Future Trunks is the Saiyan and Human hybrid son of Vegeta and Bulma from the alternate futureBy the time Present Trunks was born, the timeline had been altered by Future Trunks' and Cell's trips to the past. Therefore, the two Trunks had completely different lives (as opposed to those who lived before the Time Machines arrived, they lived exactly the same lives as their counterparts until the point at which the two timelines diverge: three years before the androids arrived).

OverviewEdit

HistoryEdit

This is the first Trunks that is introduced in the Dragon Ball series. He wields a sword and wears a Capsule Corporation jacket. Trained by the alternate timeline's Gohan, Future Trunks travels through time to seek help from Goku to prevent the Red Ribbon Androids from ravaging the world, like they did in his dark future. Future Trunks is a loyal and uncompromising warrior, and can be slightly cocky at times. He inherited his mentor's do-or-die attitude, as well as his father's brash confidence (though he displayed less of it at different times; it was most on display in his fight against Frieza).

PersonalityEdit

[3]Future Trunks shown wearing a Saiyan battle outfit in the later stages of the Androids SagaAdded by DwightmyflightFuture Trunks, having never met his father, nor grown up under his influence, combined with the fact that he grew up in an apocalyptic world, is very cautious and serious (such as when he begged Vegeta not to challenge the Androids without Goku being present[1] or when he did not want Vegeta to trustParagus),[2] unlike his main timeline counterpart, who had a personality very similar to his father's.[3] Future Trunks feared the Androids, panicking at the introduction of Android 16, and before going back in time, was very respectful to everyone, especially his mother and his master. When he finally meets Vegetain the past, Future Trunks is seen to be constantly trying to impress him. This is often mixed with disgust and horror towards his father's uncaring attitude towards those around him, especially when Vegeta refused to save Bulma and baby Trunks when Dr. Gero blows up their capsule airplane, forcing Future Trunks to save his present counterpart and mother.

Because he comes from the future and believes he knows what is going to happen, Future Trunks is usually shown thinking that only some things will matter and others probably would not (although he is usually right in the long term). This is shown in, at first, his resistance to do anything unless Goku is present. Other things, such as his surprise that Piccolo's fusion would make a difference, also show this. As such, he is usually surprised at events (on a different layer than the fact that history was different from his recollection). He is even (though very rarely) shown to be cocky, such as when he became anUltra Super Saiyan, but when he loses his seeming "advantage" this cockiness dissolves instantly. Molded from his dark timeline, he is very serious and is a determined fighter like his father.

Unlike his father or alternate timeline self, Future Trunks is often shown to be very polite and well-mannered. This is clearly shown in the original version through his speech, as he is often heard using the polite form of Japanese phrases when addressing his allies. In an interview with Akira Toriyama, when asked by a fan what happened to Future Trunks and the Majin Buu of his timeline, he stated that he did not realize that the series was going to continue past the Cell Saga, and that it was supposed to be the final chapter in the Dragon Ball series. However, due to overwhelming demand from Japanese fans, he continued the series.[citation needed] What had happened to Future Trunks and the Majin Buu of his timeline is depicted in the PSP game Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road.

AppearanceEdit

[4]Future Trunks before he kills the Androids in his timelineAdded byDragonBallScreenshotsFuture Trunks is muscular, yet a bit taller then Goku (after his training in theHyperbolic Time Chamber) and more slender. He has blue eyes and straight, light purple hair, which he inherited from his mother. From his first appearance to the time he enters the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Future Trunks' hair is cut short, only reaching the middle of his ears. After his exit from the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, his hair is long, reaching his shoulders, due to a year of having to cut it himself. However, Bulma cuts it before his second year in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, and again after the Cell Games. Future Trunks gains his facial features and his light tan skin color from his paternal side.

Throughout Future Trunks' appearances, he is usually seen wearing golden boots, gray pants, a black tank-top, and an indigo Capsule Corporation jacket. He also wears clothing identical to his father's, a blue skin-tight jumpsuit, white gloves, white boots with yellow tips, and Battle Armor. Like most other Saiyan-Human hybrids in the series, he has never been seen with a tail.

