Tier Z

What makes a Team 'Z Tier'?

Consistent Teams Offensively and Defensively. All Teams in this Tier have multiple Win conditions, so they can afford to make mistakes multiple times per Battle without their chances of victory decreasing.

Why this Tier?

  • This Tag has some of the best Z-Abilities in the game.

  • Androids have great Fighters for each color, so it’s one of the most diverse in the entire Meta.

     

Discussion:

Offensively, SP Perfect Cell YEL is optimal against Z Tier Fighters such as SP Super Vegito PUR, and SP Android #13 BLU is able to inflict high Damage by himself. Also, The addition of SP Fusion Android #13 RED finally completed this Team, as it now can adapt to any matchup, considering that SP Android #14 GRN is a great option too, and SP Android #17 PUR is an ever-present Tank. The addition of SP Super #17 GRN adds more color and Defensive variety, further sealing this Tag’s position as the healthiest Tag in the game currently.

Why this Tier?

  • Son Family remains a top threat in PVP, benefiting from the release of both SP Angry Goku BLU and SP Goku GRN.

  • Boasting more Legendary Finish capable Fighters than any other Tag, Son Family remains a threat through overwhelming Ultimate Damage and tight Team Synergy.

Discussion:

Hybrid Saiyans, Super Saiyans, Saiyans, even Sagas Warriors, Son Family curates the best of these Tags into one supercharged Team packed with high Damage Buffs and record setting Ultimate attacks. The amount of viable Core options lets Son Family bend around the Color wheel or even Teams with Anti-Saiyan or Anti-Hybrid Saiyan Abilities. Son Family is likely to always receive further Support, as Goku and Gohan variants are some of the more common

Tier S

What makes a team 'S' Tier?

The Teams listed here would be Z Tier worthy it wasn’t for some small flaws that either make them less diverse, or a bit less powerful as a whole. This Tier represents Teams who could mechanically work as 'Z' Tier Teams if not for the slightest of deficiencies. 

Why this Tier?

  • Sagas Warrior is a very strong and versatile Tag now thanks to the addition of SP FP Boujack PUR.

  • Sagas Warriors diverse Build option make it quite versatile Z-Abilities wise as well, however they still lack a Health Z-Ability.

Discussion:

The additions of SP FP Boujack PUR and SP SSJ Youth Gohan YEL really strengthened this Tag, making it one of the strongest in the entire Meta. Boasting incredible Offensive power and tough Defensive Abilities, this Tag only lacks a fitting Red option to be considered Z-Tier.

Why this Tier?

  • SP Ribrianne BLU is still one of the strongest Fighters in the game, her late game dominance makes the Team consistent.

  • The Universe 2 Build is amazing offensively, but it needs 5* Z-Abilities to be great Defensively as well.

Discussion:

This Team has finally been rejuvenated. SP Kakunsa PUR and SP Rozie YEL are the long-awaited partners SP Ribrianne BLU needed to make her force recognizable in PvP again. The Team is tremendous Offensively at any point of the Match, however the lack of durability prior to unlocking the new Fighter’s 5* Z-Abilities keeps Female Warriors out of the top two.

Why this Tier?

  • SP Golden Frieza GRN and SP FF Coora BLU make a nightmarish Offensive partnership, especially against Saiyan Teams thanks to the former’s Anti-Saiyan Unique Ability.

  • Finally, they have a Tank on the Team, as SP FF FP Frieza YEL can function as a shield to the other two’s reckless Offense.

Discussion:

While Lineage of Evil still suffers from not having many great Z-Abilities, its fearful Offense and annoying Defense makes it a S Tier Team. SP FF FP Frieza YEL’s color and toolkit make him one of the toughest Tank in the current Meta, and a much needed addition for this Tag. Compared to a few weeks ago, they are a bit less viable since they're lacking diversity.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Fusion Warriors are highly powerful and are well built to consistently compete in the Meta.  Yellow Color Counter is already decreasing in usage rate compared to last  few weeks, and with the addition of SP Super #17 GRN, Lineage of Evil and Frieza Force are less problematic matchups compared to before.

Why this Tier?

  • SP Teen Trunks PUR brings more consistent Damage to the Team and more flexibility in Team Builds, as opposed to SP SSJ Kid Goten PUR that restricted this Team to only be composed by Son Family Fighters.

