Tier Z

What makes a Fighter ‘Z Tier’?

The absolute best Fighters in the game. These Fighters have a team or multiple Teams built around them, and have full Team support which allows them to accentuate how powerful their toolkits are. They also own an Ability that exerts control over core game systems and forces Enemy Teams to play around a single Fighter.

SP Super Saiyan God SS Vegito (Blue)
Explanation

Stats

HP 2494268
Strike ATK 259278
Blast ATK 245773
Strike DEF 160539
Blast DEF 160240

Why this Tier?

  • He does basically everything.
  • No, seriously, he does everything barring Support and Endurance.

Discussion:

Every now and again, Dragon Ball Legends releases a revolutionary Fighter, and SP SSB Vegito BLU is just that. He can sustain himself, he can output freakish amounts of Damage, and he’s also surrounded by the best Fighters in the game just to illuminate just how good he is. Future and Godki feel like the Fusion Warrior Team of last year on steroids, thanks to him and others.

Why this Tier?

  • Despite the grinding required to unlock him, he’s technically free to play and can be limit broken to 14 stars, with Zenkai 7.
  • He does some of the highest Damage in the game and has Support built into his toolkit as well

Discussion

The Tier List will assume SP Kid Goku YEL is Zenkai 7 because unlike other Fighters that have received Zenkai Boosts, he’s free to play. As more and more people unlock his full potential, it will quickly become apparent how good he is.

Strike ATK 232880

Blast DEF 160539

Why this Tier?

  • He’s a hellacious Ranged Fighter but also has many Defensive aspects in his toolkit.
  • He’s the primary Purple Fighter on both God Ki and Future.

Discussion

The longer the Match goes, the stronger SP Merged Zamasu PUR becomes, but only a mere 15 timer counts need to pass for his most coveted Buff: 40% Damage inflicted which cannot be canceled. He pairs nicely with SP SSB Vegito BLU as he protects him from Green Fighters, and both Fighters have a form of Cover to act as a reliable Defensive pivot.

HP 2423944

Why this Tier?

  • He’s an excellent all-around Fighter and leader for the God Ki and Vegeta Family  Teams. He shines Offensively with ferocious Combo potential and can defend himself as well.
     
  • His Main Ability is a borderline guaranteed kill, or at the very least keeps momentum going for his Team. He also reduces his card costs with every Strike or Blast Arts used.
     
     

Discussion:

God Ki and Future just needed to stop being neglected for SP SSB Vegeta GRN to shine once more, and with the releases of SP SSB Vegito BLU, SP Fusion Zamasu PUR, and SP SSJ Rag Trunks YEL, he will do just that. He's especially nice vs SP SSB Vegito BLU due to the extra Damage he does to God Ki.

Tier S

What makes a Fighter 'S Tier'?

Not too drastically different from the Fighters in Z Tier, these Fighters have a few minuscule flaws that don’t let them take over the game consistently, or lack proper Tag Support which in turn compromises how well they perform, but are still on the cusp of Z Tier.

HP 2545299

Why this Tier?

  • He’s a great Defense Fighter that gets more Damage inflicted Buffs the more he or his Teammates are hit.
  • It’s not necessarily his primary job on the Team, but he can struggle to do Damage until he’s ramped up.

Discussion

Luckily for him, despite what Damage problems he might run into, he still draws an Ultimate Move that does a ton of Damage, and slots into arguably the best Team in the game currently in Future. He also has a nice additional Damage Buff against any God Ki as well as Regeneration characters, both of which are going to be quite common in the Meta

Why this Tier?

  • He has excellent base stats after Transforming, and is well-rounded Offensively
  • His Main Ability after Transforming is absolutely devastating to any non-Red Fighter.

Discussion:


His “This is Super Vegito!!” Main Ability draws him an enhanced Special Arts Card after he’s used a few cards (which is ideally when it should be activated), which is something that must be played around. This sequence is eerily similar to the one-shot potential SP SSJ Youth Gohan YEL has.

HP 2347101

Strike DEF 154770
Blast DEF 151425

Why this Tier?

  • She has maybe the best Damage and longest, most effective Combo potential in the game.
  • She’s excessively fragile, to the point where she takes punishment just as much as she gives it.

