Overview

This is a Fighter that basically broke PVP upon arrival. Aside from the good stats he has, the most interesting thing to note is his Main Ability, which can prevent switches for 10 timer counts. When played correctly, this puts the Enemy in a dangerous situation, as their Vanish Step Gauge will quickly deplete, leaving them open to Attack.

SP Bardock GRN is a valuable asset in both PVP and PVE thanks to his high stats and buffs.

Strengths

Can Prevent Switches

His Main Ability can prevent Switches for 10 timer counts. This has a lot of possible uses, especially in PVP: lock an Enemy into an Element disadvantage match-up, or abuse an empty Vanish Step Gauge to perform a full combo. If said Combo is performed by SP Bardock GRN himself, the Damage dealt will be increased even further by the 40% Strike Buff SP Bardock GRN. The window is narrow but if played correctly, it can decide the fate of certain matches.

So Much Health

Bardock at level 1.500 has around 473k points to Health. This makes him one durable and hard to kill Fighter. On top of this, he can be played in Green Teams. Pairing SP Bardock GRN with SP GRN Piccolo further increases his durability.

Cancels Debuffs and Boosts Ki

Bardock can cancel any kind of debuff with his Extra Art card, "Quiet Rage". This makes every kind of debuff-centered Fighter he faces way less powerful with the added bonus of some quick Ki Recovery.

Good Overall Stats

Aside from Critical and Blast Attack, SP Bardock GRN is a really well-rounded fighter, making him quite versatile in a fight.

Weaknesses

No Ultimate

An Ultimate probably would've been asking too much considering what this Fighter can already do with his Main Ability, but the lack of a 20-Ki cost Ultimate Moves decreases the overall Damage dealt by this Fighter. It's not a huge loss or something that ruins the Fighter, it’s just something he could've had but doesn’t.

Average Blast Attack

This Fighter is focused on Strike damage, so it was inevitable that his Blast Attack stat would be toned down to compensate. But even though his Blast attack is average at best, it's still better than many other SP Fighters out there--it's a decent value for a Melee Fighter.

Team Synergy

Saiyan

This Fighter is one of the better Saiyans available and his Z-Ability can power up the entire Team. Playing Bardock is kind of mandatory in this Team Build, especially in PVP matches. Regarding PVE, all the buffs he can give make SP Bardock GRN is a good choice for PVE Events as well.

Green

This fighter pairs nicely with SP Piccolo GRN, so a Single Element Team Build that otherwise ignores Health Recovery and focuses Damage Output-- like Teams involving SP Super Trunks GRN--would be a great fit for this Melee Style Fighter.

Recommended Soul Boosts

Focus Health and Strike Attack first, the two stats where this Fighter shines the most. Players who plan to run him with a Ki Recovery focused Teammate, aim for Health first in order to maximize. Otherwise, Strike Attack would be the priority.
