After 7 years, 4 games, and almost 70 chapters of build up, we've finally got Yuuka in her full glory. Does she live up to the hype?
If you ignore the fact that we only have her for the literal end of the game, she's probably the strongest combat unit in the game.
Just like back in FMW3, she is kind of like Marisa+Sakuya, on steroids. She is the only unit in the game with Parry, Shield Block, and a Double Image, making her ridiculously hard to kill, even ignoring her considerable Armor. If you want to go absolutely crazy with it, Unreachable Flower doubles the effect of Diligence (which she starts with at L2). The result is that she has a flat 80%(!) chance to dodge everything, on top of being highly likely to block. She's, like, basically unkillable. Alternatively, you could just run Off-Season Bloom and give up some tankiness for even more damage.
Speaking of damage...
Yuuka gained a new special command, which allows her to transform(?) into her new Full Bloom mode. Statistically the only difference is she gains 10% HP and MP Regeneration, but the main difference is her weaponlist swapping out to her new FMW4 attacks. They're all tremendously powerful, but they're also tremendously expensive, and just like with EX Keine you can't transform back, so it's worth thinking about. In the worst case, Flowering Shoot has 25 ammo in either form, so she'll never be without stuff to do.
yes I know Ultimate Spark is based on HTB Cannon but let's be real Yuuka is way more Neo Granzon than she is SRX
-Yuuka's attack animations.
This time, both Marisa and Reimu are forced by the game itself. So with Marisa not costing us extra, and the game being extra generous, we've got a whole 70.0 Cost to work with!
To be honest, it's getting harder and harder to think of something creative to put here. I mean, not that these were ever very creative, but, y'know.
