Item: Gives 1 extra second in bonus time
+9: Gives 2 extra seconds in bonus time
Hand Candy: Sucker
Name: Cream Cookie
To Unlock: Reach level 8
Ability: Health lasts 10-17% longer
Notes: I used this cookie for way too long when I started playing. Brain Gum is like twice as effective! Skater level 2 trumps her. So does any S class cookie. And the Zombie.
Item: Makes health last 3% longer
+9: Makes health last 4% longer
Hand Candy: Old lady cane with a Granny Smith Apple for a tennis ball
\Name: Cloud Cookie
To Unlock: Get 5 pets
Ability: Power-ups last 15-35% longer
Notes: This cookie is not good at all. I'm not sure of its gender either. More power-up duration is good, but when that's all the cookie does it's kind of dumb.
Item: Makes power-ups last 5% longer
+9: Makes power-ups last 6% longer
Hand Candy: Rainbow Cane
Name: Butter Cream Choco Cookie
To Unlock: Get 180,000 points
Ability: Gets 5%-25% more coins
Notes: 25% more coins is a lot. He's one of the best cookies. He's also the only dark skinned cookie.
Item: Gives 3% more coins
+9: Gives 4% more coins
Hand Candy: Just a cane
Name: Coffee Cookie
To Unlock: Reach level 15

+9: Gives you 6% more health from health potions
Hand Candy: Coffee
Name: Boarder Cookie
To Unlock: Get 300,000 points
Ability: Goes 15-35% faster
Notes: He or she is the bomb.com. The skater is an essential cookie, similar to Butter Cream Choco or the Angel.
Item: Makes you go 5% faster
+9: Makes you go 10% faster
Hand Candy: Candy Cane Skateboard
Name: Princess Cookie
To Unlock: Upgrade Jellies to level 15
Ability: Takes 30%-50% less damage from collisions
Notes: You're still gonna die
Item: Reduces crash damage by 5%
+9: Reduces crash damage by 6%
Hand Candy: Royal Scepter
Name: Knight Cookie
To Unlock: Upgrade health to level 15
Ability: Goes much faster with the speed power-up... also he gets on a horse
Notes: The difference isn't noticeable at level 1, but at level 8 it's hyperspeed. Great with the garlic pet.
Item: Go 5% faster during speed power-up
+9: Go 10% faster during speed power-up
Item note: Why not get an item that makes you go 10% faster all the time... that is better until stage 13
Hand Candy: Sword-length jousting pole???
Name: Muscle Cookie
To Unlock: Get 450,000 points
Ability: Has a 50-75% chance to knock away obstacles he collides with
Notes: The rest of the time he takes damage. I'm sure anyone can see the problem with trying to use his ability.
There is a mystery boost which does the same thing as his ability (70% chance). If you use that boost with this cookie, he knocks 100% of obstacles away. He would knock 145% of obstacles away if he could.
Item: Gives 500 points when you knock away an obstacle
+9: Gives 600 points when you knock away an obstacle
Hand Candy: Beat stick
Name: Zombie Cookie
To Unlock: Get 50 friends or get it free by sending 20 cookie run invites
Ability: Comes back to life when he dies. 1x with 30 health at level 1, 8x with 17 health at level 8
Notes: Doesn't come back to life if he falls. Add up his zombie lives to know his real amount of health.
Item: Brings you back to life one time with 10-20 health (unless you fall)
Hand Candy: Bone
Name: Angel Cookie
To Unlock: Reach level 30
Ability: Magnetic force - pulls most beneficial things toward her
Notes: Definitely buy this cookie at level 30 and get her to level 8 for her item. At level 1, her power is weak.
With the item, she pulls in everything (unless you go to the top of the screen in bonus time).
Item: Gives a tiny magnetic field
+9: Gives a decent magnetic field
Item notes: You will never un-equip this item. Upgrading from +8 to +9 finally allows you to grab all the coins in bonus time, but also makes large health potions unavoidable without the size power-up (you can jump over them).
Hand Candy: Wand
Name: Ninja Cookie
To Unlock: Get 600,000 points
Ability: Extra jumps in the air
Notes: The game is designed to be played with double-jump only, so it's hard to justify using him. At level 8 you can jump 10 times without coming down. The way that works is you can fly off the screen, avoiding all obstacles. Just watch where you land...
Item: Gives 1 extra jump
+9: Gives 3 extra jumps
Hand Candy: Katana hidden in a cane
Name: Pirate Cookie
To Unlock: Get 100 friends
Ability: Upon death, he rises again as a ghost with 90-160 health that passes through all obstacles.
Notes: Pirates > Ninjas
In life, he has no special abilities. If you fall and die, you don't get the ghost. Well, you do, but the ghost dies immediately. Also, the ghost can't get health potions.
