Granblue Fantasy Tier List

Here is our tier list for Granblue Fantasy. You want the best possible characters, right? This tier list will help you optimize your gameplay and win.

Granblue Fantasy is a powerhouse game developed by Cygames with music from none other than the legendary Final Fantasy music composer, Nobuo Uematsu himself.

It is critically acclaimed thanks to its endearing plot partnered with an addictive gameplay loop.

On top of all this sits the game’s premiere draw to players: its rich cast of characters. Similar to other gacha games, players can use in-game currency (crystals or tickets, in this case) to summon a random character from the base pool of hundreds of units.

We’re going to rank these characters below in terms of their usefulness towards the end-game content.

Read on to find out in what units you should invest your time in GBF.

Note: Only Super Super Rare (SSR) and a few SR (Super Rare) units are included in this list. The unit’s rarity in Granblue Fantasy is a huge indication of strength in the game, so rarer units will always trump common ones.

Granblue Fantasy Tier List Tier D

You should swap these units out as soon as possible. Their stat and skill ceilings peak early on, so there’s not much sense investing in them for the end game.
