Naraka: Bladepoint Tier List - Best Characters for 2023

Naraka Bladepoint Character Tier List
August 1, 2023 - We've updated our Naraka: Bladepoint tier list.

Naraka: Bladepoint can be a pretty intense game. With a huge community and a handful of central characters, it can be a bit hard to figure out the best choice for you. Our Naraka: Bladepoint tier list should help you out.

As you might expect, this is very subject to opinion. You're always better off figuring out your favourite character and fighting style, but this list will at least point in the general direction of which might just pull ahead of the rest. The very best Naraka: Bladepoint players are those who can figure out unique ways to play, after all.

If you're looking to play the game and want to give it a go while you're out of the house, here's what we know about Naraka: Bladepoint Mobile. If not, here's how to counter Viper Ning's Twilight Crimson ultimate in case you're struggling with that.

Naraka: Bladepoint Tier List - Who's the Strongest Character?

Matari, Yoto Hime
Tarka Ji, Viper Ning, Tianhai, Yueshan
Temulch, Wuchen
Kurumi, Valda Cui

Here's a quick breakdown of why each character ranks how they do right now:


Although certainly not bad, Kurumi rounds the bottom of our list. She is a great healer, but the community is a little more selfish in their playstyle, so you won't get the most out of her unless you're teaming up with friends. She's much better with a proper strategy.

Valda Cui

Like our last choice, Valda Cui is at her best in a well-trained squad. When caught out by herself, she can be taken down much quicker.


Temulch is a bit of a tank and can get caught out because of it. Using a whirlwind attack, you can put off enemies and catch them off guard. Unfortunately, he becomes a big target later on and is a little less agile.


Although, admittedly, quite a situational hero, Wuchen is perfect for a quick getaway. If you and your team are struggling to hold an area, his ultimate will teleport you away. It can't be used while being hit but, if your friends are taking the heat, it can be an excellent move.

Tarka Ji

Tarka Ji is a strong defensive hero, capable of withstanding tonnes of hits. He can be pretty great in certain situations but doesn't have the all-out offence of his opponents.

Viper Ning

Being the first hero you try out, Viper Ning is a great beginner's character. She has some good distraction moves and her ultimate can stun, even if it locks her in place for a few seconds.

Coming with one of the coolest ultimate abilities in the game, Tianhai is a powerhouse capable of transforming into a great beast. This makes him a target early on but good defensive abilities allow you to play a great distraction.


An incredibly versatile fighter, Yueshan uses his ultimate to cover himself in terracotta armour, allowing him to take more damage and hit even harder. Though not the quickest fighter, his abilities favour both an offensive and defensive player well.


Being one of the most agile characters in the entire game, Matari is an excellent choice if you're looking to dominate the opposition. She can get out of harm's way incredibly quick, for a quick refresh. She also has the capability of being your team's main DPS, a formidable combo. There's a reason she is so popular.

Yoto Hime

Much like the last character, Yoto Hime has great speed, nice escape abilities and a huge slash, earning her a high spot on the Naraka: Bladepoint tier list.

She can swing at groups of enemies with ease and do tonnes of damage at the same time. With Yoto Hime, you can win entire games almost single-handed. Throw her into a party with a good healer and she can be truly unstoppable.

And that's that! If you're learning how best to play Naraka: Bladepoint, you'll want to know how to heal, so check that guide out before walking into a losing battle.
