When creating a Deck, only one Hero can be selected. All Heroes are set to one Element which cannot be changed, but players may still create a deck with cards of a different element. Heroes can be further customized via the selection of Hero Skins, though this does not change how the Hero behaves during a match.
New Heroes are periodically added via expansions which are usually tied to the Hero's game series. Every Hero can be played as soon as they are released with no additional purchase, they each come with their own set of Basic Cards and "default deck" which are also unlocked by default, though the Hero Arts must be unlocked via leveling. All of them also have their own Hero Story.
Currently, there are a total of 16 Heroes.
After a hundred years of slumber, the divine guardian—who once saved the land of Amatsu no Kuni—returns to defend mankind from evil. Joined by her loudmouthed partner, the goddess embarks on a journey to purge the darkness.
