So far, all "Heroic" monsters are EARTH-Attribute monsters, except for "Heroic Champion - Excalibur" who is a LIGHT-Attribute monster and "Number 86: Heroic Champion - Rhongomiant" which is of the DARK-Attribute.
The "Heroic" archetype is easily discerned from others by their ability to create monsters with extremely high attack without any need of a previous setup to reach this. That does not mean that this is the only tactic at their disposal. A large number of "Heroic" cards also have effects that stop your opponent utilizing low-Level Special Summons and defensive tactics, prevent your opponent from destroying yours by battle and even cause your opponent to suffer equally from attacks where they would usually win.
