Rabbit's Reviews Nemo
NA Release Date: 11/2022

The Imaginary Scramble event brings with it two SSR Servants, one limited and one not. Nemo is the non-limited of the two, adding a longtime story ally to the general summon pool. Unfortunately, although Nemo’s a great character with great animations, his gameplay leaves a lot to be desired. Nemo is heavily dependent on a pair of pretty limited niches, going from pretty good within them to really bad without them. To make matters worse, he’s competing with a welfare and a 3* who are both pretty much strictly better, which leaves him as one of the more unappealing SSRs of the year from a gameplay standpoint.

At first glance, Nemo might seem to be in a similar place as Hajime was a few weeks ago—ST Arts means Castoria synergy means good by default, but the free alternatives are generally better. There are a few key differences here, though, the most prominent of which is that Hajime is a really good servant in his own right, whereas Nemo’s value would be highly questionable even without the free alternatives. Nemo is strong on his favored fields, but so much of his kit is dependent on that niche that in the vast majority of cases he winds up as one of the weakest ST SSRs in the game. To make matters worse, Nemo has the disadvantage of being an SSR and therefore expensive. It’s a lot harder to bump Nemo’s NP levels to the point where he competes more effectively with the free competition than it is to do the same for Hajime or, say, Rider Murasaki. This is not a Servant I would recommend targeting even in a world where Ryouma and Mandricardo didn’t exist. With them around, though, Nemo’s a huge “why bother?”
