Go To

Tournament of Power – Mirai/Future Edition is a Dragon Ball Super fanfic written by Pretty_Handsome which explores the aftermath of the "Future Trunks" arc as Trunks and Mai, thanks to Whis, went to an alternate timeline in which they decided to alienate themselves from the timeline's native Trunks. However, two years later, the Earth is attacked by an unknown threat against which the native Trunks, having never unlocked Super Saiyan 2, lost his life. As the Future Trunks we know examines the battlefield, an angry Beerus appears and proceeds to talk to Trunks about the oncoming Tournament of Power....


Tournament of Power – Mirai/Future Edition provides examples of:

  • Action Dad: Trunks has a daughter with Mai, named Bulma, and he participates in the Tournament of Power.
  • Adaptational Badass: Most of the cast, given it happens several years later than the canon Tournament of Power.
    • Android 16, who used Babidi's magic to enhance his capabilities.
    • Trunks, who is given training by Whis before the Tournament starts.
    • Ganos, who can now use God Ki.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Due to not becoming nicer as a result from his fight with Goku, Beerus in this timeline is shown to be more unpleasant in this fic compared to the present timeline. He loses his temper more often in this fic to the point of threatening other people to death including almost erasing Zajak just for annoying him, tries to kill/seal both Shin and Elder Kai for their supposed incompetence and he even tries to take out his rage at the elder for Cross devouring Android 16 by trying to reseal him again.
    • That applies to Zeno as well
  • Alternate Timeline: The fic takes in place in the new timeline that Present Whis helps create by pre-emptively dealing with that timeline's Zamasu before he can even begin to wreak havoc in that time. As a result, the characters here can technically be called "Future X" but since the Main timeline is hardly referred to at all, this isn't really needed.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Dyspo loses his left leg during the confrontation against Prime and is forced to be replaced with a mechanical one after losing it. Prime later destroyed this replacement in order to sabotage him during the confrontation against Hit and Caulifla.

