[KOF '98] Asamiya Athena, more commonly known as Green Athena, is an exclusive unit drawn from the 7DS x KOF’98 event. Many have found her niche in PVP as a Sub hero to counter Ult dependent / Ult Rush teams. Her Unique ability depletes the enemies’ Ultimate Move Gauge orbs when an allied hero defeats an enemy in PVP. With her Holy Relic acquired from the KOF Returning Collab Event, Athena recovers 40% of the damage taken when she takes 30% or more of Max HP in damage.
Similar to how Green Deathpierce’s passive works, Green Athena does not need to enter the battlefield for her unique ability to take effect. She can be useful in the shadows and work for your team while hiding in the sub-slot. With this, she can fit easily with almost any team as long as your goal is to prevent the enemies from using their Ultimate Move.
Stat-wise, Green Athena has high secondary stats (Resistance, Regeneration Rate, Crit Chance, and Crit Defense). Her base HP is low and her Attack and Defense are average.
- Counters Ult rush and Ult dependent teams in PVP
- Holy Relic allows her to recover HP if she receives more than 30% of Max HP as damage
- Limited use outside PVP
- Cards at rank 1 have minimal impact and need to be skilled up to activate skill effects
- Easily countered by heroes with attack disable
Phoenix Arrow - A single-target attack with a high damage multiplier of up to 500%. It can also Cancel Stances and Stun at rank 3, useful against heroes that heavily rely on stances in PVP like Blue Chandler, Red Excalibur Arthur, Blue Tarmiel, and Green Estarossa. This skill can also be useful in event stages where a stun is required to complete challenges.
Psycho Ball - A single-target attack with Detonate skill effect, adding 15% more damage per orb in the target's Ultimate Move Gauge. This skill can burst an enemy when its Ultimate Move Gauge is full; and deals even more damage against bosses with more than 5 orbs in their gauge.
Ultimate: Crystal Shoot - A single-target attack with high damage multiplier starting at 700%. It can also Cancel Stances.
Unique: Everyone's Pop Star - This ability is what makes Green Athena viable PVP sub hero as she’s able to counter a lot of Ult rush teams that exist in every meta. Any allied unit can activate her Unique ability after defeating an enemy hero and it will automatically deplete 2 orbs from all the enemies’ Ultimate Move Gauges when the turn ends. However, do take note that this ability only works in PVP.
Equipment Set - Onslaught (Attack) or Life (HP) / Iron Wall (Defense). Use HP and Defense sets for more Combat Class.
Bracer/Ring - Attack
Necklace/Earring - Defense
Belt/Rune - HP
PVP - Used situationally as a sub in Ungeared (Normal) and Geared (Elite) PVP, countering Ult rush teams. Teams consisting of Green Athena also counter heroes that can fill their Ultimate Move Gauge when attacking.
PVE (Event quests) - Her Stun ability can be useful in event stages where it is required to complete challenges. She’s not viable for use in other PVE areas.
Training Grotto - She can be used to counter Speed-type (Blue) Illusion Ambers, especially against Level 3 stages.
