Komainu was once a powerful mythical being revered by the villagers, but during times of peace, a war deity is easily forgotten.
Little by little, he spent more time in statue form, until he stopped transforming at all. Yet as we've witnessed time and time again, peace is an unstable concept in the Bamboo Valley.
Sure enough, the fire of conquest lit up again in the bellies of the Warlords. They're all looking for a competitive advantage against each other, and so Komainu rises again.
This sacred statue comes alive in battle and destroys your enemies' closest wall. Komainu then goes berserk targeting defenses and enrages nearby troops. Upgrade him to increase his power!
Komainu is now available in your village, simply head over to the Hero Plinth and swap out Rashomon. He has 10 levels currently available to upgrade for Onyx.
After your battle, the Lion will be on cooldown and Rashomon will automatically become available to use in the next battle. If you want to keep using Komainu continuously, you will have to heal him after every battle by tapping the heal button that appears in the shrine.
The Kami Tree Lion perks do not affect Komainu.
While Komainu is upgrading, Rashomon will automatically go into battle with you instead, even if you still have the lion selected. Make sure you manually switch to Rashomon in the Shrine if you also want to use him on defense though.