Discussion

SP SSJ2 Kefla GRN’s addition to Fusion Warrior and Female Warriors skyrockets their Offensive firepower. Unfortunately even with her Damage reduction Unique Ability, she is a liability Defensively. Her constantly being at risk of getting killed in just one or two Combos hurts her viability and keeps her out of Z.

Why this Tier:

  • He has quite similar aspects to someone like SP SSJ2 Kefla GRN, although he’s Blast oriented.
  • He’s pretty one dimensional Offensively, and his Team could use some better Z-Ability synergy.

Discussion:

Saiyans finally get an excellent primary Green for the Tag, but he also works great in GT alongside SP SSJ4 Vegeta RED and the new SP Omega Shenron RED

HP 2364695

Why this Tier?

  • He has monstrous Damage, Combo, and Defensive potential.

  • It’s hard to point out a huge flaw he has. His Extra Move isn’t oppressive, but that’s not necessarily a flaw either.

Discussion:

SP SSJ4 Goku PUR popping onto the battlefield means trouble for anyone who stands in his way. With massive Damage inflicted, Ki Restore on entry, Damage reduction, an Ultimate Move, and a Special Move that traps his opponent, he does it all and  has a ton of sustain to stay in the fight.

Why this Tier?

  • Her stats are among some of the best in the game after she Transforms
     
  • She has many viable Tags and her Offense is similar to a prime SP SSB Vegeta PUR, but better
     

Discussion

With her great Strike Damage, wealth of Tags, excellent synergy with these Tags, excellent base stats, and Extra Move which heals her and permanently stacks Damage inflicted Buffs, she was among the best in the game on release. While she’s still good, Regeneration is going to be taking a bit of a backseat to Teams like Future and God Ki.

Why this Tier?

  • He some huge Damage potential, an excellent Extra Move, Dragon Ball manipulation and an Ultimate Move that hits everyone on the opposing Team
  • His status ailments are a bit inconsistent, and he’s not too safe in the current Meta.

Discussion:

SP Omega Shenron RED is definitely someone that has to be played around and has some serious game-changing potential. That being said, he must be kept far, far away from SP SSB Vegito BLU as he not only owns a color advantage over him but an additional Damage Buff against Fusion Warriors

HP 2429091

Strike DEF 154266
Blast DEF 151555

Why this Tier?

  • Whether he’s entering the battlefield, drawing Cards, or on the receiving end of a Combo, he has a seemingly endless amount of Damage inflicted Buffs.

  • His Main Ability restores his own Health by a massive 30%, gives him 50 Ki instantly, increases his Damage inflicted and draws an Ultimate Arts Card. His Ultimate Move itself does massive Damage on top of it all.

Discussion

SP SSB Vegito BLU’s addition to the game continues to help the Fusion Warrior Tag grow, and SP Super Vegito PUR benefits tremendously. His Z-Ability is crucial for the Tag, and his Unique Abilities continue to keep him consistently strong. However, he does not have the same effectiveness as the current Z-Tier Fighters, and if SP SSB Vegito BLU can’t catapult him into Z, his days there are certainly finished. Not that there’s any shame with being a solid S Tier Fighter.

  • His Damage is a little bit on the lower side, but luckily his durability and Support make up for it.
     
     

Discussion:

Even with his somewhat situational Damage output, he’s still surrounded by solid Regeneration Fighters that can help make up for it. Unfortunately, it seems like Regenerations reign at the very top has ended for now.

  • He alongside someone like SP Super Baby 2 BLU make Regeneration a slog to fight against.

Discussion

His recent Zenkai Awakening makes him as durable as ever, and makes Regeneration back into the Team that wins PVP Matches via long, drawn out attrition. If Zenkai 1 has not been achieved, he's still an excellent bench.

  • His Debuff to the entire Enemy Team makes it extremely hard to deal with him and his Teammates.
     
  • His Main Ability nullifies color disadvantage against Blues for 30 timer counts.
     

Discussion

While he’s ever so slightly fallen off a bit due to the naturally occurring power creep, he’s still an exceptional Offensive fighter and his Team-wide Debuff is crucial. Both of the Tags he buffs - God Ki and Future -- got some monstrous additions with SP SSB Vegito BLU, SP Fusion Zamasu PUR, and SP SSJ Rag Trunks YEL.

