A Tap Battle in progress.

Tap Battle (Japanese: タップバトル Tap Battle) is a game mode in Fire Emblem Heroes first made available on February 9, 2018. A departure from the game's standard means of battle, Tap Battle plays as a rhythm game where, as the mode's name implies, players fight enemies by tapping a certain area of the screen in time with the music in a similar vein to the Battle Music mode of the Theatrhythm series.

Overview

During a Tap Battle event, players take on 100-floor dungeons in groups of five called stages, with a boss at the end of every fourth stage (20 floors). On the first day of an event, only eight stages (40 floors) are available, with an additional four stages (20 floors) becoming available each of the next three days until all 100 floors are available on the fourth day of the event. Starting from the fourth Tap Battle event, Illusory Dungeon: Sanctuary of the Mages, extra stages start to become available after the regular stage selection finishes its initial availability, with one Extra Stage added per day until all associated with the event become available.

If a foe reaches a character, one heart's worth of health is lost; the stage is failed if all hearts are lost. The stage is cleared once the last foe leaves the stage with health still remaining. Ordinary adversaries are defeated with a single tap; bosses require multiple taps in order to drain their health meter, and can jump between rows in between their attack attempts, and are defeated once their health meter is fully drained. Players earn a combo score based on how many enemies they defeat without missing that is used to calculate their rank at the end of the stage (from C to S, with an S rank only being earned for achieving a perfect score).

Players start a run of a dungeon with three hearts worth of health. Each boss defeated in the regulation set of stages adds one additional heart worth of initial health to their own health meter, up to a maximum of eight hearts.

Gameplay modes

The mode settings in tap battle, currently toggled to Expert and Hard.

Tap Battle can be taken on in two difficulties, Normal and Hard, as well as two control modes, Casual and Expert, which can be mixed and matched; all rewards earned in this mode can be earned regardless of difficulty and control mode, meaning one player can play Normal Casual and another can player Hard Expert and both get the same rewards. In addition to the regular rewards available for simply clearing the stages, there are often additional quests available during the duration of a Tap Battle event that offer additional rewards that aren't specifically tied to a single stage.

Successfully tapping the designated area of the screen with an enemy positioned perfectly allows players to instantly defeat any foe that enters that area, and the more consecutive foes that are successfully tapped, the higher the player's combo grows. In Casual Mode, players tap a designated button on the bottom of the screen and the character on the row with the closest enemy will attack; in Expert Mode, players tap the individual lanes for the character on that row to attack.

The following table denotes all of the rewards tables associated with Tap Battle to date.

In addition, anytime floors 96-100 of a dungeon are beaten in the first four dungeons and again in the ninth dungeon onward, the team sent into that battle will discover a hot spring and relax in it; the actual design of the hot spring is different in the eleventh and twelfth dungeons due to a general change in the dungeon's backdrop for those events. The fifth through eighth dungeons change this to a scene at a summer ocean.

Trivia

  • Text found in the game assets from version 2.2.0 onward and associated with the mode's music includes names associated with every game in the main Fire Emblem series prior to Three Houses (in the English-language text, all of the official names of the games with the exception of Fire Emblem, termed here as Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade translating that game's Japanese subtitle in lieu of having an English subtitle of its own) as well as Warriors and Heroes itself, thus implying future dungeons will add to the music selection. Text for Three Houses itself was added in the fifteenth different Tap Battle, Illusory Dungeon: Three Houses, the first one held since elements from Three Houses began to appear in Heroes. As of the sixteenth different Tap Battle, Illusory Dungeon: Brave Heroes, fourteen of the eighteen games for which text have been allocated in this fashion have been represented in Tap Battle music selections; Genealogy of the Holy War is the only allocated pre-GBA-era title thus far represented, while every allocated game from the GBA-era onward has been represented.
  • Floors 56-60 of Illusory Dungeon: Shadowed Memories is the first stage in the mode to include non-generic, non-boss enemies in the enemy selection, in this case Palla, Catria, and Est; likewise, Ogma and Barst appear on floors 76-80.
  • Although some accessories had been associated with previous Tap Battles, Illusory Dungeon: Farewells is the first to distribute these accessories directly via its rewards table; previous Tap Battle-associated accessories were distributed via associated quests. Accessories returned to the quest rewards with the major retooling of the rewards table in the thirteenth event.
  • "The Sacrifice and the Saint", from the Illusory Dungeon: Heartstring's Ties event, is the first song to make its first Tap Battle appearance in an Extra Stage; previously, all Extra Stage songs had been repeats of songs from previous events.
  • Illusory Dungeon: Three Houses is the first to feature a song with variable BPM; the song used from Floors 1-40, "Fire Emblem: Three Houses Main Theme", is played at 89, 184, and 178 BPM in various stages. Previously, all songs used only one BPM setting.
    • Ironically, this also made "Fire Emblem: Three Houses Main Theme" both the slowest and fastest song used in Tap Battle at the time; the previous slowest was the 113 BPM "Duty (Ablaze)" (first in Illusory Dungeon: Labyrinth of Despair), while the previous fastest was the aformentioned 180 BPM "The Sacrifice and the Saint". It remains the slowest song used in Tap Battle to date, but "Winds of Askr" from Illusory Dungeon: Driven to Madness at 225 BPM has since become the fastest to date.
  • Tap Battle's banner in the Events section of the game's menu was temporarily disabled in the Treat Fiends update, fueling rumors of the mode's removal from the game in that update; those rumors were dispelled by the presence of quests relating to a rerun of Illusory Dungeon: Sanctuary of the Mages being present in the same update, and the banner was ultimately timed to be re-enabled at the actual start of the dungeon's rerun.