Item: Brings you back to life once with 20 health
+9: Brings you back to life once with 30 health
Item note: Works the same as the Zombie cookie's item, but gives more health
Hand Candy: Pirate Hook
Name: Skating Queen Cookie
To Unlock: Reach level 45
Ability: When you double jump, you get some points depending on what jellies you just got. You might have noticed there is a trail of sparkles behind your cookie. This is supposedly what determines the points you get.
Notes: She has to constantly double jump to get points. You are lucky to get over 9000 points in one double jump. It doesn't amount to much at the end of the game.
Item: Works exactly the same as the cookie, but gives much fewer points
+9: Gives more points than that
Hand Candy: Scepter
Name: Hero Cookie
To Unlock: Get 150 friends (i.e. buy him with crystals)
Ability: After reading a book for several seconds, he transforms into Ironman and flies with increased speed and magnetism. He is also invincible for the duration, and at the end he gets recovery time.
Notes: He's pretty much the best Cookie.
Apparently turning into Ironman gradually erases his short-term memory, because he has to read the book again to figure out how to be Ironman again.
Item: Makes your health last 5% longer
+9: 6% longer
Hand Candy: Book
Name: Cheerleader Cookie
To Unlock: Get 12 pets to max level
Ability: After you jump about 30 times, 6 cheerleaders in pyramid formation will rush in from behind you and knock away all obstacles in your path, while also throwing off coins and stars (for points). After a few seconds they quickly rush away, and you do not get recovery time. Jump 30 more times and they come back. Etc. (22 at lvl 8)
Extra bonus: Hold up! What's that green banner under the (S)? Well, I'll tell you. It means she does something even when you are using a different cookie. If you use the Hero Cookie, for instance, the Cheerleader will pop in for a second (actually like 3-4 seconds) to cheer you on and give you a little bit of health. That's after you buy her. Before you buy her, she won't do anything.
Notes: She shows up like 95% of the time. The other 5% of the time she will leave you in the lurch. She will also pop in to cheer herself on, thus being in two places at once.
Item: Your relay cookie starts with 40 more health
+9: Starts with 140 more health
Item note: see the Fairy Cookie's item
Hand Candy: Pom-poms
Name: Special Force Cookie
To Unlock: Get 10 cookies to level 8
Ability: While upright on the ground at normal speed, she fires a constant barrage of stars from her machine gun that give hella points and often destroy obstacles. If she jumps, slides, or gets a speed power-up, she doesn't shoot.
Extra bonus: While using any cookie, she pops in and calls down a missile strike which destroys all obstacles for several seconds and leaves behind stars for points. Shows up 99% of the time.
Notes: They buffed her ability recently. If there is space between the obstacles, she will usually destroy them.
Item: Gives 600 points when you knock away an obstacle
+9: Gives 700 points when you knock away an obstacle
Hand Candy: Machine Gun
Name: Ninetales Cookie
To Unlock: Reach level 55 (Only obtainable for a few days for certain Korean holidays)
Ability: After you jump 9 times she turns into a fox. Jump 9 times more and she turns back into a humanoid. Amazing. In humanoid form, all the bear jellies get hearts for eyes. Wowwwww.
Notes: I'm still figuring her out. You can get a really high score with her and her pet (20-30 million, depending on how much you crash). I think it's because of her synergy bonus with the Foxfire.
Item: When you're big, you get 30 more points from jellies, I think
+9: 60 more
Hand Candy: Fan
Name: Fairy Cookie
To Unlock: Have 5 items upgraded fully (+9)
Ability: She is similar to the Angel, but her magnetism comes from a shield. It isn't stronger at level 8. When the fairy crashes into an obstacle, she loses her shield, along with the magnetism. However, she doesn't lose health on that collision. She also gains a cast bar, and after what seems like a whole minute, gets her shield back.
Extra bonus: She pops in and gives your cookie the same shield! Well, sometimes she does. <50% of the time.
Notes: She is most likely to give you the shield when you have 5 seconds of health left. She will also pop in to give herself the shield, which acts separately to her regular shield. It will be a double shield; crash once and you will still have a shield. For other cookies, the shield will transfer to the Pirate ghost or resurrections, but not the relay cookie. ALSO -- crashing with the shield on triggers recovery time.
Item: Gives your relay cookie 50 more starting health
+9: Gives it 150 more health
Item note: Exactly like the cheerleader's item, but gives 10 more health.
Hand Candy: Wand
Name: Devil Cookie
To Unlock: Reach level 50
Ability: While playing as the devil, you will notice there are souls flying slowly on the screen. Anyway, the souls can't be attracted by magnetism and after you collect 20-ish souls, you turn into a giant, invincible, flying devil head with increased speed. It doesn't last as long as the Hero Cookie's transformation, but it works similarly.
Ability #2: In bonus time, he spreads his wings and become bigger.
Notes: He's the devil.
Item: Pink Bear Jellies give 140 more points
+9: They give 320 more points
Hand Candy: Pitch Fork
