Unlike other RPGs with large casts, not every character you recruit in Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is playable. Some serve a support role that will give you bonuses when they are in your party or help maintain your base, though a vast majority are fighters with varying classes.

Whether you want to use the characters you like or build a party of the strangest classes—like a Magical Girl or literal mythical creators—here’s a list of every hero in Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes and how to recruit them.
