|Substats||DEF%, CRIT DMG, CRIT Rate, Energy Recharge|
This Itto build focuses on maximizing his DEF to deal huge damage. The Husk is the best artifact for him in this build, with DEF% being the Main stat for the Sands piece. You will want to have around 120-130% Energy Recharge to comfortably use Burst off cooldown.
|For a Main DPS Itto|
Itto's primary source of damage comes from his Charged Attacks and Elemental Burst. Leveling both, with Normal Attacks being the priority, is the ideal path. Though not as important, his Elemental Skill still does decent damage, so its saved for last.
|1st||Husk of Opulent Dreams||
2-PC: DEF +30%
4-PC: A character equipped with this Artifact set will obtain the Curiosity effect in the following conditions: When on the field, the character gains 1 stack after hitting an opponent with a Geo attack, triggering a maximum of once every 0.3s. When off the field, the character gains 1 stack every 3s. Curiosity can stack up to 4 times, each providing 6% DEF and a 6% Geo DMG Bonus. When 6 seconds pass without gaining a Curiosity stack, 1 stack is lost.

Bonus Stat: Energy Recharge 8.0%

|Recommended Weapons||How to Get|
|Itto Main DPS Teams|
Itto requires multiple Geo party members with Gorou as his core partner to truly shine as a Geo DPS.
This standard Mono Geo team comp focuses on dealing only Geo damage and easily regenarating everyone's Energy thanks to having a single shared Element. Zhongli works particularly well here due to his Pillar resonating with 2 other Geo structures.
The same principle from the Mono Geo team applies here, but with the flex role acting as the key to deal with special enemies such as ones that have Pyro or Electro Shields. This also opens up the possiblity of creating the Crystalize effect.
Itto doesn't perform his best without his dedicated Geo supports (Gorou mostly), but that doesn't mean he isn't viable! Any characters that act as an off-field sub-DPS or support can still work.
This is Itto's best Geo team without any 5-stars other than the Geo Traveler. The Geo Traveler is a good free option if you need a third Geo character to fully utilize Gorou's skills.
Stay a While and Listen Up
After using Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil!, Arataki Itto gains 2 stacks of Superlative Superstrength. After 1s, Itto will gain 1 stack of Superlative Superstrength every 0.5s for 1.5s.
Gather 'Round, It's a Brawl!
After using Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil!, each party member whose Element is Geo will decrease that skill's CD by 1.5s and restore 6 Energy to Arataki Itto.
CD can be decreased by up to 4.5s in this manner. Max 18 Energy can be restored in this manner.
Horns Lowered, Coming Through
Increases the level of Masatsu Zetsushi: Akaushi Burst! by 3.
Maximum upgrade level is 15.
Jailhouse Bread and Butter
When the Raging Oni King state caused by Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil! ends, all nearby party members gain 20% DEF and 20% ATK for 10s.
10 Years of Hanamizaka Fame
Increases the level of Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil! by 3.
Maximum upgrade level is 15.
Arataki Itto, Present!
Arataki Itto's Charged Attacks deal +70% CRIT DMG. Additionally, when he uses Arataki Kesagiri, he has a 50% chance to not consume stacks of Superlative Superstrength.
|Rating||Constellation Effect / Merits|
• Itto gains 2 stacks of Superlative Superstrength after using his Elemental Burst.
• Itto will also gain a total of 3 stacks of Superlative Superstrength after 1.5s.
|C2||★★★||• After using Elemental Burst, each party member whose Element is Geo (maximum 3 characters) will decrease that skill's CD by 1.5s and restore 6 Energy to Arataki Itto.|
If you want Itto's constellations, C1 and C2 will make Itto's rotation easier in a full Geo team comp! Nevertheless, Itto is still a great Main DPS even with no constellations, and can reach his full potential with the right team comp and rotations.
Itto gaining Superlative Superstrength Stacks
When using Itto, your main priority is collecting Superlative Superstrength stacks, which Itto can get by using his Normal Attacks or Elemental Skill.
