Champions are the playable characters in Paladins. Each one has its own unique abilities and fighting style. Champions use Cards to increase their performance and enhance their skills, and Items to help them adapt to specific situations in any match.

Champions are organized into 4 different types: Front Line, Damage, Support and Flank.

Every champion has a unique weapon, 4 skills, and a special skill called Ultimate. Ultimate skills are not subject to cooldown, but instead have a meter that must be charged before they can be used. This meter passively gains a 1% charge every 3.33s but can be actively increased by dealing damage to enemies and restoring the missing health of allies. Landing a killing blow on an enemy with a high killstreak grants an additional 10% ultimate charge for each killstreak after the 5th. Using an ultimate will deplete the meter, allowing it to recharge.

Each champion also posseses 4 unique Talents. Talents grant access to different playstyles by providing strong boosts to certain aspects of the champion, with some talents even causing radical changes to the way their weapon or skills work, usually at the cost of some counterbalancing penalty.

New players start with 5 champions unlocked by default: Cassie, Jenos, Lex, Ruckus and Viktor. Players also gain temporary access to 4 champions from a rotating free champion schedule. The free rotation is changed every 2 weeks.

Additional champions can be purchased for either Currency Gold.png Gold or Currency Crystals.png Crystals. The majority of the cast costs 30000 Currency Gold.png / 200 Currency Crystals.png to unlock while the most recently released champions cost 60000 Currency Gold.png / 300 Currency Crystals.png. A few champions (such as Buck and Grohk) cost 15000 Currency Gold.png / 100 Currency Crystals.png instead.

The Founder's Pack includes the Champion Pack, which automatically unlocks all current and future Champions in the game without any additional costs.

Each champion has their own Mastery Level, which increases the more they are played. Achieving new levels with a champion grants special rewards.

Players are required to have at least 12 owned champions to access Ranked.
