Marc (マール Māru) is one of the four starting characters in 100% Orange Juice!, that the player can select without paying any Stars. She originates from the game Flying Red Barrel in which she was the main character.
A young pilot experienced in combat, Marc is an extremely versatile character, built upon an unusual stat build and powerful hyper. Marc has a build designed for fighting, with an average health stat of 4, an above average attack, a buffed defense stat to compensate for a reduced evasion stat, and a neutral recovery. As opposed to relying on evasion like the similarly built, Marc relies on defense to provide less risk and increase her odds of lasting at least 3 chapters before being KO'd on the next. As a result, Marc generally does not have any difficulty defeating and surviving panels as her attack will either be enough to defeat the opponent or her defense will be able to protect her from high rolls, and while not perfect, her reduced evasion stat is still decent at protecting her from low rolls as well. Marc's main advantage, however, is her ability to transition easily between stars or wins norma. Marc's stats enable her to fulfill either norma as she can fight well or collect stars in peace, and her hyper boasts one of the strongest effects in the game for this purpose. Her hyper also provides her with a very strong late game, as she can quickly raise her Wins in a short amount of chapters, if conditions are ideal. It should be noted that Wins Norma is only advisable if the player does well in combat and finds the hyper though.
Marc's has two key disadvantage, the first of which stems from her health and evasion. Since Marc's evasion is reduced, the idea of evading is increasingly problematic for Marc, as it is often better to roll for defense even if the opponent rolls a 3, as 3 damage will leave Marc with but a single point of health. The player can take risks but it becomes a difficult dilemma given Marc's small supply of health. Likewise, since Marc's stat boosts are only +1s they may prove to give extremely exciting results or barely help at all depending on the player's luck. Secondly, the player will need to remain cautious when selecting their norma route. If the player decides to go the route of wins norma or switches between wins and star norma, they may face issues as they may become hyper reliance late in the game and may also have issues affording the hyper. If the player only has 11 wins and has run out of hypers, the player may have accidentally put themselves into an impossible situation if the opponents are too difficult for the player to defeat.
As previously mentioned, Marc is unique in that she can play either wins or stars dependent on how well the player rolls and what they draw. If the player is lucky enough to draw a lot of hypers is finding success onpanels, then wins is ideal. Marc's 4 HP can go a very long way. If RNG is not on the player's side however, her stats should enable the player to collect stars in peace and counter-attack well in response to opponents.
- +Good combat stats
- +Can KO most of cast with her Hyper in late game
- +Hyper can earn Wins indirectly
- -Relatively low HP for aggressive play
- -Hyper becomes more expensive with each Level
- -Somewhat Hyper reliant
Marc's hyper is x16 Big Rocket. When activated, the unit who played the card deals damage to a single opponent of their choice equal to their own norma level. If an opponent is KO'ed by this effect, then the unit receives 2 Wins for the KO.
x16 Big Rocket is an extremely powerful hyper, in that is the only Hyper in the entire game that is able to not only deal damage but also score wins off of opponents, without having Marc entering combat. It also possesses numerous advantages such as being an aimable level 1 card that essentially grows with the player, becoming stronger but more expensive as the player progresses. The early level aspect makes Marc already dangerous from the beginning of the game, enabling her to steal KO's from other opponents if they leave an opponent with 1 HP remaining. Likewise, the growth of the effect continues to keep Marc strong moving forward and can make her deadly in the late game, as only characters with the highest HP in the game, such asWhile a very strong Hyper, the main drawback of x16 Big Rocket is by far its hefty price. The later in the game the Hyper is activated, the more expensive it will be for the player. As a result, , , or , will be able to survive the Hyper if they have full health. As a result of this, the Hyper is a natural counter to tank characters that rely on health, as while Marc cannot take their stars, she can take their HP with the Hyper and then KO them or delay them with a KO and still get the wins she needs. x16 Big Rocket is also particularly brutal against characters with especially low HP such as or who will be immediately KO'd from her Hyper by the time Marc reaches Norma Lv 3, and enable her to rake in wins at a low level. In addition, the Hyper also enables Marc to prey on most playable NPCs. Since the effect states that the KO will give 2 Wins to the player, the Hyper overrides the effects of , , , and , who in normal circumstances give only 1 Win. is extremely useful for Marc to lower the costs, as the card becomes substantially more difficult to use around norma 4 and 5. The second issue with the Hyper is the dilemma it can create for the player. The Hyper can make the player overconfident in their ability to gain wins and cause them to choose wins norma unwisely. This can be particularly troublesome for the final norma, as the player may have 9 wins and will need to decide between wins or star norma to complete the game. For example, on one hand, the player may have another x16 Big Rocket and feel confident they can get the last 3 wins needed, however, on the other, KOing another player manually may give them the 200 stars they need to win. KOing another player manually will give more wins toward the opposite norma which may have been the better choice if the player has their stars stolen. Ideally, the player can have their cake and eat it too by choosing the final wins norma, KOing another player and then using the Hyper to KO another. As a result of this dilemma, the player should concentrate closely on their current situation before deciding which final norma to take, if they do not have any Hypers.
- Playing As Marc
- Due to the rising price of with each level up, the card can substantially reduce the price of using the Hyper late-game. It also is highly advantageous in keeping both wins and star norma as viable victory options.
- A player using Marc should generally focus on wins norma if they are doing well on panels and draw multiple . If the player is not doing well on either front, stars norma will be the best option.
- Cards such as can assist Marc in getting necessary KO's, as she tends to perform well in combat. The card can also be used to lower the health of high HP opponents, in order for Marc to be able to KO them with her Hyper.
- Like many characters, and are great cards to help Marc find another Hyper, and , while less viable can be useful as well.
- Playing Against Marc
- Using cards such as or can cause Marc lose her Hyper, which can be very helpful late-game when Marc will often have multiple Hypers.
- Using high HP characters such as Marie Poppo or Kiriko checks as unless the player has low HP, the Hyper will not be able to KO them.

Counter Cards[edit source]
In Co-op mode, Marc doesn't change much as her hyper remains the same, however, her recovery stat rises.
Marc's defensive durability and already boosted attack stat makes attacker her best role. At the max level, she will have an attack stat of +3 and her defense will aid in keeping her alive. Further her hyper will help the player deal substantial damage to the boss. Unfortunately, the debuff to her recovery stat make her less viable as does her low HP, thus it may be beneficial to play with a guardian or supporter ally to help keep Marc in good combat-ready condition.
Given Marc's slightly boosted defense stat, guardian can be a viable choice
AvengerAvenger is a rather poor fit for Marc as a result of both her low HP pool and only slightly buffed defense stat. Even with the HP boost from the role, Marc can't really benefit much from the role because she lacks either the defense or
When the player begins a new game and selects their starting main character, they will receive the cards necessary to create a deck. If a players chooses Marc as their starting character, they will begin the game with the provided 15 cards along with Marc's Unit Card and Hyper Card. In concurrence with Marc's stats, Marc's starting deck is relatively combat based, with it containing mostly stat adjustment cards to aid Marc and weaken her opponents.
