This is a list of all characters originating from Future Trunks' timeline the the special "The History of Trunks". These characters are essentially the same people as those in the main series, but a point of divergence in timelines occurred when Future Trunks arrived in the main series and killed Freeza and King Cold. In Future Trunks' timeline, the Saiyans are practically extinct.

After losing his father from high cholesterol and all of his friends who died battling the Androids, Gohan becomes Earth's last line of defense.

Future Android 17 (未来の人造人間17号, Mirai no Jinzōningen Jū Nana-Gō) is the alternate timeline counterpart of Android 17 seen in the special The History of Trunks.

Future Android 18 (未来の人造人間18号, Mirai no Jinzōningen Jū Hachi-Gō) is the alternate timeline counterpart of Android 18 first seen in the special The History of Trunks. In this version, she is shown to be more sociopathic and cruel, showing no remorse for killing hundreds of innocents. Thirteen years prior to the main story in the special, she murders Future Piccolo, Future Tenshinhan, and Future Krillin along with her brother, Future Android 17.
Future Goku (未来の孫悟空, Mirai no Son Gokū) is the alternate timeline counterpart of Goku that appeared in the timeline in which Future Trunks and Future Gohan lived. He makes his only appearance in the special, The History of Trunks, where in this version, he died from high cholesterol due to eating too much bacon. Due to being an irresponsible and neglectful parent, Gohan ultimately lost every ounce of love and care he barely had left in him after Goku died and when the former reached adulthood, he finally became disillusioned with him. He ultimately means nothing to Future Gohan now and he doesn't think of him as someone he lost when he got angry (Piccolo and Krillin were the only ones he saw as family, unlike Goku and Chi-Chi). In fact, Future Gohan has become so bitter of Goku for his long absence in his life that being compared to him comes off as an insult to the half-Saiyan.
Future Krillin (未来のクリリン, Mirai no Kuririn) is the alternate timeline counterpart of Krillin who lives in Future Trunks' timeline. He was first seen mourning over Goku's death in front of his house along with the rest of the Z-Fighters. He was killed six months later by Future Android 17 and Future Android 18, who simultaneously blasted him in the eyes. Much like his present counterpart, he appears to have a crush on Android 18 as he tries to come up with a pickup line for her before getting blasted.
Future Piccolo (未来のピッコロ, Mirai no Pikkoro) is the alternate timeline counterpart of Piccolo who lives in Future Trunks' timeline. He was first seen along with the rest of the Z-Fighters mourning for Goku's death in front of his house and was killed six months later by the Androids. Due to Piccolo's death, Future Kami also dies as well, rendering the Dragon Balls being permanently turned into stone. His death (along with likely Krillin's) left Gohan mentally shattered, causing him to slightly go insane and begin hallucinate that Piccolo's spirit was talking to him.
Future Kami (未来の神, Mirai no Kami) is the alternate timeline counterpart of Kami who lives in Future Trunks's timeline. While not apearing in the special, he died when Future Piccolo died, as theire spirits are linked. Future Bulma kinda mentions him by saying "God bless him" (as "kami" means God in japanese)
Future Vegeta (未来のベジータ, Mirai no Bejīta) is the alternate timeline counterpart of Vegeta and is Future Trunks' father and Future Bulma's "husband". He was first seen being pissed over Goku's death from having high cholesterol, causing him to reply "Son of a bitch!" (which Future Trunks as a baby immediately copied). Much like the rest of the Z-Fighters, he was killed six months after Goku's death by Future Android 17. Future Trunks never got the chance to meet his father in person since he was murdered by the Androids while he was still a baby.
- Unlike the original series, Bulma does not hide to Trunks about Vegeta's true nature (though to a very limited extent, this was a different timeline, so Vegeta could have actually changed a bit), instead tells him that he was an abrasive loner who had trouble making friends, adding that the only thing he and Trunks has in common was the same gender. She did, however, apparently hide the fact that he was originally a very dangerous enemy to the Z fighters and actually attempted to kill them (this was shown as Future Trunks reacted with complete shock to learn his father was once the Z fighters' adversary).
