Team-ups allow three additional characters to fight by your side and deliver a well-timed punch! Each team-up power brought into battle is a single use ability, and must be powered by team-up AP that is generated by matching team-up tiles.

Team-up tiles have replaced environment tiles and open up new gameplay strategies for players of all levels. Unlike environment tiles, team-Up tiles deal damage to the enemy when matched.

The player has a ~15% chance to obtain team-ups in any battle where they defeat a hero or villain who has a team-up ability. Members of alliances can also send their characters as team-ups to each other, although the precise power granted will be chosen randomly from among the eligible abilities of the character sent.

Up to 5 characters can be sent away as team-ups at any time. Sending a character away as a team-up will activate that character's team-up cooldown, during which time they cannot be sent again as a team-up, but will still be available to do battle for the player.


  • If a character is powered up in an event, the team-ups associated with that character will also be powered up.
  • In PvE, players are prohibited from selecting a team-up if that character is already on the enemy team or is an enemy team-up. There is no such restriction in PvP.
  • In PvE, if the defender has a particularly dangerous team-up, the player can opt to deploy that character in the match, thereby preventing the defender from using that team-up. This trick will not work in PvP.
  • Team-ups are chosen randomly for defenders in PvP from a pool of team-ups that is appropriate to the strength of the defender.
  • Team-ups are chosen randomly for defenders in PvE from a pool of team-ups based on the player's lineup. It is therefore possible to change the AI's team-up power in PvE by adjusting one's lineup.
  • Passives and powers that change the caster's state cannot be given as Team-ups. For powers that have both an active and a passive, only the active parts can be given as Team-ups.
