Melty Blood Type Lumina Tiers List, According To The Pros


As seen on the collection of Japanese pro player tier lists on @Furious_blog's Tweet, GO1, Kubo, Jin, Clearlamp, and the other top Japanese players showcased their tierlists. So far, Shiki Tohno, Noel, Arima Miyako, Kouma Kishima, and Akiha Tohno are in consistent good spots in the tier. Overall, the trend in between these characters are they tend to be speedy characters with effective attacks when they are in good range to use them.

As their best, Shiki Tohno is their best pick and it can be seen in his gameplan. Most of his high damaging combos are easy to do and have a fast, far-reaching 2C leg sweep that can be used to poke and even interrupt foes at big pressure gaps. Lastly, most of his special moves are too efficient in threatening foes for making careless decisions as they reach far and come out fast in mid-screen.

Overall, Shiki Tohno is the Melty Blood Type Lumina prime pick due to his well-rounded tools work too effective as of the release patch. However, the guest character Saber is placed last even though she has a similar well-rounded and effective toolset as Shiki Tohno. It's possible that the Japanese pro players are downplaying this character.