Since he’s still the primary Red on both of these Teams, he gets a well deserved bump up to S Tier.

HP 1443116

Why this Tier?

  • His Super Saiyan 3 Transformation has finally made him exceptional in PVP

  • His Transformation lasts for 45 timer counts which is plenty of time, but he’s very mediocre when it runs out.

Discussion:

Shallot is a Melee powerhouse when transformed, and comes along with Cover to give his Team some Defensive viability as well. His Transforming stats are among some of the best of any Fighter in the game, so he’s very versatile. His Z-Ability is also crucial. The free to play Zenkai 7 SP Youth Goku YEL addition has made Shallot’s primary Team a real force, and he’s a vital part of it.

Tier 1

What Makes a Fighter 'Tier 1'?

 Fighters that make up for their minuscule or moderately noticeable flaws by being good choices in solid Teams, they still have very strong above average toolkits but are not extremely over the top powerful. They can still be the go-to Fighters to form a consistently strong Team around.

  • He might’ve just gotten replaced by an EX-Rarity Fighter.

Discussion

SP SSJ Gotenks RED has amazing well rounded Damage potential, Combo potential, and a means to defend himself via his Cover and Ki Reduction. Outside of his timed Transformation, he does well in most aspects.

However, the best theoretical Team is always taken into account for the Tier List, and while he might be hard to get, EX Gogeta RED is superior to him on the core.

  • While he doesn’t have Damage reduction in his toolkit, he does have many ways to sustain himself via Healing.

Discussion

His “You let your guard down” Unique Ability is what makes this Fighter outrageously good. If switched out enough, he provides his Teammates and himself a permanent 40% Damage Buff which cannot be cancelled. His “Resolute Fighting Spirit” gives him plenty of Damage Uniques for himself to ensure he’s not simply a pure Support.

Discussion

His only real flaw at the moment is the fact that he’s very Ranged focus whereas a lot of Regeneration Fighters prefer Strike Attack, but he still does everything else. From Defense, Offense, Utility to Support, he solidifies himself as the main Regeneration Yellow for quite a while.

Discussion:

SP FF Cooler BLU is back and better than ever. His Cold Hearted Family Unique Ability enables his Team to do arguably the most collective Damage a Team can possibly do in the game, and he himself hits like a truck. His Zenkai 1 Awakening also gives Ki on switch out and makes his Extra Move a permanent stacking Strike Attack Buff.

His fragility is a bit of an issue, but his Team has so many Defensive pivots now that it’s very easy to shield him from any punishment. Lineage of Evil Defensive pivots also tend to have huge Offensive firepower potential.

SP SSJ Gohan Youth YEL is a phenomenal Fighter, and his iconic Combo which can take out some Fighters in a single blow if the stars align for him is still quite oppressive, but Sagas From The Movies as a whole has been hurt by the recent updates. They've not had many new releases, and are simply not as effective as other Teams like Future, God Ki, or even Saiyans and GT.

Why this Tier?

  • He’s extremely durable, has one of the best Extra Moves in the game, locks the Enemy in with his first Main Ability, and draws a Special Move Arts Card with enough Ki to use it from his second Main Ability.
     

  • He has many Team options when limit broken to 5 stars.

HP 2469664

Blast ATK 229101

Why this Tier?

  • He’s one of the best Fighters in the game when transformed, but has to wait either 50 timer counts or for an ally to die.
     
  • True to his character, he’s an incredible last man standing Fighter.
     

Discussion

This drop from Z all the way to Tier 1 might come as a surprise but due to changes in the Meta, Bardock having to wait for his Transformation has now become a bit of a detriment. He has quite a few difficult matchups in the Meta, and his Team sometimes cannot afford to wait too long for his Transformation.

Still, once he does Transform, not many can afford to stand in his way. Through high base stats, high Damage uniques, ability to nullify color disadvantage and also restore his Vanish Gauge 100%, he has the capability of ripping through anyone if the stars align for him while also being very hard to catch.

  • He’s an absolute behemoth Defensively, and since he takes so much effort to take down, he gets a lot of usage out of his Unique Ability which increases both his and his allies Damage inflicted when he takes Damage.
     
  • He’s everything Lineage of Evil needed. A Purple that is exceptional late-game will keep them relevant for quite a while.
     

