Swordmaster

“Anticipates enemy movements to unleash powerful counterattacks! Reduces damage and hits foes back. Favours katanas.”

Unlocked when Swordmaster Kamiizumi is defeated.

Specialty: Counter

Has a 60% chance to counterattack, when taking a single-target physical attack, and deal the same damage as a conventional attack.
