    IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)

    +Atk/-Spd

    The best IVs for Fallen Lyon are +Atk and -Spd. A higher Atk stat allows him to add to his already high damage output. This increases the range of units that he can take out in one turn. His his low Spd isn't getting any better, so it is the ideal dump stat.

    +Atk for a +10 Merge

    We recommend a +Atk IV when merging Fallen Lyon to 10. With a +Atk IV, Lyon's Atk stat can reach 64 which is incredibly high.

    Fallen Lyon is a ranged magic 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 Res stat.

    Fallen Lyon's Strengths

    Strong Against Ranged Units and Colorless Units

    Blood Tome reduces damage from AoE specials by 80% and reduces attack damage by 50% if the source of damage is using a bow, dagger, tome or staff. It also makes Lyon strong against colorless units by inflicting weapon-triangle disadvantage to the foe and grants weapon-triangle advantage to himself.

    Can Solo Through Bonus Doubler and Rouse Atk/Res

    Rouse Atk/Res 3 grants +6 Atk/Res to Lyon whenever he is not adjacent to allied units at the start of the turn. It is pretty easy to trigger and can be doubled by Bonus Doubler 3 into a whopping +12 Atk/Res. Being adjacent to allies neutralizes all of these bonuses so be mindful of Fallen Lyon's positioning in relation to his allies!

    Guarantees Counterattacks

    Fallen Lyon has access to Null C-Disrupt 3 which neutralizes effects that prevent Lyon from executing counterattacks. Since Lyon is strong against long-ranged units, he is a great counter to heroes like Veronica or units using Firesweep Bow+. This also makes Lyon a great unit in Aether Raids.

    Fallen Lyon's Weaknesses

    Low Spd

    While he has pretty good defensive stats, Fallen Lyon has a low Spd stat, so a speedy red unit can take him out quickly. He needs to avoid units like Fallen Ike or Sothis who can easily gain follow-up attacks on him and deal massive damage.

    Inherting Bonus Doubler 3, Null C-Disrupt 3 and Rouse Atk/Res 3

    Fallen Lyon can be used to inherit the skills Bonus Doubler 3, Null C-Disrupt 3 and Rouse Atk/Res 3. These are all excellent skills, but as Fallen Lyon is a pretty good unit in his own right, we recommend training and building around him instead.
