People are saying that he is completely outperformed by Sanaki. I don’t see how arvis can be inferior, at the very least he should have a winning matchup against Sigurd.

He has his own niche as a debuffer and the SPD he has over Sanaki helps on certain matchups. He isn't bad-- especially if you don't have Sanaki or a 5* Lilina-- but he can be outperformed in terms of fighting power.

He’s basically red Sonya, I don’t see people crying about her being bad or D tier or whatever.

^this. In fact, Sonya is a little bit overrated on this board just because she counters Reinhardt. She is good though, just not on par with Nino (especially with DD3 or Deflect magic 3 seals available).

Anyways, Arvis is going to be useful for anyone that doesn't have a good red res tank like Sanaki or Lilina since his stats are good for that. Yeah, red res tanks can't tank Reinhardt; whatever, reds should never try to tank him anyways. He'll be good for arena assault when you need to delete a green mage like Cecilia, Nino, or whatever. He should be able to take care of CYL Ike and Hector just fine too.

Given the extreme quality of prf weapons being handed out (Amiti, Alondite, Ayra's Sword, Divine Tyrfing), Valflame is incredibly underwhelming is why I'm sad.

TC, this is why I think Arvis will be a very strong unit.

And no, he is not a red Sonya. Sonya only Ploy res which isn't too big of a deal. Arvis can Ploy 3 stats, making you want to play around him and IF A Spd Ploy seal is released, he'll be very dangerous. He can also play a better falchion healer thanks to his B skill. Sonya only beats him in the damage department.

^ People compare him to Sonya because he's actually closer to her than Sanaki stat-wise, even if he's basically a +SPD -ATK Sanaki. So in that sense, yes, he is a red Sonya. His ability to debuff everything with Valflame is definitely what's setting him apart from everyone else, however.

Oh, is that so... well they don't play similar roles though. Sonya is like your assassin unit with the wo dao effect killing people. Arvis is like he's built to be a support unit with very good offensive spreads too.

It's funny, when units come really good people cry power creep; but when they're decent and comparable to the rest of the cast (in this case, Sanaki) then they cry that he's trash :p
