Overview

The evil desires poured into the Dragon Balls have given rise to SP Syn Shenron YEL, a stellar Defensive Fighter with a simple yet versatile toolkit that will secure him a spot on the best GT Tag Teams.

At the start of the match, Syn acts as a Defensive Pivot whose Sustained Damage Cut Buff's activation condition lets it trigger even if he doesn't enter the battlefield on Cover-change. His Extra Arts Card and Main Ability give him some value in neutral exchanges too.

What sets SP Syn Shenron YEL apart is the way he interacts with the Rising Rush mechanic. Syn not only packs an endurance effect which lets him sustain a fatal blow and heal a percentage of his Health back, he also gives himself massive one-time permanent Damage Buffs when an Ally or an Enemy uses a Rising Rush.

Syn Shenron's power is easy to dismiss as gimmicky or limited, but in practice, he is a reliable Defensive Fighter who shines on the battlefield, even moreso if he is properly Supported. 

Strengths

Impervious

The +50% Sustained Damage Cut Buff Syn gives himself whenever he graces the field lets him stymie enemy momentum in classic Defensive Fighter fashion. What is a bit atypical about this Buff is that it triggers no matter what when he enters the field, protecting him from Cover change-baiting tactics. 

If Syn is defeated he revives himself from 0 Health, restoring 25% of it in the process. This nifty endurance effect even comes packaged with 30 Timer Counts of unfavorable Element Factor negation, so even if he is felled during a Red Fighter's Combo, they likely won't be able to keep him down. 

Monkey's Paw

Syn Shenron feeds on the negative desires of friends and foes alike, which manifests itself as permanent, non-cancelable Buffs - +50% to Damage Inflicted and +100% to Ki Recovery - when the Rising Rush is used the first time in a match.

This utility of his makes him one of the best Rising Rush Tanks in the game, and if his Team is lucky enough to activate its Rising Rush first, Syn can keep the pressure on with strong Offensive presence. 

The nature of these Buffs lets Syn perform well as a Crisis Fighter, as when they're active alongside his neutral tools, endurance, and naturally high Defensive Stats, mounting comebacks with the Leader of the Shadow Dragons becomes very manageable. 

Annoying Dominance

SP Syn Shenron YEL has an arsenal of back-handed tools that he can use to bulldoze through his foes. His Extra Arts Card, the Dark Dragon-Slaying Bullet, is a ranged attack that draws an additional card immediately, Restores 30 Ki on hit, and Combos into any other Arts Card.

If Syn's permanent Buffs are online when this card is used, he's free to decimate his target, but if not, the opening this card provides makes it easy for him to safely swap to a more Offensively-oriented Teammate

His Special Move Arts Card is also a ranged projectile, only this one is able to Damage to all enemy Fighters on standby and has a 50% chance to destroy a Dragon Ball, which makes it ideal for Crisis Situations. 

Weaknesses

No Sinners Yet to Punish

Before the Rising Rush is activated, SP Syn Shenron YEL's personal Damage is very poor. His potential as an Offensive Pivot is laughable at best, as most of the strongest Purple Fighters in the meta are bulky enough that Syn's output against them is worse than the more Offensive members of his Team. 

If Syn has his Rising Rush Buffs, or if he is under the influence of the GT Tag's top class Support Fighter roster, the situation would be very different, however.

Can't Find Clothes that Fit

SP Syn Shenron YEL's unconventional collection of Tags leaves him high and dry in the equipment department. His best options for many players will be generic equips for all Yellow Fighters that do not match his playstyle.

This deficiency is expected to be addressed in the future, but his low-equipment quality is a concern in the present. 

Team Synergy

GT

The GT Tag is SP Syn Shenron YEL's only Tag, but what he lacks in Tag versatility he makes up for in combat synergy.

Syn Shenron's best confidant is without a doubt, SP Super Baby 2 BLU. Baby protects Syn from enemy Reds, ameliorates his Damage issues, and increases his Endurance's healing factor significantly with to his Health Restoration Potency Buff. 

Syn's bannermate, SP Baby Vegeta GRN, is a solid Supportive partner for him. Baby Vegeta offers Damage and Ki to the lord of the dragons, and Syn defends him from Purple Fighters in return.

Shenron's impressive +30% Buff to Blast Attack and Defense for this Tag at 6 Stars prompts pairings with Blast-oriented Fighters like SP Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta RED. Vegeta's innate Card Draw Speed Buff accelerates the Team's progress towards that all-important Rising Rush which Syn requires to deal solid Damage.

SP Super Saiyan 4 Goku PUR, the Tag's most reliable tank prior to Syn's arrival, unexpectedly works well with him. Syn and Goku can complement each other Defensively by cutting off enemy momentum in quick succession if either of them lose a neutral exchange.
