"Is this the power of rage...?! Trunks' power is expanding to an amazing rate!"
Super Saiyan Rage (超サイヤ人怒り; Sūpā Saiya-jin Ikari), simply referred to as Super Trunks by all anime supplementary material, is a Super Saiyan transformation assumed by Future Trunks through the power of intense rage during the conflict with Goku Black and Future Zamasu in the alternate timeline.
"If you want to call it a sin, then I don't care!"
In the form's official anime artwork, the user simply has the appearance of Future Trunks' Strengthened Super Saiyan 2 appearance and possess a golden aura. In the anime the appearance the Super Saiyan Rage form primarily resembles a standard Super Saiyan 2. The aura is golden and Trunks gains a blue glow around his body, like an inverted version of Super Saiyan Blue's aura. His aura also emits dense, blue bio-electricity lightning, but even more blue, dense and raging than his Super Saiyan 2 form. Trunks' hair spikes up even further than in his Super Saiyan 2 form and takes on an even more golden color like the Super Saiyan 3 form. Also, when he transforms, his muscles bulk up similar to Super Saiyan Third Grade before the blue glow around his body appears and his muscles return to normal. When experiencing great rage while in the form, Trunks' irises and pupils are temporarily invisible, similar to the Pseudo Super Saiyan and Legendary Super Saiyan forms as well as his father Vegeta's Quake of Fury.
"Who cares about your justice?!"
After absorbing the energy and hope from mankind that had gathered into a Spirit Bomb, Trunks gained a new type of power up in this form, turning his aura completely blue and with his body producing a blue energy aura around him, similarly to how when Goku performs the Spirit Bomb part of the Super Dragon Fist attack in video games, which gives the user a blue aura.
Power and Usage
Like the Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan 2 transformations, the form is gained through intense rage. In the anime, Future Trunks attains it due to his absolute rage at Goku Black and Zamasu blaming him for everything that had happened. The power of this form allows Future Trunks to hold his own against Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black and Future Zamasu at the same time.
In the anime this form is treated as an entirely new transformation. While he previously managed to outmatch Future Zamasu and catch Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black off guard with his Super Saiyan 2 form (after training in the past), the power increase of the Super Saiyan Rage form allows Future Trunks to hold his own against Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black. Later he faces both Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black and the Immortal Future Zamasu alone at the same time and force them on the defensive through strategy to separate them.
In the anime Future Trunks utilizes the form to hold the two off by himself, while Goku and Vegeta travel back to the present in order to find a way to defeat Black and Zamasu. After being defeated and treated by Future Mai, Future Trunks uses this form again to fight the pair, knocking away Future Zamasu with a single blast and defeating Goku Black with a relentless assault.
While fighting against Fused Zamasu, the form is shown to be able to power up even further, through the light energy of mortals across the Earth, gaining a massive boost in power. This power was able to destroy Fused Zamasu's body with ease.
Video game appearances
Super Saiyan Rage makes its debut appearance in Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle, simply under the name Super Saiyan (超サイヤ人, Sūpā Saiya-jin). The form also appears and is given its proper name as in Super Dragon Ball Heroes.
Super Saiyan Rage later appears in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. However, he is not playable. He only appears in the cutscenes in gameplay in story mode. Strangely, the NPC model of Super Saiyan Rage Trunks does not match the one in the cinematic cutscenes.
- Super Saiyan Rage was the name given to the Super Saiyan 2 transformation in Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku II.
