"Future" Trunks Saga
Main article: "Future" Trunks Saga In the anime, Shin aided Trunks by giving him instructions as to how to defeat Dabura. After their battle against the Organization of Babidi, Goku Black killed him during the period of time where he hunted down the Supreme Kais of each Universe.
In the manga, Shin invited Trunks to the Sacred World of the Kai to train him in preparation for Babidi's arrival on Earth. Shin was impressed with Trunks' ability to master the Z-Sword, even trying to finalize his training with by cutting Katchin. However, as Shin was about to toss the metal to Trunks, Kibito was aware of the movements of Babidi so they head to Earth. After some time, Pui Pui and Yakon were defeated with Shin becoming injured. While Trunks was battling Dabura, Dabura spit on the Z-Sword Trunks was wielding but it later broke after Shin demanded Trunks to throw away the sword.
Shin is disappointed that he miscalculated Babidi's ability to be able to have Dabura as his servant. He then exclaimed that he would not allow Babidi to revive Majin Buu but so he then attempted to attack Babidi but Dabura aided him, hitting Shin with a ki blast. Kibito attempted to assist Shin, but he was blasted by Dabura. While Shin was defeated and lying on the ground, Babidi continuously attacked Shin and even choking him with his magic. This torture allowed Trunks to become a Super Saiyan 2 and attacked Dabura and this lead to Babidi's death. Shin then froze Dabura to allow Trunks to kill him. After Trunks killed Dabura, Shin was glad that Majin Buu's revival was prevented as he passed away.

- Future Freedom Fighter Trunks, the Warrior of Hope
Future Trunks thinks to himself there is something different about the mysterious man who he notices it levitating in the air next to Future Kibito who is standing on the ground which surprises him. Future Shin notes there is no need to be surprised as he points out Trunks can do it too referring to him by name. Hearing the floating stranger call him by name puts Future Trunks on guard out of fear they may be another pair of Future Dr. Gero's Androids. Future Trunks asks who they are and how they know his name, and asks them if they are Androids.
Future Kibito offended by Future Trunks' insolence, asks him if he has any idea who the mysterious man is before introducing Future Shin as the Supreme Kai who occupies a position higher than even that of the Kais that Future Trunks is aware of. Future Trunks is still somewhat confused though concludes that Future Kibito is trying to say that Future Shin is a Guardian or something like that. Future Kibito says not exactly and that it would take a great deal of time to explain, but that all he needs to know is that the point is that he and Future Shin stand above the beings that govern their universe. Future Trunks finally understands and Future Shin introduces the Brawy Man standing next to him as his attendant Kibito. Future Trunks says hello to Future Kibito though he remains silent, causing Future Trunks to think to himself that Future Kibito isn't very friendly. Future Shin explains to Future Trunks that they have come to inform him that the Earth and the entire universe are in grave danger. Future Trunks confusedly asks what he is talking about. Future Shin notes his reaction comes as no surprise and says he will explain everything the best he can. He then explains that a great evil is on the urge of awakening from a deep slumber, a terrible creature that once threatened all of existence and is capable of destroying hundreds of worlds in just a few years' time. He then reveals that the being is known as Majin Buu. Future Trunks notes Majin Buu sounds terrifying. Future Shin then tells Future Trunks what he knows of Future Majin Buu including the erroneous backstory that Future Bibidi created him. Bibidi planned to attack Earth and brought the orb in which Future Majin Buu is sealed. Future Shin also explains how he was able to kill Bibidi while Future Majin Buu was still sealed. Deciding to leave the orb where it was for fear they might break it and lead to Future Majin Buu. Future Shin however notes that Future Bibidi had a son Future Babidi who aims to break the seal and unleash Future Majin Buu's power on the Earth. Future Shin believes there is no doubt that Babidi will revive Buu to fulfill his father's wish of laying waste to Earth then move on to other worlds.
Future Trunks notes it sounds awful and Future Shin agrees noting that is why they are there as they need his power to stop Future Babidi noting his Super Saiyan ability will be of great us. Future Trunks notes Future Shin knows a lot about him before asking if the wizard Babidi is really that strong, though Future Shin notes Babidi himself is frail and no real physical threat. Future Shin explains that its deadlinesslies in Babidi's strange magic making him a difficult foe and that he's capable of controlling the minds of the evil and covetous. Future Kibito notes Future Babidi uses this sinister technique to afford himself a large army of loyal minions who do his bidding.
Future Trunks notes he doesn't think he's ever fought anyone who uses magic. In order to prepare Future Trunks for the battle ahead, and they will need him to join them on in the Sacred Land of the Kais and wield the a sword of legend. Future Trunks says he's not sure how much he can help, but if it is to defend peace he'll join them. However before he does so he asks to be given some time to speak with his mother and take care of a few things before leaving. Future Shin understands and once Future Trunks is prepared to leave he should come speak to him again.
