At long last, one of the more desired Fighters has come and he’s just as fun as one would expect. His toolkit does a marvelous job mimicking the character from the anime but can also decimate an entire Team if played correctly.
Similar to SP SSJ Broly PUR, he’s a transforming Fighter that gets a massive stats upgrade, access to new Abilities and his infamous red aura to go along with it after he uses his Main Ability. However unlike typical transformations, this one only lasts for 60 timer counts.
Arguably his most notable feature is his Special Move. While a regular Kamehameha in his normal state, after he has reached a few pre-requisites, it becomes a 4x Kaioken Kamehameha.
This Special Move will knock him out of his transformation but in return, will do grotesque amounts of Damage to anyone who dares stand in its way.
Eerily similar to SP SSJ Broly PUR, this Fighter becomes a one-man army after transforming. His Defenses, Strike Attack, and Health all sky-rocket making him an extremely high-priority target. The transformation lasts for 60 timer counts, which is plenty of time to lay a beating on the Enemy Team.
While his stats are still serviceable before transforming, they are nothing compared to his stats after transforming.
Luckily for him, only a mere 10 timer counts must pass for him to be able to transform via his Main Ability, allowing him to start wreaking havoc very early on.
Nuke Special Move
After reaching Kaioken 3x by using an Extra Move, he gains access to 4x Kaioken Kamehameha as a Special Move.
This is essentially a mini-Rising Rush, and can be used to land the finishing blow on almost any Fighter in the game, or at the very least, severely wound them.
Much like in the anime, this transformation does not come without its drawbacks. His Main Ability after his initial transformation gives him some more Buffs, but also decreases his Health by 15%.
4x Kaioken Kamehameha is an incredibly powerful Attack but it forcibly takes him out of the Kaioken transformation and severely Debuffs him in a multitude of ways. It must be used with caution.
A Team centered around Son Family, specifically Goku variants, performs very well in a PVP setting due to his Z-Ability at 5 stars.
He and SP SSJ3 Goku PUR form a down-right terrifying duo, as SP SSJ3 Goku PUR not only protects him from Green Fighters but they both Buff each other significantly.
Blue Color Counter
If SP Kaioken Goku is below 5 stars and only has access to his Strike Attack and Strike Defense Z-Ability Buff for Blue Fighters, he still performs excellently in a Strike-centric predominantly Blue Color-Counter Team.

SP Kaioken Goku BLU has an extremely powerful Transformation that lasts for 60 seconds and can really put the pressure on Enemies--and because of his “I’m Gettin’ Excited…!” Unique Ability, the more they evade him the stronger he becomes.
While transformed SP Kaioken Goku BLU is Z tier, however the toll it takes and lackluster non-transformation stats mean he probably shouldn’t see the field for the first 10 timer counts.
Despite minor drawbacks, he has an incredible toolkit overall. He becomes the kind of Fighter that can easily obliterate any Enemy.
