Benevolent Goddess of the Universe, Benzaiten is a god from Monster Strike. This card is a grade 3 unit with 13,000 power. She is has two abilities with basic skills. She also has the mechanic of Persona Ride.

First Ability:

Benevolent Goddess of the Universe, Benzaiten restricts an opponent’s defensive options for her battle. Benevolent Goddess of the Universe, Benzaiten does not allow an opponent to active the Auto abilities of their cards. Therefore, an opponent is unable to activate the ability of a sentinel. He or she cannot negate an attack from Benevolent Goddess of the Universe, Benzaiten on this turn.

In addition, Awakened Savior, Miroku is an excellent rear-guard in the same column with Benevolent Goddess of the Universe, Benzaiten. This rear-guard provides a strong boost and elevates your vanguard’s power. Awakened Savior, Miroku provides a boost of 13,000 power and increases Benevolent Goddess of the Universe, Benzaiten’s power with a Persona Ride to 36,000.

Second Ability:

Benevolent Goddess of the Universe, Benzaiten also strengthens all rear-guards in your front row. Her second ability adds 10,000 power to your rear-guards in the front row if her attack hits the opponent. She adds a total of 20,000 power to the field.

Valkyrie of the Unsealed Holy Shield, Athena has strong synergy with this ability. Valkyrie of the Unsealed Holy Shield, Athena gains 10,000 power when you boost her and have a grade 3 unit. The grade 3 unit is Benevolent Goddess of the Universe, Benzaiten. Therefore, Valkyrie of the Unsealed Holy Shield, Athena gains 10,000 power from her ability and 10,000 power from  Benevolent Goddess of the Universe, Benzaiten. Valkyrie of the Unsealed Holy Shield, Athena has over 33,000 power with a boost from a rear-guard.

However, an opponent can prevent this effect’s activation if they successfully block Benevolent Goddess of the Universe, Benzaiten in battle. This requirement is a major weakness for the second ability. This ability only activates its skill if the attack hits the opponent. You will not gain the additional power if the attack is unsuccessful.
