Brawlhalla Tier List

In this article, we will be presenting to you our very own Brawlhalla Tier List. 

Last Updated: January 2022

If you love free-to-play fighting games, then you are in the right place (in this case, website) because, here, we will be talking about Brawlhalla. And then, we will be showing you our own take on a Brawlhalla Tier List that will help level up your gaming experience. 

In most of these game modes, the ultimate goal is to knock one’s opponent off the stage (re: the four dimensions of the screen). Even so, it’s an incredibly competitive game that features simple controls and one-button special moves, this game will surely give you some adrenaline rush! That said, this article is specifically made for those who are bursting with competitiveness. This is also made to help you guys find out the best characters in the games without needing to spend a million hours into losing them (or losing with them). 

Now, let’s jump straight to our Brawlhalla Tier List! 


Like most tier lists, this one will be listing Brawlhalla’s characters from strongest to weakest.  

Brawlhalla Tier List: S-Tier

Here we have added the characters that are absolute beasts in the game. You have a significant advantage just by picking these characters, and if you learn how to chain their attacks correctly, you are going to see the enemies dying faster than you ever thought is possible. You should spend time learning their attacks and mastering their toolkit, it will help you climb the ranks faster.

  • Jaeyun
  • Koji
  • Magyar
  • Mako
  • Onyx
  • Scarlet
  • Teros

After the crazy overpowered S-Tier, we get to the mildly overpowered A-Tier. This means that they are still characters that if you master their combos and strings you can destroy most opponents. They have very few openings, and the enemy needs to be very experienced to take advantage of them. Just be careful not to pick them against characters that counter them hard.

  • Ada
  • Azoth
  • Kor
  • Lin Fei
  • Lord Vraxx
  • Petra
  • Queen Nai
  • Sentinel
  • Thor
  • Vector
  • Wu Shang
  • Zariel

We can talk all day if some of these characters should be high or lower on this list. They don’t have a clear advantage like the legends in the A or S Tiers, but they don’t have a clear disadvantage either. It all depends on how much time you put into getting familiar with their combo. If you put in your time, they will reward you for sure. Otherwise, it’s better to just pick the “cheating” ones.

  • Barraza
  • Cassidy
  • Diana
  • Ember
  • Hattori
  • Kaya
  • Ragnir
  • Rayman
  • Sidra
  • Thatch
  • Ulgrim
  • Yumiko

Contrary to the balanced legends of B-Tier, here we are starting to suffer some negatives. It might be that the mix-ups they offer are very limited, or that the frame data they have are bad compared to the ones higher on this list. Of course, if you are a Diamond player, you are going to make these characters look overpowered but for the average player, they are not that great.

  • Brynn
  • Caspian
  • Cross
  • Fait
  • Mirage
  • Mordex
  • Nix
  • Orion
  • Val
  • Volkov
  • Xull 

These characters are not exactly for laughing. Maybe for crying. You are at a significant disadvantage when you are picking them, since they have weak attacks, and their combos can barely push the enemy off the platform. We would suggest you ignore these legends.

  • Artemis
  • Asuri
  • Bodvar
  • Dusk
  • Gnash
  • Isaiah
  • Jhala
  • Jiro
  • Lucien
  • Sir Roland

Brawlhalla Tier List: Strongest Character

If you want to bully your enemies without mercy, then the character you must choose is Jaeyun.

Jaeyun with the broadsword is not only strong because he is a broadsword legend (they are the best without a doubt) but also because his signature moves are extremely strong. And he has two that not only help him push his opponent all the way to Mars but can also be used to recover. 

Serving as the cherry on top, is Jaeyun’s collection of super cool skins that makes him even more badass. You can choose from the mysterious Death Jester, valiant Gilded Glory, honorable Hanbok, and, of course, that skin that will sweep you off your feet, Hwarang. With a score of six for strength, five for dexterity, five for defense, and six for speed, you can’t go wrong with Jaeyun. 

Consoles and Game Modes

Playable across multiple platforms like Microsoft Windows, macOS, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS, Brawlhalla is a game that will spark your competitive spirit without costing anything — not even a single penny. This 2D platformer fighting game is promised to be eternally free, with no pay-to-win advantages and no in-game purchases. 

Developed by Blue Mammoth Games and published by Ubisoft, Brawlhalla can include up to four players. They can explore and enjoy team games, custom games, as well as local play options. Currently, Brawlhalla offers five game modes: Arcade, Custom Online, Local Match, Online, and Training. 

I’m an uber competitive geek so, get me back to the tier list! 🔼


What is better than playing the game that you love for free? Probably winning at said game. If that is your definition of fun, we would suggest that you try and unlock the legends at the top of this Brawlhalla Tier List. Of course, you should also start practicing them because, as the overused quote says, practice makes perfect. It really does. You will soon dominate your opponents. 

If, however, you are looking for a challenge, any kind of legend should work. Especially if you want to put your skill to the test. You can also take things up a notch by getting on the Battle Pass Season 4  update. After all, Brawlhalla Season 4 – The Exalted Lion is bringing in new battle pass, skins, sidekicks, avatars, and a whole lot more. 

In sum, Brawlhalla is an amazingly fun game to play, even if you are losing (lies).
