Z Tier

What makes a Team 'Z Tier'?

Consistent Teams Offensively and Defensively. All Teams in this Tier have multiple Win conditions, so they can afford to make mistakes multiple times per Battle without their chances of victory decreasing.

S Tier

What makes a team 'S' Tier?

The Teams listed here would be Z Tier worthy it wasn’t for some small flaws that either make them less diverse, or a bit less powerful as a whole. This Tier represents Teams who could mechanically work as 'Z' Tier Teams if not for the slightest of deficiencies. 

Why This Tier?

  • Having once been a theoretical Color Counter Team, the most recent banner shot this Team from obscurity to Meta greatness.

  • The SSJ4 Saiyans and SP Super Baby 2 BLU, having all been released simultaneously, is an effective Saiyan based Core who benefit both this Tag and all of their secondary Tags.

 

Discussion:

Not to be outdone by their God Ki counterparts from Dragon Ball Super, the GT Tag came out swinging with a Purple Saiyan powerful enough to replace SP Super Vegito PUR on the main Saiyan Core, which is no small feat. The only glaring weakness to GT is the fact that all of the main Core Fighters share a Saiyan Tag, making them wary around Lineage of Evil Teams. Every one of these Fighters become prominently featured champions on their alternative Tags, and work even better together. SP Super #17 GRN finally has allies worthy of his presence and SP SSJ Vegeta YEL can function again with the Support from SP Super Baby 2 BLU.

Why this Tier?

  • SP Cooler PUR is the main show. While he doesn’t have the flashiest kit, it simply works; elevating the forgotten brother to the most efficient Saiyan genocide machine to date. SP 1st Form Frieza PUR is more of an alternative choice compared to him.

  • The rest of the Team's composition Supports SP Cooler PUR rather well, boasting multiple Color options that can adapt well against most matchups, especially when Saiyans are involved.

Discussion:

Lineage of Evil is a quite bulky Team that can also boast some moments of excellence Offensively depending on the Build. Generally, SP Coora PUR is too good to be replaced by SP 1st Form Frieza PUR, but at times it comes down to preference because their playstyles are very different from each other. The Team revolves around them in a similar fashion, with the only relevant difference being the game rythm, since SP Coora PUR allows you to stall better, while SP 1st Form Frieza PUR demands a faster pace.

Tier 1

What makes a Team 'Tier 1'?

Compared to S Tier Teams, the ones listed here have more matchup problems but they can still compete with the Meta pretty well, as they have very powerful Fighters and solid Win Conditions.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Fusion Warriors are  powerful and are well built to  compete in the Meta, and with the addition of SP Super Gogeta GRN, the Team becomes moreversatile Offensively.. SP Super Vegito PUR’s stats and kit upon release were so far ahead of his peers that his viability is likely to remain as future Fusion Warriors allies are released, and SP Vegito RED’s powerful Triple Buffing Z-Ability along with his own Defensive Abilities make this powerful Team a solid choice in this Meta.

Why this Tier?

  • SP 1st Form Frieza PUR makes every Fighter on this Team at least good Offensively.

  • This Team's versatility allows it to rotate between durable or highly Offensive Builds depending on the matchup.

     

     

Discussion:

SP 1st Form Frieza PUR's Support has been the "Water Of Youth" for this Team, that was on the brink of extinction due to not having enough Offensive Power. Now, while the show is ran by the multiple Frieza variants, even the old EX Recoome BLU can shine, making this Tag quite competitive.

Why This Tier?

  • The release of SP SSB Vegeta GRN keeps that momentum going with his fantastic Support and Damage output. 

  • Pure rage translates to overwhelming Damage potential -- being the sole reason this Team will see play -- , but that alone isn't enough in the current Meta.

Discussion:

Still limited in Synergy and Team options, Vegeta Family is having problems to keep up with other Meta Teams. SP SSB Vegeta GRN and SP Teen Trunks PUR form the basis for a devastating Offensive Core capable of the highest consistent Damage, but the Team's Defense is way too low at this point.

