Is this unit good?

Rating: S

Naught but Rampage - SSJ3 Gotenks, the 120% leader for the Super PHY element is an amazing unit that, other than his own, can fit on four different top-tier teams: "Hybrid Saiyans", "Majin Buu Saga", "Fusion" and "SSJ3". If you don't already have this unit and need to decide how to spend your Purple Dragon Stone, SSJ3 Gotenks is possibly your best choice. SSJ3 Gotenks is one of the hardest hitters in the game with a minor defensive liability that is usually compensated by being paired with a lot of tanky units or overall tends to be helpful instead of hindering the team.

Gotenks S2

Strategy and Tips


In every team he fits in SSJ3, Gotenks is one of the best options and acts mainly as an offensive unit.

  • "Hybrid Saiyans"
    On this team SSJ3 Gotenks is an off-rotation unit. Being paired with units that like to take most of the orbs on the board is not big problem since SSJ3 Gotenks' strongest attack does not require a full Ki meter. A higher boost to his DEF from the Leader Skill can partially make up for his defensive liability, but any enemy that wants to hit has to go through the whole rotation before being able to touch him, on a team that outputs on average enough damage per turn to one shot almost any Dokkan Event.
  • "Majin Buu Saga"
    With the introduction of SS Goku & SS Vegeta SSJ3 Gotenks has been kicked off rotation, but he is still on the optimal version without a doubt. This team provides the same boost as "Hybrid Saiyans", both "Fused Fighters" and "Over in a Flash" can help out the rest of team while not making SSJ3 Gotenks go overboard with his Ki.
  • "Fusion"
    A 170% boost on top of its already crazy damage output makes SSJ3 Gotenks a monster. On the previous version of the team SSJ3 Gotenks started already at 11-12 Ki, whereas now it's actually possible to get his 11 Ki due to the lack of "Fused Fighters" and "Over in a Flash" of SS Goku (Angel) & SS Vegeta (Angel). SSJ3 Gotenks is off rotation on this team too to make the newly added LR more consistent.
  • "SSJ3"
    "SSJ3" is the team on which Gotenks can potentially output the most damage: his minor defensive liability can help activate SSJ3 Bardock's Passive and boost his ATK by and additional 40% and here it's actually pretty easy to get his strongest attack off. Most units share "Over in a Flash", but none of the optimal options have "Fused Fighters" meaning SSJ3 Gotenks will start at 9 Ki, only needing exactly 2 to unleash the "Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball".

Super Attack

SSJ3 Gotenks has three Super Attacks: the first in order of damage is the 9-10 Ki one that has no additional effect aside from lowering the enemy's DEF, which is not particularly relevant most of the times, the second one is the 12 Ki one, that raises Gotenks ATK by 50% for 1 turn, andthe strongest is the 11 Ki one that increases SSJ3 Gotenks' ATK by 100% for a turn. Excluding SSJ3 Broly that has a "nuker" Passive, SSJ3 Gotenks is the strongest leader of his generation with his 11 Ki Super.

Leader Skill

SS3 Gotenks is the 120% Super PHY leader, an element stacked with great units.

Passive Skill

SS3 Gotenks’ Passive gives his ATK an initial 120% boost, which is already a lot, and then adds a 60% for 7 turn at the cost of 30% DEF. Since SS3 Gotenks’ natural DEF is not that low, he is not as much of a glass cannon as you may think.

Link Skill

Aside from "Super Saiyan", "Fierce Battle" are prominent links on any team SSJ3 Gotenks is on, "Over in a Flash" and "Fused Fighters" are great for "Fusion" and "Majin Buu Saga".

Best Unit to Pair With

Devastating Fusion Power Super Saiyan Gotenks
Devastating Fusion Power Super Saiyan Gotenks
SS Gotenks is one of the best partners for this unit, activating "Super Saiyan", "Fierce Battle" and "The Innocents", giving him 2 Ki with "Fused Fighters" and sealing the enemy's Super Attack to partially make up for Gotenks' minor defensive liability. When choosing a good partner for SS3 Gotenks you have to keep in mind that you don't want to give him too much Ki to be able to get his 11 Ki Super Attack more consistently and SS Gotenks can fit that role since, unlike Outshining Darkness - Super Gogeta and Peerless Gleam - SS4 Gogeta, he does not give him an automatic 12 Ki.
Infinite Radiance Super Vegito
Infinite Radiance Super Vegito
Super Vegito, just like SS Gotenks, does not give SS3 Gotenks too much Ki with his links (2 with "Fuse FIghters") and can also greatly mitigate the damage taken on the rotation thanks to his Passive. The ATK links shared are just "Super Saiyan" and "Fierce Battle", but after Super Vegito's Super Attack, SS3 Gotenks will get an additional 30% ATK boost for a total of 55%.
Talent%27s in the Blood Pan (GT)
Talent%27s in the Blood Pan (GT)
Pan (GT) is a great support unit that can give SS3 Gotenks between her links and her Passive a total of 55% ATK and 30% DEF, completely making up for the DEF debuff from SS3 Gotenks' Passive. Pan (GT) is an off-rotation support unit that does not give SS3 Gotenks any additional Ki, which can be conducive to getting the strongest attack off.
[Saiyans Proof of Power] SS3 Bardock
[Saiyans Proof of Power] SS3 Bardock
SS3 Bardock can increase SS3 Gotenks' ATK up to 65% depending on whether or not his Passive is active. Since SS3 Gotenks on "SS3" is an off-rotation unit and Bardock gives him only 3 Ki with "Over in a Flash", you would need only 2 Ki from the board to get the "Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball" with its 100% ATK boost off, possibly the most simple and likely scenario for that to happen.

Hidden Potential

The standard lv.15 Criticals and lv.11 Additionals is fine with this unit, but even a lv.3 Dodge is not a bad idea since SSJ3 Gotenks reduces his DEF by 30% at the start of the turn.

Additional RoutesHPATKDEF

Should I use Elder Kais/Grand Kais?

SSJ3 Gotenks does not have a farmable Super Attack, but being one of the best units in the game he is totally worth 9 Elder Kais/Grand Kais.
