What exactly makes a character strong in Arknights, and how would it land in the S tier?
In order for a character to be top tier, it should be able to clear out enemies on the battlefield fast enough or to have potent single target damage in order to kill upcoming bosses. That, along with a good synergy within the team, makes for a top tier character.
