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



Tairitsu's name means "conflict" in Japanese.


Tairitsu has long black hair with strands tied into small pigtails with black bows.

She has a ruffly black and pink colored collar with another bow at the edge. Her jacket is black with a pink trim and a cutout on the shoulders. It also has cutouts on the back and sides.

Her skirt is grey and pleated with a blue stripe and a black stripe. There are two layers underneath-a pink scalloped edge with spade symbols dangling off and an enormous navy blue ruffled skirt. She also wears black tights and black heeled shoes.

Tairitsu has seven alternate versions: Tairitsu (Axium), Tairitsu (Grievous Lady) (who appeared in Vicious Labyrinth), Tairitsu (Summer), Tairitsu & Trin, Tairitsu (Grievous Lady) & Chuni Penguin, Tairitsu (Sonata), and Tairitsu (Tempest).


Tairitsu was once a normal girl with a cheerful personality, but following multiple attacks by the Arcaea imbued with conflict, she is overcome with despair and turmoil. She slowly sees the world of Arcaea as a dark, twisted world only filled with memories full of conflict. She looks at those memories with hysteric pleasure. Even so, she still hopes that one day, she will find a memory that glows with light and happiness.

Tairitsu is considered the baseline of all partners as she is available by default with perfectly balanced stats.

  • Both of her level 20 FRAG and STEP stats translate to 1.60x multipliers.
  • If awakened, the maximum fragment and step multipliers are both 1.80x.

She is a Balance type with no special skills, and uses the regular Recollection gauge. Players will also get a purple, regular Track Complete stat that will count towards a player's clear stat.

Since players are practically not penalized for failing in World Mode (unless using any Challenge-type partner like Tairitsu (Grievous Lady) or Ilith), it is advisable to use Tairitsu on World Mode even for starters. However, she will be quickly replaced with other higher-step partners such as Tairitsu (Axium) provided the player has bought the pack and obtained her from World Mode.
