GranBlue Fantasy tier list - best characters to use

We have compared the characters on their base rarity, base stats, abilities, and community sentiments while building the GranBlue Fantasy tier list.

Updated on June 12th, 2024. Version: 1.19 - Added: Sandalphon

We have taken into account all the newest characters that were added to the turn-based RPG. With such an expansive cast of characters, it sure gets confusing to rate and categorize them into different tiers. We have considered several factors such as the base rarity, base stats, abilities, and community sentiments while building our rankings for the tier list. Simply scroll through the different tiers to find your favourite character.

However, if you're a fan of similar titles, you can rummage through the Snowbreak tier list first, and then maybe take a look at the Brown Dust 2 tier list, or Black Clover M tier list. Most of these are a tasty bite for any real fan of mobile anime games.

We have made a GranBlue Fantasy tier list based on rankings assigned to each character. This will also help players get a great idea of which characters they should add to their elemental formations when building their teams. It also helps segregate each character efficiently without disturbing the overall harmony of the tier list.

As with any tier list, they are subjective and not objective as not everybody will have access to the same roster of characters. For clarity purposes, the characters included in the S tier are currently considered as the strongest while those placed in the E tier are currently considered the weakest out of all. Naturally, we will make sure to update the rankings in case of future balance patches or the addition of new characters to the roster.

Without further ado, let’s get you to the GranBlue Fantasy tier list!

Metera is a Bow user that is classified as an Earth elemental Balanced type character. She excels as an Attacker/Debuffer in-game. Metera can beautifully make use of the item Aetherial Shaft to attack 2 times with all of her abilities due to being a damage dealer. She also has a stacked debuff heavy kit, being able to apply Charmed, Delay, Attack Down, Allure, and Paralyzed debuffs. Her utility in any team makes her a threat to allies if you lack a debuff cleanser or cycler. Alexiel is a standard Katana/Sabre user that is classified as an Earth elemental Defence type character. She excels as an Attacker/Support/Defender. Even though she was released long ago, she is still at the top of the GranBlue Fantasy tier list due to her loaded skill set. Her passive ability Uncrossable Realm provides all allies with a large amount of damage cut, mitigating more than half the incoming damage. Alexiel’s 3rd active skill Lagulf is a 6-hitter ability that can deal a ton of explosive damage, making her a top-tier party defender as well as a nuker for the team.

Yuel, Aqours Second-Years, Tabina, Drang, Ilsa, Mugen, Illnot, Tsubasa, Arulumaya, Diantha, Kallen
Sandalphon is a Sabre/Katana user that is classified as an Earth elemental Special type character. He excels as an Attacker/Debuffer in-game. Sandalphon is a direct power creep to existing crit rate based meta units as his passive allows him to have 100% critical hit rate from the get-go. He has a high damage multiplier cap, and deals double hits with all of his abilities, settling his place as one of the most coveted damage dealers in the game. His special ability Prisoners of War stops enemies from using their special skills.

Izmir is a Sabre user that is classified as a Water elemental Attack type character. She excels as an Attacker/Supporter in-game. Izmir is a self-buffer that can provide herself with stackable Attack to increase overall DPS output. By herself, Izmir can provide a lot of critical hit rates up to all allies! In short, she can enable low-quality grids with her skill set. Izmir also has great damage multipliers, not shying away from being able to burn out entire grids with her AOE abilities.

B Tier

Girld in red holding bear puppets in both hands
Charioce XVII, Lady Katapillar and Vira, Herja, Carmelina, Cure Black and Cure White, Freezie, Aquors Third-Years, Cucuroux, Nezahualpilli, Korwa
Conan Edogawa, Skull, Agielba, Owen, Yggdrasil, Yuisis, Pecorine, Forte, Lilele, Catherine, Tweyen
Suzaku Kururugi, Mikazuki Munechika, Lelouch Lamperouge, Chat Noir, Arisa, Chloe, Kaoru, Nina Dragon, Randall, Vanzza
Jin, Kaede Takagaki, Sophia Karyl, Ilsa, Arriet, Baotorda, Marquiares, Yaia, Feena, Cerberus
Razia, Juri, Walder, Christina, Aquors First-Years, Sen, Gachapin, Petra, Mirin
Cerberus is a Sabre user that is classified as a Dark elemental Special type character. She excels as an Attacker/Debuffer in-game. Cerberus is one of the few characters that can successfully triple attack on every turn due to her special effect called Pandemonium Roar. She is a single-target damage dealer who can be a monster if allowed to roam free on the battlefield. She also brings useful debuffs in her kit such as Debuff Resistance down, Blinded, and Charmed.

Catherine is a Gun user who is classified as an Earth elemental Special type character. He excels as an Attacker/Debuffer in-game. She is the only character in the game that brings the Enticed debuff which limits the number of attacks an enemy can do. She is also useful for PvE bosses as she can lock up to 2 bosses with her charms, but it depends on RNG.

C Tier

Male hero holding a flintlock and a sword
Aster, Minami Nitta, Nemone, Sevastien, Erica Fontaine, Shao, Friday, Leona, Almeida, Mikasa Nicholas
Sarunan, Miria Akagi, Ejaeli, Melleau, Shiki Ichinose, Tear Grants, Mika Jougasaki, Gemini Sunrise, Lowain, Galadar
Krugne, Vermeil, Will, Dante, Cailana, The Lowain Brothers, Helnar, Feather, Elize Lotus, Danua
Mina, Miku Maekawa, Arusha, Katalina, Ferry, Morphe and Phoebe, Sutera, Tyre, Meg, Lina
Elta, Ryu, Mimlemel and Stumpeye, Bridgette and Cordelia, Deliford, Izuminokami Kanesada, Sevilbarra, You, Goblin Mage
Sutera, Richard, Rin Shibuya, Naoise, Zaja
Tyre is a Sabre/Gun user that is classified as a Wind elemental Balanced type character. He excels as an Attacker/Support in-game. Tyre can help allies get more turns with his special ability Doubles which pushes the attack bar of a selected ally. He is a pair-based hero, which sadly means you need to use him with Vira as the main ally in order to make use of his full potential. Otherwise, he wouldn't be in the middle of the Granblue Fantasy tier list, but way lower. This would also mean sacrificing an important slot for a sub-par character.

Helnar is a Sabre user that is classified as a Wind elemental Balanced type character. He excels as an Attacker/Debuffer in-game. He is a decent single-target damage dealer who can stack up his Attack according to the number of female members in the party. He also grants a party-wide Triple Attack boost, a rare thing to observe with SR rarity characters.

  • Out of the above-mentioned characters, try to limit yourself to building only SSR characters, as the rest of the low rarity characters are power crept. They provide no value in team-building, if you’re serious regarding your progression. Avoid sinking your resources into these characters.

    E Tier

    Cute girl in a schoolgirl uniform
    Anna, Pengy, Paris, Aster, Sachiko Koshizimu, Ange, Teru Tendo, Volenna, Syr
    Rita, Sarya, Haohmaru, Ludmila, Dorothy, Joy

    All of the characters at the bottom of the GranBlue Fantasy tier list are sub-par and below average. Try to avoid building them at all costs as you will soon require an upgrade on your adventures. The majority of them are given for free and have a worthless skillset. Avoid spending your precious resources training them as well.

    I've enjoyed playing games ever since I was a kid (which was a long long time ago at this point). It all started off with an Atari 65XE, then came an Amiga 500+, a Sega Genesis, a 386, and the rest was history. I consider myself lucky to have been able to experience the gaming evolution over the years - this is my passion, and what I will continue to do for as long as I can.