Itto can gain a maximum of 5 stacks of Superlative Supertrength at a time. This is indicated by the glowing markers on Itto's back.
|1||2nd and 4th Normal Attacks
Whenever Itto's 2nd or 4th hit Normal Attacks hit opponents, Itto can gain 1 or 2 stacks, respectively.
|2||Deal DMG with Elemental Skill
When Ushi, from your Elemental Skill, lands and deals DMG to opponents, Itto will gain one stack of Superlative Superstrength.
|3||Ushi is Attacked by Opponents
When Ushi, from your Elemental Skill, is attacked by opponents, Itto will gain one stack of Superlative Superstrength, with a limit of one every 2 seconds .
|4||Ushi leaves the field
When Ushi, from your Elemental Skill, leaves the field or gets destroyed, Itto will gain one stack of Superlative Superstrength.
|5||Elemental Burst 1st and 3rd Normal Attacks
When Itto activates his Elemental Burst form, his 1st and 3rd hit Normal Attacks can now give stacks of Superlative Strength.
Charged Attacks - Arataki Kesagiri Slashes
After gaining Superlative Superstrength stacks, you can use his Special Charged Attacks, which deal increased DMG with no stamina consumption. Itto will also receive increased resistance to interruption.
When using the final Superlative Superstrength stack, Itto will finish it up with a very powerful finisher that deals a huge chunk of DMG.
Elemental Skill - Matatsu Zetsugi: Akaushi Burst!
Itto's Elemental Skill can summon and throw Ushi, the auxiliary member of the Arataki Gang! Ushi deals devastating amount of AoE Geo DMG when it hits opponents.
It is recommended to use Ushi while Itto is in Elemental Burst when it is available, as the DEF to ATK buff from your Burst will immensely buff your skill's DMG.
Hold down your Elemental Skill button to aim Ushi. This has quite a long range and can snipe enemies in far distances.
Ushi can taunt, which can draw enemies towards itself for distraction. Furthermore, Ushi can gain 1 Superlative Superstrength stack for Itto between 2 seconds of being hit.
Ushi is considered a Geo construct and has its own HP meter.
Elemental Burst - Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil!
Itto's Elemental Burst, Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil!, will infuse his Normal, Charged, and Plunge Attacks with the Geo Element, and gain an ATK bonus based on his DEF. In addition, he can now gain stacks on the 1st and 3rd Normal Attacks.
Itto will have decreased Physical and Elemental RES during the Burst Duration, but will gain increased ATK and ATK SPD, making him a force to be reckoned with!

|Perform up to 4 consecutive strikes.
When the 2nd and 4th strikes hit opponents, Itto will gain 1 or 2 stacks of Superlative Superstrength, respectively.
Max 5 stacks. Triggering this effect refreshes the current duration of any existing stacks.
Additionally, Itto's Normal Attack combo does not immediately reset after sprinting or using his Elemental Skill: ''Masatsu Zetsugi: Akaushi Burst!''
When holding to perform a Charged Attack, Itto unleashes a series of Arataki Kesagiri slashes without consuming Stamina. Instead, each Arataki Kesagiri slash consumes 1 stack of Superlative Superstrength. When the final stack is consumed, Itto delivers a powerful final slash.
If no stacks of Superlative Superstrength are available, Itto will perform a single Saichimonji Slash.
Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
|Attribute||Effect (Lvl 1)|
|Arataki Kesagiri Combo Slash DMG||91.2%|
|Arataki Kesagiri Final Slash DMG||190.9%|
|Superlative Superstrength Duration||60.0s|
|Saichimonji Slash DMG||90.5%|
|Saichimonji Slash Stamina Cost||20.0|

Adjusts throwing angle.
Ushi will remain on the field and provide support.
• Taunts surrounding opponents.
• When Ushi takes DMG, Arataki Itto gains 1 stack of Superlative Superstrength every 2s.
• Inherits HP based on a percentage of Itto's Max HP.
• It will grant Arataki Itto 1 stack of Superlative Superstrength when it leaves.
Ushi is considered a Geo construct. Arataki Itto can only deploy 1 Ushi on the field at any one time.
