The Hunter Games allow the Frozn to test the abilities and ingenuity of the younger generation in order to gauge their true worth. So to complete the apprenticeship of her young pupil, Mahimatah ordered young Ruru to set out on a pilgrimage to the Great North and only return when she was ready. Listening to the voices of the frozen cliff-faces led the young woman to an abandoned wolf-cub and an injured eagle, who she then decided to take under her wing. Now after five years of living and travelling with her new companions, Ruru feels sufficiently prepared to finally take on champion Aaron in the next Hunter Games.

Just as they were leading a peaceful life at the top of Mount Glatz, the Frozn were struck down by a strange malevolence. Pollution coming from Clint City caused a heat wave that destroyed their ecosystem and upset their lifestyle: a delicate symbiosis of men of the mountains and techno-loving yetis. So, led by the glacial Kalindra, the Frozn are marching towards the city to cast a chilling effect on the inhabitants of Clint City...

Dear UR,


Friday 22/08/2014, 13:32

First "real" DR for Frozn (Mamma Yeti don't count, as her DR is a only -1 and is coupled with power reduction), Ruru is quite the scary card.

7/6 base stats are nice, and should her bonus be activated, she becomes a 9/8. As of her release, Ruru has the highest base stat total for 4*s in Frozn. That isn't even the best part though.

UR has beat around the bush for two years now about giving the Frozn a DR, because of the possible over-synergy between a DR and their bonus. For balancing reasons, I think that's fair on their part. They did give us Tiwi right off the bat, did give up a 5* who's ability had overwhelming synergy with the clan's bonus (too overwhelming in fact), and did eventually give us Nanny Yeti, though most everyone seemed to ignore the fact that she is still a DR is name.

But Ruru is different. Ruru doesn't have a bad situational ability. While it's preferable to the owner that a card doesn't have a situational ability at all (Derp), Revenge and Reprisal are generally seen as okay, or more controllable. Ruru has the combination of both in her ability and bonus, and her ability is dang scary. -4 opp damage min 2? That's good. Real good.

Trying to sink some damage in against those Frozn? Your turn first? Oops, you had trouble getting much in with Ruru blocking a good load of it. Enjoy her Frozn buddies dealing hefty damage back.
What's that? You won the last round? Awesome, now Ruru is more dangerous, and you still really don't want to pill too much against her in most situations. Of course, situational circumstances are situational. But should you fall into a certain situation (you can tell I need to work on expanding my vocabulary), Ruru can become a serious game changer.

Best of all, as her base stats are tied for the highest for Frozn cards, she can be used in T2 to bring out the pain of the real nasty hitters for the Frozn.

Imminent ban? Maybe. I'm rather surprised UR decided to release a real DR for the Frozn, more so when you consider how powerful she is, and how awesome her DR ability is. UR may have over-compensated however, and Ruru could definitely be in the mix for weekly bans if she proves to help lift up the Frozn in ELO.

Oh, one last thing. That 1* art? Can we just keep it there and forget about her other art levels? Because that 1* art deserves Miss Clint City 2014 smiley

Please forgive me for my grievous mistake in my previous comment.
I was under the impression that Ruru had Reprisal as her situational ability. Why? I have no idea. I guess when seeing the Revenge bonus, my brain locked in that her ability was Reprisal based.
Of course, that is not the case, as Ruru is a Courage situational card. That does change things significantly, as Courage is less preferable than Reprisal, and part of my previous comment is now irrelevant.
Once again, sorry for my mistake. Ruru is still a very good card, is still a great addition to the Frozn, and her 1* art still deserves Miss Clint City 2014.

@Wildog, uh, this has nothing to do with Rue. Hunter Games is a throwaway reference, and how very dare you because it's the best that young adult fiction has had to offer in recent times. I mean I'll take anything over Twilight, but anyway, if you want a direct reference, check out Keitha. Can't get more obvious than "La Chica de Fuego!"

Ruru here is based on Nakoruru from the Samurai Shodown series of fighting games (and later Capcom vs. SNK). Amazing mix-up character, lightning fast with vicious combos and mind games. Her 1* outfit really resembles what Nakoruru wears in the game, but those animals in the artwork really nail it. Depending on which game we're talking about, she fights with her pet eagle, pet wolf, or both, as her moves and gameplay heavily involve using them in battle. Bonus points, Nakoruru has a little sister named Rimururu who uses ice magic to fight, which cements the Frozn connection. So Nako + Rimu = Ruru. Again, nothing to do with the actual Hunger Games, but still: May the odds be ever in your favor!

It's Nakoruru! I have a favorite Frozn character now.

This deck is a little too OP....but winning easy can be fun too Type 2 Annihilation(OP) rate green plz

Saturday 19/03/2016, 18:45

4 stars
Power 7
Damage 6
Tat alone makes her awesome for Frozn clan. She can be 9/8 on Revenge.
But no, with Courage she is also a -4 Damage DR min 2.
So to sum things up, without SOA or SOB against her, having Revenge and Courage, she is a 9/8 card with -4 Opp Damage min 2
VS SOB she is a 7/6 and having Courage she is also a DR
VS SOA she is a a 7/6 and on Renvege she becomes a 9/8.
For 4 stars.
So she takes a 10/10 from me.

hunter games, hunger games? ruru, rue from the hunger games?
(just to say I hugely dislike the hunger games its just that I saw it on a plane recently and was surprised that my theory was not stated in the comments, any who)

if you voted her for ELO ban, you just voted for Frozn's mono deck doom

Ok, since there is no review for this card, I will do it with Yoshi's reviews

A dr for frozn, it's amazing
Those stats are below average for a 5 star, but for a 4 star they are amazing. It even has the same attack and damage as rad, which people say is the best frozn card other than kalindra cr
The synergy with the bonus and ability of this clan
The unpredictability. If she has revenge and courage(unlikely, but still) You need to decide, do I take the 8 damage, or beat it and do 2 damage.
And the bonus, which is for every frozn card
6 damage is great for a 4 star, with the 2hkos

Ability is situational
Stop opp ability and/or bonus is a struggle
dr's, which is a problem for many cards

Ruru is the best 4 star for frozn other than maybe Rahanpah, but she has damage reduction which this clan needed, and has amazing stats. The only reason it isn't banned is because of the situational problem(Or ur got smart and now knows that we decide usually who is banned.) If you have the money, it is a staple for any frozn deck.

I hate this card with a passion :'( the mind games are real.

Saturday 27/02/2016, 01:26

Oh, look, it's a mash-up of Nakoruru and Rimiruru from Samurai Showdown! smiley

Clint City, day.
