Super Cosmic Hero, X-Gallop
Feel that manly spirit. X-Gallop, like Black Seraph, is a GB2 skill: upon attacking the Vanguard, if the power is 35k or greater, Counterblast 1 and flip a G Zone card face-up to give him +1 Drive Check until end of the battle. Then if his power is 40k or greater, the front row rear-guards gains 4k for every face-up X-Gallop in the G Zone until end of turn.
35k? Easy enough as long as Grandgallop exists and you have a 5k booster. 40k requires you chain several Power increase skills together, but since a lot of the Burst cards and the older stuff in the Cosmic Roar pack are pretty useful either way, it's easy enough to fulfill in its own deck.
For all your trouble, you basically have a hard +1 for CB1 plus a chance of soft advantage through another trigger. For the best output on the first Stride, you'd have to open with X-Tiger and flip this for 8k to your front row (meaning 18k+ to force more guard out the opponent). So all in all, I guess it's more efficient than Takemikazuchi or something, but a Perfect Guard and a sufficient number of G Guardians will probably nerf this by a bit.
But as long as Laurel exists this can be as hypothetically shit as it wants, it's still pressure either way.

[Super Cosmic Hero, X-Gallop]

Cosmic Heroes really needed a boost to make them not completely overshadowed by Dimensional Robos, or simply tech options in Sin Buster. What they got is straight-up 4 drive checks, without the inherent minus designed into every stride restander. It's not the flashiest, but:

A) Your opponent absolutely HAS to see at least two of their PGs to survive you. If they don't, then they'll have to rely on their G-Guards to guard, and they'll be clenching their buttholes even if they give you a 4-to-pass. (If you're a DP player, you're most likely balsy as hell and are just gonna bet al your triggers on then vanguard anyway.) I don't even need to mention how Laurel becomes the most annoying Grade 1 now.

B) Cosmic Heroes are a more rearguard-reliant deck, due to X-Gallop also handing power to the rearguards so they can do some actual work, unlike other Dimensional Police decks who just call a board so that Laurel has things to rest. On the plus side, your opponent can't just PG your vanguard and shrug off the rearguards easily. And you have a Resist Grade 2 now. On the other hand, Link Joker gets more annoying, cause you do need the liberty to call Cosmic Heroes and pass around buffs.

You can also stride into X-gallop more than two times, since he's not a persona flip. But the 4k stacks to the rearguards only come from the amount of X-Gallop face-up in the G-Zone. Plan out how to make the 4k stacks to the rearguards force more guard from the opponent, and you'll be fine.
