the Grima Robin Tempest Trial final boss. ✯✯✯✯✯
71 Xander (Summer) Portrait Xander Summer Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Axe As the lone Physical unit of the Nohrian Summer banner, Xander boasts the second highest raw Defense value for Axe units and has a serviceable attack, despite his rather low amount of armor and conventional weaponry appearance wise. With a good native skill set to compliment his stats, Xander performs well and is a pretty good Blue physical unit check for most of my Arena playtime. ✯✯✯
72 Gunnthrá Portrait Gunnthra Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Wind Tome Gunnthrá came to me a month after I tried to snipe for her and she has become an extremely important unit in my army, even being more used than her sister in most battles. Her ability to cripple enemies through her Slot B skill, superior mobility and attack range, and Legendary Status makes her an incredibly powerful mage cavalry unit that easily outclasses her current competition for that role, Cecilia ✯✯✯✯✯
73 Caeda Portrait Caeda Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Sword Once upon a time, Caeda was considered a joke of a Pegasus Knight, especially when compared to her fellow Sword Flier Elincia and even Palla. However, that all changed with her new Wing Sword and its refinement, effectively allowing her the ability to shut down Cavalry and Armor units. Her only downside is her low attack, but if used for her unit killing niche, she can perform competently. ✯✯✯✯
74 Marisa Portrait Marisa Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Marisa shares a lot of traits with Joshua in terms of stat spread, making her a mixed bag of results depending on how you wish to build her. But like Joshua, she is held back by her Tempest Trial only unit status. Semi-decent unit but easily outclassed by other more powerful units. ✯✯✯
75 Azura (Performing) Portrait Azura Performing Arts Heroes Infantry FEH Axe Performing Azura was the one of the units I desired the most from the Performing Arts banner and she is easily the best Dancer in my army simply because of how powerful her personal axe is for its stat buffs on her singing. She is without a doubt the dancer everyone should get and I do feel a bit sad for those who do not have this powerful support character in their army. ✯✯✯✯✯
76 Amelia Portrait Amelia Heroes Heroes Armored FEH Axe Armored units were only scary because of their superior defenses and high BST, balanced by their low movement. Then everything changed when Amelia was introduced. Armor March allowed these hulking walls to trot down the field with an additional space to their movement. Despite her innocent appearance, she had effectively begun the rise of Armor teams that can easily wipe out any unfortunate team that is not prepared to deal with them. ✯✯✯✯✯
77 Ninian Portrait Ninian Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Thunder Breath Ninian is an interesting Dancer as she is also a Dragon unit as well. Though her base kit comes with a skill to support dragons, she can be slightly changed through skill inheritance to support just about any team. Plus she's beautiful and the one unit I tried at every opportunity to pull over the year (bonus I got two in the same Orb board) ✯✯✯✯✯
78 Eliwood (Valentine) Portrait Eliwood Valentines Heroes Armored FEH Lance Unfortunately for me, Valentine Eliwood is the only Valentine unit I got. But in general, the Valentines set comes with great Cavalry and Armored units and Eliwood is no exception. While he is weaker than the others since he has limited numbers, he still has the flexibility in his stat spread to fulfill a plethora of roles. Being an Armored unit is not a bad thing either. ✯✯✯✯
79 Cherche Portrait Cherche Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Axe Cherche is a powerful Flying Green unit and completely outclasses Camila as a Brave Axe user. Unfortunately for me, I do not have the ability to give her Brave Axe+. Nevertheless, I've see the power she wields in that regard and even with a normal Brave Axe, she is still quite powerful. Overall, Cherche is one of those units who needs a lot of outside investments to shine, but will be worth the effort if you do. ✯✯✯✯
80 Hinoka Portrait Hinoka Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Lance As an innate Brave Lance+ user, Hinoka cannot stand up to Cordelia, whose better statline complements it better. Hinoka received her named spear and is now an interesting supportive flying unit, both for flying and infantry teams. Most notable is her originally exclusive Hone Fliers which solidifies her role as a supportive Flying unit that can hold her own as well. Though another unit got the skill, she is the only non-seasonal unit to have this skill. ✯✯✯✯
