The Hero is an advanced class in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. A character must be Level 20 or higher in order to access the advanced classes.
As an upgraded version of the mercenary, the hero further improves the class’ excellent strength and speed. This allows the unit to dodge attacks easily and deal considerable counterattack damage. Only males can become heroes, despite the game allowing female units to become mercenaries.
As previously stated, heroes are experts in dealing heavy damage while also being able to strike first or avoid attacks. They also have excellent resistance, which makes them much tougher to beat using magic. This sets them apart from most sword or axe-based classes. All in all, the hero is a well-balanced class whose only weakness is its lack of movement.
