Since the time of its release in 2014, Puzzle and Dragons has become one of the most popular free-to-play video games on the market. It may seem rather simple in the beginning, but as you reach the end of the game, Puzzle and Dragons throws a lot of curveballs at you and presents you with many challenges to overcome. This Puzzle and Dragons tier list will help you choose which characters to help you overcome those challenges.
In this puzzle video game, the object is to play the role of a dragon in order to solve a puzzle. First, you pick from about 2000 monsters and formulate a team. Your success or demise will depend on how you pick your characters and which characters you pick.
In an effort to help you be the best Puzzle and Dragons player you can be, we created a tier list by ranking the best characters based on their max CP per level. We have also added a couple of the best pairs you can have for the current meta which revolves around leader-pairs. We have grouped the best Puzzle and Dragons monsters into four tiers: SS, S, A+, and A. Read below to see which players can help your gameplay the most.
- Sun God
- Ra Dragon
- God of the Night
- Tsukuyomi Dragon
SS Tier characters are the best of the best. They can almost guarantee a win in matches, especially with the right monster cards. Ra Dragon is one of the five original Monster Point Dragons and remains one of the most powerful cards in the game – even throughout his evolution and the game’s many versions. Sun God, God of the Night, and Tsukuyomi Dragon are all similarly powerful and can help make the endgame of Puzzle and Dragons less of a challenge.
- Awoken Anubis
- Destroyer God, Shiva Dragon
- Awoken Archdemon Lucifer
- Awoken Pandora
S Tier characters are trustworthy and good puzzle solvers. The two strongest and most prominent members of the S Tier are Awoken Archdemon Lucifer and Awoken Anubis. Anubis–led teams can dominate large boards and make those puzzles a breeze to solve.
- Awoken Freyr
- Awoken Shiva
- Ushio & Tora
A+ Tier characters are generally good leaders but have a few weaknesses that hold them back from being in higher tiers. They still have great damage potential and are solid when they need to be. The most important character from this tier is Raoh, as she is a highly-valued devil monster that typically costs many units.
- Awoken Parvati
- Mistress of the Sanctuary, Kali
A Tier characters are not great performers and should be used only when higher-tiered characters aren’t available. Horus, Kanna, Awoken Parvati, and Kali are good heroes in other aspects of the game, but won’t perform to as high of a degree as the other tiered Puzzle and Dragons characters.
Best Pairs in the Game
- Yugi x Nelle
- Fasca x Yugi
- Dyer x Aten
- D Lilia x Fasca
These pairs are super useful when it comes to Puzzle and Dragons’ toughest challenges near the endgame.
Yugi and Nelle have high survivability potential and great damage power. They are also extremely hard to kill due to their high poison immunity.
Fasca and Yugi are arguably the most powerful pair in the game. Yugi has extremely high damage and healing multipliers, and when paired with Fasca’s vast utility options, the pair is guaranteed to take down pretty much any dungeon.
The best way to utilize Dyer and Aten is to optimize the skill list. Doing so can strongly minimize the threat of any gimmicks coming from an enemy. Dyer and Aten are also most beneficial when used with a rainbow setup.
D Lilia and Fasca are an insane offensive team. They make building auto-FUA attacks an absolute breeze and recover quickly. Their resistance against hazards make them a solid duo that is hard for any monster to take down. Their only issue is they are a little slower than other pairings – but hey – doesn’t slow and steady always win the race?
Puzzle and Dragons has gained and maintained an immense amount of popularity since its release. Today, it remains one of the most played games in Japan, its origin country. This Puzzle and Dragons tier list was created to help players gain the best chance at beating the challenges the game throws at you as you approach its endgame. The SS tiered characters are the most reliable and almost guarantee a chance at winning. S and A+ tiered characters are reliable and solid, the next best option if the best of the best is unavailable. A Tier players are not great performers and qualify as a last resort only. If playing the current leader-pair meta, our list of the most lethal pairs in the game should help with getting you a win most of the time.
