Player takes turns playing three different characters, who will have their own future counterpart, and can use each character's unique power. Each character has a different style of gaming. For example, Niki's levels are the most typical fighting game levels, while Hiro's levels are more strategic.
- Hiro Nakamura: Can slow down time until his power bar reaches zero. If the player is able to collect three bonus power-ups, Hiro can stop time within a time limit. He is incapable of fighting.
- Peter Petrelli: Is able to use pyrokinesis to defeat Sylar. He can emit fireballs, which will cost him around half of the power bar. He can also use telekinesis*, absorbed from Sylar, and electromagnetism.*
- Niki Sanders: Has superhuman strength. She can lift slot machines and break tables without using her power bar. Her alter-ego, Jessica, is capable of killing everyone who appears on the screen in one instance. Her power bar, however, will be emptied instantly. She is capable of wielding guns too.
- Future Hiro Nakamura: A skilled swordsman, he can slow down time until his power bar reaches zero. He is able to kill guards only with one hit after he slowed down time.
- Future Peter Petrelli: Can use telekinesis against guards and other objects. He can produce a "shockwave" which kills every enemy on screen.
