Do you remember playing Halo and getting a kill streak so spectacular that the Announcer said “Untouchable!” in the most majestic way possible? Or when you were in a desperate hole in last place in Mario KART, but you got lucky enough to pick up a Star and became an Invincible force to anyone unfortunate to cross your path? Or maybe, just maybe, you were lucky enough to pull 6 Hinata’s and get to 10th Dan Kage no sweat? Well, all those examples don’t even begin to describe how Unstoppable! resurrected Sasuke Weasley is. Coming in as the 21th Blazing Fest Unit and being the center of attention for January’s Blazing Fest, Edo Nagato is Shinra Tensei all enemies in his path. Now while he might be a phenomenal unit, let’s see what his strengths and weaknesses to explain why he’s no Jesus.

 

With every Blazing Fest, there has always been some kind of gimmick that makes the unit unique. Skill Tsunade with her Nuking and Healing at the same time, Sakura being the Best Healer in the game, Madara being the first to have Negate Type Disadvantage, etc. Now what is Nagato’s gimmick? Well, oddly, he has two Gimmicks. The first being the Best Tank in the game with 50% Damage Reduction (Sync Skills included) and the second being the first unit to display new ability that allows a 5% Chance to retrieve chakra when attacked. Now, I know what your reactions might’ve been when first seeing this ability:

“NANI?!?!” “Holy f@?k, he’s so broken! That new ability is a MUST have!” “3/6 chakra, both Jutsu’s are AOE, 30% Damage Reduction Abilities, Insane PvP Stats, and that Chakra Recovery ability just prove that Jesus really is in Blazing!”

Now, I want us to take us a step back. Just Dm1nzz has said, Nagato isn’t the GOAT; and while he might be a fantastic unit, he’s not as great as he’s hyped out to be. First, let’s start looking at on what makes him only human……. or only Cyborg at this point. Starting off, he’s balanced by being Short Range unit, he has High HP and his damage is pretty good for 3/6 Chakra, but it’s still very average damage compared to other AOE users. One of his major flaws is that his gimmick of being a Tank resides in his final dupes and his Sync Skill, only working with Wisdom. So not only do you have to be lucky enough/whale your heart out to get all the dupes, but he can only reach Godly amounts of Damage Reduction if you run Wisdom only. Finally, his other gimmick also needs dupes to unlock and is only a 5% of activating. It’s exactly when Madara (“The Vilest Name”) came out and people were wowed with his final ability of 20% Chance to not use Chakra on his Ultimate, which is only a 1/5 chance of praying to Jashin that the RNG works out in your favor. This time however, instead of a 1/5 chance, you drop down to a measly 1/20 chance.

 

With all these points in mind, I hope it makes you realize that while Edo Nagato hits a soft spot for Naruto fans, don’t think he’s extremely broken and a must have unit. I would talk about his PvP advantages, but I feel that’s beaten to a dead horse at this point and how he falls short without dupes. Just remember, it’s like Rag N’ Bone has sung, “He’s only human, after all.”
