Unfortunately.... none of that actually makes him the strongest character. Yes, we beat Caitiff, but only because our dragon was pumped up on Doom steroids at the time. Yes, we beat the SMUDD, but like you said, that was only because we struck in exactly the ONE spot where he could be truly damaged. Surviving the attack from the SMUDD doesn't really mean anything either, as the SMUDD didn't see him as a threat, and for good reason. He wasn't one. Why would he need to waste energy on killing Sepulchure, when he wasn't a threat? Us never actually defeating him doesn't mean he's the strongest either. It just means that we've never beaten him in a fight. We never beat Faust in a fight either(in fact, in that battle, it actually looked to me like he was wiining). Does that mean Faust is the strongest character too?
there was not a single person who could save it - except for Sepulchure, under the guise of Amadeus.
And Artix with his improvised spell, as confirmed by Word of God when Dove described what would have happened if we lost the Black Winter war(it would have cured our dragon, just not completely). Seppydeus just happened to be more efficient.
He doesn't have the NBOD? Didn't seem to stop him from controlling Doom and absorbing it from our dragon to the extent that it was completely purified.
That doesn't equate to being strong, though. Also, it wasn't just the NBoD that he lost. It was a large majority of his strength and power that he had as a doomknight.
The biggest problem, though, is that Wargoth is also on the Tier List. Someone who can destroy planets. Sepulchure was never anywhere NEAR that powerful. In fact, only two other characters have ever been displayed to be that powerful. The SMUDD, who was actually shown to be stronger than that, as he could devour the sun and stars, and envelop all of Lore in darkness(which, at that point, was effectively just him), and our dragon. However, our dragon has only ever shown that much power on two temporary occasions. The first was when they were temporarily empowered by the full might of the ultimate bacon orb, at which point they were actually capable of contenting with the SMUDD(who really was only able to survive our attacks thanks to its absurd level of regeneration thanks to absorbing everything darkness into it at a constant rate), and the second time when it had become SMUDD 2.0 thanks to Caitiff. So yes, while Seppy could, and probably should, be promoted to Top Tier, he'd be on the low end of it, simply for being stronger than our dragon was in Book 1 when they aren't in World Destroyer mode. In fact, as our dragon is now, they'd actually probably be as strong as, or stronger than, Book 1 Seppy, thanks to the permanently lingering effects of attuning to the Ultimate Bacon Orb, and the fact that dragons naturally grow stronger as they age(i'm assuming this is the case in DF, as it is in basically every fantasy involving dragons ever, especially D&D, which Dragonfable and everything AE is influenced by).
