Kobalth and his brother Onyx were chosen from a very young age to become Lehrg’s bodyguards. While the summoner was learning how to open time passages, they were learning how to open potential enemies in two and they’ve quickly became extremely adept at it.

In a distant future, a prophet revealed to the menacing Dregn that an alliance of the descendants of the Clint City Clans would bring about the downfall of his evil empire and an end to his reign of terror. To put a stop to this defeat, Dregn has sent his best fighters to eradicate the problem at its source, that is 1000 years earlier, at a time when the clans are at their most divided.

Kobalth - 6/4 with SoB (ability) and Defeat: Recover 2 pills out of 3 (bonus)

- decent damage of 4 (6 with fury). Can't complain.
- SoB is always a handy ability. A rarer ability as well. SoB lets Kobalth fight back against clans like All Stars, Rescue, Montana, and Bangers.
- SoB lets Kobalth block damag from La Junta, Fang Pi, or poison from Freaks.
- SoB lets Kobalth actually get through the Pussycat wall, which ortex normally has trouble doing at a decent amount of pills.
- But probably he most important feature is that SoB ability lets Kobalth fight Piranas and Nightmare, yet keep the Defeat bonus in check. And since SoB is a rarer ability, Kobalth usually doesn't have to worry about other SoB abilities.

- However, while 6 power isn't horrible, it isn't the best thing ever.

Overall: 7/10. Kobalth and his brother have similar functions but at different extremities. Onyx and Kobalth can both be used to block damage, pierce DR, stop poison, or combat specific fighters. However, they have different extremes. Onyx can effectively stop an incoming Sylth or Sigma attack, Kobalth can't. Kobalth can stop the Freaks poison, Onyx can not. Against most Fang Pi and La Junta, Onyx blocks 0 damage. Kolbalth blocks 2. Onyx blocks 3 damage against Lennox. Kolbath actually has a shot at beating the beast. Kolbath can get defeat out against Nightmares. Onyx can fight a good number of them on. A the end, it is player opinion regarding which to use (if either), but Kobalth is no better or worse then his brother. It all depends on the situation they are given.

Lovhak's War Journal

Entry #14

October 22, 2010

Subject: Kobalth

Kobalth, the older of the twin duo, varies from his brother in just a few ways. Like, Kobalth loves getting drenched in the blood of those he slays, by ripping and maiming his prey past death. Quiet is Onyx, while Kobalth is brash, loud, boastful, and quite annoying. He always makes himself heard, whether in battle or not. This hurts if we are trying to neutralize an enemy while trying to keep hidden. I would say Kobalth is a danger to the clan, if it wasn't for his incredible combat skills.
Another interesting thing about Kobalth: While Onyx doesn't trust anyone, Kobalth can't really BE trusted by anyone. He rarely keeps a promise, or anything else, as he is apathetic to pretty much anything outside himself and his brother.
Now, when Onyx is involved, Kobalth can keep a promise, and will always put his brother before hiself. I suppose it has something to do with Kobalth being the older sibiling.
Lovhak, Demoted Sergeant of the Vortex Military.

Now I get it
Kobalth is Kratos from God Of War
Onyx is Deimos(Kratos' brother in God Of War) which helps his brother to carry Ares (Lehrg in this case learning to open Portals) off the battlefield during the Trojan War(In this case the war between Vortex and the other Clint City Clans).

The reason why Kobalth is more expensive is because he is rare, and his brother onyx is only common

i made deck 4 onyx 4 kobalth i went of to classic it turned out great works really well

Tuesday 05/04/2011, 01:06

it's really not that mind-blowing why kobalth costs more than onyx... see how kobalth has gold on top of his card and onyx has red? gold means rare and red means common. meaning there are more onyx cards than kobalth. because there are more, it isn't worth as much because more people have him.
