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 has been running rampant in PVP for what seems like an eternity at this point.
     
  • His Zenkai alone has completely revamped the tier list, and shifted the entire meta. It's hard to imagine what can even attempt to remove him from Z Tier.

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.

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:

Android #18 had been wreaking havoc in PVP ever since her Zenkai, and without a Blue unit all the while. SP Android #21 BLU’s Zenkai boost helps alleviate her weakness to Reds, and also unfathomably gives her an even higher Damage output. Most Reds were not safe from her onslaught to begin with. Her Z-Ability still targets Female Warriors, but it actually doesn’t hurt the Tag so much given the various #21 variants on Android.

Strike DEF 189907
Blast DEF 187700

Why this Tier?

  • His Zenkai boost has finally done him justice, as he’s a formidable fighter in multiple facets of PVP
  • PVP matches can quickly get out of hand if he’s able to force enough switches.

Discussion

SP SSJ3 Goku GRN was a bit underrated on release. While seemingly “balanced,” he’s still an exceptional all around unit that has a ton of durability, and a nuclear bomb Ultimate that’s hard to survive.

He still possesses his Cover:Rescue which puts a lot of pressure on the opposing Team. Most importantly, his Ultimate Move  -- supplemented by his Main Ability nullifying color disadvantage -- is now one of the hardest hitting Ultimate Moves in the game. Not many can afford to stand in it’s way, especially if he’s managed to build up some Buffs via his “Thank you, Dragon Balls!” Unique Ability.

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.

Why this Tier?

  • His Zenkai Boost has made him similar to his prime -- durable to start the match and devastating to end the match.
     
  • God Ki's lack of a red hurt the team as a whole, but LF Merged Zamasu has changed that

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 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.

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's the leader of the Super Saiyan team due to his switch out Buffs, but he himself is a devastating offensive force with some survivability thrown in just in case. He has changed the landscape of the game on multiple occasions now.

  • His cover nullification is insanely valuable in this meta.

Discussion

SP SSJ4 Goku PUR continues the theme of Zenkais who weren’t changed too drastically, but didn’t need too much anyway. His ability to nullify Cover Change when he hops onto the battlefield is an exceptional addition considering how prevalent they are in the Meta. GT now has a complete color wheel and he's a huge part of their success.

  • 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 can rip through the entire game. His ability to draw a Strike Arts Card and enough Ki to use it on entry is one of the more ridiculous things he can do. He's an outrageously powerful Offensive pivot.

  • 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, and Regeneration has been getting a ton of love in multiple updates in a row, making him even more effective. It's very hard to defeat Good Buu in a war of attrition, and he has plenty of defensive and offensive pivots at his disposal.

Why this Tier?

  • It’s unfortunate him being an LF unit limits him to ~3 stars for the Tier List, he’s excellent Offensively otherwise.
  • Even at 3 stars, he’s hard to catch and can deal some serious Damage.

Discussion

His toolkit works very well with itself in the sense that he has ways to increase his Vanish Gauge recovery, but also Debuffs the enemy/receives Ki the longer he stays on the field. He’s one of the most annoying Fighters in the game to face, but also one of the harder hitting ones especially if limit broken.


Due to limit breaks, we still prefer SP Android #21 BLU on the Regeneration core, but the Blast-based Regeneration team with Kid Buu and SP Piccolo YEL is not far off. Alternatively, we like Kid Buu as the primary blue for Power Opponent.

  • He pairs excellently with SP Android #18 YEL

Discussion

SP Super #17 GRN is intolerably durable. Whether it’s his innate survivability via high base stats, his Unique Abilities, his crippling energy-absorbing Extra Move, or his Ultimate Move which paralyzes the entire Team, fighting this unit is like fighting in quicksand.

His Offensively capabilities take a few prerequisites to unlock, but for a monstrous tank/disruptor type, he can output some very serviceable Damage, especially after his Main Ability. There’s plenty of Ranged Blue units in this Meta, and Super 17 completely nullifies them. Alternatively, he draws out Purples due to how hard he is to kill otherwise, which feeds right into what SP Android #18 YEL wants.

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 as well as how good he is in the hands of the average player, 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.

  • He’s one of the best Damage dealers in the game, and his sub-count Uniques make him and his Team very hard to play against.
  • He’s a bit more fragile than other Zenkais, his Card Draw Speed is situational and has no Ki Restore when swapped into the battlefield.