81 Raven Portrait Raven Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Axe While his new shiny Axe has a decent built in effect, if Refined, Raven is an absolutely terrifying offensive unit thanks to the refined Life and Death 3. Combine this with some choice skills, and Raven absolute terrorizes the battlefield with sheer brute strength. With a proper supportive team, Raven can smash through the competition with great vengeance and furious anger. ✯✯✯✯
82 Priscilla Portrait Priscilla Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Staff For the most part, Priscilla is a solid Cavalry Healer and because of her horse, she has better usage thanks to receiving horse buffs on a cavalry team. The only Cavalry Healer that outclasses her is Elise so coming in second is not all that bad and is much easier to secure than the Youngest Nohrian Princess. ✯✯✯✯
83 Ike (Legendary) Portrait Ike Vanguard Legend Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword The people spoke, and everyone now has Vanguard Ike in their roster. As such, there is no reason why you should not train him as he has DC on his Ragnell, has the powerful Radiant Aether, and is a Legendary Hero. Strong Base kit and solid statlines allows Ike to be a powerful ally. I have used him to moderate success, but mainly to help clear Chain Challenges as it is hard for any unit to challenge him there. ✯✯✯✯✯
84 Shiro Portrait Shiro Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Lance Shiro is a great duelist Lance user thanks to his solid Atk and Def stats. Thanks to Bright Naginata, he is best as a defensive unit. His only downfall is his low Speed and Resistances that leaves him vulnerable to Mages. Nontheless, he's seen a fair amount of usage, helping to deal with pesky Ayras. ✯✯✯✯
85 Dorcas Portrait Dorcas Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Axe Inflated BST when compared to most since he's a CYL unit, Dorcas is one heck of a unit. Holding the only DC Axe weapon currently and having a focused, but still good distribution of his stats, Dorcas is an immensely powerful unit worth obtaining as soon as possible. Sure he can be dealt with by a Mage, but buddy isn't going down without a fight. ✯✯✯✯✯
86 Oscar Portrait Oscar Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Lance Pity broken by Oscar does not make me feel happy, but working what I got leads to a pretty decent unit that just needs some outside investments to work. He's good and just needs a few investments put in, but I have better blue cavalry already, but I use him on occasion since obtaining him. There's better and more desirables out there that I would have rather have gotten from the Blue Category. ✯✯✯
87 Morgan Portrait MorganF Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Thunder Tome And thus my Awakening family is complete in Heroes. Morgan is the second Blue Mage Flying unit after Summer Corrin and has surprisingly good attack and res. Though she is easily downed by most Archers, she has enough uniqueness to standout even if she is not a broken character or a particular standout amongst the Blue Mage crew. ✯✯✯✯
88 Gerome Portrait Gerome Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Axe A Tempest Trial flying green axe is pretty special when compared to all other rewards given thus far. His Poleaxe finally gives us a cavalry effective Axe. So, he's my new Cavalry killer and my counterpick for Legendary Ephraim, Camus, and Reinhardt. ✯✯✯
89 Zephiel Portrait Zephiel Heroes Heroes Armored FEH Sword For a time, Zephiel boasted the highest HP until Arden dethroned him. Nevertheless, with his strong Eckesachs with a respectable Atk and strong Defense, he has all the standard Armor strengths with the standard low Res in exchange. With Amelia in my army, Zephiel has found life in this game as a strong mobile tank that crushes the opposition. ✯✯✯✯
90 Peri Portrait Peri Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Lance Stabby cotton candy hair here retains her surprisingly good Res stat from Fates as a good Cavalry ploy using unit. Though outcompeted by many other blue cavalry units, Peri still has some usage in my army more for giggles than anything. Handle with care and perhaps she can surprise you here and there. ✯✯✯
