Overview

SP Goku Black YEL was an excellent Ranged Fighter at the time of his release, whose 30% Damage to Saiyans and Hybrid Saiyans made him a popular anti-Meta pick. Once the Future Tag he Supported came into its own, he fell out of favor as more powerful Yellow Fighters became common, like SP Perfect Cell YEL and SP SSJ Gohan YEL. The Zenkai Awakening system promised to return him to his former glory, or at least increase his viability enough to warrant core usage on Future Tag Teams, and it did.

Zenkai 1 SP Goku Black YEL has a rather unassuming toolkit at first glance. While his toolkit was barely updated, his new Zenkai Stats are the main attraction here - not only has he become Future's highest power-level Fighter, his Blast Damage output can be overwhelming in the right conditions. Even though much of his Damage output is dependent on the match-up, his Zenkai Buff allows him to function as a powerful Bench Fighter for the Future Tag.

The most notable new addition to Zenkai 1 SP Goku Black YEL's arsenal is his Crisis Utility, which is unique in that it works in two ways. He gets Damage Buffs per fallen Ally and Enemy, making him one of the most overall Damaging late-game Fighters in the right match-up. When this Crisis Utility is active alongside the Buffs he gets from his Extra Arts Card, which are more significant the further into the match it gets, his Damage can be downright sinful. 

Outside of these aspects of his Kit and the situational Healing provided by his Main Ability, Zenkai 1 SP Goku Black YEL also boasts the terrifying Ability to significantly augment his Blast Damage whenever he defeats an opponent. Post-Zenkai Awakening, Goku Black is definitely strong enough to hold his own and advance his sinister agenda. 

Strengths

Whirlwind of Judgement

Goku Black has an insane number of avenues for additional Damage post-Zenkai. At base, an extra 30% Damage to Saiyans and Hybrid Saiyans is nothing to scoff at, especially when taken into consideration alongside the numerous Damage Buffs Goku Black can stack with his Main Ability, Extra Arts Card, and Crisis Buffs.

Speaking of that Extra Arts Card, Black fittingly excels as he gets used to the body he inhabits, which manifests as additional effects provided by it. After a mere 25 Timer Counts elapse, it provides Vanishing Gauge Restoration Speed, Blast Damage, and Ki Recovery for 15 Counts, letting him tear through his foes with glee.

Utopia Beckons

Zenkai 1 SP Goku Black YEL even possesses minor Crisis Utility, allowing him to avenge his Fallen Allies. That said, because he only gets a +10% Damage Buff for each one defeated, it's safe to say his heart isn't really into the avenger act. It's not as though he is spurned on entirely by dead friends, as per each fallen Ally and Enemy, Zenkai Black receives a 10% Damage Buff. If he is the one who deals the finishing blow to any enemy, his Blast Damage is permanently increased by a staggering 35%. 

Even his Main Ability enhances his Damage by 50% if his Health is above 50% or 35% if it's under. This gives Black the Ability to augment his Damage when he needs it most. Altogether, Black has great potential to excel in a crisis.

Weaknesses

Still Adjusting To his Form

Zenkai 1 SP Goku Black YEL has excellent Damage in Saiyan and Hybrid Saiyan match-ups, but against other Tags his output is frankly lacking. He requires solid play and good pivoting to secure those Damage-Buffing finishing blows, and often the situation is too hectic to guarantee them.

His Defenses are also not stellar, as the only true Bulk-augmenting aspects of his Kit are his Main Ability and his Zenkai Ability - otherwise he's a sitting duck for the Combo fiends that dot the PvP landscape. 

Team Synergy

Future

Goku Black thrives on the Future Tag, the Tag that he was the first Supporter of. Fittingly, he retains his long-time role of Bench Buffer for the Tag's other prominent Yellows, SP SSJ Gohan YEL and SP Perfect Cell YEL, thanks to his Zenkai Ability. With the Zenkai boost, those Fighters become even more well-equipped to deal with the plethora of troublesome Purple Fighters in the meta. 

Zenkai 1 Black appreciates the Damage Support provided by SP Mai GRN and SP SSR Goku Black RED, two of the Tag's most consistent Offensive augmenters. With the former's Buffs and the latter's Debuffs, match-ups with non-Saiyan/Hybrid Saiyan Teams are a lot more manageable. 

Now that the Cyan Saiyan SP SSGSS Vegeta GRN has arrived and blessed the Future Tag with his presence, Zenkai Goku Black only gathers more Allies he can manipulate in service of his conquest. While Vegeta does not Buff Goku Black, Black can check problem Purples that threaten the War God and safely advance his gameplan with his overwhelming Offense on his side.
