Released alongside SP Rozie YEL, SP Kakunsa PUR arrives into the game with the Power of Love, and alongside her Universe 2 comrades, has helped completely revive the Female WarriorsTag.
Whereas SP Rozie YEL is better for mid to late game, SP Kakunsa PUR unleashes a devastating torrent of Damage from the beginning of the Match. While her Damage output does drop after 60 timer counts, she still has many other Unique Abilities that not only keep her relevant when alive, but also in death as well.
Roar of Love
Her Main Ability restores her Vanish Gauge by 100%, Draws a Strike Arts Card, and also changes all of her Blast Arts Cards to Strike Arts Cards.
While this only requires 5 timer counts to activate, this can be used at any point of the Match to catch an opponent off guard and thwart a potential Rising Rush attempt, or any Attack for that matter. This Main Ability coupled with her various Strike Attack Buffs give her the potential to kill many Fighters in one Combo.
Thunder of the Wild
For 60 timer counts, she has an additional 40% Strike Damage and reduced Strike Arts Card cost, which makes Combos a breeze.
Hunter of Love
Even after the 60 timer counts expire, SP Kakunsa PUR still has many Unique Abilities that keep her relevant at any point of the Match. If she’s paired with any Female Warrior, she’ll receive 40% Damage inflicted. She’ll also receive an additional 20% Strike Damage if they are a Universe 2 Fighter.
When killed, she restores allied Health by 15% and increases their Damage inflicted by 20%. This synergizes very well with SP Rozie YEL and SP Ribrianne BLU, both of which are crisis oriented Fighters.
It’s not too much of a problem since she’ll be using Strike Arts most of the time, but her toolkit doesn’t do much for her Blast Attack, and her base stat is quite low as well.
Limited Team Options
Her viability, much like SP Ribrianne BLU and SP Rozie YEL, hinges on how viable Female Warriors are. SP Ribrianne BLU has always had a toolkit worthy of being in Z Tier for example, but due to months of neglect for her Tag was rarely seen.
SP Kakunsa PUR has the same problem, but luckily her Teammates should remain relevant for quite a while.
No surprise here, she buffs the Tag and has tons of synergy with the aforementioned Universe 2 Fighters.
If the goal is as much Strike Attack as possible, this is the way to go. Otherwise, Awakened Romantic Drive gives a better all-around stat Boost.
Draw a Strike Arts Card next. Restores own Vanishing Gauge by 100%. Changes own Blast Arts Cards to Strike Arts Cards. Requirements: 5 timer counts must elapse.
The Thunder of the Wild
The following effects occur from battle start for 60 timer counts: -10 to own Strike Arts cost. +40% to Strike damage inflicted.
Hunter of Love
The following effects occur when this character enters the battlefield: +40% to damage inflicted if a "Tag: Female Warrior" other than this character is a battle member. Additional +20% to Strike damage inflicted if a "Tag: Universe 2" other than this character is also a battle member. Restores own Ki by 20 when this character evades an enemy attack with a Vanishing Step. Applies the following effects to allies when this character is defeated: Restores health by 15%. +20% to damage inflicted.
She’s a bit one dimensional in her Attack and somewhat fragile, but her Damage output is absolutely devastating.
SP Kakunsa PUR is similar to SP Golden Frieza GRN in the sense that she’s very early-game oriented, but she also manages to stay relevant the entire game regardless, even in death as she permanently Buffs and Heals Teammates when killed.
Similar to SP Ribrianne BLU, she has access to one of the most powerful Extra Moves in the game - Lovely Pose. This Extra Move Debuffs the entire opposing Team while simultaneously Buffing her own allies.
