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.

Emblem Thoughts

Thrust: A long range option for T. Sword. Also for a thrust emblem, the damage on it is quite high compared to say the I. Sword and Cudgel thrust attacks. Good for inflicting elements.

Pierce: A little slow, but it has element. Can be used to kill troops although the range is a little deceiving. It doesn't go as far as it looks it should.

Crescent: Very good for killing troops and defeat in general. Can also be used to interrupt enemy attacks as the range is farther than it looks.

Moon: Good for questing and killing musou generals. It can also hurt your allies so be careful when using it. But you can use it to purposefully put yourself or an ally into red health.

Fan: Good damage and elemental activation can be used to on enemies with lightning or wind orbs. Howevever, with the Phoenix advanced skill, this attack loses its unique advantages compared to other attacks.

Eclipse: An okay emblem, but if you combo someone with N1-->N5 attacks and then do the eclipse attack, the person can jump and kind of avoid it or block it.


Out of the ruler sword movesets, the Tyrant Sword is one of the better ones for confront. The Phoenix advanced skill, good jump charge, and devastating musou are its primary advantages. Also with attack and defense on slots 3 and 2 respectively it is a good weapon for rushing during the early parts of the battle.

The jump charge is very good for interrupting enemy attacks and following up with your own combo. With Phoenix, the jump charge also can be used to inflict elemental attacks on enemies.

The musou attack is one of those ground musous. So someone can get out of the musou by activating their own musou while being hit. However, if you manage to catch someone without a full musou bar, then you can inflict 100% damage on them unlike most other musous that juggle. Due to the fact that this musou keeps enemies grounded. With an attack x2 this can be very very devastating. If you have your musou ready, target people in battle that do not have a full musou bar. The musou attack of the Tyrant Sword seems to increase by 2 hits for every 50 points of musou. When you use the true musou, you will roll backwards after your last attack. So if you want to aim your last attack so you roll away into a safe position and not into an enemy.

The C3 is very fast and can be used to get around a blocking opponent if you know how to control it. However, if you do not control it right you may allow for an opening for your opponent to jump away or block during the middle of the attack.


Use Crescent on C1 if you have it.


An adequate capture weapon as well. Make sure to have Crescent on C1 for killing troops. The damage stat on this weapon is quite high so don't have to temper too much damage on this.
