OVERVIEW

NESTS Kyo is the equivalent of what happens if you take Kyo ’95 and decide to give him a crapton of new stuff to him. His leader skill nor stats aren’t anything to hit home about, but are good enough as a Balanced to do well. Crit rate is good enough, I guess, but it’s not necessary as he won’t reach 100%.
His normals are pretty much inferior to Orochi’s considering he does not OTG’s. However, if his tackle part hits in the normal in the air, you will almost undoubtable hit with the fire-spin ending part of his normals. This is easily doable with his fireball. Let’s talk about what makes NESTS Kyo good: His skills. His fireball is by far one of the strongest fireballs in the game, boasting a huge 724% attack multiplier along with a 28% attack power increase. It’s nothing special until you combine it with his other skills, which both can be easily used.
His flaming uppercut has super armor for the entirety of the duration and gives a Power Gauge acquisition buff by 70% for 10 seconds. This is also put with Power Gauge acquisition decrease by 70% for the enemy. PvP wise? It’s a good finisher/fuck you to a enemy with something like Baseball Yuri’s set. Practically? Better use in PvE to spam specials (hence you should REALLY get his 5-star card if you do plan on using him a lot). His running grab’s broken. Enemy’s down? Grabbed. Need a finisher? Grab. Enemy is half a screen away? Grab. Enemy has super armor like AS Yamazaki? Bitch, GRABBED.
This has 18% Crit Chance increase, which is almost Ramon’s entire schtick. This is ridiculous almost entirely for obvious reasons, with a moderately low CD of 10.8 seconds to boot. NESTS Kyo’s striker skill give a 30% attack power burn effect to all enemies for each second for the duration of 6 seconds, along with decreasing their critical rate by 80%. That striker skill is basically a 180% attack power burn for 6 seconds, which basically outdoes 98 Kyo’s by far.
NESTS Kyo’s passives are a bit weird, as he has Crit Rate increase, stun/petrify/freeze duration decrease and defense up. However, he does also come with the lucrative attack power increase that a lot of characters would love.
