"Go on... keep mocking me, you're incapable of doing anything else!" - Kars (Kāzu, カーズ)
Kars is arguably one of the fastest Abilities in-game, as it has a variety of stun moves and a powerful barrage rush. The spec also has a long-range projectile move, making it viable in normal ranged combat if this spec is utilized correctly. It is also one of the rarest spec among the game.
In order to get this ability, you must use a Stone Mask while having the Vampire Spec. However, there is only a 1/18 (5.5%) chance of obtaining it. Kars can also be obtained by using a Bizarre Arrow with a random chance of obtaining it.
Kars is technically referred to as the pair of grey pillars that go on both the user's arms, each having a blade on their respective sides. There are also circle-shaped indentations on the front of both blocks. When the Determination ability is used, there will be a bright white effect that would light up on the front of the blade.
The blades themselves are also reflective and are curved back towards the user, similar to a sickle. As for its appearance in Roblox, this spec will not appear correctly on newer default avatars, as it was intended to fit on older default Roblox Avatars, more specifically the blocky-styled avatars.
The spec also doesn’t include blades on the user's legs, unlike in the anime. The spec also has a color scheme of mostly black, with the blocks on the hands and the blades having a color of black and grey.
|Passive||All attacks against Vampires deal 25% more damage and your skin is immune to Hamon, thus all Hamon attacks deal 25% less damage.|
|Makes your blade slice through. Deals a significant amount of damage.|
|Your determination drives you to fight harder. You will temporarily deal 1.15x more damage for each of your damage-dealing moves, while you get increased speed and increased jump height for a short period of time.|
|The user uses their bone blades to perform a barrage of 80 slashes, dealing a significant amount of damage.|
|The player does an extremely fast punch that deals great damage, while knocking back the opponent.|
|Grab an opponent with both hands and drain their blood, healing you while dealing good damage. While this move is active, the target is immobilised (Does not heal if opponent is guarding, but does immobilise).|
|Do an upwards kick dealing great damage. Stun locks the opponent for a short while, but deals no knockback.|
|Spin forward with a small distance while simultaneously slashing anything in the user's way, dealing superior damage and significant knockback to anything this move hits. You are unable to be ragdolled while this move is active, up until this move ends.|
|The user slashes their blade, and an arc-shaped projectile flies out, dealing great damage on contact. This move can sometimes hit an opponent multiple times.|
|The user dashes forward with great speed. You are unable to be ragdolled while this move is active, up until this move ends. This dash has the lowest cooldown out of Vampire and Santana.|
General Combat Knowledge:
Sporting amazing maneuverability, above-average health, and insane damage output, Kars is an extremely deadly Spec. Combined with its blood suck enables Kars users to fight toe-to-toe against even the toughest of stands, including Gold Experience Requiem and OH stands. Kars also has the nice added advantage of taking 25% less damage from Hamon, while dealing 25% more damage against any vampiric abilities (Vampiric The World, Vampire, Shadow The World).
With a lot of moves at your hand, you are set for any PVP scenario. Kars has a Blood Suck move (T), which damages the opponent while restoring 1/8 of the user's health, so don't be afraid to rush your opponents head-on. Determination (Q) allows users to run faster, jump higher, and strike harder temporarily. A full-length Light Blade Rush (E) allows users to deal with a staggering 400 Damage. Superhuman Punch (R) allows users to knock away their opponents, simultaneously rag-dolling them as well. Surprise Kick (H) stuns the opponent, allowing for good combo opportunities. If your opponent tries to flee on low health or is simply out of reach, Projectile Slash (J) allows you to finish them off. Light Blade Dash (F) does the most damage, while also knocking opponents back and rag-dolling them. There is a chance that this move (F) can double-hit someone if you perform the move at the right distance and timing.
The moves Pillar Man Dash (V) and Pillar Man Jump (Z) allow you to quickly gain on your opponent or run away if you need too. Combined with the ability to roll (C), allows users to dodge and weave their way towards their opponent, avoiding damage from ranged attacks.
Kars has a very small effective range, with all but one of his move-sets being melee attacks. In general, you should try and play aggressively; rushing your opponents, leaving them no time to break the distance between you. Remember to use (Q) whenever you can, as it gives you a quite significant boost to your stats, and keep yourself healed with your (T).
On top of dealing damage while healing you, (T) allows you to immobilize your opponent for a short duration while drawing them close to you. After this brief period, before your opponent has time to react, you are able to pull off some impressive combos.
Kars evidently lacks ranged moves. However, your speed and maneuverability makes up for this, allowing you to constantly pursue your opponents. Unless you're going against a Made in Heaven during time acceleration, you will sure to be able to keep up.
Kars is a speedy spec so use that to your advantage. Using dash + light blade spin is a surefire way to screw your opponent up.
Note: Enabling Q allows moves to be more powerful due to the damage boost, while also making it easier to catch up to opponents due to the speed boost.
