Here is the arena's Viability Ranking from OP-Rank to F-Rank. OP is the most useful choice on your team and F is not recommended. Only legendary monsters are covered, since you have no reason not to use them. Monsters in the ranks are listed in alphabetical order. If you would like to vote on a monster's Rank, go to the ML Voting Page.

OP RankEdit

These monsters are too good for the SS+ tier, so they get their own special tier. By far the best monsters in the entire game. All of them are either Nemesis or Warmasters. It takes a lot of patience and time (and in some cases, real money) to get them.

SS RankEdit

Restricted to the best of the best. These Legendary Monsters are very good, but cut just short of OP rank for having either lower stats or just weaker moves compared to OP rank. Despite that, they're easily some of the best in the game, and a team should really consider having any of them.




S RankEdit

Restricted to monsters rivaling the ones in SS rank only to have lost due to either a bad move or worse stats.




A RankEdit

Restricted to monsters that perform great or at least good in the competitive scene. The ideal monsters you should tend to go for, if you aren't able to obtain higher-rank monsters.





B Rank Edit

Restricted to monsters with average performance in the Monster Legends meta game, due to average stats or situational moves. But they still are considered as viable options for your team.




C RankEdit

Restricted to monsters that have some flaws in the current meta game, but can still perform good in some occasions.




D RankEdit

Restricted to monsters that are better than E rank due to better moves and/or stats, but cut short of C rank. Almost never use them, they aren't worth much of your time in the competitive scene.




E Rank Edit

Restricted to monsters that are so weak, that they can lose to epics. Only consider using these if you don't have other legendary Monsters.



F Rank Edit

These monsters are so bad, they lose to common rank monsters. They are absolutely awful,

Epic MonstersEdit

Some epic monsters can be as strong as some legendary monsters! Go to Monster Legends Epic Guide to see Viability Rankings, Stats and advice for them!


Here is where you may discuss with others about monster's current tiers and where you feel they should or shouldn't be ranked as. It's also the spot where you can debate your argument and decision. Always remember though, you are always able to edit the list.

There was some old discussions in here that have now been kindly put to rest by MangoStarco, so thought I delete some of the old stuff. :)


I'd like a second opinion on Ihtiander, He's a really solid addition to my team with a team stun, team freeze, a damage + team blind, and a damage+ stun/freeze depending on which you prefer. He's made me win against plenty of enemies that are 10-20 levels higher with a speed and team speed rune, and always goes first.

"He's pretty good, but, if he dies, that's it. You need powerful attackers to back him up since he's a denier. (Black Destruction 92)"


I would sorta like a another opinion on my Sparking Mantis i just got. It helps me quickly deny and stamina devour any attacks or deniers. It also does quite good against all the blobs that have popped up. I was wondering if it was good and what people think of it.


Where is Megaosteum in the rankings? What do people think of this fire legend?

Erm... He's good I guess... Maybe A- or B+. There are just so many fire attackers and megaosteum is a bit of a poor man's Darmith. With some good speed and power runes, though, he can still be dangerous. He used to be good because of his 60 dmg 0cd, but now there are monsters like Kiridar who have 70 dmg with no cooldown. Go ahead and use him, but he'll get outclassed in the higher levels. He's also easy to deny, with his trait being immune to burning.imtn


Can i just say, how underrated Muerte McBlood is... He's such a good monster. I have a VI Life rune, a V strength rune, and a V speed rune on him. And he demolishes every monster that faces me. My defense is always won with him, and when i attack, i always win. First, i run "Back to the damage" No monster can hurt him during their next attack (It gives Evasion) And after they attack he can use a move with Double damage. Which is insane. It only costs 17 stamina points. Which is really good. After that, if i want to take down a VoltaiK or so, i would run "Inherited fangs" and one shot it. Or if you want to get really good damage on all the other monsters. (Maybe kill them in the process.) You run "No one calls me bat" And they will have a sliver of health left, enough for your other monsters to one shot them. And then he has a move named "Orlok curse" Which i usually run in this order. 1 back to the damage, 2 No one calls me bat/Inherited fangs, 3, Inherited/No one calls me bat and 4 Is usually Orlok curse. He should be S+ He is not an A+ Monster, i have A+ Monsters and hahaha! They don't even compare to him. So i think he should be an S+ Monster. He is literally so good. I got him for free! From a 72-hour challenge and that has changed my Multiplayer rankings and such! He is just too amazing to be in A+. It's a S+ Or a S monster. I don't know who put him in A+ But they probably don't even use him to the full extent.
