Hero Battle

From Fire Emblem Wiki, your source on Fire Emblem information. By fans, for fans.

Hero Battle is a game mode in Fire Emblem Heroes, and one of a number of types of the game's Special Maps. A Hero Battle allows players to challenge a team on a special map each day with the potential to recruit the battle's headliner as a playable unit.

There are twelve Hero Battles in total, with each battle taking place on a specific day within a twelve-day cycle. Each Hero Battle allows players to win a one-star version of the headliner unit for completing the day's challenge on Normal difficulty and a two-star version of the unit for completing the challenge on Hard difficulty. Unlike other game modes that allow players to win units, such as Grand Hero Battle and Tempest Trials, the characters in Hero Battle are available in the normal summoning pools and are not unique to this mode. Hero Battle is the original type of Persistent Special Maps, a term that came into usage on February 9, 2018 with the addition of two other types of Persistent Special Maps.

The Hero Battle is the only means for players to win characters of one-star rarity in Heroes, and also account for two-thirds of the characters available at two-star rarity (the other third come from the free characters given at the start, the first two Grand Hero Battles, and a March 2017 quest reward).

List of Hero Battles
