Nikke Red Hood Guide: best teams and equipment

nikke red hood in goddess of victory nikke

Nikke Red Hood is a unit that’s truly built differently. When it comes to most Nikkes, each one has its specialty. When it comes to Red Hood, her uniqueness stands out because it has an interwoven flexibility not seen in any other character thus far. An iron-type battler with a passion as fiery as the color of her hair, this unit is a must-have for all players. 

Is Nikke Red Hood good in Goddess of Victory Nikke?

While undoubtedly a very strong damage dealer, Red Hood’s true power that puts her a cut above the rest is her special interchangeability mechanic. Instead of having a burst I, II, or III, Nikke Red Hood is an All burst, meaning that you can activate it at any time in a battle.

Normally, you bring a unit from each number category because bursts are set off by numerical order - for example, if you made a team of four burst III units and one burst II, you would be stuck because there’s no burst I to start the chain. Now let’s say your burst I or II dies in battle, leaving a gap in your chain - basically, she can fill in any of those roles, so if you’re stuck, there’s no one better than Nikke Red Hood.

The only true downside of Red Hood is that she is difficult to get because of the low summoning rate of Pilgrim characters. You can either try your luck with the Pilgrim gems or wait for Red Hood to get another banner in the future - Modernia had one, so it’s very possible for her to get one too. 

How to play Nikke Red Hood in Goddess of Victory Nikke?

How Red Hood will benefit you depends on what number stage you activate her burst in the chain, as her skills vary with each one chosen. If activated at burst I, she holds a supportive role and if done at burst II, Nikke Red Hood becomes a taunt unit. Clicking at burst III will trigger her main damage move.

While her supportive skills are good, she shines best when used as a damage dealer because she does a lot of roughing up the more her attack goes up and even more with a full charge. Her burst III also has pierce and a charge speed boost, the benefits just do not compare with the ones from burst I and II activations. Also, keep in mind that those can’t be stacked. 

All The Skills of Red Hood Goddess of Victory

Despite specializing in damage, this Nikke is a true jack-of-all-trades unit, as Nikke Red Hood has a wide variety of skills. No matter which burst you activate, her normal attack and first skill are always the same, it's her second skill and burst move that change.

  • The first skill of Red Hood, called Glaring Eyes, raises her charge speed up.
  • Once she goes into full burst, the boost from Red Hood’s second skill Wild Tooth will activate. If you click her at burst I, she’ll boost pierce for all the allies , so if you’re going that route, pick units with pierce, such as Alice. If burst II is chosen, this skill of Nikke Red Hood will instead boost the defense for Red Hood . For burst III, it will boost her attack .
  • Red Hood’s burst move Red Wolf raises attack if you activated her at burst I , which ties in with the supportive benefits of Wild Tooth’s burst I boosts. Even though you can only use this and the burst II benefits once for every fight round, you can use it and then activate her damage burst in the next chain. Burst II benefits allow the enemy focus to be on Red Hood so that allies don’t get hit. At the same time, Nikke Red Hood will be protected by her HP boost. Burst III activation will perform a move that slams a wave of heavy damage into the enemy.