Discussion

SP SSJ2 Trunks BLU is a devastating Offensive powerhouse, but the lack of consistent card draw speed and no Ki Restore on switch in is something an Offensive unit like this desperately needs. Due to those considerable (albeit not too debilitating) flaws, he just misses out on Z Tier.


That being said, he’s an absolute mainstay on Future and Hybrid Saiyans, and his Ranged focus is perfect for the entire Future squad, and also for pairing with SP SSJ2 Gohan RED

  • His Zenkai was ultimately unnecessary at first as we still preferred SP Demon King Piccolo YEL on the core, but there's a solid Ranged-centric Regen team now.

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. SP Kid Buu BLU and SP Demon King Piccolo PUR lead the way for the Blast-regen variation, and SP Piccolo YEL synergizes very well with all of them.

  • He’s a debilitating Damage dealer that can catch people in a tandem that constantly forces them down and keeps them down, via his card destruction after killing an Enemy.
  • At both 3 and 6 stars he’s a bit fragile, but most of his teams can help keep him healthy.

Discussion

While Zamasu’s most glaring flaw is his survivability, his God Ki and especially Regeneration teammates can help him stay alive and do what he does best with a multitude of Cover Changes as well as Healing capabilities. One of the most notable parts of his toolkit is his AOE Extra Move which locks the opponent in and also puts him at type neutral for a few timer counts. This can outright win the game in some instances if he’s able to trap an important unit, which subsequently allows him to keep destroying cards after defeating an Enemy, constantly giving him the upper hand.

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

Discussion:

He and SP Piccolo YEL are interchangeable on the Regeneration core. He’s strike based,does great damage, and his Dragon Ball manipulation helps take advantage of one of the more powerful mechanics in the game in Rising Rushes. Alternatively, Piccolo is much more Ranged-focus and offers a bit more support and survivability. Either one can work, it ultimately depends on which units the Player has or prefers on the core. It is important to note Piccolo works better with the new SP Demon King Piccolo PUR

  • He actually adds a different dimension to Saiyan, essentially splitting the Team into two variations, both of which work equally well.

Discussion

For a while now, Saiyan has been predominantly led by SP SSJ Bardock BLU with the red unit being SP Super Gogeta RED. SP SSJ4 Vegeta RED much prefers a Blast variation with SP Angry Goku BLU and SP SSJ3 Goku GRN.

While SSJ4 Vegeta and Super Gogeta are a close call when comparing each other directly, both variations of Saiyan work just as well, with each having strengths and flaws that balance each other out. As a result, SP SSJ4 Vegeta RED has created a new ripple in the Tier list by putting some of the stronger Saiyan units on par with each other, and leaving Z Tier reserved for only the absolute best

  • He really conveys the character from the anime, someone with an indomitable fighting spirit who can do everything he can to help his Team win.
  • His base stats are on the lower side, which will hurt his placement a bit as he’s considered 3 stars.

Discussion

Gohan’s toolkit is simply sensational. Very high Damage inflicted boosts, Endurance, permanent Card Draw Speed, and tons of Support all wrapped in one. Unfortunately, his problem lies with his base stats. His Attack stats are remarkably low for a brand new Melee unit, especially one that carries a Legendary Finish. He has some decent survivability, but overall his base stats are not great.


The landscape of the game really doesn’t change with the addition of this unit. The Future core will remain the same in most matchups, and we value SP Goten YEL more on the core of Son Family.

  • Despite his role being primarily Defense, he can output a surprising amount of Damage at times. His Cover Change can be hard to play against and can turn the tide of a Match quickly.
  • He has some very slight team problems at lower stars.

Discussion

At ~3 stars, SSJ4 Gogeta’s team problems stem from SP SSJ3 Goku GRN being the primary Saiyan Green unit, and SP Super #17 GRN with his behemoth Zenkai stats/stalling capabilities being able to perform better at 7 (and potentially higher) stars in most instances. While SP SSJ3 Goku GRN still keeps the advantage over him when SSJ4 Gogeta is 6 stars, he closes the gap significantly with Super #17 as the main GT and Fusion Warrior green.

In general, SP SSJ4 Gogeta GRN is an excellent all-around unit that controls the combat loop very effectively, but simply needs a few limit breaks to really shine.

  • After Transforming, he’s one of the best units in the entire game.

Discussion

He needs to wait 30 timer counts or until he’s amassed 5 Dragon Balls in order to Transform, but afterwards he’s a devastating Offensive powerhouse. Through his Transformation completely refilling his Ki and hand, to debilitating Debuffs, to high Damage inflicted and card draw speed on entry, SP Demon King Piccolo PUR will be extremely hard to stop.

