Abilities and Stats
In the Story

Red Hulk is a Science Champion. Being a Science Champion, he has a Class Bonus against Mystic Champions, but is weak to Skill Champions.


General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross has done the unthinkable in his unending mission to hunt down and destroy the Incredible Hulk. Using a combination of radiations, Ross has turned himself into what he hated for so long: a walking weapon of mass destruction. Now, equipped with super strength, durability and the ability to absorb radiation and energy, Thunderbolt Ross struggles with his desire to end the Hulk without succumbing to his own monstrous impulses.

Strengths and Weaknesses


  • Against Champions that deal Energy Damage with their base attacks, Red Hulk will be able to get his Heat Charges building very rapidly for massive damage output.
  • Red Hulk’s Energy Damage from Scorch bypasses the Physical Resistance of certain PR-reliant Champions.
  • Red Hulk’s ability to convert Poison into Heat Charges turns away much of the attack power of Poison-reliant Champions.
  • Incinerate allows Red Hulk to reduce the strong defensive capabilities of defense-focused Champions.


  • Champions that have strong Bleed effects that ignore Physical Resistance and do not deal Energy Damage that Red Hulk can absorb are not good matchups for Red Hulk.

Recommended Masteries

  • Liquid Courage: As Red Hulk automatically shrugs off Poison effects, he gains the Attack boost without the damage. Additionally, his Scorch ability has a chance to convert that Poison effect into a free Heat Charge to get his damage output higher at the start of the fight.
  • Energy Resistance and Serum Science: Red Hulk can have some of the highest Physical Resistance in the game. However, he has little in the way of defense when it comes to Energy Damage. While his conversion can generate Heat Charges, the actual damage still goes through. Grabbing these two Masteries will allow Red Hulk to soak up that damage and keep his Heat Charges going.


  • In the description for Red Hulk's second Special Attack, "Leaving nothing for the enemy." is an incomplete sentence.

The description for Red Hulk's third Special Attack is lacking a period at the end of the sentence.

  • "Sic vis pacem para bellum" (more commonly translated as "si vis pacem, para bellum") is a Latin adage that translates to "If you want peace, prepare for war."
