Heroes, the playable characters in Idle Heroes, are classified into six Faction types: Shadow, Fortress, Abyss, Forest, Dark, and Light. Each of these types brings a unique approach towards assembling groups of heroes together for battle, especially with PvP and PvE in mind, which are two of the core contributing factors in defining the top Heroes to gravitate towards in this best-of list — arranged from least to best. Additionally, Hero potential, application in battle, and upgrade capability are also considered.
