All Star Tower Defense, ASTD for short, features a ton of unique characters for you to use in battle.
What characters you equip and use in battle has a major impact on your chances of winning or reaching greater heights in the infinite mode.
It can be difficult to know what characters you should roll for and bring onto your roster because there are so many.
That’s why we’ve created this All Star Tower Defense tier list to give you an overview of what the best characters in the game are.
To get the best characters in the game, you’re going to need to summon a bunch of times, so be sure to check out our All Star Tower Defense Codes List for all active codes!

All Star Tower Defense tier list
After playing ASTD for a while, you’ll get an idea of just how many unique characters there are to collect.
Characters come in different rarities, with the higher-stared ones usually being stronger than the lower-stared ones.
There are, however, still characters that are more powerful than characters with more stars, as you’ll see in the tier list below.
As higher-stared characters usually are stronger, it also means you have to do more summons to get the best characters in the game, as they have a smaller summon probability.
Summons cost either Gems or Gold, depending on the type of summon.
At the start of the game, you can only add three different characters to your roster, but at level 15, 30, and 50, you unlock the fourth, fifth, and sixth character slot, bringing your total roster to six characters.
Because you can only bring a limited number of characters, it’s important you optimize your roster and bring powerful and useful characters to ensure you can keep your ground.
The following tier list ranks all 6-star characters, all 5-star characters, and some 4-star characters based on how powerful or useful they are in All Star Tower Defense.
Most 4-star characters and all 3-star characters are not listed, as they are not useful or strong enough later on in the game.
They should just be used while you are progressing through the game.
Furthermore, this tier list focuses on PvE – Story Mode, Trial Mode, and Infinite Mode.
All the listed characters are given a rank from S to D, with S being the highest and D being the lowest rank.
Some characters have a + next to their rank, which means that they are even more powerful or useful than their assigned rank.
This tier list will be updated as new characters or updates are released and when the meta changes.

Best characters in All Star Tower Defense
There are a lot of characters to use on your team in All Star Tower Defense, and a lot of them are very strong.
But even though you might feel like you have built a great team, chances are you find yourself struggling to beat a specific level in the story mode or reach a specific wave in the infinite mode.
To help you progress, here are some of the best characters for you to use in ASTD that can help you progress further.
The following heroes are just some of the best in the game, and you’ll get an explanation as to why these are so powerful.
To see all the best characters in the game, check out the full tier list above.
If a character isn’t listed in the following section of this guide, it doesn’t mean that it cannot be one of the best in the game.
We’ve just picked some of the best with a special utility, power, etc., that we believe you should know about.
Bellma (Money Corp)
UPDATE: Several units that fulfill the same purpose as Bellma (Money Corp) have been released since this was written. The best money-generating unit at the moment is Jeff (CEO).
Bellma (Money Corp), a character in All Star Tower Defense based on Bulma from the Dragon Ball universe, is a character that most top players always have on their team.
She is a support character, which means that she doesn’t deal any damage.
Nevertheless, Bellma (Money Corp) is among the best characters in the game because of her ability that is generating money.
After every single wave, she generates an amount of money depending on her level and in-game upgrade level.
When you acquire some of the higher-stared characters in the game, having Bellma (Money Corp) becomes almost a necessity in some situations, as the cost of building and upgrading characters becomes so large.
With the release of Salesman, you want to build him instead if you have him, as he provides a bit more money per round at a higher build cost, though.
If you don’t have Salesman, you should use Bellma, as she is still among the most useful characters in the game.
UPDATE: A stronger version of Zorro has been released – Zorro (Serious), which is now one of the strongest units in the game.
Zorro is an Air, also known as Hill, unit in All Star Tower Defense who is based on Dracule Mihawk from the One Piece universe.
Characters of the air type can only be placed on hills on the map.
The reason why Zorro is among one of the best characters in ASTD is his incredible range paired with his massive AoE damage.
When fully upgraded, Zorro can dish out a ton of damage to many enemies at once, even at great distances.
Because his attack range is so great, he performs the best on maps where he can take advantage of this.
Furthermore, because he is so powerful, he is also very expensive to build and upgrade.
These two factors, his massive range, and high cost because of damage, makes him best suited for the Infinite Mode, where you can farm a lot of money because the waves keep on coming and the maps are very large.
Bringing Bellma (Money Corp) on your team is a great idea if you are using Zorro, as you, as mentioned, need a lot of money to fully upgrade him.
UPDATE: Kura is still a strong unit, but his upgraded version Kura (Darkness) is stronger.
Kura is a very special character in All Star Tower Defense who is based on Light Yagami from Death Note.
What makes Kura special and as powerful as he is, is his manual ability, Write Names, which deals massive damage to all enemies within a large range of his position.
You can use this ability once every 8 minutes by clicking him and clicking the ‘Write Names’ button.
Even though the cooldown of this ability is so large, it is still so powerful that it can clear an entire wave you couldn’t deal with, making Kura one of the best characters in the game.
Kura is even more expensive to build than Zorro, making him suitable for the Infinite Mode mostly, and it’s recommended to have Bellma (Money Corp) as well.
Onwin is another support character in All Star Tower Defense that is extremely useful because of his ability.
The character is based on Erwin from the Attack on Titan series.
What makes Onwin as good in the game as he is, is his ability, Shinzou o sasageyo, which significantly boosts the damage of towers within his range.
At the maximum level and maximum upgrade-level, his buff will increase the damage of towers by 89.5%.
Onwin is not expensive to build compared to other towers, making him a solid pick for all game modes in All Star Tower Defense.
Black Stache (Timeskip)
Black Stache (Timeskip) is the evolved and stronger version of Blackstache in All Star Tower Defense.
He is based on the character Blackbeard from the One Piece universe.
The timeskip version of Black Stache is a 6-star character who deals a bunch of AoE damage.
On top of his incredible damage, Black Stache (Timeskip) also has a slow through his Liberation ability.
Despite being one of the best characters in the game and having amazing damage, he is not that expensive of a character to build and upgrade, making him great for the different game modes.
That’s the tier list on the best characters in All Star Tower Defense in Roblox!