Discussion

SP FF Cooler BLU’s Zenkai 1 Awakening is one of the best things that could’ve happened for SP Cooler PUR. He’s still just as much of a brick wall Defensively as before, but now his early Damage problems are alleviated once again. Alternatively, he draws Extra Moves for SP FF Cooler BLU, who’s Extra Move is now a permanent Damage stacking Buff.

SP Cooler PUR is still everything Lineage of Evil could want. Defense, Support, and now even more Damage thrown in makes him very hard to take out.

  • He’s incredibly hard to take down as his Cover reduces Damage taken by 50% and. reduces Enemy Ki by 35%.
     

  • His Special Move spam enables him to do a ton of Damage despite his low base Attack stats.

Discussion:

SP FF Cooler BLU's Zenkai Awakening makes him devastating with his Special Move, and gives him a very nice Defensive pivot to shield him from any punishment.

Alternatively, Frieza Force got an amazing addition with SP Broly: Cheelai BLU, and SP FP FF Frieza YEL is essential for that Team as their primary brick-wall of a Tank. With him as a safe Defensive pivot, it enables SP Broly: Cheelai BLU to switch in and stack their Unique Ability, which gives Damage inflicted the more they are swapped in and out.

SP FF Frieza RED, SP Golden Frieza GRN, SP Goku Ginyu RED, and SP 1F Frieza PUR are all solid Fighters that Buff the Tag as well.

  • This in turn does make him a bit situational, but he’s still an excellent primary Red for his Team

Discussion:

SP FP Frieza RED makes PVP matches against Saiyans significantly easier, and with a 50% Strike Buff on entry, can remain relevant even against non-Saiyan Teams. His Transformation does come with a timer, but 45 timer counts is decently long. He has some especially good appeal with SP Youth Goku YEL running around at Zenkai 7. SP FF Cooler BLU at Zenkai 1 accentuates his Damage potential that much more.

Discussion

Their “Cheelai’s Support” Unique Ability gives Broly an incredibly high Damage ceiling, and due to his Tags has slotted into one of the games best Teams in Sagas From The Movies. He also Buffs Frieza Force. While his own Special Move is pretty subpar, he still works exceptionally well with SP 1F Frieza PUR.

Alternatively, SP Cooler PUR draws SP FF Cooler BLU some extra Moves, which give him a permanent stacking Buff at Zenkai 1.

The release of SP Broly: Cheelai BLU gives him a bit of an unconventional pairing, but they do both Buff the Frieza Force Tag and are both highly effective, powerful Fighters with some synergy between them. What he lacks in Damage can be made up for by SP Broly: Cheelai BLU, who has amazing Damage potential. Other solid Frieza Force Fighters include: SP FF Frieza RED, SP Golden Frieza GRN, SP Goku Ginyu RED, and SP FP FF Frieza YEL

Discussion

SP Boujack PUR does everything. His Damage output and high and very consistent, his Cover provides his Team with a way to protect themselves, and he gives allied Sagas From the Movies Fighters a 25% Damage inflicted Buff when switched. He also takes 20% reduced Damage from Super Saiyans. His Cover does come with a drawback as his Teammate being switched out will take 15% of their Health as Damage, but this Cover is so effective and he himself is so well rounded that it more than makes up for it.

It seems like he gets a bit worse every update, as not only does F2P SP Youth Goku YEL provide a bad matchup for him, but SP SSB Vegito BLU can also ignore his Cover.

Akin to the anime, SP UGA Super Buu GRN has a bit of a chaotic toolkit but the payoff can be tremendous. At full stacks, he’s an Offensive force with a great means to defend himself with his Extra Move Barrier.

Regeneration always seems to take a seat behind another Team every Anniversary, and it just happened to poor SP UGA Super Buu GRN again. Future and God Ki are simply better options to use at this point, and SP Good Buu GRN was always the preferable Green for Regeneration anyway.

Discussion:

Everyone expected SP SSB Goku BLU to move up accordingly when God Ki got some more support, but he was  even better than advertised. Unfortunately, he should be used only if the Player is missing SP SSB Vegito BLU. He’s secondary on God Ki now.

