The Suikoden Games - A Classic JRPG Series

Who's Your Favorite? Top 30 Suikoden Characters (1)

Before we get to our favorite characters, let’s talk a bit about the Suikoden games as a memory refresher. The Suikoden Series is a JRPG series that was first released back in 1995 on the PlayStation and later in 1998 for both PC and the Sega Saturn.

What sets Suikoden apart from the other JRPG games of its era is its thrilling and exciting story and the massive roster of 108 characters, many of whom also appear in later games as well.

Our Top 30 Characters from the Suikoden Series

Now we finally get to our top characters to look out for in the new upcoming Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes. Most of the characters are from Suikoden 1 and Suikoden 2 as those are the ones we’ve grown up playing but we added characters from the later games too to not disappoint anyone. So let us get right to it!

1. Mukumuku

Who's Your Favorite? Top 30 Suikoden Characters (2)

We start our list off with Mukumuku from Suikoden 2. He is the leader of the Five Squirrel Squad and makes for a great beast/monster ally because of his solid stats. Mukumuku is a character many miss during their first playthrough but once you find him he becomes a monstrous (quite literally) party member. Did I also mention he’s a squirrel?

2. Razro

Who's Your Favorite? Top 30 Suikoden Characters (3)

The protagonist of Suikoden 4, Razro is one of the most popular characters in the series. From his kind and generous personality to his adept skills as a fighter and mage he is everything the ideal hero should be. No doubt he is our pick for the best character of Suikoden series.

Who's Your Favorite? Top 30 Suikoden Characters (4)

Pesmerga is a mysterious black knight who appears in Suikoden 1 and Suikoden 2. He searches for the black knight Yuber and is an all-round powerhouse of a character. May I just say that he has to be one of the coolest character designs in the game too.

Sgt. Joe is a duck from Suikoden 3. But he’s no ordinary duck, he’s a well-accomplished warrior of the duck clan. Not only an adept warrior he’s also quite the looker according to duck standards. His eyes and tail are his best features.

18. Nanami

Who's Your Favorite? Top 30 Suikoden Characters (19)

Nanami is the step-sister of Riou and one of the key characters of Suikoden 2. Many had to retry the game over and over just so she didn’t die. In-game she’s a pretty balanced character with good speed stats.

We finally get to the Tsundere Tengaar who appears in Suikoden 1 and Suikoden 2. She is the daughter of warrior village Zorak’s chief and joins your adventures along with her boyfriend Hix. She makes for an excellent magic character.

23. Gadget

Who's Your Favorite? Top 30 Suikoden Characters (24)

Gadget is quite different from the rest of the characters as he is a barrel. He's a robot barrel from Suikoden 2 created by Meg for her journey. He makes for a decent mid-game party member but other than that he's pretty average. I mean he is a barrel so what else did you exactly expect? Makes for a cute mascot though.

24. Sierra Mikain

Who's Your Favorite? Top 30 Suikoden Characters (25)

Sierra is a vampire that you encounter in Suikoden 2 who joins you after beating Neclord in your quest. Not much is known about her other than the fact she has been alive (do vampires count as living?) for over 800 years. Nonetheless, she’s a very interesting and mysterious character.

25. Kinnison

Who's Your Favorite? Top 30 Suikoden Characters (26)

Kinnison is a Hunter from Suikoden 2 who lives with his dog Shiro. You can recruit both of them to join your quest so not only do you get a great teammate but also a very good boy as well. Kinnison is an archer unit with some decent stats making him a good choice for your party.

26. Shiro

Who's Your Favorite? Top 30 Suikoden Characters (27)

Now it’s time to talk about the lovable best boy Shiro. Shiro is Kinnison’s pet wolf dog. He is a beast/animal-type character with really good stats, excelling at attack, defense, and speed. He can also become one of the fastest characters in the game.

27. Jowy

Who's Your Favorite? Top 30 Suikoden Characters (28)

Jowy is the childhood friend of both Riou and Nanami in Suikoden 2. What sets him apart from the rest of the characters is that he betrays you at one point in the story but also rejoins you later. Even though he has betrayed us we still love him for his character and great stats.

28. Stallion

Who's Your Favorite? Top 30 Suikoden Characters (29)

Stallion is an elf who appears in Suikoden 1 and Suikoden 2 and prides himself on his speed. He is an archer unit with very high speed. Not really that notable of a character but he does provide the party with the ability to run and doubles the overworld walking speed.

29. Belcoot

Who's Your Favorite? Top 30 Suikoden Characters (30)

Belcoot is one of the first male characters in the series to bear the Falcon Rune who appears in Suikoden 5. He is one of the better-off front-line fighters who has good attack and defense stats. An all-round great choice for your party.

Who's Your Favorite? Top 30 Suikoden Characters (31)

Milich is a narcissistic general with an amazing fashion sense to die for found in Suikoden 1. He is a magic character with pretty decent all-round stats making him a decent party member. Just don't go to the baths with him.
