Tier Z

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. In short, these Teams are clearly superior to the other placed lower in this list.

Why this Tier?

- SP SSJ2 Gohan RED is this Team's carry, since he can make his Teammates better while inflicting incredible Damage right off the bat.

- Hybrid Saiyans are still lacking something when it comes to raw defense, but SP SSJ Gohan YEL 6* defensive gimmicks make the Team feel safe.

Discussion:

Hybrid Saiyans have a many powerful Fighters, with SP SSJ2 Gohan RED  and SP SSJ2 Trunks BLU being the clear aces Offensively. The rest of the Core revolves around their capabilities to take over Matches at any point, with SP SSJ Gohan YEL 6*  being a Fighter you can constantly rely on to protect them. EX Gohan GRN is also a pretty good Fighter all around, which can fit them on the Team both thanks to his Offensive capabilities, and his Defensive contribution ( although remember he needs to be used with a Trunks to get all of his Buffs ).

Overall, this composition is just incredibly strong Offensively, but without SP SSJ Gohan YEL 6*, it's noticeably lackluster Defensively.

 

 

Why this Tier?

- Regeneration isn't a heavily Defensive minded like in the past, but it can still boast some of the most annoying Healing capabilities in the Meta.

Offensively, the Team's Blast Damage is pretty high and the key to its success.

Discussion:

Regen is a very strong Team, In fact, in the past few months, fighters that specifically counter this Team like SP SSJ3 Goku PUR and SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED have taken the Meta by storm, but Regeneration fought back with the addition of multiple Fighters that improved the  Core Build drastically. All in all, the Team thrives thanks to all the way it has to disrupt the opponents' plans while still inflicting enormous Damage.

Why this Tier?

- Saiyans are the focal point of Dragon Ball in general, so they'll always receive frequent additions.

- The Team has many great Offensive, Defensive and Supportive options.

Discussion:

As always, the Saiyan Tag has many Fighters to Build a Team with, and is the  easiest Tag to “splash” into custom builds. As a result, the Team has most colors covered by very powerful Zenkai Fighters, which makes it very versatile. Something pretty interesting about the Saiyan is that it's a Team that excels both Offensively and Defensively, since Fighters like SP Angry Goku BLU and SP SSJ3 Goku GRN are very balanced, and SP Vegeta YEL is a great Defensive Support.

Tier S

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, which hurts their consistency compared to Z tier Teams. 

Why this Tier?

- Zenkais' high stats and SP LSSJ Broly GRN's Defensive utility make the Team quite durable despite the lack of a HP Z-Ability.

- SP Super Gogeta RED and SP LSSJ Broly BLU are essential for this Team, as their Offensive upside is its main win condition.

Discussion:

Sagas Warriors received multiple releases recently, which made it a strong Offensive Team, but it's not at the same level as S/Z Tier Teams. SP Super Gogeta RED is the leader of this Team, as he's really strong and consistent right off the bat, SP LSSJ Broly BLU is the perfect sidekick , and SP LSSJ Broly GRN makes the Team well balanced thanks to his high survivability

Why this Tier?

- Androids have a vast amount of Fighters with double stat Z-Abilities, so Building this Team isn't hard at all.

- SP Android #18 YEL, basically carries this Team Offensively, while her allies are either meant to Support her or protect her.

 

Discussion:

Androids main ploy is their Synergy, working together like a well oiled machine, and sporting some of the best Double Buffing Z-Abilities in the Game means that any new Android coming in will receive a warm welcome. Right now, the Team is filled with fantastic Fighters, like SP Android #18 YEL, SP Super #17 GRNand SP Perfect Cell (Revived) RED, who can face basically any opponent in the Meta without fear. 

Why this Tier?

- God Ki has a very solid Supportive Abilities in its Core, allowing every new release to shine in this Team.

-  SP SSB Goku BLU is the staple of this Team, as he makes things much easier for those around him.

Discussion:

God Ki is a very good Team, which can benefit from plenty of different Fighters and Builds. Mainly, Vados is the one you almost always want to use as she's the heart of the Team thanks to her fantastic Support Abilities. You can surround her of any Core Fighter, and the Team will do well.

This lineup as a whole has very Effective Defensive mechanics, a lot of Supportive Effects that magnify the already high Offensive capabilities of the Core Fighters, all sorts of gimmicks, and decisive Ultimate Moves that can knock out even fierce Defensive Fighters.

Why this Tier? 

- SP SSJ2 Gohan RED characterizes this Team, as he's the best Offensive option, both in early and late game.

Son Family's Core Fighters are truly terrifying, boasting both very high Offensive Power annoyingly Effective Late Game tools.

Discussion:

 

 Son Family is Team packed with high Damage Buffs and record setting Ultimate attacks, as well as Healing and Endurance Effects, but it's a bit limited by the bad Ability Bonus as a whole, despite the multitude of Zenkai Abilities. Mainly, the Team isn't very durable, as any of the Fighters in the Core will feel Tankier elsewhere. Still, the Team is filled with fantastic individual Fighters, which show their strengths in late-game especially, making Son Family great at pulling off huge comebacks.

 

Why This Tier?

