Overview

 
EX Krillin PUR is more powerful than you might expect from someone so prone to getting impaled and exploded! Despite only having a single Team, EX Krillin PUR asserts himself as a fantastic Support Fighter for it, offering Offensive Support by acting as a Ki battery for his Allies. 

Krillin has a number of tools at his disposal that let him dictate the tempo of the bout, with his Special Arts Card stunning the opponent at long range and his Main Ability shortening his Allies’ Substitution Counts on command.

He makes for a fantastic sacrificial lamb in the face of an impending Rising Rush or Ultimate Arts Card, as his death inspires his Allies with helpful Offensive Buffs through his Defeated Ability.
 

Strengths

Masterful Support

The name of EX Krillin PUR’s first Unique Ability describes his impact on the game as concisely as possible - he brings Masterful Support. By restoring Ki and providing Damage Inflicted Buffs to any Ally he Switches into, Krillin lets his teammates outpace their enemies.

Even when he does what he does best, die, he continues to Support his Allies from beyond the grave with even more Buffs. Goku characters benefit from even more Damage Inflicted Buffs when Krillin falls, leading to world-ending Special Move Arts Damage potential. 

Don't Blink

Krillin’s signature Special Arts Card, Solar Flare, makes him more annoying to challenge head on than his meager stats suggest.

Long range immobilizing Special Arts cards are powerful enough on their own, but when Krillin begins a combo with Solar Flare and switches out, the ally entering the battlefield will receive Damage Buffs and Ki, leading to devastating Combos. 

Weaknesses

J-Just Don't Expect Me to Win, Okay?

EX Krillin PUR’s Support-centric design makes him utterly useless when he has no Allies to assist. Anyone running Krillin should be throwing him in harm’s way often, because none of his Abilities are particularly conducive to Crisis scenarios. 

Though the Solar Flare can occasionally net Combos for the strongest Earthling, he lacks the Offensive presence to see Fights through.

His True Home is on Namek

Outside of the Frieza Saga Team, EX Krillin PUR lacks Team application.

His Dual Offensive Z Ability lets him work as Bench assistance to certain Teams that share his single meaningful Tag, but he’s utterly useless in combat on non-Frieza Saga Teams. 

Team Synergy

Frieza Saga (Z)

EX Krillin PUR’s true home is on the Frieza Saga Team, assisting his best friend, SP Angry Goku BLU, with Damage Buffs and Special Move Arts draws. The fact that Krillin explicitly gives additional death Buffs to Goku variants is no coincidence - these two Fighters were designed to be used together.

The Frieza Saga Tag Team can round out its roster with SP Full Power Frieza YEL, a Fighter that restores a staggering 80 Ki when Krillin switches into him. Zenkai 1 SP SSJ Goku RED specifically synergizes with Krillin variants, and if Krillin dies, Goku becomes an absolute monster.

This Team might not boast stellar synergy outside of combat, but its Damage output and internal synergy ranks among the best in the game’s history.
