ZENKAI, 1% UNITS, AND LEGENDS LIMITED UNIT EXPLANATION

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • 1% banner units = ~7 stars
  • .25% Legends Limited units = ~3 stars

Tier Z

What makes a Fighter ‘Z Tier’?

The absolute best Fighters in the game. Zenkais have really changed how the landscape of the game work. Fighters in this Tier not only own an Ability that exerts control over core game systems as well as multiple Teams that work with them, but very high base stats that make them incredibly difficult to deal with on many sides of the field, at any point of the Match.

SP Super Saiyan 2 Youth Gohan (Red)
Explanation

Stats

HP 2847058
Strike ATK 266231
Blast ATK 301574
Strike DEF 192054
Blast DEF 190156

Why this Tier?

  • He's the second LF unit to get a Zenkai boost, and it's made him the best all-around unit in the game. He brings damage, support, defense, and more or less completely invalidates Regeneration when matched up against them.
     
  • His Zenkai alone has completely revamped the tier list, and shifted the entire meta.

Discussion:

Historically, SP SSJ2 Gohan RED took a bit of time or a dead ally to really get going, but with his Zenkai 7 boost, he can take many fighters out even at the very onset of the match. His Zenkai boost has bolstered basically everything he did exceptionally well in his prime, fixed his problems early on the match and even threw in some support qualities for good measure. Even blue units are not safe from SP SSJ2 Gohan RED.

Explanation

Stats

HP 2733962
Strike ATK 290672
Blast ATK 278412
Strike DEF 179856
Blast DEF 173365

Why this Tier?

  • His Zenkai 7 boost has made him one of the hardest hitters in the entire game, and fixed his lack of durability.
  • Son Family and Saiyan are now some of the better teams in the game thanks to him.

Discussion:

SP SSJ3 Goku PUR was long overdue for a Zenkai boost, and now that it's finally come he's become the diabolical offensive fighter he was in his prime. He and SP SSJ2 Gohan RED have invalidated Regeneration, but these 2 paired together on Son Family can destroy anyone. It’s not just limited to Regeneration. From himself being oppressive to his teams being incredibly powerful, he’s earned the Z Tier spot.

HP 2669782

Strike DEF 171396
Blast DEF 179590

Why this Tier?

  • Her Zenkai 7 buff has made her oppressive Offensively.

  • SP Android #18 YEL brings two Blast Arts Cards as a Strike heavy Offense Fighter, but her Extra Move can switch her Blast Arts Cards to Strike Arts Cards.

Discussion:

Her Zenkai 7 update continues the trend of super-charging ancient units with a wide array of Damage buffs. While her Z-Ability still hasn't changed and can't benefit a lot of Android Fighters other than Android #21 variants, it doesn't even hurt the team too much. Her Damage is just way too much to handle. Female Warriors are starting to creep back to relevancy as well thanks to her.

SP Super Gogeta (Red)
Explanation

Stats

HP 2849548
Strike ATK 292724
Blast ATK 274277
Strike DEF 180557
Blast DEF 183602

Why this Tier?

  • He’s been Zenkai boosted.
  • He’s become a hellacious Offensive force with some decent survivability as well.

Discussion:

Super Gogeta has almost everything a unit would want Offensively. When he comes in, he restores Ki, has a 50% Damage buff, and maybe most importantly: increases his Arts Card draw speed. He does have a bit of “scaling” up to do in the sense that he needs to use Strike or Blast arts cards to get some additional Damage inflicted Buffs, but even before then he’s still phenomenal off the bat.

His Extra Move was among one of the most difficult to use with little incentive to actually use it. After his Zenkai, if he’s able to land his Extra Move he gets a huge Damage inflicted Buff, clears Enemy Attribute Upgrades, and is now finally able to combo off of it.


He and SP SSJ Bardock BLU are finally reunited, and form a deadly duo capable of tearing through anyone, even their respective color disadvantages if the stars align for them.

