The Best Characters to Reroll For in Saint Seiya: Legend of Justice
When it comes to rerolling in gacha games like Saint Seiya: Legend of Justice, we’ll obviously want to aim for the best characters available. However, while this makes perfect sense in practice, it’s important to know what makes a character good; or at least, what makes a character better than others.
In our Saint Seiya: Legend of Justice tier list, we already shared some of the best characters available in this game, which you can aim for if you’re actively rerolling. However, on this occasion, we wanted to go a bit deeper and give an actual overview of each and every character that we listed there, and give our personal thoughts and opinions about what makes them good (and bad).
If you’re merely looking for a tier list of the best characters in Saint Seiya: Legend of Justice, we suggest you take a look at the respective article. However, if you want to know what makes these characters stand out, and perhaps even define your own tier lists in the future, then this article is for you.
S Tier Characters
As we mentioned in our tier list article, the S Tier corresponds to the most self-sufficient characters; those who have the means and the stats to carry their teams, without the need for outside help or synergies. These are, by all means, the best characters in the game.
There’s a good reason why Shaka tops up every tier list on the internet, including ours. This character combines powerful debuffs, shields, and damage, into a single unit. His active skill deals damage to all enemies and afflicts them with one of five random debuffs, sealing one of their senses. Depending on the sense that gets sealed, different effects can occur. Some of these effects include reducing enemy ATK to the lowest; preventing cosmo generation; silencing characters and preventing them from using their active skills; causing all attacks to miss, and lowering their defenses and causing all attacks towards them to result in critical hits.
Shaka is, by far, THE character to aim for if you’re rerolling in Saint Seiya: Legend of Justice.
The evil Gemini Golden Knight who assassinated Sanctuary’s Pope and usurped the leadership of the saints also makes an appearance as one of the best characters in this game. Saga is much more offensive in nature, with skills that inflict powerful direct damage. However, he can also teleport all allies and enemies on the field to the Dimension of Exile for up to 12 seconds, dealing damage to the enemy with each second. Meanwhile, while in this alternate dimension, Saga is immune to most debuffs. And to round out his kit, Saga can also generate Cosmos rapidly during the first 25 seconds of battle, allowing him to unleash his active skill much quicker than others.
The original Sagittarius saint and wearer of its corresponding Golden cloth is another powerful character in this game, specializing in dealing massive direct damage to enemies. He also has a passive skill that increases his attack and attack speed for every 25% HP he loses in combat. Finally, he also has rapid access to his active skills, since he has a passive skill that lets him acquire 8% of the Cosmo that his teammates generate during battle.
Tank characters are seldom among the best units in any gacha game, but Argethi is the exception to this statement, as he’s one of the best in his category. Simply put, if you want to have a tank in your team, Argethi is your best choice, as he has skills that can provide nice CC and damage, and his massive defensive stats let him survive against even the most dangerous of foes. One of his most interesting features is that, as his HP goes down, his damage increases, making him a dangerous character when weakened significantly.
Shiryu’s mentor and guardian of the house of Libra in Sanctuary, Doko is a fine example of a tank that can not only offer tremendous survivability but also complement his defensive kit with some support abilities to aid his team. The fact that he can regenerate his HP at an alarming rate, and even instantly restore 30% of his max HP when his health drops past a certain threshold, makes him one of the toughest characters to kill in combat.
As you can probably tell, the best characters in Saint Seiya: Legend of Justice are those who not only have tremendous skills for their particular role, but also have some sort of support abilities to complement their role, or even to benefit the entire squad.
A Tier Characters
The characters in this tier can be almost as powerful as those in the S Tier, though they rely more on proper team composition and synergies in order to unleash their potential. In other words, while S Tier units stand out for their abilities to shine on their own, their A Tier counterparts play much better in a proper team setup.
The saint of the Whale constellation is one of the best tanks in the game, for those who can’t unlock any of the ones in the S Tier. His kit is fairly straightforward and has skills for dealing damage, shielding his allies, and reducing the damage he takes from enemy attacks. What’s interesting about him, though, is the fact that he can passively purify all allies and himself every 8 seconds, eliminating all CC effects.
