As a SaiyanFemale Warrior, EX Caulifla RED was released with lots of Equip and Team options but sadly, her toolkit makes her somewhat difficult to use in the core.
However, since she has a dual stat Buffing Z-Ability, she’s a great option to put on the bench of any Red color counter Team.
Hard to Catch
From the moment she enters the field to the moment she’s hit, EX Caulifla RED is doing an extra 40% Damage. Her Extra Move also reduces the chances of her getting hit by Restoring 40 points of her Vanish Gauge.
Blast Damage Buffs
Not only does this Fighter have many Abilities to increase her Blast Damage output, her Main Ability also increases her Arts Card draw speed by 1, instantly Restores her Ki by 50, and reduces Blast Arts Card cost by 10 to make her Combos even longer.
Beyond having generally low stats, the biggest problem with this Fighter is that her toolkit would be better suited for a Melee Fighter in the current Meta. Being a Ranged Fighter means her Attacks are much easier to be side-step countered, the Damage Buff from Taunt won’t last very long.
Red Color Counter
EX Caulifla RED Buffs two stats from the beginning, which is great for a bench Support. Since she’s an EX, currently ungrindable, and power crept so soon after release, this is the best Team and placement for her.
She provides some Team Support through her Energize Unique Ability, so she’s a decent core pick for Players who don’t have any better options, but preferable that she be kept on the bench, but even then only if SP SSJ Berserk Kale RED is on the core for her to offer Support to.
This can give EX Caulifla RED a whopping +21% to Blast Attack, which is excellent for a Ranged Fighter despite the Critical slot.
If the Critical slot feels too wasteful, “Android #18” is an excellent choice as well just due to the sheer amount of Buffs it gives. Alternatively, “That's the Spirit!” is excellent as well. She has multiple ways to Restore her Ki Gauge and her Extra Move Restores her Vanish Gauge instantly by 40%. “That’s the spirit” makes her that much better at Combos while also being hard to catch.
Bring It On
Restores own Ki by 50. Increases Arts Card Draw Speed by 1 level for 15 timer counts. -10 to own Blast Arts cost for 15 timer counts. Requirements: 10 timer counts must elapse.
Taunt: Inflicted Dmg UP
+40% to damage inflicted when this character enters the battlefield. This effect is canceled when enemy lands an attack.
Energize (Female Warrior): Blast Atk UP
+20% to allied "Tag: Female Warrior" Blast damage for 15 timer counts when this character enters the battlefield.
She Z-Buffs two stats, but is color-locked and not farmable
She has a great Blast Support toolkit.
EX Caulifla RED has promise, but her Blast focused toolkit isn’t needed in the current Meta. This combined with a Z-Ability that conflicts with her Synergies means it’s gonna be hard to fit her into a Team.
