Mode 1 is indeed fragile.
Its a giant, and once that shield pops and you don't purge you're pretty much good as dead.
Also, a Reborns range sp with skill 2 activated can kill a Alvatore that just spawned o..o
My Zeta's Waverider Crash can almost kill in from the front. I've rammed Andy's SR Dendrobium mode 2 numerous times from the front and it only takes off 1/2 of the hp.
Why I'm comparing dendro is that Dendro has decent defence but it's a paper; Alvatore ends up taking more damage even though its a scissor.

He mans Veteran Infighter, because the skill icon is a shield blocking the paper icon, hence "paper defense".
