Disgaea 6 – Piyori Character Guide

Disgaea 6 has over 20 playable classes and a comparable number of unique and named characters – especially once you start rolling in DLC and cameo appearances. There’s a lot to do, and knowing where to start can be pretty darn hard. After all, how do you know who does what?

The main cast is always a good bet as it is designed to be somewhat outdated. Piyori is no different, and in fact, she is one of the best. She’s not a jack-of-all-trades, she’s a specialist, and very few characters can compare to her when she’s in her element. Let’s see why.

Who is Piyori?

Piyori is the last surviving/acting/role-playing Prism Ranger. The Prism Rangers are the Disgaea version of the Power Rangers, and they’ve appeared in every game since the original. The thing is, they’re always played for laughs, and they’re always terrible. Not in Disgaea 6.

Piyori isn’t just a fantastic character in the game, but narratively, her struggle to uphold virtues she doesn’t understand is endearing, comical, and interesting. It’s hard not to love her when she forces the entire cast to become Prism Rangers, with Prism Pup and Prism Bitch being the highlights.

Why use Piyori?

Piyori is a monstrously powerful single target nuker. His ability to assassinate people in single combat is second only to Zed, and even then Piyori gives him his money’s worth. This makes Piyori a dangerous duelist and phenomenal boss killer.

Piyori will be the go-to whenever you’re fighting Hidden Bosses, Super Bosses, and, well, any bosses. She’s just so good.

What weapon does Piyori use?

Piyori has several weapons that she is good with, but only a few shine in her hands. His skills are:

Armed Mastery
Fist B
Sword A
Spear VS
Bow B
Gun A
Chopped VS
Scope D

Due to his proficiency, sword or pistol are the ideal choices. Of the two, we recommend using swords because all of Piyori’s skills scale with ATK – a stat that guns don’t use at all. You will significantly hurt your damage while using a pistol.

Piyori’s Unique Ailments

Piyori has two unique ailments, and they are:

The evil Explanation
heroic virtue For 1% HP lost, increases damage dealt by 2%
Heroic Insight Increases critical rate against higher level enemies by 30%

Heroic Virtue is fantastic because you can almost triple your damage at “full strength”. That’s almost as high as Zed and his damage bonus, which instantly skyrockets Piyori into the upper echelons of characters. You can use AOE attacks to damage Piyori to increase her damage and then fully heal her after her attack. It works wonderfully.

Heroic Insight is less useful than Heroic Virtue, but given that most bosses should outrun you (especially in the late game), that extra crit rate can go a long way, and 30% is nothing to scoff at. More damage is always a good thing.

Piyori’s Unique Attacks

Piyori’s attacks are great, but there’s one that shines above all and that’s why you pick it up in the first place.

Skill Rank Scaling Element Interval AOE
Prism Punisher D CTA None 0 N / A
Prism Accelerator Mi+ CTA None 0 Line
Prism Dynamite B CTA None 0 Horizontal line
Prism tip SS CTA None 0 N / A

How to use Piyori

Piyori is easy to use. She’s great at almost every mission thanks to her skills, but shines when slapping bosses. The best way to use it is to use Prism End over and over again. Its damage is incredibly good, and if you play with Piyori’s Evilities, its potential will skyrocket.

Have Piyori attack last in any attack order, and have your allies use an AOE attack against her and the boss (make sure you don’t accidentally kill her…). Then use Prism End to deal as much damage as possible and end your turn with a Cleric or Sea Angel healing her to full HP. Rinse and repeat until you win.

Piyori also has a few AOE attacks, which makes her decent against groups of enemies, but due to their (line-based) nature, she can struggle to get the most out of them. That, and their damage scaling isn’t the best. Stick to a single target for the most part.
