Mr. Satan (or Hercule if you would prefer) is one of the biggest figureheads in Dragon Ball's entire franchise run, and now the "world champion" has come to life through some oddly realistic yet awesome cosplay! Ever since he was first introduced to the series as the new World Martial Arts Tournament champion who had won in the years since Goku and the others last bothered with it, he's been a pretty notable member of the franchise as he's ended up helping Goku and the others through some very tough fights and opponents in the later sagas of the series.
Mr. Satan has been even more important than fans might have expected over the years because while he was first introduced as a pretty big joke, he's since become a big money provider, Majin Buu's best friend, and more over the years. Although he's taken more of a backseat from his time as a figurehead during the events of Dragon Ball Super, he's definitely missed each time. Now Mr. Satan has come to life fully thanks to some awesomely realistic cosplay from artist @itlookslikekilled on Instagram! Check it out below:
It was a shame he wasn't involved during the Earth based events of Dragon Ball Super's latest movie, however, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. Releasing around theaters throughout the world earlier this Summer to become not only one of the most successful films in the franchise, but one of the most successful anime film releases ever, the movie really could have used a fun spot from Mr. Satan to shake things up! The movie was teased as such:
"The Red Ribbon Army was once destroyed by Son Goku. Individuals, who carry on its spirit, have created the ultimate Androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. These two Androids call themselves "Super Heroes". They start attacking Piccolo and Gohan…What is the New Red Ribbon Army's objective? In the face of approaching danger, it is time to awaken, Super Hero!"
