The Foamstars character list gives you plenty of options for how you want to play. Each of the Foamstars you can play as has their own look and their own set of abilities they bring to the party.

There are six characters available from the start, and two that must be unlocked or purchased to use in the game. Here's the full list of characters, what they do, and how to get those two extra Foamstars.

Full character list

The eight playable characters in Foamstars are:

  • Soa
  • Tonix
  • Jet Justice
  • Penny Gwyn
  • Race Breaker
  • The Baristador
  • Mel T

All but the last two characters on that list are available from the start. The Baristador is unlocked by reaching player level 3, whereas Mel T is part of the battle pass and must be purchased.

Character abilities

Each character has a unique weapon that shoots foam its own way, two active abilities, and one ultimate ability. Those are as follows:

Character Ability 1 Ability 2 Ultimate
