Black orb characters appear in the middle row. They specialize in dealing damage, although some can play a more support-oriented role, like Angelia SP, Deemo or Kittyeyes.
Black orb characters have abilities that range from applying numerous status effects to dealing damage as fast as possible.
Upon death, black orb characters require 8 orbs to be revived, except for Deemo, who only requires 6 orbs to be revived, and Hestia SP and Pang SP, both require 10 orbs to be revived.
Black orb advisors mainly utilize damaging or debuffing abilities.
