Skylanders Ring of Heroes Best Characters and Tier List
Rerolling is a common method in gacha RPGs, used mainly for obtaining the best characters from the beginning, giving the player a massive advantage when clearing the story and campaign missions. A single powerful character can often make the difference between struggling to clear missions, and completely destroying the enemy with ease. However, the best characters in their respective games are frequently the toughest to obtain from the gacha summoning system due to their low appearance probability.
Skylanders Ring of Heroes is no exception to this as its Legendary characters are, just like their category indicates, the stuff of legends. It’ll take several attempts before you get a Legendary Skylander, which is why players opt to reroll in this game. Luckily, you can find all the info you need for summoning the best characters in this game in our Skylanders rerolling guide. Feel free to give it a read if you want to learn the best tips and tricks for this task.
However, even if you already know how to reroll in Skylanders, you still need to know which characters to aim for, and this is precisely what we’re going to talk about in this guide. In the following paragraphs, we’ll be talking about a few of the game’s best Skylanders, as well as provide a brief tier list of characters based on their power and utility.
Astroblast (Legendary, Light, Attack)
Starting off with what could possibly be the strongest Skylander in the game, Astroblast is everything you’d want in an attacker in a single package. Offering skills that deal tons of damage, both in single and multi-target, as well as abilities that can debuff the enemy and continue dealing damage over time, this Skylander is definitely a force to be reckoned with. His Solar Ray Speed passive makes it so that Astroblast gains the Accelerate effect every time he inflicts the Knockdown state, making his next skill have no cooldown.
Astroblast is just an overall amazing DPS Skylander, and you definitely want to have him in your team—if you can summon him, that is.
Spitfire (Legendary, Fire, Attack)
Spitfire is all about playing with the Explosion debuff to inflict massive damage to all enemies. This means that, while he takes a bit to get started (since he requires applying a debuff to the enemy before triggering the damaging effects), his potential for burst damage is second to none. His affinity for blowing stuff up is such that, if the enemy has at least 3 Explosion effects at the beginning of his turn, Spitfire will passively gain a massive accuracy buff. Plus, if he ever falls in battle, he’ll automatically inflict the Explosion status on all enemies, which allows him to continue hurting the foe even after his demise.
Spitfire is a bit more niche than Astroblast, but still more than capable of pulling his weight with minimal setup required.
Boomer (Rare, Tech, Attack)
While he’s not very strong by himself, Boomer is definitely Spitfire’s best friend due to the ease in which he can inflict the Explosion status on the enemy. By combining their Explosion effects, the rate in which Spitfire can burst the enemy down increases exponentially. Furthermore, since Boomer is a Rare Skylander, he’s fairly easy to summon.
If you manage to get Spitfire, you should try to roll for Boomer as well.
Knight Mare (Legendary, Dark, Support)
With the ability to not only inflict damage-over-time effects with nearly every attack, but also to significantly cripple the enemy with powerful debuffs, Knight Mare is a textbook team player that goes well with any setup. He’s great for lowering the enemy’s defense and evasion, allowing your DPS to quickly burst down squishies, or debilitate tanks enough so that they lose their defensive edge.
Knight Mare’s leader skill is also great as it allows all his allies to automatically inflict the Diminish condition every time they attack an enemy that has over 90% HP, allowing them to do extra damage over time.
Wham-Shell (Premium, Water, Defense)
When it comes to tanks in Skylanders Ring of Heroes, you really can’t go wrong with Wham-Shell. Though his skillset is a bit on the basic side, it essentially includes everything necessary to act as a main tank: Provoke, and Defense. There really isn’t much to say about this character other than he’s a hardy fellow. Moreover, his status as a Premium Skylander makes him one of the easier to summon from this list.
While there are definitely other heavy-hitters out there, these are some of the best characters in Skylanders for just about every role. If you’re looking for more suggestions, however, check out our tier list below.

These are just a few that we managed to examine, and that we feel would be great in the tiers that we assigned them. Obviously, the best Skylanders will always be the ones in the highest tiers, but they’re also the hardest to get from regular summonings. Nevertheless if you’re going to be rerolling, those are definitely the ones you want to aim for; especially Astroblast since he’s a great DPS that shines without any type of assistance or setup required.
