Here, we have two antagonistic forces from Dragon Ball that ended up going dramatically different directions. Android 17 was introduced as one of the most cold-blooded villains in the franchise's history. It took Trunks traveling back in time (and, in reality, creating a splinter timeline) to prepare the Z-Fighters to take on the Androids. Instead of sticking with his villainous ways, though, Android 17 reformed and dedicated his life to protecting endangered creatures. He ended up "turning the tide," as the card says, during the Tournament of Power in Dragon Ball Super. 

Then, there's Paragus. He is depicted differently in the non-canon original Z- era Broly movies and the canon Dragon Ball Super: Broly film, but both show this Saiyan as vindictive and cruel. Perhaps he was made that way due to his circumstances, though it's hard to empathize with him in the new Broly film when he uses his son, who in this reimagining is a good-hearted Saiyan, as a weapon.

The Dragon Ball Super Card Game 2021 Anniversary Box is now available. Stay tuned for openings and product reviews of this collection.
