Here’s a rundown of all the Seiken Densetsu 3 Kevin Classes:
Grappler – Seiken Densetsu 3 Kevin Classes
Grappler is Kevin’s base class, and as far as base classes go, it’s honestly probably the best one. With the exception of Angela and Charlotte, base classes can only physically attack and, since Kevin is the best physical attacker by far, his base class is also the best at that. He has high attack, hits twice and turns into a Werewolf at night for a big damage bonus.

Bashkar (Dark) – Seiken Densetsu 3 Kevin Classes
Bashkar is the first dark option when it comes to classes for Kevin in Trials of Mana. It’s basically a standard upgrade to the Grappler class. It still doesn’t get any spells or utility outside hitting things, but it remains the strongest contender for straight physical damage.
STR 16, DEX 15, CON 18, INT 14, PIE 13, LUC 13
Monk (Light) – Seiken Densetsu 3 Kevin Classes
Monk is Kevin’s first light side class option. It gets a single target Heal Light spell, which can come in handy, and he also gains the Pressure Point skill. Pressure Point is not… particularly useful. Most likely you’ll only use it if you find yourself in a boss battle accidentally during the day. It has a pretty long cast time so, handy tip, if you cast it, then open the menu and wait, you can have it go off more quickly because a glitch allows cast time to keep going even when the game is paused.
STR 15, DEX 14, CON 18, INT 13, PIE 14, LUC 14
Heal Light, Pressure Point
Dervish (Dark-Dark) – Seiken Densetsu 3 Kevin Classes
Dervish is the Dark-Dark option among the Kevin classes in Trials of Mana. It learns Moon Saber, which grants the target Moon-elemental damage (pretty useless in general, except against one very easy boss), and lifesteal (pretty useful). Because Moon Saber has some nice utility, you may want to go with Dervish. The problem is, if you went Dark Side Kevin, you want the strongest physical attacker, and if you wanted a hybrid healer Kevin, you should have gone Light Side Kevin. So Dervish is in a weird spot here. You’re only giving up a little power compared to Death Hand in exchange for Moon Saber, so it’s up to you.
STR 18, DEX 17, CON 22, INT 17, PIE 16, LUC 16
Death Hand (Dark-Light) – Seiken Densetsu 3 Kevin Classes
Death Hand gets a spell called Energy Ball, which has a long cast time and does nothing. Other than that, who cares, Death Hand is stupid strong and hits like a dump truck. Physically, it’s the strongest class in the game by a huge amount. Nothing even comes close, except Kevin’s other classes. If Death Hand is supported with Stat Ups/Stat Downs/Elemental Swords, it’s a one-man wrecking crew. It tends to be a very popular option when it comes to classes for Kevin in Trials of Mana.
STR 19, DEX 18, CON 22, INT 16, PIE 15, LUC 15
Warrior Monk (Light-Dark) – Seiken Densetsu 3 Kevin Classes
Warrior Monk is Kevin’s Light-Dark option, and it gains access to multi-target Heal Light. It’s weaker physically than Kevin’s other classes, but it’s still a powerhouse that’s physically stronger than any other character on your team. It also gains access to Leaf Saber, a spell that allows physical attacks to restore MP, which is pretty much only useful on Angela. In general, I’d say this is the best class for Kevin if your team needs a healer.
STR 17, DEX 16, CON 22, INT 16, PIE 16, LUC 17
Heal Light*, Leaf Saber
God Hand (Light-Light) – Seiken Densetsu 3 Kevin Classes
Kevin’s Light-Light option, God Hand, allows him to cast Aura Wave, which fills the tech gauge for any ally. This is actually a great skill. Additionally, God Hand boasts very high attack power. My personal opinion is that if you’ve gone Light Side Kevin, you did it because you need a healer, which Warrior Monk is preferred for. God Hand sort of splits the difference. It’s not the strongest, it’s not the best healer, it’s somewhere in the middle.
STR 18, DEX 17, CON 22, INT 15, PIE 17, LUC 16
Conclusion – Seiken Densetsu 3 Kevin Classes
When it comes to picking from the final classes for Kevin in Seiken Densetsu 3, you’re basically deciding between attack power, healing and utility. Death Hand is hands down the highest attack power. Warrior Monk is hands down the best healer. Godhand and Dervish are both in between, with the difference being Aura Wave vs. Moon Saber. In my opinion, the choice is mainly between Death Hand and Warrior Monk and should be based on this: Does your team need a healer? If yes, then Warrior Monk. If no, then Death Hand.
Trials of Mana has a remake coming out and if you preorder now, you’ll get the Rabite Adornment DLC, which increases XP after each fight until level 10.
