Not sure who to form a deck out of? Our Clash Mini tier list is here to help you. In this guide, we rank all of the heroes from S tier to D tier, allowing you to waste no time in guessing which ones to use. What’s more, we’ll keep it updated alongside new character additions and balance patches. So, we recommend that you bookmark this page and check back often.
Clash Mini is an adorable new entry in the Clash of Clans universe by Supercell, which also includes card battler Clash Royale. Much like the latter, Clash Mini sees you collect, summon, and upgrade a veritable army of ‘Minis’ – cute, almost chibi-like versions of your favourite Clash characters and heroes. This includes the Barbarian King, Shield Maiden, Archer Queen, and more.
Clash Mini Tier List
Last updated on January 17.
Now, we’ll go through our actual tier list, including an explanation of the tiers and some FAQs.
Before we move onto the tier list though, we thought we’d quickly explain what our tiers mean:
- S Tier: These are the best characters currently available in the game, and you should definitely aim to add them to your deck. They should also be the first choice to level up.
- A Tier: These characters are perfect for filling gaps in a deck – particularly when you haven’t unlocked enough S tiers, or there aren’t enough S tiers to fill a deck in the first place. You should investigate these characters and see which one will counter your enemy’s weakness.
- B Tier: Characters in this tier can really help during the early phases of the game, when you haven’t unlocked many characters, but they fade later on. Definitely use them when you lack S and A characters, but swap them out as much as possible.
- C Tier: The only real difference between C and D tier is that C tier characters can occasionally have niche uses. They may be great at a particular game mode, or be exceptionally powerful early on. A late-game party shouldn’t have any though.
- D Tier: We don’t recommend using these characters under any circumstance, unless you absolutely have to because you have nothing else. They underperform at all stages of the game, and in all game modes.

Clash Mini Tier List FAQ
Now we’ll answer a bunch of questions you may have about Clash Mini or tier lists in general.
What Is A Tier List?
A tier list is a list of characters that you can unlock in a game – particularly a gacha game – ordered from best to worst. We rank from S tier to D tier, with S being best and D being worst.
The purpose of a tier list is to help you, the player, determine who the best characters to unlock are, so you can save time and money. Once you know who the best characters are, you can form a party out of them and ignore the others.
How Did We Pick Our Clash Mini Tier List?
We used a combination of the following factors when deciding on our Clash Mini tier list:
- Personal experience
- Community feedback
- General consensus from other tier lists
However, it’s worth noting that tier lists are subjective by nature. This is based on our experience with the game, but yours may vary. So, we recommend that you take this with a pinch of salt and play Clash Mini for yourself.
How Often Do We Update Our Clash Mini Tier List?
We update this tier list regularly to ensure that it always follows the latest meta. Typically, you can expect an update around the following happenings:
- A new character releases
- Balance changes
There may be a small delay between the above two events as we’ll return to the game to check out the new character for ourselves, or to see how the balance patches have affected things.
