A Hero Challenge is a type of challenge which debuted in Survivor: Carthage. In this, each tribe only selects one member to compete on behalf of the entire tribe.

A Mystery Hero Challenge is a variant of the standard Hero Challenge, in which the challenge is not known to the players before the representatives are selected. The challenge is then revealed to the representatives once they are chosen.
