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.


Another dull week. As much as all the new leaders are new and different, they can’t overcome the heart-cross’s stranglehold on the meta. I’m really looking forward to playing with some of the new cards, the Wisdom Kings in particular. Acala being the most appealing for various reasons beyond pure strength (how I can I say no to a wood cutie with a light saber and three time extends?).

Card Notes
3125 - 奇跡の逆転ファイター・Kinnikuman
Change: Added to 2

This seems about right. I’ll say what I’ve been saying for the past few weeks, though: I really have no idea how to judge this new mechanic without playing it myself.

New Card Holding Tank

New cards will be held here temporarily in an attempt to isolate the aggregate list from knee-jerk ratings.
Card Notes
3068 - 灼天の勇将神, Krishna
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A)

They really went all-out with the Indian 2 uuevos. 2.25/45.56/2.25 is pretty damned nice and makes Uzume’s awoken look silly by comparison. For those on NA looking for a tanky leader that doesn’t use heart-crosses, this will probably be the best we get.

3071 - 財成の学問神, Ganesha
Ranked Sites: Game8 Co-op (S)

I usually don’t list co-op cards here, but I thought it was worth pointing out that Ganesha is pretty insane and will probably be as sought-after as Liu Bei if not more so. Sure, Monday dungeon is a thing, but that doesn’t apply to the average player as going for pure rank EXP is such an inefficient use of resources. What he can do for every player is reduce the time between rank-up stamina refreshes when farming low-end dungeons. Biweeklies, skill up carnivals and collab dungeons all come to mind, but even something like Mechdragons on 20x gets boosted to about 1,700 exp/stam; that’s better than Zaerog∞. It’s time to dust off your Nazca and Wangrens and the like.

Not much to say this week. Kinnikuman didn’t really shake things up as much as its multipliers might’ve suggested. For the most part, the top three tiers have solidified their placements with only three of top 13 being non-heart-cross leads. This isn’t a problem per say, but GungHo really does need to make an alternative playstyle that’s viable at the highest levels if only for variety’s sake. It does feel like new cards (read: GFEs) might get introduced with the next JP godfest, though, and it should be interesting to see if they adapt any of the technology Kinnikuman and Khepri have pioneered.

Card Notes
1955 - Awoken Lakshmi
Change: Removed from ❀

It seems like I’ve hard to mourn Lakshmi’s removal from the tier lists an inordinate amount of times. I guess it’s nice GungHo is always willing to throw her a buff now and them, but it’s still always a sad time to see her slowly fall off the lists. Considering the competition, I guess I can’t complain too much.

2904 - Awoken Da Qiao & Xiao Qiao
Change: Removed from ❀

RIP the last generation of non-tank leads. You were the victim of horrible timing and didn’t get nearly enough time to shine.

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

GameWith and AppMedia both downgraded him, placing him closer to Game8’s original rating (which didn’t budge from last week). With the collab now over, it’s time to see if this style of play worked out how GungHo intended and if it did, brace ourselves for the inevitable GFEs that will replicate these types of leader skills.
