Speed(スピード) is a stat in Nage Libre Seijaku no Suishin. The speed of the card, slow versus fast, determines who will attack first during a battle. If fast Cards are chosen by a character that has fast speed, it is nearly guaranteed your character will strike first. A notable character who has very high speed is Mai. She has the highest speed and will remain the fastest throughout the game. It also effects how well the Escape Card will work.
