  • Audition – Accommodate the requests of the “judges” by appearing in programs and events in which multiple idol units participate.
  • Fes – The rivals competition stage! Get the fans more excited than your rivals to win.

  • Memories Drive – A skill that adds to the number of participating members and significantly ups the amount of Synchro Gauge increase when making consecutive memory appeals.
  • Unison Charge – A skill that can generate a Unison Appeal effect for multiple members by expending memories.
  • Unison Counter – A skill effective during Fes performances that cancels out your rivals’ Unison Appeal and invokes your own Unison Appeal.
