The Greatest PvE Builds in Cookie Run Kingdom

It’s important to know that PvE gameplay in Cookie Run Kingdom is incredibly flexible, allowing players to test different compositions and characters that might work on some stages, but may not elsewhere. These builds aren’t limited to the characters needed, so feel free to swap in what feels necessary.

Survive, Survive, and Survive Build

This build focuses on survivability with tanks, supports, and healers as the main highlight. The whole point is to outlast the enemy and survive while dealing decent damage and slowly dwindling opposing forces. There are a lot of options to choose from that all work well together, so feel free to mix and match.

  • Tank – Hollyberry Cookie (5x Solid Almond M Toppings), Fettucine Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings), Burnt Cheese Cookie (5x Solid Almond M Toppings), Financier Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings), and Crimson Coral Cookie (5x Solid Almond M Toppings) – PICK TWO ONLY
  • DPS Creme Brulee Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), Golden Cheese Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), Frost Queen Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), Squid Ink Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), and Mango Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings) – PICK ONE ONLY
  • Healer/Support  Snapdragon Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings), Pure Vanilla Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings), Parfait Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings), and Cotton Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings) – PICK TWO ONLY
  • Treasure Items – Squishy Jelly Watch or Sleepyhead’s Jelly Watch, Disciple’s Magic Scroll, and Gatekeeper Ghost’s Horn

Double Burst Clear Wave Build

You will need to time your abilities precisely with this build, as it trades defense for high-burst damage in battle and nukes incoming enemy waves. Cooldown-reduction treasures and high-damage-dealing bomber and magic-type cookies are a must.

  • Tank – Hollyberry Cookie (5x Solid Almond M Toppings), Fettucine Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings), and Crimson Coral Cookie (5x Solid Almond M Toppings) – PICK ONE ONLY
  • DPS – Frost Queen Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), Golden Cheese Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), Squid Ink Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), Sea Fairy Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), White Lily Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), and Mango Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings) – PICK TWO ONLY
  • Healer/Support – Snapdragon Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings), Pure Vanilla Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings), Parfait Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings), and Cotton Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings) – PICK TWO ONLY
  • Treasure Items – Squishy Jelly Watch or Sleepyhead’s Jelly Watch, Dream Conductor’s Whistle, and Old Pilgrim’s Scroll

Triple-Trouble High-DPS Build

If you’re going against really tanky enemies, this build completely obliterates everything in its path. The only issue with this build would be its lack of defense, which is supported by the Gatekeeper Ghost’s Horn treasure, adding a little bit of defense for the entire team.

  • Tank – Hollyberry Cookie (5x Solid Almond M Toppings), and Fettucine Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings) – PICK ONE ONLY
  • DPS – Golden Cheese Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), Frost Queen Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), White Lily Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), Sea Fairy Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings) Moonlight Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), Black Pearl Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), Stardust Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), Squid Ink Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings), and Mango Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings) – PICK THREE ONLY
  • Healer/Support – Pure Vanilla Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings), Icicle Yeti Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings), and Snapdragon Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings) – PICK ONE ONLY
  • Treasure Items – Gatekeeper’s Ghost Horn, Squishy Jelly Watch or Sleepyhead’s Jelly Watch, and Grim-looking Scythe.

Creme Brulee Boss Destroyer Build

This build comes from our guide on the best PvP builds in Cookie Run Kingdom, and it’s actually one of the strongest PvE builds in the entire game. Not only does it dominate the arena, but it’s perfect for boss fights due to its incredible ramping power and survivability. All cookies and treasures within this build are mandatory.

  • Tank – Fettucine Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings), Burnt Cheese Cookie (5x Solid Almond M Toppings), and Financier Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings)
  • DPS  Creme Brulee Cookie (5x Searing Raspberry M Toppings)
  • Healer/Support – Snapdragon Cookie (5x Swift Chocolate M Toppings)
  • Treasure Items – Squishy Jelly Watch or Sleepyhead’s Jelly Watch, Dream Conductor’s Whistle, and Librarian’s Enchanted Robes
