Rabbit's Reviews Summer Melusine
NA Release Date: 08/2025

Melusine is one of the best AoE Arts units in the game. She’s probably better than Spish as a whole—she loses a bit of neutral damage in exchange for getting two niches and much easier looping—but unfortunately she launches in a world where Summer Ibuki also exists and makes her a lot less impressive. Melusine is strong enough to make her a good pick for a dedicated AoE Arts unit if you somehow don’t already have one, but most established players probably have favored options already, and for anyone who doesn’t, you’re still better off waiting for Summer Ibuki to come back around. This leaves Melusine as both a great Servant and an easy skip.

Melusine is great. The only reason she isn’t more eye-catching is we got Summer Ibuki last year. Even outside of Summer Ibuki, Tez is still probably a better unit on the whole just by virtue of the sheer amount of utility he brings, plus his more common class-advantage context. There’s also Avenger Nito to consider, who has a lot of the same strengths as Melusine, with the trade-off of being spookable but having less damage. The end result of this is that despite being an amazing unit, Melusine doesn’t really stand out. She’s one more top-end Arts unit in a field full of them, which means her value is mostly contingent on not already having alternatives. This isn’t a bad place for a new Servant to be, to be clear, but it does make her a pretty easy skip in most cases, despite her overall strength.
