Basics[edit | edit source]

The Voting Gauntlet is a special event where eight Heroes battle it out tournament-style to determine the most popular amongst them over three rounds with each round lasting forty-five hours.

To participate in the event, players must:

1. Select a hero to support.
Players must choose a hero to support and join their army. Once a player selects a hero, they cannot change armies unless the chosen hero army loses.

2. Win battles against rival hero armies.
Once a round starts, players will have the option to battle the opposing army. Battles are 3-on-3 on a regular map, randomly chosen, and the teams are automatically created using:

  • Leftmost hero on the team a player selects (NOT the leftmost hero on the first team. Any team can be selected.)
  • Random friend's leader
  • The leader of someone else in player's army

The 3 enemy units and the friendly unit from someone in player's army who is not on the player's friend list are chosen based on the level of player's unit -- matching player unit's strength. Thus, if the leaders of player's friends are all level 40, the Voting Gauntlet battles can be made trivially easy by using low level units. e.g. a lvl 1 3-star dancer; a mid level unit with many skills unlocked.

After heading into battle, the player must wait 30 minutes to battle again. However, if the player loses a battle, they can choose to deploy their Heroes again immediately.

3. Cast votes to increase an army's score.

If the player wins a battle, they can then cast votes to increase the chosen hero army's score. Votes can be boosted by achieving the following conditions:

  • Boost for every friend a player has (Up to 10 friends)
  • 1.1x boost if a player's lead hero is the same as the Hero of the army they joined (eg. Using Sharena as a lead hero while supporting Sharena's hero army)
  • Boost by using Battle Flags to multiply votes.

Unlike the Arena, casualties will not affect the points a player can earn in the Voting Gauntlet.

4. Turn a disadvantage into an advantage.

If your selected army is at a disadvantage, the points counted when you vote will be multiplied by (3.1 + duration × 0.1). Since a round lasts for 45 hours, this bonus can reach up to 7.5x.

  • These points count toward your personal score as well.
  • Every hour on the hour, each teams points are totalled and if a team is losing by a certain percentage, then they are given the disadvantage multiplier for the next hour (2 times max per player)


A player can still join partway even if they did not participate in previous rounds.
Heroes will not gain experience points or skill points during Voting Gauntlet battles.

Battle Flags[edit | edit source]

Battle Flags can be used to multiply a player's votes and boost the score for their hero army.

Battle Flags can be obtained through:


Additionally, these Battle Flags can only be used for the current Voting Gauntlet and cannot be saved for future events.

Voting Gauntlet Quests[edit | edit source]

These are quests which can be done in between Voting Gauntlet rounds to gain more Battle Flags. These include tasks such as completing Training Tower Stratum Levels, winning Arena duels, or participating in the Voting Gauntlet itself.

For a list of current Voting Gauntlet quests (If Voting Gauntlet is currently running), see the Quests and Missions page.

Strategy & Tips[edit | edit source]

The monthly Voting Gauntlet is a main source of Hero Feathers. Some general strategies can help maximizing feather gain.

The primary strategy is to

  • only use Battle Flags when player's army is at an disadvantage; and to
  • conserve (at least a portion of) Battle Flags for the second day of any round when disadvantage multiplier is the highest.

Also remember to

  • use the hero the player is supporting whenever possible.

It can be tricky to catch the best multipliers in a close match -- and flat-out impossible in a winning army with overwhelming advantage. Thus, if the player is able to complete all Voting Gauntlet Quests and track the scores reasonably frequently, it is generally more lucrative to

  • be on the losing army at least once.
  • Selecting the hero to support late based on then current scores,

ie. on the second day of the round or late on the first day, can also be a sound practice. The scores can be checked at Nintendo's Voting Gauntlet webpage.
