Core
Bench

Kid Buu can be used instead of DKP or Goku Black whenever you need it. Cell is generally a staple here because he's the only one on the Team that provides Defensive utility. Broly is considerably below the other Core units so he's only worth it in extremely favorable conditions for him.

  • He's an explosive Offensive Fighter that starts with high Damage Buffs, and gets even better by activating his Extra Moves and even simply staying on the field for long periods of time ( thanks to his Debuff ). Last but not least, both his Special and Ultimate Move are perfect tools to finish off an opponent.
  • His durability isn't ideal due to his low stats at 3*.

  • He’s objectively one of the best Defensive Fighters in the Game,in that regard nobody can control the flow of the match as well as he does in early stages of a Match, both because he effectively resurrects and because he has an incredible Substitution Count reduction mechanic.
  • After Transforming, he becomes an overall powerhouse, since his Damage output skyrockets and his Special-Extra Moves become very oppressive.

  • After Transforming he becomes really powerful Offensively, as he’s able to chain together Combos while getting stronger as he draws more Card, which is incredibly easy in normal situations. As a plus, his Main Ability instantly makes him much stronger for a short period of time.
  • He’s deceptively good Defensively, as he has some useful Damage Reduction Buffs and a nice Ki Reduction mechanic that makes him great at taking Combos against Fighters that rely on Arts Draw Speed.

  • He's the definition of slow starter: right off the bat, Demon King Piccolo is pretty average, and considering his Transforming conditions are harsher than most Fighers of the same kind, that might be an issue for some people.
  • On the other hand, his Transformation is likely the strongest in the Game. Primarily, right after his rejuvenation, he regains a full hand of cards and Ki, so he can gain a lot of momentum really fast. However, in general he's just an Offensive powerhouse, especially in a Blast Based Team such as this one.

  • Almost nothing in his toolkit stands out in a positive way. In fact, his Damage Buffs are on the low side if he's not facing Son Family opponents, his lack of consistent Arts Draw Speed isn't ideal, and his defensive utility is limited by his low defenses, however...
  • ... his Ultimate Move is quite the nuke. He can Boost its Damage Buff up to 110% by simply using some Strike Cards throughout a Match, and considering it also hits AoE based on the Damage it dealt on the field, using it on a Purple Fighter can even end a Match in some situations.

Discussion

Powerful Opponent is a Tag on the rise, and it finally found an identity after receiving a couple of great Fighters.

In term of how the Team plays, Kid BuuGoku BlackPerfect Cell, and Demon King Piccolo all synergyze pretty well since they're all Blast based Fighters, so you can make a good trio out of any of those. That said, SP Perfect Cell RED's presence on the trio is needed since he's the only one that provides significant Defensive utility.

Offensively, Goku Black and Kid Buu are probably the most immediate Fighters on the Team, and both are quite the wildcards. In fact, both can stay on the field for longer than most Fighters, but the reasons differ from one another: Goku Black can draw a lot of Cards in a single Combo, and Kid Buu can regain his Vanish Gauge quite fast in different ways. In both cases, this peculiarity makes them quite self-sufficient when it comes to inflicting Damage, so they're not particularly hindered by the lack of Supportive Effects on this Team.

All in all, constant Arts Draw Speed, general Card Draw Effects and Ki Restoration tools make it easy to chain long combos on this Team, which can result in pretty deadly outcomes.

Overall, the Team is steadily getting better, it might not be Top Tier yet, but it's finally playable at a high level consistently.

He's a seriously good option, thanks to his high Strike Damage output, and his capability to manipulate opponents' Dragon Balls. Sadly, this Team is rather Blast Based.

He's a bit like Kid Buu, in the sense his Offensive ceiling is pretty high and his Buffs keep stacking up as he remains on the field. His issue is that his base Offensive Buffs are considerably lower than Kid Buu's, and it's also harder for Broly  to get his conditonal Buffs, so Buu's superior reliability makes him a better option.

He's a decent Strike Based Fighter with nice Anti-Cover Effects, but he falls short compared to Goku Black overall, especially because the latter's Blast Damage is much higher.

Once his Blast Damage Buffs stack up, he can be pretty terrifying Offensively, but his Overall Damage Buffs expiring after 50 counts puts a limit on his Offensive potential, especially if his Blast Buffs get somehow cancelled.

He's still decent thanks to his nice Damage Buffs, Dragon Balls manipulation capabilities, and resourceful Debuffs.
