Summoners War: Chronicles tier list - best monsters to use ranked


S-Tier Monsters

Before you check out the monsters below, it’s important to know that it’s difficult to select just one or two “best” units, since they can all have an equally great impact if properly upgraded and used against the right enemy. The S-tier in our Summoners War: Chronicles tier list is probably this packed exactly because it’s difficult to select a handful of units and call them the best.

We divided the monsters in the S tier into two categories. For those who want to choose some of the absolute “best” (Monsters that have slightly better stats when min-maxing and in certain dungeons), we placed those above the line, but essentially, they are all equally good. So don’t fret if you acquired one of the heroes below the line from the free 30 rerolls since, rest assured, they will do their job as intended.

  • Beast Monk (all)
  • Mermaid (all)
  • Valkyrja (Fire, Dark)
  • Vampire (Fire, Wind, Light, Dark)
  • Sylph (Fire, Light)
  • Archangel (Dark)
  • Occult Girl (all)
  • Undine (all)
  • Panda Warrior (Fire)
  • Ifrit (all)
  • Jack-o’-lantern (all)
  • Chimera (all)
  • Sky Dancer (all)
  • Pirate Captain (all)
  • Pioneer (all)
  • Hyeonu Kim (Fire)

  • Harpy (Water, Dark)
  • Epikion Priest (all)
  • Lichen (all)
  • Polar Queen (all)
  • Magic Knight (all)
  • Valkyrja (Water, Wind, Light)
  • Vampire (Water)
  • Desert Queen (all)
  • Monkey King (all)
  • Sylph (Water, Wind, Dark)
  • Archangel (Light, Wind, Water, Fire)
  • Panda Warrior (Water, Wind, Light, Dark)
  • joker
  • Raven (all)
  • Kobold Bomber (all)
  • Martial Cat (all)

Valkyrja is one of the absolute best units in the game for a number of reasons – not only does she have high base stats, but every element she comes in has a set of benefactor skills for any team or setup. The Fire Valkyrja is outstanding for PvP, so we placed her slightly above the rest.

Undine comes as a healer under every element, and she is probably one of the best (if not THE BEST) in the entire game. Her kit provides so many great features, from revival (as Dark and Water) to invincibility (as Light) and many more. We recommend you keep her especially if you plan on playing as Cleaf or Orbia.


A-Tier Monsters

  • Mystic Witch (Wind, Light, Dark)
  • High Elemental (all)
  • Hell Lady (all)
  • Griffin (all)
  • Oracle (all)
  • Amazon (Dark, Light, Wind, Water)
  • Inferno (all)
  • Cowgirl (Fire, Dark)
  • Imp Champion (all)
  • Harpu (all)
  • Harg (all)
  • Harp Magician (Light)
  • Beetle Knight (all)
  • Narin Ha (Water)
  • Mi Ryeong (Wind)
  • Front (Light)

Harpu stands out as a unit that can remove beneficial effects from enemies in the Wind element, or apply various negatives on them with the Deadly Wings. The last skill, the Sharp Feather, is quite good no matter the element, as it also applies more negative effects or deals damage.

Marial Cat is an amazing unit that can counterattack, apply CC, inflict negative effects and a bunch more others, which makes her a top tier unit for people who need a versatile monster with relatively short cooldowns, able to inflict good damage.


B-Tier Monsters

  • Fairy (Fire, Light, Dark)
  • Vivachel (all)
  • Frankenstein (Water, Light, Dark)
  • Imp (all)
  • Pixie (Water, Fire, Dark)
  • Hellhound (all)
  • Garuda (all)
  • Warbear (all)
  • Penguin Knight
  • Wanderer (all)
  • Mystic Witch (Fire, Water)
  • Inugami (all)
  • Battle Mammoth (all)
  • Amazon (Fire)
  • Werewolf (all)
  • Cowgirl (Water, Wind, Light)
  • Howl (all)

The Fire Amazon is a monster that has some amazing stats, but although they are amazing, its abilities are still lacking compared to the higher-tier monsters.

The Mystic Witches featured here are a 4-Star Fire/Water elemental monsters with a decent skill that can debuff enemies, reducing their defenses and leaving them unable to receive buffs.


C-Tier Monsters

  • Fairy (Water, Wind)
  • Living Armor (all)
  • Golem (all)
  • Grim Reaper (all)
  • Snake (all)
  • Frankenstein (Fire, Wind)
  • Salamander (all)
  • Harpy (Fire, Wind, Light)
  • Charger Shark (all)
  • Mummy (all)
  • Pixie (Wind, Light)
  • Elemental (all)
  • Yeti (all)
  • Gore (all)
  • Lizardman (all)

We would not recommend building a majority of these monsters as not only do they have low base stats but their abilities are quite lackluster and do not support the rest of their kit. One of the exceptions that players might wish to build is Hathor as she has a decent skill set. She is the only hero that can reduce the cooldown timers of skills of other monsters in the formation.


D-Tier Monsters

  • Forest Keeper (all)
  • Horned Frog (all)
  • Mushroom (all)
  • Mimick (all)
  • Slime (all)
  • Sandman (all)
  • Ghost (all)
  • Low Elemental (all)
  • Maned Boar (all)
  • Monster Flower (all)
  • Skull Soldier (all)
  • Mischievous Bat (all)
  • Battle Scorpion (all)
  • Surprise Box (all)
  • Avoid building any of these monsters as their base stats and abilities are quite bad compared to the rest of the monsters included in the Summoners War: Chronicles tier list. Your resources are extremely precious, especially during the early game. Make sure to make the right decisions while using these scarce resources and do not waste them on any of the monsters mentioned above unless absolutely needed.
