Warning: This page contains spoilers that can spoil your experience for the Patapon games.
In Patapon 3, instead of having many kinds of units like previous games, you have the four basic Units, known as Ton, Chin and Kan and, of course, your Uberhero. This means you can only have one of each, but to make up for having a very small army, a new feature has been added. In this feature, you gain Experience Points by defeating enemies, when you gain a specific amount of experience points you level up and you have to gain even more experience points than last time to level up again. This means that even though you have one unit of each kind, they can still be worth the six units you could use in previous installments. This feature replaces the previous Evolution Map system featured in Patapon 2.
Main Article: Hatapon
Hatapon is the first Patapon that you encounter in all three Patapon games. He is the flag bearer, and functions to hold the army together and leads them but doesn't attack himself. He holds the Patapon banner with an owl on the top. He has 200 hitpoints. His death results in mission failure. He is also the most important Patapon in your army, given ability to lead the army. The ChakaChaka song doesn't give him a defensive boost, but status effects don't affect him. "Hata" (旗) means "flag" or "banner" in Japanese. It's mostly a banner or a mark. In Patapon 3, you will develop a skill called 'Lifelink', which will make him invincible, even when he gets eaten up as long as you have a Shield-based unit in your army.
Ton the YariponEditMain Articles: Yaripon / Ton
Ton is the Patapon that throws spears. They are the initial unit type given to the player to control in both Patapon and Patapon 2 but in Patapon 3, you are given Ton the Legendary Yaripon disciple of Yarida. He is useful for both hunting and fighting. Ton's Fever attack is a jumping spear throw that greatly increases the distance of the projectile while avoiding many enemy attacks. Yari (槍) means "spear" in Japanese. They are also moderately resistant to fire and sleep attacks.
Chin The TateponEditMain Article: Tatepon / Chin
Chin is the Patapon that is equipped with axes/swords and shields. He is primarily a melee fighter and also the disciple of Taterazay and can transform into all the Taterazay-based units. He is utterly useless while hunting, as Chin's attack range is negligible at best and his approach scares off prey. Chin the Tatepon is very good at defense, as his shield can protect the entire army from enemy attack. While in Fever Mode, his shield increases in size and provides better protection. "Tate" (盾) means "shield" in Japanese.
Kan the YumiponEditMain Article: Yumipon /Kan
Kan is the bow-wielding Patapon and is the disciple of Yumiyacha. Consquently, he can become all the Yumiyacha-based units. This Patapon has the largest attack range in the game (wind can increase and decrease the range of his attack depending on which way it is blowing), nagating the fact that He's placed in the back of any army. While Kan is extremely effective and can rain down arrows on enemies from afar, he is vulnerable to fire. While in Fever Mode, Kan fires three arrows in rapid succession. "Yumi" ( 弓) means "bow" in Japanese.
