|'Shadow Dragon Saga' Category Ki +3 and HP, ATK & DEF +150%; or PHY Type Ki +3 and HP, ATK & DEF +50%|
Omega Shenron is the only Leader for this category that will allow it to reach maximum power. However, UR Culmination of Hope - Goku (GT) (S. INT) is another Shadow Dragon Saga category leader, who provides Ki +3 and HP, ATK & DEF +77% to the Team. As of now, he was only available during the 4 Year Anniversary celebration, so there may not be another chance to obtain this Card.
Shadow Dragon Saga is one of the first two categories introduced to the game, back in 2017. It was a pretty good category upon release, but new Cards released during the 4 Year Anniversary celebration bumped the category to the upper echelon.
The main rotation duo of LR Super Saiyan 4 Goku and LR Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta tremendously increase this category’s strength, making it a force to be reckoned with. This powerful duo share just over 50% in ATK Link Skills, and are easily capable of reaching their 24 Ki Super ATK due to their Passive Skills. Together, they are one of the best rotations in the game.
The next main rotation consists of Super Saiyan 4 Cards as well. Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta and Super Full Power Saiyan 4 Goku share 4 Ki and 25% ATK in Link Skills, all but guaranteeing a Super ATK from both of them. Coupled with their shared ability to Counter the Enemy’s Super ATK, this rotation provides destructive Damage and decent tanking capabilities.
Since the Super Saiyan 4’s steal the show for this category, the float positions are left to be occupied by Omega Shenron, Pan (GT), and the Guest Teammate. Omega Shenron does a good job in floater position by Debuffing Enemy ATK and DEF from his Passive Skill, and lowering DEF on Super ATK. Pan (GT) may not be a hard hitter or a good tank, but tacking an extra 30% ATK & DEF onto either main rotation significantly increases the amount of Damage generated per turn.
Shadow Dragon Saga does not have a wide variety of top tier Cards that other categories do. Therefore, the alternate choices are not outstanding, but some bring very useful tools to the Team for strategic play.
This Card activates all of Omega Shenron’s ATK Link Skills, and the duo together make an excellent rotation. The lack of DEF Boost on his Passive Skill limits his viability, however.
He's the alternate leader for the category, and is one of the best Cards to substitute on the Team. He has a nuking Passive Skill, which means his ATK and DEF can vary widely based on the amount of Ki collected.
This is a F2P Card able to be farmed from Omega Shenron’s Dokkan Event. He may seem lackluster but when lacking other Cards, he is very useful in many events, including Super Battle Road. His Link Skills are very cohesive with the Team, and the ATK & DEF Debuffing from his Passive Skill are extremely useful for reducing the Damage from hard-hitting Enemies.
The Shadow Dragons Category is an excellent Team overall due to a combination of powerful Cards and strong cohesion from Link Skills. Because of these strengths, the Team can beat any Event aside from the Infinite Dragon Ball History and Fighting Legend: Goku events. The one Event that this Team outperforms any other Team is ironically Omega Shenron’s own Dokkan Event. When Cards on the battlefield have the “GT” Link Skill activated, they will deal enormous Damage to the Enemy, making it significantly easier to beat.
