The most popular hero can be yours!
— Website tagline

A Hero Rises (Japanese: アスク王国国民投票 Ask Kingdom's National Voting) was a first anniversary polling event associated with Fire Emblem Heroes that ran in two rounds in 2018. The first round, featuring every playable character at the time, ran from February 1 to February 12. The second round, featuring the four top contenders from round one, ran from February 15 to February 19.

Overview

An example of one of the wallpaper rewards; this one features Marth.

Unlike Choose Your Legends the polling consisted exclusively of characters already in Fire Emblem Heroes at the time.

The purpose of A Hero Rises was to determine the hero given to players after the completion of Xenologue 3: The People's Hero. The Legendary Hero Ike: Vanguard Legend was the winner of A Hero Rises and thus the reward for completing Xenologue 3.

Several characters original to Heroes were ineligible for voting. These characters were Alfonse, Anna, Sharena, Veronica, Bruno, Surtr, Laevatein, and Loki; presumably due to the developers being unwilling to give out extra copies of these heroes due to gameplay reasons.

Voting

Similarly to the Choose Your Legends, a voter may vote once per day, and if they have a My Nintendo account they can track their previous votes on their Battle Ballot page. Users without a My Nintendo account cannot view their previous votes. If a day of voting is missed the voter cannot "make up" their missed vote, so they become limited to one less overall vote; if there are seven days of voting and the first day is missed one can only vote six times if they make sure to vote every subsequent day.

One voter can vote for the same character multiple times, or they can choose to vote for a variety of characters.

Characters were organized by unit color (red, green, blue, colorless) as well as number of taps recorded on the home screen by players worldwide within said color. Upon choosing a color the voter is presented with a list of characters to choose from. After confirming a vote for a particular character, a link to a phone wallpaper featuring the chosen character was provided.

Wallpapers

After voting for a specific character, the voter was given a link to a phone wallpaper featuring said character. There exists a wallpaper for each of the 211 candidates.
