Koleda – Zenless Zone Zero

Zenless Zone Zero's Koleda is the fiery, red-headed president of Belabog Heavy Industries, and she's here to solve your problems with a swing of her hammer.

Zenless Zone Zero’s Koleda Belobog is the feisty young president of Belobog Heavy Industries, and always strives to lead by example – and by the big, explosive strikes she deals with her hammer, of course. So let’s take a look at this redheaded livewire, as we pull the pin on ZZZ Koleda’s build, identity, attack type, and more.

If you want to know how Koleda sizes up against the other Zenless Zone Zero characters, be sure to keep an eye on our Zenless Zone Zero tier list. We’ve also got a list of all the new Zenless Zone Zero codes and Zenless Zone Zero events so you can save up plenty of cash to pull on the next Zenless Zone Zero banner.

Here’s everything you need to know about Zenless Zone Zero’s Koleda.

What’s the best Koleda build?

Koleda’s attack type is strike, and she deals a mixture of fire and physical damage with her hammer. The fire damage she dishes out accumulates the fire attribute anomaly, which triggers the burn effect, dealing continuous fire damage to the enemy.

Koleda’s kit revolves around a lot of heavy hammer hits and AoE explosions. She’s a little slower than characters like Zenless Zone Zero’s Nekomata and Zenless Zone Zero’s Billy, but, in exchange, her heavy-hitting attacks are great for building up daze and stunning enemies.

We highly recommend putting Koleda on a squad with Zenless Zone Zero’s Ben, as there are two main benefits to keeping this duo together.

Firstly, Ben is also a fire strike character, therefore they activate each other’s additional abilities, meaning Koleda deals more burn damage with her EX special attack, and she inflicts 15% more daze when she deals fire damage when he’s on her team.

The other reason to keep Ben and Koleda on the same squad is because they can team up together to launch coordinated attacks, further increasing their power. This is currently a mechanic entirely unique to these two, and results in some very fun and powerful moves.

What’s the best W-engine for Koleda?

The best W-engine for Koleda is the S-rank Hellfire Gears, as it’s tailored specifically to her kit, boosting her fire damage and impact.

Beyond that, we’re still crunching numbers and working out the best options, though we do have some initial recommendations. The A-rank Precious Fossilized Core is a good option, as it boosts the amount of daze that Koleda dishes out. Or, if you’re looking for a B-rank option, we recommend [Vortex] Revolver, which also increases both her impact and daze.

W-engine Effect
Hellfire Gears Skill: increases fire damage by 25%. Increases impact by 15% when the wearer uses an EX special attack, stacking up to three times and lasting six seconds. Each stack’s duration is calculated separately
Precious Fossilized Core Bonus stat: impact
Skill: attacks against enemies with above or equal to 70% HP inflict 15% more daze
[Vortex] Revolver Bonus stat: impact
Skill: basic attacks inflict more daze

What are the best disc drives for Koleda?

Like her w-engines, we’re still testing out different disc drive sets to see which are best for Koleda. However, we do have some current recommendations.

Firstly, if you’ve got the Bardic Needle to a high enough level to unlock the S-rank disc drives, Inferno Metal is a great option for Koleda. Its two-piece effect increases her fire damage, and the four piece bonus increases her attack upon hitting a burnt enemy.

Shockstar Disco is another strong choice, increasing her impact with its two-piece bonus and boosting the entire squad’s attack when an enemy is stunned (just keep in mind that the four-piece effect doesn’t stack, so you should only have one character equipped with this set on a squad). You can also choose to mix the two, either pairing up four pieces of Inferno Metal and two pieces with Shockstar Disco, or vice versa.

If you’re looking for something to tide you over earlier in the game, we recommend a full set of either Vagabond Folk or Unicorn Electro, both of which boosts her impact and Daze.

Like the S-tier sets, you can also mix these two, equipping her with a four-piece set of one and a two piece set of the other, to really amp up her impact.

Alternatively, you can go with a four piece set of either Unicorn Electro or Vagabond Folk and combine with with two pieces of an attack set like Assassin’s Ballad or Noisy Pop, or two pieces of Monsoon Funk to boost her attribute mastery, helping her inflict burn quicker.

Disc drive Effect
Inferno Metal Two equipped: increases fire damage by 10%
Four equipped: upon hitting a burnt enemy, increases attack by 40% for six seconds
Shockstar Disco Two equipped: increases impact by 6%
Four equipped: when an enemy is stunned, the entire squad’s attack increases by 20% for ten seconds. This effect can trigger once every 15 seconds and does not stack
Vagabond Folk Two equipped: increases impact by 6%
Four equipped: increases daze cause by dodge counters, EX special attacks, and assist attacks by 16%
Unicorn Electro Two equipped: increases impact by 6%
Four equipped: increases the daze inflicted by the wearer’s attacks by 6%
Assassin’s Ballad/Noisy Pop Two equipped: increases attack by 10%
Monsoon Funk Two equipped: increases attribute mastery by 20

Who is Zenless Zone Zero’s Koleda?

Koleda Belobog is the president of Belobog Heavy Industries, who works alongside onsite project manager Zenless Zone Zero’s Anton to get the job done. Other Belobog Heavy Industries characters include Zenless Zone Zero’s Ben and Grace Howard, and their slogan is ‘Our goal is not to build a house, but a home’.

Koleda’s fierceness reaches beyond her strong, ‘lead-by-example’ attitude while working out in the field – and, while she may be small, she can certainly wield that big ol’ hammer of hers. However, despite her fiery and mature nature, she’s still quite young and does have a more childish side to her. Luckily, her close-knit team doesn’t mind taking care of her sometimes.

If you’re familiar with Hoyoverse’s other games, you may recognize Koleda’s surname as a city on the Honkai Star Rail map. When we asked producer Zhenyu Li about this in our Zenless Zone Zero interview at Gamescom, he told us that it’s actually just a coincidence – however, we’re still suspicious that this is at least a nod to those of us dreaming up a Hoyo expanded universe!

Who are Koleda’s voice actors?

Koleda’s CN voice actor is Mu Xueting, who you may recognize as the voice of Genshin Impact’s Bennett or Honkai Star Rail’s Serval. Koleda’s JP voice actor is Iguchi Yuka, who also plays Lucy in Rune Factory 5, Hibiscus and Saria in Arknights, Glaciela Wezette from Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, and many more iconic roles.

We don’t know who Koleda’s English voice actor is just yet, but we’ll be sure to update this section when we find out.

That’s everything we’ve got on Zenless Zone Zero’s Koleda for now.
