Idol Showdown Tier List

Tier lists are great options for those who are just starting out and want to know how the game’s characters stack up prior to logging in. This Idol Showdown tier list will tell you everything you need to know about the stats of this game’s characters!

Here’s the ranking system that will be used for this list:

Tier S – The very best characters in the game. Tier S character are by far the most valuable in Idol Showdown, and are the characters that players most strive to obtain. They have the very best stats and abilities out of all of the characters.

Tier A – The second-best characters in the game. Tier A characters are the best non-rare characters that are available to players; they have better stats than all other characters, except for those in Tier S.

Tier B – The mid-tier characters in the game. Tier B characters aren’t the best or the worst, they’re just the mid-range characters whose stats and abilities don’t really stand out all that much.

Tier C – The second-to-worst characters in the game. Tier C characters definitely aren’t being sought out by anyone. These characters aren’t quite the worst options in the game, but they’re pretty close to it.

Tier D – The worst characters in the game. Tier D characters are the bottom-of-the-barrel characters with the very worst stats in Idol Showdown. Anyone who gets stuck with a Tier D character in this game is bound to be disappointed.

Now that you’re aware of the ranking system, you can go ahead and keep reading for the Idol Showdown Tier List!
