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 improved his Offensive tookit by a bit, but overall SP Goku Black YEL is a mix of situational Offensive Buffs that aren't reliable. Because of his lackluster combat offerings outside of fringe cases and his Blast-oriented playstyle on a largely Strike-oriented Tag, he's held back from being a staple.


Whirlwind of Judgement

SP Goku Black YEL's Damage is only superb against Saiyans and Hybrid Saiyans, but against other types of opponents, he has some ways of increasing his Damage

He can function as a fine Last Man Standing depending on how the Match develops. If Goku Black manages to score the finishing blow at any point, he's awarded with a permanent +35% Blast Damage Buff, so scoring kills with the Future reaper should be his Team's top priority. 

Additionally, per fallen Ally and Enemy, he gains a +10% Damage Inflicted Buff, which enables some incredible Damage late-game in Crisis scenarios. 

Goku Black's multi-faceted Main Ability factors into this as well, as he's able to net a 30% Self-Heal and a significant +35% Inflicted Damage Buff from it if he activates it when his Health is below 50%.


Still Adjusting To his Form

Zenkai 1 SP Goku Black YEL has can cause carnage 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


Goku Black thrives on the Future Tag, the Tag that he was the flag-bearer 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. 

In combat, he relies on his evolved form, SP SSR Goku Black RED, to increase his Inflicted Damage. If Rose or a different Support Fighter is not present, his Damage falters in the early-game.

SP Goku Black PUR is a fairly strong Defensive compliment for his Zenkai counterpart, keeping him in the match long enough for him to make the late-game splash he was designed to carry games with.
