Here's a list of notable tanks in the action RPG mobile game: Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag. Now that they added a new event where tanks and healers can shine, this new list will show which units are good for mitigating damages.

Differences Between Tanks and Mitigators

   - Mitigators can handle more damages than regular tanks, especially when used against their counter elements. Mitigators can also solo, but regular tanks relies more on their teammates.
