Fighting game tier lists are a dime a dozen; truth be told are just references and guidelines, not the bible truth. However, they can be a great asset for those wanting to win by using the best characters with the best fundamentals and tools for dominating the game.

Case in point: this recent SoulCalibur 6 tier list from Singapore’s top players Jovian “Shen Chan” Chan and Raymus “Shen Yuan”. Here it is:

God Tier: Raphael, Mitsurugi

Top Tier: Siegfried Azwel, Xianghua, Ivy, Seong Mina, Groh, Yoshimitsu, Kilik, Talim, Voldo

Mid Tier: Maxi, Nightmare, 2B, Zasalamel, Cervantes, Sophitia, Geralt, Taki

Mid Tier, Has Weaknesses: Astaroth, Tira


Keep in mind that this is a tier list crafted by pro players based on their tournament experiences on a local and overseas perspective. Jovian Chan also put in his own 2 cents over some picks, particularly for Groh, Mitsurugi, Yoshimitsu, Zasalamel, and Cervantes.

I’m down with this tier list; at least my mains Seung Mina and Sophitia are pretty much where they’re supposed to be. What do you guys and gals think?
