Fire Emblem Warriors is home to a wide variety of enemies, with different ways of being approached.

Weak Enemies

Low-Level Troops

The most common enemy you'll encounter are, of course, the large hordes of weak enemies you'll blow away by the thousands. They come in six different varieties; five of them are defined by the weapon type they carry, be it swords, lances, axes, tomes, or bows, while the sixth is the weakest, red-colored form of the Outrealm Fiends. They do not drop any materials on defeat.

Low-Level Captains

These enemies are generally mixed in with the large swarms of generic troops. They can be distinguished by their slightly larger size and more ornate helmet, or in the case of the Outrealm Fiends, their prominent horns. They are slightly stronger and more aggressive than the generic troops, but are still weak. On defeat, they may drop a bronze material such as a Captain's Sword, Captain's Lance, Captain's Axe, Captain's Tome, Captain's Bow, or Monster's Claw depending on their type. They may also drop tonics.

Outpost Captains

Outpost Captains are the same as the low-level captains listed directly above, but as their name suggests they guard Outposts. Eliminating an Outpost Captain will claim the Outpost for your army; conversely, when your Outpost Captain is defeated, the enemy will claim it. Unlike the other captains, these enemies have a displayed health meter and can be locked onto. Their drops are the same, however.

Special Enemy Types

Fort Captain

Fort Captains guard forts, as their name suggests. Each Fort Captain is one of the strong enemy types listed above (even Manaketes or Outrealm Fiends), and behaves the same way, but upon defeat the fort they're guarding is ceded to the army that defeated them.

Priest

Priests appear in some missions. They are a special variant of a Mage that can heal their nearby allies.

The Hoshidan army calls them Monks/Great Masters, while the Nohrian army calls them Butlers.

Rally Captain

Rally Captains appear in some missions. They behave identically to any of the standard strong enemy types, but their presence on the battlefield will boost the morale of other troops, making them dangerous if left alone.

Messenger

Messengers appear in some missions. They behave identically to any of the standard strong enemy types, but will focus on reaching a specific destination rather than combat. If they do so, reinforcements will be summoned.

Summoner

Summoners appear in some missions. They are a special variant of a Mage that can call more enemy troops onto the map remotely. Some Summoners will only summon weak troops, while others may summon strong enemies or even boss characters.
