With soo many heroes - new events and HOTM, who are the top 5 in each color?

With soo many heroes - new events and HOTM, who are the top 5 in each color?

That is one complicated thing to determine. A ton of factors need to be considered such as tanking flanking and wing roles, skill damage, support utility, etc. However, there is an existing thread on the best classes to emblem (not updated though):


Obligatory who you have and how you play preempt.

…and since yellow and purple are the source of my power and fascination.

There is (obviously) no objective answer to this, and ultimately varies on so many levels, but I’ll go ahead and take a shot in the dark based on my own 2¢ ~ (no one else’s)

Firstly to add: It’s incredibly difficult to quantify, and narrow down these heroes, into a single “top 5” - as well as putting em in chronological order based on superiority; some of these I could go back and forth on for hours. However, since I’m incredibly bored atm, I’m gonna give it a try anyway :sweat_smile:

(Btw - costume means either costume or costume bonus (ie includes the boosted stats). Why normal S1 are always rated lower, despite some having better SS than their costumed counter-parts.)

Couldn’t help but list everyone :sweat_smile: Every hero has its uses, so hard leaving anyone out for good. Although, I did add a “#6-18” category, as there are plenty of great heroes outside of “Top 5” that deserve some recognition. Even a few in the “didn’t make the cut” are still very worthy of 4* mats.

…so yeah, definitely subjective - meaning I could be way off-base from reality over that alone; ah well… I had fun :relaxed:


Nice rundown @RandaPandah

I’m much more simple LOL. The five best heroes per color are the five best ones I have per color. The rest are just no good. Nope, just horrible :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


I’ll be releasing this very information across 5 videos in the next few weeks. Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss it.


The obvious caveats aside (it depends on the situation and game mode and the heroes you have around them, etc.), I’d say the most valuable are…

Black Knight

Fineas Fogg
Mother North



Drake Fong


I’m quite sure you mean Garnet.

Yes. Thanks!


That’s hurt :rofl:


A lot depends on what your playstyle is, what heroes you have, what heroes you have to counter opponent heroes …

I have an overabundance of snipers and healers on my bench, which influences my playstyle. Yet my best heroes include Isarnia and Elena.

And … does it really matter who the best top five heroes overall are if you don’t have them?


Jade is top of the pops in all colors. She’s just that powerful :roll_eyes:


This list highlights how much better purple is than yellow. Drake is number 2 for yellow. Dr Moreau (who is a BETTER Drake in all aspects) sits at number 9 for the purples.


Which might be why yellow got two 5* heroes this circus event and there wasn’t a single purple? On aggregate, purple may be better, but Gazelle and Malosi make yellow top heavy on offense, all other things considered.

I wish balance in color strength were the case… But I always thought it was because, Starfall is a Yellow event, while League of Villains was a Purple event. Villains got two Purple 5*s, but not a single Yellow.

This kinda goes hand in hand, so long as that’s the intention on the creative process, no?

And to make matters worse the purple salmon is swimming upstream.

Still waiting on a blue Guardian as well… :thinking:

every month they release a new batch of stronger heroes so trying to figure out who are the strongest is just time wasting.

This…the best heroes are the ones you have to gamble for next month.

Big if, I would say :stuck_out_tongue: balance in numbers is one thing, balance in strength is another

though there’s hope, considering we finally got a 3* Yellow healer in Candy…