91 Sharena (Spring) Portrait Sharena Hare Heroes Infantry FEH Wind Tome For some reason and luck, I was able to get two copies of her from my time pulling from the banner. Her stats offensively make her similar to Nino and Summer Elise, but her exclusive weapon gives her a Blizzard-like debuff, which leads to some interesting situations. I am very hoppy to have her in my army and for the Voting Gauntlet. Sadly, I only had one round to reap those benefits, but hey she still is used regularly. ✯✯✯✯
92 Kagero (Spring) Portrait Kagero Hare Heroes Flying FEH Dagger Everyone's favorite Ninjabbit is certainly a unique unit unlike any seen before. A dagger-flier has interesting applications and I found her to be a rather reliable unit during time spent using her in Arenas, Arena Assault, and the Voting Gauntlet. My Flier team has gotten much more interesting thanks to her presence and her ability to debuff has opened new tactics in battle. ✯✯✯✯
93 Xander (Spring) Portrait Xander Spring Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Lance It is an interesting feeling to be pity broken by a Season Focus unit on their banner, but Spring Xander accomplished that when I was trying for Spring Lucina. His only real downside is that he has abysmal attack in exchange for his pretty decent bulk. Unfortunately this means that both he and his enemy are going to be slowly poking each other to death. For the most part, he can be an interesting regenerative unit and be the wall that IS perhaps wanted him to be, but personally, I can see why many people do not use him. Basically the worst Seasonal unit of them all, and that is something that is truly unique.
94 Est Portrait Est Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Lance A flier with high attack and resistance is an interesting redistribution of stats since most rely on Speed rather than bulk. Est is not that great with her base kit, but with outside investments, her power grows. Ironically, I got pity broken by an 5-Star Abel, but thankfully, the decision fodder Brave Lance+ to her made it hurt less. Now she's a terrorizing initiating bruiser unit. Perhaps its fitting that she got her best weapon from her lover. It is not a set that everyone can use, but boy can she compete in the higher tiers with good teammates. Without Brave Lance+, I'd put her at around 3 stars, maybe 2. But for the sake of the typical Brave Build that is on her whenever she does appear in arenas, she's 4 stars. Low priority until you can secure a way to give her Brave Lance+. ✯✯✯✯
95 Nanna Portrait Nanna Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Staff Like Pricilla, Nanna is a strong second place Cavalry Healer to Elise, but with the slight twist of having her own unique staff, Restore, which has a Harsh Command effect when she heals. With a standard Razzle Dazzle build, Nanna is a decent unit all around. ✯✯✯✯
96 Ike Portrait Ike Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword In a twist of fate, I got Ike, but after his Legendary version. Distant Counter and a great starting kit lets Ike be a strong unit for immediate use. Sadly, he is outshined ironically by himself. Legendary Ike has an even better starting kit and better set up. Still, now that I have finally gotten my hands on Ike, my Lord collection is nearing completion. ✯✯✯✯
97 Olivia Portrait Olivia Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword And finally Olivia, the OG dancer of my army and for many other players out there. There is a lot that goes right for Olivia as a dancer in terms of stat spread. With the right inheritance, it is worth putting in the time to make her a great dancer for any army. If you have a good IV one or even just the neutral stat one handed to players at the start of the game's life, she's worth upgrading. ✯✯✯✯✯
98 Leif Portrait Leif Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Welcome one of the best units for Chain Challenges and Tempest Trials. Off the bat, S Drink is great for those modes, allowing him to start each new map anew and accelerate his Special Counter. Outside of those modes, take another Skill B. His weapon is good for taking out strong Def stat enemies who often favor it over Res. Unfortunately, this does leave him susceptible to many Dragon units who tend to balance both, but otherwise, Leif is a great unit to obtain. ✯✯✯✯
99 Saias Portrait Saias Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Thunder Tome Saias matches toe to toe with Arvis with stat spread and default tomes. Personally, I think Blue tome is more beneficial given their higher prevalence in the meta. Unfortunately, he lacks the Recover Ring his father has, but still works like him, being both offensive and supportive with good starting skill and their tomes. Well worth upgrading to get that ability as well as the ability to shoot Solar Beams. ✯✯✯✯
