Is her left foot turning into ink? Or is the ink materializing into her? Is the dragon summoning HER? What does this all mean?!

I think the artist just doesn't like to draw feet...

I think her left foot is bending backwards and is hiding behind her leg

So guys I did some math, after those triple dongs really made me wonder how strong Kaede's TPA are now. And This is my conclusion:

Kaede is the second strongest TPA monster in the game now, she has a higher damage output than Awoken Orochi and is beaten by Scheat:

Kaede: (3 TPAs = 3,375x)
2335 x 3,375 = 7880,625

Awoken Orochi: (4 TPAs = 5,0625x)
1495 x 5,0625 = 7568,4375

Scheat: (5 TPAs = 7,59375)
1148 x 7,59375 = 8717,625

Even if Scheat still beats her in numbers, I think it's impressive to see how much stats matter, also Kaede has much better awakenings and a better damage output without prongs, so keep that in mind! :)

Scheat and the school Athena both have higher TPA-attacks than this girl, but who is stronger out of those top two?
Guest in reply to Jathra 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
It is silly to include one monsters' sub element but not anothers' for the calculation. It would be possible to match fire tpas with Scheat along with the water tpas for example.
Chris in reply to Jathra 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
People put HP latents on Orochi. What do they put on Scheat? I'm putting 2 atk latents and then 3 SDR on my Kaede. How do the numbers look then?
kushi<3 in reply to Chris 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
you should put skill delays rather on monsters with haste actives
good deal 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
And now Light Kanna outclasses Scheat TPA damage-wise.

So the cycle continues....
Jathra 4 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
3rd strongest, but yeah, 2nd strongest outside special REM.

2502 x 3.375 = 8444.25
Including mono green sub attack: 8444.25 x 1.1 = 9288.675

Actually outdamages Scheat due to the mono green element.

she has topped all japanese tier list, right now she's the strongest leader in the game, she even topped zhiang mei and ra dragon!

when I rolled her people said: dude, sell her for MP. and I was like: dude, hell no, she'll have her time... turned out I was right :)
By Guest 4 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
Kaede system beat ultimate arena 2. Honestly, with a constant 75% shield assuming you're good enough to make a + heart formation, you can perpetually stall on any floor and since this team has a 64x at max, she can clear any floors without a problem as well. And with the + heart formation buff, you wont' even need a shield since your shield carries over to the next floor. Truly taking the best defense is the best offense to a whole new level.
By Jubikus 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
the art reminds me of Sesshōmaru from Inuyasha.

Glad somebody else noticed it, and on top of that her name is Kaede. XD
There's no way this wasn't at least *slightly* intentional lol
By Flex! 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
All the heart cross cards are way underrated on PADx right now because of the buff, and this one especially.

She has a 64x damage multiplier, along with a constant 75% shield that now protects you against preemptives, as long as you keep the heart crosses going. Even with only two green combos, it's a 49x damage multiplier. And all of that is before considering TPAs.

If you can keep a steady stream of hearts coming, this is one of the best leaders in the game.

well good thing Yamatsumi exists, put two of him in her team and you'll get good amounts of wood and heart orbs, the health you get from his active is a good addition too since kaede has poor RCV

By Giles 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
Just evo'd my dragon callers and I've noticed that their "cross heal sheild" effect is active as long as you sweep. When you match the cross heal you'll notice the little "heart" symbol at your heal bar replaced by a small, flashing simbol of a pulsing Def shield. The shield is there if you sweep the floor!!!

I can't tell what's going on with the lower half of her body, but it looks a little off to me, disproportionally or something...
Tropos in reply to Chrispy!PF 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
There are a couple odd things going on there. But if you look at her previous art, she's quite tall and has long legs. Blue cloth is in front of the side of her thighs, making the shape look odd. She's very low to the ground for her height, being allowed by one leg bending backwards and the other disappearing into smoke/ink.

Is this maybe the artist who drew Chester? It reminds of that style. Great upgrades. Looking forward to trying this out.

