While the Meta was always in favor of Melee Fighter Teams, SP SSJ Kid Goku GRN is an amazing Ranged Fighter that can shake things up with his great Blast focused kit.
SP SJ Kid Goku GRN’s Abilities revolve around Buffing his Blast Damage as much as possible. His Unique Ability “Full Saiyan Power” greatly increases his Blast Damage output, but more importantly, decreases the cost of his Blast Art Cards by 15, making them actually cheaper than Strike Art Cards. The Ki cost of Blast Art Cards was usually the main issue that was holding back Ranged Fighters, so an Ability that reduces their cost is a welcome sight.
Additionally, his Extra Move can increase his Blast Damage even further, by up to +50% when holding three Blast Art Cards, which makes it potentially one of the strongest Damage Buffing Extra Move among all Fighters.
Need For Speed
Activating his Main Ability grants increased Arts Card Draw Speed by 2 levels for first 5 timer counts, then by 1 level for remaining 10 timer counts. When used correctly, this Ability coupled with his reduced Blast Art Cards cost allows SP SSJ Kid Goku GRN to perform a very long Combo, which will be a devastating blow to the Health of Enemy Fighters.
Once upgraded to at least 5 stars, this Fighter Buffs Saiyan Blast Attack and Strike Defense through his Z-Ability, which is rather uncommon because double Buffing Z-abilities are still a rare occurrence in the Saiyan Tag. This makes him a great addition.
One Minute Man
While his Unique Ability “Full Saiyan Power” is active, he’s an excellent Ranged Fighter thanks to his Blast Art Cards cost reduction but as soon as this Ability expires, he becomes a rather mediocre Fighter that needs to rely on his Teammates to carry the rest of the Match.
Card Draw Dependency
Majority of SP SSJ Kid Goku GRN’s Damage comes from his Unique Ability “I’m getting pumped!”, which has potential to provide great Blast Damage Boost when drawing Blast Arts Cards into empty hand. However, he will struggle to properly utilize this Ability when swapped into with a hand full of Arts Cards.
SP SSJ Kid Goku GRN is a perfect match for his son, SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED. Both of them are great Ranged Fighters that rely on using Blast Arts Cards as their main source of Damage, have ways to Buff their Blast Damage, and reduce the cost of Blast Arts Cards. SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED’s Unique Ability rewards him for using Blast Arts Cards while SP SSJ Kid Goku GRN benefits from drawing them himself and both of them bring two Blast Arts Cards to the deck, meaning they compliment each other very well.
As a Super Saiyan, SP SSJ Kid Goku GRN will greatly benefit from Damage and Critical Boosts provided by SP SSJ Bardock BLU while SP SSJ Broly PUR, as a Ranged Fighter himself, will also take advantage of the extra two Blast Art Cards in the deck.
SP SSJ Kid Goku GRN is a Ranged Fighter that can effectively utilize side-step due to his Main Ability increasing his Card draw speed, so this is a must have due to the Buffs for Blast Attack and Ki Recovery Speed.
The Damage to Hybrid Saiyan is still not utilized too often, but the Tag is gradually growing. Health and Blast Attack still makes it worth it.

Ranged Fighters have always been a step behind Melee Fighters due to how hard it can be to use Blast Arts Cards effectively, but SP SSJ Kid Goku GRN makes utilizing his Ranged toolkit a breeze.
He gains Damage Buffs for every Blast Arts Card drawn. Coupled with his Main Ability which increases Card draw speed, this allows him to do significant amounts of Damage.
SP SSJ Kid Goku GRN seems to be following the trend set by SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED of increasing Blast Attack viability. His reduced Blast Arts Card costs for the first 60 timer counts which, on top of his Blast Damage inflicted and Damage Received Buffs, make him an exceptional Fighter right out of the gate.
