Rankers are the top strongest players in Lucid Adventure.

For the corresponding category, see here.


Rankers were previously given their rank by Giga scouts, but after the death of God of Combat,[2] the ranking system was re-established by Lucid Ball.[3]

Lucid Ball ranks each user based on the power of the world itself, with the limit set by Hardcore Leveling Warrior, who had reached the humanly limit in the past when he was the Ranked the No.1 Player.[3]

Rankers became so popular that they shoot commercials like celebrities and are even used on products such as Ranker Milk.[4]

Due to their popularity, information of Rankers abilities can be found on the internet, ensuring their weaknesses can be known by everyone[5]

High Rankers are able to use combo skills that are taxing to other users like they are nothing.[6]

Giga Ranking System


Rankers were named during the war against Nightmare. They were first chosen based on the information Giga's Scouts had, which was then leaked to the public. It became a power ranking.[2]

Giga made it a standard and created a ranking system by naming the strongest 100 players whether they were from Giga or Not.[2]

After the ranking system got re-established by Lucid Balls, Giga's Ranking System stopped being used.

Known Rankers

These were the players that were officially ranked by Giga Scouts.

Lucid Ball Ranking System


Rank No.1 Hardcore Leveling Warrior...The Ranking System 'Limit'

After the God of Combat died, the ranking system was re-established by Lucid Balls that emerged when the divine power of the Gods was absorbed into the world.[3]

Lucid Ball ranks each user based on the power of the world itself, with the limit set by Hardcore Leveling Warrior, who had reached the humanly limit in the past when he was the Rank No.1 Player.[3]

Based on the rankings, it continues the 'battle' system that matched users based on their ranks. This was very different from the past standards set by 'Giga', thus creating a major shift in overall rankings. This gave the rankers more freedom. Lucid Ball of the Rankers had special colours.[3]

Matching System

A Player has to actively enter the ranking system to take become a ranker. If a player wins consecutive ranked matches, they earn huge rewards. There is a matching system that searches for ranked players within the vicinity and it gives and estimated queue time.[12]

The Great War

The initiation of The Great War led to a change in the ranking system. Unlike before where players had to battle each other to improve their rankings, players could now only improve their rank based on how many points they gained from subjugating Nightmare. Just before the subjugation of Nightmare began, a few simple rules were added to the ranking system.[13]

  1. When a Named Nightmare is subjugated, that record will be announced to the whole world.[13]
  2. Territories regained from Nightmare will be taken into consideration and their portions will be awarded to the rankers.[13]
  3. 10x of Exp earned from subjugating Nightmare will be reflected in the rankings.[13]

Notes & Trivia

  • The ranking systems only applies to the users. There are NPC such as Heart Heater, The Dragons of Light and Darkness, The 4 Gods and other named monsters that transcend the power of ranked players.
  • Both the Giga and Lucid Ball ranking systems are not always indicative of a players true power. Examples are given below.
    • Armes hid her true strength so she was never on Giga's ranker list. She was stronger than the then ranked no.3 The Best Swordsman.[16]
    • Despite not being a 'Lucid Ball' ranker, Sora defeated Apple, who is one of Giga's top rankers. Sora was not on the Lucid Ball Ranking System because she hadn't been engaging in ranked battles to climb up the ranks.
    • For the sake of secrecy, members of Giga's Special Investigation department are not allowed to be ranked and they do not usually get involved with combat in the open.[17]
  • It appears that when rankers logged into Lucid Adventure in Season 1, their rank appeared next to their name such as when Hardcore Leveling Warrior logged in in Episode 1. This appears to have changed with the new Lucid Ball System, as Dark's rank did not appear when he logged in as the Rank 3 in Season 2 Episode 1.
  • Curiously, the Rank No.3 seems to be the most popular rank used by the author in the series. At some point in time The Best Swordsman was Rank Rank No.3, Hardcore Leveling Warrior was Rank No.3, Light was estimated to be the Rank No.3 and Dark is the Rank No.3 in Season 2. It is unknown if that number has a hidden mystery behind it.
  • There seems to be some confusion as to The Best Swordsman's ranker status after he lost to Hardcore Leveling Warrior. The Best Swordsman was still a ranker but is presumed to be a non-ranker in season 1 because of Line Webtoon's poor translation. Coma said this to The Best Swordsman in Episode 172, "...요새 랭커질 안하더니, 감 다 죽었나보네요."; this is translated by Line Webtoon as "...after all those years of being unranked, you must've lost your touch."; The correct translation is ""You haven't been doing the act of a ranker lately, so I guess you weren't you weren't ready for that." Further confirmation that The Best Swordsman is still a ranker as Tempest confirms it when he was talking about conceptual magic in Episode 154. Open Your Mouth, Here Comes the Healing confirmed The Best Swordsman was a ranker in Episode 173 as she referred to both Coma and The best Swordsman as "These rankers...".
  • Unlike the Giga Scouts Ranking System, it appears that a Ranker is not restricted to just the 'Top 100' players anymore. Both Dumpling Prince and Cave referred to Dumpling Prince as a "Ranker" despite him being Rank 102.[14] It is possible that the term 'Top Ranker' is used for the top 100 players in order to distinguish them. This will be added to the 'Lucid Ball Ranking System' above when more information is revealed.
    • Kelea was to have the ability to match a Ranker by Dark in Season 2 Episode 7. This insinuates that Rankers are the 'Top 100 Players'.
    • Apple is implied to be a ranker by Sua Han in Season 2 Episode 11. Due to the issue stated in the above bullet point, it is unclear if she is actually a 'Top 100' Ranker, but just for the sake of consistency, this wiki has assumed that she is a 'Top 100' player. When her rank is confirmed, the Ranker list will be updated. This is the same issue with Sun Wukong, who is revealed to be a Ranker by Tempest in Season 2 Episode 13.
  • Jezeri is called a 'Giga Ranker' in Season 2 Episode 22. It is unclear if this is based off 'Giga's Ranking System' or ' Lucid Ball Ranking System'. For this reason, Jezeri has been left off both ranking systems and will be correctly allocated when more information is revealed by the author.
  • In Season 2 Episode 59, Nightmare Akira asked "Rankers, you're talking about the 20 strongest people?". By the storyline, this would be incorrect as the Rankers refer to the players within the system and goes as far as 2000+. Presumably he meant that both Coma and Elena were in top 20 in the rankings.
