Mementos (called Nensou in Japan) are a mechanic that adds something similar to a fourth gear slot, although the attributes do stack with gear attributes. A memento will grant a minor attribute bonus to whomever equips it. Then, depending on the memento, it will also grant additional, larger attributes to units of a certain group (such as a country) and/or 1-4 specific units. In the example to the right, all units get a minor health bonus, units from Slothenstein get a large health bonus, and Fiona, Edgar, and Veloz get an agility bonus on top of their other bonuses. Mementos can also provide special abilities or skins to the unit wearing it.


Memento Benefits[edit | edit source]

Base Stats[edit | edit source]

The base stats provided by a memento are only given to the unit who equips it.

Group Skills[edit | edit source]

The group skills of a memento are provided to all units within the unit group that are present in the party, as long as one unit in that group has the memento equipped. The group skills will not stack if multiple units in the group have the same memento equipped. There may be multiple group skills on a memento with different unit triggers- often one group skill is for a single or small group of units, and another is for a much larger group of units.

Vision Abilities[edit | edit source]

Vision abilities on the memento are generally available without limit breaks or level requirements, but they often scale based on the limit break of the memento. Some vision abilities are available to all units, but others may be restricted based on various factors such as unit, job or origin.

Vision Clear Reward[edit | edit source]

Vision Clear Rewards (VCR) are rewards provided for fully leveling up a memento's vision experience (similar to Trust Mastery from Brave Exvius). This is often, but not always, a gear that is exclusively obtained through that memento. This gear is usually fairly powerful, and when obtained from a character's memento, these gears will often provide a special benefit to that unit. The vision clear reward is displayed in the upper right of the memento screen.

Skin[edit | edit source]

Some mementos provide a special character skin when the memento is equipped.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Most mementos are obtained through gacha, and will have their own roll. Like other gacha, this will typically start with a discounted 500 gem pull, then sometimes feature a discounted 1500 gem second step; but the remaining steps will be 2500 gems. Unlike with characters or gear, the memento gacha is diluted because it also contains units. This is temporary, in Japan once there were a good supply of memento available the memento summon no longer included units.

Some memento are provided through other sources such as temporary or permanent events.

Upgrading Mementos[edit | edit source]

Limit Breaking[edit | edit source]

Limit breaking a memento will increase the stats granted by it and sometimes give additional bonus stats at max limit break. The vision abilities provided by memento will often also scale based on limit breaks. You can view the enhancements to group bonuses from limit breaks under "Enhancement Bonus".

A memento must be fed a duplicate memento to limit break. Unlike with gear, you don't need to be at max level to limit break. You'll have to feed the memento five copies of itself to fully max it out. If the copy also has limit breaks, those will be copied to the memento you are feeding it to. Each copy of itself will also provide +5% alchemic boundary towards the Vision Clear Reward, plus whatever alchemic boundary the copy was at and experience towards leveling the memento based on the level of the duplicate copy. You can limit break a memento under "Enhance".

Leveling[edit | edit source]

Memento cards gain experience by being "fed" other memento cards. See the Memento Experience Chart to check how much experience is required to level.

Leveling Specific Mementos[edit | edit source]

There are special memento cards called Apple Ratties that provide a large experience bonus. These are typically obtained through milestones, missions, and events such as Vision Quest. Increasing the level of a memento will increase the stats provided by it. You can level a memento under "Enhance [Bulk]".

Image Name Rarity Experience
Ratty's Excursion
Ratty's Excursion 1 2,000
Ratty's Companions
Ratty's Companions 2 4,000
Ratty's Bliss
Ratty's Bliss 3 10,000
Ratty's New Hope
Ratty's New Hope 4 50,000

Duplicate Mementos[edit | edit source]

Whenever you feed copies of a memento to itself (under "Enhance") the memento will gain experience proportional to the rarity and level of the memento. Because of this, it can be advantageous to level a duplicate memento some before merging it into another memento, as long as the experience required to get to the next level is lower than the bonus per level. For more details see Maximizing Memento EXP (Reddit).

Rarity Initial Experience Bonus Per Level Above 1 Optimal Level For Duplicate
5 20,000 10,000 11
4 10,000 5,000 8
3 4,000 2,000 5

Alchemic Boundary[edit | edit source]

Vision Clear Rewards, or VCR (possibly called Alchemic Boundary in the global version), are rewards provided for fully leveling up a memento's vision experience (similar to Trust Mastery from Brave Exvius). This is often, but not always, a gear that is exclusively obtained through that memento. This gear is usually fairly powerful, and when obtained from a character's memento, these gears will often provide a special benefit to that unit. The current alchemic boundary of a memento is displayed in the upper right of the memento screen.

To gain vision experience:

  • Feed a copy of a card to itself. Each time you do this gives +5% plus any alchemic boundary already on the copy. You can do this more than five times, but there are only five limit break levels.
  • Run missions which cost AP (without using skip tickets) with the memento equipped to a unit on your team. This provides a chance to gain +1% towards the VCR.
  • Run special events such as Vision Quest, which provide bonus alchemic boundary (typically 1% per run with a 3/day limit) to specific memento. Later on, there will be regular EXs that provide alchemic boundary to specific mementos.
  • Reminiscences of a Robot Reminiscences of a Robot can be fed to a card to increase its alchemic boundary by 5%. This is a relatively rare drop from Vision Quest and can sometimes be obtained from other sources.
