- Future Trunks recognises Mai by sight in the manga whereas in the anime he only finds out once her name is called out.
- Future Trunks explains to Mai what she is like in the future in the anime, he does not in the manga.
- The flashback sequence showing an earlier confrontation between the resistance, Future Trunks and Goku Black is exclusive to the anime.
- When Goku Black poses as Goku, glimpses of Goku can be seen. This is reminiscent of the opening when Goku does similar poses which shows glimpses of him as a Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan Blue.