Most importantly, God Ki skyrocketed in value after the release of  SP Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black RED and SP SSG Vegeta GRN, the latter of which he can trap and absolutely annihilate in just one Combo potentially.

SP Android #18 RED should really be categorized as a Support Fighter, not a Defense Fighter. Her low Health makes it hard for her to reliably Tank, and her most effective trait is his Precise Assist Main Ability, which helps Teammates significantly.

She synergizes very well with the new SP Android #21 PUR and SP Android #21 BLU and works both on a Female Warrior or Android-centric Team.

SP Goku GRN’s lack of reduced cost for Blast Arts Cards as a Ranged Fighter, and the fact that he can struggle to do Damage early in the game holds him back a bit. He’s also exceptionally vulnerable to any Fighter in the game that can remove Attribute Upgrades.

Still, he’s outrageously durable, and gets increasingly scary the longer the game goes on. His Ultimate Move has the potential to kill some Fighters in one blow

It’s uncertain why yet another Blue Transforming Saiyan was released, but SP SSJ Vegeta BLU simply has a hard time finding a home as a result.

  • He’s a good Defensive Fighter.
     
     

  • While his base Attack stats are quite low, he has quite a few Unique Abilities that make his Damage good.
     
     

Discussion:

SP Goku Black PUR is an excellent representation of the Goku Black in the anime, as he’s hard to take out and gets progressively stronger the more Damage he takes. Most notably, he receives a 50% Damage Inflicted Buff every time he takes Damage.

Future got a big uptick in viability with the addition of SP Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black RED, and SP Goku Black PUR now performs much better. His anti-Saiyan Unique Ability is quite enticing. Still, the Tag is in desperate need of a Blue Fighter.

  • He’s been power crept to death, but recently received a Zenkai Awakening.
     

Discussion:

Future got a huge boost in viability with the release of SP Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black RED, but unless he's at Zenkai level 1, SP Goku Black YEL has no spot on the Team for a multitude of reasons. He can’t utilize SP Super Saiyan Rose Goku Black RED’s held Strike Arts Cards effectively and he’s also notably worse than SP Perfect Cell YEL and SP SSJ Gohan YEL

That being said, at Zenkai level 1 he's a lot more viable, but a bit of a "win-more" Fighter, which can be situational.

  • SP Hero Tapion RED brings a lot of useful abilities to the field, but still remains a secondary option to the main Core for Sagas Warriors

  • He does, however, fill the Red void for Sagas Warriors, making the Team more flexible altogether. 

Discussion:

SP Hero Tapion RED offers a similar switch Support like other members of Sagas Warriors, and his Crisis Ability can be the difference in the final moments. SP Hero Tapion RED's flaw is he is flanked by stellar Teammate options, namely SP Super Saiyan Youth Gohan YEL, SP Full Power Boujack PUR, and SP Vegeta BLU, which is a hard trio to break up.

  • His awkward placement on his secondary Tag leaves SP Bardock YEL with a single focus on his preferred Team.

Discussion:

Bardock variants have become notorious for prophesying a major Meta shift, and this one is no different. While SP Bardock YEL may be overshadowed by the latest Update, his Defensive and Support Abilities are welcome on the field, while he is on the field. His Z-Ability leaves much to be desired, but his presence brings out the best in his Saiyan Allies.

SP Android #13 BLU is a bit of a one dimensional Fighter as he’s almost entirely Blast oriented, but he becomes truly terrifying when his Teammates are killed. He also has a Unique Ability that inflicts more Damage to Goku variants, which will always be relevant and is especially useful considering how popular he is.

    SP Android #17 PUR controls the Combat Loop very effectively with his well-rounded toolkit. He’ll save his Teammates, cripple the Enemy Team and dish out destructive amounts of Damage while they’re vulnerable all at the same time. Awakened This Should Be Fun! coming into the game makes him that much harder to play against as well.

  • He’s actually quite fragile despite being able to Transform, unlike other Transforming Fighters.

Discussion: 

SP Gohan GRN is a great Offensive Fighter whether it’s through his innate extra Damage to Androids, his multiple Blast Attack Buffs, and his Main Ability nullifying unfavorable Element factors for 30 timer counts. However, for a Transforming Fighter, he isn’t very durable.

What makes a Fighter 'Tier 3'?

