HP (20) Normal HP ★☆☆☆☆
Atk (24) Attack Bane ★★★☆☆

Def (6) Def Boon ★★★★★
Res (4) No Res IV ★★★★☆

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

IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)

+Spd/-HP

The best IVs for Roy are +Spd and -HP. A higher Spd stat allows Roy to deal with less follow-up attacks from foes, increasing his survivability. If you want to focus on one-shotting dragon units, you can go with a +Atk IV instead. Alternatively, if you need Roy to be able to tank more physical attacks, a +Def IV would be a good option as it is also a superboon. His HP is of less importance to him and he can safely take it as a bane.

Roy Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Roy's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
Effective against dragon foes. If foe initiates combat, grants Def/Res+4 during combat.
If unit’s HP ≥ 50% and foe initiates combat, unit makes a guaranteed follow-up attack.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Binding Blade

Binding Blade possesses an effect that is similar to, but stronger than Quick Riposte 3. The effect guarantees follow-up attacks if enemy units initiate combat against Roy. Combined with the +4 Def/Res that is also triggered when foes initiate combat, this makes Roy a formidable unit in the enemy phase if he gets access to some form of healing. Make sure to pair Roy with reliable healing units.

No All Range Counterattack ImageAll-Range Counterattack RecoveryRecovery No Refresher ImageRefresher Assist Not Legendary ImageLegendary/Mythic

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.

Roy Strengths

Defenses Increase when Attacked

Binding Blade grants +4 Def/Res if foes initiate combat against Roy. This stacks with defensive Sacred Seals and skills such as Distant Def 4, allowing Roy to potentially become a rather tanky enemy-phase unit.

Binding Blade Special Refinement

When refined, Binding Blade is not only strong against dragon units such as Idunn, but it also has a built in effect similar to Quick Riposte making him a deadly unit in the enemy phase. If you plan to use Roy, this refine is a must.

Very Strong Against Green Units

Roy has access to Triangle Adept 3 which boosts his Atk by +20% if he gets into combat with green units. This allows Roy to deal with powerful green units with ease. This also makes Roy a valuable unit because the green attribute class is boasts some of the strongest units in the game, and he has the tools to easily take them out.

Reposition Allies Using Shove

Roy's shove can reposition an ally one square ahead. You can use it to help allies initiate attacks on foes that are far from them or put them out of the danger zone.

Roy Weaknesses

Very Weak Against Blue Units

Roy's kit utilizes Triangle Adept 3, which makes him extra strong against green units, but very weak against blue units. He can be one-shot by most offensive blue units so pay attention to his positioning in relation to them, and leave them to Roy's allies so he can focus his firepower on other units.

Inheriting Triangle Adept 3

Roy can be used to inherit the skill Triangle Adept 3. Roy is one of the best candidates for getting Triangle Adept 3. Not only does he learn it at 4★, but he is also a fairly common unit that is perfect to fodder off. If you will not use Roy in your team, it is a good idea to turn him into a combat manual instead.
