—Battle Style

Gintama Rumble

In addition to gun-based attacks, Tatsuma can fight at mid-range with his unique, tricky movements. Although his attacks are unique, since they are straightforward, you can unleash stylish gun combos once you get the hang of them. However, other than his defense power, his stats are overall low, so do not get overconfident.
