Threaten Atk 3

Charlotte is a different kind of glass cannon. Usually the glass cannons are powerful speedy ranged units like Nino, Cordelia: Perfect Bride, Delthea, etc. But Charlotte is melee glass cannon. With one of the highest Atk stats in the game, as well as great Spd, she can be a powerful red unit-checker, and if you build her with Lancebreaker or Blue Tomebreaker, she can be a blue units-checker. Her main problem is her really bad resistance and mediocre defense. This makes it difficult to get in and wreck things. In the physical side she can tank some hits, but she is not a frontal line unit. Be aware of mages, lancebreaker units and green units if you are planning using her.

With Inheritance, she can gain access to skills like Life and Death 3, making her role as Glass Cannon more apparent. Lowering her already low Def and Res and boosting her already high Atk and Spd, she becomes something like a Blue version of Hana, being extremely frail but hitting like a truck. She can also gain a Special like Moonbow or Luna to hit even harder. Regardless of how you build her, she can be a very effective blue unit under the proper circumstances. Enemies and allies alike will fear the oversized Kitchen Spoon!


Pros Cons

+ Rivals Hector for 3rd highest base ATK in the game

+ Unique weapon that boosts ally DEF and RES after initiating combat

- Paper defenses make her susceptible to high amounts damage

- Limited time hero that cannot be merged after banner ends

Checks & Counters

  • Generally speaking, her bad defenses make it easy to beat her, but her high attack make outright ORKOing her a hassle. Mages and Bow users are generally your best bets.
  • Hector, Nino, and practically any green units who might be able to double her will really hurt Charlotte. Surprisingly, she can take hits from some Julias (depending on IVs and skill sets).

Team Options

  • Charlotte works really well with powerful red units able to tank hits from green mages (her biggest threat) and preferably kill them on counter like Ryoma, Xander, or Ike.
