Overview[edit | edit source]
As her name and passive imply, Star Breaker is designed to steamroll opponents through brute force with a heavily buffed attack stat. While similar toand , Star Breaker features a very high attack stat with no defense or recovery drawbacks and decent health stat for a bully character. As a result, of her passive, Star Breaker plays slightly different than other bullies. As stars are completely useless to Star Breaker since she can't use them to norma, the player can have a complete disregard for the amount of stars they have and spend them in any way they choose. The player should spend the entire game assaulting other players at every chance they have and focus fully on panels when they are unable to reach an opponent. This makes the field event particularly helpful to Star Breaker as well. Cards like and can help bring in much needed KOs as the game progress, and provide Star Breaker potentially weaker opponents to pick off. It may also be in the best interest of the player to bring cards like to prevent opponents from reaching their next norma. She also benefits from a powerful Hyper that can reduce an opponent's health to 1, however, the card is inconsistent and may yield little reward to the player depending on the opponent and the player's luck.
While possessing a rather infamous reputation for being "OP" by newer players, Star Breaker has multiple weaknesses stemming from her passive, which substantially lower her odds of winning a match. Her powerful passive forces the player to always choose wins norma (her first norma is also 1 KO, not 10 stars) which is a large hindrance to her overall gameplay. Star Breaker faces a race against the norma clock since wins do not generate themselves like stars. If the player has not KO'd at least 8 opponents by norma 4, the game will likely be over for Star Breaker, as bosses and opponent's Hypers will cripple the player's wins progress. Likewise, if the player is unfortunate enough to be against , both his passive and generally carried cards like and will make it almost impossible for the player to find easy KOs or have any chance at winning. Star Breaker will also face an uphill battle on certain fields. Small boards like Vortex and Warfare give her less walk time to attack other characters and multiple panels to feed her wins, however, large boards like White Winter give opponents lots of space to get away from Star Breaker. In the end, Star Breaker's success is highly dependent on how well she rolls and how poorly the opponent rolls. If the player cannot roll well and KO other opponents in a timely fashion, they are more or less doomed to lose the match.
By default, Star Breaker should aim for the wins norma and play aggressively at every turn whenever the opportunity presents itself. If the player is having particularly good RNG and rolls a string of 5-6s, Star Breaker can quickly crush opponents with her +2 attack in the early game. The player's main goal should be to get wins and slow the star collecting progress of other opponents if possible. The more wins the player can amass before norma 4, the higher the player's odds of winning in the late game will be. Her Hyper may also aid the player in the late game as well if RNG is permitting.
