Dark Sun Deity, Ra

Please also see the guides for 999i Pure Light Sun Deity, Ra and 2012i 覚醒ラー.


Five-Color Ra (including here both 497i Sun Deity Ra and 998i Dark Sun Deity, Ra) is the second most challenging of the Egyptian gods to activate (just behind the situationally useful 498i Anubis). He's immensely powerful, but his Leader skill can only work on around 60% of all random boards. With enough ability and luck, however, especially with a good team, he can take down every dungeon in the game for low stones, either with a second Ra (risky!), or an easier Egyptian god, like 490i Horus or 492i Isis. Ra/Horus is considered safe for even most Descended dungeons, especially 995i Blazing Deity Falcon, Horus while Ra/Isis tends to lack sufficient punch for the harder dungeons.

Valuable subs for Sun Deity Ra or Dark Sun Deity Ra include Delay/Menace subs like 1099i Crimson Lotus Mistress, Echidna, "Heartbreakers" like 692i Earth-Rending Emperor, Siegfried and 693i Noble Wolf King Hero, Cu Chulainn, and strong defensive monsters like 318i Wood Mech Warrior, Asgard. His very best friend is 1586i Shining Goddess of Secrets, Kali (with 1588i Destroying Goddess of Power, Kali close behind), if you're lucky enough to pull either of them. It is essential that every color is represented on Ra's team.

Except in rare cases, Ra should always be teamed up with another Egyptian god. While he can form teams with 752i Kirin of the Aurora, Sakuya and other Chinese gods in a pinch, by and large they either have more stringent activation conditions for little additional power, or (in the case of Kirin) don't provide the reliability that a Horus or Isis Leader would.

While it's only situationally useful, Ra's Active skill can make short work of dungeons with High-Defense/Low-HP monsters.

For New Players

Ra is one of the most challenging leaders to start with, but also one of the most rewarding. If you have the patience and aptitude to stick with him (especially if you have an easier leader to help you through the tough times), there's nearly no content in the game that can stand in your way. Even if you don't feel confident with Ra yet as a new player, you may be glad to have him in your arsenal when you're ready to take on advanced dungeons in the future.

Ra was the Sun God of the ancient Egyptians. Pharaohs were considered to be incarnations of Ra, which may be why his representation in this game is made up of so many royal sarcophagus lids. Wikipedia
