It’s been a while since I’ve posted here on Majin Planet and I’m rather sorry for the sudden stop in content. To make up for that today I bring you the first look at Black Goku. Of course, many of you including myself when I first heard about the main villain of the upcoming arc to be called Black Goku I instantly remembered the website back in the day called BlackGoku.com
Black Goku isn’t really Black
I’ve seen a few fans and other news reports state that the new villain is a Black colored Goku. This is false as in Japan the term “black” is often used to showcase a darker version of the same character. Such as Dark Yugi or Yami Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh. It just means he’s a Dark Goku which I expect is what he’ll be called when Super is done in English.
Future Trunks Returns
I’ve talked about it a little, but as we have known since the first interview a few months ago hinted at the coming of a fan-favored character from the future returning, we all knew it was Trunks or better known as Future Trunks.
Future Trunks first appeared in Dragon Ball Z when Frieza returned to Earth for revenge, becoming a Super Saiyan Trunks defeated him and his father King Cold much to the shock of the other Z Fighters. It was then revealed his name was Trunks and he was from 20 years in the future to which the world was overrun by two Killer Androids and worst off Goku and the rest of the Z Fighters were all dead.
Long story short, Trunks helped Goku and others save their future from becoming Trunks to which he gains the skills and power to return to his time and save his future. That was the last we’ve seen him in the anime series.
Of course, Trunks has made a number of appearances in the videos game being one of the main characters in the hit Dragon Ball Xenoverse.
What does this all mean?
Well, it basically means the reason Goku and Vegeta didn’t turn white vs Golden Frieza now was that it was gonna clash with this character Black Goku. It was said that the reason the chose Blue over White (meaning we would have had Super Saiyan White).
I’m calling it right now, Black Goku is gonna go Super Saiyan White, I don’t know how they will explain him gaining God Ki because as far as we know the other Saiyans don’t exist, such as Gohan, Vegeta, etc. However, Nappa, Raditz, and even Vegeta himself might exist in some form.
Is this Really Future Trunks we know?
We’ve had some pictures and another information we’ve been provided tells us that these ‘Future’ Trunks is not the same one we had in the Cell Saga. The reason is that a lot of the artwork and promotional posters such as this one below reveals that Trunks is with Mai.
In case you don’t know this, Mai was an adult in Dragon Ball but was later turned into a child again, she had been featured in a few episodes of Super as well as the films Battle of Gods and Resurrection of F. It was sort of played off that she is Trunks’ girlfriend now.
This is rather interesting to see her on the good side with Trunks. My theory behind this all at some point in the future, Black Goku does something that causes Bulma to build a Time Machine in the same sort of fashion she had done in the future for Future Trunks to defeat the Androids. For whatever the reason is, this Trunks is the Kid version of Trunks we have seen since the Cell Saga (as a baby then and later a 7-year-old in the Buu Saga).
This opens up many questions but we’ll just have to wait until Episode 47 to kick things off.
