Pros
  • Demons die when they are killed by Otherworldly Force, a strong force sweeping skill reminiscient of Echidna's pseudo-endure breaking revive sealing aoe. With 218 magic and innate Force Survivor and Butcher, this skill hits hard.
  • Additionally gains 35% force damage through panels, only further increasing sweeping potential.
  • Applies the unique ailment Gloom, which cannot be blocked or cleansed. The only way to remove it is death.
  • Gloom offers a huge variety of effects, debuffing the opponent's hit rate, evasion rate, crit rate, ailment infliction, and ailment resistance.
  • In addition, while Nyarly is alive, all enemies will take 25% additional damage from magic and deal 25% less magic damage, as long as they are affected by Gloom
  • With an absurd four repels, he combos well with Demiurge or Atavaka and he also happens to be a Vile demon, helping him fit with Pales. This is of particular note with him countering Koga Saburo well, as force repel is rare.
  • Offers buff control in P2 when Gloom is applied, helping him contribute even more to the team.
  • He is of special note in democalypse prelim rounds, where he adds a 25% damage boost to the entire team.
Cons
  • While he fits great into Vile teams in theory, his 159 agi will increase the speed of those teams by a good amount, causing you to potentially be outslowed.
  • Additionally is slow for a fast team, meaning he's a bit awkward to slot into teams.
  • Has no way to reapply Gloom, so if a unit dies and is revived, the benefits are lost.
  • Otherworldly Force isn't a true endure breaker, so it won't always be able to punch through enemies, especially if they have multiple endures.
  • Isn't the tankiest demon so he will struggle to survive in slower teams, and if he dies, the magic damage amp on Gloom is lost.

ArchPurple.png Transferred Skills Notes:

An insanely strong Force sweeper that also revive seals. Concentrate with Gloom allows him to blast away enemy teams with Otherwordly Storm. He can also be used in slow/midrange teams with a dodgy Maria to abuse Gloom and potentially punish and beat Physical-based teams.