100 Tiki (Adult) Portrait Tiki Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Fire Breath Taking the place of the 100th unit promoted to 5 Stars is Adult Tiki and the second Dragon unit who uses Lightning Breath naturally. With an optimal build, Adult Tiki is a powerful asset to any army and a fairly common unit in high tier teams. If you do not pack a Falchion user, you are going to struggle. Much more easily accessible than her younger variation, Adult Tiki is a good long term investment for anyone. ✯✯✯✯✯
101 Oliver Portrait Oliver Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Thunder Tome An epitome of beauty, of course Oliver was meant to be the leading character of the next 100 Heroes. While Oliver was gracious enough to allow me to reach his perfect Rarity level,he remains a humble unit as expected of a man of his splendor, he is a surprisingly resistant mage and a capable combatant, but not too strong that it overshadows the more plebeian members of the heroes roster. While he is by not as noteworthy in offense compared to high tier Blue Mages, he easily exceeds them in beauty and aesthetics. ✯✯
102 Lloyd Portrait Lloyd Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Even with his recent Refine, Lloyd has remained relatively the same, a magically bulky sword unit who now benefits from fighting alongside Magic users. He has gone up, but still not quite viable enough to see him on Defensive Arena teams. Still a workable unit, but not the best GHB unit to promote first. ✯✯✯
103 Finn Portrait Finn Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Lance Finn is a Tempest Trial reward that is surprisingly useful. His stats compliment his Brave Lance and his overall stats are great for dueling. Though he is restricted to Tempest Trial rewards, he nonetheless takes just a little bit of outside investments to be viable and useful. If you have him, he's worth giving some attention. ✯✯✯✯
104 Ayra Portrait Ayra Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword The undisputed Sword Queen, Ayra is an insane unit and literally was my free unit from the 4/21/18 Skill banner. All speedy sword units are compared to her as I have made it clear in several other units obtained before her. Her incredible speed and incredibly complementary weapon effect leaves very little room for anyone to compete with this monster of a unit. Though mine is -Atk, it's +Spd, and that more than makes up for that bane. She's everywhere and you best prepare good bulky units if you face her. ✯✯✯✯✯
105 Navarre Portrait Navarre Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Navarre is one of my favorite units in all of FE and partially due to his appearance in Warriors is why he was worked on and finally chosen to promote. Cursed as a GHB unit and basically competing with many other fast sword users with IVs makes him a hard sell. It is unfortunate that I literally had just gotten his superior just moments before making him but hey, he still can be used. ✯✯✯
106 Kana (Female) Portrait Female Kana Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Wind Breath My first Green Dragon and also the one that is my precious cinnamon bun. Kana is a strong Green dragon with a well spread statline that practically allows her to perform well in all roles. She is ready to support her fellow dragons off the bat and be strong herself. Other than her crippling fear of Falchions and Binding Blades, Kana is still a fine unit to have in your army if you can do the standard Dragon unit investments. Also Kana > Morgan in terms of a daughter. ✯✯✯✯✯
107 Hinoka (Blue Sky Princess) Portrait Hinoka WOF Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Bow Hinoka got a Kinshi Knight variant which is interesting to say the least. She uses the very weapon she is weak to, which is problematic in itself since she loses to all Bow units unless she has Iote's shield. Her base kit screams Flier team, but she can find life outside of one as well as a strong leading commander unit. ✯✯✯✯
108 Corrin (Male) Portrait CorrinM Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword With his daughter introduced in to the game and present in the army, it was time for daddy to also Rank Up. I do not see a whole lot wrong with him, but that also makes Male Corrin sort of a weird Sword unit that does not quite fit in with the others who have defined roles. The Yato is a pretty disappointing weapon from the beginning, but its recent refine has boosted him a bit, allowing him to buff his Ally Support, making some truly terrifying combinations with other strong units. ✯✯✯✯
