Rating7/10

Hijikata is a crit-buster berzerker, an absolute damage powerhouse that can push out crushing numbers against any enemy in his path. Hijikata’s skillset ensures he hits skyhigh numbers while critting hard so as to keep his damage numbers high. His skills also make sure debuffs don’t get in the way of his damage while also topping up his health. Lastly he increases his low base star weight, making sure that his cards will crit and crit hard with the crit damage buffs at the price of some health.

His base stats aren’t that amazing, rating at a below average health among berzerkers while having a very solid attack stat. His NP generation is above average among berzerkers, ending around 30% of his gauge at the end of an Arts started brave chain. His stargen is pretty average, not even hitting 20 stars on a BQQ chain.

His NP is very simple, providing nuke damage to a s ingle enemy of his. His set centers around an aggressive playstyle that requires heavy support to help him really shine in his team.

Pros

  • Damage nuke potential is extremely good.
  • Skillset is surprisingly simple to use and synergize well.

Cons

  • Stargen is too low to provide any crit stars to be of any use to himself.
  • No strong heals or defensive moves to keep him alive.
  • Low base stats and gen stats don’t help him that much.

Strategies & Tips

Hijikata would like to be paired with servants who have a high stargen or able to provide heals and attack buffs for him. His first skill should be used before a buster chain or his NP to fire. HIs second skill should only be used when he needs to remove debuffs which prevent him from dealing proper numbers. His last skill should be used before a brave chain with high crit star amounts.

Noble Phantasm

Shinsengumi is a single target Buster NP which deals massive damage to any enemy in Hijikata’s path. This NP boosted by his skills provides serious damage to the target of his attack. It’s damage increases as his HP lowers which is perfect on a servant of the berserker class.

Best Servants to Work with

ServantExplanation
Merlin
Merlin
Obligatory pick with any buster crit servant, Merlin provides health, crit stars, NP gauge, max HP buffs, Buster buffs, flat attack buffs and crit damage buffs. Literally everything that Hijikata ever needs. He serves as the perfect support to Hijikata.
Quetzalcoatl
Quetzalcoatl
Quetz is a perfect offensive support hybrid to pair with Hijikata. She can buff up his attack on top of buster buffs and guts effects. This protects him from dying while also giving him damage output.
Mysterious Heroine X (Alter)
Mysterious Heroine X (Alter)
MHXA serves as stargen supporter, giving stars for Hijikata to crit with while directing all the stars his way. She has a nice number of buster cards to chain with Hijikata as long as being able to produce stars when needed.

Best CEs

CEExplanation
Victor from the Moon
Victor from the Moon
Victor from the moon is a must have CE for anyone who does Crit buster damage, especially on berserkers. This helps Hijikata put out nice damage with buster boosts and crit boosts, ensuring his damage sources remain high.
Volumen Hydrargyrum
Volumen Hydrargyrum
Volumen is a great CE on Berzerkers, allowing them to take more hits than normal without fear while also allowing them to push out more damage.
Black Holy Grail
Black Holy Grail
While risky, Black grail gives Hijikata more damage on his NP at the cost of HP per turn. This strengthens Hijikata’s NP damage by the turn. This is a difficult CE to pull off but rewarding if done right.

Hjikata is able to Buster chain with his NP, while his other cards have low hitcounts, not allowing good gen on NP or Stars. This makes him a lot worse in terms of gen stats.
