Being one of the first SP free Fighters that Players can get their hands on, SP SSJ Goku RED is a decent Fighter for what he has to offer.
He’s part of the Saiyan Tag, has good Synergy within it, and despite being victim to power creep due to being an older Fighter, still has respectable Blast Attack.
Main Ability Ultimate Combo
This is one of the best kinds of Main Ability that can be found in the game--one that entirely removes chance and guarantees a specific draw. In this case, Goku's Ultimate Move.
Thanks to his “Super Dragon Fist” Ultimate Move which only costs 20 Ki, SP SSJ Goku RED can execute some nice Combos and deal respectable amounts of Damage.
Even when S PSSJ Goku RED isn’t an active fighter, he’s really good on the bench, thanks to his Main Ability that Boosts all Saiyan Strike Attack by 19%-25%. Due to this group being the most populated in the game, it’s easy to understand why this Fighter’s Z-Ability especially beneficial.
SP SSJ Goku RED’s Defense is pretty underwhelming for an SP Rarity Fighter, as it’s more competitive among EX Fighters. His Health stat isn’t great either, making this Fighter a glass cannon--completely Offense-oriented.
Two Strike Cards
Even though it’s not a huge weakness, it’s still weird to see a Ranged Fighter with such a high Blast Attack stat holding two Strike Arts Cards.
This greatly limits his potential in Ranged Attacks and completely wastes these Cards unless an entire Team is built around him--which is unlikely and unrecommended.
Useless Unique Ability
SP SSJ Goku RED Boosts his own Blast Attack by 35% when a Krillin variant dies. Even though plot-wise this is a faithful Ability, it’s incredibly situational as there aren’t many Krillin Fighters worth playing right now.
Due to his Z-Ability, SP SSJ Goku RED has really good Synergy with most Saiyan Teams. He Boosts Strike Attack, which helps some really powerful Melee Fighters for a Tag that has a huge influence over the current Meta.
Also, SP SSJ Goku RED is pretty good on his own thanks to his Main Ability and is still quite competitive in PVP fights.
Red Color Counter
SP SSJ Goku RED in primarily Red Teams is not terrible, but not awesome either. Red teams are more Range Focused, which means he fits right in. However, this means his Strike focused Arts Cards and Z-Ability are likely to be wasted unless the off-color Fighter is a Saiyan Melee Fighter.
SP SSJ Goku RED brings two Strike Arts Cards and a Strike Buff to the SaiyanTag, making him a great complement to the other Z Tier Saiyan Fighters.
His overall stats are no longer impressive, and he’s really only useful on the bench.
Between the Anti-SaiyanSP Goku Black YEL and other Tags’ Saiyan countering, SP SSJ Goku RED is now just too old to be relevant without a lot of help and can only be realistically used for his Z-Ability.
