Future Trunks and Future Mai have returned to the present timeline in their time machine so that Future Trunks can train with Goku and Vegeta.
Prison Planet Gathering Saga
On Beerus' Planet, Goku and Vegeta continue their training, still attempting to land as much as a single blow on Whis but fail to do so. Shin, who has also visited the planet along with Old Kai calls for a lunch break. Future Mai (another visitor) urgently heads to the others to tell them that Future Trunks has been kidnapped and Goku confirms that he is unable to sense Trunks' energy.
From behind Mai, another being appears introducing himself as Fu. While Goku and Vegeta are unfamiliar with who Fu is, he in turn knows who they both are, having been told about them by Trunks previously who he refers to as his friend. Shin asks if he is from the future also and Fu confirms that he is before telling them all that Trunks has indeed been kidnapped and is currently imprisoned on the Prison Planet, a place that does exist in the present timeline. Fu opens a space time portal using his sword as Goku and Vegeta prepare to head through and rescue Trunks.
Shin attempts to stop them and seeks backup from Whis, however Whis mentions that it is now time for him to go and wake up Beerus who will surely be angry once he hears the news of Mai and Fu breaking galactic law by using time travel and tells the others to make sure that the pair return to their own time line before he returns with Beerus. As Whis moves out of sight he begins to question the character of Fu, believing that he is planning something but decides to leave things up to Goku and Vegeta.
Goku, Vegeta, Mai and Fu arrive on the Prison Planet where the former soon feel a large energy heading directly towards them targeting Fu. Goku intercepts the blow from an attacking Super Saiyan 4 Goku: Xeno, Goku decides to go all out and transforms into Super Saiyan Blue. The match appears to be evenly fought with Fu secretly urging them to keep fighting as it benefits him. Vegeta soon realizes that Goku's opponent is indeed another Goku. They pause briefly but continue once again as Goku finds the prospect of finding another version of himself to be exciting. Goku: Xeno meanwhile is unsure of the power that the other Goku appears to be using.
In the game, Super Saiyan Blue Goku defeats Super Saiyan 4 Goku: Xeno, who notes that Goku is a step above him. After Goku: Xeno catches his breath, Goku asks him for an explanation and Goku: Xeno explains that he heard that Fu was scheming on a strange planet and so got caught on purpose while out on patrol to investigate.
Seeing the look on Fu's face, Vegeta realizes that he's up to something and Fu tells him that where they are is an experimental place that he created and he is taking powerful fighters from different planets and different era's and having them fight there confirming that he was one who also took Trunks. Mai demands that he explain what his purpose for doing this is only for Fu to casually explain that it's just out of fun and curiosity. Vegeta becomes angry and soon fires a blast at Fu though he sends it away by opening another space distortion that it passes through. Fu gives Vegeta a Dragon Ball and explains that other strong people have the other six and they must collect them all if they wish to escape and that this will be a free for all as he teleports himself away to a place where he continue watching the battles from afar.
Meanwhile Trunks wakes up in a cell. In the manga Cooler breaks into the cell and demands a Dragon Ball. In the anime the doors open allowing him to leave, however as soon as he heads outside he is confronted by Cooler who demands one of the Dragon Balls from him though Trunks has no idea what he means. Elsewhere, Fu has headed backed to his lab where he can watch over all the battles as he tells Cunber that soon it will be his turn to get involved.
In the game, Cooler and Future Trunks have a battle after Cooler has broken Trunks out of prison, the two then leave the prison. At the same time Goku and Vegeta defeat Full Power Bojack and his gang as Fu watches.
In the manga, in the Slum Area of the Prison Planet, Future Trunks battles against Bojack for the possession of the Two-Star Special Dragon Ball. When Bojack attempts to counter attack Trunks, he is hit with a surprise Death Beam belonging to Cooler. Trunks thanks Cooler who in turn tells him that he should not let his guard down until he is sure his enemy is dead. After realizing prior that Future Trunks did not have a Special Dragon Ball of his own, Cooler partners up with him in an attempt to escape the planet, finding his Saiyan ally to be useful. Future Trunks then see's Oolong and is surprised at why he would be on the planet along with them.
Meanwhile in the Green Area, Goku: Xeno has gone off alone in search of Fu, leaving behind Goku, Vegeta and Future Mai. When Vegeta voices his vow to capture Fu in order to make him tell them where Trunks is, a flying communications device approaches and with Fu speaking through it, tells them that others will now be coming for them in order to get the Special Dragon Ball in their possession. The Saiyan pair then feel a powerful ki approaching and immediately turn into Super Saiyan Blue as the evil Saiyan named Cunber, bound in restraints lands before them.
