|12||2||Effective against flying foes. If unit is not adjacent to an ally, inflicts penalty on foe’s Atk/Def during combat = 5 + any current penalty on each of those stats.

◯ = Stat gains +4 with a superboon, ✕= Stat goes down by -4 with a superbane, - = No assets or flaws
The best IVs for Plegian Raphael are +Atk and -HP. A higher Atk stat allows Plegian Rapahel to generally deal more damage, that is his primary goal in the field. Additionally, it is a superboon so you should take advantage of it as much as possible. His HP is of less importance so you can safely take it as his bane.
We recommend a +Atk IV when merging Plegian Raphael to 10. This is for the same reasons as above. With Odd Follow-Up 3 or Brave Bow+, he can deal lots of damage in odd-numbered turns. Check out our Brave Bow build to learn more.
Note: Stats bonuses from skills are not taken into account.
Instead of relying on Odd Follow-Up 3 to score multiple hits, this build relies on Brave Bow+ and Bold Fighter 3. Death Blow 4 and Ignis will help increase his damage massively and Armored Boots grants him the mobility to initiate attacks for Bold Fighter to work.
Barst - The Hatchet (3★)
Selena - Cutting Wit (3★)
Silas - Loyal Knight (4★)
Nowi - Eternal Witch (5★)
Leon - True of Heart (4★)
Henry - Twisted Mind (4★)
Thea - Stormy Flier (4★)
Tiki - Torpid Dragon (5★)
Lissa - Pure Joy (5★)
Death Blow 3 is very helpful in increasing his damage especiall during odd-numbered turns with Odd Follow-Up 3. He will be deceptively bulky running this build as Atk Smoke 3's debuff will be doubled by Plegian Bow+. Chill Def 3's debuff will be also doubled so expect him to hit like a truck when he initiates attacks on those odd-numbered turns.

Plegian Raphael's weapon cannot currently be refined. This section will be updated if it becomes refineable in the future!
|Raphael - Muscle-Monger Roles|
|Physical Wall||Magic Wall||Effective Weapon||Movement Assist|
|Exclusive Skill||All-Range Counterattack||Recovery||Refresher|
Plegian Raphael 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.
Plegian Bow+ inflicts -5 Atk/Def + doubles any current penalty of a foe on Atk/Def when Plegian Raphael is not adjacent to any allied unit on the field! This is effectively a minimum of +5 Atk +5 Def/Res buff when he is solo on the field.
Make sure to pay attention to Plegian Raphael's positioning in relation to his allies to make the most out of his kit as losing out on that massive power boost may lead him to be very inefficient.
If you like the weapon effect, but you don't like Plegian Raphael as a unit, you can always fodder it off to your favorite bow unit.
Plegian Raphael's Odd Follow-Up 3, allows him to guarantee follow-up attacks in both phases. It also blocks enemy follow-up attacks. This is a very powerful effect, but it only works in odd-numbered turns (e.g. 1st, 3rd, and so on). Since Plegian Raphael is not at full power in odd-numbered phases, try to engage combat only in even-numbered turns.
This can be tricky to use in fast-paced game modes like Aether Raids and Resonant Battles. Turns are limited in these maps so it will be hard to utilize skills like this.
Atk Smoke 3 is a simple skill that inflicts -7 Atk on foes within 2 spaces of target. It might be hard to land on ideal spots properly as Plegian Raphael has limited mobility, but if it procs with perfect timing, Raphael and his team can easily swoop in, take advantage of the reduced damage output and finish off the enemy team!
Odd Follow-Up 3's catch is that it does not work in even-numbered turns. As mentioned, this makes him hard to utilize in fast-paced game modes. It also might not be smart to run Plegian Raphael in auto-battle.
Plegian Raphael enjoys the high stats of an armored unit, but this means that he suffers from armored movement as well. Without the use of proper Sacred Seals like Armored Boots and skills like Armored March 3, he will be crippled by very limited movement. It will be most likely that the enemy will get to her first before he is able to initiate. If that is the case, it wil be hery hard for him to use Atk Smoke 3 correctly.
Fear not as Odd Follow-Up 3 still procs when receiving attacks!
Plegian Raphael's Res only sits at 23 at Lv.40. This makes it easy for magic users to take him out. Be mindful of Raphael's positioning in relation to magical units that can easily take him out.
Plegian Raphael takes 1.5x damage from armor-effective weapons like Armorslayer+ or Hammer+, and one blow from these types of weapons is sure to take him/her down. Make sure you know what weapons you are up against before hopping too far into the line of battle!
|Should You Unlock Potential for this Hero?|
We recommend that you use Unlock Potential to bring Raphael - Muscle-Monger from 4 Stars to 5 Stars. Raphael - Muscle-Monger is a very useful armored bow attacker, so we recommend you Unlock Potential for Raphael - Muscle-Monger if your team lacks a strong armored bow attacker.

|Value of Skills||★★★★★|
Plegian Raphael can be used to inherit the skills Odd Follow-Up 3 or Atk Smoke 3. However, Plegian Raphael is a powerful special hero that can provide lots of firepower for your lineups. Please think carefully before fodderring him off. You can also get his Plegian Bow+ off him if you have a use for it.
He is a 4★ demote so getting multiple copies of him is very feasible even for F2P players. We suggest securing at least 1 copy before getting his skills.
Plegian Raphael is a limited time Hero who can be pulled from a Special Heroes Summoning Event. They do not appear in regular summons.
Note: Not currently a featured hero in any Summon events.
