Defense Derby is a newly-launched tower defense game developed by KRAFTON, the creators of popular titles like Battlegrounds Mobile India and NEW STATE Mobile. In this game, you can collect a wide variety of characters and form a deck to help you in PvP tower defense battles against three other players.

In Defense Derby, characters are divided into heroes and units, and heroes command units to defend the tower by assisting them with their active and passive skills. If you are new to this free-to-play game, you might be wondering which heroes and units are the best to use. With this guide, you can find the best tier list for all characters in Defense Derby.

Best heroes in Defense Derby

As of right now, there are nine unique heroes in Defense Derby. Here are their rankings based on how well they perform in PvP:

Tier Heroes
S Scarlet, Elgry, Osborn
A Nalyn, Leon, Merham
B Gruvo
C Seria, Aella

Scarlet is one of the best heroes you can use in Defense Derby, and she is available for free to everyone. Scarlet is a Rare single-target Human hero whose passive skill buffs critical damage and guarantees a critical shot every few seconds. You can also use her active skill to deal significant AOE damage.

Following Scarlet, Elgry and Osborn are both excellent choices. Elgry buffs the attack power of all Physical DMG units and slows down enemies, while Osborn is similar to Elgry, but also buffs attacking speed.
