The ultimate grade 4 normal unit has transcended into an almighty G-unit! Transcendence Divine Dragon, Nouvelle Vague L’Express is an exclusive card in Legend Deck Kai. It is the evolution of Transcendence Dragon, Dragonic Nouvelle Vague. It is the first grade four unit to be the next evolution of a previous grade 4 normal unit.  Transcendence Divine Dragon, Nouvelle Vague L’Express's abilities are based on the original Nouvelle's skills.

Transcendence Divine Dragon, Nouvelle Vague L’Express has one of the intense skills in vanguard. The first part of the skill prevents your opponent from guarding with guard one units. Basically your opponent cannot negate the attack by shielding the vanguard with a perfect guard. The opponent must surrender many cards from his or her hand to block the attack. Your opponent can still guard with grade 0 cards and grade 2 cards from his or her hand. This skill can lead you to victory if your opponent is low on cards.

Furthermore, Nouvelle's skill negates trigger effects if you opponent has five or more damage. Heal triggers will not save opponents from defeat! Your opponent will either block the attack or lose the match. The opposing vanguard cannot gain any power from triggers to build its defense for your next attacks. The skill is one of the most dangerous skills near the end of a game.

Finally, Nouvelle's skills are not nearly as broken as it would be without the new defensive cards. G-Guardians can help block the attack. You are going to need at least two extra triggers to help block the attack. Grade 2 units can also be called to the guardian zone to shield the vanguard. This is still devastating as your hand's size greatly decreases to stop one attack.

Overall, Transcendence Divine Dragon, Nouvelle Vague L’Express is one the best G-units to play in the late game. Every Kagero deck should play a complete set of  Transcendence Divine Dragon, Nouvelle Vague L’Express. It is one of the best cards in Kai's Legend Deck. The pressure from this attack is just too good to pass up. It will either win the game or drain your opponent's resources. This card would be nearly unstoppable if G-Guardians did not exist. Opponents will either survive or die under Transcendence Divine Dragon, Nouvelle Vague L’Express's flames!