The Goddess Athena makes an appearance in the roster, as the only character that’s in her own category, above even the Golden Saints. Despite this fact, however, Athena is not among the strongest in the game, even though she’s a really good support character. Nevertheless, her kit is quite straightforward, specializing in healing and shielding allies, but also with some damage and CC on the side. Also, whenever she’s present on the field, she passively increases the healing and recharge effects on the entire group.
An interesting support character due to the fact that she can actively provide aid to her team WHILE attacking. In fact, most of her support effects scale off Misty’s ATK stat, making her an offensive healer and protector. She has skills for shielding allies with barriers equal to a percentage of her ATK, while also healing them for a percentage of this stat every second. She also has another direct heal that scales off ATK, and that erects another barrier equal to the amount healed. Finally, she can also passively shield herself for 300% of her ATK every time she takes heavy damage that surpasses over 10% of her maximum HP.
Another offensive support unit that combines debuffs with barriers and heals into a neat little package. Mu can blind all enemies for a short duration, making them miss all their attacks. Furthermore, he can passively reduce the damage taken by the team, as well as heal the ally with the lowest HP for a significant amount. And to top it all off, he can remove up to two buffs from an enemy, silencing them for a short duration if he manages to remove the two.
This is the first Skilled-type character on our list, specializing in dealing ranged DPS from the back ranks. Camus is the type of character you’ll entrust with providing tons of damage, which he very well can with most of his skills. Aside from doing DPS, however, he can also control enemies via inflicting the Frozen status effect, which prevents them from moving and generating Cosmo for a short duration. Furthermore, Camus can also seal a target within a frozen coffin, dealing continuous damage while trapped and putting them out of combat for a short duration.
Given the right conditions, Aioria has the potential of being one of the most powerful Warrior units in the game, considering that he can grant himself a stacking 15% attack speed buff that can stack up to 5 times, making him into a veritable powerhouse if left unchecked. He also has great survivability thanks to his Lighting Bolt skill, which deals heavy damage to three enemies and heals himself for 30% of the total damage dealt. And as if that wasn’t enough, Aioria boosts the attack of the entire team by 10% every time an enemy is defeated, making the squad stronger as the fight presses on.
As an Assassin character, Miro is all about dealing massive burst damage to high-value targets in order to take them down as quickly as possible. In fact, his active skill lets him attack a single target up to 6 times, dealing a whopping total of 550% damage, which should be enough to significantly weaken any but the tankiest of targets. Furthermore, each of these attacks will place a “Scarlet Needle” mark on the enemy, and when 15 of these are accumulated, the enemy will die outright. His other attacks also deal damage, and one of them can even trap and restrict the target’s movements, while placing even more Scarlet Needle marks, accelerating their demise.
As you can see, the characters in this tier are either those who are quite strong but easily countered, or those that play better with a proper team. As such, while they’re not as self-sufficient as those in the S Tier, they are quite powerful in their own right.
B Tier Characters
These are characters that aren’t bad per se, but that are outclassed by the other tiers. Still, you can get by with these just fine; just keep in mind that they’re not the best, and will likely be replaced once you unlock better characters.
This Golden Saint of Pisces specializes in weakening his prey with various poison effects, which while somewhat effective at draining his enemies’ HP, leave something to be desired in terms of raw damage. However, Aphrodite can sustain himself remarkably well since he constantly recovers equal to 45% of the poison damage he inflicts.
A powerful Warrior type knight specializing in striking his enemy with a series of blows that can leave them bleeding, but also go through their defenses in order to deal maximum damage. Like Aioria, Shura is also a knight that gets stronger as the battle progresses, since every time he deals damage, he gets a 1.5% attack and attack speed buff, which stacks up to 15 times. In this sense, the more he attacks, the stronger he’ll get. And this buff, combined with both his active and passive armor penetration, allow him to melt even the strongest enemies.
Another great Warrior that combines great attack with awesome defense. Sirius is particularly adept at targeting enemies with a high amount of Cosmo accumulated, stunning them for a duration that increases the higher the target’s Cosmo at the moment they are struck. This character is also ideal for highly offensive formations since he can passively increase the attack speed of all allies by 25% at the start of the battle, making him an ideal matchup with heroes like Aioria on his team.
