Let's get in there! To victory!
— Rowan

Hero Challenge (Japanese: 英雄闘技 Hero Contest) is a History Mode map in Fire Emblem Warriors. It is unlocked after clearing Chapter 5 of the main story and was added after the 1.2.0 update.


Main article: Hero Challenge/Script

Rowan and Lianna battle against their friends in the arena, with each of them commenting how great the battle was afterwards. Enemies also appear in the arena, in which the twins defeat. After defeating their last enemy, Darios, Lianna and Rowan declare themselves the victors.


Seeking to test their skills, the twins make their way to an arena full of challenges. If they hope to emerge victorious, they must defeat heroes who have overcome countless struggles of their own.

Mission deployment


This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

This map is rather straightforward: simply complete all the missions to unlock other missions until the map's story is complete. The generic enemy missions also provide a good source for farming generic unit materials.


  • All of the dialogue on this map are prerecorded lines from the vanilla game.
