(Redirected from Orbs)
This page is about the consumable items in Fire Emblem Heroes, for the legendary Archanean artifacts that possibly inspired this item type, see Geosphere, Lightsphere, Lifesphere, Starsphere and/or Darksphere.

The amount of Orbs on-hand, six in this screenshot, is shown in the upper right of the screen during many points of gameplay.

Orbs (Japanese: オーブ Orb) are special consumable items appearing in Fire Emblem Heroes. They are used to summon heroes from across the Outrealms to the world of Zenith.


Orb types.

Orbs are an important ingredient for summoning heroes. Orbs come in several colors, representing the weapon types available in Heroes. The color determines what hero is summoned, the hero uses the weapon type matching the Orb. For instance, a red Orb can be used to summon Lucina, who uses swords, a weapon situated in the red portion of the weapon triangle.

Red Orbs summon characters with a red weapon type, which includes, swords, red tomes, red bows, and red breaths.

Green Orbs summon characters with a green weapon type, which includes, axes, green tomes, green bows, and green breaths.

Blue Orbs summon characters with a blue weapon type, which includes, lances, blue tomes, blue bows, and blue breaths.

Colorless Orbs summon characters with a gray weapon type, which includes, shuriken, staves, colorless bows, and colorless breaths.

Orbs can also be used to purchase bonuses for the home castle, which grant experience gain boosts.

Obtaining Orbs

This section has been marked as a stub. Please help improve the page by adding information.

Orbs can be obtained in a few ways. Completing maps in Heroes's story mode grants an Orb when that map is completed the first time. Orbs can also be obtained through special promotions, for instance, My Nintendo linked accounts can obtain 10 free Orbs if redeemed through My Nintendo.

Promotions and bonuses

Currently two special promotions have provided Orbs. Many promotions are limited time, though some, like the weekend log-in bonus appear to be perpetual.
