Iron Valiant is a supporter who, due to his high speed, puts up two barriers, Reflect and Light Screen, to reduce damage to allies. Base Stats themselves can participate in attacks because they are more than attackers.

Active In All High Difficulty Raid

In addition to the role of putting up walls, they can also interfere by Taunt. Since support is the main focus, the remaining three attackers should be solidified to take up the challenge of Raid.
