There’s no avoiding it: You’re going to take damage in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. That damage will carry over into the next fight and the next, until you reach the end of a chapter — at which point all of your heroes are restored to full health. Can you heal your heroes in between battles in the same chapter? Well, the answer is mostly no. In this guide, we’ll teach you how to heal.
The only way to heal your heroes between the battles in a chapter is to find a mushroom. These restore hit points to the three heroes in your party, but they are frustratingly rare. You can increase the amount of mushroom-induced healing with a skill in each character’s skill tree to make it more useful, but you’re not going to find them very often, so don’t count on one showing up when you need it most.
Two characters have healing abilities that you can trigger during fights.
- Rabbid Peach has a heal technique that will restore hit points to any heroes in range.
- (Regular) Peach has a skill that causes her to heal anyone in a small area around her when she lands after a team jump.
Both of these skills are great for bolstering your heroes in the middle of a fight or, if it’s the very first thing you do, before a fight. But the number of hit points they restore are limited by the number of power orbs you’ve invested in that particular branch of their skill trees, so they’re also difficult to rely on.
Restarting the chapter (or returning to Peach’s Castle)
There’s one more way to heal, but it’s kind of a nuclear option. It’s also the only sure way to restore all of your heroes to full health.
From the pause menu, you can choose to either restart chapter or to quit to Peach’s castle (which is the same result with more running). This will reset your progress in the current chapter — meaning you have to run through all of the battles again — but it lets you start with full health so you can, hopefully, do better next time.
