The Hero (Japanese: 主人公 Protagonist) is a Warlord that appears in Pokémon Conquest if the player's selected gender is male. He is the only character in the game who can be named by the player, and is the main character under the player's control in the game's initial story, The Legend of Ransei.

His counterpart is the Heroine.

Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

The Hero starts off in the nation of Aurora with their partner Eevee, having just become the most recent Warlord. The Hero meets up with Mitsunari, Kiyomasa, and Masanori, who taunt him, stating that he isn't ready to be a Warlord. At this point, two Warriors from the neighboring nation of Ignis quickly challenge the Hero to battle. Oichi joins in the battle to support the Hero.

After defeating the duo, Oichi relays the details of the legend of Ransei, and sets the Hero off on a quest to unite the 17 nations. Upon conquering the final nation, the Hero has the chance to link with Arceus. When the player successfully links with Arceus, Nobunaga appears and challenges the Hero's party to a final battle, along with , Ieyasu, Mitsuhide, Hideyoshi, and Ranmaru.

Upon defeating Nobunaga, the Hero brings peace to the land of Ransei, allowing each Warlord leader to rule their respective nations once again. Arceus goes off, telling the Hero it will appear again when the time is right.

Arceus and the Hero (Rank II)

While the Hero is in the army and does not possess an Eevee, there is a chance that a swarm of Eevee will appear in a Park location in kingdoms that have one (namely: Pugilis, Terrera, Cragspur, Viperia, and Valora). This is the only way for wild Eevee to spawn without the use of passwords.
