How to Build Up Groove

What is Groove?

NEO TWEWY Groove

Groove is the percentage meter located at the top center of your screen during combat. Build up Groove by performing Beatdrop combos on enemies. If you don't perform a Beatdrop combo, your Groove will reduce over time.

Does Groove Carry Over?

If you finish a battle with unused Groove, 70% of it will carry over to your next battle. During Chain Battles, Groove carries over in full between Reductions. Running away from a battle will cause Groove to revert to 0.

Use Beatdrops to Build Up Groove

When the circular Beatdrop Gauge appears on-screen, attack the monster with another character's pysch before the timer runs out in order to Drop the Beat. Dropping the Beat adds a base 15% to your Groove, while Dropping the Beat during a Mashup adds 5%. Progressing through the game will allow Beatdrops to add more Groove.

Hit the Sweet Spot For More Groove

Once your Groove is at 100% or higher, your team can perform a Mashup attack, which is a significantly powerful combo Psych. In terms of dealing damage, a Mashup Attack multiplies the Pin in use's ATK stat by the number of people standing on your team. Max Groove increases to 200% at the start of Week 2, Day 3. Performing a mashup at 200% deals more damage.

Perform Killer Remix at 300%

You unlock the Killer Remix ability on Week 2, Day 7. Performing a mashup attack at 300% will trigger the Killer Remix, a powerful bombardment of projectiles that also significantly heals your team after use. Additionally, Noise erased during this time have their Pin drop rate multiplied.

How to Perform Killer Remixes

Changing Mashup Pin

The type of Mashup attack depends on the affinity of the Pin that was being used when Groove hits 100%. You can still change the Mashup Pin even after Groove hits 100%. Just perform another Beatdrop with the Pin Affinity you want to use for the Mashup in order to switch it.
