Honkai Star Rail characters in the SS tier are phenomenal and possess an extraordinary kit. The characters that deserve to be in this tier are:

  • Pela
  • Tingyun
  • Hanya
  • Lynx

All units can easily shine on the battlefield with minimal investment and do not require Eidolons to perform well. They can single-handedly dominate the entire battle, and when placed in a team, they can easily clear the most challenging activities.


S tier

The characters in this tier are excellent but require some assistance while fighting. The four stars in the S tier are:

  • Asta
  • Guinaifen
  • Sampo
  • Luka

The above-mentioned characters require some Eidolons and decent investment to dominate the battlefield and clear end-game activities such as Simulated Universe and Memory of Chaos.


A tier

The four stars in this tier are decent but overshadowed as they are not in the meta anymore. The Honkai Star Rail characters in the A tier are:

  • Serval
  • Yukong
  • March 7th
  • Qingque
  • Herta
  • Hook

Characters like Serval, Qingque, Hook, and Herta require a tailored team, while March 7th and Yukong need significant investment and Eidolons to leave a strong impression on the battlefield.


B tier

Characters in this tier are good but not as valuable as the others in the SS to A tiers. The units in the B tier are:

  • Dan Heng
  • Sushang
  • Arlan
  • Natasha

These characters require an exceptional amount of investment and max Eidolons to make an impact on the battlefield. They must be placed with SS-tier characters to challenge and clear the end-game activities.
