Inuzaka All-Round Defense
Deals AoE Geo DMG and sets up a General's War Banner.
General's War Banner
Provides up to 3 buffs to active characters within the skill's AoE based on the number of Geo characters in the party at the time of casting:
• 1 Geo character: Adds "Standing Firm" - DEF Bonus.
• 2 Geo characters: Adds "Impregnable" - Increased resistance to interruption.
• 3 Geo characters: Adds "Crunch" - Geo DMG Bonus.
Gorou can deploy only 1 General's War Banner on the field at any one time. Characters can only benefit from 1 General's War Banner at a time. When a party member leaves the field, the active buff will last for 2s.
Hold
Adjust the location of the skill.
"Take up this formation and we'll be safe — I guarantee it!" As a general and a leader of troops, the last thing Gorou wants is to see is those who follow him getting hurt.

Juuga: Forward Unto Victory
Displaying his valor as a general, Gorou deals AoE Geo DMG and creates a field known as General's Glory to embolden his comrades.
General's Glory
This field has the following properties:
• Like the General's War Banner created by Inuzaka All-Round Defense, provides buffs to active characters within the skill's AoE based on the number of Geo characters in the party. Also moves together with your active character.
• Generates 1 Crystal Collapse every 1.5s that deals AoE Geo DMG to 1 opponent within the skill's AoE.
• Pulls 1 elemental shard in the skill's AoE to your active character's position every 1.5s (elemental shards are created by Crystallize reactions).
If a General's War Banner created by Gorou currently exists on the field when this ability is used, it will be destroyed. In addition, for the duration of General's Glory, Gorou's Elemental Skill "Inuzaka All-Round Defense" will not create the General's War Banner.
If Gorou falls, the effects of General's Glory will be cleared.
"We have the high ground!" Gorou can ever so slightly change the terrain of the battlefield to help win victory. This technique has seen him through many battles against seemingly superior opposition.

A Favor Repaid
Gorou receives the following DMG Bonuses to his attacks based on his DEF:
Inuzaka All-Round Defense: Skill DMG increased by 156% of DEF

Constellations
Rushing Hound: Swift as the Wind
When characters (other than Gorou) within the AoE of Gorou's General's War Banner or General's Glory deal Geo DMG to opponents, the CD of Gorou's Inuzaka All-Round Defense is decreased by 2s.
This effect can occur once every 10s.
Sitting Hound: Steady as a Clock
While General's Glory is in effect, its duration is extended by 1s when a nearby active character obtains an Elemental Shard from a Crystallize reaction.
This effect can occur once every 0.1s. Max extension is 3s.
Mauling Hound: Fierce as Fire
Increases the Level of Inuzaka All-Round Defense by 3.
Maximum upgrade level is 15.
Lapping Hound: Warm as Water
When General's Glory is in the "Impregnable" or "Crunch" states, it will also heal active characters within its AoE by 50% of Gorou's own DEF every 1.5s.
Striking Hound: Thunderous Force
Increases the Level of Juuga: Forward Unto Victory by 3.
Maximum upgrade level is 15.
Valiant Hound: Mountainous Fealty
For 12s after using Inuzaka All-Round Defense or Juuga: Forward Unto Victory, increases the CRIT DMG of all nearby party members' Geo DMG based on the buff level of the skill's field at the time of use:
• "Standing Firm": +10%
• "Impregnable": +20%
• "Crunch": +40%
This effect cannot stack and will take reference from the last instance of the effect that is triggered.

About Gorou: Top Dog
Huh? "Top Dog Gorou"? Where did you hear that? *sigh* To be honest, I've grown quite close with my fellow officers, and always share any good news I might have with them. In private, they've all started calling me Top Dog out of respect... But in terms of age, they are all my seniors.

About Gorou: Advice
The troops seem to picture me as someone of extraordinary abilities — I think it might be because of our streak of victories lately. Now they always come to me for advice on even the most trivial matters. When I see the expectant look in their eyes, it's impossible for me to turn them away, but at the same time, my strategic ability is limited... All I can do is give some general pointers, or failing that, respond based on my gut feeling alone. *sigh* I just hope I'm not letting them down.

Whatever it is, I'm all ears.

About Us: Camaraderie
We train together, eat together, and relax together. There's no better way to strengthen communication and build tacit understanding between everyone on the team. In the heat of battle, just a simple glance can transmit crucial information. Hmm? You don't think it's very appropriate? Huh... Well, I mean, that's how the troops and I have been bonding as a team.

About the Vision
My Vision amplifies my abilities in battle. It allows me to take greater responsibility on the battlefield and forge a way forward for the troops. But I also understand that one person alone, no matter how strong, is never enough to turn the tide of a battle. The key to victory is everyone's united effort, fighting for a common cause.