Differences from Present TrunksEdit

Due to living in such a bleak and dangerous future, Future Trunks is much different than his present time counterpart. Due to a hostile and lonely life with nearly everyone dead, Trunks' best and only friend is Future Gohan, which is comparable to the friendship of Trunks and Goten. [5]Future Trunks with long hair, in Bojack UnboundAdded by Nimbus.69It is unknown how Future Trunks would react to meeting Trunks, however this occurs in the video games Dragon Ball Z: Shin BudokaiDragon Ball Z: Budokai 3Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors, and Dragon Ball: Raging Blast. In both Budokai 3 and Shin Budokai, Trunks states that it is "Just like having a brother", whereas in Legendary Super Warriors and Tenkaichi 2, he does not even realize it is his future self and the two have a sparring match. In Raging Blast, Future Trunks is disappointed that Trunks has become spoiled and arrogant in times of peace. However, he retracts his disdain for the boy after being surprised by the young Saiyan's strength after they battle, most notably at his ability to transform into a Super Saiyan at such a young age. They did meet in themanga and anime, however, when Trunks was still just a baby; once when Future Trunks rescued him and Bulma from Dr. Gero's attack, and once when Future Trunks came to Capsule Corporation before the Cell Games announcement. For a minute, Trunks incessantly pulled on Future Trunks' hair.

BiographyEdit

Future Trunks' timelineEditEdit

Main articles: Ghosts from Tomorrow and Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks

"Gohan, why'd you have to do it, why'd you have to leave me? It's not fair! Oh gosh no... what did they do to you Gohan? You were my best friend, you were everything to me... everything! This just isn't fair! Gohan, Gohan, GOHAN!!!"

[6]Future Trunks and Future Gohan prepare to fight the AndroidsAdded by BeadtmdcFuture Trunks was born in Age 766 and is from an alternate timeline, one in which the Earth is continually terrorized by the evil Future Android 17 and Future Android 18. By the time we are introduced to the pair of Androids, over three fourths of the world's population has been eliminated due to their spree of destruction. In this future, Future Gohan and Future Trunks are weaker versions of themselves without the training of the experienced Z Fighters later on.

In this timelineFuture Goku dies of a heart virus six months before the Androids arrive, leaving the Z Fighters without one of their greatest heroes. His fatherFuture Vegeta and all of the other Z Fighters (except Future Gohan) are killed, with the Androids easily outclassing them in power since they were both built to be more powerful than Future Goku. Over the course of the next thirteen years, Future Gohan becomes Future Trunks' mentor and trains him in everything he knows. Future Trunks is at age 14 at the time. He tries his best to teach Future Trunks how to become a Super Saiyan as well, necessary for him to compete against the Androids' might. However, with everyone already dead and having not yet felt a certain level of sadness and sorrow, Future Trunks simply cannot find the motivation to transform (in the manga, Future Trunks had already achieved the Super Saiyan form at this time). [7]Future Trunks finds the corpse of his mentor, GohanAdded by Jeangabin666In an amusement park named Super World, Future Gohan and teenage Future Trunks face the Future Androids in battle where Future Trunks, in his inexperience, is cornered by Future Android 18. Future Gohan is forced to sacrifice himself to save Future Trunks, losing his arm in the process which only further demoralizes Future Trunks and causes his confidence to fall. Future Trunks tries repeatedly to attain Super Saiyan during training but still struggles with it, unlike his alternate-timeline self who attains it at a much younger age and with relative ease. [8]Future Trunks finally transforms into a Super Saiyan after finding Gohan's dead bodyAdded by DiogoalvesLater in Age 780, the pair are drawn into battle against the Androids again, so Future Gohan knocks Future Trunks unconscious knowing that if he faces them again he will be killed. Future Gohan holds his own against the Androids at Pepper Town, being stronger than each individually (only in the anime; Gohan initially lost against a Future 17 who was using less than half his full strength, and even after the years of training with Future Trunks, he is effortlessly defeated by the foe and killed before Future Trunks awakens) but unable to compete with both of them and their infinite energy reserves. Future Gohan is defeated and killed, leaving Future Trunks to find his body lying in the rain. Overcome with anger and grief, Future Trunks finally transforms into a Super Saiyan (as said above, in the manga, he was able to transform already, but due to his inexperience was unable to even keep up with an armless Future Gohan in his normal state, until his training for the next three years) and spends the next few years training to avenge his fallen allies but despite all this, he struggles to defeat the Androids. [9]Future Trunks defeated by the androidsAdded by BeadtmdcAfter another close escape at Bridgetown inAge 783Future Bulma reveals her Time Machine to her son, which she hopes he will use to return to the past and save Goku, hopefully altering the future. In this future, Future Trunks did not know his father Future Vegeta at all, as he was only an infant at the time he was murdered by the Androids.

