A Tier is defined by how many stars a Champion has. Champions are most commonly referred to by how many stars they have (e.g. a Tier 3 Black Panther is referred to as a 3*, or three-star, Black Panther). Tier 1 Champions are the least powerful, with Tier 2 being the most common, while Tier 5 Champions are rare but significantly stronger.

On October 7, 2015 Tier 5[1] Champions were announced and were released in version 5.0[2] of the game. Tier 5 Champions have a mini game on their third Special Attack that, if done successfully, will do more damage.

On August 15, 2017, Tier 6 Champions were announced to be released in early 2018, debuting in Quests in October 2017. When they are released, 24 Champions will automatically be available as a Tier 6 Champion. Tier 6 Champions will have a special skill called "Adrenaline" that activates whenever they are struck that gives the player a chance to hit their opponent back and regain some of the Health that they had lost.[3]
