Overview

Coming straight from the Majin Buu Saga in the anime series. the ultimate fusion between Goten and Trunks has arrived once again, this time rocking their most powerful transformation--Super Saiyan 3.

In similar fashion to his previous forms, this Gotenks variant is at his peak during early stages of a Match. Even though he’s classified as a Defensive Fighter, he can still pack a punch through his Strike Art Cards, and his very high chance to inflict Faint via Ultimate Arts Card can swing the tides of the Match in his Team favor.

Strengths

Rewarding Cover

SP SSJ3 Gotenks YEL is the first Fusion Warrior Fighter that comes equipped with Cover Ability, and it’s a strong one at that. While the 40% Damage reduction during Cover is rather standard, activating it gives him a huge 50% Strike Damage inflicted Boost - coupled with Buffs gained from his Unique Ability "Crazy Strong", he becomes a force to reckoned with when entering the battlefield.

Crowd Control

This Gotenks is the first character in the game to introduce Ranged Ultimate Arts Card, and it’s a very powerful one at that. With up to 75% chance to Faint, landing it can create a game-change situation which sets up a high Damaging combo for him or his Teammates.

His Extra Move Immobilizes the Enemy in similar fashion to SP FF Frieza YEL, but also heavily reduced Enemy Ki Recovery Speed. All of the above, alongside the Ki Reduction from his Special Move Arts Card, this Combo can heavily impact Enemy movement and Ki management, giving the upper hand to his Team on many occasions.

Valuable Z-Ability

Z-Abilities that increase base Health are invaluable, making Fighters with them well-sought after. Not only does this Gotenks increase Health of Fusion Warriors--being the first Fighter ever to do so--he also does so for Hybrid Saiyans, making him a great addition to both of those Teams.

Weaknesses

Unpredictable Strength

Unique Ability ‘Crazy Strong’ provides much-needed Damage Buffs in addition to Buffs that greatly help with his Ki and Vanish Gauge management. The issue with this Ability lies in its random nature though. Every time SP SSJ3 Gotenks YEL enters the battlefield, he receives between one to three Buffs that either reduce Strike Arts cost, increase his Ki or Vanish Gauge recovery.

There’s no way to control which of these Buffs are applied to him, making his strength and usefulness heavily depend on luck of the draw.

In addition, the fact that he loses his biggest Damage Buff after 45 timer counts from start of the Match certainly doesn’t help him either.

Stats Distribution

While SP SSJ3 Gotenks YEL boasts great Strike and Blast Defenses that go very well with Cover Ability, his Health pool is on the lower side for a Defensive Fighter, even when accounting in the bonus provided by his Z-Ability.

Similarly, his Blast Attack leaves much to be desired and can quickly become his pain point, because the Fighters that he pairs with and are main carries in their respective Tags--SP Gogeta BLU in Fusion Warriors or SP SSJ2 Gohan RED in Hybrid Saiyans--are Ranged Fighters that bring Blast Art Cards into the deck.

Team Synergy

Fusion Warrior

So far, Fusion Warrior team had almost exclusively only Fighters that were pure Damage dealer--with SP Gotenks GRN being the oddball. Thus, SP SSJ3 Gotenks YEL, as a powerful Defensive Fighter, is a great addition to the Fusion Warrior team.

Not only does he bring a strong and much-needed Cover Ability for the Team, but he’s also the first Fighter with a Health Buffing Z-Ability for Fusion Warriors, making him a welcome sight and staple Fighter in this Team.

Hybrid Saiyan

At 5 stars, SP SSJ3 Gotenks YEL also Buffs the Health of Hybrid Saiyan Tag through his Z-Ability. While SP Kid Gohan YEL also boasts the same Z-Ability, the former Fighter isn’t just a bench, which can open more Team Building options. The addition of SP SSJ Youth Gohan YEL completely kicks him off the core but SP SSJ3 Gotenks YEL still has a more valuable Z-Ability

As a Yellow Defensive Fighter that brings two Strike Art Cards, this Gotenks has great Synergy with SP Ultimate Gohan GRN, both color and kit-wise. While he excels in early stages of the Match, he gets slightly weaker later on, but SP SSJ2 Gohan RED can pick up the torch from him to carry the rest of the Match. Again, however, he's inferior to SP SSJ Youth Gohan YEL and should only be brought along if the Player is missing him.
