A hero is a special unit, typically a named historical, mythological, or sometimes fictional figure. Usually, heroes are not available in random map games, but often appear in campaign scenarios as key figures. The most important heroes are often "must-survive" heroes; that is, the game is lost if they are killed. However, Heroes in Age of Mythology are one of the core unit types in regular gameplay, in addition to some heroes existing solely in campaigns to drive the plot just like other games. Heroes in Age of Empires IV are called leaders.
