Similarly, Edge and Bowser are also locked behind boss fights in Mario Rabbids Sparks Of Hope. Including Rabbid Rosalina; these are the only three characters that are not available at the start of the game. Midnite is not that hard of a boss fight to tackle additionally. 

She doesn’t hit as hard as other bosses, but she has quick mobility and additionally has 3 phases in her boss fight, which is actually higher than other bosses in the game. However, it is very easy to hit her when she is in your character’s line of sight in the game. Rabbid Rosalina joins your team as soon as you start the boss fight, and she can be upgraded or added to your team once you beat the boss.

Rabbid Rosalina’s Abilities 

Rabbid Rosalina has two abilities in the game. The first one is actually tied to her main weapon, and it is very effective against enemies behind cover. Her second ability is the ultimate attack or Rabbid Rosalina’s special move that can come in clutch in various situations. We will discuss both of her abilities in complete detail.

The Kaboomer (Image Credit: eXputer)

This weapon is actually a short-range cover annihilator and very effective in destroying any and all enemy cover in the game. Rabbid Rosaline doesn’t deal much damage to enemies directly, but she makes sure that their cover is destroyed and they are hurt enough to be one-shotted by other team members.

That makes her one of the best support characters, even though she isn’t a healer in the game. She leaves enemies vulnerable so that the attackers on your team can pick them off one by one. Don’t expect her to charge into battle herself, as that is not the right playstyle for Rabbid Rosalina.

The Base Stats Of Kaboomer (Image Credit: eXputer)

The initial range of Kaboomer is actually 15 meters, but our Rosalina’s weapon range has been upgraded to the max, which is 21 meters. That is still very low even after the full upgrades. You have to make sure that Rabbid Rosalina is always close to the enemies so that you can effectively use her weapon to break down cover. Additionally, her weapon shoots 12 projectiles; she most certainly breaks the cover in a single turn and even deals damage on top of that.

The Ennui (Image Credit: eXputer)

Ennui is Rabbid Rosalina’s special or ultimate attack and is one of the best ultimate in the game additionally. It is very useful in certain situations and allows your team to heal if things get worse. Basically, when Rosalina uses this ability, every enemy in the range of the attack is affected by the stasis effect.

That translates to enemies getting stunned or frozen for the next turn, and they won’t use any attack or heals. In the meantime, you can use the chance to heal your team again and change your positions on the battlefield if the enemies get too close. However, do not hit enemies when they are under the stasis effect, as that will override Rabbid Rosalina’s ability, and the enemies will not remain frozen.

The Base Stats Of Ennui (Image Credit: eXputer)

These are the basic stats of Ennui in Mario Rabbids Sparks Of Hope. As you can see, the range of this attack is not that great. Only use Ennui when a large group of enemies is in your range as that is the best method of utilizing the attack. However, Ennui requires 4 turns for a cooldown after usage. So you will probably only get a single chance of using the attack in most fights in the overworld. 

How To Play With Rabbid Rosalina

Rabbid Rosalina is right up there with the Best Characters in Mario Rabbids Sparks Of Hope.

The Kaboomer is strong enough to finish most fodder enemies if they are not hiding behind any cover. Otherwise, this gun makes sure that the cover is broken completely and that the damage dealt to the enemy is not that great. However, you can use the attacker on your team to finish the job once the cover is broken.

Additionally, the weapon is best utilized at medium and close range, and it doesn’t cover even the smaller maps completely. So it is always recommended to stay close to the opponents when you’re using Rabbid Rosalina for the most effective attacks.

Again, Ennui has even less range than the weapon range of Rabbid Rosalina, as you can see in the image above. But it will affect all enemies that are in the range of the attack. So you should move in the middle of the battlefield and use Ennui when almost all of the enemies get in the range of the move. Ennui itself is amazing as it helps your team get a breather during tougher battles and you can use the next turn to re-strategize whilst healing the team additionally.

Rabbid Rosalina is always going to stay closer to enemy territory due to her playstyle, and she will be the most vulnerable. However, Reflector can help ease things down as it redirects some of the damage dealt to Rabbid Rosalina back at the enemy.

This spark additionally has an offensive buff as well which increases the damage of your weapon in the game. That is why Reflector is also one of the Best Sparks In Mario Rabbids Sparks Of Hope.

Pyrogeddon is an amazing offensive spark in the park that also causes burning to enemies. Not only does the spark deal high raw damage, but enemies weak to fire will almost get destroyed by its attacks.

Best Team

Mario Rabbids Sparks Of Hope is a tactical strategy game where you play in teams of three. You can make the team from any of the 9 available characters in the roster. Make sure to pair Rabbid Rosalina with those characters that enhance her play style.

The Best Team For Rabbid Rosalina (Image Credit: eXputer)

Rabbid Rosalina needs a good attacker and a healer in her team. And that is an absolute requirement. She cannot survive on her own, and she definitely cannot completely kill tougher enemies. All she does is destroy the cover of enemies and kill most fodders, but she needs a good attacker to rely on in the game. 

Edge is one of the best attackers in the game. Her weapon has an amazing range, and it additionally deals double damage as it moves like a boomerang. However, the weapon itself is a spinning blade that cuts everyone in its path. This means that you can attack multiple enemies at once if they are standing in a single line. That is very helpful as you can use it to finish off enemies that have been weakened by Rabbid Rosalina.

Lastly, we need a healer on our team, as Rabbid Rosalina cannot support herself on the battlefield. And there is no better healer than Rabbid Peach. She is both a healer and an offensive character. Not only does her ultimate ability heal the whole team, but she also damages enemies behind cover using her main weapon. That, again is very useful to finish off enemies that have been made vulnerable by Rabbid Rosalina.


Mario Rabbids Sparks Of Hope is a really fun tactical strategy game that is also a crossover between Nintendo and Ubisoft‘s iconic franchises. It has an engaging story, additionally with a well-designed combat system. The game runs smoothly on the Nintendo Switch and suffers from almost no performance issues. It is a great sequel as well, and fans of Mario Rabbids Kingdom Battle will love the game.
