Overview

  • Massive Max HP Bonus: At the start, the BB slots will grant the frontline a massive HP boost. As a result, Archers can actually tank her NP pretty well, especially with defense buffs (which Suzuka cannot counter). 

  • Charms Males: Suzuka will frequently use Mystic Eyes B+ to charm Male party members if they are present. Female Party members are preferred, although strong male Servants(careful, Orion is male) will still work well provided they can be cleansed on key turns. 

  • Self-buffs on NP Turn: On her NP turn, she will frequently attempt to cast Supernatural Power B (Buster Up + Crit Rate Up) before she does her NP. Thankfully these effects only last one turn.

  • AoE NP; Can Ignore Evade: Suzuka’s NP hits AoE. She also randomly may use a skill that grants her Sure Hit for 3 turns, rendering Evade skills ineffective, so Invincibility, Defense-stacking or Guts would be safer hard defensive options (or alternatively, bringing buff removal).

  • Summons Enemy Berserker on 3rd HP Bar: On her last HP bar, she will summon a Berserker (Shadow Hijikata Toshizo) who hits hard and has a decent chunk of HP.

  • Buffs Berserker Every Turn on 3rd HP Bar: Suzuka will continually cast ATK buffs on him each turn so long as she is left alive. She has a lower HP pool at this stage than the Berserker, however, so she can be taken out relatively quickly if Masters are prepared.

Team Recommendations

  • AoE DPS is viable: Since the battle has multiple enemy targets (the Shadow Berserker that spawns near the end), AoE NP Servants can be used as primary damage dealers.

  • Divine/Riding/Heaven or Earth Main Boss: Suzuka Gozen herself has many traits that can be exploited by bringing Servants that have bonus damage (Divine, Riding, Heaven or Earth), with standouts being Oda Nobunaga and Gilgamesh.

  • Male Berserker Secondary Boss: The enemy that Suzuka spawns on her 3rd HP bar, Shadow Hijikata, is Male. Beyond bringing an Archer to combat Suzuka, there are also several Archers who do well against Hijikata via Anti-Male bonus damage, notably Orion and Euryale. Orion in particular can still do well against Suzuka by merit of her higher base ATK.

  • Unable to bypass Invincibility: Suzuka Gozen has no method of granting herself Ignore Invincibility. The perfect Servant to give her a headache is Merlin (or Support Merlin) and bringing him along will make this battle a breeze. Jeanne d’Arc can also fulfill a similar purpose, although the pre-Rank Up self Stun on her NP can be a liability if a form of debuff prevention or clearing is unavailable. However, the Mystic Code Atlas Academy Uniform, and the new Memories of the Far Side of the Moon both provide ways to negate the stun.
