  • He has multiple survivability tools, ranging from Damage Reduction to Healing Effects and Endurance.
  • He's not your regular unoffensive Tank, he's actually pretty amazing Offensively. On his own, he can do a lot of Damage and has an Ultimate Move that locks in opponent - one of the most useful Effects you can have on such a powerful attack -. Support wise, he provides good Buffs for his allies when hit, which is consistent considering how Tanky it is, and his Main Ability provides useful utility.

  • High Damage Buffs right off the bat, Blast Armor, anti-Special Cover mechanic, Jiren has everything you'd want from a powerful Damage dealer. 
  • In late game he becomes even more powerful thanks to his Last Man Standing Effect, and his Ultimate Move is the perfect attack to strike decisive blows.

  • His card draw mechanic makes his Offense very consistent, but don't expect him to deal outlandish amounts of Damage unless he uses an Extra Move at the start of the Combo.

  • He's pretty resourceful in general thanks to his low sub count by default, and his Main Ability that among other things buffs his allies and empties the opponent's hand, but don't let take him Damage or he'll evaporate.

  • He does a bit of everything, as his Damage is decent right off the bat, his Debuffs are nifty, his Support is useful, and his Extra Move's Effects are incredibly good.
  • He shouldn't be considered very durable in this Zenkai Meta, however his Main Ability provides a nice self-heal while also nullifying Type Disadvantage for 20 timer counts.

Discussion

Rival Universe finally has a solid structure after Universe 11's arrival.

The Pride Troopers together make a well oiled machine since every Fighter on the Team covers a very specific role - but this doesn't mean they're all one dimensional -.

In particular, Toppo is surprisingly the leader of the Team in most matches, as his Tankiness, combined with his Support and Offensive potential, make him the Fighter that gets the others on the Team going. Him and Jiren make a spectacular duo, especially because the latter can make use of Toppo's Support with his nigh unstoppable Combos.

The third Fighter on the Team is either Dyspo or Champa. The God of Distruction has a better toolkit, but Dyspo fits better the Strike identity of this Team, so in neutral scenarios he's the more useful options - Champa becomes a must to bring against the surprisingly common Purple Color-counter Builds -

Overall, the Team is very solid thanks to its capability to convert disadvantageous situations into explosive comebacks thanks to great Defensive tools, ever increasing Offensive Effects, and destructive Ultimate Moves.

He's not particularly worse than Dyspo as a Fighter, as he's a good Defensive options with decently high Offensive potential, so if you lack the Pride Trooper but you have Bergamo, don't despair.

He's pretty good Offensively. Main Ability that refresh Vanish have always been great options, and he makes no exception since he can use that to keep his Offensive burst going for longer.

Her fantastic Supportive Effects would've been exceptional for this Team if she didn't have the same color as Jiren. She's a good alternative for him nonetheless.
