If nothing else can be said about this Fighter, EX Goku BLU has staying power. Despite his age, his primary Offensive stats can remain competitive under very specific circumstances, and his Z-Ability gives any Saiyan Team a monstrous 27% Strike Attack Buff if he’s farmed to 7 stars.
That being said, EX Goku BLU does show his age in a few areas. The deterioration of his other stats has made him a glass cannon, which does not mesh well with his Unique Ability, which only comes into play if he’s the last Fighter alive.
Overall, this is a solid Fighter, whose Tags and versatile Abilities have stood the test of time.
Optimized For Melee
This Fighter was tailor-made for hand-to-hand combat. Every single one of his Abilities Buff Strike Damage, his held Arts Cards are optimized, and his Strike Attack stat is still reasonably good, despite being a much older Fighter.
Because this Fighter is farmable up to 7 stars and is now available in the new Z-Medal exchange shop, he can give a Saiyan Team a huge 27% Buff to Strike Attack, making him an incredibly strong bench option.
While his Strike Attack is still highly competitive, the same can’t be said for his Health, Defense, and Ki Recovery Speed. This means that he probably won’t be able to get enough punches in before he’s killed or has to be switched out. This is even more of a drawback when taking his Unique Ability into account, which requires that he be the last Fighter alive to even take effect.
This wasn’t as big a deal back when there were fewer Fighters to compete with, but now his stats are beginning to show their age.
EX Goku BLU is a classic Fighter without all the bells and whistles. He does the job he was made to do and even Buffs Teammates. He fits very well within his Tag. Because of his glass cannon stats and Strike Buffing Abilities, it’s recommended to play EX Goku BLU alongside another Melee Fighter.
While there aren’t many high tier Blue Saiyans, EX Goku BLU would be a great off-color Fighter in a Majority Yellow or Purple Team.
Even if the Entire Team isn’t composed entirely of Saiyans--SP DK Piccolo YEL is a fantastic Melee Fighter who debuffs Enemies when he’s switched in and would definitely benefit from EX Goku BLU’s Main Ability temporary Buff--having at least two would be enough to make his Z-Ability worthwhile.
