Voting Period 01/22/2021 ~ 01/29/2021

Just like previous Choose Your Legends events, the 1st and 2nd characters from the Male and Female categories will have their Brave alt later on this year!

What is Choose Your Legends?

It is basically a popularity contest and the 4 most popular heroes will get their Brave alt as stated earlier. Brave alts are specially designed art wise and are generally very powerful units on the battlefield! They can be the cornerstone of a great team and if your favorite gets a Brave alt, by all means invest some orbs into getting them! It will make your experience playing Fire Emblem Heroes (FEH) a lot more enjoyable.

Go forth and vote for your favorite characters! The stakes might not be high, but you have nothing to lose and the idea of your favorite character getting a Brave alt is very promising.

Choose Your Legends 5 (CYL5) Procedures & Details

Vote Methods

This is illustrated in detail at the end of the article, but you can choose from 2 voting methods. Choose by Game Title or Random Selection are your choices. They are pretty self explanatory, the former lets you choose manually and the latter saves you time.

Vote once a day!

You can vote once a day and because the voting period is 7 days, you can cast a total of 7 votes for Choose Your Legends 5!

Log-in to your Nintendo Mobile account!

Unlike other CYL events, CYL5 now requires you to log-in to your Nintendo Mobile account. As compensation, rewards are now distributed to your Nintendo Mobile account and by extension to your Fire Emblem Heroes (FEH) profile. If you have not linked your Fire Emblem Heroes (FEH), we strongly recommend that you do so not only to protect your profile, but to also be able to claim your rewards!

Reward 1 - Get 100 Platinum Points!

Previous CYL winners or heroes that already have a Brave alt unfortunately cannot be voted for again in CYL5 and most likely in the next CYL events to come. Find another character to vote for if your favorite already won CYL before. If you are having a hard time choosing, you can always use the random vote feature to save time.

Characters that get Combined Votes Across Fire Emblem Titles
Marth Icon Marth
Finn Icon Finn
Titania Icon Titania
Merlinus Icon Merlinus

Heroes who appear in multiple titles will have their votes combined. However, the game where they are voted in will still matter as the Brave alt will be based on the version of them in the game that they were most voted in. However, there are some special cases for specific character clauses and these are the rules from the CYL5 website.

CYL5 Voting Period Summary

The trend for CYL events is that only the most popular heroes get voted in to qualify for the Brave alt. Though we strongly urge everyone to not give up and voice out your votes in different social media outlets. The CYL website features buttons that make it easy for users to share their votes to specific social media so nothing is stopping you from sharing!

Heroes that get implemented into the game usually score high in CYL voting so even if your favorite character does not enter as a Brave unit, at least they are finally in the game! One great example of this is Jorge, a somewhat unknown character, but nevertheless scored very high in the last CYL4 voting and got implemented into the game as a free Grand Hero Battle unit.
