Ultra Instinct Shaggy is an Ultra Instinct Remix featuring the character Shaggy from Scooby-Doo undergoing the "ultra instinct" transformation of Goku from Dragon Ball Super. After an Ultra Instinct Remix featuring Shaggy grew popular, the character developed a fandom online.


On October 12th, 2017, YouTuber Midya posted an Ultra Instinct Remix featuring Shaggy fighting a gang of thugs from the 2011 film Scooby-Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur, featuring the song “Ultimate Battle” from the Dragon Ball Super soundtrack playing in the background. The video has since been deleted, but was reuploaded by YouTuber RoastedCurry in January 2019 (shown below).
