Tales of Yokai Tier List – Launch Rankings!

Tales of Yokai official artwork.

Spoiled for choice in Tales of Yokai? Well, you’ve come to the right place. In our Tales of Yokai tier list, we rank all of the characters into tiers, S being the best, and D the worst. We’ll keep it updated as often as new breathing powers drop, and alongside balance changes. So, bookmark this page and check back for reference.

Tales of Yokai is a mobile idle RPG. You collect yokai, create a party out of them, then send them out into battles. They will level up, find new loot, and increase in power all without your input. Much like in any idle game, you’re, effectively, the manager.

You can check out Tales of Yokai on Google Play. You can also check out our Tales of Yokai codes guide.

Tales of Yokai Tier List FAQ

Now that you’ve seen the tiers and characters, let’s tackle questions.

How do Our Tiers Work?

Our tiers run from best to worst and rank the general usefulness of the characters.

  • S Tier: The must-have characters. Prioritize picking these ones if you can.
  • A Tier: These are excellent performers and will make a great endgame team. They might not be as desirable as the S Tiers, but they’re definitely worth your time.
  • B Tier: Solid characters who can pull their weight. They won’t hold you back but it’s probably worth picking a better option. 
  • C Tier: Underachievers who won’t hold up terribly well, unless you have them for a specific use.
  • D Tier: Practically useless. Avoid like the plague.

How Did We Decide on the Rankings?

We try and draw from a number of sources when composing tier lists. We draw lists from our own gameplay, but the aim is to try and create lists that cater to as broad a range of playstyles as possible. For that reason, we also like to draw information from other players’ rankings within the game community. 

When Do We Update Our Tales of Yokai Tier List?

We try and update the list regularly to reflect each new character release and rebalances. For that reason, it’s best to check back from time to time if you want to know the latest ranking.
