"Gardener and caretaker of Enchanted Forest. Obsesses over mushrooms and is hostile towards strangers."
Cordelius Portrait

Cordelius is a Legendary Brawler who could be unlocked as a Brawl Pass reward at Tier 30 in Season 19: Enchanted Woods, or can be obtained from the Starr Road. He has moderate health, a potentially high damage output, and a very fast movement speed. His Trait allows Cordelius to passively charge his Super if an enemy Brawler is within a radius of him. He attacks by firing two mushrooms from his gardening tool. For his Super, he shoots a large mushroom that allows him and his enemy Brawler to transport them to the Shadow Realm, temporarily increasing his movement speed and decreasing his attack's reload time. Enemies affected by Cordelius' Super can't use their Super, Gadget, or Hypercharge, and Cordelius can't use either of his Gadgets in the Shadow Realm. His first Gadget, Replanting, makes Cordelius jump forward. His second Gadget, Poison Mushroom, Cordelius fires a mushroom onto an enemy that deals damage on hit. Enemies affected by Cordelius' Gadget can't attack or use their Super, Gadget, or Hypercharge. His first Star Power, Comboshrooms, increases his second attack projectile's damage on a target. His second Star Power, Mushroom Kingdom, spawns mushrooms in the Shadow Realm that heal Cordelius or damage enemies over time. His Hypercharge, Complete Darkness, slows enemies down in the Shadow Realm.

Trait

"This Brawler charges Super from staying close to opposing enemies."

Cordelius' Trait is a 6-tile circle around him. Similar to Buzz, all enemy Brawlers within this circle charge Cordelius' Super by 6.75% per second each or over 15 seconds for one enemy. He charges his Super faster if there are multiple enemies inside the radius. His Super still charges even with invisible or bush-camping enemies, but it does not charge when inside the Shadow Realm. Ally Cordeliuses will have their Trait radius shown, while enemy Cordeliuses will have their Trait radius hidden.

Attack: Mushrooms

"Cordelius shoots two mushrooms with his gardening tool, damaging enemies on hit."

Cordelius fires two mushrooms linearly in quick succession with his gardening tool, which deal moderate damage upon hitting an enemy.

Super: This Is My Domain

"Cordelius shoots a Shadow Mushroom that passes through walls and on hit transfers the target and him to the Shadow Realm for 8 seconds. Cordelius has 20% higher movement speed and 30% reload speed in the Shadow Realm."

Cordelius shoots out a large mushroom that can pass through walls and, upon hitting an enemy Brawler, it transports both of them to the Shadow Realm for 8 seconds, where they are isolated from other players. In the Shadow Realm, a countdown will appear on screen, Cordelius' movement speed is increased by 20%, and his reload speed is increased by 30%, while the enemy Brawler can use their main attacks, but neither of them can use their Supers, Gadgets, or Hypercharges. After 8 seconds, or if Cordelius or his enemy are defeated, they will no longer be in the Shadow Realm, and the countdown will stop. The Shadow Realm's environment will glow a purple tone, while Cordelius and his enemy will glow a pinkish-purple tone. Cordelius cannot charge his Super by any means in his Shadow Realm even though his Trait radius is visible. In the normal environment, Cordelius and his enemy will turn invisible, but his and enemy's allies can see where they're moving. Cordelius will receive the movement and reload speed boosts even if transported to the Shadow Realm by another Cordelius.

Gadgets

Replanting

"Cordelius jumps over a piece of terrain quickly."
GD-Cordelius1

Cordelius jumps forward in the direction he's facing, similar to Brock's Rocket Laces Gadget, allowing him to jump over walls or water. If required to cross over a larger amount of blocks or over lakes, his jumping distance will be increased up to a limit or to the nearest piece of ground. While in the air, Cordelius is completely immune to all damage besides status effects and damage applied over time. This Gadget cannot be used in the Shadow Realm.

