Details for the next Mythic Heroes summoning event are here and there’s a little surprise or two… As expected, Eitri makes her debut, but instead of being a Mythic Hero, she’ll be a Legendary Hero. Also, joining her is Thórr, rather than Fafnir.
Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.
Eitri and Thórr’s Legendary/Mythic Hero banner will be live from 30th November 2021, until the daily rollover on 14th December 2021 (UTC).
Also appearing are the following:
Red: Plumeria, Legendary Sigurd and Múspell
Blue: Legendary Dimitri, Fallen Dimitri and Nótt
Colorless: Bramimond, Legendary Corrin and Legendary Micaiah
Please continue for a breakdown of Eitri and Thórr abilities!
Each time a new Mythic or Legendary Hero gets released, my daughter and I watch the banner trailer together. She was super excited to see today’s trailer, mostly because she enjoys the characters advertised as cute (which according to her, include long-time favorites in Nino, Ephraim, Eirika and Fae). Who did today’s trailer announce? None other than everyone’s favorite chicken dragon, Fae: Childlike Dragon!
Legendary Blue Breath Fae comes coupled with some pretty unique PRF skills, notably in the form of a new inheritable Distant Counter variant, Distant Stance, and an extremely unique PRF Special, Life Unending. It functions similarly to the base Miracle, except that at turn 1, it cools down to activation status immediately, and also fully heals Fae the first time it procs during a map’s battle. This makes Fae extremely durable, because her weapon can reduce universal stats and negate follow-up attacks (although she is still susceptible to units with Brave weapons that pierce her PRF on the first strike, or that can ignore her follow-up negation).
As far as inheritance goes, this is a pretty good one, because one could conceivably pass Dragon’s Ire and Def/Res Menace, or Dragon’s Ire and Distant Stance, (or Distant Stance and Def/Res Menace) depending on the inheritor’s skills. Free/Grail unit Aelfric can supply a unit with the needs for Def/Res Menace, which may help Summoners plan inheritance if they’re not interested in keeping multiples of Fae, but score some with good fortune.
On a secondary note, she comes with the Duel Blessing under the Earth Affinity, and the expected Dual Unit status (showcased this time with Sophia).
Included in the Legendary Hero banner are the expected 11 companion heroes, all of which feature the 8% Appearance Rate. This batch includes:
This banner will run from October 29 (12:00 PT) until November 4 (11:59p PT). If this banner interests you, then good luck, Summoners!

It’s that time again, for another Legendary Hero to join the fray. This time, we have someone who was due to receive the title eventually, in Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn’s Micaiah.
Legendary Micaiah is a Colorless Tome Infantry, Wind-affinity Legendary Hero with the Duel blessing, the Pair-Up property, and comes with a slew of new skills, including 3 PRFs and one new (likely) inheritable option in Joint Dist. Guard. , which does pretty much what you’d expect it to. As far as her PRFs go, her weapon boasts in optimal scenarios, dual-effectiveness as per normal, +23 Atk, +6 Res, guaranteed follow-ups, and on player phase, Desperation 2. Additionally, her B-PRF gives a -5 Atk/Res debuff on foes and also gives her a 30% damage reduction from 2-range enemies. If she isn’t attacking, her Assist-PRF is a unique combination of Harsh Command+ and Sacrifice, that converts penalties into bonuses, removes remaining penalties (presumably things such as movement penalties), and refills a targets HP to a max of Micaiah’s HP -1.
As always with a Legendary Hero banner, we’ll see an inclusion of an 8% Focus summoning rate on a specific set of 11 other heroes, in addition to our Legendary Hero of choice. The set includes:
The Legendary Hero (Micaiah: Radiant Queen) banner drops on August 31, and runs until September 6. Good luck, Summoners!

Not to be outdone by his students, the next Legendary Hero to arrive in Fire Emblem Heroes will be Byleth (male) from Three Houses.
Note: You can view the Japanese version of the trailer here.
It’s hard not to know about Byleth, between the success of Three Houses and their inclusion in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. But for the record, they’re the player character–a mercenary hired to become a professor at the Officer’s Academy in Garreg Mach Monastery.
Byleth’s Legendary Hero banner will be available between the daily rollovers on 30th June and 7th July 2021 (UTC). These Heroes will appear alongside the Professor:
Red: Líf, Plumeria and Annand
Blue: Legendary Julia, Erinys and Nótt
Green: Hel and Dagr
Colorless: Legendary Alm, Legendary Leif and Bramimond
