SP Youth Trunks BLU arrives with the second edition of Legends Road as an obtainable SP Fighter and possesses a Transformation signifying the rage he felt after his mentor Gohan was killed by the Androids.
Everything about this Fighter’s toolkit is indicative of his love for his mentor, as being paired with any Gohan variant gives him a sizeable Damage Buff when Gohan is alive, and when he dies.
Whether it’s from the start of the Match or until the bitter end due to his Crisis-like Abilities, this Fighter remains a potent Melee Fighter capable of dishing out significant amounts of Damage.
SP Youth Trunks BLU has exceptionally high Strike Attack and a variety of ways to increase it. Not only that, but his Main Ability can draw a Special Move Arts Card and simultaneously increases Special Move Damage inflicted.
He comes into the Match like a bat out of hell and finishes it just as strong if any of his Teammates are taken down.
Trunks variants have access to powerful Equip options, and that’s no different here. Even as a one-dimensional Melee Fighter, he can still be optimized to send his Strike Attack and Defenses through the roof.
Mixed Arts Cards
While his Strike Attack is one of the highest in the game, the fact that he comes with a Blast Arts Card can hinder his Damage output significantly.
Even after transforming into a Super Saiyan, his Blast Attack is entirely insignificant. This means the Enemy Team can rally against him very easily and send in any resilient Fighter with high Strike Defense to deal with him accordingly.
Due to his Future Tag and Synergy with Gohan variants--specifically SP SSJ Gohan YEL--he fits in nicely in this Team.
What makes him especially enticing here is the fact that both he and SP SSJ Gohan YEL are Melee Fighters and SP SSJ Gohan YEL’s two held Strike Arts Cards are a great boon to someone like SP Youth Trunks BLU.
While his Z-Ability doesn’t help many Hybrid Saiyans, he still fits the dynamic of the standard Hybrid Saiyan Team due to his Strike-centric toolkit.
He’s arguably the best Legends Road Fighter ever, relative to his release.
His Synergy with theFuture Tag is good, but he’s been power crept.
Future got a huge boost with SP Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black RED, but even with the Tag in dire need of a Blue, SP Youth Trunks BLU is not the greatest pick. He’s simply too old to consistently compete.
