Here's the Combo:Multiplier breakdown (both individual and dual leaders) in case anyone was wondering:

5 COMBO = 3x ATK | 9x ATK
6 COMBO = 5x ATK | 25x ATK
7 COMBO = 7x ATK | 49x ATK
8 COMBO = 9x ATK | 81x ATK
9 COMBO = 11x ATK | 121x ATK
10 COMBO = 13x ATK | 169x ATK

Yes, Awoken Kushinada is finally here! As my name probably suggests I'm a huge fan of her and I thought, why not giving you a little bit of her backstory? Just like Ame no Uzume's backstory, this one starts with Susano as well:

After getting banned from the heavens, Susano went down on earth. While walking around he found a crying married couple of farmers (the man, his name was Ashinazushi) introduces himself as the son of Yamatsumi) who had her daughter with them. Susano ask the two farmers why they are crying, the mother (her name was Tenazuchi) explained that they used to have eight daughters but every year an eight headed snake demon (Viper Orochi) arrives and eats one of them and now it was the time that he would come back and eat their last daughter.

Ashinazushi then promises to give Susano his last daughter (Kushinada) if he kills the Orochi and so they make a plan: The two farmers should brew strong Sake (a japanese rise whine) and build a fence with eight towers. They placed a vessel with Sake on every one of the towers and when Orochi arrives he drank the Sake. Orochi then got drunk and fall asleep from the alcohol. Susano cuts of his eight heads with his sword and found the sword Kusanagi (which was later given to Yamato Takeru) which the demon accidentally swallowed. And that's basically the end of the story, Susano then marries Kushinada who the became a goddess herself (she already had godly origins tho).

The references to rice gungho is making (look at the back at her art) are obviously a play on her parents being farmers and this awoken form is all I could've dreamed of! She has the highest weighted stats of every pantheon card in the game (only beaten by the new GFE's and MP cards) and the artwork is beyond perfect. I'm glad they didn't gave her a physical typing though the dragon typing seems kinda odd to me (since she almost got eaten by one) but all in all I'm happy my favorite card in the game got some time to shine. :)

She's amazing when it comes to controlling your damage. If you know your numbers at certain combo points, you can easily defeat monsters with resolves, damage absorbs/immunities, or avoid hitting those dangerous HP thresholds.
By (づo.o)づHi 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
She's weighted at 960. Rice-> carbohydrate-> overweight. I like rice.
By Side_ 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
so there are pros and cons to her leader skill (my opinion):

pro: complete control over her damage multiplier, and no loss of necessary orbs due to accidents(saving hearts, woods, etc)

cons: you pretty much need a perfect board in order to deal the max damage or a decent board to deal high damage. also there's no HP multiplier, although she has decent HP, she may have a problem with stalling (if necessary) on higher level dungeons.

although she does have the damage reducer from her active, I personally think it doesn't think its up for stalling due to the rather long cool down.
Timm@OA 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
This was something I was interested in. Max multiplier without skyfalls seems wildly improbable.
By (°~°)@PG 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
Crazy stats, AS is interesting but for what it does it might not warrant the +2 CD form the original. Awakenings aren't great, but bind with clear bind and shield has its uses

Finally got her today and Hypermaxed her. Bring it on weekend dungeon

"ATK x3 at 5 combos. ATK x2 for each additional combo, up to ATK x13 at 10 combos. No skyfall matches. attribute cards ."

What's with that end part? Usually that means there's some new kind of effect yet to be implemented, but there's everything right there already. Is there something else she has unmentioned on the news page?

EDIT: Welp, it's gone now.

Probably just something that the developers of PADX accidentally left in, or weren't able to properly implement yet, since it's a new condition.
By ROFLpwn 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
Does this mean that the increase skyfalls for jammers/poison or increase chance of dark/fire etc. won't work?
Neko Ed 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
No, just that they won't activate if they fall in formation.
By Ea 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
So she doesn't work on skyfalls anymore, but her LS is capped at 10 combos and her AS adds a combo (so if you make an 8 combo, you get the 9 combo multiplier) and there are other new monsters with this same mechanic.

If you use a full board changer such as Sonia, Meimei, or Verdandi you will have a very good chance at at least an 8 combo, and statistically you should always have enough orbs for at least a 7, so this is and amazing leader for pure damage but as others have stated you have more control over your combos since skyfalls won't screw you over.

