Author's Note: I was poking around and found that the Krishna guide we currently have is sorely outdated and has not been updated in a long time. I as well as many others are eager to jump aboard the Krishna hype train, THERE ARE NO BRAKES, so here we go!

Friend List Directory Spoiler: Who is Krishna? I. Who is Krishna? Krishna in Mythology Krishna is one of the incarnations of the god Vishnu. In the Bhagavad Gita, part of the Sanskrit, the Hindu scripture, which is part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata, Krishna reveals himself in his universal form (shown here) to the prince Arjuna at the onset of a massive war. He is the subject of many cults within the Hindu religion and Hindu culture, and is also depicted as a mischievous, joyful boy playing the flute. Later on in life he had eight principal wives, and married over 15,000 other women (varies depending on the script). He married them all to save them from destruction or punishment and in his palace gave them shelter and a respectable place in society. Krishna in Puzzle & Dragons Krishna is part of the Indian 2 pantheon. They were released in 2014 and the pantheon as a whole (aside from Ganesha and Durga), debuted the idea of matching multiple orbs of one color for a multiplier. This at the time had never been seen before! Unfortunately aside from Sarasvati, they had a hard time retaining relevance. Krishna's ultimate evolution came out and greatly improved upon his leader skill. This and Sarasvati helped to debut the match-5 fireworks leader skill system that we all know and love today. Unfortunately, Krishna received no new awakenings and again became obscure relatively quickly. In addition, between the time of his ultimate evolution and now, higher multipliers with HP or RCV multipliers had become all but standard, the heart cross meta happened, and glass cannon teams with no durability could readily achieve 100x and above. And Krishna's back, baby! Not only has he gotten an incredibly delicious makeover, his LS received what it needed and he's gotten 5 more awakenings to bump him back to the top. Here we have #1 husbando material (no offense, L.Akechi, I promise). 1.5x to all stats for Fire-attribute cards. 3x ATK for 2 Fire combos. 4.5x ATK for 3+ Fire combos. Fire orb skyfall buff that lasts 3 turns. 6 turns cooldown at max skill (9 skill ups required) Krishna is now a 2.25 / 45.5625 / 2.25 leader. Just...let that sink in.
