Team

Note: none of the builds below is the definitive best out of the suggested ones, the fighters highlighted below are just all strong enough to put up a serious argument to be on the team, so they're all listed. Also, "Bench" Fighters aren't necessarily worse than the "Core" Fighters, as the choice of which ones to use is dependant on the matchup.

The Dragon Balls in the LF icons indicate the stars required for them to be considered Core options. If a LF doesn't have the Dragon Ball, it means it's core regardless of Stars.

  • This Fighter is just an unstoppable force of nature. The switch mechanic alone is a terrifying Ability since allows Goku & Vegeta to be dangerous in any matchup through the Element Advantage swap, but the reason this Fighter is tremendous is not so simple. It's the combination of Offensive Buffs, constant Arts Draw Speed and Ki Regain, incredibly powerful Special Move and anti - Special Cover mechanic that provide essential contribution to make this Fighter so unbelievably good.
  • You'd think that impeccable Offense would be balanced through abysmal durability, but that's not the case. Not only this Fighter can withstand a lot of hits thanks to his Damage Reduction, he's also able to heal himself consistently, making him ideal in protracted battles despite the lack of Last Man Standing Abilities.

  • After his Zenkai he became an incredible Offensive power on Purple based teams. In fact, despite his initial Damage Buffs might not look great, the massive Zenkai Ability related Buffs he gets on triple Purple team just makes him look amazing at everything, at any point of a Match.
  • His Main Ability is just an insane death threat, as it grants him another Arts Draw Speed Effect on top of the other one he has, and gives him enough Buffs to put any opponent in the game in huge danger, regardless of the color. His Ultimate Move, in particular, just can't be stopped.

  • In a surprising turn of events, this ancient Fighter is worthy of this top team's core. His value is only still there in a triple purple composition, where the Zenkai Abilities make his stats decent. Thanks to his Support and Death Effects, he's able to heavily influence both the opponent's approach against your team, and how deadly your team can be, which is noticeable especially in the early stages of a Match when Super Vegito doesn't have many Damage Buffs for example.
  • He might not have a Revive or Endurance, but he has great RR control nonetheless since his Death Effects are so strong.

  • This Fighter is just massively powerful and consistent, thanks to high Damage Buffs, Healing, Damage Reduction, Arts Draw Speed, Special Gauge that makes him draw a Special Move every combo... did I mention he can also make you coffee?
  • His Crisis Effects are just as absurd as the rest of his toolkit, as he gets access to Lock-In and Element Neutral for a limited time as soon as one of his allies dies, and he draws an Ultimate Move when he's the Last Man Standing, other than also being able to draw another one through Main Ability. Essentially, it's just very hard to outlast this Fighter.

  • He's the perfect Fighter to pair with incredible Fighters such as Gogeta, as he can magnify their potential greatly through Death Effects for the most part, while also providing nigh-foolproof coverage for as long as he's alive thanks to his Sub Count reduction mechanics. 
  • His Offensive power is just average, but he still got some decent upgrades in that regard after his Zenkai so don't treat him as if he's completely worthless in that regard.

  • His Covers and Damage Reduction make him one of the best Defensive options for the team, as he's basically able to nullify up to three Combos per Match. At 3*, he won't be able to Tank much excluding these gimmicks, while at 6* he's more reliable.
  • His Damage output is pretty good granted you have his Unique Equip with great rolls, which his Anti-Revive Effects are some of the best in the game. As a matter of fact, he gets 4 Dragon Balls in total and 50% Damage Buffs when he procs a Revive Effect, meaning he can comfortably use a Rising Rush to deal with it and get back the tools to become incredibly oppressive. This fundamentally means he can negate the Revive mechanics' Rising Rush control.

Discussion

Outdated

Saiyan is a Team that thrives both Offensively and Defensively, mostly thanks to the magic called Zenkai.

The Build is just filled with some of the strongest Zenkai in the Meta, that become even more hellish to face when they're Supported by SP Vegeta YEL, who provides constant Healing to some of the toughest Defensive Fighters in the game on tis Team.

Not only that, but Vegeta also provides Offensive Support in terms of Ki and Damage Buff, and most importantly he continuously lowers his Teammates' sub counts, which makes his allies' Defensive Mechanics much more problematic to deal with for the opponents.

Such mechanics can be found in SSJ3 Goku and Ape Vegeta's kits, as Special Cover and Endurance are basically free "out of jail" buttons which contribute to make this Team excellent durability wise.

Offensively, the Team's identity doesn't really have a clear identity card-wise, as some Fighters prefer Blasts and other prefer Strike Cards, but generally the tactic is to stall into mid-late Game to finish off the opponent with one-hit-kill cards such as SSJ3 Goku's Ultimate Move, or in general through Unique Abilities that get stronger as Timer Counts elapse ( basically all Fighters on this Team excluding SP Vegeta YEL has time-gated Offensive Effects ).

Excluding its supreme ceiling in terms of general strength, Saiyan's main trait is definitely its versatility color-wise, which makes it easy for the Team to counter any type of opponent.

Saiyan is arguably the best Team in the Game, and it'll likely remain relevant for a long time since the influx of new Saiyan Fighters and Zenkais should remain constant.
