    I really like his ability to gain armor! At 5 stacks, he takes virtually no damage. He can negate many BB3 moves and even get a punish afterwards! Now, instead of trying to sacrifice my weakest character to a BB3, I just have him tank it! Even better, the taunt moves that give armor are actually useful now. I think he's worth investing into!

    I don't know how he compares stat-wise to natural gold units. I hope he is still good end-game.

    His signature abilities are somewhat better than Armed Forces Cerebella because the activation rate is double than her's. I consider Resonant Evil one of the few silver fighters truly worth evolving to gold.

    He's probably one of the tankiest, if not, the tankiest character in the game because of his signatures. He can easily solo in prize events, but maybe not so much in other situations where you need lots of damage in order to win before the timer runs out.

    Resonate Evil Big Band + noise cancel has been my favorite combination given the current high level ai.

    Yeah, I feel you, mate. Master of Unblocking saved me from an Argus Agony yesterday... and also kept me from killing far too many Big Bands when I was doing Walking The Beat yesterday. That got annoying after a while.
    Between Master of Unblocking's Armor-stacking and Can't Stop The Beat letting Big Band armor through projectiles while dashing (though I assume this doesn't apply to Blockbuster projectiles, since I've definitely stopped a dashing Big Band with Argus Agony before: also, can Master of Unblocking trigger from this? I feel like it should, but I dunno), Resonant Evil Big Band can be really annoying to deal with.

    I concur with moisterrific, Resonant Evil is very much worth evolving to Gold (though if you get two, maybe keep one at Silver for Silver-Only/No-Gold fights).

    Also, I dunno how Resonant Evil stacks up to Private Dick or Epic Sax Big Bands stat-wise after evolving to Gold, and I dunno anything about Private Dick since I don't have one, but I would assume that Epic Sax is better if you're looking for a Big Band that deals a lot of damage (his Signature ability does extra damage with every hit of a combo and also grants a random beneficial Combat Effect every 20 hits, which would be amazing if you have Specials/Blockbusters that hit a lot of times, like Beat Extend/Strike Up The Band/Tuba Tuba/others I'm forgetting about), while Resonant Evil is better if you want a Big Band that can potentially survive anything (with Master of Unblocking, you can get a potential 3/4/5-stack of Armor during a single combo, thus greatly reducing or negating all damage until it wears off, and also has a chance of Stunning enemies when he gets hit while having Armor... although, this requires getting lucky enough to trigger these effects, and that Big Band get hit in the first place).

    Stat wise you should always build defence and HP for Resonant Evil because you'll want him to be able to tank many hits. Defence caps at 50% so if you manage to get 2 stacks of armor you'll take 0 damage. It's also a good idea to have a healer on the team like some versions of Valentine to keep him alive longer.

    Yes, and these abilities are why he's gay and overpowered. He's a pain in the bum to fight, so meanwhile when you're using *s k I l l* to fight off resonant evil big band, all he has to do is stand there like a brain dead 4 year old and use his ---- little special moves and easily kill you. Imbalances like these are what make me hate this trash game.

    Please do not use terms like 'gay' as an insult. It is extremely derogatory to people who are actually gay.

    I think Resonant Evil is a weird character to level up against stronger fighters: He's got a tame damage output even with the combos and he's not got a decent enough hp or defence yet to make the most of his ability. I'm sure that will change when I get some decent stat moves and put some levels into the guy.

    Resonant Evil is too strong on defence and too weak on offence. I think he should have his signature ability tweaked where he'll be less annoying to fight and slightly more reliable to use.

    Yeah, as much as he's useful as my main tank, i skip every enemy team that has a RE on the team, it just not worth the effort.
