As someone with a +20 Killhare and truly does enjoy using her, I am curious why everyone is so gung ho over her and not Guardian Kong? It seems like Kong rarely ever gets talked about or seen in competitive teams while Killhare is almost always featured.
Killhare +20 does 300% damage to all with a 845 attack stat at average speed. That is 2,535 base damage at average speed with an undispellable defense down ailment for the entire team except her.
Kong +20 does 250% damage to all with a 854 attack stat at average speed. That’s 2,135 base damage. Though Kong also gives your entire team near immunity to blue tiles with a huge blue defense up AND he cleanses the entire team AND he doesn’t have the hinderance of an undispellable defense down for your team.
The difference in damage is 400 points in total. Spread among all the enemies, that is telling us that all Killhare does is give about 80 points of extra damage to each enemy more than Kong does (with updated stats it’s 57.5)
Is 57.5 points of extra damage to each enemy an equal trade off to:
- +94% defense against blue for 4 turns to all allies
- an entire team cleanse
- not hindering your entire team with a permanent defense down?
As someone who does love their Killhare, I feel like I would rather have a Kong over her any day. Why is it that Killhare gets all the love and Kong is barely ever talked about?
They both have the same speed, Kong has a higher attack stat, does not have a negative ability, gives a huge blue defense up, CLEANSES, and still has a powerful hit. What gives?!
EDIT: apparently Kong at +20 can get to 899, not 854. You can see the updated math in another comment. It’s only about a 57.5 damage boost to each enemy now, not 80.
