Newcomers like the blood samurai Nagoriyuku and Giovanna join fan favorites like Ky Kiske and Sol Badguy. Here is a list of all characters in the Guilty Gear Strive roster.

The game’s roster is getting updated with new characters via Season Pass — and players who own the pass get immediate access to them. Additionally, players have the option to purchase DLC fighters individually. With over 20 fighters and more being added over time, Guilty Gear Strive has something to offer to new players and veterans alike.

  • Baiken (balance)
  • Bridget (balance)
  • Goldlewis (power)
  • Happy Chaos (shooting)
  • Jack-O’ (technical)
  • Sin (rush)
  • Testament (balance)

Guilty Gear Strive’s roster continues to grow, and despite missing some fan favorites, the revamped classic characters mesh well with Strive’s gameplay design. Characters categorized as balance are decent all-around fighters and provide a good entry point for new players. Characters labeled under the technical label should be reserved for experienced players, as they’re packed with complex techniques and gameplay concepts.
