Okay, so technically Goku is not a video game balloon, but he’s been to some great games. I also feel sorry for the people who wanted to see him in Smash Bros., so this is my little nod to the Saiyan fighter. It’s not often that Goku is hailed in a magnificent American spectacle, especially at an event in which even Mario has never performed, so we want to highlight this small victory for the anime’s most famous himbo.
Goku did not appear in the heyday Dragon Ball Z, nor is he in his iconic Super Saiyan form. His first time attending the parade was in 2018 to promote the latest iteration of the series he comes from, Dragon Ball Super. Adorned with blue hair, this is of course Goku in his Super Saiyan Good Super Saiyan form, also known as Super Saiyan Blue. Surprisingly, his performance was not just an isolated one when he performed at the Macy’s event in 2019 and returns to 2021.
