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 Vegito YEL and EX Gogeta RED are very reliable options on the Team, featuring everlasting Offensive Buffs as well as nice Defensive Tools.

Discussion:

Fusion Warriors are  powerful and are well built to  compete in the Meta, as with the addition of SP SSB Vegito BLU and EX Gogeta RED, the Team becomes even more overpowered than before Offensively. Even though this Team doesn't exactly have any form of Defense, the simple fact that its Core is able to corner any Fighter at any point in a Match makes it very consistent. Lastly, considering that both SP SSB Vegito BLU and SP SSJ2 Kefla GRN can remove Damage Reduction, Fusion Warriors are truly unstoppable if they get priority.

Why this Tier?

  • SP SSB Vegito BLU solves a lot of the problems this Team had thanks to his sheer Offensive power. 

 

Discussion:

It's been a while, but Future finally is top tier again. It has a full color wheel, fantastic Offensive capabilities, great Defensive tools and a lot of nifty Capabilities that can take opponents by surprise. Even if SP SSB Vegito BLU doesn't buff Future until 6*, it's not a problem as he Buffs God Ki and Fusion, so even the Ability Bonus is not an issue for this Team. All in all, Future doesn't really have any weakness.

Why this Tier?

  • God Ki has a very solid Z-Abilties pack in its Core, allowing every new release to shine in this Team.

 

Discussion:

God Ki has finally reached Top Tier status again thanks to the release of SP SSB Vegito BLU mainly. This Fighter completely changes the state of the Team by being able to put immense pressure in any matchup,  so he basically makes things much easier for his allies. In fact, Fighters such as SP Fused Zamasu PUR and SP SSB Vegeta GRN can simply take advantage of the openings he generates, making this Team quite deadly on the Offensive end. Last but not least, full color wheel makes this Team pretty diverse, with HE Shallot LIG being a wildcard thanks to his neutral typing.

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?

  • Saiyans are not without ferocious Fighters, especially since recent releases have been Saiyan focused, even allowing multiple choices within the same color. If the composition of a strong team comes down to Supportive Effects and strong Fighters on the field; Saiyans don’t lack in either, especially the latter.

 

Discussion:

As always, the Saiyan Tag has many Fighters to Build a Team with, and is the  easiest Tag to “splash” into custom builds. HE Shallot LIG unlocking his SSG transformation made the rebirth of this Team possible, as previously the "Goku Team" functioned as the Core for both Son Family and Saiyans. On this Team Offense is key, in fact its versatility is high enough that any possible Saiyan Build has high firepower as long as SP Kid Goku YEL is in the main trio. Defensively, the Team can hold its own thanks to Endurance and Damage Reduction Effects.

Overall, Saiyan might not be the best Team in the meta, but it's still a very good idea to invest on it.

Why this Tier?

  • A full Goku Build gives this Team more versatility Z-Ability wise.

 

  • Son Family's Core Fighters are truly terrifying, boasting both very high Offensive Power and pretty decent survivability.

Discussion:

 

 Son Family is Team packed with high Damage Buffs and record setting Ultimate attacks, as well as Healing and Endurance Effects. The addition of SP SSJ4 FP Goku GRN makes this Team more versatile, by being able to counter SP SSB Vegito BLU by color. The Team's main weakness at the moment is its currently Blast focused Deck that definitely doesn't benefit Fighters like SP Kid Goku YEL and SP SSJ4 Goku PUR.

 

Why This Tier?

  • The release of SP SSJ Rage Trunks YEL fixes many of the problems this Team had, since he's the first durable Fighter to join Vegeta Family ever since its birth. 

 

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

Discussion:

 SP SSB Vegeta GRN SP Teen Trunks PUR and Zenkai 7 SP Youth Trunks BLU form the basis for a devastating Offensive Core capable of the highest consistent Damage and SP SSJ Rage Trunks YEL provides the Tankiness this Team was lacking. There really isn't any Team that can put a leash on Vegeta Family if its Fighters get priority, so overall it's on the right direction to become Top Tier in the future.

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. However they really have to outplay Z Tier Teams in order to win against those.

Why this Tier?

