      Charge Level 2: Fire off a Prop Arrow that deals Pyro DMG, and upon hit, it will summon a Grin-Malkin Hat.
    • When firing the Prop Arrow, and when Lyney has more than 60% HP, he will consume a portion of his HP to obtain 1 Prop Surplus stack. Max 5 stacks.
    • The lowest Lyney can drop through this method is 60% of his Max HP
  • Grin-Malkin Hat
    • Can taunt nearby opponents and attract their ATKs. Each opponent can only be taunted by the Had once every 5s.

Elemental Skill - Bewildering Lights (Lv.9)

  • Lyney flourishes with his hat, unleashing a firework surprise! When used, he will clear all current Prop Surplus ATK and deal AoE Pyro DMG to opponents in front of him. DMG will be increased according to the stacks cleared, and this will also regenerate Lyney's HP based on his Max HP. If the fireworks hit opponents, the number of stacks will be the basis for Energy restoration to Lyney.
  • When a Grin-Malkin Hat created by Lyney is on the field, the fireworks will cause it to explode, dealing AoE Pyro DMG equal to that of a Pyrotechnic Strike. The DMG dealt through the Grin-Malkin Hat in this way is considered Charged ATK DMG.
