How Many Characters Are There In Our FGO Five Star Tier List?

There are over 140 five-star characters currently in Fate/Grand Order, with plans to increase the roster considerably in future updates. We’ll update this guide with each character release and place them into our ranking system. 

S Tier List

The best characters in the game, and deemed the strongest when it comes to their abilities. We recommend trying to obtain an S-tier character as soon as possible.

A Tier List

Fantastic characters and great replacements if you don’t manage to get your hands on an S tier. They can be used alongside S-tier characters and can easily help you clear content.

B Tier List

Not the best in terms of strength but they’re good fillers at the start of the game. They can be used as a support choice to aid your A-tier and S-tier characters.

C Tier List

It’s best to avoid placing these characters in your party, especially if you want to clear content efficiently.

D Tier List

Not worth upgrading or using at all and should be avoided completely.
