Levi is one of the more fun characters to use, than say nanoha or signum.
Both of them are so good they only use one combo ever, and it's boring as hell to do over and over.

Funnily enough, I fine Levi better than Fate, and the bind is so useful...
Levi is the ultimate!

No one wants --or has ever suggested-- that Yuuno should NOT work as a librarian and archaeologist. That's what we all want for him.

But that should never be the only thing he becomes.

And the idea that he can't fight as well as Nanoha is a ridiculous reason to avoid fighting. There are hundreds of mage soldiers weaker than Nanoha who continue to head into the field of combat, and Yuuno has repeatedly shown that he will do the same even against superior opposition.

And as tiresome as it gets to repeat: All comparisons and evaluations of Yuuno's demonstrated power must take into account that he doesn't even have the most basic of Devices to boost his power, let alone elite machines or even multiple Devices or Unison Devices like the others have.

I mean, Zafira's the most obvious choice, but seeing Yuuno in the game, it makes one think a little bit.
Maybe she started learning strike arts because of Yuuno, but decided that Zafira's style was more her speed?

But as someone else suggested, she seems to draw a number of elements from her various parents and teachers, forming a unique mix that works best for her.

She is learning Strike Arts from Subaru and Nove, from Nove more than Subaru. Zafira is teach a Counter-based style which is similiar to Einhart's battle style in the game. Strike Arts is an Offensive style. Zafira's is a defensive style.

She did NOT get the idea to be a Strike Arts user because of Yuuno as he is not a Strike Arts user himself, he is a traditional styled Midchilda mage. In the StrikerS anime, when she fought against Nanoha as the Saint Kaiser during the whole Jail incident, you will see that she has the battle type that is basically a Strike Arts User at the near end. Thus why her 'adult form' is like her Saint Kaiser. She has shown great proficiency in that style, this is also because of her bloodline and who she is from in ancient history of the series.

After being rescued by Nanoha and the others, she developed great interested in the Strike Arts that Subaru and Nove use. Nove is by technicality one of her main teachers or tutors or sparring partners. There are some things that are mixed with her style such as her usage of the Divine Buster which is a variant created by Subaru which is in a way emulating Subaru's admiration of Nanoha, which this variant is later inherited by Vivio. Binds are one of Nanoha's specialities which she learns from Nanoha.

Strike Arts is a form of Modern Belkan magic and can also be mixed with Midchila magic, but is needed to be mixed with hand to hand combat martial arts. To date based on the series and canon. Subaru, Ginga and Nove are the only Strike Arts users that are mentioned.

-----------------------------

Before asking questions, making speculations, or making statements made from misinformation. Please watch all the anime series and read all available translated manga to understand the series correctly and get the correct information.

While not specifically steated. It's implied that Zafira is also a practicioner of Strike Arts due to the fact that he is Miura's trainer who uses Striker Arts as her style and also seems to exchange opinions and advices with Nove as also the implications that the wolf and the cybor have sparred sometimes.

This is also true, but Strike Arts is offensive in nature in it's battle style. Zafira uses a more counter based style. He isn't the Shielding Guardian Beast otherwise.

Vivio is also a counter-specialist and is considered a Strike Arts practicioner xD.

Also, practicing Strike Arts doesn't mean you must take them as your primary style xD

Is Zafira's style something like: Yagami style fighting arts or something?

Her specialty is counters, but she is a Strike Arts user because of Nove and Subaru. The counters are more instinctive to her.

Even though that itself is true, however in this series, it is the primary style for Subaru, Nove, and Vivio.

The main point that I've been trying to make for the last number of times because of some people: is that Yuuno IS NOT a user of Strike Arts because of two reasons listed below. Nor does he inspire any idea of learning Strike Arts with Vivio.

1. Strike Arts requires MODERN BELKAN magic, possibly minoring in Midchilda magic, and knowing martial arts.

2. Yuuno is a traditional Midchilda mage that specializes in binds, heals, defense, and support magics. The opposite of Strike Arts, which is a offensive style.

Ah it's a kind of Japanese joke on his character. In terms of character Zafira is like heavily the manly samurai type. So he'll wear a fundoshi. Also that is a swimsuit costume for the game that you unlock.

Yep, that's from the trailer.

Vivio makes comments how Zafira is being too dangerous wearing that kind of thing when she is narrating the 2nd game trailer while she is explaining game mechanics.

I think it's either this trailer or the first one that is one the special dvd.
