The Legends of Brawlhalla are the playable personas in game. Each Legend has a unique weapon design, 6 signature moves, and their own base stats.
In the game, players will have 8 Legends available to play for free. These legends will only be free for 7 days. Daily Challenges will only have the player select any of these 8 Legends for the challenge of that day. Rotations offer the same selection of Legends to everyone, no matter what platform you are on.
The available free Legends will be switched out each week, usually on a wednesday. After the switch, 8 different legends will be available to play for free, and the previous 8 Legends will be locked until some other rotation includes them. Legends are seemingly selected at random for each rotation, however, newer Legends tent to be included in a rotation three weeks after their original release.
During the week of a rotation, the available legends will have a small blue icon below their picture in the Legend select menu. If a purchased Legend is a part of the rotation, that Legend will have an icon as well.
Players can buy legends from Mallhalla. Once purchased, that legend become available to the player forever. New legends will cost 7,200 for 2 weeks before having their price reduced. Legends generally cost 5,400, unless that legend was released before beta version 1.8.0, in which case Legend prices range from 5,400, 3,900, and 2,300.
Currently, the game has a roster of 44 characters, which can all be seen here:
