Special Features

Auto-attacks appear to be Dark elemental.
Shantotto will hold TP (to an extent) and attempt to close skillchains whenever possible.
Shantotto only uses tier 1 spells; however, she possesses extremely high Magic Damage+ and MAB.
Shantotto's tier 1 magic spells are comparable in power to spells appropriate to her actual level.
As a result of only using tier 1 magic she will almost never run out of MP regardless of the duration of a battle.
Shantotto will magic burst any skillchains, and she often double bursts for massive damage in a very short period of time.
Due to all of these factors Shantotto is widely regarded as the absolute best trust available for magic damage and magic bursting.
However, she has relatively low HP and defenses making her very fragile and susceptible to dying from enemy AoE attacks.

Trust Synergy

The King of Hearts uses the full range of his enhancing spells on Shantotto or Shantotto II in the same way as on himself and his player and even prioritizes her over the player and himself. Just one version of Shantotto can be called at the same time.
