"Frank swings his hammer at enemies, sending a shockwave. His Super is an especially powerful blow that stuns enemies!"
Frank Portrait

Frank is an Epic Brawler who attacks with a large hammer, sending a wave that can hit multiple enemies. Frank also has very high health, allowing him to withstand a lot of damage. His Super can stun enemies for a decent amount of time, leaving them vulnerable to attacks from him or his teammates. His Gadget, Active Noise Canceling, allows him to become immune to stuns, slows and knockbacks for 1.5 seconds. His first Star Power, Power Grab, gives him a 50% damage increase for 12 seconds after he defeats an enemy Brawler and his second Star Power, Sponge, increases his maximum health by 1100.

Attack: Hammer Hit

"Frank takes a while to wind up his hammer blow, but the hit is so hard it sends a shockwave."
Frank smashes the ground with his hammer, sending a shockwave that can hit multiple enemies. The effect appears similar to Nita's blasts multiplied by 4. However, it takes a while for him to attack, at 0.5 seconds, leaving Frank vulnerable as he cannot move while attacking. If hit with a stun or a knock back, Frank's attack will be cancelled.

Super: Stunning Blow

"Frank's greatest hit sends a shockwave that destroys environment and stuns enemies for a while."
Frank winds up a swing with his hammer, sending a bigger shockwave that can break obstacles, hitting multiple enemies and stunning them for 2 seconds and rendering them completely vulnerable. Frank's Super can be cancelled during his wind-up if he is stunned or knocked back (Shelly's Super, for example).

Gadget: Active Noise Canceling

"Frank clears any disabling effect on himself, and momentarily becomes immune to stuns, slows and knockbacks."
Upon activation, Frank becomes immune to stuns, slows, and knockbacks for 1.5 seconds. This effect persists while he attacks.

Star Powers

Power Grab

"Frank steals the power of a Brawler he defeats, increasing his damage by 50% for 12 seconds!"
Frank will get a damage boost of 50% for 12 seconds after defeating an enemy Brawler, for a total of 2520 damage while his Star Power is active. He will glow purple during this time, indicating that it is activated.

Sponge

"Frank gains +1100 health."
Frank gains +1100 health, increasing his max health to 10060. This is also affected by the healing process.

Tips

  • Frank has a large damage output, but at a huge delay. To take advantage of his damage without putting yourself in danger, try to ambush Brawlers one on one from the grass. This is especially relevant for Frank's Super. The delay is even bigger, but if you are in the grass, your opponent will not have too much time to react to your attack.
  • Frank's attack makes him stop moving. If you are in danger of dying and running away from an opponent, especially a short-ranged Brawler, do not attack them. This will easily allow them to defeat you. Instead, rely on Frank's fast movement speed to find cover.
  • Frank's range is relatively short, and the fact that he stops to attack makes it even shorter against fleeing enemies. For this reason, avoid chasing enemies far away from you.
  • In Brawl Ball, Frank can charge his Super quickly at the start of a round due to how close each team spawns near each other, and then break the wall covering the goal to make goals much easier. For the same reason, he is great at super-throwing the ball while having a Super since it's so easy to charge up.
  • Use Frank's Super when your teammates can capitalize on it as well. If used right, it can allow your team to wipe out the enemy team.
  • Frank is vulnerable to longer-ranged Brawlers, but is incredibly effective against tanks, like Bibi, El Primo and Rosa. This is because he can do massive amounts of damage to the tanks as they get closer and closer to him, allowing him to charge his super quickly.
  • Frank's Super can be interrupted by knock-back, which many Supers inflict, such as Gravity, Super Shell, Magic Hand, Big Barrel o' Boom, etc.
  • Since Frank's Super can be interrupted, you can always bait out those interrupts by dragging your Super, canceling it and then doing a regular attack. On screen you will be yellow, it will appear like you are about to use your Super, and doing the animation of the attack, but instead you are just doing a regular attack.
  • When your Super and your main attacks are fully charged, use your Super first, paralyzing the enemy and holding them still while you finish them off with your main attacks while they have no way of fighting back.
  • A great team when playing Showdown or Brawl Ball is Frank with Tara. Wait until both of you have your Super attacks. Once that is done, look for a group of enemy players. Let Tara throw her Super while Frank stuns all of the enemies in the group.
  • If the enemy team has reliable stun or knock-back capabilities (e.g Shelly, El Primo, etc...), Frank should use his Gadget before performing his Super to prevent them from cancelling it with a stun. However, Frank's Gadget will not cancel out Gene's Super or Sprout's wall knock-back, so Frank must be wary when they have their Supers.
  • Frank is not recommended in Big Game as stuns are much less powerful against the Big Boss. Also, when he is the Big Boss, Shelly can continually super-stack on Frank before he can perform an attack.
