Tanks heroes are the most durable among all in mobile legends. These front-line giants help in attacking enemies. They're usually found leading the charge, choosing the right times and situations to initiate aggression. Many tanks can also protect their more fragile teammates by stunning or pushing around dangerous foes and limiting their damage potential. In mobile legends, most classes of heroes are really versatile in terms of abilities and with the item crafting variations a "tank" can be played as a DPS if you choose the right equipment. Usually, tanks are laning on the bottom tower. Tank has high defense and hit point, but low damage. When used properly, a tank could be the strongest hero in the game.

Tanks are classified into three types: pure, primary, and secondary.

Pure tanks

Because they have no other role, these heroes are full Tanks.

Primary tanks

These heroes are mainly Tanks who can also be used for a different purpose.

Secondary tanks

Because they are used in a different way than a Tank's main purpose, these heroes are half-Tanks.