- Super Saiyan has been revived by SP SSJ Bardock BLU's Zenkai.

- Zenkais made the Tag viable and diverse, especially SP Super Gogeta RED.

Discussion:

Super Saiyan is a fantastic Offensive Team that partially relies on Bardock's capabilities of being a good enough Support to generate Team synergy.  SP Super Gogeta RED, and more situationally SP Angry Goku BLU, really thrive alongside Bardock, becoming unstoppable war machines. Lastly SP LSSJ Broly GRN makes the Team balanced thanks to his Defensive utility.

Why this Tier?

- Future has a good Blast based Build, but the Strike based Build is the S tier one.

- The Team has many different options, but the importance of having 6* LFs can't be downplayed.

Discussion:

Future is a Team that received a lot of love in terms of new releases in the past year, and as such it's not uncommon for people to have some kind of working composition for the Tag. At the same time, peak Future is one of the hardest Builds to make, as it features plenty of LFs, with some of them requiring 4-6* to perform greatly.  This variant is called Strike Future, and it features Fighters like SP SSR Goku Black PUR, SP Corrupted Zamasu RED, and SP SSJ Gohan YEL, who all fit much better in a Strike Based Build as opposed to a Blast Based one. The Team flows well thanks to its constant gimmicks, both Debuffs based and Cover based, which make it hard for the opponent to find a proper counter play.

The Blast Based Build is also pretty good, but it's less Effective mainly because it's less durable, but also because it can't match the disruptive capabilities the Strike Based comp has.

Why this Tier?

- Powerful Opponent have a multitude of great Fighters, varying strong Offensive threats to useful Defensive option.


- The Team finally has a full set of good Z-Abilities.

Discussion:

The group of the most evil characters in the Dragon Ball universe is shaping up, and now it finally has multiple Builds. SP Buu:Kid BLU and SP Demon King Piccolo PUR are staples in the Blast based composition, as both ( but Kid Buu specifically, as he's great right off the bat ) can deal huge Blast Damage for long stretches.

The Strike Based build is reminiscing of Future, as it features the SP SSR Goku Black PUR - SP Corrupted Zamasu RED among others. The overall Damage output is similar to the Blast based composition, but this one has more disruptive capabilities in terms of Debuffs and such ( although it can't match the Blast Based Build's long-combos Capabilities ).

 

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 strongest Teams in the Meta, as they have very powerful Fighters and solid Win Conditions. However they really have to outplay Z Tier Teams in order to win against those.

Why This Tier?

SP SSJ4 Vegeta RED and SP SSJ4 Goku PUR are really strong Offensive options for the Team.

GT has a solid basis thanks to Zenkai awakening, it's a really durable Team with great individual Offensive Fighters, it only needs a Support to reach next level.

Discussion:

After a drought which lasted almost 10 months, GT started getting new Fighters again. Mainly, the Zenkais have been really impactful for the Team, improving it to the point it reached top of Tier 1 again ( it stayed in tier 3 for months before this ). The Team is pretty durable thanks to Super #17 and SSJ4 Goku, and Offensively it has decent potential as well, although the mixed deck is not ideal for anybody on the Core. The Anniversary brought new Fighters and diversified the Core, but ultimately, the Team definitely needs a Support to improve even more.

Why this Tier?

- SP Android #18 YEL is the queen of this Tag and SP Android #21 BLU is the perfect partner in crime for her.

- SP Vados GRN's provides basically any Effect you'd want from a Supportive Fighter.

Discussion:

The Team built a hyper-Offensive identity after SP Android #18 YEL's release, boasting some of the highest Damage potential in the Meta. Female Warriors is probably the Team where her Damage Output reaches its peak, as she's surrounded by Supports. SP SSJ2 Caulifla PUR's Zenkai was also helpful as it made the Team more balanced and versatile.

Why this Tier?

- The dynamic pair of SP SSJ4 Gogeta GRN  and  SP SSB Vegito BLU makes things very easy for Fusion Warriors in early Game thanks to Blast Armor and long Combos.

-  Super Gogeta Z7 is still fantastic all around.

Discussion:

The optimal Fusion Warriors Build differs a lot depending on how many stars you have on the LFs. The Zenkai Blast based variant with SP Gogeta BLU Z7 is cheap, and also way more durable than the Zenkai variant since it can benefit from the combined effort of two Zenkais with very high Defensive stats. SP SSB Vegito PUR fits very well there, as he's also Blast Based.

On the other hand, the 6* LFs version is more Strike Based and it's less durable, but its ceiling is higher because the Fusion LFs just have plenty of gimmicks to trick the opponent with, and as a result they make it hard for him to even initiate an Offense at times ( specifically, Blast armor and SP SSB Gogeta YEL's Extra Move are constant threats ).

Why This Tier?

- Rival Universe combines excellent Defensive tools with powerful Offensive bursts.

-  VadosBergamo, and Toppo are all Fightes that make the Team pretty durable.

Discussion:

Rival Universe has a very good structure and it's ready to be relevant in the Meta. Its color-wheel is complete, although it could use a better Purple, and each Fighter on the Team has a clear purpose. Vados is the engine of the Team, alongside her both Toppo and Bergamo became much harder to defeat, and Fighters like Jiren can erupt Offensively with no particular build up. 

