Stat values in Fire Emblem Heroes are semi-random. They are determined by a unit's base stats, rarity, and stat variations.

The wiki has a Stats Calculator you can use to determine your hero's stat variation.

Base stats[edit | edit source]

All units have predetermined stat values from level 1 to 40. Units will receive seemingly random stats as they level up (dependent on a unit's bane/boon combination), but they will all end at their final stat values at level 40.

For example, 5★ Nowi has the following stats at level 1:

Rarity HP ATK SPD DEF RES
5★ 17 6 5 6 5

At level 40, her stats will be:

Rarity HP ATK SPD DEF RES
5★ 45 34 27 30 27

Regardless of how good or bad a character's level ups are, they will always converge to their base final values.

Stat totals / Rating[edit | edit source]

The total base stats of a hero is the sum of all the hero's base stats (HP + ATK + SPD + DEF + RES). This total is used mainly in Arena matchmaking to match teams with similar stat totals against each other. The rating of a hero is the sum of all the hero's base stats including stats from skills. There is an option under the Allies menu that allows heroes to be sorted by their rating. There is currently no option for sorting heroes by their total base stats.

Rarity[edit | edit source]

Each hero has a set neutral stat line at 1★, for example, Virion's stat line at 1★ is

Rarity HP ATK SPD DEF RES
1★ 18 5 5 5 1

Increasing the rarity of a hero by 1 increases two or three of the base stats, depending on which rarities are involved.

Going to 2★ increases the two highest non-HP stats by one each.
Going to 3★ increases HP and the two remaining non-HP stats by one each.
Going to 4★ increases the two highest non-HP stats by one each.
Going to 5★ increases HP and the two remaining non-HP stats by one each.

In the case of a tie between two stats, the first one in the listed order will be chosen, Atk > Spd > Def > Res.

For our example Virion, this means his base stats over the other rarities will be as follows.

Rarity HP ATK SPD DEF RES
1★ 18 5 5 5 1
2★ 18 6 6 5 1
3★ 19 6 6 6 2
4★ 19 7 7 6 2
5★ 20 7 7 7 3

Stat variation[edit | edit source]

Stat variations are differences a unit's stats may have compared to their base values.

For example, you may have three 5★ Nowis with the following stats at level 1:

Rarity HP ATK SPD DEF RES
5★ 17 6 5 6 5
5★ 17 7 5 5 5
5★ 18 6 5 6 4

The first Nowi has neutral base stats, meaning base stats with no variations. The second Nowi has one more attack and one less defense than the neutral Nowi. This means she has an Atk+/Def- stat variance. The last Nowi has one more HP and one less resistance, or a HP+/Res- stat variance.

Stat variances appear at level 1 and will affect a unit's final stats. At max level, the three Nowis will have the following stats:

Rarity HP ATK SPD DEF RES
5★ 45 34 27 33 27
5★ 45 37 27 30 27
5★ 48 34 27 33 24

A unit can either have one positive and one negative stat variance, or no stat variance at all. You cannot receive a unit with multiple (2+) positive variances in different stats, nor can you receive one with multiple (2+) negative ones. For example, a player cannot receive a hero who has a positive variance in two different stats, a negative variance in three different stats and vice versa.

When reading a unit's stat growth table, each stat will have three values: the negative/neutral/positive variances of those stat. For example, 5★ Nowi at level 1 has the following table:

Rarity HP ATK SPD DEF RES
5★ 16/17/18 5/6/7 4/5/6 5/6/7 4/5/6

16/17/18 are her negative/neutral/positive variances for HP, respectively. A unit's final stats will be determined by their level 1 variances. An Atk+/Def- 5★ Nowi will have the following stats at levels 1 and 40:

Rarity HP ATK SPD DEF RES
5★ 17 7 5 5 5
5★ 45 37 27 30 27

A unit may have any combination of stat variances, except for free units, who will always have no stat variation. Stat variation will be retained when a unit increases rarity.

Level 1 stats[edit | edit source]

A hero's stat total at level 1 can be determined by looking at their rarity while considering a few stat total modifying factors, detailed in the following tables.

Modifiers[edit | edit source]

Rarity Level 1
stat total
1★ 37
2★ 39
3★ 42
4★ 44
5★ 47
Factor Stat total
modifier
Dancer/Singer -8
Trainee -8
Ranged unit -3
Cavalry unit -1
Armored unit +7
Veteran +8
+0 Base, +2 GP 0
+1 Base, +1 GP +1
+1 Base, +2 GP +1

A Dancer/Singer is any unit with access to Dance or Sing:

A Ranged unit is any unit with a ranged weapon (Tomes, bows, daggers and staves).

Cavalry Icon Move Cavalry.png and Armored Icon Move Armored.png are a unit's respective movement type, shown by their respective movement icon.

Whether a unit is a Veteran or a Trainee is not displayed in-game.

The current list of veteran units includes:

The current list of trainee units includes:

In addition there are the following unnamed classes:

+0 Base, +1 GP: +1 Base, +2 GP:
+0 Base, +2 GP:
+1 Base, +1 GP:

Example[edit | edit source]

Consider the example of a level 1 Jagen 4★ who is:

  • Both Veteran and Cavalry
  • Neither Ranged nor a Dancer.


