The Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl tier list of best characters will be subjective based on your personal playing style and preference, but we can definitely steer you in the right direction. Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl hasn’t been out long, but a competitive scene is already making its way out of the woodwork. It’s clear that many are already attached to their childhood faves, this time as seasoned fighters, but who are the best All-Star Brawl characters? Here’s our Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl tier list of characters, from best to worst.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawn Character Tier List - S-Tier

Oblina & CatDog - These two characters are featured in the same entry as they’re both S tier characters for the same reasons. They’re both incredibly flexible characters, with some great movement skills, and they remain agile without losing any damage output. They’re the game’s ultimate all-rounders, and if you’re struggling to know where to start with the game, these two are the best shout.

Sandy - Sandy currently has an infinite combo under her belt, and if you can master it, it’ll be to the detriment of your foes. Who knows if she’ll last as an A-tier character when it gets patched out, but until it is, get to manipulating it! Your enemies will hate you, but you’ll be flying too high to notice.

Aang - Would you believe that Aang is one of the game’s most agile fighters? It’s pretty thematically in keeping with him, and it does his character a treat. Master his movement, and you’ll be able to run rings around your foes.

Reptar - Consider Reptar as this game’s Bowser - a big, heavy character that makes up for it with sheer heft. He’s tough to shift, and has a brutal down-special that can wreak havoc on your foes. If you can deal with a tank character, Reptar will treat you well.

April O’Neil - Let’s make this clear - April is not beginner-friendly. Her move-set is incredibly complex, relying on a rating system to dish out most of her damage. But if you can put her to good use, and learn her tough moves, it will seriously pay off.

Leo - Our first Turtle, Leo has a stellar recovery move and some strong air dashes to keep his massive agility up. The least gimmicky fighter in the game and the most straightforward, Leo is a great pick if you’re getting started or if you’re tens of hours in already.

Lincoln Loud - Lincoln might be tough to use, but he has plenty of great applications. He’s got big potential with a very tech-heavy moveset, but it’s going to take some time getting used to how he plays. If you’re getting serious about the game, you could make him a great fighter.

Lucy Loud - The second rep for The Loud House, Lucy has a creative and interesting moveset with some better balance than other slow characters. She seriously dishes out damage, and if you can put up with her sluggishness, she’ll be a great character to take to the top of the leaderboard.

Powdered Toastman - Powdered Toastman is a powerhouse that makes up for his bland moveset with some big damage output. He sits in the B-tier simply as he’s so easy to launch, but he can dish it out in equal measure.

Spongebob - Here he is. Obviously, Spongebob is the first pick for many, and as such, he’s a well-rounded character - but that’s all he is. He’s easy to learn and can treat you well upon mastery, but he’s not a particularly heavy hitter either. Use him to learn the game rather than relying on him to take you to the top of the leaderboards.

Helga - Helga might have a great projectile that could help to level the playing field from a mid-distance, but she’s a generally uninteresting character either way. You could do worse, but you could certainly do better.

Nigel Thornberry - Big Nige is in this game because he’s become a meme in recent years, and as such, he’s not exactly perfect in a fight. He’s creative, but his recovery will fail you almost every time and doesn’t have many moves that’ll send foes soaring. Worth a miss, unless you fancy a laugh.

Michelangelo - He might be a Ninja Turtle, but Mikey is instantly outclassed by his TMNT compatriots. He can hold his own, but there’s not much about him that makes him special, or even worth choosing in a fight at all. And with a move set so bog-standard, you’d be better off picking a character with a smaller hitbox.

Danny Phantom - Danny might be a character you wanted to main just from seeing the trailer, but his recovery is so poor he becomes practically obsolete. He can throw out some mean punches, but if you get sent off the stage, you’re done for unless you’re completely ready for it.

Zim - The Invader Zim title character has some good range, but his projectiles are incredibly situational and doesn’t actually have much use outside of it. He doesn’t hit particularly hard either, and he’s unlikely to have great competitive applications.

Korra - Korra doesn’t have an awful lot of competitive viability, with her uncharacteristically slow movement. She can dish out a punch and if she can catch you off guard with a high percentage you’ll be off the stage in no time, but her speed seriously drags her down.

Patrick - Patrick is one of the most hated characters in the game so far, and for good reason. He’s a character who is lumbering and slow, with not enough power behind his punches to make up for it. He’s vulnerable at the best of times, and can’t make a good attack to save his life. Avoid at all costs.

Toph - Toph, being an earth-bender and all, naturally has a moveset that relies an awful lot on staying on the platform. But, if you’re playing competitively, there’s every chance that your foe will be too focused on staying elevated, wave-dashing as they go - so you won’t have much chance to do meaningful damage, and will likely be left pretty vulnerable.

Ren & Stimpy - Ren & Stimpy are the only examples of playing as two different characters as one (a la Ice Climbers), but this very fact weighs them down. They’re not much fun to play, and packed with a useless counter and some pretty bland special moves, they’re not worth a pick.

That's our tier list of fighters in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl - be annoyed at us all you like for not including your main in S-tier, but things may change when a true competitive scene arrives to prove exactly what these characters can do. And chances are, if you're already a CatDog main, you'll be more ready than most.
