Piccolo SP has great Defense stats and amazing Abilities that keep him fairly relevant, despite his age.
At first glance, Piccolo SP may look like a Fighter with only Defensive viability, but he performs well in terms of Blast Attacks against Saiyans due to his secondary Unique Ability. Since the majority of the current top Fighters are Saiyan, this Ability will almost always be active and valuable.
His only drawback is his lack of Synergy with most of the Regeneration Tag. This prevents him from adequate Team Buffs through his Z-Ability and lowers his viability in a game with heavy power-creep.
A Good Tank
Despite being an older Fighter, SP Piccolo GRN's Defensive stats are still quite competitive and his Z-Ability boosts his Strike Defense even further.
With adequate Soul Boosting, he can Tank most Attacks so long as he isn’t at a type disadvantage and has good Team Support.
Through his Main Ability, SP Piccolo GRN can Restore 25% Health to everyone on the Team still alive.
This Ability is nothing short of amazing and a complete gamechanger. It’s especially useful for Fighters who survive with 1 Health point after a failed Rising Rush or a Dokabaki Impact.
This Ability is really useful, especially since the Side-Step re-work. When cover-switching during an Enemy Combo, SP Piccolo GRN can reduce all the Damage received from that by 50%.
This Defensive capability makes SP Piccolo GRN a valuable Team asset.
SP Piccolo GRN has limited Synergy since his Z-Ability is color-locked. Luckily, SP Good Buu GRN would benefit from this bench Buff. Unluckily, no one else would.
Low Offensive Viability
Although SP Piccolo GRN gets a Blast Attack Boost against Saiyans making his Damage output somewhat acceptable, his Attack stats are low leading to an overall drop in Damage output.
He may not be the first pick for Tank anymore, but he can provide some much-needed bench Support against the Strike-centric Meta.
SP Piccolo GRN has some very limited Synergy with this Team, but it's gained traction with recent updates. If there aren't any better options, he makes for a competent Tank. Players who summon SP Good Buu GRN can still use SP Piccolo GRN as bench Support.
Restores ally health by 25% and cures Abnormal Conditions. Requirements: 15 timer counts elapse.
Cover: Reduce Damage
Reduce damage received by 50% until combo ends when changing cover. +2 to own substitution count when activated.
SP Piccolo GRN’s Team-wide healing, Tank stats, and Cover Unique Ability make him a great Defense Style Fighter for most Teams, but with the release of SP SSJ3 Goku PUR, he’s too much of a flight risk.
He lacks Damage potential and Synergy from his Tags.
SP Piccolo GRN’s stats have become less impressive with the release of newer SP Fighters. The current lack of viable Teammates and Synergy puts this Fighter lower on the list.
