Disney Sorcerer’s Arena - The Best Characters in the Game

One of the best parts of Disney Sorcerer’s Arena is the wide variety of heroes that all players can unlock, and all of which are based on our favorite animated characters of our childhoods. From the careless sorcerer’s apprentice Mickey, the curious little mermaid Ariel, and the gentle monster Sulley, to the evil Captain Hook, the powerful Hercules, and the popular queen Elsa, among many others, you can find countless characters in this game.
However, despite the fact that it might be tempting to create teams exclusively with your favorite Disney characters, this is not always the right choice, particularly because every hero has their own unique sets of stats and skills, which do not always pair well with certain characters. For example, having a team of exclusively offensive heroes is a recipe for disaster since you’ll have no reliable means of healing yourself, and will be very vulnerable to teams that are rocking a better strategy. On the flipside, having a balanced team with a tank, a healer, and a few DPS is much better and will allow you to face most of the challenges without having to alter your formation.
With that being said, there are lots of characters for every role in Disney Sorcerer’s Arena, and choosing the best ones can be a bit complicated. For this reason, we’ve created this guide where you’ll find a convenient list with the best characters in the game.
Best Offense Heroes
The characters in this role are tasked with doing the most damage in as little time as possible. Their skills are usually strong direct damage attacks, though they can also inflict debuffs and debilitate the enemy on occasions, or perhaps even buff their allies.
The best heroes in this category include the following:
This little pipsqueak specializes in extremely fast and powerful attacks, which can contribute to generating charges that he can use for unleashing crushing blows that can instantly defeat most enemies. Both his basic attack as well as his first special move generate these charges, while the second special attack can use up these charges to attack the entire enemy team.
However, one of the most interesting aspects of Dash is that, thanks to his passive skill, this character gains evasion and speed for every charge he has, so there’s always an element of strategy related to gaining and using his charges as the situation demands.
Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey
In his version of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Mickey is simply one of the most powerful units in the game, particularly due to his great potential to unleash tons of damage both to single targets, as well as to the entire enemy team. Moreover, he can delay an enemy’s turn with his “Magical Mob” skill, which is quite useful for temporarily stopping even the strongest enemies.
And the best part about Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey is that he’s available from the very beginning of the game.
This character is all about doing loads of damage to all enemies. He has skills to destroy even the toughest tanks, as well as to deal the finishing blow to enemies that are weakened. Similarly, he can unleash a barrage of blows with his second special skill, which hits all enemies randomly. However, the fewer enemies there are left standing, the higher the chances that this attack will hit the same objective more times. In fact, if you use it when there’s only one enemy alive, you’ll deal an absurd amount of damage to them, easily eliminating all but the toughest of foes.
If you’re looking for a hero whose sole purpose is dealing ridiculous amounts of damage, Emperor Zurg is your best choice.
Frozen’s popular ice queen can not only dish out great damage with her skills, but she can also buff her allies and herself, as well as inflict negative effects on the enemy. Similar to Dash, she can also build up stacks when she uses her skills, called spirits, which grant increasing stat buffs for every spirit present. Once she has gathered 4 spirits, Elsa will passively damage all enemies at the beginning of her turns, and the stat boost will be doubled.
Elsa is a balanced offensive unit that’s a great fit in any team.
This relentless Mongol warrior is Mulan’s archenemy and specializes in exploiting the enemies’ weaknesses and eliminating them with powerful critical strikes. He has several attacks that not only let him deal great damage to single targets but also to multiple targets at the same time. Similarly, for every critical hit he lands, he delays the enemies’ turns by 30%, and has a chance of speeding up his own speed indicator by 30%.
Shan Yu is the type of hero that benefits the most from the “a best defense is a good offense” mindset. The more he attacks and lands critical blows, this character will have more turns and more opportunities to keep on racking up criticals, and the cycle will continue until either the enemy has been defeated, or Shan Yu falls in combat.
This is an interesting offensive hero, particularly because he specializes in dealing continuous damage instead of direct damage, particularly thanks to his fire attacks that keep on burning after the initial hit. However, his greatest strength lies in the way he can empower himself whenever his health drops below a certain point. When empowered, Hades receives several buffs and his skills gain additional effects, and the more times he empowers himself, these benefits will increase in turn.
Hades is one of those heroes that get stronger as the fight goes on, to the point where they can easily deal with most enemies.
Best Defense Heroes
As their category suggests, defense heroes are not about doing damage, but about absorbing it and keeping their allies safe. These heroes are tasked with taunting the enemy and keeping their attention while the others make short work of them.
The best heroes in this category are the following:
One of the best tanks in the game, with the ability to not only taunt all enemies but also to buff his allies. Similarly, he can summon rock trolls that can assist in both attacking as well as in healing allies.
Kristoff is a very strong character not only because of his defensive properties but also because of all the support he provides. Almost all of his attacks help in one way or another, buff his allies or weaken the enemy. For these reasons, he’s a good tank for most occasions.
This character is similar to Hades in the sense that he can empower himself when his HP drops beneath a certain point. And considering that it’s a tank, his role is to take as much damage as possible, which means that he can empower himself very frequently.
Mor’Du’s main focus is that of an offensive tank, with attacks that not only deal decent damage but also that inflict negative effects on the enemy. It’s as useful as Kristoff in the sense that he goes well with most teams, but we still prefer him over the previous entry since Mor’Du can stand on his own much better, which is mostly due to Kristoff requiring to be teamed with Anna and Elsa to unleash his full potential, which makes him much more costly to use effectively.
Best Support Heroes
The characters in this category are great at looking after their teammates, either by healing them or buffing their stats. In some cases, they can also inflict debuffs on the enemy, though their main function is always supporting their allies.
The best heroes in this category include the following:
Kristoff’s girlfriend is one of the best supporters of Disney Sorcerer’s Arena. This is not only due to the wide array of buffs she passively receives if teamed with Elsa and Kristoff, but because of her fantastic support abilities that are useful in any situation. Furthermore, she also has some offensive potential since her basic attack has a whopping 60% chance to trigger assistance. However, her main draw comes from her ability to bestow Swiftness on her allies.
Anna’s main weakness, however, is that the majority of her best effects trigger only if she has Kristoff, Elsa, or any “Frozen” character in her team. This limits Anna’s usefulness considerably if she’s not in a team with characters belonging to her franchise.
This character suffers from Anna’s same weakness, considering that his best effects require having either Baymax, or other “tech” characters in the formation. However, his restrictions are more lenient, which gives you a bit more liberty when creating teams with Hiro as your support.
This character offers a balance between buffing allies and debuffing enemies but stands out mainly thanks to his shielding abilities that can block a specific amount of damage to all allies.
