In Xenoverse 2, Hero's Pose returns as a Super Skill used by Jaco which the Future Warrior can learn by completing Jaco's Initiation Test to train under him. It also appears as Emotes 43: "Elite Pose". According to Jaco, every Galactic Patrolman has their own unique version of the Hero's Pose and suggests the Future Warrior should think up their own pose, though they can only utilize Jaco's version.[4]

In Dragon Ball Legends, during the Tournament of Time Jaco teaches his Team Beerus teammate Shallot the Hero's Pose when Shallot seeks his help with coming up with a pose to impress the Ginyu Force whom Shallot got teamed up with working with Frieza to rescue his and Jaco's teammate Bulma from the Frieza Force faction controlled by Turles and Frost (who was masquerading as Frieza out of revenge for what happened during the Tournament of Power). Unfortunately the Ginyu Force consider the pose itself to be terrible to Shallot's utter embarrassment and anger at Jaco for teaching him the pose. However Captain Ginyu is impressed by Shallot's resolve despite considering the pose lacking and even offers to teach him a better one.


  • In some artwork related to Jaco the Galactic Patrolman (such as character profiles) various characters from that series can be seen striking the Hero's Pose such Tights and Omori.
  • Jaco, the Galactic King, Zuno, and Zuno's Attendants can be seen performing the pose in one of the endings for Dragon Ball Super.
    • In another part of the same ending, Tights can be seen performing the pose along with her parents.
  • In Dragon Ball Legends, the Hero's Pose is shown to not be up to the Ginyu Force's standards for Fighting Poses.
