:hugs: Family Bonus

Ninja Heroes have a family bonus for unique heroes of the same family.

Ninja Family
Bonus for 2 / 3 Heroes:

  • 5% / 10% chance to dodge normal attacks and Special Skills
  • 5% / 10% chance to counterattack with 60% / 90% of the damage received

The two effects have individual sequential processing. So one may not trigger while the other might.

:test_tube: Changes from Beta

There appear to be no changes to Kinsaishi from last-seen Beta stats, skill, and design.

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these three threads for more information and context on summoning odds:

If you’ve read them a million times before, you may consider reading them again before deciding on your budget for summoning. A little time spent deciding on how much money you want to risk on summoning goes a long way to avoiding disappointment, frustration, and regret later. :slight_smile:

A 3* ninja … very nice :slightly_smiling_face: perhaps this could be expanded upon in the future

I wonder if this hero is better than poppy? 220% at lv3 but guaranteed hits

Very low health, like Agnes. Usually doesn’t end well.


He is pretty awesome. Helped me go 5 for 5 today in the tournament.

Did a 1000 tower pull and a single 10-pull and besides s1 food I got him 3 times.

Looks decent.

I think his artwork are comparable to 5* artwork :slightly_smiling_face:.


He is awesome. Guaranted 450% damage for 5 tiles. No one else can do it.

His family bonus is kinda useless being the only 3* ninja around

Not really. Think outside a box a bit. Sapphire is good, Ametrine is good, but Shale sucks. So take Kinsaishi and put him with them instead of Shale. Increased family bonus should keep him alive longer and limit breaking him makes him last longer as well. Plus as a last generation hero he has highest stats of all 3* so far.


Only use I could find for him are 3* tourneys or challenge events/alliance quest. In that context, I can’t pair him with any ninjas

Me too in fact, so for me it would be useless as well. Though recently in CE I used Buster with 5* Fireys to greater than great effect (relatively effortless top 1k, Gargoyle event IIRC). Also some people with limited rosters may need to use 3* heroes in 4* tourney and for them it’s really useful.

I just did 18 pulls and got 5x Kinsaishi. I have 1 so now i have 6. Realistically how many is worth keeping? 5 for a full mono yellow team for events amd raids?

Just got him. I remember him being real annoying to face in the tower, so I think he’ll be good? If anyone’s still using him, I’d be happy to hear your thoughts. Whatever else he’s got going on, his artwork’s kinda badass.

Very useful in events and 3* tourneys. He is LB1 and emblemed. I have 2 of them and use them according to the fight situation. I prefer to use the charge 3 special as it can deal some finishing blows.

just pulled - looks like he will be a fun one to use!

Is Maeve ninja? 3* to pair with

Maeve is from the slayer family not ninja.