109 Inigo (Performing) Portrait Inigo Performing Arts Heroes Infantry FEH Wind Tome Another ranged dancer introduced the same time as Shigure, Performing Inigo is merely another dancer in my army. I find his applications to be interesting and he does have his Gale Dance to make his dancing more powerful, but when compared to Performing Azura, he is much more inferior. Still it does not diminish his usability as a dancer. ✯✯✯✯✯
110 Henry (Halloween) Portrait Henry Trick Or Defeat Heroes Armored FEH Wind Tome Halloween Henry is fittingly an odd ball being an Armored Mage, the first of his kind. He is superior to his vanilla version as a result and is also starkly different. With better Atk, Spd, and Res than his normal form, Halloween Henry brought something new to the table and is a uncommon, but still somewhat used armored unit. ✯✯✯✯
111 Kaze Kaze Heroes Portrait Heroes Infantry FEH Dagger As a free unit given out during Golden Week upon release, he unfortunately had low availability and no Boon/Banes, but now that he is in the Summoning lot, Kaze has more options for stat distributions to make him more efficient. He now rivals Felicia as a good anti-mage unit that can be pulled with regularity, unlike Halloween Sakura ✯✯✯
112 Clair Portrait Clair Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Lance Like Caeda, Clair received a boost with her new weapon Rhomphaia, allowing her to be an cavalry and armored killer. Again, she is by no means a powerful unit, but has received some help to leave mediocrity. She can make usage of her strong speed and resistance for some strong Iceberg attacks, but her low attack leaves much to desire. ✯✯✯
113 Hardin Portrait Hardin Dark Emperor Heroes Heroes Armored FEH Lance Hardin is an incredibly potent armor unit, even when compared to the plethora of others of his kind. Great mixed bulk, great base kit and Distant Counter weapon, Hardin is a force to be reckoned with. He was not a unit I was dying to have, despite knowing how powerful he actually is, but having him in my army makes me a much more dangerous player to face in the Arenas. ✯✯✯✯✯
114 Chrom (Knight Exalt) Portrait Chrom Knight Exalt Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Sword I technically got him before I 5-starred his vanilla version, but Exalt Chrom is a Horse Falchion user, allowing him to counter the likes of Grima and Myrrh. High Attack and good Defense makes him a powerful mobile dragon killer tank. Unfortunately his unique Falchion has a pretty lackluster effect since maintaining his health to 100% is difficult and since his Falchion does not have the Renewal effect, he cannot self maintain it. Still, would recommend using if you have. ✯✯✯✯
115 Lene Portrait Lene Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword And after a year, we finally got a new Red Dancer, Lene and she's about as good as you'd expect because she is one. Since she has one of the best Stat Dance moves with Firestorm, boosting Atk and Spd of her danced allies, she is a great addition to the game. For those who need to train their Sword units, she is basically a readily available Performing Shigure with innate Sword Valor. ✯✯✯✯✯
116 Lissa Portrait Lissa Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Staff Lissa is a budget unit through and through. She is not the strongest staff user nor the most potent healer, but she does have Rehabilitate, which was once the most powerful healing support in the game. Nowadays, she is outclassed by other infantry units for Wrathful staff, but does have a half-decent base kit and is a free unit who works decently with neutral IVs. She is certainly not delicate with good defensive stats, but otherwise not too impressive when compared to other clerics in the game. ✯✯
117 Chrom Portrait Chrom Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Chrom is best run as a Brave Sword+ unit or a Falchion Healer as either he relies on his strong Atk and poor Spd to make full usage of Brave Sword+ or his gigantic HP pool to be a Reciprocal Aid healer. Mine is the healer variant so for pure healing, he is the best of the lot, though I suppose it is fitting that his daughter is better than him for offense with the Falchion. Nonetheless, Chrom can still find life in my army. ✯✯✯
118 Fae Portrait Fae Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Wind Breath The first and only Green Dragon unit on release, Fae is a bulky Dragon who prefers operating in the enemy phase. Granted that I do not have an optimal one, but she is nonetheless carrying a lot of potential if you are willing to make her premium build. Even a semi-premium build can lead to good results so do with her what you will. ✯✯✯✯✯
