Disclaimer: The aggregate list is basically a compilation of the leader tier lists from three JP PAD sites: Game8, GameWith and AppMedia. The idea is that while a single tier list can have many points of contention, hopefully an aggregate can kind of smooth things over (it doesn’t, really, but it helps a bit). I try to keep my hands off the results as much as possible; the extent of my involvement is setting the algorithm to aggregate the results. I wish I could be fully hands off, but as none of the lists have 1:1 correlation in their grades, I have to have that much involvement. Don’t take these ratings as fact; I encourage you to simply take them as a starting point for discussion to figure out which leads are actually the best for your specific situation.


Despite the Kinnikuman cards looking completely bonkers, it doesn’t look like the game is ruined. At least not more than it was already. Or maby the lists are just wrong. From what little I’ve seen, though, I don’t think they’re too far off.

Pad-Plus also decided to grace us with a popularity list this week, meaning they’ve only missed two of the last four. Hopefully them skipping weeks doesn’t become a trend; I mean, that page must be auto-generated so how hard can it be to pump it out every week?

Card Notes
2943 - Destroying Wing Dragon Emperor, Sherias Roots
Change: 2➞3

I was always a bit surprised at the love Sherias Roots got and after being able to play with him a bit, this downgrade doesn’t surprise me. Despite Ragnarok Dragon being an amazing sub, it just seems like you get so much more out of Kaede and Myr for less effort.

3090 - Chaotic Black Dragonbound Armor, Ana
Change: 2➞3

It does seem that Typhon Ana is weaker than Gremory and Batman, if only for the weaker active.

Card Notes
3125 - 奇跡の逆転ファイター・Kinnikuman
Ranked Sites: Game8 (AA), GameWith (SS), AppMedia (SSS), PadPlus (1)

He didn’t make either Game8’s or GameWith’s top tier. It looks like their main point of contention is the severe weakness to combo shields. This is a fair criticism, but at the very least I think Game8 is underrating him as his good points more than make up for it. Anyways, it’s really hard for me to judge this playstyle without playing it hands-on — I had a similar problem with the heart-cross — so I’ll leave it to the JP sites for now.

3129 - 悪魔超人最後の刺客・Akuma Shogun
Ranked Sites: GameWith (A), PadPlus (2)

Any weakness Kinnikuman might have, Akuma Shogun would appear to only amplify it. While I do think there’s some farming potential here, it feels like you might as well just use Liu Bei or Cao Cao instead.

I’m not sure what’s up with Pad-Plus lately. I usually tried to make these posts on Saturdays or Sundays to coincide with them releasing their popularity results, but if they continue to be late or just don’t make the post at all, I’m considering moving the posts to Mondays in order to capture the potential release of collab card rankings.

Anyways, GameWith made some sweeping changes to their list, the top three tiers all being heart-crossers. I’m personally fine with this mechanic taking over the meta since I enjoy both the playstyle and the power level it brings, but I sympathize with anyone that’s already tired of it. They also removed the co-op-centric leads which is a welcome change.

JP Aggregate Leader List Changes of Note

Card Notes
3090 - Chaotic Black Dragonbound Armor, Ana
Change: 3➞2

It should come as no surprise that anything with a heart-cross and a decent ATK multiplier is taking over the meta. Typhon Ana — arguably one of the “worst” of the good ones — settling in at tier-2 should tell volumes about how dominant this mechanic is.

2756 - Crimson Orchid Virtue, Xiang Mei
Change: 2➞3

I’d like my MP and Flampys back, please. I think tier-3 is reasonable for her, but there are a few cards that look out of place alongside her: You Yu, Lucifer and Dantalion, while good, probably shouldn’t be on the same level. Xiang Mei’s playstyle might be boring, but she’s still incredibly powerful.

2259 - Sun God, Ra Dragon
Change: 2➞3

It’s been almost a year since Ra Dragon has been released and he’s still on this list. A pretty amazing investment for those that got in early. It makes me wonder if GungHo will ever buff the MP Dragons (or at least discount their MP cost) or will they all just eventually fall off the face of the earth.