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

  • He’s an excellent beatstick with a potentially game-changing Extra Move, and his cover nullification is extremely valuable in this meta.
  • He’s excessively fragile, has no card draw speed, and needs some time to build up his Damage uniques.

Discussion

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 at least afford to take Damage. 

At 6 stars, his damage improves significantly and his Cover nullification has a much larger impact on the outcome of the game.

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.

Discussion

#21’s great support was to be expected after her Zenkai boost, but she does a great job stalling for her teammates now due to her increased card draw speed. When killed, she provides a Team-wide heal and increases her Teams Dragon Ball count by 2. 


Paired with someone like SP Demon King Piccolo YEL, their combined Dragon Ball manipulation can be completely game-changing. On Androids, she makes the infamous SP Android #18 YEL that much better, and gives her someone that can alleviate her weakness to Blue units. SP Perfect Cell RED appreciates the Special Move cost reduction and Damage increase as well.

  • 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.
  • It's hard to convey how good this unit is, really. He's held up phenomenally well in a game littered with oppressive Zenkais.

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.

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.

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.

His toolkit works very well with itself in the sense that he has ways to increase his Vanish Gauge recovery, but also Debuffs the enemy/receives Ki the longer he stays on the field. He’s one of the most annoying Fighters in the game to face, but also one of the harder hitting ones especially if limit broken.


Due to limit breaks, we still prefer SP Android #21 BLU on the Regeneration core, but the Blast-based Regeneration team with Kid Buu and SP Piccolo YEL is not far off. Alternatively, we like Kid Buu as the primary blue for Power Opponent.

Gohan’s toolkit is simply sensational. Very high Damage inflicted boosts, Endurance, permanent Card Draw Speed, and tons of Support all wrapped in one. Unfortunately, his problem lies with his base stats. His Attack stats are remarkably low for a brand new Melee unit, especially one that carries a Legendary Finish. He has some decent survivability, but overall his base stats are not great.


The landscape of the game really doesn’t change with the addition of this unit. The Future core will remain the same in most matchups, and we value SP Goten YEL more on the core of Son Family.

Discussion

Don’t be discouraged by Broly being Tier 1, 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 some great units, and is the clear cut starter on Sagas. It is important to note that while he does work with Bardock, the aforementioned "Nameku" has solidified his spot on the SSJ team, which ultimately hurts Broly's placement.

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.

While Zamasu’s most glaring flaw is his survivability, his God Ki and especially Regeneration teammates can help him stay alive and do what he does best with a multitude of Cover Changes as well as Healing capabilities. One of the most notable parts of his toolkit is his AOE Extra Move which locks the opponent in and also puts him at type neutral for a few timer counts. This can outright win the game in some instances if he’s able to trap an important unit, which subsequently allows him to keep destroying cards after defeating an Enemy, constantly giving him the upper hand.

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.

Discussion

On Regeneration, SP Good Buu GRN will remain the core option, but on Androids, she has a bit more incentive over SP Android #16 GRN. #16 is still an excellent tank and support, but he does take quite a bit to get going. The blast-heavy Android deck also does a disservice to #16, further lowering his damage output. Alternatively, #21 is a Ranged type, still has some survivability in her kit, a bit of utility, and of course her damage output is vastly superior.


That’s not to say #16 cannot be used in the core over her. He’s still very good, but his durability is not overly needed, as #21 GRN has a Cover Rescue, #18 and #21 BLU have high base defenses, and Perfect Cell has access to Revive. If the Player is faced against a Blue Color Counter Team that does not have SP Super Gogeta RED on the bench, both can be brought along if need be, however.

Why this Tier?

  • A Green damage dealer is actually a welcome addition to every Tag she owns.
  • On top of her high damage output, she owns up to 2 Cover:Rescue’s and her Ultimate has the capability of locking.

Discussion

On Regeneration, SP Good Buu GRN will remain the core option, but on Androids, she has a bit more incentive over SP Android #16 GRN. #16 is still an excellent tank and support, but he does take quite a bit to get going. The blast-heavy Android deck also does a disservice to #16, further lowering his damage output. Alternatively, #21 is a Ranged type, still has some survivability in her kit, a bit of utility, and of course her damage output is vastly superior.

