Fire Emblem Heroes Adds Hel General Lif as Latest Mythic Hero


Intelligent Systems announced today that the latest Fire Emblem Heroes Mythic Hero that will be featured at the Mythic Hero banner this month will be Líf, the mysterious general of Hel’s forces. Lif first appeared during mobile game’s Book III campaign as an opponent. (Saying anything more would be a spoiler!)

Líf: Lethal Swordsman

Líf is an Anima season Mythic Hero, meaning that he will provide Defense bonuses in one of the game’s main PvP mode, Aether Raids. His deadly weapon, Sokkrvabekkr, might seem bad due to its damage to nearby allies, but this can be wisely used to activate skills with HP conditions like Desperation and Wrath. Additionally, his personal skill Deadly Balance makes it so that when above 50% HP or when inflicted with penalties, he’ll be able to retaliate with Open the Future immediately to regain HP.

Here is the full list of Heroes who will be featured on Líf’s Mythic Hero banner:


  • Líf: Lethal Swordsman
  • Eliwood: Blazing Knight
  • Byleth: Proven Professor


  • Ephraim: Legendary Lord
  • Lucina: Glorious Archer
  • Lukas: Buffet for One


  • Hector: Marquess of Ostia
  • Yune: Chaos Goddess
  • Hilda: Idle Maiden


  • Leif: Unifier of Thracia
  • Loki: The Trickster
  • Caineghis: Gallia’s Lion King

Apart from the Mythic Hero banner, the next four characters to receive Weapon Refinery updates have been announced: Laslow, Barst, Jakob, and Morgan (F).

Four new weapons will be added for Laslow, Barst, Jakob, and Morgan (F) respectively: Laslow’s Blade, Devil Axe, Jakob’s Tray, and Father’s Tactics. Each of these weapons can be refined via the Weapon Refinery for a stat boost or a unique effect.
