Smite New God Reveal: Kuzenbo, King Kappa

Smite has summoned a new God on its battleground: Kuzenbo, the King Kappa. Kappas are known to be mischievous turtle-men, who are known for ruthlessly submerging their prey. And they bow to only one king by the name of Kuzenbo.

Kuzenbo is bigger, stronger, and more cunning than the rest of his army. A bowl-shaped indentation lies on top of his head, which when filled with water makes him stronger. He is also known for his strange sense of honor. A Kappa must bow when bowed to, spilling their power upon the ground. It is the only way known to defeat them. And this is how Kuzenbo is defeated by a mere mortal known as General Kiyomasa.

Gods, however, are a different story. They offer a fair game which Kuzenbo longs for.

Passive: Water Bowl

Every time Kuzenbo receives 2% of his maximum health worth of damage, he is granted with a Stack of 1% Damage Reduction for each 2% loss and the bowl of water atop his head fills. It has a Max of 10 Stacks. The Stacks last for 10 seconds and are refreshed each time he gains another.

1st Ability: NeNe Kappa

Kuzenbo throws the mighty Nene Kappa, who can ricochet off of walls. The Nene Kappa can bounce off of a wall and will travel 70 units from that point and can do a maximum of 2 bounces. If Nene Kappa hits an enemy God, it will burst forth from its shell and attack the opponent.

2nd Ability: Shell Spikes

The spikes on Kuzenbo’s back extend out, damaging any enemies who attack him. While the skill is activated, each time Kuzenbo is attacked, the cooldown on NeNe Kappa is reduced.

3rd Ability: Sumo Slam

Kuzenbo charges forward and damages Enemy minions on his path. He uses his strength to push the first enemy God he hits along with him. Each subsequent enemy he hits will deal damage to that enemy unit, and the God Kuzenbo is pushing. Colliding the enemy to a wall brings additional damage to the enemy God. During this skill, Kuzenbo is immune to slow or stun.

Ultimate: Watery Grave

Kuzenbo pulls himself inward to his shell and spins, summoning dangerous currents that can knock enemies back. While the skill is activated, Kuzenbo movement speed increases and the damage he receives after the first spin is reduced to 50%. Kuzenbo is also allowed to move freely in all directions.

Kuzenbo, the King Kappa, is a brawler type of God that has a skill set perfect for crowd control, and a high defense that allows him to act as a tank and initiate team fights.

Smite is a free-to-play MOBA game set in a third-person perspective, a unique feature for its genre. It is developed by Hi-Rez Studios for Microsoft Windows PCs and gaming laptops.
