Heroes of Super Dragon Ball offered fans of the Akira Toriyama Shonen series indispensable adventures for Goku, Vegeta, Trunks and other Z-fighters. The anime franchise of the main series is on break, but there are a number of things it has to work on if it wants to achieve the same level of quality. In a modern scenario dedicated to the devilish scientist Fuu, who tries to recreate the universe, Z-Fighters reach their limits, also with the help of the Time Patrol, who offers them indispensable help.

Each episode of Super Dragon Ball Heroes usually lasts between eight and ten minutes, and although this is not necessarily a weak point, it is probably the case in this split. For example, Adult Swim showed us that we can make a series that can tell stories in a short time, but Dragon Ball doesn’t seem to have the same strength when it comes to heroes. Perhaps the solution is to publish an episode every few months, with a standard length of twenty-two minutes.
Everything goes too fast

Surprisingly, this criticism is completely independent of the total duration of the episodes themselves, as episodes sometimes end at a certain point and start a completely new fight, without explaining how the fight started or how the characters went from point A to point B. Dragonball heroes try to tell a lot of stories in the short time available to them, but they don’t have the ability to open the events the public needs. Eventually you have to go back to the drawing board and think about how best to tell your story without feeling like a piece of broken paper.
It should only focus on the surveillance patrol.
Since the series decided to focus not only on Xeno Versa’s Patrol of Time, but also on the protagonists of the true continuity of the franchise, we see severely missed opportunities in the parallel process when it comes to the stories they can tell. If we had only followed the versions of Goku and Vegeta Super Saiyan 4, it wouldn’t have been a safety trap to prevent their characters from dying or being changed forever. The Z Warriors just add too many characters to this section if they can just shed some light on the Time Patrol and touch their characters more.
Hearts. Eww. Poor Sayan. They’re all terrible villains. Don’t get me wrong, Fuu began to wonder if he was more of a behind-the-scenes threat than a physical one, but that changed in the later episodes when it turned out that he was like Cell, a combination of the DNA of several Dragonball heroes and villains, and it’s annoying. The hearts had an interesting modus operandi to try to gain power to destroy the god Zeno, but we know almost nothing about him as a figure, and that makes him forget. Don’t start telling us about the madness of Cumber du Mal Sayan, who didn’t even understand the character himself, let alone his origins.
Don’t get me wrong, service to the fans is one of the strong points of the series. He gives us concepts like the return of Super Sayan 4 and tree trunks reaching the power of Super Sayan God, but he doesn’t give us enough time to enjoy these events. For example, one of the main selling points of the spin-off series was the fierce battle between Super Saiyan 4 Goku and his Super Saiyan Blue, and although this is true, it took place in about 60 seconds and could easily have been the subject of the whole episode. The problem is not the fan support itself, but how the Super Dragon Ball Heroes handle it.
