* HeroesPreferSwords:
** His WeaponOfChoice is a sword, sharp enough to slice through Mecha Frieza like butter.
** In ''Super'', after the blade of his sword gets destroyed, Trunks replaces it with [[LaserBlade ki]], which later expands as he subconsciously charges up a Spirit Bomb into the blade, resulting in the [[{{BFG}} Spirit Sword}}]] capable of [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu cutting up]] [[PhysicalGod Fusion Zamasu]].

* CallingParentsByTheirName: Future Trunks called his father by his first name in the Cell Arc. This is due to them not having much of a strong relationship and Vegeta's lack of respect for his son.

* WalkingSpoiler: Quite possibly the biggest in the series. It's not possible to talk about Trunks without bringing up his shocking parentage and that he's from the future.

** Instead of giving the Z fighters information on what the Androids looked like, he simply tells them they exist. This leads to 16, 17 and 18 being awakened and 18's beatdown on Vegeta. This also later allows Cell to become perfect.

* BreakTheHaughty: In "The History of Trunks" when he becomes a Super Saiyan for the first time, Future Trunks becomes arrogant and recklessly takes on Future Androids #17 and #18, despite Future Bulma's protests. Trunks promply gets his ass handed to him by the Androids, realizes that he should have listened to his mother, and later agrees with Future Bulma to use the time machine.

** [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] example considering [[spoiler:Future Trunks doesn't get his Super Saiyan Rage form in the manga]] but Future Trunks' Super Saiyan 2 form in the ''Super'' manga is more powerful than in the anime. In the anime, Future Trunks is around as powerful as Super Saiyan 2 Goku and Vegeta in the Buu Saga. Manga Trunks has a [[spoiler: mutated Super Saiyan 2 form that is almost on par with Super Saiyan 3 Goku]]. Instead of using Super Saiyan 3 to knock Trunks out, Goku uses Super Saiyan God. Also, [[spoiler: he trained with the Supreme Kai and pulled the Z-Sword. Even better, he fights Dabura with it, before he [[SuperSpit spits]] on it and shatters it, killing Old Kai]].

** Cell also qualifies, given his status as Trunks' EvilCounterpart and the embodiment of everything he fights against, being another time traveler from the future who seeks to spread evil rather than save lives. Trunks comes to learn he bears a measure of responsibility for the Bio-Android's reign of terror in the present, as he was only allowed to journey through time due to Trunks' time machine.

** Trunks accepts a ''lot'' of responsibility for what in the end just isn't his fault, taking more and more blame for what goes wrong just because ''he's there.'' [[spoiler:But this has a limit, and Future Zamasu & Goku Black crossed it after they blamed the deaths of all the Earthlings on him, since Goku Black only chose Trunks' timeline since he broke the taboo on time travel. After hearing this, he [[RageBreakingPoint rightfully snaps]] and gains a new transformation.]]

** His importance in video games is something to be amazed with. That's where his attacks got named in the first place. In ''Final Bout'' he's treated as a separate character even though there's other ''two'' grown-up Trunks in the game already. In ''Shin Budokai'' and ''Heroes'', Trunks is TheProtagonist and a Supporting Protagonist respectively. Also the latest video games are fond of giving the Super Saiyan 3 transformation to other Saiyans besides Goku but they're just thrown in with no proper build up. Trunks' transformation, however, is an important plot ticket in ''Heroes'' and got an animation just for it. There's also his involvement in ''{{Videogame/Dragon Ball Online}}'' and ''Xenoverse'' as Time Patrol Trunks, where he serves as the main NonPlayerCompanion teacher. He once again takes center stage in the mobile game ''VideoGame/DragonballZDokkanBattle'', where he's the NonPlayerCharacter protagonist for the main quest storyline.

** Trunks' ending is even more bitter in the timeline Cell came from. Trunks kills the androids using the remote control that Bulma built in the past to deactivate them. When he's about to return to the past and tell everyone the news, Cell ambushes him and murders him before stealing his time machine. So that world is free of the androids, but all of its powerful defenders are dead and the Saiyans are extinct unless you count Tarble.

*** And as a final kick to the nuts, [[spoiler:after splitting Merged Zamasu in half and seemingly winning the day thanks to using the energy of all the survivors on Earth, Merged Zamasu's spirit fuses with the multiverse and kills everyone Trunks tried to save except Future Mai. Then Future Zen'o outright wipes out the timeline, destroying everything including the [[DeaderThanDead afterlife]]. So all Trunks' efforts were literally for [[AllForNothing nothing]]]].

