Shirabe can awakened at Level 20 since v3.0.3 by consuming:
- 30 Scarlet Cores.
Stats by Level
Her stats are similarly skewed towards FRAG, and comparatively she is slightly better than Eto (+2 FRAG and +1 STEP)
- Her maximum FRAG stat translate to 1.64x fragment multiplier.
- Her maximum STEP stat translate to 1.46x step multiplier for world mode.
- Her maximum OVER stat translate to 1.04x progression multiplier in Beyond Chapter
Due to the high amount of high level, high chart constant conflict songs in the game, Shirabe is surprisingly an effective partner for fragments farming. Like Eto, the bonus +5 fragments are added before the multiplier, and on average, will generally give more fragments than 90-95 FRAG partners. She is especially effective when a chart is cleared with a Full Recall or Pure Memory.
While the STEP stat is below average, as discussed in Hikari (Zero) the low STEP stat can be used for nailing the landing on a Stamina tile. Do keep in mind that the fragments bonus is only applicable in normal play.
Her awakened skill takes the respective amount of fragments (the difficulty level of the chart you're about to play) as you select the song (9+ and 10+ are treated as 9 and 10 respectively), meaning that closing out of the song after starting will result in permanently losing those fragments. Getting an EX grade or above will add 10 fragments to your total regardless of chart level. When playing in World Mode, the fragments are not decucted.
- The song she was released with contains the word "carmine," which is a type of red. This matches her color scheme.
- Scarlet Cage's Story has the least number of entries out of all story paths, having only 3.