Explanation

Stats

HP 2781378
Strike ATK 284130
Blast ATK 256319
Strike DEF 182659
Blast DEF 184856

Why this Tier?

  • He's received a Zenkai boost, bolstering his stats and giving him some extra solid unique abilities.

  • He's still the engine behind devastating Super Saiyan based teams.

Discussion:

He was pretty significantly held back by his team when his Zenkai first dropped, but now he and SP Super Gogeta RED are back together, and able to rip through most units in the game. He honestly had an argument for S Tier even before Super Gogeta’s Zenkai, as he was a vital part of the Blue-Blue-Purple Team alongside SP SSJ3 Goku PUR and SP Angry Goku BLU. He also had an argument to go from S to Z tier for quite a while, and there seems to be not denying him there either.

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. For the most part, these Fighters are consistently brought into PVP matches on S or Z Tier Teams.

SP Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku (Blue)
Explanation

Stats

HP 2766306
Strike ATK 266478
Blast ATK 281892
Strike DEF 188314
Blast DEF 181795

Why this Tier?

  • His Zenkai Boost has made him similar to his prime -- durable to start the match and devastating to end the match.

     
     
  • He makes a legitimate case for God Ki over SP SSB Vegito BLU.

Discussion:

He operates pretty similar to his release. Granted the landscape of the game is much different, but he's still exceptionally well rounded. He's extremely resilient, hard to catch with his Main Ability recovering his entire Vanish Gauge, his Ultimate Move is devastating, and he's great late game as well.

Explanation

Stats

HP 2203690
Strike ATK 208260
Blast ATK 235084
Strike DEF 141826
Blast DEF 143008

Why this Tier?

  • His iconic Special Move - Angry Kamehameha - can inflict some serious, game-changing Damage.

  • He Buffs the Super Saiyan Tag at 3 stars, making him extremely powerful on the bench of many Teams on top of his excellent core viability.

Discussion:

SP Angry Goku BLU received a Zenkai 7 Boost, and while he's not FSK Gohan levels good, he's still among the best units in the game. There still seems to be a schism between him and the 3 units in Z Tier when it comes to consistent overall damage, which is why he lands at the top of S Tier


SP SSJ3 Goku PUR, for example, has more consistent damage throughout the entire match whereas SP Angry Goku BLU is slightly slow to start, and really picks up most of his steam when he’s completely last-man standing. By comparison, SP SSJ3 Goku PUR is devastating at any point in the game, and serves as the best offensive pivot in the entire game as well.

SP Perfect Form Cell (Revived) (Red)
Explanation

Stats

HP 1719581
Strike ATK 198728
Blast ATK 196762
Strike DEF 75994
Blast DEF 76742

Why this Tier?

  • His base form is beyond fragile, so while he’s good Rising Rush bait, he’s a bit underwhelming until that point.
  • His transformation after reviving makes him incredibly powerful, and the recent battle changes have made him insufferable to play against due to his sub count reduction/revive mechanic.

Discussion

In the average game, Cell might not seem too effective as the average player might not use him optimally, getting him killed way too early. With the right team around him and a player skilled enough to control the combat loop, his presence alone can be very oppressive.

In base form, he can’t take a hit, but offensively he’s actually pretty serviceable. After transforming, he outputs ridiculous damage. He slots into Regeneration, Future and Android as their primary red.

Why this Tier?

  • His Zenkai Boost kicks SP SSGSS Gogeta YEL off the core of God Ki and Sagas.
  • He’s an extremely hard hitting Melee Fighter but serves as a defensive pivot as well.

Discussion

SP SSG Vegeta YEL on release always had a decent toolkit, his real big problem was his very low base stats. His Zenkai boost rectifies that and then some, giving him access to some pulverizing Strike Attack and some nice base Health and Defenses, allowing him to come in as a very reliable Defensive pivot.


