Future Bardock about to fight his grandson

Future Bardock appears on New Namek when Future Babidi tries to attack Future Dende for stealing his wishes to Porunga. When Future Dende cries for help, Porunga takes this for a wish and makes Future Bardock appear. After Future Bardock's attack, Future Babidi leaves New Namek. Future Trunks notes Future Bardock seems familiar somehow.

In the Other World, after Future Pikkon's victory over Future Janemba, Future Pikkon tells Gohan's spirit is just like Future Goku's. Gohan tells Future Pikkon he would like to see Future Goku and asks if there is someone like him in the Other World as well, looking for Future Gohan. Future Pikkon says there is, and he was seen Future Goku a little while ago. With Future Pikkon's guidance, they encounter Future Bardock. Future Pikkon tells he is different, but looks very similar to Gohan. Future Bardock suddenly launches an attack on Future Pikkon, and then attacks Gohan; however, Gohan defeats him. Future Bardock congratulates Gohan and he is then recruited for the battle against Future Super Buu. As they make to search again, the deceased Future Goku appears before them. Future Goku and Future Bardock fight against each other in a sparring match, and then he helps Gohan to find his future counterpart. Future Gohan is brought back to life by Future Old Kai, while Future Pikkon and Future Bardock have one day to help.

After the battles against the Dragon Team's clones, Future Janemba, Future Cooler, and Future Broly, the heroes Goku, Gohan, Goten, Future Bardock, and Future Gohan use their Family Kamehameha to wipe out Future Kid Buu, thus saving the future.


Future Bardock is incredibly strong, being able to defeat Future Pikkon and even fight against Potential Unleashed Gohan, and makes a very good fight against Super Saiyan Future Goku.

  • This Bardock could be wished back by the Dragon Balls, but the "one year limit" is used as misinformation by Bandai/Dimps (In the manga, Kami tells that the Shenron CAN bring back to life people who died over a year ago, but only in small groups), so he only stays for a day. The most likely reason is that Future Janemba stole the Dragon Balls along with Future Babidi having one of them at the time.
    • This is proven in the main timeline when Mecha Frieza is resurrected many years after being killed by Future Trunks (though it is unclear if this is a result of Dende restoring the Earth Dragon Balls before the Cell Games as Shenron's powers are somewhat determined by his creator).
    • In the case of Porunga, it is suggested by Shin Budokai - Another Road that Future Bardock can be wished back by Future Porunga as it should be noted that Kami's statements in the manga were in reference to Shenron's powers of resurrection.