The name of this technique is derived from Onibudou (a light novel series written by Junkichi). However, calling it "Onisatsu Zetsugi" probably constitutes copyright infringement - not to mention how Itto himself is an oni and all...
|Attribute||Effect (Lvl 1)|
|Time to show 'em the might of the Arataki Gang! For a time, Itto lets out his inner Raging Oni King, wielding his Oni King's Kanabou in battle.
Raging Oni King State
• Converts Itto's Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks to Geo DMG. This cannot be overriden.
• Increases Itto's Normal Attack SPD. Also increases his ATK based on his DEF.
• The 1st and 3rd combos of his Normal Attack will grant Itto Superlative Superstrength stacks when it hits opponents.
• Decreased Itto's Elemental and Physical RES by 20%.
The Raging Oni King state will be cleared when Itto leaves the field.
This is the pinnacle technique of the ultimate fighting style (according to Itto). It would be pointless for Arataki Itto to reference any other fighting styles to improve his own, for he, and no other, is the strongest, most terrible oni in the land.
Shouta thinks it looks really cool.
|Attribute||Effect (Lvl 1)|
|ATK Bonus||57.6% DEF|
|ATK SPD Bonus||10%|
|When Arataki Itto uses consecutive Arataki Kesagiri, he obtains the following effects:
• Each slash increases the ATK SPD of the next slash by 10%. Max ATK SPD increase is 30%.
• Increases his resistance to interruption.
These effects will be cleared once he stops performing consecutive slashes.
|Arataki Kesagiri DMG is increased by 35% of Arataki Itto's DEF.|
|When a party member uses attacks to obtain wood from a tree, they have a 25% chance to get an additional log of wood.|

Arataki Itto Story and Profile
|Title||Leader of the Arataki Gang of Hanamizaka|
|Skins & Namecards|
|Ayato||Now he's an interesting case. Pitting docile Onikabuto against each other in battle... heh, that's a first... I was only speaking in polite platitudes when I gave him that little pep talk, but to my surprise he started calling me "bro"... To this day, he calls me "my bro Ayato" without the faintest idea of my true identity. It's quite alright by me, though, I have nothing against his... unique character.|
|Heizou||I've done a few favors before to deliver Roasted Lavender Melon to him in prison. This one time, I overheard him singing. The lyrics... were complete trash, but I gotta say — he has a pretty good set of pipes. And it's not every day you come across an inmate who's in the mood to sing their heart out.|
|Kirara||He's an oni, but he gets along with humans perfectly - he even has his own gang! Oh, I'm so jealous. Maybe I should go ask him for some advice.|
|Sara||Tsk... I can't help but get a little irate when his name comes up. He kicked up a big fuss when I confiscated his Vision, by far the noisiest person... no, the noisiest oni I've ever encountered. He showed me was enough of a man to admit defeat, but the rematch he insisted upon... Tsk... To this day, I still don't want to talk about it. If you really must know, you can go and ask him yourself.|
|Sayu||Why does he have to make such a racket? And how did he get so tall!?|
|Shinobu||The boss has a lot of unpleasant memories from his past, but he still manages to stay positive. I'd say that kind of resilience is pretty rare. He treats us well and his character has a good effect on everyone in the gang. Of course, it's never an excuse for him to run amok with no consideration for others. Just let me know if he ever causes you any trouble and I'll be sure to make him regret ever being rude to you.|
|Thoma||Hmm... Word on the street is that he's quite a character — apparently, he even has youkai heritage. Have you met him? If you two are close, maybe you could introduce me sometime. It's good to make friends from all walks of life... youkai included!|
|Yae Miko||Ah, the oddball oni. Heh, I hear that he's been quite a pain for the Kujou Clan. The Tenryou Commission wanted to remove his messages on the bulletin board, claiming that they were "harmful to the public order." I made quite sure they stayed put, haha. He's an entertaining character... you don't often see oni like him in this day and age.|
Duels: Oh, he may look scary, but he is very popular with the children. However, he can be very competitive. Every time we play with the children, it always turns into a showdown between him and me. For example, we'd drink a bowl of ramen soup in one go, or try to eat sour plums without making any faces. The children will cheer us both on and try to guess the winner. And when that happens... well, then I can't let him beat me, right?
