Styles are the name for the Blankos classes. Every Style will have Power Moves (active skills), Perks (passive skills), and even special Hidden Perks you unlock just by leveling and GradeUPs for your Blanko. In addition to these, there are also base skills like a melee attack and sprint which all Blankos will have

Note that skills can also be altered via modifiers which allow the skill to act/behave slightly different.

The number of Styles might be different from Season to Season. You might see Styles from older Seasons become available again; you may also see similar Styles but potentially with new Power Moves and/or Perks.

In a future update, it is planned that Skill MashUPs, which will allow you to customize and combine the skills of your Blankos even further will be introduced.

Styles & Skills were implemented into Blankos Block Party as of June 2nd, 2021. If you’d like to read up on the legacy skill and class system, click here.

Note that all videos in this article are prior to Early Access Patch 3 on 30th September 2021, where the Blanko Levels changed from 1 to 5, to 1 to 15.

Power Moves

When you unbox a new Blanko you’ll get a one-time opportunity to choose two Power Moves for it, but here’s the trick—out of the box, Power Moves only come in a pair called your Style.

Styles

Style is a classification determined by the types of Power Moves assigned to your Blanko. Each Power Move belongs to a family or Set that shares the same basic characteristics—Spin, Boost, Dash, Ground Pound, Shield, Trap, and Melee. New Styles and Sets may pop up from time to time and old ones might retire, so fit your Blankos with the best moves while you can!

N.O.O.B Style

On September 14th, 2022 for the Early Access Patch 7, the following changes were implemented:

Foundation Perks

  • Removed Quick Comeback (Respawn from knockout dramatically faster)
  • Removed Bounceback (Recover from being stunned twice as fast)
  • Added Invigorated: Spawn with a 50 health shield that lasts 15 seconds.
  • Added Boxer: Shove deals +5 damage

Trickle Style – Trickster

On September 14th, 2022 for the Early Access Patch 7, the following changes were implemented:

Foundation Perks

  • Removed Quick Comeback (Respawn from knockout dramatically faster)
  • Removed Knock Block (Knockback resistance)
  • Removed Vibin’ (Regain 15 energy pers second while dancing)
  • Added Fight Training: Shove now has 3 charges
  • Added Hang On: Slow how fast you slide down walls
  • Added Bopper: Allows you to bounce off of other players’ heads

Foundation Perks

Every Blanko, even those who are New Out Of the Box (we call them N.O.O.B.s), has access to two Foundation Moves: Run and Shove. These classics never go out of style, and for good reason—they’re useful in any Block Party. Shove doesn’t use any vibe energy at all and Run is a pretty low spend, Both of these moves are essentials for your arsenal.

Specific to the Blanko Style are other Foundation Perks. Foundation Perks adjust innate things like vibes energy, health, and even Foundation Moves, or how much health your Blanko has. Power Perks allow you to modify your Power Moves directly. The best part is Perks are always working in the background.

Hidden Perks

Hidden Foundation Perks are special traits for Blankos that are discovered upon reaching specified progression milestones. These perks are selected out of a pool of possible perks. Once unlocked, these traits are permanent and cannot be changed. Currently, this system is starting with Perks, but in the near future, other unique attributes will become a part of this system.

Seasonal Styles

The number of Styles might be different from Season to Season. You might see Styles from older Seasons become available again; you may also see similar Styles but potentially with new Power Moves and/or Perks. In a future update, we plan on introducing Skill MashUPs, which will allow you to customize and combine the skills of your Blankos even further. More to come on this in a later update!

Which Season 0 Style should I pick??

Alternatively, if you aren’t very good at racing, perhaps a Wrecker or Tracer may be a better fit. Check out the video below from AyeZ which breaks down the 3 styles.

Season 0 Class Guide

Head over to this article to have a look at some Class builds for you to try for each! Note that each build will be reliant on having everything unlocked for your Blanko and will play into specific strong suits! Remember: get creative with these and make these builds your own!
