Smite is a popular MOBA esports game with more than 120 characters and a unique approach to the MOBA genre. For starters, it is played in third-person view and in the traditional isometric bird’s eye view that is seen in League of Legends, Dota 2, and other MOBA games. In this guide, we’ll take a look at all the Smite characters and their abilities, as well as which characters are currently the strongest and most popular.

Who Are the Smite Characters?

The player-controlled characters in Smite are actually Gods from a wide range of historical Pantheons. This is one of the main appeals of Smite as a game; technically, not a single character is a work of fiction, which is almost always the case in esports games.

The Gods are divided into 16 Pantheons from various cultures and countries, and each has its own set of unique abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. The Gods themselves are further organised into five primary archetypes: Guardians (tanks, melee supports, and initiators), Hunters (fighters and ranged carries), Assassins (gankers and melee junglers), Warriors (melee bruisers), and Mages (ranged ability users and ranged supports).

The main premise of the game is fairly similar to how other MOBAs play, but there are certain intricacies that you can only learn by playing it yourself or watching live streams of esports tournaments.

How Many Smite Characters Are There?

As of November 2022, there are currently 123 Smite characters in the game. The developers release around six new characters each year, so by the end of 2023, the game will most likely have 129 playable characters. It’s worth noting that this frequency of releasing new characters is on par with what we see in other MOBAs and esports games.

Below, we provide the full breakdown of which characters belong to which Pantheons and the names of their abilities.

*If you want to learn more about these characters, visit the official Smite website for more information.

**Some characters can switch between stances or switch their current active skillset. These characters have more than 5 abilities. We’ve described these as A1a, A1b, A1c (as an example).

How To Unlock Smite Characters

There are three primary methods of unlocking Smite characters:

  1. Playing the game – By playing the game and earning experience, the player can unlock characters when they accumulate Favor (an in-game currency).
  2. Using Gems – Gems are obtained by paying a certain amount of real-life money. This method doesn’t require you to play the game and instead, you can pay for a certain amount of Gems and use them to unlock new characters.
  3. Buying the Ultimate God Pack – While this is the most expensive option, it unlocks all past, present, and future Gods, meaning you’ll be able to just enjoy the game, without having to think about earning Favor.

Best Smite Characters at the Moment

The newest character has just recently been released (Maui) so we don’t really have a lot of information on how the characters compare against each other at the moment. On top of that, quite a lot of changes were introduced in patch 9.10 that will definitely shake up the strength of most of the characters.

Still, the following Reddit thread does give important insight into what the community thinks, even if it’s for the last patch. If you’re planning on betting on Smite, then it’s best to wait and see how the newest patch changes things because your bets might be based on expired information – plus, you wouldn’t want to waste your betting bonus by rushing your bets!
