Normal Form

Afterschool

Evolved Form

Cat

Evolves into Afterschool Sakura at level 10.

Pros

  • 100% Slows and Weakens Metal enemies.
  • Resistant to attacks from Metal enemies.
  • Resists Weaken and Slow.
  • Can perform Critical Hits.
  • Decent movement speed.
  • Mid-price for an Uber.
  • Decent recharge time

Cons

  • Low Critical chance.
  • Rather low range for general use.
  • Mediocre DPS for general use

Strategy/Usage

  • As the Metal Buster, her true usage is not really directly killing them, as she only has a 5% crit chance. However, she has 3 anti-metal abilities. She slows down Metals and weakens them by 50% with every blow. She also resists metal attacks so she only takes 3/26 damage from every hit from Metals (If the enemies are weakened, with treasures). This makes Sakura the ultimate anti-metal supporting unit, vastly weakening metal enemies while other critical hitters finish them off.
  • She can stall metal enemies easily when supported, even Metal Cyclone.
  • Sakura has fantastic synergy with long ranged Critical Cats, such as Hayabusa, Tecoluga, Marauder Cat, Space Cat, and Catasaurus.

Trivia

  • She seems to be related to Hayabusa, with their attack animation being similar. Both also have similar names (The kanji for haya in her name, 隼, is the first half of the japanese name for the peregrine falcon, or the hayabusa) and both come from a ninja clan who oppose evil.
  • She is the second Uber Rare Cat to have an official animation shortly after her introduction, the first one was Twinstars.
  • The definition of "Sakura" in Japanese is cherry blossoms, although it is also a very common name for Japanese girls. Example: Sakura Haruno
