True Brawler, Big Bang Knuckle Turbo
Third this week is True Brawler, Big Bang Knuckle Turbo. You need a Big Bang Knuckle VG in order to work, but once you have him, as an ACT skill, Counterblast 1, Soulblast 1 and G Persona Blast to give himself 5k for every other Big Bang Knuckle Turbo face-up in your G-Zone, then for every heart he has, he can attack 3 units at once.
Obviously meant to be in Legion first so that you get two hearts, so you can boardwipe with this. Even alone though he functions like a meaty Big Bang Knuckle Dragon by attacking 3 units (as in the entire front row, although you can also attack a booster if there's a Grade 3 not doing anything on your opponent's field).
Only problem is that he's a tad slow. That, and the number of people using him wrong is rather disquieting. Requiring that you Legion first you miss out on being able to unleash Triple Drive and a potential skill for the turn, and in his most optimal scenario you need to have another Big Bang Knuckle (if you intend to use Buster first, anyway). Jumping to Legion as soon as possible should not be the be-all end-all strategy of the deck; just having a cheap Big Bang Knuckle twice in one go should be enough, and other options such as Zorras and Conquest Dragon exist, so don't feel you are obliged to be slow just to get several kills at once, because you'd be surprised what a few EARLY kills add up to.
Better than the last two by a big margin but subject to being a newb trap. Use with caution.

Oh, hey, Big Bang Knuckle Buster, when did you get so big?!  Seriously...
Anyway, today's card is one that everyone was freaking out about on the forums the instant we saw it.  CB1, SB1 and flip any G-unit up to be able to attack an opponent's field if in Legion?  Sheesh!  Scary thought was scary!
After the freaking out died off and people started play-testing it, they found that trying to go Legion and then Stride is way too slow for this deck and you really don't need that extra field wipe with the deck anyway.
And, really, who doesn't like this for Brawling anyway?
Stride, smash face, Legion, smash more face, haven't won yet?  Stride again and smash all of the face!
Obviously a staple in Big Bang decks.
