In Xenoblade Chronicles 3, every character has specific skills and you need to take advantage of both their Combat Role and class to play effectively. Attackers hit enemies hard but will get targeted in return. Defenders can withstand several blows and make enemies focus on them. Meanwhile, Healers can provide stat buffs, replenish health points, or revive allies.

There are six main characters total that you will need to strategically use in battle, but you can also recruit several other heroes who can fight alongside you. Only one hero can be assigned at a time as your seventh team member, so you’ll want to understand their skillset to see if it fits the way you play. We’ll go over all Xenoblade Chronicles 3 characters and heroes along with their battle styles.
