I think the x4 instead of x5 is fair.

1. You have a controllable spike.
On a Goemon team the biggest weakness was the lack of control in:
a) Monsters were too strong and will KO you before you can get to 20%
b) Pre-emptive strike on the following floor
c) Floors that will be so kind and recover all your HP

2. You have an extra 1.5x for God Types for FOUR turns.
If you have subs that are God type and Physical, thats a x4 x4 x1.5 = x24
Lets see which monsters have a God and Physical type:
Okuninushi (Delay)
Takeminakata (Fire and Light enhance)
Dark Izanami (Damage reduction)
Orochi (5 turn Delay)
Isis (Reduce Bind)
Shiva (Void Defense + Fire enhance)
Parvati (Create Hearts)
New Kirin (Gravity)

Gravity, Void Defense, Enhance Orbs, x24 DAMAGE FOR FOUR TURNS, FIVE TURN DELAY
Five turns not enough? Pop up Parvati, heal and take a hit. Then use a friend's Hercules and now you can do it again.

So Hercules can be great if you are rich. I am not and I don't have Okuninushi, Orochi, Shiva, Parvati nor Kirin... but I can dream.

So imagine if Hercules had x5, with a friend and the active skill you are looking at a controllable x37.5 for four turns, now thats a little over powered.

The only problem with this is that Herc requires a REM heavy team. At least with Gomen, you can grab some fire monsters like Echidna, Homura, and others. It requires maybe only one or two fire REM monsters. The only P/G monsters you can grab on a Herc team w/o using a REM is Take and DIzenami.

Haha ya I absolutely agree. When I think of Hercules (that's how I've always spelled it so I'll just continue to out of disrespect for this awful card lol) I think of pure strength and just awesomeness. If this card genuinely has any positives or anything useful about it then I'm completely missing it, but that's a sarcastic statement because it clearly doesn't lol. Anyways, Hercules here needs more than just a buff; it needs a complete face-lift of a remodel in order for it to be at least a marginal sub. That won't happen, so I'm going to feed my lvl 12 pre-evo form that's been in my box for well over a year now haha.

By Jerry@LL 4 years ago ( 6.5.2 ) 
He could be a useful sub for ultimate athena as a farmable replacement to izanagi's active skill if you can stall out the 25 turns. obviously he is far less preferable in this roll but better than nothing.

Definitely a welcome addition to Karin/Seiryuu teams though. Green's always been a blind spot for Karin until this and green delays have been coming out. Delay's still limited to REM only, though (too bad the NA version isn't getting the delays any time soon). However, a (nearly) all-god team with this guy isn't exactly impractical even for non-IAP.

For example:

Karin/Hercules/Hera/Hera/wild card/Friend Karin

It's also a welcome addition to Bastet teams. Her flexibility also makes an all-god team with her viable even for non IAP. For example, you could replace Karin with Bastet on the above example and it would still be viable.

Good addition to Horus and Ra teams too if there's room to stall somewhere.

That CD is crazy, but enhancing the regular Ra to 54X for over 4 turns is nice, but even nicer is how he'll play with Horus since its much more likely to actaully enhance 4 straight spiked attacks… it may be worth trying to force a stall.

So we don't think he's good for a goeman team? Heck with the amount of damage he does, his active (which can be brought from 25 to 15 turns) allows us to control where and when we want goeman to start steam rolling (for those of us without Luci).

Add in the fact that he's physical, he goes well with the common thief + bubble team, giving the team slightly higher HP and able to take part when you activate bubblie.

I'm getting him just to have him, but I can see where he'd be a great piece to have for at least a thief team going up against something blue.

Last thing--since they came out with the Bone Fish thing with the active when you have 1 HP, I'm not surprised to see more of these types of pieces with actives that reduce to 1 HP--kind of on the lookout for more.

The point of reducing hp to one is to help activate his LS on a boss or particularly difficult sub-boss. This is NOT meant to be a grind team monster, this is meant to burst and kill before the enemy even has a chance to hit you.

Hey, he's farmable and the leader skill is a fun switch up. It's how I also view Athena and host of other farmable gods. Fun leaders. If you can farm him, you have a better leader anyhow.

As a sub, I like him. The G/L physical/god combo is a welcome twist to my collection.

60 seems too much for cost though and the 5 mil curve is over the top.

Maybe he's meant for teams that haven't surfaced yet.
By FunkY PiG 4 years ago ( 6.4.3 ) 
Actually, paired with a friend's physical Kirin and there's a good farmable team.

4X, 5X, 20X damage. Plus a 3X spike, or two

King Bubblie
B/R Seig
Mastering (max skilled, 5t CD orb reset)
optional… echidna/leek/tengu/king bubble #2

has skill ups
Near 20k HP
low RCV, about 1000
panic button in Mastering

I like Super Leek here, she kinda closes the gap on the main problem with the team by bringing in 800 RCV and an Iron Wall Stance. You might prefer her to Echidna.

There's room for two or even three King Bubblies. Crazy sounding, but not really! Each can give 3 skill ups and 3 rounds of 60X damage could be potent medicine.

Forgot to add the 1.5X for 4 turns to this thought process… I'm not sure it's that important to consider.

