The coolest Fortnite Mythic skins may only provide an edge in the game if you were already using the infamous superhero skin, but having them will give you bragging rights among your friends and fellow players.
From iconic crossover characters like the Scarlet Witch and Master Chief from Halo to original characters like the banana-human hybrid Peely and even Agent Jonesy himself, everyone has a favorite skin they love coming back to.
After playing the game regularly since its 2017 release, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite Fortnite skins. Keep an eye on the shop, as some of these may come back.
1. Lexa Skin
Regarding the original Fortnite skins, Lexa has quickly become a fan favorite. Lexa has surpassed all other recent unique Fortnite skins in terms of popularity. The wide eyes and pink hair give her the appearance of an anime girl. Her design is reminiscent of a cel-shaded anime.
The highlight of unlocking Lexa is the Hunter Protocol emote built right into her that “sets mechafusion levels to maximum” and allows users to completely alter her appearance, turning her into a robotic hunter.
2. Joy Skin
The Joy skin is one of the most distinct Fortnite skins you can buy since it features an in-game emote inspired by the smash track Kiss Me More by DahjaCat and SZA.
It’s good that you receive a popular song emote with your skin because those usually cost a lot of V-Bucks to buy separately. Plus, it’s a moving emote, so you can roller skate around while you jam out.
3. Spider-Man Skin
Fans of Marvel characters waited months for the Fortnite skin of their dreams, and it eventually arrived with Spider-Man in Chapter 3 of the Season 1 Battle Pass, along with the Web-Shooter equipment that allowed them to swing around the Island.
Even more possibilities for players to take on the famous superhero role were added a few weeks later when a Spider-Man modeled on Tom Holland’s Peter Parker from the Marvel Cinematic Universe was launched in the Item Shop.
4. Renegade Raider Skin
While the design of the Renegade Raider isn’t very noteworthy, the fact that it was only ever available as a Battle Pass reward in Season 1 of Chapter 1 makes it the rarest skin in the game’s history.
You’ll let your opponents know that you’ve been visiting The Island since it opened by simply donning this item during a match.
5. Spider-Gwen Skin
Due to the game’s overwhelming success with Spider-Man, you will eventually add other comic-based skins to the store. Spider-Gwen became available as a Level 100 Battle Pass skin in Chapter 3: Season 4.
Based on the character from the animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, this Spider-Gwen (also known as Gwen Stacey or Spider-Woman) is a female version of the web-slinger. This crossover skin is spot-on in terms of aesthetic accuracy compared to others in the Fortnite community.
6. Naruto Skin
The anime art style of Naruto fits perfectly into the visual aesthetic of Fortnite. As a fan-favorite ninja from Konohagakure, Naruto was one of the most anticipated skins for Fortnite. Months of speculation and teases culminated in the appearance of the anime icon, complete with cosplayed accessories and a throwable Kunai.
Better still, you could buy Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi as a team from the game’s store. However, as this list may only accommodate one Naruto character, that honor goes to the guy himself.
