Effect[edit | edit source]
Kyousuke's Hyper is Cast Off. When used, the player's base ATK stat will be swapped with their base DEF stat. This effect lasts until the player is KO'd. In addition, if Cast Off is used while it is already in effect, the effect will end.
If the player is Kyousuke, his sprite will be changed to use his second set of poses (7/8/9/10/11/12). The pose changes will last for the duration of Cast Off.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Cast Off gives Kyousuke the ability to play as two different characters at once: A passive version that defends against attacks as well as, and an aggressive version that lets him attack opponents as well as and . The key to making the most of this Hyper is to switch according to the situation, usually to attack someone who may not be able to retaliate against the aggressive version, like , another Kyousuke, or someone who is low on HP. Cast Off goes well with , as long as you don't accidentally get involved in a battle before you can Cast Off, you can swap your stats up to +4 ATK and -1 DEF.
There are few characters who gain from Cast Off, as many characters have the same ATK and DEF, or it just goes against their play style. Notable users are Flying Castle who gets +1 DEF combined with his 10 HP for a near unkillable castle and Nanako who can have the battle stats of unsoftened Tomomo.
