Clear Rewards


A new variant of one of the most beloved villains in the Dragon Ball series, the fan-favorite - Goku Black, is back. This time shares some similarities with his best buddy SP Zamasu RED in the Defense department, while also growing more familiar with possessed Goku’s body, picking up the near-death powering up technique that Saiyans are well known for.


The Best Defense

His very high base Strike and Blast Defense stats, coupled with Cover that reduces received damage by half, Health restoration after end of Enemy Combo and his self-Healing Extra Move make him a very tanky Fighter that won’t go down easily.

Is a Good Offense

His Unique Ability ‘This pain will make me stronger!’ certainly lives up to its name. After each Enemy Combo on SP Goku Black PUR (not only after a Cover Change), he receives a whooping 50% Damage Inflicted Buff that can be stacked multiple times.

This ability, together with permanent Strike and Blast Damage Buffs from his Extra Move and additional Damage Inflicted provided by his Main Ability, can potentially ramp up to absurd amounts if played right, making him a high Damage Dealer on top of his great Defensive capabilities. This is further amplified by his second Unique Ability that makes him deal even more damage vs Saiyans.


High Risk, High Reward

While his Damage Buffs can potentially stack up quickly, he needs to get hit first in order to receive his primary Damage Inflicted Buff. This can be played around by skilled players, and also expose him to high Health loss combos or Rising Rush by Enemy Fighter.

Stats Distribution

SP Goku Black PUR has one of the best Defenses in the game, but his base Strike and Blast Attack stats are rather subpar, making him rely very heavily on amassing Damage Buffs from either his own or his Teammate's Support Abilities.

Team Synergy


Being the only Tag he Buffs with his Z Ability, SP Goku Black PUR has couple great Teammate options here. Paired together with SP Zamasu RED and SP Mai GRN, they can form a highly Defensive Team with multiple Healing sources, while someone like SP Gohan GRN will add more Offensive power, especially when matched against Androids.


SP Goku Black PUR is a strange fit on standard Saiyan Tag Team builds, but he can function as a powerful defensive pivot and Rising Rush soaker if the standard Purple Saiyan options are unavailable. The biggest factor holding SP Goku Black PUR back on this Tag is his Z-ability, which solely boosts Future Fighters. Despite this setback, SP Goku Black PUR pairs well with strong Red and Blue Saiyans, like SP GT Goku RED and SP Angry Goku BLU
