Overview

SP Super Saiyan God Goku PUR is an exceptional Fighter and a welcome addition to the God Ki Tag. Goku functions as an unconventional Defensive Pivot and Offensive Support Fighter, though his own Damage can be something to fear in certain conditions. 

 Goku’s Defensive potential comes from his plethora of Combo-negating abilities, notably his scaling Sustained Damage Cut Buffs that accrue as he takes Damage, and his All Arts Cost Up Debuff he applies when changing Cover. The amount of disruption the red warrior is capable of must be seen to be believed.

The Saiyan raised on Earth isn’t wanting in the Offensive Department after taking some abuse, as he gains Damage Buffs whenever he witnesses an enemy use a Strike/Blast Arts or as when he evades an Enemy attack. This lets him switch roles on the fly very well in scramble situations. 

SP Super Saiyan God Goku PUR has one particular ace up his sleeve that elevates him, the God Bind, his Extra Arts attack. This Blast-Armor possessing charging technique Immobilizes any Fighter it touches, Debuffs them with Sustained Damage Up, grants Goku’s Team a significant Damage Buff, and Restores 50 Ki, setting either Goku or an allied fighter Fighter up for a devastating Combo.

Goku’s versatility and power in the neutral game are what set him apart from most Defensive Fighters. He’s going to be a superb option for the God Ki Tag for a very long time.

Strengths

Combo Cutter

SP Super Saiyan God Goku PUR tears through Enemies who attempt to strike his allies with a nasty Arts Cost Increase on Cover, which will likely allow him to pick up a Damage Buff or two from the foe he switches into the onslaught of while keeping his Health at safe levels. 

Main Event

Goku’s Main Ability deserves a special acknowledgement, as it not only Heals Goku and draws his near-perfect Extra Arts Card; it also removes all Attribute Upgrades from the Enemy he’s facing. Against certain Crisis Fighters and Enemies that build up their Offensive prowess over time with accruing Buffs, this utility is crushing and game-ending. 

Divine Snare

This magnificent Extra Arts Card deserves an entire section dedicated to it. The God Bind is arguably the best Extra Arts Card in the entire game, and its power can instantly swing the momentum of the match in Goku's Team's favor. The Offensive Support and combat loop-reversing utility it possesses is plain to see, but what is truly fantastic about it is its potential as a Combo tool.

It can be safely drawn at mid-range with Goku's Main Ability and activated safely to trump any enemy option or drawn during one of Goku's Combos to either guarantee a Rising Rush on a problem target (as enemies cannot change cover while Immobilized), or give Goku's Team some time to reorient its order if priority has been lost. No single Card in Dragon Ball Legends can be considered an "I win" button, but God Bind is probably the closest to being one out of every Extra Arts Card so far. 

Weaknesses

Situational Damage

Goku’s role isn’t to shred thought his Enemies, but he does have some use as a Damage dealer when he can dodge a foe or after he sees the Enemy bust out a Strike or Blast Arts. Goku somewhat fails as an Offensive Pivot though. He has difficulty doing Damage to Enemy Greens when switching in during an Ally’s Combo, unless he has access to God Bind. 

Doesn't Rise Above

Despite his Defensive Abilities, Goku has trouble surviving a Rising Rush. Goku’s power as a Cover-change tank is derived from the Arts Cost Debuff he inflicts on his foe, but unfortunately, the Rising Rush doesn’t require any Ki, leaving Goku vulnerable to it. Additionally, against foes that are Immune to Attribute Downgrades, Goku's Cover change Abilities essentially fail. 

Team Synergy

God Ki

Goku fits superbly onto God Ki as its best Purple Fighter, edging out the previously dominant SP Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Vegeta PUR. The God Ki tag is enormous at this point, and tons of its best Fighters can Support Goku. EX Whis RED is the obvious choice to run alongside this Goku, as his steady stream of Extra Arts Cards will significantly increase the uptime of God Bind.

SP Super Saiyan God SS Vegeta GRN, on the other hand, directly contributes to Goku’s Damage through his incredible Offensive Support. This trio is just one way to build a Team that plays to Goku’s strengths. SP Super Saiyan Rose Goku Black RED and SP Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku BLU both adore the Offensive Support of God Bind and are somewhat tanky in their own right, making this core a challenge to take down. Any combination of the aforementioned Fighters can create a scarily powerful Team - SP Super Saiyan God Goku PUR is the icing on the cake. 

Sagas From the Movies

SP SSG Goku PUR is a reliable Purple option for this Tag Team if any player seeking to build it is missing SP Full Power Boujack PUR. While his Z-Ability does nothing for the vast majority of this Team's best Fighters, his Abilities in combat are stellar enough to justify his inclusion on it. 

Goku can provide Extra Arts Cards for the ever ubiquitous SP Super Saiyan Youth Gohan YEL, who can bypass the neutral game with them. With Offensive Support from Fighters like SP Hero Tapion RED, Goku's potential as an Offensive Pivot shoots through the roof. 

While Goku is clearly an unconventional choice for this Tag, he proves his worth on it via his toolkit's synergy with its many great Fighters. He's worth considering on any variant of the Team that balances high Offense with even higher Defense.
