Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (19) Normal HP ★★☆☆☆
Atk (18) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (16) Spd Boon ★★★★☆
Def (4) No Def IV ★★☆☆☆
Res (1) No Res IV ★★★☆☆

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

+Atk/-Def

The best IVs for Ninja Zihark are +Atk and -Def. Since his weapon can nail second strikes, and his kit is designed to make it easy for him to nail quad-attacks, getting a +Atk IV would be best in significantly increasing his damage. His Def is of less importance so it can be safely taken as his bane.

+Atk for a +10 Merge

We recommend a +Atk IV when merging Ninja Zihark to 10. This is for the same reasons as above and at this point, he can take out a lot of units out even with just 2 strikes.

Ninja Zihark 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.

Ninja Zihark Strengths

Nail consistent quad-attacks with Ninja Katana+!

Ninja Katana+ is similar to a Brave weapon in the sense that it allows its user to score 2 strikes in one attack if they initiate damage. This is an extra attack and not a follow-up attack so when you are able to get an outspeed, Ninja Zihark can land 4 strikes in one action. This makes him a very powerful player phase attacker. Another key difference between his weapon and Brave weapons is that Ninja Katana+ grants +4 Spd unlike Brave weapons that inflict a Spd penalty. This makes scoring quad-attacks very easy for Zihark.

Buffs an ally with the highest Spd/Def

Ninja Zihark's C skill Spd/Def Gap gives Spd/Def+5 to the ally with the highest Spd and Def total value.This buff activates regardless of map positions, so you can essentially edit your team and determine beforehand which ally you will want the buff to be cast on. It allows affected unit to be extra tankier to physical units, even the faster ones.

High base Spd!

Ninja Zihark's base Spd is 46. This makes it very easy for him to score follow-up attacks on opponents. Try to get skills like Swift Sparrow 3 or Fury 4 to improve his rates of follow-up attacks even more.

Ninja Zihark Weaknesses

Weak defenses

Ninja Zihark's defensive stats are not very high and considering that Ninja Katana+ inflicts -4 Def/Res to him, he is very vulnerable to strong attacks. Losing him in battle would be detrimental to your team as he provides lots of knock-out potential on a wide range of units. Use strategy to position him away from units that can easily take him out.

Inheriting Ninja Katana+

Ninja Zihark can be used to inherit the skill Ninja Katana+. However, Zihark is a pretty powerful unit. He is also a special hero whom you can only get from specific banners. Please think carefully before fodderring him off.

It is easy to get multiple copies of him as he is a 4★ demote. Carry on passing down his sword weapon to your units that use Brave Sword+ if you have multiples!

    • Thank you so much bro. That was really helpful. Will try to have my +10 merge project ASAP. I need 200 more orbs to try and pull for that. I hope there will be good 4* units coming on the future (maybe with the new year).
