Aru can hold 4 cards (as opposed to the normal 3).
Aru is a star-collecting character based on avoiding combat and damage. While featuring below average attack and defense stats, Aru features a solid health stat and the highest evasion stat equaled only by. These stats enable her to slip through the opponent's attacks with ease, however, the player should be wary of her otherwise fragile stats. As her combat proficiency is poor, she should spend her time avoiding confrontation and instead focus on acquiring stars. Besides her high evade stat, Aru's other advantage is her passive which enables her to hold 4 cards at a time. This aids her in having options and a constant supply of cards to counter and escape her opponents.
The main disadvantage of Aru is her overall poor combat stats. With her low Attack, Win Norma is often not a possibility, and Star Norma will generally be the required method of victory. Also, due to the nature of evade, low rolls will often result in Aru being KO'd, as the player will generally choose evade over defense.

Aru's Hyper is Present for You. Present for You causes all players to draw cards until they have a full hand. If a player has a full hand, they draw 1 card instead. The player who activated the card gains stars equal to 10x the number of all cards drawn.
Hyper Strategy[edit source]
Present for You is one of the fastest star-collecting Hypers if activated at the opportune moment. The Hyper grants more stars the fewer cards everyone has in their possession, thus it is wise to hold onto the Hyper to maximize the total star gains. With the high price of 30 stars it is advisable to hold onto the Hyper until the player can gain at least 50 stars from it to pay off the card and gain over half the price. It should also be noted that often times the first use will be the most efficient, as other players may horde their cards to prevent the Hyper's use again, or it may take very long for players to use their acquired cards. If timed properly, the maximum possible amount of stars awarded by Present for You is 130, which is almost triple the amountcan steal with . Also since Aru herself can hold 4 cards at a time, if the hyper is used as the only card in her hand, she gains a profit of 40 stars at a minimum and gains 4 new cards as a result, which can be advantageous.
The main downside to the Hyper is that it is beneficial to other players as well as the user.The opponent will likely draw cards enabling them to go on the offense and draw a few of their own Hyper cards. Characters such as and will benefit from the increased number of cards held if they draw their Hyper. can also benefit if she draws her Hyper as well, as she will be able to steal a large amount of the newly gained stars, with little chance of Aru being able to fight her for them due to her low stats. A secondary downside to the Hyper is also that it does not work as well on Boards where the Charity effect is active, as it will supply the players with cards and diminish the returns of the Present for You.
- Playing As Aru
- Cards such as and have discard effects that can quickly empty opponent's hands and thus increase the rewards of Aru's Hyper.
- Cards that help Aru travel faster such as or can help Aru avoid confrontation with other players.
- and are both cheap to use and low level cards which make them ideal choices to keep Aru alive in combat.
- Aru decks should generally contain low level and inexpensive cards with few limitation to encourage opponents to use their cards thus emptying their hands in the process.
- Playing Against Aru
- With Aru's decreased defense stat and sole reliance on her evasion, most battle cards are the best counters to Aru as they will not improve her combat ability much and will help the player KO her if she rolls poorly.
- is a particularly strong counter to as it fills almost all players' hands, rendering the Hyper ineffective. Likewise, the card can also cause Aru to loose a large amount of stars as she can hold a maximum of 4 cards instead of the usual 3.
- is a good card choice as it is helpful to the player and relatively pointless for Aru, as she will often only get to use her hyper once per game.
- can also be a very effective counter to , as it can trigger the Hypers activation at disadvantageous time for the player.
