This is the second Super Saiyan Goku variant to appear in Dragon Ball Legends. While his Viral Heart Disease Unique Ability puts him at a severe disadvantage, he still has a few tricks up his hypothetical sleeve. 

This Fighter is meant to be played first in order to fully utilize his Abilities, similar to SP Pan BLU but with more focus on Offense and less Health.

His toolkit is primarily built around speed and dealing as much Damage as possible in a small amount of time. But considering how old he is, his shortened lifespan doesn't act so much like a balancing measure so much as a viability limiter.


Dragon Ball Collector

Despite his age, he can at the very least farm Dragon Balls for a quick Rising Rush due to his decreased Card costs and increased Arts Card Draw speed via his Main Ability.

Excellent Equips

This Fighter has almost dead equal Strike and Blast Attack, and luckily for him both stats can be further enhanced through the wide array of Equip options available to him.


Viral Heart Disease

This Fighter loses 5% of his Health each time he uses an Arts Card after the first 15 timer counts. It's not a huge loss individually but if he performs a four Card Combo, that amounts to 20% of his Health. While this doesn't make him completely unplayable, it makes him a bit fragile.

No Longer Competitive

What was once considered powerful Buffs are now considerably more common among new Fighters. Without the backing of a really strong Team, SP SSJ Goku YEL would be lucky to survive an Enemy Combo before he even has a chance to throw a punch of his own.

Team Synergy


He's one of the many Saiyan options available. Considering his Z-Ability doesn’t help out the Team, SP SSJ Goku YEL isn’t the best pick for this Build, but it can do a lot to support him. Still, he makes for great bench support for more powerful Saiyans like SP Goku Black YEL

Yellow Color-Counter

Similar to Saiyan Team Builds, Yellow Color Counter Teams have many good options and this Fighter can hardly them beyond Attack potency. Still, his best bet is sticking to the bench, thanks to his Strike and Blast Attack Boosting Z-Ability.
