Castle Crashers Tier List (October 2022) – Best Characters Ranked

On your quest to save the princesses from the evil wizard? Then you need to check out the best characters in the game, through our very own Castle Crashers tier list.

Castle Crashers is a video game released in 2008 by the indie developer The Behemoth.

It was created to be played with four players, each with their own character and set of special powers. The objective of the game is to defeat the evil wizard who has kidnapped your princesses and a magic crystal from your kingdom.

The gameplay is similar to that of a platformer, but with more emphasis on hack and slash combat than platforming skills.

The player controls one of over 30+ characters who are on a quest to save the princesses from the evil wizard.

Each character has its own starting weapon and abilities, specialties, elemental, splash and projectile attacks, and more.

So because of that, we’ve decided to create our very own Castle Crashers tier list to help new players but also old-school veterans alike choose the best characters in the game.
