Rabbit's Reviews Tametomo
NA Release Date: 07/2024

It’s been a while since our last gen-pool SSR. Tametomo may not be a great unit mechanically, but he’s pretty interesting, at least, and he’s conceptually very cool. Unfortunately for Tametomo, there are a lot of AoE Buster Archers, and Tametomo’s kit is not exactly well-suited to the current Buster meta. That said, he has some neat tricks and is probably better than Napoleon, so… there’s that.

In a world with lots of great AoE Buster units, Tametomo struggles to stand out. He’s technically Koyan-compatible and has good steroids in theory, but there are a lot of asterisks scattered throughout his kit. He’s firmly in usable territory, at least, but there’s not a lot of reason to bring him if you have one of the many, many stronger options.

Much like Bakin, Tametomo is just “fine.” He’s competing against a crowded pool, and he doesn’t really stand out much. Unlike Bakin, though, Tametomo is not directly competing with a superior free unit, and he does have some unique value to his name in the form of his pierce-everything NP and his rolling buffs for stall contexts. If pressed I’d say he’s better than Napoleon, even without an interlude, so there’s that. Nobody needs Tametomo, but he’s not a bad spook if you don’t have one of the better AoE Buster Archers. Plus he’s cool, so there’s that.

Tametomo is within reasonable buff range of being very good, and he does some neat stuff as-is. He definitely comes with a set of drawbacks—he has to avoid his Buster cards to maximize his NP damage, and his rolling NP damage buff skill doesn’t really work properly when he’s looping—but still, could be worse. Decent Servant.