Time travelEdit

Main article: Trunks Saga

"These androids are ruthless, they delight in causing pain and chaos. Living on Earth in my time is like living in a nightmare... always running and hiding, looking for a way out."

[10]Future Trunks easily deflects an attack from a soldier in King Cold's armyAdded by BeadtmdcIn Age 784, Future Trunks travels back in time 20 years, in order to warn Goku about the android threat in the near future, as well as to deliver medication that will cure Goku of the heart virus that he is supposed to die from. However, upon arrival he is greeted by Frieza with his father King Cold. They had come to Earth in order to seek revenge upon Goku's loved ones, and to kill Goku himself. Future Trunks, then seventeen years old, did not look like much of a threat to Frieza, and he freely told him so. Future Trunks implies his ability to transform into a Super Saiyan, but Frieza, albeit initially shocked, laughs it off along with his father. Future Trunks, anticipating that Frieza does not believe him, proves it by transforming, to Frieza's horror. Frieza was then given three opportunities to kill Future Trunks, but the young Super Saiyan is able to block and dodge the attacks with ease, and he kills all the minions Frieza and his father had brought to Earth. [11]Future Trunks slices Mecha Frieza in half with his swordAdded by Jeangabin666Frustrated, Frieza fires a Supernova at Future Trunks. Future Trunks just catches the attack and tells Frieza that he must have "dropped it," after which Frieza detonates the blast with an energy wave (only in the anime, while in the manga Frieza never tried a planet-busting ki attack, and fired this blast immediately instead). Future Trunks then easily remains unscathed and performs what he calls the Burning Attack to have Frieza dodge the blast, which is followed up by his sword (Shining Sword Attack). [12]Future Trunks stops King Cold's attackAdded by BeadtmdcFrieza, cut in half, was completely destroyed by being hacked to bloody chunks and then blown to dust in an instant, and was soon followed by his arrogant father King Cold, who was killed by a God Breaker energy wave. Future Trunks offers the Z Fighters a drink from his cooler in a capsule, and waits for Goku to arrive. Future Trunks later finds out, to his chagrin, that he interfered with the timeline unnecessarily. Goku, although miles away in space, was prepared to step in using his Instant Transmission technique (just as he did in Future Trunks' original timeline) when Future Trunks showed up, and killed Frieza himself.

When Goku arrives, Future Trunks informs Goku of the future where the Androids arrive and kill all of the Z Fighters in a large battle, also telling Goku not to inform anyone about his parents. However, Piccolo's sensitive Namekian ears pick up the conversation, and as Goku forgot some details about Future Trunks' telling, Piccolo tells the Z Fighters of the future, inspiring the heroes to train their hardest for the next three years. However, inadvertently, Future Trunks' revelation of the future alters it slightly.

The Androids and CellEdit

Main articles: Androids Saga and Imperfect Cell Saga

"I agreed with my mother that I should travel back in time, but I had my own reasons for wanting to go. I had hoped that in the past, with Goku's help, I would find the androids had some weakness. That way I could go back to the future. And even though I still wouldn't be able to bring back all those already gone, I might be able to save the people who are left."

