Fire Emblem Heroes has four distinct move types:
- Infantry - Units who can move two spaces at a time, but are slowed down by forests.
- Armored or armor(s) - Units who can move only one space at a time.
- Cavalry or cavalier(s) - Units who can move up to three spaces at a time, but cannot enter forests. They are also slowed down by trenches.
- Flying or flier(s) - Units who can move two spaces at a time, are unaffected by forests and can fly over mountains, pits, and water. However they are weak to bows.
