The most distinctive aspect of each MOBA is its hero roster. Despite the fact that many of them share many of the same strategy gameplay principles, at least in terms of their primary objectives and goals primarily to eliminate the opposing team’s center building. Onmyoji Arena Characters can span to about 100 Shikigamis. Each of the six categories that make up this shikigami has its own distinct statistics, abilities, passives, and special qualities. If Onmyoji: Arena is new to you, it’s likely that you don’t truly know who the meta champions are or which heroes offer the most strength.
Understanding which Shikigami are excellent and which are subpar is understandably one of the most difficult aspects, at least for beginners, given the huge diversity. Aside from becoming familiar with the controls, the match’s flow, and the fundamentals of the game, getting to know the game’s wide cast of characters well is one of the keys to victory because it will help you plan appropriately to thwart the enemy’s advances. Additionally, by understanding how the various Shikigami interact with one another, you may choose the best characters to take out the enemy’s team.
With that in mind, today we are going to take a quick overview of the best Shikigami in the game, in other words, Tier S+. But before we jump into the list, let’s take a quick overview of what the Shikigami are.
What are Onmyoji Arena Characters – Shikigamis?
The Onmyouji enlist the aid of Shikigami, which are supernatural beings. They create agreements that are documented through a contract book. Players can get a shikigami’s contract book in its entirety or in pieces to make a deal with the shikigami. The records of summoned shikigami can be found there. Shikigami are called forth during combat using a device akin to a paper doll. Fun Fact: in Japanese folklore, Shikigami is a fictitious creature brought to life through a difficult summoning ritual. If the invoker is skilled and experienced, their Shiki can control people, animals, and even other spirits.
If the invoker is complacent, however, their shikigami may eventually spiral out of control. They develop their own will and consciousness, and even raid their own master’s home and kill them in retaliation. Typically, shikigami are summoned to carry out dangerous instructions for their masters, like espionage, stealing, and enemy tracking. The majority of the time, shikigami is supposed to be invisible, but by enclosing them in tiny, skillfully folded, and cut paper manikins, they become visible.

Kani Hime is one of the indisputable top lane champions in Onmyoji Arena. She’s a force in 1v1s and a great Shikigami for focusing on and taking out particular players, like the other team’s hard carry. the only flaw of this Shikigami is that she’s fairly challenging to handle efficiently and that she may be sported to some extent.

Having Powerful Onmyoji Arena Characters is just Half the Battle
Like most games, having powerful and overrated characters in Onmyoji: Arena will not make you invincible. They will increase your chances of winning but will not ensure your triumph. With that said, knowing or becoming one with your Shikigamis is important. It’s crucial if you want to dominate your opponent. If you know how to play a hero, stick with it. Also if you’re aware of how to overcome all of its flaws. One could get away with a lot in the lower tiers. And it’s regardless of whether the Shikigami is present in the meta.
Therefore, it doesn’t matter if you triumph with only a C-tier hero or fail with an S-tier one. What matters is that you know what you’re doing. But if you’re looking for more guides and news regarding this game, make sure to stay tuned here in Games.lol!
