Rivol is certainly an interesting card. His gimmick revolves around having a Slash attack and a Stab attack. But while this sounds pretty good on paper, it's pretty iffy in execution. What's more, he's also saddled with some other goofy gimmicks like increasing his damage when his Card Cardinal is a multiple of 4 (which isn't something you can reasonably control). He also has a chance to increase your ATK/DEF, but the chances are quite low, even when boosted.

Unfortunately, Awakening doesn't do a whole lot to improve him despite his great Stat Boost. His Skill damage is boosted a bit, but the main issue with his Skill is that the Stab attack is treated like a Secondary attack; Skill Boosts will increase its damage, but Enhance Cards do nothing for it. Another issue is that his multipliers are pretty low; considering most 1x Attackers have multipliers around 2.2x to 2.7x, Rivol looks pretty bad in comparison. Additionally, he trades his boosted damage bonus to imbue his attacks with Fire...which is only really effective against Green enemies. In short, Rivol's not completely terrible, but compared to the numerous other Red Slash cards he's competing against (like Coyote and Nikita), he comes off as very lackluster.


DMG (Slash Attack) 2.00x
DMG (Stab Attack) 2.00x
  • Elem Mod is 1.75x
  • 50% chance to grant +2 ATK or DEF (Rolled per Stat; Both can't increase at the same time.)
  • Stab attack is still considered a Secondary attack (Can be boosted via Subs, but not via Enhance Cards)

Rivol finally gets his wish and becomes "War God Ares" (and looking like he can win a Disco Contest) and becomes an actual God card! Now his attacks are automatically Fire-imbued and can ignore Shields as well! That said, many of the same issues mentioned above still persist, though given Ares's ludicrous Attack stat, he's certainly on par with any 1x Attacker in the game.

Sub Skill

Rivol's Sub is not exactly the best. When your HP is below 35% and the Main Card's Skill activates, you execute an additional Stab and Slash attack. Given you have to be almost near-death for it to even activate, it's not terribly great and it's also not the best choice against Dungeon bosses. Pretty decent for Colosseum though.


Awakening removes the below 35% HP requirement, just making Rivol a straight-up extra Stab and Slash attack whenever your Attack Card's Skill activates. As mentioned before, you probably won't be using it in Dungeons, and even with Colosseum, you'd probably want more Skill Boosts than just extra attacks.

S. Awakened

Further Awakening to Ares makes great strides by now granting a powerful 35-40% Skill Boost to Slash Cards! Much like before, the extra Stab/Slash attacks remain, making Ares a fantastic Sub for any Slash Card!

Recommended Subcards


Apparently a battle deity of sorts. Was never a true God until Zeus blessed him and made him Ares, God of War (upon S.Awakening).
