Brave Ike, when paired with Brave Lucina and Flayn, is an immortal killing machine who absolutely shatters the weapon triangle. I am sure this has been talked about before many times. But I only just slapped DC/Null C-Disrupt on him (previously had Steady Breath/QR3) and he just. Murders things. All the things. Units who are apparently about to do massive, fatal damage to him just kind of… go tink tink upon impact like they’re tapping sadly on transparent aluminium that they thought was just glass.
He’s currently only +3 with zero DF, although I really think I’m going to finally use my stockpiled DF to +15 him and then start saving up for his rerun in February.
