GBF Tier List

gbf tier list

Our GBF Tier List will help you decide which heroes you’ll want to use to breeze through even the game’s most difficult battles.

Granblue Fantasy (GBL) is a 2D turn base RPG browser game which can also be played on mobile devices. Since its initial release, back in 2014, GBL has managed to capture the hearts of millions of players worldwide and steadily become one of the most popular RPGs in many countries. Granblue Fantasy is a fantastic game with characters in high-end anime art style, spectacular fights, an immersive narrative and engaging content that centers around one thing – its heroes, which are the heart and soul of how you play the game.

GBL delivers a highly entertaining but also demanding environment. Although there is no such thing as the best hero in the game, since in order to build great teams you must focus on their synergies rather than individual hero rankings, there are so many to choose from, each with their own unique abilities and perks. Furthermore the game allows some of them to shine more than others. So at first glance it can feel pretty daunting to decide which of these to select.

Our GBL Tier List aims to guide you select heroes that best fit in with your personal play style for achieving the best gaming experience available.

Our Rankings

S+ Tier – Very Overpowered
S Tier – Overpowered, these heroes are dominant. If you want to win, you can never go wrong choosing any of them
A Tier – Perfectly Balanced, these powerful heroes are popular choices. While not the very best, will often give you a slight edge if you select them
B Tier – Slightly Underpowered, these heroes are average. While they will not give you an edge in battle, they will not hold you back either
C Tier – Underpowered, the use of these heroes is situational. Some of them are great against certain opponents, while others are simply less efficient than most heroes in the roster. Either way, these heroes are less common picks
D/E Tier – Very Underpowered, these heroes are considered the weakest. Consider selecting another hero, unless you are experienced enough to utilize their skillset efficiently
F Tier – Typically Useless Heroes

Heroes Tier List

As mentioned earlier, Granblue Fantasy is a team based game. As such, team synergy and coordination are the building blocks to achieve victory. That is why we rank each hero based mainly on the value they provide to the team and not so on their individual raw power and popularity. Heroes who synergize better with a larger group of teammates are naturally ranked higher.

You will probably obtain more than a hundred units throughout your adventures in GBF. So it will be really challenging to prioritize who to raise. To aid you in this task we have ranked all units based on how powerful they can become when maxed out. So our ratings are based on the character’s highest uncap level. Some character abilities may be dramatically different before reaching maximum level.

Heroes in Granblue Fantasy can fulfill the following roles.

  • Defender – Heroes that protect their team from incoming attacks. They have lots of HP and armor so they usually last longer than others in fights. In turn they usually do not do much damage.
  • Attacker – Pure offensive heroes that deal massive damage to opponents using skills and physical/magical attacks.
  • Support – Support heroes provide buffs and utility skills to other allies.
  • Debuffer – Heroes that provide de-buffs and other status-changing abilities to opponents.
  • Healer – Heroes that focus on healing allies and mitigating the damage dealt to the party.

In order to better utilize each hero and build efficient teams, please keep the following in mind.

  • Given that there are no specific classes to categorize heroes under, the choice in assembling your team is largely based on hero skillset in addition to the elements they are attuned to. So each hero can fulfill multiple roles, for example they can be a damage dealer in one fight and a debuffer in another
  • High rating characters are not always as useful as lower rating ones, mainly due to enemy resistances or specific hero weaknesses. So although rarity impacts a hero’s overall strength, using only SSR heroes across all battles will not always yield the expected results. In the vast majority of cases, no same hero or team will manage to perform efficiently against every battle
  • When you feel stuck, not able to defeat some hard opponents, it will be better to form up an elemental team including SR characters, in place of SSR ones, that will synergize well with each other

We update our GBF tier list frequently to reflect the latest game meta. Keep in mind that heroes placement inside a specific tier is NOT important. Heroes are positioned randomly within a specific tier thus their placement does not show that they are better or more popular than others in the same tier. So without further ado, let’s dive into our GBF Tier List.
