So many units and monsters in Summoner’s Greed give you a hard time choosing which ones to run and invest your time end effort in, right?
Well, for that reason I have written this tier list to give you an idea which units will be good throughout all stages of the game and absolutely worth the invest and which ones are more like a waste of time and shouldn’t be on your list (or be replaced at later stages of the game).

The Best Units/Monsters in Summoner’s Greed
Let’s start off with the list directly
Amaterasu absolutely belong to the very top in Summoner’s Greed, no question about that. He’s the best damage dealer in the game and can be used in pretty much any level. Useful as carry, getting DPS in, good for farming… just an absolutely great unit!
By the way, if you need a faster strategy to farm the Summoning Stones to get more mythics, please check out my guide here and I’m sure you will get one or two strategies out of it.
Jiraiya is very likely the 2nd-best damage dealer in Summoner’s Greed after Amaterasu, but a little bit slower although great range and very useful in many farming setups as well. Can also played in any level.
King in Yellow can change a lot by changing the fact that elemental levels that weren’t completable are completable and let you complete pretty much anything in Summoner’s Greed. The only downside of him? Well, you need other units along with him to make him work well. So, a really end-game monster unit to have, none you will run earlier as you’re just lacking the other units around him.
Horus with his speed buff is absolutely insane and besides Speedy the only monster that will be able to give you that speed buff and makes absolutely every team in Summoner’s Greed better and I can’t much think of a setup where you wouldn’t run Horus in if you have him at a decent level.
Anubis is a very strong utility unit and his damage multipliers are important to other carry monsters and you normally will only see him shine in late- to end-game in Summoner’s Greed. He’s not absolutely necessary but a very strong monster overall.
Hades is a solid damage dealer through all stages of the game and can be easily a KPR carry. There’s only one downside and that’s that you can find cheaper units for that so you don’t have to have him and invest that much into him.
Speedy & Mighty can be sued through the whole game to buff up your carry units and also help to enable and are absolutely worth ranking quite high. They just help your progression so much that I rank them this high.
Also, if you want to see how to combine them in a good farming setup, please refer to my layout guide here, there’s a good setup for players in every stage of Summoner’s Greed included.
Slime King guarantees you consistent JR Nightmare clears and his use is really useful through the entire game. Be aware that sometimes he can speed up your farming setups and sometimes he can slow it down.
Ra has exactly one use in Summoner’s Greed and that’s IQT, so for that reason I ranked him here in the A Tier. Very crucial for that but not that much anywhere else, but especially towards end-game IQT is no important that I see him here.
Zeus is a very good IQT carry and is falling a little short with the cosmic update but still a unit that I would consider here in the higher tiers, but wouldn’t invest in him from scratch at this point anymore. Also, not to forget, his great utility as he can stun with his basic attacks.
Ifrit is the evolution of Hellhound so pretty much at the same ranking. A little stronger and you need to decide if you want to do the hard work for the evolution.
Hellhound is very good for buffing in elemental Challenges and often necessary to get you the completes
Susanoo is hard to rank, as you never completely need her. You can get the shop summons with Gems as well so you will sacrifice some overall strength when running her. But she can be really handy farming (especially using Auto Clicker – yes, I’ve also written a guide here about setting up Auto Clicker that you might check out, or not). So, I’m not emphasising it but, in reality, so many higher players run that so in terms of giving you a real tier list I have to rank her here.
Kevin is a very nice carry for the normal levels and can be used in JR Hard as well and also viable as main unit in cheap elemental challenge setups. Just viable overall and for the cheap invest worth it.
Mr. Flamey opens a very nice route to clear the nightmare level and is overall a very solid unit in Summoner’s Greed.
Hanzo is able to perform well in classic level farming setups. Maybe you could use him as a nightmare carry, but I don’t see a very well use for Hanzo in common setups in most modes other than that.
Cutethulu has pretty much the single role and use as a carry in Cosmic Tower but is over-shadowed by King in Yellow. Also not really much damage compared to other units.
Shupnikkurat is pretty much the same as Cutethule, only carry in Cosmic Tower and later you will replace her with King in Yellow.
Felina can be used in farming setups and gives them a small speed increase, but can also be useful to clear the nightmare levels if you use CMG route without having a mythic. Not overall exceptional great but has some uses.
Ash is actually a pretty solid stunner in the classic levels and useful if you get him.
Deathbite can cut down the HP of enemy monsters and becomes useful at some points and can be combined well with Anubis and gets some niche uses towards end-game in Summoner’s Greed so I think B Tier is absolutely fair.
Frostbite has actually a pretty good stun and can be used in cheaper Volcano Goddess farming setups with the Mr. Flamy clear route.
Clyde can be good for speeding up farming setups. Not more, not less, he’s useful for that.
Regular Flamy is comparable to Clyde and good for speeding up your farming setups.
Soloseidon is the evolution of Poseidon and only has the very niche usage in Wrath of the Volcano Goddess, but today there are some new setups that are working as well there so there’s no need to rank him any higher.
