Co-op is a game mode in 100% Orange Juice! that originally debuted on July 25th, 2018 with the Beach Party event. It was later reintroduced to the game as a permanent mode on May 16th, 2019 with the Minions of the Master event.

Co-op is an alternate game mode where, instead of competing against each other, all 4 players must pick a special co-op role and work together as a team to defeat a raid-bossesque Co-op Boss, a fifth character on the map. Players will not be racing for norma against each other but will instead achieve norma together to be able to use cards, and to unlock their role's passive effects. Players need to defeat the boss to win the game, and they will lose if all of them are KO'd at the same time. As the mode relies on cooperation, it can be difficult to complete the event alone with purely CPU players, especially since utilizing the abilities of each co-op role is essential to the players' success.

Setup[edit | edit source]

To activate co-op mode, the player needs to toggle the icon located next to the board menu. This can be done in both custom singleplayer games and online games. The player can also join an online co-op lobby, by selecting the "Co-op" tab at the top of the online lobby list.

Important Changes[edit | edit source]

Before examining the particulars of the mode, below is a basic list of rule changes the player should be aware of:

  • All players choose a co-op role during character selection. Players gain additional passives and abilities depending on their co-op role.
  • During deck selection, all cards are assigned either 0, 2, or 5 deck points. The cards that may be chosen are limited based the player's current deck points. Some cards are also ineligible for co-op mode.
  • Special co-op boards, made specifically for the mode, are available to play on.
  • Field events cannot be enabled in this mode, and are instead replaced with mixers.
  • The co-op boss plays alongside the other players as a 5th unit on the board.
  • Instead of winning using norma, the game is won when the boss's HP reaches 0, and lost if all four players are KO'd at once.
  • All stars, wins, norma levels, and  Home panels are shared between all 4 players.
  • Both types of norma checks (stars & wins) are simultaneously enabled.
  • Players will lose only 1/8 of their stars on KO.
  • Characters with positive ATK have an increased REC stat, calculated by the formula [base REC] + [base ATK].
  • The effects of some cards and character passives are altered.
  •  Bonus panels are not capped at level 3.
  •  Encounter panels have different enemies, which vary depending on the Boss.
  • Stars norma requirements are multiplied by 1.5, and Wins norma requirements are multiplied by 2.

Level Stars Victories
2☆ 15 2
3☆ 45 4
4☆ 105 10
5☆ 180 18

Character Changes[edit | edit source]

To prevent complete character bias, co-op makes adjustments to all character stats and some character passives. While these changes do make certain characters more or less viable than they usually would be, the changes are generally to make the characters conform with co-op mode.

REC Change

In co-op mode, characters with a positive ATK stat have increased REC stats. For these characters, the stat is calculated by the formula: [base REC + base ATK]. Characters with a neutral or negative ATK stat have unchanged REC stats. Shifu Robot's REC stat also remains unchanged, due to its passive.

For some characters, this results in a REC higher than 6, meaning the character needs to roll a 6 to revive for more than one turn. For instance, a character with 7 REC will need to roll 6 to revive for two chapters before it increments down to 5 or higher.

Passive Changes

  • Chicken, Robo Ball, Seagull, and Mimyuu lose the same amount of Stars on KO as everyone else.
  • Flying Castle can counterattack when landing on a  Boss panel, even if it attacks second.
  • Tequila's passive will not summon Pirate Crew Members on Encounter panels.
  • Tequila's +1 ATK per damage taken passive does not stack with the Avenger role, meaning the player will only receive +1 per HP lost, not +2.
  • Natsumi's same-panel passive will trigger with any unit as normal, but only players will receive the healing effect.
  • Mira's Binding Smoke passive will not affect players.

Field Changes

As previously mentioned, special boards are available in co-op. The board selection depends on which boss and difficulty the player chooses.

Board Panels

Most boards in co-op feature a special panel for the boss to start the game on.

Icon Name Effect
PBoss Home.png Boss Home Panel The boss starts the game on this panel. Functions as a  Boss panel when stepped on.

A-Practice Field.png

When playing on a board that does not feature a Boss Home panel, the boss starts the game on the rightmost end of the lowest row of panels. This location is based on an orthogonal view of the board, rather than the player's in-game view. For example, when playing on the Practice Field board shown to the right, the boss starts the game on the lowest bonus panel.

Field Events

Although most field events are replaced with mixers, co-op features 1 unique field event designed to make the boss harder the longer the game progresses. This field event is permanently active and cannot be turned off.

Name Chapters Effect
Terror
2
Random  Boss panels spawn around the board. The amount of spawned panels increases as the game progresses. This effect lasts for the duration of the Chapter and does not affect  Home,  Warp, or  Warp Move panels.
At the start of chapter 40, effect frequency increases from every 2 Chapters to every Chapter, and  Boss panels spawn everywhere except for  Warp and  Warp Move panels.

The Boss EncounterBoss Encounter
When Norma level 4 is achieved for the first time by any player, all PEncounter.png Encounter panels on the map will be replaced with PBoss.png Boss panels. While Boss Encounter is in effect, any player who stops on a Boss panel will battle the Boss unit. This event will continue until the Boss unit is defeated.
event that occurs in other game modes does not occur in co-op, since boss panels spawn through Terror instead.

Home Sweeper

Home Sweepericon.png Home SweeperHome Sweeper.png is a unique boss card played by the boss if it hasn't been defeated by chapter 40. Home Sweeper permanently removes home markers and  Home panels, allowing Terror to replace them with  Boss panels.
