Overview

“That's right, the current ‘me’ is a Dharmapala Girl. Since I'm an oni who protects other oni, being an ally of humans is out of the question…… Fufu.”

An Oni of Dharmapala — in other words, a protector of the oni race —  is the disguise picked up by Shuten Douji, changing her Saint Graph into that of a Caster in the process. Despite her new class, Shuten still displays the characteristic oni physical brutality, as evidenced by her highly offensive skillset and explosive single-target Buster NP.

Shuten’s primary value comes from her burst damage potential. Being a welfare Servant, her easy NP5 means that she already has an edge over her competitors, but Shuten amplifies this with considerable personal buffs, and even an anti-Demon supereffective bonus from Demonic Nature of Oni (Protect). She also has a one-turn Star Gather Rate Up from Break Rod as well as a Sure-Hit from her NP, providing some extent of flexibility in terms of damage dealing. Rounding up her kit are more defensive tools in the form of Heartbreak’s NP Seal and 3-turn Critical Chance Down, the latter of which is powerful enough to prevent most enemies from ever landing a critical hit.

However, Shuten’s Buster NP means that her NP gain will feel comparatively slow compared to other Casters, especially as she has no other way to amp said gain. In actuality, her three Arts deck still gives her a decent amount of NP gain, though she won’t be spamming her NP any time soon. Shuten’s second major weakness is her lack of hard defensive skills, which makes her susceptible to NPs (although Heart Ripper’s Critical Chance Down largely protects her from critical hits while it’s up).

With relatively minor shortcomings and a valuable niche in the form of a Buster oriented Caster damage-dealer, Shuten is definitely an important asset especially for Masters who lack more expensive options such as Xuanzang Sanzang and Illyasviel von Einzbern.

Strengths

High Burst Damage

With various damage buffs at her disposal, high base NP damage as well as critical capabilities, Shuten’s burst damage potential is very notable, competing even with her higher-rarity rivals with the help of her criticals. That said, Caster damage is not particularly impressive overall, and while Shuten’s buffed NP deals a lot of damage, her damage falls off quite a bit outside of those turns.

Decent Support

Aside from raw damage, Shuten provides both offensive and defensive support through her skills. The former comes from the Charisma-like ATK Up from her third skill. Defensively, her first skill’s NP Seal is excellent at delaying enemy NPs, particularly as it can be used effectively in the very first turn (unlike NP Drain effects). The Critical Chance Down it applies is also very powerful, essentially locking the target’s criticals with 50% uptime at max level. 

Anti-Demon Supereffective

Shuten’s anti-Demon buff lasts for 3 turns, and while it is still very situational overall, against the right enemies it gives her a lot of sustained damage on top of the aforementioned high burst damage. Notably, this makes her very effective against her original Assassin self.

Weaknesses

Mediocre NP Gain

Despite having a 3-Arts deck, Shuten Douji’s NP gain is comparatively slow compared to most other Casters due to her lack of NP refund and any sort of multiple-turn NP Gain Up or NP Charge skill. Still, she can get a considerable amount of NP during her burst turns (with the help of criticals on her buffed Arts cards), though she shouldn’t be expected to spam her NP any time soon.

Rather Fragile

While Shuten’s first skill provides an extent of protection against critical hits and NPs, it only affects a single enemy, which means that she is left vulnerable when facing multiple enemies. In these situations, her lack of defensive skills become an issue, and so it is advisable to bring along supports with access to party-wide defensive tools.

Thanks to her NP5 access, Shuten works well even at lower skill levels, as few enemies are capable of withstanding her burst damage. Against more powerful bosses, however, it is recommended to have her second and third skills at higher levels to increase their effectiveness and uptime. Her first skill can generally be left at level 4, unless the reduced cooldown at higher levels is desired.