He works marvelously with SP Vados GRN due to her healing, seeing as Vegeta works best when he pops into the battlefield with a higher Health ratio than his opponent.

Why this Tier?

  • He’s Defense, Support, and a bit of Damage all rolled into one.
  • He, like SP Jiren GRN, has a few team issues.

Discussion

Both Rival Universe and especially Pride Troopers have some team issues when it comes to a complete color wheel, but SP Toppo BLU still performs marvelously. On top of the aforementioned qualities, his Ultimate Move also possesses a lock-in, subsequently being able to trap and take out a crucial enemy unit.

Explanation

Stats

HP 2504208

Blast ATK 246853
Strike DEF 159257
Blast DEF 160856

Why this Tier?

  • SP Goku Black GRN can transform into Super Saiyan Rose, amplifying his Damage and bolstering his stats altogether, making him very hard to deal with on both sides of the field.
  • He’s preferable on the Future core over SP SSGSS Vegeta GRN

Discussion

A lot of his toolkit revolves around his “The Pain Etched in Me” Unique Ability, which restores 10 Ki and gives him 10% damage inflicted when he draws a card. His Extra Move might not seem like much at face value due to it simply “destroying cards and redrawing them”, but due to the aforementioned Unique Ability, it’s currently one of the more effective Extra Moves in the game.

True to the nature of most Transforming units, his base stats are also incredible. This paired with his amazing Unique Abilities makes SP Goku Black GRN a mainstay on Future and a consistent core unit. He's naturally a very hard hitter, but has tons of survivability in his toolkit as well.

  • At Zenkai Level 7, he Heals for a tremendous amount from his Main Ability and Soft Body Unique Ability, and is generally incredibly hard to take down.

  • His lock-in can potentially be game-changing, especially with the constant cover changing now due to the battle changes.

Discussion

His recent Zenkai Awakening makes him as durable as ever, but Regeneration is still at the mercy of SP SSJ3 Goku PUR and SP SSJ2 Gohan RED. Despite the fact that Son Family is a hard matchup, there are a plethora of powerful Blue fighters running around, and Z7 Good Buu does an excellent job locking them and alleviating a ton of Damage.

Why this Tier?

  • His Countdown to Despair Main Ability can swing the tides of a Match by stealing dragon balls from the Enemy and giving them to the Player.

  • His Zenkai 7 makes him among the hardest hitters in the entire game.

Discussion:

He's superior to SP Piccolo YEL on the Regeneration core. He’s strike based, still does great damage, and his Dragon Ball manipulation helps take advantage of one of the more powerful mechanics in the game in Rising Rushes. He’s taken a bit of a fall recently just because SP SSJ2 Gohan RED has gotten more and more effective. SP Piccolo YEL's Zenkai Boost also gives DKP a lot more incentive due to the massive bench buff he receives.

Explanation

HP 2527890

Strike DEF 165082
Blast DEF 161529

Why this Tier?

  • He’s an absolutely devastating Offensive force that punishes the opponent for just about everything.
  • He’s a bit too fragile, and while he pairs nicely with SP SSJ Bardock BLU, SP Angry Goku BLU is still superior on the core of the SSJ Team.

Discussion

He’s being considered at 3 stars on the Tier List. At 6 stars, SP FPSSJ Broly BLU would be approximately 4th or 5th overall in S Tier.
 

Don’t be discouraged by Broly being “low” S, he just has the unfortunate reality of being behind several transforming units and Zenkai units with astronomically high base stats. At 3 stars, he’s still right up there with the best, and is the clear cut starter on Sagas.

Broly is a diabolical feast or famine kind of Fighter, and games with him can get out of hand very quickly. He has a seemingly endless amount of card draw speed, Blast Armor on everything which is beneficial for keeping him in even when he has no Vanish Gauge, and a devastating Ultimate Move that actually forces switch out if it doesn't kill the enemy, tying into his other Uniques quite nicely.

