A Hero is Born
was an official contest, created by Ironhide Game Studio with the goal of creating a hero based on a series of choices made exclusively by fans of the game.

The process of creation took place over several weeks where each stage of the hero was decided on by use of polls. Aside from the developers writing the poll fields themselves (with many of the entries being based on suggestions from members of the forums), they had no other influence on the voting, leaving it up to the fans to pick which option they most wanted to win. Ater voting, fans were encouraged to discuss the poll on the Ironhide Community Forums.

When the voting came to an end, the Hero would be developed and released for free in a future update of Kingdom Rush: Origins.
