Fire Emblem Heroes’ Choose Your Legends Round 5 voting results are here, and Marth, Gatekeeper, Marianne and Eirika are this year’s winners. The announcement, part of the February 1, 2021 Feh Channel video, means the four characters will appear in the game with special outfits later in the year.
Gatekeeper became a fan-favorite character from Fire Emblem: Three Houses despite not being playable. He grabbed a first-place finish in the first year he made the list in Choose Your Legends as a voting option. Gatekeeper fans voted for him 72,267 times to get the upbeat soldier into the game.
After four years of just missing out in Choose Your Legends, Marth finished in the top two. He placed second in the men’s division with 46,699 votes. Marth is the protagonist in the Fire Emblem franchise’s early entries (like the recently localized Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light). He gained Western popularity through his appearance in Super Smash Bros., and first appeared elsewhere in the West in 2008’s Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. He beat out Fire Emblem: Awakening’s Chrom and Three Houses’ male Byleth for the spot.
The first place heroine, Marianne, garnered 33,555 votes. She was third behind fellow Three Houses character Byleth in the midterm results. Eirika, a main character in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, finished second in the women’s division with 31,875 votes. She placed fifth in last year’s voting.
The full listing of results can be found at the official Choose Your Legends site.
Fire Emblem Heroes is available on iOS and Android. Intelligent Systems will add the Choose Your Legends winners to the game later in 2021.
