Best team compositions in Mario Strikers: Battle League

There are many characters to choose from when building a team, but we have compiled a list of team builds and characters that we recommend. Make sure to maximize your builds with the right gear. Here are some of the best team compositions in Mario Strikers: Battle League.

Best Balanced team in Mario Strikers: Battle League

This team brings a little bit of everything to the table, meaning your players will be able to tackle most situations and come out on top. While this team composition will not be the strongest in any given skill, it gives the flexibility that a single-stat-focused team doesn't. Here is our recommended balanced team build in Mario Strikers: Battle League.

  • Rosalina – Offense
  • Peach – Midfield Forward
  • Toad – Midfield Back
  • Donkey Kong – Defense

Rosalina provides everything you could want in a forward—excellent Strength and Shooting. With Peach's Speed and Passing skills, you can easily set Rosalina up for a good shot. You can also boost Peach's Shooting to make her a viable striker as well. Toad takes up a strong position as a support, using Speed or Passing to control the middle of the field and ensure the ball is in your hands. Finally, Donkey Kong is one of the best defenders thanks to his Strength and Passing skills.

Best Bruiser team in Mario Strikers: Battle League

Sometimes, brute strength is the answer, and that is true here in Mario Strikers: Battle League. This team won't win any race, but you can batter and tackle the other team into surrender. If that doesn't work, you can use this team's strong Shooting skills to sink goal after goal. Here is our recommended bruiser team build in Mario Strikers: Battle League.

  • Bowser – Offense
  • Wario / Rosalina – Midfield Forward
  • Wario / Rosalina – Midfield Back
  • Waluigi / Donkey Kong – Defense

This team relies on Strength and Shooting to win. Bowser excels at both, making him the perfect striker. You can opt to put Wario or Rosalina either at midfield forward or back, as they both play this position well. Finally, you can't go wrong with having Waluigi or Donkey Kong at defense. We recommend Waluigi if you prefer Speed, as he can take the ball up field himself. Donkey Kong can tackle an opponent, scoop up the ball, and get it to your strikers easily if you prefer Passing.

Best Speed team in Mario Strikers: Battle League

Speed plays a large role in Mario Strikers: Battle League. It allows you to outpace your opponents, whether you are chasing them down for a big tackle or running down the pitch to score a goal. Here is our recommended Speed team build in Mario Strikers: Battle League.

  • Peach – Offense
  • Toad – Midfield Forward
  • Luigi – Midfield Back
  • Waluigi / Donkey Kong – Defense

We like this spread because it gives you a strong presence of Speed while not neglecting the other stats. Peach and Toad are some of the fastest characters in the game and work together quite well to set Peach up for the shot. Luigi performs well with a boost to speed, and his Passing and Technique allow him to bring the ball upfield himself or get it to Toad. Finally, Waluigi's incredible Speed and Strength make him an excellent defender, and Donkey Kong performs well here with a boost to Speed.

Best Teamwork team in Mario Strikers: Battle League

This team focuses on Passing and Shooting. While it may suffer in other aspects, you can move the ball around the field by passing and line up your strong shooters for the game-winning goal. Here is our recommended teamwork team build in Mario Strikers: Battle League.

  • Wario / Rosalina – Offence
  • Yoshi – Midfield Forward
  • Toad / Luigi – Midfield Back
  • Donkey Kong – Defense

You can choose either Wario or Rosalina to be your main goal scorer, as they have some of the highest Shooting stats in the game. Yoshi is an excellent character to provide support up front thanks to Yoshi's strong Shooting and Passing. Either Toad or Luigi can play your midfield back, as they both have fantastic Passing, which lets them get the ball to your strikers. Finally, Donkey Kong's Strength and Passing make him the perfect defender, as he can tackle and pass the ball forward with ease.
