The King of Fighters Allstar Tier List (2021 Update): Our Updated Ranking of Every Top-Grade Fighter in the Game

Netmarble’s The King of Fighters Allstar launched globally 2 years ago, bringing together fighters from the different incarnations of the popular franchise as well as introducing never-before-seen variations of some characters. With its awesome mix of fighting game and beat ‘em up genres, packed with tight graphics, stunning effects, and explosive action sequences, The King of Fighters Allstar quickly nabbed spots in top lists of games across both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, maintaining rankings within the top grossing games of the latter. The game has reached more than 10 million downloads from the Google Play Store alone and continues to maintain largely positive reviews from users on both mobile platforms.

If you have just started playing The King of Fighters Allstar and would want to fast track your progression through the introductory phase of your adventure, we recommend that you read through our The King of Fighters Allstar beginner’s guide first. Building a team consisting of your favorite fighters from the game can be fun yet may not be effective. Our teams guide can help give you ideas on how to form cohesive and synergistic teams and dominate every challenge you encounter.

Investing in the right fighters and forming synergistic teams with them are two important things, but The King of Fighters Allstar’s battle card system takes strategy and synergy to a whole new level. As this feature is relatively unique, you should learn more about it. You can check out our battle cards guide, as well as our battle cards combo guide to familiarize yourself with the concept and make the most out of this feature.

the king of fighters allstar best fighters

We also published our own The King of Fighters Allstar tier list previously, counting down our top ten picks for the fighters available at launch as well as an upcoming fighters guide for the best fighters previously unreleased globally. You can check how our former picks fare in comparison with today’s enormous roster of characters in the game.

Like all other tier lists we have published, it can be expected that this one will be subjective. There are as many valid opinions as there are players in the game and we believe that none is more valid or important than all others. The purpose of this tier list is to serve as a guide for players who are just starting out as well as players who may have been away from the game for quite some time and need to catch up on the new fighters and other content.

As much as we are inclined to rank all these fighters down, their numbers make it more practical to lodge them in tiers instead. By this, we mean that all fighters within each tier are considered of equal value and we took into consideration their individual performances across both PvE and PvP content, taking into account their leader skills as well as other abilities.

While in different tiers, we consider all fighters under tiers S, A, and B as viable investments with prioritization resting on the higher tier. Fighters under tier C, which we won’t be discussing, are fairly decent units to fill your teams as well.

And that ends our The King of Fighters Allstar 2021 tier list. While we understand that the possibility of discerning opinions at every section of our tier list, we hope that the majority of it will prove to be acceptable and agreeable to you. Unlike most tier lists we have made where only the top-most tiers are the only powerful or useful units in the game, the fighters in our tier list only make up a small fraction of The King of Fighters Allstar’s massive roster of fighters. In this sense, each of these fighters are worth your time and investment.

The King of Fighters Allstar is bound to still add more fighters in the coming updates. As such, the consideration of fighters within each tier will again change. More so, if the game’s developers make adjustments to the fighters in the hopes of balancing each one out even better or fixing what some players deem to be broken characters. In any case, we hope that your top picks of fighters wound up in the top tier of our list. If not, you are very much welcome to share your views and opinions about these fighters down in the comment section!
