|Debut||Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon|
The Brave Sword is an enchanted sword owned by Tapion during the events of the movie Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon. This blade is given to Trunks at the end of the movie, and later used in the Dragon Ball GT opening.
During the war between Hirudegarn and the Konatsians, Tapion and his young brother Minotia used their Hero's Flutes to hold Hirudegarn at bay. Given this opportunity, a Konatsian Wizard brandished the enchanted sword and used it to slice Hirudegarn in half.
Under Trunks' PossessionEdit
Main article: Future Trunks' sword
After Hirudegarn's defeat, Tapion gives Trunks his sword, stating that it was always meant for him; referencing to the fact that his alternate timeline counterpart, Future Trunks, was almost always seen with his sword. It was kept by him for years as a memento of the close bond he formed with Tapion during his time on Earth. Unlike his future counterpart, he presumably never had much use for the sword during battle, having grown up in a peaceful world.
Even though it is unknown if they ever met in Future Trunks' timeline, the events depicted in Wrath of the Dragon cannot be the exact origin of Future Trunks' sword due to the fact Future Trunks comes from a timeline where the Z Fighters are dead and the Androids reigned supreme. Though, at the end of this movie, the entire credit roll is accompanied by scenes of Future Trunks using his sword.
Future Trunks says that the sword was given to him by someone close to him when he uses the Dragon Balls to repair it in the arcade mode of Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai, and it is stated that Tapion did give his sword to Future Trunks in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast. Future Trunks tells Present Gohan that it is Future Gohan who taught him swordsmanship in Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2.
