Things to look out for in each battle

From Battle 1 to Battle 5, you will be faced against enemies with pretty high ATK. Let’s keep that in mind from the get-go!

So we have a penguin and pig in Battle 1. This is our chance to charge our Specials, right?!
Actually the weakest penguin can hit you for over 2000 damage each turn, so don’t get too comfortable! It might be a little tough to take out the enemies in Battle 2 before they get in a hit, but the DEX dinosaur is pretty weak so you can leave him for last.

Let’s relax a bit in Battle 3 and charge our Specials. Charge up as much as your HP will allow. But don’t go overboard!

Sea Stallions? We got these guys!

Sea Stallions? We got these guys!

In Battle 4, the enemy will hit us with a preemptive Slot Sweep to RCV. Let’s aim for Greats and recover our HP while we take out the enemies. What we’ll need to watch out for here is the Sea Stallion, who can Bind one of your crew members for 6 turns. Don’t take him out quick enough and you’ll find yourself in quite the BIND. (Pun intended)

It’s Time for Heracles!

It’s Time for Heracles!

Heracles is here and he has brought what appears to be his pupils. He will start out using a preemptive Pop Green, lowering the slot rate for INT and RCV. This puts us at a fairly big disadvantage since we won’t be able to heal as much and our INT type characters can’t dish out as much damage. Take a full barrage of attacks from the enemies here and it’s good night for those crews with low HP.

This is where we need to take down the enemy’s numbers or at least delay their turns, right? But even if you use Sogeking’s Fire Bird Star (Delays all enemies by 3 turns and deals 15x character’s ATK in PSY damage to all enemies) here, Heracles will use his Stay on your toes!! buff for his crew, and cancel out your Delay. Heracles will continue to repeat Stay on your toes!! and You need to heal sometimes!! which heals him and his crew, while attacking in between.

His crew members did their jobs and in the end, we couldn’t even lay a finger on Heracles.

The new Heroes of the Forest

In our rematch, Heracles was so impressed with the crew we made that he decided to join us! Here is that crew!

So you wanna be a Hero?

With a Captain Ability to reduce damage taken by 20% and double Slasher characters’ ATK, we went with Sir Crocodile Warlord of the Sea as our Captain. For Friend Captain, we were lucky enough to get Donquixote Doflamingo Warlord of the Sea, who grants Slasher characters with double ATK and HP. Heracles couldn’t possibly break through this dream team!

For the rest of our crew, we added Mr. 3 Extra Special Candelabra and Usopp Golden Pound to buy us time with their Delay Specials. Playing quite a lovely role in our crew for his Special that not only reduces damage taken by 30% but also boosts Slasher characters’ ATK, we added Daz Bones, Convict Mr. 1. Finally, we added Kaku: Beastman Ox-Ox Fruit, Model: Giraffe just because giraffes are cute….

..and his Special kicks butt.(Deals 20x character’s ATK to all enemies and changes QCK slots to STR)

Let’s charge those Specials

It will take some luck, but it’s best if you get at least Kaku’s Special ready before heading into the battle with Heracles. We managed to do just that thanks to the crab in Battle 4!

Get’em boys!

Get’em boys!

The crab here in Battle 4 has to wait three turns in between attacks, so you should be able to charge Kaku’s Special. It will knock off some health though, so try to heal a bit before the final bout.

Showdown with Heracles

We made it to Heracles with as much HP as we could and now it’s time to launch those Specials! Kaku, Mr. 1! You’re up!

Charged up and ready to go!

Charged up and ready to go!

First things first. Launch Mr. 1’s Cruel Blade: Iron Guard to reduce damage taken and boost your ATK. Second, launch Kaku’s Fierce Smash and send those baddies flying!

Show us what you’re made of!

Show us what you’re made of!

We got rid of Heracles’ crew in the first turn!

Now, it’s a battle against time. Heracles will use Stay on your toes!! and it’s only after that where Usopp Golden Pound or Extra Special Candelabra will work, so be careful when you launch those. Either one will work here! Heracles’ Pop Green will reduce the rate of RCV and INT slots, making things a bit difficult for us, but aim for Perfects and do as much damage as you can!

Launch Golden Hammer or Candelabra only after 'Stay on your toes!!'

Launch Golden Hammer or Candelabra only after ‘Stay on your toes!!’

We got Heracles cornered now! Let’s let loose all the rest of our Specials and take the win!

Give it your all!

Give it your all!

It was a rough battle and we barely made it out alive, but in the end we got him!

Welcome-un!

Welcome-un!
