Not to be confused with the Cardfight!! Vanguard anime, the video game, or the Vanguard book series about a US-based superhero team of that name authored by Percival Constantine.


Vanguard contains examples of:

  • Annoying Arrows: Subverted with extreme prejudice in the case of X-bow. Her arrows are durable enough to pierce some of the toughest meta-humans.
  • Anyone Can Die: Played about as straight as you can get.
  • Body Surf: Godiva's power. she can also see through the surfed body as well as move it. comes in handy against the more invulnerable foes.
  • Hand Blast: Spitfire's main combat ability. strong enough to strip the skin off of an AlphaOne metahuman's face.
  • Neck Snap: happens to The Prime Minister in order to make a statement.
