Due to their superior fighting prowess, Honkai Star Rail's top units have complete influence over the current metagame. They excel in a variety of team configurations because of their exceptional fighting effectiveness.


Here is a list of all 5-star characters that deserved the SS+- tier:

  • Jingliu
  • Fu Xuan
  • Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae
  • Kafka
  • Luocha
  • Silverwolf

Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae is in another league, even among SS+tier characters, because he deals the most damage. Due to his Destruction Path, he can launch both single-target and AoE assaults during combat.

The strength levels of S-tier and SS-tier characters differ slightly when it comes to 5-star characters. The following S-tier units, with a little more investment in Relics and Light Cones, are equally capable of clearing end-game tasks.

Here is a list of all 5-star characters that are in S- tier:

  • Blade
  • Seele
  • Gepard
  • Bailu
  • Bronya
  • Topaz

With the correct team configuration, Blade and Seele are ideal replacements for Lunae because they can unleash significant damage output.

Additionally, Gepard is unquestionably one of the greatest tanks in the game and can shield the entire team.

Honkai Star Rail's A-tier Characters will typically be overwhelmed by those at the top of the leaderboard. However, this does not necessarily make them unusable. To increase their value in battle, you simply need to devote more resources to their equipment.

Here is a list of all 5-star characters that are in A- tier:

  • Clara
  • Jing Yuan
  • Welt
  • Himeko
  • Yanqing
  • Trailblazer

Oddly enough, Clara has enough damage to qualify as a potent DPS unit. She is capable of being a 5-star character, but her hybrid movement and counterattack mechanics prevent her from reaching that level.
