Acquired: Episode 2: THE BATTLE FOR IGA Equipment: Swords, Armor Skills: + Defender Mode - Increases 1 ally's defense power (8 SP) + Weakling Mode - Reduce 1 enemy's attack power (8 SP)
Hikoichi has a very strong attack and his HP and defense make him a great tank character. Unfortunately, his agility and movement suffer as a result. Hikoichi is probably best used for his excellent Defender Mode skill, which raises a party member's defense in battle. This special ability is very useful in tough fights against hard-hitting enemies.
Weakling Mode, which reduces an enemy's attack power, is also useful, although not on the same level as Defender Mode because enemies are capable of dodging it.
