Click to show/hide build description 
This S!Xander build is designed to OHKO most melee physical unit he meets regardless of colour.

Through his absolute sheer bulk and one turn Empowered Icon Skill Special.png Ignis, he has enough HP and defense to burst down a melee physical unit per turn on consecutive turns once Wrath comes online.

The build requires +Atk IVs to maximise his base damage on which his Ignis procs build upon, although +Def is also passable. The build takes -Spd IVs because S!Xander only requires one punch to end every fight, therefore speed is completely negligible, -Res is acceptable but does hurt some of his dragon matchups but not by a meaningful amount.

Icon Class Green Axe.png Slaying Axe+ is used to reduce CD on Icon Skill Special.png Ignis, which when combined with Wrath 3.png Wrath 3/Quickened Pulse.png Quickened Pulse, reduces Icon Skill Special.png Ignis CD down to 2 and perfectly in range for Steady Breath.png Steady Breath/Warding Breath.png Warding Breath to boost every turn. Def Refine is preferred to increase bulk and damage of Icon Skill Special.png Ignis. Quick Riposte 3.png Quick Riposte 3 can be an acceptable alternative at the cost of certain difficult armor matchups as well as completely removing the build's ability to provide fully charged Ignis' off a single hit on consecutive turns.

Panic Ploy 3.png Panic Ploy 3 can be chosen to make use of S!Xander's above average HP but can also be subbed out for other C Slot skills like Tactics or Infantry Pulse 3.png Infantry Pulse 3 which is part of his base kit.
