Tekken 7 Tier List 2023 (Ranked S to D)

Last updated

Tekken 7, the seventh instalment of the popular fighting game series, has been a mainstay in the esports scene since its release in 2015.

As with any competitive game, players constantly debate which characters are the strongest or the weakest. This has led to the creation of the Tekken 7 Tier List, which ranks each character based on their overall strength and effectiveness in the game.

As we move into 2023, let’s take a look at the current Tekken 7 Tier List (Ranked S to D).

Tekken 7 Tier List 2023

S Tier

Starting with the S Tier, we have Akuma, Geese Howard, Feng Wei and Julia.

These characters are considered the strongest in the game due to their impressive damage output, exceptional movesets, and overall versatility.

Akuma, a guest character from the Street Fighter series, boasts an incredible ability to deal damage from range and up close and strong defensive options.

On the other hand, Feng Wei, Julia and Geese Howard are classic Tekken characters with powerful combos and excellent pressure tools.

Here is our complete list of characters in the S Tier:

  • Akuma
  • Geese Howard
  • Feng Wei
  • Julia Chang

A Tier

Moving down to the A Tier, we have several characters who are just slightly below the S Tier in terms of strength. These include characters such as Fahkumram, Kazumi Mishima, Jin Kazama, and Julia Chang.

Kazumi is known for her excellent mix-up game and strong pokes, while Jin Kazama’s electric moves and strong wall carry make him a formidable opponent.

Here is our complete list of characters in the A Tier:

  • Bryan
  • Claudio
  • Dragunov
  • Jin
  • Kazumi
  • King
  • Leroy
  • Marduk
  • Paul
  • Zafina

B Tier

In the B Tier, we have characters such as Alisa, Devil Jin, and Kazuya. These characters are still strong in their own right but may require a bit more finesse and skill to use effectively.

Here is our complete list of characters in the B Tier:

  • Alisa
  • Bob
  • Devil Jin

C Tier

In the C Tier, we have characters such as Armor King, Jack-7, and Xiaoyu. While these characters are still viable in the hands of a skilled player, they may require more work to use effectively than the characters in higher tiers.

  • Armor King
  • Asuka
  • Eddy
  • Gigas
  • Hwoarang
  • Jack-7
  • Leo
  • Master Raven
  • Negan

D Tier

Finally, in the D Tier, we have characters such as Kuma, Noctis and Yoshimitsu. These characters are considered the weakest in the game due to their limited options and lack of overall effectiveness.

Yoshimitsu, a fan-favorite character, has a diverse moveset but lacks the overall strength and pressure tools of characters in higher tiers.

  • Anina
  • Kuma
  • Lars
  • Lei
  • Lucky Chloe
  • Noctis
  • Panda
  • Yoshimitsu

In conclusion, the Tekken 7 Tier List is constantly evolving as players continue to discover new strategies and techniques.

As we move into 2023, it will be interesting to see how the rankings change and which characters rise to the top. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a newcomer to the series, understanding the strengths and weaknesses of each character is essential to success in Tekken 7’s competitive scene.
