SP Super Saiyan Gohan GRN is an unassuming Offensive juggernaut of a Fighter; he greatly expands the options of the Hybrid Saiyan Tag and boldly codifies its relevance in the Metagame. Gohan is a simple yet effectively designed Fighter that can fulfill a number of roles during the match.
At the start of the Match, he acts as an Offensive Supporter for his Hybrid Saiyan Allies, and as Timer Counts elapse, he gathers more and more Offensive Buffs via his first Unique Ability. SP Super Saiyan Gohan GRN even gets access to a Substitution Count reducing Special Arts Card that lets him keep his Team’s pressure on.
All of this equates to a strong Supporter with additional Crisis utility should the situation call for it.
A Teacher Who Can Walk the Talk
SP Super Saiyan Gohan GRN’s Buffs to Hybrid Saiyan Allies activate when he enters the battlefield alongside a self-buff to Card Draw Speed, letting him utilize his own buffs to great effect. When his Main Ability’s Damage Buffs and his Hybrid Saiyan Damage Buff are active at once, SP Super Saiyan Gohan GRN is capable of dishing out absurd Damage, even against Purple Fighters.
Cool in a Crisis
Thanks to his Unique Ability’s gradually accruing Damage Buffs, SP Super Saiyan Gohan GRN can hold his own stunningly well in single combat situations. While the fact that these Buffs are visible makes him vulnerable to Buff purging Fighters, Gohan is still able to excel as a Last Man Standing.
SP Super Saiyan Gohan GRN is the textbook definition of a niche Fighter. His Z-ability, Support Buffs, and Main Ability all require Hybrid Saiyan Allies - and in his Main Ability’s case, specifically Goten Allies.
The way his kit was built greatly restricts his possible Team builds, which is a shame because all of his Tags would have appreciated an Offensive Support Fighter as powerful as SP Super Saiyan Gohan GRN.
A Crowded Field
Hybrid Saiyans as a Tag does not lack for strong Crisis Fighters, and considering Crisis utility is one of SP Super Saiyan Gohan GRN’s few functions, his place on a Team could be considered redundant. That being said, having multiple Fighters with Crisis utility can be a benefit depending on the progression of some matches; the issue lies in the number of Crisis Fighters reaching a point of diminishing returns.
This is the Team SP Super Saiyan Gohan GRN was clearly designed for, and his showing on this Tag Team does not disappoint. Because SP Super Saiyan Gohan GRN’s Main Ability specifically designates a Goten Fighter as a requirement for its full activation, SP Super Saiyan Kid Goten PUR is the most logical Teammate for him. When paired with SP Super Saiyan Kid Goten PUR, Gohan is capable of dishing out some of the most devastating combos in the game with minimal outside Support.
This pair can be supplemented with any of the Hybrid Saiyan Tag’s star members, like SP Super Saiyan Youth Gohan YEL, who synergizes especially well with SP Super Saiyan Gohan GRN, or SP Super Saiyan 2 Youth Gohan RED, who synergizes especially well with SP Super Saiyan Goten PUR. Any strong Hybrid Saiyan in that third slot will perform exceptionally well alongside the sibling duo.
SP Super Saiyan Gohan GRN can be used to great effect on this Team, assuming his two teammates are both Hybrid Saiyans. If he is used alongside Goku Fighters, his potential to act as Offensive Support will decrease, so it is best to use Gohan alongside Fighters who fit on both the Son Family Tag and the Hybrid Saiyan Tag.

Why this Tier?
He gives good Buffs to Hybrid Saiyans and has some pretty formidable Strike Attack himself after a few timer counts have passed.
Hybrid Saiyans are still a work in progress, and he’s pretty fragile.
Simply put, he gives nice Support to his Teammates and his Strike Attack is good. His Team is still a ways away from being one of the best, and since he can only be limit broken to 3 stars he’s a bit fragile at the moment. He still has a lot of potential to move up and will likely do it once Hybrid Saiyans get better and he's able to be limit broken some more.
