Heroes: The Blood of the Dragons Voting Gauntlet Coming Soon!

We now have details for the next voting gauntlet in Fire Emblem Heroes! The Blood of the Dragons Voting Gauntlet begins on Monday. The gauntlet will pit eight dragon or dragon-descendant characters head-to-head. Check out the bracket below.

The first round will see match-ups of:

  • Young Tiki vs. Male Corrin
  • Fae vs. Ninian
  • Adult Tiki vs. Nowi
  • Female Corrin vs. Sophia

According to the in-game notification screen, there will be some slight changes from previous gauntlets. The update text reads: “Adjustments were made to how the game calculates which armies are stronger and weaker.” It looks like we can expect some tweaks regarding those flag multiplier bonus hours.

Starting today, two banners featuring all eight heroes are also available! The Block A banner contains 5★ versions of Y!Tiki, M!Corrin, Fae, and Ninian. The Block B banner has 5★ versions for the other half, A!Tiki, Nowi, F!Corrin, and Sophia. If you don’t have some of these characters yet, now is the perfect time to summon and train them!

The Blood of the Dragons Voting Gauntlet begins on Monday, 9 October at 7:00am UTC. Each round lasts slightly under two days, giving players a break in between rounds for calculations to be processed. The final round ends on 15 October at 4:59am UTC.

    I like how Male Corrin is the odd one here for being the only male dragon.
    I’m cheering for Nowi!

    • Kneekicker

      This Gauntlet was the first time I truly realized M!Corrin was the only male dragon in the game (unless one considers Ninian to be Roy’s mother).

      Hope some other dude dragons like Xane, Nils, or M!Kana eventually see their way into Heroes.

      • Alexander Bodine

        Or Bantu and what’s his name from Sacred Stones.

      • MetalGear Lamia

        Don’t care for (male) Kana but my daughter Kana bun though…..yes please also wonder how Zane would work with his class.

      • NozoBoobs

        Actually we have two male half-dragons in the game, but one is spoiler

        • Kneekicker

          Are you referring to Soren? Because he’s all that comes to mind right now.

          I don’t really consider him a dragon since he demonstrates very little powers indicative of his lineage, unlike Sophia who’s at least really old. He’s likely never going to be revealed as a dragon descendant in Heroes due to said spoilers anyways.

  • dmurr

    I’m calling the final battle between Nowi and Ninian.

    • mrkisukes

      Making F Robin a banner character with IVs might actually improve her utility, so why not. Also the idea of a Smash Heroes gauntlet would be lit.

  • Alexander Bodine

    Can’t participate, but rooting for Ninian.

  • CombatMagi

    Probably go with Nowi just for the fact she’s in my main squad but how many Falchion users are we going to be seeing in this gauntlet?

    • mrkisukes

      Don’t forget Julia…who is likely to be just as big of a threat since there are 2 red dragons, 1 green, and 3 blue dragons. The only thing that would be a threat to Julia would be the 2 red non-dragon characters.

      • TheBraveGallade

        And THAT nust adds more reasons for falcion users to be in… as a julia counter. I mean nowi can come out on top of a falcion matchup…

  • mrkisukes

    Who do I swear my waifu allegiance to? The hardest decision anyone has every made.

  • TheBraveGallade

    no-wi! no-wi! no-wi!

  • Morgan Rodgers

    2 free draws is cool, but I don’t really care about any of these units (as far as the banners are concerned), they are all pretty common I think.

    • Kirie

      Yeah, this is the first gauntlet where I actually had versions of literally everyone in it! I got a free 5★ F!Corrin from the banner, though, so I won’t complain.

  • O.H. X-1990

    Hey, wait a minute! It’s understandable that Male Corrin is a dragon, even though he’s only a sword fighter in this game, but Sophia?! What’s Sophia doing there?! She’s not a dragon! …Or wait, is she?! I don’t remember!

    But anyway, I don’t know who will win, Ninian or Female Corrin?!

    • Kirie

      Sophia is half-dragon, half-human, and about a century old when she joins the party in Binding Blade. 🙂

    • MetalGear Lamia

      She’s half dragon

  • Shenai

    Well, I’ll be sending out my Nino as usual, this time to everyone on team Ninian.
    First time I have most of the characters in a gauntlet but FE 7 is still my favorite, so Ninian it is.

  • Matthew Tate

    Nowi will win this, hands down.

    But I would vote for Adult Tiki. Following her immediate loss, I would vote for Ninian, despite not knowing who she is, because she is the only non-loli that has a character design I kind of like.

  • Sentinel

    Why do I see so many thinking Nowi is going to win? Adult Tiki is pretty popular as well, and I’m pretty sure Female Corrin is more popular overall than any of these characters.

    Young Tiki or Ninian will come out of Block A, but I think Female Corrin will come out of Block B.
