Cookie Run: Kingdom Wiki
Advertisement

This article primarily covers team compositions used in high-tier Kingdom Arena battles, or PvP (player versus player). For the purposes of PvE (player versus environment), any balanced combination of Epic Cookies and effective Rare Cookies will get a new player through World Exploration's Story Mode, where progress is primarily gated by power level.

Most teams use Treasure old pilgrims scroll.png Old Pilgrim's Scroll (which gives ATK to all Cookies) and Treasure squishy jelly watch.png Squishy Jelly Watch (which reduces Cooldown for all Cookies) for their Treasures, with the third Treasure changing depending on the player's strategy.

Teams

Premier Meta

Front Middle Rear
Essential
Hollyberry Cookie
Sea Fairy Cookie
Frost Queen Cookie
Cotton Cookie
Optional
Cocoa Cookie
Strawberry Crepe Cookie
Pumpkin Pie Cookie
Almond Cookie
Parfait Cookie

The current premier composition enables the strongest Legendary Cookies in the meta to great effect. Sea Fairy Cookie Skill sea fairy.png and Frost Queen Cookie's Frost queen skill.png Skills create a powerful combination of both damage and lockdown that hits everyone on the enemy team, while the Cookies around them focus on keeping them alive and unburdened from enemy crowd control. Supporting Cookies vary greatly depending on how best the player wants to push their strengths, with Cocoa Cookie being the current most popular addition.

Cocoa Cookie

Pure Vanilla Cookie

Combining Lilac Cookie's Lilac skill.png Chakram Throw and Mint Choco Cookie's Mintskill.webp Battlefield Symphony with the ATK SPD boost provided by Treasure librarians enchanted robes.png Librarian's Enchanted Robes can superbuff Madeleine Cookie's Madeskill.webp Skill-boosted attacks, creating a barrage of team-piercing attacks that very few teams can survive. Notable for not requiring any Ancient or Legendary Cookies, although any may be added to complement the team.

While Lilac Cookie can work well as the second Cookie buffed by the Treasure, Pastry Cookie can be a more effective damage-dealer with her Pastryskill.png Battle Prayer-boosted attacks. Players are typically free to add any other Cookies to complete the team, whether to grant it survivability (Hollyberry, Cocoa, Pure Vanilla), increased damage (Almond, Mango, Twizzly Gummy), or both (Mala Sauce, Sparkling, Pomegranate).

Rye Cookie
Librarian's Enchanted Robes

Also known as the Stun Setup, Brave Team, or Cheese Comp, this subversive team relies on a unified, heavy-hitting burst of attacks and one generally weak yet particularly brave protagonist to take out all of an opposing team at once.

GingerBrave's Braveskill.webp Brave Dash Skill, beating all other Front Cookie Skills in Cooldown, can knock an enemy's Front Cookies back such that either Kumiho Cookie Kumihoskill.webp Somersault or Tiger Lily Cookie's Tigerlskill.webp Tiger Rider Skills can CRK-charm.png Charm/CRK-stun.png Stun the entire enemy team. This provides the perfect opportunity for the DPS Cookies burst down the enemy team in one strike, complemented by Almond Cookie's Almondskill.png Almond Handcuffs skill. The variant using Tiger Lily Cookie allows Almond Cookie to use his Skill prior to the DPS Cookies, ensuring a more decisive round of burst damage while also accomodating almost any choice of Middle Cookies that can take advantage of the window of opportunity. The variant using Kumiho Cookie can get around an enemy Cocoa Cookie while also applying a -20% CRK-defdown.png DEF Down debuff, stunning the enemy team long enough for Frost Queen Cookie's Frost queen skill.png Freezing Squall Skill to detonate after Almond Cookie's Skill is applied; however, it's more reliant on a player running particular Legendary Cookies.

  • Can defeat teams with higher power levels, but may struggle to finish off enemy Cookies that either survive the combo or are revived by Treasure sugar swans shining feather.png Sugar Swan's Shining Feather
  • May not work against teams with Pumpkin Pie Cookie, Cocoa Cookie, or GingerBrave unless specific Topping upgrades and Treasures are used.
  • Treasure librarians enchanted robes.png Librarian's Enchanted Robes can increase the ATK SPD of both GingerBrave and his partner Cookie, helping them perform their Skills quicker to outspeed the enemy team's potential counters.

Bonus: The Oldest Meta[1]

Considered high-tier during the launch of the game, these teams can still hold their own in clearing tough PvE levels.

Front Middle Rear
Essential
Dark Choco Cookie
Espresso Cookie
Herb Cookie
Vampire Cookie

With Dark Choco Cookie standing at the front line to tank heavy hits while dealing strong AoE damage, Vampire Cookie and Espresso Cookie are allowed a comfortable space to deal heavy damage without struggling to stay alive. Coupled with Herb Cookie's high amount of healing and either a second Front Cookie (Strawberry Crepe Cookie, Hollyberry Cookie, Purple Yam Cookie, Mala Sauce Cookie) or a buff enabler (Parfait Cookie, Mango Cookie, Sparkling Cookie, Licorice Cookie), this team is able to take out enemies while taking as little damage as possible.

