Cookies are the playable characters that possess their own unique skill, which is useful to collect coins, run longer, and gain points. Players can buy cookies with coins or crystals. Cookies are available to buy with coins after players have completed the requirement.
With the correct combination of Cookies and Pets, the pair will be granted an additional ability for players to use.

In Cookie Run: OvenBreak, Cookies are classified into five grades: Common, Rare, Epic, Special and Legendary.
- Cookies were called Breakers in OvenBreak 2, Cookie Run's spiritual predecessor.
- Unlike other games, there are more S grade than C grade Cookies, in which usually better grades are in less amounts. However the cost of S grades compared to C grades still holds true.
- Pistachio Cookie and Lime Cookie are the only Cookies thus far that require more Energy while running. Every other Cookie (except Cream Cookie due to her ability) will always drain at the same rate.
- Starting with Pistachio Cookie, the release date for Cookies released before the City of Wizards update was about 2 weeks apart instead of 4. This is likely because Devsisters wanted LINE Cookie Run to catch up to Kakao Cookie Run as soon as possible (barring Kakao being ahead by 2 or 3 Cookies depending on the time of the month). It is now back to the usual 1 Cookie per month release. At this time a new Cookie will likely be released on the last week of the month.
- The Cookie selection screen is in ascending order from rank C to L. Interestingly enough, it is in descending order for Pets (L to C).
- Most of the Cookies are holding something. The only Cookies that are not holding anything are Strawberry Cookie, Boarder Cookie, Pirate Cookie, Muay Thai Cookie, Kiwi Biker Cookie, Werewolf Cookie, Red Bean Cookie (although one can assume that he's "holding" his penguin), Dino-Sour Cookie, and Pancake Cookie.
- Cheesecake Cookie is the only Cookie that has a mole or beauty mark on her face.
- Bright Cookie, Soda Cookie, Macaron Cookie and Pancake Cookie are the only Cookies that have a blush.
- Kiwi Biker Cookie is the only Cookie that has freckles.
- Gumball Cookie, Pirate Cookie, and Zombie Cookie are the only Cookies who don't have a white outline around their eyes.
- There is always a new Cookie, sometimes two, released each month in the game. However, in January 2016, there were no new Cookies released. Reasons for this is unknown.
- In March 2016, for the first time in Cookie Run history, two cookies were released in the same month, but they were released 3 weeks apart from each other. They are Macaron Cookie and Red Bean Cookie.