Poison Mushroom

"Cordelius' next main attack shoots a poison mushroom that prevents the enemy from attacking for 1 second."
GD-Cordelius2
OtisSuperIcon

Upon activation, Cordelius' next attack prevents affected enemies from using any attacks, Supers, Gadgets, or Hypercharges, similar to Otis' Super, for 1 second, and will deal damage upon impact. This Gadget doesn't affect passive effects like the Speed Gear's speed boost or Bo's Circling Eagle Star Power. This Gadget works on spawnables like Nita's bear, Penny's cannon, or Jessie's turret; however, it won't affect passive turrets like 8-Bit's Turret and Pam's turret. For the whole duration, a red, crossed-out symbol will show above the head of the affected target, signifying that this effect is active, and if it hits an enemy Brawler, the affected Brawler's screen will turn a bit dark. Enemies can't shoot the ball if they are hit by his Gadget. This Gadget cannot be activated in the Shadow Realm, but it can be activated beforehand and used in the Shadow Realm. A Gadget symbol will glow above Cordelius' head signaling this Gadget's activation, as well as a glowing attack joystick. This Gadget's cooldown begins after the attack is used.

Star Powers

Comboshrooms

"Hitting the second mushrooms to the same target as the first, deals 30% extra damage."
SP-Cordelius1

This Star Power increases the second attack projectile's damage by 30% if both projectiles hit the same target. However, this doesn't take effect if one of the mushrooms hits a different target.

Mushroom Kingdom

"Cordelius spawns 3 mushrooms to the Shadow Realm after using his Super, healing allies and damaging enemies for 1400 health on pickup."
SP-Cordelius2

Three mushrooms will spawn in random places in Cordelius' Shadow Realm. If enemies pick them up, it will damage them for the same amount as his attack's mushrooms, but if Cordelius or his allies picks them up, they will heal them three ticks of health per second for 3 seconds. If an opposing Cordelius has this Star Power equipped, but Cordelius doesn't, the mushroom will damage him instead. The healing/damage doesn't scale with Power Cubes or outside buffs.

Hypercharge: Complete Darkness

"Cordelius slows down his targets when sending them to the Shadow Realm."
Cordelius-Hypercharge

When activated, Cordelius' Super slows enemies down in the Shadow Realm. He also gains a 24% speed boost, a 25% damage boost, as well as a 5% shield boost.

Tips

  • While Cordelius' Super is a powerful offensive tool, entering the Shadow Realm also leaves him unaware of his surroundings. Thus, if you find yourself on low health in the Shadow Realm, try to go to a more secluded place to retreat so that enemy Brawlers can't ambush you when your Super ends.
  • Thanks to his enhanced speed in the Shadow Realm, Cordelius can use his Super to "teleport" to other ends of the map unseen by enemy Brawlers, making him useful for getting to objective zones such as the Heist Safe or Hot Zone.
  • In a pinch, Cordelius' Super coupled with his Star Power Mushroom Kingdom can be used as a last-minute resort to heal, allowing him to slip past enemy Brawlers undetected while grabbing mushrooms to heal.
  • Thanks to his Trait and Super, Cordelius is well suited to guard places where enemy standoffs tend to occur, where he can camp behind a wall and charge his Super before using it and chasing the enemy Brawler away.
  • While Cordelius' Super prevents enemies from using Gadgets or their Supers, do note that Brawlers with Gadgets that modify their attacks retain the effects when transported to the Shadow Realm, making them more of a hassle to deal with.
    • However, although his Poison Mushroom Gadget cannot be activated in the Shadow Realm, if Cordelius activates the Gadget before entering the Shadow Realm, his next attack will still preserve the Gadget's effect even in the Shadow Realm.
  • Cordelius' Super can be used as an emergency escape if he is low on health, and his enhanced speed helps him outpace the enemy he sent to the Shadow Realm and heal before his Super ends. This can be more effective with his Mushroom Kingdom Star Power.
  • Cordelius can remove an enemy instantly, which is useful in Brawl Ball. For example, you can use the Super at the goalkeeper while kicking the ball into the goal.
    • Be careful however, as you won't be able to defend your goal either.
  • Multiple Brawlers can be in the Shadow Realm at the same time. This can be helpful when a teammate is transported by an opposing Cordelius.
    • Keep in mind that if one of the two Brawlers that entered the Shadow Realm together is defeated by a third party, the other one will still remain there until defeated or until their time is out.
    • Furthermore, it's advised for one not to send another Cordelius to the Shadow Realm as all Cordeliuses present will receive buffs no matter whose Super they were affected by, essentially negating any advantage you'd have.
