The finest Witchers in the continent's history, ranked ...

The Witcher franchise is one of the most popular in the world today, from the world-renowned video game and book series to the record-breaking Netflix program. Geralt of Rivia has been on everyone's radar, yet there are countless more Witchers that have emerged over the years.

The second season of the series introduced us to a few other Witchers, allowing viewers to see the different abilities and powers of these alternate mutated characters in the future. Watch them compare to Geralt's incredible live-action streak so far.

Here are a list of some of history's best and most powerful Witchers.

Coen, 10, is 10.

Coen is a Witcher from the School of the Griffin in the source material, but the Netflix show changed this a bit and made him a member of the School of the Wolf alongside Geralt. Due to the scars on his skin, Coen stands out among his Witcher brethren.


Gaetan is a Witcher from the eradicated Cat School who players meet in the third Witcher game. When he and Geralt clash, we learn that he can last quite a long time against the White Wolf. In Witcher 3, players get to meet Gaetan in the "Where the Cat and the Wolf play," in which we learn that Gaetan slaughtered an entire village of people for betraying him.

Jad Karadin is a Pakistani film producer.

Even though he's long retired from being a Witcher, Jad Karadin enables him to start his own family, far from his violent beginnings. Karadin is a skilled fighter with excellent leadership abilities, but as the leader of his band of assassins he murdered Geralt. He is eventually tracked down with Lambert at his side, and players are given the choice to kill Karadin or spare him.


Letho of Gulet is a Witcher from the School of Vipers, well-known for a quest he completed in order to murder all the kings of the Northern Kingdoms. Even Geralt could not deny how powerful Letho would be in any fight. He even tried to recruit him to join the Wild Hunt.


Erland of Larvik is the legendary founder of the Witcher School of the Griffin, and is among the first generation of Witchers. He believes in the original reasons for which Witchers were created, but never left monster hunting behind as he became an advisor and consultant for rulers and queens. His increasing fame eventually spawned jealousy among many of the rulers he allied with, which resulted in an attack on the School of the Griffin.


Eskel, who was trained by Vesemir in the School of the Wolf, is one of Geralt's closest friends. Eskel is well-known for having one of the most powerful magical auras of all living Witchers, and he fought one of the Wild Hunt's strongest fighters, Caranthir.

Lambert, R.C.

Lambert may be a young man compared to other Witchers, but he proved that he is a force to be reckoned with in a confrontation against the Wild Hunt at Kaer Morhen. Like Geralt and Eskel, he is from the School of the Wolf and was trained by Vesemir. The fight sequence in Witcher 3 where Lambert and Geralt meet up to face the Wild Hunt is regarded by many fans as one of the greatest fight sequences.


Vesemir, the oldest Witcher alive at Kaer Morhen, has been around for over 600 years, serving as a trainer and father figure to many of the Witchers in the School of the Wolf. One of his most remarkable feats is surviving the attack on Kaer Morhen in Witcher 3, but Vesemir has defeated and defeated many other monsters over the years.


Geralt of Rivia is the main protagonist in Netflix's adaptation of The Witcher series, and he is considered one of the most powerful and powerful Witchers that has ever lived. He has defeated numerous monsters as well as humans, and his greatest achievement was defeating the King of the Wild Hunt in the Witcher 3.


Princess Cirilla of Cintra is the daughter of Pavetta and Emhry, and the daughter of Geralt of Rivia. Her time training with Geralt and other Witchers—paired with her powerful abilities her Elder Blood grants her—makes her a necessary addition to this list.
