Character Info

Battle Style
Arts Cards Held


EX DK Piccolo PUR has extremely high and well-rounded stats for an Offensive Fighter, and while he can give his Team lots of advantages, there are enough drawbacks to make many seasoned Players pass him over.

In addition to holding the wrong Arts cards for his Fighting Style, EX DK Piccolo PUR's Ki Recovery Speed is so low that he might as well not have the stat at all. And while one of those Strike Arts Cards inflicts Poison and would be of great use to an actual Melee Fighter, this would require carrying along EX DK Piccolo PUR as dead weight.

But what really makes this Fighter so frustrating is that he isn’t Tagged as a Piccolo variant. The reason for this is from some pretty old Dragon Ball lore. Basically, the Piccolo from Dragon Ball Z is the reincarnation/son of the Demon King Piccolo who existed in the original series. This isn’t just a different story arc--this is a different person who now needs to get some Equips of his own.


Blast Damage and Ki Recovery

This Fighter’s Unique Ability gives him increased Blast Damage for 20 timer counts after the Match starts; coupling this with his card cost reduction and Ki Recovery Speed Boosting Main Ability and Blast Damage Extra Move make him a great starting Fighter.


Crippling Ki Recovery Speed

Unfortunately, while this Fighter has a lot of potential, everything that would make him a great Ranged Fighter also has a huge disadvantage. Even though his Blast Attack is quite high, his Ki Recovery Speed is too low to use without an entire team to Boost him--even taking into consideration his own Ki Buffs.

His viability as a Match starter is heavily tempered by Ki being his weakest stat. He would likely burn through Ki so fast in the beginning that he would need to switch out before his Main Ability is even charged.

If that weren’t enough, his temporary Unique Ability is the only one he has. Every balancing measure built into EX DK Piccolo PUR ends up making him unplayable.

Poor Tag Synergy

While a color-locked Z-Ability isn’t a complete disadvantage in the current Meta on its own, EX DK Piccolo PUR’s fate is sealed by how few Purple Fighters are in the Regeneration Tag.

Team Synergy

Purple Color Counter

Outside of being a powerful force all on his own, EX DK Piccolo PUR doesn’t bring much Support to a Team unless they are Purple.

Since Monochromatic Teams are a risky choice in the current Meta, a viable alternative to this that gives his Z-Ability use is a Purple Color Counter Team. He Buffs two stats--even at 0 stars so at the very least, he's useful on the bench.