Generally older Fighters, they might still have respectable toolkits or niche Abilities, but their stats are too old to consistently compete, and they have been replaced in their best possible Teams many times over.

Explanation

HP 2429007

  • He’s a brick wall of a Tank for the first 30 timer counts. After 30 timer counts, his stats still remain Defensive but his playstyle will shift to an Offensive one.

  • His Main Ability prevents switching for 10 timer counts, allowing him to control the Combat Loop very effectively.

Discussion:

SP Vegito RED is pretty straightforward, he takes a few moments to warm up and then begins his Offensive assault. Despite the 30% Damage inflicted Buff he receives after 30 timer counts, his base attack stats aren’t great so he can struggle to do Damage at times.

At this point, he’s a tertiary choice for Fusion Warrior behind SP SSJ Gotenks RED and EX Gogeta RED.

Discussion:

SP Goku RED is a pretty straightforward Fighter, he possesses a 40% Damage inflicted Buff when entering the battlefield, his Extra Move can increase Card Draw speed, and every Strike and Blast he uses improves his Ultimate Move Damage.


That being said, the primary Son Family Team is still centered around Blast, and he’s competing with SP SSJ2 Gohan RED. He’ll likely go up in value when Son Family inevitably gets more Strike oriented Fighters.

  • His Blast Attack and Ki Restore Speed are awful.
     

Discussion:

SP Kid Buu RED helped Regeneration come back to prominence, but was always a considerably flawed Fighter. His Damage was never consistent, he draws Extra Moves which has always been a clunky mechanic, and he’s just now been outright replaced by both  SP Super Janemba RED and SP Omega Shenron RED

  • When her Teammates start dying--specifically Female Warriors--her Strike Damage becomes terrifying.

Discussion:

SP Ribrianne BLU always had one of the best toolkits in the game, but her viability hinges on how good Female Warriors are. Once again, it seems like Female Warriors are starting to be neglected, so SP Ribrianne BLU hasn’t been seen much.

Discussion

SP Kakunsa PUR is similar to SP Golden Frieza GRN in the sense that she’s very early-game oriented, but she also manages to stay relevant the entire game regardless, even in death as she permanently Buffs and Heals Teammates when killed.

Similar to SP Ribrianne BLU, she has access to one of the most powerful Extra Moves in the game - Lovely Pose. This Extra Move Debuffs the entire opposing Team while simultaneously Buffing her own allies.

Discussion

SP Rozie YEL preferring to use Blast Arts Cards shouldn’t be too big of a problem due to her Main Ability which  changes her own Strike Arts Cards to Blast Arts Cards. She also draws a Special Move Arts Card, enough Ki to use it, and it can inflict Faint to make matters worse.

Another nifty part of her toolkit is the fact that she Heals her Teammates when she kills an Enemy. Similar to SP Kakunsa PUR, she also Heals and permanently Buffs her Teammates when killed herself.

  • His “Immortal Body” Unique Ability makes him very durable and puts a ton of pressure on Enemies who intend to use Rising Rush, as he restores his own Health by 20% when it reaches 0.

Discussion:

SP Zamasu RED was a revolutionary Fighter on release, as he was incredibly hard to take out and could dish out some punishment himself as well.

Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on who's asked, he’s free falling due to constant releases of new powerful Fighters that are either Blue, anti-Regeneration, or nullify Endurance. Power creep has not done him any favors either.

SP Angry Goku BLU especially makes work of SP Zamasu RED instantaneously, making him a flat out liability considering how popular he will be.

True to the nature of most Gohan variants, SP SSJ Teen Gohan BLU is incredibly resilient and doesn’t go down without a fight. His Cover only gets stronger if someone on his Team is defeated, and he trades his Cover Ability in for Damage inflicted when he’s the last one alive.

The release of Strike-oriented SP SSJ Gohan Youth YEL was a great boon to him, as he was always a phenomenal Fighter, just one with a Strike based toolkit which was not what Son Family Teams were typically structured around.

His Buffs to allied Super Saiyans can enable them to do sickening amounts of Damage, but he himself can be a burden in most games specifically due to his Defenses.

It’s at the point now where SP SSJ Bardock BLU doesn’t need to be used on the core of a Super Saiyan Team, so he falls to Tier 2.

