Although Japanese Black Bear competes for the role of Wonder-Radiance Power-Up Assault Friend with much stronger options such as Lion and Scarlet Macaw, and is generally unable to perform on par with their damage output and stamina, she does have an edge: her Combo with Golden Snub-Nosed Monkey, who is an extremely adept supporting Friend for Leaf-centric teams, gives her a degree of viability. This makes her Japanese Black Bear a very powerful option in the early game, being one of the strongest offensively-oriented 4-Star Friends when supported by Golden Snub-Nosd Monkey.

As a player progresses, Japanese Black Bear is almost entirely outclassed by the aforementioned Scarlet Macaw, who has a Combo with the powerful Caracal, whose supportive Miracle effect has great synergy with Golden Snub-Nosed Monkey's. In turn, Scarlet Macaw can struggle to match the performance of Friends such as Mountain Hare, leaving no room for Japanese Black Bear in the scheme of later stages of gameplay.



Bugs and Issues

  • At the time of the game's launch, Japanese Black Bear was erroneously referred to as Asian Black Bear in translated text, even though her voice-acted dialogue correctly referred to her as Japanese Black Bear. While the Japanese black bear is a subspecies of the Asian black bear, it is not quite correct to refer to it as such instead of the subspecies' name, nor is it the Kemono Friends character's name. This issue was fixed in a September 2023 patch, where all instances of "Asian Black Bear" were changed to read "Japanese Black Bear".