  • While Regeneration isn't an incredibly durable Team anymore, its Healing Effects still make it tough to defeat.

 

  • Offensively this Team has quite a few options, mainly SP Evil #21 PUR has a fantastic toolkit.

Discussion:

Regeneration is falling off, but it still manages to hold tight thanks to SP Omega Shenron RED's release that was much needed since SP Super Janemba RED has always been the weakest link of the Team. While Regeneration's Healing numbers haven't decreased, having a full Defensive approach isn't safe in the current Meta since the Offensive capabilities of the top Teams are even more impressive, so to spar with those Regeneration has to mix things up a bit. In this regard, SP Piccolo YEL, SP Evil #21 PUR and SP Omega Shenron RED are all good Offensive Fighters for the Team, but they aren't that impressive anymore by Meta standards, so Regeneration isn't a Top Tier Team anymore.

Why This Tier?

 

  • SP Super Baby 2 BLU is still a great Support Fighter but he's really starting to age Offensively and Defensively.

Discussion:

Half of the 2nd Anniversary banners focused on the GT Tag, releasing Fighters that have significantly improved its state in the Meta. Still, the Tag got the short end of the stick compared to Fusion Warriors, God Ki and Future, as none of its new Fighter is truly game changing and one of them gets directly countered by SP SSB Vegito BLU. All things considered, GT is a very balanced Team, but it'll need something more to reach Top Tier status, maybe a more beneficial Meta situation and a new Yellow.

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 compliments SP FF Cooler BLU rather well, boasting multiple Color options that mainly do well against Saiyan matchups.

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. Even Defensively, SP FP Frieza YEL isn't able to carry the Team anymore as his base Defense stats aren't that high and there are a plenty of Fighters that can take advantage of that by removing his Damage Reduction. Still, the Team hasn't completely declined yet, but compared to top Meta Teams it's definitely at a disadvantage.

Why This Tier?

  • SP Kid Goku YEL and SP Youth Trunks BLU carry this Team thanks to their Zenkai 7 upgrades that make them Offensive powerhouses that can also take some hits. Together, they make a formidable duo.

 

  • While the Team has really limited diversity, it has the highest Ability Bonus value in the Game by quite a margin thanks to the Zenkai Abilities, so its Core is really solid despite SP SSJ Teen Gohan GRN being a really weak link.

Discussion:

Legends Road finally gets a Meta relevant Team thanks to the F2P Zenkai Events that made SP Kid Goku YEL and SP Youth Trunks BLU totally different Fighters compared to before. The entire Build relies on their capability to disrupt any opponent, which is something they can do well, but if any of them gets defeated, that's almost a death sentence for this Team.

In any case, Legends Road will surely get new Zenkai Fighters in the future, so it could really become a Top Tier entity in the Meta. 

Why this Tier?

  • SP Teen Trunks PUR brings consistent Damage to the Team and Core flexibility in Team Builds, since the other Hybrid Saiyans revolve around his powerful Damage Support.

 

  • SP Youth Trunks BLU is a breath of fresh air for this Team, which was looking for a Fighter that could both make the Core more diverse color wise and strengthen it in many ways.

Discussion:

Hybrid Saiyans have a few powerful Fighters, but its Ability Bonus is truly awful compared to some of the Top Teams', featuring multiple Single-Stat Z-Abilities (and some of those don't even Buff all the Fighters in this Build). In any case,  Hybrid Saiyans have an estabilished Strike-focused identity, overall all the Fighters rotate pretty well and can do serious Damage to the opponent.

At the moment the lack of a Green Fighter makes this Team liable Defensively against SP SSB Vegito BLU, so it can't go any higher than tier 1.

Tier 2

What makes a Team 'Tier 2'?

Solid Teams that have the means to compete even against higher tier Teams, but they won't be nearly as consistent and they'll require a lot of expertise to really be competitive.

Why this Tier?

 

  • This Team's versatility allows it to rotate between builds without losing its Core identity.

 

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. While for the most part the Team lacks Fighters that can seriously impact matches by themselves, it's still a solid Build boasting decent Offense and some Defensive tools. Also SP Broly:Cheelai BLU and SP Ginyu Goku RED that make the Team very unique through their Dragon Ball Farming mechanics.

