Re: The Book of Akumaken

Its absolutely deliberate. Samurai are the only ones immune to each other's Counter Strike. Akumaken, being a Ronin, will gladly trade strikes with Samurai. Charos can Counter Strike Samurai, too.

Re: The Book of Akumaken

I think that @Dark_Stranger was more surprised that Samurai can still use Counter-Strike against Akumaken, even though he cannot use it back against them. Charos can both be hurt by a defending Samurai and use Counter-Strike against them, but Akumaken can only be hurt by them. He's not really "trading" so much as receiving.

As the nemesis of the Samurai, it does feel a little odd that they're actually the only unit immune to one of his defensive abilities, but it's never personally bothered me very much.

Re: The Book of Akumaken

You're right. But I've always felt it was thematic in a way, that Samurai don't take kindly to traitors.

Parrying is probably quite difficult

I think that once Aku put on his mask and went from having the discipline of a samurai to the terror that is a ronin, he became less able in combat. And while his defensive capabilities are greater than others, they have become inferior to that of a true samurai.

As far as Charos doing it, he’s a stinking dragon with muscles that dwarf humans.

Re: The Book of Akumaken

The idea that Akumaken's mask impairs his vision is hilarious and is now the only explanation that I will personally accept.

I find similar hilarity in the image of Charos flapping his wings to create a gust of wind strong enough to make anyone stab themselves with their spear, even the mighty samurai.

Re: The Book of Akumaken

He (1) hates them and (2) has a thematic vulnerability to them. Now go on about your business.

At least he can sometimes lower the attack of enemies, who might decide to attack another Samurai adjacent to it? Well, it's better than nothing. C'est la vie!

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

I admitted as much in my post.

I'm just always looking for something that can help the Samurai, but unfortunately Tomoe Gozen is the only C3V/SoV figure that I've found so far that fits the bill. Akumaken's sculpt looks excellent as a Ronin and I have fun using him as a solid standalone hero, but a part of me was still wishing to find something else to benefit the Samurai a bit.

I know fully well that he is the enemy of Samurai in the lore, but I would argue that this doesn't necessarily mean that they can't work well together in the game. There are many examples of synergy between units with little to no relation, or in some cases even on opposite sides. Sir Hawthorne bonds just finely with the Knights of Weston, despite having betrayed them, after all.

Re: The Book of Akumaken

If Akumaken is adjacent to a friendly Torin and is attacked by a non adjacent figure's normal attack and rolls enough shields to kill the attacking figure, does he get a marker for Demonblade? Or are the wounds technically dealt by Torin since it is his ability?

EDIT: Should have read Torin's card more carefully, as it explicitly states that the damage comes from Torin.