  • As Shuten’s defensive support skill, Heartbreak A+ is quite powerful in single boss scenarios, especially against more critical-oriented ones. However, the only part of the skill that scales with level is its Critical Chance Down, which is already effective even at base. While the NP Seal benefits considerably from the cooldown reductions at level 6 and 10, the difference only comes into play in rare situations, making this skill more of a resource sink. As such, it should be leveled last. 
  • Break Rod B is Shuten’s primary damage buff; not only does it provide performance bonuses to her Buster and Arts cards, it also significantly boosts her Star Gather Rate, allowing her to perform powerful critical Brave chains. However, the Performance Ups are weaker compared to other similar skills, and the buffs’ 1-turn durations coupled with the skill’s longer cooldown make it less impactful in practice. It’s recommended to level this skill second, though it can contend for first place when Shuten is used with a critical-oriented comp.
  • Demonic Nature of Oni (Protect) A is essentially a Charisma skill which also happens to pack an anti-Demon supereffective buff as the cherry on top. While less flashy compared to Shuten’s second skill, its party-wide effect, 3-turn duration and high uptime make it her most beneficial skill to level first most of the time.

Craft Essence Recommendation

Shuten works well with Starting NP Gauge CEs or hybrid variants thereof. In terms of offensive effects, NP Damage Up and Attack Up are her preferred ones, followed by Buster Performance Up and to an extent even Arts Performance Up (provided it’s bundled with another offensive effect). NP Gain Up is also beneficial for her, but shouldn’t be actively sought after.

  • Kaleidoscope / The Imaginary Element: These CEs are excellent for boss stages, allowing Shuten a very early NP with minimal aid from supports. They also let Shuten perform her second NP much earlier, which indirectly translates to even more additional damage and gives her more damage dealing flexibility.
  • Aerial Drive / Holy Night Supper / Golden Sumo: Boulder Tournament / Dive to Blue / Battle Olympia / First Sunrise / Partake with the King: These options perform well with NP Charge supports, letting Shuten perform a very early NP while still giving her considerable offensive benefits.
  • The Black Grail / Heaven’s Feel: NP Damage Up CEs are Shuten’s primary options when it comes to burst damage, giving her by far the largest damage increase out of all CE types. However, this in turn means that using them may be overkill against lower-health enemies.
  • Hero Elly’s Adventure / Demon King of the Sixth Heaven / Limited/Zero Over / Royal Icing / Kaleid Ruby / Kaleid Sapphire: Less extreme compared to the above category, these CEs combine multiple offensive effects, though lacking Starting NP, they are best used either in very well-supported teams or when no other option is available.

Character Info

It's not really clear whether THAT actually existed in the Heian period. Perhaps it was only a rumor that spread among oni living in the shadows of the modern world. Whatever the case, she won't shut up about it...the legend of the Magifender oni.

The heroes who save the world of man become Heroic Spirits, while those who save the world of oni become Magifenders. Preach to oni, denounce oni, and kill oni... This is the way of the oni Magifender, and the only way to truly save all oni.

"Well, it's a nice story, so just go along with it, okay?"

Profile 1

Height/Weight: 145cm, 46kg
Origin: Otogizoushi, etc.?
Region: Japan
Alignment: Chaotic-Evil
Gender: Female
Shuten-Douji with a different Spirit Origin. This really isn't meant to be a disguise, but somehow very few people actually realize it's her.

Profile 2

Initially, she intended this to be a costume or disguise, but ever since she caught that little beast Haku in the Chitose region, it seems her entire Spirit Origin has (temporarily) changed. She's even adopted more heroic mannerisms, but make no mistake, she is merely playing the part of someone who saves oni by killing other oni.

Profile 3

Heartbreak: A+
Oni Magifender, Heart-Crushing Killer.
With her class changed, her Noble Phantasm meant to rip her victim's bones out, "Bone Collector (One Hundred Furiously Blossoming Flowers - Wo Ai Ni), has become a skill. It is a terrifying skill in which she thrusts her hand into her target's chest if they fail a resistance save, and then mercilessly crushes the heart and other vital organs.

It's a Magifender Girl ability that was bestowed upon her to let her control oni... At least that's supposed to be the official line. When a dubious member of Chaldea's staff pointed out that any living thing would shut right up when someone crushes its heart, Shuten-Douji just giggled and said not a word.

Profile 4

Break Rod: B
Oni Magifender, Killer Bludgeoning Stick.
"Those princesses in that 'tee-vee' box all swing those stick things around. They're all glowy and stuff. I want one."

