You think you can avoid my kick attack? How about you try to catch the shadow first.

One reason for the lack of development in male fighting, has been Shannon Myre's strict females-only policy. Existing fighting styles of Arad were specifically modified to fit a woman's physique, and because of these factors, few male fighters sought to modify their style to fit them.

Thus, a new style of attacking rapidly with kicks, after closing the distance against their enemy was born. This was done to show the uniqueness of the male form, as a rebuttal of Shannon Myre's policy. Whatever the motive, this style became extremely popular among the continent's male fighters, and more people experimented, and trained hard to develop what they call the art of Striking.

At first, female fighters did not approve of this style of fighting. They considered this style an "ignorant technique". They saw it as a simple straight-forward charging, without any strategy whatsoever. Eventually, the two factions were involved in a great physical conflict, and the male strikers were forced to leave Suju. They then gathered and hit into the mountains, but this only lead to the prosperity of the male fighter training center out in the mountains. When the male fighters were given the opportunity to refine their fighting styles, their techniques improved rapidly.

While female fighting is based on fundamental physical training to maneuver in a calm manner, male fighting, with a much shorter history, appears to lack any method. Although this may appear foolish, because of their explosive power, Male Strikers are often summoned, to defeat enemies that the female fighters cannot defeat.

The male fighters often use this as an example as to why they do not put much value into any one form of fighting.

The Male Striker is a powerful opponent who is a specialist at kicks, other than his female counterpart who specializes in punches and doesn't kick as much. With his kicks faster than any of the other subclasses, he is able to devastate an opponent with ultra-powerful kicks, helping them meet their demise. Attacks mostly with his feet. Pushes out enemies with powerful kicks and approaches quickly for consecutive attacks.

  • At level 50, the Striker awakens as a Dragon Fist then at level 75, the Dragon Fist awakens as a Tyrant.
  • His subclass cosmetic effect are bandages wrapped around his arms.
  • His 2nd Awakening cosmetic effect is a fiery aura that flares up around him.
  • His Neo Awakening cosmetic effect is the striker preparing and throwing a burning punch.

Becoming a Striker

The Male Fighter must first reach level 15.

  1. Talk to Blacksmith Linus in Elvenguard.
  2. Clear Full Moon Thunderland.

Awakening as a Dragon Fist

One who simply sets limits will never reach them...

Martial Arts have no conclusion.

The human body has infinite potential. As you continue training though, your previous limits are surpassed.

Much like the talons of a dragon, from birth to adulthood. Born with tender claws of cartilage, they see a continuous progression, gradually growing stronger and more fierce with every year they live. The Dragon Claw never stops growing.

This is the name we have chosen for ourselves.

We chose this name to represent our resilience, our endless progression and always improving knowledge of skills and techniques.

For the most important values of what life has to offer are not obtained upon reaching any goal, but during the process you must endure to reach that goal. One who simply sets limits will never reach them. Upon reaching a pinnacle, know that there will always be a new one waiting for you.

You never have the leisure of striving towards the limits someone else established.

Devoting everything within me to train for the sake of stretching my testability further as I approach new levels of ability...

That is the meaning of my life.

The Male Striker must first reach level 50.

Awakening as a Tyrant

Why are you standing in my way? Perhaps a Death wish?

What is the 'limit'? For whom was these shackles made for?

If you have to get over it, why do you have to obsess over it?

Do not presume; the moment you name it, the infinite degrades to the finite.

If you have no arms, using legs; if you have no body, using determination

Break through the cast suffocating you and move forward.

The point that nobody has ever seen. Finally got to the point by completing myself.

I have broken through this point, the "limit".

The Dragon Fist must first reach level 75.

  1. Talk to Siran in the City of Shonan.
  2. Collect 60 Seal of Empress Skardi.png Seal of Empress Skardi.
  3. Clear EX: Gold Dragon Tournament.
  4. Collect 150 Seal of Emperor Helm.png Seal of Emperor Helm.
  5. Clear EX: Silver Dragon Tournament.
  6. Clear Tainted Time Gate.

Awakening as a Neo: Striker

Drunk on victory for so long, I could not see how broken I was.
Only after an overwhelming loss I could see my pathetic shape.
My strength was my recklessness of not sparing my body
But what are these lukewarm flames.
My talent was the freedom of questioning those who looked down on me for following a false path
What are these rigid movements fixated on rules.

It's so shameful, I can't raise my head.
My fighting spirit ran cold.
The flame I clad died out.

And only when I started to think all the fires had died out
I could feel the one thing that had not changed even after everything had changed.
The heat of my beating heart.

I remembered the day I started calling myself a striker.
I remembered my recklessness of standing victorious with a scarred body.
I remembered my true self.
The flames of my heart instantly erupted across my body and out of it.

I don't care if you call me a fool.
A fool is who I've always been.
I don't care if you call me unsightly.
I’ve never walked on this path for any of you.

Strike with my everything, even if it’s just once.
Throw the strike of my everything twice, thrice, over and over.
This combo will become a single strike that will set all ablaze,
The ever eternal flame that will incinerate everything.

The Tyrant must first reach level 100.

Subclass Inspiration

  • Like his female counterpart, the Male Striker's theme is also based around Kickboxing, with the motif being more specifically Taekwondo & Jeet Kune Do since he emphasises on kicking-based attacks.
  • Despite having fire effects in several of his skills, he doesn't actually inflict Fire Damage Boost.png Fire Element itself unless optionally given the choice.


  • In the Nexon-DFO localization, his previous title was called Dragon Claw.
  • The Global First Awakening Dragon Fist might be a reference to a 1979 martial arts film of the same name.
  • His Global Second Awakening Tyrant, refers to an absolute ruler who is unrestrained by law, or one who has usurped a legitimate ruler's sovereignty.
    • The Dragon Knight would also use this for her Korean Second Awakening, yet was swapped over to differentiate the two.
