Ryoma - Supreme Samurai: Basic Information

Color / Weapon Type / Move Type
Rarity
What Kind of Character Are They? A Water-Type Legendary Hero
・Flying-type unit, can counterattack from any range
・Deals +10 damage when special triggers

Legendary Ryoma Skills at 5★


Might: 16  Range: 1
Enables counterattack regardless of distance if this unit is attacked.

Cooldown Count = 2
Boosts damage dealt by 50%.

If foe initiates combat, grants Atk/Spd +4 during combat.

Neutralizes "effective against flying" bonuses. Deals +7 damage. If unit's Spd > foe's Spd, reduces damage from attacks during combat and from area-of-effect Specials (excluding Rokkr area-of-effect Specials) by percentage = difference between stats x 4 (max 40%).

Legendary Ryoma Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (17) Normal HP ★★☆☆☆
Atk (24) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (11) No Spd IV ★★★★★
Def (6) Def Bane ★★★☆☆
Res (5) No Res IV ★★☆☆☆

◯ = Stat gains +4 with a superboon, ✕= Stat goes down by -4 with a superbane, - = No assets or flaws

+Spd/-HP

The best IVs for L!Ryoma are +Spd and -HP. A higher Spd stat allows L!Ryoma to prevent follow-up attacks and help him make follow-up attacks on his own. This boosts both his offensive and survivability capabilities. L!Ryoma's HP is of much less importance, so it is safe to take as a bane.

Legendary Ryoma Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Legendary Ryoma's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
Unit can counterattack regardless of foe's range.
If unit initiates combat or if unit is within 2 spaces of an ally, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4 during combat and neutralizes effects that guarantee foe's follow-up attacks and effects that prevent unit's follow-up attacks during combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Raijinto

Raijinto's refine gives Ryoma Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4 and also gives him a Null Follow-Up 3 effect.

We recommend getting this refine as he will be able to go toe to toe with units like Fallen Edelgard or Fallen Corrin (M).

L!Ryoma 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 Ryoma is a Water-Type Legendary Hero, and when summoned, you will receive a Water Blessing. During Water Season, allies who appear in a team alongside L!Ryoma will gain HP+3 and Def+4 when they have been given a Water Blessing.

L!Ryoma Strengths

Can Counterattack Regardless of Distance

Raijinto provides L!Ryoma the ability to counterattack enemy units regardless of their range. Because of his access to Glimmer, Bushido, and Kestrel Stance 2, he can be a decent enemy phase unit if you are able to buff his somewhat low defensive stats.

Weapon Refinement Gives Him Null Follow-Up 3

In addition to giving him Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4, refinining Ryoma's weapon will also grant him the Null Follow-Up 3 effect, neutralizing effects that guarantee an enemy unit' follow-up attacks and also effects that prevent him from performing follow-up attacks.

Bushido II Reduces Damage

Bushido II not only neutralizes any effective against flying bonuses against Ryoma, but also reduces damage from enemy units if his Spd is higher.

This is good because Ryoma can tank more hits and will be able to survive ranged attacks.

Atk/Spd inflicted onto a wide area

Legendary Ryoma's C skill, Atk/Spd Rein 3 inflicts -4 Atk/Spd on foes within 2 spaces during combat. It helps both Ryoma and allies as the range is modest and it affects enemies even if Ryoma is not directly part of combat. Ryoma's flying movement makes it easy to position him in effectively utilizing this skill. It is an in-combat buff which makes it easy to stack with other debuffs such as Atk Ploy 3.

Extra Mobility for Infantry and Armored Units

Guidance 3 allows infantry and armored allies move to an adjacent space to L!Ryoma if they are within 2 spaces of him. This allows armored units to potentially move up to 3 spaces in one turn!

L!Ryoma Weaknesses

Weak to blue mage units

Due to his low Res, Ryoma won't be able to take a lot of hits from blue mage units like Reinhardt or Ophelia, as they'll be able to punch through him even with the damage reduction from Bushido II.

Fliers

Legendary Ryoma is best ran on an all-flier team. Here are some top fliers in the current meta to pair Ryoma with (2021). Arguably, New year Peony is the best flier support in the game as of late.

Legendary Ryoma Counters

Bow units and Blue Armors

Ryoma will be easily taken out by high-powered bow units like Shinon. He will also have trouble dealing with powerful blue attribute units like Brave Hector.
