Heroini is a fish tribe from the Cichlasomatinae subfamily in the cichlid family. It includes more than 150 species. All cichlids from islands in the Caribbean, USA (southern Texas), Mexico and Central America are members of this tribe, but it also includes species from South America where other tribes exist. A large percentage of its species were formerly placed in the genus Cichlasoma (itself now placed in the tribe Cichlasomatini), but have since been moved to other genera.