** He is hit by this hard in the Future Trunks Saga. Because Goku lived through his heart virus thanks to the medicine Trunks gave him, it set up the events for Goku to meet Zamasu, [[spoiler: who becomes obsessed with Goku to the point of stealing his body with the Super Dragon Balls]]. Furthermore, Goku would never have even met Zamasu if Trunks didn't return to the past again to get help fighting [[spoiler: Goku Black]], since Goku only went to U10 to see if Zamasu was Black, leading to a StableTimeLoop. Both Black and [[spoiler:Future Zamasu]] rubs this in Trunks' face when they call him a sinner for breaking the time law created by the gods.

* FailureHero: Poor Future Trunks gets hit with this hard in the Future Trunks Saga. For over a year, he fights [[spoiler: Goku Black]] and loses every time despite his best efforts. Black also gets stronger every time they battle, making victory for him more impossible. After going to the past to get help, Goku, Vegeta, and he still can't beat Black and Black has a powerful ally, [[spoiler: Future Zamasu, who is an immortal]]. During their second battle, he learns that Black specifically [[spoiler: chose his timeline to punished him for breaking the time taboo and creating a new Time Ring when he saved Goku from the heart virus]]. All this frustration and anger causes him to transform into a new form of Super Saiyan...which only puts him on par with Black and [[spoiler: Future Zamasu]], and he's quickly overwhelmed. Then, just when it seems he finally won against all the odds thanks to [[spoiler: unconsciously creating a Spirit Bomb from all the survivors on Earth, merging it into his sword, and slicing Merged Zamasu in half]], it all comes crashing down when [[spoiler: Merged Zamasu's soul fuses with the multiverse and kills everyone in it except for a named few. What's left is erased by Future Zen'o, leaving Trunks' timeline nothing but an empty void. Except for Future Mai, Trunks [[AllForNothing literally lost everything]]]].

* IcyBlueEyes: An unusual case since Trunks' eyes are natural blue unlike all the other Saiyans. Even still, when he becomes a Super Saiyan, he takes on its characteristic cold blue eyes. Frieza freaks out upon seeing them, comparing them to Goku's.

** His relationship with [[spoiler: Goku Black]]. Not only did he destroy Trunks' world after it was just beginning to recover from the androids, he [[spoiler: murders Future Bulma in cold blood, and nearly did the same to Future Mai]]. He also gives Trunks a severe case of PTSD and he can barely sleep.

* MakeSureHesDead: His killing of Mecha-Frieza; in this order, he [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe slices Frieza vertically in half with his sword]], slices those two halves into little pieces, and then blasts those pieces into ash with a point-blank Ki blast. Considering the fact that Frieza had previously survived a brutal beatdown from Goku, being sliced in half by his [[HoistByHisOwnPetard own energy disc]], and being ''on'' Planet Namek when it [[EarthShatteringKaboom exploded]], as well the fact that when he's revived in ''[[Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF Resurrection 'F']]'' with his body still in pieces, he's still alive and fully conscious, all of Trunks' measures seemed absolutely necessary to ensure Frieza wouldn't be coming back.

** Future Trunks in the ''Super'' manga gets this as he has a mutated version of the Super Saiyan 2 that makes him even with Super Saiyan 3 Goku [[note]]In the manga, Goku didn't absorb godhood. Instead, Super Saiyan God is its own form.[[/note]]. How Trunks managed to get this mutated version of Super Saiyan 2 when all the other fighting prodigies didn't, is never explained other than "he trained for it", somehow. The closest one can reason is that Trunks' Super Saiyan 2 is based off of Vegeta's rage Super Saiyan 2 form that he got after Beerus slapped Bulma. Even then, that was just a brief power-up and an explosion of rage. He also knows the Solar Flare, something he claimed that he learned from Gohan before he died [[note]]This is odd since Gohan has never been seen using the Solar Flare, and only having witnessed Krillin using it once. Although Goku and Krillin learned it just through watching it, with Krillin stating it's not too hard to do[[/note]]. Later, Trunks conveniently discovers that he can [[HealingHands heal people with his hands]] since he trained as a Supreme Kai's attendance when he was preparing to stop Babidi from awakening Majin Buu.