[13]Future Trunks finds Android 19's headAdded by BeadtmdcWhen the androids eventually appear and they face the Z Fighters, Goku had not contracted the heart disease six months prior like he was supposed to, instead he contracted it during the battle against Android 19. Before Goku could be killed, Vegeta saves him, telling Yamcha to take him home and cure him with his medication, and reveals his new Super Saiyan form, killing Android 19 with great ease when he uses his signature Big Bang Attack to reduce him to a smoldering head. Future Trunks returns to the past to find Android 19's detached head on the Southern Continent and Android 20, two androids he never saw in his timeline and realizes that this timeline is now branching off considerably from his own. When Android 20 (who is, Dr. Gero in reality) releases the real androids of his future, Android 17 and Android 18, they rebel and kill their creator before releasing the previously unknownAndroid 16. [14]Future Trunks attacking Android 18Added by BeadtmdcBecause Future Trunks warned the heroes of the future and they trained to become stronger, the androids of this timeline have been made considerably stronger, to the point where Android 18, the weakest of the three, by herself is able to even easily take down Super Saiyan Vegeta and Future Trunks together. Vegeta fights Android 18 and eventually loses. Future Trunks rushes to his father's aid, but he is smashed down by Android 17. When Future Trunks rises again to attack Android 18, she breaks his sword and Android 17 comes down and knocks him out. As he gets back up and tries to attack again, Android 18 throws Vegeta at him.

Eventually, Cell from another alternate timeline is revealed and hatches from his larval state, and he sets about absorbing the androids of the current timeline. Because the androids and Cell are superior in strength to any of the fighters, the heroes go to train again, this time in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. [15]Android 18 blocks Future Trunks' sword attackAdded by BeadtmdcWhen Vegeta and Future Trunks train in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber together, Future Trunks believes he surpasses Vegeta in power (though he fails to see the reason why Vegeta stops increasing his maximum power at the time) by ascending further to the Ultra Super Saiyan state like Trunks. However, throughout the year that was spent in the Time Chamber, Future Trunks realized Vegeta's real sense of Saiyan pride and thought it was best to hide his truepower level out of fear of upsetting his father, unaware of the fact or reason Vegeta purposely did not ascend.

Future Trunks had managed to reach what is known as the Ultra Super Saiyan state, where the Saiyan is still a Super Saiyan, but has greatly augmented their physical strength from even the Ascended Super Saiyan state. However, due to the overblown muscle mass, the brute force benefit in this form is offset by a gross decrease in speed, a point which Cell proved by toying with him, constantly dodging his every move, then explaining the flaw and proving he could bulk up just the same. It is later realized that Vegeta could have easily reached this same level of power if he wanted, but decided against it due to knowing full well the form's weakness, something Future Trunks failed to spot during their training due to his inexperience.

Combating CellEdit

Main articles: Perfect Cell Saga and Cell Games Saga

"You androids make me sick the way you act like this is all just some twisted game. What you androids did to my world was all too real. And I promise that will not be repeated here!"

— Future Trunks towards Cell, "The Strongest Super Saiyan! Trunks' Power Unleashed!"

[16]Perfect Cell vs. Ultra Super Saiyan TrunksAdded by BeadtmdcFuture Trunks is the second Saiyan to take on Perfect Cell with the intention of destroying him. Although Future Trunks' power was enough to deal significant damage to Cell, Future Trunks simply kept increasing his power, unaware that his speed was greatly decreasing and his energy consumption greatly augmented to a point where sustaining the state would prove to be a problem. His body became too bulky and slow from the large quantity of muscle and this gave Cell the upper hand, despite not even having powered up and slightly below Future Trunks in brute strength. Future Trunks quickly realized that he was too slow and gave up hope right before Cell's eyes. The battle hungry Cell however, was intrigued at how strong Future Trunks had become in such a short period of time and posed a challenge to the strongest fighters on Earth (The Z Fighters) to train as much as they could over a period of ten days. Then at the end of these ten days all the greatest fighters of Earth will compete in the Cell Games. Future Trunks then left the battlefield and spread the word about the Cell Games before taking a position in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, again training for a whole year in one day. [17]Super Perfect Cell kills Future Trunks upon his returnAdded by BeadtmdcWhen Future Trunks emerges from his training his power had seen very little increase compared to last time. Future Trunks is forced to contend with Cell'ssmaller but incredibly powerful clones along with the other heroes, slowly and gradually losing the fight. After Cell self destructs out of fear of Super Saiyan 2Gohan, one cell containing the core of his being survives and he uses it to resurrect himself, much stronger than he ever had been before. Upon his reappearance, he impales Future Trunks through the chest with a Full Power Death Beam, mortally wounding him (while the FUNimation Dub states that this was intentional, the original version implies that he was just firing randomly, as evidenced by the line "Who was it that I hit? Trunks?"). While Gohan is preparing to fight Cell again, Trunks uses up the last of his life energy to vomit up blood, and the Z Fighters rush over to aid him, only to realize he had died that moment. [18]Future Trunks is revived by ShenronAdded by BeadtmdcThis act causes a drastic change in Vegeta who becomes enraged that someone who cared about him has been killed and reveals his affection for his son. Vegeta then gives everything he can give to try and take down Super Perfect Cell although he fails and is overwhelmed by Cell's power, who takes all his attacks without a scratch and severely cripples him with a halfhearted blow, preparing to kill him like he did Future Trunks (only to have Gohan shield him, but at the cost of the use of his left arm). After Cell's defeat, the dead Future Trunks is taken to Kami's Lookout where he is revived by Shenron. Later, when told how his father reacted to his death by Yamcha, Future Trunks became shockingly proud of his father.

