Reverse: 1999 Tier List – Best Characters in the Game [Global Version]

Reverse: 1999 might just be the biggest mobile release of 2023 (or at least the coolest game I’ve played in a while), and I am extremely happy to be able to share with you a tier list for the game, ranking the best characters in Reverse 1999.

With so many great heroes to choose from, ranking them is a difficult task, but one that has to be done.

The rankings might change a bit in the future as I get more play time and experience, but for starters, I am sure that this Reverse: 1999 tier list is the most accurate you can find online for the GLOBAL version of the game.

We’re going to list the best characters in Reverse 1999 into four tiers. You might be familiar with these, but here’s a quick recap of what each tier means:

  • Tier S: The absolute best characters in the game
  • Tier A: Very good characters in the game
  • Tier B: Decent characters, but secondary at best
  • Tier C: Characters that are more or less useless

With these in mind, let’s take a look at the Tier List for the amazing Reverse: 1999 below!

Reverse 1999 Tier S Characters (Best in the Game)

Reverse 1999 Regulus character

These are the absolute best characters in Reverse 1999. As in all games of this type, the rarest characters – the 6-star ones – are the best for both early and late game stages. Let’s check them out!

  • Centurion – AMAZING Damage Dealer!
  • Eternity – Great damage dealer, too
  • Medicine Pocket – Best Healer in Reverse: 1999
  • Bkornblume – Best Support / Debuffer
  • An-an Lee – Another great support with team buffs
  • Sotheby – Excellent support with buffs (healing) and debuffs
  • Regulus
  • Lilya
  • A Knight

Note: I will update the article with more in-depth guides constantly. Make sure to check back often for the updated details (and tier list).

Eternity character in Reverse 1999

Damage dealer that also inflicts damage upon herself with the Vigor Handbag skill (which also inflicts Nasty Wound on target, reducing Healing).

Her secondary deal AoE damage to two enemies, but also loses HP. However, her ultimate, Anecdotes in Exeter, has 50% Leech – so she can regain all that lost health relatively easily.

Overall, a great character that requires a bit of play time to master.


Sotheby character in Reverse 1999

Very good support character, perfect for longer fights. Her first skill is “Triple the Dose” which deals damage to 2 enemies, but also inflicts Poison for a number of turns.

The second skill, “Concentrated Essence!” gives cure to all allies for a number of rounds. Very useful!

Finally, her ultimate, “Mix Them All Up” does as the name suggests: Deals plenty of damage to ALL enemies, also activating any active Poison or Cure.


Lilya character in Reverse 1999

All her skills are focused on damage dealing:

  • Crosswind Takeoff: One target attack, but extra damage if critical.
  • Aerial Maneuvers: Deals plenty of damage to 2 targets.
  • A Small Trick (Ultimate): 700% Damage to 1 target, plus 15% Leech if Critical.

A Knight

A Knight Character in Reverse 1999

I have to admit that initially I have placed this character in the Tier A, but decided to move A Knight higher now. Really good for damage dealing!

Let’s look at the skills and what each does:

  • Justice – Damage to 1 target, +1 Moxie if target is defeated.
  • Glory – Deals damage to 2 targets.
  • After AD 778 (Ultimate) – 400% damage to all enemies, +Rousing Morale (extra DMG) to all allies if one enemy is defeated.


Regulus Character in Reverse 1999
  • Treat for the Ears: Massive damage to 1 target
  • Challenge for the Eyes: Massive damage to 2 targets (also reduces Moxie at 2 & 3 stars)
  • Sleepless Rave (Ultimate): Excellent skill that deals massive damage and makes allies immune to ANY type of attack for 1 round, except for Ultimates.

These are the weakest characters in the game, in my opinion. There’s no need to grow them or care about them, no matter how good they look.

In conclusion, we can say that almost all of the rarest characters in Reverse 1999 – the native 6-star ones – are better than the rest and they should be prioritized first.

If you can be picky, then definitely go for the Tier A characters listed above, among which Centurion, Eternity, Medicine Pocket, Bkornblume and Sotheby are the best of the best.

Creating a tier list is not an easy task – especially when personal preferences and different play styles interfere, but I do believe that the one above covers all the characters in Reverse: 1999 Global pretty well and ranks them well.
