- Can hold 4 cards (as opposed to the standard 3).
Aru (Scramble) is the counterpart to, sporting the same stats and the passive of being able to hold 4 cards. As such, she fills the same role of being a star-collector while avoiding combat. She possesses a +2 EVD stat together with and , allowing her to avert most damage. She also has the ability to hold 4 cards, which gives her more possibilities to not be KOed by enemy encounters. Finally, her Hyper is a considerable idle star gaining method which increases throughout the game, while also giving her some security against combat-heavy characters if luck plays on the player's side.
Her main disadvantage is her low combat stats other than Evade. Due to a low ATK stat, Aru (Scramble) will most of the time retaliate with low damage, and a low DEF stat makes her more vulnerable against high attack rolls. Having a high EVD stat will incite players to evade, but a failed roll will cause high damage or a KO. Rounding off, despite her hyper being a very good star gaining method, it forces Aru (Scramble) to give away cards that can otherwise help her survive, or cards that will benefit her enemies.
- + Tied for the second highest EVD stat with , , , and
- + Hyper can be used to prevent player encounters
- + Hyper helps her accumulate stars through the game
- + Good HP to potentially survive in case defense is preferred
- + Passive allows her to hold 4 cards
- - Low ATK and DEF makes her a target for other players
- - Reliant on EVD success
- - Hyper requires high level cards in the deck to be the most efficient
- - Unreliable Hyper passive
- - Hyper requires you to level up to start giving noticeable benefits
- - Hyper can give away important cards that can hurt her survivability.
Aru (Scramble)'s Hyper is Santa's Job. When this Gift card is held, at the end of the player's turn, the player will send a random card from their hand to another random unit. The player will gain stars equal to the level of the sent card x5, and the unit who received the card will be unable to challenge other players when meeting them on the field for 1 chapter, indicated by the Santa's Gift stock effect. Only cards that the player has the level to use can be sent through this effect. In addition, Santa's Job itself (including additional copies of Santa's Job) cannot be sent through this effect. Upon use, this card will be discarded. In addition, this card will be discarded if the player is KO'd by any effect.
If multiple copies of Santa's Job are held, the effect will stack. The number of cards the player distributes per turn will be equal to the number of stacks. When distributing multiple cards per turn, the unit receiving the card is selected separately for each card.
When holding this card, a icon will hover around the player.
Santa's Job helps Aru (Scramble) be more passive in that she can deny a player's ability to attack every turn and reward herself with stars, provided she has cards to give. As the Hyper is a major advantage to Aru, the player should focus on acquiring the card, landing onpanels to supply cards for its effect, and avoid being KO'd to keep the Hyper.
The player should take advantage of the effect by packing cards that are not particularly dangerous to Aru. One card that works well with Santa's Job isThe main disadvantage to the Hyper is that the player can't control what cards the Hyper will give away and it will take effect the turn it is drawn, getting rid of potentially useful cards. The Hyper also incentivizes Aru (Scramble) to deck high-level cards that don't fit her playstyle in order to gain more stars, removing spots for cards that would help her defend herself. When the Hyper is on hand, it'll drain her hand fairly quickly and she cannot draw cards for her own personal use unless the Hyper is dropped. Finally, because of the random nature of who receives the cards, the target may not be someone who she desires, failing to protect her from attacks if a player is targeting her, or benefit the enemy by giving them stat boosts or star/card gains. . Since the card can be given away at the end of the turn, Aru doesn't have to pay stars to be rid of it, while also giving it to someone who will have to pay. This same effect also occurs with Hyper, , where giving it to another player will make them take damage. Higher level cards can also work with Santa's Job in getting stars, but also runs the risk of said cards being used against her. Cards that don't influence her like or as well as healing cards like and are recommended for greater star gain at a lesser risk.
- Playing As Aru (Scramble)
- Battles should be avoided, and getting must be top priority.
- Her Hyper can help her elude combat and escape from a battle against another player.
- If you have enough stars, you can drop your hyper by using it to start gathering defensive cards like , or to prevent being KO'd.
- High-level cards that don't affect combat like , or will give her a great amount stars if the player has a hyper on hand.
- Unlike her counterpart, and the Charity event are helpful to have in the game, as they will give Aru (Scramble) cards to give away.
- Playing Against Aru (Scramble)
- Just like normal Aru, she's not meant for combat, and as such attacking her will often lead to the adversary dealing great damage or a KO. However, Aru (Scramble) has a great Evade stat, which should be taken in account when fighting her with a low ATK stat.
- Cards that force her to drop or scramble her hand, such as and , will slow her down and make her fall behind.
