Riberts

The Hairbuster Riberts is a playable unit in Metal Slug Attack. Parts can be obtained through the Rare/Extra Shops, Event Cranks, and level up sales.

It has low health for an air unit of its cost, but makes up for it with powerful attacks. Should an enemy unit go past the Hairbuster Riberts, it will fly out of the map.

The Hairbuster Riberts is best known for its suicide attack, which is unlocked when MSA Skill small + 2 is unlocked. Compared other aerial suicide units (Dai-Manji, The Keesi II and Caroline's Shooting Ray), the Hairbuster Riberts' suicide attack has very high accuracy.

The Keesi II and Dai-Manji are good aerial suicide units, but have issues that the Hairbuster Riberts does not have. Both of these will require their special to be used and have to be destroyed on top of enemies, as they will simply fall down and explode on enemies that are below them. Units like Cleopatra can easily destroy them before they get the chance to do so, which results in a waste of AP. The Shooting Ray used by Caroline shares the gliding property of the Hairbuster Riberts, but does not cover as far and has a poor area of effect.

The Hairbuster Riberts' suicide attack combines the high damage of the Keesi II and Dai-Manji and the Shooting Ray's gliding properties together, resulting in a reliable aerial suicide unit that can deal massive damage. It is effective against long range units, as the explosion it generates either kills or severely wounds them.

When placed in a deck with the R-Shobu and Hi-Do, they form the "Morden's Fleet" team, increasing their health by 10%.
