Overview

SP Super Janemba RED is the latest dynamite addition to the Regeneration and Sagas From the Movies Tags. Janemba’s arrival marks a significant shift in the power balance of the Meta; his Sagas Warriors-countering kit directly opposes some of the strongest Fighters and cements his place as a durable Offensive threat. 

Janemba's devastating projectile counter makes playing against him supremely difficult. He's able to easily hold his own in the neutral game-state thanks to it and his high Combo Damage, which is dangerous even when he's in neutral match-ups. 

His superb power makes him relevant in some of the strongest Teams in the Meta, which makes him a Fighter to prepare for. 

Strengths

A Committed Review Bomber

SP Super Janemba RED functions best as a counter-pick Fighter, as both his Offense and Defense become overwhelming when he faces Sagas from the Movies Fighters.

He can easily be incorporated into any Team’s rotation; swapping him in during an Ally’s combo lets him immediately put enemy movie stars on the Defensive. 

Even against enemy Sagas From the Movies Fighters with Type Advantage, SP Super Janemba RED's additional Tag Defense holds true - his power is frankly marvelous in this match-up. Universal +30% Damage Inflicted and +20% Sustained Damage cut are truly incredible. 

Tempo Dictator

SP Super Janemba RED packs two tools that significantly limit how his opponents can play, those being his Extra Arts card and his second Unique Ability. The former is a devastating Blast Arts and Tap Shot Counter that inflicts Immobilize, a very annoying Status Ailment.

The latter increases Janemba’s Inflicted Damage and decreases his enemy’s Ki whenever they use an Extra Arts Card, punishing them for using their own alternate combat options.

These two tools limit the foe's options significantly and can make facing Janemba a downright oppressive ordeal.  

Offensive Force

Even when he's not facing Sagas From the Movies opponents, he impresses as a powerful Offensive pivot. Whenever he enters the field, he's greeted by 30 Ki and a +40% Strike Damage Buff for 15 Timer Counts, giving him value as a Combo extender. 

Janemba can enhance his already deadly Damage with his Main Ability, which adds a +35% Strike Damage Buff for 30 Timer Counts and reduces his Strike Arts Cost by 10 for the same amount of time. It even draws an Extra Arts Card, which can put him in prime position to deliver a fatal Combo. 

Weaknesses

Vulnerable Outside his Home Turf

Even though SP Super Janemba RED has incremental healing and excellent Defenses when facing Sagas Warriors, his Defenses overall are exploitable by top Meta threats.

Against many of the most powerful and ubiquitous Teams, Janemba will need teammates able to Defend him from the prospect of a quick death. 

No Switch, No Shoes, No Service

Janemba relies on frequent switching to function Offensively. In Crisis scenarios, his lack of Damage really shows, which can make him a liability in the late-game.

His Counter gives him some utility, but because his Damage Buffs are all ephemeral, making comebacks with the ultimate hellspawn can be challenging. 

Team Synergy

Regeneration

SP Super Janemba RED fits into Regeneration as its best Red option, but his lack of bulk incentivizes running Defensive Teammates alongside him.

Of course, Janemba is a must in any Sagas Warriors match-up. Against Blast-oriented Teams, Janemba can also be used, and his counter makes him a deadly annoyance. 

He benefits significantly from the Supportive power of SP Super Baby 2 BLU; with Baby behind him, he's capable of completely shutting down the Sagas Warrior match-up.

Janemba forms a catastrophic Core with SP Android #21: Evil PUR, a Fighter with whom he can instigate fatal Strike Combos. #21 provides Extrra Arts Cards for the incarnation of Hell, which lets him dominate the neutral game even more. 

Sagas From the Movies

Who would have thought that the crowd Janemba hates most would have the easiest time accommodating him? SP Janemba RED is a fantastic addition to the Sagas From the Movies Tag, acting as both a solid Red and a no-brainer Core choice in the event of a mirror match.

The deadly, versatile SP Full Power Boujack PUR provides Support for Janemba and can Defend him with his unique Cover effect. Janemba's prey, SP Super Saiyan Youth Gohan YEL, is a strong partner for him, as Janemba can lob an Extra Arts Card to him to nearly guarantee a Combo. 

SP Broly: Cheelai BLU can also provide an Extra Arts Card for Janemba, and their Dragon Ball generation acts as a win condition on Teams oriented around Janemba, whose passive countering play style can result in matches that last a while.
