Important notes[edit]

  • The value and usefulness of a character varies based on your rank, your team, fight length, fight mechanics and how you play.
  • Each element is evaluated on its own. A 9.5 rating in Fire is not the same as 9.5 in Water.
  • The rating reflects the median usefulness of a character. A character may lose points for being hard to use or fit in a team, or gain points for being strong against Magnas. Judging a character by HL usefulness alone may be unhelpful as HL teams tend to deviate from other content.
  • The Eternals have their own rating system separate from other characters.
  • At the end of the day this is just a tool to help you find useful characters.

Please see this page for further notes

Rating range for each rarity[edit]

SSR Characters[edit]

SSR characters score 7 to 10 points.
However, only characters that affect the balance of the game as a whole may score 10 points.

For SSR characters an easy way to read these ratings are:

10 rating Gamebreaking
9.5 rating Vital in many team setups
9.0 rating Fills the gaps between 9.5 characters
8.5 rating Useful for specific fights or challenges
8.0 rating For teams lacking something or rare circumstances
7.5 rating Should have been an SR.
7.0 rating Garbage

SR Characters[edit]

SR characters score 4.5 to 8.5 points.

8.5 rating Outperform SSR characters with proper setup.
8.0 rating Can compete with standard SSR characters for party slots.
7.5 rating Higher SR standard. No real faults, and can complement a team well.
7.0 rating Middle SR standard. Competent functionality.
6.5 rating Lower SR standard. May perform a role decently, but will never excel.
6.0 rating Functional, but easily overshadowed.
5.5 rating The minimum SR usefulness.
5.0 rating Ask for a refund.
4.5 rating Garbage to detrimental. More trouble than they're worth.

R Characters[edit]

R characters score 3 to 6.5 points.

6.5 rating As useful as an SR character
6.0 rating Outstanding for an R character. Exhibit a special feature or exploit that gives them an edge.
5.5 rating Functionally equivalent to and typically able to replace a low-tier SR Character.
5.0 rating Useful kits that can fit well into team compositions.
4.5 rating Usable in standard situations.
4.0 rating Serviceable but lack outstanding contributions to the team.
3.5 rating Detrimental to themselves.
3.0 rating Detrimental to the team.

Melissabelle Label Type Attack.png
Label Race Harvin.png
Label Weapon Sabre.png
9.0
  • Role: Attacker
  • Her skills require a few casts (five for Right Hairsaber and four for Left Hairsaber) to reach maximum damage output.
  • With her Charge Attack lowering her skill cooldowns by 2 turns and a passive that has a chance to lower them another turn, it is possible for her skills to reach the hit cap much earlier than normal.
  • Her first skill fills her charge bar but is on a very long cooldown and costs 20% of her maximum HP. Without a way to keep her from taking damage, it may do more harm than good to use it.
  • Relatively low damage output that gets outshined by other Wind attackers.
