The half-decent characters for Vampire Survivor Tier list

B-tier characters have decent abilities but aren’t as good as A-tier characters. They may even have a few downsides, but by using them cleverly and knowing where they lack, you can gain the upper hand against huge waves. In the Vampire Survivors Tier list, they at least deserve a decent spot. 


  • Type: DLC character 
  • Starting Weapon: Mirage Robe
  • Cost: 5000

Her passive bonus starts her off with +10 Reroll. One of her downsides is that, due to Babi-Onna’s special firing patterns, most weapons can’t synergize with her. Babi-Onna is also able to evade weapon cooldowns, and her weapons fire at fixed intervals whilst moving.

Zi’Assunta Belpaese

  • Type: Standard character
  • Starting Weapon: Vento Sacro 
  • Cost: 5000

ZI’Assunta has great passive bonuses, as she gains +0.5% Might, Projectile Speed, Duration, and Area at each level. Her passive bonuses outclass many characters’ like Antonio, Dommario, and Porta. But her abysmal stats causes her to reside in the B-Tier. 

Arca Ladonna 

  • Type: Standard character
  • Starting Weapon: Fire Wand
  • Cost: 500

Araca starts off with 10% Might and gains -5% Cooldown every 10 levels until level 30. He can only gain a maximum of -15% this way. The explosion effect of the Fire Wand is extremely helpful at the beginning of a game, as it wipes out a massive number of enemies. 

Minnah Mannarah

  • Type: Secret Character 
  • Starting Weapon: Bloody Tear
  • Cost: 666

Minnah’s passive bonuses grant her Max Health and recovery buffs. She even gains +10% Might every three levels until level 24. One thing to keep in mind is that her stats change every minute.

Christine Davain

  • Type: Standard character
  • Starting Weapon: Pentagram
  • Cost: 500

Her passive bonuses aren’t special as she has only good MoveSpeed buffs. Since Christine starts off with a high Cooldown reduction bonus, strong but slow rate of fire weapons do great in her hands. 


  • Type: Standard character
  • Starting Weapon: Bone
  • Cost: 500

He also has good Amount buffs, maxing out at +3. Upon reaching level 80, his weapon evolves into Anima of Mortaccio. Mortaccio also gets more projectiles every 20 levels (maxes out at 3 projectiles). 


Abysmal characters

C-tier characters are subpar and pretty easy to obtain. They are simply outclassed by high-tier characters and should be replaced as soon as a better character is obtained. They fall just above the worst characters in the Vampire Survivors Tier List. 


  • Type: Standard character 
  • Starting Weapon: King Bible 
  • Cost: 500

Dommario has permanent buffs that can be achieved at the cost of his speed. The origin of this character refers to Don Mattero, who was a priest who solved crimes. His speed is the slowest in the game after gaining buffs. 

Antonio Belpaese

  • Type: Standard character
  • Starting Weapon: Whip
  • Cost: Free

Anotonio’s passive bonuses are decent and give him extra Might every 10 levels until level 50. He might not be very powerful, but learning to master him lands you ahead of the competition. 

Bianca Ramba

  • Type: Standard Character 
  • Starting Weapon: Carrello
  • Cost: 500

Bianca’s buffs aren’t notable and only grant her +1 Amount every 20 levels up to level 60. The character also gains up to 3 more projectiles if you max it. 

Yatta Cavallo

  • Type: Standard character 
  • Starting Weapon: Cherry bomb
  • Cost: 500

Like Bianca, Yatta’s buffs are nothing special and only grant him +1 Amount every 20 levels, until level 60. He also receives up to 3 projectiles if you max him.

  • Type: Standard character 
  • Starting Weapon: Laurel 
  • Cost: 2000

Divano has a variety of buffs like Recovery and Luck. His armor also increases as you reach higher levels. He also starts off with one extra level and gains more armor as you level him up. 

Pasqualina Belpaese

  • Type: Standard character
  • Starting Weapon: Runetracer
  • Cost: 100

For a C-tier character, Pasqualina has a niche buff that improves her Projectile Speed. The projectile speed gets 10 percent faster every 5 levels (maxes at 30 percent). 

