Developed by Alim in collaboration with Square Enix, Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is a free-to-play turn-based RPG for  iOS and Android. It’s a spin-off from the established Final Fantasy games in that the battles are simplified, (closer in fact to Alim’s own Brave Frontier series), although there is plenty that marks out BBFE as a Final Fantasy game. The classic art style is front and center, as ever, plus the magic system extends to the summoning of Espers, which is as Final Fantasy as it gets. It’s also one of the most popular games in the long-running franchise, having notched up of 40 million downloads.  This Final Fantasy Brave Exvius tier list is for those among them who’ve been finding it hard to uncover the best units in the game.

Notable about BBFE is that you can summon characters from past Final Fantasy and Brave Frontier titles, as well as from other Square Enix franchises such as Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, and Kingdom Hearts. Musical collaborations have also seem the likes of Ariana Grande and Katy Perry take pixel form in the game.