Another Assassin with the potential of unleashing some of the most devastating attacks in the game, if the conditions are right. This is mainly due to her active skill, which inflicts 7 blows on random enemies, for 130% damage each. If used when only one enemy is left, she can essentially deal massive damage to the target. Another of her skills lets her deal a single powerful blow to a random enemy, and gives her a barrier that blocks damage equal to 300% of her ATK stat. Her damage output is complemented by the fact that her crits are 10% stronger than other heroes, and that she has a passive that progressively increases her crit rate with every attack. The only thing holding her back is the random nature of her attacks, though this won’t really matter once there are only a few targets left on the field.
A Warrior that focuses on hunting down weakened foes using a series of skills that inflict additional effects the lower the enemy’s HP is. However, just like Shina, his most damaging attacks target random enemies, which somewhat undermines his ability to attack the appropriate target. Regardless, an interesting effect comes from his Victory Tab system, which marks the target of his Award of Victory skill. If the target dies within 3 seconds of being marked, Dios gains the Victory Tab effect, which restores 5% of his max HP per second for 6 seconds, making him into a very durable fighter, as long as he’s getting kills or assists.
A specialist in disrupting the enemy’s Cosmo generation, which makes Mephisto ideal for PvP encounters. Most of his skills can either directly drain the enemy’s Cosmo, or make it burn away, making it harder for them to access their most powerful skills. Moreover, he can also deal very decent damage, and even gain permanent buffs to ATK and DEF, and restore a big chunk of his own HP, every time an enemy dies.
C Tier Characters
Last but not least, this final tier is all about the characters that you want to avoid in Saint Seiya: Legend of Justice. These aren’t all inherently bad, but it’s just that there are much better candidates out there.
The Bronze Saint of the Dragon Constellation, trained under the careful supervision of Doko, is a defensive powerhouse, even from very early on when you first unlock him as part of the story in chapter 1. He has passive bonuses to his maximum HP, and can also bolster his defense and make himself immune to certain CC effects. Nevertheless, while he’s a decent tank, he has no support skills, and can’t do much damage on his own.
The titular protagonist of the game and show, Saint Seiya is the Pegasus knight, specializing in fast, powerful strikes to groups of enemies with his mighty Meteor Punch attack. He can deal extra damage when combined with Hyoga, since they can combine their skills into a more powerful version, though you would be sacrificing two slots that could be dedicated to stronger units in order to achieve this interaction.
Despite being one of the most powerful knights in the show, Shun isn’t very strong in Saint Seiya: Legend of Justice. His only redeeming feature is his heal, which can restore the HP of two allies in the front row, and also give them a shield equal to the amount of HP healed. Additionally, he can passively increase the DEF of front row allies slightly.
Of all the starter characters you get in chapter 1, Ikki is probably the strongest, especially since you get tons of duplicates of him, letting you get him to almost 5 stars from the very beginning. His skills specialize in dealing AoE damage and inflicting the Burning status on the enemy, continuously harming them on every turn. However, he can also target the enemy with the least HP and strike a massive blow, using a skill that has its cooldown refreshed whenever he manages to defeat an enemy with it, letting him cause even more harm. And as if that wasn’t enough, Ikki can revive automatically once per fight, giving him much more of a fighting chance against the tougher enemies.
Lastly, the knight of Cygnus and disciple of Camus, Hyoga specializes in inflicting freeze and dealing damage while incapacitating his foes. However, unlike Camus, he doesn’t have neither the versatility nor damage of his master, though he pairs well with Seiya early on. Keep them together for as long as you need, and then replace both of them with better units.
And with that, we close our detailed explanation of the best Saint Seiya: Legend of Justice characters. However, in closing, we wanted to briefly talk about the process of rerolling in this game, in order to get the best results with the least effort and time invested.
Rerolling in Saint Seiya: Legend of Justice with BlueStacks
The process of rerolling consists of a series of steps performed in gacha games with the objective of summoning a few great characters from the very beginning, giving lucky players a significant head start in terms of raw power. The process itself consists of starting a new account, progressing until you get the first free summoning, and then restarting your account if you don’t get what you want. The idea here is to repeat these steps as many times as necessary in order to unlock powerful characters.
We’ve already explored in detail the reroll process in this game in our dedicated reroll guide, which we linked in the introduction of this article.
