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 Super Baby 2 BLUSP Good Buu GRN  and SP Piccolo YEL make this Team unbearable to Fight thanks to their durability Effects.

  • Offensively this Team is off the charts thanks to the excellent SP Majin #21 PUR.

Discussion:

Regeneration is undoubtedly the best Team in the Meta, the difference between it and the other Teams is so vast that it deserves its own tier. This doesn't mean that Regeneration is totally unbeatable, but its lack of bad matchups makes it extremely versatile. 

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?

  • 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.

Why this Tier?

  • SP 1st Form Frieza PUR makes every Fighter on this Team at least good Offensively.

  • This Team's versatility allows it to rotate between builds without losing  Offensive and Defensed

     

     

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. The show is ran not only by the multiple Frieza variants , but also SP Broly BLU and SP Ginyu Goku RED that make the Team very unique through their Dragon Ball Farming mechanics.

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.

  • After the release of SP Majin #21 PUR and SP Android #21 BLU, this Tag finally got some much needed top Fighters.

 

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. Boasting some of the best Fighters in the Game and a very fitting Deck, Android has all the tools to be a top threat in the Meta.

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 Saiyan Saga Goku BLU is the best possible Support in a mega-Offensive Team such as this one..

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 Bardock 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. HE SSJ3 Shallot LIG made the Team even more versatile and fool-proof.

Why this Tier?

  • The dynamic pair of SP Super Vegito PUR and SP Vegito RED gives Fusion Warrior a strong Core to build around both Offensively and Defensively.

  •  SP Vegito YEL is a warmly welcomed Fighter into Fusion Warrior, giving them a much needed Yellow update.

     

Discussion:

Fusion Warriors are  powerful and are well built to  compete in the Meta, and with the addition of SP Vegito YEL, the Team becomes moreversatile Offensively.. SP Super Vegito PUR’s stats and kit upon release were so far ahead of his peers that he's still a very good fighter almost  a year later, 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.

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?

  • SP Cooler PUR is the main show. While he doesn’t have the flashiest kit, it simply works; elevating the forgotten brother to the most efficient Saiyan genocide machine to date. SP 1st Form Frieza PUR is more of an alternative choice compared to him.

  • The rest of the Team's composition Supports SP Cooler PUR rather well, boasting multiple Color options that can adapt well against most matchups, especially when Saiyans are involved.

Discussion:

Lineage of Evil is a quite bulky Team that can also boast some moments of excellence Offensively depending on the Build. Generally, SP Coora PUR is too good to be replaced by SP 1st Form Frieza PUR, but at times it comes down to preference because their playstyles are very different from each other. The Team revolves around them in a similar fashion, with the only relevant difference being the game rythm, since SP Coora PUR allows you to stall better, while SP 1st Form Frieza PUR demands a faster pace.

Why This Tier?

  • They could use better Color versatility.

  • 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. However, the Team could still improve in diversity regarding Builds, which would make it less predictable.

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 Vegeta GRN and SP Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black RED are still very Offensive good options for this Team and SP SSG Goku PUR is a welcomed Defensive Fighter.

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?

  • SP Majin #21 PUR is the queen of this Tag and the double Support from SP Android #21 BLU and SP Android #18 RED makes her shine ven more.

  • The Universe 2 Fighters are still quite good, if they had different colors this Team would be top tier.

Discussion:

The Team built a hyper-Offensive identity after SP Majin #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.

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 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 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?

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

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?

  • The release of SP SSB Vegeta GRN keeps that momentum going with his fantastic Support and Damage output. 

  • Pure rage translates to overwhelming Damage potential -- being the sole reason this Team will see play -- , but that alone isn't enough in the current Meta.

Discussion:

Still limited in Synergy and Team options, Vegeta Family is having problems to keep up with other Meta Teams. SP SSB Vegeta GRN and SP Teen Trunks PUR form the basis for a devastating Offensive Core capable of the highest consistent Damage, but the Team's Defense is way too low at this point.

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, SP Piccolo YEL and 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. 

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?

  • 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?

  • 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, most notably Saiyan. 

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 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.
