MEGA MAN X DiVE – MOBILElets us choose from a catalog of 80 playable characters, each with their own unique stats and skills that help to add a twist to the standard gameplay. However, despite these differences that help characters stand out, some of these units are inevitably better than others. This superiority can come for multiple reasons; either because their stats are simply higher than the others, or because their skills might give them an advantage when traversing through levels.
Whatever the reasons may be, it’s understandable that you’ll want to unlock the best characters from the very beginning, which is why many players often try to reroll in their favorite gacha games, MEGA MAN X DiVE included. However, with the game so new, and with its 80 characters to choose from, which are the good ones and which ones should you ignore?
With that thought in mind, we decided to create our own tier list with the best characters in MEGA MAN X DiVE. If you’re rerolling in this gacha RPG, then you’ll want to keep an eye out for these bad boys and girls.
As usual, the characters in this tier are the ones that exceed the most. These units rarely need support or any major pieces of gear to excel, as their strengths come from their native skill sets. Understandably, though, some of these characters are the most difficult to obtain from the gacha, often belonging to the highest rarity. Fortunately, keep in mind that, in the case of the A-rank characters that we’ll mention in this tier, you’re guaranteed to get a unit of this rank whenever you perform a 10x pull.
This character doesn’t get enough love, especially for how easy he is to unlock. As an A-rank unit, there’s a good chance to obtain Zero from the gacha for every 10x pull. That means that, especially if you’re rerolling, you’ll likely run into him on several occasions, which is great since you could definitely do a lot worse than him.
Zero is a great character with a penchant for using melee weapons. In fact, one of his passives augments his skills with close-range armaments, which include mostly energy sabers. And it’s this passive, combined with his devastating skill set, which make him such a powerful character.
Now, we’re not saying Zero’s the best, but if you give up rerolling and stick with him, then you’ll have a great time breezing through levels.
With skills that can root all enemies in their tracks, as well as auto-tracking mines that home into foes and deal tons of damage, Iris is a no-brainer and will be one of the greatest additions to your roster if you manage to summon her early on. And though her skill set is quite powerful as is, her passives can further improve her deadliness, making her even more effective as you level up and upgrade her.
If you’re rerolling and get Iris, you really don’t need anything else as she’ll easily carry you through all the way to the late game.
One of the more offensive choices in this tier, offering skills that can easily destroy all enemies in range. Ferham makes fighting very easy since her skills don’t require much aiming and instead affect all targets in the area, dealing massive damage and being able to clear entire screens in seconds if used correctly.
While the characters in the above tier are quite OP at the moment, the ones we’ll be mentioning here are also very strong, though they don’t quite trivialize the game as much. Settling for one or two of the following is also a good choice if you’re rerolling.
Good news for those who aren’t looking to reroll, as Mega Man X is the character you begin with, and is also a great choice for progressing through the game. X is an all-around unit, featuring good mobility and lots of damage, mainly thanks to his Charged Shot skill. Furthermore, his Tracking Missile ability, while not quite as strong, adds some versatility to his kit by allowing him to continue damaging enemies when otherwise unable to aim clearly, as these projectiles home into their targets before exploding.
No matter what weapons you equip X with, he won’t let you down.
Ultimate Armor X
This character makes the list for one reason and one reason alone: His insane damage output
Ultimate Armor X, aside from looking pretty awesome, has the Plasma Charge Shot skill which, when fully charged, does tons of damage. To put matters into perspective, at base charge, he does only 19.80% damage. However, when he fully charges his shot, this damage is multiplied by 12, being able to obliterate most enemies with no effort at all. Furthermore, this unit has great mobility thanks to his Nova Strike skill, which sends him barreling forward, dealing comparable damage to his charged shot to enemies in the way. And if that wasn’t enough, he can use Nova Strike again if he manages to strike at least one enemy with it the first time.
This A-rank character packs quite a punch, though not as much as the other two on this list. What Vile excels at, however, is at keeping the enemies at bay as well as nuking them with powerful AoE blasts.

Vile can both deal good damage and paralyze enemies with his Electric Shock Round which, against the tougher adversaries, will be extremely useful. Not only that, but his Explosive Round ability deals a bit less damage, but in an area, letting him easily dispatch numerous opponents with a well-placed shot.
When it comes to rerolling for good characters, Vile is always a good choice—but try to aim for the others first if possible.
The characters in this tier are not necessarily bad, but they’re also not great. The following are examples of units that could do good, but that are outclassed easily by others. Use them as an example of what characters to avoid if you’re rerolling.
This is basically a discount Ultimate Armor X, featuring even the same charged shot and dashing skills, but dealing significantly less damage. This is quite odd, considering Proto Man is also S rank, just like UAX.
However, Proto Man has one saving grace, which is that his Proto Shield skill can actually be used to guard from a string of attacks before dashing forward and ramming enemies. This boon effectively grants him some niche utility, though not enough to warrant a spot among the most powerful characters in MEGA MAN X DiVE.
A combination of weak attacks and ineffectual skills make Roll one of the worst characters in the game at the moment, which is a shame since she can both turn invulnerable as well as deal decent AoE damage. There’s simply many other better characters out there that can do everything that Roll does, but much better, which isn’t saying much considering that one of her skills is utterly useless and a waste of a slot.
White Day Alia
Once again, while White Day Alia isn’t bad on paper, the fact that her most damaging skills only affect enemies directly above her immediately reduces its utility, especially since most airborne enemies are easily dispatched with a few shots or slashes. And while her second skill can also do a ton of damage, and has some AoE potential, this still means that she has one skill slot that is almost completely useless, which is a big no-no for us.
As you can probably tell, the markings of a great character usually revolve around having two good skills that can deal tons of damage or produce interesting effects when used. On the other hand, a weaker character is one whose skills are both weak, or that their uses are so niche, that they may as well not have them.
