You'll find the best characters in the S-tier, where most of the Mythical units reside. They're the hardest to get, but thanks to the Mythic pity system (400 summons), you'll get them eventually. Units from A-tier are somewhat easier to get, as there is a Legendary pity (50 summons). To speed up the process, redeem Anime Defenders codes for more Gems needed for summons.

Below, you'll find all the best units in Anime Defenders, tiered from worst to best.

Best Ranked units in Anime Defenders

  • Bear King - Very useful unit as he can also attack air. Add to that an AoE attack and bleed damage, and you've got yourself a keeper.
  • Carp - One of the best damage-dealing units in the game, thanks to his full AoE attack, multiple attacks, and excellent range.
  • Chance Taker – Meta DPS with a fantastic range and AoE attack.
  • Cursed Knight – DPS and support unit. His Titan's Swordfall ability completely wipes out enemies in a target area, making him one of the best units in the game.
  • Elf Wizardess – Fabulous long-range AoE damage.
  • Admiral of Ice – Slowing down enemies is key to victory, and this admiral does it superbly.
  • Donut Warrior – Excellent at slowing units. Very useful support as he has an AoE attack.
  • Pink Rockstar – Best Legendary unit because of its combination of farming and attack buffs.
  • The Gamer - An excellent unit that can be even better as a summoner unit after evolution.
  • The Rift Sorcerer - Fantastic secret unit with full AoE attack and OP damage output. On top of that, this sorcerer is a hybrid, meaning he'll cover ground and air for you.

Best early game units in Anime Defenders

There are a lot of units to unlock and trade in Anime Defenders, including secret units! While it takes a lot of grinding to get them, you must start from somewhere. Below, you'll find a team you can fairly easily get from summons:

  • Strongest Swordsman (damage) - 850 yen
  • Admiral of Ice (support) - 850 yen
  • Bloomer (support - farm) - 550 yen
  • Dragon Slayer (AoE damage + fire damage over time) - 850 yen
  • Vengeful Shinobi (damage) - 600 yen
  • Cursed Nail (damage) - 500 yen

I've used the Cursed Nail unit to start the match as it costs 500 yen (a cheap unit with a fast attack), but you can use any other cheap units. If the situation allows, don't place cheap units and skip waves until you have enough for Strongest Swordsman (or any stronger damage unit you have) equipped with some of the best traits in Anime Defenders.

Best late game characters in Anime Defenders

You need the best units you can get to complete the hardest challenges, infinite maps, and raids in Anime Defenders. You'll have to grind and possibly spend some Robux to get there, but in the end, it will be more than worth it. Here are some of the best meta characters in Anime Defenders you should look for.

  • Pink Rockstar (support - farm) - 800 yen
  • Admiral Of Ice (support) - 850 yen
  • Skull Warrior (DPS) - 1500 yen
  • Curse King (Cursed Prince evo) (DPS) - 1000 yen
  • Flame Dragon King (DPS) - 950 yen

Pink Rockstar is by far the best farm unit in Anime Defenders, as it also buffs your units. Skull Warrior is the most popular damage unit, as it has a full area of attack on placement. For damage over time, Curse Prince has bleed damage, while Flame Dragon King has the best burn damage. Admiral of Ice is the ultimate debuff support as it stuns enemies, giving you plenty of time to destroy them.

This Anime Defenders tier list article is a work in progress, as there are many units to unlock and test. We'll update it as soon as we have more characters.