2984 - Awoken Izanagi
Change: ❀➞3

His buff from a 35% to 50% shield has been appropriately reflected in this update. Being a single tier below Myr is where he belongs.

2528 - Awoken Machine Zeus
Change: Removed from 3

GameWith removed co-op leads from their list — including Liu Bei and MHera — which is something I can only be thankful for.

2662 - Awoken Pandora
Change: Removed from ❀

RIP.

Card Notes
2827 - Armored Batman
Ranked Sites: Game8 (S), GameWith (SS), AppMedia (S+)

My main gripe about Batman is that his relatively low movement time will make the row + cross playstyle extremely difficult to execute for most players; I already have a hard enough time with it on Gremory and Batman teams will have at least one second less than her. However, taking skill out of the equation, he’s flat out stronger than Gremory or Typhon Ana.

Pad-Plus appears to be back. Still not sure why they skipped last week, but they did change their format very slightly so maybe it has to do with that. Game8 also changed their co-op list to include leaders that are co-op-focused. This was a much needed improvement as the list now isn’t just a rehash of the solo list with a few co-op leaders scattered in. It’s also good to see MAthena getting some love.

Card Notes
3112 - Sniper at Rest, Myr
Ranked Sites: Game8 (S), GameWith (SS), AppMedia (SS), PadPlus (1)

It should be noted that AppMedia is the only site that upgraded Myr after her upgrade to a 7.7x multiplier.

2827 - Armored Batman
Ranked Sites: Game8 (S)

Armored Batman is now a 64x leader with a 75% heart-cross shield. He has an advantage over Gremory and Typhon Ana in that he has no type restrictions, but this doesn’t actually mean too much in practice as all the good heartmaking subs are devil, dragon or balanced anyways. Not supplying any time extends himself makes him more difficult to use.

3115 - Goddess of Beach Volley, Lakshmi
Ranked Sites: AppMedia (S), PadPlus (12)

Seeing as AppMedia is the only site showing her some love, I don’t anticipate her making the list next week.

JP Aggregate Leader List Changes of Note

Card Notes
2997 - 宝冠の聖魔王・Paimon
Change: Added to 3

The addition of Dantalion, Paimon and Typhon Ana solidifies the grip GFEs have on the current tier list, making up 4/7 of the top two tiers and 8/17 of the top three (8/15 if you exclude co-op leads Liu Bei and MZeus). Here’s hoping that the glut of new GFEs stops for a while; hell, I think most players might find a new MP series a refreshing change of pace, as myopic as that sounds. I’m curious how GungHo will handle pantheon cards going forward.

2749 - Awoken Artemis
Change: Added to ❀

This is an interesting time for the Balboa-Artemis pair to resurface, especially since it appeared on GameWith and AppMedia in the same week. My first instinct was to see if there was anything interesting on YouTube, but either there wasn’t or it was buried under the countless Natti videos. So maybe the reason is as simple as the buffs they recently received; the 2x ATK bonus for matching both wood and water was boosted to 3x, giving the team a robust 2/36/2. It also makes sense that Artemis was the only one to show up since neither Ares or Hermes have a respective Balboa to pair with (I wouldn’t count Cao Cao and Sun Quan) and Apollo and Persephone’s 2.25/20.25/2.25 isn’t nearly as impressive.

Ranked Sites: Game8 (S), Game8 Co-op (S), GameWith (SS), AppMedia (S+)

I don’t think anyone will argue this.

3115 - Goddess of Beach Volley, Lakshmi
Ranked Sites: AppMedia (S)

Considering Awoken Lakshmi got minimal love on these lists, it should be no surprise that this form didn’t either. The addition of the heart-cross doesn’t justify the drop in damage output. I wouldn’t expect a top-tier lead to come out of a seasonal REM anyways (Miru being the exception).

We’re missing the Summer REM cards, but Myr was likely the only card to make the lists, anyways. Lakshmi is interesting, but considering where Izanagi landed this week I’m not sure she’s good enough to make it.

