"Rosa is a botanist with a strong connection to plants. She's also a boxer, and won't hesitate to punch one of her specimens if it goes out of control!"
Rosa Portrait

Rosa is a Rare Brawler who has high health and a high damage output. Rosa's Trait allows her to charge her Super from enemies damaging her. Her attack is a flurry of three short-ranged punches from her boxing gloves. Her Super grants her a momentary but significant damage-reduction shield. Her first Gadget, Grow Light, spawns bushes around herself. Her second Gadget, Unfriendly Bushes, instantly slows and slightly damages all enemies inside bushes. Her first Star Power, Plant Life, heals her over time when she's inside bushes. Her second Star Power, Thorny Gloves, adds extra damage to her attack while her Super is active. Her Hypercharge, Grasping Roots, creates a temporary zone in a circular area around her that slows enemies down inside it.

Trait

"This Brawler charges Super from damage received."

Whenever Rosa takes damage from enemy Brawlers or spawnables, she charges her Super. The Super charge rate depends on the damage the enemy deals. It takes 2.4x Rosa's max health of damage to charge her Super completely, and all damage is calculated after shielding and other effects.

Attack: Hands of Stone

"Rosa throws a flurry of powerful punches with perfect technique!"

Rosa throws a flurry of three short-ranged, piercing punches in a wide arc, dealing moderately high damage. Since she has a short range, Rosa must maintain close range of her targets in order to damage them. The attack takes 1.1 seconds to complete, which slightly hinders her ability to deal immediate damage.

Super: Strong Stuff

"Rosa gets a second skin of tough vine for 3 seconds, decreasing all damage received by 70% for the duration."

Upon activation, Rosa gains a shield that reduces all damage she takes by 70% for 3 seconds, along with an altered appearance.

Gadgets

Grow Light

"Rosa fertilizes the ground around her and bushes instantly grow to provide great cover."
GD-Rosa1

Upon activation, Rosa instantly grows a 3-by-3 section of bushes where she is standing. These bushes stay indefinitely unless they are destroyed by any obstacle-destroying ability, the Supers of Sprout or Amber, after a goal is scored in Brawl Ball, or after a round is over (in certain events). They can't grow over obstacles or beneath the safe in Heist. The bushes also give off golden particles to show that they are Rosa'a bushes.

Unfriendly Bushes

"All opponents hiding in bushes take 276 damage and get slowed down for 3 seconds."
GD-Rosa2

When activated, all bushes briefly turn purple and enemies inside bushes immediately take 276 damage and get slowed for 3 seconds. Since the damage briefly reveals them, this Gadget is great for detecting enemies inside bushes.

Star Powers

Plant Life

"Rosa recovers 300 health per second when inside a bush."
SP-Rosa1

Rosa heals 300 health for every second she's inside a bush.

Thorny Gloves

"Rosa's punches gain +276 damage during her Super."
SP-Rosa2

While Rosa's Super is active, Rosa's attack gains 276 extra damage per punch, giving a total of 828 more damage per attack.

Hypercharge: Grasping Roots

"Rosa slows down all nearby enemies while her Super is active."
Rosa-Hypercharge

When activated, Rosa's Super slows enemies down in a 4.33-tile radius around herself that moves with her. The area-of-effect disappears when her Super is inactive. She also gains a 25% speed and shield boost, as well as a 5% damage boost.

Mutation

This section describes content that has been replaced or removed from the game. This information is kept here for historical purposes.
"Rosa spawns bushes around her when using Strong Stuff."
Mutation

Rosa spawned a 6x6 square of bushes without the corners whenever she used her Super. They acted like regular bushes that allies and enemies could hide in and they can be destroyed. Like her Grow Light Gadget, the bushes were destroyed at the beginning of a new round. Also like this Gadget, the bushes gave off golden particles to differentiate between these bushes and regular ones.

Tips

Game Modes and Maps

  • Rosa excels in 3v3 modes, especially in Gem Grab and Hot Zone. She works well as a Gem carrier in Gem Grab because of her fast movement speed, healing abilities, high damage output, and high health. She can also be used to protect and tank shots for allied Gem carriers. Because she excels in close-quarters combat but out-ranges the other melee Brawlers in the game, she's also a decent choice for Hot Zone. She's also a decent pick for Siege and Heist due to her high health, extreme survivability, and high damage output.
  • In Duo Showdown, be sure to have a team composition that can cover Rosa's weakness of range. The most obvious choices are any mid/long-ranged Brawlers, these include Brock, Piper, Colt, or even Carl in some maps.
  • In Brawl Ball, you can use her Super before collecting the ball and then walk the ball into the goal to score. Her high health, above-average movement speed and ability to perform team-wipes with her Super and Hypercharge makes her very viable in this mode. However, be wary while walking the ball into the goal because many Brawlers have stuns, pulls, pushbacks, or knockbacks that can prevent you from scoring.
  • Rosa thrives in Showdown. When using her Super, she can take on Brawlers like Bull who would normally defeat her in a close-quarters fight by utilizing the enormous damage reduction provided by her Super and still expect to come out on top. Rosa is also an excellent bush-camper when her Plant Life Star Power is equipped. With Plant Life, she can hide in bushes in which she heals and can attack nearby enemies while healing.

Recommended Build

  • Rosa's Grow Light Gadget can be used to add and connect bushes to make it easier for her to ambush enemies. When paired with her Plant Life Star Power, Rosa can use her Grow Light Gadget to passively heal herself when wounded in battle.
  • Rosa's Unfriendly Bushes Gadget can be used to briefly reveal all enemies hiding in bushes due to it dealing 276 damage at an indefinite range. Combined with a Speed Gear, Rosa can locate and engage the enemy quickly due to the enemy being slowed down and the speed boost from the Speed Gear.
  • It is advisable to use Rosa's Plant Life Star Power on maps where there are many bushes and her Thorny Gloves Star Power on maps where there are less bushes.
  • Rosa's Plant Life Star Power allows her to heal 300 health per second while in a bush. Be sure to use this when fighting another Rosa which allows her to out-heal the enemy while still damaging them. She can even use Plant Life to counter tick damage such as Crow's poison.

Strategies

  • If she can surprise the other team (in any mode) while her Super is active, Rosa can continuously chain Supers, wiping the enemy team. However, remember the shield doesn't make her invincible and it's possible for defeat against a high-damaging team composition containing the likes of Nani or Griff.

Other

  • Rosa and El Primo have the same movement speed, but Rosa's range is slightly longer and wider, meaning that she's able to escape and attack him while being out of his range. This technique can also be used when fighting opposing Rosas. Walk away from the Rosa while also attacking towards them, and they should walk into your punches. You should also avoid attacking when the Rosa uses her shield, as you'll waste ammo and deal little damage to the opposing Rosa.
  • Rosa's Super has an extremely high damage reduction but has a rather short duration, so make sure not to overestimate its power, especially if you're on low health. However, if you're in a tough situation, immediately activate her Super so you can attack the enemy with ease while taking little damage, which can prevent an inadvertent loss. This gives you a better chance of staying alive or even defeating the enemy.
  • Rosa is a tank, so she counters assassins under the right circumstances. With the exception of Edgar, you can usually engage other assassins at 1-tile distance and defeat them, so always maintain close quarters with them. In the case of Edgar, keep a few tiles distance because he out-damages Rosa while she out-ranges him.
  • Rosa is easily countered by control Brawlers, which are mid-range Brawlers that can pushback, knockback, pull, slow, or stun with their Supers, have a high damage output and usually low health, such as Emz and Spike. It's best to avoid these Brawlers unless you know the odds are in your favor.
