Nova Grappler "Hero" support

From the June issue of Monthly Bushiroad magazine.

All of these units focus on having units with the "Hero" race in play, and all of them are dual-race. Note that the Extra Muscular promotional card is also a "Hero" unit. These primarily consist of Miwa's cards from the manga, and represent an alternative play style to Kamui's Asura Kaiser-Raizer deck.

Miss Splendor
AUTO [Vanguard/Rearguard Circles]: During the battle in which your Hero attacks, your opponent cannot intercept, and if the number of your rearguards is greater than your opponent's, the attacking unit gets Power +3000.
No Imaginary Gift.
Race is Alien/Hero.
This is Miwa's key grade 3 early in the manga; originally the intercept blocking only applied to Miss Splendor herself, and there was no power gain effect.

Miss Splendor is a Single Rare in V-BT01: UNITE! TEAM Q4.

Battle Door Fighter
ACT [Vanguard Circle]: Once per turn: [Cost: Counterblast 1, soulblast 1] Choose 1 of your units, until end of turn during the battle when that unit attacks, when your opponent would call guardians from their hand, if they do not call 2 or more guardians, they cannot call.
AUTO [Vanguard/Rearguard Circles]: When it attacks a vanguard, if the number of your rearguards is 3 or greater, this unit gets Power +5000 until the end of that battle.
Imaginary Gift: Accel
Race is Human/Hero.
The Question & Answer section of Monthly Bushiroad states that in order to call a perfect guard against the unit with Battle Door's effect on it, you must call another card in addition to the perfect guard. Discarding for the perfect guard does not count as calling 2 or more guardians.

Battle Door Fighter is a Common in V-BT01: UNITE! TEAM Q4.

Boomerang Thrower
AUTO [Rearguard Circle]: When placed, if there are 1 or less face-up cards in your damage zone, Countercharge 1.
AUTO [Rearguard Circle]: When placed, if you have 1 or less cards in your soul, Soulcharge 1.
Race is Human/Hero.
The original Boomerang Thrower was one of Miwa's grade 2s, and allowed him to attack an opponent's back row unit when he rode it.

Cup Bowler
CONT [Vanguard/Rearguard Circle]: During your turn, if you have another <<Hero>> unit, this unit gets Power +5000.
Race is Human/Hero.
Another of Miwa's grade 2s from the manga, its effect was never shown in the story, but previously had a promo version of it printed that gained power whenever a Nova Grappler was rested.

Cup Bowler is a Common in V-BT01: UNITE! TEAM Q4.

Rocket Hammer Man
AUTO [Rearguard Circle]: When this unit boosts a Hero, by paying [Cost: Soulblast 1], this unit gets Power +5000 until end of turn.
Race is Human/Hero.

Rocket Hammerman is a Common in V-BT01: UNITE! TEAM Q4.

Tap the Hyper
AUTO: When you ride, draw 1 card.
Race is Human/Hero.