Based on this, we can calculate his neutral stats total to be:

4★ Veteran Cavalry Total
44 + 8 - 1 = 51


If we check Jagen's actual neutral level 1 stats, we find his total stat matches with his Level 1 4★ stat total:

Rarity HP Atk Spd Def Res Total
4★ 19 8 6 7 11 51

Level 40 stats[edit | edit source]

A hero's stats at level 40 can be determined by looking at their base stats, and a hidden stat called growth points (GP). Each hero has a growth point value attached to each of their five stats, these growth points are always the same for each specific hero (regardless of rarity), and they always add up to 31 (before considering modifying factors).

Each hero's set of growth points can be seen on their respective hero page, the complete table can be found at Growth Point Table.

Modifiers[edit | edit source]

Factor Growth point
sum modifier
Dancer/Singer 0
Trainee +6
Ranged unit -3
Cavalry unit -1
Armored unit +2
Veteran -6
+0 Base, +2 GP +2
+1 Base, +1 GP +1
+1 Base, +2 GP +2

The most notable difference between these modifiers, and those for level 1 stat totals, is that veteran units, while starting strong, don't grow as much as trainees or young dragons, who instead start weak. For our example Jagen 4★:

Base GP Veteran Cavalry Final GP
31 - 6 - 1 = 24

These growth points are distributed in a predetermined way across the hero's stats, to influence how much they will grow for each stat.

Example[edit | edit source]

In Jagen's case, the growth points are distributed as follows.

HP Atk Spd Def Res Total
4 5 4 4 7 24

If a hero has a boon in a stat, that growth point is increased by one, while the growth point of their bane stat is decreased by one to balance it out. A Jagen with +HP and -Spd, for example, would have the following GP spread.

HP Atk Spd Def Res Total
5 5 3 4 7 24

Growth values[edit | edit source]

Each individual growth point is always a value from 1 to 12. A GP 1 stat can be shifted to GP 0 if that stat has a bane. These growth points determine by how much each stat will increase from level 1 to level 40, according to this table of growth values. Notice how the table is not uniform, which can lead to different stat totals at level 40, if a unit's boon or bane shifts a GP so that the resulting growth value changes more (or less) than usual. An example of this would be Fae's HP GP, which is 10, and can be shifted to 11 by a boon, which at rarity 4★ and 5★ increases the growth value by 3, as opposed to the standard 2.

GP 1★ 2★ 3★ 4★ 5★
0 6 7 7 8 8
1 8 8 9 10 10
2 9 10 11 12 13
3 11 12 13 14 15
4 13 14 15 16 17
5 14 15 17 18 19
6 16 17 19 20 22
7 18 19 21 22 24
8 19 21 23 24 26
9 21 23 25 26 28
10 23 25 27 28 30
11 24 26 29 31 33
12 26 28 31 33 35
13 28 30 33 35 37

Growth value example[edit | edit source]

Using the information about Jagen's rarity, base stats, growth points and the table of growth values, his max stats can be determined by addition of each growth value to its respective base stat as follows. Neutral on the left, +HP/-Spd on the right.

Data HP Atk Spd Def Res
4★ Base stats 19 8 6 7 11
Growth Points 4 5 4 4 7
4★ Growth Values 16 18 16 16 22
4★ Max Stats 35 26 22 23 33
Data HP Atk Spd Def Res
4★ Base stats 20 8 5 7 11
Growth Points 5 5 3 4 7
4★ Growth Values 18 18 14 16 22
4★ Max Stats 38 26 19 23 33


Notice how the base stat difference of plus or minus 1 effectively combines with the growth value difference of (in this case) plus or minus 2, to modify the max stats by +3 HP and -3 Spd.

Level 2-39 stats[edit | edit source]

stat values at intermediate levels are derived using pseudo-random growth vectors, hardcoded strings that indicate whether a stat will increase by 1 on a given level. Consider Jagen's neutral HP stat:

Level 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40
HP 19 20 21 21 21 21 21 22 22 22 22 22 22 22 23 23 23 24 24 25 26 26 27 28 29 29 30 30 31 32 32 33 33 33 34 34 34 35 35 35
Growth vector 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 0 1 0 0 1 0 0

Any two identical heroes with the same IV and rarity will receive the same stat growths at all levels. Thus, all 4★ Jagen units with neither a HP boon nor a HP bane will always have 27 HP at level 18. Because the contents of the growth vectors are seemingly random, it is possible that a hero's neutral stat is smaller than the bane stat or larger than the boon stat on the same level.

There are 64 possible growth vectors for each growth value from 1 to 39, shared across all stats. The exact growth vector to use depends on the stat type, the 5★ neutral base stat value, the growth point, the unit's rarity, plus another hidden hero parameter called base vector ID. This has several consequences:

  • The same growth vector could be used in different stats from multiple heroes.
  • Different stats of a hero never have identical growths if they have the same base values and GPs. They may have identical growths if only the GPs are equal; so far this applies to Chrom: Gifted Leader and Tiki: Dragon Scion.
  • Different heroes with identical stats and GPs will have different stat growths if their base vector IDs differ, such as Robin: High Deliverer and Robin: Mystery Tactician.
  • It is possible that two different heroes have the same base vector ID, and also happen to share equal base values and GPs for some stats. In these cases these stats will have identical values on all levels, all rarities, and all IVs. Examples are the Atk and Def stats of Leon and Luke.
