Grimlight Tier List: Ranking All Heroes [Nov. 2022]

Our Grimlight Tier List ranks all Grimlight Heroes in tiers from best to worst. The tiers range from S Tier, the best, to C Tier, which means “Not viable” or “Useless at the moment”. This tier list was made through proper research and hands-on experience. Moreover, If you like tier lists such as these, you will love our Counterside Global and Dislyte tier lists.

Grimlight is a recently launched Fantasy JRPG for IOS and Android. Published by EIGHT STUDIO, this fantasy title offers players a peek inside the world of Phantasia. Phantasia is a land of dreams and fairy tales filled with mysterious stories, wondrous quests, and beautiful scenery. 

However, evil darkness comprised of shadowy entities known as “The Dreamless” has spread its roots across the land, leaving all the dominion lords and even protectors and saviors of the land ineffective. The main objective of Grimlight is to rid Phantasia of this evil darkness and prevent it from corrupting the land and turning it into an endless void.

This goal can only be achieved by the player character, which is known as “The Dreamer“, working with the Heroes of the land.

You can call upon these “Heroes” from many well-known stories and tales to help you, the Dreamer, in your quest to save the world. Furthermore, the world of Phantasia offers a wide array of different heroes from many different stories, offering “Snow White” from “Sleeping Beauty“, “Beast” from “Beauty and the Beast”, even “Robin Hood“, and a lot more.

The game takes place inside the world of Phantasia. This world is like a collection of all fantasy tales from animated and live-action movies such as the whole Disney franchise, also different stories from books, as well as some widely known folklore.

This collection of tales in Phantasia, of course, also includes the most prominent characters in each of the stories, such as the protagonists, antagonists, and important supporting characters. These characters are the ones known as the “Heroes” in Grimlight. The Heroes in Grimlight are similar to the Guardians in Disney Mirrorverse, which we’ve already made a tier list of Disney Mirrorverse Tier List.

Moreover, the Heroes can be used by playing with them through each of their stories. Additionally, they can be called upon by using the power of the “Dreamstone” to summon them so they can aid each other and you in your fight against the deadly and mysterious Dreamless.
