You might notice the Cookie Run Kingdom tier list above is short more than a few cookies. That's because of the rarity system. Unlike the World Flipper tier list, which has three and four star characters constantly top its tier list, the more common characters of Cookie Run: Kingdom are usurped by any in their role at a higher rarity.

You'll have to rely on these lesser baked goods like Beet and Avocado early on, but getting any similar character at epic rarity or above will, once comparatively built, prove more useful.
Is Maracon Cookie good?
We'll update this section once we've had a chance to see Maracon Cookie in action. Through previous updates, though, we're certain Maracon Cookie will have her place in the meta - likely as a prime counter to Schwarzwalder in arena battles.
What are the best Cookie Run: Kingdom builds?
As a team-building gacha RPG, how you outfit your units will dictate how useful they are in your team. Top-tier units can perform comparatively well with little effort, but any cookie will shine with the optimal equipment for their skillset.
Toppings play a big part in this. There's no reason to use them to boost the offensive power of a defensive unit, for example. Luckily, we've rounded up the best Cookie Run: Kingdom Toppings in a separate guide. It's a big one, but it's essential reading to ensure you don't waste any valuable toppings on less-capable cookies. We even have a guide on Cookie Run: Kingdom cookie cutters to help you in that department as well.
