Quest Global Node:

Power Struggle: The Attacker cannot gain Power during the fight through normal means. Each time the Defender reaches a full Bar of Power, the Attacker is granted one as well and whenever the Defender launches a Special Attack, the Attacker loses an equal amount of Power.


Two normal combos (MLLLM) normally give the opponent a little bit above 1 bar of power. So, if you can do this, you will have a bar of power to use before the end of your combo.

The final thing to remember is that if the combo-ending hit is the one that pushes the opponent over a bar of power, then you get a bar of power because of the node, you cannot use that special because you will use it too late and they will block it (or you can use someone like HB, Valkyrie, Massacre who benefits from their special attacks being blocked.)

The part that makes this boss hard is that on top of needing someone who counters the Poison node, you also must counter the Arc Overload, and there are a few ways of doing that:
