Rabbit's Reviews Odysseus
NA Release Date: 03/2022
Introduction

White Day 2020 introduces the summonable version of Odysseus—a bit late relative to Atlantis, but better late than never, I suppose. As an SSR AoE Arts Rider, Odysseus suffers from a direct comparison with Da Vinci—they do different things, but Odysseus doesn’t have that much to recommend him over the other. His most notable advantage is that he can spook, and the difference in power level is pretty appropriate for the limited-versus-non-limited dichotomy. He’s a strong if unexciting AoE DPS—quite good as generic AoE Servants go, but nothing really special.

Conclusion

Odysseus really does have a lot going in his favor, with strong (non-interluded) sustained damage, good survivability, a bit of utility, and excellent cards. He’s relatively top-of-the-line as “straightforward” Arts attackers go, with lots of good tools but nothing that really sets him apart (except arguably his cards). He’s a strong pull if you run Arts teams—and a strong spook in general—but probably not a Servant to target for gameplay reasons, especially with Rider Da Vinci as an option.
