Tales of Grimm is an idle RPG developed by TAPPLUS featuring a dark take on well-known fairy tale characters. Play as the Dreamer, and lead an army of creatures, heroes, and other entities as you help the natives of the fantastical land of Oz. In our Tales of Grimm Tier List, we’ll discuss some of the best characters to have in the game.


Please be reminded that Tier Lists are not “definite” measures of the character’s strength and potential. There are a lot of factors to be considered like the characters’ availability, their synergy with your team, their utility, equipment, etc. As such, please use our tier lists as what they’re meant to be - a guide. Use tier lists to help you decide whether you’ll want to invest resources and time to build a character. At the end of the day, it’s you who will decide which ones you’ll use based on preference and performance .


Guardians serve as your party's tank and frontline units. They boast high HP and usually, high DEF as well. Having at least one tank in your party will have significant and noticeable advantages, especially when keeping your squishier mage and support units alive to do their jobs unhindered.

Top Tier Characters Overview

We have decided to list down the characters that belong to the S and A rank. We have considered their overall usefulness and the value they can add to your party. If you don’t see your favorite character in our list, that doesn’t mean that the character is bad or not worth getting. In the end, it’s a gacha game and you’ll have to make do with what you have or follow your preferred party/ character preference.

Top Tier Guardians Descriptions


Tales of Grimm

Triton has the ability to inflict Taunt and prioritizes enemy warrior units. The chance to inflict taunt is higher against warrior units. His ULT enables him to protect an ally with the highest ATK, taking 50% of the damage the ally receives while also dispelling all debuffs on the protected ally. Additionally, the protected ally receives a couple more protective buffs.

The best part of his kit in our opinion is his counterattack passive that gives him a high chance to counter an attacker, which cannot be dodged. Have a healer to keep him alive so he can make full use of his taunt and counter abilities to your favor.


Tales of Grimm

Shahryar is a solid guardian with HP-scaling support and offensive skills. He has a self-heal skill based on his max HP value and any overheal amount will be transformed to a Healing Shield. This shield absorbs the damage equal to the overhealed amount. His ULT can damage front and mid row enemies that ignore their DMG relief and DEF stats, while having a high chance of inflicting the [Burning] status effect which will make them lose HP for a couple of rounds. Finally, he has a skill that protects a back-row ally with low HP by redirecting damage to him.

Dark Knight

Tales of Grimm

Dark Knight is an offensive tank. While he lacks defensive and support skills that you can normally find in guardians, he makes up for it with the ability to inflict Curse - a status ailment that deals damage after 2 rounds and can be stacked.

Quasi Mortal

Tales of Grimm

Quasi Mortal is an excellent guardian that has access to an auto-revive skill. His ULT deals damage with a chance to inflict [Burning] while also healing him a great deal of HP. On top of that, he has a passive which can inflict [Flaming] which causes the attackers to lose a portion of their HP based on QM’s max HP. Finally, we have his auto-revive passive that resurrects him with a portion of his HP healed and with damage resistance for a couple of turns.