He shouldn’t really be seeing the field too often as he’s mostly a Ki Battery with some bits and pieces of Damage and Defensive thrown into the mix, but his base stats and low percentages don’t really allow him to thrive in these situations. He’s an excellent Support through the aforementioned Ki Restore + Damage Inflicted when swapped out, but also due to his Team-wide Heal and and sub count reduction.

Discussion

If utilized correctly SP Nuova Shenron YEL can have a card draw speed advantage over his opponent with no cards in hand for either, allowing him to get the upper hand and take out a unit of his choice, but will be hard to pull off perfectly in a lot of instances, especially at high-rank PVP.

His Extra Move is an excellent means of stalling, but outside of that Nuova is lacking survivability. His extremely Strike-centric focus can also feel clunky if he’s unfortunate enough to draw Blast Cards after his Main Ability, or just in general.

The Super Saiyan team led by SP SSJ Bardock BLU is ripe with Offensive powerhouses, so Z7 Broly GRN really doesn’t need to fill that role. He can tank just about anything, and even put out surprisingly high Damage with his Extra Move into Special Move combo.

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 at least afford to take Damage.

Most notably, his Main Ability depletes the Enemy's Vanish Gauge entirely and draws him a Special Move with enough Ki to use it.

    Why this Tier?

    • 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.

    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 this by no means whatsoever means they are not up to par. On the best theoretical teams, these Fighters might be "secondary," but if the Player has not pulled the primary core Fighter, these units are highly recommended in the core.

    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

    Don’t be discouraged by Broly being Tier 1, 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 some great units, and is the clear cut starter on Sagas. It is important to note that while he does work with Bardock, the aforementioned "Nameku" has solidified his spot on the SSJ team, which ultimately hurts Broly's placement.

    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.

    Accelerating Rising Rush by drawing Strike Cards, clearing buffs with his Extra Move and quickly trapping and destroying SP Corrupted Zamasu RED with a Special Move has given this old dog some new tricks.

    Beerus is still a solid God Ki choice who has actually aged very well considering his release was what seems like an eternity ago, but his Damage is starting to fall behind. Still relevant, although a bit more matchup dependent and not necessary in most games.

    Discussion

    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.

    His Pride-Staked Assault special move does excellent, 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.

His Damage is not great unless paired with SP FF Cooler BLU, he is durable half of the time, but his Main is exceptional for any Team he works on. SP FF DBS Frieza RED is still superior on the Lineage of Evil core, but Metal Cooler is a great alternative if a more Defensive approach is warranted.


     

    Why this Tier?

    • After his Zenkai Buff, he has huge Defensive base stats
    • His Damage is still lackluster, but his Team heal is invaluable.

    #16’s durability is still excellent, just not needed as much as before. #21 GRN has access to 2 Cover: Rescue’s, the other Zenkais on the Team can act as a pseudo Defensive pivot due to high base stats, and SP Perfect Cell RED definitely doesn’t mind eating Rising Rushes in his base form. The blast-heavy deck also lowers his Damage output, which was already an issue for him.

    While still a good tank,
    SP Super #17 GRN just kicked him off the core for good.

    • He’s a pulverizing striker with some survivability, as well as a great Extra Move.

    Discussion

    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's Tier 2.

    Discussion

    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.

    Why this Tier?

    • He’s a good Melee Fighter with an atomic bomb for an Ultimate Move
    • He has some trouble finding a home, and his Damage inflicted is not too high for a 1% unit.

    Discussion

    SP SSJ Broly YEL does have a good toolkit, but it’s unfortunately attached to a non-Zenkai, non-Transforming unit. His Damage inflicted is a bit on the lower side unless he’s matched up against a Son Family unit, so he at least makes a nice counter to the likes of SP UI Goku PUR and SP SSJ3 Goku PUR

    If he’s not facing a Son Family team, his Ultimate which can scale up to an additional 80% Ultimate Move Damage inflicted can still make a dent in many units. Crucially, he does give Powerful Opponent a Health Z-Ability, which will keep him relevant in one way or another for a while.

    Dragon Ball Saga still has miles to go, but at the very least Yamcha can slide in there. Make no mistake however, the only reason the team can even begin to scratch the surface in terms of viability is almost entirely due to SP Demon King Piccolo YEL and SP Demon King Piccolo PUR

    Yamcha needs critical hits to do Damage, and even then it’s simply not enough. One of his Uniques also requires him to take Damage, which is the last thing a fragile unit like this would want to utilize.

    Why this Tier?

    • This Fighter has aged pretty well.
       

    • His Strike Attack, Special Move Damage and Supportive Abilities are all still pretty solid.
       

