Pros
  • He is essentially an entire Ailment Team neatly packaged into one demon. Not only does Bohemian Bemusing Rhapsody remove Barriers, it also has a high chance of inflicting Charm and Curse, while only costing 5 MP to cast.
  • Deadly Melody autocasts two random buffs and debuffs every time ailments land, allowing you to repeatedly swing buffs in your favor especially when paired with other ailment demons like Lilith A and Angra Mainyu. This is very powerful with Panel 2 unlocked, as it gives your teammtes increased damage against Cursed and Charmed units.
  • Panel 3 reduces ailment cure rate by 25%. This is incredibly strong as it ensures Bind and Charm will always last a turn (as long as they don't have increased recovery).
  • Due to how packed his kit is, he can easily be splashed into fast teams looking for some Ailment control, or in Defense teams to catch players randoming without sufficient Ailment protection.
  • Panels 1 and 3 give him increased Battle Speed, allowing him to act as a Speedster.
  • Innate Epitome of Madness and Insanity in Purple, combined with Bemusing Rhapsody's high ailment base chance means he is almost guaranteed to land his ailments, allowing you to forego ailment infliction for other brand stats like Speed instead.
Cons
  • Panels are mandatory on him, without them he is a rather mediocre ailment unit.
  • Stiff competition from Motoko Kusanagi who is also pretty much a standalone (heh) ailment package on her own. In a vacuum, Bind and Mute are arguably more useful ailments, and Motoko has the advantage of being fully useable without Panels.
  • Hard-countered by Ailment immunity, most notably Daisoujou, Panelled Clotho and Panel 2 Beelzebub☆.
Notes
  • While Bind and Mute might be more powerful on their own, Charm and Curse have more abuseable combos, most notably Lilith A, Alice A and to a lesser extent Panel 3 OG Lilith.
  • He forms a nice spooky band with Trumpeter on Trumpets, Daisoujou on Vocals and Black Rider on Cymbals. For a less spooky variant, Mermaid is supposedly great for vocals too, and Sarasvati rocks a mean Veena.
