Legends Rivals Son Family Vs Lineage of Evil

A resurgence in this unlikely rivalry is once again making its way to the top of the Meta. While Son Family has evolved their strategy to remain competitive throughout the last few seasons, Female Warriors abruptly stopped receiving meaningful support until only recently.

Son Family padded their bulk with SP Goku GRN to pair with SP SS Teen Gohan BLU and added the relentless multi-tool that is SP Angry Goku BLU, giving Son Family not only a strong color wheel, but options within those color options. Then the even more recent release of SP Super Saiyan 3 Goku GRN gives Son Family even more color options within their already perfect color wheel.

Female Warriors as a Tag became all but forgotten after the Anniversary, except for fringe play. No meaningful support arrived for Female Warriors until SP Rozie YEL and SP Kakunsa PUR arrived to fight alongside the Universe 2 veteran, SP Ribrianne BLU. 

Both Tags were top choices for the first Dragon Ball Legends Showdown, and are once again finding themselves competing for steps up the ladder.

This is one of the most hotly contested Rivalries, in fact this one comes down to individual playstyle more than anything as both are extremely effective Teams with opposite strategies.

Son Family is a Tag full of options. Reliable Tanking can be found in SP SS Teen Gohan BLU or SP Goku GRN. Fast Damage Output is covered by Fighters such as SP SS Kid Goten PUR and  SP Gohan GRN, and of course Son Family has the most Legendary Finish capable Fighters with SP Angry Goku BLU, SP SS2 Youth Gohan RED, and SP SS Kid Goten PUR.

Female Fighters believe that a good Defense is a good Offense. Eschewing bulk, save for SP Ribrianne BLU, Female Warriors favor Support for their own through Damage and Gauge Recovery Buffs on top of strong Offensive Fighters like SP Kakunsa PUR and SP Rozie YEL.

SP Ribrianne BLU has the tools to counter SP SS2 Youth Gohan RED before he becomes the Last Man Standing. Her Main Ability locks the opponent from switching and draws her Ultimate Arts Card. Son Family has strong Green options in SP Goku GRN and SP Super Saiyan 3 Goku GRN, either of which could counter SP Ribrianne BLU. Female Warriors without SP Ribrianne BLU become a noticeably weaker Team.

Either Team could stand out in this matchup because both Teams have an effective counter to the other’s star Fighter. 

Son Family barely edges out in this matchup, purely because Son Family without SP SS2 Gohan RED is stronger than Female Warriors with SP Ribrianne BLU. Although Female Warriors can effectively check most Son Family Finishers, SP Angry Goku BLU is still a major problem for the wildly Offensive Team. Son Family is capable of relying on nearly any member to be a Last Man Standing while Female Warriors is dependant, albeit less so since the release of the other Universe 2 Fighters, on SP Ribrianne BLU.
