"Throw out kappas and drag your enemy into a watery grave."

Kuzenbo is one of the playable Gods in SMITE.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Kappa are devious creatures. They linger just below the surface of rivers and lakes, waiting for mortals to test the water before snatching and drowning their fleshy meal. Taken merely at their appearance and juvenile sense of humor, they could be mistaken for mischievous turtle-men, almost playful in a rude sort of way, but they are dangerously strong and ruthless when submerging their prey. King among these monsters is Kuzenbo; bigger, stronger, and more cunning than the rest, but just as infantile.

Kuzenbo led his nine thousand Kappa followers to Japan, where they harried river villages and fishing boats, using their unnatural strength to pull mortals below. So clever, so hungry had the Kappa become, that Japan's army marched to fight back, but they were no match.

As the bowl-shaped indentation atop a Kappa's head is filled with water, that Kappa grows impossibly stronger - far stronger than a mortal. Yet, bound by their strange sense of honor, a Kappa must bow when bowed to, spilling their power upon the ground. It is the only known way to defeat one.

And of the countless battles Kuzenbo has fought, he was defeated only twice. Upon his second defeat at the hands of General Kiyomasa, Kuzenbo was forced to swear to never again sow strife between man and beast, a vow the Kappa King has honored ever since.

Gods, however, are fair game.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Passive - Water Bowl
Each time Kuzenbo takes over 2% of his maximum health worth of damage, pre-mitigation, he is granted a Stack of Damage Mitigation as his head fills with water (Max 10 Stacks). Stacks last 10s and refresh each time he gains another. If he is knocked up, grabbed, pulled, banished or otherwise disrupted, the bowl loses half of its stacks. Notes:
 Bullet.png Damage Mitigation: 1.5% per 2% of Maximum Health taken  Bullet.png Maximum Mitigation: 15%
 Bullet.png Mitigation Lost: 5 stacks  Bullet.png Duration: 10s
 Bullet.png Ability Type: Buff

Ability Video

1st Ability - NeNe Kappa
Kuzenbo summons and throws the powerful NeNe Kappa, who can ricochet off of walls. After firing, if the NeNe Kappa bounces off of a wall it will travel 70 units from that point up to a maximum of 2 bounces. After reaching maximum range, or if an Enemy God is hit by the NeNe Kappa, it will burst forth from its shell, slowing and attacking them for 6s. Kuzenbo transfers 20% of his Health and Protections to the NeNe Kappa. Notes:
 Bullet.png Damage: 70/105/140/175/210 (+55% of your magical power)  Bullet.png Kappa Damage Per Hit: 35/45/55/65/75
 Bullet.png Kappa Health: 25/30/35/40/45 (+20% of your maximum health)  Bullet.png Slow: 20%
 Bullet.png Slow Duration: 3s  Bullet.png Ability Type: Pet
 Bullet.png Range: 70  Bullet.png Cooldown: 16 seconds
 Bullet.png Cost: 70/75/80/85/90 mana

Ability Video

2nd Ability - Shell Spikes
The spikes on Kuzenbo's back extend out, damaging enemies who attack Kuzenbo. While active, each time Kuzenbo takes damage, the cooldown on NeNe Kappa and Sumo Slam is reduced. Kuzenbo may activate this ability even while under the effects of Crowd Control. Notes:
 Bullet.png % of Damage Taken: 10/15/20/25/30%  Bullet.png Cooldown Per Hit: .5/.7/.9/1.1/1.3s
 Bullet.png Duration: 3s  Bullet.png Ability Type: Buff
 Bullet.png Cooldown: 14/13.5/13/12.5/12 seconds  Bullet.png Cost: 50 mana

Ability Video

3rd Ability - Sumo Slam
Kuzenbo charges forward, immune to slows, damaging Enemy minions and silencing using his immense strength to push the first Enemy God he hits along with him. Each subsequent Enemy he hits deals damage to both that Enemy and the god Kuzenbo is pushing. Colliding with a wall will also deal damage to the pushed god. Pushed targets can be hit a maximum of 3 times. Notes:
 Bullet.png Only the first wall collision will deal damage.
 Bullet.png Damage Per Hit: 80/110/140/170/200 (+35% of your magical power)  Bullet.png Ability Type: Dash
 Bullet.png Cooldown: 12 seconds  Bullet.png Cost: 60/65/70/75/80 mana

Ability Video

Ultimate - Watery Grave
Kuzenbo pulls himself inwards under his shell and spins, summoning fierce currents that knock enemies back, increase his movement speed, and allow him to move freely in all directions for 2.1s. Damage after the first spin is reduced by 50%. Notes:
 Bullet.png The time between each hit is 0.6s.
 Bullet.png Damage First Hit: 80/130/180/230/280 (+40% of your magical power)  Bullet.png Damage Per Hit: 40/65/90/115/140 (+20% of your magical power)
