Stat-wise, SP King Dabura isn’t bad. He can be relied upon for high Blast Damage output and when push comes to shove, he makes for an admirable Tank too.
Finding the right Team for him gets a little tricky, however, since he really isn’t Tagged for anything.
This isn’t a complete loss, since he has such high stats, and he has more to bring to a Team than a Z-Ability.
A Little Extra Help
It’s the little things that make a huge difference, like SP King Dabura BLU’s Held Extra Arts Card--which he can use to instantly Restore Ki and reduce the Damage sustained from an Enemy’s Combo--and Main Ability which nullifies three of his own Attribute Downgrades and one each for his Teammates
Frozen in Fear
The resources to stop a Fighter in their tracks is incredibly valuable under the current Combat system. Paralysis can come in the clutch, freezing an Enemy in place to stop their Attack dead in its tracks and allowing for a counter. He has access to Paralysis via his Special Move and Blast Arts Card.
Much more importantly, SP King Dabura BLU seals a random card held by the Enemy Fighter for 10 timer counts when switched in. This effect significantly compromises Damage output.
Rebel Without a Tag
SP King Dabura BLU doesn’t just have limited Tags, he has none. This means barely any Equips to speak of, and no PVP viability unless he’s piggy-backed onto another Team Build with the understanding he won’t get Z-Ability Buffs unless there is another color-locked Z-Ability holder on the Team.
The silver lining to this is that he Buffs two stats with his Z-Ability, even at its lowest rank.
Even with an Extra Move that does so much, it comes at a price that builds over time. Even though the Extra Arts card only costs 10 Ki, every time it’s used, it increases the cost of his Special Arts Cards by 10 to a max of +30. Because of that, this is the sort of Move that should be used very sparingly.
Blue Color Counter
Since he doesn’t have any Tags, there’s no choice but to Assign SP King Dabura BLU by his color. On the bright side, opens him up to joining a Regenerationor Saiyan Team that will now have a second Extra Card and the option to Paralyze the Enemy. Since he has excellent stats across the board, he won’t be dead weight either.
This Fighter’s Extra Move held Arts Card, as well as the benefits the Move provides, are extremely valuable but it comes with the steep cost of increasing his Special Move cost by 10 the first three times the Extra Move is used.
He doesn’t have any Tags, limiting his Team viability and Equipment options.
SP King Dabura BLU is all about protecting the Team from debuffs while also debuffing the Enemy through paralysis and making some Arts Cards unusable.
A lack of Tags won’t completely make him unusable since his toolkit is too good not to use, but it means there’s a lot more to consider when putting him in a Team.
Power creep has also made him harder to fit into a Team.