Arch-Archimedes is a little higher as she will provide global damage on top of the global stun and can be support/damage in Volcano Goddess, maybe even a cheap team carry.
Sluggy can be a decent support unit in IQT with his stunning mechanics, but that’s more rarely the case so he’s here in the niche tier.
Archimedes provides a global stun which is useful and is valuable through the full game and also retains value in the elemental Challenges and Volcano Goddess.
Infernus can be a decent damage carry for the normal levels, not more and not less. There are better damage dealers in Summoner’s Greed but he’s not that bad. But once they are over, there’s no use for him anymore…
Puffy plays pretty much the same role as Infernus.
Monke has a decent stunning in his kit that you can use at some stages and the cheap invest make him somewhat interesting for some players, but also his damage output is not really interesting.
Sparky also has decent stun and can provide some value in cheap teams in Summoner’s Greed.
Regular Capuccino has also decent stunning ability so you can use him at one point.
Regular Teddy also provides decent stuns qualifying him for this position.
Regular Chilly is like Capucciono and Teddy here for his decent stunning.
Bastet provides neither great damage nor good stuns but other units like Archemidis or Slime King are better for that and they can stun globally with a decent duration. I’d not say horribly bad monster but also not needed really that much.
Poseidon has the main issue is not that good of a water unit and you can’t actually use him as a Volcano Goddess carry as his damage is not really happening and the ability kit neither. So, as this is his only real ‘theoretic’ use, I ranked him that low.
Stacky is a solid baseline unit to get your first clears on the normal levels so I think ranking him here in the niche tier is absolutely fair.
Rocky has a pretty alright stun that can be useful at points.
Crispy has some usage in classical farming setups so I think the niche tier is absolutely fair for him.
Fury has an alright ish stun that you can use in classic levels, but nothing special overall.
Yeti is not a good stunner and I would rank him lower but he’s useful in cheap Volcano Goddess setups so I think C Tier is the best he can ask for.
Lightning has pretty much the same role as Yeti.
Devon provides the HP cutting that can be used in some setup, but by the time this could be really good you wouldn’t use him as a core unit.
Pony Sparks has a decent stun and has some use in IQT here and there.
Chronus is not a good stun, he has stunning. That’s pretty much it and everything that keeps him away from the lowest tier.
Iced Cappuccino doesn’t really have much damage but provides that small stun that can make him useful at the beginning.
Glacial Darkwing is not great, by the time you will be able to get him and evolve him you have so many better options that he’s not worth using.
Pyro is a damage dealer that is outperformed by so many other units that it’s not really worth talking much more about him.
Jack is supposed to be a damage dealer but there are simply so many better units, from start to mid game in Summoner’s Greed.
Evolved Slimey is, although it’s a pretty cheap one, a evolution you should not really think about too much. The effort compared to the outcome is simply not worth it.
Extra Chilly is also maybe useful in very budget Volcano Goddess setups but actually not a unit I’d go for.
Evo Ash (Dust) is not really viable looking at the investment in perspective what you get for it. I mean you could use him in some Volcano Goddess farming setups but at the point you have access to so many other units that’s it not really worth it.
Skelington can be used in KPR but overall not a unit that I would spend too many thoughts on. By the time you will get him there your KPR setup is actually a lot better so no real use for him.
Spidey, first of all, is really slow. I really won’t recommend him much but he’s overall a little better than the ones ranked below in D Tier.
Limzard provides a stun but nothing too good and nothing more.
Cheebs can be used to get a good stall on the Golem in Evil Summoner, but it’s not that efficient. At least he has stun so I have him here in the D Tier.
Artemis has bad DPS output and I don’t see any use for her at all right now in Summoner’s Greed.
Mummy King provides no damage and what else can I say here, just bad.
Archangel Gabriel has bad damage so no recommendation for him.
Darkwing provides really bad damage, so F Tier for him.
Ex-Pyro doesn’t see any usage in KPR at all even after the evolution so I have no reason to not put him in this lowest tier.
Rudolph is another damage dealer that just doesn’t provide much damage. Not much more to say about him.
Slimey is cheap but also not good. Not much damage and not a great monter. I don’t think there’s any use for him past the tutorial in Summoner’s Greed.
I don’t see any use or reason to use Evo Teddy at all, sorry. The effort compared to the minimal improvement is absolutely not worth it compared to regular Teddy.
Spikey has this armor break that is useless in any stage of Summoner’s Greed and overall damage is not really good.
Grimey has very bad damage and his armor break is also useless, pretty much like Spikey.
Moka is also a bad damage dealer that I don’t see any real use for.
Evo Mocha is simply no good unit overall.
Magna Darkwing is as bad as the regular version and considering what you need to go through for doing the evolution makes me put him at the very end of this tier list. Bad damage, no fire element attached, I don’t want to go on with the list fo reasons he’s in the very last spot here…
So, this is my ranking of all the monsters and units in Summoner’s Greed. If you have questions or believe that I made a horrible mistake at one point, just drop a comment below.
