HP (16) Normal HP ★★★☆☆
Atk (16) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (8) No Spd IV ★★★★★
Def (4) Def Boon ★☆☆☆☆
Res (8) No Res IV ★★★★☆

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

+Spd/-Def

The best IVs for Halloween Sakura are +Spd and -Def. She has a fair Spd stat, but a +IV will help her avoid more follow-up attacks and score more of her own. Her defenses are not that important, but since she relies on her Res to deal more damage with Glacies, she should go with a -Def IV instead.

Halloween Sakura is a ranged physical attacker (range = 2). 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.

Halloween Sakura Strengths

Slows Enemy Specials

Guard 3 inflicts special cooldown charge -1 per attack if Halloween Sakura' HP ≥ 80% at the start of combat. This allows Halloween Sakura and her allies to take less damage from enemies. This skill is also very helpful in Grand Hero Battles where delaying enemy specials is very important as enemy specials in those maps are very powerful.

Additionally, this makes Halloween Sakura a great match-up for units running set-ups that make specials very quick to trigger such as Heavy Blade or Brave Sword as the weapon skill and slapping skills such as Flashing Blade and Quickened Pulse for quick Moonbow or Glimmer activations

Very Strong against magic users

Kitty Paddle+ has the rare effect of being strong against magic foes. Use this to your advantage as that is a wide variety of units that Sakura is strong against. Coupled with Guard 3, Glacies, Warding Stance 3, a colorless attribute and Sakura's decent Res stat, Sakura makes for a strong check against many magic units! This niche role is what Halloween Sakura has over other dagger units.

Halloween Sakura Weaknesses

Raven weapons

Sakura has decent Res and amazing tools against magic users, but if your opponent has access to a Raven tome, they can still deal a considerable amount of damage to Sakura. It might be enough so that a 2nd enemy can swoop in and finish her off. Look out for Cecilia as she has the very powerful Tome of Order, a stronger variant of a Raven tome!

Weak Against Physical Attacks

Halloween Sakura's Def at Lv.40 only sits at 18.. This makes her very frail against physical attackers. Be mindful of Sakura's positioning in relation to physical attackers that can easily take her down. Also be wary of units that can take her out through a counterattack.
