[Chosen King] Excalibur Arthur, more commonly known as Red Excalibur Arthur, is a Support that boosts Human allies’ Max HP by 30% and damage dealt to enemies by 20%. At the time of its release, he became a meta for top ranking PVP to set up a Human team popularly with Red Purgatory Ban, Blue “The One” Escanor, Red Kyo, Red Eastin, Red Twigo, and Red Griamore.
Perhaps his most valuable skill -- “Nameless Dance” grants him the ability to Taunt all enemies and reduces the amount of damage received by up to 75%. As an additional effect, it will also deplete the attacker’s Ult Gauge for each attack. This skill is beneficial for protecting allies and countering Ult Rush teams.
Red Excalibur Arthur can also inflict significant damage. He has an AoE attack with a Charge effect which ignores enemy Defense. On the other hand, his Ultimate is a single-target attack with Detonate effect which also deals additional damage based on the target’s Ultimate Move Gauge orbs.
He extends his viability in PVE by providing utility for difficult stages, events, and roadblocks of the game. Building around him is fairly easy because he’s an all-around hero who can deal and tank damage. His Unique ability also takes effect in PVE and is one of the best passives for Human teams.
Stat-wise, Red Excalibur Arthur has a high Attack, and above-average HP and Defense. He also has a high Regeneration Rate, Crit Resistance and Crit Defense, which complements the effectiveness of his taunt ability. Overall, he has a high Combat Class rating and can contribute to a high team CC.
- High defensive stat rating for added survivability
- One of the best support units for Human teams, boosting their Max HP by 30% and increasing damage dealt by 20%
- Versatile on offense and defense. Protects allies by taunting and depleting enemies’ Ult Gauge, and inflicts additional damage through Charge and Detonate skill effects
- His Unique effect requires all allies to be Human
- Low Pierce Rate and Crit Damage
The King's Slash - An AoE attack with Charge effect that ignores enemy Defense, inflicting significant damage to all opponents. Red Excalibur Arthur can turn up offensively when needed due to his high base Attack and Crit Rate.
Nameless Dance - Assumes a stance that Taunts all enemies, reduces damage taken, and depletes the attacker’s Ult Gauge. This skill is mainly used to protect fragile damage dealers from strong single-target damage heroes.
Ultimate: Deathpecker - A single-target attack with Detonate skill effect, adding 15% more damage per orb in the target's Ult Gauge. This skill can burst an enemy when its Ult Gauge is full; and deals even more damage against bosses with more than 5 orbs in their gauge.
Unique: Accession - As a valiant King of Camelot, Arthur’s presence on the battlefield elevates the morale of his Human allies. His unique ability strengthens both their offensive and defensive powers with a 20% increase in damage dealt to enemies and a 30% increase in allies’ Max HP. For this passive to take effect, all allies must be of the Human race.
Equipment Set - Life (HP) / Iron Wall (Defense)
Substats are as follows:
Bracer/Ring - Attack
Necklace/Earring - Defense
Belt/Rune - HP
PVP - Red Excalibur Arthur is exceptionally great for PVP (Ungeared and Geared) in his role as a Support for Human teams -- notably with Red Purgatory Ban and Blue “The One” Escanor. His Taunt skill protects his allies by directing all attacks to himself, receiving less damage, and depleting the Ult Gauge of his attacker. Moreover, he can also inflict significant damage with his high base Attack, Charge and Detonate skill effects.
To maximize Red Excalibur Arthur’s value in any team, equip him with HP and Defense equipment sets to effectively survive and protect his allies while absorbing damage.
Story Mode boss battles - He can be used to counter bosses with no dissolve immunity; meaning Red Excalibur Arthur can freely use his Taunt to passively deplete the boss’ Ult Gauge.
PVE - Red Excalibur Arthur serves as a buffer to Human teams which can be crucial for difficult stages and roadblocks of the game. He can be useful in various event stages and seasonal Tower of Trials.

Before becoming a king, Arthur was a simple child who was adopted by a man who happened to be a Holy Knight and had an adopted older brother named Kay. Kay harbored a hatred for the young boy. Once, while they were children, Kay took Arthur's sword and offered to give it back to him if he crushed an apple with a stick whilst blindfolded and in the middle of a gorge on one of several platforms.
Arthur completed this challenge with ease. Kay was furious at Arthur's skill and tossed the sword at him which lead to Arthur falling down unfazed while Kay smiled. However, Arthur was saved by a strange Holy Knight who was shocked and amazed at how Arthur managed to be brave and fearless whilst falling to his doom. He was also impressed as to how Arthur forgave his brother, even telling him he should be a king instead of a Holy Knight like their father. Arthur was shocked until it was revealed that he was Bartra Liones, the 11th king of Liones, as he wondered if he was never going to be a Holy Knight as the king of Liones and his two escorts, Slader and Hugo, left for a meeting with King Uther Pendragon.
During the Introduction arc, Arthur is rumored to have just became the new king of Camelot by the drinking patrons at Boar Hat in the small town of Bernia. In Camelot, a giant sword fell from the sky to the Earth, where people believed that it was a holy sword sent from God. Every Holy Knight tried to pull it out, but they all failed until Arthur came and successfully pulled the sword, making him the new king of Camelot.
At some point in time Arthur met Merlin, the Boar's Sin of Gluttony, who became his teacher and resolved to rescue King Bartra from the Holy Knights.
