Skullgirls Tier List (September 2021)

Skullgirls Tier List

Our Skullgirls Tier List ranks every character variant in the game!

Last Updated: September 2021

Skullgirls Mobile is a fighting game that was released in May of 2017 for Android and iOS devices. It’s a spin-off of the original Skullgirls title, which was ported to PC, the Xbox 360, and various PlayStation consoles. Set in Canopy Kingdom, Skullgirls Mobile is essentially a prelude to Skullgirls 2nd Encore. Players who advance the story learn more about the mysterious Skull Hearts and how they came to affect the main characters. And by level 20, you can even dive into each of the character’s origin stories.

Gameplay-wise, Skullgirls Mobile has a unique roster, because while it only has 15 distinct characters, each one has a variety of abilities. These skill and stat variations come in the form of cards, which the player can collect throughout the campaign. For this Skullgirls Tier List, we’re categorizing each and every character variant, so you know whom to invest in.

Check out the rest of the article to see where your favorite character’s variants end up!

 

SKULLGIRLS TIER LIST

For this particular Skullgirls Tier List, we’re categorizing the 170+ character variants in the game in one of five tiers: S-, A-, B-, C-, and D-Tier. S-Tier variants are your best options. They’re good at both offense and defense. Plus, they can thrive in Skullgirl Mobile’s different game modes. On the other hand, D-Tier variants are the least useful of the roster, primarily because of their low stats. You can keep them around, in case you need their specific skills, but you shouldn’t invest in them too heavily.

Now that that’s out of the way, we can get into the list!

Conclusion

Skullgirls Mobile is a distinct game in the mobile gaming community. This is not only because of its novel gameplay mechanics but also for its innovative approach to the character roster. Additionally, the game’s cute, cartoony style may seem reminiscent of titles like Genshin Impact and Pokemon Masters EX. But it offers a very different experience, compared to these games. High-octane battles, tactical combo executions, and on-your-feet thinking are what you can expect from Skullgirls Mobile. Pair that with a plotline that delves into ancient parasites, questionable lab research, and wars between nations, and you’ve got an engaging mobile game that takes itself seriously.

So, if you’re looking to brush up on your fighting game skills, download Skullgirls Mobile from the official website to start collecting the variants you need.

Our Skullgirls Tier List should have told you everything you need to know about the best picks in the game. Alternatively, you can try the other Skullgirls games.

Lastly, the original Skullgirls is playable on the PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360. Meanwhile, its re-release, Skullgirls 2nd Encore, is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.
