I don't know if it's just me, but this one is funny as hell. The Dragon Ball Super anime took the time to illustrate the nuance of Gowasu's situation. He had put his hope in his pupil, Zamasu, who he believed that he could mold into a wise and empathetic Kai. He saw that the Zamasu had questions but felt that those were natural for a deity. While he failed to realize how dark Zamasu's soul had become and how his questions had long since morphed into vicious zealotry, it always felt like there was nuance in his situation. Hope was his downfall, which made his failure to salvage and then stop Zamasu all the more tragic.

Bandai's take? "Gowasu, the Careless"! Whoever wrote the title for this card watched and/or read the Future Trunks Saga and thought, "You know what? To hell with this guy."
