Okay, technically Goku isn’t a video game balloon, but he’s been in some great games. Also, I feel sorry for the people who wanted to see him on Smash Bros. so this is my slight reference to the Saiyan fighter. It’s not often that Goku gets praised in a major American spectacle, especially at an event that even Mario has never performed, so we’re going to highlight this small win for the anime’s most famous Himbo.
Goku did not appear in the prime of Dragon Ball Z, nor is he in his iconic Super Saiyan form. He first entered the parade in 2018 to promote the latest iteration of the series he is from. Dragonball super. Adorned with blue hair, this is of course Goku in his Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan form, also known as Super Saiyan Blue. Surprisingly, his appearance wasn’t just an isolated incident, he appeared at the Macy’s event in 2019 and is returning for 2021.