Gennaro Belapaese

  • Type: Standard character 
  • Starting Weapon: Knife 
  • Cost: 500

Gennaro has poor buffs that only increase his Max Health and Amount. His projectiles for all weapons also increase permanently but only by 1 percent. 

Imelda Belpaese

  • Type: Standard character 
  • Starting Weapon: Magic Wand 
  • Cost: 10

Imelda’s passive bonus grants her extra Growth every 5 levels until level 15; the maximum Growth she can obtain this way is only 30%.


The worst tier of Vampire Survivors

D-tier characters are by far the worst characters in the Vampire Survivors Tier List and you must find replacements for them as soon as possible. Their passive bonuses are underwhelming and will only cause you difficulty while playing.


  • Type: Secret character 
  • Starting Weapon: Peachone 
  • Cost: 777

Toastie starts off with one of the poorest buffs like negative Health, Might, Area, and Duration. But these can be gained back at higher levels. In the beginning, any enemy that touches Toastie results in an instant death so it is advised to maneuver around enemies until more health is gained at higher levels.

Suor Clerici

  • Type: Standard character 
  • Starting Weapon: Santa Water
  • Cost: 500
  • How to Unlock: You can unlock her by recovering at least 1000 HP over the course of all runs, after which she can be purchased for 500 Gold coins. You can also unlock her by casting the Faschiuma spell. Suor has a lot of Area at the beginning, 

Skills and Description

Suor belongs to the standard character pack and her starting weapon is Santa Wate+400%, but this depreciates at every level until the bonus is entirely gone in level 5.  It also has a permanent +0.5 HP/s and a +50 Max health. Suor also starts off with a temporary area bonus. 

Poe Ratcho 

  • Type: Standard character 
  • Starting Weapon: Garlic 
  • Cost: 500

Poe starts off with negative Health and increased Magnet buffs. Although, he does get a 25 percent more Pickup. 

Iguana Gallo Valletto

  • Type: Standard character 
  • Starting Weapon: Clock Lancet 
  • Cost: 2000

Gallo has a variety of buffs that increase his Duration, reduce his Cooldown, and so on. He starts off with an extra level and gains 10 percent growth every 5 levels. This maxes out at 50 percent. 

Exdash Exiviiq

  • Type: Secret character 
  • Starting Weapon: Ebony Wings 
  • Cost: 777

Exdash’s passive bonuses are pathetic as he has negative Health, Movespeed, Might, Area and so much more. The only real bonus it gets is a 100 percent increase in its luck. 

Giovanna Grana

  • Type: Standard character 
  • Starting Weapon: Gatti Amari 
  • Cost: 1000

Grana gains ProjectileSpeed at every level, this buff has no cap. Garana’s weapon, Gatti Amari, may not be a viable starting weapon as it requires some build-up to be effective. Thus, you may opt for some other weapon to survive early in the game. 

Lama Ladonna

  • Type: Standard character 
  • Starting Weapon: Axe
  • Cost: 500

Lama’s starting weapon is an Axe. Lama has impressive bonuses for a D-tier character, these bonuses increase her Max Health, Might, MoveSpeed, and Curse every 10 levels. Her main weakness is her Axe. 


  • Type: Standard character 
  • Starting Weapon: Axe or the Death Spiral
  • Cost: 66,666

missingN▯’s passive bonuses are randomized and the final stats for these are determined by the base stats and the PowerUp stats. However, it becomes invincible if its Max Health becomes negative. But it also has major drawbacks, like if his MoveSpeed is 0, it will not be able to move.


  • Type: Secret Character 
  • Starting Weapon: Any base weapon
  • Cost: 5000

Random’s buffs are based on one of his eight names that are selected at random. His oscillating states make him very interesting to play with, however, it is usually weak. 


Our Vampire Survivors ranked all the characters in the game through very comprehensive criteria. It was based on their rarity, stats, and how hard it was to unlock them. Vampire Survivors gained popularity because of its perfect mix of idle and active gameplay, and with its cheap price, it is definitely a steal. We had fun drafting this tier list, and hope to see you next time!
