One tip concerning what special attacks to use.

I found it best to equip everyone with whatever had the highest hits (such as Deadly Orbit with Salsa, 17 hits) because during a Harmony Chain, you'll get your Echoes back up to the point where on your next character's turn, you can go right into another Harmony Chain. The damage that builds from stringing Harmony Chains together like that is ridiculous and key for beating tough enemies such as the bosses in the Mysterious Union.

Even using characters that get "double hits" during normal attacks helps quite a bit, like Salsa and Jazz. Using someone fast like Falsetto is also a good idea. Viola is pretty much a must-have though for Heal Arrow.

Useful information there. I'll be sure to level up my characters accordingly in order to make the most of them.

At Party Level 5 and 6 (with 1.5X moving speed), Jazz typically gets a max of 12 hits when running up to the enemy. That's MAX, whereas a lag in moving will get 10 hits. Falsetto also typically gets 12 hits. By floor 11 in Mysterious Unison, Falsetto can increase the combo rate with a pair of gloves that give her a total of 24 hits (the only other character with an increased combo rate weapon is Claves, that I know of). Coupled with her awesome speed and brutal power, Falsetto is hard to beat.

I just started Encore, so I can't check, but I believe March is capable of higher combos than her sister. She'll likely be my third character after Chapter 6 in Encore (Falsetto and Jazz being the first two).

I've noticed something in the last few boss fights in Mysterious Unison and the last boss, in that I couldn't always start a 32-hit strength 6 Harmonious Chain multiple times in a row. Since Falsetto could chain up to 24 by herself, I was nearly always at 32 hits after a 6 length Harmonious Chain, but it wouldn't always "connect" the second time around. Not sure if it's a glitch or a deliberate mechanism to prevent abuse from the overpowered Harmonious Chains, but I simply couldn't usually pull off two 6 length Harmonious Chains back to back. I had to build up the hits again (after draining them when the Harmonious Chain didn't start) to start another chain.

Gold is so trivially easy to make in this game, I can't remotely recommend Viola late in the game. The power of her bow from a distance is usurped by the time other characters start getting big combos and healing is a trivial task. Beat can make enough gold from photos in the first few boss fights to last the rest of the game. Do yourself a favor and buy 99 of whatever the best healing item is so you can pull out the heavy hitters and not the heavy healers. Remember - the faster the enemy goes down, the less you get hit.

Lastly, unless this is my imagination, moves like Death Chasm and Dimensional Turn can kill enemies before their HP is fully expended otherwise. It can be useful as the second moves for a Harmonious Chain for a single character, as after the first combo, the Death Chasm and Dimensional Turn will often kill the enemies. I noticed this particularly with the 3 million gold enemies on the 11th and 12th floors of Mysterious Unison, which have a lot of HP for a regular monster.
