It should be noted up front that Female Robin is a niche unit in the current meta- outclassed by nearly every other Green Tome user in the game; this being said, however, she is not completely unusable. Thanks to the almighty power of the Skill Inheritance button, Robin gains the ability to pull off a TARaven build; and, thanks to her accessibility as a Grand Hero Battle unit, is fairly easy to obtain.

As previously mentioned, Robin runs Gronnraven+ on this build as it allows her to amplify her mediocre attack stat to do decent damage to Blue and Colorless units after Triangle Adept is factored in. As for her special, Robin can run either Bonfire, which deals 15 bonus damage on activation, or her base Ignis, which deals 23- though Bonfire is preferred due to its lower cooldown count. For her assist, Robin uses Reposition as it is one of the strongest assists in the game.

Robin's B skill is rather situational and dependant on what the player needs her to hard counter for their team:

Blue Tomebreaker allows Robin to tank hits from, and subsequently deal with, relevant Blue Mages- in particular Reinhardt- and to a lesser extent the odd Linde or Delthea.

Bowbreaker, on the other hand, allows her to double both Brave Lyn and Bridal Cordelia and beat them in one round of combat- this alone making it worth consideration.

Robin's C skill and Sacred Seal are fairly open to player preference, and again dependent on their team, though some base recommendations for C skills include Hone Attack or Speed. As for seals, Speed Plus 1.png Speed +1 is a possibility as it brings her up to 30, raising her threshold of being doubled from 34 to 35. Distant Def 1.png Distant Def 1 might also seem like an attractive option as it slightly mitigates damage Robin will take from baiting a blue mage or bow unit on Enemy Phase, but again it is rather flexible.

Cavalry Check
Stats: Neutral

This build makes F!Robin a great Blue Cav check, and this build is made to deal with popular blue Cavs like Reinhardt, Olwen, and Camus. Her weapon should be her default Gronnwolf, as it will help deal with those pesky Calvary units. Her Assist should either be Swap or Reposition, as it helps to save allies. Her special should be her default Ignis, or Bonfire for less cooldown. Ignis helps her out more IMO, as she doesn't have high Atk to begin with, but Bonfire is a solid option too. Her A slot is up to who you want to counter. If you want to counter all blue Cav Mages, go with T.A. 3, as it helps her survive against even the strongest of Reinhardts with Res +1 Sacred Seal. If you want her to be a solid Physical Blue Cav Check, go with CC. Sure, you won't survive against too many Reins now, but you can now take on units like Camus by baiting. This is a more Niche option, but it works! Her B slot should be Lancebreaker or Axebreaker. You don't really need B!Tomebreaker as she already kills Cav Blue tomes w/o this skill. Green Tomebreaker helps get K.Os on Cecilias, while Axebreaker is to take out Titania if she survives a hit from Gronnwolf. C slot is Flexible as always. Her seal is also Flexible, but I recommend Atk+1 for the best matchups. And that's it ~Justthebo50

Supportive Tactician

Note: This is listed as 'High Investment' but all skills can be inherited from 4★ units.

Very much a budget build. With her mostly middling offensive stats, Robin's best role is that of a supporter who buffs her teammates into nukes. Assuming conditions are right, this build will result in a total stacking of Atk+7/Spd+7/Def+4/Res+4 in combat for any ally within two spaces of her. The caveat to this is that it must be a mixed team; the boost from Tactical Gale's refine only applies when there are no more than two of any move type on the team. It's essentially a +4 Tactic to all stats.

As an Assist, Draw Back can help her drag her allies out of danger without leaving herself in the line of fire; while Reposition also moves allies, it could leave her open to a melee attack.

When Robin does enter combat herself, Triangle Adept 3 gives her an extra and much-needed boost when she goes up against blue and colourless foes. Quick Riposte 2 will help mitigate her unimpressive speed when on the defense; obviously Quick Riposte 3 is the overall better option, but it does require the sacrifice of a 5★ Hero (though not necessarily a 5★ exclusive Hero).

Her native Ignis will work fine as a Special, and some may prefer the increased damage output given her lower base Atk, but Bonfire fires off quicker.
