Since this Fighter has a Yellow specific Z-Ability, he would ideally be placed in a Team whose goal is to Buff that color as much as possible. He can also be used as a replacement in an Android Team if it’s missing key Fighters.
As of the third balance update, EX Android #16 YEL got some stat and Ability improvements but while this has made him even more PVP viable and Supportive, his stats still lag behind what has become the standard for core EX Fighters.
Whether it’s his Main Ability, Defeated Unique Ability, or Extra Move, EX Android #16 YEL gives his Teammates a very noticeable increase in Damage and Combo potential.
His Main Ability reduces the cost of Blast and Strike Arts Cards, his Extra Card gives his Teammates a +15% to Damage inflicted, and most importantly: he Buffs Teammate Damage by a sizeable 30% for 20 timer counts when he is defeated with an additional 15% for Android Teammates.
This secondary Unique Ability makes EX Android #16 YEL invulnerable to any kind of status Debuff, which comes in handy pretty often considering how many high tier Fighters have Moves and Abilities that inflict status Debuffs.
Mixed Arts Cards
Similar to SP Android #16 GRN, this is a Melee Fighter with very weak Blast Attack. However while SP Android #16 GRN has two Strike Arts Cards, EX Android #16 YEL has one Strike Arts Card and one Blast, severely limiting his Damage output.
While the Z-Ability isn’t bad, it limits the Teams this Fighter can join. Forcing him into an Android Team with the presence of SP Perfect Cell YELwould mean taking the place of a very valuable Fighter and reducing the overall Synergy of the Team.
Ideally, he’d go in a Yellow Color Counter Team, but even then, there are stronger Fighters available.
Yellow Color Counter
Since this Fighter’s Z-Ability Buffs Yellow Strike Attack and Strike Defense, he’s better suited in a predominantly Yellow Team with a Blue Fighter to cover their weakness to Red Fighters such as SP Zamasu RED and SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED.
The majority of SP Androids have been power crept or Synergize better with Female Warriors,so EX Android #16 YEL's recently improved toolkit puts him in a good position to join the core of this Team.
Androids aren't exactly back to the point where they can be competitive in PVP yet, this Fighter is a reliable Support regardless.