SP Metal Cooler (Red)
Explanation

Stats

HP 2449177
Strike ATK 214855
Blast ATK 218787
Strike DEF 151804

Why this tier?

  • He’s not a conventional Tank, his Defensive capabilities mostly lie with his Ability to increase Card costs as well as restoring 5% of his Health when he enters the battlefield.

  • His stats--namely his Offensive stats--are very lackluster.

Discussion:

SP Metal Cooler RED has had quite the redemption arc. He was underwhelming on release, but had found his place in the Meta as the primary Lineage of Evil Red. While SP FF Frieza RED has overtaken him there, he’s still a nifty choice to use in Sagas From the Movies with the new SP Goku GRN

He still struggles heavily to do Damage, but is useful Defensively and provides a Team Heal

Why this Tier?

  • He provides the Team with massive and permanent Buffs upon his death.

  • He also brings some much needed Strike Arts Cards to the Future Tag.

Discussion:

His Special Move increases Enemy Strike Damage received by 25%, his Extra Move removes Debuffs in addition to self-healing when Teamed with Trunks variants, and his drawable Ultimate Move removes Enemy Attribute Upgrades. All of this makes him extremely flexible in Combat.

The addition of SP Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black RED has given him a bit more viability, but he's still a bit power crept.

Discussion:

SP Kami Piccolo YEL is a decent, but very flawed Fighter. His Color ensures he’ll likely never see core play, his extremely low base Health ensures he’ll not be relied on to take any Damage, and his Team-wide Buff when killed doesn't last for the rest of the Match.

  • His “Weapon of Extermination” Unique Ability provides him with a significant Damage Boost every time he enters the battlefield and as well as a nice insurance policy against SP Zamasu RED.

  • His Main Ability draws a Strike Arts Card and increases his Damage inflicted, which is a ridiculously powerful tempo-play.

Discussion:

SP Rilldo RED has a phenomenal toolkit, allowing him to drill his opponents into the ground with a variety of Strike Damage Buffs. What keeps him from being even higher is a lack of Tags, which limit his Team options significantly.

  • Ranged Fighters have always been a step behind Melee Fighters due to how hard it can be to use Blast Arts Cards effectively, but SP SSJ Kid Goku GRN makes utilizing his Ranged toolkit a breeze.

  • He gains Damage Buffs for every Blast Arts Card drawn. Coupled with his Main Ability which increases Card draw speed, this allows him to do significant amounts of Damage.

Discussion:

He's been power crept and replaced in his primary Team multiple times over, but his Z-Ability is still useful.

Why this Tier?

  • While his stats are only a bit above average, he provides insane amounts of Debuffs for Enemy Fighters as well as gradually increasing his own Damage depending on what kind of Attack he decides to use.

  • His Intimidate permanently increases all Enemy Strike Arts Card cost by 3 every time he’s switched into Combat. This is stackable and can only be removed with Abilities that remove Attribute Downgrades--such as SP Zamasu RED's Main Ability or SP SSJ Gohan YEL’s Extra Move.

  • Similar to SP SSJ Gohan YEL, he’s excellent whether alive or dead.

  • His Main Ability can give him a surprising amount of Damage if paired with Son Family Fighters.

Discussion:

While he’s useful dead, he certainly serves a purpose when alive as well. Ki Restore 5 timer counts after entry, an Extra Move that shortens Teammates substitution count as well as a Special Move Arts Card that reduces Ki by 50 means he can control the combat-loop very well.

  • SP SSJ Broly PUR heals after Transformation, offsetting any early mistakes and gaining a massive stat Boost.

  • He nullifies color disadvantage for 10 timer counts when he enters the battlefield 4 times total - twice before and after Transformation.

Discussion:

SP SSJ Broly PUR was an iconic Fighter and had his time at the top for many months. The fact that he's been replaced in Sagas 3 times over, power creep, the nerf to Blast Armor and his lack of Damage Unique Abilities relative to other newer Fighters have caused him to fall to Tier 4.

  • His “I Can’t Let A Power Greater than Mine Exist…” Unique Ability Debuffs all Enemies after 25 timer counts have elapsed. These Attribute Downgrades compromise the opposing Team significantly.
     

  • He suffers from a lack of reliable Damage Unique Abilities and is fragile.