Something to Share: Dressed for Battle
I don't like to enter battle wearing lots of heavy equipment. I travel light, that's my style. My strength is in moving quickly around the battlefield, seeking out opportunities to take control of the fight. I always target the strongest warriors first to weaken the enemy's morale.

Something to Share: Ever-Victorious General
The troops have come up with a nickname for me, the "ever-victorious pointy-eared general." Now there's even a rumor going around saying that "if you want Top Dog Gorou's victorious luck, give his pointy ears a rub." Grrr, there will be no rubbing of my ears, and that's final. If they think they can smile their way into persuading me otherwise, well, they've got another thing... Hmm? Hey, wh—what are you doing? Not you too...? Come on now, I... I thought I... Mm.... Mm...

About Beidou
Captain Beidou values camaraderie, and her exceptional abilities command respect. She once said that she prefers to avoid involving her companions in disputes that don't concern them, which I can completely understand. That's why I only request her help when we have no one else to turn to.

About Kaedehara Kazuha
I've seen all kinds of wandering samurai before, and Kazuha is categorically a different breed from the others. He's like a gust of wind that sweeps through the land. Though he never stays for long, he is always able to contribute something to those who are around him. When I fought alongside him, I learned more about what it means to be truly carefree and without constraints. In any case, I think that Kazuha and I make a great team together!

About Sangonomiya Kokomi: Duties
As the leader of Watatsumi Island, Her Excellency is responsible for assessing the scenario and formulating a plan.

We are united with the whole resistance in achieving a single purpose: victory.

About Sangonomiya Kokomi: Attitude
I have only the utmost respect for Her Excellency. Without her ingenious and insightful strategies, the resistance could never have come as far as it has today. But if you ask me, it seems that deep down she prefers a much quieter existence. So when there's no pressing military matters, I try not to disturb her too much.

About the Raiden Shogun
Grr, the Raiden Shogun... I could never bring myself to accept her past actions, no matter what her reasoning may have been.

About Kujou Sara
I have nothing good to say about the Shogun's Army, but Kujou Sara is perhaps the most honorable officer among their ranks. We've met each other countless times in battle, emerging both victorious and defeated at different times. *sigh* I know now that it's not realistic to think this way, but I did use to wonder what things would be like if those like her could value the wishes of the people and be free from the grip of the Shogunate.

About Kamisato Ayaka
The Yashiro Commission operates as part of the Shogunate, but on many issues they tend to side with the people of Inazuma. In fact, the Shirasagi Himegimi has managed to establish an excellent reputation for herself, despite facing pressure from both sides. I suppose she must know how to keep her composure at all times and navigate sensitive situations tactfully... There's much I could learn from her.

About Sayu
Hmm, according to our intel, she is a ninja proficient in the art of infiltration — a skill set which could prove very useful in some of Her Excellency's special operations... However, our intel also indicates that she could be difficult to recruit as she is rather unruly, and often disappears without a trace. Hmm? She's with the Yashiro Commission? Oh, well forget it then.

About Shikanoin Heizou
You mean that sneaky detective that never seems to actually be working on a case? Well, no one from the Shogunate can be fully trusted, so I'll be keeping my eyes and ears on him! On a separate note, he does have some talent for investigation. But how can we know that this isn't all part of some nefarious scheme? Hmm. Only time will tell, I suppose.

More About Gorou: II
I may not have superior cunning or intelligence, but what I do have is my own two hands and my life to lay on the line. Countless battles in, I'm still here, so I guess these hands and my will to survive were both strong enough to see me through. Some even say that no matter how dire the battle may be, everyone will emerge unscathed as long as they follow me. And with that, I've somehow gained enough reputation among our forces to become the leader that I am now.

More About Gorou: III
At first, our only enemies were roaming bandits, pirates, and monsters. But then, everything changed when the Raiden Shogun enacted the Vision Hunt Decree. The Shogun's Army marched up expecting to put us in our place, but we were ready for them, and we hit them hard. Hehe, I bet they never expected to meet such fierce resistance.

More About Gorou: IV
Her Excellency once warned me of my fatal flaw... I tend to get too engrossed in battle, fighting deep into enemy lines and forgetting about everything else. She told me that my bravery is commendable, but as a ranking officer, it's not my place to do this. I'm doing my best to improve, but... Would you also be able to keep an eye on me?

More About Gorou: V
We are not fighting against any particular group or faction. No, we fight against a destructive malice — a malice that has trampled the aspirations of the people and destroyed the peaceful lives they once knew. After I rid the land of such evil I will be able to peacefully lay down my weapon. Only then will I trade my uniform for civilian attire... and finally stroll the beautiful landscape of Watatsumi Island together with you.

