Top Ten Playable Einherjar In Valkyrie Profile

Valkyrie Profile is a 1999 JRPG with a very unique battle system and around 25 playable characters, known as Einherjar. This list is for the best recruitable ones, so characters like Valkyrie herself don't count. Also optional characters like Freya, Lezard, and Brahms who are only available in the optional dungeon also don't count.

The Top Ten

1 Lawfer

Great for building up combo especially the 3rd attack. PWS sucks in accumulating gauge though, should only be used as a starter or a finisher to maximize all 4 PWS. My favorite spear type.

Amazing damage king, this spearman deals powerful damage especially for his third attack, which hits three times. - NuMetalManiak

2 Belenus

A horribly underrated character. Great swordsman-type attacker, with one of the strongest Purify Weird Soul attacks in the whole game. I try to keep him with me as much as possible for my game. - NuMetalManiak

3 Aelia

Another spear wielder, she's only slighty weaker than Lawfer, but she's still strong, with another great finisher that does amazing damage. - NuMetalManiak

4 Arngrim

It's the best character! awesome damage, awesome DMP, and awesome status

Look at how big his sword is! If that does not scream badass I don't know what does. A powerhouse character, and the best of the three recruitable heavy knight characters. - NuMetalManiak

5 Lucian

Lucian would be higher on this list, except that he needs to be transferred in Chapter 5 or 6 if you want the A ending to the game. Why is Lucian great? His third attack, Shining Bolt, hits an excessive number of times, making him an ideal character for gaining magic gems. Also he has Brock's voice from Pokemon. - NuMetalManiak

6 Mystina

All of the mages in Valkyrie Profile are interchangeable. For me Mystina's the most likeable, and one of the more versatile. I like her voice too (same as Jesse from Pokemon). - NuMetalManiak

7 Shiho

She doesn't come with an attack spell, but makes a good support mage. - NuMetalManiak

8 Jayle

One of the more average sword-wielding characters, but she's fast enough. - NuMetalManiak

9 Nanami
10 Jun

Another average swordsman character, but he's got a good Purify Weird Soul move, one that builds up the energy gauge really quickly. - NuMetalManiak

The Contenders

11 Janus

The best archer other than Valkyrie herself. He also has a cool character design. - NuMetalManiak
