The current ABA tier list is based on the rankings of Anime Battle Arena YouTubers vert & YozoraDOL and the members of the community.

In general, the more expensive and harder characters are to obtain, the stronger they are. But there are exceptions, though, where cheaper characters will perform better than expensive ones.

You can see what the cost of each character is in our tier list and how to get them if they aren’t available for purchase.

All characters from Anime Battle Arena are ranked in the tier list from S+ to D based on how powerful they are in a 1v1 scenario, with S+ being the strongest and D being the weakest.

Characters within a tier are not ordered.


How to get gamepass and prestige characters

Most characters in Anime Battle Arena can be obtained by purchasing them with the in-game currency in the character menu.

There are, however, a few characters that cannot be bought with in-game currency – they can only be obtained by either having a gamepass or through the prestige system.

Characters that say Gamepass in their cost when you’re viewing them in the character selection menu can only be obtained by purchasing a gamepass.

There are several character gamepasses, each of which unlocks two gamepass characters in a specific category.

Characters that are under the Prestige category and have an incredibly high in-game currency cost can be obtained through the prestige system.

To unlock a prestige character, you need to reach level 100 at least, then visit Mr Random, who is located behind the Buy Gold NPC. Mr Random will exchange 99 levels in exchange for you to pick between one of two random prestige characters.

You can see what Mr Random looks like in the image above. Getting to level 100 isn’t a quick task, so you should expect to play for a while before you can obtain prestige characters.


That’s the tier list on the best characters to use in Anime Battle Arena (ABA), as well as how to get prestige and gamepass characters.
