The Best Characters In Granblue Fantasy Relink [Tried And Tested]

I came up with this list after playing through multiple story chapters using various characters.

There are around 19 characters in Granblue Fantasy Relink and each has its own distinctive playstyle but only a few can be crowned the best of the best. With such a huge character roster, the game contains a character for every type of player and you can choose how you want to play the story.

Key Takeaways
  • The best characters in Granblue Fantasy Relink will allow players to shred bosses.
  • Players can create the ultimate party using the strongest characters they can recruit.
  • Only 6 characters are available at the start, and players must recruit the rest using crewmate cards.
  • Some characters are strong for killing bosses while others are great for dealing with gank fights.
  • My favorite character is Lancelot because he is damage-focused and can melt bosses’ health bars.

1. Vane

The Best Overall Character.

  • Why I Chose This Character: Vane is the most balanced character with almost no weaknesses which is why I used him in the toughest boss battles.

Tanks are pretty rare in titles like Granblue Fantasy Relink, but thankfully, Vane is present this time and is an extremely strong tank character. He has extremely strong attacks that fill up his combo bar, which can then be used to heal the character with more attacks once the combo bar gets filled.

Not only can his skills deal massive damage to bosses, but they can also heal the character, making Vane an unstoppable tank. He can even survive a fatal hit at low health and create an AOE barrier protecting his whole team from enemy attacks. Overall, Vane is the best character choice for post-endgame content after you finish the story and unlock raids.

  • Strong attacks.
  • Combo bar for healing.
  • Skills to protect the whole party.
  • Can survive fatal hits at low health.
  • Skills need to be changed according to the situation.

2. Lancelot

The Best Damage Character.

  • Why I Chose This Character: Lancelot was such a huge help during my early game; I easily defeated most of the story bosses while using him.

Damage-wise, Lancelot is undoubtedly the strongest character in Granblue Fantasy Relink and is my favorite choice. He is the only character in the game who can dodge infinitely within combos and his attacks get stronger the longer you combo them.

Lancelot can be essentially used to melt boss health bars, especially during the early game. As soon as you get your hands on a crewmate card, you should recruit Lancelot to your party.

  • Attacks get stronger with time.
  • Infinite dodges.
  • Can easily catch up to bosses.
  • Powerful skills.
  • Difficult to master combo timing.

3. Cagliostro

The Best Mage Character.

  • Why I Chose This Character: Cagliostro is an amazing character with both offensive and defensive playstyles and her spells allowed me to deal with bosses from range.

Even though Cagliostro is a hybrid mage character, she possesses offensive and defensive abilities. Her skills can not only support the entire team but can also be used to deal big damage to enemies and bosses in Granblue Fantasy Relink.

My only gripe with this character is that the offensive spells need to be aimed, and damage-dealing attacks need to be charged which can be really tough on agile bosses. Otherwise, she can put debuffs on enemies and can bless her own party with buffs.

  • Offensive and defensive play styles.
  • Buff party members.
  • Debuff enemies.
  • Offensive spells need to be aimed.
  • Damage-dealing shots need to be charged.

4. Rosetta

The Best AOE Character.

  • Why I Chose This Character: Rosetta continued to stay in my party for most of the story and I was even using her as a main in levels where gank fights were common.

The best part about using Rosetta is that not only do you get a strong AOE character but also that she is available to use right from the start and you do not need to spend any crewmate cards to get her. She is an exceptional character for dealing with ganks and low-level fodders because her skills can create roses around the battlefield which keep damaging opponents.

Even her basic attacks can deal damage from range and her combos can create even more roses. Her only weakness is that you really can’t main her in a boss fight. Even though she’s a great character in clearing ganks, she is not that effective against bosses as a main.

  • Effective AOE attacks.
  • Can heal the team.
  • Easily clears ganks.
  • Not so effective against bosses.

5. Main Character

The Best Support Character.

  • Why I Chose This Character: I mained the protagonist until the mid-game and was basically forced to keep them in the party due to the significance of the plot but thankfully, they turned out to be a great support character. 

The main character is the one that you choose at the beginning of the story. It can be a male or a female depending on your choice but that does not change his/her moveset. Aside from being a great captain during the early game, the protagonist is the perfect support for your party if you decide to main another character.

He/she has amazing healing skills that can regenerate health for your entire party, which can become extremely useful during exceptionally tough boss battles. The protagonist can even put debuffs on enemies and buff their team.

  • Great main for the early game.
  • Amazing support skills.
  • Not so effective as a main in the end-game.
