With Monsters Unleashed only five weeks away from release, we’re honored to be able to announce a couple of spoilers today!
Both spoilers are from Kid Kaiju’s monster notebook and were two of the five monsters used to defeat the Leviathon Mother. Last week, Upper Deck spoiled the Main Character Kid Kaiju (below), and both Mekara and Hi-Vo grant bonuses to his LV2 side.
First up is Hi-Vo, the electrical based monster who is our first 2drop Lethal supporting character! Lethal and Range is always a great combo, and Hi-Vo can really crank up the damage by using High Voltage for a nice, big boost. It seems only fitting, given his electrical based powers, that High Voltage would be used to deliver quite the blast to his enemies.
Kid Kaiju’s Level Up ability requires Monsters in various locations of the game, and Hi-Vo being a 2drop with one health means he’s easily capable of meeting multiple requirements (front row, back row, or KO). If he is one of the monsters used to level Kid, you’ll gain the Lethal keyword on your MC!
In terms of pure strength, Hi-Vo seems like a solid inclusion even outside of Kid Kaiju lists, given his Lethal keyword. If you can keep him protected for a couple turns, he’s sure to help clear a path through multiple supporting characters.
Our other spoiler for the day is Mekara, another monster that benefits Kid Kaiju’s LV2. Mekara’s weapon, Shatter Sword, was drawn by Kid Kaiju and a bigger version of the weapon is used by Smasher (the monster formed by all five monsters and Kid). Mekara is our third supporting character with Monstrous and also has the highest defense of the three. The Shatter Sword ability is guaranteed to make her a threat, given that she can pay a green to slice right through her attackers!
Similar to Hi-Vo, Mekara will grant Kid Kaiju LV2 MC her printed keyword of Monstrous, making his LV2 that much tougher to deal with. She might be a bit slow if you’re trying to level Kid as fast as possible, but she’s a solid 5drop all around.
Looking outside of Monster Unleashed builds, Mekara could be a lot of fun when equipped with a Power Loader from the Aliens set.
