    “Revelry in the dark” – Fumikage Tokoyami

    The cool and stoic darkness dweller of Class 1-A, Fumikage Tokoyami is here to drag evildoers into the abyss where they belong! His quirk, Dark Shadow, allows him to manifest a monstrous shadow from his body that fights alongside him. The darker it is, the stronger Dark Shadow grows; and together the two faithful allies are ready to show villains that they should, indeed, be afraid of the dark!

    Tokoyami is a 7 hand size character that will rely on strings of attacks to successfully bring his rivals into the realm of shadows. He is able to reduce and increase the damage of all attacks by 1 when he’s committed, providing support while he concentrates on his quirk. This is alongside his main ability, which allows him to pick up the card core to his strategy: “Summon Dark Shadow” in order to bring true ruin to his enemies. Tokoyami is never truly alone, and his ability to bring his friend back from the discard pile proves it!

    “…Another who communes with the abyss.” – Fumikage Tokoyami

    Unleash the darkness within with the Action Card: Summon Dark Shadow! This card will give all of your attacks speed and damage as long as it is in the card pool, and its powerful enhance ability will allow you to string attacks together with ease! Although that powerful enhance comes at the disadvantage of committing your character; but of course, a true lurker in the dark like Tokoyami has no qualms about being committed; he prefers it!

    Now, let’s see what this Jet-Back Hero can do on the offensive. His Dark Shadow Slash may start off slow, but it picks up considerable speed when it’s helped by faithful allies! Not to mention the extra punch it will pack if your character is currently in darkness. Meanwhile, Tokoyami’s Dark Shadow Talon will ensure that his faithful quirk enters the fray, providing further bonuses to his attacks by adding it to the card pool! And let’s not ignore a Deadlock Enhance that is sure to inspire fear on your rivals by slashing at their health!

    Tokoyami is great at working together with others, as he is used to having to work in tandem with his own shadow. This ability to work well in a team is demonstrated by how he takes advantage of the Ally keyword, which is also found in his Action Card! Stand Back To Back with your allies to mitigate some damage and fight another day. In the moments where you are alone, do not forget that you are Stronger In Darkness to buff up your attacks and push the pain through!

    “With your positions revealed, you’re in my crosshairs. And there’s no hiding from the coming storm.” – Fumikage Tokoyami

    Villains are a superstitious and cowardly lot, and no move is more prepared to make them cower in fear than Tokoyami’s signature move: Dark Shadow Ruin! This powerful move will make your action cards in your card pool not count towards progressive difficulty, further increasing the value Tokoyami obtains from Summon Dark Shadow! To further prove how far Tokoyami has mastered his quirk, once this attack has received both a speed and a damage bonus, it will increase its power further and leave your opponent stunned! When combined with its Breaker: 1 keyword, this attack is sure to bring ruin to your rivals both on the offense and the defense. Your villains will be nevermore!

    That’s it for our beloved bird of darkness. Look forward to playing as him and spreading the dark hand of justice alongside his shadow in the My Hero Academia CCG, available now!
