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.

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 Golden Frieza GRN and SP FF Coora BLU make a nightmarish Offensive partnership, especially against Saiyan Teams thanks to the former’s Anti-Saiyan Unique Ability.

  • SP Cooler PUR is the main show, though. While he doesn’t have the flashiest kit, it simply works; elevating the forgotten brother to the most efficient Saiyan genocide machine to date.

Discussion:

While Lineage of Evil still suffers from not having many great Z-Abilities, its fearful Offense and annoying Defense makes it a Z Tier Team. SP FF FP Frieza YEL’s color and toolkit make him one of the toughest Tank in the current Meta, and a much needed addition for this Tag, but on top of that, this Tag receives even more terrifying support with SP Cooler PUR and SP FF Frieza RED, with the former pushing around the Saiyan heavy Meta with only the prodigal son, SP SSJ Youth Gohan YEL, to fear.

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 Z-Ability Support and strong Fighters on the field; Saiyans don’t lack in either, especially the latter.

  • SP Angry Goku BLU could be seen as the centerpiece for the Oldest Tag, bringing both a powerful Double Offense Buffing Z-Ability and almost inarguably the most broken kit in the Game, but that doesn’t even touch the legions of powerful Allies who can all work independently and interchangeably within the Team.

Discussion:

As always, the Saiyan Tag has many Fighters to Build a Team with, and is the easiest Tag to “splash” into custom builds. Having access to not only the most recently released Offensive horrors in SP SSJ4 Goku PUR and SP SSJ4 Vegeta RED, the most Health Z-Abilities, and powerful secondary Tags, but also the widest range of viable Fighters to fill any role from Offense, Defense, and Support.

Why this Tier?

  • God Ki’s impressive roster brought the Tag from irrelevance to dominance alongside Fusion Warrior during the 1 Year Anniversary with a strategy reminiscent of Holy Trinity with EX Whis RED providing similar support to that of SP SSJ Bardock BLU for his Team.

  • Going even further beyond, SP SSB Vegeta GRN and the long anticipated SP Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black RED brought this already solid Team past the threshold into greatness.

Discussion:

The in battle Synergy with this Team is tight as a drum. Every Core Fighter supports every other Core Fighter in meaningful ways, passing Damage Buffs, restoring Ki, or acting as a solid early game Tank, making this Team a viable rival to their alternative universe SSJ4 counterparts from GT. Every Core Fighter also sharing a Saiyan Tag allows for a wider selection of Z-Abilities, even another Health Z, which gives back a solid chunk of Health with nearly every Fighter’s self-Heal and SP SSB Goku BLU’s early game Defenses a true hassle in the opening Counts of the match.

Why this Tier?

  • Sagas Warrior is a very strong and versatile Tag now thanks to the addition of SP FP Boujack PUR.

  • Sagas Warriors diverse Build option make it quite versatile Z-Abilities wise as well, however they still lack a Health Z-Ability.

Discussion:

The additions of SP FP Boujack PUR and SP SSJ Youth Gohan YEL really strengthened this Tag, making it one of the strongest in the entire Meta. Boasting incredible Offensive power and tough Defensive Abilities.

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. This Tier represents Teams who could mechanically work as 'Z' Tier Teams if not for the slightest of deficiencies. 

Why this Tier?

  • EX Nail PUR is a good addition and brings depth to a quite unimpressive Tag prior to his arrival, but the real breath of fresh air came in the form of SP Super Baby 2 BLU.

  • Regeneration can disrupt the Enemy’s rhythm through oppressive Extra Moves and strong Offensive Abilities, especially now with SP Buu: Kid RED on the Team.

Discussion:

Regeneration, having once been an insurmountable wall, lost its identity for a time. Toying with becoming an Offense focused Team, The mediocre -- but not terrible -- SP Buu: Kid RED did little to revitalize this Team, who for all accounts, were counted out. SP Super Baby 2 BLU’s Team-wide support brings even older Fighters back into the field. Once again, SP Zamasu RED can withstand Rising Rushes and deal extra Damage to Saiyans and Hybrid Saiyans. SP UGA Buu GRN can Heal and disrupt to a higher degree, and SP Super Baby 2 BLU himself fills the weakest color of the Team. While he does well for this Team, it’s still a long shot before they become the Meta defining nightmare that they once were.

Why this Tier?

  •  

  • Both iterations of Golden Form Frieza, SP FF Frieza RED, and SP Golden Frieza GRN are the pinnacle of Frieza Force power and the undisputed champion for this Tag, and SP FF FP Frieza YEL is the perfect partner for him as he can continuously be his bodyguard, while being strong Offensively.

  • The Ginyu Force additions made the Team much more versatile, both in Battle and Bench wise.

     

     

Discussion:

The Frieza Force Team has been powercrept to the point of oblivion, only to become playable again with the release of SP Golden Frieza GRN. Now that the Ginyu Force has landed on Namek as well, and that Frieza has reached his 100% Form, Frieza Force has enough workforce to face the Meta without fear, although focusing on Frieza Force seems to be a subpar option compared to the much more terrifying Lineage of Evil.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Fusion Warriors are highly powerful and are well built to consistently compete in the Meta, and with the addition of SP Super #17 GRN, Lineage of Evil and Frieza Force are less problematic matchups compared to before, although SP Cooler PUR is still a threat to the entire Team. 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?

