Overview

Despite his lofty and meta-changing history, SP SSJ2 Gohan RED is no longer in the running for "Best Fighter in the Game; he's not even optimal on Son Family, the Tag he once led, which has fully adapted to a Strike-Focused play-style. His power simply isn't well-supported enough to keep up with the changing tides of the meta. 

Even with all that is holding him back, SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED is a perfect addition to  Hybrid Saiyan and Son Family Teams that don't care about his held Blast Cards. His Kit is still exceptional, which boats a near perfect Main Ability, Crisis Utility, and scaling Inflicted Damage Buffs that exponentially increase the carnage as he Combos with Blast Cards. 

His Tag-hate utility is relevant even today, as in a Meta rife with regenerating menaces, his Cover change and constant reduced Damage from Regeneration Fighters gives his Teams a fighting chance in the match-up. While his Day of Fate has passed, those who choose to underestimate the first Super Saiyan 2 will undoubtedly be in for a rude awakening. 

Strengths

Destructive Offensive Force

Offensively, SP SSJ2 Gohan RED is a complete threat in every stage of the match. He gains a +15% Inflicted Damage Boost for 15 timer counts every time he uses a Blast Card, and a +25% Blast Damage Buff whenever his Cover Change effect wears off. 

While Blast has historically been seen as Offensively inefficient, SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED's Blast Cards are eternally discounted by 5 Ki, letting him safely unload his hand whenever the opportunity arises with Ki to spare. 

Gohan's offense extends to his Main Ability, which draws the Ultimate Arts Card with the highest Damage potential in the game. If a Goku variant on the Team falls before it is activated, its increased Damage is high enough to potentially land a one hit kill.

High Survivability

SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED has good Defensive stats and some great Abilities to make him a durable Fighter.

His Cover-esque Ability allows him to reduce Damage received by 40% on top of the Damage deduced from Regeneration Fighters by 20%, which is very useful in the current Meta--he’s the perfect counter for SP Perfect Cell YEL and other key Regeneration threats. 

He also can Heal by 30% thanks to his Main Ability, which comes packaged with one of the most enviable effects in the game - 20 Timer Counts of Element Disadvantage Negation if a teammate has died. 

One Hand is Enough

Gohan's power does not reach its crescendo until both of his Allies Fall, at which point his Crisis Abilities provide him with +60% Damage Inflicted and +40% Ki Recovery, making comeback victories with the prodigal son possible, if not likely. Gohan's power in these situations is still nearly unmatched - he has earned his reputation as a comeback kid. 

Weaknesses

The Cost of Range

While SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan’s kit makes him one of the best Fighters in the game, his held Blast Arts Cards could cause a few problems.

They work very well with his own Abilities, but the presence of additional Blast Cards is bothersome for Fighters whose Blast Damage is not as high as his. Blast Arts Cards have historically been hard to use without reduced Card cost as well, so while he makes great use of them in a Match, others might not. The majority of the best Son Family and Hybrid Saiyan Fighters rely on Strike Cards as their primary source of Damage output, leaving Gohan somewhere in limbo. 

The Death of Hope

All of SSJ2 Gohan's Buffs are visible, which unfortunately leaves him with devastatingly bad match-ups against Teams that can purge Attribute Upgrades. SP SSJ2 Gohan RED thrives on Crisis Buffs, and if they're snatched away, triumphing over his opponents in a lopsided gamestate, his entire identity as a Fighter, is nearly impossible. 

Team Synergy

Son Family

The Son Family Tag has somewhat outgrown SSJ2 Gohan now, focusing on a Strike-Offense playstyle with the likes of SP SSJ4 Goku PUR, SP SSJ Youth Gohan YEL, and SP Angry Goku BLU, the latter of these being more of a mixed Offensive Bag.

Regardless, SP SSJ2 Gohan RED can fit on this Tag, especially when he is fielded alongside his younger brother and best Supporter, SP SSJ Goten PUR. That Blast core is still powerful, even in the current meta, and any of Son Family's best Fighters are able to work alongside them. SP Angry Goku BLU is of course the preferred option, as all three Fighters possessing Crisis Utility is something to behold. 

Hybrid Saiyan

Hybrid Saiyans are in a bit of a weird spot, with several good core Fighters, but almost all of them very strongly emphasize one form of Attack and don't synergize with some other Hybrid Saiyans. Either way, he's still a solid choice as their primary Red Fighter. SP Teen Trunks PUR acts as an excellent Supporter for Gohan, and Gohan returns the favor by protecting him from Yellows. 

SP SSJ Teen Gohan GRN is a great aid for the original Super Saiyan 2, as protects him from Blues and Supports his Offense.
