Heroes are a special type of tower that were introduced with Bloons TD 6. Heroes are unique characters that have their own personality, voice lines, abilities and attacks. The major difference from regular towers is that only one Hero may be equipped and placed per player per game. In addition, Heroes do not have the conventional upgrade system. Rather, they have a single upgrade path, with individual tiers being split into smaller "levels" that level based on Hero XP (distinct from Tower and Rank XP), which is accumulated automatically as rounds progress. In co-op each player may have one Hero, so XP is split evenly among players.

Using Heroes[]

Unlike normal towers, only one hero can be placed on the track for each game and automatically gains XP needed to upgrade itself, making them more useful the earlier they are placed. XP gain can be increased or decreased by outside factors, such as Energizer or Monkey Knowledge.

However, they can also be upgraded instantly for a sum of in-game cash. The more XP a hero already has, the lower the amount of cash required to upgrade the hero to the next level. Spending money to level your hero also increases sell price.

Each hero has multiple abilities (all have two with the exception of Ezili, Adora, and Admiral Brickell, who have three and Geraldo who has one) that can be used to the player's advantage. The first ability is unlocked at level 3, and the second ability is unlocked at level 10; for Ezili, Adora and Brickell, they gain their second ability at level 7 and third at level 10. The highest level a hero can reach is 20.

Hero Leveling[]

Heroes require a set amount of XP per level (see BTD6 Heroes XP). For most purposes, the amount of money needed for an upgrade is the amount of XP required. Heroes gain XP at the end of the round by the same formula as towers (see BTD6 Towers XP).

The following tables show the round on which a Hero will reach Level 20, if placed on round 1, and if no levels are bought.

  • Pat Fusty, Gwendolin, Quincy (in his Cyber Quincy skin), Ezili and Etienne are the only heroes that call out a B.A.D. by its name.
  • Among all the heroes that call out a M.O.A.B. by its name, Striker Jones and Etienne say 'M-O-A-B', while all other heroes pronounce MOAB as 'Mow-AHB'.
  • Heroes say different voice lines when wearing an alternate skin.
  • Pat Fusty has the shortest range of all of the heroes.
  • Adora has the longest displayed range of any hero when her Long Arm of Light ability is active.
  • You can annoy Heroes by repeatedly tapping (or clicking on) them.
  • You can replay hero placement voice lines by using the Support Chinook moving ability on them.
  • According to Ninja Kiwi's August 6th 2021 blog, several lore has been discovered.
    • Hero skins are simple cosmetic variants of the original heroes, but the ETn skin utilizes the concept of alternate universes.
    • Adora and Quincy hate spicy food the most.
  • According to Ninja Kiwi's 3rd September 2021 blog, Captain Churchill is the best hero at chess.
  • According to Ninja Kiwi's 1st October 2021 blog, Dr. Monkey messing with the multiverse is the reason why having multiple heroes per game is possible. On the same blog, they also said that turning off hero audio basically makes heroes simulate a playing game of "who can be the most quiet?", which is the canonical lore to this in-game feature.
  • According to Ninja Kiwi's 8th October 2021 blog, they work with a voice talent agency for most of their voice acting work. They are found here.
  • Accroding to Ninja Kiwi's November 12th 2021 blog, each of the heroes have a preferred method of transportation. The favored transportation methods for Churchill and Brickell are obvious by judging their vehicles, but Striker likes parachuting and Quincy likes walking.
    • The same blog also states that Ninja Kiwi is hoping to release some Hero plushies.
  • According to Ninja Kiwi's December 3rd 2021 blog, there is a possibility for non-monkey heroes to come to Bloons TD 6, but they had also stated that Heroes must "be packed to overflowing with character."
