How to earn: Reward for winning fights, trading duplicate cartridges, achievement rewards
Where to use: Enhancing the mastery of specific fighters
The mastery points are used to enhance a specific fighter’s stats — an enhancing content, fighter mastery. For example, the mastery points for Ryo can only be used to enhance Ryo’s mastery.
To earn mastery points, you need to gain the cartridges of that specific fighter and open the mastery. If you win fights with a fighter whose mastery is open, you gain mastery points for that fighter. When you use special stamina, you gain more. From mastery point random boxes, you can also gain mastery points for a fighter whose cartridge you haven’t gained yet, but you can only use those points after opening the specific fighter’s cartridge.
If you gain a cartridge of a fighter whose mastery is already open, you can exchange it with 5,000 mastery points. Mastery points can also be gained as a reward for reaching some achievements.

Where to use: Enhancing cube mastery
The master keys that can be earned through winning in fights can be used to enhance your cube mastery. Cube mastery is opened when the total accumulation of your fighter mastery levels is at least 100. This gives a bonus in ATK, DEF, and HP for all the fighters whose mastery is opened. There is a success chance for enhancing cube mastery, and when the enhancement fails, one level decreases.
