Soukaku's Strength

Can Gather Enemies, Buff ATK & Provide Ice Support

Soukaku can gather enemies, buff ATK and Ice DMG (Additional effects at C1 and C4) at the same time while providing Quick Assist to the next character with Fly the Flag which is activated by holding the (EX) Special Attack button. It can be used in many situations and the DMG buff is powerful.

NoteNicole, who is also as Support character that gathers enemies, has a lower chance of taking damage but Soukaku can Fly the Flag without consuming Energy.

Also Enhances DMG and Daze

Soukaku can enhance DMG and Daze by consuming Vortex to activate Frosted Banner and during the Masked state after using the Ultimate. She is strong even without ascending but if you do, Frosted Banner becomes more powerful and will be able to act as an Attack character once you fully ascend her.

Soukaku's Weakness

Durability is Quite Low

Soukaku has many skills that require her to stop and endure attacks with Anti-Interrupt, and although she has a lot of damage reduction, she almost has no invincibility. ZZZ has very little healing methods, so long-term combat such as Hollow Zero might be harder if you're not careful.

Soukaku - Best Team Comp

Corin Team

AttackStunSupport
CorinCorinLycaonLycaonSoukakuSoukaku

Corin Support Team

Support Team with Corin as the main Attacker. Lycaon has very high Stun stats and Corin can deal high damage when the enemy is stunned. All characters can activate their Additional Abilities.

Use Corin after Enemy is Stunned

Corin doesn't have Anti-interrupt most of the time but can deal high damage when the enemy is stunned, so keep her out of battle and use Lycaon (and Soukaku) to stun the enemy first. Once you stun the enemy, use Fly the Flag then Quick Assist to switch to Corin.

Replacing with Support Character

If you don't have Ellen or Lycaon, you can give up having the Additional Ability and replace them with Support characters. Use the basic strategy of Attack and Stun. Stun the enemy, then use Quick Assist to switch to a Support character, then use your Attack character.

Soukaku is the Main Attacker

Soukaku in the Frosted Banner state will be your main method of attacking. Use Fly the Flag to switch characters or continue fighting, depending on the number of Vortex and if the enemy is stunned for not.

3rd Character is Replaceable

In this example, we chose Ben as the 3rd character to endure enemy attacks, but you can also use Victoria Housekeeping Agents for the Additional Ability or another Support character.

Soukaku - Strategy and Combo

Change the Next Switching Character Depending on the Situation

Soukaku not only attacks with Quick Assist but also passes on the "Fly the Flag" Buff to the next character, so it's really important where you place her in the team. There are many Support Effects exclusive to Ice Attribute, so consider who you want the next character to be (or replace them) according to your group.

Team Placements/Next Character
Attack CharacterMost Common Strategy
Best choice especially if you have an Ice Attack character
Stun CharacterFor team with no Attack Agent
Time spent in battle is long and it is easy to take advantage of it.
Don't SwitchIf you are the Attacker, utilize all Buffs for yourself by not switching characters

Accumulate 3 Stacks of "Vortex" and Switch with "Fly the Flag"

When using Soukaku as a Support Character, store Energy and use EX Special Attack combo to get 3 stacks of "Vortex", then press and hold button to change characters with "Fly the Flag" and activate Quick Assist."Vortex” does not exceed 3 stacks, so once you have accumulated 3 stacks, quickly switch to the next character with “Fly the Flag”.

Tips!If you are low on energy, it is a good idea to give up on doubling the ATK Buff of the 3rd level of "Vortex" and quickly replace it with "Fly the Flag".

When Attacking - Maintain "Frosted Banner"

When using her as an Attacker, maintain "Frosted Banner" and fight mainly with enhanced Basic Attack. It is necessary to switch to a Supporter when it ends, but it will be easier to maintain if you ascend the character.
