7. Tiki the Dragon Scion
Tiki almost gets top-tier status on the strength of her solid offensive and defensive stats and the fact that she’s, you know, a divine dragon. But to be brutally honest, I’m just not that into her human form’s pandering cutsieness or how quickly she can be whittled down by long range units or a decent Lucina or Marth with their anti-dragon abilities. Though she does have access to a sweet area of effect fire ability, it’s got a punishing five turn cooldown, and a smart opponent will have picked her off long before she can take advantage of it. I feel bad bagging on a girl who comes from a race hunted to the brink of extinction, but hey, I’m not kicking her out of the hot tub. She just needs to wait in line.
