When it comes to choosing a new hero and character to play in My Hero Academia: The Strongest Hero, the community is quite divided in this regard, and for good reason. When Endeavor was released in June, many developers broke players’ trust. Endeavor came up with a handful of heavy modifications that disgusted him after his release, which set him apart from his original construction. With the release of Stain, players are much more worried about whether they should fit on his banner or not, and whether he is even good. Fortunately, it doesn’t look like the developers have modified Stain, which means that Stain is a pretty solid character that you can add to your list.
Stain is a heavy fight that prefers to stay as close to its goal as possible. It’s a huge boxing advantage for his enemy, but it’s also his downfall. If he does not have a dash and cannot cross the distance between him and anyone he fights against, his opponent can keep him at a distance and stop any attacks he is able to deal. Only a handful of characters can keep him in a subdued state, but most heroes will have to fight him closely because of their basic attacks and limited abilities, which makes him a decent choice for PvP.
As for PvE, Stain also glows as you control it against any AI fighters. Thanks to his short-range combat skills, he is able to handle most battles. With a single ranged attack, he can use it often enough to strengthen him, but it’s not as important as in PvP, where it’s a victory or defeat against a coaching opponent.
If you use Stain for Super Co-Op Battles, we recommend placing it in the front row. You want to pair it with someone who also benefits from stepping up the attack, with someone like All Might would be extremely good, or having these two battles at the same time would also serve you well. The more attack power Stain can receive, the more they will benefit from its overall passive ability and abilities, especially when it becomes stronger and you increase it. Many of his passives increase his overall attack power and base attack speed, and doubling him makes him an even stronger fighter on your team.
For PvP, we had quite a bit of success in having Stain in the second or third role for our list. During the battles, we could trade him for our first hero while they were in the middle of a combo, and make sure that Stain had to cover zero distance against his opponent, and he could keep them in a corner at all times. We tried to use him in the first role and he was decent with his dash, but if he misses him, he will fight for the rest of the fight. Given how predictable this attack is, it is almost expected and most experienced players are ready for it.
Overall, we believe that Stain is a useful banner to use and to encourage players to hunt for them with event tickets. Developers have not made any current changes or modifications since its original build on the first release day.
