Groom Hinata Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (19) Normal HP ★★★☆☆
Atk (23) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (5) Spd Bane ★★★☆☆
Def (12) No Def IV ★★★★☆
Res (6) No Res IV ★★☆☆☆

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

See the IV Checker for All Units Trait Fruits—How to Change IVs

When using an Ascendant Floret, we recommend getting the next superboon if it fits the hero. If not, consider what stat your hero needs most.

Neutral IVs by default!

As a hero obtainable only through Tempest Trials, Groom Hinata will always have neutral IVs by default. The only way to access IVs for this unit is through using Trait Fruits.

+Atk/-Res

The best IVs for Groom Hinata are +Atk and -Res. His Spd is very low and it cannot be relied upon for follow-up attacks so to effectively increase his damage, it is best to take a +Atk IV. His Res is very low and is of less importance so it is safe to take it as a bane.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Atk IV when merging Groom Hinata to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. With this IV, he reaches 59 Atk at max merges if you include his weapon Mt so Hinata can take out a wide range of units in one hit.

Groom Hinata 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.

Groom Hinata Strengths

Powerful weapon skill with active buffs

Hinata's weapon, Huge Fan+, grants Atk/Def+4 when he has an active buff and Special Cooldown +1. This effect increases Hinata's offense and defense, and speeds up his special trigger.

Atk/Def Bond Increases Offensive Power

Atk/Def Bond 3 increases Hinata's Atk and Def by +5 if he is adjacent to an ally. Since it is an in-combat buff, it stacks with other combat buffs, so it is good to pair with units that have skills like Atk Tactic or Spur Def.

Close Guard Buffs Allies Defenses

With Close Guard, nearby allies gain Def/Res+4 in combat with close ranged attackers. This is a versatile skill that allows Hinata to provide support simply by being near his allies.

Groom Hinata Weaknesses

Low Spd and Low Res

G!Hinata has low Spd and Res, so much so that it is very easy for him to get one-shotted by magic attackers. Be mindful of his positioning, and make sure he stays away from magic attackers.
