Cookie Run: Kingdom Hollyberry Cookie Guide: How to unlock, Best Toppings, and more

Tips to use the Hollyberry Cookie efficiently!

Cookie Run: Kingdom introduced Hollyberry Cookie which is an Ancient Defense Cookie that has been released back in Version 2.0 ‘Heart of Courage and Passion’. Hollyberry quickly fell off the Tier lists due to her underwhelming kit multipliers. In the latest patch of Version 4.0, Hollyberry in addition to Pure Vanilla Cookie has received a major buff on her kit and has now become a popular Cookie to use in battles. This guide will be helping you with how to build Hollyberry Cookie, how to obtain her, and the ways to level her up. 

Hollyberry is an Ancient Cookie and hence can be obtained through the Gacha. Legendary and the Cookies above the Rarity gets their Limited Rate up Banner when they are initially released, where players need to obtain exclusive wish currency to pull for them. There is a pity system in these Rate-Up Banners hence players can get the guaranteed Cookie in the 250th pull. Due to Hollyberry Cookie’s Rarity, her Soulstones will be available to buy after a few patches from her initial release either through the form of Shops or in Limited events. There are many ways to obtain her Soulstones such as, 

  • Kingdom Arena Medal Shop: Available exclusively through the Kingdom Arena. Players have to participate in PvP battles and ultimately win to obtain the Medals of Victory currency to exchange with the Soulstones. Only 1 Ancient Soulstone Cookie can be exchanged in every Shop Reset lasting 3 days. 
  • Might of the Ancients: Version 4.0 introduced a new permanent event feature where players can obtain a free Ancient by selecting only one of the following: Hollyberry Cookie, Pure Vanilla Cookie, and Dark Cacao Cookie. Once you select your desired Ancient Cookie, players have to complete a series of objectives and tasks to fully use the Ancient Cookie on PvPs and World Exploration. Be sure to choose wisely as once players choose the Ancient, they cannot change it back. 

What else could result in such an overwhelming passion if not the reddest hollyberries, ripened under the hottest summer sunlight? Hollyberry Cookie believes that every friendship, like every victory, should be triumphant. After all, there is nothing in the world as hard as trust! Not even the all-enduring Hollyberry Shield with which she swore to protect her beloved ones.

It is said that Hollyberry Cookie leading a charge onto the battlefield is the most inspiring view. A view that inspires to repay with trust to those who put trust in you.


Hollyberry Cookie’s Costume has a special effect if it is equipped during battles. When her Skill is used, a flurry of golden leaves and mistletoe will be blown behind her.

Oath on the Shield
Let out a war cry of fury! Hollyberry Cookie charges forward and becomes a shield to her Cookie allies, absorbing a portion of the damage they take, excluding periodic and indirect damage. While her DMG Focus is active, she will reduce CRIT received by her allies and herself, and gain a stack of Seed of Life for every CRIT hit she receives.

Once she gains enough Seed of Life stacks, the Seed of Life will bloom into Berry of Life, enhancing the succeeding skill. The cooldown for Hollyberry Cookie’s first skill is reduced, allowing her to use it faster. While Hollyberry Cookie is using her skill, she will briefly become resistant to interrupting effects. (17s Cooldown)
Hollyberry will first initially use her skill with a 1 second cooldown and can withstand any damage taken by her allies by absorbing their damage onto herself.

Hollyberry Cookie is a defense Cookie that received a huge buff in the 4.0 version that reduced her cooldown and increased her damage output. Some of the notable go-to Toppings would be the Swift Chocolate Toppings to reduce her cooldown.

Players can also utilize the full 5 sets of Solid Almond Toppings to increase their DMG resistance inflicted by the enemies. It is recommended that players prioritize giving her the full set of Solid Almond Toppings instead of the Swift Chocolate Toppings.

Final Thoughts

Hollyberry Cookie despite being an Ancient has had a rocky start in the META where rarities below her work exceptionally well in the Defense roster. Now with the added huge buff in Version 4.0, she quickly went up the ranks and is now one of the best Defense cookies in the game. Just like in any popular team comps, Hollyberry is paired with other Defense cookies to strengthen the defenses and provide adequate shielding.