All this reasoning applies to a Take friend too, only now you're down to:

0X > 3.5X > 14X plus the spike to 42X. I prefer Kirin, but if orb matching isn't you're strongest skill, this team will probably be more stable and the subs are even more flexible. No matter, you'll run both!

"Active Skill:Overcoming Hardship

is there and error on this (or is it just my computer displaying the active skill wrongly?)

Shouldn'd the active read "reduce hp to 1, do a nuke, buff god attack 1.5x"?

I had an epiphany last night. He should be a Leilan sub along side Attacker Amaterasu, Liu Bei, and Athena. Use his active, your health drops, have Ama heal you, and continue your rampage with an extra 1.5x atk for 4 turns. There are plenty of TPA's to make up for his lack of raw power, and his HP at max is excellent for tanking. Just spit balling here. Currently I'm using him to sub for Zeus-Dios.
By Legend7Nat 3 years ago ( 7.8.1 ) 
Would he be a good sub for goemon seeing as how he is physical, provides a mini spike, and can activate goemon leader skill

Edit: just checked I thought Goemon was god but he is just physical so the spike won't affect him

巨人に食われた学生 4 years ago ( 6.5.2 ) 
I hate to use Percy Jackson books as a reference (because too many people say "in Percy Jackson..." when it is a fictional story), but what the other guy said is true. His Greek name Heracles means "the glory of Hera" or something like that and is his original name. However, many people prefer to use his Roman name Hercules. In fact, some people are stupid and think you are wrong if you use his Greek name. It's good that you know his Greek name but in truth, you're the one who needs to read and understand he has two ways to say his name.
ravenspire 4 years ago ( 6.4.3 ) 
Both are valid; even God of War and the Percy Jackson books use the Roman spelling (Hercules) instead of the classical Greek one (Heracles). People seem to prefer the Roman version because it's the one that's more ingrained into pop culture, it seems.

In fact, I'd just outright ignore the spelling debate and skip right to the crunch, if I were you: Herc REALLY needs a rework to be more viable than he is now.

By Jaysinnn 4 years ago ( 6.3.0 ) 
*sigh* if only his leader skill was something besides physical, then he'd be more feasible as a leader. The only team I can really see him leading consists of:

W/L Parvati
War God Take
Solar God Artemis

which, in it's own right isn't too bad, besides the fact that it's more Light based than Wood, which is what I assume they had in mind, is extremely difficult for a Non-IAP player without quite a bit of luck to obtain, and it's pretty bad at stalling 25 turns for the active.

As a stat stick with a Norse God's ability, he's alright. I can see him on my Athena team, because I lack someone to boost attack, but the reducing HP to one with a 10x attack seems like it does more harm than good.
By T.G. Cid 4 years ago ( 6.3.0 ) 
I guess I can see his value, after reading some of these comments, but he just smacks of weird decision-making on GungHo's part.

he's SO fricking attractive, why does he have to be so useless D:
Trammel@PG 4 years ago ( 6.3.0 ) 
I don't know that I'd call him useless. He, in one active - buffs God types like a Norse but for 4 turns instead of 3, Does major wood damage to all enemies and instantly gives his team 16x attack for those next four turns. Add in the monsters he pairs with like Athena, Zeus/Zeus-Dios, Izanagi, Venus/Yomi and such and he's pretty scary.

Is he weak to pre-emptive attacks? Sure is. Ok - Don't take him to descends where those are common. But as for places like Zeus, Hera or Hera-Is? To me it seems like he'll make them VERY easy to farm quickly and effectively.
buzzyrecky in reply to Trammel@PG 4 years ago ( 6.3.0 ) 
wait, did they change his leader skill from physical only to all, or is that a padx mistake?

(either way, though... leader skill is a less powerful goemon, the 10x wood really isnt that much damage, and i guess the multiplier is okay, but having it come with dropping your hp to one isnt much fun)

Non-IAP izanagi basically, the only thing saving horus from sucking without an izanagi.

I think Herc's main use is to fill the green slot in multicolor spike teams. Green's always been a tough slot to fill - usually filled in by the likes of Valkyrie, Susanoo, and Kushinada. While these are respectable options in their own rights, Susanoo and Kushinada are REM-only while Valk may not always be the best option for some teams (I'm looking at you, Karin/Seiryuu). Arguably, you don't have to be REM heavy to use him simply because the Hera sisters are commonly used regardless. And all three of the sisters are god typing. Verche/Mystic Light Knight is another non-REM god. Plus whoever you chose as a starting roll.

His main use, much like the Hera sisters (unless you obtain DQ Hera), is to be an extremely effective sub and stat stick; and not a lead.

Anyone saying this isn't a great monster isn't looking at the big picture. His leader skill isn't as good as goemon's, sure. But, does every monster have to have a leader skill as good as goemon's to be useful? On a dual izanagi all god team he gives your whole team 18.375 times damage for four turns. For two of those turns you could be doing 36.75 damage with the two izanagi's activated ability. Any spike team that has all god's would easily welcome this guy.
Daniel9dsi 3 years ago ( 7.8.1 ) 
Izanagi requires your hp to be above 80 percent and this thing's active brings you down to 1 hp
