April 18, 2022: Amaterasu has arrived and has been added to the Mythic Heroes tier list.

You can achieve mythic status with this Mythic Heroes tier list, and you'll do so without blowing valuable resources on lesser characters. This idle RPG has a lot in common with others out there, closely resembling the popular AFK Arena in how it plays, which can lead to some pretty easy progression before things take a tougher turn.


Learning from that, we know that by investing in characters that are less powerful on the battlefield than others, you'll always be chasing after the players who backed the right horse early on. The Mythic Heroes tier list below should—pulls permitting—allow you to avoid that fate either by investing in the right characters or rerolling until you get a good one.

Speaking of idle RPGs, there are plenty of them out there right now. If you're looking to build the best teams in other games, check out our AFK Arena tier list as well as our Valor Legends tier list. You can also look to our AFK Arena codes guide and Valor Legends codes list for some freebies. Even Mythic Heroes codes exist. You'll want those if you're to stay ahead of the competition.

Lilith doesn't rank too high on the Mythic Heroes tier list, but she has her uses.

Mythic Heroes Tier List

Tier Hero
SAmeterasu, Lucifer
AFlora, Thor, Tamamo No Mae, Ganjiang & Moye, Artemis, Susanoo, Persephone, Nuwa, Amaterasu
BIdun, Nagakayna, Athena, Zeus, Izanami, Medusa, Cleopatra, Iset, Western Queen
COberon, Dionysus, Hades, Anubis, Hercules, Lu Bu
DLilith, Joan of Arc, Gaia

The Mythic Heroes tier list above doesn't highlight every character in the game. Some just aren't worth even acknowledging in a serious team. Instead, it focuses on UR and SSR characters.


As some SSR characters can perform better than some URs without requiring nearly as much investment, you'll find that some more common units sit above those that are more difficult to obtain.

Another thing to note is that this Mythic Heroes tier list doesn't break down each hero's strengths and weaknesses. Their kit and movesets are generally best suited to specific types of content like PVP, boss battles, or specific sections of the main campaign.

Characters that rank high on the Mythic Heroes tier list generally perform well in each, but will still excel in specific areas of the game.

Those that rank further down may still perform admirably in their favoured area but simply struggle so much in others that they're not considered the best all-around investment. For that, we've broken the characters up further below.

CDionysus, Lu Bu, Iset

If you're hoping to be a Mythic Heroes PVP master, the Mythic Heroes tier list above should steer you in the right direction. Using some combination of the heroes above will create a team that's generally more capable on the field than any other. The end result will still depend on how you build and use them in battle, but these characters are primarily designed for PVP and will work well in the right hands.

Dionysus ranks high on the Mythic Heroes tier list for boss battles.

Prefer to test your strategy against PVE boss encounters rather than real people? These are the best Mythic Heroes for the job. There's a sharper shift in the meta here compared to the general and PVP-focused tier lists. Far more characters show their weaknesses in this area of the game. Just stick to those in the upper three tiers and you should be able to forge a reliable team for boss battles outside of the main campaign.

And that's it for now. Mythic Heroes has only just released, so you can expect the Mythic Heroes tier list to grow steadily as new heroes are introduced and others are balanced to keep the peace. By keeping this on hand as you redeem rewards from codes, you'll be able to ensure you're only using precious resources on the best characters for the job.


When Is the Next New Mythic Heroes Unit Releasing?

Amaterasu arrived in the second half of March, with another mysterious yet being teased just before their arrival. The big 1.7.0 patch recently released, changing a lot about how characters work. Expect the newest hero to arrive soon to ring it in.

Now that you've hopefully learned everything you could need to know about the Mythic Heroes tier list, why not look at a few other similar character ranking guides? Our Cookie Run: Kingdom tier list covers the many PVE sections of game. As does our Awaken: Chaos Era tier list as well. And for something even more anime, our Blue Archive tier list can help you there.
