Project Mugetsu Shikai Tier List [Sep. 2023]

Use this list and become the best Shikai in the world of Soul Reapers and Hollows!

Project Mugetsu currently features 5 Shikais that you can choose from. Each character presents a unique gameplay based on their specialties, stats, attributes, and more. Therefore, It is no surprise that the game can be challenging for newcomers. For that reason, to tackle the issue of knowing about each character’s weaknesses and strengths, I have written this guide on Project Mugetsu Shikai Tier List.

Key Takeaways
  • Project Mugetsu currently features 5 Shikais.
  • The Shikai ranked are based on their win rate across various game modes, damage, attack range, and special abilities.
  • This Project Mugetsu Shikai Tier list is based on version 1.0.
  • Ryujin Jaka is hands down the best and most picked Shikai in Project Mugetsu due to his DoT abilities.
  • The effectiveness of a Shikai is also heavily dependent on the player’s strategy and playstyle.
  • Zangetsu is considered to be the worst Shikai as he struggles against long-ranged characters due to a lack of ranged skills.

Ranking S-Tier Shikais In Project Mugetsu

Shikais mentioned in S-Tier is currently the best in Project Mugetsu. They have the highest picking rate in the game. If you want to win matches consecutively, consider picking and mastering characters in this list.

Ryujin Jakka

Ryujin Jakka is a fire Shikai. The reason he is on the S-Tier list is that all his skills inflict a ton of fire damage over time. Combine that with three combo extenders, a grab that deals massive damage, and a ranged skill with as low as 10 seconds cooldown, and you got yourself a beast of a Shikai. He is currently the most picked Shikai in Project Mugetsu. With that said, he is harder to obtain compared to other Shikais.

Ryujin Jakka33Fire DoT


  • It takes little to no time to get used to Ryujin Jakka’s abilities making him an excellent pick for beginners.
  • His Ennetsu Jigoku, Hitotsume Nadegiri, and Ryujin Jakka have guard-breaking capabilities.
  • Has broken burn damage that chips away the opponent’s health relatively fast.
  • Has three combo extenders allowing him to perform long combos dealing significant damage.
  • Excellent Crow control and high damage output capabilities allow him to obliterate the opponents.


  • Ryujin Jakka’s 2nd skill (grab) has a bug where it would sometimes just make the opponent fall on the ground and not do any damage.


Senbonzakura has two ranged skills with very short cooldowns and auto-tracking. Needless to say, they deal a ton of damage as well. However, the reason I have decided to put him in S-Tier is due to his ultimate. His ultimate can easily turn the tide of a match as it has massive range and can stun multiple enemies for several seconds.

  • Using Senbonzakura’s first (Senbonzakura Z) and second skills (Vibrant Bloom X), you can combo extend.
  • Cannot be stopped once he hits you with his ultimate as it can hit and stun multiple enemies at once with a huge radius.
  • Can spam Z and X, his long-range projectiles with auto tracking and very short cooldowns.
  • His Blossoming Petals and Scattering Spiral can break the opponent’s guard and even stun them.
  • His M1 is also a combo extender making it easier to perform combos.
  • He is very easy to acquire compared to other Shikais as he can be obtained for free.


  • His third skill(C) does not add any real value to his move set and is almost useless.
  •  Even though his last skill (V) has excellent features, it has a cooldown of 120 seconds.


A-Tier Shikais In Project Mugetsu
Ranking A-Tier Shikais In Project Mugetsu

The A Tier Project Mugetsu Shikai Tier list contains Shikais that are extremely powerful but require experience and strategy in order to net wins. When playing with these Shikais, I found that by adjusting my play style to adapt to their features and strong suits, these Shikais can be just as powerful as the ones mentioned above if not more.


Kamishini is a character that keeps the player in check with his set of range skills. Most of his damage comes from his combo extenders and his ultimate ability. All of his skills have more range and damage ability than Zangetsu.

The reason I have decided to put Kamishini in A-Tier is due to his combination of both long and close-range abilities, a number of guard-breaking skills, his ability to deflect projectiles, and his access to combo extenders. Utilizing this set of abilities, I was able to quickly adjust my playstyle accordingly and counter the enemy’s attack with ease.

Kamishini32Close Combat and Ranged


  • All the moves except for 3rd (C) can combo extend allowing you to deal higher damage combos.
  • His ultimate deals a ton of damage, and on top of that, it inflicts poison damage over time, making him a perfect fit for comeback wins.
  • Most of his skills have very short cooldowns making them easier to spam.
  • Kamishini’s first and fourth moves can guard break and they both have a massive range.


  • Kamishini’s second move is not hyper-armor which makes it easier for opponents to interrupt it.
  • Although his skill set is very well-rounded with ranged and close combat moves, it can prove difficult for beginners to get used to.


Hyorinmaru in Project Mugetsu, is an Ice Shikai. Even though he lacks guard-breaking moves, the reason he exists in the A-Tier list is due to his combination of freezing features, evasive moves that can be utilized as combo extenders, and ice traps that can catch you off guard and even freeze you. His set of offensive abilities makes him a perfect fit for dealing a ton of damage and defeating your opponents before they get a chance to attack you.

  • Hyorinmaru is the only Shikai that can combo extend you off of an evasive.
  • He can freeze you completely making it easier for him to use his skills or even combos.
  • He can also spawn traps that deal ice damage and freeze you should you step on them.
  • You can combo extend off of traps as well.
  • Since Hyorinmaru is an uncommon Shikai, he can be acquired easily.


  • Most of Hyorinmaru’s moves lack guard-breaking capabilities allowing the opponents to block his skills.
  • Some clans allow you to have immunity against freezing, making Hyorinmaru’s freezing capabilities useless.


B-Tier Shikais Ranking In Project Mugetsu
Ranking B-Tier Shikais In Project Mugetsu

Currently, the B-Tier list only contains Zangetsu because I believe he is the weakest character in Project Mugetsu right now. In the current state of the game, I recommend that you should not invest too much time playing with him. However, he can still be used in the early game when you do not have access to other better Shikais.


Zangest is an up-in-your-face type of Shikai. Even though he has three combo extenders, the reason he is in the B-Tier list due to his lack of hyper-armor and range skills. However, he has excellent guard-breaking features. Therefore, feel free to occasionally enjoy Zangetsu if you wish.

Zangetsu33Energy Waves


  • His move set contains both defensive and offensive capabilities.
  • Due to his three moves (Z, X, V) having combo extenders, he has a lot of combo potential.
  • Zangetsu’s Z, X, and V skills can also break the opponent’s guard.


  • Zangetsu really lacks decent long-range skills which makes it a lot harder for him to face opponents such as Kamishini and Senbonzakura.
  • He does not have any special traits compared to other Shikais on the list.
  • His fourth skill has a really long cooldown of 40 seconds.
  • Most of his skills are not hyper-armor, therefore, they can be interrupted while casting.

Tier List Criteria

After playing Project Mugetsu since its launch, and having hands-on experience with all 5 Shikais in the game, I decided to write this Project Mugetsu Shikai Tier list based on the Shikai’s difficulty, specialties, skills, and how it can impact the overall gameplay.

In addition to that, I made sure to test out all the Shikai’s move set against various opponents with different sets of abilities and playstyles. It is understandable that tier lists are subjective and that my tier list rankings may differ from what you had in mind, that is why the tier list is not up for further discussion.

This concludes the Project Mugetsu Shikai Tier List where I have successfully ranked all the 5 Shikais currently released in the game. Have you unlocked and played with all 5 Shikais?
