Chinese Celestial Pantheon Analysis

Please refer to the Master List for directory to the other pantheons and their analysis.

Take a look at my Popular Leaders and their Full Sub List post for inspiration on team building ideas. If contemplating on purchasing a MP Dragon, please check out my Monster Point Dragon Purchasing Check-list Guide.

Keep in mind all of the following monsters qualify for Skill Inheritance so do not be too hasty in selling dupes.

The Chinese Celestials are one of the most loved and oldest pantheons. Perhaps it is because they put the waifu in Puzzle and Waifus or that they were the first full board changer released. Regardless, GungHo has treated them well with a powerful awoken evolution that open up new uses and further augments their power. They generally make stellar mono colour subs and even Awoken Sakuya Sakuya who has always been a high end lead now can be used as a sub for her bind clearing active. Overall a pretty and powerful pantheon.

Chinese Celestials

 Awoken Leilan
Awoken Leilan
Physical / Attacker
Enhnaced Fire Orb
 Enhnaced Fire Orb Skill Lock Resist
Fire Row Skill Boost Fire Row
Skill Boost Time Extend
All  Arrow Fire Green Light + haste
9 turn CD
Leilan has legs to die for along with being a mono red powerhouse with a healthy mixture of offensive and utility based awakenings. She can also be effectively comboed with other orb changers to create fire heavy boards. Furthermore, with the release of Ultimate Krishna 3068, Leilan may have found a new home as she fits beautifully on his team. In addition, you also have Reincarnated Shiva 3241 on the horizon so there is something to look forward to. Just remember to pair her with Yamato Bankai Yamato for 2/3 fire boards.  Lastly, Leilan can form a system on Ilm Ilm teams or be used as an inherit when their new evolution is released.

As a leader, Leilan forms a 16x ATK team with 51% damage reduction from Fire, Wood, and Light enemies. Has situational uses and does shine bright in those types of dungeons.

 Awoken Karin

Dragon / Attacker

 Poison resist Skill Lock Resist
Water Row Water Row Skill Boost
Skill Boost Time Extend
All  Arrow Water Green Dark + haste
9 turn CD
I have a borderline irrational love for Karin and probably stems from my favourite colour being blue, dragons, and a pretty girl all rolled into amazing one monster. Fanboying aside, Karin is most at home on the various mono-blue powerhouse leads such as Blue Sonia Blue Sonia, Awoken I&I I&I / Ryune Ryune, Sarasvati 3069, and You Yu You Yu. Karin’s active, while powerful, is somewhat overshadowed by other water full board changers as she does not generate hearts and most likely needs to be used in conjunction with another orb changer to ensure sufficient water rows. Combo synergy includes Sitri 2993, Hermes A Hermes, and Hatsume Hatsume.

Karin may end up being used more as an assistant for mono dark and wood teams as she has wonderful synergy with Pandora Awoken Pandora.

As a leader, Karin forms a 16x ATK team with 51% damage reduction from Water, Wood, and Dark enemies. Has situational uses, but she is mostly used as a sub.

 Awoken Meimei
Physical / Attacker
Enhanced Wood Orb
 Enhanced Wood Orb TPA
Skill Lock Resist TPA Skill Boost
Skill Boost Time Extend
All  Arrow Green Light Dark + haste
9 turn CD
Meimei was once the primary wood board changer, but has begun to be overshadowed by Verdandi Verd and Sylvie Sylvie as she does not generate heart orbs. However, Meimei can still be utilized on the new Awoken Kushinadahime 2983 or Ace Bastet Cross Bastet teams for both the board changer and dual TPA. Even though both of these teams require as many combos as possible, it is rare to have a perfect distribution of wood orbs and gaining an extra kick of damage can be advantageous.

With all that being said, Meimei is the perfect inherit on dark teams that run Pandora Awoken Pandora as you are able to form a 2/3 dark, 1/3 heart board.

As a leader, Meimei forms a 16x ATK team with 51% damage reduction from Wood, Light, and Dark enemies.

 Awoken Sakuya
Dragon / Healer
Bind Clear awakening
 Blind Resist Jammer Resist
Skill Lock Resist TPA Time Extend
Bind Immune Bind Immune Skill Boost
20% Gravity + 3 turn bind clear
10 turn CD
Sakuya has gone through a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs over the course of her PAD career. She was once a strong leader at her debut with her awoken form. Sadly, the rate of powercreep has been unkind and now she is mostly used as either a sub or offensive bind clear inherit. This does not mean she is a weak leader as 100x is still formidible, but her lack of consistency along with no defensive multipliers hinder her overall performance.

Despite the lower leadership potential, Awoken Sakuya has gained value as a sub on a variety of teams as her bind clear comes with a 20% gravity component. This is unique in the realm of bind clears as you are able to use it offensively to either chunk down a dangerous boss or to help bypass resolve. One of her best homes is on Sherias Roots Sherias Roots as her Dragon typing and water coverage help alleviate team building constraints.

   Awoken Haku
God / Healer
Dark Orb Enhance
 Dark Orb Enhance blue + orb
TPA Skill Lock Resist TPA
Skill Boost Time Extend
All  Arrow Fire Water Dark + haste
9 turn CD
Awoken Haku was once a critical dark sub to own due to her utility and active. Thankfully, other options have opened up, but should not diminish her value. Furthermore, her exceptionally high base recovery dramatically increases your healing potential on many dark teams. Even without any dark row awakenings, Haku can still warrant a slot on your Awoken Archdemon Lucifer team due to her utility and explosive combo potential with Akechi Akechi . Haku can also find a home on Yomi Dragon Yomi Dragon , Awoken Yomi Awoken Yomi , and Awoken Anubis Awoken Anubis teams.

However, her D/D evolution DD Haku has the devil typing and can be successfully used on Awoken Pandora Awoken Pandora and now Gremory Gremory in conjunction with Akechi for explosive damage.

As a leader, Haku forms a 16x ATK team with 51% damage reduction from Fire, Water, and Dark enemies. Has situational uses, but is usually used as a sub.