Why this Tier?

  • This Tag has some of the best Z-Abilities in the game, so they tend to pop in and out of the Meta as new Fighters are released.

  • After the release of SP Majin #21 PUR and SP Android #21 BLU, this Tag finally got some much needed top Fighters.

 

Discussion:

Androids main ploy is their Synergy, working together like a well oiled machine. Sporting some of the best Double Buffing Z-Abilities in the Game means that any new Android coming in will receive a warm welcome. Boasting some of the best Fighters in the Game and a very fitting Deck, Android has all the tools to be a top threat in the Meta.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Hybrid Saiyans have tons of powerful Fighters and a multitude of Z-Buffers that can bench for other more powerful Tags. While a consistent Tag on it’s own, nearly all of their Fighters prefer the company of more powerful Tags like Vegeta Family or Sagas Warriors.Hybrid Saiyans are another Tag who are easy to “splash” into other Teams and have a high degree of customization within itself, being able to make both a Blast or Strike focused Team or something in between.

Tier 2

What makes a Team 'Tier 2'?

Solid Teams that have the means to compete even against higher tier Teams, however they require more expertise compared to those to perform well.

Why this Tier?

  • SP SSR Goku Black RED gives many new options to the Team.

  • They still lack some diversity and synergy overall to be considered a Top Team.

Discussion:

SP SSR Goku Black RED's partnership with SP Teen Trunks PUR has been popular. While the latter doesn’t synergize that much with the former, their combined Offensive Support makes SP SSB Vegeta GRN inflict hellish amounts of Damage. Future also has some decent bench options like SP Perfect Cell YEL.

Why This Tier?

  • The goofy gaggle of multi-colored Ginyu goons at first doesn’t appear to be able to keep pace with more serious Teams. Frieza’s top men have tricks up their hypothetical sleeves though, namely fantastic Synergy and Equip options that boost their EX level stats up to the level of Sparking. 

  • Capable of reliably using both Offenses while also carrying Support options like EX Guldo GRN’s Heavy Immoblize or EX Captain Ginyu PURs switch prevention makes this Team quite unpredictable.

Discussion:

This Team’s fantastic Z-Abilities are a double-edged sword. Every member Buffs Frieza Force -- which keeps Team options open --but also keeps Frieza’s elite force from ever pulling ahead of the entire army. Unless specific and unprecedented support arrives for Ginyu Force, they will always be just a subsection of the more established Frieza Force. They’ve gone up to Tier 2 because it’s now possible to upgrade them further than 3*

Tier 3

What makes a Team 'Tier 3'?

Teams that only have one solid Fighter, a weak Supporting cast, or bad matchups in PVP as a whole.

Why this Tier?

  • SP Majin #21 PUR is the queen of this Tag and the double Support from SP Android #21 BLU and SP Android #18 RED makes her shine ven more.

  • The Universe 2 Fighters are still quite good, if they had different colors this Team would be top tier.

Discussion:

The Team built a hyper-Offensive identity after SP Majin #21 PUR's release, building a composition that could even be looked at as an alternative to the Android Team. What this Team lacks to truly be ranked higher, is a more diversified Fighters pool that would make it less predictable to counter.

Why this Tier?

  • The Tag can benefit from the presence of some of the strongest Fighters in the Meta.

  • The addition of EX LSSJ Broly YEL is a breath of fresh air, since he makes the Team more diverse.

Discussion:

Super Saiyan is still great Offensively and its Synergy is quite good, however it doesn’t have many Team options, thus it’s a quite predictable Team.

Tier 4

Why This Tier?

  • The combination of SP Bunny Bulma GRN and SP Youth Bulma BLU makes this Team’s Damage output unexpectedly dangerous

  • All Core Fighters have awful durability.

Discussion:

Dragon Ball Saga is more of a funny Team concept rather than a seriously competitive Build. While the deceptive Offensive power of this Team could be Effective in skilled hands, the fact that all of its Fighters almost get defeated in one combo is a decisive flaw that makes it bad at high levels.