Front Middle Rear
Essential
Milk Cookie
Licorice Cookie
Pomegranate Cookie
Rye Cookie

For the second team, Milk Cookie and Licorice Cookie bounce nicely off of one another, with Licorice providing a CRK-defup.png DEF Up boost for Milk who needs high DEF and/or DMG Resist to tank as much damage as possible away from the damage dealers. Rye Cookie quickly takes down the weakest enemies first, and paired with a stronger DPS cookie (Sea Fairy Cookie, Vampire Cookie, Black Raisin Cookie, Sorbet Shark Cookie), your team will be dealing constant damage to quickly eliminate enemies. Pomegranate Cookie tops everything off, providing healing over time to keep everyone active while also offering a 20% CRK-atkup.png ATK Up buff to the team to increase overall damage and further speed things up.

Team Pairs

Ryemond

Cookies Treasures
Rye Cookie
Almond Cookie
Treasure bear jellys lollipop bg.png or Pilgrim's Slingshot

Rye Cookie's Ryeskill.webp Final Showdown Skill, which targets the most vulnerable enemy, tends to hit their target just before Almond Cookie's Almondskill.png Almond Handcuffs Skill lands, allowing a team to deal large amounts of damage to all enemies in a short amount of time. While much more reliant on maximized damage output than Gingerscam, this pair's damage combo is far more difficult to interrupt, and easier to hide in other team compositions without compromising them. On the other hand, DMG Resist on the lowest Health enemy blunts the effectiveness of this combo, especially if granted by Strawberry Crepe Cookie. Lower-tier teams may also add Beet Cookie and/or Vampire Cookie to further focus down a vulnerable target, though that particular strategy lacks long-term viability.

Important: You need to activate Almond Cookie's skill right after Rye Cookie for the team pair to work.

Mala-Twizzly Crit

Cookies Treasures
Mala Sauce Cookie
Twizzly Gummy Cookie
Grim-looking Scythe

Combining the CRK-critrateup.png CRIT% Up buff from Mala Sauce Cookie's Mala Sauce Cookie's Skill.png Spicy Mala Strike Skill with the Treasure grim-looking scythe.png Grim-looking Scythe allows Twizzly Gummy Cookie to reach an ideal amount of CRIT without having to run full CRIT Toppings, allowing her to run ATK Toppings to maximize her damage output with TwizzlyBeam.png Twizzly Beam. This also boosts the damage of other hard-hitting Cookies on the team, giving a higher chance of taking out enemies in one shot, all while getting past Pure Vanilla Cookie's shields.

Summoners

Cookies Optional Treasures
Pumpkin Pie Cookie
Cotton Cookie
Snow Sugar Cookie
Licorice Cookie
Treasure seamstress's pin cushion.png

The combination of the CRK-atkspdup.png ATK SPD Up buff from Pumpkin Pie Cookie's Pumpkinpieskill.png Pompon, help! Skill, the CRK-atkup.png ATK Up buff from Cotton Cookie's Cotton skill.png A Warm Light Skill, and Treasure seamstress's pin cushion.png Seamstress's Pin Cushion all greatly boost the DPS of summoned units. These, in turn, boost the effectiveness of other summoners like Snow Sugar Cookie and Licorice Cookie, although Pumpkin Pie Cookie and Cotton Cookie's summoned units can often be supportive enough on their own, to the point that a team can even forego having any Front Cookies in its composition.

Double Support

Cookies
Cotton Cookie
Parfait Cookie

No Pure Vanilla Cookie? No problem! Combining the heal-over-time of both Parfait Cookie and Cotton Cookie's Skills more than makes up for the lack of a Healing Cookie, while also providing tankiness in the form of both a DEF buff and summoned units.

While this duo may struggle against burst damage, it will keep the squad constantly topped off against anything else it survives, while also getting around the CRK-zap.png Zapped and CRK-freeze.png Frozen debuffs currently in the meta.

Darkvamp

Cookies Treasures
Dark Choco Cookie
Vampire Cookie
Pilgrim's Slingshot


Dark Choco Cookie and Vampire Cookie is one pair capable of taking down practically any Rear unit in one shot, especially in lower tiers where players are less likely to put DMG Resist Toppings or upgrades on their Rear Cookies. Using Dark Choco Cookie's Darkchoskill.webp Sword of Darkness Skill with the Pilgrim's Slingshot for further CRK-defdown.png DEF Down is the perfect setup for utilizing Vampire Cookie and his Vampskill.webp Vampirism Skill's immense sniping capabilities. This pair can immediately take out opposing units that would otherwise make or break an Arena Battle like Pure Vanilla Cookie or even another Vampire Cookie. For an even more effective snipe setup, adding Pomegranate Cookie can help increase damage done by Vampire Cookie's Skill with the CRK-atkup.png ATK Up provided by her Pomeskill.webp skill. One simply has to be careful not attack backlines that stack DMG Resist, or teams with Treasure sugar swans shining feather.png Sugar Swan's Shining Feather.

In addition, this pairing works well in both PvP and PvE, being particularly effective against PvE Bosses with large health pools like the Red Velvet Dragon and the Cake Witch.