Why this Tier?

 

  • SP SSJ2 Kefla GRN is a nice addition to this Team, although she doesn't get a full Ability Bonus Boost due to not being an Android.

Discussion:

The Team built a hyper-Offensive identity after SP Evil #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, specifically a Yellow Fighter would work wonders. Also, the Ability Bonus is looking pretty shaky and overall this Teams lacks survivability.

Why this Tier?

 

  • The Team has  Ability Bonus and color diversity problems, so even its strong Core is struggling in the current Meta

Discussion:

The additions of SP FP Boujack PUR and SP SSJ Youth Gohan YEL really strengthened this Tag and made it terrifying for a long time, however they're starting to stagnate as the recent additions didn't particularly change the state of the Team if at all, so other Teams surpassed Sagas Warriors. In particular, the lack of a Green Fighter exposes them against SP SSB Vegito BLU.

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.

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.

 

 

Discussion:

Androids main ploy is their Synergy, working together like a well oiled machine. In fact, sporting some of the best Double Buffing Z-Abilities in the Game means that any new Android coming in will receive a warm welcome. However, it's too much to ask SP Evil #21 PUR to carry this Team even against top Meta Teams, as most her Teammates are cleary outdated.

Why this Tier?

  • The goofy gaggle of multi-colored Ginyu goons are still some of the best 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 3 because their solidity has really fallen off after the 2nd Anniversary. The way the Ginyu Force's toolkits work, all Fighters have to stay alive to preserve the Buffs each of them gets so if even one of them falls, the Team's overall Effectiveness has a drop. This condition makes the Team too situational in the current Meta,  since it lacks a good Green and so it's weak against SP SSB Vegito BLU

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?

  • Having the possibility to pair up SP Angry Goku BLU and SP FF FP Frieza YEL make an iconic Combo, but they're not really impressive in the current Meta.

 

  • While it's a Saga based Team, it has an unexpectedly good pack of Z-Abilities.

Discussion:

This Team's success heavily relies on SP Angry Goku BLU and SP FF FP Frieza YEL to shine, by pairing them with either EX Krillin PUR, EX Nail PUR or SP Ginyu Goku RED, so with a Fighter that can Support them through Damage Buffs. Sadly, they're just not that good compared to the best Fighters in the Meta anymore, so the Team really fails at even having low chances of pulling off a win against very good Builds in this Meta. Luckily, at least Frieza Saga has some good Z-Abilities, so it's a Tag that could easily become good if graced with relevant updates.

Why This Tier?

 

  • Most 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.

Why This Tier?

  • This Team is far less together than their ever present Saiyan brothers, of which every member of this Team can find themselves on to greater viability.

 

  • Their rigid playstyle and obvious candidate for Last Man Standing makes this Team reminiscent of Son Family during the 1st Anniversary, but with far less Synergy and viability on the field.

Discussion:

While the Team captain, SP Bardock RED, enjoys many Defeated Buffs on top of his own kit geared to make him a powerful Last Man Standing, this Team plays more like a gimmick than an actual Meta viable Team. Plagued by inconsistent releases and only just receiving a dedicated Tag, it's much kinder to view this Team as the groundwork for what can come instead of comparing them as is against other competitive Teams.

Why This Tier?

  • Saiyan Saga has enough unique Synergy to justify a Team on their own, but only just. They still pale in comparison to a true Saiyan Team.

 

  • Bench woes keep the punches softer on every Team member, all of which prefer placement on other Teams.

Discussion:

Following the trend of Saga-based Teams, Saiyan Saga seems to hinge it's entire Synergy on the Support provided by SP Saiyan Saga Goku BLU. The most glaring issue with this Team is the lack of shared Tags between it's two strongest members, namely SP Piccolo YEL and the already mentioned SP Saiyan Saga Goku BLU. Outside of the aforementioned Saga Tag, This Team's Core and Bench options are exclusively this Core provided by the current Banner, as other Saiyan Saga Fighters have not been released in quite some time, leaving those older Fighters too outdated to even compete.
