Tsareena is a viable spinner in the metagame for its ability to threaten out common Stealth Rock users such as Rhyperior and Gigalith, along with having Knock Off to deal with spinblockers such as Chandelure and Doublade and punish common answers such as Noivern and Galarian Weezing. With U-Turn, Tsareena can act as a pivot against Galarian Weezing and Steel-types like Escavalier that would normally switch into it. High Jump Kick is another option to hit Pokemon such as Cobalion, Incineroar, and Lucario. Heavy-Duty Boots allows Tsareena to avoid damage from entry hazards, greatly improving its role as a Rapid Spin user. Lum Berry is an alternate item to better pivot into Pokemon such as Milotic, Rotom-W, and Gigalith by avoiding status aliments from them. Queenly Majesty assists Tsareena against priority users such as Sirfetch'd and Golisopod. An Adamant nature allows Tsareena to have as much power as possible.
Steel-types such as Cobalion and Escavalier are major issues for Tsareena, especially if it is not using High Jump Kick. Partners such as Chandelure and Noivern can help to pressure these, and they appreciate Tsareena pressuring Water-types for them. Both can also help check Roserade for Tsareena. Chandelure also appreciates Tsareena bringing it in on Galarian Weezing and Escavalier, while Noivern can bring Tsareena in on Pokemon like Rhyperior, Gigalith, and Milotic with U-turn. Golisopod can help to check Cobalion and Lucario for Tsareena while providing Spikes support to chip Steel-types that annoy Tsareena. Rhyperior and Gigalith can provide Stealth Rock support and also check Noivern and Toxtricity for Tsareena. Gigalith can also check Chandelure reliably. Incineroar can check Pokemon such as Doublade and Chandelure, while bringing Tsareena in against Water-types, Rhyperior, and Gigalith. Heliolisk and Toxtricity both provide Tsareena with Volt Switch support and can switch into Water-types; Toxtricity can also check Galarian Weezing. Due to Tsareena struggling with switching into Scald, Heliolisk is an especially good partner. Steel-types can check Pokemon such as Roserade and Gardevoir that force Tsareena out due to its Speed tier. Escavalier can counter Roserade and check Gardevoir and Haxorus. Both also appreciate Tsareena checking Water-types that give them trouble. Water-types such as Milotic and Vaporeon can check Chandelure and Noivern. In exchange, Tsareena can check Rotom-W.
