Not to be confused with the song Hikari.

Hikari is one of the main Partners in Arcaea. As with Tairitsu, she is unlocked by default.

Character

Name

Hikari's name means "light" in Japanese.

Appearance

Hikari has long white hair that curls at the ends, with short layers reaching to her cheeks framing her face. She wears a red beret with a white pattern that extends up the sides without continuing to the top. Two blue diamond-shaped clasps are attached to either side of the hat, each with a short dark blue-gray ribbon with white stripes. Her eyes are gray in her default and awakened partner art, although other in-game depictions present them as being blue, brown, or pink.

Hikari's outfit consists of multiple layered garments. The bottom layer is a white dress with a frilled mock turtleneck, a fitted bodice, flared sleeves extending just past the elbow, and a flared, mid-thigh-length skirt. Above this, she wears a short asymmetrical jacket held closed by a gold clasp with a seifuku-style collar, flared sleeves, and a gray diamond pattern over the chest as well as light gray trim on the arms. Red patches in the shape of a crest, and with a floral motif, are sewn to the arms of her jacket. A red bow with white stripes and a blue diamond clasp in the center is also attached to the jacket. On the lower half of her body over top of her dress, she wears a navy blue pleated skirt with a white stripe. Above this, she wears a white overskirt extending on either side but not at the front or back; it is patterned at the bottom, with metallic ornaments attached to each side, and seemingly held in place by another red bow with white stripes and a blue diamond clasp at the front, and a white ribbon at the back. A different, frilled white ribbon loops around her skirts. Her boots extend mid-calf and are patterned similarly to her overskirt.

Variants

Hikari has six alternate versions: Hikari (Zero), Hikari (Fracture), Hikari & Fisica, Hikari (Summer), Hikari & Seine, and Hikari (Fantasia).

Personality

Hikari is shown in Eternal Core's story to be somewhat impulsive, saying what she feels and choosing to gather the Arcaea purely on a whim. She is also careless, not concerning herself with questions of her origins or circumstance, instead traveling through the world eager to see all the memories she can. Her exposure to only light Arcaea leaves her unaware of the darkness in the past, contributing to her naïve mindset.

Notes

Hikari starts off with the same FRAG stat as Tairitsu, but she gains less FRAG per level compared to Tairitsu and her STEP count is lower than Tairitsu at any level, even after awakening. Hikari's EASY skill is recommended for people who have just started playing Arcaea. The EASY skill will give a green (easy) clear and will not count towards a player's Clear stat, but will still satisfy song unlock requirements. Thus, Hikari can be used to achieve faster clears on difficult charts in order to obtain wanted songs.

Since players are not penalized for failing in World Mode unless using Ilith, it is advisable to use Tairitsu on World Mode instead even for new players.
