Are you playing My Hero One’s Justice? We have all the character breakdowns ready for you! Last time we covered one of the main villains from the series, Tomura Shigaraki, and today we will continue with another popular one! It’s time to talk about Chizome Akaguro, probably better known as Stain! He possesses the Bloodcurdle quirk, which allows him to temporarily subdue the enemy by ingesting samples of their blood. In My Hero One’s Justice, he comes at you full-force with his deadly katana, forcing you to play to his pace at all times. In this character breakdown, we will go over Stain and his strengths alongside his weak points, plus provide you with assist advice to ensure Stain keeps his insane rush down game in tact.
Stain is a character who can play at a variety of ranges, giving him a lot of options to choose from regarding his approach. His katana is great to throw out there since it covers a good amount of space in front of him, and throwing kunai at people from afar is great for zoning and annoyance. Stain wants his opponent to feel annoyed because the whole idea behind his style is to find the right opening to strike... and once he does, it’s big damage from anywhere on the screen. Since he can call upon his assists to reset pressure and lock you down, get wall combos for multiplied damage!
His speed can outpace a lot of the other characters in the game, allowing him to play a very hit-and-run style, and granting him openings when the opportunity presents itself. While his toolkit supplies him both defensive and offensive tactics, his general game plan is to whittle away at your life gauge by throwing his kunai, and once he’s found an opening, he can dash in and create a very intimidating offense that can be hard to handle at times. With the right assists, Stain can really apply a lot of setplays that allow him to maintain up close and personal pressure, while also playing the keep away game until it’s time to strike again. You generally want to be racing around your opponent, weaving and dodging your way through their defensive walls until you find that crack to break wide open. His aerial combo does a great deal of damage, which can be extended with the right assist, as we’ll cover in the next section. Don’t be afraid to take risks with this character because it will pay off in the end!
Stain’s Preferred Sidekicks
As we mentioned prior, Stain is all about the hit-and-run approach, messing around with his opponents head and then, once there’s an opening, you strike with all of your might. If you’re looking to maintain offense on your team, then having a character like Bakugo as your sidekick can really be helpful as it chases down the enemy, and punches them repeatedly giving you a chance to deal some damage. Aizawa yet again is another great sidekick because he’s able to lock the enemy down both in offensive and defensive scenarios, granting Stain the ability to really play the game at his pace and make the enemy suffer for their mistakes.
All for One is another great addition because his ability also locks the enemy down, which gives you the chance to rush in and start slashing away. For a more defensive approach, you can opt for Kyoka’s quirk, which stuns the enemy if they happen to run into the soundwave, or even Fumikage since he can pretty much keep the enemy at bay at all times with his nasty punches. Again, My Hero One’s Justice is all about creativity and so we encourage you to try out whoever you feel is best! These are just some of our suggestions that we feel provide the best fit for Stain and his overall strategy.
Stain is a threat once he hits you, but if you can keep him out of harm’s way, he really isn’t that hard to deal with. While his speed is certainly faster than most of the cast, it can be subdued with the right sidekicks and strong defense. If you mash buttons against this guy then be prepared to suffer the consequences, big time. We hope you found our breakdown to be enjoyable but also insightful, providing you with a little heads up to ensure your game plan is effective online! Next up we’ll be taking a look at more villains, this time Dabi and Toga!
