Appearance

Trunks appears tall and slender although still muscular. He favors his maternal side by having light blue eyes and light purple hair. From the time he first appears to the time he enters the Room of Spirit and Time, and after the Cell Games, his hair is cut short in bowlcut style. From the time he exits to the end of the Cell Games, his hair is long. His hair grows unlike full blooded Saiyan hair (due to the Room's year-in-a-day effect). The Room of Spirit and Time (The Hyperbolic Time Chamber in FUNimations English dub), from the manga Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z and the anime Dragon Ball/Z, is a fictional place located on Kamis Lookout. ...


Early on, Trunks wears a black sleeveless shirt and black pants along with his purple Capsule Corporation jacket and boots, as well as a sword in the sash worn round his back. This sword was bestowed to him by a warrior named Tapion, though it would've been in the present time line. It is a mystery how future Trunks ended up with it since that incident didn't occur in his time line. After he exits the Room of Spirit and Time, he starts to wear attire similar to his father's, white gloves, white boots with yellow tips, a skin-tight blue jumpsuit, and Saiyan battle armor, which was given to him by his mother Bulma (present time line). Trunks could only transform up to Super Saiyan before entering the Room of Spirit and Time. But afterwards, his training gave him the ability to transform into Super Trunks. Tapion is a fictional character from Dragon Ball Z Movie 13: Wrath of the Dragon He acts as the protagonist of this film and is described as a Legendary Hero from the planet Konats (Konnatsuu). This makes his race the Konnatsuu-jin (Konats Race). ...


Personality

Trunks' personality is distinguishable from the other characters because he originally was seen to be cautious and calculating. He often thinks through things and plans, advising against random action because of the horrific events in his own time line. Originally, this is shown when he told Kuririn to take the blueprints of the androids first before destroying Dr. Gero's laboratory and also in his reluctance to take action unless Goku is present. As the series continues, Trunks becomes more confident and less cautious, but never loses his rational thinking, he is also seen learning from his mistakes and poor judgment, such as his choice to use the Super Saiyan 3rd Grade. Kuririn , Krillin in most English adaptations) is a fictional character in the manga Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z, and the anime for Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and Dragon Ball GT. In the original Japanese version, he was voiced by Mayumi Tanaka. ... For the 2003 film, see Blueprint (movie). ... Chichi redirects here. ...


Unlike his father or alternate time line self, 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.


Character history

Future Trunks is first introduced just before the Android Saga where he fights and kills Freiza and King Cold (Freiza's father).[3] Afterwards Future Trunks along with Earth's heroes greet Son Goku, as he arrives from a long journey in space.[4] He also warns Goku of Dr. Gero's No. 17 and No. 18 and that Goku would contract a deadly heart virus.[5] Trunks then returned to his own time and later returned to the activated 17 and 18 for a second and final rematch.[6] Later, Trunks, along with Gohan, discovers Cell's cocoon in an old time machine. It is found out later in the series that the other Future Trunks was killed by Cell after killing Android 17 & 18. He transformed himself back in the egg stage while activating first Trunks' time machine to go back to the present timeline (to eat 17 & 18 and achieve the Perfect Cell form). It is probable that this alternate Future Trunks didn't train in the Room of Spirit and Time. Also, Trunks is responsible for defeating some of the most powerful villains in the saga such as Frieza, his father King Cold, Android 14, and Androids 17 and 18 as well as Cell in his own timeline. [7] The Androds Saga is a short period in the fictional anime series Dragon Ball Z. It features the first 5 Androids built by Dr. Gero, who are released and wreak havoc on the world. ...

Differences

By growing up in such a bleak future, Future Trunks is much more serious during his childhood. He also becomes much closer to Gohan because Goten doesn't exist in that time line. Present Trunks looks up to and respects Gohan, but their present selves are not as close as their future counterparts.


It is unknown how Trunks would react to meeting Future Trunks, however this occurs in the video games Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 and Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors. In Budokai 3, as well as in Shin Budokai, Trunks states that it is "Just like having a brother" whereas in Legendary Super Warriors, Tenkaichi 2 and Tenkaichi 3 he does not even realize it is his future self, and the two have a sparring match. They did meet in the manga 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 Corp. before the Cell Games announcement. For a minute, Trunks incessantly pulled on Future Trunks' hair.


Abilities

Like many other characters in the series Future Trunks can manipulate chi to power of enhance his attacks, Future Trunks has the ability to use the Bukujutsu (lit. "lighter than air skill"), which enables him to levitate and fly. His signature attacks are attacks given to him in the Budokai games called "Buster Cannon" which is a violet energy blast and "Burning Storm" which seems to be a ki volley form of the attack. Although these attacks have been widely accepted as his signature techniques neither of them have ever been seen the anime of manga. Future Trunks has two ultimate attacks entitled "Burning Attack" which involves a series of hand movements and fires a ball that burns a vast amount of land, and "Finish Buster" which is a giant ball of energy that appears above his head. This attack was used once against Vegeta and imperfect Cell.


Forms and transformations

When Future Trunks is first introduced he transformed into a Super Saiyan.[8] Future Trunks uses this form while in battle. After training in the Room of Spirit and Time, Trunks is able to access Super Saiyan 2nd Grade and Super Saiyan 3rd Grade. Trunks uses both forms to fight Cell's Semi-Perfect and Perfect forms respectively but afterwards reverts to using the normal Super Saiyan form after Cell revealed to him that his bulky muscles are making him too slow to hit him.
