- This article is about the Trunks from the present timeline. For the Trunks who came from the future, see Future Trunks.
Trunks (also known as Kid Trunks) is the present son of Bulma and Vegeta. Influenced by his two parents, Trunks can be too stubborn, prideful, full of energy, arrogant, snobby, bratty, spoiled, and show rude behavior, however after the Buu arc while he remains similar he has progressed to be more of a person with spirit, strong-will, bravery, and be a more humble, respectful, and kind-hearted person, much like his future self.
Trunks is one year older than Goten and one year younger than Ranch. At some point in the future, while he was taught Super Saiyan 4 by his father Vegeta, Trunks also trains with Gohan (mirroring Future Trunks) and learns about his hidden potential being unlocked through Elder Kaioshin's magic, eager in the idea of getting stronger his own way and unlocking his latent power Trunks achieves Potential Unleashed (Mystic/Ultimate Trunks).
Trunks, Bulma, and Yajirobe went to the site where the Dragon Team combated the androids. His young life was put in danger when Dr. Gero shot at the jet they boarded as a means of distracting his opposers while they escaped.
After being saved by his alternate timeline counterpart, Trunks was put into the arms of his mother who promised that he would get use to explosions since they occurred often around her. Bulma was relieved that she finally had someone to love and look out for. Soon,Trunks, Bulma and Yajirobe left the sight by flight, being held by Gohan who took them to Capsule Corporation.
Trunks was with his mother when she went to deliver the detonator for the androids to Krillin. Trunks noticed him as he flew to them, even calling out his name as his mother remained oblivious to Krillin before he slammed into her windshield. Krillin got owned for another time.
Trunks journeyed to Kami's Lookout with his mother, being played with by Gohan before his mother while holding him walked over to Future Trunks. When Bulma revealed that she had created armor for everyone to wear in their fights against Cell, Vegeta said that it was the greatest thing she had produced and Trunks interjected himself, being disappointed when his father said that it even trumped him.
