Since the beginning of the Dragon Ball franchise, Goku has always been the main focus of the series. We have seen him stand up against and defeat many foes over the years which has resulted in some of the most epic moments in anime. With the Mythic Booster right around the corner for the DBS CG, we thought it would be fitting to celebrate Dragon Ball’s main protagonist by taking a look at the top reprints coming with this latest set.
The DBS CG Mythic Booster is the first of its kind for the TCG, which is made up of core card reprints with a whopping 63 unique alternate art designs to collect. The Mythic Booster is designed to allow newer players to catch up with collecting out of print deck staples as well as offer long time fans of the Dragon Ball Super CG fresh alternatives to their favourite cards.
Son Goku, Instincts Surpassed
Goku mastering his Ultra Instinct form has come synonymous with the Dragon Ball Super series, with many top chase cards based on this epic moment, such as ‘Son Goku, The Awakened Power’. The original’ Son Goku, Instincts Surpassed’ card came with the Series 9 Pre-release Dash Pack that was released in February 2020. The artwork in this card is seriously epic, showing an expression on Goku’s face that nobody wants to be on the wrong end of. This artwork of this card also supports the conspiracy that Goku’s pants are indestructible.
SS4 Son Goku, Beyond All Limits
Time and time again, Goku smashes through his limits to pull off the seemingly impossible. In this reprint of ‘SS4 Son Goku, Beyond All Limits’, we see Son Goku Xeno digging deep in an attempt to topple his opponent. In play, this card has a nice recycling ability, letting you save a Battle Card from the Warp.
Dragon Ball buffs may recall that it was Master Roshi, disguised as Jackie Chun, who first performed the Afterimage Technique. Soon after, Goku adopts the move as his own. In the original version of this card, we saw Goku dodging an attack, while this time around we see him using it as a more offensive move, getting a jump on his opponent.
SSB Kaio-Ken Son Goku, Concentrated Destruction
Seeing the return of the Kaio-Ken was an epic moment for fans of the Dragon Ball Super anime series. In this new artwork for ‘SSB Kaio-Ken Son Goku, Concentrated Destruction’, Goku is seen charging his 10x God Kamehameha, which he then uses again Hit. The abilities of this card are very fitting, as it can KO all cards with 20000 power or less, as well as decrease a Battle Card by -25000 if you spend 2 red energy and send this card to the drop.
Ultimate Form Son Goku
Although ‘Son Goku, The Awakened Power’ has grown incredibly popular as the most sought after DBS CG card pulled from a set, the new artwork for ‘Ultimate Form Son Goku’ is personally my favourite artwork of Goku’s Ultra Instinct form. The foiling around the energy blasts, as well as on the card name and values, make this yellow card look incredible.
SS3 Son Goku, the Last Straw
Goku has had an interesting history – starting his adventure out as a young boy before growing to have two children. Well, following one of Pilaf’s schemes during Dragon Ball: GT, Goku was reverted back to a child. Eventually, he managed to turn Super Saiyan 3 again, which resulted in a very peculiar sight for Dragon Ball fans. In play, this card is a little risky, allowing you to take a card from your life in order to gain +10000 power and Double Strike for the rest of the turn.
This set was initially scheduled for a December release date, but following the delays, has been pushed back to January 2022 for many regions. To keep up to date with all future Mythic Booster updates, as well as all other TCG news, make sure you follow Ludkins Media on Instagram and Facebook.