Arataki's Gang: Arataki's gang? Huh!? So he isn't just someone with too much free time on his hands?
Haha, I only wish I could have met Ayato sooner. He really taught me something. "You can kindle the warrior spirit even in the weakest of bugs"... Yep, I really took that one to heart. If it weren't for those words of wisdom, I'm pretty sure I would have given up beetle fighting after losing for the 780th time... Yeah, I guess sometimes it takes a warrior to understand a warrior. When we're playing trading card games or battling beetles, we're always totally on the same wavelength.
Oh yeah, the doggy general in the resistance... Hey, I've gotta hand it to him, he may be on the small side, but he's got quite the fighting spirit. Also, he gives off this vibe that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, almost as if he understands my innermost feelings... I mean, I've barely met the guy, so that's kinda weird.
Word on the street is that he blocked the Musou no Hitotachi after you escaped from Tenshukaku. Seriously? 'Cause I mean, that is awesome! Who knows how he pulled it off. He, now that I think about it, he's from a fallen clan, and I'm from a fallen clan... That kinda makes us equals, haha! Yeah, so next time someone attacks you, it's my turn to block the blade!
During the Vision Hunt Decree, the Shogun had to send her top tengu in person to get my Vision off me. Heh, means she must have found me to be quite the pain in the neck. But, y'know, she's abolished the Vision Hunt Decree now, so no hard feelings, I guess. As long as she's learned her lesson, of course. 'Cause if she pulls something like that again, this old pain in the neck will be back with a vengeance.
You know what, yeah, she beat me during the Vision Hunt Decree. I'm not ashamed to admit it. When you lose, you admit defeat, and when you screw up, you take it on the chin, like a man! And anyway, let's not forget which one of us won't agree to a rematch — her, the tengu warrior! It's just a sumo street fight, I mean, what's she so afraid of? If she keeps snubbing me, I'm gonna have to stop calling her Kujou Tengu and start calling her Kujou Chicken! Heh, we'll see what she thinks of that.
All I did was give her a little pat on the head this one time when she wasn't looking, and now, she pounces to attack every time she lays eyes on me. Haha, what can I say? Tanuki are adorable! What am I supposed to do — not pat one on the head? ...Oh yeah, and that's the other thing — she beats you up for calling her a tanuki, too! What's up with that? I mean, a tanuki's what she's going for, right? Sheesh, talk about getting your fur all ruffled over nothing...
Nobody questions my leadership in the gang, what I say goes — except when it comes to Shinobu. She's always challenging everything I say. And not only that — all the hard-earned loot I bring back and share with everyone? She goes and returns it! But also, she gets me out of every mess we get ourselves into, so I'll let it slide. Besides, I don't wanna get on her bad side... An angry Shinobu would make my life a nightmare.
Some of the boys have been telling me that he was the star of the show at the Vision Hunt Ceremony. I'm like — are you kidding me??? How come he gets his own special ceremony!? Was the hundredth Vision supposed to be, like, stronger than the other ninety-nine, or something? Pff, nah, it can't have been that, 'cause, uh, hello! They would've chosen me if that's what they were going for.
About the Lady with Fox Ears
I crushed that Kitsune Ramen eating contest we had. Even all that Fried Tofu couldn't stand in my way — she didn't come close to beating me! ... I was, uh, bedridden for more than a month after that, but you know what? I'd rather lie in bed a winner than walk away a loser! So... Anyway, I had the last laugh, 'cause she had to foot the bill for 32 bowls of noodles! Haha!
Hmph, she's always showing off her fancy fireworks and toys to the kids. Well, I'm sick of it! Nobody steals my thunder! I'm the one that's supposed to be adored by the kids! Me! That goes for you too, you're siding with me on this, okay... Huh? Whaddya mean, you're not a kid? Eh, details. If you're shorter than me, you're a kid as far I'm concerned.
