Amidst all the Game-Breaking, Meta-Changing and Power Creeping new Fighters, it had been quite a while since Legends saw the release of a new gag character.
Luckily, SP Taitans Yamcha PUR is here to save the day once again and this time as a free-to-play Sparking rarity variant that the Players have much longed for. He has surprisingly powerful self Buffs, Enemy Debuffs, and an amusing kit to say the least.
It's a Ki Blast!... It's a Blast Attack!... It's a Ball
His ability to counter tap shots and Blast Arts by converting them into Home-runs not only makes PVP an excruciating experience for the Enemy but also gives him a multitude of Buffs depending on how many Home-runs he lands.
The Home-run counter—ranging from 0 to 7 and accelerating with downed Teammates—grants either a self Buff or an Enemy Debuff with each increment. These range from boosting own Arts Card draw speed and Critical Damage to increasing the Enemy's Strike Arts cost. Most notably the 7th Home run grants him a 100% boost to Rising Rush Damage along with instantly drawing 7 Dragon Balls.
Filling up the Home run counter isn't easy without being the last-man-standing since the Enemy can catch up to what's going on and adjust their playstyle. However, this Fighter is so squishy that he just can't hold his own once he achieves that position and failing to land the Rising Rush would more or less guarantee a defeat.
Locked to PVE
His low stats and lack of viable Tags make him a poor pick for going into PVP however he does see a breakthrough in PVE since it's much easier to land Home runs, helping beat tough bosses and completing Rishing Rush X-Damage missions and challenges.
He can always be used as an Extra Move supply for Blast-centric Teams that can make good use of it. However a gag Team focused around him would comprise of SP WC Hercule RED and SP King Dabura BLU. Activating both SP Taitan Yamcha PUR's and SP WC Hercule RED's Main Ability would increase Strike and Blast costs for the Enemy to 99, putting them to a standstill for a short time.
A Blast Buff since he also holds a Blast card other than the Extra Move card and something to give him better Defenses and increasing Ki Recovery Speed is a great choice here.
