His Elemental Burst, Juuga: Forward Unto Victory, deals AOE Geo damage and creates a field that follows the active character. Like his Elemental Skill, it provides buffs to the character based on how many Geo characters your party has. It also generates 1 Crystal Collapse every 1.5s that deals AOE Geo damage to 1 opponent inside the skill’s AOE and pulls 1 elemental shard in the skill’s AOE to your active character’s position every 1.5s.
If a General’s War Banner created by Gorou currently exists on the field when this ability is used, it will be destroyed. While this skill is active, Inuzaka All-Round Defense cannot create a General’s War Banner.
