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 Defensively, but the Team's Supportive Effects make its ace shine even brighter.

Discussion:

Hybrid Saiyans have a many powerful Fighters, with SP SSJ2 Gohan RED being the clear best. The rest of the Core revolves around his capability to take over Matches at any point, in fact Fighters like SP Goten (Kid) YEL, SP Gohan (Adult) BLU and SP Teen Trunks PUR provide him of enough Damage Buffs that he's even capable of putting Blue Fighters on life support.

SP Trunks (Kid) GRN was also a needed additions as he's able to take out SP SSJ2 Gohan RED's main threats in a blink of an eye thanks to his Lock-in.

 

Why this Tier?

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

 

 

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. Right now, the Team has three fantastic Fighters, namely SP Android #18 YEL, SP Android #16 GRN and SP Perfect Cell (Revived) RED, who can face basically any opponent in the Meta without fear. This Team's only issue is the lack of a great Blue, which exposes SP Android #18 YEL to huge risks against SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED.

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. 

 

  • SP SSB Vegeta PUR is an amazing addition for the Team as he can Support any of the Core Fighters extremely well.

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.

 

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

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 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?

  • All the three Fighters in the Core are very versatile and have Crisis Effects.

 

  • The multiple Supportive Effects on this Team make it so the you're capable of inflicting high Damage whatever Core Fighter you're using.

Discussion:

In a weird turn of events, SP SSJ2 Gohan RED and the Legends Road gang Team up, giving life to a fantastic Team setup. In fact, since all the Core Fighters are either Hybrid Saiyan or Son Family (or both), SP SSJ2 Gohan RED synergizes very well with them. This variant of Legends Road is top tier Offensively, and Defensively it can boast high Stats values, Endurance and Cover Effect. The limited Color Wheel is the only thing that's holding back an otherwise flawless Team, but that's going to be fixed as more Legends Road Fighters get released.

Why this Tier?

 

  • Durability and Color diversity issues prevent this Tag from being considered Top Tier.

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. 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 Blue defensive Fighter would work wonders, since this Team just crumbles against SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED.

Why this Tier?

  • The Team has a glaring Ability Bonus issue.

 

  • 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. The addition of SP SSJ2 Gohan RED was necessary to make this Team better in some matchups like Regeneration, but that's not enough to push Son Family to top tier status as its low Ability Bonus makes some Fighters' weaknesses really apparent.

So, at the moment Son Family is a very good Offensive Team, but a Health Z-Ability would fix a lot of its problems.

 

Why this Tier?

  • Regeneration is an incredibly durable Team thanks to SP Perfect Cell (Revived) RED's resurrection Effect and SP Good Buu GRN's Healing capabilities

 

  • Offensively this Team has quite a few options, mainly Demon King Piccolo has a fantastic toolkit.

Discussion:

Regeneration on the rise, thanks to the releases of SP Perfect Cell (Revived) RED and SP Demon King Piccolo YEL. 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. Luckily, the Team has enough versatility to find the right formula in many matchups and it's only really lacking a more competitive Blue.

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 Trunks (Kid) GRN, SP SSB Vegeta PUR and SP Vegeta (Majin) 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.

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?

  • Saiyans have the benefit of being a consistently supported Tag.

  • Zenkai 7 SP Kid Goku YEL and SP Vegeta BLU really carry this Team, which is both a blessing and an issue because  if either of them goes down, Saiyan's chances of winning drop massively.

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. SP Vegeta (Majin) BLU further strengthened the Team by being a top tier Blue melee Fighter. 

However, at the moment this Team is countered by several Fighters, like SP SSJ2 Gohan RED that makes SP Youth Goku YEL a non factor, and SP Android #18 YEL that thrives against Teams that lack strong Red counters.

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 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 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 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.

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?

 

  • The Color Counter structure of this Team's color wheel makes it more vulnerable compared to more diverse Builds.

Discussion:

While Dragon Ball Saga is more of a meme Team concept rather than a seriously competitive Build at very high levels, now that it has two very good Fighters in its Core it packs a serious punch. In fact, Offensively this Team is very dynamic, since it can build a Rising Rush very quickly and constantly hit the Enemy with long Combos. Defensively, the vulnerability against Red Fighters is clear, but SP Kid Goku YEL's Endurance and SP Demon King Piccolo YEL's Dragon Ball stealing capability can slow opponents down.

Why this Tier?

 

Discussion:

The additions of SP Turles YEL and SP SSJ Goku RoC GRN make the Team better Offensively, but Sagas Warriors still fall short compared to other Teams who are much more durable and have even stronger fire power. Better Z-Abilities could really help this Team moving forward.

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.

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 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

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.