"Leave it to me."

...This is apparently the sort of stuff Shuten and her familiar, Haku, talked about.

Profile 5

[Magifender Girl, Kuzuryu Massacre]
Rank: C++
NP Type: Anti-Personnel
Range: 0 - 10
Maximum Targets: 1

A vicious pummeling attack carried out by relying on her tough physique and the natural strength that comes with being with an oni, all combined with her innate flexibility and cruelty. She begins with rapid punches and kicks that happen so quickly she might be thought to be teleporting around. While she may not have a long reach, evading her is all but impossible. Even the protection afforded by Divinity is sure to be useless against such a savage attack. Her target is all but certain to die on the spot.

After the flurry of blows ceases, she may then launch the same poisonous alcohol-filled gourd from her Noble Phantasm, "Multicolored Poison - Shinpen Kidoku." According to Shuten, she just does that for fun, though, so this particular Noble Phantasm is more a combination of furious blows.

Profile 6

Unlock after clearing The Land of Mystique, Oniland! and reach Bond Level 5

Inside, she is no different from her usual self, but...she consciously tries not to break character from the Magifender Girl image that Ibaraki clings to...at least as much as possible...

It's probably more accurate to say that she continues to play along because she feels like she's performing a sacred Shinto dance, Kagura, and she's enjoying herself. It seems like she plans to remain in this form until it bores her.

Oh, also her familiar, Haku, was in actuality an evil dragon that appeared in The Kamuy's Gold... The Haku we see now though is one that Shuten molded after the image of the original with her own magical energy. She says he doesn't talk, but there may or may not be reports of Haku talking to himself when she's not around.