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. These Fighters are a lot more matchup dependent than the Fighters in S Tier, so sometimes they might not see consistent play due to a decent amount of bad matchups.

They are usually part of S or Z Tier teams, so even if a Fighter is a core option on a certain team, if they are not overall good in the Meta they can see a drop to Tier 2. Tier 1 is not a participation medal for being part of a good team, either. If they can't carry their weight, they can still be dropped.

  • Unexpectedly, his standalone toolkit is arguably the very best of the units released in this update.
  • His Extra Move is ridiculously powerful, as it takes away a Dragon Ball and adds it to his own count, and inflicts Paralysis

Discussion

Frieza and SP FPSSJ Broly BLU are actually pretty close in terms of effectiveness standalone toolkit wise, and regardless of who you value more, neither answer is incorrect. Broly is the devastating glass cannon, whereas Frieza has game-changing utility and is a bit more self-sufficient than Broly.

Frieza can not only dish out great Damage, but indirectly helps his Team via Debuffs and Dragon Ball manipulation. Even if he starts off a PVP Match in a rough spot, his Ultimate Move heals him for a whopping 40% of his Health. His problem is a common one among Lineage of Evil Fighters - their Team is commonly neglected.

Discussion

SP Vados GRN has a wealth of team choices at her disposal, even giving some slight incentive to Green Color Counter teams due to a lot of units who share these colors having a lot of synergy with her.

Her fragility can be a big problem, as her “Brisk Council” requires her to be switched in and out quite often. One mistake can be the end of her or put her teammates at serious risk. All that being said, she has a plethora of other uniques that more than make up for it. There’s a seemingly never-ending debate between her and Beerus on the God Ki core. It looks like she just took the lead due to how well she works with SP SSG Vegeta YEL

Explanation

Stats

HP 2322904
Strike ATK 268134
Blast ATK 261015
Strike DEF 151559
Blast DEF 148891

Why this Tier?

  • Easy to play, but exceptionally hard to master.
  • His auto evade is game-changing in more ways than one, but he’s still susceptible to being hit, and hit VERY hard.

Discussion

He's considered 3 stars for the Tier List. At 6 stars, UI Goku would be mid S Tier.

If played perfectly, SP Ul Goku PUR is arguably the most difficult unit to play against in the game. However, he does have a ridiculously high skill cap. Despite his auto evade being beneficial for stalling, he can still be hit, and therein lies his biggest weakness by far: fragility. It’s not out of the realm of possibility for Goku to die in a single combo, even at neutral. His Extra Move has some of the best effects in the game, but is a “long” animation and can be played around, once again leaving him susceptible to heavy damage.


At 3 stars, it’s hard to say he has the edge over Z7 units, someone like SP Goku Black GRN who has a ton of damage and seemingly endless combo potential at times, or someone like SP Angry Goku BLU who is an accomplice on the very best team in the game in Son Family.

  • He has a phenomenal toolkit which synergizes extremely well in this hyper-Offensive Meta.
  • He’s a bit fragile, but due to his incredible death Buffs, even that flaw is not too detrimental.

Discussion:

SP SSGSS Vegeta (Future) PUR starts off the game with huge damage potential for the first 50 timer counts, but that meshes together very well with his permanent death Buffs. He also has some Support qualities in his toolkit that function similarly to SP SSGSS Vegeta GRN.

The recent battle changes have made his death buffs that much more crippling, as Rising Rushes are not as easy to get. Vegeta taking away Dragon Balls at a critical point of the match can seal the other players fate.

Discussion

The release of SP Perfect Form Cell (Revived) RED and Zenkai 7 buff for SP Android #18 YEL gave #16 a lot help Team-wise, but nothing else has really come from him. Androids can still dominate because of how strong these 3 are, but could really use new releases to fill out their color wheel.

Alternatively, Rival Universe gives him more flexibility, but is still a work in progress. SP Champa YEL gives them a Yellow unlike Pride Troopers, but his dual Blasts have disharmony with what Jiren would like to utilize and vice-versa.