Back to the FutureEdit

Main article: Free the Future

"You hate the fact that you're powerless to stop me, that you're completely outmatched. Well imagine feeling the way you feel now all the time like the people of this planet do. Fools! How do you think my master Gohan felt when you ganged up on him in the rain and he had no way out? Well now it's your turn, I hope you enjoy it."

— Future Trunks towards Android 17 and Android 18

[19]Future Trunks flashing a sign of respect to his father Vegeta, before going back to the futureAdded by Dbzfan555After the celebrations for Cell's long-waited defeat, Vegeta acknowledges Future Trunks while he says his goodbyes. After saying his goodbyes, Future Trunks returns to his own time to exact revenge on the androids for murdering the Z Fighters. After reuniting with his mother, Future Bulma, Future Trunks hears a news update on the location of the androids and he quickly powers up into his powered Super Saiyan form, now greatly augmented by his two years of training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. At Parsley City, the androids are about to kill another innocent man (in the manga he is killed before Future Trunks' arrival by being shot in the face by Android 17), when suddenly Future Trunks hurtles a very accurate energy attack which narrowly misses Android 17. The cocky androids foolishly underestimate Future Trunks and try to rush him. Future Trunks easily dodges their attacks and punishes them duly, obliterating Android 18 in a point-blank energy blast. Android 17 looks on in disbelief and his feelings soon turn to hatred when the outclassed android charges Future Trunks again, but he too is terminated with ease ina single blow, before being blown to dust effortlessly. [20]Future Trunks confronts the AndroidsAdded by BeadtmdcThe completely unscathed Future Trunks returns home since everything now seems at peace with the Earth, except for one thing: Cell. Three years pass before the determined bio-android roams around in his weakest form looking for the now non-existent androids and comes across Future Trunks and Bulma saying their goodbyes near the time machine. Future Trunks is age 23 at the time. As Future Trunks is about to leave for the past one final time to inform them of his success, he senses Cell and sends his mother away. He turns towards Imperfect Cell and begins to taunt him with his knowledge from the alternate past. He informs him that he has killed the androids from the current time. [21]Future Trunks destroys Android 18Added by BeadtmdcThe cocky Cell approaches the half-Saiyan under the false impression that Future Trunks is still at the level of power when he initially went back in time and warned Goku, even weaker than the future Androids who are in turn inferior to Cell's strength by a long shot. The fight begins and Cell is clearly outclassed as Future Trunks hurls him outside of the city with a simple energy wave in his base state. Once outside West City, Future Trunks then transforms into Super Saiyan and then proceeds to clobber Cell with great ease. [22]Future Trunks confronts Future CellAdded by BeadtmdcWhen declaring that Cell must die, Cell gets enraged and launches his tail at Future Trunks. Future Trunks takes action by grabbing Cell's tail and swinging him around in a circle, building up momentum, and then hurling him high into the air. Cell realizes that he has no hope against the new powers of Future Trunks, and prepares a Kamehameha large enough to destroy the planet, knowing all too well that he could survive in space. Cell begins the attack but is interrupted when Future Trunks powers up and unleashes a massive destructive wave of energy (theHeat Dome Attack) which incinerates Cell completely. With the future finally at peace, Future Trunks is seen for the last time in the series, looking towards the sky while thanking Goku and his friends in the past one last time.