119 Julius Portrait Julius Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Fire Tome Several characters are defined by their weapon and Julius is one of them. Loptus handles anything that does not deal effective damage to Dragons by reducing the Atk stat by 6, which is a pretty hefty drop. Stronger than his father, Julius is not a unit to be trifled with. However his only weakness is his Free Unit status. He still is a worthy investment to those willing to put in the time. ✯✯✯✯
120 Hana Portrait Hana Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Hana is my first true Premium Building unit and the first unit I intend to 5 Star +10 once I finish making everyone else a 5 Star. Hana is a hyper offense character, preferring to go all in with strong Player phase offense with her solid Atk and Spd stats. Mine runs Firesweep Sword+ to ensure that she can safely combat any enemy and demolish them without worrying of retaliation. Either she is going to kill them, or she is not going to approach them. Well worth the effort if you want to build an expensive unit. ✯✯✯✯
121 Mia Portrait Mia Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Mia is another Ayra with high spd and atk. While Ayra still holds the title as the Apex Infantry Sword unit, Mia is a close second. While she needs to rely on a special to truly bloom, she is still a great Red Unit for those who can get her, especially those who are lacking an Ayra. ✯✯✯✯✯
122 Tharja (Bride) Tharja (Bridal Bloom) Heroes portrait Heroes Infantry FEH Fire Tome Like many units who get new version, Bridal Tharja is a more optimized version of her normal form. With the power of a warhead and the defenses of wet tissue, Bridal Tharja's objective is clear, kill you swiftly before you have a chance to attack her. ✯✯✯✯✯
123 Charlotte (Bride) Portrait Charlotte Bride Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Lance While we wait for Charlotte to get her normal form in Heroes we have her Bride form. Like her Fates form, she is moderately fast and absurdly strong in exchange for low defenses. Being an infantry Lance also doesn't hurt, making her an interesting unit, even though she is limited. ✯✯✯✯
124 Cordelia (Bride) Portrait Cordelia Bride Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Bow Prior to Brave Lyn, Bridal Cordelia was considered the best Archer in the game, and she still is, at least for Infantry Archers. Optimized offenses and a perfect candidate for a Brave Bow+, Bridal Cordelia is the best of the first wave of Brides and was one of the Brides I gunned for when their banner came back. ✯✯✯✯✯
125 Caeda (Bride) Portrait Caeda Bride Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Thunder Tome Unfortunately, Caeda is the runt of the Bridal litter. Save for a respectable speed and resistance, Caeda lacks the offensive presence of her fellow brides, or at least the ones I have in my army. Still, she has the making to take on other mages and retaliate with strong Icebergs, but she is definitely a rarity to see in Arenas. But hey, at least Caeda and Marth finally can have their wedding in Heroes. ✯✯✯
126 Marth (Groom) Marth (Bridal Bloom) Heroes portrait Heroes Cavalry FEH Axe As the first Groom of the game, Groom Marth enters as an Axe Cavalry unit and my first 5 Star Axe unit ever. With excellent speed and physical bulk, he is fantastic duelist. Sadly, he lacks Merge copies and has low magical bulk, making him at least a fairly average, but still usable unit. ✯✯✯
127 L'Arachel Portrait L'Arachel Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Thunder Tome L'Arachel may not be quite as oppressive as Reinhardt in the Blue Tome Cavalry category, but she still is nonetheless a strong unit for Cavalry teams, able to run either a Bladetome or her Personal Tome, Ivaldi. Either being strong with the former or fast with the latter, L'Arachel can edge out a path as a good Cavalry unit. Mine personally is the Ivaldi variant. ✯✯✯
128 Azura (New Years) Portrait Azura Happy New Year Heroes Flying FEH Axe New Year Azura is the first Flying Refreshing unit, which makes her unique amongst her fellow Dancer/Singers. Whether its on a flying team where she shines the strongest, or on a general defense team, New Year Azura is a welcomed addition to my roster and worth using for anyone who has her. ✯✯✯✯✯
129 Leon Portrait Leon Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Bow Powerful and defensive, he can easily shoot down any flying unit with his strength. He is among the best Archers you can pull at 3-4 stars and makes a nice fill until you can get one of the premium or seasonal archers of better strength. ✯✯✯
