Character Tier List: Castle Crashers Remastered
Alien Hominid: as cute as this wee creature might be, being limited to its initial weapon is a terrible downside that sends this character to the bottom of the list.
Green Knight: don’t be deceived by the pose and the poison, this fellow is better left off your party.
Open-Faced Gray Knight: for some reason, this guy exists, but you can ignore this fact!
Peasant: would be fun if the Peasant was the best character in the game, right? Unfortunately, he’s one of the worst.
Orange Knight: it’s a shame that the game’s main fire caster deserves such a poor position. This magic encompasses a good area, but that’s worthless if the fire doesn’t do damage.
Barbarian: good for unlocking one achievement, but it’s hard to vote for his use after that.
Killer Beekeeper: a bland character that has very few advantages to justify its selection.
Civilian: well, it’s… a civilian. Not much he can decently do.
Grey Knight: okay character, nothing special about him.
Royal Guard: a worse version of the Bear, so why use it when you can have the better version?
Saracen: despite trying to imitate the Bear’s creepy face, this is another poor substitute.
Thief: disappointing character, not worth much of your time.
Stove Knight: Top C, a character to consider but don’t get too attached to it.
Brute: a one-weapon fellow who isn’t very good with other set-ups. Nice armour, though, eh?
Conehead: okay magic, cool looks, not much going on for this fellow.
Fire Demon: a lesser version of the Red Knight.
Skeleton: fancy looks, not quite good magic but makes up for his combo locking and basic crowd control.
Iceskimo: similar to the Fire Demon, this one is a lesser version of the Blue Knight.
Pink Knight: usable, though its magic isn’t particularly efficient.
Ninja: unique design, so-so magic.
Snakey: decent boss slayer and good hitting radio with his Thorny Vines splash attack.
Necromancer: Top A character who doesn’t get an S because its magic is, unfortunately, not that great.
Cult Minion: good non-elemental magic and a sinister look make this fellow a good choice!
Bear: a bear with bloodied fur with a murderous-looking stare plus reliable crowd control magic!
Blacksmith: as a Blacksmith, this fellow has a nice set of armour, even if his magic isn’t the greatest.
The Industrialist: an enemy as well as one of the 31 Playable Characters, his non-elemental magic can be the best in the game with a proper set-up.
Fencer: pretty much the same as the Industrialist, choose the one whose looks please you the most!
King: the only character in the game with healing magic, the King deserves his crown!
Blue Knight: fantastic ice magic will carry you through the game with little trouble.
Red Knight: one of the best starting characters with proficient electricity-based magic.
