Another Lord Slug variant arrives and this time as an Extreme rarity variant that almost dethrones his Sparking rarity variant in terms of Power Level, although deceptively so since most of his stats are lower except for Critical--which holds more value in the game’s power level calculation.
EX Lord Slug YEL's toolkit is just as powerful but not nearly as consistent as SP Lord Slug BLU's and despite being labeled as a Defensive Fighter, he is more of a Jack of All Trades but Master of None.
This Fighter performs very well for the initial few counts after being switched in, primarily due to his 40% Damage Buff and 50% increased Vanishing Gauge Recovery. The good thing here is that these two Buffs work well hand-in-hand since the Gauge Recovery helps dodge multiple attacks and keeps the Damage Buff from going away.
The only reason EX Lord Slug YEL is labeled as a Defense Fighter is because of his Z-Ability. The rest of his toolkit is Offensive and Supportive but doesn't excel in either department. The former isn’t very long-lasting and the latter isn't very substantial.
SP Perfect Cell YEL is still the Yellow Fighter to beat here but if he is missing, taking EX Lord Slug YEL into battle isn’t a bad choice. He can also be used alongside SP Perfect Cell YEL against Teams that lack a Red Fighter. Other than that his spot lies on the bench, Buffing his Teammates’ Defenses.
He has exceptionally high Defenses and Health for an EX Rarity Fighter.
His Unique Ability enables him to do a lot of Damage to boot, at least until he’s attacked.
EX Lord Slug YEL joins the recent influx of incredibly strong EX Rarity Fighters that can compete with some of the better Fighters in the entire game. While they remain difficult to pull consistently, they perform admirably if acquired.
EX Lord Slug YEL, in particular, is incredibly durable and has some decent Damage and card-destruction utility to go along with it, but has trouble making the core whenSP Perfect Cell YEL is the vastly superior option. His Z-Ability is also held by multiple other Regeneration Fighters.
