Heroes: The Next Legendary Hero is a Hero-King

That’s right, Summoners. The upcoming Legendary Hero has been revealed, and it is none other than the posterchild of Fire Emblem himself, the Hero-King Marth.

Marth brings with him an impressive kit, as an Infantry Red Sword wielder. His base kit is designed with two things in mind; playing a supportive role, and slaughtering Breath-users. He also comes as a Fire-blessed Legendary Hero, boosting Res of allies with a Fire blessing.

Marth’s Legendary Hero summoning banner will as always, bring a batch of 5* accessible Heroes with no others within their color, to hands of the Summoner, at an 8% minimum. It kicks off on August 28 at 12a PT, and runs until September 3 at 12a PT.

Along with Marth, comes:

  • Red
    • Lene
    • Reinhardt (Sword)
  • Green
    • Alphonse (Spring)
    • Hector (Valentine)
    • Gunnthra
  • Blue
    • Fjorm
    • Lucina (Brave)
    • Nephenee
  • Colorless
    • Faye
    • Kagero (Spring)
    • Robin (Legendary, Fell Vessel)

Marth totes the following skills:

  • Exalted Falchion (Red Sword)
    • 16 Mt | 1 Rng
    • Effective against dragon foes. Grants Spd +3. Grants bonus to Atk/Spd/Def/Res during combat equal to current bonus on each of unit’s stats. Calculates each stat bonus independently.

    • Boosts damage dealt by 30% of unit’s Spd.
    • Grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res +4 to unit and all allies for 1 turn after combat. (Bonus granted to allies even if unit’s HP reaches 0.)
  • Atk/Spd Bond 3 (A)
    • If unit is adjacent to an ally, grants Atk/Spd +5 during combat.
  • Binding Shield (B)
    • In combat against a dragon foe, unit makes a guaranteed follow-up attack and foe cannot counterattack or make a follow-up attack.
  • Infantry Flash 3 (C)
    • Infantry allies within 2 spaces gain: “If unit’s Spd > foe’s Spd, grants Special cooldown charge +1 per unit’s attack. (Only highest value applied. Does not stack.)”

    Uh oh, I’ve been trying for a new Legendary Robin for so long (trying to get a better Boon/Bane combo), but at the same time…
    I. WANT. THAT. MARTH! Rip me…

    • Bongo Beans

      I’m still after Gunnthra!

      • Daniel Smith

        Gunnthra is a good unit
        female grima, isn’t that great for flyer emblem but is useful for a mixed team if you give her guidance seal

  • Bongo Beans

    I really like him but could have done with a bit more time after the CYL banner to appreciate those units.

  • Big Klingy

    Binding Shield is the official localization, the FE12 fan translation doesn’t need updating.
    That’s the main thing I’m getting out of this.

  • 3-13 Archer

    This ain’t Lucina! They promised me another Lucina. Jokes aside, he looks broken and shares colour with the only units that interest me. But we still need a blue dragon counter.

    • Zog58

      I mean, on Player Phase Marth invalidates all dragons so there’s really no issue there. And if he is under Res tactics, that is +12 Res on Marth, so he can enemy phase them well too. As for blue dragons, Deirdre, Julia and somewhat FH!Elincia do the job well. Did you mean red dragons, who are only type countered by FH!Ryoma with Elincia’s dagger?

      • 3-13 Archer

        Late response, but I meant a counter to red dragons. There’s sometimes that Roy/Marth/Lucina can’t OHKO Tiki. And that Ryoma is a counter I didn’t think of. You’d need two limited units, though.

    I love the artwork! They did Marth right.

  • Andres Marquez

    His look is priceless

  • Exalted Falchion + Tactics team = NUUUUUUUUUUUT

  • Morgan Rodgers

    Unless his base stats are super low he is brooooooken. I guess IS has kind of painted themselves into a corner with so many strong sword units, each new one has to be clearly stronger than the rest.

    If the Judgral banner is true and looks good, I might just actually come back and play this game