Gorou's Hobbies
I love mountain climbing! The steeper, the better. Climbing trains my body and mind, making me stronger with every grip and every foothold. Better yet is climbing mountains with fellow companions. After hours of dirt and sweat scaling the summit, we can sit down and enjoy the view together. It's one of life's greatest joys! Ahem, however, I have absolutely no desire to scale the tallest peak in Inazuma...

Favorite Food
My favorites are cake and Tricolor Dango, probably because I seldom get the chance to enjoy the luxury of sweets. The rations we have in the field are intended to be simple, effective, and quick, and are seldom served with any seasonings at all, let alone sugar... It's probably the most precious commodity of all. Ah, what can I say — I guess I just have a sweet tooth!

Least Favorite Food
I'll pretty much eat anything, but onions are an exception. One time, the logistics division added ground onion to my food and I bawled in front of everyone, right there at the mess table... *sigh* Talk about embarrassing. The soldiers from logistics felt terrible about it, too.

Character Details
Gorou is the great general of Watatsumi Island's military, and he is deeply loved by his subordinates.

During the period of the Vision Hunt Decree, Gorou led the forces of Watatsumi against the Shogun's Army, and successfully held the line against them.

The troops call him the "ever-victorious pointy-eared general," a nickname that has also seen broad use among Shogunate warriors.

In private, however, Gorou puts on no airs and is a straightforward person, which has led him to be regarded by all as the man with the plan.

But even such an exemplary general must have his fair share of troubles...
Character Story 1
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 2
Gorou was once an ordinary Watatsumi soldier.

During a certain special operation, Gorou's unit, Gorgasia II, faced an unprecedented crisis.

Their captain had been felled by a stray arrow, and the survivors were surrounded deep in the mountains.

To continue their mission, to ask for reinforcements, to open negotiations with the enemy... Countless choices lay before them, but the mountain was silent.

Leaderless and without any supplies, the unit was on its last legs. With their morale flagging, thoughts of surrender shrouded many minds.

At this critical moment, Gorou stood up. He rejected negotiation and surrender, and instead proposed a bold plan.

They would not hide any longer. Instead, he would lead the larger part of the platoon in a feigned attack to buy the others a chance to call for reinforcements. Once those reinforcements arrived, they could perform a pincer attack together.

When asked what they should do if they failed, Gorou replied:

"If the enemy surrounds us any further, our options will be even more limited. The way I see it, we still have a chance, so we've got to give it all we've got."

"I'll take responsibility if the plan fails."

After holding the line for several days without rest, the exhausted Gorou and his companions were finally relieved by a force led by Sangonomiya Kokomi herself.

After that, he was promoted to serve as the captain of Gorgasia II, and from there he would work his way up to the rank of General.
Character Story 2

In the eyes of the men, Gorou is a strict but humble general.

He is straightforward and easy-going, and he treats his subordinates like his own family, sharing weal and woe with them.

Sangonomiya Kokomi once told Gorou that materiel, supplies, and salaries were the three most important things to an army.

From that day on, he would personally explain weapon maintenance to his subordinates. Every time the granaries were opened, he would supervise the process strictly to prevent any unlawful deductions.

And as General Gorou, he will always lead from the front.

The sight of him charging at the tip of the spear is like a rallying banner, encouraging the troops behind him to continue advancing.

These are all reasons why the troops greatly respect him. As with Kokomi, Gorou greatly treasures the lives of his troops, but by contrast, values his own quite little.

Some who understand little of the thought process behind this occasionally joke that Gorou is a "kid" who doesn't seem like a general at all.

But to the soldiers of Watatsumi Island, this kid is the best general they could ask for.
Character Story 3
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 4
Gorou is valiant and decisive, often leading inferior forces to victory over superior opposition.

However, he does have a shortcoming of his own — a sometimes unstable temper.

That is to say that the blood sometimes rushes to his head at the height of a battle.

War is cruel, and Gorou does indeed lack experience compared to veterans who have been scrapping it out on battlefields for decades.

Fortunately, he learns fast and is currently trying to make up for his various small failings.

Sangonomiya Kokomi often provides her various commanders with directives, but how they are used is up to the skill of the commander in question.

For his part, Gorou is always able to execute the courses of action that best suit the present situation from the directives he has been given.

Gorou believes that over time, he will come to internalize the concepts behind them. Perhaps then, he can take the field with even more confidence than before.
Character Story 4
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 5
At Yae Miko's request, Gorou has taken up a certain extra "job" at Yae Publishing House.

With the end of the Vision Hunt Decree, and the successful negotiations between Watatsumi Island and the Shogunate, relations between the two sides are beginning to warm.

Gorou has also visited Narukami Island quite a few times to check out the changes, buy a few popular books, and go to Yae Publishing House to complete the task he agreed to help with.

Yae Miko set up an anonymous column for Gorou in the "That's Life" magazine. Here, readers will write about the things that trouble them and send them to Yae Publishing House, upon which Gorou will give them some suggestions.

