Kingdom Rush best hero for each game
Each Kingdom Rush has heroes, and these are the best ones
Since the first of the Kingdom Rush games, heroes have been a critical mechanic. Though you can only have one hero on the field at a time, they can prove to be essential in turning the tide of battle. They act as special melee units that can be directed all over the field to lend their strength and support wherever you need them. Each game has many heroes to choose from with varying abilities and stats. You'll only receive a handful of heroes through progression with most of them being in-game purchases.

While you'll have access to plenty of heroes as you progress through the different missions, you won't be able to utilize all of them. You'll typically be limited to one hero per battle and based on your choice, you can change tower arrangements to complement them. Like towers, heroes have a mix of passive and active abilities, the latter of which has a cooldown after use. You can also buy upgrades between missions that apply to all of your heroes. While in the field, your heroes will take damage but will recover over time. When a hero falls, they have a respawn timer.
Each game offers between 13 to 14 unique heroes. The following list shows all of the Kingdom Rush heroes ranked by Damage and names the top three heroes for each game.

|Sir Gerald Lightseeker||24-40||580-696||145||High||Medium|
Ingvar BearclawWhen you've got the option of literal bear strength to deploy, it only makes sense to do so. That's why Ingvar Bearclaw stands above the other heroes with such bulk and strength. His high attack power and health allow you to plop him down into the middle of any battle to deal some serious damage. Though he has no ranged attacks, he can summon reinforcements with Ancestor Call and turn into a stat-empowered bear after his health drops below 60 percent.
Elora WintersongOf all the seasons to control, Elora Wintersong proves that winter is the most devastating. Being a magic user, she focuses on dishing out lots of damage from a distance. She can also get around the field in no time with her very high speed. Though she doesn’t have the most health, she can evade damage easily. With Permafrost and Ice Storm, surrounding enemies will be ripe for the picking from her and your forces.
OniFrom Japanese mythology comes the vicious demon spirit known as Oni. Another melee attacker, Oni uses his dual blades to tear through enemy units rapidly. He has a high enough speed for crossing the battlefield swiftly and can take a lot of punishment with all of his health and decent armor. Both of his abilities, Sword Torment and Death Strike, hit hard and ignore all resistances and armor when landing.
