Anime Defenders Tier List FAQ

How do the Tiers Work?

Our tiers are ranked from best to worst and assess the overall usefulness of the ability.

  • S-Tier: These are the best-of-the-best and likely overpowered. If you get one of these, you should keep it and not change anything.
  • A-Tier: These are outstanding performers and would be a great addition to your character. Due to the rarity of an S-Tier, it might be better to just hold onto one of these because the other ones are so hard to get.
  • B-Tier: Can be good for a while, but you will likely want to upgrade these at some point.
  • C-Tier: While not great it at least functions as somewhat of an improvement to your character.
  • D-Tier: Worst of the worst and provides no benefit. Should be spun away as soon as possible.

How were the Rankings Decided?

When creating our tier lists, we strive to gather information from a variety of sources. Although our gameplay experience serves as one reference point, our primary goal is to create comprehensive lists that cater to a wide range of playstyles. To achieve this, we also consider the rankings and opinions of other players in the game community and use Discord, YouTube, and Reddit to get a conclusive tier list.

When is the Anime Defenders Tier List Updated?

Our team is committed to keeping the list current by regularly revising it to reflect new releases and balance changes. Therefore, we highly recommend that you check back periodically to stay updated with the latest rankings.

    Elf Wizardess is also not on this list

    I noticed that Warrior Princess is not on this tier list. It might just be because I checked before they updated it. But I am curious as to where it is on the list.

      Hey thanks for the comment, I’ll go add them! Yeah, so many units. I’ve put Warrior Princess and Elf Wizardless in B Tier but after they evolve they go straight into S Tier.
