Story Campaign Story
Update Version 2.0


Mysterious new enemies are rampaging around! Cooperate with others to put an end to the madness by playing the new co-op mode!

  • The goal of the event is to level up in co-op and beat the new super-powered co-op bosses, which now play as a CPU character and can also be encountered on  Boss panels. All four players must work as a co-op team with multiple new rules and Hypers in order to deplete bosses health to 0. If all players are KO'd at one given time, the players lose the game. A global counter will decrease based upon the damage dealt to Bosses during the match. This event is a prequel to the Master of the Minions event.

This event did not receive any reruns, and was retired in Version 2.7.3.

Rule Changes[]

Gamemode coop.png

This event is completely based around the newly introduced permanent Co-op mode. The new co-op mode is different than the one featured in the previous Beach Party event. Each player will work together as a single team to defeat the boss on the map. Players will not be racing for Norma against each other but will instead reach maximum Norma at level 5. The player will then need to defeat the boss to win the game or lose if all players are KO'd at the same time. As the event relies on cooperation, it is quite difficult to complete the event alone, with a CPU player. The complete list of changes are as followed:

  • All stars, wins, normas, and  Home panels are shared.
  • Both Norma checks (Wins & Stars) are always enabled for all characters.
  • The player cannot adjust the field events; in their place is the setting for the boss difficulty.
  • The player will choose a role before the start of a match.
  • New Recovery stats are calculated by the formula: Recovery = Base Recovery + Positive ATK (+1 REC if Attacker Role).
    It should also be noted that if the recovery value is greater than 6, it will count as a 6. (For example, if the player has REC 8, they will have to roll a 6 on one of the first 3 recovery rolls to recover)
  • Chapter 40 will remove all  Home panels and leave them as  Neutral panels.
  • The field event Terror will occasionally activate; replacing random tiles other than  Warp and  Warp Move with  Boss panels. By Chapter 40, it will activate every turn and consume all possible tiles.
  • Wins Requirement is doubled and Stars requirement is multiplied by 1.5

Roles are a unique way to play in co-op, with each character being designated to a role and rank. The roles are Attacker, Guardian, Supporter and Avenger, each of which features their own special abilities. Each character will receive a rank of A-E and a set amount of Deck Points depending on their rating. Generally, the stronger the character's stats, the less points provided.

Each of the roles sport new abilities to help players survive and defeat the boss. They can be leveled up by playing their respective role and doing actions related to it. Avenger is locked at the start, but it can be unlocked by reaching Attacker Lvl 10 or if the player had unlocked it previously in the Beach Party event.

Type Base Stats and Abilities
Summer2018 role0.png
  • When challenging a Boss, attack first.
  • Gets permanent +1 REC at Norma 1.
  • Gets permanent +1 ATK at Norma 2.
Summer2018 role1.png
  • Can spend 2 HP to give an ally a shield that absorbs up to 2 points of damage, similar to Robo Ball's  Reflective Shell hyper. The shield is the same color as the Guardian's player color and lasts until the affected ally takes a hit in combat, finishes a battle or gets KO'd outside of battle. Additionally, each guardian can only distribute one shield at a time - trying to distribute a second shield will simply move the existing shield to the new target.
  • Gets permanent +1 DEF at Norma 2.
Summer2018 role2.png
  • Can spend stars to revive players if they land on their square or if they pass by them. Star cost will depend on the revive roll of the fallen ally. The formula is (roll requirement x 5 stars).
  • Can heal players for 1 HP at no cost if they land on their square or if they pass by them.
  • Gets permanent +1 to move rolls at Norma 2.
Summer2018 role3.png
  • Receive +1 ATK per 2HP lost in combat.
  • Gets permanent +1 max HP at Norma 2.

A few characters have rather notable changes and passive tweaks that are important for the player to understand when playing in co-op. Certain characters are more or less viable then they usually would be, as a result of these adjustments.

Character Passives With Changed Effects

  • Star Breaker can redeem Stars norma like any other character.
  • Tequila's passive and the Avenger role's +1 ATK per damage taken effect do not stack, meaning the player will only receive +1 per HP lost, not +2.

Event Rewards[]


This event features three global counters on the main menu of the game. This is the first event where there is more than one global counter. Similar to Beach Party, the global goal involves doing damage to the various bosses to deplete their health bar. Once a certain amount of damage was dealt, new items, bosses, and global counters were unlocked for all players.

Unlike in previous events that featured global counters, the ending cutscene would not trigger until the player played at least one online game in Co-op mode.[1] This set a precedent for future events and reruns that featured global counters, requiring the player to participate in the event mode to receive global counter rewards.