  • Ascended Extra: The "Evil-doer" who killed Jiren's family and mentor; referred only in a passing by Belmod in the main timeline, appears as an actual person under the alias of Prime in this fic, and is one of the four members of Universe 11 that is chosen for the Tournament of Power.
  • Awesome Moment of Crowning: Champa off-handedly mentions how he and the rest of the gods are forced to attend a ceremony where Toppo is newly crowned as the God of Destruction of Universe 11.
  • Blood Knight:
    • Zajak, whose companions call her attitude "battlelust".
    • Caulifla, as in canon.
    • Prime, the monster who killed Jiren's parents and companions, is apparently thrilled at the idea of fighting Jiren.
  • Body Horror: Ganos may be able to wield god ki but that doesn't mean his body can handle it.
  • Break the Cutie:
    • The sight of Prime mutilating and murdering all of her comrades has traumatized Cocotte to the point that she is stated to be under heavy mental therapy from what she had witnessed.
    • Advertisement:
    • Cabba being beaten up by Ganos in a slow and agonizing manner has been stated to traumatized him so much that Vados is forced to put him into a deep sleep until his mind can recover from the painful beatdown.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Its shown in this fic that a god is capable of losing their divine Ki and revert to a mortal again. This happened with Elder Kai who surrendered his Supreme Kai role to save Shin and Beerus's life and later happened by Quitela who has been stripped of all his divinity by Zeno as part of his Cruel and Unusual Death.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: This is the fate of Quitela after his crimes are exposed. He has his divinity and status as a God of Destruction completely stripped by Zeno, is chained to the dungeons where his limbs are stretched thin, as he gets molten lava poured upon him where his body gets burned slowly, some sinister energy engulfed his sensitive parts until he dies. Even Beerus, who is Forced to Watch finds this torture to be exceedingly cruel despite not liking him in the slightest.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:
    • Ganos and Nink vs Cabba and Frost. While Frost could handle himself well against Nink, Ganos just completely slaughtered his two opponents at the end.
    • Android #16 and Cross vs Prime, where the two Universe 7 fighters stood absolutely no chance of defeating the latter even to the point of toying around with them, let alone even facing Jiren which is ultimately what ended up being the final nail in the coffin for Cross's betrayal and absorption of Android #16.
  • Dead Guy Junior: Trunks and Mai have a daughter named after Bulma who was murdered by Goku Black, Played with in that the Bulma of the timeline they live in is still alive.
  • Death by Adaptation:
    • Universes 9, 10, 3, and 2 got pre-emptively erased by Zeno before Whis proposed the Tournament of Power in hopes of sparing Universe 7 from erasure.
    • Kale dies at Caulifla's hands before the events of the story.
    • Shosa and Majora, from Universe 4, aged faster than the rest of the cast and were given a warrior's death at Nink's hand some time before the beginning of the story.
    • Quite a few Pride Troopers died at Prime's hands before the events of the fic.
  • Demonic Possession: Prime's goal is to do this to Jiren. He succeeds.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Caulifla crosses this when Cabba goes into a coma even refusing to fight back against Prime in their match until he threatens to kill him while helpless.
  • Enemy Mine:
    • Trunks reluctantly teams up with Android #16 and his creation Cross in the perspective of the Tournament of Power.
    • Universe 6 and Universe 7 make a deal so they can train against each other in exchange of the winning universe wishing the other into their own.
    • In Universe 11, Toppo decides to ask for Prime, the entity who killed Jiren's parents and companions, to join his team for the Tournament.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Prime acts civil and jovial towards his enemies but that doesn't really hide what a monster he is, particularly during his attempts at mentally breaking Coccotte by mutilating and murdering the other Pride Troopers just for the heck of it.
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: In chapter 9, a berserk Kale uses what's left of Frost to pummel Cabba.
  • Happily Adopted: Zajak, by "the Captain"
  • Happily Married: Trunks and Mai, as said by Trunks when Elder Kai compliments Zajak's beauty.
    Trunks: You know that I'm happily married, right?
    • Cabba and Caulifla also count.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Elder Kai and Frost think of Cross as such.
  • Human Popsicle: At Marcarita's urging, Prime is ordered to be frozen solid by Toppo in order to maintain Universe 11's mortal level. He is only thawed later on, when the threat of their universe's erasure forced them to recruit him as one of the fighters chosen for the Tournament of Power.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Cross eats Android 16 to gain more power during their match with Prime and Jiren.
  • Kill the God: Jiren intends to use the Super Dragon Balls to wish for the complete erasure of all the gods including Zeno and Marcarita, believing that their continued existence will only endanger his own universe.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Cabba and Caulifla are this, Trunks even lampshades it.
    It was now clear to Trunks on who was the one, literally, wearing the pants in that relationship.
  • Magitek:
    • Android 16 used Babidi's knowledge of magic to enhance his mechanical body's capabilities.
    • Similarly, he created Cross using Gero's technology and Babidi's magic.
  • Manipulative Bastard:
    • Frost, who manipulated Kale into hating Cabba, resulting in the death on thousands of innocents. He also manipulates Cross to lead him to betray his creator, Android #16.
    • Whis manipulates Zeno into erasing the other universes to reduce the other obstacles for Universe 7 for the Tournament of Power that he is about to suggest such as making him erase Universe 3 on the grounds that they do not respect the Omni-King. If it weren't for Quitela's intervention, then Universe 11 would have been erased and would have removed a massive obstacle for his own universe's survival.
  • Mercy Kill: Caulifla ends Kale when the latter confesses her love, both to end her misery and to avenge the saiyans that Kale had just slaughtered.
  • The Mole: Marcarita seem to be Toppo's angel and serve by his side but it is later revealed that she is also in league with Universe 11's greatest nemesis Prime to the point that she teach him how to use God Ki and even agreed to cooperate in his goal of overthrowing Toppo as the new God of Destruction, particularly after The Reveal of Jiren's wish.
  • Physical Scars, Psychological Scars: While Senzu Beans and gods can heal off any physical injuries, it is stated multiple times not even god or angels can heal the mental scars from a traumatizing conflict. To quote Android #16 from Dragon Ball Z Abridged: "Senzu Beans can only heal physical injuries. Only therapy can heal emotional trauma."
  • Plot-Powered Stamina: The author specifically defy this trope by having the team rest in-between the matches due to the prevalence of this trope in the Main Timeline Tournament, specifically when Goku, whom is stated to ran out of stamina after using Ultra Instinct, can suddenly reactivate his SSB and Kaioken just after a few seconds of fighting.
  • Replacement Scrappy: In-universe example has Marcarita seeing Toppo as being an inferior God of Destruction to Belmod in every way, even declaring the latter to be the best among all of he past gods.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: Lord Zeno can just decide to ignore whatever rule he created for the tournament as he pleases.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Main Timeline!Whis is only offhandedly mentioned by this timeline Whis as the one who suggested the tournament but if it weren't for his intervention, the Universe 7, and by extension the Trunks from the other timeline would have been erased as would the other universes that is about to be erased. Essentially, his intervention gave the surviving universes a chance for survival.
  • That Man Is Dead: After his evolution Cross renames himself Superior.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Universe 11's warriors aren't happy at the idea of working with Prime and the feeling is mutual.
  • What's Up, King Dude?: Caulifla acts as rude and informal as she gets in front of Zeno to the point of even affectionately calling him "Lil'Zeno", however Zeno takes this in stride to the point of even seeing her as a true friend. Given that she is the Distaff Counterpart of Goku, it's no surprise that she is able to so casually banter with someone who can easily erase things in the blink of an eye.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity:
    • Kale's Beserker Super Saiyan form.
    • Also, to an extent, Trunks' Super Saiyan Rage form, if uncontrolled.
  • Yandere: Kale, who became crazy and achieved the Berserk Super Saiyan form when she saw Cabba kissing her "sis" Caulifla.


How well does it match the trope?