JP Aggregate Leader List Changes of Note

Card Notes
2505 - Awoken Astaroth
Change: 3➞❀

With so many new powerful leads being released, it should come as no surprise that the pre-cross old guard are slowly falling off the lists. It’s unfortunate that the days of pantheon gods being at the top of the lists has long since passed.

2901 - Awoken Cao Cao
Change: Added to ❀

Just when you thought he was dead, AppMedia adds him to their S-tier, good enough for him to show up on the aggregate list. As a side note, the revelation of Summer Goemon having two skill boosts should provide a small increase in his farming capabilities.

2253 - Destroyer God, Shiva Dragon
Change: Removed from ❀

I almost never use Shiva Dragon anymore, but he’s still one of my most used leads of all time and probably the best MP purchase I ever made. He’d need huge buffs to regain relevancy in the age of co-op. Which begs the question: does GungHo have any plans to ever buff the MP Dragons?

New Card Holding Tank

I’ve already gone over many of these leads in my last Quick Thoughts post. Much of what was said there is still relevant.

New cards will be held here temporarily in an attempt to isolate the aggregate list from knee-jerk ratings.
Card Notes
2991 - 狂面の魔公爵・Dantalion
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A), Game8 Co-op (A), GameWith (A), AppMedia (S), PadPlus (5)

From a high level, Dantalion is much like Kenshin; the main difference being that his active skill makes him system-ready, making him more consistent to play should you have that team. As far as glass cannons go, I prefer You Yu, but I’m not totally opposed to Dantalion’s current placement, but I do think he’ll fall off relatively soon. One thing of note is that at level 1, he has the highest RCV in the game (1285).

2997 - 宝冠の聖魔王・Paimon
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A), GameWith (A), AppMedia (S+), PadPlus (4)

Paimon looks amazing on paper, but I haven’t been all that impressed with the few videos that have come out so far. Then again, I haven’t seen anyone release a full 6x Paimon video or even a 4x one, either. I do think he/she’s better than Dantalion, though (IRL lore aside, it does look like a dude upon further inspection).

2984 - Awoken Izanagi
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A), AppMedia (S-)

Izanagi is the cross leader to come from a standard pantheon. As expected, he’s basically a bad Myr. The RCV is intriguing, but for the most part Myr is stronger due to the increased movement time and bind immunity.

Card Notes
3090 - Chaotic Black Dragonbound Armor, Ana
Ranked Sites: Game8 (S), Game8 Co-op (S)

Her buff to include balanced types on top of dragons makes her quite powerful, allowing her to utilize Xin Hua on top of powerful dragons like Yomi Dragon. YamaP hinting that more dark balanced types will be released is also promising. Even if there weren’t, the pending Akechi sub uuevo will still be amazing even if he doesn’t qualify for the full bonus. She doesn’t have the burst potential of Gremory, but those that already have Typhon will feel less pressure to roll yet another 6-star to get in on the heart-cross action in dark.

2997 - 宝冠の聖魔王・Paimon
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A)

This shouldn’t be a surprise. Even if matching multiple crosses isn’t the easiest thing to do, her top-end potential can’t be denied. For Game8, I think this is a pretty fair placement for a brand new card and I’m curious where the other lists will put her. Unfortunately I haven’t had the time to research her, but I’ll try to do that in the coming week.

Disclaimer: The aggregate list is basically a compilation of the leader tier lists from three JP PAD sites: Game8, GameWith and AppMedia. The idea is that while a single tier list can have many points of contention, hopefully an aggregate can kind of smooth things over (it doesn’t, really, but it helps a bit). I try to keep my hands off the results as much as possible; the extent of my involvement is setting the algorithm to aggregate the results. I wish I could be fully hands off, but as none of the lists have 1:1 correlation in their grades, I have to have that much involvement. Don’t take these ratings as fact; I encourage you to simply take them as a starting point for discussion to figure out which leads are actually the best for your specific situation.


Not much to say this week.

New Card Holding Tank

New cards will be held here temporarily in an attempt to isolate the aggregate list from knee-jerk ratings.
