Future Trunks


Trunks is the Earthling and Saiyan hybrid son of Bulma and Vegeta, and the older brother of Bulla. By 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).

Well-mannered, serious and very cautious, Trunks hails from an alternate timeline in which Androids 17 and 18 murdered the Z Fighters and proceeded to create apocalyptic hell on Earth. Trunks is trained by Future Gohan as a teenager and becomes a gifted fighter, swordsman and a Super Saiyan; traits that aid him greatly in the battle against the Androids after traveling back in time in order to save his own future.

Years later, Future Trunks would return in Dragon Ball Super, this time fighting against a mysterious entity referred to as Goku Black (and later his partner-in-crime Zamasu) wreaking havoc in the future. In the end, Trunks (with the help of Goku and Vegeta) neutralizes the threat, though unfortunately, Fused Zamasu not only survives the ordeal, but his essence began to merge with the universe itself, to the point that Future Zeno had to erase the future timeline completely. Trunks himself is one of the three survivors and is currently living in another future timeline where another Future Trunks exists - created in the anime by Whis warning Future Beerus ahead of time to eliminate the soon-to-be rogue Supreme Kai, while in the manga Trunks and Mai travel to their timeline's past and prevent Future Shin's death with the blessing Beerus as it will save his counterpart, thus eliminating the possibility of the Zero Mortals Plan.

Trunks is my favorite swordsman in Dragon Ball series. I can't think of any other characters in the series who use a sword. There should be more. I was never a huge fan of DBZ, but I remember in the 90's... a lot of my friends at high school were drawing this character and telling me how cool Trunks was. I was telling those kids how cool arcades and Street Fighter were. Multi-year friendships were born.

Anyhow, I like Future Trunks. He's got the Lee Chaolan hair. (Yes, I know Trunks existed before Lee and actually Lee's hair was perhaps inspired by Trunks - although it's a pretty basic hairstyle.) As a Tekken fan, I find it ironic that Lee's alternate color "Violet" also matches Trunks purple hair. I have spent a bit too long on Trunks profile talking about his hair. But the dude has strong hair game. Respect. In closing, Trunks looks amazing in Dragon Ball Fighter Z. They did some cool homages to his iconic poses and artworks.