Discussion

It’s unclear why Piccolo was given the Zenkai with much older units around in dire need of one instead, but for what it’s worth it has made him a pretty solid unit once again. The problem is, Regeneration didn’t need a Yellow with DKP around, and it’s incredibly hard to justify a Yellow Color Counter Team at the moment with SP Super Baby 2 BLU having aged significantly and SP Buutenks BLU being mediocre even on release.

A Yellow Yellow Green setup with SP Good Buu GRN is an unconventional alternative, but they are annihilated by SP SSJ2 Gohan RED. There will be some Teams the player comes across where two Yellows will be optimal, but once again, DKP is the core choice otherwise.

These units being bolstered significantly toolkit and stats wise has also made all 3 of them very durable. It's crucial to note that LF units have always been considered ~3 stars for the Tier list.

Alternatively, the recent battle changes made Rising Rush farming significantly harder, Good Buu is finally available to Zenkai 7 boost, and SP SSB Goku BLU is a legitimate alternative to him on God Ki.

He’s being considered 3 stars on the Tier List. At 6 stars, SP SSGSS Gogeta YEL would be top of Tier 1.

At 3 stars, he really struggles against some of the better Teams in the game which are filled with Zenkai units with massive base stats. He can’t take a hit, and it takes him a few Combos to really get going. No card draw speed also really hurts a unit like this, who relies on using cards as much/quickly as possible whether it’s via stacking his Unique or eliminating an opposing unit after landing his Extra Move.

His Extra Move can borderline eliminate a lot of opposing units, but one mistake here can be disastrous for him. His Extra Move is too much of a double edged sword, and while it's similar to SP Super Gogeta RED's Extra Move, Super Gogeta can atleast afford to take Damage.

Discussion

He's considered 3 stars on the Tier List. At 6 stars, Majin Vegeta would still around mid Tier 1.

SP LL Vegeta (Majin) BLU is flat out oppressive in terms of damage at times. His Pride-Staked Assault special move does mind boggling damage, which is amplified significantly by his main ability after transforming into Majin Vegeta. 


His Extra Move makes him ridiculously hard to play against as well, as it is an AOE -- similar to SP Omega Shenron RED and SP SSJ Youth Gohan YEL -- but Majin Vegeta draws a random card when he does it too, which can often ensure he can keep his combo going.

He and SP Dyspo RED have arguments over each other on the “Rival Universe” or “Universe Survivor Saga” team, so they can share a spot in Tier 1 for the time being.

    Son Familys core doesn't really need him as consistently as before. His support is still good, but when everyone else on the team already restores huge amounts of Ki on entry, it's a bit redundant. His damage has also started to take a big hit.

    • He's starting to fall off a bit, and Son Family doesn't necessarily need him.
    • He's still very annoying to play against due to his Endurance and his Ki Battery.

    Discussion

    SP Youth Goku YEL is starting to fall a bit behind in the sense that his primary teams are being overshadowed. SP SSJ2 Gohan RED still presents a terrifying matchup for him, but he also pairs amazingly with him, as well as the Zenkai 7 SP SSJ3 Goku PUR.

    Tier 2

    What makes a Fighter 'Tier 2'?

    Where Fighters in Tier 1 are good primary choices, these are secondary choices . Fighters in this Tier have likely been replaced in the core of their best primary Team, but still have a good enough toolkit to see play if the need truly arises.

    SP Vegeta (Red)

    Why this Tier?

    • He’s arguably the best Red for Vegeta Family, and he brings a coveted Health Z-Ability
    • Vegeta Family is falling behind, fragmented in terms of synergy, and he’s pretty fragile.

