The hotly-anticipated new gacha RPG, Memento Mori, is finally out. So, to help you get started, we’ve put together a Memento Mori tier list that highlights the best, and worst, characters you can collect. That way, you can put together a solid team with minimal effort.

Memento Mori is a gacha auto-RPG with a musical twist. You collect heroes, create a party out of them, and send them out into the world to fight. Given that battles play out automatically, your presence isn’t essential. In fact, while you’re not playing, your team will continue battling and progressing without you. Each character has their own backstory and personality too, so you can get to know them over the course of the adventure.

We’ve put together a Memento Mori reroll guide that will help you get the characters you want. You can learn more about Memento Mori on the official site. We also cover a bunch of similar games, and recommend checking out our Alice Fiction tier list, Among Gods tier list, and Infinite Magicraid tier list.

Memento Mori Tier List

Updated on January 5

Now, we’ll rank all of the characters from the heights of S tier to the depths of D tier.

Tiers Explained

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 party. They should also be the first choice to level up and gain access to equipment.
  • A Tier: These characters are perfect for filling gaps in a party – particularly when you haven’t unlocked enough S tiers, or there aren’t enough S tiers to fill a party in the first place. You should investigate these characters and see which one will counter your party’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.

Memento Mori Tier List FAQ

Now that you’re familiar with our two tier lists, here’s a bunch of questions you might have about Memento Mori or tier lists answered.

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.

Why Did We Break Our Tier List In Two?

Our Memento Mori endgame tier list actually only covers LR grade characters, as these are the most powerful in the game. Naturally, it may take you some time to unlock these characters, but when you do so, they are well above every other character in the game.

So we created our early game tier list to help power you through the story. We then recommend swapping in an LR as soon as you unlock one, filling out your endgame party as you go.

How Did We Pick Our Memento Mori Tier List?

We used a combination of the following factors when deciding on our Memento Mori 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 Memento Mori for yourself.

How Often Do We Update Our Memento Mori 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.
