Fire Emblem: Heroes (FEH) is Nintendo’s first gacha mobile game entry, and time hasn’t diminished its popularity. In the game, Fire Emblem fans can choose their favorite characters to fight for them. Like all gacha games, however, the question of who’s the strongest is unavoidable.

A Complete FEH Character Tier List

If you’re not sure which units are the best in Fire Emblem: Heroes, you’ve come to the right place. The units are grouped by color, making it slightly challenging to compare. Nevertheless, keep on reading for the details.

Introduction to the Tier List

FEH characters all fall into one of four colors:

  • Red
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Colorless

The colors are a carry-over from the original Fire Emblem weapon triangle. Red counters green, green beats blue, and blue are strong against red. Colorless units are outside the weapon triangle, and they exploit weaknesses differently.

For example, colorless units that use bows can always hurt flying enemies more. Some of them also have Breaker skills, which allow them to deal extra damage to units carrying a certain weapon type. Daggerbreaker and Tomebreaker are but two of these skills.

Without further delay, let’s get into the tier list.
