How to Counter Edit

Katsumi is an aggressive Ninja who seeks to keep multiple enemies occupied while his team secure the mission.

Attachments Edit

Cat Like Agility Edit

While Katsumi can Jump Up each turn, it looses him Indomitable. Gaining Steady removes this issue completely and prevents him ever being prone in the first place.

Alternative/s Edit

Pros Edit

  • MS of 4
  • Ninja Package (Armor (1), Assassin, Camouflage (2), Light Footed)
  • Bravery and Tireless
  • Gains Indomitable (1) or Jump Up at the start of each turn
  • Ranged Attack causes target to fall prone

Cons Edit

  • Ranged Attack with Kusari does not cause a Damage Roll
  • Expensive

Tactics Edit

Bring Them On Edit

With Tireless, Indomitable, and a high MS, Katsumi is great for engaging multiple enemies. Get in contact with 2 foes, then delay activating further. If your opponents attack you, their condition will worsen while you remain unaffected. Should one be foolish enough to exhaust themselves against you, use their fatigue to your combative advantage when you finally act.

Kill or Keep Away Edit

Katsumi has two (0) special maneuvers when in melee, but his priority should be Powerful Attack to boost his strength to +4 as successfully defending with Side-Step defense will take him out of combat (and Katsumi wants to remaining engaged with multiple targets to help his team).

That said there are times to consider breaking away, such as:

  • If Katsumi is engaged with 3+ enemies, causing him to start suffering an outnumbering penalty
  • If you want to assist an ally engaged elsewhere

Ultimate Assassin Edit

If Katsumi can take an enemy by surprise, the results can be pretty brutal. An MS of 4 with Unblockable Strike usually assures a successful hit, while a damage roll of 3d6+4 (from Assassin and Powerful Attack) that can be Armor Piercing (if Katsumi spends -2 Ki) will kill most targets, or at least leave them seriously injured. This can burn a lot of Ki to do however but if it results with one less enemy to deal with, the cost is worth it.