Yae Publishing House will take special care to redact any personal information revealed on the part of the write-ins or Gorou's replies, and will replace real names with pseudonyms.

According to Yae Miko, she chose him because she'd heard that he often listened to his subordinates when they chatted about personal matters.

The column proved to be very popular indeed, but for whatever reason, every time an editor delivers the royalties to Gorou, they might sheepishly ask:

"Ah, speaking of which, Gorou, have you heard of Ms. Hina?"

"I've heard that she's a rather popular columnist, and a recent one, too. Is something the matter?"

"Oh, no, no... It's nothing..."

Just as the troops don't exactly tell Gorou everything happening in their lives, Gorou, too, has some troubles that are difficult to share.

For example, how his tail fur starts to get dull and look haggard after being exposed to the elements for too long, and how he'd love to tend to it — if he could only spare the time out in the field.

Or how he sometimes feels a bit inferior about his slight physique when bathing together with his subordinates.

Or about how encountering inscrutable women like Yae Miko sends him into defense mode instantly, rendering him unable to properly interact with them...

In trying to maintain a respectable image, Gorou refrains from telling his soldiers about such troubles.

And while they have been able to guess at his troubles to some extent, the Watatsumi soldiers often just play along and pretend that they don't notice.

As such, his worries just kept piling up, until the Traveler arrived, thus granting the Watatsumi general, ever good at banishing the worries of others, someone who could help relieve him of his own woes.
Mountaineering Gear
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 4
Of Gorou's various hobbies, "mountaineering" is likely up there in the top three.

Sweating it out while climbing a mountain with companions before admiring the beauty all around you helps to train both the mind and body and is a great camaraderie-builder.

To better enjoy this hobby of his, Gorou bought a set of mountaineering gear from a traveling merchant.

The set is not particularly pricey, but it is both sturdy and durable and has seen Gorou through many dangerous ascents.

Just as he maintains his weapons well, Gorou has also kept this set of gear in tip-top shape. There is little doubt that it will accompany him through many future journeys as well.
Vision
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 6
There was a time when Gorou ascribed responsibility for victory or loss in battle entirely to himself.

"If only I became a little stronger, perhaps I'd be able to turn the tide."

It was in this spirit that Gorou trained his archery day and night, hoping to rely on his strength to lead his comrades to victory.

But after some time on the battlefield, Gorou saw powerful warriors being isolated and captured alive, while weak troops in inferior positions could rout their enemies through unity.

That was when Gorou realized that a single person's battlefield capabilities are limited.

Getting stronger is important, naturally, but uniting the troops to fight as one is even more crucial.

A troop can only be unbeatable if they are strong together.

Having realized this, Gorou no longer pursued the apex of excellence in archery, but instead invested time and effort in those around him, helping everyone improve together.

Thinking back on it, this may have opened the door for Gorou to obtain his Vision.

    Honestly this character is a disgrace, Mihoyo reaching new lows. As the first geo bow, Gorou could have been interesting but he is literally nothing but a walking buffbot for Itto or Noelle. That’s it.

    His damage is horrific, you can leave him naked with his starter bow level 1 and he will work just fine to do his E or Q then switch off. Getting him +20 artifacts and 90 weapon is almost a waste. Of course you will do that to scrap any utility you can from this broken character, with a Favonius bow or whatever. But the only significant reason to level him at all is to level his E.

    Mihoyo couldn’t even come up with an interesting Q so they just copied his E. They are probably going to sell a better geo support (one who actually does a bit of damage) but it will be a 5* and you have to gamble with their scam banners.

      Honestly, he’s in a reasonably good spot. His animations and gameplay are smooth. In teams that can take advantage of his DEF buff, he’s literally better than Bennett and those teams can also take advantage of Bennett on top of his buff if they so wished or just have Bennett freed up to be used on another team. Outside of defense scaling characters, his benefit isn’t strong but that’s basically the definition of a a well-designed niche character.

      Not every character has to be Bennett, and not everyone cares for them being broken or not.

      Just calm down and stop playing if the “Scam banners” and “New lows” bother you that much.

    What the dog doin

  2. Appreciate you for sharing all these wonderful posts. In addition, the best travel and medical insurance approach can often relieve those fears that come with traveling abroad. Some sort of medical crisis can shortly become too expensive and that’s likely to quickly put a financial weight on the family’s finances. Having in place the excellent travel insurance package prior to leaving is well worth the time and effort. Thanks

    Out of his three crownable talents, it’s the most worth to crown since it increases his Defense buff.

      If you’re still early in the game you can skip the crowning for now.
      But if you’re already on the point where you pushing for better damage for Albedo/Noelle/Itto then YES.
      Or if you’re in a point where you need Yun Jin to provide better buff then also YES.
      Also if you really like him so much then go crown him.
