Name Starting Rarity Useful? Notes

Scarecrow

Scarecrow
★★★ She's free. Also she's kinda insane utility wise for what you get.

You get her just for unlocking SF Capture, which is good because you need a ringleader to make an effective SF echelon. Also makes her the only one you can get off her normal season. This is still good, because she's actually fuckin good for utility + has good combat stats, and because Executioner fucking sucks. Far from the strongest ringleader for combat, but she's serviceable enough to handle most enemies.

Overall: Surprisingly really good for general use. Synergizes well with chips that drive her into enemy territory and lets her capture areas there with Shadow Predator without having to bring a second echelon. Overall super good utility if you can get creative.

Executioner

Executioner
★★★ Not awful but easily outshined by later SF releases

Strictly speaking she isnt completely awful, but you should be glad Scarecrow is the free SF Ringleader.

Her skills are oriented towards damage, damage, and more damage, and dealing it in different ways. Unfortunately she gets the short end of the stick by being a melee unit with a -range skill, meaning it is entirely possible for some enemies to walk past her and she can't do anything about it (hope you have a good backline I guess).

Her real problem is Alchemist exists, and when she comes out, basically does her job but better, mostly by tanking almost anything (she can solo Yegor without player input just by outlasting him, which Executioner cant do). Also Hunter comes right after her, and hunter is legitimately a very good unit, which discourages rolling for her on her last weeks.

There's a joke her role is to run in and die, and.... yeah it's not entirely innaccurate. She will deal damage before she explodes though. Probably. As long as enemies dont walk around her instead.

Hunter

Hunter
★★★ Boss Killer Extraordinaire. Weak on fights with many enemies.

The strongest single-enemy killer in SF, get her if you can. If you want a boss dead, she can probably AFK solo it. Yes, she can 1v1 Yegor while you're jacking off to something else entirely. For this reason, her best buddies are Manticores - both for taking down pesky minor mobs with their powerful AoE attacks, and because of their skill synergy with her - their debuff works for her skills.

Intruder

Intruder
★★★ Crazy Dog Lady. YMMV. Niche uses vs. some specific encounters.

AKA Dogmom. The Crazy Dinergate lady. The weirdo. The Ringleader who gets her head blown off in the mango version of the game before she actually gets to do anything.

Her skills are focused on throwing wave after wave after wave of dinergates at people and somehow making it stick. Good for mass warfare, or overwhelming things that cant shoot very much and have no AoE attacks.

TBH I'm not convinced she is really worth the effort to train, but there's a certain boss in Mirror Stage EX that she trivializes, so if you're into raising an entire unit just to kill one specific enemy...

Destroyer

Destroyer
★★★ Anti-Area Specialist. Please don't expect her to do well vs. bosses.

SF's AoE specialist. Her skillset is simple: Shit explodes. Because explosions ignore armor, she does well vs clustered enemies, whether or not they're armored. What matters is if they're clustered together and don't move fast enough to get out of her attack range and smack her face before she can fire. Because of how explosions work, with each link tanking damage from a blast, she has immense firepower vs. anything with more than one link.

Pairs well with Manticores and Nemeums. You can argue Jaguars too, but YMMV.

Do note that she also has a use as a dragging unit if you use her via friend echelon due to her HOC mode.

Ouroboros

Ouroboros
★★★ Combat buffer with some map utility

She has map utility and can buff allies, rather than simply being overwhelmingly strong on her own. However, unlike the map utility things used by Agent or Scarecrow, she isn't so much going to let you control a map as much as let you buy time in case of nasties you can't deal with or something needs to be delayed (perhaps on a ranking map).

Alchemist

Alchemist
★★★ Can basically AFK most real bosses

Kind of a meme. A melee unit who, unlike executioner, is actually good at it. Basically, she has infinite shield that keeps stacking as long as she attacks. Most bosses are not meant to fight this sort of thing, so she basically can destroy Yegor with no player input outside of telling her to go attack him. She isn't invincible or invulnerable, and is particularly vulnerable to burst damage enemies (Hydras come to mind, or SWAP Jaegers), but basic enemy fire wont even phase her.

Another issue is that friendly SF aren't invulnerable to stun, and some enemies can stun her. When that happens, she goes down pretty hard because she can't replenish her defenses. Otherwise, her overwhelming defensive ability lets you faceroll most encounters.
