Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is a platform fighting game featuring Nickelodeon characters and stages from past and present. Some fan favorites include Helga Pataki from “Hey Arnold!” and Aang from “Avatar: The Last Airbender”. The initial roster of 20 characters has been expanded through DLC and added highly requested XJ9 aka Jenny from “My Life as a Teenage Robot” and Hugh Neutron from “Jimmy Neutron”.

While many see it as a love letter to fans and a good party game to button mash with, there is a competitive aspect to it. As such, some characters interact with the meta better than others or, simply, have a better kit than others. Perhaps your favorite allows for some easy wins. Maybe you have to struggle a bit more with them.

S-Tier

Toph

Rocko

Rock your opponent with these characters. While Rocko has come out the gate strong, Toph has only gotten stronger. She’s an annoying character that keeps people guessing and takes advantages of misreads. Rocko puts a lot on the screen that you have to take account of, allowing him to set up his game or get some damaging hits in.

A-Tier

Patrick

Zim

Danny Phantom

Spongebob

XJ9/Jenny

Some people like a bit of a struggle. All of these characters have strong tools, from Zim’s Gir projectile and wide range normals, to Patrick’s dash attack. Jenny is strong but just not as strong with a weakness being her simplistic approach, usually opting for a Nair. If the opponent can find a way around it, she may be in need of some repairs soon.

B-Tier

Sandy Cheeks

Hugh Neutron

Shredder

Powdered Toast Man

Catdog

Oblina

April

Nigel Thornberry

The meatiest tier and the last of the good characters. Sandy does a lot okay and very little well. She can force the opponent to play at a range she likes but it takes a bit of skill to do so. Catdog can be hard to navigate with their switching mechanic and it doesn’t help that they have some weak normals. April’s camera is still a problem for many characters in Brawl, but she doesn’t have much else to work with.

C-Tier

Reptar

Lucy Loud

Korra

Leonardo

Helga Pataki

Garfield

Prepare for a struggle as you’re going to be working for your wins. Characters like Korra and Helga have few tools that your opponent needs to worry about. Reptar is on the fringe of B thanks to his damage but his big body is a detriment.

D-Tier

Ren and Stimpy

Lincoln Loud

Michaelangelo

Abandon all hope ye who play these characters. Lincoln Loud has some interesting gadget play but, beyond that, it’s a struggle. Michaelangelo has been constantly reworked since his big nerf but still remains a bad character with no real gameplan for kills.

There’s rarely a character in a fighting game that can never win so, just know, that playing a C-tier character doesn’t mean you’ll automatically lose to an S-tier. You play against the player as much as the character…their character just makes it a bit easier.
