The tier lists on this page are subjective in nature, and are the products of their individual authors. You can only trust a tier list as much as you trust its author.
Tier lists reflect the understanding on relative character strength at the time that they are written. Metas can develop and characters can change after a tier list is made.
Tier lists usually do not account for character difficulty, but that can sometimes be a factor depending on the author.
Depending on your goals and how competitive you are, tier lists may or may not be entirely irrelevant.

Dustloop Aggregate List

This list is constructed by Dustloop editors through combining the tier lists currently on this page that were made after the Ver 1.31 character patch of June 2022. Please investigate other lists yourself as well instead of taking this as fact.

Last Update: 11/05/2022.

Characters received points based on placements in other Ver 1.31 lists currently featured on this page.

  • +3 for appearing in a "top tier" or SS tier.
  • +2 for appearing in S tier
  • +1 for appearing in A tier
  • ±0 for appearing in B tier
  • -1 for appearing in C tier and below. This includes the "N/A" category.
  • Tier categories with + or -'s are ignored, so an S+ tier is just an S tier.

The average post-June 2022 tier list in this page has 2 or 3 legible tier categories, plus additional spaces for top and bottom characters.