Goku rushes in for an attack but Cunber catches the incoming Goku with an attack that is able to corrupt the opponent's ki. This causes Goku to drop out of his Super Saiyan Blue form and into a Super Saiyan: Berserk. Vegeta tosses the Special Dragon Ball to Mai to hold on to as he now finds himself defending against a Goku who has turned on him, his mind having been overtaken. After Goku smashes Vegeta into the ground he soon turns on Mai but he is intercepted by the sudden appearance of Trunks. Cooler also arrives for assistance, knocking Goku backwards with a whip of his tail.
Fu voices his surprise at how Trunks was able to escape the Slum Area even though he had put handcuffs on him that seal ki as well as his apparent team up with Cooler. He goads Cooler by saying that he should have brought his brother Frieza to the planet instead due to him having the stronger transformation. Cooler however responds by saying that whatever Frieza can do, he can do also as he transforms into a Golden new form. Cooler leaps into the air and powers up a Golden Super Nova which he launches directly at Goku. The amount of power given out causes Cooler to power back down to his Fourth Transformation but the attack was enough to knock Goku down.
Cooler then proceeds to engage Cunber but is swiftly defeated, before Cunber can kill Cooler, he is saved by Future Trunks. Super Saiyan God Goku and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta then arrive and knock Cunber back with a combined kick, seeing Goku's Super Saiyan God form Cunber is enraged and breaks his restraints. Mai blinds Cunber with a flashbang but as soon as he can see again he charges Super Saiyan God Goku - only to find it was Oolong in disguise, Cunber is then immediatly attacked by the now fused Saiyans - who used the Potara Shin had given Mai to become Vegito Blue once again. As Vegito and Cunber battle, Majin Ozotto appears before deciding to leave, noting that Vegito and Cunber are too troublesome. Cooler grabs Trunks and follows Ozotto through the portal he opened, aiming to find out more about the Special Dragon Balls.
In the anime, Goku becomes Super Saiyan 2 when Cunber appears, and rushes him along with Vegeta only to be corrupted. Vegeta then battles Super Saiyan: Berserk Goku until Future Trunks arrives, Vegeta has Future Trunks - now a Super Saiyan - engage Goku while he heads to fight the Evil Saiyan. Vegeta is stopped by Cooler, who proceeds to battle Goku - when it appears he is losing he becomes Golden Cooler and knocks him down with one punch, before firing a Golden Supernova at Cunber, though it has no effect.
As Trunks goes to check on Goku, he see's that he has now regained his senses. Mai then removes a pair of Potara from her pocket, having been given to her by Shin before heading to the Prison Planet. While they begin the process to fuse together, Trunks rushes in to draw Cunber's attention away but he is beaten without effort while Golden Cooler's repeated volley of ki blasts has no effect. The two Saiyans fuse to become Vegito who transforms into Super Saiyan Blue as he heads directly for Cunber.
In the manga, the battle between Super Saiyan Blue Vegito and Super Saiyan Cunber heats up as Vegito decides to get serious by revealing the Kaio-ken. Cunber retorts by saying he too will get serious and uses a Power Ball to transform into a Golden Great Ape.
Now in the Chaos Area of Prison Planet, Trunks asks Cooler why he decided to go after Ozotto and he responds by telling him that Ozotto seemed to know where the Dragon Balls are. There they soon see King Cold badly injured up against a rock while the rest of his forces lay dead around him. Just then the Ghost Warriors of Cell, Kid Buu, Bojack, Turles and Lord Slug appear. They battle Future Trunks and Cooler but any attacks against the Ghost Warriors prove futile as they turn into smoke and reform back to normal immediately. Cooler transforms into Golden Cooler and it is at this point that King Cold is revealed to still be alive, complimenting his son on how strong he has become since the last time he saw him. King Cold shows him the Four-Star Special Dragon Ball and asks if Cooler will fight along side him and for him. However Cooler fires a Death Beam]] through him, killing him, not wanting to be taken advantage of and recovers the Dragon Ball from him.
Just then Majin Ozotto arrives nearby, thankful for Trunks and Coolers appearance allowing him to track down the machine that is responsible for creating the Ghost Warriors and plans to destroy it. Ozotto then notices the presence of another behind him and turns to see Hatchiyack who he can sense has a Dragon Ball on him too.
In the anime, having saved Trunks, Vegito orders him to stay back as he heads into battle with Cunber. The two fighters clash briefly with Cunber commenting on how amazed he is that he has found a worthy opponent and that destroying him will bring him enjoyment. Cunber charges up a Désastre Claw which he directs towards Vegito, sending him crashing back into the cliffside. In response, Vegito uses the Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken and engages in combat with Cunber once again. Meanwhile, Future Mai assists Trunks in moving away from the battlefield though he mentions how incredible the two battling warriors energy is.
