[Top 3] TFT Best Nunu Builds That Are Powerful

Best Nunu Builds in TFT
Saving the world is so much fun!

Nunu and his Willump are back to TFT, but this time it’s not about devouring champions; instead, they run through the whole board with their ice ball that keeps getting bigger every time they go to an end.

Nunu is a 5-cost champion that can deal tonnes of damage if placed with the right items as he keeps passing through enemies, dealing unstoppable damage.

This article is a full guide on how to best place Nunu in TFT to make sure you score your ice ball and get to first place.

Let's kick bad guy butt! *laughs* 'Cause they never wear butt armor!

Nunu is one of the high-cost champions that are worth it as he shares both the Gadgeteen trait, which if activated grants you a random temporary item that is enhanced, and the Mascot trait, which makes him heal a lot while dealing massive damage.

He is often used as a mascot rather than a gadget, as it scales in late game and guarantees you the victory, so if you are searching for the right builds and items for Nunu, we will be discussing them below.

Best comps for Nunu



  • 6 Mascots
  • 3 Supers
  • 2 Heart
  • 1 Civilian

With the entire team being 1-2 cost, this comp is one of the slower rerolls you will need to perform once you reach 50 gold.

This squad is built around the Mascot trait, which gives your team much too much healing power.

Optimal group for this build:

1-Galio is the first Civilian and Mascot, enabling your team to produce extra health and mana.

2-Yummi is the main cause of damage because she has the Mascot attribute and deals a lot of damage as a member of the Heart.

3-Alistar is a very capable frontline who shares the team's mascot feature.

4-While a Mascot member, Nasus would take a lot of harm.

5-Since he has the team's Supers and Heart traits, member 6-Lee Sin is crucial.

6-In addition to being a dependable tank, Malphite is a skilled member of the Supers.

7-Gangplank, a member of the Supers, can do a tonne of damage when equipped with the right gear.



  • 1 Threat
  • 3 Aegis
  • 3 Mecha: Prime
  • 2 Defender
  • 2 Mascot
  • 1 Ace

This team revolves around the upgraded Miss Fortune, who now delivers a tonne of damage and kills opponents.

Since Sett will be your primary frontline and all of the main champions cost 4 gold or more, this is a relatively quick level 8 reroll.

Top team in this competition:

1. Miss Fortune, an Ace member who plays on the sidelines, will be the primary damage dealer.

2-As a chosen Mecha: Prime, Sett will serve as your primary frontline in order to increase his hit points.

3-As he has the Mascot trait, which heals the entire team and deals unstoppable damage to everyone on the board, Nunu will be a fantastic choice.

4-Urgot generates a gigantic wave that knocks and stuns foes, and he is a Threat member who can be deadly if equipped with the correct equipment.

5-Together with the rest of the team, Alistar would share both the Aegis and Mascot attributes.

6-Ekko would take a lot of damage while acting as an aegis, and when his spell is cast, he also acquires a shield.

7-For Sett as a Mecha: Prime, Wukong will give up all of his HP and turn on the Defender trait.

8-Leona adds to the Aegis trait while also sacrificing all of her health for Sett, exactly like Wukong did.



  • 1 Threat
  • 3 Aegis
  • 2 Brawler
  • 2 Mascot
  • 2 Sureshot
  • 1 Ace
  • 1 Civilian

Sejuani and the other brawlers are in the frontline to take damage, while Samira, Nunu, and Urgot alternate as the main damage dealers.

With a robust economy and a quick level 8 reroll, you can quickly find the optimal combination.

Optimal group for these builds:

1-As a member of Ace and Sureshot, Samira will be your primary damage dealer.

2-Urgot will have a significant impact because, as a threat member, he will do a tonne of damage.

3-The Sureshot and Civilian attributes will be activated by Sivir, which will have a significant effect on your team.

4-As a mascot, Nunu will work well for your squad and deliver a tonne of harm to opponents.

5-Ekko is a fantastic frontline player who enhances the Aegis attribute.

6-Since Vi is a brawler, she will take greater damage.

7-One of the best frontlines for a brawler, Sejuani, will serve as the main frontline to defend your squad.

8-Alistar is a joker and an Aegis member, both of which will be very beneficial to your team.
