The Classic Dragon build. Kana can run it well too. Kana can be seen as a hybrid between Nowi and his mother, Corrin(F) with more even defensive stats, good speed, but attack between the two. While access to boon/bane is usually extremely problematic for free units, Kana has a good enough spread to be fairly viable without them.

Icon Skill Weapon.png Lightning Breath+ is the weapon of choice, with the +Spd refinement or +Def refinement, depending on whether you want to try to focus on dodging doubles or just increase bulk. This lets Kana counterattack from any range, allowing him to fight off bows, which is among the more common threats that specifically needs to be countered.

Icon Skill Assist.png Reposition is a standard, powerful movement tool that allows tanks to move units behind them, and then acting as a wall for them on the enemy phase, or just generally moving units around.

Icon Skill Special.png Bonfire is the special used. Kana has solid defense, and the 3, turned into 4 cooldown special works especially well, as Kana is unlikely to get doubled and thus wastes no efficiency in firing off Bonfire

Alternately, Aether can be quite strong, as Kana has fairly good attack to be able to dispatch most units oin one combat, thus having Aether up to help take out a second enemy while healing him up to a good amount of HP.

Steady Breath.png Steady Breath defines the build, allowing Kana to quickly gain special charge when baiting the enemy in. This means that he wants specials with even amounts of cooldown (or odd amount normally, as Icon Skill Weapon.png Lightning Breath+ brings it up by 1) as to not lose efficiency.

Alternately, Warding Breath.png Warding Breath is also a strong choice, increasing his res bulk instead.

Quick Riposte 3.png Quick Riposte 3 is the second skill that defines this build, Kana, who has fairly good speed but not overwhelming amounts, to always double on return.

Alternatey, one can run other B skills such as Guard 3 or a breaker to help stop Bold Fighter nonsense or give him a better player phase with breaker.

Fortify Dragons.png Fortify Dragons is the skill Kana naturally comes with and is quite powerful, but other options include Panic Ploy 3, while Kana's HP isn't the highest it's enough to ploy blade mages. Alternately he can run any Hone/Spur/Drive to good effect, as well as smokes.

Close Def 3 is a strong choice for S skill, bolstering Kana's melee matchups. Alternately Distant Def 3.png Distant Def 3 is also strong if you're looking to make him your archer counter.

If you run Guard 3 or a breaker as Kana's B slot, you will want Quick Riposte 3 to be your seal, allowing him to guarantee make a counter attack.

This build aims to optimize use of Kana's native skills to make a strong enemy phase set or, with a little more investment, a viable mixed phase set.

Icon Skill Weapon.png Water Breath+ is Kana's native weapon and it has a pretty good niche. Because it is essential a Bracing Stance, it majorly increases Kana's survivability. In addition, having no cooldown penalty lets Kana run tow charge specials. Either a +Def refine or +Spd define would be best, whether or not you want to help bolster his player phase with speed or focus a bit more on enemy phase bulk with defense

Icon Skill Assist.png Reposition is a standard, powerful movement tool that allows tanks to move units behind them, and then acting as a wall for them on the enemy phase, or just generally moving units around.

Moonbow is the best special for Kana. Because there is no cooldown penalty for Icon Skill Weapon.png Water Breath+ you can easily activate Moonbow every fight, allowing him to blow away squishier targets.

Fury 3 is quite good on Kana going player phase builds, as it increases all of him stats to let him make the speed thresholds necessary to acquire doubles, or even avoid getting hit by them.

Alternately, Kana's native Brazen Def Res 3.png Brazen Def/Res 3 is also fairly viable, though it makes his first combat fairly poor, which can be problematic.

Quick Riposte 2.png Quick Riposte 2 is adequate for Kana to be battle ready. Kana, who has fairly good speed but not overwhelming amounts, to always double on return.

Alternately, one can run other B skills such as Guard 3 or a breaker to help stop Bold Fighter nonsense or give him a better player phase with breaker.

Fortify Dragons.png Fortify Dragons is the skill Kana naturally comes with and is quite powerful with other dargons. Alternately he can run any Hone/Spur/Drive to good effect, depending on what you want for your team.

Kana's seal choice really expands depending on which path you chose. If you run the more defensive set Close Def 3 is probably best. If you want to run a mixed phase Kana, then Speed Plus 3.png Speed +3 allows Kana to get to the required level to double the vast majority of enemies.

Lastly, if you're not running Quick Riposte 2.png Quick Riposte 2 as a B skill, Quick Riposte 3 is the best seal to run, as not having a source of the skill greatly weakens his enemy phase capabilities.

Best Boi's Beastly Tanking Skillz
Click to show/hide build description 
Kana: Dragon Spawn is like a neutral Nowi with less HP and ATK, but more SPD, DEF, and RES. Thus, Kana: Dragon Spawn is more suited to tanking hits on the enemy phase rather then attacking on the player phase.

Icon Skill Weapon.png Lightning Breath+ is a no-brainer for dragon tanks, though if it isn't available, Icon Skill Weapon.png Water Breath+ is a good budget breath in a pinch.

Steady Breath.png Steady Breath allows him to get 35 DEF in combat without buffs, allowing him to have a 75 damage soak on full HP, letting him survive multiple units that would OHKO him. Warding Breath.png Warding Breath is the budget option if you lack the former.

Icon Skill Special.png Bonfire is used to give him destructive firepower on the enemy phase, though if you are using Warding Breath.png Warding Breath, Icon Skill Special.png Iceberg is the way to go.

Quick Riposte 3.png Quick Riposte 3 is used as the B skill mainly to make room for an S seal, though you can always replace this with Vantage 3.png Vantage 3 if you are using the S seal for Quick Riposte 3.png Quick Riposte 3 to take advantage of Hector's tried and true combo.

Threaten Atk 3.png Threaten Atk 3 allows Kana to take magical hits easier, although Fortify Dragons.png Fortify Dragons can be useful on a Dragon Emblem team.

Distant Def 3.png Distant Def 3 is the reason Kana wants an open S slot, allowing him to tank much more powerful units. Again, if Vantage 3.png Vantage 3 is in use, replace it with Quick Riposte 3.png Quick Riposte 3.