As Vegito and Cunber continue to battle it out, Cooler watching from above notices the chain surrounding the Prison Planet beginning to crack. Cunber fired up an even more powerful energy blast than before and Vegito responds by using the Final Kamehameha to counter it. After a struggle on both sides, the blasts cancel each other out though a section of the chain breaks. Cunber launches a Power Ball into the sky which causes him to transform into a Golden Great Ape and fires another blast at Vegito though he immediately splits back into Goku and Vegito having used up all their power. As Cunber continues his rampage, launching blasts in the surrounding area, the barrier covering the Prison Planet begins to crack though it goers unnoticed by Fu who is eager for the fighting to continue.
In the manga, seeing Cunber finish his transformation into a Golden Great Ape and knowing that the Kaio-ken will not last long Vegito rushes to defeat him. The two eventually end up in an evenly matched beam struggle: Final Kamehameha vs. Hard Disaster Laser, however Vegito suddenly defuses. However before Cunber's attack can kill Goku and Vegeta, Super Fu appears and sends it away. Fu appeared because his computer warned him that the battle was getting too intense and was threatening the seal on the Prison Planet, Cunber attacks him but uing Double Sword Style, Time Cutter Fu manages to cut Cunber's tail off. Now normal once more, Cunber fires an attack at Goku and Vegeta only for Goku: Xeno and Vegeta: Xeno - both in Super Saiyan 4 - to appear and block the attack.
In the anime, having defused back into Goku and Vegeta, Goku suggests cutting off Cunber's tail to revert him back to normal. As Cunber fires yet another blast at the Saiyan pair, Goku and Vegeta avoid it and fly directly upward, transforming into Super Saiyan in the process and attempt to get to Cunbers tail but even at his great size he proves to be swift enough to defend himself.
As he steps on Goku, Future Trunks rushes in to help and tries to cut off the Golden Great Ape's tail with his sword but is struck hard to the ground. Along with his father, they fire a volley of blasts though they do no damage to him. Even when Golden Cooler fires blasts of his own, Cunber is still unfazed.
Meanwhile Fu continues to watch the battle from his laboratory, smitten by the current events when a nearby computer informs him of the damage to the Prison Planet's barrier and decides to go to the battle himself to control matters.
Goku still remains under the foot of Cunber, struggling to get free but is them seemingly crushed. However Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan Blue and throws Cunbers foot off of him. Charging directly towards Cunber, Goku uses the Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken x20 and strikes Cunber in the face though he is unmoved. Goku fires a Kamehameha though the move is blocked.
The ongoing battle causes the barrier to break down even more when suddenly Fu arrives, telling Cunber to watch what he's doing as he declares that he will rein him in. Fu powers up into a an empowered state and gathering the energy from the Power Ball to his sword, he strikes at Cunber which causes him to revert to his normal state.
Cunber throws a punch at Fu but he easily avoids it. While the others comment on what he just did, Fu tells them to continue their battle as he teleports away, avoiding Coolers blast in the process. Cunber powers up once more and Goku vows to take him on as he transforms into a Super Saiyan God as Cunber appears to recognise it.
Super Saiyan God Goku battles it out against Cunber but is defeated once again though the chains holding Prison Planet break down even further in the process. Meanwhile at Fu's laboratory, Fu finds that all of his monitors and equipment have been destroyed by an unknown assailant causing him to become deeply angry.
Prison Planet Awakening Saga
In the manga, in response to Goku: Xeno and Vegeta: Xeno's arrival, Cunber generates a tail made of shadow - increasing his power level back to it's normal level. In response to this Goku: Xeno and Vegeta: Xeno immediately fuse into Super Saiyan 4 Vegito: Xeno, who engages in battle with Cunber. As the battle goes on Goku interferes, having re-attained the complete Ultra Instinct.
In the anime, Goku, now having reverted to his normal form attempts to attack Cunber but is easily overwhelmed and beaten without mercy. Cunber steps on and blasts away at a helpless Goku and attempts to finish him off for good but the blast is deflected by the immediate arrival of Goku: Xeno and Vegeta: Xeno in their Super Saiyan 4 forms. Cunber says that he does not know who they are but is willing to take on all challengers.
Cunber vows to cut loose and begins his transformation into a Super Saiyan 3. With his Ki being described as being incredible, Vegeta: Xeno suggests using the Potara to fuse as a one time exception and the two become Super Saiyan 4 Vegito: Xeno.
Vegito: Xeno charges into battle with Cunber and the intensity causes more chains to shatter. Vegito: Xeno fires a Kamehameha and Cunber counters with an attack on his own. After a mighty struggle, Vegito: Xeno overpowers and seemingly defeats Cunber, pushing him into and destroying the final chain and the seal around the Prison Planet.
The fusion then runs out and Goku: Xeno and Vegeta: Xeno appear once more just as Fu arrives. Realizing that the Saiyans were the one responsible for destroying his laboratory, Fu powers up into his Super Fu form. Knowing that his plan has been ruined he decides to punish them all for what they have done.
As Goku twitches, Goku: Xeno and Vegeta: Xeno announce that it is their mission as the Time Patrol to capture him and head into battle to confront him.
