It can be daunting to sift through Fire Emblem Heroes’ roster of over 500 heroes, but the appeal of an already unique gacha-strategy game is good a reason enough.

FEH, as it’s widely known, borrows heavily from the gacha formula. You collect units (called heroes) to deploy in turn-based, grid-based strategic battles. Being a Fire Emblem game, it also has it’s own unique main story, with dozens of side quests and limited-time events peppered throughout the campaign.

Not every hero is created equal in FEH, which means that a ranking of heroes is worth using as a guide to building the ultimate team for the end game content. You can see in the following sections the tier list, as well as explanations on how it was made.

The Tier List

There are a few things you need to know before diving into the tier list:

  • Hero rarity (i.e. 3-star, 4-star, 5-star) isn’t important in FEH because you can level a 3-star hero up to 5-star anyway.
  • The franchise’s iconic weapon triangle system manifests itself in FEH through weapon colors:

Unit Color

Strong Against

Weak Against

Red

Green

Blue

Some heroes wield colorless weapons that exist outside the weapon triangle. Instead, they can have special stats or effects applied to them.

  • The hero’s movement type also factors a great deal in battle as it dictates how mobile it will be on different maps. There are also colorless weapons that are strong against flying or mounted units, for instance. A column containing the hero’s movement type is added to the list as well.

With that out of the way, let’s go ahead and see the best heroes to raise in the game.

Heroes in this tier are less likely to have success in different facets of the game compared to those higher in the ranks. Their base stats won’t cut it for the end game, and their abilities simply peak too early. Consider using them only if you have no other option.

Fire Emblem Heroes Tier List F Tier

All other heroes not included in the rankings above can be considered as F-tier or very poor heroes to raise. It’s best to avoid these units because the resources and time you consume won’t get rewarded at all.

With a roster of more than 500 characters, there will be a lot that won’t provide any value to you in the long run.

Hopefully, this list has helped narrow down those that you should keep and raise to assemble the best team that you can manage.
