Kae's hyper is Blazing!. It inflicts a stock effect that adds 1 attack and subtracts 1 defense on Kae and every opponent within 2 panels (this includes diagonal) from Kae. This stack lasts for the next 3 chapters. If Kae or an opponent is KO'd while under the effects of Blazing!, they will lose the stock effect. The effect itself can also be replenished and stacked multiple times by using another Blazing! before the effect expires. The effectiveness of the hyper begins to shrink after exceeding 3 stacks; however, as during battle Kae's attack cannot exceed +9.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Blazing! is an extremely powerful high-risk Hyper that can be used to quickly deal massive damage to an opponent. The effect essentially works likeexcept for 3 chapters and with a stackable effect. Thus, like the card, the Hyper will give Kae a total boost of +2 Attack when the effect is active. As a result, the card itself is best used when Kae attacks first and has a further reduced defense stat to augment her attack, creating a dangerous situation for the opponent. The Hyper is best used to finish off an opponent (or opponents) that Kae is trailing, in hopes that Kae will not risk being KO'd as a result of her low defense stat. The player can also use the Hyper strategically to have an opponent within the effect's activation radius to lower their defense.
As to be expected, the hyper pairs very well with other damage increasing cards such as. With a single stack of Blazing! and , Kae will already have a +6 attack stat when attacking. Similar combos can also be made with or , with the latter providing Kae the opportunity to evade damage and deal a second wave of damage.
The main disadvantage to Blazing! is that it leaves Kae vulnerable with a poor defense stat. If an opponent such asis trailing Kae, they may be able to take advantage of her weak defenses during this time. Further, the opponent may have an increased attack if they were within the activation area of the Hyper.
