Soul Knight has evolved into one of the most sought bullet hell dungeon crawler action games on mobile and the Nintendo Switch. Inspired by the highly acclaimed Enter the Gungeon game, this highly addicting title offers an explosive edge-of-your-seat experience. Soul Knights’ massive collection of weapons, randomly generated worlds, memorable NPCs, brutal bosses, and swarming enemies enticed over 61 million players to download the game on the Android platform alone. Beyond the game’s brilliant features lies 22 Soul Knight Characters made up of 17 common and five legendary.

Heroes in Soul Knight are named after their specialty or job. Each hero comes with a starter weapon along with base stats and skills. In a perfect world, legendary heroes are the most powerful. However, this is Soul Knight and just like the game’s dungeons, the most powerful heroes are also random. With that said, if you’re a new player who’s having a hard time choosing the best hero in the game, then our tier list for the game’s latest version can help you decide.

Soul Knight Characters Tier List

Take note that the tier list will change if the developers decide to drop balance changes for heroes in future updates. Moreover, we’ll only describe the heroes from Tier S and A to avoid spoilers. With that out of the way, let’s dive right into our list.

Soul Knight


Tier S

Tier S heroes in Soul Knight are the best on the roster. Furthermore, the skills and attributes of these heroes make boss fights and dungeon crawling less difficult. There are only two heroes that fall under this tier and they are not legendary.


The Paladin is a premium hero that comes with a $1 price tag. One of the strongest attributes of this hero is his armor, which is the highest in the entire roster. In contrast with the armor is his health, which is the lowest. The Paladin comes with three skills. The first is called an Energy Shield which is a protective bubble that lasts for five seconds.

Holy Warrior is the second skill (which requires an in-game purchase to unlock) that transforms the hero into a giant for five seconds. Finally, the third skill is called Splash and Bash, which allows the Paladin to raise his shield to reduce the damage received.

The second in Tier S is Rogue, which is obtained by shelling out 2000 gems that happen to be the cheapest in the game. Despite having the lowest HP in the entire roster, Rogue’s melee damage is devastating enough to earn a place at the top of the list. Like the rest of the heroes in the game, Rogue comes with three skills.

The first skill called Dodge allows the hero to do a forward roll dodging enemy bullets in the process. The second is called Laido, which requires $1.99 to unlock. This premium skill allows the hero to dash towards the enemy while slashing them without taking any damage. The third skill is called Cartwheel, which allows the hero to roll towards the enemy and execute a slash attack at the end.

The Alchemist wears a brown robe equipped with a starting weapon called Dormant Bubble Machine. This hero costs 5000 gems and comes with above-average armor and HP. His first skill called Gas Grenade allows him to launch poison-filled bottles inflicting AOE damage.

On the other hand, his second skill, which costs $1.99 to unlock, is called Concoction. It buffs the hero’s stats when ingested. The third skill called Elemental Potions allows the hero to launch various potions with AOE damage. This skill will cost you 8000 gems to unlock.