130 Robin (Legendary) Portrait RobinF Fell Vessel Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Colorless Breath A unique Legendary unit with a colorless breath and even stat spread.Legendary Robin shines best on a Flier team than on a Dragon team. Not a highly recommended unit for Legendary pulling, but still functional in the right circumstances. ✯✯✯✯✯
131 Titania Portrait Titania Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Axe A highly resistant and fast cavalry unit and one of my favorite Tellius characters. She is very different from Frederick and Gunter as an Axe Cavalry unit. Unfortunately her low Atk leaves a lot to desire in exchange for that bulk and speed. ✯✯✯
132 Deirdre Portrait Deirdre Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Wind Tome As one of two green units with dragon killing weapons, Deirdre is a welcome addition to my army to counter pesky Nowi, Female Corrin, and Male Kanas. She is a purely defensive unit if she is not slaying a dragon. Unlike her daughter, her main niche is her high Res which is good for running Ploy skills and stronger Iceberg damage. ✯✯✯✯
133 Julia Portrait Julia Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Wind Tome In a similar vein to her mother, Julia is another Green Tome Dragon Killer. Fitting that I got the two one of after the other because they both work similarly, but Julia is more focused on raw power and damage and is still good for them blue dragons. ✯✯✯✯
134 Legault Portrait Legault Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Dagger Mr. Clean himself. Legault's best advantage is his Dagger which punishes the unit type buff meta. His offenses pretty solid, ensuring that he makes the most of his tools. At least now I have a good Dagger unit whom I did not have to have their potential unlocked and is not Jakob. ✯✯✯✯
135 Karla Portrait Karla Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword An here is another fast swordswoman with a powerful Legendary sword. Despite a rather lackluster performance in FE7, Karla is an impressive Sword unit rivaling the likes of Ayra. Wrath and Even Speed Wave makes her an impressive unit off the bat. There are so many options for her in terms of builds so its no surprise that she is yet another top tier Sword unit. ✯✯✯✯✯
136 Bartre Portrait Bartre Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Axe Since his wife came home, the whole family got upgraded starting with Bartre. Batre has the potential to be a strong ORKO type of unit with monstrous Atk, but is slow, not to mentioned easily destroyed by mages. He is my first unit I'm using for Slaying Hammer purposes since I need the help taking down blue Armor units. ✯✯
137 Fir Portrait Fir Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword I want to like Fir. She's a very Res heavy unit and has great Spd. However, she has pitifully low Atk. She wants to be good like her mother and uncle, but her stats simply do not help her measure up, even with her Legendary weapon and refine. Maybe if I get Distant Counter to fodder one day, I can make true usage of that Res and make her an Anti-Mage swordswoman, but for now, well, at least she is a 5 star like her entire family. ✯✯
138 Seliph Portrait Seliph Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Sword Seliph is worse than his father in nearly ever aspect. While he can take his father's Divine Tyrfing, he has only risen a little. Without that weapon, Seliph struggles with his main claim to fame being his high HP pool, but low spd. Makes him good for HP Reliant skills like Infantry Pulse or Panic Ploy. Still, not a stellar unit and probably the worst overall Lord Character. ✯✯
139 Tana Portrait Tana Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Lance All around, Tana is a solid Flying unit and one of the best ones alongside Elincia. She is extremely flexible due to her great spread of stats and her personal weapon Vidofnir, making her a deceptively bulky enemy phase unit. For those premium build users, she can be built to be a player turn character too. It's really up to you how you wish to mold her as a unit. ✯✯✯✯✯
140 Nino (Pale Flower) Portrait Nino Pale Flower Heroes Heroes Flying FEH Wind Tome Taking to the skies, Pegasus Nino is an incredibly powerful aerial unit. Having all the perks of her Infantry version, but with access to flier buffs Pegasus Nino defines what it means to be a powerful aerial mages and all around mage. You can run her with Giga Excalibur or go for an OG Nino build with a Gronnblade. It's all up to you how you wish to use her. ✯✯✯✯✯