  • Sharing Fighters with Son Family, Super Saiyan, Fusion Warrior, Future, and Sagas Warrior, Hybrid Saiyans have kept this Tag healthy on the battlefield as well as the bench.

     

Discussion:

Hybrid Saiyans have tons of powerful Fighters and a multitude of Z-Buffers that can bench for other more powerful Tags. Now that they have enough Fighters to Build multiple very competitive Teams, they are very competitive.

Why this Tier?

  • Saiyan shares the same core as Fusion Warriors, with the exception of Angry Goku BLU but with more bench options, such as SP Goku GRN.

  • This Team is very powerful, however it is countered by some of the most popular Builds in the Meta right now.

Discussion:

As always, the Saiyan Tag has many Fighters to Build a Team with. Its strongest one features some of the strongest Fighters in the Game. Thanks to SP Angry Goku BLU and SP Goku GRN, this Tag has more reliable options than Fusion to compete in the Meta.

Why this Tier?

  • SP Golden Frieza GRN is the pinnacle of Frieza Force power and the undisputed champion for this Tag, and SP FF FP Frieza YEL is the perfect partner for him as he can continuously be his bodyguard, while being strong Offensively as well.

  • The Ginyu Force additions made the Team much more versatile, both in Battle and Bench wise.

     

Discussion:

The Frieza Force Team has been power crept to the point of oblivion, only to become playable again with the release of SP Golden Frieza GRN. Now that the Ginyu Force has landed on Namek as well, and that Frieza has reached his 100% Form, this Team has enough workforce to face the Meta without fear.

Tier 1

What makes a Team 'Tier 1'?

Compared to S Tier Teams, the ones listed here have more matchup problems but they can still compete with the Meta pretty well, as they have very powerful Fighters and solid Win Conditions.

Why this Tier?

  • God Ki’s impressive roster brought the Tag from irrelevance to dominance alongside Fusion Warrior during the 1 Year Anniversary with a strategy reminiscent of Holy Trinity with EX Whis RED providing similar support to that of SP SSJ Bardock BLU for his Team.

  • The addition of SP SSB Goku YEL gave God Ki another Yellow option if not for the sake of a variety of safe options during Team Preview.

     

     

Discussion:

The working core of God Ki is the Super Saiyan Blue Brothers, SP SSB Goku BLU and SP SSB Vegeta PUR with a rotating third member depending on the matchup. While this provides the benefits of specific Team synergy and also Color variance, God Ki still lacks key Color options for this tactic to really take off.

Why this Tier?

  • The Tag can benefit from the presence of some of the strongest Fighters in the Meta.

  • The addition of EX LSSJ Broly YEL is a breath of fresh air, since he makes the Team more diverse.

Discussion:

Super Saiyan is still great Offensively and its Synergy is quite good, however it doesn’t have many Team options, thus it’s a quite predictable Team.

Tier 2

What makes a Team 'Tier 2'?

Solid Teams that have the means to compete even against higher tier Teams, however they require more expertise compared to those to perform well.

Why this Tier?

  • EX Nail PUR is a good addition and brings depth to a quite unimpressive Tag prior to his arrival.

  • Regeneration can disrupt the Enemy’s rhythm through oppressive Extra Moves and strong Offensive Abilities.

Discussion:

Regeneration has fallen off from top Tiers because its Defense isn’t much of a factor in the current Meta. However, they’re still decent thanks to their Offensive Fighters that can control the rhythm of a Match.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

SP Hit YEL was made for this Build, and with SP FF FP Frieza YEL always being ready to protect him, his fragility is not that big of a problem as it would normally be. However, this Team is already weaker compared to weeks ago, due to multiple Meta Shifts that have made YYB easier to counter.

Why This Tier?

  • The goofy gaggle of multi-colored Ginyu goons at first doesn’t appear to be able to keep pace with more serious Teams. Frieza’s top men have tricks up their hypothetical sleeves though, namely fantastic Synergy and Equip options that boost their EX level stats up to the level of Sparking. 

  • Capable of reliably using both Offenses while also carrying Support options like EX Guldo GRN’s Heavy Immoblize or EX Captain Ginyu PURs switch prevention makes this Team quite unpredictable.

