Gamemoge arcade mysteryheroes

Mystery Heroes is an Arcade game mode. It is used to be a brawl but was upgraded to a full gamemode due to its popularity..


In Mystery Heroes, players cannot select their own hero.

  • Although players are still able to select their starting hero in the "Assemble Your Team" session, they will be randomly assigned a hero after and cannot switch off of it.
  • They will also be assigned a random hero every time they respawn, with their ultimate charge being reset. It is possible that a player could respawn as the same hero they were when they died.
    • If this occurs, buildable objects will remain (such as turrets), but the ultimate charge is still reset.
  • Because of the randomly-assigned hero mechanic, hero stacking is allowed.

Otherwise, Mystery Heroes matches play identically to standard Quick Play matches; it means other rules and objectives of the game follows the map in play.
