One Punch Man – The Strongest Tier List – Overview of the Best Characters in the Game (Updated October 2022)
If you really want to be the strongest in the aptly-named One Punch Man – The Strongest, then you’ll need to recruit the best characters in the game to your team. However, a big part of actually unlocking the best characters is, well, knowing who they are. And considering that there are over 120 heroes and villains to find in this game, knowing which ones to look for can be a bit challenging, especially if you’re a newcomer.
This variety doesn’t help the fact that actually recruiting the best One Punch Man – The Strongest characters is one of the hardest things to do in the game, since you’re completely reliant on the gacha system. In this sense, the odds of actually receiving SSR or SSR+ characters, which are some of the best in the game, are astronomically low on every pull. As such, it could be weeks, or even months, before you get even one of these heroes.
Nevertheless, this doesn’t deter the most committed players from rerolling in One Punch Man – The Strongest, in order to unlock the best characters from the very beginning, especially since obtaining even one of these heroes can help you to breeze through the story with ease. We’ve already created a guide where we explained how to reroll in this game; feel free to check it out to learn more about this topic. On this occasion, however, we wanted to share our tier list for One Punch Man – The Strongest, so that you know exactly which heroes to look for when rerolling in this game.
You really can’t get much better than these characters. These are the absolute best characters in their respective fields, though they’re also the hardest to obtain. Having at least one of these on your side can take you a long way.
- Child Emperor (SSR, Hi-Tech, Hero)
- Carnage Kabuto (SSR+, Grappler, Monster)
This tier is where some of the best characters in the game can be found. These heroes are the ones who can carry entire teams on their backs, and are usually among the most desired units to look for when rerolling. However, when it comes to sheer power and utility, they’re usually outclassed by the SS tier. Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean they’re bad, but they’re just not as good as a few others. Regardless, you really can’t go wrong with any of these, as they’re usually more than enough to take you all the way to the endgame, and even beyond.
- Atomic Samurai (SSR+, Duelist, Hero)
- Terrible Tornado (SSR, Esper, Hero)
- Tank Top Master (SSR, Grappler, Hero)
- Deep Sea King (SSR, Grappler, Monster)
- Groribas (SSR, Esper, Monster)
Characters that can be just as powerful as the ones in the tier above, but require more setup and preparation in order to do so. While these heroes can’t carry as hard by themselves, they are far from being the worst. In fact, you can get through the entire game with just one or two of these in your squad; just don’t expect to be able to defeat teams with S or SS Tier characters very easily.
- Golden Ball (SR, Duelist, Hero)
- Superalloy Blackluster (SSR, Grappler, Hero)
- Vaccine Man (SSR, Esper, Monster)
- Amai Mask (SSR, Grappler, Hero)
- Subterranean King (SSR, Duelist, Monster)
- Mosquito Girl (SSR, Esper, Monster)
- Doctor Genus (SR, Hi-Tech, Outlaw)
The average characters that are neither good nor bad fall into this category. These are the ones that you’ll keep around for the longest, since they also may be some of the most common heroes in the game. However, you should aim to replace them ASAP.
- Mumen Rider (R, Grappler, Hero)
- Sky King (SR, Esper, Monster)
- Puri Puri Prisoner (SSR, Grappler, Hero)
- Geryuganshoop (SSR, Esper, Monster)
This tier only serves to illustrate the characters that you should avoid at all costs. Either because their skills and stats don’t conform to the meta, or because they’re just plain bad, steer clear of these characters.
- Tank Top Tiger (R, Grappler, Hero)
- Bun Bun Man (R, Grappler, Hero)
- Jet Niceguy (R, Hi-Tech, Hero)
- Sourface (R, Grappler, Martial Artist)
- Any “N” Rarity Hero
Just like in most gacha games, there are far more bad characters than there are good heroes in One Punch Man – The Strongest. Luckily, this makes it far easier to know which ones to avoid over which heroes to keep and upgrade. The last tier serves only to illustrate this concept, as you should never consider keeping any of these units on your team, save for when you’re starting out and have no one better to replace them.
Keep in mind that we’ve only considered the characters that we think are the best or worst on this list. Regardless, it’s important to know what makes a character good, and a character bad, in order to understand why we made our choices. In this sense, if you want a better explanation, then feel free to read our alternate in-depth tier list for One Punch Man – The Strongest, where we go into more detail on our picks.

However, by learning what to look for in top tier characters, and which units to avoid, you can get a good grasp on how to create your own powerful team compositions, and possibly even create new metas for the game in the process.