Discussion:

This Team’s fantastic Z-Abilities are a double-edged sword. Every member Buffs Frieza Force -- which keeps Team options open --but also keeps Frieza’s elite force from ever pulling ahead of the entire army. Unless specific and unprecedented support arrives for Ginyu Force, they will always be just a subsection of the more established Frieza Force. They’ve gone up to Tier 1 because it’s now possible to upgrade them further than 3*

Why This Tier?

  • The release of SP Teen Trunks PUR keeps that momentum going with his fantastic Support and Damage output. 

  • Pure rage translates to overwhelming Strike potential -- being the sole reason this Team will see play -- which is respectable in its own right as this Team fairs quite well on that Damage potential alone, forgoing the Defensive, Healing, and Control options that other Teams enjoy.

Discussion:

Still limited in Synergy and Team options, Vegeta Family still seems to keep pace with other top Teams with it’s overwhelming and consistent Strike Damage. SP Vegeta BLU and SP Teen Trunks PUR form a devastating Core capable of the highest consistent Strike Damage.

Tier 3

What makes a Team 'Tier 3'?

Teams that only have one solid Fighter, a weak Supporting cast, or bad matchups in PVP as a whole.

Why this Tier?

  • Future has two different Builds, but neither versatile.

  • The recent USTS #14 additions made the Team much more diverse, to the point it now has two very competitive Team Builds.

Discussion:

 This Tag now has two possible Builds: a highly Offensive Future - Hybrid Saiyan Team, or a more Defensive Team revolving around SP Goku Black   PUR.  However, neither is particularly relevant.

Why This Tier?

  • SP Angry Goku BLU and SP FF FP Frieza YEL make an incredible combo

  • This Build’s dependence to hardly reachable Z-Abilities makes it improbable.

Discussion:

Frieza Saga at full potential would arguably be a S Tier Team. The overwhelming presence of SP Angry Goku BLU and SP FF FP Frieza YEL, coupled with the Support offered by either EX Krillin PUR or EX Nail PUR and the multiple incredible Z-Abilities, would make this Build very competitive in PVP. The fact that the Synergy of this Team is hidden behind a paywall hugely penalizes its placement.

Why this Tier?

  • Red Color-Counter is a powerful Team with the Healing utility of SP Metal Coora RED This Team's top Fighters are better fits on other Teams.

  • This Team's top Fighters are better fits on other Teams.

Discussion:

Red Color-Counter is home to many powerful Fighters including SP Golden Frieza GRN and SP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED, but suffers the common flaw of Color-Counter Teams in that its most powerful Fighters were made to Synergize with other Teams.

Why this Tier?

Discussion:

Powerful Fighters like SP SSB Vegeta PUR, SP Super Vegito PUR, and an association to the most powerful Saiyan Teams keeps this Team afloat. However, this is the least powerful color counter at the moment due to the current state of the Meta.

Why this Tier?

  • This color has a powerful Build, and thanks to SP FF FP Frieza YEL, it can hold his own even against Teams having powerful Purple Fighters

  • Green Color-Counter has an advantage over Blue Fighters, which is a popular color in PVP at the moment.

Discussion:

Green Color-Counter brings solid Fighters to the field. It works as a Frieza Force variant, minus the healing and the color versatility that is always helpful.

Tier 4

Why This Tier?

  • The combination of SP Bunny Bulma GRN and SP Youth Bulma BLU makes this Team’s Damage output unexpectedly dangerous

  • All Core Fighters have awful durability.

Discussion:

Dragon Ball Saga is more of a funny Team concept rather than a seriously competitive Build. While the deceptive Offensive power of this Team could be Effective in skilled hands, the fact that all of its Fighters almost get defeated in one combo is a decisive flaw that makes it bad at high levels.

  • Another Tag centered around a particular era of the anime, GT is only just able to make a full Team.
  • The lack of Teamwork, both in strategy and color distribution relegates this Team to Color Counter variants.

 

The future of the GT Tag is still uncertain as the Tag is still forming a strategy to build around. Currently, the Tag is capable of a Top Team comprised of two Color Counter Teams. This provides a unique edge in the prediction game, but both variants have glaring flaws that keeps this Team out of higher tiers.
