We all have been playing Super Mario our entire childhood, and the new Mario Strikers Battle League has got everyone excited for the release. Players across the world have been wondering whether Mario Strikers Battle League has Unlockable Characters or not, as there were many unlockable characters in the previous Mario Striker games.

Mario Strikers Battle League

Although the Mario Strikers Battle League is a new release in the Mario Strikers series, it does not have any unlockable characters. The game has a smaller roster size, but there are quite a few abilities that are way better than the last games.

The players can improve their traits and stats by equipping themselves with better gear. Some different modes and gears are unlockable with earned coins.

Character in Mario Strikers Battle League

There are currently ten characters in Mario Strikers battle leagues and eleven characters, if we count the keeper, Boom Boom. All these characters are already available from the get-go, and the game has no Unlockable Characters at the time of writing.

Additionally, we believe when the game gets DLCs, we will see characters that may become available to play after you have unlocked them. In any case, here’s a list of all the characters in Mario Strikers Battle League 


(Unlocked from the get-go)

Maria is known as a balanced character with the Trick Set gear. Mario has a high technique that makes him one of the greatest characters in the game. The capable character Mario is also renowned for their shooting style.

Toad is one of the best playmakers and a perfect passer, too, as it has a high speed and passing stat against the opponents. It is highly recommended to have Toad on your team since Toad can quickly bring the ball to the other end of the field.

Boom Boom

(Unlocked from the get-go)

Boom Boom is not a character on the field; rather, Boom Boom is a goalkeeper in Mario Strikers Battle League. His main aim is to protect the goalpost from the opponent’s ball. 

Once the Boom Boom has the ball, the player has to press B to pass the ball to any character of your team. Moreover, players can use Boom Boom when an opponent performs hyper strikes toward the goalkeeper. The player will have to press the button A to block the hyper strikes. 

Other Unlockables

Knowing that Mario Strikers Battle League doesn’t have any unlockable characters, we shouldn’t be sad because there are some very interesting game modes and gears that need to be unlocked. 


As you go further in the game, you can unlock new gear by purchasing it in exchange for the coins. Every set of gear has a different attribute that will improve your character’s playstyle. It will either boost up or reduce some specs of the character. Each gear set has a helmet, Gauntlets, chest, boots, and pad. 

If you want to unlock the gear sets, you have to go to the settings menu and purchase each piece of the gear set for 100 coins. All gear sets can be purchased with coins, but only the Bushido gear set needs to be unlocked differently. Here’s a list of all the Gear Sets.

  • Muscle Gear Set- boosts up the strength
  • Turbo Gear Set- Boosts up the speed
  • Trick Gear Set- Boosts up the techniques
  • Chain Gear Set- Boosts up passing
  • Cannon Gear Set- Boosts up strength
  • Bushido Gear Set- Boosts each stat by 4 points

Bushido Gear Set

The Bushido Gear Set is different because each one of the set pieces has the power to boost any attribute by 4 points, unlike in other gear sets that boost an attribute by 1 point only. 

The Bushido Gear Set can only be unlocked once the player wins the Championship Cup. Even after the Bushido Gear Set is unlocked, you have to buy it for 300 coins for each piece. This set is available from the Gear Settings menu. 


There are several modes in the Mario Strikes Battle League that can be unlocked to give the players a boost in several attributes. Two things can be unlocked to improve your progress in the game. One is the Championship Cup, and the other one is the Galactic Mode.

Championship Cup

The Championship Cup is an all-around cup that focuses on multiple attributes rather than a single one. To unlock the Championship Cup, the player will have first to unlock the basic cups, including the Cannon Cup, Chain Cup, Muscle Cup, Turbo Cup, and the Trick Cup. These all cups can be accessed in the Cup Battles mode. 

Once you have completed the main portion of the Cup Battles, you will automatically unlock the Championship Cup. 

Galactic Mode

Most players play the game in a Normal Difficulty mode, but the Galactic Mode is a step up from the Normal Difficulty mode. To unlock the Galactic Mode, you must complete all cups, including the Canon Cup, Chain Cup, Turbo Cup, Muscle Cup, Trick Cup, and the final Championship Cup, during the battles. 

All the Cup Battles are completed in the Normal Difficulty Mode, which will then enable the Galactic Mode for you. The Galactic Mode just makes every Cup Battle more difficult, and the player will have to play all battles again. 

DLC Characters in Mario Strikers Battle League

Since there are no unlockable characters in the Mario Strikers Battle League game, there are hints that character unlocks will be present in the form of a DLC. Previously Nintendo used this form of characters to add up in the game. 

Although this is different from the previous Mario Strikers, this new norm of adding characters in the DLC rather than making them unlockable is fascinating to many players who enjoy playing this series. 

Players are missing their old favorite characters that we are hoping to see in the DLC. These characters are Bowser, Daisy, Jr., Petey Pirahna, and Diddy Kong. These characters were previously seen in the Mario Strikers Charged as captains. 


We have given you all possibilities related to Mario Strikers Battle League, all Unlockable Characters. There are none in the game, but there will be some present in the DLC, which is good news for all the Mario Strikers players. We hope our guide on this newly launched game cleared all your queries and misunderstandings.