  • Poor Z-Ability Synergy and Summoning issues has left Son Family without the support for its top Fighters; a shame as Son Family has access to some of the most effective Fighters in the Game. 

  • Boasting more Legendary Finish capable Fighters than any other Tag, Son Family could become a threat through overwhelming Ultimate Damage.

Discussion:

 

This team could be seen as the exact opposite of Android, as they have strong Fighters from Hybrid Saiyans, GT, Saiyans, even Sagas Warriors but lack Z-Ability Support; the opposite problem that Androids carry., Son Family curates the best of these Tags into one supercharged Team packed with high Damage Buffs and record setting Ultimate attacks. The amount of viable Core options lets Son Family bend around the Color wheel or even Teams with Anti-Saiyan or Anti-Hybrid Saiyan Abilities. Son Family is likely to always receive further Support, as Goku and Gohan variants are some of the most common.

Although Son Family is an assured Tag to always receive updated Fighters, as it’s members are the most commonly released in the Game, it has been some months since Son Family received meaningful Z-Abilities to support those threats, leaving those individual Fighters preferring one of their many other Team options. Also, while boasting more Legendary Finish capable Fighters than any other Team, the Legends Limited rarity associated with those Fighters make it much harder to summon them to a competitive Star Level, especially since the Big Update from 12/4/2019.

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 Strike potential -- being the sole reason this Team will see play -- which is respectable in its own right as this Team fairs quite well on that Damage potential alone, forgoing the Defensive, Healing, and Control options that other Teams enjoy.

Discussion:

Still limited in Synergy and Team options, Vegeta Family still seems to keep pace with other top Teams with it’s overwhelming and consistent Strike Damage. SP Vegeta BLU and SP Teen Trunks PUR form a devastating Core capable of the highest consistent Strike Damage. The recent release of SP SSJ4 Vegeta RED, while being a Blast Fighter himself, still is a welcome addition in power, color, and Z-Ability.

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?

  • 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.

  • Although their color selection and Z-Abilities are great, the lack of an up-to-date stand out Fighter has once again powercrept Androids. As always, their strong Z-Ability Support means a new champion is all they need to shine again.

 

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. Their issue currently is they lack an updated champion to carry the Team in the face of the revitalized Saiyan-based Teams running around.

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.

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 Gohan GRN inflict hellish amounts of Damage. Future also has some decent bench options like SP Perfect Cell YEL.

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?

  • 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 Ribrianne BLU still remains the champion for this Tag, which is not a terribly positive fact for this forgotten Team as nearly every other Team has a much stronger Blue Fighter and better Support around them.

  • The Universe 2 Build is amazing offensively, but it needs 5* Z-Abilities to be great Defensively as well.

Discussion:

This Team made a strong showing opposite Son Family during the Anniversary and was briefly rejuvenated by SP Kakunsa PUR and SP Rozie YEL as the long-awaited partners SP Ribrianne BLU needed to make her force recognizable in PvP again. The Team, having once been tremendous Offensively, is now plagued by the lack of durability prior to unlocking the newest Fighter’s 5* Z-Abilities. This keeps Female Warriors out of higher tiers along with the lack of meaningful updates in quite some time.

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.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

SP Hit YEL was made for this Build, and with SP FF FP Frieza YEL always being ready to protect him, his fragility is not that big of a problem as it would normally be. However, this Team is already  massively weaker compared to weeks ago, due to multiple Meta Shifts that have made YYB much easier to counter.

Why This Tier?

  • SP Angry Goku BLU and SP FF FP Frieza YEL make an incredible combo

  • This Build’s dependence to hardly reachable Z-Abilities makes it improbable.

Discussion:

Frieza Saga at full potential would arguably be a S Tier Team. The overwhelming presence of SP Angry Goku BLU and SP FF FP Frieza YEL, coupled with the Support offered by either EX Krillin PUR or EX Nail PUR and the multiple incredible Z-Abilities, would make this Build very competitive in PVP. The fact that the Synergy of this Team is hidden behind a paywall hugely penalizes its placement.

Why this Tier?

  • Red Color-Counter is a powerful Team with the Healing utility of SP Metal Coora RED This Team's top Fighters are better fits on other Teams.

  • This Team's top Fighters are better fits on other Teams.

Discussion:

Red Color-Counter is home to many powerful Fighters including SP Golden Frieza GRN and SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED, but suffers the common flaw of Color-Counter Teams in that its most powerful Fighters were made to Synergize with other Teams.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Just like with Super Saiyans, this Blue Color-Counter packs an impressive punch but they also share the same durability problems. Due to being a color-counter, they lack the former’s diversity.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Powerful Fighters like SP SSB Vegeta PUR, SP Super Vegito PUR, and an association to the most powerful Saiyan Teams keeps this Team afloat. However, this is the least powerful color counter at the moment due to the current state of the Meta.

Why this Tier?

  • This color has a powerful Build, and thanks to SP FF FP Frieza YEL, it can hold his own even against Teams having powerful Purple Fighters

  • Green Color-Counter has an advantage over Blue Fighters, which is a popular color in PVP at the moment.

Discussion:

Green Color-Counter brings solid Fighters to the field. It works as a Frieza Force variant, minus the healing and the color versatility that is always helpful.

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.
