HP: 2940. ATK: 835. RCV: 142.
Special: Empties all orbs. Deal damage to 1 enemy.
Wapol empties all of your orbs to deal damage. It's not the greatest special, but not too terrible either. He has a lot of health though.
HP: 2601. ATK: 1008. RCV: 192
Special: 50& damage reduction and 2X RCV for 2 turns.
Absalom can really help you survive when you're in a pinch. Unfortunately, there are other characters that do this job better.
HP: 2734. ATK: 1205. RCV: 262
Special: 1000 fixed damage and Neighboring slots into STR.
Kuma will be the best bet for a STR Shooters. He reliably converts orbs and does fixed damage and his stats are also reliable.
HP: 1606. ATK: 910. RCV: 110
Special: 50% chance of empty slots becoming STR. 15X damage to all enemies.
Mr.4 does not have a reliable special. His stats could be called decent though. Somewhat decent.
HP: 1120. ATK: 943. RCV: 180
Special: 20X damage to 1 enemy.
Mr. 5 has a decent ATK... He'll be your not so great hard hitter if you use him.
HP: 3140. ATK: 1418. RCV: 83
Special: 10X damage recieved last turn to all enemies.
Black Beard has amazing stats and that alone is why he gets a high ranking. His special, if used correctly, can also be extremely powerful. Also, he looks pretty cool, so that's worth something.