141 Sheena Portrait Sheena Heroes Heroes Armored FEH Axe Sheena is the true definition of a Tank in Heroes. Incredibly high defenses and the ability negate speed with an inherited Wary Fighter, few can plow through her in a single round, let alone two. She has been a long time unit, one that I waited to get an optimized stat line. Well worth the effort for a 4-Star Merge or as a 5-Star super unit. ✯✯✯✯
142 Linus Portrait Linus Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Axe Serving up some powerful Fang Justice, Linus is a true gem of a GHB unit and another top tier one. Great stats all around, solid starting skill set, and access to Basilikos. Linus truly is a unit worth investing in, unlike his brother. ✯✯✯✯
143 Canas Portrait Canas Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Fire Tome One of the more popular units of FE7, Canas is...bad. He gained a notable presence as fodder for many players for some rather good skills that cannot be fully utilized on his poor stat distribution. His only strength is that he is a better Raigh, and only slightly so. ✯✯
144 Delthea Portrait Delthea Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Thunder Tome Yet another glass cannon mage, but powerful supportive options thanks to her Dark Aura Tome. Delthea can dispatch foes easily and give her allies stat buffs, making her a highly synergetic unit for any army. She was a unit that I sort of wanted, but she wasn't a high priority. Nevertheless, she is still a great unit. ✯✯✯✯
145 Tailtiu Portrait Tailtiu Heroes Heroes Infantry FEH Thunder Tome Basically, we have Blue Nino here. Built to go with a better stat spread for Blárblade than her fellow innate wielder Odin, Tailtiu is a great option for a budget blade mage that is easy to obtain and will yield good, reliable results. ✯✯✯✯
146 Cordelia (Summer) Cordelia (Summer's Arrival) Portrait Heroes Cavalry FEH Lance My Cordelia Team continues to grow. An here she is in her Summer form who is much like her other two forms. Great offenses offset by subpar def and terrible res. That being said, she is among the best of her class as a Cavalry Lance, but like all other seasonal units, she is doomed in the long run to the merge game. ✯✯✯✯
147 Hector (Legendary) Portrait Hector (Legendary Heroes) Heroes Heroes Armored FEH Axe While I wait to get my first copy of vanilla Hector, we have Legendary Hector here who I do not even need to train to know that he ruins worlds. Bloated stats, incredible bulk, ridiculous Atk, great starting skill set. I do not have any doubt that basically his god given right as a both a Hector and a Legendary unit basically makes him a powerful unit from the get go. ✯✯✯✯✯
148 Elise Portrait Elise Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Staff The precious cinnamon bun of the Nohrian royals is present in my army. Arguably the best Staff unit in the game, Elise has lead the pack as the overall best Razzle Dazzle healer. Receiving Buffs are important to get the most sparkle for her role, but in the end, Elise is the unit you should pull for if you desire some extra glitter for your teams. ✯✯✯✯✯
149 Ephraim (Legendary) Portrait Ephraim (Legendary Lord) Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Lance Out of all the current Legendary Heroes, Ephraim is probably the most underwhelming, but not a bad unit by any means. He wants to be a solo mission character as Flame Siegmund gives him a guaranteed follow up when separated from his allies. Solar Brace gives him constant healing and can even create interesting combos with other skills like massive 80% recovery with Sol or a mini Aether with Moonbow. I think he's a great unit, but does not standout heavily when compared to other Legends. ✯✯✯✯✯
150 Cain Portrait Cain Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Sword Two Cavaliers! Cain is remarkably average with a decent offensive spread and defensive bulk that does not let him shine in any particular aspect. He has way too many competitors in his class. I already have much better Sword Cavalry units, but everyone gets to be upgraded in my army so I better get it done now. ✯✯
151 Abel Portrait Abel Heroes Heroes Cavalry FEH Lance Two Cavaliers! Abel shares many similarities with Cain, being an average cavalry unit with decent offensive and defensive stats, but is overshadowed by many other units in the same class. Technically I had a 5-Star version of him long before the current permanent one, but I foddered him for a better unit who can make use of Brave Lance, his lover Est, plus I had a better IV one that just needed to be promoted. ✯✯