Why this Tier?

- SP FF Cooler BLU is the main show, since his combination of monstrous Offensive Power and fantastic Supportive Effects make this Team fast paced and deadly.

- The rest of the Team's composition complements SP FF Cooler BLU rather well, specifically SP FF Frieza RED is a very strong Offensive Fighter that can disrupt the opponents' plans with his Debuffs.

Discussion:

Lineage of Evil can boast some moments of excellence Offensively, but it has definitely lost its luster after the Anniversary's Meta Shift. In fact, while in the past this Team was probably the best Offensive one, now there are a lot of Teams that are least on par or even better in that regard and have just better Fighters than Lineage of Evil's. SP FF Frieza RED is a step in the right direction, but he's not enough on his own.

Why This Tier?

SP SSJ2 Trunks BLU and SP SSJ4 Vegeta RED made the Team Blast based.

- This Team has incredible Offensive potential thanks to the multitude of Supporting Effects its Fighters have.

 

Discussion:

 

SP Vegeta YEL, SP SSJ4 Vegeta RED and SP SSJ2 Trunks BLU form the basis for a fantastic Offensive Core having a lot of nifty tools, which are useful to disorientate opponents ( primarily Substitution Counts Reduction Effects ) . Still, the Team needs something more to make the final step, specifically a great Green option that can cover SSJ4 Vegeta.

Why this Tier?

SP 1st Form Frieza PUR makes every Fighter on this Team shine Offensively.

Blast Damage is Frieza Force's identity, as EX Vegeta YEL and EX 1st Form Frieza BLU are strong Ranged Fighters.

 

Discussion:

SP 1st Form Frieza PUR's Support has been the "Water Of Youth" for this Team in early 2020, and it's still relevant to this day after the EX Zenkai came and strengthened the Team. EX Vegeta YEL and EX 1st Form Frieza BLU are pretty dangerous alongside him, but even others like EX Raditz BLU can contribute to make Frieza Force a decent Team overall.

Why This Tier?

-  Universe Survival is a decent, but unfinished Team.

-  17 and Toppo are great staples for the Team moving forward.

Discussion:

Universe Survival is pretty much still a work in progress Team, as it's effectively a weaker variant of Rival Universe17 and Toppo are the most important Fighters on the Team since they're the most versatile, but Fighters like Bergamo and Ultra Instinct Goku are pretty respectable as well. The Team primarily needs a Support and a Green option to reach the next level.

Why This Tier?

- The Zenkai power of SP Demon King Piccolo YEL raises this Team's Offensive ceiling.

- Yamcha and Lunch are good additions, but the real game changer is SP Demon King Piccolo PUR.

Discussion:

Dragon Ball Saga has very glaring flaws, like the lack of any sort of Defensive utility, but it finally started to improve after SP Demon King Piccolo PUR's release. Now the Team has various different Builds that can do well Offensively, and it has a promising basis for the future.

Tier 2

What makes a Team 'Tier 2'?

Solid Teams, but they have a lot of matchup problems against higher tier ones that make them inconsistent in the Meta.

Why This Tier?

- SP Kid Goku YEL and SP Youth Trunks BLU are the staples of this Team thanks to their Zenkai 7 .

- Legends Road Zenkai Abilities make this Team have one of the highest Ability Bonus values in the entire game.

Discussion:

Legends Road has a good structure, but nothing more than that at the moment. SP Youth Goku YEL and SP Youth Trunks BLU are just not enough to carry this Team anymore, and SP Gotenks GRN wasn't a good enough addition to push this Team to new heights. Overall, it's a nice balanced F2P Team, but the outlook for the future isn't bright.

Tier 3

What makes a Team 'Tier 3'?

Teams here are generally the ones that are really disadvantaged against some of the higher Tier Teams and would need to be played perfectly, or even be very lucky, to have chances at winning if matched up with those.

Tier 4

"What Makes A Team Tier 4?"

It's really hard to justify playing these Teams competitively in the Meta. The Teams listed here are basically fun Builds that are meant to be played for some matches before being swapped for actual Meta Teams. 

Why this Tier?

- The goofy gaggle of multi-colored Ginyu goons are still some of the synergetic EX Fighters in the Game, boasting also incredible Equips choices that still make their stats pretty decent, however after the 2nd Anniversary Meta Shift this Team really lost its luster.

- The nature of this Team makes it hard for it to receive frequent updates.

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 down to Tier 4 because their consistency has really fallen off after the 2nd Anniversary, as they lack Fighters that can go head to head with S-Z tier threats. 

Why This Tier?

- They have a Core that synergizes well, but each Fighter on there is one-dimensional, so the Team has a few apparent flaws as a result.

- Super Warriors doesn't have many Z-Ability options.

Discussion:

Super Warrior's attempt at becoming a relevant Team is rather timid. While they have enough Fighters to make a three man core, that's still not enough as the Team lacks diversity color wise, and even dismissing that, the current Super Warriors aren't strong enough individually to compete against great Fighters in the current Meta.
