Elysion is a unit original to Metal Slug Attack. Parts can be obtained through her Box Crank.
A cursed pirate, Elysion uses the Monoeyes' curse against them. As her normal attack, she uses her tentacle arm to summon 12 jellyfish at her enemies. These jellyfish home in on the nearest target, but move rather slowly.
As her special, she summons a single kraken at her enemies. She can summon two additional krakens with 4. These krakens can cover the whole map, but will stop upon running into an enemy ground unit or blocker. They are also capable of absorbing physical projectiles such as bullets without harm.
Initially, Elysion seems lackluster given her attacks' low damage output. This is true for her standard attack, but not for her special when invested, as each kraken deals extremely rapid damage when hitting an enemy. Elysion lacks incendiary resistance, so she should avoid units like the Metal Rear EX or Dragon Nosuke+, which has a powerful incendiary attack.
The best counters against Elysion are to use blockers. A list of blockers from best to worst are as follows (assume Elysion has unlocked skill 4, which means three krakens):
|Dark Monoeye||With protection, monoliths last long enough to completely block special. Unfortunately, it cannot stop Elysion if she is enhanced by Rumi or Sisilia.|
|Jade John||Only if enhanced - will not work otherwise. Requires timing in advance.|
|Esther||Grandee lasts long enough to block special, though can require timing.|
|Lovely Mummy||Requires precise timing, or a kraken will slip by.|
|Midori||Only if enhanced - will not work otherwise. Requires precise timing due to how "TETSUJIN KUN" works, as the short retreat it performs can cause a kraken to slip by.|
|Everlasting Summer Abigail||Laser reflectors can block krakens; however, it is removed in the process - requires stacks. Also requires good timing or reflectors will ignore krakens.|
|Red Goblin||Only if enhanced - will not work otherwise. Requires precise timing and protection due to his low health.|
|50||52500||57750||63525||69877||76865||* HP might be increased by skills / items or buffs|
- If 4 has not been unlocked yet, Elysion will yell "Kraken" at the end of the attack. If 4 has been unlocked, she will yell "Burn them!" instead.
