The Fire Emblem Heroes Damage Calculator helps you determine the damage dealt or taken during a battle in the game. By inputting the appropriate values for both attacking and defending scenarios, you can calculate the impact of various stats and bonuses on the outcome of combat.

## Understanding Damage Calculation

Damage calculation in Fire Emblem Heroes is crucial for strategizing and maximizing your effectiveness in battles. This calculator accounts for various factors, including attack power, bonuses, and defense capabilities. Whether you’re preparing for a battle or evaluating a previous one, accurate damage calculations can significantly impact your game strategy.

## Attack Calculation

To calculate the damage dealt during an attack, you need to consider the attacker’s strength, attack bonuses, and the target’s defense. The effective attack is calculated by multiplying the attackerâ€™s strength by the attack bonus percentage. The damage dealt is then the result of subtracting the target’s defense from this effective attack, ensuring it is not negative.

## Defense Calculation

For calculating damage taken, you need the defender’s strength, defense bonuses, and the attacker’s attack power. The effective defense is determined by multiplying the defender’s strength by the defense bonus percentage. The damage taken is calculated by subtracting this effective defense from the attackerâ€™s attack power, ensuring that the result is not negative.

## Example Calculation

To demonstrate, suppose an attacker has a strength of 100 and an attack bonus of 20%, and is attacking a target with a defense of 80. The effective attack would be 100 * (1 + 0.20) = 120. Therefore, the damage dealt would be 120 – 80 = 40.

In another scenario, if a defender has a strength of 90 and a defense bonus of 15%, facing an attacker with 130 attack power, the effective defense would be 90 * (1 + 0.15) = 103.5. The damage taken would be 130 – 103.5 = 26.5.

## FAQ

**1. How is effective attack calculated?**

Effective attack is calculated by multiplying the attacker’s base strength by the attack bonus percentage, converting the bonus to a decimal (e.g., 20% becomes 0.20), and then adding it to the base strength.

**2. What if the damage dealt is negative?**

In the case where damage dealt is negative, it is adjusted to zero since damage cannot be negative in the game.

**3. Can this calculator be used for other games?**

This calculator is specifically designed for Fire Emblem Heroes. However, similar principles can be applied to other games with comparable damage calculation mechanics.

**4. How can I use this calculator to improve my strategy?**

By accurately calculating the potential damage outcomes, you can adjust your strategies to optimize attack and defense, making more informed decisions in battles.

**5. Is this calculator accurate?**

The calculator provides estimates based on the inputs given. For the most precise results, verify with in-game data and statistics.
