Sweet and feisty candies.

In Cookie Run Kingdom, you use cookies in battle. Some cookies have their own Magic Candies, which provide stat boosts.

Not all cookies have their own Magic Candies, meaning some can have more potential than others. Here’s our tier list of all the Magic Candies in Cookie Run Kingdom.

What are Magic Candies in Cookie Run Kingdom?

Magic Candies are boost items that only specific cookies have, and they can be upgraded to enhance their skill. Once a Magic Candy is upgraded, the bonus stats the cookies can have for their abilities will also increase, and more effects can be unlocked as the Magic Candy level goes higher.

Mainly a damager, Frost Queen Cookie’s ability Freezing Squall can deal lots of damage in a single hit to enemies, as well as Freeze debuffs which stop the cooldown of their abilities. Increasing the level of Frost Queen Cookie’s Magic Candy means more Ice damage and debuff effects, especially if certain synergies can be unlocked when using other Ice-type Cookies.

Black Pearl Cookie – Duskgloom Sovereign

Black Pearl Cookie is known as one of the game’s most powerful cookies and a reliable damage-dealer. Her ability, Duskgloom Sovereign, dishes out more damage when her Magic Candy is enhanced. The periodic damage she inflicts with her whirlpool is painful. Her Terror of the Abyss debuff also impacts the enemies’ attack speed.

Financier Cookie – Paladin Protection

If you want to use a consistent tanky cookie, Financier Cookie is for you. Her Paladin Protection ability gives shield and healing to an ally cookie with the highest attack while also dealing area damage whenever Financier Cookie uses her regular attack. Upgrading her Magic Candy will increase both the healing and damage she provides.

Cream Puff Cookie – Jellius Extremus!

Cream Puff Cookie is one of the best healers in the game with her ability, Jellius Extreme! And in addition to her healing prowess, she also increases the CRIT chances of her ally cookies, especially if you use toppings that give bonus CRIT stats to her. This makes Cream Puff Cookie unstoppable when it comes to healing her teammates and adding more layers of damage against the enemies.

Standout Magic Candies in PvE

Parfait Cookie – Paru-Paru-Parfait!

Parfait Cookie uses her Paru-Paru-Parfait! ability to heal and give defense buffs to her ally cookies. This allows her to give an added shield to the cookies she heals once they overlap their HP. Enhancing Parfait Cookie’s Magic Candy provides more healing and possible shields for her allies.

Captain Caviar Cookie – Black Shark Torpedo

An established Bomber cookie in the game, Captain Caviar Cookie’s ability, Black Shark Torpedo, shoots at enemies while giving his allies Debuff Resistance. The torpedo shots will target the enemy with the lowest HP, and area damage will be dealt as the shots land and explode. You can upgrade Captain Caviar Cookie’s Magic Candy for more damage.

Squid Ink Cookie – Ink Tentacle Slap

Squid Ink Cookie only does one thing—it deals damage through its tentacle slaps. Once you increase its Magic Candy’s stats, it becomes a force to be reckoned with, especially if you use tank and healer cookies in your team.
