Fire Emblem Heroes Fan Favorites Poll Led By Ike, Roy, Lucina, Lyn, and Tharja

Fire Emblem Heroes Fan Favorites Poll Led By Ike, Roy, Lucina, Lyn, and Tharja

The poll is only at its midpoint, but some characters are pulling ahead in the rankings.

Nintendo of America has announced the Top 20 Heroes and Heroines from the current Fire Emblem Heroes poll. As a part of the Choose Your Legends event leading up to the mobile game's launch on February 2, 2017, fans can vote each day for their favorite Fire Emblem heroes from every title in the series.

Being that this is the North American poll, it's weighted towards the games we've played. That list starts at 2003's Fire Emblem for Game Boy Advance, which was Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade in Japan and the seventh entry in the series.

The Top 10 heroes list includes logical contenders, like younger Ike from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, Chrom and male Robin from Awakening, older Ike from Radiant Dawn. Roy from The Binding Blade and Marth from Shadow Dragon are likely both on the list because of their popularity in Super Smash Bros Melee, which oddly enough was the impetus for Nintendo releasing Fire Emblem on our shores.

Two surprising entries in the Top 10 include Hector from The Blazing Blade, the game's third main character behind Lyn and Eliwood, and Donnel, the pot-wearing villager from Fire Emblem Awakening. Well, perhaps Donnel shouldn't be surprising, since the character has become somewhat of a meme.

The Top 10 heroines list is led by Lyn, the real main character of Blazing Blade, but the rest of the list is weighted more towards the recent entries in the series. Lyn is followed by other female leads, including stealth heroine Lucina and female Robin from Awakening, female Corrin and Azura from Fates.

Sexy-leaning characters Tharja from Awakening and Camilla from Fates take spots 3 and 4 respectively. Eirika from The Sacred Stones lands at #6, beating her twin brother Ephraim by one spot. Unrequited lover of Chrom Cordelia take spot #7, because people make bad life choices. (And she's damned strong.)

Voting continues until January 31, 2017, so there's still a chance to weed out the bad choices and push some of the better characters higher! Lon'qu, Niles, and Felicia need your help! Chrom and Nowi do not. That is all!
