Mastermind Xon
Attacker Support Breaker
  • Very unusual unit who can copy certain buffs from allies and spread them to the entire team.
  • He tends to be most useful for optimizing damage against very easy bosses (usually by copying powerful self-only killer buffs from one unit onto other, stronger damage dealers), but he can also see very occasional use elsewhere if damage is vital and surviving is trivially easy.
  • He can also chain with most major chaining families and provide AoE mirage.
  • His usefulness varies wildly depending on which units you have that he can copy buffs from, which is why he is the only unit to ever receive a ? rating.

Seaside Nichol
MagicAttacker Support

23.5

23

Minwu
MagicAttacker Healer
  • Time limited unit

Flammie
Attacker
  • Time limited unit
  • Subpar buffer.

  • Has a fairly bare-bones kit by healer standards.

Ace
MagicAttacker Breaker
  • Subpar buffer.
  • Unfortunately, his buffs are semi-random.

20

Marie

18

Marquis de Léon
Attacker Breaker
  • Time limited unit
