Fire Emblem Heroes, FEH tier list - The best heroes and a reroll guide
| Fire Emblem: Heroes
Every Fire Emblem hero and their merited tiers
With so many heroes, you might think that a FEH tier list should be easy to determine - but given that all the heroes (okay - maybe not all, but most) are good for a specific task, then you'll understand why there are so many different tiers (to give you an example: SS, S, S-).
When traveling between the worlds to free the heroes held captive, a question might pop in your mind - who are the best units in Fire Emblem Heroes? That is indeed a very good question, that I started wondering about ever since I unlock my first couple of heroes. While this game is extremely addictive, you might easily get lost in the plethora of characters presented to you.
What are the best characters in FEH?There are so many you'll unlock along the way, that a new player might easily get overwhelmed by this alone. But fear not - below we've prepared a Fire Emblem Heroes tier list to help you choose some of the best heroes to aid you in battle. And to be completely honest, it wasn't easy at all. There are literally hundreds of heroes, and if you're trying to remember all of them, it might take quite a while.

Also, before we dive in, you need to know that I've split the heroes according to their colour (Red, Blue, Green and Grey), and divided them each into a separate list. So if you're looking for a colour-specific FEH tier list, that's exactly what we've got for you.Original list by Cristina Mesesan, updated by Pocket Gamer Staff.
FEH tier list - Blue Heroes
Blue Heroes in FEH are mainly known to use the Lance as their main weapon. There can also be heroes using the Blue Breath, Blue Tome or Blue Bow, but most often than not you will find them with a Lance, since these are the most common weapons for the Colourless Heroes.
Ascended Idunn - this unit has amazing base ATK and DEF and that's ideal for most situations. It basically makes the unit a pretty decent unit that can withstand a hit while also dealing damage as well. Valentine's Rudolf - the unit can mitigate quite a bit of damage while also maintaining the ability to inflict some back. The Thorn Lance makes it fairly simple, yet super effective.

FEH tier list - Red Heroes
The most obvious characteristic of the Red Heroes is their use of bladed weapons, such as daggers and swords. As a rule of thumb, they have a slightly small range than the rest, but that depends on each individual character. Swords are typically melee-ranged, but it doesn't apply to every single character on the list.
Brave Seliph - with Holytide Tyrfing, this unit is a beast. Not only will he receive a boost in damage based on the number of tiles moved, but also greatly increase the defense. Idunn - her weapon will reduce the penalties on her while also reducing the first attack damage of any opponent. She also has a pretty solid stat boost, which makes her a top tier unit.

FEH tier list - Green Heroes
Most of the Green Heroes are Axe wielders, which should not be confused with the Lance or Sword. The Green heroes are great combatants and can make a neat addition to any team if deployed in the right position.
Hatari Azura - can provide plenty of buffs to allies, while being one of the only few movement refreshers in the game. Winter Sothis - she is a decent unit that can work well with Snow's Grace as weapon. She has the ability to counterattack and can fit into many teams easily thanks to her versatility.
|SS||Brave Tiki (Adult), Hatari Azura, Ninja Corrin (F), Valentine's Alm, Brave Ike, Brave Ephraim, Legendary Edelgard, Young Merric, Winter Sothis, Thrasir, New Year Peony, Valentine's Gustav, Bridal Catria, Legendary Celica, Brave Edelgard, Freyja.

Fire Emblem - Grey/Colorless Heroes tier list
Colorless Heroes or Grey Heroes are mostly represented by Dagger users and Bow users, which means you should always pay attention to how you deploy them. As you may be aware, Archers are unable to attack the enemies in the spaces next to them - it's always good to pay close attention to where you deploy them.
Legendary Leif - one of the absolute monsters in the game, Legendary Leif works great with Meisterbogen and Njörun’s Zeal for outstanding damage output. Fallen Edelgard - with the defense debuff applied by her exclusive Twin-Crest Power, the unit is able to be quite tanky, while inflicting a decent amount of damage with the attacks.
|SS||Fomortiis, New Year Askr, Brave Byleth (F), Askr, Legendary Leif, Ninja Lyn, Fallen Edelgard, Winter Marth, Bridal Micaiah, Legendary Corrin (F), Fallen Tiki (Young), Legendary Micaiah, Summer Freyja, Legendary Alm, Bramimond, Veronica, Pirate Tibarn, Valentine's Faye|

Fire Emblem Heroes Reroll Guide
Here we'll give you a short guide on how to reroll in Fire Emblem Heroes. The process is very simple and straightforward, and it should help you pull some decent 5* heroes to make things easier in the long run. But let's skip straight to the FEH reroll guide:
- Step 1: Start the game on a guest account/without linking.
- Step 2: Skip the video and play through the tutorial to earn the 15 orbs.
- Step 3: Do one fire heroes summon (pull 5 times) since the first one is free.
- Step 4: Pull 1 time from each summon focus. At this point, if you like the heroes you got, keep playing otherwise continue with Step 5.
- Step 5: To reroll, uninstall the game, re-install it and start over from Step 1.
Now that you've got a clear grasp of the rerolling process, there are a few things to keep in mind. Most importantly, you want to go for some heroes that will help you in the late game and are not easy to obtain all the time. Here are some more tips to keep in mind when you want to reroll:
- You should keep rerolling if you pulled a lot of 4* heroes but they're mostly bad.
- Aim for a variety of heroes, not just Staff heroes or so. Go for some tanks, CC and single target boss killers too.
- Most importantly, you should try to get 5* Heroes instead of 4* heroes that can get Unlocked Potential. It's better to get 5* straight up.