Discussion:

For such an iconic character, SP Super Buu PUR never lived up to the hype at all. His inconsistent Damage and fragility has made him hard to justify in a Match. He's only good for his Z-Ability now.

Why this Tier?

  • His dragon ball theft and Paralysis are really powerful and definitely give him a place on most Regeneration Teams, but the low odds of these effects actually being activated hurt him tactically.

  • He has tons of potent and flexible Strike Damage Buffs, but his base Strike Attack stat is pretty average.

Discussion:

SP Lord Slug BLU is an OK addition to the Regeneration Team and has a lot of Synergy with them if many other core Fighters are missing. However, his Blast Attack is low enough to put him at a disadvantage when forced to use those Attacks and his low average Defenses combined with his Health-related Damage Buffs make it a risky move to let him dip that low. 

At this point, he's simply only useful for his Z-Ability.

  • He’s incredibly fragile, one dimensional, and takes too long to ramp up.

Discussion:

For a Fighter that toyed with Super Buu in the anime, SP Ultimate Gohan GRN didn’t live up to the hype. His clunkiness, offputting Z-Ability, fragility, and one-dimensional Offensive output was a death sentence from his release, and he’s now being power crept to boot.

To make matters worse, he’s been flat out replaced by SP Gohan GRN in any Team he works best in.

Discussion

The release of SP Super #17 GRN gives a lot more appeal, as he can seemingly spam Extra Moves. The first of which Debuffs the opposing Fighters Blast Defense, followed by the second Extra Move used giving his Teammates 25% Blast Damage permanently.

From that point on, his Extra Move will continuously increase Enemy Blast Arts cost by 3, which can flat out cripple them.

SP SSJ Vegeta RED is as pure of a Melee Fighter as it gets. He reduces his Strike Arts Card cost and has multiple Unique Abilities that give him tons of Strike Damage. He’s also the first Fighter in the game to Boost Vegeta Family with his Z-Ability.

That being said, he’s very one dimensional in his Attack, has quite low Health, and SP SSJ4 Vegeta RED just kicked him out of the core of the only Team he works in.

    Discussion

    SP Bulma GRN on the surface might seem like a good Support, but is a considerably flawed Fighter. It’s true that Support Fighters tend to not have great stats, but even then she still manages to fall short.


    SP Mai GRN brings superior and much more consistent Support -- specifically her Ki restoration -- and has an infinitely better Health Z-Ability to boot, and as such should be used over her in the core or bench. Either way, neither one of them can take a hit at this point, and should be used with caution.

    • SP Bardock GRN’s Main Ability cages in the Enemy, preventing that Fighter from getting swapped out.
       

    • He has some pretty potent Damage Buffs, but those aren’t helping much in the face of power creep anymore.
       

    Discussion:

    He’s still rocking some of the highest HP in the game, but he doesn’t do much of anything at this point. Saiyans have much more potent bench buffs, so he’s not recommended there anymore either.

    • He also has reduced Blast and Strike Card Costs and a faster draw speed every time he enters the field, and his Main Ability makes him similar to SP Super Gogeta RED and SP SSJ Berserk Kale RED However, SP SSJ3 Goku RED only has stacking Damage Buffs for 30 timer counts.

    • He has an excellent Z-Ability that Buffs Strike and Blast Attack at all star levels.

    Discussion:

    SP SSJ3 Goku RED’s toolkit is like the worst combination of SP SSJ3 Goku PUR and SP SSJ Goku YEL. He’s a glass cannon with some fairly powerful Damage Buffs, but his Ki Recovery Speed is terrible for a Ranged Fighter. Even though it’s increased by 30% for the first 45 timer counts, once that wears off his Ki Recovery Speed is halved for 15 timer counts. This makes him nearly unusable when there are so many better Red Saiyan options out there.

    Discussion:

    His old statssituational toolkit, awful Z-Ability, and the fact that he’s been completely replaced in any viable Team by EX Chilled YEL, SP FF FP Frieza YEL and EX Burter YEL have caused SP FF Frieza YEL’s viability to fall off the face of the Earth.

    Discussion:

    His base stats aren’t impressive and he requires his Teammates to start dying before he packs a punch himself. Even his Z-Ability is outmatched by other Purple Fighters who can Buff multiple stats, where he only Buffs Strike Attack.
