Where to Obtain
After over a year of game’s lifespan, finally a Blue variant of Sparking rarity Vegeta blessed us with his presence. To everyone’s surprise, he’s a first Transforming unit ever to be released in an Ultra Space-Time type banner, boasting interesting kit and very high base stats after Transforming into Super Saiyan, with his tremendous Strike Attack being an outlier.
Vegeta differentiates himself among the surprising quantity of Blast Armor Blue Fighters with impressive Bulk and a very focused kit. His gameplan is clear - build up a Strike Attack Combo and unleash a devastating Special Move, dealing lethal Damage and recovering some Health in the process. This simple yet effective strategy is what propels SP Vegeta BLU into the upper echelon of Melee Type Fighters. His power, Team versatility, and ability to excel as a lead or an Offensive Pivot firmly establishes him as a force in the Meta.
I Can't Beat You Without Getting Closer
Blast Armor is an immensely useful effect, especially in situations where there is no possibility to either Vanish or switch out a Fighter, so having it on both Strike and Special Move Arts Cards can come in handy. Blast Armor even has some interesting quirks - it allows Fighters that have it to Vanish while they pierce through enemy Blast Attacks, leading to some great mix-up potential.
All types of Blast Armor attacks make for fantastic opening gambits at mid-range, as they trump multiple options while keeping the Fighter utilizing it relatively safe. This is especially useful when charging in with his Special Move, since the Heal it provides will mostly offset damage taken from Enemy Fighter’s Blast Attack.
Fists Of Fury
His insanely high Strike Attack stat after Transforming, coupled with amazing Damage Inflicted Buffs from switch in and Main Ability, make this Vegeta one of the hardest hitting Melee Fighters in the game.
Additionally, landing multiple Strike Arts Cards continuously Buff and decrease the cost of Vegeta's Special Move Arts, making it a powerful Combo finisher that simultaneously restores 15% of his Health. Vegeta can use his Main Ability to draw the move on command and close out a Combo, or even pop his Main Ability after a Rising Rush to scout his opponent's behavior.
The multi-faceted usefulness of Vegeta's kit is what makes every aspect of it so dangerous to face.
I Am Speed
SP Vegeta BLU can Transform after just mere 5 timer counts since start of the Match, making it one of the fastest Transformations in the game. Both of his Main Abilities increase his Card Draw Speed, which can temporarily overlap if both are used in rapid succession, setting up a potentially long and devastating Combo.
Unable to Stand his Ground
Many Vegeta Fighters are explosively Offensive, with the potential to eliminate enemies in a single Combo, but simultaneously falter when behind in combat. All of Vegeta's Offensive and Defensive Buffs are ephemeral, leading to rather lackluster performance when he is forced to fight with no Allies.
His Blast Armor can give him the leg up in these situations, but it doesn't make up for his poor Damage and Bulk.
This Tag is clearly where SP Vegeta BLU belongs; the internal synergy between its best Fighters promotes an overwhelming Offensive style that Vegeta thrives with. He can be paired with some of the Tag's Strike-oriented Fighters, SP SSJ Vegeta RED or SP Teen Trunks PUR, to create a solid Strike-oriented team.
SP Super Saiyan God SS Vegeta GRN, the Tag's most powerful Offensive Supporter, seems tailor made to buoy SP Vegeta BLU's incredible Damage. Other notable partners for the Transforming Prince are EX Kid Trunks GRN and SP Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta RED, who can contribute to SP Vegeta BLU's Damage through their Debuffs and Support Abilities respectively.
Paired together with SP SSJ Bardock BLU and SP Super Vegito PUR, this Vegeta can replace SP Gogeta BLU as a third Team member. Bringing two Strike Arts Cards into the deck results in a better Damage output for the aforementioned Teammates, due to both being Melee Fighters.
Though it would make the Team slightly less cohesive, SP Teen Trunks PUR can be used here in place of Bardock to double down on the Vegeta Family synergy inherent to Teams that include SP Vegeta BLU.
Sagas From The Movies
He doesn't Buff the Tag, but the addition of SP Boujack PUR and SP SSJ Youth Gohan YEL were insanely strong Melee components that make a full Team, and make SP Vegeta BLU arguably the best Blue for the Tag over EX Zangya BLU.
Unfortunately, including Vegeta on Teams that don't let him share the field with his family decreases the overall synergy. To counteract this, a Vegeta Family focused Sagas From the Movies build is possible thanks to the existence of SP Teen Trunks PUR and EX Kid Trunks GRN. Alternatively, if Teen Trunks is to be used, SP Hero Tapion RED is an excellent choice to round the Team out, as his Support Abilities and synergy with Trunks variants will make the Team slightly more Defensive.
The Saiyan Teams possible with SP Vegeta BLU are absurdly powerful and absolutely worth consideration for Vegeta's best Team. Due to the sheer number of Vegeta variants in the game, entire Saiyan cores comprised of Vegeta Fighters are possible, resulting in a Team that can benefit from Vegeta Family and Saiyan Z-Abilities.
SP Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta RED, SP Super Saiyan God SS Vegeta GRN, and even SP Super Saiyan God SS Vegeta PUR are all available options for this Vegeta Team.
Non-Vegeta compositions are also viable - these would simply take advantage of SP Vegeta BLU's overwhelming Offense to secure victory. SP Bardock YEL is a Fighter that Vegeta greatly enjoys having around, as his Defensive Utility and Ability to Draws a Special Move Arts Card for him shore up some of his weaknesses.
