Fire Emblem Heroes tier list – top heroes in each colour

Get the best team to increase your chances of winning Arena battles with this handy Fire Emblem Heroes tier list

Fire Emblem Heroes Brave Hector, Valentine's Lif, and Fallen Edelgard

July 23, 2021: We updated our Fire Emblem Heroes tier list

A huge spin-off entry in the popular game series, Fire Emblem Heroes is a free-to-play tactical RPG with turn-based battles and a ton of events and new heroes to try out. With a huge roster of characters that has only grown over the last few years, the prevailing question is, of course, which heroes are the best? Who should you have on your team to ensure you come out the victor?

That’s where we come in. We have spent a lot of time not only playing the game, but researching how other players rate each of the top characters. With this info, we have pulled together this Fire Emblem Heroes tier list, catered specifically to Arena battles, though each of the characters has a lot of utility across all game modes. Keep in mind that all characters also have their own unique skills, and with the ability to merge heroes, there is a great deal of flexibility in this game – so if your favourite hero doesn’t make this list, it does not mean that they aren’t viable.

If you find this useful and have a passion for gacha games, why not check out our Another Eden tier list, Epic Seven tier list, AFK Arena tier list, or Genshin Impact tier list? We also have a list of the best gacha games if you are looking for something else to play.
