    After Goku arrives back on Earth, the mysterious boy asks if he can talk to Goku. Even though Goku doesn't know who the boy is, he goes with him. The boy turns out to be a kid named Trunks from the future. Trunks tells Goku about how in his (Trunks') timeline, Earth is being destroyed by two killer androids. Trunks also informs Goku that no one can stop the androids in his timeline because all of the Z fighters except for Gohan are dead (even Goku!!). Trunks explains that he doesn't want this to happen to the present timeline, and that is why he came back--to warn everyone. Trunks also explains that Goku will die from a heart virus very soon. Luckily for Goku, Trunks brought Goku an antidote from the future that will cure Goku's impending condition. Trunks says that his mother was right about Goku--that Goku is someone you can trust. After Trunks mentions this, Goku asks Trunks who Trunks' mother is. The answer is...Bulma!!! Goku then asks who Trunks' father is, and Goku is very surprised to learn that Vegeta is Trunks' father. After Trunks has finished warning Goku about everything, Trunks returns to his future timeline. Goku, not being allowed to tell anyone what Trunks told him (if he does, Trunks might not be born), returns to all the other Z fighters. When everyone asks Goku what the mysterious kid said, Goku answers with "nothing important". However, Piccolo with his very good ears heard the whole conversation. Piccolo then decides to tell everyone the entire story (apart from the fact that Trunks was Bulma and Vegeta's future son).moreless

  • My blood was rushing the entire time watching this episode!

    Trunks takes Goku to an isolated area to tell him all of the secrets he's been hiding. He tells him he came from the future, and how the current timespace will be decimated by Dr. Gero, the architect behind the Red Ribbon Army's, androids that are superior to even him! His reasons for traveling back was to defeat Frieza, and hand Goku the cure to his heart virus. With this information, Earth's special forces go out to train.



    The essence of hotbloodedness. The previous episodes of Frieza and King Cold getting their asses handed to them did a good job of building up to this moment. They were once almighty and powerful, and were defeated by Trunks, yet is having a hard time against these other warriors in the future. Your teeth were just grinching from all the excitement this was oozing out. The little background story behind his origins is a plus too.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Goku: (to Trunks) Your mother knows me? Am I going to meet her, or do I already know her now?
      Trunks: Now.
      Goku: Oh, wow! I know your mom, huh? That's bizarre! Does she live by me or something?
      Trunks: (pointing at the group of Z-Fighters and Bulma) She's standing right there.
      Goku: (falls down laughing) Bulma's your mother?!
      Vegeta: (not hearing the conversation) ...That guy just pointed his finger and Kakarot fell down.

    • Vegeta: Another Super Saiyan! I've got to have it! I've got to experience it!

    • (Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan.)
      Bulma: What's going on guys!? Goku has blonde hair!

    • Trunks: Father, you're so tough and proud, hard and cold like a rock. But still, deep down, your heart beats like mine does... I know you feel... I'm your son and I will always love you. I'm glad I got to see you dad. Farwell young mother, may the good spirits keep you safe.

    • Vegeta: What?!
      Trunks: Nothing.
      Vegeta: It's a pink shirt, ok? You like it so much you can have it! Here, take it!
      Trunks: No thanks.

    • Gohan: Uh, at least that guy doesn't have his sword out anymore.
      Krillin: Yeah, and your dad put his finger away too.

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Trunks: In three years, two killer androids will appear...

      Trunks's story is incredibly similar to the Terminator movies about a bleak future involving machines, an unexpected messenger from the future and a certain person (Goku) needed to survive in the past.
