Tachikaze Emblem

"Tachikaze" (たちかぜ) is a clan from the Dragon Empire nation, which has Imaginary Gift Accel. The clan is themed around dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures and beings augmented with mechanical or artillery equipment. It is the elite ground assault troops of the dragon nation.


Tachikaze is based on the mechanic of Equip Gauges, named "Armed Equip Gauge" (武装ぶそう ゲージ Busō Gēji), reflects its theme of heavy weapons and artillery. Equip Gauges are stacked behind the player's rear-guards to then be used for a variety of purposes, common uses include gaining [Power] Power icon.png, generate resources, discard them as costs, activating stronger abilities if a rear-guard has a certain amount of gauges stacked beneath it, among others. Some abilities allow the moving of Equip Gauges between different rear-guards to better manage their usage.

Additionally, Tachikaze focuses on retiring the player's own rear-guards as a cost to gain [Power] Power icon.png and generate advantage while using rear-guards that trigger their effects when they are retired. Since the retired rear-guards often will have Equip Gauges, their effects upon being retired usually involve making use of those Equip Gauges, either by adding them to the player's hand, moving them to another rear-guard, or even superior calling them to maintain field advantage and potentially do more attacks if they were retired during the battle phase.

The Ancient Dragons deviate from the focus on Equip Gauges and instead have the ability to gain an extra [Critical] Critical icon.png when the player's Drive reveals a Front Trigger Front symbol.png. To capitalize on this ability they can quickly superior call Ancient Dragons to fill the front row with more of them.

Tachikaze has the Accel Imaginary Gift, which allows them to have more rear-guards to arm and attack with.
