Tag Characters are units where two characters battle as one, switching in for each other.
Tags and Stats, as well as health, Buff Effects, Abnormal Conditions and other effects during battle are shared by both characters.
If an ability that targets certain characters has been activated by allies or enemies during battle, it will target a Tag Character unit if one of the characters satisfies the conditions. However, the effect will only be active while the character that satisfies these conditions is being controlled.
E.g., when an ability that targets "Character: Goku" is active and a Tag Character unit containing "Character: Goku" is being targeted, the effect will not be active while a character other than "Character: Goku" is being controlled. It will only activate when "Character: Goku" is being controlled.
*Certain abilities will affect both characters.
Also, if any allies or enemies have abilities that reference how many of a certain character there are or whether certain characters are in either party, only the character that is currently active will be referenced. The character who's not active will have no effect on these abilities.
E.g., if an ally has an ability that activates if a "Tag: Saiyan" is in the party, if a Tag Character's currently active character is not "Tag: Saiyan", they will not cause the ability to activate.
If a Tag Character unit is K.O.'ed, both characters will count as defeated.
E.g., if a Tag Character unit with a "Character: Goku" and a "Character: Vegeta" is defeated, abilities that require a "Character: Goku" to be defeated and abilities that require a "Character: Vegeta" to be defeated will both activate.
*The total number of defeated characters is only counted as one.
*If both characters' Episodes overlap, they will be counted as one.
Z Abilities (or Zenkai Abilities) and Equipment conditions will apply to both characters.
E.g., if a Tag Character unit containing "Character: Goku" and "Character: Vegeta" is targeted by a Z Ability that affects "Goku" or "Vegeta", both will receive the effects.
In addition, if any party members are using Equipment that references the Character or Episode of your battle members, both characters' Characters and Episodes will be taken into account.
*If both characters' Characters or Episodes overlap, they will be counted as one.
*For effects that activate according to actions in battle, such as "when this character enters the battlefield, if there is a 'Character: Goku' battle member in the party", only the character that is currently active can cause them to activate.
Abilities that reference the number of battle members that are a certain character or have a certain Tag will only count a Tag Character unit as a single character.
E.g., if both Tag Characters are "Tag: Saiyan", they will only count as one character for abilities with effects that change according to the number of allied "Tag: Saiyan".
*Equipment abilities will also count Tag Character units as a single character.
