GBF Tier List: Best Characters Ranked & Compared

Our tier list is going to focus on ranking all characters available in the game by placing them into five different tiers.

Granblue Fantasy, popularly known as GBF, allows players to select from more than 300 characters. As you might have already guessed, this ends up making players confused while choosing the characters. This is because they can’t decide which ones to pick and which ones to avoid. Well, to help such players out, we are going to write down a GBF tier list in which we are going to rank down all characters in a proper format.

Update: We’ve carefully reviewed our Tier List to make sure it matches all the character changes in the newest Update 1.30.

Key Highlights

  • Granblue Fantasy (GBF) offers players a massive character roster that extends to more than 300 characters spread across multiple Types, Playstyles, and Races. 
  • Characters are ranked based on the mass opinion about their performances and convenience of use. 
  • Metera, Anila, Shiva, Zeta, and Siegfried are your best bet for winning in GBF.
  • GBF characters that will let you down most of the time include Ludmila, Sachiko Koshimizu, and Rita.

In order to make things easier for our readers, we are going to divide the characters into six different tiers. The strongest ones will be placed in the first tier, while the weakest ones will earn a spot in the last tier. Having said that, do keep in mind that our tier list is totally based on our personal choice. Some of you might find certain characters not belonging to a specific tier, and that is okay. This is because the choice varies from person to person. So without any further due, let’s dive into the tier list.
