Shulk

Shulk

Now it's Shulk time! Shulk is the protagonist of Xenoblade Chronicles, and is really feeling it! He resides in Colony 9, located on the hind leg of the ancient god Bionis, who lied dormant along with its neighboring god, Mechonis, after a duel between the two that ended in a draw. When the residents of Mechonis, the Mechon, suddenly assaulted Colony 9, Shulk took up the Monado, the only weapon able to harm Mechon armor, and set out for vengeance.


Wielders of the Monado are granted the power of foresight. In Smash Bros., this ability is represented by a counterattack, whose window decreases in duration with each use. The Monado also grants him access to several Arts, each of which enhance his abilities when activated. This is the Monado's power!

Each of the five Monado Arts strengthen an ability while weakening others. An activated Art lasts for a maximum of 16 seconds. They must cool down for 10 seconds after usage, switching, or cancellation. Feel the power of the Monado! (Jump): higher jumps, lower defense, lower launch defense

(Speed): faster movement, lower jumps, weaker attacks

(Shield): higher defense, higher launch defense, stronger shield, lower jumps, slower movement, weaker attacks

(Buster): stronger attacks, weaker launch ability, lower defense

(Smash): stronger launch ability, weaker attacks, lower launch defense
Monado Arts can be scrolled through during movement in the air or on the ground, however this means that other Special Moves cannot be used until an Art is chosen. Cancel an active Monado Art by holding the Special Attack button for one second or by pressing it three times.
Back Slash deals more damage and knockback when it hits an opponent in the back. Let's not lose our heads, though!
After doing an Air Slash, perform a follow-up swing with an additional press of the button. How do ya like that!
Hold forward promptly after activating a grounded Vision to quickly lunge around your foe and launch 'em behind you. Piece of cake!
For his Final Smash, he calls up his comrades Dunban and Riki to focus their efforts for a Chain Attack. We can definitely do this!
