As a substitute of doing one thing helpful with our time, we have ranked all of the Geralts we may consider. You recognize: Witcher 3 Geralt, guide Geralt, Polish TV sequence Geralt, Tub Geralt—the Geralts. It is not value pondering an excessive amount of about why we determined to do that, as a result of the reason being actually simply that somebody stated “let’s rank all of the Geralts” and nobody stated no earlier than it occurred. Except for myself, technicalrobo’s Geralt rating committee consists of:
- Jody Macgregor, Weekend Editor
- Lauren Aitken, Guides Editor
- Robert Jones, Journal Editor
- Ted Lichfield, Affiliate Editor
- Fraser Brown, On-line Editor
- Andy Chalk, Information Lead
To reach at this grasp tier record, I first requested every skilled to create their very own Geralt tier record, explaining their selections. I then in contrast their lists, thought of their arguments, and used the scientific “ehh, that appears about proper” technique to type the witchers from S-tier (the very best) to F-tier (barely even a Geralt).
With out additional ado, right here is our definitive Geralt tier record:
We did not have to elucidate the worth of this Geralt once we began posting him on Twitter a number of years in the past: It was intuitively understood then, and may stay so now. It is Geralt, and he is in a bathtub. What extra do you must know?
Witcher 3 Geralt (not in a bathtub)
All of us agreed that, even when he is not in a bathtub, The Witcher 3’s Geralt is a top-tier Geralt, even higher than the Geralt he is based mostly on. Andy known as him “mature” and “dignified,” and Jody stated he is voice actor Doug Cockle’s “greatest efficiency, coherent whether or not steered by the participant to be beneficiant and forgiving or a gruff haggler who cares just for Gwent.”
Good job, Witcher 3 Geralt: You are the very best Geralt, each out and in of the bathtub.
The Geralt that began all of it. “Headband wearer, thinker, man who likes to have his say each time the authorial voice takes a break from describing each close by lady’s boobs,” stated Jody.
Henry Cavill Geralt
A gruff, muscley softy with a wig that improves over time. “Toss him a coin, he was higher than you anticipated,” Andy stated.
Lauren Aitken’s Geralt Tattoo
Lauren was the one one to rank this majestic Geralt, who occurs to stay on Lauren.
“I obtained the calendar, thanks,” stated Lauren, who was additionally the one one to rank this Geralt. It’s a very correct cosplay.
Witcher 2 Geralt
I like this Geralt as a result of he seems imply. “In all probability the fiercest-looking Geralt,” stated Robert. “A correct weapon. However missing a bit in character at occasions.”
It is a Geralt we discovered within the picture gallery for a mod known as Finger Lickin’ Geraldo. We like him as a result of he is massive.
Soul Calibur 6 Geralt
Robert reckons that that is the “most good-looking Geralt,” and argues that he is a greater fighter than Witcher 3 Geralt, who tends to twirl a couple of bit an excessive amount of. Improved swordsmanship has earned him a good B grade.
Geralt from that Polish TV sequence
Jody thinks the Geralt who appeared in early-2000s Polish TV present Wiedźmin (which was additionally condensed right into a film) is underrated. He is “explicitly a youthful model of Geralt, solely beginning his profession, and with a bit extra idealism due to that,” Jody stated.
Jody additionally had reward for the present’s Jaskier, however we’re not score Jaskiers till somebody says in a gathering, “Let’s rank Jaskiers.”
Therapeutic massage therapist Geralt

♬ Holding out for a Hero (from “Footloose”) – Bonnie Tyler (opens in new tab)
This Geralt most likely would’ve ranked increased if any of us had personally acquired a Geralt therapeutic massage, however alas, we have now not skilled the agency however conscious contact of the witcher.
Witcher 1 Geralt
This Geralt actually examined my “ehh, that appears about proper” system. “So attractive I could not even persuade a woman to provide me classes within the elvish language with out the sport instantly chopping to an ungainly intercourse scene,” stated Jody, who put Witcher 1 Geralt within the D-tier (you simply cannot escape his horniness). Andy, nonetheless, put this Geralt within the A-tier for the exact same purpose, noting solely that he is a “continuous intercourse machine.” Two others gave this Geralt a B.
Ultimately, I concluded that, ehh, C-tier appears about proper for this Geralt, who hadn’t mastered facial expressions but.
Gewalf of Wivia
Geralt earns his knighthood as Gewalf of Wivia in Gwent spin-off Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. An A-tier second, however Geralt is barely within the recreation for about 5 minutes, dragging this cameo right down to C-tier.
Nobody had a robust opinion about this Geralt, so I put him right here within the C-tier: a passing grade with no robust emotions for or towards. It is the 7 out of 10 of tiers.
“He chunky,” stated Ted, who additionally praised this Geralt for his PS1 horror recreation vibes.
This big-headed figurine borrows some S-tier glory by reworking into Tub Geralt.
Monster Hunter Geralt
Robert known as this Geralt “Chipmunk Geralt” due to his vast jaw. He isn’t in any other case very notable since he solely sticks round for one hunt, however he’s voiced by Doug Cockle, which helps.
Regardless of the face being “barely off,” Robert likes this “trustworthy and powerful” Geralt and positioned him within the B-tier. Lauren, nonetheless, gave this Geralt’s wonky face a D, and Lauren has a Geralt tattoo, so I am going along with her.
Misplaced Ark Geralt
“It is not his fault Misplaced Ark’s Witcher crossover was underwhelming, however I nonetheless cannot even have a look at him,” lamented Jody.
He seems like Geralt, however he is obtained that plastic pores and skin all Fortnite characters have. Easy Geralt simply does not do it for us like Huge Geralt does.
Cannot even pose him. Ineffective.
“Gerlat” is a misspelling of “Geralt” that I ceaselessly kind by chance. I did it a number of occasions whereas engaged on this text, and I do it so typically that he is grow to be a definite kind of off-brand Geralt to me. The picture above is a drawing I did of what I feel Gerlat seems like.
Liam Hemsworth Geralt
That is an unproven Geralt and thus he can’t be ranked but. His tier shall be decided after he takes over for Henry Cavill, if any of us nonetheless keep in mind that we made this record.
Gerald of the Riviera
A man named Gerald seems in a recreation known as Arcade Paradise as your dad, and he is within the Riviera. Is he really a Geralt? He’s voiced by Doug Cockle, which is a really Geralt-like factor to be, however Geralt is from Rivia, not the Riviera, so I will say no. Does it make sense that I ranked a typo, however not this? I will say… sure. It is sensible, and is not simply because somebody talked about this recreation after I would already settled on 22 Geralts.
