IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)

+Spd/-HP

The best IVs for L!Roy are +Spd and -HP. A higher Spd stat allows L!Roy to prevent follow-up attacks and gain even more follow-up attacks of his own. L!Roy can greatly increase both his Atk and Spd through skills, but a +Spd IV helps him avoid follow-up attacks from speedier foes whenever the said buffs are not applied. However, if you're counting on Roy's already high Spd to pull through, a +Atk IV for extra damage per attack is a good option as well.

While a -HP bane will give him -4 to the stat, his defensive stats are in a relatively good spot, so -HP is the best option.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Atk IV when merging L!Roy to 10. At 10 merges, L!Roy's Spd stat will reach 42,, which is more than enough to gain follow-up attacks on most foes, espeically when his Passives are added in. Instead, focus on maxing the damage output with a +Atk boon.

L!Roy is a close physical attacker (range = 1). Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage he deals will be equivalent to his Atk minus the foe's Def stat.

Legendary Roy is a Fire-Type Legendary Hero, and when summoned, you will receive a Fire Blessing. During Fire Season, allies who appear in a team alongside L!Roy will gain HP+3 when they have been given a Fire Blessing. Additionally, L!Roy's stats are treated as 175, so you are matched up with more powerful teams in the Arena.

L!Roy's Strengths

Built-in Distant Counter

Dragonbind is not only powerful against dragons, but it also has the effect of Distant Counter built-in, allowing him to counterattack opponents regardless of range. This frees up his A Slot to equip another useful skill instead, such as his native Bonus Doubler.

Bonus Doubler Enhances Buffs

Bonus Doubler 3 effectively doubles the effects of L!Roy's buffs whenever in combat. For example, if Fortify Def 3 is active on him, it would normally grant him +4 Def. If L!Roy enters combat with Bonus Doubler 3 equipped, this value is doubled, giving him +8 Def instead.

Human Virtue is a Powerful Buff

Whenever L!Roy is adjacent to a non-beast and non-dragonstone unit, Human Virtue grants him and those units a +6 Atk/Spd buff. It is very powerful and easy to trigger buff, making L!Roy a very deadly offfensive and support unit. Take note that these effects are doubled by Bonus Doubler 3 in combat so L!Roy enjoys +12 Atk/Spd while in combat.

L!Roy's Weaknesses

Low Res

L!Roy has a mediocre Res stat, sitting at 26 Res at Lv. 40. If L!Roy is attacked by a magic unit, there is a high possibility that he will be taken out. Always be mindful of L!Roy's positioning in relation to the enemies who pose a threat to him in the enemy phase. Pay extra attention to blue magic users who can take him out at one turn such as Reindhardt.

Legendary Roy Team and Counters

Teammates for L!Roy

Legendary Azura Icon Legendary Azura Nino Icon Nino Thrasir Icon Thrasir Surtr Icon Surtr
Kaden Icon Kaden Dorcas Icon Dorcas Brave Ike Icon Brave Ike Brady Icon Brady

Characters with reliable buffs

L!Roy has access to Bonus Doubler 3, so any buffs applied to him will be doubled. Some good examples would be L!Azura's Prayer Wheel, which grants a bonus to all stats equal to his highest active bonus, or Kaden's Kitsune Fang, which again doubles the bonuses on the unit in combat if they are within 2 spaces of him.

Characters who can deal with blue units

L!Roy, being a red unit, cannot easily deal with blue units. Make sure to pair him up with powerful green units such as Surtr or Brave Ike. You can also consider Nino, who can utilize Bonus Doubler through her buffs, and Thrasir, whose magic attacks can take out units with high Def.

L!Roy Counters

Aversa Icon Aversa Reinhardt Icon Reinhardt Fallen Corrin (F) Icon Fallen Corrin (F) Veronica Icon Veronica

Powerful magic users

L!Roy's weakness is his somewhat low Res stat of 26. If he is attacked by a magic user, especially blue tome users like Reinhardt, there is a high chance that he will be taken out.

Characters that can turn buffs into penalties

L!Roy is very dependent on stacking as many buffs as possible. Because of this, units like Aversa or Fallen Corrin (F) can pose a large threat to him, as they have abilities that can turn buffs into penalties.

Everyone’s counting on me!
I refuse to lose!

I will never back down!

Quotes: Castle

A battle cannot be won alone. So many people support me that I can’t even count them all.
I am grateful to every single one of them. I must be.
In the past, humans and dragons fought. But I believe it’s always possible to reach an understanding.
You look a bit grim, friend. We’re all here for you, so don’t fret!
You can use magic, can you? My teacher told me I’m not cut out for it. Even so, I’d still like to try…
Just a little sword practice. I have a lot to learn, so I feel a lot of pressure to keep at it.

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
Because I won the war against Bern, people think of me as a great Hero. I think of it a little differently...
A truly great Hero is one who can build a world where people can live completely free of care.
A Hero is wise as well. There’s so much to understand about the world, the citizens, and even the dragons.
It’s so much more complex than just being good with a sword.
Coming to this world and getting to speak with so many Heroes—and also getting to know you—has inspired me.
I want to learn even more from you. We can work together to shape the world. I’m counting on you!