    Discussion:

    He’s still a good Offensive unit. SP SSGSS Vegeta (Future) PUR outright replaces him on the core of Vegeta Family, and Hybrid Saiyan doesn't really utilize him too much, but he's still a suitable replacement if need be.

    HP 2370908
    Strike ATK 224846
    Blast ATK 247019
    Strike DEF 161200
    Blast DEF 162817

    Why this Tier?

    • His toolkit revolves around his Ultimate Move activation, which gives him massive, permanent Buffs.
    • He has problems with his team.

    Discussion

    He’s very Blast-focused, which works against what almost every Movies unit would like to prioritize. Luckily his buffs don’t discriminate and are based on damage in general, so it’s not too detrimental. However, SP SSGSS Gogeta YEL just kicked him off the core of Sagas.

    Why this Tier?

    • His Zenkai boost made him into a pulverizing Melee Fighter.

    • He's behind SP Super Gogeta RED on the core.

    Discussion:

    He's good, but only if the player has not gotten Super Gogeta for some reason.

    Why this Tier?

    • He’s an OK Support and is a nice “tech” option against the Girls Tag
    • His stats are atrocious.

    Discussion

    He does have solid Support qualities, but he'll likely see only a microscopic bit of play on Dragon Ball Saga Teams until Players get fed up with him getting killed in 2 cards.

    Why this Tier?

    • His Support qualities are still good, most notably giving a Team-wide Heal of 10% every time he’s switched out.
       
       
    • He's been power crept.
       

    Discussion:

    Super Baby 2 went from an oppressive leader of Regen, to quickly falling off and never being recommended for PVP even when he was their only Blue. Now that SP Android #21 BLU and SP Kid Buu BLU much better on the core, he’s pretty much dead in the water

    Blast DEF 148828

    Why this Tier?

    • This Golden Frieza was easily one of the more oppressive Offensive units the game has ever seen, but he's ancient at this point.

    • His “Let Us Begin Our Revenge” Unique Ability increases Damage to Saiyans, and applies Attribute Downgrade "+35% to Damage Received" for 20 timer counts when he enters the battlefield.

    Discussion:

    SP Golden Frieza GRN was a downright terrifying Offensive Fighter, with his anti-Saiyan capabilities, high damage uniques and Debuffs, but he's seriously aged. SP Metal Cooler GRN is much better on the core now.

    Why this Tier?

    • He’s still pretty solid Defensively.
    • He’s everything Lineage of Evil needed on release, but Lineage of Evil went through a long stretch of neglect which hurt his viability.
       

    Discussion

    His slow, Defensive, attrition based style was horrible to deal with in his prime, but Lineage of Evil fell off for quite a while. That kind of style is also susceptible to aging quickly with power creep. At this point, the Player might as well use SP 1F Frieza PUR for quicker, much more Offensive opportunities right out of the gate. Frieza’s strike cover stopping units dead in their tracks and stopping the Combo completely can come in handy much more nowadays.

    SP Super Saiyan Goku (RoC) (Green)

    Blast ATK 227563
    Strike DEF 163062
    Blast DEF 168516

    Why this Tier?

    • He's been replaced on all of his best teams at least twice, at this point.
    • His Special Move can still be devastating.

    Discussion

    His Damage output can actually be a little inconsistent at times, but he’s supplemented very well by his team if he's used on Super Saiyan. 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.

    That being said, SSJ3 Goku GRN, Goku Black GRN, Metal Cooler GRN and Z7 Broly GRN have all replaced him on the core of his favorite teams multiple times.

    Blast ATK 249132
    Strike DEF 164060
    Blast DEF 164037

    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, his Team could use some better Z-Ability synergy if he's used on it, he's been replaced on Son Family, and GT has been neglected.

    Discussion:

    This SSJ4 Goku variant was pretty good on release. He didn't set the world on fire, but he was able to unleash significant Blast damage and unleash a monstrous Ultimate Move that also healed him for a whopping 40% of his HP. He's not even necessarily old, he's just been completely neglected and forgotten about in more ways than one.

    Why this Tier?

    • He receives a permanent 50% Damage inflicted Buff, as well as a huge 100% Boost to his Ki Recovery after a Rising Rush is used

    • His Damage until that point is very low

    Discussion

    He’s a solid starter on GT. He provides them a Defensive pivot as well as a way to deal with troublesome Purple Fighters all over the meta, like SP Fusion Zamasu PUR. The release of SP Omega Shenron RED was a huge help for him as well.
