Dragon Ball Z’s (DBZ)’s Trunks, the son of Bulma and Vegeta, is among the most memorable characters from the show, which makes his swords just as iconic as he is. Though Trunks mainly relies on his Super Saiyan abilities, which he gets from his Saiyan side, his Brave Sword and Future Trunks’ sword gives him the extra boost he needs to save the day.
Unlike most anime where swords are katanas, Trunks’ swords are decidedly western inspired and feature a classic Medieval design. It serves as a nod to his father, Vegeta, who also uses blades that resemble a longsword in Dragon Ball Super and Dragon Ball Z.
What’s the Name of Trunks’ Sword?
Trunks uses two swords in the Dragon Balls franchise. The most famous of these is the Brave Sword which has a red scabbard and a simple two-edged blade. You can think of it as his regular business days sword for playing the role of evil slayer hero.
The Brave Sword is also known as the Future Trunks sword which appears in Dragon Ball Z. The sword is made of ki energy from Earth which gives it additional powers. Despite this, the sword is later broken by Android 18.
Future Trunks’ sword has a more legendary reputation because he used it to destroy Frieza and King Cold’s soldiers in the manga in full super hero style. In Dragon Ball Super, he even used it against Goku Black and Future Zamasu.
The Future Trunks’ sword also appeared in a number of Dragon Ball video games, particularly in Dragon Ball Heroes where he uses it to fight against Majin Buu.
Trunks’ Swords Has Special Powers
Trunks’ Brave Sword has special abilities owed to the enchantments left on it by Tapion in Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon. Trunks gets the sword after Tapion defeats Hirudegarn because Tapion knew that Future Trunks’ would have the sword.
At this stage, the sword is mostly cosmetic, but in the hands of Future Trunks, it’s able to produce powerful ki energy blasts.