- The only thing Future Gohan remembers about Vegeta was a being on a receiving end of a beatdown by him after the events of Planet Namek.
Future Yamcha (未来のヤムチャ, Mirai no Yamucha) is the alternate timeline counterpart of Yamcha, and after finding out Bulma was pregnant with Vegeta's child (Trunks), he ends up commiting suicide by hanging himself.
Future Tenshinhan (未来の天津飯, Mirai no Tenshinhan) is the future counterpart of Tenshinhan. He was one of the people who mourned for the death of Goku due to having high cholesterol from eating too much bacon. He was killed by Future Android 18 six months later, meeting the same fate as the rest of the Z-Fighters, minus Gohan, Yamcha (who committed suicide prior to Goku's death), and Trunks.
Future Chiaotzu (未来の餃子, Mirai no Chaozu) is the future counterpart of Chiaotzu. He was first seen in the special outside Goku's House, learning about the death of Goku from having high cholesterol from eating too much bacon. Just like the other Z-Fighters, he dies in the battle against the Androids six months later.
Future Yajirobe (未来のヤジロベー, Mirai no Yajirobē) is the future counterpart of Yajirobe, who was first seen at the beginning of the special, The History of Trunks, mourning for Goku's death along with the rest of the Z-Fighters. He, along with the other Z-Fighters, was killed by the Androids six months later.
Future Chi-Chi (未来のチチ, Mirai no Chichi) is the future counterpart of Chi-Chi who was briefly seen in the special The History of Trunks. Following the death of her husband, she is shown to be one of the few surviving humans, still living in her house on Mount Paozu with her father. In the abridged version, due to her husband's death and her son being completely isolated from her, she seems to be completely broken from reality, constantly knitting a baby sweater for her grandchild (which she does not have).
Future Ox-King (未来の牛魔王, Mirai no Gyūmaō) is the future counterpart of the Ox-King, who was briefly seen in the special The History of Trunks. In the special, he is one of the few surviving humans and lives with his daughter, Future Chi-Chi, at Mount Paozu.
Future Master Roshi
Future Master Roshi (未来の武天老師, Mirai no Muten Rōshi) is the future counterpart of Master Roshi, who was briefly seen at the Stinger of the special The History of Trunks. It was revealed that he along with Future Turtle, Future Oolong, and Future Puar have survived the Android's attack by hiding in a submarine named the USS M'Dick. He was last seen laughing madly over a joke he made to the group about what it is like riding his submarine.
Future Turtle (未来のウミガメ, Mirai no Umigame) is the future counterpart of Turtle, who was briefly seen hiding in the submarine, the USS M'Dick, along with Future Master Roshi, Future Oolong, and Future Puar at the end of the special The History of Trunks.
Future Oolong (未来のウーロン, Mirai no Ūron) is the future counterpart of Oolong, who was briefly seen at the Stinger of the special The History of Trunks. He, along with Future Master Roshi, Future Turtle, and Future Puar, have survived the Android's attack by hiding in Master Roshi's submarine, the USS M'Dick.
Future Puar (未来のプーアル, Mirai no Pūaru) is the future counterpart of Puar, who was briefly seen at the Stinger of the special The History of Trunks. He is one of the few survivors on the planet, avoiding the Androids' rampage by hiding in the USS M'Dick along with Future Master Roshi, Future Oolong, and Future Turtle. In a deleted scene, it was revealed that he was the rope Future Yamcha used to hang himself after learning about Future Bulma being pregnant with Future Vegeta's baby.
Future Dr. Briefs
Future Dr. Briefs (未来のブリーフ博士, Mirai no Burīfu Hakase) is the future counterpart of Dr. Briefs, who was mentioned in the special The History of Trunks. In the special, it was revealed by Future Bulma that he left Earth to search for New Namek somewhere in the cosmos, only to find New Fake Namek, much to his frustration.
Future Tapion is a hero from Conuts that gave Future Trunks his sword, he's the future counterpart to Tapion from the 13th DBZ movie.
- Actually Tapion giving him the sword was an mere geuss by fans as in the main timeline Tapion gaves it to Trunks at the end of the movie, and it can't be the same sword as present timeline Trunks cut Hilldegarn's tail (a monster stronger than an Super Saiyan 3, minus Goku who was haxed in said movie) with it and Future Trunks's sword broke when he tried to attack Android 18 - who isn't even an Super Saiyan 2 tier.
