Eugene Goubaku Senpuuga

Eugene using Goubaku Senpuuga.

Eugene Gallardo (ユージーン・ガラルド, Yūjīn Gararudo) is one of the playable characters in Tales of Rebirth. Eugene was once a respected Gajuma (Beast Man) and a high ranking commander of his country's army until he was framed in killing Annie Barrs' father and was exiled from his home town together with his foster son, Mao.

Eugene battles enemies with his long spear and is gifted with the Force of Steel which grants him enourmous physical strength. Most of his attacks have a wide area of effect and are themed to both wind/lightning and earth elements. He can also combine his Force with other Tales of Rebirth characters and perform joint attacks called Fusionic Force Finalities which are the equivalent of Mystic Artes in his original game. Eugene is classified as a power house character with average agility.

Eugene is fairly easy to use and is recommended to beginners and veterans alike.

General Tips & UsageEdit

  • Eugene is all about spacing. He has the longest attack range in the game, hands down. Moves like his Melee Attack A, Aerial Attack C, and Shunjinsou can outspace every other character in the game. With moves like Goubaku Jinsoushou and Ren Koutaisou, Eugene can apply adequate offensive pressure as well. If he is under pressure, Ren Koutaisou and Messhousou can get him out. Throw in solid anti-airs in Melee Attack C and Tenraisou, and it can be very frustrating to land a hit on Eugene.
  • Eugene's biggest weaknesses include his mobility and damage output. His damage output isn't bad per se, but he can't deal an incredibly damaging combo when the stakes are getting high, unlike most of the other fighters. His mobility is fairly weak as well. Thankfully he doesn't need it most of the time, but if he's getting kept out by characters like Suzu Fujibayashi and Collet Brunel, then it can be an issue.
  • Eugene's HP, attack power and dash lenth are above average; his move speed, defense against guard break and jump height are somewhat average and his back step is below average.
  • Eugene receives 30% more damage from Wind Elemental attacks and 30% less damage from Earth Elemental attacks. (Please refer to this page for more information on ACS Elements).
  • Eugene can perform all of the basic movements in ACS except for High Jump.
    • Eugene's Double Jump almost reaches the top of the screen.
    • Eugene can chain his forward air dash with another forward air dash or a backward air dash.
  • Eugene has two basic melee attacks (A & B) and one riser attack (C).
    • Unlike other characters, Eugene cannot tap ↑ after his riser attack to perform a riser jump.
  • Eugene has two basic aerial attacks (A/B & C).
    • His C aerial attack has a wide area of effect and can disable enemies.
  • During Overlimit Lv2 status, Eugene is harder to stagger (Unmarked Penetrate Status) for until Overlimit status expires.
  • His chain order consists of:
    • Melee > Base > Arcane > Mystic

      • Note 6: This part is a little tricky, you have to use Shouha Rekkousen just before the enemy lands on the ground. The enemy's feet must be at the same level as Eugene's body. If the enemy is too high in mid-air or if the enemy touches the ground, Overlimit Lv1 will not connect after using Shouha Rekkousen. This is the hardest part of the combo.
