Matching Character Attributes in Echoes of Mana
Pair Characters of the Same Attribute as Much as Possible
In Echoes of Mana, it is recommended to pair a main and sub character with the same attribute type in battle. Doing so allows the sub character’s special ability gauge to accumulate whenever the main character attacks. Afterwards, you can switch out to your sub character and use their special abilities in critical moments, especially against tough enemies like bosses.

Enemies are Weak to Specific Attributes
Various enemies in the game are weak to different attributes so using the right combination of characters will make defeating them much easier. Be sure to check the quest details to get information on monsters you will encounter and organize your party to gain the advantage.
Note that enemy attacks do not possess any attribute so it is impossible to mitigate damage they deal by using characters of a specific type. Conversely, enemies with attributes that have advantages over your characters will not be dealing extra damage.
