Ah, he was so close to being really good. How close?
Well, Arusha packs the Success skill: if a rear-guard's
power hits 25k+ by any means, be it skills, triggers,
boosting, whatever, he becomes successful, and when he
becomes successful with GB1 online, you pitch a card to
re-stand him. His third and final GB1 skill activates on
attack: he gives a rear-guard 4k, and then Arusha
becomes unable to be chosen by trigger effects until end
of turn. (Yes, unfortunately that's an errata, live with
Oh dear. Well, an extra attack on VG circle is always
nice, and it's a +1 overall for you. While he certainly
will not be gaining any extra Criticals for you, the
opponent still can't just 1-to-pass you. Why? Because
you could still apply all power to Arusha's BOOSTER, so
Arusha himself will gain more power. Well, assuming he
swings boosted, because without the ability to gain
power through some other means like a Break Ride, one of
the attacks is going to be piss-weak and blockable with
a 5k shield. Or since it's only one damage, no guard the
So overall, not especially good, or at least not as good
as he appears. As far as backups to Bigbelly go, I'd
rather go with Chatnoir, since at least the fail-con
sucks a little less.

Dammit, English Bushiroad screwed
up card text again, so we're gonna start this review
from the bottom skill to the top. Like many Great Nature
units, Arusha can give 4k to a unit when he swings, but
if you do, Arusha cannot be given any sort of trigger
effect for the rest of the turn. This isn't the worst,
because Great Nature rearguards get notoriously swole,
thus, your rearguards are the ones putting in all the
work anyway. This ain't Overlord.dek.
Once any of your rearguards reach
25k power, ditch just one card and Arusha restands, with
no loss in drive checks. Neat. At first, I was kind of
apprehensive about a restanding Vanguard that can't
receive trigger effects, because the main draw in most
restanding vanguards is that they're not dependent on
your rearguards. But like I said earlier, your
rearguards (Tusk Master, Crayon Tiger, Tapir) are what
win you games, even more so if you give a crit on a
rearguard that's just gonna restand via Tusk/Crayon.
Do note that Success triggers by
power gained by any means, including the basic motion of
boosting a unit. One unit doesn't need to be 25k by
itself; once a row swings for 25k or higher, Arusha can
The easiest thing that comes to
mind as far as backup Grade 3s is Chatnoir; setting up
the breakride turn is easy from the FC2015 Winter
support, and the fact that G-Guards are a thing.
Arusha can definitely put in work,
but Bigbelly has more utility available to him that
Arusha can't match, mainly Aliberry. You can still roll
heads with Arusha though.
