Before we start looking at the best characters in Triangle Strategy it’s worth covering a couple of caveats. The first is that there are no truly bad units in this game, every single character has their place and a skilled tactician can use them to great effect.
The second caveat is that we’re not telling you to ditch your preferred team in favour of these characters. You have your own playstyle, you have your own strategies. You may just prefer some characters because you prefer them, you don’t need a reason. Don’t let us, or anyone, tell you that you’re playing Triangle Strategy wrong. You do you.
That said, if you’re finding things a little tough or want to know which characters can give you a boost in battles, we can help you. Here’s our thoughts on the best characters in Triangle Strategy.
The Best Characters in Triangle Strategy
Each of these characters can help you achieve victory in the many battles in Triangle Strategy. Some of these may be harder to get than others but if you’re looking for top-tier fighters, here’s where you’ll find them.
Rejoice, Triangle Strategy beginners. The first character you get is one of the finest swordsmen in the entire game. With high strength and swiftness Serenoa can hold his own in the front line throughout the game. Pair him with a mage and max out his Under Conviction’s Banner attack to ensure your magic users never run out of TP.
Sometimes you need to go in fast and Anna fulfils that need perfectly. This stealthy, rogue-like character can nip into the shadows to hide from enemies and with two actions per turn, you’ll be able to harry and cripple opponents with ease. Anna can make enemies fall asleep, throw poison knives, or simply act as a diversion. However you use her, once you get her in Chapter Two you’ll probably never stop taking her with you.
It takes a long time to get Maxwell and you’ll need a lot of Morality and Liberty in order to get him, but once you do grab this warrior you’ll never look back. Able to lay down huge amounts of damage combined with brilliant mobility on the battlefield, Maxwell is a late addition but a worthy one to the team. Even better, should they die once they read Elite class, Maxwell will revive once per fight. Now that’s power.
Whilst Serenoa fills the role of swordsman in the narrative and on the battlefield, Frederica is the perfect example of a mage.Her spells are powerful but the main selling point with Frederica is the ability to regain TP whenever she kills an enemy. Combine that with Serenoa’s TP-refilling ultimate and you’ve created a monster. What have you done.
The most difficult character to get should be the most powerful, that only seems fair. So if you’re pursuing the Golden Route and you hit Chapter 17 you should get access to Avlora, the absolutely most powerful unit in the game. She’s powerful enough by default but her strength only rises as her health becomes damaged, meaning she’s even stronger should the odds be against her. It’ll take a lot to recruit her but she’s far and away the best character in Triangle Strategy.
