Brave Frontier Tier List

Not all units are made equal in Brave Frontier. Here is the ultimate Brave Frontier tier list, that we keep up-to-date to ensure perfect accuracy.

Since its release in 2013, Brave Frontier has always been about maximizing your party to become the best summoner you can be.

With thousands of units to summon, layers of strategy to build on and deep lore, it’s hard not to feel overwhelmed, especially if you’re a beginner.

The good news is that, as with all other competitive games, there’s still a reliable meta for Brave Frontier.

Even with a huge summon pool, it’s possible to rank the units according to their element, utility, party compatibility and end-game potential.

Here is the most up-to-date Brave Frontier unit tier list for 2021.

These are units that stand out from the rest of their element group. Because of their outstanding damage/buff/defense stats, most of them shine in their specialized roles as nukers or mitigators; and can even excel in all-around roles for the party.

If you’re lucky enough to acquire the base versions of these units, it’s imperative to grow and keep them in your party rotation.

These key units excel in their respective roles, with some outliers having huge potential as a “jack-of-all-trades” type of unit.  

It’s essential to raise these units as well because they serve as good complementary pieces to your S-rank units, or even as viable replacements, depending on your party composition.

B-Tier

Brave Frontier Tier List B Tier

These units are good in the roles they were made for, but they have certain flaws that can hinder the overall synergy of your party.

These flaws could range from below-average stat growths to an extremely situational skill pool. They’re worth raising, but their subpar growths prevent them from ascending into A-tier.  

In a game like Brave Frontier, where you never know what you’re going to get out of every summon, B-tier units help round out your roster for the end game.

They have a niche use case, but still have high value in certain scenarios if the player knows how to use them in combination with other higher-ranked units.

C-Tier

Brave Frontier Tier List C Tier

We’ve arrived at the middle-of-the-crop. These units can get you through most of the PvE stuff in the game but they’re not recommended for competitive play in the Arena or Colosseum.

Consider raising these if you have terrible luck in summoning higher-tiered units. As we’ve mentioned, these can power you through most of the game, but you’ll have a tougher time in special events and high-level quests since these units’ stats have simply fallen off the game’s meta.

These units are acceptable in your roster only if you have a specific intended use for them. Overall, they wouldn’t be able to excel in any conventional party setup anyway, so think hard whether it’s worth your time to raise them or not.  

You will likely pass on these most of the time because there are simply better units in their element.

Some Insights On The List

It’s interesting to see that the tiers with the least number of units are S and F.

This accentuates the core of Brave Frontier’s gameplay loop: balanced luck. It’s extremely satisfying when you summon a high-tier unit, but equally disappointing when you get one that’s at the bottom of the rankings.

These moments are rare, so there’s always that added suspense whenever you summon.

The fact that there are so many units in tier A compared to S shows that Brave Frontier is focused on keeping the player wanting more, while also shifting the game’s balance in favor of the player.

Sure, you can breeze through the game with A-tier units – but what would it feel like to dominate with a party of S-tiers?

This loop of expectations and rewards is what makes Brave Frontier fun to play. It doesn’t give you the best units right away, but it also doesn’t frustrate you by constantly giving you useless units.  

Methodology

This list is consistent with the 2021 meta and base summoning pool, which means that some newer units (and a few seasonal ones) might be excluded.

This tier list also focuses on units the player will want to invest in when building an end-game party, meaning monsters, items, and units that are too weak are excluded because they have other uses outside of battle.
