Below is a theoretical ranking of characters in the Kiseki universe by strength. The characters are separated in tiers. Characters within the same tier can be regarded as equals that, on equal footing and in theory, would lose to characters in a higher tier, end in a draw against characters from the same tier and triumph over characters in a lower tier.

Unless sources are provided, the ranking is based on rankings debated and compiled by Japanese fans in 軌跡シリーズ強さ議論スレ ('Kiseki series power level discussion threads'). The current ranking is based on the update of November 20th, 2017.

  1. 1.0 1.1 Wazy Hemisphere suggests that his commander, Ein Selnate, might be the only person able to fight Arianrhod on equal footing.[1]
  2. 2.0 2.1 Arianrhod states that Aurelia Le Guin is now stronger than she once was [as Lianne Sandlot].[3]
  3. The conclusion of a recent duel between Aurelia Le Guin and Victor S. Arseid concluded that Aurelia is stronger than Victor.[2]
  4. 4.0 4.1 Trails of Cold Steel, Chapter 4. Rutger Claussell and Baldur Orlando fought for three days straight until they both fell.[8]


  1. 1.0 1.1 In an interview regarding Trails of Cold Steel II, Toshihiro Kondo has said that Arianrhod and McBurn are approximately equal in strength
  2. In a post-Sen no Kiseki III interview, Toshihiro Kondo states that Sharon Kreuger is stronger than both Campanella and Joshua Bright.[11]


  1. Ao no Kiseki, Finale: "And Yet, Here We Are".
  2. Sen no Kiseki III, Chapter 4: "Glimmering Heimdallr".
  3. Sen no Kiseki III, Chapter 3: "The Pulse of Steel ~Profusion of the Sea Capital~".
  4. 4.0 4.1 4.2 When asked who is the strongest among Cassius Bright, Leonhardt and Arios MacLaine, Toshihiro Kondo answered that Cassius is stronger than the two combined.
  5. 5.0 5.1 5.2 When asked whether the Divine Blades Cassius Bright and Arios MacLaine or Blademaster Victor S. Arseid is stronger, Toshihiro Kondo replied that their swordmanship is equal, but that Victor appears to be stronger mentally because his independent and neutral perspective on ruling his viscounty is unique among the nobility. Arios may appear mentally strong, but has a weakness for his daughter.
  6. 6.0 6.1 Ao no Kiseki.
  7. Loewe Monogatari, supported by comments from Toshihiro Kondo, suggests that Leonhardt is not yet on the level of Arianrhod.
  8. Trails of Cold Steel, Chapter 4: "A Midsummer's Revels".
  9. Cassius is above Sigmund Orlando in terms of overall power but weaker when it comes to pure combat (though this is in part because he's not using a sword any more).
  10. Ao no Kiseki. Walter and Rixia Mao (as Yin) fought each other to a standstill once.
  11. Sen no Kiseki Magazine, Volume 2, p.43.
