Their family business has gathered a massive, loyal customer base through the years who are willing to help them out on any problems.

Basic Attack: Firework Flare-Up
Normal Attack: Using her bow, Yoimiya fires five consecutive shots that deal massive DMG to her enemies.
Charged Attack: Yoimiya performs a more precise aimed shot that deals increased DMG. While aiming, flames will generate on the arrowhead before being fired off to her opponents.
Her charged attack has different effects based on how long the energy has been channeled.
- Charge Level 1: Fires a flaming arrow dealing Pyro DMG.
- Change Level 2: Generates a maximum of 3 Kindling Arrows based on time spent charging. She then releases it as part of the aimed show and will home in on nearby opponents dealing Pyro DMG on hit.
Plunging Attack: Fires a show of arrows in mid-air before aiming to strike the ground, inflicting AoE DMG upon impact.
Elemental Skill: Niwabi Fire-Dance
Yoimiya waves a sparkler, which generates a ring of saltpeter around her.
During this time, arrows fired using normal attacks will be Blazing Arrows, and their DMG will be converted to Pyro DMG. However, her Firework Flare-Up will not generate Kindling Arrows at Charge Level 2.
Leaving the field will deactivate this effect.
Elemental Burst: Ryuukin Saxifrage
Yoimiya leaps to the air with her creation, the “Ryuukin Saxifrage”, and fires blazing rockets bursting with surprises that deal AoE Pyro DMG to enemies and marks one of her opponents with Aurous Blaze.
- All Normal, Charged, Plunging Attacks, Elemental Skills, and Elemental Burst by any party member that hit an opponent with Aurous Blaze will trigger an explosion, dealing AoE Pyro DMG.
- When an enemy affected by Aurous Blaze is killed, the effect will be transferred to another nearby opponent, which inherits the remaining duration.
- Only one Aurous Blaze explosion can be triggered every two seconds. When she is down, Aurous Blaze effects will be deactivated.
- Tricks of the Trouble-Maker
- Summer Night’s Dawn
