Ancient Dragon, Tyrannoquake
For f*ck's sake. 

So we continue to not review anything Kagero related with the Dinobots Week. And starting us of is Grimlock (I think) or Ancient Dragon, Tyrannoquake. He legions with Tyrannobite, and for all that, once per turn, when a Tyrannoquake or Tyrannobite is retired from the RG circle, he gains 5k +1 Critical. His normal skill is to retire one of your units when he attacks to give him 5k until end of the battle.
I wouldn't call it entirely convincing. Odds are you wouldn't want to sack away Tyrannoquakes for this skill since it's basically -1 to achieve an Alfred Exiv for the turn. So it's basically Tyrannobite if one wants to be efficient, to turn it into effectively a CB1 for 5k and a crit. Not being restricted to being Late Game is nice, certainly, but like several Persona-based Legion units it's not a skill to rely on owing to low odds of you spamming it.
It's rather sad that Tachikaze is moving away from its hybrid defense/offense strategy (L loved Dragon Egg and Blightops and all the classics) because in comparison it's just winmore and largely unnecessary.


Ancient Dragon, Tyrannoquake
Hey, everyone.  ...I thought we were doing Kagero, I swear that's what was going to get scheduled.  Oi vey.
Anyway, looks like we're doing, instead, Ancient Dragons and we're starting with one of the better Legions Period, Tyrannoquake.
Insert lore of a Tachikaze that lived long ago and is just as powerful as any Dragonic Overlord and hates the black rings that are attempting to destroy Cray.
I'm guessing this guy's from the alternate timeline as well, seeing as how Link Joker in the original timeline were all defeated.
Anyway, the non-legion skill of Tyrannoquake lets him eat a rear guard and get +5000 power for the turn.  If he happens to eat another Tyrannoquake or Tyrannobite (if in Legion), he gets an extra 5000 and +1 critical.
Normally this is the point where Saikyo or myself goes "Vanguards that gain crits suck" and call it a day, but this...  This is pretty good, seeing as it fuels all the Tachikaze effects, especially with Tyrannobite, seeing as that gets to CB1 when eaten and gets to return to the field, hungry and ready for more.
So, a 30,000 power, 2 crit vanguard (without boosting), every turn?  ...Ouchies.  Very ouchies.
Solid Legion is very solid.  And, yes, add this to the exception list of Vanguards that gain crits suck.
