It feels as if 2019 has involved a lot of effort on the part of the game’s developers to democratize Quick, with the addition of a few useful low-rarity Quick units (Barti and Paris), a pair of type-neutral full supports who can slot into certain Quick teams (Asclepius and Jinako), the nonsense that is Chen Gong, and a plethora of gacha SRs who make for interesting single-Skadi teams. Santa Night caps off this trend, roughly matching the utility of the Lakshmibai-likes, but with the added benefits of being entirely free and packing very high AoE damage. If you have the tools for high-investment top-end Quick setups, Night won’t do much for you, but if you like to run low-to-mid-range Quick setups, she has the potential to be a godsend.

Night makes a pretty strong case for being the best of the Lakshmibai types. She has strong offensive utility and some good defensive utility, on top of good damage and (most importantly) being free. The other three—Lakshmibai, Summer Carmilla, and Jane—all have advantages, and Carmilla in particular has a lot in her favor that might put her over the top, but Night is really excellent all-around and can definitely open up interesting possible single-Skadi and no-Skadi Quick comps.
