- When in battle, add reverse value of DEF to ATK.
- Gain -1 DEF when on the attacking side in battle.
Armed with a childlike personality and a love for burning, Kae is a glass cannon like no other, dealing lots of damage but being taken down swiftly. Upon initial appearance, Kae is rather unimpressive, possessing a relatively frail build similar to, which sports an average health stat, below average defense, and a decreased recovery and increased evasion stat to help her survive and get back to playing sooner. Kae's true strength, however, is derived from her tricky passive ability that can enable her to deal massive damage with little to no effort. Her passive is broken into two parts. The first passive ability adds the inverse of her defense stat to her attack stat giving her a natural boost of +1 attack. When coupled with her second passive effect, which decreases her defense stat by 1 when attacking, Kae receives a natural boost of +2 to her Attack stat when she initiates a battle. This means Kae should always aim to strike first to get the +2 to her attack stat, but she will still have the benefit of a -1 defense stat when being attacked by an opponent as opposed to a -2. The key advantage of this passive is that enables Kae to have some of the cheapest card combos that yield fast and powerful results. Cards such as will give her a +3 attack and +3 evasion stat to effectively attack and dodge, while can push her attack stat to +4 with a level 1 battle card. The passive also makes traps like , which are normally very detrimental to fragile characters, potentially extremely useful to powering up Kae. Kae also has the advantage of a very cheap hyper that will further augment her abilities for multiple chapters.
The main downside to Kae is that her build is somewhat paradoxical. Kae is extremely frail as a result of her below average health and defense stat but she needs to constantly initiate battle to take advantage of her passive. However, without her passive, she is fragile and with her passive active, she is likely to be KO'd if she fails to KO the opponent in one hit as her defense will be very low. In short, Kae's weakness is that she can dish out damage but can't handle returning fire from opponents. If the player rolls poorly on Kae's lackluster evasion stat or does not have good combo cards, she will likely go down quickly. Kae's need to attack first also causes issues, as this means the player will need to try and stay behind the other players during a match which can be problematic depending on the board, the player move order, or how well the player rolls for movement. Kae also shoots herself in the foot when using defensive cards such, since it will lower her attack stat into the negatives during the battle. Thus the player will need to consider how desperate they are to survive before using a defensive card.
- +Very powerful Hyper if used properly
- +Capable of acquiring a high ATK stat with common low level battle cards
- +2 ATK if she attacks first
- +4 REC allows her to revive very quickly
- -Extremely fragile
- -Not a big threat when fought
- -Hyper requires proper timing to be effective
- -Hyper is extremely susceptible to and
Kae's Hyper is Blazing!. When used, a preview of the card's range will be shown to the player, and the player will be prompted to confirm their card usage. If No is selected, the card will not be used and the player will return to card selection. If Yes is selected, this card's effect will activate.
When used, the player as well as all non-KO'd units within a 2-panel radius will instantly gain 1 stack of Blazing!. This grants +1 ATK and -1 DEF for every stack. This effect lasts for 3 chapters, or until the unit is KO'd.
If Blazing! is used while it is already in effect, the effect will stack and the duration will be refreshed.
Blazing! is an extremely powerful high-risk Hyper that can be used to quickly deal massive damage to an opponent. The Hyper will give Kae a total boost of +2 ATK when the effect is active. Therefore, the effect essentially works likeexcept for 3 chapters and with a stackable effect. However, the effectiveness of stacking the Hyper begins to shrink after exceeding 3 stacks, as during battle Kae's ATK cannot exceed +9.
The card itself is best used when Kae attacks first and has a further reduced DEF stat to augment her ATK, creating a dangerous situation for the opponent. The Hyper is best used to finish off an opponent (or opponents) that Kae is trailing, in hopes that Kae will not risk being KO'd as a result of her low DEF stat. The player can also use the Hyper strategically to have an opponent within the effect's activation radius to lower their DEF.
As to be expected, the Hyper pairs very well with other damage-increasing cards such asThe main disadvantage to Blazing! is that it leaves Kae vulnerable with a poor DEF stat. If an opponent with high ATK is trailing Kae, they may be able to take advantage of her weak defenses during this time. Further, the opponent may also have an increased ATK if they were within the activation area of the Hyper. . With a single stack of Blazing! and , Kae will already have a +6 ATK stat when attacking. Similar combos can also be made with or , with the latter providing Kae the opportunity to evade damage and deal a second wave of damage.
- Playing As Kae
- Kae's greatest strength is the sheer quantity of cards that synergize with her passive and enable her to power up her stats for a cheap price. Theoretically, any card that lowers defense can be used as a weapon for Kae. and are must-have cards for Kae that will take 6 of her 10 card slots, as they are easy to use, provide massive power, and don't help the opponent nearly as much as high-level battle cards.
- While it seems like a pretty big risk to bring, is a good backup card for , and the risks it brings don't mean much to Kae since even someone using against her will easily KO her, and if someone else uses it, they are now easier for Kae to KO
- While somewhat more difficult to use, if she packs and is lucky enough to draw it, they will have a permanent attack boost that can be stacked with , etc, for even greater results.
- will give Kae a +1 ATK boost, and since opponents will also get the -1 DEF debuff, Kae is much more likely to KO them. It also boosts everyone's EVD, which can be vital for Kae since she relies on EVD more than most characters. Since it isn't a battle card, Kae can use it to combo with her battle cards for devastating results. It can also combo with , although its not as reliable as using a battle card.
- can be really good for Kae as she is more likely to KO someone who landed on it, while she will gain a +2 ATK boost until she gets into a battle. Since its a norma 1 trap, it is also Kae's best answer to shutting down hyper, .
- While often not the best choice, Kae has the advantage of being able to use without losing any attack power, given that the -1 DEF compensates for the point of ATK lost. The player would likely want to use this after using or one of the previously mentioned nonbattle card to ensure Kae is strong enough to KO the oppoennt.
- Playing Against Kae
- Given that stats are Kae main tool for victory, cards that remove these buffs or turn them against her such as and , and very effective counters.
- and gives players a far greater chance of surviving anything other than her combos. Also since it buffs DEF, if Kae uses them she will lower her ATK.
- allows players to flee Kae, unless she uses a battle card.
- and can be used to deny Kae a KO, whether it KO's her target, or herself. However, Kae can also use these cards to KO herself to get behind someone, or to weaken a target before she fights them.
- Healing cards like , , , and can bring players out of range for Kae to KO them, although they wont do much against Kae using her ATK boosts for any character with worse defenses than a tank.
- Since Kae only gets 2 ATK when she initiates battle, the player should try to stay behind Kae and attack first if possible.
In Co-op mode, Kae's stats do not change. However, her passive is changed:
- Kae no longer gains -1 DEF when on the attacking side in battle.
Kae's Hyper, Blazing!, has a different effect in Co-op. The Blazing! stock effect granted by the Hyper has a duration of 2 chapters instead of 3 chapters, and its effect varies depending on whether the affected unit is a player or an enemy. If the unit is a player, the stock effect grants +1 ATK for every stack; if the unit is an enemy, the stock effect grants -1 DEF for every stack.
Kae's passive and Hyper are unchanged in Bounty Hunt mode.
Kae's base stats give her 40 starting stars and a price adjustment of 0% at shops.