Well, well, thank you very much.
Ascension 1 I guess I'm getting used to this new Spirit Origin. It feels nice.
Thank you, Master.
Ascension 2 Ugh, this is no good. I tried to alter my Spirit Origin, but my appearance didn't change.
Master, were you disappointed?
...Sorry 'bout that.
Ascension 3 Oh right...I should say something that fits the situation better, shouldn't I? How's this?
Magic leveled up!
Yep, that'll do.
Ascension 4 Fufu. Fufufu.
I was keeping it a secret, but it looks like my tastes changed when my Spirit Origin did.
I learned that sweet things pair well with alcohol.
They melt right on your tongue and then...fufu...almost like human...
Care for a bite, too, Master?
Bond Level 1 My outfit? I'm a Magifender Girl. What of it? Sorry if you don't like it.
Hm? What? Fufu... Curious how this is all staying on?
Bond Level 2 You do know what this is, right?
Uh-huh. When Ibaraki was watching this "tee-vee" thing, she asked me whether oni could be something like whatever was on this show she was watching.
So I told her that it wasn't impossible...
A harmless lie? I didn't mean for it to be. Fufu.
Bond Level 3 Humans are supposed to protect the world of man. You know, policing, justice, and warriors of that sort.
So what about in the world of oni? Well, never mind the policing and justice stuff, but there are forces that work for something kind of similar.
Ah, I don't remember their names, though.
Bond Level 4 What is going on with the modern world?
I don't quite get it...
It doesn't seem like oni are completely gone, but I suppose if there's a tiny handful of oni still around, the ones who watch over them would still be around too.
Which means...
Well, that's pretty much what my Spirit Origin has become, isn't it? Don't you think? Fufu...
Bond Level 5 Master, I did some research.
These, um, heroines, have something like a shikigami putting them to work, right?
What? I have something like a familiar with me, you say?
Listen to you. Haku here is just a shell. It's like a doll that was created using my magical energy. It's nothing like a familiar.
So, Master... Why don't you be my familiar for a while?
Oh don't worry, I won't make it hurt...much.
Conversation 1 Are you just going to sit around here?
I don’t like being bored, you know.
Conversation 2 Sorry to burst your bubble, but a Magifender Girl does not belong to anyone.
Oh, but wouldn't it be better if YOU wore a collar around your neck?
Conversation 3 Get this: Haku disobeys me, even though he's a mere imitation. Ibaraki insists that having a familiar is a must, so I can't just strangle him...
What do you think I should do?
Conversation 4 (Ibaraki-Douji) It's me. That's right, the Magifender Girl...
Oh, Ibaraki? Come on, I keep saying it's me. Yes, me. Shuten-Douji.
What's that?
You think we look alike, but I'm still not Shuten? Are you still on about that?
(Sigh) Whatever should I do about this?
Conversation 5 Okay, the Magifender Girl is here now.
Where are the oni who stopped acting like oni to live like humans?
There's no use hiding. I can see you all!
Conversation 6 (Sakata Kintoki (Rider), Sakata Kintoki) Tell me, boy, what do you think of my top?
Why are you averting your eyes? Hm? What do you mean, "Another new scantily-clad Servant"?
Come on, it's me. Did you forget?
Huh? Why are you saying, "Nice to meet ya"?
(Sigh) Come on, just take off those sunglasses. Don't argue. Just do it. Hurry up.
Conversation 7 (Mochizuki Chiyome) Hmmm?
Why, this is a rare meeting, descendant of Kouga Saburou. Aren't you going to flee in fear today? Oh, I see. I look a lot like Shuten-Douji, but you're relieved to see that I'm not? I...see...
I hadn't meant to disguise myself so well...
Conversation 8 (Minamoto-no-Raikou (Lancer), Minamoto-no-Raikou) Talk about strange coincidences.
That cow-woman rants about things like decency and being a prefect, but a Magifender Girl also protects decency.
...Well, oni decency, anyway.
Now, how will this meeting go...
Oh. She just walked right by. Maybe she doesn't realize I'm Shuten-Douji...?
Conversation 9 (Ibaraki-Douji (Lancer)) Oooh.
Look at you, all dressed up. You look good, Ibaraki. I'm happy for you.
I think we could form some sort of duo now.
That's right...the two of us.
Fufu. Come now, don't go running in circles, all excited like that. Careful not to trip, okay?
Likes I like this outfit.
My normal self doesn't like covering up quite so much, but...
Fufu. This isn't so bad once in a while.
Dislikes Oni have their reasons for being how they are, and will never accept anything that goes against them. Oni will always be oni. Never human. They will never live like humans, love like humans, and they will never die like humans.
Don't you agree?
That may not quite be true of me since, for now...fufu...I am a Magifender Girl.
About the Holy Grail Hm, let's see.
Next time, I might want to paint that shiny gold goblet with lacquer and make it mine.
During an Event An event wouldn't be an event without one or two of those "hero show" things.
So let's head out, Master.
Birthday It would be customary to share a drink on an auspicious day like this...but as a Magifender Girl, I need to think outside the box...
How about if I put on one of those "hero show" things? You and I together will be the Magifender twins. What do you think?
Summon Okay, allow me to reintroduce myself.
I am Caster, Shuten-Douji.
Well, me being a Caster doesn't really change anything.
Hm, what's that?
Until I take all this off, I'm going to remain an innocent Magifender Girl.
Limited Time Contract Um...let's see.
I'm the oni's...what did I say I was again?
Anyway, it's something to do with magifending. That's why I'm a Magifender Girl right now.
I'm an oni who protects other oni, so I can't be an ally to humans.
Fufu. Forgive me for that, okay?
The Land of Mystique, Oniland! The Great Oni and the Kamuy's Gold 1 Oh my, there are so many.
Master, you are so diligent. I'm impressed.
...Okay, see you.
Fufufu.
The Land of Mystique, Oniland! The Great Oni and the Kamuy's Gold 2 Okay, good work.
Did you get anything good?
Or did you...just come by to see little old me?
The Land of Mystique, Oniland! The Great Oni and the Kamuy's Gold 3 I'm getting good at running the shop.
Don't you agree?
The Land of Mystique, Oniland! The Great Oni and the Kamuy's Gold 4 Yes, yes, this one, right?
I see that you like this sort of thing, Master.
But I'll probably forget all of it...
Fufu. Forgive me for that.
The Land of Mystique, Oniland! The Great Oni and the Kamuy's Gold 5 Oh, that much?
You're so greedy.
I like it.
Life's short. You should be greedy sometimes.