    Discussion

    He’s a good Fighter with some neat Support, but that’s about it. He was clearly meant to be a serviceable addition to the Team, but ultimately a bench type in the near future. Vegeta Family has no reliable Defensive pivots other than Rage Trunks, who has aged. Alternatively, their Offensive pivots have some disharmony with SP Vegeta RED. Majin Vegeta would prefer a Strike heavy team, whereas this Vegeta works well with as many Blast Arts as possible.

    Why this Tier?

    • He has some of the longest Combo potential in the game, and packs a surprising punch.
    • He has some team issues, and his base stats are actually a bit low, requiring him to be limit broken a significant amount.

    Discussion

    Dyspo has an awesome toolkit, but his teams don’t have a complete color wheel. Most importantly: His defenses are absolutely horrific. While Dyspo can put together extremely long combinations, his presence as any kind of Defensive pivot is non-existent. If the player finds themselves not having priority often, Dyspo is a huge detriment as he can’t take many hits at all.

    • His "Chaining Power" Unique Ability helps his Teammates tremendously when he's switched to standby.

    • His Zenkai boost is a huge boon for him, but he's still not the best Sagas red.

    Discussion:

    He’s still firmly behind SP Super Gogeta RED on the Sagas core. However, his toolkit still provides Sagas a lot of Support. He could be used in Android and Regeneration matchups alongside Super Gogeta due to their lack of a blue.

    Discussion:

    SP Teen Trunks BLU is very well rounded. While he's still primarily a Melee Fighter, his Blast Damage can reach very high levels as well. He's also durable, has some Support in his toolkit and is a last-man standing unit. His synergy with the Future and Vegeta Family Tags is also top notch, and his Zenkai gives Legends Road one more step towards viability.

    • 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. That being said, Rage Trunks works best with more limit breaks, and at the 7 stars he's considered for the Tier List, he's starting to age.

    • His Blast Damage is awful, however he’s lucky enough to be in Strike Focused Teams like Sagas Warriors.

    Discussion:

    Z7 Broly was a good addition to Sagas, but ultimately was replaced quickly by a much angrier variation of himself. Even still, he can still be used if LF Broly has not been acquired, or against Son Family alongside him to try and alleviate FSK Gohan

    • He’s reached the Super Saiyan God form -- a Transformation which never expires -- and is excellent all around.
    • He might have a hard time finding his way into the core in some of the more premier matches, as the God Ki core was already sensational.

    Discussion

    Shallot's Light type can be both a blessing and a curse. While it's great not being weak to any color in particular, at times it might be more beneficial for him to have a color advantage. In the hands of a skilled player that gets the advantage often, that might even be preferable. Either way, he's an excellent God Ki core option. He's incredibly durable, great offensively, and can tailor his Special Move to whatever mold fits his team.

    • 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.

    SP Vegito YEL dropped to Tier 2 before SP SSGSS Gogeta YEL came out and flat out replaced him, but now his spot in Tier 2 is solidified.

    • He’s a hellacious Ranged Fighter but also has many Defensive aspects in his toolkit.
    • SP SSGSS Vegeta PUR gives him an insane amount of competition as the primary Purple for his teams.

    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.

    For the time being, it seems like SP SSGSS Vegeta PUR has solidified himself as the primary Purple. SP Merged Zamasu PUR is a little bit more conditional than Vegeta, and Vegeta also pairs a bit better with SP Goku Black GRN

    Discussion

    He’s basically like EX Whis RED of last year in terms of effectiveness. He gives Fusion Warriors a 10% Damage inflicted Buff (up to 30%) and restores Ki by 20 when switched to standby. He reduces Damage by 70% the first time he’s attacked, which can be deceptively effective if he’s kept on the sideline until the enemy uses a Rising Rush or Ultimate Move. His Extra Move also restores Vanish Gauge by 100% the first time it’s used.

    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.

    EX Whis RED actually had one of the longest runs in Z-Tier for any Fighter, it was just on the EX Tier List. Now that it's been disbanded, he's found his way onto the general tier list.

    Despite his age, he has a lot of appeal right now alongside SP Goku Black GRN. Goku Black very much appreciates the extra Ki Recovery as well as Extra Move Whis brings along.

