Ghost Rider is a Mystic champion. Being a Mystic Champion, he has a Class Bonus against Cosmic champions, but has a penalty against Science champions.


Tricked by the demonic being Mephisto into selling his soul to save a loved one, stunt cyclist Johnny Blaze soon found himself bonded to the Spirit of Vengeance, a being of almost unlimited power from Hell itself. With the power to control Hellfire as well as his mystical Hell Cycle and Hell Chains, Ghost Rider has turned against Mephisto's purpose and instead uses his newfound abilities to protect the innocent and cast judgment upon the wicked.


  • Passive: A lack of blood provides immunity to Bleed.
  • Evil’s Bane (passive): Against Villains, Ghost Rider has a +20% chance to place Judgments and gains +X armor and critical rating.
  • Judgment (passive): Ghost Rider can see his opponent's transgressions and place Judgments upon them. Judgments can only be applied once per fight and last indefinitely.
    • The duration of each Judgment's secondary effect is increased by 75% for each active Judgment.
  • Finish a 5-hit combo with a light attack: Judgment of Spite: 70% chance.
    Secondary: Inflicts Bleed, dealing X direct damage over 3 seconds.
  • Heavy attacks: Judgment of Malice: 80% chance.
    Secondary: Gains a Lifesteal passive lasting 5.75 seconds, granting X health steal with each attack.

Signature Ability

  • Spirit of Vengeance
    • Judgment of Corruption: 65% chance.
      Secondary: Gains a Fury buff, providing X attack for 7.5 seconds.

Special Attacks

  • Special 1 - Retribution: Supernatural strikes from weapons that slice, bludgeon and burn all at once.
    • Judgment of Pride: 70% chance.
      Secondary: Fate Seals the opponent, nullifying all buffs and any other buffs gained for 5 seconds.
  • Special 2 - Hellfire Blast: Let fly fires so hot that they char the very soul.
    • Judgment of Anger: 80% chance.
      Secondary: Inflicts Power Drain, depleting 18% max power over 2 seconds.
  • Special 3 - Penance Stare: Ghost Rider lets loose the Penance Stare to judge his opponent. But not before rapidly introducing them to his Hell Cycle.
    • Judgment of Guilt: 100% chance.
      Secondary: Inflicts Damnation, which deals X direct damage over 4 seconds. Opponents under Damnation are also Power Locked, Heal Blocked and Fate Sealed.
    • When Damnation expires, all Judgments are removed from the opponent and can be applied again.

Strengths and Weaknesses


  • Bleed immunity: Ghost Rider's immunity to Bleed effects makes Bleed-reliant champions less of a threat.
  • Multi-purpose: Ghost Rider's abilities are designed specifically to counter many types of champions. For instance, against buff-reliant opponents, he can activate Fate Seal after using some of his previous Judgments to maximise its duration and locking them down very well. Alternatively, against heavily-armored opponents, Ghost Rider can utilise his Bleed effect topped with the Fury from his awakened ability to maximise damage output.


  • Tenacity: Many of Ghost Rider's Judgment effects are debuffs which will not help against champions who can reliably shrug them off, thus reducing his offensive capabilities significantly.

Recommended Masteries

  • Parry: Landing a heavy attack is paramount to gaining Lifesteal if Ghost Rider is low on health or to maximise the potency of another secondary effect. Grabbing this mastery will allow him to Stun the opponent long enough to land a heavy attack.
  • Mystic Dispersion: When timed correctly, Ghost Rider's Fate Seal on his special 1 allows him to strip away the opponent's buffs and gain a large burst of power. This can allow him to quickly build up to multiple Judgments before hitting the big Damnation to finish the fight.


  • The word "judgment" is occasionally misspelled throughout Ghost Rider's abilities as "judgement".
  • Although Ghost Rider was added as a result of Robbie Reyes' inclusion in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the version seen in Marvel: Contest of Champions is the Johnny Blaze version.
