Final Fantasy Ever Crisis tier list

You're going to need a Final Fantasy Ever Crisis tier list to make sure you're prepared for a new adventure with Cloud and co in the 7 compilation.

If, much like the protagonist himself, you can’t tell your Clouds from your Zacks, then you’re going to need a Final Fantasy Ever Crisis tier list. In this guide, we hope to aid you in picking out the best characters from First Soldier all the way through to Advent Children so you can take Sephiroth down with ease.

Before we fill your mind with thoughts of Tifa, Red XIII, Barret, and more, you should take a look at our Final Fantasy Ever Crisis codes, our list of the best Final Fantasy games, and maybe even our Final Fantasy Crisis Core Switch review.

Final Fantasy Ever Crisis characters

Here’s a brief overview of each of the characters so you know which roles they fill in-game.

Final Fantasy Ever Crisis tier list - Cloud with his arms crossed against a black and grey background

Cloud Strife – DPS

Unsurprisingly, Cloud Strife is in the S-tier of our list. He’s the most powerful DPS in the game at the moment and we recommend pairing him with the Apocalypse and Murasame weapons to reach his full potential.

Final Fantasy Ever Crisis tier list - Barret looking to the left against a black and grey background

Barret Wallace – sub-DPS

Barret falls into the A-tier on our list as he can’t quite match up to the brute strength of Cloud. He can do some solid long-range AoE damage when paired with his Enemy Launcher, Heavy Hauser, or W Machine weapons.

Final Fantasy Ever Crisis tier list - Tifa with her hand on her waist against a black and grey background

Tifa Lockhart – sub-DPS

Tifa is very capable of dishing out decent magic and physical damage, she’s A-tier in our books. You could slot her or Barret into your sub-DPS role. Equip her with the Sonic Striker and Tiger Fangs gloves to make the most out of damage output.

Final Fantasy Ever Crisis tier list - Aerith looking off to the left against a black and grey background

Aerith Gainsborough – support

If you know anything about Final Fantasy 7 you’re probably not surprised that Aerith is the best healer in the game and lands in the S-tier of our list. Make sure you equip her with the Fairy Tale and Wizard Staff.

Final Fantasy Ever Crisis tier list - Red XIII looking off to the left against a black and grey background

Red XIII – support

Red XIII is in B-tier on our list, he’s okay in a support role and can heal allies and dish out AoE magic damage. We recommend equipping him with the Platinum Collar and Gold Collar.

Final Fantasy Ever Crisis tier list - Zack looking off to the left against a black and grey background

Zack Fair – DPS

Zack is a great choice for your main DPS character. He performs well against single bosses and you can use him instead of Cloud if you like. Equip him with the Falchion and Zweihander swords.

Final Fantasy Ever Crisis tier list - Glenn punching his own fist against a black and grey background

Glenn Lodbrock – DPS or sub-DPS

Another B-tier character, Glenn is an okay choice to use for DPS or sub-DPS. However, you’re better off going with Cloud. His best weapons are Apology In Hell and Rest in Peace.

Final Fantasy Ever Crisis tier list - Matt with his hands together against a black and grey background

Matt Winsord – support or sub-DPS

Matt could almost slot into our S-tier but he doesn’t quite make it. He’s proficient in both a support role with his debuffs and healing, but can also pack a punch against enemies. Equip him with the Broadsword: Axis, Prime Number, or Slick Beetle weapons.

Final Fantasy Ever Crisis tier list -Lucia with her arms crossed against a black and grey background

Lucia Lin – support or sub-DPS

The only character in our C-tier is Lucia Lin. She has the ability to silence enemies, which may be useful later in the game, but didn’t help us too much early on. She works best with the Mad Minute and Serpent Eater weapons.

Final Fantasy Ever Crisis tier list - a young Sephiroth standing against a dark blue background

Young Sephiroth

We’ve put this handsome young fella in the S tier of our list as he can perform some pretty hefty ice damage against foes. We recommend you equip him with the Edged Wings as his main weapon along with either Aonibi to boost his MATK or Shinra Blade: Model I for a good non-elemental damage attack.
