Super Cosmic Hero, X-carivou
Dimension Police's second G Guardian. When used to defend, if the attacking unit's power is 30k+ he gains 10k shield. Then, you can discard one card from your hand to give your vanguard 4k power until end of turn.
Rather unfortunate that this G Guardian doesn't get to do anything, not even the discard power-up if the unit's swinging for less than 30k, as the first condition is required for the second, so basically, you're using this to block a G Unit swinging with a booster for 31k as a substitute to Perfect Guards.
Recapping: ideally you're starting off with a 25k shield total. You then make the vanguard 4k+ stronger until end of turn at the cost of a card in the hand, averaging 5k shield. Short term, not a good investment since people tend to work with 31k columns for the vanguard and an extra 4k to make a 30k guardian wouldn't have changed shield value for the attack either way.
But, for the rest of the turn, your vanguard is 15k: strong enough to hold off 18k columns for only 5k shield.
Pretty situational which is unfortunate, but for want of anything better, you may as well pick some up for your DP deck.

One of the most efficient G-Guards out right now. You reach Scryew levels of defense just because your opponent's Grade 4 (or any of Ahsha.dek's rearguard columns) swung for 30k or higher. But the really cute thing is ditching a card to give your vanguard slighty more potent Crossride-esque defense for the rest of the turn.

Don't just blindly discard for the 4k buff to the Vanguard though. Pay attention to your opponent's colums, and do math to see if that extra 4k means using 5k less shield from your hand for each of their remaining attacks. It'll come in handy against attacks that churn out 4-and 5+ attacks though. coughVictorcough.
