Pros
  • Disgustingly flexible, with Call of R'lyeh offering TWO Intimidating Stance turn removals if he goes second, reducing enemy MP if he goes first along with chip damage, gives him Null Mortal, inflicts Gloom on the opponent at the start of their every turn, and offers a 30% damage boost to enemies afflicted by Gloom
  • As if that weren't enough MP drain, Lost Sanity accuractely describes the sanity of the devs at this point, being Megidolaon, an improved Mahamarin Karinon and Mahashibabooon, and a 2 MP removal all in one. Did I mention that instead of 8 mp cost like Megidolaon, it costs 5 mp at max level?
  • In theme with his kit, Suk Flexi offers different effects depending on whether or not he goes first, furthering his role as a midrange monster, and helping in the current meta where evasion can be king.
  • Panels increase his tankiness and almighty damage, while also offering additional buff control and Null Bind, so his chain effect to apply Gloom will always activate.
  • Has a great stat spread, with high Magic, Luck, Vitality, and middling Agi, which suits him perfectly as his kit doesn't care if he goes first or second.
  • Has innate Almighty Survivor for additional survivability and damage, because at this point what else does he need?
  • Oh, that's right, to match Nyarlathotep, he has four drain effects, giving him incredible anti-pierce capacity.
Cons
  • If he goes first, he won't have Gloom on the opponents without Nyarlathotep on your first turn, which is worth considering.
  • Suk Flexi is a skill name so terrible it gives Great Idea or the Slowda skills a run for their money.
  • He does suffer slightly from being a bit of an all rounder, in that he's too fast for a dedicated slow team, while not offering enough to run in a dedicated fast team, as even his mp drain in that case probably won't be enough to keep a T1 team alive if they fail to sweep.
  • Not particularly special in PvE where enemies have unlimited MP, and Charm and Bind are virtually impossible to land on high level enemies.

Build(s)

Call of Cthulhu
ArchPurple.png Transferred Skills Notes:

An insanely strong demon. Gloom aids dodge tanks greatly especially when paired with a dodge tank Demiurge, who has Drain Pierce for Cthulhu's 4 elemental drains. This is a generic build to fulfill the role of a damage dealer + double IS + Gloomer. Teal can be ran to not let VishnuA to gain extra turns, if not, run a demon that Drains/Repels Light with Demiurge.

Cosmic Horror
ArchYellow.png Transferred Skills Notes:

A dodge build variant. Suk Flexi + any Lunar Skill will ensure neutral EV/AC buffs on both sides at minimum. You can run Lunar Downfall or Auto-Sukuka/Sukunda to ensure EV/AC buffs are in your favor. Pair with another dodge build demon to really punish Physical teams. Teal can be ran instead to not get punished by VishnuA, but make sure you have other forms of EV/AC buff control.
