A strong team of powerful heroes is essential for success in the World of Water mobile game by StarFortune. As creators of popular games such as Nations of Darkness and Beast Lord: The New Land, they have once again delivered a thrilling experience with their newest release.

In this World of Water tier list, we will cover the best characters to use in this match-3 game, so you can build your team strategically and become the King of the Oceans.

How we ranked the heroes in World of Water

In World of Water, heroes are categorized by their type (Combat and Development), the number of stars, and their color (which you will see below after each hero’s name). These factors are crucial in determining a hero’s strength and potential on the battlefield. With that in mind, we have ranked the characters across five tiers.

S-Tier Characters

In this tier, you will find the most powerful heroes with the highest number of stars and excellent combat skills. These heroes are a must-have for any team.

S-tier characters, the best heroes in World of Water tier list
S-tier characters, the best heroes in World of Water tier list
  • Ornate Rock Lobster (Green, Combat)
  • Alaskan King Crab (Red, Combat)
  • Nautilus (Blue, Combat)
  • Dolphinfish (Green, Combat)
  • Nautilus (Blue, Combat)
  • Japanese Spider Crab (Yellow, Development)
  • Lionfish (Red, Combat)
  • Zebra Shark (Purple, Combat)
  • Moonfish (Red, Combat)
  • Smooth Hammerhead (Yellow, Development)

Ornate Rock Lobster is undoubtedly the best hero in World of Water. His unique bonuses for Mobula troops greatly increase their strength and effectiveness in battles. Additionally, Ornate Rock Lobster has a powerful Tactical Skill that deals great damage to enemy troops and boosts the HP, defense, and attack of Mobula troops. He can also increase his teammates’ HP and dispel the target’s buff, which makes him a valuable combat hero.


Heroes in this tier are also strong, but may have slightly less effective skills than S-Tier characters. However, they are still valuable assets on the battlefield and city development.

A-tier characters in World of Water