Another Alternate TimelineEditEdit

[23]Future Trunks killed by CellAdded by BeadtmdcIn another alternate main timeline, Future Trunks went into the past and helped Goku just as in the main timeline. Future Trunks and the Z Fighters manage to defeat the androids and he travels back to his alternate future timeline. Because this was a completely different timeline, the events of Cell never occurred and he did not expect to encounter Cell. When he returned to his alternate future timeline, he disabled the other future Androids and was going to go back to the past to tell the others of their defeat. Instead, he ran into and fought with Cell who killed him and then went on to take Future Trunks' time machine into the main timeline to mesh with the events of the show. However, this timeline returned to a peaceful state as the androids were deactivated and Cell traveled to the main timeline. This came with the loss of Future Trunks, which could have brought the Saiyan race to what seems to be extinction in this specific timeline.

Dragonball ZeronEdit

Xicor sagaEdit

Future Trunks had not been seen for a long time. However he wanted to have a reunion with his old companions from Universe 18, and he used his time machine to come back to Universe 18. When he came back however, the Z fighters were desperate in finding a seventh Super Saiyan to bring Goku back. 7 Super Saiyans had to hold the stone dragonballs, and there were six already including Gohan, Vegeta, Past Trunks, Goten, Bulla and Pan. However they were relieved to find out that Future Trunks had made it, and Future Trunks became the seventh Super Saiyan, and brought Goku back from the Dragon Realm. After Goku was revived, Future Trunks spent some time with his friends, and told them that he will return after 6 months when Xicor is about to come out. Future Trunks returns, to see the fight between Goku and Xicor. Goku, Vegeta and Gohan in Super Saiyan 4 form fight an even battle with Xicor, but can't beat him. Vegeta and Gohan run out of energy, and Vegeta states that they are wasting their time, and he states that Kakarot (Goku) could not change a thing. Goku was also out of energy, but then Goku becomes a Super Saiyan 5, going way beyond a Super Saiyan 5. Vegeta is amazed that there was a form above Super Saiyan 4. Goku in his Super Saiyan 5 form defeats Xicor. However Xicor wanted to show his trump card, the Eevil Kamehameha, which he uses after he goes up the sky. Goku then uses his new Super Saiyan 5 signature move, the Silver Kamehameha, and clashes it with the Evil Kamehameha. Goku manages to overpower Xicor, and hit Xicor with his Silver Kamehameha, sending him far out to space, thus finally ending Xicor's terror and thus saving the world again. Future Trunks happily goes back to his timeline.

Zets tournament sagaEdit

Future Trunks was absent for the Tyrant saga, however he payed another visit to the Z fighters after they were proposed a Planet Zets tournament by none other than Lord Zeron himself. Goku accepts the offer, but knows that they have a plan. Goku, Future Trunks, Gohan, Piccolo and Vegeta go in the light speeded space ship to Planet Zets, and found out that they were booed by everyone. The torunament's first match was Piccolo vs Cell. Cell had a new Android Evolution form, and proved to be stronger for the Super Namek 3 Piccolo, however Piccolo managed to transform into a Super Namek 4, and defeat the new Android Evolution Perfect Cell. The next match was Future Trunks vs Goku, where Future Trunks turned into a Super Saiyan 3 for the first time. The both fought an explosive Super Saiyan 3 battle. Future Trunks used brutal attacks such as the airdance, however Goku used his new move the Dragon Destruction to defeat Future Trunks and send him out of the ring. The both shook their hands after the match to show good sportsmanship. The both then went back to their spaces to watch the third match which was Vegeta vs Lila Cold. Before the match, King Cold gives Lila Cold the Suta drink, and she drinks it. After Lila Cold drinks the Suta, she is in a place where a demon was, which was actually the evil inside her. The demon unlocked Lila Cold's hidden powers. Lila Cold then becomes much more stronger, as she can now use dark powers. Lila Cold then fights a brutal match with Vegeta who was in his Super Saiyan 4 form. Vegeta lost his cool due to his humiliation in his life, and his humiliation early in the match, however Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta injured Lila Cold with a bunch of strong attacks, and a Big Bang Attack. After that, Vegeta got manipulated by Lord Zeron himself, however, no one knew what was going on, and no one could sense who the manipulator was. It was none other than Lord Zeron himself sitting on his throne above the crowd, which Goku and the others figured out. Goku turned into a Super Saiyan 4 and went up to where the throne was, and Super Saiyan 4 Goku punched Lord Zeron down to the crowd. After Vegeta was manipulated, he was mentally damaged, and could not talk as he was almost dead. Lila Cold, hanging on to life by a thread used an energy wave to push Vegeta out of the ring, and Yougirou declared Lila Cold the winner of the match, which the Z fighters get angry about. The Z fighters complain and state that it was Lord Zeron manipulating Vegeta, but the Tyrants refuse as there was no evidence to the truth. Lord Zeron get's back to his throne, not hurt a bit, which amazes and brings fear upon the Z fighters. Vegeta get's a senzu bean, and he survives from the brink of death. Vegeta now stronger, turns into a Super Saiyan 4, and attempts to attack Lord Zeron, but Future Trunks turns into a Super Saiyan 4 as well to stop Vegeta, knowing of what Lord Zeron might be able to do. Piccolo was amazed seeing Future Trunks as a Super Saiyan 4. Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta angrily leaves and goes back to his space after Super Saiyan 4 Future Trunks begs Vegeta to not fight Lord Zeron. They all then go back to each of their spaces again.

