    Liar Game Tier

    Basically, i thought itd be fun to rank the LG characters based on their overall abilities and performances thus far. This is how I would rank them...

    High Tier

    Akiyama
    Yokoya
    Samue

    Basically, the leaders of the game thus far. They hold the greatest leadership and intelligence abilities. Akiyama, imo, is the greatest as he has trumped them both. Then Yokoya for more feats and for trumping Samue. Also, Akiyama has more physical feats than Yokoya and Samue put together. These three will now be referred to as the Big 3 throughout the rest of the post.

    Middle Tier

    Nao Kanzaki
    Fukunaga
    Yokoya's LG Agent (woman with sunglasses and mouthpiece even though she's not a player)
    Dynamic Acuity Guy from 17Card Poker (briefly dominated Akiyama)
    Player 15

    Nao has always been essential to Akiyama's victories so i ranked her even higher than Fukunaga, whose physical ability is #1 in this game. Fukunaga is wily; if not for the Big 3, she would be the one dominating the game. 15 isn't very special, but amongst the fodder, i found him to be the greatest assest to Akiyama.

    Low Tier

    Akagi (for being one of the three essential players in Yokoya's Contraband)
    Long-Haired Guy from Contraband (one of three traitors with Akagi, he made some insightful comments)
    800 Year Old One (Office Lady, tricked Forelock i think)
    Baldy (pretty devious, though foolish as well...)
    Nao's Teacher

    Fodder Tier
    rest

    I'm interested in how everyone else's tier look like too ^_^
    P.S. You can include any and all characters, from the host Leonira to the ex-teacher to the enigmatic Player 15.

    I'd place fukanaga above nao but below the top tier, basically a tier of his own. He is very good at his thing but generally is a step before akiyama and yokoya... On the other hand he has wits and can get a great understanding of games in an instant, something nao can't do. Nao is a strong player not because she can fugure out games or because her plans are world class but because she can get players from other teams to trust her because she indeed is generally being honest.

    Re: Liar Game Tier

    That's true, but i put her lower because she is less essential to Akiyama

    Whats your list?

    Re: Liar Game Tier

    Not sure how his being essential to akiyama would be all that relevant. I think the tiers should be based on individual capacities rather than that lol. Not to mention he was in another group when the virus outbreak game was played and did not have a chance to participate in this round. In that sense, its not like he is not useful to akiyama but rather his chance to be useful to akiyama this round were not all that great. Recall the revival round, did he not completely dominate his portion of the game? Fukanaga has it in him to instinctively understand the essence of a game, to know what it really is about. He can read the game 1 step ahead of the rest and act very well based on that. The difference between him and akiyama/yokoya is that those two can not only get a quick understanding of the essence of a game but also they can see up to two or three steps ahead which results in the two of them being 1 or 2 steps ahead from fukanaga.

    My list would not be all that different... Fukanaga by himself in between the top and middle tier would be my main change. Other than that perhaps I'd place nao on a slightly lower tier. She has improved but her contributions to the team are not precisely planned, she just has it in her to gain the trust of the people around her and have them join her which basically turns the tide in her favor. I am not saying that is not important, it actually is extremely important. I just think overall she relies to heavily on akiyama and is not quite there in understanding the flow of a game.

    Re: Liar Game Tier

    Not sure, if you want to know this, but in LG: Invitation there're approximate probabilities of winning in the end (i.e. getting the Liar King title) for each of the 4 main characters. Under spoiler tag, just to be safe.

    Liar Game: invitation - it's a kind of a statistics book for Liar Game; there're character profiles, round summaries and various other statistics, including the mentioned above. I own a copy.

    Re: Liar Game Tier

    I think Fukunaga is between top-tier...and I thought samue was holding his own against the two leaders, but I was disappointed in him...so Akiyama and Yokoya are the top-tier and maybe some LG higherups...
    Then Fukunaga Samue and Samue's group in mid-tier
    I don't know about the rest

    Nao has unlimited potential...she is becoming smarter, and that's Akiyama's influence, but she believes in herself and that's good...she will be in top tier I guess, maybe an inch below Yokoya and Akiyama...that's why I wouldn't put her in any category yet