    Discussion

    His Damage output can actually be a little inconsistent at times, but he’s supplemented very well by his team. His Main Ability provides an extremely dangerous situation if he gains priority, as it increases his Arts Card Draw speed by 2 levels and draws him his brutal Special Move. As an added bonus, he adds a Strike Card to the deck that heals 5% on hit.

    Months ago, SP SSJ Vegeta PUR would’ve been a solid all around unit -- and he still is to an extent -- but the fact of the matter is in a Meta that’s extremely top heavy with Zenkai units with monstrous base stats and toolkits, he barely scratches the surface in terms of effectiveness.

    He does a great job replicating Goku from the anime after the revelations he received from Zamasu. His Main Ability puts debilitating Debuffs on the other team, and draws him his patented Extra Move which increases his card draw speed permanently, increases the Damage of his next Strike or Special Move, increases his Ki by 50 and changes all of his pesky Blast Arts cards to Strike Arts cards.

    Unfortunately, SP SSJ2 Gohan RED is the clear cut choice on Son Family, and despite not buffing the Tag, SP Perfect Form Cell (Revived) RED is preferred on Future as well. His Revive mechanic is simply too powerful. As a secondary choice on his best possible teams, he’ll drop to Tier 2, but do take note that this unit is one of the better backups currently in the game.

    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

The Poison affliction doesn't hurt, either. His Main Ability also inflicts the enemy with "No Switching" for 10 timer counts, which can cause serious matchup issues for the opposing team.

    • He has a good Damage output against many popular Tags

    • He works well with SP SSJ Bardock BLU

    Discussion:

    EX SSJ Broly YEL is a destructive anti-Saiyan, anti-Hybrid, anti-Goku Fighter with some Support qualities thrown in for good measure. His Z-Ability is a bit awkward outside of a Yellow Color Counter Team, but he does synergize with SP SSJ Bardock BLU after his Zenkai boost

    SP Gogeta (Blue)
    Explanation

    Stats

    HP 2278327
    Strike ATK 224004
    Blast ATK 235123
    Strike DEF 149322
    Blast DEF 149632

    Why this Tier?

    • He was part of one of the better Teams in the game, but was replaced by SP SSB Vegito BLU
        
    • He still has excellent base stats after Transforming, with an emphasis on a very powerful Special Move.
        

    Discussion:

    SP Gogeta BLU still has some of the best stats in the game after Transforming into a Super Saiyan, which kept him viable despite his age. Even now he’s still fine to use, but only if the Player does not own SP SSB Vegito BLU. He’s simply a secondary choice now, as hard as it might be to imagine.

    Blast ATK 218742
    Strike DEF 157286
    Blast DEF 158550

    Why this Tier?

    • He has excellent synergy in the Saiyan Team.
    • He's a resilient Fighter and brings a coveted HP Z-Ability to Goku variant

    Discussion:

    F2P Fighters are no longer throwaway gimmick units, SP Kakarot Goku RED has some serious Damage potential and some annoying, game changing components in his toolkit.

    SP Super Saiyan 3 Goku (Green)
    Explanation

    Stats

    HP 2299421
    Strike ATK 231293
    Blast ATK 256425
    Strike DEF 160490
    Blast DEF 161425

    Why this Tier?

    • He’s like SP Perfect Cell YEL, but for Saiyans. High Damage, disrupting Abilities and an Ultimate Move makes him a decent all-around Fighter.

    • His Health stat is excessively low, and his Damage is surprisingly ineffective.

    Discussion:

    SP SSJ3 Goku GRN is not what some people were expecting, and his situation continues to worsen. SP SSJ4 Goku GRN officially kicked him off the Saiyan core, but now even SP Super Kaioken Goku GRN is also superior on the core. It’s unfathomable that a LF Fighter might need a Zenkai, but that looks to be the case here.