* TheReveal: [[spoiler: According to himself, Goku Black is the direct result of Trunks meddling with time. He went back in time and created timelines when Goku isn't killed by the heart virus. This allowed the Zamasu from one of those timelines to steal Goku's body with the Super Dragon Balls and become Goku Black.

This allowed the Zamasu from one of those timelines to steal Goku's body with the Super Dragon Balls and become Goku Black. Then he teams up with the Zamasu from Future Trunks' Trunks's timeline thanks to the Time Ring.]]



** After going a long time without eating properly (Mai is happy to find something that isn't dog food to eat), Future Trunks gets tired just from running. This really affects Trunks since as a Saiyan, he needs to [[BigEater eat a lot of food]] to keep going. Similarly, the psychological effects of constantly running and seeing horrific things have taken a toll on Trunks' psyche: when he wakes up and sees Goku (who Black [[spoiler: took his body from]], [[LockedOutOfTheLoop with Trunks' last knowledge of Goku being that he was dead and didn't want to come back]]), it [[TraumaButton flashbacks to Black's deeds, and he immediately tries to kill Goku in a rage]]. Even after he's knocked out of it, made aware this ''is'' Goku etcetera, his body's still visibly affected under the surface, throughout the following episodes. His self-confidence is also shot to hell and he suffers from clear PTSD.

* RightForTheWrongReasons: In ''Super's'' Future Trunks Saga, after Beerus kills [[spoiler:Zamasu]], he believes that this means [[spoiler: [[EvilTwin Goku Black]] will be RetGone and]] Trunks' timeline is safe. However, Trunks, recalling that avoiding the death of the mainstream timeline version of Goku had no effect on his counterpart in his timeline, is not so sure and take Goku and Vegeta back with him to the future just to be certain, and indeed, nothing has changed; [[spoiler:Black still exists and is still wreaking havoc.]] However, while Trunks ''was'' correct to assume that his timeline was still in danger, it wasn't for the reason he thought; [[spoiler: Black explains that his Time Ring protects him from any changes in time, meaning that Beerus killing his past self wouldn't affect him even if it erased the timeline he originally came from.]]

* {{Retcon}}: According to Bulma and various flashbacks in ''Super'', Future Trunks apparently had blue hair the whole time, despite clips of him from ''Z'' showing otherwise, and Present Trunks' hair being the exact same shade it always was, matching Future Trunks pre-''Super''.

* TaughtByExperience: This is pretty much Trunks' mentality: After facing the androids as a Super Saiyan (the manga has him already a Super Saiyan, just older having gotten stronger by training), he received a CurbStompBattle, and learned to prioritize time-travelling for a solution instead of confronting the androids again, and it's implied that is how he learned to flee-on-sight. After training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, he fights Perfect Cell in his Super Saiyan 3rd Grade form and lost due to a speed disadvantage, and rarely used the form unless he had to. After returning to his time, his Super Saiyan form alone was enough to kill the androids - and his knowledge of Cell's ambush for the time machine prevents the bio-android from getting the drop on him, and killing him. Trunks takes advantage of this trope during his sparring match with Vegeta. He uses the Super Saiyan 3rd Grade form to lower Vegeta's guard, and immediately switched to Super Saiyan 2 to exploit his overconfidence.

** A mild example. After he defeats Frieza and King Cold with little effort, he challenges Goku to see how powerful he is. Goku blocks all of Trunks' attacks with one finger and didn't even move.

** Goku Black/Zamasu is his mortal enemy in ''Super'', representing the opposite of everything that Trunks dedicated his life to doing. He destroys the very future world that Trunks tried so hard to protect, far worse than the androids did so nearly two decades ago, and [[spoiler: murders Future Bulma and very nearly Mai before his eyes]]. Trunks has sworn to defeat Black and is so bitterly imbued with [[ThePowerOfHate hatred]] for Black that it triggers a [[EleventhHourSuperpower new transformation]] in him. While it initially appeared that Black viewed Trunks as an annoyance rather than as a nemesis, it's later revealed that Trunks is the very reason why he began his crusade and possesses a special degree of hatred for him, [[spoiler: due to Trunks' act of breaking the taboo of the gods by time traveling and changing history. It's later revealed Black/Zamasu had specifically chosen to prolong his attack on Earth to further punish Trunks]].