FormsEdit

Future Trunks has many forms, and he is also one of the strongest warriors in the series.

Super Saiyan Main article: Super SaiyanEdit

He transforms for the first time after seeing his mentor Future Gohan killed at the hands of the androids in his timeline (notably, in the manga, he is able to achieve Super Saiyan all along, making it somewhat likely he simply is able to transform naturally, as his present timeline self; he however struggles with even Future Gohan's base state in the form, which may suggest that it was rather recently reached, due to its meager power, despite his harsh training). The energy involved in the transformation causes Future Trunks' hair to stand on end and turn a golden color. His facial expression is sharpened, and the color of his eyes turns a bright emerald green. When in this state Trunks' power level increases dramatically. Even so, he always maintains his sincere, serious demeanor. He uses this form later in DragonBall Zeron as well.

Ascended Super SaiyanEdit

Main article: Ascended Super Saiyan [24]Trunks as an Ascended Super SaiyanAdded by SSJ2AJBAfter their defeat at the hands of Android 17 and Android 18, he and Vegeta underwent severe training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, during which Trunks' gained the ability to take this form. When taking this form, Future Trunks' muscles swell, making his body several sizes larger than normal, and his power and speed are elevated beyond his previous Super Saiyan limits. He first used this form to fight against Semi-Perfect Cell, in a attempt to keep him from absorbing Android 18 and reaching completion. This fight scene only happened in a filler part of the anime, while in the manga, he was about to fight Semi-Perfect Cell but was knocked away by Vegeta, and when he struck Vegeta with his energy blast to repel him away in surprise, but was blinded by Cell's Solar Flare and was forced to see Cell complete himself inside a barrier when his vision returned. After witnessing Vegeta's defeat at Perfect Cell's hands, he transformed to Super Saiyan 3rd Grade, but lost due to his severe speed decrease. As a result, Trunks entered the Hyperbolic Time Chamber a second time to focus on increasing his strength as a regular Super Saiyan to its highest possible point.

Ultra Super SaiyanEdit

Main article: Ultra Super Saiyan [25]Trunks as an Ultra Super SaiyanAdded by BeadtmdcAnother transformation Future Trunks gained while training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. Future Trunks utilizes this state while fighting the recently completed Perfect Cell. In this form Future Trunks muscles swell even larger than in his Super Saiyan 2nd Grade form. In this stage, however, the increase in power comes at a cost of reduced speed and mobility, and because of the massive energy required to maintain this form, it is not sustainable for long periods of time, which ultimately puts him in a life-threatening disadvantage.

Super Saiyan 2 Edit

Fighting Goku in the Zets tournament second match, Future Trunks bypasses Super Saiyan 2 to become a Super Saiyan 3. He has aura surrounding him in this form.

Super Saiyan 3Edit

Future Trunks becomes a Super Saiyan 3 to fight Super Saiyan 3 Goku. Future Trunks has longer hair in this form, and has blue lightning aura. In addition to this form, he can still use the Burning Attack, Finish Buster and some of the energy blasts.
