  • Knockback - Sends the enemy backwards away from you. Usually ending a combo.
  • Launch - Knocks the enemy up in the air setting them up for a juggle.
  • Rotation Lock - Inability to turn your character during the animation.
  • Element - If weapon is imbued with an orb or element, the element can be activated on this attack.
  • SA - Super Armor status. Cannot be flinched by normal attacks while performing this. Indicated by little swirly sparks around your body.
  • "O" indicates the attack has this effect on the enemy. "X" means this attack does not have elemental activation.

Musou Length

This table lists the musou stat and how much musou is needed to increase the number of hits in your musou. (Assuming you use the full bar when you musou.) Do note that the musou stat values here may not necessarily be the lowest threshold needed on the musou stat to increase the number of musou hits. It's just a guaranteed stat that has been tested.

  • D = Dash attack, N# = Normal attack, E# = Evolution attack, JN = Jump Normal, JC = Jump Charge, C# = Charge attack, True = True Musou.
  • What do these values mean? They determine how much damage you do per swing. Refer to the Battle Mechanics page for more details.
  • The N in the values represents each hit in multi-hit attacks such as jump charges, C3s, and Musous. The final number is usually the knockback finisher of the combo(if it has one).
  • "Base" represents the damage value of the attack by itself. The "Combo" damage value represents the total sum if you had connected with the all previous attack strings. (So C3 combo value is the total value of N1+N2+C3 values)
  • E8 always causes the enemy to be juggled often causing the E9 hit to do 50% damage. The value that is written in the table is the estimated value that E9 would cause if the enemy was not being juggled.

Ice or Wind You can resist any punishment. Apply elements on enemies to allow your team mates kill them.

Note: Builds listed here are the number of stars you should put in each stat. The order goes: Attack, Damage, Defense, Life, Musou. So a build of "43320" means to put: 4 stars in attack, 3 stars in damage, 3 stars in Defense, 2 stars in Life, and 0 stars in Musou.



Emblem Thoughts


Pierce: very easy to jump over the projectiles that travel along the ground leaving you open for counter attacks

Crescent: super armor + AOE ( 1, 2 then AOE). Great for flasking up from troops and breaking crowds during PVP matches. Remember this move is only for short to mid range as the AOE doesn't have super armor.

Moon: long AOE range plus element in C6, can be used to apply element on multiple enemies.

Fan: great for long range attacks with ability to shoot two cones



Keep distance and use Ice, Lightning or Wind to provide support with C3 and Fan


Use Crescent(preferred) or Moon as C1 while using speed buffers to overcome the lack of speed on B. blade.
