How do we rank Reverse 1999 characters?

We grade Reverse 1999 characters not only by the possibilities they bring to the battlefield but their rarity, ease of use, and the competition they face in their role. Character growth has also been taken into account, with some common characters excelling above others as they’re upgraded.

Rankings are also cross-referenced and compared to those of popular content creators and group discussions across the game’s active online communities. This helps to create an average ranking for each character based on early-game worth, endgame potential, and various other discussion-based theories.

The Reserve 1999 tier list doesn’t distinguish between a character’s role in your team. Their worth in your party will depend entirely on optimal team composition. Don’t expect a high-tier character to carry you through the game will no additional effort.

For example, if you’re unlucky enough to pull only high-tier healers or support characters, building a team with nothing but them simply because they rank higher than your other characters, you’ll potentially struggle more than you would with a balanced team of low-tier characters. Being a strategic turn-based team-building title, the synergy between your characters should come above all else.

A top-tier character can only shine when paired with characters that properly enable their skills. At the same time, some high-ranking characters gain their spot not necessarily through their damage-dealing potential but by how their skills might heavily buff the output of the team as a whole.

When is the next new Reverse 1999 character banner?

The next Reverse 1999 character banner release date is February 8, 2024. This will be the second phase of Version 1.3, with the new character in this update being Shamane. Kanjura and Kaalaa Bauna were released as part of the first banner in January 2024.

While we wait, though, we know there are already well over a dozen existing characters yet to be released in the global version, thanks to Reverse 1999’s release as a localized game in another region. We’ll update the tier list for as long as they keep coming, so be sure to consult it before burning through your resources.
