This guide will list all the best characters in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl through several tiers. It’s can be hard to pinpoint which character is the best in the game due to the variety of moves, but this list should help you make the choice quicker.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl: S-Tier Characters

Nigel Thornberry

This friendly-looking zoologist is actually the most dangerous character in the game due to his unique moves and mobility features.

His best move is The Worm that dodges practically anything thrown at you by the enemies, including projectiles. It can also serve as a reliable combo breaker.

You can also just outright block out your enemies with the Falcon Dive move, or his Woodpecker jump. While his infamous combo of What’s Over There and Flick moves is known for landing powerful KOs every time.

At the same time, it is almost impossible to KO Nigel himself due to his heavyweight build and overall survivability.


Unpredictable and flexible would be the best two words describing this unique dual-character in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. They also has a few distinctive advantages that make them one of the best current brawlers in the game.

Cat covers a wide area with their moves, such as Feline Fist and Double Dance.

Dog has a fun projectile called Bone Boomerang that goes back and forth, hitting opponents more than once. The two sides make for some interesting versatility.

Lastly, you can quickly switch between Cat and Dog, leaving your opponents in a vulnerable position of guessing which side to fight. While they’re distracted, you can deal unexpected damage.

A-Tier Characters

April O’Neil

April has a special gauge called Ratings Meter that allows her to deal extra damage to her opponents.

There are many techniques how she can fill this meter up, but the best one can be achieved with the On The Air move. Once her meter is full, the amount of damage she can produce is outright bonkers.

She also has one of the better early moves called Sliding Kick, which can help set her up in the beginning of the fights.

Although her Ratings Meter offers a potentially very satisfying strategy, it may also limit many of her other abilities.

Helga Pataki

Helga can be slow and clumsy at times, but when her moves connect, they deal so much damage that you forget about those few drawbacks in an instant.

Her best move is Approaching Uppercut that is both hard-hitting and completely unexpected due to the shifting nature of the move itself. Her best counterattack move is Homerun.

With all that said, Helga does have one significant drawback: her low survivability. You really need to pay a lot of attention to her defensive moves.


This is one of the most unusual characters in the game, and that actually gives her an advantage above many others.

Her Garbage Breath ability will keep your opponents at bay. If they decide to get close to Oblina, this thing will zone them out and send a few projectiles to finish the job.

Although Oblina is a relatively small in size, she can benefit from this, as her hitboxes are quite hard to target. If you’ll be moving a lot using such moves like Eye Lift and Spin Out, it would be almost impossible to deal her even a single hit.

B-Tier Characters


Speed is a tricky thing to master in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, but if you do, then it’s going to be a lot of fun for you, although not for your opponents.

Aang can be a great character to learn how to control the speed of movement and take advantage of it both in the air, using his Air Glide ability, and on the ground, using his Air Ball move.

Even if you master only these two moves, the opponents will have a heck of a time time trying to reach you.


Korra from The Last Airbender has one of the most unique set of moves in the game.

You’d be hard pressed two find two similar moves in the Korra’s arsenal, as all her abilities create variations that can be easily used for different combos.

For example, you can double tap her Uppercut attack to produce extra damage; or you could use her Axe Kick while holding the attack button, creating an autocombo.

You can try all kinds of things with Korra, which makes her a really fun character to play with.

Those are the best characters in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. If this article helped you choose the best fighter in the game, then be sure to share with your friends online!
