Best Vampire Survivors Characters (March 2024)

It’s a very tough competition, given that there are 68 characters at this moment, but some names definitely come out on the top and perform better than others. The Tier List I have made has a wide range of Tiers, which I will gladly explain below. If you want, you can check out our Vampire Survivors weapon tier list, too.

March 2024 Update: Patch 1.9 is out, with two new characters.

Vampire Survivors Character Tier List Explanation

  • S+ Tier: Best of the Best, no explanation needed, right? They’re mostly busted.
  • S Tier: Great characters, really! But S+ Tier overshadows them by a visible margin.
  • A Tier: Decent characters with interesting abilities, great to have some fun.
  • B Tier: These are average characters that you can use at the start, but you will ditch them as soon as you unlock everything that requires you to play as them.
  • C Tier: Below Average characters. You do not want to stick around after you unlock everything that requires you to play as them.
  • F Tier: Trash or unstable characters that are difficult to play (albeit sometimes being able to reward you well). Some streamers love to make content that involves making these characters look good.
  • R Tier: A random Tier that depends on the random factor assigned to the character. Their abilities and capabilities change every time you start the game, so it’s between “completely unusable” and “the most immortal God of all immortal Gods that ever walked this plane”.

By the way: Vampire Survivors became so popular that it seems we’re getting a Vampire Survivors TV show soon!

Some key notes:

  • The characters are sorted alphabetically within Tiers, except for the S+ tier, where Queen is a Queen for a reason, and Red Death is stronger than Big Trouser.
  • Sammy is up there because he’s a beyond-insane machine for gold farming, that’s all.
  • Guardian Pina is a great character for co-op, but in single-player, its abilities don’t work. Crewmate Dino suffers the same fate.

Do you have all the secret characters unlocked? If not, check out all the secret characters in Vampire Survivors. Who knows what poncle will think of next? Maybe a playable vampire? Or maybe we were all vampires all along?

The vast majority of characters that are placed high on our Vampire Survivors Tier List are secret characters that need to be unlocked. Make sure you pick up the Scrolls of Morbane if you want to view all the secrets Vampire Survivors has to offer in-game, including many of these excellent characters.

We hope that you have enjoyed this Tier List. Some subjectivity exists, as with any Tier List, but generally, this should be it.
