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


In Mystery Heroes, players cannot select their own hero.

  • The "Assemble Your Team" section is skipped upon starting a game.
  • Players will be assigned a random hero upon entering a game and every time they respawn, with their ultimate meter being reset. A player cannot respawn as the same hero they were when they died.
    • An exception to this is when a player kills themselves. They will respawn as the same hero, but any buildable objects on the map will disappear and their ultimate meter will still be 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.