She will certainly benefit from having many +orbs on your team, which will add damage more consistently than prongs or rows
By Trioniks 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
Still torn if I should change to this form....hmm mm. The damage control seems interesting.
By Bob 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
Definately a + Orbs leader I see, seeing that two-prongs reduce number of combos possible.
ToyLeaf 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
nah two prongs is a viable team for Awoken Kush.
It's not like you can expect a perfect 10 combo board everytime.
By (づo.o)づHi 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
Question: does her active skill stack, i.e. two kushi skills making one usual 8-combo 10?

No the AS doesn't stack, if you DO use two, they just over write each other.

By Kirito 3 years ago ( 9.6.3 ) 
I get that people like that you can control damage with no skyfalls, but one of the things I enjoy most about this game is seeing a crazy combo count when you hit a lucky skyfall. Also, there are many other leaders that you can use for dungeons with damage limits. IMO Kush is best in dungeons like weekend dungeon or many of the 7x6 dungeons that don't have damage limits. I'd rather they removed this mechanic.

My 2 cents, though I am sure it will be downvoted.
crutomuba 3 years ago ( 9.6.3 ) 
the main issue is, with more and more dungeons requiring you to control you damage, being able to control your damage means that you have more of a chance to run this lead, which in turns brings in more people to use these leads
By confused 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
Oh, A. Kushi @ JP, why must you tease this round eye so?
Please, proceed @ NA with haste. Thy technique thine soon shall know.

Sincerely, confused.
By Tirrinz 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
So her 7-star form is weighted 120 points higher than her 8-star form...
Nice going, Gungho.
Shoukon 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
Nowadays, I see HP as the most important stat, next is Rcv, and the least important is Atk (but that doesn't mean it can go as low as "1" just like some moogle).

This Kushinadahime has 1500 more HP than her 8* form, so she is much superior in my opinion, either as Leader or as Sub.

Healer/Dragon huh?

By Dante 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
She's got a very good leader skill but even cascades don't count as combo cause they are considered skyfalls. The best case scenario would be to use an active like gronia's and set the board in a ladder form. Only then can her full potential bloom. I think it would have been better if any active would count as a combo count and ofc they should stack. I'm sure there are people who can easily work with this but it is difficult for me not to use cascades.
Shiru 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
This isn't true - Cascades DO in fact work for all "no skyfall" leaders.
By nturtle 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
The +1 combo count hardly seems worth losing my max skilled Miko over.
Another case where the Awoken version just isn't worth it.
By Gintama 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
I am the happiest owner of my personal favorite waifu Kushinada since rank 1 of 2014 rolling her during a godfest when golems were the highest chance of getting from the rolls. I have been waiting patiently for her awoken ever since awokens were introduced and implied to greko roman gods. The time has passed as i have 4 OG kush as of today. When my friends told me her awoken is released i thought it was prank, so i checked the puzzlex and there she is. My love for kush is stronger than any other characters from the game. She is the reason i have been obsessed with PAD with very simple leader skill heavily relying on combos and 75% dmg reduction for 1 turn in a short cd. Seeing her awoken art in full beauty and her new improved leader skill (of course her active skill is longer but i have skill boost for dat) blew me away. 3x times for 5 combos adding 2x times for each additional combo maxed up to 13 combos excluding skyfall drops. This a strong leader indeed as of lately I have been only using her as a sub just for her shield therefore i am very happy for such powerful change in her leader skill! I can see her as a risky leader to take that it almost feels like Anubis. The risk i am willing to take her to the big boards will be fun as hell now! I do however not like the skyfalls to be discluded because a regular board max combo is 8 or 7 without drops? But she is more viable leader than her ult evo. This is the early Christmas present from gungho in October that they could have gave me.

P.S I ONLY use rainbows teams with very weird active skill just to rely on my combos rather % dmg such rows and columns

P.S.S I play JP account just for fyi saying she is not on NA yet

P.S.S.S Awoken skills are w/e i only care about the binds, boosts, and extend only!

By Mr-ex777 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
What a waste of gargantuan stats fit for a powerhouse. I hope that the fix is coming soon since she is now a waste save for the ability to control damage good.

Are you guys for real? The biggest flaw of Combo-Leaders like Baster or Anubis was the lack of control since you can't influence the skyfall. Kushinada finally fixes that and a 7x multiplier at 7 combos or 9x at 8 combos is actually very doable and still quite strong!
Neko Ed 4 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
Agreed. The new leader skill ruins the point of using her in the first place. No skyfall matches severely limits her usefulness; I dread having my friends list using her Ult to switch to this awoken form.
