Overview

 The Hero of the Sagas Warriors Tag has arrived, and he’s packing an iconic sword and a soothing tune. SP Hero Tapion RED distinguishes himself from other Support-oriented Fighters by acting as a supremely annoying disruptor with actual combat prowess.
 

Speaking of his combat prowess, Tapion’s is through the roof. The Hero utilizes Crisis buffs and a Special Move Arts Card with Blast Armor to get an edge. He can also enhance the damage of his Sagas Warriors comrades and seal specific enemy Arts Cards, making him an integral part of the Sagas Warriors gameplan. 

SP Hero Tapion RED fills so many roles that he can be considered one of the most versatile Sagas Warriors, as his utility was largely unexplored design space prior to his release. This Hero is making sure everyone is playing by the rules. 

Strengths

Ocarina Time

SP Hero Tapion RED’s defining characteristic is his potential to act as a “sealer” of Main Abilities, Special Arts Cards, and Special Move Arts Cards with own Main Ability and his Special Arts Card, Flute of Sealing. This power of his makes him a menace for Fighters that Transform or rely on their Special Arts or Special Move Arts Cards for advantage in the neutral game. Fighters with Counters for example will need to tread lightly around this warrior. 

Positive Influence

Any Ally SP Hero Tapion RED switches into is awarded a significant +25% Damage Inflicted Buff, bringing his Team’s Damage to a whole new dimension. This isn’t the only direct Offense Support Tapion offers, as his ability to gain 20 Ki upon entering the battlefield allows him to shorten the downtime between his Team's combos.

Heroic Last Stand

SP Hero Tapion RED becomes more heroic with each downed Ally. He accrues Damage Buffs every time he enters combat depending on the number of Allies fighting alongside him, culminating in a massive Damage boost and a 25% Heal when his second friend falls. These Crisis Buffs are not visible, meaning they’re reliable and not susceptible to Buff Removal effects. 

Weaknesses

Low Level Armor

Unfortunately, all of SP Hero Tapion RED’s versatility has a cost, and that would be his durability. While he is a complete buzzkill to play against, he is very susceptible to long combos. Defensive Fighters are necessary teammates for SP Hero Tapion Red to ensure he survives in the long run.

This weakness of his is mitigated when a Trunks Fighter is deployed alongside Tapion. The mere presence of his protege reduces Tapion’s Sustained Damage by 15% permanently, giving him much more longevity in combat. 

Team Synergy

Sagas From the Movies

The Sagas Warriors Team greatly appreciates the arrival of SP Hero Tapion RED; he has become the Tag’s premier Red Fighter. The fact that Hero Tapion occupies the Red slot allows him to check the counters the near-perfect SP Full Power Boujack PUR. The two of these Fighters working in tandem form a dangerous core that can be complemented by any of their main Tag’s stars, like EX Zangya BLU, SP Goku GRN, or SP Super Saiyan Youth Gohan YEL.

SP Teen Trunks PUR is a notable partner for SP Hero Tapion RED, as he’ll activate Tapion’s Permanent Damage Reduction Ability, giving him the capacity to act as a pseudo-Defensive Fighter.