She won't drop for me after 8+ of every other caller not a single Kaede :(

It's weird how she is the best sub for Ronove and they are both top tier now.

Did they ever specify what the cross-formation buffs were? Less restriction on the cross-making or shields pre-emptives?
Halcon 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
The shield will drop whenever the enemy gets a chance to make an action, including preemptives, regardless of whether or not damage is dealt. In other words, it now functions under similar rules to defense breaks.
Jathra 4 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
From what I am hearing the shield doesn't drop at all, nor drop its damage bonus until you are actually hit. So you can activate it once and then just wipe every floor and keep it. That's one hell of a buff.
By Chrispy!PF 4 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
Those weighted stats!!! wow.
By bub 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
Just when I got Xiang Mei and feeling like the top dog of the top dogs, Kaede had to come burst my bubble. 64x with triple 2 prong , 75% shield, and tons of time extensions.

By Cygnus428 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
So, i decided to focus on a kaede team, and heres what i have so far-
Kaede leader
Awoken susano no mikoto
School athena
Awoken mei mei (till i get another sylvie or kaede)
Friend keade or sylvie

Eventually i think im gonna give athena aubade gaia (avalon drakes skill) when i actually max skill her. The rest seems solid till i get another of the 6* GFE in the team.
Jakin200 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
I'm not so sure about susano since you already have a sheild. But of couse I could be wrong and it could be a great sub.
Cygnus428 in reply to Jakin200 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
Team update-
I got my second kaede, so the team is looking like this now-

Kaede lead
School athena
Green odin (bind clear and pinch healing, mainly bind heal.)
Kaede friend

I got her max multiplier by accident the first dungeon i ran her in with this ult, and she hit over 5 mil by herself. Im still trying to pick up my jaw.

By kushi<3 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
I love how Kaede is basically the strongest monster in the game (check the japanese tier lists) but people still say that tsubaki is the best jp dragon caller...
Skyknight 4 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
Where are the tier lists kept? (And have they changed since Ronove and Gremory showed up?)

nope Karde is still the top lead in the game, check Sets's blog, he always uploads the newest tier lists :)

By H. Steve 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
To clarify on the shield, it will remain active as long as the enemy doesn't get off an action AND as long as you sweep each floor. If you don't sweep, it expires.

I got 2 sumires and a tsubaki. Why can't I land a kaede :(
frenzy85 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
She's 6*, the other two are 5*.
You're about ~5x as likely to get Tsubaki/Sumire than Kaede.
That's also to say that on average, you'll get 1 Kaede for every 10 Tsubaki+Sumire

P.S. I run a Ronove lead (and have 2 dupes), so I feel your pain... I've rolled 2 Tsubakis and 2 Sumires.

I've also rolled 5 Lkali and 0 Dkali...

So what you think about:



Been working on that team. I think it will be working well.
By BoyDynamo 3 years ago ( 9.5.1 ) 
I just started running my new Kaede team after maxing her skill recently, and it's awesome. I didn't play her for a while because I was terrible at making crosses, but now that I've got the knack for it and a team that works well enough, I am finally getting my first sets of millions of damage, and getting through descended dungeons... and my monster box aches for more space!
(2972)Kaede (skill max, full awoken)
(2038)Trance Zidane (skill max, full awoken)
(3070)Vishnu (+297, full awoken)
(1513)Kano (skill max, full awoken)
(3376)X-mas Freya
Friends: Vishnu or Kaede

Update: I swapped X-mas Freya for Ronove; works well
Update: Ha! Those heady days of my first million damage. Look at that scrappy team. Xoxo

Love Kaede! Skill is quick and very useful and she does tons of damage. My team makes sure that I can always do a cross of hearts and at least 2 Wood combos.

My team:

Kaede (Assist skill: verdandi)
Persesus (Assist skill: verdandi)
Awoken Isis (Assist skill: Divine Illumination)
Awoken Yomi (Assist skill: I reject)

I want to replace yomi with another support monster, but idk who to use that has extended time.
