Future Trunks to Mecha Frieza before firing the attack

Burning Attack (バーニングアタック Bāningu Atakku) is one of Future Trunks' signature attacks.


Future Trunks performs a series of rapid arm movements before placing his palms forward, with the thumbs and index fingers touching each other to form a diamond shape. Then, he fires an energy sphere from his palms towards the opponent.

Future Trunks using the Burning Attack against Broly

Future Trunks first performs this technique against Future Android 18, while fighting the androids before traveling to the past, although it is blue in color.[7]

In the past, he uses it to distract Mecha Frieza so that he could slice him into pieces. When it is fired against Mecha Frieza to distract him, Frieza dodges the attack and growls to himself about what he will do to Trunks when he gets ahold of him (in the manga and Kai, he mocks Trunks for missing), but Future Trunks then appears above him and slashes him with his sword.

Later, Future Trunks uses an attack similar to the Burning Attack, but without the arm movements and of blue color, against Android 14 during their battle on the Glacier.[8]

Future Trunks using the Burning Attack against Hatchiyack

He uses the Burning Attack on Broly on New Planet Vegeta in an attempt to defend his father Vegeta, but to no avail, as Broly is unfazed by the attack and knocks out Future Trunks with a punch to the chin.[9]

Future Trunks also uses the attack to help defeat Hatchiyack, although it is also blue in color.[10]

Future Trunks uses the Burning Attack in the Dragon Ball Super manga, as a Super Saiyan 2, to finish off Future Dabura and Future Babidi, preventing them from resurrecting Future Majin Buu. He also uses the technique in the anime in his Super Saiyan Anger form during his first fight with Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black. After successfully dragging him to the ground, Trunks blasts Black with a point-blank Burning Attack, which erupts into a huge pillar shaped explosion.

Future Trunks Super Buu Another Road

Burning Attack in Another Road

Burning Attack is seen in various games, almost always accompanying Future Trunks, such as Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Saiyajin Zetsumetsu Keikaku, the Butōden series, Dragon Ball Z: The Legend (where the attack encircles the opponent and explodes), Dragon Ball Z: Taiketsu, Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors, the Budokai Tenkaichi series, Dragon Ball Heroes, Dragon Ball Xenoverse and Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z. Even in Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors, Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury and Dragon Ball GT: Transformation, Trunks has this attack from the time he is playable. Future Gohan uses this attack in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road.

Future Trunks doing the rapid movements in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

Burning Attack is used in Future Trunks' ultimate move in the Budokai series. In Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 and Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World, he uses it in conjunction with his sword in the Burning Slash technique. It is an enormous wave of energy that decimates the entire field in this video game series, while it is a regular blast of energy in Dragon Ball Z: Sagas and the Legacy of Goku series.

The technique appears in Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2, under the name Buster Cannon. In Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden, it mistakenly appears under the name Buster Cannon (which also appears in the game under the name Buster Flash) and is Future Trunks' Air Ultimate Combo.

The explosion it causes after hitting the opponent

Burning Attack is the first offensive technique performed by Time Patrol Trunks in Dragon Ball Online. When Time Patrol Trunks uses the technique in a cinematic cut of player's tutorial, he performs the traditional series of rapid arm movements and stance; however the color (blue) and power differ because he performs it in his base form. The actual skill, still blue in color, is learned at level 44 by Sword Masters.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, it can be obtained as a Super Skill for the Future Warrior in Parallel Quest 19: Let's Train.

In Dragon Ball Fusions, Future Trunks and Vegeta's EX-Fusion, Vegenks, uses this move. It can also be learned by the Dragon Ball Super incarnation of Future Trunks in his base form.
