A Champion is a hero or villain that a Summoner uses to defeat opponents. They are acquired through Crystals and the Multiverse Arenas and vary in rarity and strength.

Each Champion has a Hero Rating that can be increased by leveling up, ranking up, Mastery points, and in Arenas and Quests through Synergy Bonuses. Each Champion has a Signature Ability that is unlocked from getting a duplicate of that Champion from a Crystal, as well as three Special Attacks that are unique to that Champion. Champions can also be given Items, which serve a variety of tasks. Boosts are temporary items that increase stats such as Attack, Health, and XP; certain Boosts are exclusive to certain events, such as the Chained Soul Boost being exclusive to the Story Event Pandemonium Rising.

Marvel: Contest of Champions currently features 120 playable characters and 23 non-playable characters, with many confirmed to be added in the future.
