Nikke Rupee guide: best teams and equipment

Nikke Rupee in Goddess of Victory Nikke

Nikke Rupee loves shopping, but beneath the glitz and glam, she’s quite a capable warrior. As part of the Talentum trio, she and her fellow squadmates keep the economy flourishing with their many businesses. This burst II Iron-type attacker is both a good buffer and destroyer of enemies. Like her fashionable closet, we’ve got the best Nikke tips for you to accessorize her powers.

Is Rupee good in Goddess of Victory: Nikke?

Rupee stands out from other Burst II units she is more DPS than support-based, so if you already have a very strong supporter such as Rapunzel or Red Hood, put her in your team as additional Nikke Rupee attack power. Her buffing specialty is boosting that of Iron-type allies, so if you have units such as Maxwell, Liter, Laplace, Sugar, or Snow White, they can go really well together.

She can boost units of all types with her burst move as well. When it comes to her own buffing abilities, Rupee is good at taking care of herself thanks to being able to stack her attack boosts. You can use her in boss fights thanks to being able to do core damage and in anything else thanks to how universal she is as a DPS.

While Nikke Rupee is very strong, using Rupee poses a risk because she is a burst II with very little ways to defend herself. Normally, characters like Centi are used as the burst II because they can defend themselves and the team. If Rupee dies in a fight, you’re stuck being able to use your burst chain unless you happen to be using a second burst II character. Because of that, you need to pair her with a healer that can keep her alive or revive her or a character that can be used in emergencies.

How to play Rupee in Goddess of Victory: Nikke?

If you have already gotten Nikke Rupee but not a good burst III DPS yet and find you are lacking manpower in battles, she is a great substitute who will not become irrelevant even as you get other units. When starting out in the game, you may find there are certain units that become obsolete as you get into harder content, such as the mass produced Nikkes. If you happen to get Rupee, she’s one to invest in from the beginning because of her high attack damage and will only get better over time due to future upgrades. This is also a great idea because Nikke Rupee doesn’t really rely on any specific units or team composition in order to perform well, making her easy to use for someone that doesn’t have a lot of SSR units yet. 

All The Skills of Rupee Goddess of Victory

Rupee is very vanilla in terms of being a DPS which makes her great for general story content, but that’s definitely not all she’s good for. Because she’s able to stack some of her skills, she can handle herself well in long fights. 

  • Rupee’s first skill Prize is the main reason to pair her with other Iron-type units, as she will boost all their critical power once Nikke Rupee meets a certain threshold of performed attacks. This move also boosts how much she can stack skills.
  • In her second skill Mileage, Rupee raises her own attack. This is one of the the stackable skills that only improves the longer you’re in a battle.
  • Single Payment is the shining star of Rupee’s power, as it boosts power for everyone on the team and depending on many rounds you’ve had and how much you’ve stacked, can deal a ton of damage to the enemy.
