  • His incredible Offensive proficiency is represented by his capability to impact Matches at any point, thanks to enormous Damage Buffs and great Ki management. Moreover, he’s a perfect counter to Fighters that can Heal, and more in general Regeneration Fighters.
  • Multiple Damage Reduction Buffs and high Defensive stats make him quite tough to put down.

  • He’s just an incredibly frightening Fighter all around, since he’s an Offensive behemoth right off the bat, he Supports his Teammates with high Blast and Ki Recovery Buffs, he’s hard to kill thanks to his high Defense, and becomes even stronger in late Game.
  • Just like during his first prime, once his allies fall he becomes much stronger, specifically because his Main Ability becomes able to remove type disadvantage, so he’s able to one combo pretty much any opponent in the Game at that point, also because his Ultimate Move hits like a Rising Rush.

  • Compared to his allies, his Offensive potential isn't that high right off the bat, however Gohan's Supportive Ability helps him in that regard.
  • He becomes one of the best Crisis Fighters in the Game, as most of his Offensive Unique Abilities activate once his allies fall. Also, his Special Move mechanic has high skill celing, so facing a SP Angry Goku BLU controlled by a good player can be nightmarish.

  • He doesn’t Buff Son Family through his Z-Ability, however he still has Team Synergy, as SP SSJ3 Goku PUR needs a Saiyan ally to activate some important parts of his Unique Abilities.
  • At release, SP Youth Goku YEL was a monstrous versatile Fighter, while now he’s just a “jack of all trades, master of none” type of Fighter. However, this isn’t a bad thing, as there are other Fighters on this Team that can take the lead.

Discussion

Son Family is a shockingly powerful Offensive Team, boasting impressive Support and constant One-Combo-kill potential.

SP SSJ3 Goku PUR and SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED have been completely rejuvenated by their Zenkai Awakenings, it can be argued that they're the best duo in the game despite having different playstyles, as their raw Damage output is often enough to destroy opponents' hopes of victory.

To a lesser extent, SP Angry Goku BLU's Zenkai also improved the Team, since it now has three Fighters that can dominate opponents in as "Last Man Standing". This is tactically very convenient, because regardless of how Matches unfold the Team will have very high chances to win in late Game scenarios.

SP Youth Goku YEL remains a better option than SP Goten (Kid) YEL on this Team, as his Saiyan synergy with SP SSJ3 Goku PUR is very important -  the latter doesn't have any Damage Reduction Effect in most cases otherwise, making the Team less durable as a result -. Practically he's still a decent option, but it's only worth to use him over the big trio against very specific Builds - Saiyan to counter SP SSJ3 Goku PUR for example, especially considering that Team lacks a good RED - 

Son Family finally fixed its Ability Bonus issue too since its Core completely revolves around Zenkai Fighters, who can generate Base Buffs for themselves through their immense Zenkai Abilities, although a Health Z-Ability is still missing - but it's not needed in the slightest -.

To wrap it up, the Team doesn't have any particular weaknesses and sits very comfortably at the top of Z tier.

He's a very good Offensive and Supportive Fighter, however SP SSJ3 Goku PUR needs to be paired with a Saiyan, so SP Youth Goku YEL is more useful currently.

His Blast Damage potential is high, and now that there are more Saiyan Fighters in the core, his Z-Ability isn't completely wasted, but he's still a worse option than SP SKK Goku GRN because both aren't worthy to be used over other Core Fighters, so the latter having a better Z-Ability is more important.

The Core is getting more and more Saiyan based, even Ability Bonus wise, which hurts his viability. He's still a playable option thanks to his Strike Lock mechanic and decent Offensive potential, but he's not really at the same level as the Core Son Family Fighters.

He's a good Supportive Fighter, but unless he has high stars, his survivability is really low ( even Red Fighters can inflict high Damage to him at average stars).
